Star Trek or Star Wars? Angel or Spike? Kirk or Picard? Geeks always love to debate which franchise, Buffy love interest or Enterprise captain (amongst many things) is the best. During last weekend's Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, SYFY WIRE assembled a team for a special C2E2 edition of our Debate Club that addresses some age-old nerdy questions.
Joining Jackie Jennings on our Live Stage was voice actress Marisha Ray (Metal Gear Survive, the live-action Critical Role), comic book writer Tini Howard (Hack/Slash: Resurrection, Assassinistas, Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It), and comic book artist Khary Randolph (X-Men titles, Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider, Spidey).
Pitting two opponents at a time, our guests had one minute to state their case and even give a shout-out to some of the stuff they were working on. The winner of the debate was then chosen by the attending crowd.
We kicked things off in style with the following three questions: Vampires have moved into the neighborhood, would you call Buffy or Blade? Which captain would you chose to pilot your vessel, Malcolm Reynolds or Han Solo? Who do you want patrolling your neighborhood, Batgirl or Spider-Gwen?
Closing up our Debate Club was a lightning round where all three had to argue who was the better cyclops between Nick Fury, Deathstroke or Cyclops. This time, Ray, Howard and Randolph had 45-seconds on the dot to defend their picks. Check out the video to see their answers and who the audience picked as the winners.
