Jesus vs Superman (everyone would do this first, just to satisfy curiousity) The Second Dr Who (Patrick Troughton) vs the Fourth Dr Who (Tom Baker) Chevyn McAuley vs a fully-operational Death Star The IRA vs the Shining Path God vs little fishes "Weeed!" from "Bill and Ben" vs a Triffid Stephen Patrick Morrisey vs Henry Rollins etc, u.s.w., i.t.d. nikolai --- someone get Jeff Vogel to implement this.
