John McClane made a worthy run to the Movie Madness Final Four, but he got stopped cold on Friday when he thought that he could take out Batman. I believed that McClane was more than capable of dispatching Batman to the afterlife, but the majority of our voters felt the exact opposite. Today’s matchup is a doozy, though: Darth Vader versus Indiana Jones. Let’s do this!
This matchup will decide who will go on to the big finale to face Batman for the championship. It’s almost an impossible matchup, too. We have two of cinema’s most popular characters. One is the hero of heroes, and the other is one of cinema’s nastiest and most memorable villains.
Indiana Jones – Dr. Jones has shown that popularity can carry you through anything. I know that he is THE Indiana Jones, but I still find it crazy that he was able to defeat Wolverine – an almost indestructible being with insane healing powers and metal spikes in his hands. Yet, Jones was able to take out him along with the likes of Hannibal Lecter and Boba Fett. He’s had one of the toughest roads to the Final Four, but he’s made it through because… well, how can we vote against Indiana Jones, right?
Darth Vader – Vader has had a relatively easy go at getting to the finals. I thought that his matchup against Tony Stark would have really tested exactly what he was made of, but his use of the Dark Side of the Force helped him overcome Iron Man. However, now Vader must go up against Indiana Jones, who has already proven to have fighting powers that we never knew.
Final Word: In a fight, I don’t see how Jones could overcome the powers that Vader possesses. However, maybe this match doesn’t come down to fighting skills at all. Maybe it comes down to who has the biggest following. Honestly, I have no idea which of these characters has the bigger fan base.
