    Hi All. It has been maybe 7 months since re-opening the site. Thanks for hanging out and participating! Here's some of the things that I'm looking at for the site in the new year. Monthly Flash Fiction Tournaments - monthly tournament will resume with a new Rating system. The 5 star rating system that the forum has is cool but too limited. There is just not enough flexibility in the Forum 5-Star System to give more fine grained scores (like, say, a 4.5 or 4.6). So the Tournaments will return when I build a new rating mechanism for our wonderful Match Judges to use. Fantasy Teams - the fantasy teams has been fun, I think. It is an evolving system, and is getting updates and changes based on feedback of it. We'll keep on playing and improving it as we go! CBUB Database - There are several Wikis out there which have data about the characters that are in the CBUB Database. I'm hoping to connect to those Wikis and use their data to make the entries in the CBUB database easier to use in battles. The VS Battles Wiki is one that could be really useful. Other Stuff - I'll keep fixing things or adding features when you bring them to my attention, of course. Just let me know. You can, of course, use the site features like the Blog section to post things that interest you. I use mine for the occasional Anime review. I would like the site to be the best it can be at what it is! All that said... the CBUB has returned to a very different world than the one it left. As far as getting new members goes, this is probably about as good as it gets. I point this out because some of you have asked or mentioned it. I've tried running ads and so forth - it's money down the drain to no effect. This is a very niche kind of website and this is not the halcyon days of the 1990's when comics were king and the internet was young. Anyways, this site is here because you asked for it to be here - and as long as you are entertained by it, that's really all that matters to me, personally. I'll just keep doing what I do and trying to make it better. Thanks!

    The site is open. Registration is open. The core features seem to work regarding Matches (start and stop) and adding Characters. The Forum has a lot of features. It's pretty fun. Changes: Rated matches now occur via the Stars rating 'Rate This Topic'. Any forum member can rate a Rated Match ... and are encouraged to do so! Members titled as CBUB Match Judge get their ratings counted X3. Points by rank There's still 5 ranks, with 5 being lowest and 1 highest. There used to be an arcane system whereby certain ranks could only be achieved after a certain number of matches had been created. That's all been removed. It's just a flat system based on your current weighted average regardless of number of matches. Added more points to rank 5 so newbies can make more matches. now 4, up from 2. So anyways, it works. It's probably not a great website to try and use on a Mobile phone. It's only been open a couple days. Could be awhile before there's more people here. I'll look into repairing the Fantasy Draft system. Maybe we can get one going in a couple weeks. Thanks!

    Thanks to Fox for keeping this going, the fantasy draft has become one of my favorite aspects of the site. Thanks to CT for a fun final round! I think this was the best of the fantasy seasons, not just because I won, but the scenarios and slots were more fun. I'd say my team was nicely balanced with The Dagda, Orks and Weird Al all doing well. Looking forward to next season!

    Some really tight competition this month. You nerd team captains are really getting the hang of this. You've all got an eye for talent. Join us again on Friday Nov. 27 when the draft for Season 6 opens.

    It is absolutely fair to call out when somebody is trying to leverage powers a character has which are beyond the intended scope of the slot. For example, Jinny Hex apparently has a green lantern ring laying around. Is it fair to debate a character using a green lantern ring in the Wild West slot? Not at all. So we ignore it.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in September. I have seen a lot of great and memorable matches over the last few months. Who could forget Bergy_Berg's three-match story or SSJRuss' 'Beetlejuice vs. Batman'? September was no different and... dare I say... I think the bar has even been raised. I will have to personally re-evaluate what I consider a '5-star' match in the coming months. They are just all that good. Thanks for all the great reads!

    First I want to thank God and Meryl Streep. I'd like to thank DC Comics for making Batman a stupidly OP character. I'd like to thank the system for giving my characters generally favorable matchups and scenarios. And I'd like to thank my opponents, who drafted such shitty strong teams to contend with.

    OOC: @SSJRuss you're up first against me. IC: Where did Erine go? Looking around it's as she has vanished, disappearing suddenly from sight. Suddenly, out from behind a crate pops up masked woman! She resembles Erine in body size, but her face is concealed by a empty sandbag with crude holes cut out for the eyes and mouth! Who could this be?! The masked fighter turned and pointed at none other than the tranquil turtle himself, Farley. "Hey turtle man! You're going nowhere. I got you for three minutes. Three minutes of playtime!" Not Erine shouted out, hopping into the makeshift ring.

    One day, several weeks ago, at the Church of Healing Unity soup kitchen Komi was doing her usual job of helping to feed the needy who came in, and some of the acolytes too, as they often ate there as well, to socialize and evangelize the beggars who came in. It came to pass that a particular winged tiefling was the last in line for the meal. He smiled a lot and always tried to talk to Komi but she was too shy so far to respond. This time - panic! He was the last in line, so there was no one else to focus on! When he asked if she would sit with him and eat, there was no way she could refuse! Numbly, she nodded and grabbed the lunch she'd packed for herself - that she intended to eat out on the balcony, alone, and followed him to whatever table he chose to go to. Komi had yet to say a word. She had never been among the people who scorned him, at least among their peer group. Though it was mostly an attitude carried over from the more conservative members of the faith, nonetheless it had been something picked up by everyone else. As though a tiefling was something to be hated, despised and even feared. Nothing open of course, there were far too many eyes for it. It was little things. Teachers would ignore him when he had questions or mock him if he didn't know the material. He'd practice alone or with those who didn't feel that way, scarce as they were. Food would sometimes be burned or over salted when given...Little things. But not from her. His food was never harmed when he came in line after finishing his work here, though she had yet to speak back. They were in the same age group he knew that much, though growing up she had always been quiet too.She never laughed at him anyway. That put her in the clear minority. Now finally, here they were...Eating together before he finally spoke. "I'm going to leave in a week." Komi stared at him for a long moment before saying, softly, "You shouldn't quit. I think you are a very sweet person." She was blushing furiously and looking down at the remains of her lunch. She had a very artfully crafted charcuterie of meats, cheeses and delicate bread slices that she'd meticulously assemble into tiny sandwiches one at a time. There was only enough left for a couple more of these at this point. "You shouldn't let bullies run you off." She added, staring firmly at a particular piece of bread that was vaguely heart-shaped. He blinked and then smiled warmly at her. "That's sweet of you to say. But that's not why I'm leaving...Well, not entirely." His fingers stroked the handle of his sword in a contemplative gesture as he spoke on. "I'm taking my Quest for Truth early. The Abbot thinks I'm ready and so do I. I figured I'd start off in Eastrun City." He took a few bites of his food, swallowed and went on. "They're having a shortage of adventurers and I figured I could hone my skills and start off there with Jessamine." There was so much to unpack there. She had been told she was ready for her Quest for some time now, but she was too meek to go on her own. The embarrassment continued when he mentioned Jessamine. "Jessamine is your... girlfriend then?" She kept her eyes off of him, busying herself with making her next mini sandwich. He snorted with laughter. "No. She's my partner." He held up his sword as he added dryly. "After Master Jinn took me to....Er, celebrate my eighteenth birthday I found her in a corner calling to me. She's a spirit who lives in my sword and loves to flirt with me for some reason. I expect its mostly just a reaction." There were at least four blinks before Komi spoke, and the bonnet on her head seemed to ride higher than usual. If Corvo was observant enough, he'd make out the outlines of the Neko ears that manifested when she was exceptionally startled or surprised. She knew she had to say something so she offered up a random fact about herself. "I'm nineteen, myself." He smiled. "Me too. I've had her for a year now and some months." He placed the sword back and leaned forward as he added. "I know it's normal to wait. But I feel ready. And I didn't want to leave without saying goodbye to possibly one of my few friends here." If it were possible, her eyes widened further. "I'm.... I'm your friend?" She looked at him for a moment before she looked down again and devoured her second-to-last sandwich so she'd have an excuse not to say anything more. Only one excuse left. She thought to herself. He blinked and then looked briefly unsettled as he asked. "I'm sorry if I made a mistake. It's just...Well, never mind then." Her mouth opened. No words came out. Quick! Do something! Her inner voice told her. So she grabbed his hand, almost violently. Words would not come, so she just nodded furiously, which caused her bonnet to slip back, revealing the extra set of ears that showed up now and then, followed by a squeak as she used her free hand to attempt to cover them up, to little avail. Oh. That was forward. He could feel his sword almost burning, though curiosity compelled him to look closer. His free hand reached out, gently tugging off her bonnet as he blinked. "...Are you like me?" There was a brief note or wonder in his tone before he chuckled and said warmly. "I like it. It's cute." Komi shrugged and shook her head. "...N-no. I don't think so anyway. Both my parents are human, but now and then... this happens. Maybe I have some tabaxi or... more likely, kitsune... in my lineage somewhere. I..." She paused and shrugged again. "...I can't control when it happens, and they go away after awhile. It's why I always wear a bonnet." Exceedingly self-conscious now, she realized she was holding his hand and jerked it back, as if she'd burned herself. "I... I think I'd like to be considered your friend, Corvo." He smiled, a little shy and quite happy. That was a turn of phrase he didn't hear often and it was nice to hear. He just wished it had been done sooner. He would have known her better as he said suddenly. "So when are you going on your quest?" She squeaked again. "...I don't know. I suppose soon, but I should give them time to find a replacement for me." She tapped her forefingers together. "What if I'm not ready? Do you think I'm ready? I could maybe... Find you in Eastrun?" He nodded. "Yes. I'll be there. If not working." Komi looked around nervously - as if she did much any other way, then leaned forward lightning-fast and kissed Corvo on the cheek. "For luck." She stood up. "I should go help them with the dishes." A quick bow and she was gone, fluttering back to the kitchen. One thing he did notice though, that when she retreated, the cat ears had disappeared again.

    Hello CBUB Fight Creators You may recall that CBUB Tournaments were a thing back in the day. And, you may even recall that these contests of CBUB match making skill had a prize for the winner. Next month we look forward to restoring this illustrious tradition with the CBUB June Challenge. Each Tourney contestant will need to produce at least 3 Rated matches of their choosing in June. The person with the highest FPA at months end will win. Person with top FPA will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. That's the nutshell version. I'll post a separate page with the contest rules before June. Could be fun.

    Sorry for not commenting on this sooner! I think this was an excellent write-up and the framing of Khazan was great! The idea of characters like Jiren, Joker, and Saitama just casually standing around as Yang and Fixit throw hands is hilarious. Almost feels like it'd be the backdrop for a 2D-fighting game with Jiren paying the battle no mind, Saitama just wanting to get the paperwork done so he can catch up the latest sale in the Khazan Market, and Joker and Bell just wanting to make it out of here in one piece. I can't really say I speak as an authority on Joe but after doing some research on him, I feel like I'm leaning more towards him! Yang's punches are definitely gonna be felt given the feats we've seen her pull off like punching away a Ursa just as big-if not bigger than Joe or smashing a mecha built for war with nothing but her bare fists. Joe's best bet would be to try and place Yang into something of a submission hold and choke her out before letting this drag out for too long. Because if he gets stronger and stronger and gives Yang one good punch, he's not gonna like it when she returns that same level of PUNCH right back at him. Awesome write up, my friend. : )

    It's coming along. Just trying to get the new character submissions working again. With any good fortune, might be able to open up the CBUB control panel and site registrations tomorrow. Definitely want to do a CBUB Fantasy Draft again. Good times. I'll look at the FPL next. It's very complicated and could be a lot longer before that is available again.

    Steve Fox returns to the THUNDERDOME... Dome... Dome... Dome! Will he be second time lucky? I guess we'll find out. I personally like Rocky Balboa here, though. No reason besides an image in my head of Balboa flying through the air while wielding a chainsaw and screaming "Adriaaaaaane!"

    I haven't really commented on my opinion of the fight, but I also think Beyond should win. He's probably a little less fast and has slightly less experience, but he does have enough training and he's quick enough that she's not just going to be able to slice him up. His vast arsenal is also going to do wonders for him here. This electric attack is capable of chipping apart a robot said to be made of Promethium. He has a wide variety of sonic, electric, and gas-based weaponry that he can throw at her, and the environment means he would never really be in trouble. He can always just fly away and at his speeds there's no way in hell she'll ever catch him. As far as I can tell, she has no real recourse if he just stays out of range. Going by the logic of "Wolverine can lose via concussion, etc.," Beyond is definitely strong enough and has a wide enough arsenal to concuss her and get a win. If it were in close quarters I would agree that he's in trouble, but this setting makes it trivial for him to stay safe indefinitely and pelt her with weapons until something sticks

    Fantastic job with this set-up. I was totally entertained. Great writing. Man, we need a Netflix series where these tournament entries get turned into episodes. I Would normally have to go with the Michelin Man on this one. He's made of rubber so Christine really can't hurt him. And, I have to assume he's got a power feat of pulling tires off cars. But, it being Halloween, the only outcome can be that Christine and Bidendum find true love after a quick scuffle, dispose of the two meddlesome humans, and keep the Monkey's Paw for themselves. And that leads to the world of...

    Hello, everyone! Just happen to find out that this site is alive again. For those who may not remember me, I’m the guy who added a bunch of big breast anime girls to the database. I might start making characters and matches again, as well as getting back into reviewing characters. But for now, I just going to be reading and voting matches. Hope everyone been doing well since 2013.

    Cliff rolls his eyes at the statement. "Incredible how someone who wandered off and nearly died alone, after accomplishing nothing, has the gall to say someone else is feeble minded. Tell me, did you take lessons in being an insufferable prick, or does it come naturally? Be a shame if your only natural talents are alienating others and passing out in the street."

    I agree with everyone above, the story is short, but you're right that they don't need much rain to fight other than "Hulk Smash", "All-might don't like that". The only thing I don't really get is why would they teleport Hulk to s random dimension? The only reason Black Widow hunts him down in the first movie is that they need him for the Avengers initiative right? Any who, movie Hulk loses to All Might, especially since at the beginning of the story he hasn't passed the quirk on to Deku. Strength wise, Hulk is strong enough to cause minor earth quakes when he's angry. Speed wise, he can outrun a Humvee, they have a maximum speed of 70 mph according to Google. Disability wise, he takes a lot of good hits from the Hulkbuster suit, who has comparable strength to Hulk before he gets angry. Now moving on to All Might. Strength wise, the first major feat he shows is punching his enemy so hard he affects the atmosphere causing it to rain The earthquake he causes are a bit bigger too Speed wise, this is towards the end of his superhero run when he's significantly weaker than at the start. He travels 5 kilometers in 30 seconds, which doing the math equals traveling at 373 mph (rounded up) So yes, All Might spanks Hulk like an angry stepparent.

    "I thought you said this would be difficult, L." Her voice emanated softly out of the comms, carrying both a distinguishable Brazilian accent and a hint of mockery as she stalked quietly through the halls. "It is." A brusque almost drill sergeant sounding voice bluntly stated, illustrating well his annoyance for her tone. "If you don't want to end up with a bullet in your skull and a mission failure on your record, knock it off. The security on this place is no joke, and remember, I'm the one who's gonna have to come and get your sorry ass out of there if you get cocky. So don't." Deadshot warned. "Is that concern I hear in your voice?" "Cute. No, the only concerns I got are the time and bullets I'd have to waste charging in there after you while you're laid out on the floor trying to recover." "So you would--" "Both of you, can it. Keep your minds focused fully on the damn job." A third voice cut in, interrupting their back and forth before it could continue any further. He was even more no-nonsense than Floyd had been. Deadshot grunted in agreement, but Scandal fell silent for a short time. A few seconds passed before she chimed back in. "Have no fear. You have no idea what passes for training in my father's eyes. I've infiltrated far more dangerous places than..." Her sentence came to an abrupt end as she caught sight of blood slowly spreading out from beyond a corner just ahead. "S?" She didn't answer immediately, taking cautious and silent steps up to said corner and poking just enough of her head around it to shoot a glimpse down that hallway. There were at least four bodies littering the hall, with the walls stained with blood all over the place. "What do you see?" "Corpses. The walls in certain spots look like Jackson Pollock paintings, if he only used one color. Someone else must be here for the data!" She hurriedly reported, voice as loud as she could make it without giving away her position. "..." "..." That made things more complicated for sure. Another person, operating on their intel? There shouldn't have been any competition on this job. "You have eyes on who's responsible?" "No. I'm going in." There was silence on the other two's end as they let that fully sink in...and no sooner than it had were they moving to gear up. Scandal may have ended up needing all the back up they could muster, with this unknown person or group of people crashing their party. A fourth person spoke up on their comms in the heavy silence, concern obvious in his voice. "Stay safe, little savage." She cracked a grin, hearing that. It was...still weirdly nice having someone that cared that overtly. Scandal stepped up to another corner, edged her head just around it and caught a glimpse of the target area of the complex. Yet before she could proceed, a noise just above her drew her attention...and a loud metallic clang echoed throughout the area as part of the vent came crashing down into the floor, followed shortly by someone dropping down from above. The kick came so fast she didn't have time to react, it knocked her back a few feet before the soles of her boots grinded her to a halt. When her gaze focused on whoever the hell that was, she observed a slender young woman crouched in a landing stance and delivering a scrutinizing glare right back at her. "...You." There was no noticeable response to that, the woman only answering with a stare. It was only a few seconds later, when Scandal was about to yell out some indignant statement, that she bothered to speak at all. "If you're here for the data, you're too late. It belongs to us. That means leave. Now." "No. Someone's paying top dollar for it, and..." Scandal brandished the lamentation blades far more threateningly. "...We always deliver." "So be it. I gave you a chance." *snikt* Two sets of claws shot out of her hands at once, weapons to match the other's. No more needed to be said between them. The daughter of Vandal Savage charged the clone of Wolverine, both their battle yells mixing together into a ferocious howl that would have made anybody quiver in fear at least a little bit, no matter how they might have denied it. ----------------------------------------------- So here we have it folks! The daughter of Vandal Savage, the immortal 50,000 year old who knows all there is to know about combat and warfare and passed much of it(as well as a degree of his immortal nature) onto his daughter in the form of brutal training sessions designed to hone her into a worthy successor to his legacy, vs the lethal weapon X-23(Laura to her friends) who was bred and trained from birth specifically to be one of the most efficient assassins that ever walked the Earth. That childhood, plus subsequent learning from the likes of her progenitor, Gambit, Daken, among others, makes her a fearsome combatant indeed. Who shall come out on top?

    I'm working on setting up a dark theme. You can switch to it down at the bottom of the page I think... there is a Theme Selector widget. Anyways, take a look at that, see what you think. In your default set-up probably don't color the default text. Like this one has issues in a Dark theme. Great fight! Text is black on black when using dark theme though.
