Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Occasionally we like to throw two fictional characters into the Major Spoilers Pit and let them fight it out in a no holds barred battle of wits and fisticuffs to see who will climb out victorious.  Today, we do it again with two muscle bound characters who are sure to bring the crowd to their feet.
In the far corner (of the round pit) stands He-Man of Eternia, who raises his mighty sword and claims “By the Power of Grayskull! I have the power!”
And in the other corner stands the barbarian from Cimmeria – CONAN!
Who would win in a fight?

Who would win in a fight?

    Molly Danger kind of reminds me of the super powered teenager from 7 Soldier of Victory, Sally Sonic.

    The Astro Boy theory seems dead on though, or maybe Megaman.

    All the Astro boy talk on this episode reminds me of a great Manga called Pluto. Pluto is 8 volume manga based on an Astro Boy. If you guys are interested in a sci-fi detective story with great art that deconstructs the world that Astro Boy takes place in, check Pluto out. I would really enjoy hearing your opinion on it on the show.

    Also, its nice seeing an older actor taking up the role of The Doctor again, it a welcome change from the young fellas that have had the role for current incarnations.

      Oh, and He-Man would beat the tar out of Conan, dude is ridiculously strong and fast and has tons of wacky abilities.

      Watch this vid to get an idea crap he can pull off:
