If the Fury starts bullying Popeye and/or his loved ones, he's in trouble. :P

The equipment on his face might make it hard to use his spinach... Of course, he'd probably just replace his oxygen tank with a spinach tank, so scratch that.

The Fury's new plan

Step 1: Get the Spinach
Step 2: Consume the Spinach
Step 3: Profit

Popeye's only chance of winning is if he happens to have a can of spinach in his back pocket.

Pretty sure that's standard equipment for the Sailor man. A can of spinach to Popeye is like guns to the Punisher.

Popeye can always get to his spinach. I'm not sure the Fury has anything in his arsenal that Popeye on spinach couldn't handle.  :mellow:  :P

The fury is able to regenerate from anything Popeye does to it, and it was able to kill every superhuman on Earth in it's own universe.

 

Popeye may be strong, but against the Fury, he's just another yellow brick in the road to victory.

Fan votes and what the actual capabilities are, are two vastly different things.

Wait a second, the Fury is my guy, I shouldn't just be waiting to see how this pans out!

Unless the Spinach gives Popeye more than just super strength, he loses. All he can do is punch the Fury, while the Fury's ability to adapt to his opponents will enable him to come up with a way to defeat Popeye. By becoming immune to or absorbing kinetic energy; by going intangible and just phasing his hand through Popeye's head or by BFRing Popeye. The Fury has the tools to win this. In the cartoons I remember Popeye's spinach boost as only lasting a few minutes anyways, so he could become depowered just as the Fury blasts him.

Actually, spinach gives Popeye whatever skills and abilities he needs to win the day. He's become invulnerable to magic spells, cannon fire, and bombs, he's been able to fly, and he's been able to break nearly every law of physics (though this is also due to toon force). Even Popeye's going to have it tough against a being that's wiped out every superhuman on Marvel Earth, though.

Meh. Its been a very long time since I watched Popeye, and the most I got from it was the message from my grandparents that I should eat my spinach. Any feats that weren't strength related must have got lost.

Aawww ... :(

 

 I probably could've dug up one of Popeye's respect threads, but it may not have made a difference here.
