March Madness 2014: Semi-Finals

Semi-finals

The competition has been fierce these past few weeks, but our round 3 winners made their mark from the beginning. Loki was up to his usual tricks – Thor never saw it coming. No doubt Captain America was distracted by Iron Man’s endless charm, as the first Avenger was easily overcome. Though Harley Quinn had the initial lead, the hero triumphed over the villain and Batman won the round. And Catwoman lost the girl power fight to Wonder Woman, leaving us with our final four!

March Madness 2014: Round 1, Part 2

round 1 part 2

Round 1, Part 1 is officially over!

As expected, Loki and Batman absolutely dominated their respective polls. Kitty Pryde wasn’t much competition for Hawkeye, and Thor crushed Scarlet Witch in our ‘League of Exasperated Siblings’ poll. Harley Quinn and Joker sailed easily to their victories (plot twist: now they’ll have to face off against each other in round 2). Meanwhile, Spideypool was forever destroyed when Deadpool came out on top. The most interesting result, however, was the TIE between Nightwing and Raven. However, after a 24 hour death match, Raven emerged victorious. You go, girl.

Will Wolverine get HULK smashed? Will Wonder Woman lasso the Flash? Did Iron Man wear his anti-magnetism suit in order to defeat Magneto? Which eco-friendly ginger is your favorite? Your votes will decide the answer to these questions and more! Continue Reading →

Guest Post: 10 Reasons to Watch The Musketeers

tenreasons

Hint: four of them are pictured

By Kristina Manente

The BBC have a way of capturing hearts unlike any other channel. They’ll give you a heartache with Doctor Who and then throw your heart off a building with Sherlock, only to lull you into a false sense of silly security with Atlantis and, back in the day, Merlin. But with ALL of these shows off air (or gone for good), our hearts had to have something to latch onto… that show, my delightfully geeky friends, is The Musketeers. Continue Reading →

March Madness 2014: Marvel vs. DC

Master Post

March is here, we’ve just lost an hour of sleep, and basketball junkies everywhere are printing out their brackets and waiting for the NCAA craziness to begin. That can only mean one thing: it’s time to tear your little fan hearts apart again. Last year we pitted your favorite canon pairings against your favorite not-so-canon pairings in the ultimate Shipping Wars. This year, we are going to be equally diabolical. We present to you…. March Madness: Marvel vs. DC.

First, your favorite Marvel and DC characters will face off against their own. Once we’ve crowned the top Marvel and top DC hero (or villain), they will then battle it out for the March Madness crown.

As per tradition, the characters we ranked into seeds. Seed one faces off against seed sixteen, seed two and seed fifteen, and then we lumped the rest in to maximize the destruction of your feelings  totally went about creating the matches in a very scientific way. Before you grab your brackets and place your bets with your friends, we’ve written blurbs about each character so that you can make the most informed decision possible. Or flip a coin – your choice.
