This poll is now closed.
Sorry it's been a while since the last poll, I took a week off to focus on my Midterm Assignments.

Link to Last Poll: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927750-playstation-3/65329557

Yesterday's Results: Faith Connors won with 63.64% of the vote.

My thoughts on today: Batman is extremely strong, that's a given. But without all his fancy gadgets, he's not all that. Leon has less strength than him, but he's also faster and probably more limber.

NOTE: This isn't a "who's more popular or cooler" topic, this is a fun hypothetical to see which VG character ranks the highest in the 4 terms of athleticism: Strength, Agility, Endurance, and Flexibility.

My Plans for the rest of the week:

Tuesday: Nina Williams (Tekken) vs Solid Snake (Metal Gear)
Wednesday: Nathan Drake vs Olympic Decathlete (Summer Olympics 2012)
Thursday: Randall Wayne (Deadlight) vs Little Boy (Limbo)
Friday: Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell) vs Dr. Robotnik (Mario and Sonic Olympics)
Saturday: Lara Croft vs Generic COD Soldier

Have at it you vultures.

This is a question? Obviously Batman.

If your accuracy is over 10%, you're trying too hard.

Admit it, you really know next to nothing about the character.

Batman. Martial arts training.
Leon. Cop training. Maybe a roundhouse kick and suplex thrown in.

yeah, I go with Batman.

This.

Even by looking just at the world of gaming and not the entire Batman IP.

The climbing, fighting and grapple work of Mr. Plot Armor far exceeds Leon doing rolls here or there and even that certain QTE fight scene.

Not to say there exists nobody in gaming more athletic, or just as, but tht Leon is a far cry from that competition.

If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

I don't like these topics. The two you choose are never evenly matched. Chris and Leon would be a much better topic.

Batman is practically superhuman with his feats. In Batman Year One, he side kicks a huge tree stump to snap it off,

Batman knows ALL styles of martial arts and is a master of them as ridiculous as that sounds.

Only going by Batman's video game feats (which is only fair) I give a slight edge to Leon (who isn't just a cop, he has almost 15 years of government agent service) but I admit I am biased as a RE fan and really didn't like the Batman games enough to even finish them.
