Hold 322’s 2013 Tournament of Heroes continues, and today I have for you the results of the second round. This week I’m too lazy to share commentary on each match, as I’ve done previously, but if you really want to know how JC, Jeff and I came to our conclusions, all you have to do is listen to this week’s episode and find out in the most entertaining way possible.

*For those of you who actually listened to the show, you may recall that Jeff (after much back and forth) and I both ended up voting for Logan, but since then I’ve changed my mind and my vote; thus Supergirl is the official winner. Not that Kara should celebrate her victory much, since next round she will face the Hulk…

 

Defeated LoganThat’s it for this week’s match-ups. We’ll try to get through both the sweet 16 and elite 8 match-ups next week. Feel free to share your own opinions on the fights so far, if you want to.
