Nerd Fight: Battle #35

It’s that time again. To reiterate, every Friday the Cupcake Rogues will randomly pick 2 characters to do battle – whether it be Marvel, DC, female, male, mutant, human, or human that pretends to be a mutant with magic (I’m looking at you, Juggernaut), they are all possible. Once we’ve randomly selected our two, they will go head to head in several categories with one being deemed winner. The winner will live on to fight another day, but a warning – with 200 possible characters, it may be awhile before round 2 🙂

Thirty-fifth week in the random selection:

Two-Face vs. Enchantress

  Two-Face   Enchantress (Amora Version)
Origin Harvey Dent was kind, handsome, smart and had a passion for justice. He became Gotham City’s District Attorney a mere 6 months before the Batman came on the scene. Though mistrustful of the Bat at first, Harvey would join with him and Captain James Gordon to take down criminal boss, Carmine Falcone. While they managed to coerce Falcone’s rival Sal Maroni into testifying for them, Maroni snuck acid into the courtroom and splashed Harvey in the face. The incident would leave Harvey physically and emotionally scarred. Harvey escaped into the sewers and would emerge as Two-Face. Now leader of a crime gang of his own consisting of some of the heavy hitters in Batman’s Rogues Gallery. Falcone was murdered and it was Two-Face who pulled the trigger.   Amora doesn’t know much about her family. She doesn’t know who her parents are, just that she was born in Asgard and has a sister named Lorelei. Amora learned magic as an apprentice to Karnilla, Queen of Norns, but was eventually banished. She used her ability to seduce others as a means to keep learning magic from those who were more powerful and eventually became one of the more powerful magic-wielders in Asgard.
Edge? Two-Face – Harvey’s origin is much more in depth and interesting than ‘orphan turns skank.’
Powers/ Abilities Two-Face has been trained by Batman himself (more on that later) in hand-to-hand combat. He’s also an excellent marksman and his weapon of choice is usually a gun. Two-Face is also considered a criminal mastermind, having escaped Arkham Asylum on a regular basis.   Amora is an Asgardian, meaning she has superhuman strength, speed, stamina and durability. She can manipulate ambient magical energy, including projecting magical power bolts, interdimensional teleportation, protective energy shields, illusions, levitation, conjuring, transmutation, telekinesis, time-disruption, mind switching and mind control. She’s used her magic to heal injuries and enhance her beauty and allure, including enchanting her lips so she can make men her slaves by kissing them. She is described as the second most powerful sorceress in Asgard.
Edge? Enchantress – Unless Two-Face lets Harvey argue his way out of a fight, Two-Face is going to be a greasy smear on the pavement.
Love Interest Before he became Two-Face, Harvey had a wife named Gilda. Once the Two-Face personality surfaced, she divorced him and married a guy named Janus (named after the two-headed Roman god no doubt). As Two-Face he developed an attraction to police officer Rene Montoya. As she was a lesbian and involved with Batwoman, she wasn’t interested.   Amora is always trying to get into Thor’s pants and, at one point, succeeds while they’re living in New York. Other than that, Amora only deals with men that can do something for her.
Edge? Enchantress – Harvey lost Gilda and Two-Face seemed to think he could make Montoya wanna bat for the other side. Not happening Chief.
Costume Two-Face likes to play up the duality of his personality by wearing opposing looks on either side. For example, one side may be a white suit with a black shirt, while the other is a black suit with a white shirt.   Amora wears a green headpiece, similar to that of the Scarlet Witch’s, along with green sleeves and corset dress. She wears black tights with green circles that mysteriously turn into shoes at the bottom in most pictures.
Edge? DRAW – Two-Face gets points for being the more recognizable,  but we’d rather rock Enchantress’s green getup.
Most Entertaining Personality Harvey Dent and Two-Face are both two separate people in the same body, so you get twice the personality! Two-Face being the dominant tends to be extremely aggressive and relies on his coin to make decisions for him. If he flips it and the side comes up unscarred, you’re golden, if it comes up scarred, you’re  S.O.L.. Two-Face is pretty much incapable of making a decision without it, a fact the Dark Knight has exploited on more than one occasion.   Amora is a self-serving evil wench. But she’s hot, so that makes it OK, right? However, we did find that after Executioner, the lackey she strung along for years to do her biddings who was hopelessly in love with her, died, she was actually sad about it. So maybe there is a heart in there underneath all the bitch.
Edge? Two-Face – Dent is exciting! Plus, Two-Face and Harvey are known to have  arguments with one another which = Hilarious.
Best story arch There’s two (of course there is)…

 

When a massive earthquake nearly levels Gotham in the “No Mans Land” storyline, its criminals take over easily. Commissioner Gordon attempts to hold the city together and Two-Face kidnaps him for his interference. Two-Face states he’s putting Gordon on trial for his crimes and he’ll be the judge, jury and executioner. Commissioner Gordon proves he’s one crafty mother by demanding Harvey Dent as his defense lawyer. Dent and Two-Face go on to argue against each other with Dent coming out the winner! Gordon was acquitted and Harvey tasted sweet victory.

 

Another story has Batman offering to train Harvey to be a vigilante after Harvey was able to rid himself of the Two-Face personality for a time. Dent accepted and after relentless training, took over for Batman and kept Gotham safe for a year while Batman went gallivanting off to who knows where. When Batman returned, Harvey felt useless. These thoughts brought about the reemergence of the Two-Face personality. Two-Face being dominant again, destroys the reconstructed side of Harvey’s face with acid and a scalpel.

  In Enchantress’ first appearance, she and Skurge, the Executioner aided Loki and tried to eliminate Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster, in order to have him for herself. She strung along the Executioner so that he would be her bodyguard, although she did not return his love. She attempted to seduce Thor in his Don Blake identity while sending the Executioner to kill Jane. They were able to exile Jane to another dimension, but Thor wasn’t having Enchantress’ nonsense and eventually got Jane back. Odin exiled Enchantress and the Executioner to Earth for their deeds where they became members of Baron Zemo’s original Masters of Evil.
Edge? Two-Face – His stories are both amazing and sad at the same time.  We were pleasantly surprised to find out how complex Two-Face really is.
Hotness Which side are you looking at? Before his original scarring took place Dent was called Apollo because of his good looks. Afterwards the left side of his face looks like something that would make Deadpool barf.   Amora is a buxom blonde that spends her free time seducing poor chaps into doing things for her. Odds are, you’d do whatever she tells you to.
Edge? Enchantress – Amora has made herself the most physically beautiful woman in the world, add her knack for seducing anything with a pulse and men (and some chicks) don’t stand a chance.
Fiercest foe Batman and Harvey Dent. While Batman foils Two-Face’s plans, Harvey Dent is a CONSTANT threat to Two-Face.  Harvey once decided to throw himself off a building in an attempt to kill Two-Face. This was thwarted by Batman who saved him at the last minute.   Thor and Loki. While Thor is often in her sights to seduce, because she is often on the side of evil makes them natural enemies. However, Loki is the one that delivers Amora’s death with a strike from her Mjolnir duplicate. She also has a long-standing feud with Scarlet Witch.
Edge? DRAW – These two don’t mess around, when it comes to picking an arch-nemesis, they go for the cream of the crop.
Biggest WTF Moment When Harvey Dent’s ex wife Gilda remarries, she becomes pregnant with twins. Two-Face is furious, considering it a betrayal and kidnaps the babies. However, it’s revealed that the children are actually Harvey’s as his sperm was frozen years ago. Two-Face feels like a world class ass-hat and decides to give the babies back.   When Amora finally had feelings for someone, Heimdall, she battled the powerful entity Nightmare and risked her life on his behalf when he was unable to protect himself. However, when he said he wanted to marry her, she decided it would be a good time to break it off.
Edge? Two-Face – How did Two-Face not recall he had his sperm frozen? Harvey probably never told him. Jerk.
Person who should attempt an on-screen portrayal Aaron Eckhart played Harvey Dent and Two-Face in The Dark Knight and he was marvelous. He captured not only the earnestness of Dent, but the murderous rage of Two-Face.   The threads on Superhero Hype tell me that fans would want Amber Heard or Sienna Miller to play the Enchantress. Amber Heard is hot, but I’m not sure about her acting abilities, and she seems a bit young. Sienna Miller, in my opinion isn’t attractive enough to be considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. I’m going to go with ScarJo as my pick. She’s busty, beautiful and she’s done the seductive thing. Plus we need a different Black Widow, seriously.
Edge? Two-Face – Seeing as how Eckhart’s already done Two-Face proud we’ve gotta go with him.

 

Two-Face: 7

Enchantress: 5

And the winner is…. Two-Face proving that two heads really are better than one. *ducks to miss flying tomatoes*
