    It's the opposite for me, where I'm a huge fan of recent stuff like Fables and Greg Rucka's run on Detective Comics, but haven't been able to get into the classic stuff. It helps that I got into comics through a mix of Sandman, post-DKR Batman, Buffy, and Alan Moore books.

    If only Azrael got nominated and Dick Grayson passed to the semi-finals, and we would've gotten Batman vs Batman vs Batman vs Batman.

    match results:

    Batman 7, Martian Manhunter 3

    Joker 5, McGinnis 5

    Batman moves on. Joker and McGinnis are tied, I will let the next person who votes decide the winner, but if we hit midnight tonight and no one has voted I will PM someone.

    and the Joker pulls it out, 6-5. Btw, scott, I'd recommend Batman Beyond. it's simply amazing.

    well that sets up the Consolation finals!

    It's the Martian Manhunter, J'onn J'onzz

    VS.

    The Batman of the Future, Terry McGinnis
    [​IMG]

    My Vote:
    McGinnis. again, Batman Beyond was such a horrible concept that turned out great, and the characterization of Terry was a huge part in that. Yeah, MM's pretty good, but he's not as interesting or well characterized as Batman Beyond.

    J'ONN J'ONZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that guy! It's awesome that he made it to the finals - he didn't deserve to be knocked out of Greatest Superhero in Round Two.... Especially 'cause had I known him and voted for him, he would've moved on (I did the math)!

    Yeah, let's go with Terry. Never been TOO big a fan of Martian Manhunter.

    Haven't seen much of Beyond, and J'onn is a member of the Big Seven.

    Therefore, the Martian gets my vote.

    Tough one. I'll go with Terry, though. J'onn was great in the first season of JL ("A Knight of Shadows"!), but then they took the focus off him and his reduced role hurt the character just slightly. (Well, enough for Terry to beat him in my eyes, anyway.)

    John Jones 5
    Terry McGinnis 3

    CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

    It's Bruce Wayne, the hero of the night!
    [​IMG]

    VS.

    The Joker, a man who just wants to watch the world burn
    [​IMG]

    Again, that's:

    Batman VS. The Joker!

    My vote:
    Batman is the essence of superhero without having any superpowers to speak of. He's just an intelligent badass with a mean streak. He is far and away DC comics' best character.

    BATMAN!

    He's no Superman, but he represents the entire other half of the superhero universe - the vigilantes, the shadows in the night, the dark and bleak and real. I prefer the more idealistic world, but the haunting Dark Knight is among the best of both.
