    Love me both some Martin and some Tolkien… but none of the matchups posed here are very interesting… With the exception of the big guns in Tolkien’s series, they lose across the board. Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas are probably going to beat the Mountain, Darkstar, and Bronn, but after that, I see most all of the matchups favoring Martin’s guys.
