Who would win? (What if? 2)

Post by Zero »

QUESTION 1
What if there was a showdown between Alex Fine and J.A.R.V.I.S. (an A.I. created by Tony Stark aka Ironman)? Who do you think would win? Why?

QUESTION 2
Now what if there was a showdown between Team A and Team B, where
Team A = Alex Fine and Gideon (an A.I. made by Barry Alan aka the Flash) &
Team B = J.A.R.V.I.S. and Cyborg.
Who would win? Team A or B? Why?

Considering that Alex's power to run away can only happen if a computer is nearby, I would say he would most likely lose most battles. :lol:

I agree with hsimone (again). It would be pretty unfair considering Alex has to be near a computer. All they would have to do is fight him out in the open. No contest. They win.

Agreed, it wouldn't really be fair. Also, there really is no mention of any physical strength that Alex may have, so that would also be a negative for him if he were in a fighting situation.

This showdown is off-course taking place inside the digital world as A.I.'s (i.e. J.A.R.V.I.S. and Gideon) can't exist in the physical world. The only ones who can exist in both the worlds are Alex and Cyborg(who is like half human half computer), so the team up is good.


So according to me the winner would be Team B as J.A.R.V.I.S. is simply great! :mrgreen:

Huh...guess that shows you how much I know about all who are involved in the showdown. :lol: I would then agree with you Team B would win. :D

Well, actually (in the movies anyway) Jarvis does get turned into an actual person. So, I guess I was basing it off of that.

Yes that is true, and then he's called as Vision as he has one of the 6 infinity stones called as Mind Stone embedded into his forehead by Thor. So now he's kinda God. But I love J.A.R.V.I.S. more. :mrgreen2: :mrgreen:

I bet, team B would win. with the description of Ironman in the story, he is a genius and a wide range of knowledge on computers considering that he has teammate which is a cyborg.

I really want to say J.A.R.V.I.S but that would be the Vision's win and not J.A.R.V.I.S per se. We could use the similarity where despite Ultron hacking and almost destroying J.A.R.V.I.S, the latter still managed a rebound and stalled the former long enough for the Avenger's to destroy him but that was in the case of a sentient sorta-still a robot. If we're taking into consideration the fact that Alex is human we might have a different argument. Team B would win. No question.

Hands down, Jarvis would win over Alex Fine. Jarvis is smart, creative, and innovative. Alex just runs around being selfish.
