We’ve reached Round 3 of our Superhero Showdown bracket game. Some of the most famous comic book heroes in history have fallen by the wayside in the bloody battle to decide which costumed crimefighter is the Greatest Superhero Ever. (So long, Hulk! Farewell, Punisher! Sayonara, Wonder Woman!) The eight remaining contestants are a diverse bunch. Four come from Marvel; three come from DC; and the dark horse contender hails from, well, Dark Horse. You can vote today in a pair of quarter-final matches guaranteed to split your geek brain asunder. First, a top-seeded global icon will face off against a relative newcomer: It’s Superman vs. Hellboy, with the latter fresh from a pair of bruising upset victories over Ghost Rider and Captain Marvel. Then, one of Marvel’s most beloved characters will face off against a misunderstood DC comeback kid: It’s Spider-Man vs. Green Lantern. (Green Lantern’s only weakness: Yellow. Spider-Man’s only weakness: Existential angst.)
