    I got inspired by the recent Running Man vs. Robocop movie wars thread.

    The "Stalkers" are some of the most badass movie villains in history, even if they have an uncanny knack for being defeated surprisingly easily and in comedic fashion. These guys still deserve their own thread and poll (could someone put a poll on this if they see fit?)

    Here's the contestants:

    1. Subzero

    2. Buzzsaw

    3. Dynamo

    [​IMG]

    4. Fireball

    [​IMG]


    5. Captain Freedom

    I'll add some bio stuff tomorrow.

    remember The Fordham Baldies from the Wanderers and their leader Terror?

    That is the same guy who played Dynamo and apparently he was a legit opera singer in real life:

    Captain Freedom for me. Those fitness shows he did were hillarious.

    Holy shit, just watched The Running Man for the first time today! I'd say buzzsaw on a level playing field. Or I guess Arnold if he'd have accepted the offer to become a stalker.

    The actor that played Dynamo died before the movie even came out. I like Captain Freedom here, but his metallic robot armor was the worst field uniform.

    He was also a legit Wrestler; an alternate in the US Team for the 1976 Olympics. He was in training for the 1980 Moscow Games but the US boycotted it. In addition, he earned a Degree in Computing Science from MIT.

    Cool dude.:cool:

    I'd have to go with Sub-Zero, even though he is currently now a plain zero.

    Jet- pack and flamethrower? Fireball wins by default.

    Subzero

    I mean you've guys who got a flamethrower, a chainsaw and a freaking electro-gun thingy and all this guy gets is a steel hockey stick and on top of that he has to kill people while ice skating.

    definitely Subzero.

    Buzzsaw had the chain, but that's basically it. Dynamo looked like a retard (no offense to the actor). Fireball was OK. Captain Freedom get bonus point for the workout video but loses some due to silly uniform.

    Although in all fairness, Subzero has to have the ice in order to execute anyone. Kind of limiting factor. Still, he's cool as ice (pun intended).
