Han Solo or Indiana Jones

Which of these two iconic characters potrayed by Harrison Ford do you prefer? Jones is awesome but i can't say no to how cool he was as the original space outlaw/pirate/smuggler.

Waaay bigger fan of Indiana Jones.

That could be because he was a mountain among pebbles in Indiana Jones, and only a rock among other rocks in Star Wars.

I'm gonna go with Han Solo on this one. Indy is awesome too but he just had this air of negativity in the movies. Han Solo did too but we only saw it in much smaller doses.

Han Solo. Specifically the one from the first two unaltered Star Wars flicks.

Indy, no contest. I guess it helps that I'm a much bigger fan of that series than Star Wars.

Both. Though Han is far, far cooler.

Going on the premise that "Smart is Sexy" (works for me!), Indiana Jones would win hands down.



But, add in Indy's machismo and general goofiness... Unbeatable!

The good news is that Harrison has already settled the debate for us. In a Barbara Walters interview he commented on how "thin" the Han Solo character was, but claimed he'd play Indy again "in a New York Minute".

Indy wins!

Shouldn't someone named Solo NOT have a huge Wookie sidekick? I took Indy, while he enlisted help, he did most of the fighting mano a mano.

This is like asking which one of my kids is my favorite!


Since I don't have any children, I'll vote Indiana Jones.

I went with Indy. While I love the character of Han Solo in the unaltered versions of Star Wars & Empire, you can't quite forget the "pussification" (to quote a previous dvdtalker) of Han in Return of the Jedi.

Indy stays true to his character the entire trilogy while Solo becomes a completely different person in Jedi.

Outfit
Jones sports a cool fedora and natty professorial suits on his offtime while Solo has his nancyboy white shirt & vest.

Edge: Jones

Vehicle
Jones rides in planes that crash, Nazi trucks, rustbucket steamships. Solo? The freakin Millennium Falcon.

Edge: Solo

Friends
Jones has dotty Marcus, loyal Sallah, his sarcastic father, and one of the most annoying characters ever, Short Round. Solo has Luke, Obi Wan, and everyone's favorite Wookie.

Edge: Solo

Chicks
Jones boinked Marion, who resembles a 12 year old boy; Willie Scott, and some bitchy Nazi broad. Solo gets three words: Slave Girl Leia.

Edge: Solo

Character
Jones wants to make sure all important relics go to museums. Solo is a space thug.

Edge: Jones

Catchphrases
Jones: "We walk from here.", "Trust me.", "I've got a lot of fond memories of that dog.", "Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?"
Solo: "Never tell me the odds.", "Laugh it up, furball."

Edge: Jones

Survival instinct
Solo shot first. Jones shot just about everybody else.

Edge: Jones

THE WINNER: Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr.
