Barbara Gordon vs. Sam Flynn (352/365)

Posted to Flickr on 18 December 2010. Part of the Duel 365 series.

Barbara Gordon: Librarian and computer expert with a photographic memory who fought crime as the superhero known as "Batgirl" before being tragically struck down by the Joker and who now operates as an information broker for the superhero community known by the hacker alias "Oracle."

Sam Flynn: Tech-savvy young heir to the fortune of his father Kevin Flynn (computer genius and CEO of the technology company ENCOM) who, like his father, is transported to the virtual world of the Grid to do battle against electronic forces vying for control over the system.

If they had to fight, who would win?

Duel 365

Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
