"Strike Back": Michael Stonebridge VS. Damien Scott?


With Strike Back returning for Season 3* next week (August 9), I think we should recap Section 20's most valuable soldiers - Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott.

Michael and Damien are the two ground operatives in the British covert military agency, called Section 20. Although their personalities are complete opposites, the chemistry between Stonebridge and Scott makes a hell of a good team of them. Who is your favorite soldier?
*Strike Back Season 1 starred Richard Armitage, who left the series after he was cast in The Hobbit franchise. The TV drama returned with Philip Winchester (Stonebridge) and Sullivan Stapleton (Scott) as the new lead actors. Richard's departure affected the way Cinemax ranked the series. Strike Back: Project Dawn is actually Season 2 of the franchise, if you want to be technical about it, but the cable network listed it as Season 1.

How do you rate it?

Michael Stonebridge

American actor Philip Winchester portrays British SBS soldier Michael Stonebridge. His character is a typical scoutboy who executes orders without asking any questions. Michael has an unparalleled discipline and leadership skills. Sometimes, he may come in on the action late, but he would make the difference that saves the day. However, his commitment to the military often lead to complications in his private life.

Michael is far from a saint. Although he is married with a child on the way (later on in the series), he has an affair with colleague Kate Marshall.

Damien Scott

Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton portrays American soldier Damien Scott. His character was a member of the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (SFOD-D) or "Delta Force" before the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Damien met his partner Stonebridge in Malaysia who had been sent by Section 20 to convince Scott to come and help find a Pakistani terrorist.

Unlike Stonebridge, Scott is irresponsible, disobedient and impulsive. But that doesn't make him any less of a soldier. In fact, Damien's unquestionable courage has led him to follow his instincts, which often results in saved lives and accomplished missions. He usually jumps first and takes the heat.

Damien's only soft spot is women. He is an unmatched ladies man.
