Hal Jordan versus Barry Allen - At Jenga

Who would win this battle of skills?!?!

At first it seems like super-speed would work against you in playing Jenga. I keep imagining Barry muttering something about "if I can only vibrate my molecules fast enough," then the card table shakes and the tower falls to the ground.

But I submit this to you: Barry could move fast enough to stabilize the tower as soon as he saw it start to fall. You have to think of the whole world as moving in slow motion through Barry's eyes.

Plus, as you know if you read the Absorbascon, Hal Jordan is a tool.

Gotta be Barry; aren't Jenga pieces yellowish?

Isaac beat me to the slow-mo thought.

Plus, Hal would hit his head on the tower.

Without powers, though, I gotta go with Hal. Test pilots have steady hands, and are awfully cool under pressure.

With powers, it's a draw, I think. I assume that Hal would be using one of his ring-created hands, which wouldn't topple the tower unless Hal wanted it to. Barry, though, could knock it over as much every time, and stabilize or even rebuild it before Hal even noticed.

This would make a great theme week for somebody. Batman vs. Kyle Rayner -- at charades! Superman vs. Hawkman -- at Twister! Captain America vs. Iron Man -- at billiards!
