Title: Lopsided fights
Post by: Ditto on December 07, 2017, 05:13:01 AM
This isn’t a versus thread, but more my reaction to waking up for work and seeing a 94 comment thread on Facebook of people arguing Vader versus Magneto, which Jesus Christ.

I’m curious about anyone else seeing fictional fights  so lopsided being discussed outside the walls of battle boards.

My absolutely favorite of all time would be the “Bane vs Juggernaut” thread gamespot or IGN posted around the time of TDKR that was unbelievably in favor of Bane.

Vader vs Magneto is bad enough but I think Juggernaut vs Bane is just crazypants.

People were legitimately convinced Bane was stronger than him.

“Bane broke Batman, he’d break juggernaut” and so on. It was a shitshow.

How easily they forget he steamrolled Logan through a house and crushed an APC by jumping on it. Bane did what...broke some decorative molding when fighting Bruce?

Oh, this was comic versions. It was even worse.

Comicvine had a shit thread Hulk vs Geo-Force. I got banned for that one. Among others like Martian Manhunter vs Thanos and other shit threads. Lopsided. And they always picked the loser.

Hard to match the lopsidedness of Bane vs. Juggernaut. Never saw that thread, but it's hard to believe there wasn't some trolling involved there.

I've been known to post the odd deliberate mismatch myself, in order to expose the wrongheadedness of someone's position in a given topic. So for example, in respose to someone claiming the Silver Surfer and Thanos both had high-level physical super-speed, I once posted a footrace (from London to Paris, or something like that) between the Surfer, Thanos and Quicksilver. I listed four poll options, as follows: A) "Surfer wins", B) "Thanos wins", C) "Quicksilver wins", and D) "WTF? Quicksilver smokes these chumps!". To no surprise whatsoever, option D received more votes than the other three combined.

Neither of these really fit the "Fictional fights/outside of battle boards" framework but what the hell.

First, a way old thread on iirc thesmartmarks where some people actually tried to claim Chyna was as strong/physically stronger than Ken Patera.

Second, the infamous "Superman has a higher asymptote than Odin and would win" thing here a decade ago or whatever.

The odds were heavily stacked against the Orcs on that one.

Well,not saying Geo Force is going to win against Hulk but he should at least able to give him a not so horrible fight.
