Poll Position: Hawkman vs Archangel

This weeks poll position is going to be a classic verses poll. I’d like to know who you think would win a fight between Hawkman and Archangel.  Besides the various skills and abilities of the two combatants this is also a battle between  Nth metal and Organic Steel which is why I choose Archangel for this poll even though he has since reverted to Angel in the comics.

**********

Last weeks poll position “The Jokes On You” I asked which version of TV or Movie Joker either Animated or live action you liked best and based on your votes the WINNER is: Mark Hamill  with Heath Ledger coming in a very close second!

SO that’s it, please take a moment to vote in the current poll and leave a comment below about either the results of last weeks poll, or who you think should win this weeks ( OR BOTH!! )

  1. Archangel’s survival in this fight would rely solely on if he could get Hawkman’s weapons off of him, otherwise its gonna be a mace to the face for WWIII.

  2. It depends on witch weapons Hawkman uses if he used the Hawkworld weapons and armor Kartar might stand a chance against the razor feather attack.

  3. Which version of Hawkman are we talking about here? There are several. Either way, he gets my vote.

    For argument’s sake, let’s say it’s Carter Hall, the most prominent version.

    First off, while I haven’t been able to find his exact age, one would assume Angel is in his mid to late 20’s, if not younger. Carter, on the other hand has been around a bit longer, thanks to the Nth metal, which causes him to reincarnate when he is killed. His first life dates back to Ancient Egypt, one Prince Khufu, making him a few thousand years old. During his life, he has trained as a knight, a gunfighter and even a Pinkerton detective. He has a vast wealth of combat experience and tactics to draw from, much more so than Warren.

    Second- Abilities:

    Carter’s Nth metal enhancements grant him enhanced strength and durability as well as accelerated healing and enhanced vision (he can apparently count the flapping of the wings of a hummingbird) , which puts him AT LEAST on par with Angel. I’m not sure what his speed is, but I’d say it’s enough to keep up with his opponent. He’s also agile enough to outmanoeuvre fighter planes ( JSA Returns, don’t remember the issue) so he shouldn’t have too much trouble avoiding Angel’s needles.

    Finally the weapons: Carter and medieval weapons go together like bangers and mash. He wields a mean mace but can also use an axe and a sword/shield combo. Even if those aren’t enough to pound Pretty-Polly Worthington’s face in, he still has one more trick up his sleeve.
    Or more accurately AS his sleeve: The Claw of Horus.

    He doesn’t use it often, but it’s a legit weapon. It’s powered by earth’s magnetic core and packs a punch that can floor Superman.

    Seriously, check this bad boy out.

    Now admittedly, Angel has the edge in terms of ranged attacks, as Hawkie is primarily melee, but I reckon he can easily close the gap.

    So yeah, all my vote are belong to Hawkman.

  4. All versions of Hawkman have survived, defeated, incarcerated and outright vanquished creatures worse than enhanced-mutant Archangel in one issue. ‘Nuff… dead? I think not.

  5. Oh, and thank you Nate for the awesome page/point >:D

    Oh, and by the way? Archangel has access to the team jet… Carter has his own Starship! Hawkman, by a few orders of magnitude… ;)

  7. “Essentially…I just hit you with the planet.”

    Good call Nate, if there was any doubt before, i think that page shows how out of his league Archangel is here.
