I went with Han for obvious gun vs. sword reasons previously stated.

I didn't see Han doing too much running inside that carbonite. :-?

Sorry, I keep forgetting most haven't read the books.. But yea, from a movie stand point he kinda got his butt wooped.

So where did he "evade" Boba Fett? Which book(s)?

I voted for Han, but I actually think he's a bit underwhelming in this competition. I don't recall him doing too much in either the movies or the books that I've read that would make me think he'd do very well against Bauer, unless of course it was a gunfight. If they're drawing pistols Hans' your man.

Aw crap. i might be thinking of Shrike. Later in the vong series, there are implications that he had run ins after the carbonite run in. So I guess it never says it directly.

Hmm. I can't recall whether Solo and Boba Fett cross paths after RotJ, but if they did I can't imagine why Fett would "go after" Solo from a financial standpoint. Maybe from a personal vendetta standpoint, that I could see. But I thought that Fett was all about money, and the personal thing didn't figure into his actions?

Shrike and Solo had some run-ins, and eventually in their "final battle" Shrike was killed (although not by Han), so maybe that's what you're thinking of? I don't know. It's been a long time since I've read those books, and none of them were all that memorable.

The Shrike one might have been it. I know Fett always had a vendetta against Han. Might have had something to do with Han beating him in that free for all on Jubilar when Han was 17 or so.

shame on you guys... this is just turning into a movie popularity contest... thus the votes for Han.

Solo isn't even that good of a shot.

You're concerned that a battle with the premise that we want to find the fictional character that is most likely to kill another fictional character mano-a-mano is going to lose its integrity? :-b
