I vote AVGN as well, especially since Rick doesn't seem to be able to boost his durability on the same level as his AP with prep, and his prep AP is a bit situational compared to AVGN just having the power advantage all around.
Kinda? He has attack reflection at least so that might negate the usefulness there. Plus if that's Rick's standard gear it probably isn't at AVGN's level of power without assuming Rick used prep time to upgrade it.
Not impossible, but it doesn't look good to me that it'd be enough for Rick to win.
Probably won't come up, Nerd has True Flight, and they both have such a massive range that the starting range and range for a majority of the fight will probably be out of Rick's melee
Rick can totally close the gap in a number of ways, like teleportation, but while under the kind of fire the AVGN is bringing, it's likely the fight will be over before Rick can consider that an option over all of his other gear, gadgets, and abilities. Especially since, like mentioned before, it doesn't seem like Rick's ability to prep his durability isn't as good as his AP potential, so it's likely Rick doesn't have a lot of time before AVGN's AP overtaxes him. An inconvinent win-con like a touch ability probably isn't a good move.
