There are many stories about people using ancient, magical weapons against modern armament, and they’re all pretty ridiculous to one extent or another. This is my take on that situation.
Keep in mind that Ebhothe’s armor and knives have certain powers they pass on to their user, but the fact remains that these items were forged to battle enemies who used clubs, knives, swords, and other very primitive arms. When used against 21st-century weaponry, a number of interesting questions arise.
Sure, the armor will keep you alive, but what about tasers? Tear gas? How about being hit in the chest with an RPG-29 Vampir, as we see on today’s page? You’ll survive the impact, but at the very least it’ll knock the wind out of you.
In short: you cannot die when you’re wearing the armor of The Bloodied Ones, but what about the basic laws of physics? I actually calculated the impact between an RPG-29 projectile and a 20-year old girl at the top of her jump arc ,and how far it might throw her. Then I dolled it up a bit so it would look good on screen.
So . . . think about that while you’re watching this fight unfold, because I know there are many of you who grew up exposed to stories of little Japanese schoolgirls kicking everyone’s ass with swords and guns and shit. And I gotta tell you: this isn’t going to be one of those fights.
And if you’re a student of Newtonian Physics, feel free to double-check my math during this battle!
