I sent LGDB a PM 2-3 weeks ago asking whether we could or not, but he apparently hasn't visited the board since then. In his absence, I think the best way to go is for you, Neph and I (as the remaining participants) to decide this amongst ourselves. So if you want to change a few things, I'm happy to go with that.

All good. Nephilim hasn't responded yet, so let's allow until Sunday Night 21:00 EST for all three of us to finalise our set-ups. I'll then look to post the semi-final matches the following evening, or shortly after that, depending on any circumstances that come up between now and then. The match-ups are already set, since there are only two teams left in each bracket. I just need to find someone neutral to determine the battlefields. I'll try sending Ragnarok a PM, or maybe Bootch if Rags isn't around.
If you cannot manage to contact Rags or Bootch, I volunteer for that job SD.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
