An interesting starting field, with a lot of villains squaring off against each other. My picks will be in a comment, so as not to unduly influence anyone else's opinions. Who are you voting for? Who should advance to the Round of Sixteen? Let me know! Rally support for your favorites, and remember -- there's nothing so convincing as good, solid, text-based evidence. These polls will be open until early next week, so there's plenty of time to build enthusiasm for your picks.
Let the games begin!
