The Chicago Tribune is running a Best Superhero Tourney, with readers voting for their favorites among a field of 32 super-heroes from various companies including DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and more. Among the matches in the “Kevin Smith Region:” The Flash vs Flash Gordon.
Obviously, the Flash could run circles around Flash Gordon (though there seem to be plenty of people who get them mixed up). Super-speed vs. a jet pack seems like a pretty short contest.
The first round of voting runs through July 11. Run over there and have fun!
Other “how appropriate” match-ups: Hellboy vs. Daredevil. Batman vs. the Spirit. Most bizarre: Silver Surfer vs. Popeye.
