You're running the gauntlet

Ive seen a bunch of "so and so runs the gauntlet" thread and a lot of "YOU vs so and so" thread so i though, why not combine the two? This is my gauntlet, tell me how far you would get? and why? you have a week to prep before each match, your opponents have none, you have you current weight, physique and combat ability. you have access to any weapons or materials that you can gets your hands on in your relative area during that time.

Round 1- Captain Stacy

Trained in Hand to Hand combat, no prep, armed with standard police gear, including a pistol

Round 2- Penguin

Extensive hand to hand combat training, no prep, armed with his umbrella and any other standard weapons

Round 3- Scarecrow

Even more hand to hand combat training, no prep, long arms and legs, armed with his standard weapons and gadgets, minus fear gas

Round 4- Joker

Very experienced hand to hand combatant, no prep, armed with who knows how may knives, and all of his other standard equipment, minus joker gas

Round 4- Lex Luthor

Highly trained hand to hand combatant, no prep, armed with a machete and a revolver

Round 4- Nightwing

Phenomenal hand to hand combatant, the pinnacle of human agility, no prep, armed with all of his standard gear, minus the 10,000 volt tazer

Round 5- Captain America

Super soldier and peak human, immense combat training, no prep, armed with all of his standard gear including his nearly unbreakable shield

Round 6- Batman

Peak human from training, one of the best combatants in the DCU, no prep, armed with all of his standard gear, minus any vehicles

Round 7- Deathstroke

Superhuman, one of the top street-levelers in all comic books, no prep, armed with all standard gear armour and weapons

Which round would you get to? why would you lose? and why would you win any of your matches? I think i would personally stop at Grayson, with one week prep i could put up a decent fight, but he is just too much for me to fight in the end.

I'd stop at the Joker if I'm lucky.

I might, possibly, maybe could perhaps beat George Stacy, except he has a gun. So i die. Every time.

Really? with a full weeks prep you couldn't get your hands on a gun too?

Really? Stalemate Deathstroke? He has full gear, weapons and a healing factor. I don't think anyone here in the Vine can last 5 mins against him.

5 minutes? i think i could last about 30 seconds, if i ate my lucky charms

With a weeks prep I could possibly set up an ambush situation with guns and explosives. But if my initial salvo isn't effective, then I lose handily to everyone on the list.

  1. I die. Horribly. Burning. Screaming. In fire.

@CalebHara: Hey, anime vs comic just became allowed.. there are hundreds of battles to be done.. why are you still putting me in battle threads :(

With a week full of prep, I could make it, if I have my life on the line, and I overcome my dislike to fighting.

I'm considerably good at fighting, but seriously, comics fighters can do a lot of stuff that even black belts can't :p

@PrinceAragorn1: Why not? i don't think anyone has done this and i thought it wild be a cool idea. And yeah, you should be able to hold your own 1v1 with 1 weeks prep and your life on the line.

I live in San Diego, border town between Mexico and the USA, I can get my hands on an effin' tank if need be with all the crap we see around here.

I think I make it up to Batman if I have prep, If the death of Cap showed us anything is that human heroes can be sniped easily.

I was kidding around about the putting me in the battle :) It's a nice idea..

With prep, I'd try to keep my distance and blow them away as soon as possible.. I doubt I could hold myself against someone like cap / bats etc..

#16 Edited by NyghtMare (403 posts) - - Show Bio

With this much prep, I'd booby the trap house a la Home Alone and hide with my Uncle's M4 in the attic. I could probably pick off Penguin and Stacy, since he's an old Marine and taught me the basics on how to shoot, reload, etc and while I admit to being a less than perfect shot, I think I could peg those two.

The Scarecrow haunts my dreams, though, especially the one from Arkham Asylum. He'd just shout "BOO!" and I'd black out.

LOL. Now seriously, I could pass Nightwing, but Captain America would kick me out.

I would be able to buy some guns and I have some knowledge about chemistry, with which I would be able to produce some bombs, grenades and etc. I am very experienced when fighting with nun-chucks and I have trained taekwondo for almost two years. I am also very fast when I want to.

Who knows. I think I stop at 1..2 If I'm lucky.

I have no idea how to fight, but, remember: What defense can be mounted against a foe possessed of a thousand unknown attacks? .

Yep, stalemate. And I know, it's hard for the feable minded to comprehend. Muahah!

I hate Batman. My composure would get clouded, and I'd mess up. I don't hate Deathstroke, so I'd be more attentive and focused.

I make it past Captain Stacey... but only because he's already dead.

  1. I could probably last against Captain Stacy, if I could get a hold of a gun, an assault rifle would be best since I'm not experienced with guns at all.
  2. Same case here, but I would need an assault rifle and it's a 50/50 chance I could beat the Penguin if I kept my distance correctly, his umbrella can do a lot.
  3. Chances are even less, 30/70 chance, if I can create bombs and if I have a couple guns. But it's most likely I will loose.
  4. I doubt I will last this round, but there is still a possibility I will, if Joker spends around talking and fooling around. 15/85 chance here. Most likely I will loose, near certain death.

I'm not going to last any longer than this. =3

To be be out right honest, virtually no one can get past round 4.

1: Get a pistol, shot him in the head. He is a trained officer, so in a direct fight i would go down. I think i could sneak him and give him a headshot.

2: I think i am faster than Cobblepot in the shooting first thing.

3: Molotovs are pretty easy to make(really, you can learn to do it in the Youtube), i think i could same some boobytraps and thrown some Molotovs to distract him, then shoot him.

4: Well, this one is tricky. I think i could talk to him to win some time and lucky shoot him in the head, but i'm pretty sure that he can dodge bullets.

5: I'm getting a head shot here.

6: Nightwing would spank me like if was his job.

7: I would say something like "F*** you, Captain. America sucks.", proceed to get humiliated and then killed by a angry mob.

8: I would try to get his autograph, then he would proceed to flip me his finger, and vanish in the shadows.

9: Headshot by Deathstroke himself. There is a better way to go?

I would die in round 3 I would only get past 1 and 2 because I'm a 3rd degree black belt and I can get a gun if I want one.

Really? I'd think it'd be the other way around. I think I could take Nightwing, though. Just shout a few insults about his dead parents and how circus's are for Arnold's girl men. And then he'd break down crying and I'd deliver a 720 backflip kick to the jaw and he'd be at the mercy of a bone-crunching ground-n-pound session, courtesy of my elbows! I sat in on a Tae Kwon Do class when I was 7, I'm pretty much a trained killer.
