By far the most subjective category, Covers proved the premise with Round 1, having three big upsets. Interestingly, most of these brackets were not very close calls, however, so there is some kind of consensus. With 16 contestants widdled down to 8, the top three seeds survived, but seeds four, five, and eight were knocked out by their lower-seeded opponents.

This week, two Super covers survive, three Marvel covers are in play, and two Bat-covers go head-to-head. Now, it's time for your vote! We figured out a new way of doing the images this time around, since some didn't notice the gallery last week, which should make things considerably easier for you, the voter!

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 four of them in Round 2, so keep going until you’ve voted in ALL four brackets. Voting for Round 2 will remain open for 1 week.

Newsarama Note: Full methodology for nomination is below the polls.

10 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 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.

There will be 4 total rounds for each category (the “Sinister 16”, "Extremis 8", “Fantastic Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2010” for each group.
