DUN DUN DUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

I don't know anything about Tyrion except for what I read on wikipedia, and based on that alone, with Spider-man's superhuman reflexes, muscular physique and agility, he has Tyrion beat by a long shot.

I think Tyrion takes this. He's just as capable as Picard in taking advantage of Spider-Man's weaknesses. But wait, Picard lost to Spider-Man?

Now I'm torn.

Arya should have put Tyrion out of his impy misery in Round 1...

I think Tyrion has read far more books than Spider-Man, so if the battle is set in modern time, then Tyrion would likely know more about Science than Peter Parker.

(Also, Tyrion is highly skilled at cyvasse (a fictional, chess-like game), so I don't think turning this into a mental challenge favors Spider-Man at all.)

You don't think the man who figured out how to create synthetic web shooters, and was always either top of his class or close to it, and who is always extremely witty in his battles and usually makes good snap decisions.... is going to get out-thunk by a guy from hundreds of years ago who isn't familiar with modern technology? Web shooters, man. Web shooters. Tyrion will be stuck in that sticky gunk and have nowhere to go or turn.

I think they are intellectual equivalents. You might be able to make an argument one way or another, but I don't think you would have a clear winner.

Now, the biggest issue I see is that Spider-Man primarily limits himself to non-lethal means and works alone (the whole secret identity thing). Tyrion isn't a malicious killer, but he has no qualms about using lethal methods if that is what is required for self-preservation. Additionally, he's more than willing to enlist the assistance of others in creative ways if that is what is needed to extract himself from an awkward situation (and Tyrion finds himself in more than a few... "awkward" situations.).

Arya versus Tyrion would have made an epic finale! (Very sad to have that as a Round 1 match).

And as a finale, I think Arya would have won (as she'd have been more experienced from prior battles, giving her a better chance to hone her craft).

I was going to vote for Tyrion until you pointed out that he killed Jet Li.

Dead? No, I think Jet Li ended up taking the Black and now likely commands on the Wall. It was a reasonable compromise, and a far better option than killing Jet Li.

Comment: Wow. IMO Tyrion wins the tie-break based on strength of schedule.

Do I win first voter award?

Also, I'm sticking with Spiderman. Not really that big of a fan, but he'd definitely take Tyrion.
