56

Thank You!

Thanks for tuning in, and playing in the first ever Time Warp March Madness Bracket! This is the middle installment in our series of articles that are designed to give you some insight into how your bracket will be scored. Click here for part I and here for part II. We hope as always that you had as much fun filling out your brackets as we did determining the winners. Remember, this is all for fun, if you see match up you disagree with, feel free to let us know! The bracket is set and the rulings are complete, but we would love to hear the case you can make for your favorite characters! Without Further adieu, our Final Four!

The Supers

  • Thor v Dr. Strange
    • Dr. Strange is one of the few people to know that under the mystical enchantments of Thor is the mortal Jane Foster, but that might actually not work in his favor. Though usually very solemn, Dr. Strange has a soft spot for Thor, and will likely wait just a moment too long before throwing up his mystical defenses. That moment is all it takes for Thor, or rather Mjolnir to take advantage. Like Thor’s first round match-up Black Bolt, Dr. Strange has tremendous damage output, but doesn’t stand up well to repeated blows from the mystical Uru Hammer. Striking like lightning will allow Thor to bring home the win.

The Fighters

  • Black Panther v Captain America
    • Sam Wilson has come a long way since his days as the Falcon, they don’t let just anyone become Captain America. Not only have his skills as an unarmed combatant improved, his gear has come a long way since his first flight harness. A harness which was made by none other than the Black Panther. Panther should have no difficulty taking down a flight harness based on his own design, and while Sam Wilson has more experience with the shield, Panther is far more accustomed to the Vibranium in it. If Sam throws the shield while airborne, there’s no way he’s getting it back. There’s not much Cap can do to T’Challa while airborne. He could probably circle for hours, and call it a stalemate, but he has too much respect for the King of Wakanda, and we want to see a good fight, so he’ll eventually land. When he does, Panther will quickly make him regret his decision. Both combatants are full of respect for one another, not only as fighters, but for their respective roles in their world. It’s their roles in the world that will help decide the shift in the battle. Sam Wilson was chosen by Steve Rogers to stand up for America, a noble aspiration to be sure, but Panther has been the King of Wakanda for far longer. Chosen by the Panther God and proven in combat, T’Challa has been fighting for his people since he was a teen, and time and time again has risen to the challenge. After a long pugilistic showdown, only the King will remain standing.
