Fanboy Faceoff by ClevverMovies is an interactive online show on YouTube whereby the presenter of the show will discuss a hypothetical "fanboy face-off" involviing some of the better known fictional characters from the media of films, television, graphic novels, and video games to determine the winner. The internet show also provides viewers with the opportunity to vote via the comments section (YouTube) and Twitter (Twitter.com/ClevverMovies) for the protagonist they believe would win a hypothetical fight against another character or group.
A follow-up video, Fanboy Faceoff Results, provides the result of the fight as decided by the viewers.
The following dialogue (below) is a real example (abridged) of the host, Tatiana Carrier, discussing a hypothetical battle for the show, Fanboy Faceoff: ClevverMovies:
"It looks like many of you just can't get enough of the eternal battle between Marvel and DC. Today arguably two of the strongest characters each has to offer - Superman and Thor - go head to head in the latest Fanboy Faceoff!"
"...Like Superman, Thor, known as the God of Thunder, possesses superhuman strength, speed and stamina. He has the ability to fly using his magical hammer, Mjolnir which he also uses to deflect projectiles and smash his foes. He also has the ability to summon the elements like lightning, rain and wind. He is a skilled warrior and the strongest of all the Asgardians. He too has a high resistance to physical injury and is virtually invulnerable. Unlike Superman though, he has no direct weakness, though is vulnerable to extremely powerful magic.
With two such equally matched opponents this should definitely be a tough faceoff. Obviously if Thor is able to get his hands on some Kryptonite, there's really no contest, but what if that wasn't an option? Who do you think would win if the battle was fought on even ground? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @ClevverMovies with the hashtag #CMFF. Until next time, I'm Tatiana Carrier, thanks for watching!"

Blade is a 1998 American vampire-superhero action film starring Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson and Stephen Dorff, and is loosely based on the Marvel Comics character Blade. Snipes plays Blade, a human-vampire hybrid who protects humans from vampires.
The film was directed by Stephen Norrington and written by David S. Goyer. Despite mixed reviews, Blade grossed $70 million at the U.S. box office, and $131.2 million worldwide. It was followed by two sequels, Blade II and Blade: Trinity.
Facts about Blade (1998)
1. Wesley Snipes became attached to the project because he was in discussions with Marvel Comics to be Black Panther, a project that is still pending as of 2005.
2. Jet Li was offered the role to play Deacon Frost, but opted to do Lethal Weapon 4 instead.
3. LL Cool J was originally considered for the part of Blade.
4. When David S. Goyer first pitched the idea of doing a Blade movie, the executives of New Line felt there were only three actors who could possible do the role: Wesley Snipes, Denzel Washington and Laurence Fishburne, but in Goyer's mind, Snipes was always the perfect choice for the character of Blade.
5. Kris Kristofferson's character Whistler was created for Blade's cameo on the Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon show. He was liked so much by Marvel CEOs that he was adopted into the Marvel Universe.
Despite the fact that the Marvel character, Blade, was essentially unknown to the general public (at the time), this factor did not stop the film from being successful.Blade (1998) is seen as having been one of the better comic book movies of its time and started the trend for much more of these films:
1. Blade was one of the first successful comic book based films to be released after the disastrous performance of Batman & Robin and Steel. Its success, along with the even bigger success of the earlier Men in Black, convinced Marvel to develop the X-Men film series as well as the Spider-Man film series.
2. IGN ranked Blade as the 63rd greatest comic character stating that Blade is the most iconic hero to spring from the period of monster-themed stories. UGO Networks placed Blade as one of the top heroes of entertainment quoting that "Blade has to get props for being the most obscure Marvel character to ever get a film deal... and television deal, too!"

Thanos is a fictional comic book character, a supervillain that has appeared in books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 (Feb. 1973) and was created by writer-artist Jim Starlin. Debuting in the Bronze Age of Comic Books, the character has been featured in over four decades of Marvel continuity and a self-titled series. Thanos has appeared in other Marvel-endorsed products, including animated television series, arcade and video games, toys and trading cards. Thanos appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a non-speaking cameo at the end of the 2012 film The Avengers, and Josh Brolin portrays him in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and will reprise the role for future films. Thanos was ranked number 47 on IGN's top 100 comic book villains of all time.
Thanos is a mutant member of the race of superhumans known as the Titanian Eternals. The character possesses abilities common to the Eternals, but amplified to a higher degree through a combination of his mutant Eternal heritage, bionic amplification, mysticism, and power bestowed by the abstract entity, Death. Demonstrating enormous superhuman strength, stamina, and durability, Thanos can absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy and is capable of telekinesis, telepathy and matter manipulation. Thanos is an accomplished hand-to-hand combatant, having been trained in the art of war on Titan.
Thanos is a genius in virtually all known fields of advanced science and has created technology far exceeding contemporary Earth science. He often employs a transportation chair capable of space flight, force field projection, teleportation, time travel and movement through alternate universes. Thanos is also a master strategist and uses a space vessel called Sanctuary II as a base of operations.
Jason Charles Bourne is a fictional character and the protagonist of a series of novels by Robert Ludlum and subsequent film adaptations. He first appeared in the novel The Bourne Identity (1980), which was adapted for television in 1988. The novel was very loosely adapted in 2002 into a feature film under the same name and starred Matt Damon in the lead role.
Jason Bourne has a tormented past, which continues to influence him throughout his lifetime. Jason Bourne is but one of many aliases used by David Webb. Webb is a career foreign service officer and a specialist in Far Eastern affairs. Before the events in The Bourne Identity, Webb had a Thai wife named Dao and two children named Joshua and Alyssa in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Webb's wife and two children were inadvertently killed during the Vietnam War when a fighter plane strayed into Cambodia, dropped two bombs and strafed a spot near the Mekong River. However, unknown to Bourne, Joshua survived. Due to Cambodia's neutrality in the war, every nation disclaimed the plane, and, therefore, no one took responsibility for the incident. Having nothing left to live for, Webb went to Saigon and, under the careful guidance of Alex Conklin, ended up training for an elite Top Secret Special Forces unit called Medusa. Within that select organization Webb was known only by his code name, Delta One.
