I think someone mentioned that Classic X-O had some good feats. Think it was @allstarsuperman

@veshark: I remember in the classic run Ninjak was, again, able to screw with Aric using flashbangs and avoid his sword swipes. Obviously I can't base my final verdict on that alone.. but if it's any indication of how Aric consistently performs in his classic series.. then I dunno how he stands a chance here.

I would have to review the instance, but a version of XO was able to put up a good fight against Solar...

I am not the xo expert but there is a noob on the site that is. Someone Google extremis ironman vs xo manowar and you'll find him.

@windrushno1 whatta you think? from what you have said in other threads I'd say Aric wins.

X-O seemed to be quite the monster in his classic run.. if he can play keep away and vaporize Midnighter I'd give him the win.. although that's easier said than done. I'll say Aric 6/10 for now.

XO could mess him up long range

I've only read the first two arcs of Manowar though, so...

@i_like_swords: didn't XO get overpowered by The Vine drones tho? & beaten by fodder? (I don't remember all that clearly, I just recently bought his latest volume)

Midnighter has dropkicked them.

EDIT: My bad, it was a tank shell.

Eh, when he was inexperienced with his suit he had a hard time with them but he ended up killing them. Don't know when he was beaten by "fodder". Only time he was beaten that I remember was after being hit with the Vine's entire artillery twice over, and even after that he was killing people before he got KO'd.

That doesn't help him throw a pole through Aric's head.

@i_like_swords: true. His Durability is insane from what I recall

It's a really good fight IMO...both have insane durability. I'll admit XO Manowar is a fairly new character for me.
