There is a method to my madness when it comes to all these fight polls.  Just wait and see… just wait and see…

This week’s poll mixes up another set of properties in the same vein as Mole Man vs. Moleman.  I bring you the worst character ever created, battling the bottled essence of Nabu – Dr. Fate.


Dr. Fate or Manos: Hands of Fate?

Choose wisely, the “fate” of the Major Spoilers Poll Universe depends on it.

    Never having heard of Manos I have to go with the character who’s been screwed with worse than Hawkman.

    “Never having heard of Manos”

    On IMDB it is rated at 1.8/10, the 28th lowest of all time. It is EPIC stuff.

    Mystic or MST3K Star.

    Went with Dr. Fate, even if Manos was one of the best MST3K episodes.

    Had to do this:

    In the not too distant future
    somewhere in time and space
    [i]Kent[/i] Nelson and his robot pals
    are caught in an endless chase

    Hmmm…. If there IS indeed a theme to all these Vs. polls….. I’m intrigued as to what it might be. I think that shoulda been the Major Spoilers DK2 statue giveaway challenge: Figure out what goes on inside Stephen’s head. ^_^

    You don’t want to know what is going on inside my head…

    Even against a Dr. Fate throwing up devil horns — and where do I get me one of those!?! — there’s really no contest. Unless I missed the JLU ep where Kent and Inza drove down a random rural road for ten excruciating minutes for no apparent reason other than to consume ten excruciating minutes of royalty-free background music that hadn’t been used in the rest of the picture.

    Also: Torgo > Inza. You can look it up.

    Now if it was Torgo, there might be a contest, but as it stands it’s got to be Dr. Fate

    Manos: Hands of Fate is probably one of my favorite all time MST3K movies. It *is* a bit creepy in its own way though.

    As an aside, with there already being David Banner and MF Doom, how is there not a rapper named Doctah Fate?

    Jim: You need to listen to the new podcast MSP#32 going up in the next hour and you’ll here our own Doctah Fate beat boxin an intro for us.

    “You don’t want to know what is going on inside my head…”

    Notes to Stephen (re: what’s going on inside his head):
    1) Women don’t bend that way. Even double-jointed women.
    2) That’s not the correct way to use a pancake.
