Cosmic Madness 2013: The Bracket!

Cosmic MadnessA couple weeks ago, we teased what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the Cosmic Comix schedule: COSMIC MADNESS! It’s our annual March Madness-style tournament that determines how YOU feel about your comics! As we said, this year’s contest will decide one thing: THE BEST FEMALE COMIC BOOK CHARACTER OF ALL TIME!


Cosmic Madness will begin on Thursday, March 7. Like the NCAA basketball tournament, this is an elimination tournament with 64 contenders (in our case, female comic book characters). Those contenders are divided up into four regions and within each region they are paired off to play individual “games.” The winner of each game moves on and must play the winner of a different game. And so on and so on, from 64 contenders down to 32 down to 16… until there is only one winner!

The winner of each game is determined by YOUR VOTES and voting takes place here on our website. The only determining factor for your vote is: Who is the better character? It’s a wide open question and you can choose your own criteria: the most powerful, the most important, the coolest, your own personal favorite, whatever!

So, for example, in the first round of the South region you’ll see a match-up between Wonder Woman and Cheetah. All you have to do is vote for whoever you think is best! Then, when all the votes are tallied, the character with the most votes (I’m guessing Cheetah) will face whoever wins between Spider-Girl and Spider-Woman, which you will have likewise decided with your votes. And then you’ll have to vote for that match, too! Starting on March 7, you’re gonna have a lot of voting to do, so make sure your mouse finger is limbered up!

Who’s ultimately the best female comic book character of all time? We’ll know what the majority thinks when there’s only one left!


Over the course of the past few months, the Cosmic Madness Selection Committee has been locked in the Cosmic Comix Conference Room deliberating on who exactly should be in contention for this prestigious title. Wonder Woman… Storm… Harley Quinn (our mascot)… Jean Grey… Sure, those are the easy ones. But what about… Abigail Brand? Or Abbey Chase? Or Jessica Jones? Would they make the cut?? We now know the answer to those questions and the tournament bracket is ready for your perusal!

As with every year, the contenders have been placed into four regions and seeded #1 through #16. We think there are some great match-ups in there — Spider-Girl vs. Spider-Woman! Death vs. Lady Death! Michonne vs. Andrea in a battle for Walking Dead supremacy! Check it out:

The voting for Cosmic Madness will begin on Thursday, March 7, but before then be sure to come by the store and pick up an Official Tournament Bracket OR print out the one here. WHY? Because, just like last year, we’re giving you the chance to win prizes here at Cosmic Comix! Just for predicting the winners! Last year, the grand prize was a $100 gift certificate to Cosmic Comix!

All you have to do is this: fill in the names of the characters YOU think will win each match-up, put your name and phone number at the bottom, and bring it back to us by Wednesday, March 6. Then on Thursday, voting will begin on the website and YOU will determine the winners of each game!

More information over the next couple of weeks, specifically about the contest details. So take a good look at the seedings, have your favorites lined up, and tell all of your friends about it!

* If you do want to print out your own bracket, you may have to tweak your printer settings a little, scaling the image to one piece of paper and printing in landscape mode.

    Win or lose – this is always a lot of fun and well done by the CCX crackerjack staff.

  2. matthetrick says:

    Let the griping begin – There is NO WAY that Hit-Girl is an 8th seed.

  3. Buzz says:

    This is gonna be fun. Hate it that Harley and Huntress are matched up in the first round! Thats a brutal seed for Huntress, I see her in the 8-9 range.

  4. Buzz says:

    WAY more fun than picking College Basketball teams!
    Hate it that Huntress draws Harley in the first round.
    Brutal draw for Bertinelli.
    12 seed for Lady Death? Guys; Have you seen that outfit?
    Can’t wait to get started.

  5. Matthew Sr. says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for including Spider-Girl! I hope she whips Spider-Woman’s butt!!!

  6. frogoat says:

    Mayday all the way!

  7. wil says:

    Where’s my girl Sersi? Thankfully, Lady Sif is in the mix so I don’t have to call a technical foul.

  8. Andy King says:

    Looks like some tough draws there. Not looking too promising for my girl X-23 to make it past Jean Grey though. Gonna have to see how that plays out.

    Rusty – How is it that Rogue ends up in the same bracket as Aunt May, Mary Jane, Gwen Stacy, Katchoo, Betty/Veronica and Pepper Pots?? Not crying conspiracy theory here just making an observation.
