i think the question could edge nightwing

#3 Posted by boschePG (2340 posts) - - Show Bio

we talking Vic Sage or Montoya?

#4 Posted by boschePG (2340 posts) - - Show Bio

If its Vic Sage, Im going to say he wins. People I think will side with Nightwing, but when you say no prep I already assume Vic would have already had contingencies in place since he knows Bats and family. So it basically comes down to Nightwing with no prep while Vic always gets prep in character

@THORSON: @boschePG: Does the Question have any good H2H skills or feats

#6 Posted by boschePG (2340 posts) - - Show Bio

He was trained by Richard Dragon.

Question doesn't have the h2h feats to compete with Nightwing, and even if he has contingencies set up, he can't really do anything gamechanging without prep time and only standard gear. He might be able to win using illusions and the like, but I'm not sure those are intended to be part of the battle here.

Since there aren't any real showings of skill for the Question besides some unknown level of training from Richie D. I cannot say he wins, Dick is still gonna be able to dance around him and land the blows where they count.

Will Vic's training with Richard and in character knowledge of the batfamily give him the edge he needs....that is THE QUESTION!!!

No prep, nightwing wins.

For Vic not to have some form of prep you might as well give him amnesia in the stipulations,,the question does nothing but prep, that's his milieux by taking away his knowledge you handicap him,,honestly he's not the question with out his answers

I will have to concur with Bane of Sith. Its in character for Question to have prep. It basically means Nightwing has no prep. Random encounter just means Nightwing has chance to not make Question use it. Its like the time he met Superman at random. Oh dude, you have a lead lining in your mask.

Question says to Nightwing about a conspiracy with logical reasoning and as Nightwing ponders on this, Question sucker punches him and wins. :P

with no prep ill lean towards nightwing. Question could win with prep imo

#22 Edited by RitchieB (221 posts) - - Show Bio

Nightwing is just so fast and if its a random encounter Nightwing will lay into him before the ? could use any of his prep. psychological warfare wont work on Nightwing he is used to fighting the joker. Plus Nightwing has been taught by some of the best fighters on the planet like Batman and Richard Dragon plus Nightwing has his utility belt. not to mention Nightwing has a rebreather that can stop any of the questions illusions because the question uses gas to create them, which wont work on a re-breather

Nightwing due to superior skills and equipment. If The Question had prep he would win.

Question's skill:

Acrobatics: Although not quite on par with people like Nightwing, he has shown to be a proficient acrobat, and has used this skill to survive a fatal fall by rebounding off building sides and somersaulting to create more drag. He, like many other non-powered vigilantes, can get around by jumping from rooftop to rooftop.

Genius-Level Intellect: The Question possesses genius intelligence and has an extremely unpredictable way of thinking. He can make a weapon out of common objects and often uses his mind to win fights.

Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced): Easily capable of incapacitating large groups of criminals and has knocked out trained policemen and soldiers with minimal effort. Vic has shown enough skill to take down two vicious attack-dogs and their highly-trained owner spontaneously, one after the other.

Indomitable Will: His training and lifestyle demanded much determination, and he was rarely known to give up or surrender especially in physical confrontations.

Interrogation: His opponents often fear him due to the (arguably true) rumors of his insanity and ruthless tactics.

Intimidation: He has on many occasions frightened criminals into giving him information he wants, and sometimes resorts to methods that many heroes shy from, like threatening a killer with a chainsaw.

Investigation: Said to be the second greatest detective after Batman. One of many, he has a superior inquisitive mind and has years of experience as an investigative reporter as well as his life as The Question.

Journalism: Victor, before becoming the Question, was a TV investigative journalist. He had his own show and appeared on local news which sought out conspiracy theories, local crime rings and other violent or mysterious news. His Journalistic techniques were what drove him to become the Question.

Dragon Style Kung-Fu: He was trained by Richard Dragon in Kung-Fu and had exceptional martial arts skills.

Philosophy: A self-proclaimed philosopher, Vic Sage has spent years surviving and understanding in the modern to post-modern world of big city life. He understands the functions of the people within the city and even the city itself on a deeper level.

Shamanism: During a particularly tough time in Hub City, the Question sought out to learn shamanistic techniques which applied to his city. He used these skills and techniques to "feel" the city and better understand it.

Immortality: After being cursed by the sorcerers of the rock of eternity, the Question has lived for many centuries without aging.
