    I would like to make a distinction between evil ninja flunkies in pajamas who get their butts handed to them by the gross and heroic ninjas who can take out whole Banana Republic armies single handedly and then go out for Orange Smoothies... Daredevil has defeated the former, true, but Snake-Eyes is the latter.

    Let's examine the facts:

    Strength
    Snake Eyes: Near the peak of strength for someone his age and size, but is at least in his 50s.
    Daredevil: Olympic-level athlete in his prime.
    Point: Daredevil

    Agility & martial arts prowess
    Snake Eyes: Ninja master and heir to the title of Arishikage Grand Master with extensive training in various other fighting forms. Said to be the deadliest member of a team made up of the best of the best of the best of the US military.
    Daredevil: Extensive ninja and martial arts training. Possibly superhuman agility.
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Weaponry
    Snake Eyes: Currently carries sword, several knives, throwing stars, Uzi, pistol, grenades, and nunchuka. Also has a famous collection of spike-knuckle trench knives.
    Daredevil: A cane that becomes a staff and/or a pair of nunchuka.
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Girlfriend
    Snake Eyes: Scarlett, a ninja and counter-intelligence specialist for GIJoe. Genius level IQ, marksman, master of disguise, and said to be the second deadliest Joe. Also happens to be a drop-dead gorgeous redhead. :happy:
    Daredevil: Elektra, also a ninja. She would be a good opponent for Scarlett. . . outside of the annoying little fact that she's dead.
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Costume
    Snake Eyes: Changes almost weekly, though always black with a wicked looking mask and weapons all over.
    Daredevil: Dark red, though in the past has worn goofy-looking grey armor and, initially, bright yellow spandex.
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Weaknesses
    Snake Eyes: Left horribly scarred and mute after protecting Scarlett from a plume of burning jet fuel by blocking it with his face.
    Daredevil: Blind as a bat. Also becomes confused whenever insurance-hawking ducks shout, "Aflac!"
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Musical ability
    Snake Eyes: Totally wails on guitar, usually after killing someone. Was once asked to join GNR, but killed them instead.
    Daredevil: Can't even play chopsticks.
    Point: Snake Eyes

    Overall winner: Snake Eyes
    I do, however, think DD would put up more of a fight than a lot of y'all seem to think.

    Yea especially if Daredevil has to rely on sound to see Snakey would wipe the floor with him.
    No matter how I die, even if there is a suicide note; it was murder. Cheers!

    Ooh! What's with clicking on that peculiar looking smiley in the post above?

    And where's the next showdown?

    Urgh. I'll just say that if Ross Perot were due north of this fight, he'd refer to a giant sucking sound from the south.

    I think, all things considered, Marc Spector would take down Night Thrasher, who no one remembers the secret identity of.

    Given the interest in this one (), here's the next showdown, a massive team vs team melee:

    The Uncanny X-Men vs The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    The Father Figure: Professor Xavier vs Splinter

    The Slightly Homicidal Unofficial Leader: Wolverine vs Raphael

    The Stiff-As-A-Board Official Leader: Cyclops vs Leonardo

    The Scientific Genius: Beast vs Donatello

    The Wisecracking Teen: Jubilee vs Michaelangelo

    The Not-Quite-A-Team-Member: Banshee vs Casey Jones

    The Token Hot Redhead: Jean Grey vs April O'Neil

    Discuss.

    Wow that's a toughie. Because the X'rs actually have mutant powers and the turtles are ninjas. The turtles are also more grounded in reality then the X-Men. Yes, I know they are both mutants. But the TMNT arn't shooting laser beams and stuff. Damn, this is tough. A nice one though. I'll have to put some serious thoughts on it.

    Um......the X-Men. Ninja's may wail, but they ain't superheroes. We're beating a dead horse here, guys: Superheroes smoke Ninjas in their sleep. I would like to see Vision vs. Martian Manhunter - both green, both mass changing, both hyper powerful.....probably a tie.

    Okay, my thoughts, and I'm assuming all showdowns are truly one-on-one, with winners participating in a free-for-all.

    Round 1: Professor X. Though Xavier and Splinter would almost immediately realize they shouldn't fight, that isn't much fun. Splinter is a master ninja, and Xavier is limited in mobility. Both are elderly (or close to it) for their species. Xavier's advantage would (obviously) come from his telepathy. Nothing against Splinter, but--although his ninja disciplines would make the job slightly more difficult--Xavier would have no problem beating him with his mind.

    To prove it's not anything against Splinter and I still like him, I skip ahead a few showdowns for round 2:

    Round 2: Michaelangelo. Jubilee would win this if it were a coolness contest, but it's not. Her strength is average, her combat ability very limited. One of her only advantages is in the other room fighting Raphael, the other (her fireworks) would be next to useless against Mikey's shell. With his fighting prowess, Mikey would triumph over poor Jubilation rather easily, though he wouldn't actually hurt her since he'd recognize her coolness. And he'd have some serious hurt feelings from her mastery of quips.

    Round 3: Leonardo. Cyclops is only as good as his optic blasts, which are, granted, powerful. Leonardo has proven time and again he can dodge most slower-than-light beams, and even if he doesn't, his shell would absorb most of the impact. Skill wise, Cyclops is no match for Leonardo.

    Round 4: Wolverine. This is a tougher one to call. They're evenly matched in speed and strength, and Raphael is probably a better combatant overall. But Wolvie's healing factor would make all the difference in this showdown. As both score occasional hits, Raphael would be weakened, but Wolvie would quickly recover. Over time, Raphael would succomb to his injuries, and Wolverine would use his shell to light the match for his stogie.

    Round 5: Donatello. Beast has an advantage in terms of agility and strength; Donatello has the upper hand in speed, durability, and combat skill. Intellectually, they're a pretty even match. Since Beast has no shell and his reach is much shorter, Donatello would score more hits until he finally wins.

    Round 6: Casey Jones. Banshee has the ability of flight and a nasty sonic blast, which would seemingly give him a clear upper hand. But I think Casey's nuts enough to just barrel on through Banshee's scream, and in close quarters, Banshee stands no chance.

    Round 7: Jean. This isn't even worth discussing why.

    So we're left with Professor X, Wolverine, and Jean Grey vs Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Casey Jones. Though the Turtles' side has a slight numerical advantage, any of the three X-Men in question is probably able to take down the entire competition by himself (or herself), so I have to award overall victory to the X-Men.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
