QUASAR vs GREEN LANTERN

This weeks Versus poll pits Wendell Vaughn AKA Quasar against Hal Jordan better known as the Green Lantern

This one I see as a bit of a tough call to tell the truth. Wendell before getting the Quantum Bands was an agent of Shield while Hal was an Air Force Test pilot before gaining his power ring so we have to assume they both have a great deal of similar military training. I give a slight edge is power to the Quantum Bands since they grant the ability to manipulate and control other energy sources and they ability to teleport. On the other hand I give an edge to Lantern in the experience department. In the end I am going to give the Win to Green Lantern due to the experience edge though personally I prefer Quasar as a character.

So who do you think wins this one, let us know in the comments below what your choice is and way!

  1. Glad you managed to keep this one going, Kaldath.

    I always thought the Power Rings had a bit more versatility than the Quantum Bands, so I would give this one to Hal. Provided, of course, that he had a full charge on his ring, because this fight might take a while.

  2. Yeah. I (and 23 other silent voters) vote for Hal. He is incredibly imaginative and versatile with that power ring. The Quantum bands MAY be more powerful (big IF), but I don’t see Quasar walking away with this one.

    I could have been persuaded otherwise, but the only 3 people that voted for Quasar didn’t feel the need to express their reasons here….

    At least this time, the opinions (as little a number as we have of them) back up the overall poll result. ;)

  3. I was looking at the Marvel and DC databases online before I posted this poll comparing the Powers of both the Ring and the Band and see that they both pretty much do the same exact things except that the Bands Allow for Teleportation and direct adsorption and manipulation of most energies except for magic. Also the Quantum bands do not need to be re-charged, this is why I give the power edge to Quasar however I still think Hal wins it on pure combat ability and experience.

  4. I had no clue who/what Quasar or his Quantum Bands were/are, which is part of the problem that Marvel had(and may still have)
    they don’t know how to boost their second stringers into the next tier. Marvel has more characters, but in a world that wide some get lost.
    That is why I voted GL.

  5. UH! 44 to 8 in favor of GL. Way to (NOT) voice your opinion there Quasar camp. :P

  6. Worf:

    I don’t think everyone knows to look at the right-hand column for the “Recent Posts” and “Recent Comments.” They might be under the assumption that the blog is completely shut down.

    Hope that changes with the announcements that HammerKnight is taking over Character Challenges, Kaldath has the Versus poll, and djuby is sponsoring Pop Quizzes! Makes me want to dance! Well, I can’t dance… and there’s no mosh pit… so I’ll just hum and tap my feet.

    (Yes, Hal Jordan would totally whoop Quasar.)

  7. This is an age old debate amongst us Quasar fans.

    As someone above mentioned, Quasar’s quantum-bands can absorb and manipulate anything that falls under the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes cosmic energy. However, does Hal’s ring energy fall within that? If so, there’s really nothing that Hal could do against Quasar, save a physical confrontation; however, Quasar is trained in Ju-Jitsu (yeah, before it was “cool,” and the bands give him enhanced strength).

    Yes, Quasar also has an unlimited supply of quantum-energy from the Quantum Zone, and he can also teleport in and out of the Q-Zone as well — in addition to using it as a dumping ground to trap foes. In essence if he got a hold of Hal, he could trap him in the Q-Zone theoretically forever.

    Another bonus for Quasar is that he has a cosmic abract on his side, Epoch, the offspring of the 8-billion-year-old Eon, who first gave Quasar the Quantum-Bands as well as the mantle of Protector of the Universe (gave Captain Marvel POTU role as well). Epoch has cosmic awareness (contrary to recent Quasar appearances, Quasar does not have this) and would be able to communicate and help out Quasar with advice as needed.

    Similar to Hal Jordan, Quasar also has a strong sense of will power. He’s actually been described as having a stronger will than both the Silver Surfer and Beta Ray Bill, cosmic power houses in their own right. Now is that greater’s than Hal’s?

    Quasar can also quantum-jump. This is how Quasar travels through space. Off the top of my head, I can’t recall just how far, but it’s far, lol.

    Quasar can also make constructs similar to Hal. They are pretty strong: withstood Wolverine’s Adamantium, the force of the Hulk, etc.

    Hal Jordan would have a tougher time than most here seem to think. Obviously GL is a lot more popular, which is why the poll could be so one-sided.

  8. Hal Jordan gets knocked unconscious by anything yellow in the immediate vicinity that isn’t a Sinestro Corps ring construct. Seriously. Go look at any entry regarding Hal Jordan on the Asorbiscon if you doubt. QED Quasar wins by TKO.

  9. Just as an FYI everyone, I will be moving the Versus polls to Tuesdays Starting this coming Tuesday. I understand that I will be launching this new poll before this one closes but my schedule works better on Tuesdays then Fridays and the only reason I posted the first on on Friday is I wanted to give you fine people something to do here on the Blog until all the contests went live!
