This coming weekend we’ll see Captain America squaring off against Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War, dividing the Avengers into two different teams in a truly epic superhero battle. But before you head to theaters, why not see how Tony Stark and his armored battle suit fares against one of the Transformers? More specifically, how will Iron Man do when he has to face the Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots?
The latest episode of Super Power Beat Down, which is the first digitally animated episode of the web series, brings these two different heroes together for the first time ever. Are Iron Man’s repulsors and missiles any match for the arsenal that Optimus Prime has hidden in his body? Find out in the Iron Man vs Optimus Prime episode of Super Power Beat Down below.
Here’s Iron Man vs Optimus Prime from Bat in the Sun (skip to 5:23 for the actual fight):
While I’m not a fan of the voice used for Tony Stark in this animated short, the voices for JARVIS and Optimus Prime actually aren’t bad. They sound like what they might be if a video game was made featuring the characters where the film stars couldn’t be afforded.
As for the animation, obviously it’s not going to be top notch, but all things considered, it’s still pretty well done. After all, if the price we have to pay for being able to see Iron Man face Optimus Prime is having cheap animation, that’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make, especially since Iron Man calls in the Hulkbuster armor to help get the job done.
So who actually won? Well, the video itself doesn’t exactly pick a clear winner, but the fans who voted on the outcome did, and it was Optimus Prime who beat out Iron Man in a close race with 51% of the vote. I’m not sure that I agree with that, but does it really matter?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
