Sometimes, when heroes fighting villains gets old, we need a new fight to spice things up. That is why we find ourselves seeing heroes fighting other heroes more and more often in movies. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, we witnessed one enormous fight scene between Iron Man (Hulkbuster) and the Incredible Hulk. In March, we will witness Batman and Superman duke it out in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. And in May, we will watch as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers, face off against each other in Captain America: Civil War.
Of the Avengers, it is sometimes tough to decide which hero could win if they were all fighting as a free-for-all. It is time for us to choose who we think would win.
According to our readers who voted on Round One of this series of articles, the four Avengers who would win their original chosen fights are Tony Stark (Iron Man), Thor, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) and Vision. These four heroes managed to beat out Steve Rogers (Captain America), Clint Barton (Hawkeye), Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), and surprisingly Bruce Banner (Hulk).
Now we move onto Round 2 so as to decide who of the remaining four Avengers would last in a duel between each other. You decide who will win!
1. Tony Stark (Iron Man) vs. Thor
Tony Stark (Iron Man)
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and superhero Tony Stark is almost always ready to put up a fight. When he sets his mind to it (and often times when he gets his own ego involved), the Invincible Iron Man can accomplish any feat, even beating the Hulk in the middle of Africa! He doesn't have any superpowers - he doesn't need them! His powers are money and being crazy smart, and he uses these powers to build new technology to make himself stronger and his superhero alter ego into an unbeatable machine of pure steel.
Stark uses his multiple Iron Man suits to give him abilities of flight, superhuman strength, superhuman reflexes, armor systems, life support, durability and a Heads Up Display (HUD) to warn him of everything going on in his surroundings. In addition, he has repulsors, lasers, missiles, mini-guns and a unibeam which protrudes from the arc reactor on his chest. And let's not forget how many suits he really has. He built an enormous suit that rebuilds itself mid-battle to ward off the Hulk, and in the comics he built a suit to ward off Thor. Throw in the fact that he has the Iron Legion to automatically fight his battles for him, and you may realize that Tony Stark is literally unbeatable. He can control an entire legion of Iron Men who have the same abilities as him and defeat any foe without moving a finger.
After living for over a thousand years, you would think that Thor is the perfect warrior - and you would be right! Thor Odinson, Prince of Asgard, has certainly had at least 10x more than a person's typical share of fighting, having warded off species most humans have never even heard of. He is strong, mighty and always determined to come out of a fight with a victory.
Thor's vast array of Asgardian abilities is his genetic inheritance from his father Odin, including superhuman strength, speed, agility, durability, stability and stamina, in addition to his Asgardian healing factor, weather control and ability to live a long time. But Thor's true weapon is Mjolnir, his hammer that he is able to wield perfectly and with ease in almost any fight. The hammer is considered to be the centerpiece of his abilities, especially when considering that he is generally the only one who can lift it.
Who would win?
2. Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) vs. Vision
Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow)
Since she was born, Natasha was trained to do one thing: kill. She is both a master assassin and a master spy. While most people look to less grotesque meanings in life, Black Widow has one purpose: fighting. She will never back down from a fight and will always stay on her feet until the job is done. It is just the way she was brought up.
Black Widow is a Master Spy, Master Martial Artist, Master Acrobat and Master Assassin. Adding to that list, she is also an Expert Marksman, she can pilot almost any plane or jet, she can hack almost any computer system (potentially even androids?), she can speak countless languages, she is great at interrogation, and she has a vast assortment of weaponry. Sure, she may be a human, but Black Widow can truly be an unstoppable force who can accomplish any task, assuming she has the proper resources (which she always does).
Created by the combined work of Ultron, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Thor, Vision is an android made of Vibranium (the strongest metal on Earth) who is powered by an Infinity Stone (one of the six strongest sources of power in the Universe). He was created with one purpose: good. Vision knows when something is good and needs to be done and will do anything and everything to make sure it is done right - even if it means killing the person who poses the threat.
One of the coolest parts about Vision is his android body, which gives him both enhanced durability and synthetic cell generation to help patch him up almost instantly. He also has density manipulation, which means he can change his density at will to make him heavier or lighter, giving him enhanced strength, levitation and the ability to move through walls. Plus, he can hack into and corrupt any computer systems, and he can shoot a powerful laser beam from the Infinity Stone on his head. This walking, talking, super-powered supercomputer is truly the ultimate match for any foe.
