Battle Royal 15

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'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.

Who will be the victor? Only YOU can decide!

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.

The twelve characters that are involved in the Battle Royal 15 are the last twelve characters that have been highlighted on the Marvel Madness blog:

Hugo Natchios, Georgi Luchkov, Nick Manolis, Kid Omega, Battling Jack, Agent Garrett, Agent Jackson, H.E.R.B.I.E., Bluebird, Mary Parker, Richard Parker, and Burglar. (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. This time around we have lots of spies, assassins, fighters, etc. Of the "non-powered" humans, I believe Georgi Luchkov, Agent Jackson, Mary Parker, and Richard Parker would be in the "non-powered" final four. Both Richard and Mary have CIA training; Georgi has KGB training; and Agent Jackson has SHIELD training. But, Richard Parker's Army background gives him an edge, in my opinion, which would make him the winner of the "non-powered" characters.

    Kid Omega does have telepathy powers so he could destroy the humans with no problem. Which leaves the cyborg (Agent Garrett) and the robot (HERBIE) to fight against Kid Omega.

    Now, Agent Garrett still is 20% human which I would assume would leave him vulnerable to Kid Omega's telepathy. However, HERBIE is not human and I would assume that would make him immune to telepathy. So, it comes down to Kid Omega v.s. HERBIE.

    Now, when Doctor Sun controlled HERBIE he had optical blasts that was able to take down the individual members of the Fantastic Four. If we were to include those powers, I would say HERBIE is the winner. But, that only occurred when Doctor Sun was in control of HERBIE. So, because Kid Omega was trained in various martial arts--due to training with the X-Men--I believe HERBIE would eventually lose out to Kid Omega. (But, I could definitely see the argument against this, with HERBIE being able to fly around and possibly using his coils to entrap Kid Omega.)

    It would be a close one, but I believe the victor of Battle Royal 15 is Kid Omega!

  2. I agree that this is between Herbie and Kid, but I do not agree that kid omega would overcome Herbie. Even though Herbie isn't a fighting robot, neither is Kid omega...beyond the x-men basics I guess. Non-organics tend to have slightly better stamina and durability than squishy people.

  3. I agree that the 2 last would be kid omega and Herbie. However Herbie would win, if you look at the last paragraph of his article you will see that he is now the guardian of the Richard's kids. Now I am no super genius but I think that Reed Richards would put in some lethal and non lethal aspect to the New herbie.

  4. Yeah, I don't think HERBIE is nearly powerful enough. Just because he can fly doesn't mean he's programmed for combat. I think Kid Omega will win!

  5. I had to change my vote. I originally had the same thoughs where it will boil down to robot vs mutant. While I was stewing over what combat abilities Omega would have vs HERBIE's possible laser then I thought, why would only these two have weapons? We have a couple SHIELD agents and a KGB officer. Its not spelled out in the bios of what weapon they would carry but I would assume SHIELD agents are always armed, most likely with guns. Luchkov did not shoot at the Black Widow while she chased him. So I assume he will not have a gun but knows how to use one and will make an effort to get his hands on one.

    Kid Omega's powers are outlined as "manipulate" others thoughts and actions. That does not tell me control. Plus telepathic abilities often require a degree of concentration. I don't think he could manipulate all of his opponents at once and would make himself an easy target for anyone.
    HERBIE does fly and could have a laser. However he does not appear to be built for durability. I don't think it would take very much damage to disable his thrusters or laser.

    I think this one would actually come down to the SHIELD/KGB Agents. Agent Garret is a cyborg, which should afford him more durability, speed, strength and stamina through the fight. I believe he would be the last one standing.
