Reply Subj: Fandral pretty handily

Quote:Fandral is stronger, likely faster, more durable and way more experienced.
When Fandral pushes back with his sword, Swordsman will be launched back, as if he has been hit by a truck.
Swordsman is skilled, but he lost in a fight with the Black Knight.
... I don't think this is as lopsided as you've made it sound. Thor said the Swordsman's expertise with a blade rivalled any ever seen in Asgard.
Although the Valkyrie ultimately bested the Swordsman through brute strength, he proved the more skilled than she was, and had her on the defensive for much of the fight. According to the OHOTMU, Valkyrie is 50% stronger than Fandral, lifting 45 tons to his 30.
I don't believe the original Swordsman ever fought (never mind lost to) the Black Knight. Another Swordsman (Philip Javert) from a parallel universe did, and he was likely as good as the original, but he lost to Dane due to periodic, pounding headaches he was having as a result of being out of synch with the 616 timeline. Before the sudden headache left him open to Dane's thrust, he was comfortably holding his own, and managed to draw first blood.
