Quote: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.
Quote:actually Swordsman shot back some fugitive Nazi criminal when he found evil eye in Avengers 117
Quote:Yes, you can see that in the scans I posted. But if you notice, shortly before that, Valkyrie struck him hard enough to disarm him, and he was lying face down on the floor long enough for her to leap over him, which means she could've killed him if she'd wanted. I'd consider that a victory, even though he was back to his feet two panels later.
Quote:I suppose another thing to consider is that the Valkyrie's essence was in a human host at the time (Barbara Norris), and she didn't have her full memory. I'm not sure if that diminished her skill level, but it could have. She certainly lacked the Shakespearean Asgardian speech pattern.
Exactly. The Valkyrie was nowhere near her full skill or godly experience during that time. This was confirmed later on when the Beast and Angel were members.
The Swordsman has no chance in Hel against a god who's been at it for centuries.
