Which of the two dark clad, vengeance(punishment, whatever)-motivated heroes would win, in a one on one fight, no weapons. The Punisher? Or The Crow?

hmm...

firstly this needs to be moved the the battles forum, no biggie though...

my moneys on the crow for this one

without weapons punishers in real trouble against a crow, not to mention crow's immortality...

it's pretty much a curb stomp against punisher.

welcome to the boards Drayven, hope to see you around more

crow easily, he's no longer human and the punisher is an incredible human but still only human. with weapons the punisher does have a good chance of winning if he knows to kill the bird first.

In the comic, no direct connection is made between his invincibility and the actual crow, he becomes vulnerable after his motives have been completed.

But, this is, of course, assuming his invulnerability is intact, as otherwise he isn't much of a hero.

And thank you for the welcome, and I will no doubt be here for some time to come, this website is awesome. Sorry about the err in the postage place.

Yes, I figured it would go to The Crow, but he's my favorite hero ever, I didn't want to seem too ungodly biased.

Against the movie version punisher might have a chance if he gets at the bird. Against the comic book version, assuming Eric's purpose is to take out one Frank Castle, he doesn't stand a snowballs chance.

Fair enough, I suppose it does matter significantly whether or not we are following the rule set of the movie, or the comic.

The Crow has Superhuman strength,Speed,Agility,reflex,healing factor we can say too,and the comic version of the crow (the first ones) nothing about of lose his powers if the bird guide dies..

i think The Crow wins Punisher by far.

(apologise my english i need to improve it).

The Crow would have no problem killin the punisher but on the other hand the punisher is good with a gun so he could kill the crow (not the person)

Agreed, though I don't remember him having a healing factor. I thought when a Crow was damaged they just pretty much taped up their body and kept going. At least that's how I think later crows work.

Don't worry about the English. It's pretty good. A site like this is also the perfect place to improve it : )

Yeah, the comic is strange. He seems to have regeneration when fighting enemies. They shoot him in the head and torso and he doesn't even feel or react to the injuries at all. But, then he begins cutting his own arms, and those don't seem to heal.

And, yeah. Just purchased and read the comic today. Yeah, it was amazing.

If the crow is alive and present, he can heal, if the crow isnt at place, he is mortal.
