The Annoying Rival Battle Tournament - Who Will Win?

I have scoured comic book history, and picked out who I think are the top eight annoying rivals. I split them into two brackets - Secret ID annoying rivals and Teen comic annoying rivals - and then I seeded them.

Here are the two brackets:

SECRET ID ANNOYING RIVALS

1. Flash Thompson - Peter Parker's annoying rival from high school
vs.
4. J. Devlin Davenport - Bruce Wayne's annoying rival in the Gotham social scene

2. Steve Lombard - Clark Kent's annoying rival from WGBS
vs.
3. Cliff Carmichael - Ronnie Raymond's annoying rival from high school

TEEN COMIC ANNOYING RIVALS

1. Reggie Mantle - Archie's annoying rival in Riverdale
vs.
4. Hedy Wolfe - Patsy Walker's annoying rival

2. Alexandra Cabot - Josie and the Pussycats' annoying rival
vs.
3. Cheryl Blossom - Betty and Veronica's annoying rival

Please share your thoughts of who is the better annoying rival in each matchup, and I will post my picks for the winners of the first round on Tuesday!

1. Flash Thompson

Sorry, even I, a Batfan, can barely remember Davenport.

2. Steve Lombard

Steve is worse than Cliff for one inescapable reason: even Steve's WARDROBE was offensive.


1. Reggie Mantle

Reggie, hands down. No one is more annoying than Reggie Mantle.

2. Alexandra Cabot

Well. Almost no one.

Oh, REGGIE. Sorry, brief brain blip there.

Amended vote, second bracket: 1 and 3

Flash Thompson has it all over Davenport. You gotta love how he hated Peter but loved Spider-Man.

I'm not familiar with the other two, but I've gotta go with Cliff Carmichael just because I love alliterative names.

Reggie and Cheryl for the other two.

I always thought of Veronica as Betty's annoying rival.

Chosing based on which character I'd most like to see stuffed into the business end of a wood chipper: Davenport, Steve, Hedy, and Alexandra.
