Okay then Darwin…he’s battled a Hell Lord of far greater strength in Hela and his ability to adapt can handle magic too…

Somehow we need to defeat The Brood Queen.

Image

Sadly, Colossus is off the board. His impenetrable skin would have made him an ideal candidate to face the hive mother and ward off her nasty stinger. Luckily, characters with a healing factor can also manage to resist the transformative effects of a Brood Queen's egg. And there's one left who would fit the bill rather well: Primal

Image

Primal not only has a great healing factor, he's literally built to win any fight based on instinct. He's almost like Darwin in that he adapts to any situation to win a fight.

Exodus makes his entrance.
Powers: harness the psychic energy from others and from his own convictions to sustain his mental powers, including telepathy, psychokinesis, force fields, teleportation, pyroplasmic blasts, psionic force beams, and flight

Image

With all of those powers I need a truly remarkable psychic to stand a chance. Professor X can do the job.

My villain is Holocaust, son of Apocalypse.

We'll go with another AoA transplant to take him down: Nate Grey.

Goblyn Queen
Powers: telepathy, psychokinesis, teleportation, and transmutation powers that draw forth the physical and mental evils of others

Who could take in such a daunting foe? None other then the former lord of hell itself. Strong guy.


Also sorry for the delay everyone.

For Round 9 I got: Cassandra Nova
Powers: parasitic entity born out of Xavier's cells who manifests telepathy, psychokinesis, hyper-regenerative powers, intangibility, psi-plasmic armor, heat bursts, and the ability to analyze genetic codes then absorb them into "her" body

To take out a being of the mind, I unleash the full fury of Mother Nature. STORM is up on deck.

Okay, we got Exodus, Apocalypse, Goblyn Queen, and Cassandra Nova in Round 9... if the last two are Magneto and Sinister then Round 10 is gonna be some weird curveball because I can't think of any more (or at least, not a round worth) of villains higher up.

There's probably Onslaught, Bastion, Dark Phoenix, Arcade, Nimrod, Nemesis, Shadow King. Any other ideas?

I was thinking maybe Onslaught and Dark Phoenix wouldn't show up since Prof X and Jean are in the hero list. Nemesis is Holocaust and was in Round 9. I don't think Arcade deserves to be above some of the round 9 guys. You're right though that Bastion, Nimrod, and the Shadow King deserve to be there, so I guess I'm just not thinking of enough folks. Legion hasn't shown up either. Maybe more recent ones like Matthew Malloy or Genesis/Annihilation?

I meant the Native American shaman guy Nemesis. You could probably include the Dark Phoenix as the "Phoenix Force" rather than Jean. The thing about Arcade is yeh, he's not very impressive as a physical entity, but he includes all of his deadly traps and robots, and such as part of his package.

EDIT: Sorry, not Nemesis, The Adversary. That's who I was referring to.

Oh there's also the Living Monolith! How could we forget about him? And you could also probably say Gladiator is a "villain" at least enough to justify his inclusion in the game.

I choose Forge who will invent a device to turn Hodge into a techo-organic paperweight. Brick that processor Forge!
That was definitely a good use of Forge, but now I'm scared when we get Bastion.
We'll send Wiz Kidto turn Bastion into a PS5. Sell him on eBay to fund S.W.O.R.D. for a year.
I’m not joking. This is my pick. Thank you Bardic for the inspiration 😂

Also, I’d like very much (if our gracious host allows) for the points for this round of voting for my pick to go to Bardic, or at least be split? It only seems fair 🤷‍♂️

I see three characters left that could help me defeat my last villain. If all of them get chosen, I'm in a Jubilee vs Beyonder situation I think.

As a reminder, after the last round you will need to fill out one more rankings list before we announce the final results.
So don't like make your final pick and then go on an expedition into the Amazon or something.

Hm.

Okay.

So we’re going with one of my least favourite characters, Hope Summers. Either she can copy his powers and beat him at his own game, or she dies. Win win
