Who is the better space cowboy?

Serenity and the Millenium Falcon

Captain Malcolm Reynolds

Side Score: 19
VS.

Han Solo

Side Score: 11
3 points

This should be a popularity contest. People don't have the option of Spike Spiegel. [see Cowboy Bebop]

Han Solo is cool. Han is awesome. But Mal is my generation's space cowboy. Every generation brings something new. Nothing against Han.

Mal has to be the best Space Cowboy, because unlike Han Solo he has never been turned into a pussy by his creator. If Han Solo was still the guy who shot Guido first, then yes he is better, but since he isn't, and Mal has proven his utter ruthlessness on many occasions, he is the best space cowboy.

Indeed, they never smooth him out. I was expecting the whole time that the writers would pussify Mal at some point, but they never did. I liked that.

I'm sure I'll be in the minority, but Mal is definitely my pick. He's funnier, more like able, more of a badass, and would probably kick Han's ass in a fight.

Yeah, but can he make the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs?

Can Mal successfully navigate an asteroid field with exciting music playing and being chased by fighters and against 3720 to 1 odds?

Didn't think so.

Mal is a Big Damn Hero. On top of that, his awesome fighting sidekick River is easier to sneak into places that Chewie, and river could probably take Chewie in a fight, and Jayne has the angry-not-smart thing down pat.

Honestly, it's a close thing though. Both have awesome ships and companions, great themesongs and make for exciting misadventures in space. I agree this should be a popularity contest, as there are other space cowboys out there who at least deserve an honourable mention.

Han Solo has his own music video. Can Captain Malcolm Reynolds say the same?

As usual... the one with Han is way cooler.

Probably because of the "furry".
