Darth Vader certainly showed why he’s a favorite in this Movie Madness tournament. In Wednesday’s matchup, he took down Dutch, a man who survived a nuclear explosion, without much of a fight at all. Today, we’ll dive into the matchup that will determine which unlucky person will have to face Vader in the next round: Tony Stark or the Terminator.
Now here’s a very interesting matchup. Usually, I would say that the Terminator is the favorite. He’s a nearly indestructible robot from the future who seems to annihilate anything that gets in his way. He’s certainly a formidable foe for anyone, but today he’s going up against Tony Stark. The odds may have swung out of the Terminator’s favor on this one.
Tony Stark – He easily glided past Dr. Horrible in the first round and found a way to kill the nightmare-stalking Freddy Krueger in the second. Even though his rich playboy antics can get him into trouble, it seems that his wealth of engineering knowledge has been able to help him progress through the tournament.
Secret Weapon: Speaking of engineering knowledge, isn’t it completely possible that Tony Stark would be the man to bring the Terminator to his metallic knees? The guy can assemble destructive weapons out of spare parts in a cave. Couldn’t he find a way to disassemble the Terminator?
The Terminator – He came into this tournament as a favorite of fans, and also possesses a lot of raw badass-ness. He’s a killing machine sent from the future to wipe out whomever he’s been programmed to target. Not only is he an effective assassin, but he’s also one of the best catchphrase factories ever built.
Secret Weapon: I feel like the Terminator is at a horrible disadvantage going up against a genius engineer like Tony Stark. Even so, the Terminator is a killing machine. If he can get to Stark before Stark can formulate a plan, then he might just be able to win this thing. He’s going to have to be more effective than ever before to beat Tony Stark, though.
