Eddie Brock moves on. Now the bracket looks like this...

Marvel Battle Royale

And the next matchup features a duo that, well, actually, used to have a book with this titleSpider-Man vs. Deadpool!

Spider-Man vs. Deadpool

Making the argument on behalf of Deadpool's chances in this fight is none other than SPIDER-MAN VS. DEADPOOL (2016) scribe Robbie Thompson!

"Deadpool would beat Spider-Man. Easily. With the power of love. And dance. Also because he's a stone cold assassin, and as paper beats rock, assassin beats arachnid."

And making the argument on behalf of the Wall-Crawler's odds is...also Robbie Thompson!

"Spider-Man would beat Deadpool. Easily. Because Deadpool loves Spider-Man, and therefore could never bring himself truly to hurt Spider-Man. Spider-Man would take Deadpool down, but still visit him both in the hospital and later in prison. Why? Because friendship takes maximum effort, people."

Who would know better than the person who was tasked with asking himself Spider-Man vs. Deadpool-themed questions every single day for almost two years!? Which, side note, seems really healthy!

Anyway! Members of the Merry Marvel Marching Society, it's time for you to decide who wins this round. Head over to Marvel's TwitterFacebook, or Instagram to cast your ballot in this thumpin' throwdown...right now!
