Superheroes and Supervillains Results

9:53 AM
This morning, on my way to work, i saw a man crash into traffic signal post. Being the mere mortal that i am, i simply stood on the sidewalk in shock, and, i won't lie, some laughter, as he proceeded to carry the post with him a solid 12 feet before it fell over and crushed his car, killing him in the process. Actually it didn't do that, it fell the other way and he was fine. The point of this anecdote, though, is that as a fleshy (some say too fleshy) human being, with no apparent superpowers, i was powerless to help him, even if i had wanted to (which i'm not saying i did or didn't). But superheroes, those beings of modern day myths and legends, if one of them had been around, well perhaps our dear sweet motorist could have been saved (if the post were to have fallen and crushed him, which it didn't, but whatever).
Similarly though, as we all know from watching one too many spiderman cartoon during our formative childhood years, with great power comes great responsibility. And some people, some nefarious ne'er-do-wells, choose to exercise their power in the most irresponsible of ways, to triumph evil rather than good. Luckily, we have this pantheon of superheroes, these honorable men and women defending us from their not so good counterparts. And so, given this amazing pool from which to pick from, we, your friendly neighborhood fantasy drafters set about to select our all-star team of villains and heroes. It was a brutal battle, complete with bickering, quick one liners, and the occasional kapow to the head. But in the end, teams were selected, and i like to think, that at least for this day, good conquered evil. Although, as we all know, thats an assertion best made by our commentators. That said, here are the results.

is there a reason "Professor" is in bold?

I'm kind of sad about the absence of the Invisible Woman...mostly because I had that Marvel card in elementary school, and it was highly coveted.

I bolded "Professor" because he was listed as "Dr." originally. He ain't no Doctor. He's a Professor. The Napoleon of Villainry.

Also, Sarah, you're a huge nerd.
