After 15 rounds of competition, Enchantress defeated Dormammu to take 1st place in MarvelLegends.Net's Most Wanted Marvel Legends Winter 2011 Finals Tournament. 478 fans contributed their top ten most wanted lists, nominating a total of 567 Marvel characters they wanted to be the next Marvel Legend. On November 7th the Most Wanted Marvel Legends Winter 2011 Finals Tournament kicked off by selecting the 128 most popular nominees and seeding them into the double elimination brackets. Each round of competition lasted 48 hours, and after 2 weeks of competition we were finally able to begin placing those who were eliminated in the top 24 finalist.

Enchantress and Dormammu both lasted in the winners' bracket up to round 12, when Dormammu defeated Enchantress and sent her to the elimination bracket. But Enchantress persevered and defeated all comers in the elimination bracket, which earned her a rematch with the only character to defeat her. She and Dormammu faced each other again in round 14, with Dormammu as the undefeated champion of the winners? bracket, and Enchantress the champion of the elimination bracket. This time Enchantress was more than ready. She defeated Dormammu in their rematch, giving Dormammu his first and only loss, tying them and sending them to a 15th round of competition to determine once and for all who the fans' champion is.

In their third face off of the tournament, Enchantress held on to her momentum and again defeated the dreaded Dormammu to solidify her hold as the fans' champion.

The top 24 list is a sight to behold, and a list that makes Marvel Legends fans drool at the possibilities. Only 11th place Rogue and 21st place Scarlet Witch have had the Marvel Legends honor before, but fans clearly wish for Hasbro to take on those characters again.

Thank you to all who participated in the tournament. Fan participation makes all the difference in making the results an accurate and important representation of what Marvel Legends fans want, and with 1,394 participants, it can only be considered an overwhelming success. The results will be sent to the Marvel Legends team at Hasbro. Nominations are already underway for the next tournament, which will take place in June 2012.
