Cosmic Madness 2012 is Coming!
UPDATE: We’ve taken your comments into consideration and updated the field with 10 new contenders! We”ll be finalizing the list over the weekend, so if you haven’t made your voice heard… now is the time! Check out the additions at the bottom. And if this is your first time seeing this, keep reading and get in on it!
We’re getting down to the end of college basketball season in America. And that must mean one of our most popular events here at the store makes its triumphant return. Yes, it’s coming… COSMIC MADNESS 2012!
Not unlike the NCAA Basketball Tournament, there are 64 contenders in Cosmic Madness. In our first year, through your votes on the website, we determined that Batman was the greatest superhero ever. Yes EVER. Last year, we determined that the Justice League of America was the greatest superhero team ever.
With last year’s tourney, we also gave you the opportunity to fill out your own bracket with who you thought the winners would be. In the end, victory went to Cosmic Comix Conversation panelist Andy K! And we’ll definitely be doing that again this year.
But first things first! We’ve done best superhero, we’ve done best superhero team… What could we possibly be wondering this year? Well, in the year 2012 we want to know the following: Who is the greatest villain ever??
Once again, the contenders will have to face off against each other over a series of “games” with the winner of each game being determined by your votes on the website! As for the players themselves? We’ve got a pretty good list going, with many of the biggest bads to ever hit the four-color medium lining up to face off against each other. Joker, Magneto, Galactus, Kingpin. Sure, those are all gimmes, and we’ve got 44 of them. And now we’re giving you the chance to help pick the remaining 20! Check out who we’ve got so far (in alphabetical order):
* Yes, we did ultimately decide to include Gepetto, Cobra Commander and Megatron, even though they didn’t originate in comics. The simple fact is, each character has had a significant impact on their respective series and on comics as a whole.
But that’s still only 54.. and we need 64! Who’s missing? Post your thoughts in the comments below! And get ready for COSMIC MADNESS 2012!!
