Life as a comics nerd can be pretty relaxing.  There’s not a lot of exercise involved, aside from long box storage issues, and it’s fun to occasionally meet a strange and immediately have common ground in making fun of Quicksilver’s new haircut.  But, there is one place where the entire fanboy/fangirl lifestyle becomes SERIOUS BUSINESS, and that is in the matter of the “Who’d win?” argument.  Indeed, with experience, we can even extend that paradigm to the question of Han Solo vs. Mal Reynolds, Kathie Lee vs. Kelly Ripa and LEGO vs. Mister Potato-Head, which leads us to today’s probably ridiculous query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has some money set aside to bet on Tony The Tiger, because, duh, he’s a freakin’ tiger, asking: What breakfast cereal mascot would win an all-out battle to the death?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    I’m gonna vote Cap’n Crunch. He stays aboard his ship until the others have whittled their numbers down, then takes out the exhausted leftovers with the ship’s cannons.

      Snap, Crackle and Pop see your measly fleet and raise you an airship.

      Air Superiority!

      … Of course that depends on the range of your canons..

    I have to go with the Freakies. They’ve got shock value plus strength in numbers, not to mention a great theme song.

    I vote the magical leprechaun from lucky charms. He would use magic to defeat the tucan from fruit loops and the bear from shop rite generic brand frosted flakes. (The second and third place winners)
