To celebrate this week’s release of the War Goddess Volume 1 graphic novel, Boundless Comics proudly presents daily entries written by Mr. Action himself, Mike Wolfer! Every day, we’ll pitch a match-up to him, taking one of the characters from Lady Death and pitting her (or him) against one of the War Goddess roster! Who will win?
Today’s Match: Death Queen Vs. Hellina
After centuries of torment at the hands of hideous, supernatural creatures, Death Queen has amassed the greatest wealth of magical knowledge and abilities ever seen in the Underrealm, making her the undisputed occult superpower of her world. And she’s absolutely insane. Hellina’s powers spring from supernatural origins as well, but are concentrated solely on the manifestation and manipulation of the element of fire.
Without a doubt, Death Queen is the most fearsome foe anyone could face, not only for her incredible magical reserves, but also because of her unpredictable mental state brought about by her insanity. In terms of magical abilities, Death Queen’s power far surpasses Hellina’s, but the raw, elemental power of fire cannot be undervalued. And Death Queen is merely flesh and blood, which burns quite easily. Hellina could probably utilize the stability of her own mental state to out-think and manipulate Death Queen and achieve a victory, but the odds of that are very slim. Because of the torture she endured at the hands of demons, Death Queen is out of her freaking mind, but she is also a master strategist, so unless Hellina got in a really lucky shot to incinerate her instantaneously, Death Queen would defeat Hellina and probably show absolutely no mercy while she did it.
