It's tough to believe we're already on the third Comic Vine Battle of the Week. First, Daredevil knocked out Nightwing and then Deathstroke took down Ultimate Captain America, but now it's time to step up the power levels. Previously, we were dealing with characters who could demolish a street during their fight. Now, we're giving you a battle which could level an entire town as the two characters duke it out. In one corner, we have Marvel's Green Goliath... and in the other, we have the current leader of the Sinestro Corps.
Hulk's strength grows over time and there's no doubt he has the physicals to contend with a Lantern. When speculating over a match for him, Hal or Sinestro were brought up, but I believe any tactical Lantern should eventually take a victory over the brute. What's stopping them from victory through BFR (battlefield removal)? Answer: not much, really. So, I thought Arkillo would be the best opponent in this case. Yes, he does indeed use constructs, but they're often projectiles or melee weapons. He has a tendency to get down and dirty (as seen with Kilowog), and against someone like the Hulk, I have a feeling that could result in a hugely entertaining fight. Will Hulk remain the strongest there is... or will this cosmic threat keep Hulk down for the count?
Comic Vine Battle of the Week Rules
- Combatants are in character.
- This is a totally random encounter. This means neither character has knowledge on the other.
- They're fighting in a generic downtown city setting. It's unpopulated and at night. Assume they start roughly 50 feet apart.
- Both characters have standard gear.
Voting will remain open until this Friday morning (ET) and a new article will go on the homepage shortly after. It'll include one Viner's argument for the winning character (can't be a scan fest, people), the staff's thoughts and if we're extra lucky, thoughts from writers and artists! Viners, it's understandable that debates over "who would win?" can get heated, but please try to keep the conversations informative and not personal.
Feel free to make future match suggestions in the comments below or via Gregg's Twitter page.
