Civil War: Team Cap vs. Team Iron Man - a comparison of damage done (Pre-Siberia)
After reading some posts I probably shouldn’t have been reading
- I decided to put together a little something - like a spreadsheet of sorts on
damage and attacks done by each team. For the sake of accuracy, I am including
everyone and EVERYTHING (pre-Siberia, which warrants a post of its own). Let me
know if I missed anything. This was difficult – especially since the fight in
Leipzig has so many people and everything was moving so quickly. It also doesn’t include Lagos (again, that warrants a separate analysis). I also attempted to keep the ethical debate out of it entirely and tried to stick to the actual facts.
Team Iron Man
Iron Man – fights WS during his rampage (sonic attack and hand to hand); Leipzig: blocks Clint and Wanda’s retreat with missiles (no damage done); fights Steve (hand to hand, why?); minor confrontation with Sam; minor confrontation with Clint; expels Ant-Man from armor; minor confrontation with Sam (repulsors, don’t seem to hit); brings Giant-Man down with War Machine and Spidey; shoots Sam with repulsor post-battle.
T’Challa - repeatedly attacks Bucky in Bucharest and Leipzig;
fights Steve in Leipzig (both instances, vibranium claws and martial arts
attack) – visibly more violent against Bucky (obviously); fight with Clint
(martial arts and claws)
War Machine – not sure how I feel about the electric bat thing
(not crazy about the “sorry, Cap, this won’t kill you but it won’t tickle
either) – although in the end, it doesn’t hit Steve; apparent confrontation
with Sam (not very clear); bullet bombardment against Giant-Man, sonic waves
against Giant Man, more bombardment against Giant Man (bullets etc.); sonic
waves against Wanda Maximoff, brings Giant-Man down with Iron Man and Spidey.
Vision - overpowers Clint in the Avengers compound (physical
strength, next to no damage done); vibranium body attack against Giant Man; attempts
to block Bucky and Steve’s escape by bringing down tower; shoots Rhodey out of
the sky while attempting to down Sam Wilson (energy blast).
Spider-man: de-shielding Cap; fights Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes
in Leipzig (limited physical damage); throws item at Bucky (return throw),
webbing (the Falcon jetpack – causes Falcon to crash – possible contusions,
although none really show, the glass should have at least scratched him – comic
fighting at its finest) and fall: both Falcon and Bucky; fights Steve (webbing
up and some classical punching and kicking), fight with Giant-Man (webbing and
kicking), brings Giant-Man down with War Machine and Iron Man.
Natasha Romanov: fights Bucky during his Winter Soldier rampage (hand to hand combat);
fights Ant-Man in Leipzig (hand to hand and Widow Bites); fights Clint; Widow Bites against T'Challa.
Honestly, did the team actually think that would go differently? Ray stopped talking to Mick in favor of Nate, Stein pretty much told Mick that he only helped him because he was afraid of him, I think almost all of Jax’s interactions with Mick this season were put downs, not sure Nate ever really talked to Mick outside the first few episodes, same with Sara once she became Captain and Rip never really tired with Mick. Amaya was the only one who tried and even that died down once she got with Nate. They have been setting this up for most of the season and no one should have been surprised (this was something similar to the lead up that happened in Marooned). Snart knows Mick so well that he knew exactly what buttons to push, which is why the hallucination version said such similar things, Mick was already feeling like this episodes ago. Mick picked the easy way out by going with the Legion but he also picked the option that he knew had someone that cared about him. I think the next episode will be very interesting as they try to change the new reality.
and it turns out that clint, who has been humming christmas carols for weeks now, doesnt actually know any of the real lyrics, and has just been making them up as he goes along. this is his latest masterpiece:
Winter Soldier’s Gunnin’ You Down (To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)
You better watch out, you better not
You’ll probably bleed out, I’m
tellin’ you why
Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you
He’s got a hit list, he’s
starting a fight
He’s clenching his fist, it’s
shiny and bright
Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
His aim is really fucking good and
he’s gonna assassinate
