He’s got a gun! Lunatic won’t hesitate to use his flame gun to take Maverick out real quick. Maverick is a top notch pilot and definitely knows how to manuever well in the air but ultimately that’s not going to be enough here. There’s not a whole lot that you can do against a super villain without powers of your own. Additionally, Lunatic was casually holding his own against multiple fighters with super abilities. Maverick isn’t in the same ballpark. Lunatic wins.
