When a hero falls, one would hope that they are able to go to a better place, but sometimes, just sometimes, they come back as a ghost to haunt our lives and make us miserable.  If ghosts could be tangible enough to fight each other, and could die once again, who would win in The Major Spoilers Spooktacular Poll of the Week?

    Slimer would win for a very simple reason – according to Dan Ackroyd, he is the ghost of John Belushi as Bluto. Bluto versus an eternal boy scout? Yeah, that’ll go well.

    Casper all the way, he might be a boy scout but his uncles would shred Slimer to bits.

    It’s gotta be slimer all the way. If Casper’s Uncles are in the fight then why not throw Gozer in there too?

    Casper has always struck me as having more higher brain functions than Slimer. Problem solving-wise Casper might be able to figure out a way to get Slimer trapped faster than Slimer would him. Slimer is more “animalistic” in thinking so he’d be more ferocious but…

    But in the end Casper still gets to make out with Christina Ricci! (that’s gotta count for something)

      Word. I was on Slimer’s side all the way, but the Christina Ricci factor really counts for something. I was 12 when Casper came out, so Christina Ricci was one of my first big actress crushes. Damn, what a pickle. In a conversation/game of chess/getting the hot girl/coloring inside the lines capacity Casper wins, in a fight/eating contest/sliming/scaring the crap out of people capacity hands down Slimer all the way.

      The down side for Casper ultimately lies in the fact that when turned into a real human boy, he’s Devon Sawa. Cute to the tween girls, but useless in a fight.

    I had to give it to the mother puss bucket himself ye ol’ Slimer. The ghost of John Belushi, vs the Ghost of Richie Rich? Come on.

    Slimer would win, but only if Casper didn’t have a chance to explain himself before the Ghostbusters proton packed his intangible behind.

    Don’t let Casper’s smile fool you…his pimp hand is strong.
