I just got done watching Serenity again, and it got me to wonder, who would win if these two (Max Guiverra and River Tam) ever faught each other.

I know they live centuries apart, and who can guess how far apart they are in distance, but they were both basically assassins/soldeirs made by their respective governments.

So who do you think would win?

Would River be more willing to fight dirty?

Um...River can read her mind. River would totally school her.

The real question is which one could defeat Ditka.

River is a spaceship, and she can kill you with her brain.

How about I just have Jayne shoot whoever that other one is, and River and I go have a few drinks in the hot tub? [Big Grin]

Jayne and River are the perfect couple.
River hears what everyone thinks, Jayne doesn't think, so she would have some nice peace and quiet when they were alone.

I think Jayne thinks plenty. What he thinks isn't anything that he can say out loud without being slapped or arrested. [Wink]

I'm certain that if the two of them were going to be in a room alone (that is, Max and River), fighting is the last thing I'd want them to do. [Wink]

Since when has that stopped him?

I just fiugured with as fast and strong as Max is, she might have a shot against River. I realize it wouyld be hard to fight a mind reader, but River would still have to be faster than Max for it to help her any. This is ofcourse assuming River doesn't just kill Max with her mind.

Considering their histories, I think they'd team up and take on the government.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but River never actually kills anyone with her mind, right? At least, not in the literal Darth Vader Force-choke kind of way. I always took that comment to be her messing with Jayne.

Regardless, River's willingness to use firearms gives her an edge. Also, to my knowledge, Max has never wielded an axe.

Quote from River in Firefly:

"Also, I can kill you with my brain."

River would win. No, we never see her kill anybody with her brain, but I think it's safe to assume she COULD.

Regular Ditka, or Hurricane Ditka?

I don't think so.
