I was literally just checking to see if there had ever been a Red Sonja vs Shanna battle, and there hadn't. Until this!

I dunno enough about Xena or Jungle Girl, but I think Red Sonja would beat Shanna.

Seems to me that rounds 3-6 are around approximately the same level of difficulty. I could see them winning or losing any of them at around a 50% likelihood. Miles is way more agile than most of these people, and his webs, venom touch, and invisibility should help him quite a bit. But he is less experienced than most of them.

@owie: well... i think it depends on the different responsability that this young version of Scott carry on his shoulder.

As young, Scott was the older brother of Havok, without partens, so I must endure all the responsabilities of being "Brother/Father/Mother" for him.

After that, he join the Xavier School, and he became the leader of the class and the pupil of the President = More and More Responsabilities...

In his whole life.. no, in nearly two life, Scott had always be the "conscientious type" for is brother and between friends.

Now, for the first time, he is FREE from responsabilities. Nearly ALL of them. He is the youngest aboard the ship, the less experienced, and none of the Starjammers, neither is father, demand that he will be serious, responsible, the best on the field etc...

So I think that this is a "Free" version of Scott, a 16 years old boy that for the first time may be... 16th!!! And he's relaxig, really :) even is cloth and how is drawned, he seem younger... or "Less Aged" :)

I hear you...I just think the transition has been a little quick, and perhaps without attention to that transition. In other words, if the comic itself explicitly said anything like what you just said, that would be fine. Scott could just say, "boy, it's so nice to finally be free of my responsibilities and have someone else to care for me!" But he hasn't, he just kind of went off and had a wacky fun time from the start.

Wow, that would be a fight and a half. There's even some invisibility on both teams.

I really don't know who wins though.

The Kingpin, Ben Linus from Lost, and C.G.B. Spender (aka the Cancer Man/Cigarette-Smoking Man) from X-Files are teleported into a different city in a parallel Earth that none of them has been in before. They don't know anyone there, and have no resources to start off with. They each decide to amass money and power in their new world.

After five years they become aware of each other and decide that the others are a threat.

Who is able to create the greatest shadowy/criminal empire, and use it to destroy the others?

Kingpin
Ben Linus

Cigarette-Smoking Man
