Last week, we had a battle between two powerhouses that could level a town as countless punches are thrown. This week, we're going for precision over power as a highly trained and deadly ninja takes on Wolverine's genetic twin. Yes, X-23 is quite skilled in her own right, but it can be disputed Snake Eyes has a fair edge in that regard and seeing as Laura's bones (claws aside, of course) don't have adamantium lacing, an incapacitation is certainly a possible outcome. Meanwhile, X-23's healing factor is something Snake Eyes is immediately unaware of and this means she can endure strikes which would be lethal to countless others. Regardless of who's left standing, this is sure to be a very entertaining battle between two very talented and deadly characters.
Comic Vine Battle of the Week Rules
- Combatants are in character.
- This is a random encounter.
- They're fighting in a generic downtown city setting. It's unpopulated and at night. Assume they start roughly 50 feet apart and visible.
- Both characters have standard gear.
- Incapacitation, knockout or death all count as elimination.
Voting will remain open until this Friday morning (ET) and a new article will go on the homepage shortly after. Please keep in mind voting remains open for 5 days so you can research characters and read the debates presented for both sides. I know it's easy to vote for the character you like more, but please try to have adequate information on both characters before casting your vote.
Friday's update will include one Viner's argument for the winning character (only posts in the poll thread will be considered and it can't be a scan fest, people), the staff's thoughts and if we're extra lucky, thoughts from writers, artists and others in the industry! Viners, it's understandable that debates over "who would win?" can get heated, but please try to keep the conversations informative and not personal.
