Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Not sure what to think of the designs based on this. Not wowing me yet, but neither did any of the other Star Wars animation, and I ended up loving those.

Here's hoping this series gets me to like the Sequel Era. Not the movies, I mean the just-OT-again setting.

 

(although it took me a looooong while to really appreciate CW and Rebels, and this series is gonna start off with me asking "but what about that cliffhanger?"; I'm fine with waiting but for the love of god don't pull a "did I ever tell you about how Zuko found his mother?")

Hate that cel shading.

Looks ultra generic content wise. But I'm sure I'll be chastised for thinking that because a certain someone will insist their kids will love it...

Coupled with the character designs it looks like someone wanted hand-drawn animation, but the producers insisted on CGI for Reasons, and didn't tell the directors.

Like it's torn between stiff CG and traditional Western-style squash-and-stretch.

Here's the thing about Cell shading and Star Wars. Cell shading by its very nature makes everything bright and colorful, Star Wars is by nature a very dirty and dingy Universe. 

 

To me it doesn't really gel with the world.

Ok, having watched the trailer, I can say I am NOT impressed, the style does not fit the Star Wars Universe, it looks like it belongs more to Ironman Armoured Adventures, its to bright and the animation simply doesn't fit into the Star Wars Universe, I can't see this lasting very long, on top of the fact its set before Force Awakens which doesn't give me any real hope for a good story. Personally, I rather they go and follow some Bounty Hunters than some rookie pilot who seems in the trailer get asigned to figure out who is apart of the First Order and who not!

On the first watch the cell shaded animation style did not work great for me. On subsequent watches (on TV instead of a tiny phone) I got used to it and I'm mostly ok with it. Although it's not as nice and pretty as Rebels was at the end. Hopefully it'll grow visually as it goes on.

Content wise it looks good. Ideally after Luke and Anakin, and Rowan and Ezra I would have prefered a cartoon with someone who was not a teenage human male as the main character, but that disappointment aside it looks like it has potential to be some cool Stars Wars.

-ZacWilliam, definitely gonna be tuning it in and checking it out.

It's ugly, but most CG shows are. It may still attain greatness. 

 

ETA: I mean, is there anyone in the history of Star Wars with a track record as consistent as Dave Filoni?

Im so confused about the extreme tonal change since The Clone Wars series since the same guy is in charge.

Rebels picked up after Ashoka joined. Ill give this a chance at least
