I made a rather long question of the week (Thanksgiving Edition), and when I was done and stepped away from the laptop to continue my day.. it struck me that most users on here don't even celebrate!  :I am stupid:  So that's no fair..

Instead of question of the week, or battle of the month (since Paul, Bryan and I were the only upvotes  Laughing ) it'll be "Battle of the Week!" Anyone can participate!

Without further ado:

Triple Threat Match!

Location: Endor



_________________________________________________________________________

Hellboy



VS.

Darth Maul



VS.

Green Arrow



*Don't forget -- If you don't have any prior knowledge of each character's background -- No sweat! -- Just use what you know or have heard!

-- COMMENCE!

I voted in the last post in that thread......I don't count? Sad

http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t8200-11-18-15-question-of-the-week

So we have darth maul (who jumps into lightsabers), green arrow (who shoots arrows really well but not much else) and hellboy (who is another all around tough guy). Got to say maul gets taken out first with a rock fist from hellboy or a well placed arrow from green arrow, then hellboy and green arrow are left.....lets see, hellboy did get stabbed with some spear thing in the movie so he can be stabbed or stuck by an arrow presumably. Green arrow though is just a human who is a good archer. Not sure that he has what it takes to take out hellboy. I think ultimately they fight to a draw, hellboy being injured by arrows and green arrow being injured by a big Bertha pistol or rock fist. They both limp away with injuries to fight again another day.

D'oh! Sorry Bryan!

Edited pirat

By the way -- Nice answers! I made the location on Endor to give Arrow and Maul some hiding spots and vantage points (especially Arrow).

Hellboy kinda' just.. trucks his way through anything. Who cares about trees!

Good setting of Endor to try and give Green Arrow the advantage. But this is a Hellboy win surely? I love Darth Maul and it's a tragedy he was killed off so lamely and so early in the PT. Maybe Maul schemes and teams up with Arrow to take Hellboy out, then Green Arrow hides in a tree house and takes out Maul with an arrow volley that pins his cloak to a tree enabling Arrow a final shot at Maul right betweeen the eyes. Arrow wins to the cheering of many Ewoks who soon scarper when Arrow fires burning shafts of pain at them all What a Face

Is is a difficult one. Spiderman becomes somewhat useless since everything is covered in sand so sticking to building with a layer of sand would just be messy and not so helpful, and there really weren't tall structures in convenient locations for him to try to web rope on. Flash also somewhat of a wash because everything is covered in sand, so hard to get traction. So the superheroes are more or less a wash. That leaves chewbacca and bossk. I think that matchup has been made in the comics or expanded universe somewhere. I say chewbacca wins wand then Han flies in with the falcon and eliminates all of the others. Twisted Evil

Agree with Bryan, has to be team Chewie I think. Always let the Wookie win.

I'm with Chewie/Spidey

Spider-Man has beaten Iron Man and held his own against Wolverine. He is tough as nails and even with the sand has an advantage. I say he catches the Flash, Chewy takes Bossk

Location: Cloud City - Inner, outer, carbon-freeze chamber

Weapons: Primary blaster & gadgets -- NO JETPACKS!

What's the catch?: Well, SOMEONE has to continue piloting the Slave I.. but the question is.. who wants it more?

It's a fight to the death and one of the two combatants have to come out on top -- NO TIES!

So Jango who died via jedi knight vs boba who died via blind man and big hole in the ground?

I think I go with Jango on this. Using just experiences from the movies and not the expanded universe stuff, Jango seemed to have more battle experience and was good enough to shoot a little dart into another person from a far away area and get away with it.
We never see Boba Fett actually fight in the movie other than get his blaster cut off and then get hit with a stick and fly into a sail barge and ultimately get eaten. Kind of rookie mistakes.

Boba didn't have much luck did he. Maybe in this fight he would trip over something and fall into the carbon chamber. I'll go for Jango too.

Don't get me wrong Matt, my answer is just based on the movie universe. Once you throw in the expanded universe stuff Boba could possibly hold his own, but still I think Jango is a more seasoned fighter. This fight didn't happen, but one very similar in the Boba and Jodo Kast fight as they both used the same mandalorian armor and had the same weapons.

Don't you guys think that Boba's clumsiness might actually help him win the fight? lol!

A "reversal" of sorts that mirrors his demise in ROTJ?

Nah, Boba trips down the stairs and breaks his neck as he falls into the carbonite chamber. Jango freezes him just for fun. lol!

Return of the Battle of the Week 2016 -- Or.. the Battle of the Week Strikes Back lol! will be restarting early in the new year!


For now, I'm going to have an open vote for one of the two combatants AND the environment  Hopefully there are more than a few responses and we'll have a little fun with it (or the usual TIGers will respond and WE'LL still have fun with it! Laughing )


Environment/ Setting
: Choose ONE


Option A) Jabba's Palace

Option B) Mustafar

Option C) Hoth



Choose ONE of the combatants (I'll be choosing the other pop-culture/ comic book/ movie related combatant, SW related or not):


Option A) Young Obi-Wan Kenobi



Homeworld: Stewjon
Species: Human
Masters: Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn
Apprentices: Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker

Height: 1.81 meters
Mass: 81 kilograms

Background: Taken to the Jedi temple six months after birth, Obi-Wan first started his training as a youngling under Master Yoda, and at a later age with Qui-Gon Jinn who taught him "a strength and nobility in restraint." Kenobi became the first Jedi in a millennium to defeat a Sith Lord when he defeated Darth Maul during the Battle of Naboo.
__________________________________________________________

Option B) Cad Bane



Homeworld: Duro
Species: Duros
Cybernetics: Breathing tubes
Height: 1.85
Mass: 75 kilograms

Affiliation: The highest bidder!  pirat

Background: Bane became one of the leading bounty hunters during the Clone Wars after the death of Jango Fett on Geonosis. Later, he was hired by many of the galaxy's highest bidders, including the Confederacy of Independent Systems and Jabba the Hutt. With dual LL-30 blaster pistols and a habit of skirmishes (and defeats) of Jedis, prison breaks and kidnapping force sensitive children -- he's not someone you want to run into!
__________________________________________________________

Option C) Quinlan Vos



Homeworld: Kiffu
Species: Human/Kiffar
Height: 1.91 meters
Affiliations: Jedi Order, Galactic Republic, Sith
Masters: Tholme (Jedi), Darth Tyranus (Sith)
Apprentices: Aayla Secura (Jedi)
Location: Unknown (?)

Background: Vos hailed from the planet Kiffu and became a member of the Jedi Order, where he developed into a maverick Jedi who garnered a reputation for bending the rules. He was renowned for his ability to perceive the memories of other beings by touching objects that those beings had come into contact with. Vos, an expert tracker as a result of his abilities, often took missions that dealt with the criminal underworld.

What is the third guys name? The first is young obi wan, the second is cad bane (that's right isn't it?) but the third I have no idea.

As far as the location, jabbas palace for sure is my vote on that.

Cad Bane, correct. Most feared Bounty Hunter during the Clone Wars.

The third option is Quinlan Vos, part of the jedi order who was known for bending the rules. Renegade, improv, and has a bit of a savage side.

Taken from the wiki, "He was renowned for his ability to perceive the memories of other beings by touching objects that those beings had come into contact with. Vos, an expert tracker as a result of his abilities, often took missions that dealt with the criminal underworld."

He appeared for a split second in Episode 1: TPM
