So we’ve all seen (and participated in) the discussions and arguments of one character/ship/weapon/magic wand against another and which fictional character/weapon/vehicle/snack treat would win in a showdown between the two. The two popular ones I can think of offhand are The Enterprise versus a Star Destroyer and Batman versus anyone.
This week I had (what I thought was) an interesting thought: What if a Weeping Angel fought against I Dream of Jeannie? Who would win this one? It could easily go either way. What is the upper limit of Jeannie’s power? Could she blink an Angel into the middle of the sun? Is the speed of her blink faster than the speed that the Angel can move? If there is anyone else there, I would say that there is no contest – Jeannie would win – but what if the two were alone? Could she wink? Would the law of diminishing returns that turned a creepy and interesting new antagonist into a goofy joke about the Statue of Liberty keep the Angel from being effective? Would there, could there be a draw?
My take: With enough distance between the two, Jeannie can blink the Weeping Angel into the center of the Earth or blink up a mirror and show it to the Angel. Jeannie wins.
OK, what’s your yours? It can be fascinating, dramatic, funny, or ridiculous. I just want to hear a good match up, who would win, and why.
