So Who Would Win?: Dexter Vs. Arrow


Call me crazy, but I figured I'd mess around with the formula a bit and go with an unusual match up of Cable TV vigilantes.

First up is the killer of serial killers, hailing from sunny Miami, Florida,


If you watched his series on Showtime, you know his deal. He's a serial killer that hunts and kills other serial killers. And he's pretty damn good at it too.

Next up is Arrow, or as we know him the Green Arrow.

Despite the stupid decision by the CW network or maybe even the creators themselves, to add the "Green" to his name, he does his best, along with his support team. Team Arrow, to help patrol and clean up the streets of Starling City(Soon to be re-named Star City I believe by this season's end).

In this admittedly unlikely scenario, I'm thinking either Dexter is on the trail of his latest victim, who he tracks to Starling City, or Arrow finds himself hunting Dexter. Either way, I'm curious what you guys think the outcome will be.

Sure Ollie seems like a lock, but Dexter's a sneaky son of a bitch. What he lacks in comparison to Arrow's fighting skills, he may makes up in knowledge of anatomy and  playing psychological/mind games. And again, Dexter's sneaky. He loves to stalk then go up behind his prey and knock 'em out by injecting them with his own blend of knockout juice.





Who Wins and Why?

Let me know what you think people. Again the victor may seem incredibly obvious, but shit man, can you imagine the actual confrontation between those two?

Dexter either having Arrow tied down, asking him questions about being a vigilante with a Robin Hood fetish, or Arrow telling Dexter he's failed his own city.

I can see it all now.....

DEXTER would have that CW panzy ass wrapped in plastic before he could pull the first arrow out of his quiver. END OF FUCKEN STORY!

Ha ha, don't hold back man. I don't think it'll be that one-sided Shlomo. C'mon. Dexter's best possible chance for me, would be a carefully planned sneak attack, say after a fight or before. Totally catching him by surprise.

You're telling me a highly trained(Deathstroke, Shado,Amanda Waller, etc.) would easily be taken in combat? I wouldn't overestimate Arrow, just as I also wouldn't underestimate Dexter.

Shlomo Ben Hungstien said...

well anyways who gives a shit about Arrow either way did you catch SOA this week? that was fucken wicked!

Dale Bagwell said...

Yes I did, and damn, It's about time though since there's, only what? 4 episodes left. Jax finally finding out the truth about what his mom did(there was plenty doubt he'd ever know), and from Abel(as many predicted he'd tell Jax)...oh yeah. Shit just got real! DAMN REAL! Can't wait for tuesday man.

@Shlomo -Lots of people give a fuck about colorless Arrow; because it's only been getting better and better. And The Flash is a hit! And if all goes well- soon: FIRESTORM! It's a great time to be a true comic-book geek... (You know- and not the angry, cynical kind.)

@Dale- Did you see the end of last Flash? I don't want to spell it out- in case you haven't seen it yet- but OH. MY. GOD. They are going to go there. Also- a reference to Nobody's Favorite Superhero: Captain Atom??? I almost fainted.

The King of Thessaly said...

Oh, and ummmmm- Arrow wins? I don't know, I have no interest in Dexter, never bothered to watch it, so......
I'm a strictly comic, science-fiction, and horror guy.

Shlomo Ben Hungstien said...

all CW shows can lick my sweaty nut sack. Dexter, Walter White from Breaking Bad and any body from Sons of Anarchy would fucken destroy any of the SnM leather clad pussies from the CW. I'm talkin getting em in a choke hold and pulling their eyes out of their head and cutting their fingers off before putting a bullet in their brain. there go all your who would win scenarios.

Dale Bagwell said...

@King: Totally agree with you. CW's ratings prove how popular Arrow is. This season's debut netted more viewers than the first two.

No I didn't, but I plan on catching up. Good to see your boy's getting represented;)

@Shlomo: I do love my Walter White, but even I have to concede he wouldn't stand a chance against Ollie. Don't let that CW hate blind ya' buddy.

The King of Thessaly said...

-Shlomo is such a curmudgeon.

Dale- wait until you see that ending. So fucking awesome.

Man, maybe in 3 years time we'll have a live-action Captain Atom/Firestorm POWER HOUR!
My head would explode.

Shlomo Ben Hungstien said...

sorry guys, don't mean to be such a curmudgeon douche bag but there's just a few things that will get me going on a tangent such as steve ditko's work in the 80s and 90s and CW superhero shows.

The King of Thessaly said...

Hahaha! -It's funny because you hate things that are awesome.

Hey- no one said "douche-bag"!

Dale Bagwell said...

@Shlomo: It's cool man. But I swear, Arrow's pretty damn good, especially this season. Hell this week Captain Boomerang shows up at the end.

I'm catching up now King. Very interested to see the crossover fight between Ollie and Barry.

A Firestorm/Captain Atom power hour....hmmmm. Probably more like a Firestorm/Flash hour. I don't see the good captain carrying his own show just yet.

The King of Thessaly said...

But it could be Nobody's Favorite TV Show!

YES- Captain Boomerang!!! Hahaha- his hair. And Cupid was FANTASTIC! I don't know if it's because she's a newer character or what- but she translated SO well to television. LOVED her.
And Palmer looking at the suit?
I totally did not see that coming with the mine having pieces of Dwarf Star in it. SO PERFECT!

Dale Bagwell said...

@King: Cupid was alright. Cute, and easily set-up to come back later. I wasn't sure about the ending though since it seemed very vague. When he escaped from the train tracks, did he let her go or turn her in?
Probably just let her go I guess. And how stupid was it of her to kill off her version of Felicity? The dude all but revealed Ollie's identity. No one else other than Deathstroke figured out Ollie's secret base. Ollie's damn lucky, she didn't pursue it further, although she's still alive, and knows Verdiant's important to Ollie, so....

The King of Thessaly said...

No, he said he captured her- turned her in to Waller... She's on The Squad now!
And she killed that guy-licity because... she's bat-shit insane. They could have pushed it a lot further, but the scene with the cupcake was pretty great in showing her mindset.

Dale Bagwell said...

@King: I never read her comic appearances, so I didn't have much of an opinion on her other than hoping she was decent. And she is. She's got potential, as the Huntress before her did, so I hope she lasts.

I thought the part where Ollie breaks the heart open to reveal the coordinates was cool. Who would've really thought to do that one the first try? Not me mack, not me.
