LXB | March Madness: Martin Riggs vs Jack Bauer

For the first three weeks of March, we're going to answer the question, one match at a time, of who would win if 12 movie tough guys were airdropped into an abandoned city and only one could escape.

Though this is a close match in terms of toughness and ability, Bauer's (relative) sanity and lack of a death wish give him the clear edge. It's not a short match, but it is one with an easy-to-pick winner.

This is the first outcome of yours that I'm just not on board with. Bauer is pretty unstoppable, but in this abandoned city, I don't think he'd have all of the resources he's used to working with (he can't have Chloe hack into the security cameras and tell him where Riggs is, for instance). Plus, Riggs is more than a physical match for Bauer, he's got some martial arts skills of his own, he's probably orders of magnitude better than Bauer with a gun (Riggs is a crack marksman), and Riggs is very good at making creative use of the things around him. Plus, there's that whole dislocating-his-shoulder-at-will thing. Maybe Bauer wins, but it ain't easy for him.

When you're right you're right. I'm taking your points about Jack into account in tomorrow's match: JB vs JB. :)
