The fight seems to have a clear winner. It’s a mind-controller vs. a man who uses a doll as a weapon, either way we should analyze both characters. In this clash Puppet Master has everything he needs to create his own figure, but since this is their first encounter he would have to create his figure as he avoids getting killed. The clay sculpture needs to be shaped and colored the same as its victim to work. Getting killed may not be that easy.
Ventriloquist has his puppet named Scarface that is a calculated cold blooded killer wielding a Tommy Gun and there is no way Philip Masters can recover from gun shots. Arnold Wesker also has his own hand gun just in case. Now let’s say that Puppet Master somehow manages to get over the low chances of creating the voodoo sculpture before getting shot. Then he has to win right? Not necessarily. Puppet Master can only control one person at a time and given how Albert Wesker has his multiple personality disorder there is no way of telling if his magic will work for sure. So it looks like the Ventriloquist manages to win! Didn’t expect this to be the outcome, did ya?
WINNER: VENTRILOQUIST (DC Comics)
