Battle Royale 2018

We asked each member of the Marvel Comics editorial staff to select their own champions to enter the Battle Royale. And in reverse order of seniority at the House of Ideas, they chose! Assistant Editor Lauren Amaro started working at Marvel HQ six months ago, so she chose first, and Senior Vice President/Executive Editor Tom Brevoort has been a member of the editorial staff for decades, so he chose last!

Last time around, Gwenpool took on D-Man, and the people chose...

The Battle Royale continues today, as Darren Shan's champ faces Jake Thomas' titan...

Eternity vs. Hulk

Not only did the editors nominate their own gladiators, they've also laid out exactly why you should be on their side! Here's Darren's pitch for...


"As strong and as mighty as the Hulk is, he’s still just a mortal. And he is but an infinitesimal speck in the cosmic EMBODIMENT of the Marvel Universe that is…Eternity!! ‘Nuff said."

And here's Jake's Jade Giant take for...


"You know what Eternity is? A long, vast stretch of cosmic nothingness. BORING. You know what’s not boring? A giant green monster who beats up anything that makes him mad. And just imagine for one second how mad Eternity would make the Hulk, talking all “you’re just an infinitesimal speck within my cosmic embodiment blah blah blah.” Oh man, if you were a giant green monster wouldn’t you just leap at the chance to punch the absolute mess out of that guy? Yes. You would. It would be awesome. And what’s Eternity gonna do? What Eternity has always done for all of existence: Just sit around, being a silly little punk, FOREVER. Hulk is the strongest one there is. Eternity is the boringest one there is. ‘Nuff said."

A double dose of 'nuff said! They really mean business.
