Robert De Niro’s tough guys may come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: you don’t want to get on their bad side. His mobsters like The Untouchables‘s Al Capone and The Godfather, Part II’s Michael Corleone wouldn’t think twice before ordering someone to tuck you in with the fishes. But men like Cape Fear‘s Max Cady and Taxi Driver‘s Travis Bickle would relish doing the deed themselves. So which De Niro killing machine is the deadliest? Vote below… if you dare.
During Comic Book Men Episode 3, “Commercial”, Kevin Smith and the men of the Secret Stash debated which comic book character would be the most fun to have a drink with. But they have yet to weigh in on the mother of all super-questions: Who is the mightiest superhero of all time? You can make your own choice right now with a tournament pitting the greatest superheroes against each other. Is the Hulk’s strength any match for Batman’s arsenal of weapons? How do Iron Man’s defenses compare to Superman’s? Could Elektra put an end to Catwoman’s nine lives? It’s time for you to choose who would win if the defenders of justice did battle against one another.
Movies like Casino, The Untouchables and GoodFellas all have a common thread in that they get film-goers acquainted with true historic mobsters like Sam “Ace” Rothstein, Al Capone and Henry Hill. But can any of those real-life characters compete with the mythical stature of a fictional gangster like Vito Corleone? (Or his son Michael, for that matter?) When it comes to mafiosos, The Godfather rules. But which Godfather? That’s up to you to decide.
Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather epic brought several powerful Capos to the screen (and even more tough guys who never made it to the very top). And while by the end of The Godfather III‘s closing credits, the reign of Michael (Al Pacino) has ended, things might’ve turned out differently sooner if you’d armed him, Vito (Marlon Brando), Fredo Corleone (John Cazale) and Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall), put them all in a bar, then had them shoot it out to a final finish. Who’s the toughest mafioso in the greatest mob trilogy ever made? And who will end up sleeping with the fishes?
