    Default Harry Dresden vs. The Marvel Universe

    A few quick rules

    -This is Harry During Changes
    -Harry has all of his gear
    -Harry survives each fight, even if he loses. Come up with a quirky reason why he survives for bonus points!
    -Harry can talk his way out of one fight, if you like!

    Harry Dresden, after being knocked through an unexpected rift in the Nevernever by a Baby-Eating Mantis-Shark Denarian, ends up in the Marvel Universe. There, he is confronted by the following enemies:



    1) Pixie, who happens to be nearby stalking Teen!Clops, senses a surge of mystic energy and goes to investigate. She sees Harry attempting to close the Way, but assumes he's SUMMONING the Baby-Eating Mantis-Shark-Denarian! With no back up, its up to our young heroine to stop a hellish invasion!

    2) An burst of energy from the open way blasts Harry away from the fight...where he promptly lands on Teen!Jean. Teen!Clops, enraged by an attack on Teen!Jean beings to blast away at Harry!

    3) Harry uses a distraction to slip away into a conveniently open sewer grate. Wandering the mazy underground tunnels, he runs afoul of a Repowered Marrow and Callisto.

    4) After three Brutal fights in a row, Harry is knocked unconscious. When he awakes, he finds himself strapped to a slab as the arch-villain Diablo prepares to harvest "mystic essence" from the injured Wizard!

    5) As Diablo's lab begins to burn, Harry makes his way out of the sewers and into an abandoned building. As he attempts to open a way and get out of his predicament, he finds his efforts blocked by Illyana Rasputin!

    6) As the two master mystics battle, the fight is complicated by the arrival of Damian Hellstrom and Blade! In a raw melee, who will emerge triumphant?

    7) With an entire block aflame and in shattered ruins, the Avengers begin to answer the call! Arriving First on the Scene are Iron-Fist and Luke Cage! Can a battered Harry survive their onslaught?

    8) Harry, realizing that is only chance to escape is to make for the way that brought him here, abandons the fight! But, up in the sky, the Iron Avenger means to stop Harry at any cost!

    9) Harry makes it to the portal, but one foe remains -- former master of the mystic arts: Dr. Starnge!

    Well, whoever this Starnge fellow is, he's probably doing better than Strange is right now.

    There is the not particularly small problem of Harry kind of being utterly unwilling to use lethal force against human opponents.

    Which drastically decreases his chances right from the beginning.

    He's pretty much stopped quite neatly at Iron Fist and Luke Cage if nothing else.

    The scenario is extreme in that he has to face these opponents alone and without chance for recovery from injuries. Harry has fought injured many times, but he can't regenerate or heal from injuries like Wolverine. Wizards heal from injuries completely, as in given enough time not even scars remain. But he needs time to heal and recover between each fight. His will, and his energy reserves will eventually be spent at that rate of onslaught.

    However, this is Winter Knight Dresden. His energy reserves, stamina, strength and healing rate are increased significantly. Plus he might also still have Soul Fire, which is both a blessing and a curse. If Dresden is at full strength, I can't see IF and LC having any way of stopping him. If Dresden is tapped out, then maybe IF and LC can take him, maybe.

    They could take him at full power. Even not getting into the argument of whether or not he can even hurt Luke Cage, Iron Fist is far faster and far stronger than anything Dresden's ever fought and defeated cleanly.

    Funny, I think Luke is pretty equivalent to some of the more physical denarians. Also, is he resistant to energy attacks?

    Iron Fist is kind of a glass cannon in this fight -- one hit will take down harry and vice versa.

    I love Dresden, but he has never faced anything on physical par with Luke Cage. The beastly Denarians were at very, very most Spiderman level strength, and vulnerable to gunfire (Save for Nicodemus due to the noose) and there is no one with Ironfists mix of speed and offensive output. Kindcad was dropping denarians left and right with sniper fire during the rescue of Ivy, Danny and Luke laugh at that kind of threat.
    You give him prep time and it's a different story, but in a straight up fight he lacks the speed.

    Luke would tear the average Denarian apart. Kincaid's guns that mowed through Denarians like paper? Those would irritate him at most.

    Iron Fist, meanwhile, is a Spiderman-level bullet timer with powerful ranged and AOE attacks that will screw up Dresden before he has time to whip out his blasting rod, his gun, or even point his hand and say a magic word.

    Also assuming the fight at #8 is Iron Man and not someone else I don't know about, that's an even bigger stomp. Harry can literally throw everything he has at Tony's armor and it'll get him nowhere.

    Dresden magic shorts out tech. The more complex, the easier it is to scramble.

    Superhigh tech would shut down immediately if Dresden glares at it. He's not likely to get that far, but it would be a quick draw between him and Tony.

    Without even getting into how Tony can just fly up out of eyesight and nuke him, his technology is several levels of sophistication above anything Harry's ever hexed, and has shown to be compatible with magic in the past.

    All he has to do is hold his hand up and say'Hexus' and Tony's armor explodes. Harry nearly caused a 747 type aircraft to crash simply by being a passenger on board.
