“Hope you paid up on your health insurance.” “Try me.” Welcome to Animated Clash of Characters. The show where we put two fictional beings against each other in our animated arena of death. I’m Colin, guy behind me is Sean Wetsellar and the one beside him is Christian. He’s our animator, and he’s the who makes the magic happen. Now we’ve got a hell of a show for you this time. Marvel Comics own Iron Man, going up against the star of the Metroid game series, Samus Aran. It’s Samus. Shut up Sean. Sean as the reigning champ of this series, I know it’s 1-1 shut up. I’d like to go first on this episode. Now if you remember at the end of the last one I proposed Tony Stark, Iron Man, as my candidate. Billionaire, genius, superhero. If you don’t know who Iron Man is by now Sean you haven’t been to the movies in ten years. Now for the purposes of this fantasy fight. I’m only going to be considering the Iron Man we all know and love from the Marvel cinematic universe. After all we are talking about a character who made his comic book debut in 1963. For this animated clash of characters I’ll be unleashing three different Iron Man suits on your little intergalactic bounty hunter. First up, the first ever suit we see in the Marvel cinematic universe, ye old Mark I. Clunky, slow, and comparatively weak in the pantheon of Iron Man suits. Tony Stark might just be able to get the job done with this antique. Then there’s the Hulkbuster armor, the one you guys saw in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Don’t let the large frame fool you, this heavy duty modular armour packs one hell of a punch. And boasts a dizzying array of weapons. Not that Samus is even going to get this far, but finally I’m holding the Mark 50 from Infinity War in reserve. This hyper advanced suit is the first to utilize nanotechnology. It can self repair, and features repulsar cannons from I don’t know anywhere Tony Stark wants. Okay Colin well as exactly as much of a reigning champion as you are let me introduce the character that’s actually going to be winning this week. Let’s talk about one of the most iconic characters in video games intergalactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran. You know her as the woman who kicks metroid a*s. And is the infinitely superior power suited character that we’ll be talking about today. You probably already know what Samus can do. She’s got an arm cannon that can be upgraded with a myriad of powerups. She can fire missiles, power beams, charge beams, long beams. Basically a lot of beams. She’s got a grapple laser, that can latch on to terrain. And finally she can transform into the iconic morph ball, giving her even greater mobility. Look Sean, I’m gonna be honest with you. I don’t know that much about Samus. The Metroid games were not my favourite as a kid. But if she’s just a person in power armour with like a gfun on her arm, I am concerned for you. That’s why the first suit of armour we’re gonna be seeing is the Mark I. It’s essentially a walking tin can but don’t let that fool you, it’s got enhanced strength, protection it’s got two flame throwers, a rocket launcher that has at least one rocket, and very very limited flight capabilities. Here comes the boom. You’re seriously talking about Iron Man, And you’re gonna tell me Samus is just a person in a suit. Alright that’s fine, if you’re gonna start this thing off with kid gloves, Samus doesn’t even need her suit. Zero Suit Samus is even faster and more agile than she normally is, thanks to her super human reflexes and Chozo DNA. And although she might not have her gun on her hand. The paralyzer and grapple beam are more than enough. Samus is so much of a badass she can whoop Tony Stark in some hunks of rusted metal all on her own. “Is that all?” Look Sean I’m not gonna pretend I’m surprised the Mark 1 lost. Although it does worry me a tiny bit that it lost to someone with no power suit, however we’re gonna rectify that mistake right now and go from zero to 100 with the Hulkbuster armour. I can tell you about the unibeam. I can tell you about the rockets. I could tell you about the repulsors and the enhanced strength. All you need to know Sean, is this armour was made to combat the Hulk. THE HULK. He’s the strongest there is. “Sorry, but this is probably the end.” Alright Colin if you’re going straight to the big guns, I guess Samus will need her suit for this one. But you mentioned the Hulkbuster was designed to fight the Hulk. Right, giant muscly guy? Okay well, I mean yeah it would be a problem if the suit got on Samus. If She has more projectiles than I have time to list in this video and, between her speed, reflexes, the mobility provided by Morph Ball, and her charge beam and missiles, I just have no idea what the Hulkbuster’s gonna do. “Hey!” “You okay Mr. Stark?” “Oh my.” Mr. Stark, look out! “Hey Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.” “Is that all?” “I can’t lose this.” “Be still.” “This is bad.” Ahh ah really? Christian did that, that actually happened? The Hulkbuster lost the fight. Okay you know what it’s actually fine, I’m not worried at all. We still have the Mark 50. Known the plebs as the Infinity War suit. Sean this thing is made of gold titanium nano particles. Do you even know what that means? It means it can self repair, it can materialize things like booster wings, or repulsors, shields, or melee weapons. Or basically anything Tony Stark wants where he wants it, when he wants it. And did I mention Sean that in this suit, Tony Stark made Thanos bleed. Thanos! What chance does Samus have. Alright Colin well now that I whooped you twice in Zero Suit and in the regular power suit well, let’s get to where Samus in the current canon, let’s talk about the fusion suit. Thanks to the events in Metroid Fusion her suit is actually infused with Metroid DNA. If you want to talk about weapons that can do anything, in your case thanks to some made up particle. Gold titanium nano particles Sean. I’m pretty sure those aren’t real. Anyway this suit really can become anything that a programmer can imagine. It has a myriad of weapons. And do you know what Metroids do Colin. Metroids can drain the life, of living beings and machines. Yes and machines. It’s pretty reasonable to conclude that once Samus is now part Metroid, gets her hands on Iron Man in this suit. She can make that pretty Mark 50 pretty much useless. And although it might look cool in the movies, it does have its limits. “is that all?” Well Sean you are now 2-1 in the Animated Clash of Characters, I congratulate you. I did not realise that Samus was actually that strong. Who would have thought that Metroid DNA would trump gold titanium nano particles. Well Colin that’s what happens when you don’t do your research. Wow you are such a gracious victor. Just wait until you see what I got in store for you next episode. Tune in next time, where I go 3-1. Thanks for watching. If you want more great content just like this, be sure to hit the subscribe button.
