March Madness Rules
Like any other 64 team tournament, our bracket pairs super teams, heroes and villains, in one, single, head-to-head, single elimination match.
Each match can have one and only one winner who advances along the bracket until there’s no one left to beat.
These are NOT a fight “to the death.” Once one team, “wins” the fight, than the fight is over.
Even though we all know that the good guys will eventually win, they could easily lose any given individual battle!
Each team is whisked from their home reality to their individual region’s stadium. If they know one another already, they know one another. If they don’t, they don’t! They DO however, watch each previous match! So Second round teams have seen everyone in their region before at least once!
Players will attempt to make as many correct predictions as they are able
Each team will be selected and seeded by Ultimate Comics employees based upon their powers, abilities, and storylines
Teams will engage in a head to head matchup and a winner will be selected
