ROUND 2 RECAP
This was not a good day to be a #2 Seed, as Harry Potter, The Universal Monsters, and Superman all fell in major upsets! Also, it's a good thing we had an odd number of voters...Nightwing, Tyrion Lannister, and Princess Leia defeated John Wick, John Constantine, and Superman respectively all by a SINGLE vote. Madness!
Disappointed by those results? Well next time cajole a friend, sibling, co-worker or significant other to spend 2 minutes voting!
On the other end of the spectrum, the biggest winners were Captain America over Grand Admiral Thrawn with 77% of the vote, and Robin continues his Cinderella Story with a dominant 74% win over Rodimus Prime, who absolutely collapsed from his improbable #1 Seed.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer has also been on a march from her #10 Seed in the Young Punks division, where we've lost the #1 AND #2 Seeds. Misunderstood Outsiders, true to form, features a wild array of drastically different characters in the Sweet Sixteen. That division's up for grabs. Leia is the only upset from Badass Leaders, but is she now poised to take this thing all the way to the Final Four?! And now that Nightwing has squeaked by John Wick, does comics' original sidekick have the juice to topple #1 Dashing Rogue Indiana Jones?
Get ready for a fun finish!
