For this week's edition of So, Who Would Win?, I'm pitting mutant against mutant, brother against brother, Native American versus Native American, when I force the original Thunderbird, John Proudstar against his younger brother James Proudstar a.k.a. Warpath.
Call it a morbid inclination on my part to see which of the two brothers is the better.
Now ideally, both of them seem to be equals as far as their mutant powers go, seeing as how they both haven enhanced strength (both can lift up two two tons) have enhanced speed, agility, and endurance.
Now here's where the key differences come in; while both have combat training from being an X-Men, and john has military training from his stint as a marine, his younger brother James has the additional benefit of being trained by Cable during his years in that version of X-Force. Also there's his time with Pete Wisdom's X-Force, and Wolverine's black ops incarnation of X-Force, where his killer instincts and training were super-finely honed.
Add in the fact that while older, John doesn't have as many years combat training as a super-hero that his brother James does, and things get even more interesting.
Who wins and why?
Let me know what you think in the comments' section below.
Also, as promised, here's a picture of my Christmas Swag from my family:
-Pop Fumko Surfing Batman '66
-Batman bottle opener and flashlight
-Deadpool movie DVD (not shown)
-DC Comics coloring book(also not shown and damn cool because of all the old JLA covers you get color in)
Plus 100$ in both cash and an Amazon gift card...which I promptly spent on ordering figures and the Old Man Logan trade.
In case you didn't already know, actress Carrie Fisher died recently. She suffered heart complications, and then passed away on December 27th. She was only 60 year old, the same age as my own mother.
What's even sadder, is that her mother, famed actress Debbie Reynolds then had a stroke of her own, and likewise passed away a day later after her daughter Carrie. She was 84.
Goddamn, 2016 has been straight up savage when it comes to celebrity deaths. And there's only two days left....
Tomorrow I'm closing out the year with a quick reflection on my Top Ten favorite action figures of 2016 (here's a hint, they're all Marvel Legends)
So tune in if you care, as we put 2016 to bed on this blog.
