Battle Royal 12

Imagine if twelve Marvel characters were to be in a huge battle where there could only be ONE victor! Putting the "good" and "evil" notion to the side...it's EVERYONE vs. EVERYONE--No alliances! Only ONE can be left standing!

Please choose who you think would win among the twelve Marvel characters in the poll.

Also, if you have time, please leave the reason why you think the character you chose would win in the "comment" section below. This way, we can all see your reasoning in choosing your winner.

Who will be the victor? Only YOU can decide!

The twelve characters that are involved in the Battle Royal 12 are the last twelve characters that have been highlighted on the Marvel Madness blog:

Vindicator, Jane Foster, Dum Dum Dugan, Wallow, Spacker Dave, Union Jack, Dr. Kavita Rao, Riptide, Frigga, Bukcy Barnes, Azazel, and Laufey. (If you have forgotten some of these characters' powers/abilities, go ahead and check out their bios right here on the Marvel Madness blog by clicking on the highlighted names above.)


  1. Ok...first things first: the weak humans are gone. So, that gets rid of Dr. Kavita Rao, Spacker Dave, and Jane Foster. Of the 4 humans without powers (Union Jack, Dum Dum Dugan, Bucky Barnes, and Vindicator), I believe Vindicator would win because she has a flying battle suit that can manipulate geothermal energy (aka create lava!). That would take out the rest. The lava trick would sure take out Laufey as well due to the Frost Giants' weakness to heat.

    This leaves only 5 left. Wallow could induce fear in his enemies; however, with the powers of so many others...I believe he would eventually be overcome. Now, Riptides steel-puncturing bone shurikens would eventually take care of Vindicator and her battle-suit.

    This leaves the final 3: Azazel, Frigga, and Riptide. Riptides shurikens could do some serious damage Frigga. Even though Frigga can regenerate her wounds, as a Asgardian, she can't regenerate organs. And I'm sure those shurikens would eventually make their way to an organ or two in Frigga's body. Of course, Frigga's super strength would have definitely taken out others earlier in the battle before she fell to Riptide.

    This leaves our final 2: Riptide and Azazel. This would be a tough battle. Azazel can teleport all over, but Riptide can continually spin and shoot bone shurikens all day long. In the end, however, I think Azazel would be sly enough to teleport all around the battle field and use his paralyzing energy to stun Riptide to take him out. And even if he wasn't allowed to use those energies (which are used when he is in his dimension), he could still teleport enough around that eventually he would catch Riptide unaware and take him out from behind.

    Our Battle Royal 12 Victor: Azazel!

  2. I disagree that Frigga would be taken out by Riptide. She can also wield magic and has protective powers- so she could protect herself. She has fast reflexes as well, so she'd probably catch a shuriken and throw it back and kill Riptide, and throw one at an unsuspecting Azazel as well, because he would probably underestimate her because she's an "old woman."

    I think she's tough enough to win the whole thing!

  3. For me it was between Frigga and Azazel. Pretty close, but I choose Frigga because she's a freaking goddess. Usually goddess do not die, mutants though can be mortal :) And she can heal quickly.

  4. I think a large contender that is not counted as a threat is Laufey. According to the movie he can freeze liquid and cause frostbite just to the touch. I think he would actually make it very far, freezing Wallow and slowing riptide down with freezing as well. This, however, would make him a prime target so he wouldn't make it in the end but he would do a lot of the killing.
    I also feel like it would boil down to Azazel and Frigga. Frigga has the sense of honor and attack you from the front in clean combat. Maybe because he looks like the devil and is pretty self serving I think Azazel would fight dirty. They are both great swordsmen/women but I think Azazel would eventually get some cheap shots in that would win him the match.
