It was September, 1987. Guy Gardner was fed up with Batman's high-and-mighty attitude, and decided it was time to take the Dark Knight down a peg. He took off his power ring, and Batman promptly knocked him out cold, with "ONE PUNCH!" In Green Lantern: Rebirth #6 in 2005,  Hal Jordan took down Batman with a similar singular assault. Now, in Newsarama's Favorite ONGOING SERIES of 2009, we get to see if the Bat-family can take down the GL's in one punch, vice-versa, or if this will be a fight to the final round. It's Detective Comics vs. Green Lantern Corps. It's Batman and Robin vs. Green Lantern. Let's rock.

For Round 2, we'll be pitting the winners of Brackets 1 and 4 against each other, and the winners of Brackets 2 and 3 facing off. After one week of voting, the winners of Round 2 will go head to head in a final round to see who is crowned the Favorite ONGOING SERIES of 2009.

Remember, you don’t have to be a registered Newsarama reader to participate. EVERYONE can help choose by picking one choice in each of the below brackets. Again, there are TWO of them in Round 2, so keep going until you’ve voted in BOTH brackets. Voting for Round 2 will remain open for 1 week.

** 11 Newsarama contributors submitted their lists for their personal Top 20 in each of the five categories. The results were tabulated using a weighted system that awarded an escalating number points according to how high the nominee appeared on the list - 20th place was worth 1 point, 19th place 2 points ... up to 20 points for 1st place.

The final nominee lists for round 1 are the top 16 nominees with the highest point totals in each category.

Each bracket is seeded according to point total, with the highest vote-getter in each bracket moving onto the next round.

The winners of Round 2's polls will go head-to-head in the final round to see who will be crowned champion.

There will be 3 total rounds for each category (the “Sweet 16”, “Final Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2009”.
