Here is how I voted –
Cyclops v Havok – The Ultimate Summers Brother is – CYCLOPS!
Iceman v Sunfire – Iceman!
Banshee v Siryn – Father v Daughter – Banshee!
Cannonball v Husk – Brother v Sister – Husk!
Cloak v Dagger – Partner v Partner – Dagger, though it did give me some pause to vote between the two of them
Nightcrawler v Multiple Man – Nightcrawler, no doubt about it!
Boom Boom v Jubilee – Jubliee!
Moonstar v X23 – Moonstar!
Jean Grey v Kid Omega – Jean Grey!
Emma Frost v Rachel Grey – Emma Frost, this one I had to think about for a while but I guess I’ve lost touch with Rachel at some point
Professor X v Legion – Father v Son – Legion!
Hope Summers v Mimic – similar powers – Hope!
Juggernaut v Danger – Juggernaut, I guess, this was the first toss up for me
Namor v Rockslide – Namor!
Colossus v Strong Guy – Strong Guy, all the way!
Forge v Warlock – Warlock!
Wolverine v Warpath – Wolverine!
Bishop v Cable – future folk – Cable!
Deadpool v Fantomex – Weapon X Folk – Deadpool!
Gambit v Domino – Domino!
Changeling v Mystique – similar powers – Mystique!
Shadowcat v Wolfsbane – Shadowcat, all the flippin’ way!
Northstar v Shatterstar – the stars? – Northstar
Longshot v Psylocke – Psylocke!
Magneto v Xorn – get it? – Magneto!
Quicksilver v Dazzler – Dazzler!
Storm v Polaris – Storm!
Scarlet Witch v Magik – magic folk – Magik, all the way! That means Kitty and Illyana are going to face off prior to the finals.
Beast v Doctor Nemesis – science folk – Doctor Nemesis!
Chamber v Rogue – Rogue!
Archangel – Sunspot – Archangel, all the way!
Doop v Lockheed – Lockheed, all the way! Lockheed v Magik v Kitty Pryde, this is going to get intense!
Cyclops v Iceman – Original Five Face-Off – Cyclops!
Banshee v Cannonball – Banshee! Shame Husk didn’t make it through
Cloak v Nightcrawler – Nightcrawler! Who votes Cloak over Dagger?
Jubilee v X23 – Jubilee, I guess.
Jean Grey v Emma Frost – Emma, over Jean, every single time!
Professor X v Hope Summers – Hope, I guess.
Juggernaut v Namor – Namor, there are some lackluster second round choices I’m noticing
Colossus v Forge, Forge for the win!
Wolverine v Cable – in the Ultimate Universe, they are one and the same – Wolverine!
Deadpool v Gambit, Deadpool!
Mystique v Kitty Pryde, Kitty Pryde, all the way!
Northstar v Psylocke, Psylocke!
Magneto v Quicksilver, Father v Son – Magneto!
Storm v Scarlet Witch, how the f did Magik not come out on top!?! Storm!
Beast v Rogue, Rogue!
Archangel v Lockheed, Lockheed! I can’t believe Lockheed beat Doop, I didn’t see that result coming. I hoped for it but I guess Doop isn’t as beloved these days.
Kitty and Lockheed, who I wished were on opposite sides of the bracket. Ideally those two meet up in Round Five. Could Kitty defeat Mystique, I think it may be close but she can do it. Can Lockheed defeat Archangel, oh heck yeah! Kitty v Psylocke, could be close to but Rogue v Lockheed, I’m not going to kid myself.
