The first punch on this metaphorical struggle was thrown by Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. After being reminded of Blue Beetle, the 2 have been fast to dismiss him as a potential opponent. “No, it is too straightforward as a result of we all know all his strikes. You taught him,” Macchio identified to Zabka, who concurred. So no Blue Beetle, however then who can be an excellent opponent? For Zabka, the reply was a really well-known villain.

“I do not know why the Joker involves thoughts. I feel that may be a enjoyable struggle,” he shared. Macchio selected the corresponding character as a result of their characters, Johnny and Daniel, at all times need to be in lockstep. “Batman as a result of Batman would not actually have a superpower exterior of all his devices,” he stated, including that he would in all probability get the brief finish of the stick regardless.

Would both of them be capable to beat Zabka’s different choose, Donatello from the Ninja Turtles? Debatable, however they’d in all probability fare higher than in opposition to Dallas Dupree Young’s choose: the Green Goblin. The traditional villain is a enjoyable alternative, even when he solely picked it as a result of he thought “his character in Spider-Man: No Way Home was actually cool.” Griffin Santopietro, in the meantime, put lots of thought into his reply. “I imply, I really feel like I’m going to lose any struggle if I’m going up in opposition to a superhero or supervillain,” he steered, displaying correct appreciation of the power of those characters. “So, I’m going to decide on both Superman or Batman, particularly.

“My factor with Batman,” Sanpietro continued, “is I feel he isn’t going to kill me, however I’m going to [have to] rush to the hospital proper after we struggle,” whereas Superman would possibly simply “knock me out and go away.” Oona O’Brien, in the meantime, picked Shang-Chi, utilizing kind of the identical argument as Santopietro, that he’d be “good about it.” She additionally, nevertheless, added that “it could be an honor to get my butt kicked by him.”

If anybody was going to select up the proverbial gauntlet thrown by Macchio and Zabka, it was Xolo Maridueña. When he was instructed that Zabka indicated combating Blue Beetle can be too straightforward, he had some phrases in response whereas Jacob Bertrand, Gianni DeCenzo, Mary Mouser, and Peyton List all laughed. Once the warmth of the second had handed, although, he had a solution: Nightcrawler. Obviously, Maridueña instructed us, “Blue Beetle is my favourite, however Nightcrawler is my second favourite.”

Bertrand was filled with confidence in his personal choose, The Flash. “I really feel like I’m a bit of bit sooner than him,” he claimed. “I might have an edge there, and I feel I’m additionally a bit of smarter — simply, like, [an] improve, I suppose.” The Flash is a daring alternative however would absolutely be an fascinating course for the way forward for the franchise. The different solid members did not want to consider it an excessive amount of, both. List selected Zoe Saldana, half as a result of she would like to struggle her, and half as a result of “I might love to only get crushed by her.” Similarly, Mouser picked Elektra as a result of “at the least if I’m going to get beat down, hopefully, I’d be taught one thing.”

Yuji Okumoto, nevertheless, had maybe one of the best reply out of all of them, one which ties into Cobra Kai in an effective way. “If it is Andrew Garfield as a result of I do know he is a giant fan of the present, I say Spider-Man.” Thomas Ian Griffith went even additional, saying that he’d surrender in opposition to Garfield’s Spider-Man. “I’m sorry, go forward. You can win,” he’d say. Perhaps such actions aren’t precisely within the Cobra Kai spirit, however his reply continues to be fairly enjoyable.
