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: 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.
