    Default Val Armory versus Namor

    So my last attempt to find a worthy for for Karate Kid was less than successful so now I'm upping the ante! (This is not a spite thread or deliberate curbstomp, God's honest truth) so now it's Spock lookalike and guy with ankle wings Namor King of Atlantis. Is he durable enough to take hits from Val before he can get in strikes of his own? Does he have the skill to land the solid hits he's going to need? I dunno, that's why I'm asking...

    Namor can fly, but Val is possibly fast enough to clear the default 100' starting distance to smack him. Even if Namor gets in the air, he doesn't have anyway to attack Val without getting to HTH range. Compared to Val, Namor is a slow target who will take a terrific beating without returning any blows. I don't know if Namor has any thunderclap feats, and out of water he is just barely at the strength level where Marvel characters are doing thunderclaps. So Namor's one hope is flying out of range and then thunderclapping Val. If Namor can't get airborne fast enough or can't do thunderclaps, he loses.

    Namor can DEFINITELY do thunderclaps.

    Val has a flight ring.

    Forgot about the Legion flight ring, which lets Val fly considerably faster than Namor, which means Namor will be getting pummeled and KO'd long before he has time to clap his hands.

    I don't think Namor can compete with Val Armory's Arsenal.

    Also, this is apparently Val Armory. Which means he's likely kitted out with all kinds of weapons.

    Was thinking more melee stuff, but heck, that works! ^_^ Nice one.

    What if Namor grabs Val bringing him into/under the water?

    I don't see any water being mentioned in the OP so it's in the arena.

    Though I wouldn't be surprised if Val has a pressure point technique to temporarily disable underwater-breathing capabilities.

    Also, flight ring. I strongly doubt that Namor's flight ability is powerful enough to overcome something that allows for FTL flight between stars.

    ...also, Namor isn't touching Val, much less grabbing him. Val is far, far too fast and skilled. Basically, Namor is a punching bag here.

    I mean, I love Namor - certainly my favorite character in this Rumble - but he's not winning.
