Superhero Showdown – Round 3

Want a way to earn extra raffle tickets in the Readers, Assemble! Summer Reading Club? One way is to vote each week for the best superhero from DC Comics and Marvel! Once you’ve voted, confirm that you’ve completed the week’s challenge on the Readers, Assemble! website, and come into the library to pick your raffle ticket!

This week’s category is Super Rich Guys. Some of the best superheroes (and villains) have plenty of money to buy them powers, state-of-the-art technology, and gadgets. Voting for this category will end on Thursday, June 25 at 11:45 p.m.


Don’t know a whole lot about superheroes? Not to worry! We’ve done some research for you that might help you make your decision. (All of the information is from the DC Comics and Marvel wikis, so if you don’t agree with any of this information, take it up with them!)
