    I mean, I love Namor - certainly my favorite character in this Rumble - but he's not winning.
    You mean Val isn't your most favoritist character ever?! But he's the best, a half century of consistent but otherwise nonsensical feats guaranteed to drive any Bat-God worshipper insane in a straight up fight...

    Good lord, no. Not even close. I mean, I know the guy's feats but feats be damned; I'm not so interested in him.

    Namor is much more fun. ^_^ And funny.

    When it comes to martial artists, there a whole lot of lesser ones I like waaaay more than Val, mostly because of their personalities, goals, overall character, etc. And yes, their martial arts are part of that, but not nearly the whole of it.

    Fat Cobra IS pretty cool. He's not in my top five or anything, but still pretty awesome.

    ...I realize this would highly offend him.

    I still find it pretty awesome that Black Dragon was the one who got the kill on Fiery God Shibumi. It was a team effort to beat him to be sure but I just find it interesting that he's the one who got the finishing move in.

    Ancestor otoh just keeps right on beasting over everyone.

    Black Dragon has some fantastic moments (who crushes Chan O-Wan?). Was rather pleased he got a nice power boost to keep him relevant later in the series.

    Ancestor is basically a monster - even with the writer. When you can beat up the Gary Stu main character, again and again...
