Friendly Fire Fight Club #26 - 'When Stars DIE!'

"It is I, Bruce Lee, the deadliest man to have ever walked the Earth with the possible exception of John Wayne. The Gong of Conflict has been pounded upon - it is time to FIGHT!"

Image

"On Tuesday, September 21st 2010 BertoneBeatle challenged Venomaniac, who accepted.

"Venomaniac chose, as his champion, star of the Metroid franchise, female bounty hunter Samus Aran!"


Image

"In response, BertoneBeatle chose another famous space bounty hunter - Boba Fett, making his Fight Club debut!"

Image

"With the combatants chosen, George Berryman has informed me that he has selected Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood as tonight's fight venue."

Image

"Sid Grauman's Chinese Theater has been a major Hollywood landmark since its creation in 1927. When it opened its doors, two of Grauman's partners included Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. It still functions as a movie theater today and is known for its movie star handprints all over its grounds. It has also hosted the Academy Awards in the past.

"A Bounty Hunter War! Those are your choices! Who wins? Who loses? You decide. Vote NOW! Take us away, Elvis Presley!"

Quick Note: Sorry it took so long to get this one up. I ran right out of time last week and weekend and meant to have it up before tonight. My bad! Now... FIGHT ON!

Boba Fett is also a master of hand to hand combat as well. He's fought and killed Jedi. He survived the Sarlacc, he'll survive Samus.

This could go either way because she kills alot of crap in Metroid.

Boba Fett has battled Darth Vader and lived to tell the tale. How many people can claim that? Certainly not Medusa...

He also survived THREE TRIPS to the Sarlaac pit!

He led the whole group of Mandolorian Warriors!

They're both renowned bounty hunters in their respective universes, so I wouldn't put either's reputation or skill set above the other's. What breaks the tie for me is that Samus has way more toys. She has a plasma gun, a stronger plasma gun, a fire gun, an ice gun, a gun that shoots missiles, bombs, and a variety of armor. She regularly kills Space Pirates, and Boba Fett isn't far off from that. She also kills powerful aliens who are planetary threats by herself, as well as swarms of lifeforce-sucking parasites and CYBORG PTERODACTYLS. I see no reason why Boba would give her problems when aberrations like Mother Brain, Metroid Prime, and the CYBORG PTERODACTYLS don't.

I voted for Bobba Fett because of my Star Wars bias...sad, but true.

I tell ya. Even when they announced these combatants in the Friendly Fire thread I was already siding with Boba Fett because of an obvious Star Wars bias.

But then when I read what this armored chick actually does and is capable of... sorry Boba but yeah I had to vote for her.

Well that and Bertone talked smack, so... 8)

Have you played a Metroid game? I think Space Pirates are way scarier than Boba Fett when they include among their ranks 20 foot giants



AND CYBORG PTERODACTYLS!!!!!

I'm familiar with Samus. I even read and own some Metroid comics. I like her and I'm not downplaying her abilities. She's quite a character. I just happen to be very familiar with Boba as well.

I'm not voting solely based on my Star Wars fandom. Fett has fought giants and all manner of creatures. If you're only familiar with Fett from the movies then you don't have the full picture of what he's capable of.
