I say Ka-Zar can win, but what is an "elite" Predator?

@betatesthighlander1: just below clan chief. these preds have on average a few 100 years exp and at really only take on the toughest prey. so say hunting humans on earth (even military ect) would be below them. A pred elite would only be found on earth if he was leading a hunt for younger members to get experince/training. A pred elite would be EXPECTED to win against a alien queen. using melee weapons

Pretty much this.

Elites or Veterans are older, physically more imposing, way more skilled than your average "blooded" Yautja, and tend to use mostly specialized melee/thrown equipment (Glaives, Whips, Spears, Etc.).

OT: I actually like Ka-Zar & Zabu, but they are both gonna die here.

Likely, Zabu gets netted and speared (just another beast to the pred), and if the pred chooses to go h2h or wrist-knives to knife with Ka-Zar, Ka-Zar is not even quite Peak Human... Ka-Zar is Olympic level physically.

Ka-Zar has very little chance in a standoff with an Elite Predator.

@rockette: what are you talking about? Excepting possibly Kingpin and the Bloch twins, Ka-Zar has THE best strength feats of any contemporary peak human in Marvel

@betatesthighlander1:

He us still far, far, below the strength level of an elite Yautja, they year through tank armor and kick over armored transport trucks.

@betatesthighlander1:

Ripping through metal doors and walls is pretty common in all their comics.

Dachande and his group of trainees ripped through sealed blast doors in AVP war series.

In South China Sea, the Yautja there ran up and kick an army apc off the road.

They have dodged assault rifle fire, various times, and was shot by a civil war cannon at point blank range and was only annoyed. Those two were not even from elites.

They can also continue fighting much longer annoyed land through worse injuries than any human because while humans have a 4 valve heart with 2 main branches, they have a 5 valve heart with a dedicated line that only goes to and from their brain.

While the younger ones are short tempered and prone to an berzerker rages due to their crazy powerful adrenal glands the older ones have learned to control it and use it when needed.

Also to even be and blooded Yautja they have to train for roughly 100 years before they even earn the right to hunt the the xenomorphs to become true hunters. To be an elite they have to fight for multiple hundreds of years more and by that time they are expected to lead hunts into xenomorph hives to capture the Queens alive to to fuel to fuel the hunts.

@misterwhisper: any way you could show some actual evidence for any of that?
