    This is a competition between two military suppliers. Who would come out on top? OsCorp's glider and Goblin forumla? (movie version)

    Or Stark Enterprises Iron Man suit?

    This is purely the movie versions.

    I hate to say it, but I dont see the glider keeping up with Stark.

    It would be a huge battle, but Iron Man would probably win.

    Iron Man would win, no doubt, but I would still put my bucks on Osborn. Always have and always will.

    well so far we have seen that Iron Man can break the sound barrier and that Goblin can fly about the same speed Spidey web slings, so easy question

    Iron man will most likley be the winner.
    And if you mean wich companie is the better supplier.
    I would say Stark Industries.
    Since the goblin formula will make you go kinda crazy.
    there army will be less intrested in it Atleast thats what I think:im:

    Actually, for the sake of cost and repeatability, i would probably go with the goblin formulae...

    an army of people on it (with the additions of the healing factor) would be fantabulous, especially harry's version without the mind altering side effects.

    the gliders also offer good maneourvability and are generally light weight. the costume deals with heavy arms fire pretty well.

    While Iron man's armour is potentially good, ,even the cost of two would be astronomical. Saying this though, you wouldnt need many to deal with any sort of conflict. Also the transfering of the suits form location to location as well with all the technical staff and spare parts would just be a crazy bill for to fork out for the sake of war, not to mention with any form of system or life support failure, the wearer is completely defeseless.

    Once Tony shorts out the goblin glider, it's over.

    Dude, you have to realise that this isn't a Combat vs poll.

    It's a 'If i Had to spend 3 billion pounds to fund an army for an war that may last a minimum of five years, what is the best best for how far my funds will go' thread.

    it's really not applicable to compare them otherwise since we haven't seen one of them in action.

    Tony still wins. There's no way Osborn could take him at the bank.

    And okay, if we're talking only about who's got the better tech, and never going to use it, Stark Industries is more heavily focused on the designing and manufacturing of military technology and weaponry.

    OsCorp just has a weapons division. Their efforts aren't solely focused on engineering advanced heavy artillery. Their research has more to do with human anatomy and bio-chemistry manipulation.

    and you wouldnt say that self regenerative technology as well as enhanced human capabilities is something you'd prefer to buy into rather than vastly complex mecha suit.

    use the ultimates for example, iron man's suit uses incredibly amount of resources and would require a team of approximately a 100 men (per suit) as well as the astronomical cost of just purchasing one. As for repair and maintenance, you would have already lost your campaign before it started if you were to purchase even 10.

    you only have to look at all the comic references to the super soldier serum and how important it is to realist that bioengineering is a much more lucrative and attractive ideal to a military than mecha.

    That's true, Tony's bills enormously topple Osborn's, I'm sure, but still, he can handle it. Also, yeah, the military does seem to be more interested in biological warfare these days, but the only way to really be sure which weapon is more effective is to test them against each other. That brings us back to Iron Man vs Green Goblin. Each company's ultimate weapon. One thing I would agree to, is that it couldn't be just any old whoever in the suit. Tony is the guy with the expertise and wits to pull out a win.

    This looks like a just-for-the-sake-of-it match to me. It's obvious Tony would win on all ends. He's got the brains, brawn, bread, and pimp on Osborn.

    Well it's not whether he can handle it, the thread starter has asked it from our point of view.

    i.e. we are the government and we are the ones who have to fork out the bill at the end of the day.

    and a fair assessment isnt one suit vs the other because it doesn't cost as much. Also putting tony in the suit isn't fair either because tony is not going to be an operative if the suit is ever purchased for combat.

    a fair assessment would be to pay for 100 million pounds worth of each product and man as many relative soldiers in it as possible. They would all get approximately one week to become familiar with all the equipment and all the technical assistants would also need one week in order to familiarise themselves with the repair work required.

    in all i see it like this.

    one rogue soldier with no spare parts (because one couldn't afford it)

    up against 50 operatives all with super strength, armour suits, regenerative healing and a full array of weaponary seen on harry's glider. (bombs, blades, flame thrower equivalent), which would also include spare supplies.

    set them fifty miles apart from one another on a cross section of terrain and ask them to intercept and try to take the other group out.


    At the end of the day, without a decent support network, the ironman suit will run out of fuel and the glider soldiers would just come and take him out. If you thrown enough decent numbers at something, then it's bound to work.

    I'll be honest, you've totally lost me, lol. I mean, I get where you're going with the budgets, costs, and consequences of those costs, but I don't think Demogoblin intended for us to get this literal and realistic in our discusssions. The way the idea seemed presented, to me, was Goblin's tech against Iron Man's.

    I'm just looking at it realistically...

    It's like comparing a gamecube to an PS2 and although one may be graphically superior, the other has games that are more affordable and are more to your taste but then the PS2 has backward compatability allowing you to play all your old PS1 games still.

    As a buyer, it's rare that function alone is a factor when you purchase a product and that's the point i'm trying to illuminate.

    Perhaps i was just excited when i saw it may not be a straight forward and fairly mundane 'vs' thread. If so, it should be closed, everyone knows a single iron man unit can outperform a single goblin unit.

    If you want a good and fair match, you should pit Stark Industries against Wayne Enterprises. You’re in for an everlasting hell, but I told you it’d be a good match. ;)

    not really, out of the three wayne enterprises provides the worst stuff. it wasn't even profitable for its own government to fund into and hence why it was stored away.

    fictional companies that are up there are doom's, oscorp's (originally and also considering they own ock's tentacle tecnology), stark's and waynes.

    Well, the reason I’d think it would be a good match is because either company is just about neck-and-neck in finance resources, both heads of the companies are genius inventors and peerless tactical thinkers, plus you’ll never see an end to a debate involving Batman vs anyone.

    anyone arguing that wayne's tech is better than stark's is an idiot. Even batfans eat humble pie.

    I guess LexCorp is somewhere in the bottom of the barrel. Not a surprise considering he keeps losing control of it.

    saying that,he's the only one who went bankrupt...

    i'm actually not sure how good he would be ofensievly when it comes to military arsenal, he didn't seem particularly well prepared for silver surfer although time really wasn't on his side. I'd definitely put him behind, doom, stark and oscorp (probably tied with oscorp).

    I think in the comics they've stated Reed's mind is moving so quickly he actually forgets to properly manage his funds...

    I may be in the minority here, but I can't seem to help think that Osbrorn could take Stark.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Stark, and know that he's capable of a heck of a lot... But Osborn is seriously devious.

    I'm not talking about the current status quote of Osborn with all the nanites in his blood. I'm imagining a scenario of their current superpowers/intellect, but Osborn has his full resources cunning and guile. Rather like just before Peter took him down in Millar's MK Spider-Man. (Sorry, but I pretend that BS about Cage taking him down never happened.)

    Although, I do believe Stark mental/physical/business abilities to far outweigh Osborns, but I'd imagine Osborn would use the fact that Stark keeps himself insanley busy to his advantage and do something leftfield with no warning

    With the status quo mentioned before. ESPECIALLY with the film versions of the characters.
