    Tough one. I've always liked Doc Ock: he's unquestionably one of Spidey's biggest villains and perhaps I've been brainwashed from Spider-Man:TAS and the comics that were based off that show, but I feel that he's one of the greatest Marvel villains.

    Martian Manhunter just isn't an iconic hero but his character is great. When Justice League started airing, he automatically became one of the best team members (as far as I'm concerned), along with Batman and Wonder Woman, thanks to stories like "A Knight of Shadows" and "Comfort and Joy". I think that as time went on, he became eclipsed by better developed characters like Hawkgirl and Green Lantern, but there's more to him than there is to Doc Ock.

    Really hard choice but I'll go with Martian Manhunter, because depth gets you further than being a character who has recognition, for me.

    Doctor Octopus. I love Martian Manhunter, but I've never really seem him done well. If you ask me, he's the WRONG type of Superman; he has the mixed-bag of powers, he has the origin, but he doesn't really have a purpose or motive. He's just... there.

    I mean, Doc Ock isn't the deepest villain, but he's a top-tier character for sure.

    Martian Manhunter. Incredible and unique character, and I always felt that Doc Ock was overrated.

    Interesting.... It's a double-tie.... Very well - they'll both move on, and we'll have ourselves a 5-way Group Finals!

    1. Spider-Man (One of the best superheroes ever, along with Batman.)
    2. Joker (The Mark Hamill portrayal alone is enough reason to rank him above the below three.)
    3. Magneto (Classic villain.)
    4. Martian Manhunter
    5. Doc Ock

    1. The Joker
    2. Martian Manhunter
    3. Doc Ock
    4. Magneto
    5. Spidey (I prefer him to both Doc Ock and Magneto, but he wins everything. And I want The Joker or Martian Manhunter to win the group)

    My vote:
    1. Magneto (Well, I think he's better than The Joker!)
    2. Joker (But he's still pretty damn awesome.)
    3. J'onn J'onzz (I made my argument last round.)
    4. Doc Ock (Overrated.)
    5. Spider-Man (There is a method to my madness....)

    And so, with our Groups completed, let's take a quick review at the game thus so far.

    GROUP ONE
    GROUP TWO
    GROUP THREE
    GROUP FOUR

    And so, our finalists thus far include:
    GREEN GOBLIN (NORMAN OSBORN)
    BATMAN
    SPIDER-MAN
    DAREDEVIL

    But now it's time for a
    TWIST!!!!

    Turns out, we're aiming for SIX finalists - not FOUR! Thus, let's take a look at the second place scores:

    THE RIDDLER- 52% (4% less than the Group Victor)
    ALFRED PENNYWORTH- 48% (19% less than the Group Victor)
    THE JOKER- 67% (3% less than the Group Victor)
    ICEMAN- 52% (8% less than the Group Victor)

    Based on these stats, we have TWO MORE FINALISTS:

    THE RIDDLER
    THE JOKER

    So stay tuned, gang! THE FINALS will begin shortly!

    Yeah, I was debating that back during Group Four whether to put Iceman one-up so he'd be in a tie with the Riddler, but didn't want to deal with a Tiebreaker right before the Finals. You should've voted against Riddler in Group One - that would've changed things.
