Comics Should Be Good has once again based their Superhero March Madness tournament on “Who would win a fight with a half hour of prep time.” This makes the voting more interesting than the standard popularity contest, and also leads to more entertaining arguments.
Sadly, even though my most popular post detailed the inappropriateness of the word “impossible” when discussing super hero fights when they did this three years ago, it turned out that a refresher course was in order.
With three of the Final Four unchanged, here's hoping I can help in time. Though I doubt it. The same people who say, "We've seen Batman beat Superman." Also say, "There's no way Batman can beat Thor." Even though, per JLA/Avengers we've seen Superman beat Thor. I guess the venn diagram of people who argue about the fights of imaginary musclemen in funny pajamas, and people who've taken "Logic 101" has a tiny cross section.
I first learned of this dire need after foolishly getting pulled into a discussion on the Comic Battles Message Board shortly before the March Madness began.
As a goof, I popped into the middle of folks doubting if there was any way Batman could defeat Thor.
Shameless self-promotion whore that I am, I immediately linked to my original post, referencing the possible method within…
And triggered a geekstorm of incredible proportions.
