Battle of the Super Heroes - Results
But I am none of those super heroes, so let me just apologize for posting this late.
On to the battle:
The first round of this true Super Hero battle was interesting as it saw votes come in for almost every theme song. The Justice League received one vote, Batman received three, Spiderman two and Inspector Gadget one. Batman takes an early lead.
The second battle was between only three of the contenders. They were Spiderman, receiving four of the votes, Batman with another two and Inspector Gadget with another vote. This put Spiderman swinging to the top of the list.
For the third round of battles, it was another three-way tie between Batman, He-Man and Inspector Gadget, each receiving two votes. With the exception of the X-Men, so far every theme song has been represented. With the extra votes, Batman was again dominating this Super Hero dog pile.
Inspector Gadget wins the fourth and final round with three votes. But with Batman and Spiderman each receiving an additional two votes, Batman held on to his victory. Just barely beating the Spiderman theme song.
The Final Tally?
Batman - 9
Inspector Gadget - 7
He-Man - 2
Justice League -1
X-Men - 0

FAE - Jeffrey, no apologies necessary here, this was really a good idea and a lot of fun.
Stephen T. McCarthy - JEFFREY, this was a fantabulous BOTB installment. No reason whatsoever to sound the least bit apologetic. I wish I'd thought of this one. I'm 56, so the only two that I knew were SPIDERMAN and BATMAN. This was a total no-brainer, piece o' cake vote for me: Duh-Duh-Duh-Duh-Duh-Duh-Duh-Duh-DUH! BATMAN!!!
Man, when I was a child I drank, ate and breathed Batman. I would do anything my Ma told me to at the threat "there'll be no Batman tonight..." Anything she said. Done!
Robin – I watched Spiderman, Batman & Robin, and the Justice League. In fact, I remember getting up "early" on Saturday morning so I didn't miss Justice League. As you know, you couldn't record it and watch it later. Plus, cartoons only aired from 8-noon on Saturday and that was it. Done for the week.
Arlee Bird - No real contest for me. Hands down my favorite is "The Batman Theme". I used to have the 45 and it's a nice piece of music. I also do like the theme from Inspector Gadget--classic in a Henry Mancini "Pink Panther" sort of way.
dolorah - Ah Jeff, that was a lot of fun. Brought back fond memories of Saturday morning cartoons when I was a kid.
Cherdo –Wow, this is fantastic! So much for traditon - I love the way you're thinking outside of the box (which is a television from the 70s, by the way).
Stephanie Faris - Spiderman...who can forget that song? It gets stuck in your head and won't go away!
Michele Truhlik What a fun battle Jeffrey!!
Spacerguy - Awesome BOTB selection
Madilyn Quinn –What a neat idea!
Guilie Castillo - The one that gave me chills was He-Man, hahahahahaha. I was *not* expecting that. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I watched Spiderman and Batman mostly in Spanish (growing up in Mexico), and the songs were also translated. But He-Man was one of those Saturday morning cartoons I watched a lot during the 2 years I spent in the US — and, obviously, in English.
Crystal Collier - Really? REALLY? I'm supposed to just pick one?
Cathy Kennedy - Jeffrey, this is a fun battle.
Adam West, AKA Batman. Celebrates his victory this week with the Bat-Dance
