Fantasy Mashup! Star Wars vs. Marvel

Good evening folks! Today is Friday and usually I would be typing up a post for “Friday at the Movies” but instead I thought I would share something fun and…dorky. Yes, this is going to get a little dorky. If you dig comics, video games, Anime, science fiction, etc. then you will dig this post a lot. If not, you might get a kick out of it either way. As you can see from the title this has to do with Star Wars and Marvel. If you don’t know what Star Wars and Marvel are then in the words of Sheldon,

“For shame!”

If you don’t know who Sheldon is then a second “For Shame” on you and you should be watching The Big Bang Theory. Now, between my family and I we began an off the wall discussion where we were pitting cartoon characters and such against each other in a battle to the death. We were sitting at the dinner table, having a normal conversation and out of no where my son and I jumped into the land of dorks and geeks, which is fine because we’re awesome! We started out with a match where Team Dragonball Z would fight against Team Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or TMNT for short. It sounds dumb but it was fun and interesting to hear my now 8 year old dig deep and explain why Team Dragonball Z would win. We got so into it that we began a tournament of champions.

We had Team Dragonball Z go up against the Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, The Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, and many others. Finally we came up with Team Dragonball Z vs. Team Star Wars. There was no doubt in our minds that Team Star Wars would destroy the other team but who would be strong enough to take them on? So after many considerations and several helpings of whatever we were eating that night, my son Logan, wife Rebecca, and I came up with the Ultimate Fantasy Mashup. We decided to pit Team Star Wars against Team Marvel. We decided that each team would have four fighters and that Team Star Wars would consist of Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and yes…Darth Vader. Team Marvel would include, Cyclops, Wolverine, Professor X, and Magneto.

I told you it was going to get dorky didn’t I? Well thats nothing! Earlier this month when I was in Florida, my siblings, son and I talked this out in depth and at a Bob Evans. There were some business type gentlemen sitting next to us trying to have a discussion and here we are all hopped up on caffeine and talking about who would win. It was pretty funny but in reference to this battle here’s where your thoughts come in. Who would come out victorious in this ultimate battle to the death? There are many factors here in who would reign supreme. I mean, you have the power of the Force vs. the power of Mutants. I’m curious to read what everyone thinks and your take on the battle. In the end I believe that the two left standing would be Darth Vader and Magneto. It’s hard for me to choose who would win because I like them both but I want to know what you think. Star Wars or Marvel?
