    This a fun tag team styled MCU battle thread to break up the monotony of our once a week MCU Fights. It can be 2 on 2, 2 on 2 on 1, 3 on 2, or even 3 on 1. Keep in mind this is purely for just fun and doesn't in any way effect our Power Tier. I've also recently added the new option to be able to change your votes after voting incase your change your mind.

    Valkyrie's the MVP here. The same level as Gamora when it comes to skill but with an Asgardian's ridiculous strength/healing factor/durability (i.e. significantly above Drax, closer to Ronan). Gamora's sword and Rocket's heavy weapons are still enough to hurt her but she'd have a chance at taking this 1 vs 3.

    Since you've given her Hawkeye (good counter to Rocket) and Winter Soldier (superhuman/skilled enough to take on Gamora until Valkyrie finishes off Drax) as backup, Team Val takes this pretty easily.

    I got the GotG. Gamora is being seriously underrated here. In Guardians 2, she was able to easily hold Drax with one hand in a crashing spaceship and the pressure alone should show how strong she is. Also Drax had the entire Kiln prison afraid of him. I think we look at how funny he is that we don't take into account how much of an assassin he is. And Rocket Raccoon is seriously being underrated here. Give him a minute and he'd think of a weapon to take them all out.

    Okay, if you threw in Groot or Mantis and Starlord then GOTG takes this - Star Lord being key player.

    However, without Peter I come down on the side of Valkyrie and co. Valkyrie defeats Gamora, TWS holds off Drax, Hawkeye takes out Rocket. Once Val is done with Gamora then it's a case of mopping up. The amount of gadgets that Rocket has access to also makes a big difference - but unless he's got some really impressive stuff he and team are going down.

    Team GOTG. Rocket is the key element in this matchup.

    Rocket vs. Hawkeye - Winner Rocket: Bullets & lasers are faster than bolts its very simple lol. I know Hawkeye is resourceful (vision electricity trap in mind) but Rocket is on a whole other level.

    Drax vs. WS - Winner Drax: Drax is just too strong & too durable for Bucky to finish him imo. Especially when he really has one limb only that can compete with Drax. I feel like even though Bucky is far more skilled a fighter Drax could take 10 of Bucky's shot just to give one.

    Valkyrie vs. Gamora - Winner: Valkryrie Gamora is called the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy but I don't think we see enough of that to ever really get that feeling from Gamora. Valkyrie though in a short time shows incredible proficiency with her dragon fang.


    Team GOTG for the win

    How does Bucky hold off Drax?

    I go for the GOTG trio.
    They have a more well rounded team with skill, power and brains.

    The way I see it Bucky only has to hold off Drax or Gamora for less than a minute whilst Valkyrie (easily the most dangerous fighter here) overwhelms the other one.

    Bucky's a Captain America level superhuman/martial artist who's taken multiple hits from Iron Man and kept fighting. He's also an expert marksman. It's well within his capabilities to outskill Drax for a minute and tank a few hits if he needs to. Alternatively, he's dangerous enough to hang with Gamora and might even beat her.

    Meanwhile Hawkeye (perfect marksman and decent weapons) and Rocket (expert marksman and superior weapons) feels like a 50:50 marksmanship contest to me and I expect they'd keep each other busy for a few minutes either way. Even presuming Rocket wins he won't stand much chance against Valkyrie/WS.

    Winter Soldier doesn't seem strong enough when not "under spell" Team GotG will prevail.

    Valkyrie > Gamora
    Winter Soldier > Drax
    Hawkeye < Rocket

    Comes down to Vakyrie+Winter Soldier vs Rocket and I honestly can't make my mind up there cos he's a sly little rabbit and I wouldn't write him off even against the two of them.

    EDIT: Having just noticed the "Knives only" rule for Bucky I'm going to go with Rocket as the last man standing if he's allowed a gun.
