Professor Xavier convinced Katniss to leave her home at 221B Baker Street. She jumped into the Impala shouting, "Allons-y!" .....

.... to take The Ring down the yellow brick road, all through the black of the 'verse, to Narnia, to shine like a star, while saving the Enterprise from the Six-fingered Slytherin Sith.

WTF is this shiiiiiit!

Spider-man is the new Champion! Darth Vader was the old one!! It's like a trophy for any other competition! You don't pit the old fella against the new, spry up-and-comer!

(that being said, my vote lays in Spider-man. Spider sense just wins over light saber. He can DODGE BULLETS. He basically has pre-cognitive senses. Darth Vader planning to force choke him? He pulls out his little device that lets him breathe.... bam. Spidey wins.)

I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.

Despite my request to see this battle, I have to agree that Darth takes it. I can't see Spiderman inflicting any massive damage on Darth - and he can't jump around avoiding Vader forever. As soon as Darth gets him in his chokehold grip, it's game over.

That said, Luke won against the Emperor by appealing to Vader's heart. Could Spidey throwV ader off with a heartwarming story about Old Uncle Ben?

Hmm I doubt it. I think it was the father-son bond there.

I love Spidey, but I think I gotta give it to Darth. Spider-Man would definitely hold his own for a while, but he'd wear out eventually.

I got the feeling that a lot of people didn't know the character very well.

I really thought I wouldn't have to avoid this thread too given the two fighters, but alas, I guess I will. Bastards.

I got that same felling with Tyrion, despite him getting to the end. He was my fighter, so I had to champion him throughout, but Arya was my second pick to win (and likely would have drawn my vote over Tyrion, had they met somewhere around Round 3 or later). (She was also my alternative to Tyrion, had their been a conflict, and had she not been selected already...)

And having to avoid spoilers also complicated arguments for all Game of Thrones combatants.

While I agree that Vader should easily crush Spider-Man, I suspect Spider-Man's chances rest largely on someone putting forth an argument that "The Force" isn't really as powerful as people make it out to be.

Something like: http://what-if.xkcd.com/3/

Proven recipe to win the Ultimate Battle. Pick a fighter who:

1. Has some special power

2. Wears a full body costume

3. Wears a mask

4. Is an ordinary good person under the mask

5. Something happened at some point in his life to change him to what he is now

6. Comes from a very popular movie everybody has seen.

I'd say #6 really hits the mark here.
