So, Who Would Win?: Nick Fury VS. Cobra Commander

TGIF!!!!!

For this week's edition of So, Who Would Win?, I'm taking a page out of an old issue of Wizard magazine and setting up this fantasy fight between Nick Fury and Cobra Commander.

Y'up, good ol' classic Nick Fury and the leader of the ruthless, terrorist organization bent on world domination Cobra, Cobra Commander.

About more than 10 years ago, Wizard magazine and artist Derrick Robertson (New Warriors, Transmetropolitan, The Boys) themselves set up this particular scenario, with Nick storming Cobra headquarters, working and killing his way to meeting up with the main boss, Cobra Commander.

In my scenario, he does the same here too, working his way up to one-on-one confrontation with the head snake, Cobra Commander. Except he's got more obstacles to face, namely Destro and the Baroness. The preceding firefight, wounds Fury quite a bit, but not enough to put him down for the count. Storm Shadow let him pass earlier....for reasons unknown, other than being passive aggressive in seeing CC meet his intended fate.  Major Blood, with a mixed assortment of guardsmen and Cobra foot soldiers, make a last-ditch effort to protect CC at all costs. Finally after what seems like an eternity of trading gunfire, the remaining Cobra personal all close in on a very fatally wounded Fury.

Major Blood mocks Fury.

"An' so this is the legendary Nick Fury eh? I expected him to put up more a fight than this. Guess you never really should met your hero, 'cause they'll disappoint you every time, isn't that right Nicky ol' son?"

Than Cobra Commander starts in on Fury.
 "Pathetic Fury, truly pathetic. You didn't really think you'd just walk in here and take me out did you? Surely your experience with fighting those miserable pretenders, Hydra, would've taught you that. Any last words before I do what so many have longed to do for ages, and dispose of you?"

Fury just starts to laugh.
"Nope, but you  and your goons just uttered your last!"

And with that the whole building complex blows the fuck up, taking everyone and everything with it.
After a couple of minutes, a long figure drops down from a huge, and very familiar large floating facility. It's the SHIELD helicarrier, and the long figure is Nick Fury.

You see kids, in my scenario, Fury played them all, blowing up one of many Nick Fury LMD's. And that's just what happened to Cobra Commander and his "goons."

Fury here's something. Digs and sifts through some burnt rubble, revealing a barely breathing Cobra Commander.

CC: "H-h-h-how?"

Fury: "LMD's, Life-Model Decoys. Never leave home without 'em."

End scene.


So,

Nick Fury











VS.

Cobra Commander










Who Wins and Why?

I know, I know, it's criminally obvious who would win, so tell me how you think Nick does it.
I look forward to seeing what scenarios you guys dream up.

good match up but Cobra commander was never that much of a hands on kind of opponent i think a Nick Fury vs Destro would be more interesting Destro has both brains and brawn.

. . . oh and by the way Dale i'm glad you recognized that new Micronauts box art for being the 80s retro awesomeness that it is.

Dale Bagwell said...

Oh I definitely agree. Hell Serpentor, Croc Master, Major Blood, Tamox and Xamot, Zartan, FUCKING ZARTAN!!!!!

But CC's the main draw, so.....

Hard not too man. And you said that's recently produced retro art? Love it.
