Tanis Vs. Ironman – Who Do You Think Would Win??

Hello again!  I have been having an enormous amount of fun with “The Emerald Dragon”.  The contests, giveaways and new characters that some of the readers conjured up for me.  It should have come as no surprise to me that comparisons would happen in regard to Tanis’ suit and the legendary Ironman.  So in the spirit of fair play, and even more fun than we’ve had so far, I have agreed to a match between the two behemoths to determine which warrior is the greater of the two.  That’s right, a battle of the titans of technology!  Green and Silver vs. Red and Gold.  Oh, don’t worry, no one’s going to get hurt, but we’ll finally know which is the greater of the two.

Tanis Vs. Ironman
So, here’s how it works…Examine the arsenal for Tanis (The Emerald Warrior) and Ironman; what do they bring to bear? You might even find that the two are not as similar as you think. Now let’s pit the two together in combat! Crank up the lists, set up the arena and may the best man win!

Tanis Theatra…The Emerald Warrior

His weapon system has also changed over the years, but the basics of Tanis’ arsenal are all based on Transmutational energy. The armor itself is powered by microscopic transmuters that control the plates comprising the Advanced Encounter Suit (A.E.S.). In the de-reticulated configuration, all the plates move into the disc that resides on Tanis’ chest. The onboard Artificial Intelligence, “Walter”, resides in the center of the disc and controls what the suit does when Tanis is too occupied to run in the manual mode. Each microscopic plate moves in a preprogrammed sequence until the suit hermetically seals. Because of this, the suit can withstand space or submergence in water. The environment inside the suit is also controlled by the Artificial Intelligence. His weapons are listed below:
Tony Stark…The Ironman

The weapons systems of the suit have evolved over the years, but Ironman’s suit has always been powered by an Arc Reactor (Uni-beam Projector) located in Tony’s chest. The onboard Artificial Intelligence, “Jarvis”, was initially what ran the internal systems of Stark’s home, but was later uploaded into his armor (or at least according to the 2008 movie). Jarvis also controls the Heads Up Display (H.U.D.). The suit utilizes hard rocket propellant to achieve flight and has an internalized air tight environment which can withstand space or submergence in water. His weapons are listed below:
  • Tipped darts (Causing unconsciousness for fifteen minutes) (Fired from the top of the gauntlets)
  • Repulsors (Fired from the top of the gauntlets) (Generates a controlled waveform and can be used as a shield)
  • Disruptors (Fired from the gloves)
  • Rockets (Fired from shoulder launchers)
  • Sonic Resonator (Fired from the chest)
  • Light Spectrum Enhancer (L.S.E.) (A strong burst of light)
  • Rocket Thrusters for flight (R.B.13) (Located in the gloves and boots)
  • Mobile Transmitter (Line of Sight Matter Transference)
  • Controlled Gravity (Up to 50,000 lbs. or down to negative gravity)
  • Repulsors (Hand Units used for propulsion and steering)
  • Kinetic Energy Beam
  • E.M.P (Electromagnetic Pulse) Generator
  • Ultra Freon (Freeze Beam)
  • Magnetic Field (Creates and controls)
  • Sonic Blaster
  • Holographic Generator (To Create Decoys)
  • Missile Launcher
  • Multi-Targeting Ballistic Weapon
  • Lasers (Fired from his chest)
  • Energy Field
  • Rocket Boost for flight

Now that you have examined each…Which has the better arsenal? Who would beat who? Who do you believe would win and why! I look forward to reading your comments! 🙂
