Tournament of Scoundrels Round 1

First up in our fight between the Sinister Six and the Rogues we have Kraven the Hunter vs. Captain Boomerang. You can view the contest rules at the post below this one.

Here are the official write-ups for this contest:

Captain Boomerang

Real name: George "Digger" Harkness
First appearance: Flash (vol. 1) #117 (Dec. 1960)
Created by: John Broome and Carmine Infantino
Powers and abilities: Captain Boomerang is an unparalleled master of throwing boomerangs, and employs a number of trick boomerangs including razor sharp boomerangs, sonic boomerangs, exploding boomerangs, and remote controlled boomerangs. He has also been known to use giant remote controlled boomerangs as vehicles, traps, and weapons.


Kraven the Hunter

Real name: Sergei Kravenov
First appearance: Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 1) #15 (Aug. 1964)
Created by: Stan Lee and Steve Ditko
Powers and abilities: Kraven is an expert hunter and tracker, and a master of numerous weapons and martial arts. Further, he has enhanced strength, speed, senses, stamina, and reflexes from an herbal potion which he ritualistically ingests. He uses numerous weapons in combat, most often spears, nets, axes, and knives, as well as various toxins and tranquilizers.

Now, right off the bat, you may think that Kraven has an advantage, but bear in mind two things: Captain Boomerang has the advantage when it comes to range, and Kraven's enhanced physicality does not propel him to a superhuman level. He's more akin to Captain America's level of strength, speed, etc.

I think it's gonna be a good fight!


  1. I've got to get this to Kraven. Yes, his arsenal is limited, but the thing is he could use the environment to lay traps. It would be a good fight, though.

  2. I am gonna have to go with The Capt here. I think it would be a hell of a fight and it would be damn close. But I think if Kraven caught Boomerang in any traps he would cut out of it with a razorang and then take out the hunter with a few exploding boomerangs to the head.

  3. I'll go with Kraven too. He should be pretty experienced at closing the range gap and take the captain out. Definitely not easily though.

  4. Kraven is the only person fucked up enough to take down Kraven. Cap was accidentally shot by the third Robin's father. 'Nuff said.

  5. you ever gonna finish this? I was all excited!
