Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Star-Lord is in trouble again — but this time, he isn’t battling a rogue Kree zealot or his insane celestial father. Instead, he’s tangling with another pop culture icon: the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett of Star Wars fame. On the latest episode of “Super Power Beat Down,” Star-Lord and Boba Fett go toe-to-toe in a heist-gone-wrong.
The video opens with Star-Lord arriving on the Moon of Mustafara; Star Wars fans will recognize the volcanic planet in the background as the planet where Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader. However, there are no Lords of the Sith here — just a bounty hunter on the job. Soon, Star-Lord retrieves his prize: a Green Lanern ring. Moments later, he comes face-to-face with Boba Fett, who is after the very same quarry. The two quickly come to blows, and only one intergalactic scoundrel survives the ensuing battle.
If you want to jump straight to the fight, head to the 5:45 mark in the video below:
If you watch the battle through the end, you’ll see that Boba Fett and Star-Lord aren’t the only fan-favorite characters to show up in the video. Just as Star-Lord wins the fight, none other than Hal Jordan arrives to retrieve his ring. Though comic book fans are likely to cheer Green Lantern’s cameo, Star-Lord looks a little less than thrilled; after all, he just lost his job!
Now on its 22nd episode, “Super Power Beat Down” — which also brought you Wonder Woman and Wolverine’s battle to the death — is described as “the show where you debate, discuss and then vote to see who would win in an epic battle” by its host, Jennifer Wenger. In order to prep for the video, the creators behind the series took to the floor at Wonder Con, where they polled fans to see who would win in this epic space battle.
