I want to say Popeye loses round one, but destroys round two, since his spinach pretty much boosts him to the point that he can defeat whatever obstacle is at hand.

I'd take Popeye with spinach over almost anyone.

Popeye with spinach has Gremlin level reality warping abilities.....

Pops takes round 2, but probably not round 1
