Who Would Win in a Fight?
Panel Room 1
Saturday: 11:00pm - 11:50pm
Let’s face it – conventions are all about nerds getting together to nerd out with other nerds, and this panel is no exception. The rules are simple: two characters enter, one character emerges victorious! Attendees write down any fictional character they want, be it from Anime, Video Games, TV Shows, Movies, Comics, Manga, anything you can think of! Two characters are chosen at random from the suggestions, and now they must fight! Iron Man vs. Kratos? Goku vs. Kirby? All Might vs. Spongebob Squarepants? Who do you think would win? This is an open discussion panel where your points and counterpoints determine the winner of this wacky brawl. Argue your sides and then everyone votes on who wins! Will this be a deep discussion on the logistics of two character’s abilities? Or an insane debate on whether or not Sora can beat Bugs Bunny? The choice is yours!
