PostSubject: 11/18/15 - Question of the Week!   Wed Nov 18, 2015 7:30 am

This time, much like YouTube's popular Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down, our question of the week will be a few match-ups between Star Wars and various other pop culture characters!

For the sake of time, I'm going to list three matches, and you guys can comment down below on who you think would win in a fight and why!

1) Darth Vader VS. Wolverine of the X-Men



2) Han Solo VS. Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead




*Note: Just because Han has his blaster and Rick uses traditional guns/ ammo does not necessarily mean he automatically wins! What a Face

3) Boba Fett VS. Judge Dredd



______________

If there are those of you unfamiliar with any of the characters listed -- No problem! -- Pick the fight based off of what you know or what you've heard!

I hope you guys enjoy debating about this for a week! (or maybe more)  :clap: and let me know if you'd like this to be a once a month treat or I can make it a separate topic along with our normal Star Wars theme question of the week.

Enjoy!

Okay, I'm a grown man about to break this down. Where did my life go wrong? lol!

Wolverine vs. Vader - I guess the real battle is a lightsaber vs Adamantium. If the lightsaber can slice through, I'll give Vader the edge here. He can also use the force to throw Wolverine into a reactor and literally vaporize his flesh so he can't regenerate. However, if the saber can't cut adamantium I think Vader would underestimate Wolverine and Logan might get close enough to rip him apart.

Solo vs. Grimes - Han might be a smooth talking scoundrel , but Rick is a survivor. From what we've seen, Han's best move was him swinging that Biker Scout around. I think Rick would just punish him one on one.

Fett vs. Dredd - I'm not into the Dredd Mythos but I just like Boba Fett so i'll give it to him Smile

I am going to break this down as easy as possible.

Wolverine vs vader - Vader all the way. Even if lightsabers have no affect on admantium, wolverine has to breathe to be able to live. Pretty sure a simple force choke and wolverine is toast.

Han vs Rick - Haven't watched the walking dead so I don't know how edgy Rick is; but I did watch the original cut of star wars (you know before Lucas jacked it up) and good old Han shot first so I imagine Han would just shoot that guy and move on tossing a coin to the local bar keep.

Fett vs Dredd - Gotta go Dredd all the way on this. Fett got taken out by a blind guy with a stick. Dredd is an ultimate badass so I don't see him making a stupid mistake like turning his back to someone during a fight.

Or how did it go so right? Laughing


There's some great matchups here!

1. I'm pretty sure Vader would make Wolverine his little bitch. However, much like the Batman vs Vader video, if Wolverine can quickly damage Vader's life support, it would be a much tougher. In the end though, I think Vader takes it.

2. On the surface, I think Rick takes it -- like John said, he's learned to be a survivor over a few years of living on the edge. But like Bryan said, the Han we saw in the original cut of Star Wars shoots first, so I think he can be a very tough match. In the end, I'm going with Rick.

3. I don't know much about Dredd, other than he's a badass. We all know Fett's a badass too. It's a draw with both men hospitalized with long term injuries.

Love the above answers  :clap: Matt, Id vote for this being a regular feature cheers


Vader vs Wolverine
Win for Vader.
Vader uses psychological tactics against Wolverine by making him watch a lethal combination of the George Lucas Special Ed changes and the PT. Wolverine becomes a mess as he can't handle the acting of Hayden Christensen and seeing the ghost of Anakin replaced at the end of ROTJ.

Han vs Rick
Win for Han.
I would prefer to say Rick's survival skills put him in good stead and he wins, but Han also uses psychological Lucas Special Ed tactics and tips Rick over the edge into mindspill with images of Greedo shooting first and Han stepping on Jabba's tail.

Fett vs Dredd
Draw.
Dredd is way too prepared to fall for any psychological trickery and has already done his homework on Fett. Although Fett has a good choice of weapons to hand, so too does Dredd. Dredd orders Fett off to an iso-cube. But just as Dredd is about to claim victory, Fett sneakily makes him watch the Holiday Special which causes Dredd to fall asleep. Fett escapes and lives to fight another day!

I like that Paul, no actual combat just using Lucas's screw ups to win. Very Happy
