Welcome to the 2015 DC/Marvel Comic Character Tournament!
As the NCAA basketball tournament goes along, so will a series of polls matching various comic book characters against each other. This year, we're mixing it up. We're using just the television versions of DC and Marvel superheroes (I didn't count either Human Targets as "superheroes" for this bit, nor did I count most SHIELD agents, but I did count some of the more "super" SHIELD agents, as well as John Constantine. Isis isn't technically a DC character, so I didn't count her, either). You're voting for which superhero character (as portrayed by that actor) that you like the best.
You might differ with some of the rankings. In fact, let's just take for granted that you will, in fact, differ and save yourself the time of saying, "A #6 seed? Character X should be a #4 seed!" or whatever, and just vote on what the Selection Committee came up with (especially since I'm not going to be changing anything).

Here is the tournament bracket - click on it to get the full bracket and feel free to print it out if you'd like (I doubt it fits on one page though).
Remember, all you're voting on here is who you like better between the two choices. Who did you like better? Adam West's Batman or Heather McComb's Jubilee?
Here are the first two regions up for voting!
