Awesome GBR Versus! Both are silver, samurai-like in appearance, morally conflicted, and mutants. Let’s break these characters down and see what makes them tick!
Silver Samurai is a mutant that can project a tachyon field around anything. Typically, he only surrounds his sword with the tachyon field empowerment. This gives his sword the ability to cut through almost any material, with the exception of adamantium. Some of his earliest battles were fought against Spiderman, including a battle on the set of Saturday Night Live when Spidey was hosting. Speaking of SNL, I should do a “Silver Samurai versus Samurai Futaba” article!
Silver Samurai’s arch-nemesis is often considered to be Wolverine, the ol’ canuckle head himself. If he can stand in the ring with Wolverine, you got some mad street cred yo!
Because Silver Samurai is a master of Bushido and lives by it’s code, he is an honorable warrior. Wolverine respected the Samurai so much that he entrusted his daughter to Silver Samurai to raise and protect.
Unfortunately, Silver Samurai met his end at the hands of a group of ninjas from the Red Right Hand. His son took up the mantle and is now the current Silver Samurai.
For this battle, I will grant Silver Samurai his light-weight samurai armor, tachyon empowered sword, and the teleportation ring that he has frequently been seen using while working with Viper.
I am not even going to begin to try to type detailed account of Stryfe’s convoluted origins. The watered down version is that when Cable was born, he was infected with the techno-organic virus. He was whisked away into the future where there is a possibility that more advanced medical technology can contain the virus. Fearing the worst, they cloned Cable. This clone later became known as Stryfe. Apocalypse kidnapped the clone of Cable, AKA Stryfe, raised him and made him more powerful because he plans on possessing Stryfe’s body when his own becomes to frail and weak.
Stryfe is an omega level mutant with the ability of telekinesis and telepathy. He was also genetically modified by Apocalypse, horseman-style. This genetic augmentation grants him superhuman strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, and reflexes. His armor is also made of an unknown durable alloy.
I have to give it to Stryfe. To me this is a landslide victory. He is an OMEGA LEVEL MUTANT. The one advantage that Silver Samurai has is his sword, which could probably cut through Stryfes armor. I say probably, because the alloy that Stryfe’s armor is unknown. Marvel wiki, states that Stryfe’s armor is “invulnerable to physical attack.” Strife is also stronger and faster. It is unlikely that the Silver Samurai can even land a hit. In the odd chance that he is able to connect with his sword by teleporting, and said sword does indeed penetrate Stryfe’s armor, he better mortally wound him because Stryfe’s devastating blows will decimate Samurai’s light-weight bushido armor.
Not to mention that Silver Samurai is vulnerable to telekinetic and telepathic attacks. Honestly, even the hulking movie version of the Silver Samurai doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell against Stryfe.
