TNIAAM Marvel Not-So-Secret Wars 2021: Sinister Sixteen

We’ve made it to “the second weekend.”

Last year, in lieu of a basketball season for the Syracuse Orange we tapped into our affinity for pop culture and comics to fill the COVID sized gap in the sports year. That led to the TNIAAM Marvel Civil War. With the drop of Black Widow last week and the finale of Loki this week, now seemed as good a time as any to refresh that bracket. I give to you, the 2021 TNIAAM Marvel Not-So-Secret Wars.


Round two is in the books.

  • Deadpool continues to kill the Marvel Universe. I think we’ve seen this before.
  • Lot of #13 seeds making waves. Deadpool and Groot both making the Sinister Sixteen.

Without further ado, the updated bracket:

Buschema Region:

Some highlights in this region

  • Chalk set up, but not from lack of trying. Wanda took the Odinson right to the buzzer and T’Challa gave Cap a run for his money.

Byrne Region:

Some highlights in this region

  • Richards knocks off his best bud and Ben Grimm heads home. He gets the other good Doctor, instead of a matchup against his wife.
