Welcome back to Monday Match-up. Today we are pairing up heroes and villains of Marvel and DC that are at the top of their game in hand-to-hand combat.

Let’s get ready to rumble!

Heroes

Marvel-Winter Soldier

Winter-Soldier-Bitter-March-banner

James Buchanan ‘Bucky’ Barnes was the childhood friend of Steve Rogers. Steve, of course, became Captain America. Bucky was Cap’s sidekick throughout WWII and they battled Hydra together. Bucky’s death was portrayed differently in the movies, but the comic version is that he and Cap were trying to disarm a drone headed for the states by the Redskull. Bucky kicked Cap off (That’s why he was in the ocean) and died as the drone exploded with him on the plane…

Or so we thought.

Bucky was found by Hydra and they brainwashed him into doing their nefarious deeds. Cap eventually found him and saved him.

Strengths

Metal arm

Proficient in hand-to hand combat

An amazing shot, great with sniper rifles

Trained killer

He’s the ‘man on the wall’

 

Weaknesses

Electric magnetic pulse so you can wipe out his arm

He’s mortal

 

DC-Nightwing

Nightwing-new-52-red

Nightwing is the first robin, Dick Grayson. He evolved into Nightwing as he matured after a fight with Bruce. Dick went on his own to Bludhaven and took on the persona of Nightwing.

 

Strengths

Trained by Batman

Acrobat

Smart

Proficient in hand-to-hand combat

Escrima sticks

 

Weaknesses

He’s not a superhuman

Guilt

Batman…

 

Battle

Rek: I’m choosing Nightwing. His escrima sticks can send out an electrical charge which will render the Winter Soldiers metal arm useless.

Seppin: We’ve already seen that Winter Soldier can fight without that arm. He’s a trained assassin. That’s what makes him so different from Captain America. I’m with Winter Soldier on this one.

Rek: Well, Nightwing is a lot more nimble than Winter Soldier and he could probably get the Winter Soldier in a choke hold, like Cap did in Winter Soldier the movie, and then he’s done.

Seppin: Nightwing is weak. Terrorize a small city and Nightwing will only worry about the people not the threat. He cares too much. He’s also been subdued way more times than Winter Soldier.

Rek: While Nightwing takes care of the people, Batman will come in, and take care of the threat of Winter Soldier. Batman wins…

Seppin: This is a pitiful win. Like a boy crying for his long dead parents.

Rek: Shut up

Seppin: ‘Daddy, help’.

Winner: Winter Soldier over Nightwing except if Batman gets involved.

Seppin: *No asking for back up*

 

Villains

Marvel- Blob

striffle__s_marvel_race___the_blob_by_jakester2008-d5jzsdh

Fred Dukes was a circus performer and he decided to be bad and do crimes once he realized he was a mutant. He’s a pretty core member of the brotherhood of evil.

 

Strengths

His enormous size

Physical strength

Nearly invulnerable

 

Weaknesses

His enormous size, not that agile

Stupid

 

DC-Bane

1316a

No one knows Bane’s real name. His early origin is a mystery. He’s a mercenary who was sent to kill Batman. Bane is very smart. He found out Batman’s identity and attacked. He broke Batman’s back and he left him to die. Batman came back and forced him to take too much venom which caused Bane to forget everything.

 

Strengths

Immense strength

Smart

He’s a Luchador…he fights to survive

 

Weaknesses

Too much venom

Batman

 

Battle

Seppin: Bane’s going to punch a hole through that Blob, mate.

Rek: Good Luck. Blob would suffocate Bane under his sheer mass.

Seppin: Not without hurting himself.

Rek: He can take a few punches.

Seppin: He can take a couple punches to the head then he’s done. Bane can be larger.

Rek: Blob is huge. Whatever. Bane wins. Done.

Winner- Bane

 

~Rek

~Seppin

  1. I agree with the above comment.

    Although for the last battle, it would be pretty close. Bane would still reign superior but he’d definitely have some trouble putting down Blob.

    • I’m glad you agree with our grandmother, Jeffery Pumpkin.
      Yes, Bane would have major difficulty taking on the Blob, but he’s just so much smarter that we think he would defeat him after a pretty epic battle.
