With thanks to James Wickenden on the HeroMachine Facebook page for the suggestion, this week’s Versus matches up the two men who are (arguably) the greatest sidekicks ever to graduate into full-blown super-herodom. I give you Bucky Barnes (aka “The Winter Soldier”) versus Dick Grayson (aka “Robin”, “Nightwing”, and “Batman”):
I love that both of these men started out as sidekicks to major super hero stars, and that neither has any inherent super powers. They’re just two highly trained, extremely capable, hardened warriors with plenty of high-tech gadgets to back them up. Also, it’s DC versus Marvel, which is always a bonus!
So lay it out for us: Who do you think would win this matchup, and why?
