So, Who Would Win?: Aquaman VS. Black Panther


Ahh yes, it's that magical time of the week where I pit two individuals or teams against each other in a battle to see who will be standing after it's all said and done.

Today, it's a war of kings(Not the Marvel "event"from 2009) as I pit Aquaman, the king of Atlantis and the seven seas against the Black Panther, the king of Wakanda.

This ones' going to be a really good one, as both men are really very powerful, with almost unlimited resources and armies at their disposal. But all that won't be used today, as both monarchs go mano e mano to see who's the all-around better king.

Let's quickly go over and compare the stats of these two and go from there, shall we?

Here's Aquaman's:

Atlantean physiology:
  • Superhuman strength, speed, and durability
  • Aquatic physiology
  • Telepathy and mind control extending to aquatic life

And now here's Black Panther's:

  • Trained scientist
  • Superhuman strength, speed, durability, and senses from heart-shaped herb
  • Skilled armed and unarmed combatant
  • Skilled tracker
  • Utilizes vibranium suit and equipment
Now of course initially it would look like Aquaman has the advantage. I mean, he has more powers than BP, is all-around more stronger than BP, and the area he rules over is a lot larger than BP's.

But keep in mind just how resourceful T'Chala is. He's basically like a combination of Batman and Captain America with his quick-thinking and deductive mind, resources, and all-around fighting ability. With the mystical potions he took on the way to taking up the mantle of Black Panther, he's able to wrestle full grown charging rhinos to the ground, and has gone toe-to-toe with the Thing and won!
Then there's his suit, which is woven with Vibrainium, a very durable and strong metal.

Of course Aquaman's no slouch either in the toughness department, since he his skin is just about bullet proof and he gain a lot of his strength from being able to withstand the extreme depths and pressure of the ocean. 

Throw in his mental powers, and it really gets interesting quick.

Who would win and why?

Let me know who you think is the last monarch standing in the comments' section.

Bat-Erotic Asphyxiation

Two in one day? Sure, why not?

Just had to share this I made couple of hours ago:

I think Batman could pull it off actually....

Figures and Photobucket, OH MY!!!

Man, I thought 2015, then last year, and now this year were the best years of the Marvel Legends line, but after seeing some of the previews of figures for 2018, I'm thinking, how are they gonna' top themselves in 2019?

Probably by doing what they're doing this year, and keep getting better, by offering figures fans have been wanting forever and also continuing to offer multiple alternative heads and hands, as well as
solid BAF options.

Coming out next year is a Defenders 4-figure box set, and a bunch of other figures I'll preview here courtesy of marveltoynews.com.


I'm really surprised by the bearded Namor even though I wanted the updated version in his iconic green trunks, so at least that's happening.

That Defenders 4-pack is pretty cool, even though it's mostly repainted reissues, but I really, really want that updated Luke Cage since I didn't want to cough up over $100 for the SDCC Thunderbolts Exclusive box set he was originally in.

 That Jewel-era Jessica Jones though!!!!!

Can't wait for that new Deathlok either. Been wanting one ever since the release of the last one, back in 2005.

That Mysterio looks goods, as does the BAF Lizard figure. Lasher's an interesting addition, but not bad. Wonder if they'll make the rest of the symbiotes.

Also not shown, there will be a Mr. Fantastic and Thing figures coming to Walgreen's' as their exclusives for next year, as well as a re-issued Medusa figure that'll also be Walgreen's' exclusive.

And there's an Avengers Wave coming out next year with a Songbird figure. A Songbird figure!!! Hell's yeah.

Finally, in time for the Deadpool 2 movie, there will be a Deadpool wave with a Cable figure, X-23, and what looks to be an interesting BAF with it being X-Factor's Strong Guy.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.....damn, 2018 looks to be another solid year for the Marvel Legends line.

Finally, I don't know how many people this affects, but probably a lot going by the new terms the image storing site Photobucket has just laid out.

Apparently Photobucket is going to charge Photobucket members about $400 a year to be able to continue uploading and storing their images, since Photobucket has transformed itself into a third-party hosting site now.

Here's a really good article that explains everything:

So basically no more free image storage @ Photobucket.

I guess I better hurry up and go snatch up any of the photos I've saved on there then before the new term goes into effect.....

The Sentry VS. Supreme


Well today's the final "So, Who Would Win?"-themed post for this week. Hope you've been enjoying the match-ups so far.

Today I'm closing out on match up between two Superman iterations, the Sentry and Supreme.

On one hand, you have the Sentry the man with the power of a billion exploding suns, a superman analogue that has a serious dark side and history of mental instability thanks to sharing personality space with his completely evil opposite, the Void.

On the other, is Supreme, he's what you'd imagine an old, bitter, and cantankerous Superman to be like, a real jerkish asshole with no qualms about killing.

Also of note, The sentry is supposed to be REALLY, REALLY strong. So strong he had no problems going toe to toe with the Hulk,

whooped on Thor easily enough,

and even showed no signs of difficulty killing a god, when he killed Ares, the god of war during Siege.

So the Sentry has vast powers thanks to being both the Sentry and the Void.

Supreme, depending on what version you're talking about, is also super-strong and powerful, especially if he's the Alan Moore version. The Alan Moore version of Supreme, is basically written to be on the same scale of powers as the old Silver Age Superman at his peak.
Add in this Supremium stuff, a radioactive mineral that alters reality and that gives Supreme his powers and alter, and you're starting to see just how chaotic and destructive this battle will be.

That being said, let's compare the two using their respective stats shall we?

The Sentry:

Superhuman Strength, Speed & Stamina
• Healing Factor
• Light Manipulation
• Nigh Invulnerability
• Flight
• Enhanced senses
• Matter Transmutation
• Intangibility


  • Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, breath, and vision
  • Molecular adaptation to any threat
  • Flight

As for a scenario in which these two fight, shouldn't be a problem conceiving a confrontation between the two of them.

Chalk it up once again, to the timeless cliche of "Superhero misunderstanding gone bad", and go from there.

As the battle wears on, the Sentry notices he's having more difficulty than usual, putting Supreme down, despite his vast power.
That's when things get ramped up and the Void comes out to play.....


The Sentry



Who wins and why?
Let me know who you think would be the last ubermench standing after this one's all said and done in the comments' section.

That's all for this week, have a good weekend people....
