Bucky Barnes vs Jason Todd

Post by Ken »

This is assuming their skills and abilities that were in play between 1989 and 2005.

Who wins?

PP: U don't know what kind of people they have at the UN; I may go up in their estimation.

In the case of "to 2005" are we including the Winter Soldier launch or...?

Nope. Skipping the revival of Bucky as the Winter Soldier in January 2005 AND the revival of Jason Todd as the Red Hood the following month.

Jason wins. He's been dead for a shorter period of time, and his corpse was more intact after his death, in contrast to Bucky's near-disintegration.

What skills and abilities? They're dead!

Now I picture two corpses flopping around slapping at each other, being pushed and thrown by handlers behind them trying to make it look like the corpses are doing it all, Weekend-at-Bernie's style...

Depends, are they being manipulated by Jim Henson's Industrial Light and Magik? If so, i can picture that conversation....
Jim(moving his arms around crazily): "Quick Frank, throw Bucky's foot up!....Now somebody swing Jason's body forward!..." :lol:

But in all seriousness, at the time of their 'deaths' both Barnes and Todd were probably just breaking PL 9. Depending on the origin told, Jason was a highly trained Pickpocket & Thief before trying to boost Batman's ride(which admittedly took real Grapefruit's, especially at the time.). Corperal Barnes, however, was trained as a Soldier(even if he was just supposed to be a non-combat Aide-de-camp for the Squad Captain) specialty being Long Range Combat/Overwatch. It really comes down to environment. Jason would totally destroy Bucky in an urban area(even one that's been bombed repeatedly.Jason just has better general street knowledge) whereas Bucky would be able to take him out in one shot if in any other environment(as a trained Soldier, Bucky would've been forced to kill before his ill-fated Rocket ride. He was in the middle of a War, there's a 0.1 % chance of that happening).

Skill's and abilities wise, they're fairly even(just swap Jason's Street skills for Soldier's skills and you have Barnes).
