Rumble Night

So if your group of friends is anything like mine you have the “fight conversation” on a frequent basis. You know what I’m talking about, everyone is sitting around drinking beer and watching Cowboy Bebop when someone says, “Magneto would totally beat Darth Vader in a fight,” and away it goes. However, I decided I don’t want to do a post where I spout out a why Hulk could beat Thing or whatever. So instead we’ll have the battle between two small press heroes. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you:

Migo Vs. Scott Pilgrim

Contestant One

Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Location: El Gato
Occupation: Convenience store employee

Seen In: Random Encounters 1-4 a comic involving numerous film, t.v. and other popular cultures references.

Relationship: Has two girls interested in him (one with a magical bag)

Mission: To harvest the leaves of the Nede tree and fight monsters.

Powers: When kissed his hand triples
in size and gains super strength

Strengths: Generally awesome. Made a working replica of the bozar from Fallout. Do you guys remember Fallout?

Weaknesses: Is pretty much a doofus.

Super Sweet Moment: Check this out.

Contestant Two

Scott Pilgrim

Gender: Male
Age: 23
Location: Toronto, Canada
Occupation: Currently between jobs

Seen In: The various Scott Pilgrim volumes, graphic novels involving numerous film, t.v. and other popular cultures references.

Relationship: Was dating two girls (one with a magical bag)

Mission: To defeat girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends

Powers:“best fighter in the province”

Strengths: Generally awesome. Is in a band called Sex Bob-omb.

Weakness: Is pretty much a doofus.

Super Sweet Moment: I wanted to scan the picture of Scott headbutting someone into oblivion. Unfortunately, I lent my copy of Volume Three to a friend. So I’ll just leave you with this.


That is a tough one. Migo is awesome, his comic is pretty sweet. However, I would say that push come to shove I think Scott Pilgrim would find a way to pull through. What do you have to say?
