Out of the eighteen superhero teams that were chosen to represent the so-called classic days of Marvel Comics, which for the purpose of this poll, runs from 1961 up until 1990 (yeah yeah, I know, 1990 is not all that old and/or classic, but I really wanted to throw some of those eighties bands like Excalibur and X-Factor, into the mix), it was pretty much a two, almost three way race for the top spot. Battling it out for that aforementioned top spot were those uncanny mutant renegades and that non-team of defending dark heroes. In other words, it was a battle between the X-Men and the Defenders. The former was to be expected, but the latter was somewhat of a surprise. Granted, it was a welcome surprise, as I cast my vote for Dr. Strange and his Defenders, but a surprise nonetheless. It was a great thing indeed, to see all the love for those often all too underrated Defenders of my childhood comic book reading days. In the end though, the spoils of war would go to those wacky mutants, with 20 votes to the Defenders' 19. And of course, we're talking about those wacky mutants from back in the day, long before there were 23 X-titles out each month. As for that third team that almost made it a three-way race, The Avengers, long before there were 17 Avengers titles each month, scored 14 votes. And that's your top three, baby!
So, there ya go. Now all you have to do is head on over to the poll and get your vote on. This poll will run for five weeks, ending at midnight EST the night of Wednesday, August 18th, with the results (and the announcement of a brand new poll) being posted on August 19th. You also have until then to let everyone you come in contact with know about our little poll here at All Things Kevyn. So share share share. And as for all those Tarantino haters out there...screw you, motherfuckers! As for how to vote, let me tell ya. Sure, you can give your choice in the comments section below (and I do encourage comments, so comment up galore - I'll love ya forever for it) but for your vote to actually count (no hanging chads here!) you must go over to the poll itself, which to reiterate, can be found oh so conveniently near the top of the sidebar (really, ya can't miss it) and do what you must. It's easy peezy, lemon squeezy. You can also check out the running results over there as well. Then after you vote, feel free to hop back over here and comment away. Remember, I'll love ya forever for it. So, with all that said, get on over there and get your vote on - and tell everyone you know to do the same! And let's try getting those vote totals up from the measly 100 votes tallied with our Mighty Marvel poll. I just know we can get that total up past 200, or even maybe 300. Imagine that! That's it gang. See ya 'round the web. Now get out there and vote vote vote, or I'll sic Honey Bunny on ya!
