fridayfightnight Logo

There seems to be enough interest for me to run another Friday Night Fights  therefore this weeks poll position will be dedicated to possible Themes for FNF.

Monsters: Five different monster types such as Vampires, Demons, Golems, Bestial monsters etc.

Super Team: A five member team of supers with 5 different Hero/villain types such as Brick, Blaster, Gadgeteer,  Martial Arts, etc

Mix Genre: Five characters from a mix of genre such as Fantasy, Super, Horror, Sci-Fi, etc.

Historical Figures as Supers: Five characters from five different historical periods of time such as ancient Rome, Ancient Eygpt, Early America, French Revolution ect. The catch of this would be that you need to re-image a true historical figure from the given time period as if he or she had been SuperHero of Supervillain back in his or her day.

Public Domain Remakes: I select five public domain characters you will need to re-design.

Other: Some other theme you'd like to see.




Last week I asked which party role you prefer when gaming, Tank, DPS, Healer, or Crowd Control. The Result of the poll based on your votes is .... Tank ... winning by just one vote, with DPS coming in second.

Poll Position: Party Roles

This weeks poll position will visit the topic of party roles. Now this is more aimed towards MMORPG's however the concept is easily applied to pen and paper RPG's also. So here we go which of the following is your preferred role while playing an MMO or P&P RPG?

Tank:  tanks redirect enemy attacks or attention toward themselves in order to protect other characters or units. Since this role often requires them to suffer large amounts of damage, they rely on large amounts of vitality or armor, evasiveness and misdirection, or self regeneration. Tanks are often represented as large or heavily armored.

Crowd Control:  the crowd control players role is to limit the size of an attacking force via use of powers and abilities that de-buff/debilitate the enemy.

Healer: the healer is a fairly self explanatory role. The healer is responsible for keeping the party alive during combat by healing damage taken or apply bluffs to the party to enhance the parties chance of surviving.

DPS: DPS stands for Damage Per Second, and it is this players role to hand out large amounts of damage in as short a period of time as possible.

So there you have your choices, please take a moment to vote and then let us know in the comments below why you chose as you did !


Last week on poll position I asked if you preferred playing a Hero or Villain in games and based on your votes the winner of that poll is  ..............

HERO with 69.66% of the vote!

Poll Position: Hero vs Villain ?


In this weeks poll position question I ask you simply; In Superhero Games weather that be an MMO, or a Pen and Paper game which do you prefer to play, a Hero or a Villain ?


Poll Position: Hawkman vs Archangel

This weeks poll position is going to be a classic verses poll. I'd like to know who you think would win a fight between Hawkman and Archangel.  Besides the various skills and abilities of the two combatants this is also a battle between  Nth metal and Organic Steel which is why I choose Archangel for this poll even though he has since reverted to Angel in the comics.


Last weeks poll position "The Jokes On You" I asked which version of TV or Movie Joker either Animated or live action you liked best and based on your votes the WINNER is: Mark Hamill  with Heath Ledger coming in a very close second!

SO that's it, please take a moment to vote in the current poll and leave a comment below about either the results of last weeks poll, or who you think should win this weeks ( OR BOTH!! )

Poll Position: The Results!


Every week I put up a new Poll Position post yet I never tell you all the results of the previous Poll, I am going to try and fix that oversight! Either in the new Poll position post, or in the comments ( in the event I write and schedule the poll before the previous one closes ) I will try to remember to post the results of the last poll. Right now I am going to give the results of the last five closed polls that I have posted:

Captain my Caption Winner: Malcolm Reynolds

Sexist Garb Edition Winner: Starfire

SuperGirl Fashion Winner:  The New 52 Supergirl 

Electro vs Static Winner:  Static 

Future Superhero Movies Winner:   Wonder Woman


So those are the winners are per your votes of MY last 5 polls!

Poll Position: The Jokes On You!

Hello Heromachiners, this week on "Poll Positition" I ask you the poignant question. Which Joker is  YOUR favorite ? For the purpose of this poll let us stick to Jokers we have seen either in the Movies or on Television and not the various interruptions of the Joker all the different writers and illustrators at DC comics have devised over the years. So with those parameters in please your choices are as follow:





BATMAN: TAS  JOKER ( Mark Hamill )


THE BATMAN JOKER ( Kevin Michael Richardson )




Other: I am certain there are many other voice actors from various animated movies or very old tv shows I have not listed here, so if one of those is your favorite that you can add it in as your vote!

Me, I am torn between Hamill and Ledger and just can't seem to pick one over the other however maybe you can pick just one! Leave your vote in the poll above and your comment below letting us all know your choice.
