Here's the deal. this is a tourny of comic book characters that is based off their movie versions. Thus their comic book feats matter not,only what they have done in the movie adaptations.
Since it would be a bit much to put lets say Catwoman in the same tournament as the hulk I have devised two tournament brackets.
The Lightweights and the Heavyweights to even things out better. Some where hard to place but feel free to give your input. One 18 man/women LW tournament and a 12 hero HW tourny. If your in just PM me.
Here are the contestants,nay,the fighters for the LW tourny!

Batman (Nolan series)
Daredevil
Marv (Sin City)
Jonah Hex
Wolverine
The Punisher (Dolph Lundrin style)
Blade
The Joker (Dark Knight)
Spiderman
Iron Man
rorschach (The Watchmen)
Cat Woman (Halle Berry)
Azazel (X Men First Class)
Elektra
Captain America
Constatine
Swamp Thing
The Green Goblin

The HW fighters

Superman (Superman returns)
Hulk (Avengers)
Hellboy
The Thing (Fantastic 4)
Green Lantern
Dr.Manhattan (The Watchmen)
Phoenix (X Men)
Thor
Ghost Rider
Silver Surfer (Fantastic 4 2)

Note: This is not the order they will fight in just who is fighting.

The first round results are in.
We have two ties!

Advancing: Iron man,(3-1) Blade (3-1),Marv(3-1),Wolverine (3-1),Batman (4-0)
Green Goblin (3-1),Rorschach(3-1).
Constatine and Elektra tied.
Punisher and Joker tied.

Thus two of our second round LW fights will feature 3 contestants. (i'm guessing since we have an even amount of players in case of any more ties I may lend my own vote. That feels cheap to me but I couldn't get anyone else in on the game)

Okay the winners of the second round/

Blade defeats Iron Man
Wolverine takes out Batman and Rorschach 3-1

Marv and Punisher both kill Elektra but tie.
Green Goblin and Joker tie.

So the first match of the next round will be
Blade vs Wolverine

To break the ties instead of just putting in my own input I went back to our original picks in the first round to tally who had the most votes between the second round contestants in the first round + the second round.

Counting like this Joker and Punisher both had 4 votes.
Marv and G.G. had 5,with only one vote against each.

So the second match in the next round will be Marv vs The Green Goblin.

IMO the Phoenix shouldnt be in the tourney as she is able to eliminate anything in existence with the blink of an eye

I'm not really gonna argue with you Bubbles because phoenix is powerful,in comics I would argue the phoenix force itself is the strongest force in comics,but movie wise I think she could be taken by Superman,Manhattan,maybe even Thor depending on Mjnoir.

In X3 Wolverine was able to survive her attack against manipulating everything at the molecular level,turning everything to ash. In all fairness you could argue it was because she had feelings for Logan and Jean was coming through not to kill him.
But if it was for the first reason than Hulk with his healing factor could penetrate through as well.

But if their is objection i'm not against changing the contestants. Is their anyone you had in mind to take her place?

I'm not a comic buff by any stretch of the imagination so your points seem valid. In staying with X-men theme, replace her with Beast? Maybe Doc Octavious or Deadpool? Just throwing names out there
