So Who Would win? :Daredevil VS. Bronze Tiger


So I was re-reading Kevin Smith's awesome run on Daredevil, and I gotta' say it was really, really good. Seriously, if you guys haven't checked it out yet, go do it. Smith shows off why he excels at handling the more down to earth, street-level heroes, and DD is no exception. Now I won't give away the surprise villain of the Guardian Devil story-arc(even though you can Google it) but if you read the whole thing and put the clues together, you might be able to guess who it is.

So with DD fresh in my head, I decided to put this little contest together.

So here's the quick rundown on our contestants:


Other than his radioactive-enhanced senses, minus sight, DD is just a regular, albeit highly-trained guy in a world of superheroes and super-villains.

He's trained in numerous disciplines of martial arts like Ninja, Kick-boxing, regular boxing, and other various forms of martial arts.

Bronze Tiger:

Just a regular, but also highly-trained fighter himself, the Bronze Tiger is one of the DCU's premier martial artists/fighters around, even besting the legendary Batman himself.

In other words, a very select few can even hope to compete or put up a decent fight when going against BT.

So, who would win in a fight between the two?

As usual, write in who you'd see win in the comments section of this post.

Personally I'm not 100% sure; on one hand Daredevil's heightened senses can help him dodge/block a good number of hits BT can dish out, but that'll only work for so long as eventually BT will find an opening and score some good hits.

BT has his own degree of heightened senses due to his training with multiple masters and also when he wears his tiger mask, he achieves a very zen-like killer focus.

So, let the speculation commence.....

Finally, just in case you were wondering, The Authority won their fight against the Criminal Syndicate of Amerika in an overwhelming landslide of 4-0. Yeah, I figured the Authority would win anyways due to superior numbers and firepower, but I'm sure they'll at least put up a decent fight for a bit.

And that's me for this week.
Have a good weekend people......

You know who I'm throwing all my chips in with but I do want to hear what the comic book world has to say on this one. I'll be checking back as the fight card comes in.

This would be a Helluva fight

@Omega: Brother, I'd be damn surprised if you didn't root for BT;)

But yeah, I'm curious to see what everyone else has to say about this. I'm kinda' on the fence myself, but probably I have to give up to BT as well. I he can beat Batman, than he damn sure can beat ol' Hornhead.

Dale Bagwell said...

If he can beat ol' Hornhead I meant to type.

Randomnerd said...

@OA1, I KNEW you were going to say that. :)

It's a very close call, mostly because of Daredevil's heightened senses, and I'd almost need the particulars of the terrain and environment to make a final call. That being said, in a generic forum, I'd half to give a slight edge to BT. Cause really, he'd fight just a bit more dirty than DD.
Of course, then BT would have Elektra on his ass. And the Black Widow.
I really don't think he wants both of them after him at once.

Tiger OA1 said...

Let's think about that one for a minute ____ Electra and the Black Widow. I think he'd take that beating two or three times a week with gladness :)

And your girl Black Widow is doing her thing in Secret Avengers. The book is good stuff.

I'm having to stick with Daredevil. Sure he's all quick reflexes, agility and radar sense that can go toe to toe with the BT, but at the same point his dad was a heavyweight boxer. it's a small thing but I think a lot of times it gets overlooked Matt as a kid watched and learned how to duck weave and punch. It's that head start I think would give Mat the slimmest of victories.

We all know they'd team up against Bullseye in the end anyways.

Shlomo Ben Hungstien said...

Goddamnit this match up is like a game of tic-tac-toe it's too evenly matched. i gotta sleep on this one.

Tiger OA1 said...

@Dan: the Team up would be for certain. And it would be so Dope!

Dale Bagwell said...

Don't worry folks, I didn't forget about this little match up.

It seems it's 2-1, so I'll make it an even tie, and root for BT. It'd be truly one hell of a fight regardless of the outcome that's for sure.

Randomnerd does have a point about the boxing training, but I'm sure Ben probably has some or the same as well, so I'm giving it to BT on this one.

Thx for offering your suggestions and comments guys. It's all very appreciated.
