Poll Position: Uniformity!!

This weeks poll position question is Do you think that SuperHero Teams should have a common matching uniform?


Personally I don't think that the Heroes ( or villains for that matter ) need to have matching costumes, however they should have some kind of common element to tie them all together. Weather that element is a matching color scheme, or a prominent team logo ect. I believe the team members needs something that allows you to identify them as a member of that team at a glance. SO what do you think ? Should Super Teams have a matching uniform ? Take a moment to let us know by voting in the poll and leave a comment below to let us know why you feel the way you do!

Poll Position: Anime vs Western Cartoons

Anime vs WC



Folks this weeks Poll Position I am going to ask you a simple question. Which do you prefer to watch Western Style Cartoons or Japanese Anime?


I personally prefer anime over most western cartoon. There is just something about Anime that appeals to me over most cartoons you see on us TV. Don't get me wrong there are a far number of cartoons that I enjoy but if given a choice of watching say Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes or Ranma 1/2 I will choose watching Ranma 1/2.

Poll Position: Ms Marvel vs Wonder Woman

Ms Marvel vs Wonder Woman


Ladies and Gentlemen I know the traditional  character a vs character b Verses poll are not popular as some of my other poll formats like best costume or best logo.  Unfortunely I had a rather rough week this past week and was unable to put together one of those polls so this week I ask. "Who wins in a battle between Ms Marvel, and Wonder Woman"?

Wonder Woman Wiki:

Poll Position: Battle of the Super Insignia



Today's  Poll Position question is a simple one. Which of the above SuperHero, or SuperGroup's insignia do you think is the best and why?

Poll Position: Manga Books vs Graphic Novel!



This weeks poll position I am going a different direction then norm and I would like to ask you all the following. If given a choice would you rather read a Graphic Novel, or an Manga style book ?

I have read both Graphic novels and English translations of Japanese Manga and I have to say I much prefer the Graphic novel. While in general I prefer Anime over American cartoons the reverse is true for the comic book format mostly because no matter how good the story is I just can't get used to reading the panels from right to left instead of left to right.

So that is my preference tell us what you have to say on this matter below in the comments.

Poll Position: Armorers Challenge!



This weeks Poll Position I ask you to pick from a list of Power Armor wearing heroes and villain to pick your favorite based on  whatever criteria matters most to you.

Your Choices are as follows. The Beetle, The Blue Beetle, Crimson Dynamo, Doctor Doom, Force, Guyver One, Lex Luthor, Rocket Red, Steel, and Tech Jacket. 

These are mostly DC and Marvel characters, but there are a couple dark horses in there ( no pun intended). You may noticed I left a couple well known armor clad individuals off this list which I did for a reason. I did not want the popularity of Ironman and his ilk to slant the poll so I left them off.
