    Doom: Though magick isn't his first and foremost offense, he will know going in that it's what he will need to use against Gentleman Ghost, and he will waste no time in preparing a mystical onslaught to ensure a quick and tidy victory.


    Nimrod: Taskmaster would win if this were a "who is more awesome" contest. Unfortunately it's a "who would win in a fight" contest.

    Doom: Gentleman Ghost can be harmed by magic and those of royal blood.

    Fight 1: DOOM! This is almost a non-fight.

    Fight 2: Nimrod. Doom promises to re-release the Legacy virus if Nimrod wins the tourny, so Nimrod walks into Los Alamos and incinerates the whole place without a second robot thought.

    Doom. "Hey GG, what hurts you?" "Oh, magic and those of royal blood." "Awesome."

    Taskmaster. Nothing I say will give him the win this time around, so I'm not gonna bother voting for Nimrod.

    DOOM - the magic he wields is more than enough for the Ghostman. No amount of classy will get him out of this one.

    Nimrod - Because Ultron is going to take him down hard.

    Doom: Because Gentleman Ghost is presumably susceptible to magic and is actually more vulnerable in hell than Doom, who has visited there many times.

    Taskmaster: Because Nimrod is logical to a fault and ultimately more concerned with preserving the timestream and his ultimate goals than he is with a tourney, and both can be easily exploited by someone who has hundreds of similar situations in his perfect memory from fiction and his own crazy reality about how to beat automatons with simple sentences.

    Doom, obviously.

    Nimrod, because aside from those two pages of Taskmaster kicking ass and taking names I don't remember seeing him win a fight for years. Moon Knight's beaten him up, Deadpool's beaten him up, Spider-Woman's beaten him up, etc. His winning ratio is dangerously close to that of Stilt-Man.

    Doom: Do I even need to justify this? Doom uses magic to bind GG to a physical form then sets it on fire, or something. Magic + Royal Blood for the win.

    Nimrod: Taskmaster simply can't do enough damage to him, and I can't see any likely situation where Tasky outsmarts him. Nimrod stomps his ass.

    Doom- Doom is a pretty good sorcerer, so he should have no problems with the good Gentleman Ghost.

    Taskmaster- Let's assume this fight takes place in a comic where TM is the protagonist. Oh look, he wins, since all of his losses have occurred in books where he was the antagonist, and only there to get beaten up and make the heroes look good, he suddenly gains magical winning powers.

    Doom because he has magic and is royalty

    Taskmaster because he has been shown out-manuevering someone who was faster and possibly stronger than Nimrod. Plus nimrod has that whole logical-paradox weakness. All taskmaster has to do is lure him into the nuke silo, dodge his attacks, and lock him in the place while Tasky sets off the nuke after he gets to the bunker. Terrorists win.

    Taskmaster is like "Nimrod, there is a mutant inside that nuclear missile." and Nimrod goes to check it out and Taskmaster sets off the nuke.

    It is a flawless plan.
