Absolutely. Retarded.

Captain America vs Gambit is actually a pretty good idea for a fight. What happens if Gambit charges Cap's shield?
Wildaniel - 2/10/2012, 8:15 AM
Im picking the 2 avengers!!!
JackBauer - 2/10/2012, 8:24 AM
@Mass - I don't think he'll be able to. It should just absorb the energy.

I pick Cap over Gambit and somehow Spidey will beat Colossus because he always beat the Juggernaut, I think.

LOVE THE ARTWORK FOR THIS COVER

Gambit Vs. Cap is a Badass Fight. There total Opposites and can truly test eachothers skills.

Spidey and Jugolossus is stupid but Spidey has beat both Jugs and Piort. But he has lost to Colossus several times.....hmmm
supercajun - 2/10/2012, 8:28 AM
Hold up there old man Gusto, wes deh peeples down hera in deh South r very SMRAT!
SageMode - 2/10/2012, 8:28 AM
Spidey pulled a win over classic Juggernaut by outsmarting him, so Spidey's gonna have to very creative to pull a victory over Piotr.

Vegeta - 2/10/2012, 8:31 AM
why is colossus wearing juggernaut armour?
SpideyQuad - 2/10/2012, 8:34 AM
Peter's from "south" Russia, soooo.... Spidey will win on smarts alone. Cap has the cajon hands down. Pitty cause I'd give Gambit the edge vs a few Avengers. Just not Cap
SpideyQuad - 2/10/2012, 8:36 AM
You're the god darn Batman... you figure it out!
elessarundomiel2382 - 2/10/2012, 8:37 AM
@MassExecutions Cap's Shield would just absorb the blast, since its made of Vibranium/Adamantium
MassExecutions - 2/10/2012, 8:42 AM
@JackBauer, Stubby, elessarundomiel2382

Yeah, I know it won't hurt the shield, and I'd think the writers might say it can't even be charged, but what would be cool, is if it COULD be charged, Cap could still throw it, and it would cause and explosion without hurting the shield! That's how I'd write it.

@ Gusto

Hey you old bastard! You upset my cousin, whom I was fücking, of course, with that comment.

God Bless Texas

When are heroes going to get back to fighting villains for big events. Just saying...

Gambit cannot charge shield due to the vibarnium in it.
AlcoholicA - 2/10/2012, 8:59 AM
I think Spider-Man beating Juggernaut doesn't mean anything. Pitor is far more skilled at fighting. Juggernaut relied on sheer brute force due to his invunerability were as Colossus is part of a skilled team that has worked on far more strategic levels. He has much more practice fighting in situations where he is part of a team and solo. Then you add the power of Juggernaut ON TOP on that.

I should take offense to the south joke, because I'm from the south, south Louisiana at that, and a cajun or coonass as some of us call ourselves here, but i guess calling yourself a coonass justifies making south jokes about us lol but i won't because it's to easy to make fun of myself much less some of the people i know lol Anywho going with spidey and cap which I hate to say cause peter and Remy are two of my favorite characters.
JackBauer - 2/10/2012, 9:02 AM
@Mass - Nice idea bud. Works for me.
dnno1 - 2/10/2012, 9:05 AM
This should have been Marvel vs DC.
JackBauer - 2/10/2012, 9:06 AM
@Gusto - Hey old man! I'm from South Alabama. Easy on the southern jokes ;)
MassExecutions - 2/10/2012, 9:08 AM
Somebody who's from Michigan, and works for Canadians, shouldn't be making fun of anybody from any other part of the country.
mikebunt - 2/10/2012, 9:21 AM
Why's Gambit throwing his cards, when he's standing that close to Cap? How is he throwing his cards when he's that close to Cap?
Grimfoe - 2/10/2012, 11:07 AM
I can't imagine Cap taking more than 2 or 3 frames to beat up a punk like Gambit. Just not in the same league. I also don't see how Spiderman beats the new and improved Colossus. They'll have to think of something awfully clever as I'm sure they'll want Spidey to win.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 2/10/2012, 11:10 AM
For the fight between Spider-Man and "JuggerColossus," I would say that this match-up would be won by Spidey. Even though "JuggerColossus" is an expert combatant and his strength dwarfs Spidey's strength, I still think that Spider-Man will win. I say this because not only does his abilities that gives him the edge to fight opponents like Colossus, but also how he uses his environment to tackle his opponent. Brains over bronze, basically. So, really, it depends on the environment that they're in. If they're in an area where it's open and has lots of space, then Spidey can come up with a plan to use this area to his advantage and take down "JuggerColossus." But, if they are in an area where it's closed in and there's not enought room for Spidey to maneuver in, then he is pretty much in trouble, lol. That's what I think.

As for the fight between Gambit and Captain America, I think that Capt. America would win this round. Both of them are equally matched when it comes to combat, but with Cap, his agility, strength, endurance, and stamina are all advanced, thanks to the Super Soldier Serum. Plus, Capt. America is also a strategist, so that also gives him the edge to take on Gambit. Again, it's all about brains over bronze. Well, imo.

Stay EPIC, my friends!


Ashdm - 2/10/2012, 11:16 AM
I hate that Colossus is Juggernaut too now. Spidey and Cap win.
SotNatt - 2/10/2012, 11:22 AM
@dnno1

Why? There would be no point in it. Just a cross-over of franchises hoping to make bank on the (not-so) novelty of it all.

There's an actual, story-oriented reason why the Avengers are up against the X-Men in the Marvel universe.

I'm sorry DC is lacking purpose at the moment.
HulkbusterNYC - 2/10/2012, 11:59 AM
They should just all royal rumble/braveheart it!! Forget the stupid one on ones . If it's a real war it wouldn't be one on ones. X-Men SHOULD win over all but I feel like the Avengers WILL win. Just my opinion.
Zell9 - 2/10/2012, 12:32 PM
what the hell is up with with colossus' mouth and eyes

also gonna take the underdogs colossus and also I will take cap.
hoodedjester - 2/10/2012, 12:41 PM
Colossus' face looks ridiculous in that cover! He looks constipated
marvel72 - 2/10/2012, 1:36 PM
looks cool to me.

@ thegreenranger

are you. (absolutely retarded)
MasterApoc81 - 2/10/2012, 7:55 PM
