Contest of Champions (CoC) Episode #10: Thor vs. Invisible Woman & Red Hulk

Welcome to Contest of Champions (CoC) Podcast, Episode #10! CoC is an interactive player vs. player game where your favorite Marvel characters go head to head to answer the eternal question of “who can beat whom in a fight?”

Join Jeff Jackson and Ian Johnson every week as they welcome two team managers who have a stable of five characters each ready to blast, zap, snikt, thwip, and smash their way to be the last one standing! It’s a little bit fan fiction, a little bit debate, a little bit role playing, and a whole bunch of fun! It’s an interactive adventure for the managers, and for the ComicAttack.net community.

This week, we’re joined by Dan Briand, Eli Anthony, and guest host Infinite Speech!

First, we want to remind you, if you are a comic artist, and you would like to provide a sketch or drawing of the characters battling this week, please send a link to your sketch to jeff@comicattack.net. We would love to spotlight your stuff!

Next, on this episode we shared our weekly Fights of the Week!
Dan picked up Alpha Flight #2 by Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, and Dale Eaglesham while on vacation, and appreciated how the team, with Puck’s help, took out Heather Hudson.
Eli, like all of us, loved Uncanny X-Force #16 by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena, especially when Blob flattens Fantomex, but gets a mouthful of steak knife thanks to Deadpool.
Infinite Speech realized in New Avengers #17 by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato that Dr. Strange still has the Crimson Bands of Cytorakk that he uses against Ultimo.
Ian recaps the titular fight of Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula #3 by Victor Gischler and Ryan Stegman as Hulk fights not only Dracula, but a cool new team of vampires.
Jeff geeked out over Amazing Spider-Man #671 by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos as Spidey gets his spider-sense back in a fight against Kaine.

Most importantly, here’s the show:

  1. Eli

    Hey everyone, remember that the Red Hulk has beaten Thor all by himself. Now he’s got the Invisible Woman to help him defeat the Odinson. Thor couldn’t handle Red Hulk, there’s no way he can handle Red Hulk AND Invisible Woman.

  2. Moses

    Seems like Thor is outclassed on this one. I’m hoping Dan can come up with some creative ways to divide and conquer.

  3. Jeff Jackson

    Hmmm…I’m not quite convinced either way yet. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more discussion. Especially considering what happened in Fear Itself #7…

  4. Hey, Jeff “Spoiler” Jackson some of us haven’t read the issue yet!! lol

  5. Eli

    If Speech doesn’t start to catch up on his books we might have to shutdown the site for fear of spoiling everything for him.


    vote for Red Hulk and the Invisible Woman!
