Ultimate TKO Tuesday: Poison Ivy Vs Swamp Thing!

Happy Tuesday Novas! After a long hiatus with the TKO battle series, I’m brining it back for Tuesdays! The inaugural Tuesday match will begin with Poison Ivy Vs Swamp thing! For anyone new to this series, in TKO battle matches I pair 2 characters (most of the time from different realms or universes) and create a fan fiction battle how I would imagine it. If you like this series, feel free to request characters that you want to see battle it out!

Swamp Thing is tired of the DC Universe! He’s heard about the Dark Knight trying to “Clean” up Gotham. 598dec4f164b69e847b5e9c804c311e4  While his intentions are noble, now he has to worry about a certain “Penguin” and Ice Man murking up his swamp waters. The new “tenants” arrived about a month ago with their schemes and even dared to freeze some of the foliage in their area to create a decadent ice facility. “I will not let anymore of this eco system die off.” swamp thing broods. “Something has to be done and the Dark Knight must be held responsible.”

“Ya know, Gotham’s been a little quiet lately, huh?” Harley says. She walks around the house running her finger tips across the counter.  harley  “Yea… a little too quiet if you ask me.” Ivy responds. She walks through the darkness as if she was modeling for Home & Garden. “Where is Batman anyway?” Ivy asks. Harley screams “Doll, Look!” Ivy runs over to the TV. The Breaking News… Batman has been abducted by a strange green monster. “Well we’ve lucked out.” Harley says laying across the sofa chair with her head over the arm rest. Ivy’s gaze is hardened at the screen. “Guess we don’t have to worry about the Bat anymore. He’s gone and got himself kidnapped.” Harley continues. The room is eerily quiet. “Doll?” Harley asks. She falls onto the floor and looks around. “Doll? Ivy? … Now where did she go?” A trail of flower petals leads out the mansion.

“You have destroyed my home and now I will destroy you!” Swamp Thing says to an unconscious Batman. As he goes to turn on the poisonous gas, a poisoned rose needle pins his hand to the wall. “Tisk, Tisk babe… don’t you know not to touch what doesn’t belong to you?” Ivy says as she walks into the room. Her long, flowing red locks cascade down her back. “Ivy…” Swamp Thing acknowledges. “What are you doing here?” he says. “You have something of mines and I’ve come to collect it.” Ivy’s gaze catches the Bat’s limp body. “I trust, he isn’t dead.” she snarks. Ivy uses the vines in Swamp Thing’s home to start unlocking the container Batman is held in. “He has upset the balance of my swamp! Banishing these villains here to destroy our eco system. You of all people should understand why I have to do what I have to do.” Swamp Thing says. Ivy smirks and nods her head. “Oh I understand and if it was anyone else I’d leave you be…. but as I said you have something that belongs to me and I’ve come to collect him.” Ivy snaps her fingers and the vines wrap up Swamp Thing. “This’ll only take a sec.” she says winking and walking past him. “You can’t have him!”

Swamp thing enrages and breaks through the constricted vines. He launches a devastating punch at Ivy sending her flying across the room.

Ivy rubs her head. “Ouch, is this the fight you really want?” she says brushing herself off. “Ye…” before Swamp Thing can finish his sentence another vine is smacking him in the face. Swamp Thing turns on the poisonous gas. “Ummm 2 things… I’m immune and you’re crazy.” Ivy laughs. Swamp Thing smiles at the plant Goddess. “The Gas isn’t for you.” Ivy’s eyes are ghost as she realizes Thing’s intention. She jumps to grab Batman but is quickly tossed to the side of the room by Swamp Thing. “Stop!” she screams. “hahahaha” a hoggish voice laughs through the green gas filling up the room. “What is this?” Ivy asks, staring at Swamp Thing. She can tell by the befuddled look that it wasn’t his call. “Allow me to introduce myself… I’m Hoggish Greedly and I have a proposition for you.”   1761523-hoggish01  The silhouette of a giant pig emerges with The Penguin and Mr. Freeze behind him.

“What’s going on?” Thing says. “Don’t you get it?” Ivy responds rising to her feet with tears in her eyes. “This was a set up from the beginning.” she says. Swamp Thing nods. “Since you 2 have embraced your dark side, some of us for a second tie huh Ivy? I think that we should become partners.” Greedly continues. “I refuse.” Swamp Thing says and turns off the gas. “Me as well.” Ivy chimes in. “Oh well it wasn’t a request!” Greedly continues and signals to Mr. Freeze. “No!” Ivy screams and uses her vines to push Swamp Thing out of the way of Mr. Freezes’ Ice Beam. She succeeds but is soon frozen herself. The lack on sunlight has weakened her. “Let her go.” Swamp Thing yells throwing toxic punches at his enemies. To no avail he is frozen after the brawl. The startled face of Poison Ivy and the defeated look of Swamp Thing is loaded unto a flatbed and carried out of the room. “I have big plans for you 2, big plans.” Greedly says. As they leave the room an unconscious Batman balls up his fist.

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Absorbtion Assailants (Rogue Vs Android 18).

Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s Thursday TKO battle will be between Rogue from X-Men and Android 18 from Dragonball Z. Every Thursday we pit 2 characters from different games, movies, etc against each other to find out who would be the ultimate winner!  Check out last time’s TKO battle between Scorpion and Master Shredder here! Without further adieu, let’s get into Rogue Versus Android 18!

Rogue is investigating the disappearance of her mutant students from Xavier’s School For Special School. 3 Of them have gone missing in the last week, no trace, no note, no nothing. Rogue recalls overhearing Amy, one of her students talking about an amusement park that caters to mutants. “Sounds like a good place to start.” Rogue says. She tracks down the address of this new park and with a confused look she says “The Bermuda Triangle.”  rogue

Rogue arrives to the Bermuda Triangle location and spots an island in the distance. She can smell popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs on the horizon, “I must be close.” She says. Finally Rogue can see the outline of a roller coaster and ferris wheel in the distance. She flies over and lands at the gates of the park.”Cellebration Park, huh?” She walks in. The park looks operational as the lights and music are all playing. The ground is littered with trash from the concession stands. No one is around so Rogue does the only logical action, she starts calling out the names of her former students “No Answer.” Rogue walks past the turnstiles and into the first attraction that she can see, a fun house. Before she can get too far, she she’s an image in one of the mirrors, it’s girl. “Hey have you seen…” Before she could finish a pink ball of energy comes crashing through the mirrors and blows Rogue out of the fun house.

Rogue peers up over the girl floating over her. Her hair is golden like the sun and her skin is kissed by the milk of cows, she has blue eyes and she’s wearing a weird type of clothing. her pants are black and she has a white long sleeved shirt underneath a black vest. “Who are you?” Rogue asks as she stands to wipe the debris from her brow. “You can call me 18 and you can call me master.” The woman says as she lets out a maniacal laugh. A smirk of confidence flashes across Android 18’s face. Rogue lunges at the assailant throwing punches her way. “What have you done with my students?” Rogue yells and punches 18 in the stomach. 18 Pushes off of Rogue and catches her breath. “I see you’re not going to be an easy opponent, but when I absorb your powers, I will be unstoppable.” 18 says. She blasts another ball of energy at Rogue who dodges. Rogue grabs the right arm of 18 and can feel some of 18’s energy transfer over to her. “What are you doing? Get off of me!” 18 yells and kicks the leg of Rogue. “What’s wrong? Think you’re the only one that can siphon energy?” Rogue says.

Android 18 grabs Rogue’s hand and turns to blast her. Rogue flies back into a cart of candy apples. She gets  up and punches 18 in the face. The next thing she sees is a horror in itself. Android 18’s face has morphed and now she has 2 green things appears on top of her head. “What the heck are you?” Rogue screams. “There’s no need in hiding this now” 18’s voice got deeper.  cell2 Rogue can see the change in 18’s body to reveal the true culprit. “They call me Cell.” He says and flies in close to hit Rogue in the face. Cell grabs Rogue and tosses her into the bumper cars. “Hahaha, I thought you would be worth my time.” Cell says.   cell He hits Rogue with a blast of energy that sends her into a cart of games. Rogue is bruised and battered and now she knows what has happened to her students. “Rogue get up, get up!” a familiar voice says. Rogue is barely able to turn and see her student Amy trapped in a cage of wires. “Amy, what has happened to you?” Rogue says. “We were taken and now our abilities are being drained from us.” Amy replies. Rogue can see that Amy looks bad as if she had been torn apart. “I’ll get you out of here” Rogue says. She tries to stand but is unable to make it to her feet. “You’re too late.” Amy says with tears rolling down here face. Amy falls over but before the end she touches Rogue’s hand. “I’d rather it be you…” are the final words Rogue hears from Amy.

Cell is floating in the air laughing. “This world of theirs is nothing compared to what I have endured.” Cell says. Rogue blasts Cell out of the sky with a ball of energy. “You monster!” she screams. The enraged Rogue battles Cell, punching him, kicking him and blasting him to the ground . Renders Cell immobile thanks to her student Amy’s powers. “This is for my students and all of the mutants that you have hurt!” Rogue yells. She blasts Cell one last time and watches as his body explodes. “This is for Amy.” Rogue says and she falls to the floor crying. imageedit_1_5678568027

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Nasty Ninjas Scorpion Vs Master Shredder!

Happy Thursday all! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s Ultimate TKO Thursday battle where we pit 2 opponents from different series, comics, video games, etc against each other in an all out battle to see who will reign supreme. This week I’ve taken the request of Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek’s from last week’s battle (Final Freeze: Subzero vs Mr. Freeze) request to see Scorpion in a TKO Battle! Scorpion is an experienced marital artist and a pennacle of the Mortal Kombat franchise. After mulling over the options, I have come to the conclusion that a great match up for him will be none other than Master Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Let’s jump into a quick synopsis of their backgrounds and get into the battle!

Master Shredder or Oroku Saki is one of the main villains in TMNT. He started as a trusted friend of Master Splinter and delve into his own practice of starting a ninja army know as the Foot Clan. Some of Shredders defining features are his size, speed, strength, intelligence and mastery of Ninjitsu.

Scorpion or Hanzo Hasashi is a ninja warrior who appears in the Mortal Kombat series. Most notably known for his Kunai Spear that shoots from his hands, Scorpion is also a master in Ninjitsu and fights using fire and flames. He is a resurrected ninja that battles his demons which each fight. He is quick, agile and deadly when he becomes enraged.

“When are you finally going to rid Earth of those pesky Turtles so that I can rule?” krang Krang says. The clank of Shredder’s boots against the marbled floor of the Technodrome is worse than the sound of nails against a chalkboard. “It’s hard to think that you can rule anything with the amount of times that I’ve had to save you personally, dear friend.” Shredder responds. He stops a mere 10 feet away from the brain known as Krang. Shredder stands firm with his piercing gaze directed towards the alien. “How dare you speak to me with such insolence, you should know your place.” Krang responds. Shredder’s gaze turns deadly, his fist are now tightened into a ball with the veins sprouting out from both sides. “I’ve had enough…” he starts as he leaps into the air head on towards his once ally, right fist extended with maximum strength towards his target. The last thing Shredder sees is the smirk on Krangs face as he steps aside and opens a dimensional portal. Before long Shredder awakens in a dark, mysterious land. He dusts himself off and rises to find another ninja a few feet away dressed in scorpion3 yellow and black. Before he could ask where he was the assailant strikes an impressive martial arts pose, “Uhhuh” Shredder says. “I guess this is the dimension that Krang was mentioning last week, this is OutWorld.”

Scorpion’s stance looks very familiar to Shredder, it’s very similar to his own fighting style of Ninjitsu, yet it is tweaked somehow. “I’ll have you know that I am a master of Ninjitsu.” Shredder says as he copies the stance. He notices that Scorpion’s eyes are bright white. The sky rings with the drums of the thunder cascading around the 2 ninjas, it’s almost as if Raiden had played the symphony of the skies for this occasion. Scorpion sizes up his opponent, who is standing with blades lined along his forearms and top of his helmet. Scorpion finally breaks his stance and walks to the left of his opponent in a circular motion. Shredder takes off his purple cape to reveal the tight ninja suit that he is wearing. It is flexible enough to allow Shredder to use his full range of motion while fighting. Shredder counters by walking to the right of Scorpion, both men checking to see who will make the first move. After about 2 and a half rotations Scorpion stops and bows to his opponent bring his hands back to the Shaolin Fist stance. Shredder bows back and launches into battle with quick strikes of his fist.

Scorpion matches Shredder’s aggressive strikes and tries to counter with his own barrage of punches. Both opponents are true masters of martial arts and therefore are able to quickly dodge and counter attack each other instantly. Finally a blow hits it’s target! Shredder use the blades on his forearm to pierce the cloth of Scorpion’s Shirt. Scorpion seemingly increasing in rage shoves back Shredder and drops to the ground to initiate a quick leg sweep. The taller Shredder falls to to the floor. Shredder stands up and releases his Steel Claws . Shredder makes his way closer to Scorpion but after a few steps he finds himself dodging a speared rope coming from Scorpion’s palm. The next round of the spear has Shredder swiping at the Spear with his Steel Claws.

Scorpion throws fireballs at is opponent barely scorching the wrist of Shredder. As Shredder leaps into the air to attack Scorpion counters with a backflip kick straight into the jaw of Shredder. As Shredder stumbles he falls to one knee and and lunges with his claws at Scorpion piercing his chest. The 2 masters fall back into the quick firing hand to hand combat. Scorpion spins and misses his punch but lands a kick to the shin. Shredder grabs Scorpions right leg and pulls him to the ground, following up with quick punches to his face. Scorpion spits a hot, burning acid on Master Shredder to make him flinch and fall over. Scorpion kick flips up and starts stomping scorp-kick on Shredder before hitting 3 backflips away from his opponent. Shredder flips up to his feet and wipes the blood from his jaw. “You are a worthy opponent, but I’m afraid that this duel has come to an end.” His Steel Claws are ready to end the fight. He takes a step towards Scorpion and feels a tingle in his right arm. The Kunai Spear from Scorpion’s palm had caught him. Shredder yells in fury, “Get Over Here!!!!” Scorpion says and pulls Shredder close for the fatality.

The blood starts to pour out of his body and light up the floor of Outworld. Yet, it looks too orange to be blood. It’s not, it’s the lava flowing out of Scorpions body. When he pulled Shredder towards him with the Kunai, he never took into account that Shredder’s left Steel Claw was left uninhibited. Shredder had used his body as a diversion, he was caught by the spear to throw his opponent off guard. The Steel Claw slashed open the belly of the beast and sent him spiraling to the ground. Shredder, bruised and bloodied, bows to his opponent. “Now to take care of that Krang!” He says before taking 3 steps and also tumbling to the ground.

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Final Freeze!

Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks & Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s multi-verse TKO battle where we pit 2 characters from different games, universes, series etc against each other in an all out battle for supremacy! This week we will feature Mr. Freeze from Batman and Subzero from Mortal Kombat. Let’s get ready to rumbleeeeeeee.

In other versions of Ultimate TKO Thursday I would go over stats or abilities. Since I am pitting a comic/movie character against a video game/movie character I will instead provide a brief synopsis of their history/abilities then jump into the battle: Ready?

Mr. Freeze is a DC Villain from the Batman series that was a formidable opponent for the caped crusader. He started as Dr. Victor Fries a scientist employed at Wayne Enterprises (I feel like a lot of villains worked for Wayne Enterprises lol) who (according to your source material) pretty much failed in his mission to save his wife Nora. As a frenzied, mess he vowed to take revenge on those that he believes caused his freak accident and killed his wife. Because of the accidents with his freeze experiments, Dr. Fries has to wear a suit that keeps his body temperature at the sub zero level. This suit consequently also bestows upon Fries added strength and durability.

Subzero is one of the cornerstones of the Mortal Kombat franchise. According to lore the original Subzero named Bi Han met his untimely end by another cornerstone; Scorpion. After his demised the Sub Zero we’ve seen in past titles has been his brother Kuai Liang. Both brothers are a race from Outworld known as Cryomancers and they are able to manipulate ice. Subzero is also trained in the martial arts and can fuse his ice moves with his lightning quick strikes for a deadly combination.

The Battle:

Freeze points his new weapon at the cold assassin. ” I hear that you’re some sort of ice wizard.” Freeze laughs. Sub zero moves his head from left to right and Freeze can hear the crack of the ninjas neck. Subzero’s glare becomes constant as he builds up the energy in his palms. Freeze can feel the temperature change and the see the balls of ice form in Subzero’s hands. sub-1 Freeze starts firing his twin guns at Subzero launching frozen ice chunks and a freeze beam at his opponent. Subzero counters with dodging the ice chunks and launching his own barrage of icicles at the freeze beam detouring its accuracy. “Ah, you’re a clever one aren’t you, no matter.” Freeze says as he starts firing again. This time the ice chunks hit its target. Freeze watches as the particles of a once frozen Subzero decorate the the sky and fall to the ground. “That was anti climatic.” He responds. Freeze uses his immense strength to through a boulder on what is left of Subzero.

Subzero appears behind Freeze using Tombstone Teleport sub-3, that allows him to freeze himself and fall back unto the floor, and freezes the floor below Freeze’s foot using the ground ice attack. The ice clone had distracted his opponent and now he was sliding across the floor. Subzero starts attacking furiously throwing his ice clones, ice burst and hitting Freeze with a Frost Hammer. You would think that this ninja was a part of the NHL! “What is this?” Freeze says as he can start to feel his durability fading, the hits of ice are starting to hurt. “How is this happening?” Freeze says. He manages to maneuver himself onto his belly and starts firing the freeze beam again. imageedit_1_2868695002 Subzero is able to successful dodge all of Freeze’s follow up attacks. The ninja uses Frosty to completely freeze the Dr. in a block of ice. He doesn’t say a word, only drags the ice block to his cooler display case with the rest of his conquests. FATALITY!!!!! imageedit_3_9219357445

What did you think of the battle? Who would win in your version of the TKO Battle? Would you want to be Subzero’s trophy? Let’s talk TKO?

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Billionaire Battle!

Bruce Wayne knows every inch of his company Wayne Enterprises. He knows when the finance reports are released, when each of his employees are on vacation or in the break room and he even knows how to make sure that budget cuts will never lead to layoffs for his employees. Yes, Bruce is very intuitive and intelligent. But how could he have ever predicted what would happen next? Wayne Enterprises is a well oiled machine that makes millions upon millions each year. As Bruce exits the board room with a grimace look about his face. The poised businessman starts to feel a rage that he has only felt during his vigilante role as the Dark Knight. His alter ego protects the streets of Gotham from the vile, disgusting, nefarious characters that only seem to thrive in Gotham. How could he tell his board members that for the first time, Wayne Enterprises was in the red. They were no longer a top contender on the Forbes list of Fortune 500 companies, no they were hemorrhaging money due to a competitor who has taken over their must lucrative markets. Wayne Enterprises, according to 2017’s current quarter is playing second fiddle to Stark Enterprises!

The Background: Over the course of the last 3 years, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark have alternated awards for the most successful company, Man of the Year and Community Service Project of the Month. bat “How can that arrogant jerk be nominated for anything?” Bruce says as he paces around his study. “This is unacceptable” Bruce says as he peers over his right shoulder into the cracked door of his room. Bruce sets his glass on the desk and walks toward the secret door.

Tony Stark wakes up to excellent news! “Finally Stark Enterprises is back on top where it belongs.” he says. The newspaper Tony is looking at is then folded and sat on the edge of his table. “J.A.R.V.I.S! Do you I have any new emails?” tony-stark-2p Tony asks. He takes a bite out of his toast and chugs the cup of orange juice. “You have 3 new email messages. Should I review them now?” J.A.R.V.I.S responds. “Who are they from?” Tony replies. “One message is from your Board of Directors congratulating you on this Quarters Results, the next is from AWI Cruise Lines, Subject: You are a Winner! and the last is from Wayne Enterprises Subject line: Invitation.” J.A.R.V.I.S lists. “Wayne Enterprises?” Tony says. “I wonder what this can be? J.A.R.V.I.S read the email from Wayne Enterprises.” Tony says. “You are cordially invited to a meeting of the minds. Tony Stark, we have rivaled each other for too long. Let’s have a formal meeting next week at 8pm in Gotham. Oh and bring your suit… Iron Man! Signed Bruce. I do believe that you have been challenged sir.” J.A.R.V.I.S. finishes. “I do believe you are right.” Tony says as he walks over towards his new suit. “I do believe it is.”

The Battle: Ironman man rest on top of Wayne Enterprises waiting for Batman to appear. “I mean if you’re going to invite someone to a duel, shouldn’t you be punctual?” he says as he looks through the skyline of Gotham City. Iron Man 2 movie image He can see the bat symbol illuminating the sky “Pfft, how tacky. Talk about an ego-maniac” stark says. “Look who’s talking”the deep, gloomy voice responds. Stark turns towards the sound and sees Batman walking out of the shadows. “Ah, there you are. So what is this about?” Stark asks. batman Batman tilts his head to side and opens his left palm. A Batring slides from under his suit and he responds “There’s only room for 1 vigilante and I have decided that you’re too arrogant to be him.” He tosses the Batring at Ironman who swiftly knocks it away with his arm. “Cute, but um with toys like that I think that I will take the number one spot. Plus this whole dreary thing is not working for me, could you smile every once in a while?” Stark notices the brooding Bat smirks and lunges at him.

The 2 begin to spar on the roof of Wayne Enterprises. Batman’s abilities in hand to hand combat are far superior to Ironman’s, however, J.A.R.V.I.S makes sure that Stark is staying afloat in this fight. “You’ve really been pumping the iron haven’t you?” Stark says. “You should really pay more attention to your opponent instead of your wise cracking mouth!” Wayne says. Before Stark could muster up another witty comeback Batman follows a 3 hit punch combo with a swift leg sweep bring the Iron hero down. Batman towers above him with an odd ball shaped item in his hand. “I can see that I have won, so you should find new distributors for Stark Enterprises.” he says. Stark shakes his head and Batman replies “Have it your way.” tossing the sparkled ball on top of Ironman. Ironman shakes on the ground as the electromagnetic pulse takes over.

“Now that suit is useless” Batman says and walks toward the edge of the roof. “You know, I had a feeling that you would do something like this?” Stark says in a rather chipper mood. Wayne quickly turns around to see that Ironman was no longer immobile. “That’s why I changed the suit. That EMP didn’t damage anything, you see I’m smarter than you.” Stark proceeds. He taps Batman on the shoulder “Checkmate!” The Bat’s eyes are now wider than the moon and index1 Ironman blasts him off of the roof. “You know he wasn’t a bad guy, moody yes, but not bad. J.A.R.V.I.S let’s go home.” Stark says. In a blink of an eye his thrusters are propelling him into the air and back towards Stark Enterprises.

Meanwhile Batman is hanging off the edge with his grappling hook. “We shall meet again Stark, we shall meet again!”

What did you think of the battle? Did you agree with the winner? Who wins in your mind out of Ironman and Batman? Let’s Talk TKO!

Ultimate Thursday TKO: Wicked Witches!

Happy Thursday All! It’s that time again for the match of the week on Ultimate Thursday TKO where I will pit 2 characters from unrelated games, movies, realms etc. against each other in a fan fiction battle to see who would take the crown as the champion of Ultimate TKO! This week I’m going to switch it up and pit 2 of the wickedest, most powerful witches in pop culture: Zelena the wicked witch of the west from Once Upon A Time and Bellatrix Voldemort’s right hand woman from Harry Potter!

Instead of listing their abilities (because they’re no video game characters) I will instead provide brief description of their history and magic. With that comparison out the way, we can sit back and enjoy the match. We will start with someone that everyone should know, the Wicked With of the West, Zelena.

So remember that good ole tale of the Wizard of Oz with Dorothy and her friends battling the Wicked witch of the West? Well Zelena is that witch, only she is the adaptation of the character portrayed in the Once Upon A Time television show. Zelena’s powers in the show were one of the most powerful in the land.

  • Conjuration
  • Healing Spells
  • Heart-ripping
  • Magical Immobilization
  • Pyrokinesis
  • Shapeshifting
  • Telekinesis
  • Teleportation

Now let’s take a look at the infamous Bellatrix’s abilities.

  • Dark arts Mastery
  • Non Verbal Magic
  • Expert Duelist
  • Occlumency/ Legilimency
  • Unbreakable Vow Bonder

Battle: After Zelena returns to the zelena_312 land of Oz with the magic mirror that she has always desired, she begins to ask it questions. Just like the Evil Queen she wants to know who her competition is, yet she’s not asking about beauty or being fair. No Zelena has no interests in those type of answers, Zelena is convinced that she is the strongest and most talented with to have ever lived. “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the most powerful witch of them all>” Zelena says. The mirror trembles and slowly starts to display an image, Zelena yells at the top of her lungs clasping the mirror with all of her might. The acute, piercing screech is enough to crack the glass of the mirror. “We will see about that?” she says as she prepares to Teleport. Zelena waves her wand above her head, while clinching her teeth in anger she says the incantation “Intera Telep Su Owkson London.” In a puff of green smoke she disappears.

Bellatrix bella wakes up unaware of her surroundings. She twists her wrist and gasps at the sight of her fully formed body. She can sense that someone else is with her so she let’s out a maniacal laugh “I guess I should say thank you, but you have no idea what you have just resurrected” she says. Zelena walks in front of her opponent, “No need to worry, you’ll be gone again soon enough!” she smirks. Zelena stares in envy of Bellatrix “pfft I can hardly believe that you are the are powerful witch, you look kind of mad.” Zelena says. Bellatrix rises with wand in hand, never breaking the gaze of her opponent. Zelena is waiting for a reply, yet there’s not one on the way. Bellatrix’s right arm shakes and Zelena looks into her eyes feeling something that she never has before… Fear.  The feral appearance of Bellatrix as she cracks her neck resembling a wild beast has the hairs on Zelena’s head standing on in. “And you smell like a muggle, this will indeed be fun.” Bellatrix says. Before Zelena knows it burst of magical energy is thrusting her towards a tree.

Zelena concentrates and pivots forward shooting fire towards her ghastly opponent. She follows the fire up with a spell to immobilize Bellatrix’s magical ability. REBECCA MADER With her competition restrained she gets closer “that was too easy” she laughs. Bellatrix laughs with her but quickly that laugh turns into another intense stare. Creeped out Zelena knows its time to end this, she lights a fire under Bellatrix and walks away. When she turns to have one last glance, she falls to the floor. Bellatrix had escaped! The last thing Zelena sees is the crashing of a wave unto the ground where she fell. It’s all too cliche’ yet the only words she could mutter were “I’m melting, I’m melting.” Bellatrix, soaring above her bella1 directs her wand towards the defeated witch and ignites a spell to combust Zelena. “The least I could do for the woman who resurrected me would be to put her out of her misery. Now where’s that Potter! We have unfinished business.”

Ultimate Thursday TKO: Crazy Carry

Hiya Gamers, Geeks and Friends and thank you for tuning in to another week of “Ultimate Thursday TKO.” We will put together an analysis of 2 characters from different video games to see who would be the winner (In my opinion) if they were to cross paths. This week I will be fulfilling a request from IgnitedMoth to feature Jinx (League Of Legends) versus Loki (Smite). Let’s start with their ability breakdown.

The request was to feature Jinx from League of Legends and I had to mull over in my head who would make a great match-up for her from Smite. Loki comes to mind because he is just as twisted and mischievous as Jinx, so why not let them battle it out. We will start with the challenger Loki. Loki is the mischievous, Trickster god who is bent on causing confusion and chaos wherever he goes. Loki’s roll is that of an assassin so his moves will focus on dealing significant damage to a single target. Loki’s abilities are as follows:

  • Behind You (Passive)- Loki deals increased damage when attacking an enemy
    from behind.
  • Vanish- Loki disappears in a puff of smoke gaining movement speed,
    immunity, increased damage and bleeding on any target hit.
  • Decoy- Loki deploys a decoy version of himself that taunts (mainly minions) before dealing damage in an explosion
  • Aimed Strike- Increased attack damage and slowing effects on the targeted enemy.
  • Assassinate- teleports and back stabs target doing damage and stunning.

What about Jinx? Jinx is a mayhem loving character with an insatiable craving to cause panic and destruction, who hates being bored. What other way to have fun and cause mischief then to light up her enemies with an arsenal of weapons. Her weapons cache consists of pistols, shock guns, explosives and her favorite mega rocket that will rival the stock of an army base. Her abilities are:

  • Get Excited (Passive)- Increased movement and attack speed when damaging an
    enemy or object that is destroyed within 3 seconds.
  • Switcheroo- Jinx’s basic attack switches between her Pow Pow minigun and Fishbones Rocket launcher.
  • Zap- Zapper shock pistol that damages, slows and reveals enemy.
  • Flame Choppers- Snare grenades that explode after 5 seconds igniting
    enemies and rooting.
  • Super Mega Death Rocket- ranged rocket gaining damage as it travels.
    damaging a single target and surrounding enemies.

The Battle: Loki hears about an interesting “Villain” running amuck in the city of Piltover. “Hmmm who is this interesting menace?” Loki says as he sits upon the throne of his latest conquest. “Being a king is boring, time to shake things up! (insert creepy, manic laugh here)” Loki arrives in Piltover just in time to watch a fleet of patrol cars speeding down the road. “Yup, I’m definitely in the right place.” he says as he follows. Before he knows it the fleet of cars in front of him are decorating the sky in a symphony of fire and debris. He dodges one of the car doors flying towards him “That was close” before feeling the thump of a rear-view mirror on his head. Loki falls to the ground and awakes to a a figure standing on top of the destruction holding a huge rocket launcher and smiling uncontrollably. “Ah, this is who I’m looking for!” He says and brushes himself off as he rises.

“Well, well well… who do we have hear?” Jinx asks as she is lining Loki up in her sights. “You don’t look like no officer around here.” she says. “You are mistaken child, I’m the great Loki and..” before Loki could finish Jinx blasts him with Zapper pistol. Loki’s body surges with the electroshock racing through his body. He smirks and vanishes. “What, where’d he go?” Jinx says as she looks around frantically. image_4-4 “Behind You!” Loki chuckles as he uses Assassinate! Due to his increase in damage Jinx stumbles a bit before jumping forward and pulling the Switcheroo. Firing rapidly at the spot where she was hit. As she touches down, Jinx tosses her Flame Choppers. When the smoke clears Loki is no where in sight. “Pfft, not as tough as he looks.” Jinx laughs. Loki pops Decoy and Jinx falls for it firing at will. The decoy explodes and Loki hits his 5 hit basic attack combination on Jinx. She falls to the floor. jix

“Guess I’ve traveled here for nothing.” Loki sighs. He looks at Jinx’s body sprawled on the concrete one last time before flipping a coin and taking flight away from the scene. “You can’t find good competition anywhere these days.” Loki says. He hears a whistling sound getting closer and closer. Loki stops mid flight and searches for the source of the noise. When he realizes the noise is coming from n=behind him its almost too late. Loki turns to see a Super Mega Death Rocket approaching and before he could make a sound… Jinx, still glaring through the crossair on her death rocket finally lowers the cannon to the ground when she see’s the fireworks in the air. “I love the 4th of July!” she laughs (it’s definitely February lol). Jinx tends to her wounds, reloads her weapons and prank calls the police department “Can I speak to Detective Vi?”. 5

Ultimate Thursday TKO!

Hiya Gamers, Geeks and Friends! Firstly, thank you for checking out the blog! Today I will be starting Ultimate Thursday TKO (duh) which will be a weekly segment that pits a League of Legends character against a Smite character for the ultimate MOBA showdown! I will present the arguments and have you the reader decide who would win that battle.Today’s showdown will be Bastet (Smite) versus Nidalee (LOL) so let’s Pounce into the action!

Lore- Bastet is the Egyptian Goddess of the Cats and daughter of the Sun god Ra. Nidalee is the Bestial Hunter raised by cougars in the Kumunga Jungle. From the lore alone we can start pointing out a few similarities between these 2 fierce feminine felines (say that 3 times fast!). Both have inherited primal traits from the cat and cougar. Bastet has a more domestic side, however her claws can come out when approached with danger while Nidalee has that raw, carnal persona from having to survive the deadly jungle.

Abilities- Let’s start  with Nidalee’s abilities. She has Prowl, Javelin Toss/Take down, Bushwhack/Pounce, Primal Surge/Swipe and Aspect of the Cougar. Aspect of the Cougar is an ability that allows Nidalee to transform into a Cougar which is why she has double abilities. The 1st part of her abilities are in human form and the other will be in primal cougar form. Here’s a quick overview of each skill:

  • Javelin Toss– Nidalee tosses her Javelin dealing magic damage. Takedown– The next attack deals additional damage
  • Bushwhack allows our champion to trap, damage and reveal it’s target. Pounce allows Nidalee to lunge in the targets direction dealing damage to nearby enemies
  • Primal Surge heals target allies and buffs attack speed. Swipe will allow the cougar to claw at her enemies in a target direction.

Now let’s take a look at Bastet’s abilities. Open Would, Pounce, Razor Whip, Declaw and Cat Call.

  • Open Wound is the passive that does additional DOT (damage over time) damage for 3 seconds after a target is hit.
  • Pounce allows the goddess to leap to a target location dealing damage and return back to the initial location within 4 seconds.
  • Razor Whip is a swipe move that causes bleed damage for 4 seconds.
  • Declaw allows Bastet to throw her dagger both slowing and damaging the target.
  • Cat Call is the ultimate that summons 3 large cats to attack and slow enemies.

Roles- Both characters are assassin’s due to their speed and critical hit potential so their roles are simple, Jungle. The assassins jump in and out of the Jungle dealing
high critical attack damage on a single target.

The Battle- Nidalee starts things off with a Javelin Throw that Bastet dodges by Pouncing in the air towards Nidalee. Nidalee counters with Bushwhack trapping Bastet. With the target trapped, Nidalee uses Aspect of the Cougar to transform and Pounce dealing damage.nidalee-run Bastet use Declaw after being hit slowing the cougar. With Nidalee slowed and taking DOT damage due to Open Wound Bastet uses Razor Whip which is met by Nidalee’s Takedown and Swipe. With both assassins wounded Nidalee Pounces towards Bastet again. Bastet also Pounces jumping over Nidalee and releasing her ultimate Cat Call to corral the cougar. About 3 seconds afterwards Bastet pounces back to her original position where Nidalee is swiping at the 3 large cats and finishes her opponent with Razor Whip.

Bastet towers over her opponent with only 1 large cat remaining as the victor with a bittersweet feeling of remorse. Bastet is the sworn ruler and protector of cats and even as Nidalee lies on the Jungle floor, she feels responsibility and sympathy for the cougar. Nidalee opens her eyes to find Bastet stroking her pelt and lets out a cry of respect. Nidalee returns to her feet on all fours, bows her head towards Bastet and walks back into the Kumunga Jungle from which she emerged. The great warrior has nothing to be ashamed of, a well fought battle leaves her with insight and a new friend.
