    I did this tournament two years ago and a lot of the posters seemed to have fun with it. Back then it included all adaptations through the end of 2010. This years tournament will include all theatrical releases through the end of 2012. The winner of the previous tournament is The Dark Knight. You can find the previous thread Here No matches from the previous tournament will be repeated. First to ten votes, wins. Now, HERE WE GO!


    Battle of the Marvel Super Teams

    Other than First Class, I think all of the X-Men films are terrible.

    Avengers very easily.

    The Avengers. I appreciate how important X-Men was in reviving the genre, but the first film doesn't really hold up outside of the lead performances (McKellen, Stewart, and Jackman in particular). The plot and action are just too bare, and most of the real character development is saved for the sequel. X-Men serves as little more than an introduction to the concept and characters. The Avengers is a great spectacle the likes of which X-Men can't touch.

    Do we count just the one Avengers film or the entire MCU since we're counting all of the X-Men films?

    Either way, Avengers ftw :up:

    No it was just the first X-men film vs. Avengers. Avengers advances to round two with a clean sweep of X-men. Next match is

    The Mask

    Possibly just for how hot Cameron Diaz was.

    The Mask is in my top 10 CBMs.

    Batman Forever probably wouldn't make my top 40.

    So yeah, The Mask all the way.

    Also it's not fair to put X-men against Avengers in the first round.

    Where's the fun in that?

    X-men should've went against Superman 2 or Thor.
