People’s History of the Marvel Universe, Week 18: The Social Worker and the COP

When we last left our heroes, Captain America and the Falcon had returned to New York City after liberating a Caribbean island from Nazis and once again foiling the Red Skull’s Cosmic Cube machinations. Upon their return in #120, the question became what the status quo would be for the new partnership in their new environment.

(Pictured: two bros just broing around, casually shirtless.
It’s not like they do this all the time or anything.)

The new status quo would take a few issues to show up, but starting with #139, for almost two years – two years which saw Captain America and the Falcon handed off from Stan Lee[1] to Steve Englehart (by way of Gary Friedrich and Gerry Conway)[2] – Cap writers went back to one of the oldest scenarios in comics.

By night, Captain America and the Falcon would patrol New York City as vigilante superheroes. By day, they would adopt civilian identities that spoke to their ideas of civic engagement: Sam Wilson returned to his job as a social worker, Steve Rogers took up a new job as a cop. Both worked the Harlem beat.[3]

These are their stories.

Valiant Hero Of The Week: It’s The Eternal Warrior vs. Wolverine, Deadpool, and Captain America!

Valiant Hero of the Week

Every Monday for the next few weeks, Valiant Entertainment is running a poll on their Twitter feed to provide fans with some escapism while new comics are in short supply. The poll allows Valiant fans the opportunity to select the Hero Of The Week from four choices – this past week, the poll featured Ninjak, Punk Mambo, Doctor Mirage and the Eternal Warrior. That week’s hero will then be the focus of free pdfs featuring the character, videos from Valiant staff, giveaways and more.

The Eternal Warrior won the poll this week, which was an excellent excuse to take a look at how Valiant’s resident immortal would fare against characters from Marvel who fall roughly within his power level and skill set based on a random first encounter (much like Batman, if you give Gilad a chance to prepare he can punch far above his weight when it comes to his adversaries).

Who is the Eternal Warrior?

Eternal Warrior

An immortal warrior who is bound to defend the Geomancers – those who speak for the earth. Gilad Anni-Padda is thousands of years old, and has the combat experience that time and practice bring. An expert tactician and weapons master, Gilad also has enchanced strength, durability, stamina and a restorative healing ability that can repair critical injuries in a matter of days.

Although if Gilad takes enough damage he can die, he will always return to a fully healed body – but he can take a lot of damage; he is used to being impaled, cut, stabbed shot and burned. He can take and ignore a lot of damage and pain.

In terms of weaponry, Gilad has most recently carried with him an axe, a sword, two revolvers a grenade or two and several explosive charges. Due to the random encounter style of these imaginary fights, I’ll ignore the vast amounts of equipment he could bring to the field.

But the real question (or questions) that we’re all looking forward to answering are whether the Eternal Warrior could defeat…

Wolverine

When it comes to fighting Wolverine, the difference maker is Logan’s skeleton. Eternal Warrior is on par with Logan in terms of speed, is arguably stronger and has thousands of years of combat experience on Logan.

While Gilad doesn’t heal as fast as Wolverine, he his more durable in terms of the punishment his body can take before it needs to heal. If Logan gets shot, the bullet can bounce of his bones, Gilad’s muscles can absorb the bullet. But I can’t see them stopping Wolverine’s adamantium claws.

Wolverine may not carry as much weaponry as the Eternal Warrior tends to, but he doesn’t need to. Between his adamantium and his healing factor, then he leaves Gilad very little chance to effectively stop Wolverine for any real length of time.

At the end of the day, this would come down to who can soak the most damage from their opponent. The Eternal Warrior can take as much as Wolverine, but doesn’t heal as fast (the caveat here is that depending on the writer, we’ve seen both men take and walk away from a lot of punishment; it’s not unheard of for Gilad to allow himself to lose body parts to win, or to die just to learn his opponents tactics). No matter what happens in this fight, it would more than likely come down to the smallest of things between these two; does Wolverine break the Eternal Warrior’s axe and sword before they end up doing severe damage? Can the Eternal Warrior avoid the claws long enough to sever Logan’s femoral or carotid artery?

Ultimately, f it wasn’t for Wolverine’s adamantium skeleton, then I’d say there’s no way that he’d be able to stand against the Eternal Warrior for long, but as it is I think it’s slightly more likely that Wolverine walks away victorious, but severely wounded.

Deadpool

Deadpool verses the Eternal Warrior would be a fantastic thing to see, but I think that it would result in Valiant’s immortal guardian leaving pieces of Wade Wilson in the dirt.

In terms of fighting ability, Gilad’s experience would trump Deadpool’s skill, and their weaponry would be fairly similar (depending on which version of Deadpool we’re looking at). As we saw with Wolverine above, the Eternal Warrior’s ability to heal from wounds would come at a distant second to Deadpool – but Gilad’s body is much hard to damage than Wade’s. Does Deadpool have the ability to stand toe to toe with Gilad in a fight? Absolutely. But I think that the difference here will be in their attitudes. The Eternal Warrior won’t spend as much time talking as he will trying to kill Deadpool, and Deadpool may not take his opponent as seriously.

Or, he’ll be too busy trying to distract the Eternal Warrior with some fourth wall breaking quips as his body starts to lose pieces.

When the dust settles, the Eternal Warrior will be walking away with half a sword impaled within him as Deadpool’s head laugh’s at the absurdity of the fight.

Captain America

If Captain America can disarm the Eternal Warrior then he stands a chance. Weaponless, the two men would be on fairly equal footing in terms of physical strength and stamina.

Now whether Captain America talks Gilad into an unarmed combat or he’s able to use his shield to knock away the axe and sword that’ll probably be down to the writer’s discretion (if it was me, I’d say that Cap would be able to disarm Gilad, but would likely lose his shield in the process).

At this point it’d be a first fight. We know Cap will never back down, and that he can go all day, but so can the Eternal Warrior.

Whether it’s hours or days, Gilad will eventually over come Captain America.

But the real question (or questions) that we’re all looking forward to answering are whether the Eternal Warrior could defeat…

Batman

I was thinking that Batman would be at a disadvantage right from the offset, but it’s not like Batman hasn’t come across somebody stronger and physically tougher than him before and come out on top without any time to plan ahead. Only this time, he’d be coming up against a man every bit as skilled as he.

Does the Dark Knight have enough equipment on him to defeat Gilad? Maybe, but it’d be a very close thing. Batman can’t out fight or outlast the Eternal Warrior, and he’d have a much harder time hurting him then Gilad would hurting Batman. The question really comes down to whether Batman can figure out how to take his opponent down with what he has on him and how he employs it. Will the Dark Knight underestimate the Eternal Warrior?

Will the Eternal Warrior leave Batman alive when the dust has settled? One thing’s for sure – if Batman loses the first encounter, and survives, then he’d be more likely to win the second once he knows who and what he’s up against.

I think that it’s more likely Batman will win the rematch than he will the first encounter given how they match up.

Deathstroke

Probably the most interesting match-up in terms of ability and equipment in a random encounter, the Eternal Warrior verses Deathstroke would be a fantastic fight to read in a comic book. Breaking it down, their strength, speed, endurance and stamina are very at very comparable levels. Deathstroke does seem to heal at a faster rate than Gilad, but the Eternal Warrior is a bit more durable than DC’s antihero.

Deathstroke is a highly skilled and deadly combatant, but the Eternal Warrior has him beat in terms of experience and ability. If it was two men facing off with swords and a couple of pistols, then I wouldn’t hesitate to give the nod to the Eternal Warrior. He’s beaten faster and stronger opponents than Deathstroke before by relying on his ability to read their style (thousands of years of combat does tend to give one an edge).

But with all things being as equal as they are, I think that Deathstroke’s Ikon suit would give him an edge. Could Eternal Warrior break through it? Maybe, but I think that the suit adds just enough of an advantage to for Deathstroke so that the scales would tip in his favour.

Vandal Savage

Valiant’s immortal hero verses DC’s immortal villain. It’d be a fight that could last for a long time, and if it was a comic book it could span thousands of years as the two face off across the years. But in a random encounter? I think that the Eternal Warrior is more likely capable of doing more serious damage to Vandal Savage in a random encounter based on what you see Savage typically carry, and the Eternal Warrior’s tendency to take any advantage he can.

When it comes to two skilled fighters going at each other, one unarmed and one not, then I think the outcome is heavily weighted in the favour of the man with the axe and sword. Despite the two being immortal, and despite neither one being able to stay dead, I think that the Eternal Warrior would stumble away victorious from the fight, leaving the pieces of Vandal Savage to regroup.

Valiant Hero Of The Week: It’s Ninjak vs. Batman, Daredevil, Wolverine, and Captain America!

Valiant Hero of the Week

Every Monday for the next few weeks, Valiant Entertainment is running a poll on their Twitter feed to provide fans with some escapism while new comics are in short supply. The poll allows Valiant fans the opportunity to select the Hero Of The Week from four choices – this past week, the poll featured Ninjak, Faith, Roku and Ivar, Timewalker. That week’s hero will then be the focus of free pdfs featuring the character, videos from Valiant staff, giveaways and more.

Faith won the poll this week, which was presented as who would be most likely to win a karaoke contest. I totally understand why Faith won the poll, but I was a little disappointed that I’ll have to wait for a little to showcase Ninjak. Depending on when this goes live you’ve probably seen at the very least Graphic Policy’s favorite Faith covers, and you can still expect to see our recommendations of the best stories featuring Faith. Just because I was looking forward to (and hoping for) a week to feature Ninjak doesn’t mean I will ignore Faith.

But I really wanted to explore how Ninjak would fare against Batman, Wolverine, and various other comic book characters who fall roughly within his skill and power level. So I decided to throw in a little bonus this week for fans of Valiant’s purple loving ninja.

But who is Ninjak?

A blend of Batman and James Bond. Colin King is at the peak of human conditioning, both physical and mental, has access to near limitless financial resources. Ninjak is a mercenary, also works on contract for MI6 as a high tech ninja operative. If you’re looking for something familiar from Valiant, then you’d think that Ninjak would scratch the Batman itch, but unlike Batman, Ninjak has no problem using his weapons to their full deadly potential. The similarities between Batman and Ninjak are obvious at first glance; both are highly trained billionaires who live in massive houses with highly specialized equipment, both are very intelligent men who have been highly trained in various forms of martial arts. Both wear masks that don’t completely cover their face.

I’m not going to list Ninjak’s equipment, skills or anything. You can find that here if you want to look (just scroll to the bottom of the page unless you want to read a full biography). Suffice it to say, Ninjak is every bit as capable a fighter as you can expect to find.

Ninjak

But the real question (or questions) that we’re all looking forward to answering are whether Ninjak could defeat…

Batman

I was going to leave this until the end, but this is what I wanted to explore most with this article/list/whatever you want to call it.

Could Ninjak concevably beat Batman in a random encounter fight? I think that he could, for a lot of the reasons outlined above regarding their similarity – depending on whether the writer decided to follow the Bat-god formula where Batman can beat anybody with a half hour’s preparation, or if it is the version of Batman we’ve seen lately in Scott Snyder, Tom King, and James Tynon IV’s respective runs of the character.

If we’re looking at that version of Batman, then yes. I absolutely believe Ninjak could beat Batman. Here’s why:

Both Batman and Ninjak are very similar. For all intents and purposes Ninjak is Valiant’s version of Batman, or as close as the publisher is likely to get. They’re both expert martial artists and weapon masters with a vast arsenal of technology at their disposal, and both like to be prepared. So when you pit them against each other, the only major difference is that Ninjak has no problem killing his enemies. His tech is designed to make him more lethal, whereas Batman is fundamentally opposed to killing. If all is equal between the two, Batman’s refusal to take a life could be all the advantage Ninjak needs. It would be a long, close fight, but I think that Batman walking into somebody equally as skilled as he is with no compunction not to kill and no chance to plan ahead would ultimately prove too much for the Dark Knight. We’ve seen it before with The Batman Who Laughs, and we’d see it again with Ninjak and his swords.

I realize the argument is essentially boiling down to the fact Batman won’t kill, but sometimes it can be the smallest things that decide a fight, and if Batman is unprepared, then Ninjak wins the first fight. But Batman would win the rematch(es).

Daredevil

Really, the only advantage Daredevil has is that he will always know where Ninjak is coming from… but does that mean he could actually stop him? Daredevil has fought hundreds of Hand ninjas in his life, but Ninjak is more than a Hand ninja. For one thing, he’d mow through Marvel’s cannon fodder, but he also utilizes more technology than the Hand would conceive of. Another close fight, but I can’t see Daredevil being able to beat Ninjak, though I think it would be a hard fought battle.

I think it would be a far more brutal fight than Batman vs Ninjak, and there will be a period where Daredevil has Ninjak off balance while tries to use various visual tricks (smoke bombs) that will have no impact on the Marvel hero. Eventually, however, Daredevil’s lack of armour in his costume will play a big role in his defeat; you can’t avoid Ninjak’s blades forever.

Wolverine

Here’s the thing with Ninjak fighting Wolverine; it isn’t that Ninjak couldn’t get the upper hand, I just don’t think he could keep it long enough to actually win. Wolverine’s fighting skill is often over looked in the comics, because he’s an unstoppable savage when fighting; he doesn’t need to use all his skill most fights he gets into because of his healing factor. And when part of your fighting style is to soak damage with your healing factor while also being a highly trained fighter, it leaves Ninjak a little out of his depth. But this would be a fantastic fight to watch, nonetheless.

If it wasn’t for Wolverine’s healing factor, then I’d probably be more inclined to give the nod to Ninjak. At least the fight would be closer to a toss up at that point, but as it is, there’s no way he could beat Logan in a random encounter.

Captain America

The only way I honestly see Ninjak coming away victorious in this battle is if Captain America is distracted by something he can’t control, enabling Ninjak to land an incapacitating blow. Otherwise, Cap’s stamina and strength coupled with his fighting skills are going to be too much for Ninjak to overcome. I see this being a long, drawn out fight that’s more likely to end with a ceasefire than an outright victory, but Ninjak will be hard pressed to gain the upper hand.

You may argue that Batman has beaten Captain America before, and therefore should be able to beat Ninjak. But if that A beats B so can beat C logic is followed, then Wolverine should be able to defeated Superman because he beat Lobo (and we all know that’d never happen). Batman was able to take advantage of Cap’s momentary loss of focus when they confronted each other (in Marvel Verses DC), and it’d be the same set of circumstances that I see Ninjak needing to win over the super soldier.


This was a Marvel heavy list, but it also made more sense to me to list off folks that Ninjak is more likely to come across. I was going to include Deathstroke, but the reason I think Ninjak would lose is almost the same as why I think Wolverine would win (likewise for Deadpool). If Valiant run another poll featuring Ninjak, I expect there’ll be another version of this, but if you want more Ninjak then you can check out the Ninjak Vs The Valiant Universe webseries on Youtube.
