Welcome everyone. I’m Christopher DeFilippis and this is DeFlip Side.
Sixty-four has become 32, and we move into Round 2 of DeFlip Side’s 2015 Sci-Fi Madness! And an interesting round it promises to be.
There were very few close calls in Round 1. The most heated competitions were between Rocket Raccoon/Mad Max and Hit Girl/Gamora. The Road Warrior and the foul-mouthed purple-haired vigilante eked it out with only two votes each, sending both Guardians packing. Star Lord Peter Quill fared better in his bout with Lando Calrissian, but that victory could turn him into Indiana Jones’s whipping boy.
On a more personal note, I’m sorry to see Steve Rogers wash out in the first round. I love Supes, but Cap has become my favorite MCU character and I’d have liked him to go further. And I can’t believe how badly Princess Leia trounced Captain Tight Pants! I wasn’t expecting a victory for Mal, but I thought he’d have held his own a little bit better.
Now let’s get to some of the more insane Round 2 pairings: James Kirk vs. R2D2? Spock vs. Superman? Batman vs. The Hulk???? I can’t wait to see fandom run rabid! It’s Madness, I tell you! Madness!
Vote in Round 2!
