Machinima’s “Super Power Beat Down” series knows its audience. They pit popular fictional characters against each other in fights to the death (like Superman vs. Thor or Captain America vs. Master Chief) and let viewers vote on the outcome. Then the SPBD team writes, choreographs, and films the fight scene with solid production values.
The latest fight is Batman vs. Darth Vader. Batman lands on the Death Star demanding the release of Superman (apparently hostage) and Vader decides to deal with the breach himself. This was my first experience with the series, and it was surprisingly brutal. Hit the jump to watch.
