That’s right, the results are in. The Marvel vs. DC Team Tug-of-War battle royale has finally ended.
The official kingdom tally keeper tallied and counted and added and ran away and then came back and tallied some more.
I must admit that when I started handing out extra points I hadn’t counted on factoring them into the final results. But then, as I handed out more and more of them I realized I had to. I swear it was purely coincidental that both teams ended up with exactly 8,000 bonus points:
The Cutter received 1,000 points for the thoroughness of his argument.
Laura Lord received 1,000 points for pointing out that Spongebob is mightier than Aquaman.
Brother Jon received 1,000 points for basing his argument on stability.
Grayson Queen received 1,000 points for showing us all X-Babies.
J. Milburn received 1,000 points for sheer brilliance.
ElectronicBagLady received 1,000 points for admitting that her moral compass came from Uncle Ben and Aunt May.
C.C. received 1,000 points for using definitions to decide who to support.
CK Hope received 1,000 points for reminding us all it isn’t wise to anger The Hulk. He punched one god and repeatedly bashed another into the ground.
Sarah Brekke received 1,000 points for pointing out that goth is part of Gotham.
Little Dude received 1,000 points because he’s ten, and his post was fantastic.
Zoe received 1,000 points for picking sides early and pulling with all her might even when the odds were stacked against her.
NotAPunkRocker received 1,000 points for pointing out that no matter what else Marvel has, they will always have the sorrow of being affiliated with Howard the Duck.
FaithHopeChocolate received 1,000 points for referencing Bones.
AreYouFinishedYet initially received 1,000 points for reminding us all to party responsibly and then received a second 1,000 points for being Freshly Pressed.
Rara received 1,000 points for only using the comics to decide which side of the rope to support.
See? Evenly matched in bonus points. Funny that it worked out that way.
Therefore the real struggle came down to the number of people pulling on each side. The tally keeper freely admits that he may have missed some. He did his best but there were so many answers spread out across so many posts that it is likely he did, in fact, miss some. But, here is what he did come up with:
Team Marvel: 38
|Kim @ Tranquil Dreams|
|The Indecisve Eejit|
Team DC: 24
|El Guapo’s wife|
Therefore, the trophy, the glory, the victory go to TEAM MARVEL, and Team DC are left in the mud.
Big thank you to everyone who played. Including these wonderful posts:
What should the next tug-of-war battle be between? Star Trek and Star Wars? Clint Eastwood and John Wayne? Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett?
