Next tournament maybe we could vote in a "substitute" before the beginning round. One that would not officially be entered until a DQ situation and then would fill that 'slot'. If a DQ never arises then that substitute never enters.
Just an idea. :harley:

Problem with substitute is that it would be possible for a substitute to enter the finals without being in any previous rounds. Last tournament had both contestants advancing in the event of a tie for 3 way battles in the next round and I decided to change it up for this tournament.

Yeah, I could see that being an issue. But since these battles are not consequetive or any damage recieved lasts to the next battle the main issue is going to be those "one of a kinds" battles where, for example, Dr. Strange faced Supermen. We all know that recently Superman has the added burden of magic as a weakness. So Dr. Strange has the perfect advantage (besides possibly being made entirely of kryptonite.) Now against other opponents such as Molecule Man (who has no knowledge of kryptonite) or Thanos Superman would fare better and perhaps would not have been eliminated and then as a substitute may skew the finals if dropped in on the last minute.
