The Dark Lord of the Sith reminded us once again how powerful he really is by defeating Tony Stark/Iron Man in the last Movie Madness matchup on Friday. I thought Stark could have actually brought down Vader if the right situation presented itself, but apparently even he can’t take on the Force. Today we decide who the final member of the Final Four will be, as Alice and Batman battle in a showdown for the ages.
Can Alice be the only woman who reaches the final four, or will her unlikely run through this tournament end today? Alice and Batman seem pretty evenly matched, really. Alice has her superpowers and her innate killer instinct, while Batman has hardcore martial arts training, a lot of fancy gadgets, and a loyal fan base.
Alice – She’s been my favorite story of the tournament. Alice barely made it out of the first round by tying with Léon. After that, I think we all realized that she really is a formidable foe. She’s definitely the strongest female character in the tournament, and has shown her ability to kick some serious butt. After Léon, she took out Morpheus and Blade. Those weren’t easy opponents to dispatch. Now Alice faces her biggest test. Can she take out Batman? Or will Batman’s popularity prove too much of an obstacle?
Batman – He took out Han Solo. Han Solo! When I started this tournament and Han Solo ended up in a different bracket than Indiana Jones, I was sure we’d end up with two Harrsion Ford characters in the Final Four. Then it happened. Batman knocked off Solo and moved on without looking back. His win made sense to me. Batman has fighting skills that Solo simply doesn’t, and the majority of you readers thought likewise.
Final Word: Speaking of skills, while it was true that Batman had more than Solo, does he have more than Alice? They’re both hardened veterans when it comes to fighting, but in the killing department Alice has a decisive edge. Batman usually tries to keep his foes alive at all costs, while Alice blows holes clean through their skulls without thinking twice. We’ve also talked about how Alice procured superpowers like telekinesis later on in the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise, and we have to assume that she’ll be using those powers in this tournament. Truthfully, my gut says that Alice has an edge, but my brain says that Batman has too strong of a loyal fan base to let him lose.
