The criteria being who is the better teenage superhero or who could best each other in battle at their teenage height in power?

We haven't really done one of these since I've been around.

It will be a "Who's a better hero?" contest. A "Who would win in a battle?" poll favors the House of El a little too much.

For my money, (Ultimate) Spider-Man is much more complex than Tim. That said, Dick Grayson has them both trumped in this contest.

Brackets coming this weekend hopefully.

Didn't realize there were images.

Been so long since one of these was done. Before my time.

Wasn't I supposed to be the one running this thing?

Let me know what other images you need Mike, I might be able to help.

Tim Drake is my favorite character in all of comics but he's not the best teen character. Invincible has that dynamic nailed to a far greater degree, as does Ultimate Spider-man. Robin is more of a hero masquerading as a teen than a teen being a hero.

I read a fair bit of ultimate spidey and it never came off as "real". It seemed to be more a stereotype than an actual real teenager.

Okay, let's get this back on track!

I need a volunteer to find me good images of all of these characters. Don't post them in here, though. Either send them to me as PMs or via e-mail. Also, make sure they're pictures of them as teenagers; meaning, a modern picture of Cyclops or Spider-Man won't do, because it's not them as teens.

Also, I'm thinking about replacing Araña (who's fallen off the map) with Pixie. Anyone object?

If I'm going to start looking like you, I might as well take up your extreme work ethic in the process.

Doesn't take Heihachi this long to organise a tournament. :P

Mike won't beat you to death with his bare fists, though.

Although if he wears the Tekken 5 nappy its entirely his own affair.
