I'm apologize in advance for the brevity of this but, with the forum closing Saturday, this is the only way I can get these matches up in time for anyone to comment.


This is part of an arc. The last chapter is at Iron Man vs. The Lexo Skel-suit 5000 and Team Luthor.


This is the wrap up for Silver Sable and Silvermane vs. Warhawk.




The Big Man hired Calypso to use her voodoo magic to control Warhawk and sent him after his rival, Silvermane. The assassin crashed through Silvermane's goons with little difficulty. He confronts Silvermane but the Maggia boss's cyber-armor (created by Lexcorp) allows him to hold Warhawk, for a while.


Sable tried to help her father but realizes that her weapons are of limited use against Warhawk's steel-like body. She uses plastique to blow a hole in the floor, dropping Warhawk and Silvermane into the basement. Once there, she goads Warhawk into attacking her and ducks out of the way. He strikes the house's generator and the electrical jolt stuns long enough for Silvermane to wrap steel cable around him, restraining him.




On Yancy Street, the minyan (see last installment) has become more of a discussion group since two of their number left (Max Loew was called away by Elisa Maza who needed his Golem's help and Rory Regan skipped out to go to a costume party with a girl he likes.


The group is discussing the protection racket the Big Man is running. They had hoped that the Golem, who had recently defeated Dr. Octopus, could protect them. Rabbi Luria had invited Rory, knowing that he controls the Golem. Since Rory is not there, the Rabbi reveals that he knows a cabalistic spell that may help protect them, though it might not work without a full minyan to chant it.


The group decides to go through the chant anyway and mystic energy fills the room. Unfortunately, the Big Man has singled out Rory's father as an example of what will happen to anyone who refuses to pay. The Enforcers arrive at the Rags 'n Tatters shop and destroy it, Fang and Shocker blasting it and Gladiator cutting through support beams. It's only when the shop collapses that the Enforcers realize the minyan was meeting upstairs. They are all shocked and Gladiator feels especially bad for having men who had no choice to fight back.


As the enforcers flee the spot, Rory returns from the party wearing the Ragman costume he had worn. Rabbi Luria tells him his father and several others are inside under some live wires and probably dead. Rory rushes in on the chance they are still alive. When he tries to free them from the wires, the electricity and the cabalistic energy combine to transfer some of the men's memories and abilities to him. He gains his father's compassion and commitment to the neighborhood, the strength of a former circus strongman, the skills of a heavyweight boxer, the training of a retired Mossad agent, the agility of a gymnast from the 1972 Munich Olympics, and the martial arts skills of a krav maga instructor for the IDF. When he comes out of his coma, Rory will become Ragman, the Tatterdemalion of Justice and will use his skills to protect his community.




Also in Manhattan, Hobie Brown in his Prowler costume goes on patrol for the first time. 




Bruce Wayne and Natasha Romanov have a heart to heart and Natasha decided she cannot reveal his secret to SHIELD. A news broadcast announces that the Joker and the Royal Flush Gang have robbed the diamond exchange. Bruce is torn between dealing with the Joker in Manhattan and tracking down the kidnapped Talia in Metropolis. Natasha offers to go to Metropolis and start the search. Bruce thanks her and calls two of Batman's allies: Greg Sanders (Vigilante) and Ted Grant (Wildcat) to help her.


Midnight has been observing this, unseen. After defecting from the League of Assassins, he's decided to offer his services to Batman (Ra's al Ghul always spoke highly of his enemy's integrity.) Midnight doesn't know how to approach Batman and decides to follow him to Manhattan and help him deal with the Royal Flush Gang.




Sabretooth is leading a group of LexCorp thugs into the tunnels under Manhattan to capture any more of Dr. Sevarius' remaining mutates and to round up homeless people for further experiments at the Zoo. He is confronted in the tunnels by Vincent and Red Wolf. He sends his men on, promising to join them after he takes care of the two. 


"You should have learned your lesson last time, redskin," Sabretooth said. "This time I'll make sure you stay dead."


He lunged, only to be blinded by a handfull of powder that Red Wolf tossed in his face.


Vincent charged in then, slashing his claws across Sabretooth's chest. The mutant thrust him away and bared his own claws.


"Not bad, freak," he said, "but my healing factor... Hey! Why ain't I healing?"


"A gift from the Owayodats, monster," the warrior said. "Your healing power is gone."


"Won't make any difference," Creed said, and sprang at his foes.




Vincent is in berserker mode in this fight. While not as strong as Sabretooth, he is probably a little faster and more skilled (I base that assumption on the Beauty and the Beast episode "China Moon" which showcases Vincent's fighting ability against Tong fighters. He has several impressive feats. He ducks back into the fog to avoid one man's weapon, appearing behind the man a moment later showing inhuman stealth and speed. In another scene, Vincent faces one man while another silently appears behind him and throws a shuriken. Somehow sensing the shuriken after it is thrown, Vincent dodges it, allowing it to strike his opponent.)


Red Wolf and Lobo are present and will help Vincent as possible. Since both Vincent and Sabertooth are in berserker mode, Red Wolf is only going to help out out if he is really needed.


Sabretooth is the version seen in the animated X-Men Evolution series. His healing factor has been temporarily neutralized by Red Wolf's magic powder.

Actually, with his healing factor nullified, and with Vincent having back up, sabretooth loses here.
