Fan Favorite – Sweet 16: Daredevil vs. Lisbeth Salander; Kurisu Makise vs. Nyanpire

by

Our final day of Sweet 16 match-ups features a pair of Geek characters who barely made it out of the first round. Daredevil was able to sense his way through Johnny Cage and Lisbeth Salander managed to crack Argo’s code. Can Matt Murdock maneuver his way past another opponent, or will Wasp hack her way through another problem?

Finally, the final pair of Otaku characters face off in an unlikely anime battle. In the first round, Kurisu Makise was able to out-smart her way past Estelle Bright, while Nyanpire’s nyan nyan was too much to handle for Inga. Which final anime character will find themselves in the Elite 8?

The round of 16 is almost complete. Vote and help send two final characters into the Elite 8 after the break!

Daredevil (Daredevil)

After having been put through a pretty horrendous time since, well, 1998, the Man Without Fear has returned with an all-new devil may care, swashbuckling outlook on life. It’s somewhat refreshing to say the least, and ever since the launch of #1, this new Daredevil series has been a delight. Of course, it probably won’t last and will all presumably come crashing down around him, but for the time being, I’m really enjoying see Matt run around with a smile on his face once again.

Oh, and all the “I’m not Daredevil” jokes are epic. I loved the sweater he wore in #7. How can you not smile along with Matt? -sjhawkins

Lisbeth Salander (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo)

Ms. Salander broke out with this past winter’s David Fincher adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. As a female character, she is by far one of the strongest and deserving candidates for this tournament of fan favourites. She can hold her own against all competition in my mind and she’s got the appeal among both genders. -m-paoword

Kurisu Makise (Steins;Gate)

Kurisu is a nerd’s wet dream. Not only is she intelligent and logical in scientific fronts, but also an active enthusiast in popular forums designed for shut-ins. Nothing wrong with that — nothing at all. Just add in the tsundere aspect and she only becomes a more intriguing character. 

But really, I really like her. Something about smart girls with extraordinary knowledge is attractive. Nerdy is the way to go. And the way she dresses… It’s not seductive at all. Nope. -sjakim

Nyanpire (Nyanpire: The Animation)

Immortal cat, what else can I say? Nyanpire is more than just part cat, part vampire, he’s fully loveable as well. You don’t have to worry about him draining your blood, anything red will do. He also has some cool and cute friends. From a samurai cat named Masamunya (who is a little mixed up) to an angel cat known as Nyatenshi, who was kicked out of heaven for indecent behavior. There is even a responsible younger step-brother type who goes by the name Chachamaru.

With all this kitty cuteness overload, how can you not like this little blood sucker? -somakun
