You have to be kidding, ThatJeff, right? I mean in a straight brawl Catman, Deadshot, Scandal, Ragdoll, Bane & Tarantula against Sandman, Mysterio, Chameleon, Kraven, Vulture & Doctor Octopus?could go either way, because hey, its comics!
The Secret Six's members are nastier, more prone to use lethal force and all `good fighters' where as the sinister group admittedly have `weaker' members like Chameleon (a great spy and manipulator but next to useless in a fist fight) balanced by powerhouses like Sandman and Doc Oc (who'd outclass any member of the six by a mile in a direct confrontation, though with prep Catman, Scandal or Bane could come up with something to take them down I guess, on the other hand Mysterio is a total wildcard and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be hard to say what `effectÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ he could have on the fight.)
In either case casting aspersions on Kraven's ability is just madness. I mean he's fought one on one with Spider-Man, Black Panther and Sabretooth and held his own, and they stand as fairly analogous to (or above in SpideyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s case) those DC villains. Likewise, I think Vulture just seems lame because youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen him get beaten so many times, but to be fair, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Spider-Man who general kicks the old guys arse, and as IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve suggested, not one of the Secret Six would have a prayer against him direct and one on one. (Again, prep time or `the element of surpriseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ could make a difference, as it did for Kraven in the Last Hunt). So, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go underestimating the old bird!
In anycase, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m enjoying secret six and I think I will enjoy Doctor Doom & the Masters of Evil, so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a win all round.
Whoa, that was my biggest geek out in ages! I feel all light headed.
