Greatest Hero Round 1(B)

Post by tuttle » Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:26 am

READ THIS BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

Heroes are going head to head in the bracket. (ie. Tarzan vs Conan) so choose one hero from each letter. (Choose ONE hero from the A) category, ONE hero from the B) and so on). If you mess up and pick two from the same category, you should be able to change your vote to correct it. Clear as mud? Ask if you have any questions.

Please use this forum to vote and to lobby for your favorite hero above. Winners move on to Round 2

Your Heroes battling it out for Round 1(B) are:

A) James Bond vs Sir Denis Nayland Smith

Image VS Image



B) The Shadow vs Doc Savage

Image VS Image




C) Westley (The Man in Black) vs Solomon Kane

Image VS Image




D) Tarzan vs Conan

Image VS Image




E) Andrew Jackson vs Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I am not sure this poll is working as intended.

Why did you have to put Jackson and Bonhoeffer in the same bracket? It is like the two one seeds playing each other. Oh well, votes in.

Actually, last year we did monsters and I randomized the field. It turned out kind of sucky because the matchups were kind of lame. Only a couple really hit as good matchups. This time around I tried to give us some good match ups early on, either based on similarity or genre or whatever else. In this case, two men from (relatively) modern history.

Yeah, after I went through all four brackets (this was the first one I opened) I saw the method to your madness and must say I think you did a excellent job of matching competitors for this first round. This is silly as all get out, but, a lot of fun, thanks for doing this tuttle.
