    The rules:
    This is one of four threads containing matches.
    Due to the holiday, these threads will be in use for 9 days. Days 1-4 (Jan 26 - Jan 29) are strictly setup time for owners to plead their cases, tell us their team’s strategies, breakdown the match ups, and do whatever else they can/want to do to try and convince you that their team would pull out a victory. Please, let the owners do this on their own with no help.

    On Day 5 (Jan 30) I will post and tell everyone that voting may begin. Any votes cast before I open voting will not count. Look over the matchups and read the strategies, and take into consideration how in-character each character is. Afterwards, use your best judgment to decide who you think has the best chance to win the match. (Note: The length of a writeup the discretion of the owner. Do not punish owners just for having a shorter writeup.)

    To vote, post the team names you think will prevail in each match. Remember to vote for all matches or your vote will not count! The teams with the highest vote total at the end of the 10th day (Feb 3) will get a W while the other will get an L. (Equal votes will result in a tie.)

    The battleground for this week is: The Arctic Fortress Of Solitude

    In Jesus' Name
    Praetor Lemnos
    Mount Joy
    Multiple man
    NightCrawler
    NorthStar

    VS.

    The Nameless Wonders*
    Vision II (Young Avengers) (MM)
    Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) (DM)
    Elijah Snow (DR)
    Traci Thirteen (DR)
    Flow (DR)

    Are you kidding? The Wonders have a good lineup, and you didn't write anything.

    MJ absorbs Mulitple Man. being familiar to the process, NS automatically lets MJ absorb, multiply, spit him out, but continue to absorb the duped version of him keeping NS's powers... after beating the CRAP out of praetor, MJ absorbs him.... preptime done

    no one on the other team has a chance, not even the high tech aliens because Praetor's powers affect all electrical things from cameras to mind control.

    No, not automatically, but it certainly makes you eligible to lose the match.

    OK, let me get this straight: because people don't automatically vote for you in a match featuring ZERO writeups, we're all subhumans?

    Vision and Blue Beetle can both work to manipulate the technology of the Fortress to their own advantage....that gives them a clear edge and why I voted them

    I can't vote for In Jesus' Name, because after Mountjoy absorbs so many characters, he's got to be uber, and this is not a "no-ubers-fight-unless-that's-all-you-have-on-your-team," it's a no-ubers fight.

    have EITHER they been seen EVER manipulating krytonian tech before?

    what makes you think that Supes auto defenses wouldn't see them as a threat to security and kill them before the match starts?

    With no writeups to go on, I'm not sure who to vote for here. AS, if you want my vote, tell me how you would beat each of the members of the other team. It just needs to be five sentences: "We beat Vision by __." "We beat Blue Beetle by __." etc.

    But it can't just be "We beat them because we're more powerful." Tell me an attack your team could do that would work against Vision despite the fact that he can go intangible. Tell me an attack that would work against Flow, despite the fact that he's made out of liquid. And so forth.

    Superman doesn't have lethal auto-defenses. Superman has a gigantic ****ing key that no one can lift to unlock the door.

    The better question is whether MM, NS, MJ, and Lemnos is uber, because that's what you did here.

    AS is expecting a walk in the park victory cos hes against a no show....everyone who has been against a no show has done something in their favour....hell even someone doing a no show battle wrote and still lost due to the line ups...you have to work for your votes AS....

    you can contest peoples reasons for voting as much as you want but without a valid write up to back your complaints up then you havent a leg to stand on

    Well, like I said I needed about five solid sentences to convince me that AS's team would win. But since AS hasn't given me that, I'm going to have to vote for The Nameless Wonders. I just think that's a more powerful team. How would AS deal with Vision's intangibility? How could he hurt Flow's liquid form? Who is to say Elijah Snow couldn't make himself to cold for the horde of multiples to even get near him? I just have too many unanswered questions.

    Nameless Wonders. Whining doesn't get you my vote, son, and I'm not going to actively search for a reason to vote for you like Tim seems to do.
