    Ya know…if you go with “the guy who has laser beams coming out of his eyes wins” argument, then doesn’t it follow that you have to go with the “the droid with access to every possible gadget known to man wins” argument here?

    Bubo hands down he can fly and is owned by a god they’ll just bring him back to life every time and Clash of the Titans is one of the best movies Ive ever seen

    But Clash of the Titans had some nudity in it if I remember right. And yes, I am an “old man” and saw it in the theater. I also saw Star Wars in the theater.

    R2D2 no matter how groan inducing the experience was can fly as well….Also he has a gay sidekick and a utillitybelt (well close) hes practically the Golden age Batman.

    But Bubo has been mentioned in a Strong Bad E- Mail… and I’m a sucker for the underdog.

    Your saying you rather have a gay sidekick that gets his ass kicked over Athena a Goddess

    I like Techno do you? It was just a guy that has an owl like mask

    R2D2 is basically the Chuck Norris of robots. It wouldn’t even be close.
