Please use this forum to vote and to lobby for your favorite hero above. Winners move on to Round 4

Your Heroes battling it out for Round 3 are:

A) Bullwinkle Moose vs Batman

Image VS Image



B) Yoda vs Dr. Who

Image VS Image


C) James Bond vs Westley (The Man in Black)

Image VS Image


D) Rooster Cogburn vs Sherlock Holmes

Voted!

There are some good ones this round but we lost good ones along the way. Lets take a moment and realize that Bullwinkle is still here.

Bond (as the movies played out) versus Westley/the Dread Pirate Roberts can have parallels.
The skills coupled with the image/perception was the key to the success--didn't matter if it was Westley, his predecessors or his successor, Inigo. Same for all the different portrayals of Bond in a way.

Now Yoda may be the master of Jedi Masters, but versus the last Time Lord?

Of course, we can see where this is all going, (I hope).

The many Bullwinkle votes makes me think there's something funny going on here.... collusion perhaps!? Has anyone investigated Bullwinkle's connections to Hootenanny? :wink:

We're going to get Bullwinkle McBullwinklefaced, aren't we?

Yoda is one of the greatest characters in Star Wars, but he's not a hero. The Doctor, on the other hand, is the hero of all time and all space.

That was an easy one. But again, there was a real Rooster Cogburn. This is a damned weird poll.

You realize it’s not necessarily a conspiracy when more than one person disagrees with you, right?

Same way, but I'm pretty sure it came down to a Final Four like it should. Or maybe I just don't remember correctly.

Well you lot gave me more monster nominations the last time around. But fear not, I've had a plan ready for this since the beginning. If you've watched The Next Food Network Star you'll know what's coming...if not you'll find it out next round...

Easy fix, off Batman and Bullwinkle to settle the tie.
