Judge Dredd Vs. RoboCop?


The new RoboCop costume design raised questions about the originality of the look. People seem to agree that the new black suit is nothing but a copycat of those, featured in recent franchises. Technical modifications left aside, why did they have to paint it black, at all?

Anyway, today's showdown faces the new RoboCop against one of his colleagues (and creativity inspirations): Judge Dredd. Vote for your favorite character (or suit) in the poll below.

Judge Dredd
Judge Dredd and RoboCop have many similarities in common. They barely talk, have no sense of humor, and don kickass costumes. But the one similarity that made them favorites among people is their tenacity in pursuing criminals.

For Judge Dredd, law is everything. However, he is not your average police officer. Dredd carries out both arrests and verdicts; thus, making lawyers obsolete.

Short biography: Judge Dredd may be more a cop than a soldier yet due to the nature of Earth and Mega City One in his time, he is the frontline assault on any opposition the city faces. He spends every waking moment of his life on the streets. He has no secret identity, no time off, and he's never seen without his signature helmet.
After a day and night of fighting crime, Dredd returns to the Grand Hall of Justice for 10 minutes in the sleep machine. Then he's back on the job, hammering in just how relentless crime is in this dystopian future. One thing that separates Dredd from other street level crime fighters is that there is no crime he will ignore.
While he deals with all the crazy menaces that threaten the city and its citizens, he is also a threat to the citizens if they commit even the most minor of crimes. The future is harsh, and the law is the law. Dredd does question his role in this harsh regime from time to time, be it sympathizing with mutants or citizen's cries for freedom, but he is literally a product of the times and was created to bring justice and that is what he does.

RoboCop
Unlike Dredd, RoboCop is a cyborg. He was once a regular police officer and then he was killed. Just like tends to happen in movies, big cities always have at least one evil corporation that tries to restructure the town, using immoral methods. In the RoboCop universe, this city is Detroit and the company is called Omni Consumer Products.

When officer Alex Murphy is killed, OCP takes his body and turns it into a machine: RoboCop.
