Welcome to the all new weekly feature on www.JCWigriff.com called “Who Would Win in a Fight?”
In this weekly event, I will pit two contenders from the video game world against each other. I won’t decide the victor though – that is for you to do. I’m just the event promoter, outlining each warrior’s attributes and abilities. As Sgt. Friday would say on Dragnet, “Just the facts, ma’am.”
Tell me what you think. Back your contender up. Comment, argue, fight, and bicker. Nitpick over asinine discrepancies and minute details.
So, without further ado…
Who Would Win in a Fight?
Special Agent 007
In the red corner, we have the well-dressed, martini drinking, womanizing James Bond.
007′s weapon of choice is a Walther PPK 7.65mm, but he is trained and very capable with a multitude of firearms, and the best shot in the British Secret Service.
His additional skills include hand-to-hand combat, driving, underwater swimming, skiing, and effortlessly talking women out of their clothes.
Bond often carries a booby-trapped attaché case, and an assortment of gadgets. With an arsenal including dagger shoes, a garrote watch, lasers, nerve gas, a rocket belt, amini-rocket cigarette, a bo-spear, a flamethrower spray can, the Moonraker Laser… well, you get the idea. Bond is one dangerous and sneaky son-of-a-bitch.
When 007 rolls into town in his Aston Martin, death will surely follow – but will Bond be too busy making his “O” face to notice…
In the red corner, we have Hitman’s Agent 47 – a bald, near emotionless test-tube baby, with a penchant for killing and rabbit adoption.
Agent 47 is proficient with all weapon types, has near-perfect aim, can operate a multitude of vehicle types, and is a master of disguise.
47 is also a stealthy bastard, skilled in infiltration and evasion. To aid in avoiding detection, 47 often utilizes “fiber wires,” poisons and sedatives.
47 doesn’t have the improvisational skills of Bond though, and the predictability of his formulaic approach could prove to be his downfall.
So who’s it going to be – 007 or 47? You decide.
