Natasha may have won the match, but Delphyne got a lot of votes that speak volumes about how’s she’s become so popular in very little time. Thanks for voting!

Second Round: Black Widow versus Delphyne

In one corner we have the legendary Russian super spy, Black Widow! Natasha first arrived on the US as a spy working for an agency of Russia, but she would later side with the Avengers and assisted them on a number of times. You can currently catch her on her own series (make sure to read Liu’s run)!

In the other corner we have the former queen of the Amazons, Delphyne! A descendant of the women that were cursed by Athena, the gorgons, Delphyne was part of the Amazons until she defeated Princess Artume and rightfully became their new queen. She’s currently kicking ass alongside Amadeus Cho in Chaos War!

There’s time to vote until Tuesday 2AM GMT!

Winners from the previous four matches! Shulkie won with double the votes than Abigail and I’m happy to say that Faiza won comfortably too! Natasha won with a bit more than ten votes, which says a lot about Monica’s fans that are out there. Mantis and Blink were tied for a while, but the Celestial Madonna was able to pull through and won by five votes. Thanks everyone for voting!

First Round: Matches 27 & 28

I’m posting this super early, but I’ve been testing the queue and the result was that I can’t trust it, so I’d rather not take the risk. There’s still three more hours to vote in match-up #25 and match-up #26 if you haven’t yet.

Match-up #27: She-Hulk versus Abigail Brand

The cousin of Bruce Banner, Jennifer Walters is a hard-working and very good lawyer. After being shot by some mobsters, Bruce saved her life by giving her a blood transfusion of his own blood. Possessing some of his cousin’s irradiated blood, Jennifer became able to transform into She-Hulk. She’s been a member of the Avengers and will now return to her own book alongside Lyra!

Little is known about Abigail’s personal story other than the fact that she’s the daughter of a human and an alien being. She’s a commanding officer of S.H.I.E.L.D. and leader of S.W.O.R.D., an agency that deals with extraterrestrial stuff. Abigail was first seen in Astonishing X-Men and was the protagonist of the very short-lived S.W.O.R.D. series (which, btw, I recommend reading :D).

Vote!

Match-up #28: Black Widow vs Photon

One of the greatest spies, Natasha was raised by the Black Widow Ops, a program that trained young girls for espionage missions. There, Natasha was subjected to biological and psychological enhancements, which explains why she lived through WWII and still appears quite youthful. Brainwashed over and over again by the K.G.B., Natasha was finally able to set free and became an ally of the Avengers. She currently stars on her own series.

Monica was a lieutenant in the New Orleans harbor patrol until she was hit by extra-dimensional energy produce by an energy-disruptor. She gained the power of controlling and producing any form of energy from the electromagnetic spectrum. Known as Captain Marvel in the beginning, she received training from the Avengers and became one of their best members, at times being their leader. She finally changed her name to Photon out of respect for the son of the original Captain Marvel. Monica is also the leader of the superhero team Nextwave.

There’s time to vote until Monday 12AM GMT!
