Alright, let’s rumble!

Rek: I mean it has to be Swamp Thing. He can speak and he has regenerative powers. He can travel through the swamp. Groot is pretty good, but I’m going with Swamp Thing.

Seppin: I also am going with Swamp Thing. Mostly because he has the power over the green.

Rek: Plus he has a connection to John Constantine.

Seppin: Constantine basically owns Swamp Thing.

 

Winner: Swamp Thing

Let’s fight!

Seppin: I’m going with Doc Oc on this one. He has four robotic extra arms and he’s way smarter than Black Spider.

Rek: I’m choosing Black Spider because he always gets the job done and clearly Doc Oc is pathetic since he is a Spiderman villain.

Seppin: Says the Spiderman wannabe… Doc Oc would clearly win, since he was once Spiderman.

Rek: Doc OC would get destroyed. Black Spider would plant a bomb on his back and he would get blown into pieces just like his career. Black Spider would shoot him…like Uncle Ben.

Seppin: I still don’t see how he could beat Spiderman, with Doc Oc’s intelligence.

 

Winner: Ladies and gentlemen, we have a Draw!

Rek: There will be a rematch…

 

See ya!

One thought on “Monday Match-Up

  1. Sorry Seppin, I’m siding with Rek here. Doc Oc would be annihilated. Just because he has a few extra limbs doesn’t mean he could stand a chance in a battle against the highly skilled Black Spider.
