Today we’ll take a look at a clash between two iron-clad heroes who save the world using their awesome high-tech mechanical suits:
Gizmo Duck Vs. Iron Man!
Their shared background:
Both are geniuses in their own way, Tony Stark (Iron Man) being a well versed technological genious and Fenton Crackshell (Gizmo Duck) being a genius when it comes to counting (in a savant kind of way) and both wear mechanical suits to augment and reinforce their physical capabilities. Both carry their suits in briefcases.
Iron man has repulsor rays that are fired from his palms, a beam from his chest; pulse bolts, an electromagnetic pulse generator and a defensive 360 degrees energy shield. He also can have suits with freeze beams, magnetic field manipulation, hologram projection and a very strong defence to begin with. He can fly with the jet packs on the suits boots.
Gizmo Duck has a humongous defence that can withstand almost any kind of attack and explosive devices. He’s only been shown to have wrecked the suit after a whole planet’s worth of explosives went off on him. In this regard the defence is well above the defensive properties of Iron Man’s suit. Also he can bring forth virtually any weapon he wants, such as machine guns, bombs and missiles, and even skunks and other not so conventional items. He can fly with a propeller on his head. He gets into the suit faster than Tony Stark does.
Iron Man is not only vain but also very arrogant to the point of making mistakes and underestimating his opponents. His suit is very resistant, but not invulnerable, to various veapons. If Tony Stark runs out of energy he risks to die as the energy source of his suit is connected with his own “battery” that keeps his heart from stopping.
Gizmo Duck is not always the smartest one battle wise and is, like Tony Stark, very susceptible for flattery and praise. I’m not sure he has any weaknesses really. Maybe it’s his gullibility.
Even though Iron Man has more tricks up his sleeve I’ll have to say that Gizmo Duck’s impermeable defences nullify most, if not all, of Iron Mans attacks. And seeing as he has missiles and other strong weapons that are able to seriously hurt Iron Man, and since he has the heart and motivation of a true hero, I think that he’d have the greatest chance of winning. This is a tricky one though. My opinion is that:
Gizmo Duck emerges as the winner!
Now what do you think? This one is up to debate!
