Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Civil Skirmish: The Winners!

“Pick a side, and then make it better than the other side.”Those were the instructions I gave in our Civil War-themed Photoshop contest. These are the results.

Earlier this week I mentioned postponing these results to the weekend due to sickness, but I made it back in time to run them on Wednesday, so here we are, face to face, a couple of superhero teams in battle.

What I was looking for was teams full of various characters. Just massive arrays of characters. I didn’t get many of those, but I did get plenty of additions that certainly made one team better than the rest.

Look at this week’s overall winner from Linkstwitch. There is no way Team Tony can beat this. No way.

Some entries were more subtle than others. Here are my other favorites.

This Week’s My Other Favorites

Gorillantor missed the whole pick one side memo, but the results are lovely.

Pedro Silva started off his entry with “Because sgt peppers is too cliche,” prompting our own Civil War.

Doctor Nein’s is kind of cheap, but at least he didn’t replace the whole team except Black Panther with Power Rangers.

Though now that I see it, Vazer’s entry works as well.
