  1. Put your image here for your character submission. Images 300 pixels X 300 pixels square. You can use an online image cropper tool to crop your image to 300 x 300 before uploading.
  2. Those are cool, thanks. At the power level the current characters in draft are at - cosmic level - I don't see terrain as a factor. Whatever the terrain is will be destroyed, possibly along with the planet. But yeah, for more low powered matches I could see adding some of those.
  3. Hi all The next round - round 4 - will start tomorrow. I will be taking a day to work in some new challenges in the detective slot. Thanks!
  4. Ryoko is one of if not the most powerful beings in the Tenchi universe. She possesses the power of three gems which are divine in nature, giving her access to various supernatural abilities. I would have to categorize it as magic power. And, that is Supes achillies heel, pretty much regardless of version. Going with Ryoko.
  5. Wow. That was a solid and thorough analysis. Thanks! That said, it kind of led me to what I already suspected - slow and lumbering + claws could be at a disadvantage against ranged blasters.
  6. Well good, I'm glad to hear you apologized, because that was a pretty BS. The vote buttons do not represent an opportunity for you to vote about whatever is in the news that day.
  7. So you are using the vote button on this site to lodge a protest vote against some celebrity... which has nothing to do with this site or this competition... thereby affecting one of the players in the draft. I'm about a hair from banning you, man. That's not a valid argument for who should win this match.
  8. The problem with The Riddler as a character is that his character concept cannot live up to his flawed execution by the people who write him in comics and shows. The people who write him are not (by and large) supra-geniuses and clever as a fox, themselves. And so, the riddles they write for the Riddler and capers they come up with are not challenging for people over the age of 10. They can't execute the character concept as intended. They don't have the wit. My 2 cents.
  9. I believe we can look at Apocalypse vs. Quicksilver. I hate to reference the not-so-great X-Men film where this battle happened, but I will. Did not work out for Quicksilver. I'd like to hear if it happened in Comics. Flash is more powerful that Quicksilver, IMO. What gets me about the Flash is his often clownish rogues gallery. I don't think any of them would offer Apocalypse much of a challenge. However they do offer Flash a challenge.
  10. I'm liking the Kobolds here. They are Cannon Fodder, sure, but they are challenging for low level parties and they do bring mages and clerics along with the fighters.
  11. I think I'm liking Onslaught here due to the massive psychic abilities, reality warping, astral projection and possession. Parallax has some similar kit, but I think Onslaught has more of it. I think this is a question of who possesses who. I don't see this coming down to physical blows.
  12. The minion's durability is a moot point, and they should not win this or any match in this space IMO. The minions exist to serve the Big Boss. And when they don't have a Big Boss to serve, they are despondent and purposeless. They will determine the one individual on the other team (in this case the Crazy 88) who they can pledge their allegiance to, call them the Big Boss, pledge to serve him or her and forfeit the match as they have no further interest in it. Their only motivation for competing at all would be to identify a Big Boss to become minions of.
  13. I've always liked the Riddler as a character. And this particular challenges is very within his MO. I just wish there was a more edgy version of the Riddler with a broader definition of what the riddle is. I will reference Silence of the Lambs. A giant death-head moth shoved down victims throats is the riddle. Or, perhaps Twin Peaks where only an autopsy could discover the riddle. A Elseworlds or Vertigo version of this character, I guess. Anyways, the Riddler's riddles are challenging to Batman, and Constantine aint no Batman. So I lean Riddler.
  14. Thanks for the suggestions. It's a tough one because, like the above, it's going to be way outside the MO of many Master Criminals. Walking the fine line between generic and specific to make something which applies to most is challenging.
  15. I have to go with Ainz. I'll freely admin that I am not familiar with Naomi and can only go by what Google tells me. But I have watched the complete Overlord series twice and what I have seen with Ainz tells me that he could defeat what Google tells me about Naomi. And if you haven't watched Overlord, well, here you go: Season 1.
  16. This. You need inside sources within the Justice system. This scenario is drawn from the historical Al Capone trial and how Elliot Ness handled it. It is a real and relevant challenge, IMHO, that probably and unfortunately happens in a less famous way more often than we would like to know. Please do suggest more challenges to add into this slot. I would very much like some suggestions. THanks!
  17. No, this is a slot for Generic, Disposable cannon-fodder. no named character. If one was allowed in, then that is unfortunate and we need to determine if they can be viewed in a generic way. Can they? Or no.
  18. Why are we making the assumption that comic-book detectives are better than movie or TV detectives? Would you also say that any comic-book detective is better than any film or TV version of Sherlock Holmes simply because they are in comic-books? This seems an unreasonable position to take where "comic-book characters win!" and no further analysis is required. Now, granted, Hannibal comes from reality-based films but also the original novels the films are based on. He is the character that Detectives go to when they can't figure it out, because he is smarter than the Detectives
  19. There are some things we can see about this based on the scenario 1. An eclectic guest list - so we have multiple interesting suspects. 2. A dead aristocrat - probably had multiple possible folks with something to gain with his murder. This presents the master criminal the best possible scenario to frame someone else or otherwise get away scott free. Yes, I know... but Bat God! Well, you know, the Master Criminal here is no slouch and this scenario actually favors the criminal.
  20. Rimuru Tempest at Demon Lord level with ultimate gluttony might digest the Green Lantern powers and take them for his own. This will of course be in addition to the vast number of abilities he has already absorbed. But even without that move, he brings a massive amount of versatility and power to this challenge that will net him the win. If you haven't seen it, go watch "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime". Fun show.
  21. Stockholm Syndrome is, essentially, self-induced brainwashing whereby the hostage develops feelings for their captor. The captor may not even be actively helping it along. Given that Kite Man is, in cannon, a laid-back charmer it could be a case where untangling the relationship could be difficult.
  22. Somebody throw me some additional Detective / Master Criminal challenge ideas to add into the season. Thanks!
  23. Now explain her defeat of Galactus. According to Marvel themselves everything she has done in Earth-616 is cannon. Please see the Official Marvel Wiki. Also note they give Squirrel Girl Max stats in every category from strength to intelligence. I have to go with what Marvel Comics says in their official pages about their own character. As a neutral party just trying to make sense of the character, I subscribe to the theory that she's either a beyond-Omega level reality-warping mutant like Franklin Richards or simply favored by an ultra-powerful cosmic being in the Mul
  24. There have been multiple discussions out there about what Squirrel Girl's powers actually mean. The one thing I think we must agree on is that it is a thing. Now it's very clear that even Vs Battle Wiki wants to ignore that she is, essentially, the winning-est character in Marvel Comics and warns against scaling her. All that means to me is that they recognize she can't be pigeon-holed and are taking their ball and going home. I agree with the Redditor who does have a logical explanation, that being it is a power granted by some larger force in the Multi-Verse to her.
