*ComputerNerd and I have agreed to compile a list of Superheroes which together will create the entirety of Superheroes on which this debate is based.

Athias's List of Superheroes:

Marvel:
Ant-man, Black Widow, Captain America, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers,) Hawkeye, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Quicksilver, Vision.

Detective Comics:
Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, the Flash, Green Lantern, Hawk-man/woman, Martian Manhunter, Superman, Wonder Woman.

ComputerNerd's List of Superheroes:

Marvel:
Black Panther, Deadpool , Dr. Strange, Drax, Gamora, Groot, Rocket Racoon, Star Lord, The Wasp, Winter Soldier, Wolverine.

Detective Comics:
Animal Man, Beast Boy, Deadshot, Doctor Fate, Doctor Manhattan, Raven, Robin, Shazam (Captain Marvel,) Starfire, Supergirl.

Burden of Proof:

The burden of proof is determined by the proposition, so it's Pro's onus to substantiate the affirmation of the proposition; it's the contender's onus to provide a counterargument refuting Pro's affirmation, or demonstrate that Pro has failed to meet his onus.

I concede this debate. (I know, First Round, right?) But it turns out that I don't have enough characters to make the comparisons. I've been working on this argument for much of the day, and it turns out that making the comparison using just 10 of the 42 Superheroes listed consumed nearly all of the 15,000 characters allotted. Of course, using just 10 doesn't satisfy a "majority." And given that trimming it down would significantly weaken the argument, I've decided to simply concede. (Not to mention, there isn't much time left to retool the argument.) So, I'm offering ComputerNerd the courtesy of my concession especially since it's three rounds. Vote Con.

PRO has forfeited the debate for a lack of characters. I accept his concession.

I’m disappointed we did not get to fully debate this topic. However, I understand PRO’s reason and accept his concession.
