Apparently you're not the only ones who idly wondered who'd win in a fight between the Dark Lord of the Sith and the Servant of the Secret Fire: The masterminds behind the Super Power Beat Down web series have given it lots of thought ... and have shot a rather well-done video to show who'd be victorious.

Ironically, the weakest part of this short is what seems like it'd be the easiest to get right: Darth Vader's voice. But the rest of it—the patch of woods that's passing for Middle-earth, the dude playing Gandalf, the fight choreography, the special effects—is all spot on.

No, I don't quite buy Gandalf's staff holding up against a lightsaber, but what are you gonna do?

The victor was chosen by online voting, so if the outcome doesn't match with what you see in your mind's eye, it's no one's fault but everyone's. Up next on Super Power Beat Down is Batman vs. Wolverine. (My money's on the Canuck with the healing factor.)
