After years of waiting, fans of Star Wars can finally breathe easy with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni’s The Mandalorian. As a spin-off of the Star Wars saga, The Mandalorian follows the story of Din Djarin and the Child/Baby Yoda across the galaxy far, far away.
After the widely acclaimed first season, The Mandalorian is back for its second season. In the show, Din Djarin/Mando has certainly proved himself as one of the deadliest bounty hunters in the galaxy. His precious Beskar armor, an arsenal of weapons, quick wit, and years of training make him a deadly opponent. But how far would our favorite space bounty hunter fare against some of the Marvel favorites? Let’s find out!
10. Lose To: Wolverine
If Wolverine’s signature adamantium claws didn’t make him dangerous enough, the unkillable mutant has mastered dozens of martial arts over the years. His insane regenerative abilities and nasty temper will only leave behind a pool of blood and broken pieces of Beskar on the ground.
9. Beat: The Punisher
The Punisher is quite similar to Mando in many ways, including their dislike for small talk. Though the Punisher has established himself as a cold-blooded vigilante in the Marvel universe, he doesn’t really bring anything to the table that Mando hasn’t faced before. Unless the Punisher decides to nuke him, normal bullets won’t really work against Beskar. Plus, Mando’s years of training and superior technology gives him the upper hand.
8. Lose To: Deadpool
If Deadpool can’t hurt Mando with his skills, he will definitely get him with his running mouth. Though Deadpool relies mostly on guns and katanas that are quite useless against Beskar, his regenerative ability will turn the tide. Whatever Mando decides to throw against the Merc, he is just going to recover in minutes and come back.
7. Beat: Black Widow
Mostly shown as an espionage specialist, Black Widow is actually quite proficient with hand-to-hand combat. However, her skills fall short of Mando’s years of training and experience as a bounty hunter in the world of Star Wars. Mando’s whistling birds and jet pack severely outclasses the spy. But, Mando should look out for her incapacitating Widow’s Bite.
6. Lose To: Captain America
Mando might have faced some of the nastiest Star Wars has to offer, he hasn’t faced anyone like Steve Rogers. The super-soldier outclasses the Mandalorian in every single aspect except weapons. But to counter Mando’s numerous weapons, Captain America has got his trusted shield that can withstand most attacks. Once he gets close enough, it’s pretty much over for Mando. As one of the best strategists in the Marvel universe, Captain America can devise a plan to take down the bounty hunter.
5. Beat: Taskmaster
Injected with the SS-Hauptsturmführer, Taskmaster has the ability to mimic and retain his opponent’s fighting style in minutes. Though the Mandalorian is a proficient hand-to-hand combatant, any combination against Taskmaster is futile. However, Mando’s advanced weapon systems and the indestructible Beskar armor gives him the advantage.
4. Lose To: Black Panther
Though it is yet to be decided which metal is superior, Black Panther’s vibranium armor doesn’t act just like a normal protective gear. Its ability to retain kinetic energy and dissipate it as force fields can be quite handy if used properly. Also, Black Panther has the ability to summon the skills of all the previous Black Panthers, along with his own martial arts proficiency, genius intellect, and superhuman abilities granted by the heart-shaped herb.
3. Beat: Hawkeye
The best marksman Marvel has to offer, Hawkeye has accomplished many impressive feats that make him a valuable member of the Avengers. Although Hawkeye does carry a few trick arrows in his quiver, most of them will be rendered useless against the Mandalorian’s Beskar armor. Also, Mando has proved to be an expert marksman and one shot from his blaster can actually disintegrate the archer.
2. Lose To: Spider-Man
The Mandalorian is known for his quick wits and adaptable strategies during fights. His jet pack, blaster guns, and whistling birds also make him a dangerous opponent. But sadly, Spider-Man regularly fights a flying supervillain hellbent on destroying him. Yes, Green Goblin. Spider-Man’s superhuman agility, speed, endurance, strength, and senses put Mando at a severe disadvantage. A web-patch to his helmet will definitely make things awkward since Mandalorians never take off their helmets. Well, this is the way.
1. Beat: Falcon
The successor to Captain America, Falcon is a formidable superhero without any real superpowers. As he relies on mechanical wings to fly and fight, this might put him at a disadvantage. A blaster shot to his wings or a surprise attack from the whistling birds pretty much brings him back to the ground. Not to mention, handguns don’t work against Beskar armor. Unless Mando is crushed by the entire weight of the Star Wars franchise over his shoulders, this fight should go to him.
