  1. The tally so far... Batroc 2 - Snake Eyes 2 Jackie Chan 2 - Richard Dragon 2
  2. He fought really well in season 1, especially against the Shadow-khan warriors. In later seasons he get shown up a lot (usually for comic effect.) Tohru, Hak Foo, Uncle, Jade, and the even the Dark Hand Enforcers all came across as better at one time or another. It kind of irritated me that they liked to do this so much.
  3. I've seen three episodes so far and it looks like the sport uses really basic attacks. It's a lot more about strategy than power. That could make things hard for Toph and definitely Zuko. I don't think a virtuoso attack from any o fthe players is going to stand up to good teamwork form the other side. Team Avatar (with the exception of Katara) aren't great team players. It's interesting. The contrast between the deep stances of the traditional bending styles and the more fluid on-your-toes of pro-bending reminds me a lot of Bruce Lee talking about the rigidity of traditional kung fu.
  4. Callisto seems to be AWOL, which could mean I don't get to finish my current arc:( ...not that it was likely I was going to finish it anyway. I will give away a little. The Prowler was going to come into things pretty soon. I was looking for a way to bring back Man Mountain Marko and Azrael. I was definitely going to use the Russian. I wanted to use the Cavalier ("Blades" one of my top three favorite Batman stories of all time) and... Batman was going to form an "Outsiders" team using DC, Marvel, and Gargoyles characters.
  5. This is a tournament for martial arts masters, comics and western cartoons only. There are no non-human contestants and no super powers or weapons are allowed.

In this group, Batroc defeated Lin Sun of the Sons of the Tiger (it was a tie and I'm casting a tiebreaker vote), Snake Eyes defeated Zaran, the Weapons Master, Jackie Chan defeated Tsukuri, and Richard Dragon defeated Elektra. Who will win each of these matches? 7. Batroc vs. Snake Eyes Batroc the Leaper is a master of the martial art of La Savate and a skilled fighter who has fought Captain America, Iron Fist and many others.

  8. This is a tournament for martial arts masters, comics and western cartoons only. There are no non-human contestants and no super powers or weapons are allowed. This is a contest of pure hand to hand skills in a dirt pit 20' deep and 50' across. The tournament is single elimination and began with 32 contestants. Now it continues to round 2 with half the contestants eliminated. In Group A, Hak Foo defeated Bob Diamond, Asano Nitobe defeated Constantine Drakon, Kairi Tananga defeated Tiger Claw, and Black Canary defeated Rufus "Super Midnight" Carter. Who will win each of these matches? 1. Hak Foo vs. Asano Nitobe Hak Foo is an enforcer for the Dark Hand criminal organization and possibly Jackie Chan's most skilled non-super foe. Asano Nitobe is the legendary ninja master who trained Manhunter (Paul Kirk) in the martial arts. Despite his age, he was still more than a match for his pupil or any of his clones. 2. Kairi Tanaga vs. Black Canary Kairi is a student of Yoru Sensei, who also taught Kyodai Ken and Bruce Wayne. Kairi became Yoru Sensei's top student. Many years later, Kairi instructed Wayne's successor, Terry McGuinness, in the martial arts. Black Canary needs no introduction. for the purposes of this fight, she cannot use her canary cry.
  9. It's be fun to do a series of Bending (Avatar) vs. Alchemy (Full Metal Alchemist) matches.
  10. Superman is weakened enough by the kryptonite that I don't think he'll be able to do this easily. I do think he saves the world (he is Superman, after all) but I don't know if he can survive. Between the power of the bomb and the green k induced weakness he could easily die. My guess is that the other heroes will see the flash in the sky, too far to hurt the earth but still awesome. They will not see Superman again after the blast and many will say that he died. Others will say that he did not die, that his weakened body fell into a death-like trance, as happened once before. A legend will grow up that this great hero will rise again when the world needs him most. And perhaps it will be true.
  11. Just saw the first episode. Korra's good; aggressive and versatile. She took care of the Triad benders with very little effort. I'd guess she'd give any of the benders on the other team a rough time. I haven't seen her teammates yet.
  12. Brotherhood wins. This group of Mutants has powers that play right to the U-Foes' weaknesses. Magneto will be able to destroy Ironclad or X-Ray directly. Quicksilver can disperse Vapor by running around her and generating powerful winds. Vector will be the hardest to deal with but Juggernaut can't be harmed or deflected by his powers.
  13. I won't get to do a lot of mythology matches Or a Fu Manchu vs. Ra's al Ghul arc Or any matches using Fatman, the Human Flying Saucer
  14. Thanks! And yes, i'm cheating a little with the Royal Flush Gang. They are the versions from Batman Beyond because the Justice League versions were too powerful for the arc.
  15. Just to play devil's advocate for a moment. In this set up Black Widow has no reason to try to kill Batman. Her goal is to get away and report to SHIELD.

Midnight is the other man who Shang Chi claims as an equal. The two were raised as foster brothers and trained side by side for about 15 years.

Rufus "Super Midnight" Carter is a kickboxing champion and CIA agent who acted as Shang Chi's ally on several occasions. Carter is missing his left eye but has trained himself to compensate.
  20. Boromir's only advantage I can think of here is brute strength. He might do okay in a wrestling match with Aragorn, but that won't work with swords.
