We’ve made it! Week 3 Results have been tallied, and we have our winners and our losers for the last round of battles. First, the LOSERS:
Dean held his own during his first two battles, but he was no match for everyone’s favorite android, Data. Data gets Dean easily with a phaser shot to the chest. Goodbye, my beloved demon hunter. If you need comforting with your defeat, I’m right here.
After brutally crushing his opposition in the past, John McClane is taken down by a teenage girl. I don’t know why that amuses me so much—I am a huge Die Hard fan, and I have great faith in Mr. McClane—but the fact that he was beaten by a teenage witch totally tickles me. I assume she froze him and then pushed him off the roof. If only he would stop going up into tall buildings . . .
And now . . . the fight we’ve all been waiting for . . .
The 2011 Ultimate Geek Battle of Blood . . .
16 contenders went into this tournament, and the only two with any kind of superhuman abilities were Data and Hermione. Personally, I find this fascinating. Where’s the belief in the human spirit, voters? Every science fiction and fantasy tale in existence likes to stack their underdog human hero against more powerful villains, and their only true weapons to defeat said villains are the powers of perseverance, of spirit, of love. In essence, it is the hero’s humanity that allows them to win.
Apparently here, on this blog, humanity can kiss its sweet ass goodbye because it just got avada kedavra’ed and shot out the friggin airlock for good measure.
Now, more importantly . . . who will win the Geek Superbowl this year? Who will you vote for to be your champion? Is it android or witch? Technology or magic? Science or faith?
Voting is up until Tuesday, February 15th at 11:59 pm.
I’m excited to see who will take the crown.
