TK 109: I Care About You

In this special freestyle episode of Tres Komikeros, John and Alex welcome the newest member to the cell block — Butch Mapa! He has a purdy mouth.  This week, the boys discuss Amazing Spider-Man, Waid’s Daredevil, Punk Rock Jesus, Adventure Time, and a ton of other stuff.  This show was recorded Friday night, so most of the major news out of San Diego is not yet tackled, particularly the major movie announcements.  In any case, sit back and enjoy this show!

Monday Match-up

BATMAN vs DAREDEVIL

“Hey! That’s MY gargoyle!”

Batman: Upon seeing his parents murdered in front of him as a young boy, Bruce Wayne honed his mind and body into weapons against crime and corruption.  With state of the art technology, the sharpest mind of his time, and the peak of human physical prowess,  he fights for justice as the Dark Knight, striking fear into the hearts of men.

Why He Wins: The Caped Crusader keeps DD at bay with an array of batarangs and smoke pellets, at which point he notices that his adversary is able to dodge or duck everything he throws at him.  Deducing that DD has heightened or superhuman senses of some sort, he activates the sonic emitter to attract a flock of bats to throw DD off-balance in mid-leap.  The hypersonics confirm Batman’s suspicions of heightened hearing, at which point he uses silent lasers to dispatch or disable Murdock, without ever having to land a punch.

—–

Daredevil: Exposed to toxic chemicals as a child, Matt Murdock was initially stricken blind but eventually developed superhuman senses and agility.  With his heightened sensory accuracy and sensitivity, he fights for justice in Hell’s Kitchen as the man without fear.

Why He Wins: With Daredevil’s moniker being “The Man Without Fear,” and Batman relying on his abiltiy to strike terror into his opponents, the Dark Knight loses an edge.  Batman may use an assortment of gadgets, but even Bullseye (who supposedly never misses) has a hard time hitting Daredevil — it’ll be impossible for Batman to hit him with anything.  Given all that, this will become a straight-up fist fight.  Physically, both heroes are in peak condition.  Batman is physically stronger, while Daredevil is more agile.  Daredevil will be able to see everything Batman throws at him coming, and without any intel on each other, it’s impossible to figure out that Daredevil is, in fact, blind… since nothing he does in costume hints at it.  Evenly matched, it all comes down to who has powers.  And Batman is simply all too human against a devil.

neeheeAlso, here’s an image of John photo-manipulated by his girlfriend Jad.  Apparently she prefers him cut up and with… twisty parts.
