Comic Vine Battle of the Week Rules
- Combatants are in character (this is New 52 Aquaman).
- This is a random encounter.
- They're fighting in our version of Manhattan (this way there's no Baxter Building for a potential advantage but both do indeed recognize where they are). It's unpopulated and at night. Assume they start roughly 20 feet apart and visible in Times Square. This means the Hudson River is about 5 avenues over and the East River is a bit farther away.
- Thing is unarmed and Arthur has his trident.
- Incapacitation, knockout or death all count as elimination.
