AFCBL: Final April Scores, Weeks 9-13

You guys, I finally won a month! And not just because April had a fifth and extra week, I even won after four weeks, and it’s about time. To help me in my most triumphant victory I enlisted Nova (powers: Energy Blast, Flight, Helmet Assist); let go of my two X-Women in favor of their newly-returned teammate, Nightcrawler (Supportive and Offensive Teleport, Swashbuckling); and dropped Superior Spider-Man to pick up his more Amazing counterpart (Offensive Webbing, Strength, Spider-Sense). Shaun dropped his spy and God in favor of the assassin, Elektra (Sai Stab, Resourceful Kill, Stealth Attack), and the god-like monster, Hulk (Hulk Clap, Hulk-Sized Strength, Rage reaching Critical Mass). Now it’s time to look back on how successful my first victory actually was.

The Real Uncanny Avengers (1-2): 46
Selfish Avengers (2-1): 40

Week Thirteen (April 30, 2014):
Shaun tries to use the extra week in April to gain some ground on my lead, but Hulk and the rest of the Selfish Avengers finally suffer their first loss. Captain America ends the month by pulling his usual stunt of showing up in four individual issues.

Week Ten (April 9, 2014):
I manage to score my fifth six-point week in the past six weeks of competition, but Shaun’s prodigal character Deadpool tips the scales by pulling off a perfect week – achieving every possible point in one issue.

Week Nine (April 2, 2014):
Shaun puts in one of the lowest scoring weeks for the league to start the third month, due in large part to Iron Man finally taking a break from comics. I cruise into an early lead with my usual six-points thanks to Cap and the new recruit, Nova.
