So it continues, the CBUB monthly challenge. What started here... http://www.electricf...=0

...is back. Once again, we will separate the men from the boys. Welcome all to the second monthly writing challenge introduced to the CBUB. Let’s do it again…

The Premise

Monthly, a writing challenge will be posted on this portion of the forums. Anybody who wants to write on the CBUB is able to participate. To participate simply create a match that follows the challenge rules to the CBUB main page. Then post a link to that fight on this page. Only one entry per contestant. There will be a two week deadline to post your match. Miss the deadline? Better luck next month. Three judges will pick their favorite matches based on creativity, uniqueness and all that writing mumbo jumbo. The Top Three winners will be announced here with the main winners fight going to the Official CBUB Hall Of Fame board as the writer of the month.

The Judges

Ruinus, Culwych, Marvel Man, Darkender, and Z451

The Deadline

The May Challenge will take place between the days of May 7th through the 18th.

The Challenge/Rules

Role Reversal: Take any well known hero and villain and switch their roles. The once much-loved hero that fought for truth and justice is now a power hungry villain, the criminal villain mastermind is how a force of good. It doesn't matter which hero and villain you decide to switch, any is allowed. Remember though, you are just switching their side on the hero/villain scale, not their powers, their personality, costume, whatever. Try to tell us why these people are fighting on these new sides.

Hey, would it be possible for the judges to rate the matches in the tournament? I assume that they are all at voting level, and I think it'd help get matches more votes 'n stuff. (Really, I just don't want mine to scratch again)

I wouldn't really worry about scratching if I were you, man. That's why CBUB Match Judges were appointed, so matches had a better chance of being rated fairly. Anybody with a colored title can now rate matches. I think extra care was taken in deciding who was given these titles.

And besides, if anyone wants to go the "Hate Bad" route, they'd now be easier to find.

Also, since Treacherous seems to be out this month doing his own thing, I'm short on Judges. Z451 has offered to be a temp judge this month, but if someone else wants to participate could do with 1 more judge.

Just to be clear, are we picking pairings that usually go with eachother a la Doom/Richards and Superman/Luthor? Or can it be any hero with any villain?

It can be any hero and villain, it doesn't have to be the classic pairs. Although I will say that one of the judges did want to ban the classic pairs outright, so you might get more points with that judge if you avoid those and mix up the characters invovled.

I will also add that when judging, I'll award stories more marks if they don't involve mind control. I'm much more interested in finding out why a character went bad rather than - "Superman started destroying buildings because Darkseid took control of his mind". Use your imagination! :D

This theme actually fits right into something from my personal "potential matchups" list.

I'm already brainstorming...

Do both sides have to be reversed? If I wanted to make say an evil superman, do I have to make a good lex? Or can it just be evil superman vs hero?
