Percy Jackson VS. Jason Grace
Debate Rounds (5)
Percy Jackson is a very talented swordsman with considerable physical strength and stamina. Percy also has a special power as the Son of Poseidon to control any water that is nearby as well as summon any nearby marine animals to help him. Meanwhile, Jason Grace is also a very talented swordsman with very above average physical fitness. As the Son of Jupiter, Jason can summon lightning and produce violent electrical shocks, as well as freely fly around by himself in a controlled manner.
In "The Mark of Athena", Percy and Jason fought for the first time and showed they have roughly equal levels of skill in physical combat, but they didn't use their demigod powers much at all. Therefore, the only way to figure out who is stronger is by using logic to extrapolate what a clash between their respective elements would look like
According to the laws of science, water conducts electricity. Thus, from a purely theoretical standpoint, Jason's lightning would travel straight through Percy's water attacks (which Jason could have dodged by flying) and shock Percy. If Jason were to do this repeatedly, Percy would no doubt die, leaving Jason to be the winner.
This is my reasoning for why I believe Jason Grace would win in a fight with Percy Jackson, but I look forward to hearing your reasoning for why you believe otherwise.
Sadly, I have to point out that Percy heals from making contact with water. Even if it was electrically charged, the least it would do is at the most shock him like rubbing his socks on the floor and touching a doorknob. Not to mention the fact that from previous books, we saw Percy being able to use his powers much longer then Jason can. I believe regardless, The electrically charged water wouldn't change the outcome.
I pass the stage to you Con.
The statement that Percy can use his powers longer than Jason can be said only because we have become much more familiar with Percy's combat than Jason's. After all, Jason has only been a main character in 3 books, whereas Percy has been the main character in 7. I'm sure that Jason has just as much endurance as Percy; it was stated that Jason took down Krios by himself along with all of Mt. Othrys.
Thank you for your arguments. I hope to hear from you soon.
Sadly, Percy controls water meaning he could stop the electrical water from reaching him. He could Then send it right back at Jason. Jason can't heal from electricity, I'm sure it would at least hurt him a bit. So his electrical water tactic fails. Percy also has more experience.
Your argument that "Percy has more experience" is also flawed. It was stated that Jason has been training in Camp Jupiter's Roman Legions since age 2, whereas Percy only started training at Camp Half Blood at age 12. That is a 10 year difference in combat experience. In addition, Jason stayed at Camp Jupiter year long, only leaving for quests, whereas Percy only came to Camp Half Blood during the Summers and during Winter Break.
Your turn again, Pro
