This was posted on a bulletin from Moonlight UK. I've also x-posted it on our Myspace Page.
This was posted a long time ago, but it's recently come back up so let's add it to the polls we all have to vote for Moonlight!
Go Mick! (he has a better sense of humour)
Angel Vs. Mick St.
Posted Nov 9th 2007 12:02PM by Isabelle Carreau
"When Moonlight first aired, TV fans couldn't help themselves but to compare the series with Angel. Both series have a good looking vampire as its lead and said main character is an investigator. At first glance, Moonlight's lead vampire, Mick St. John, may sound like an Angel clone.
Let's compare, shall we?
Both men wear dark clothes, including some sort of jacket. Angel opts for slightly loose shirts but that still highlight his muscles (for the ladies' pleasure). As for Mick, he keeps wearing muscle shirts (for the ladies' pleasure as well!). However, Mick's choice of shirts make it harder to take him seriously as a PI.
Angel is a great warrior. Not only is he a great combatant but most of the time he is fighting enemies unarmed. Mick is still a newbie in that area. Yes, he is able to kick some behinds but Beth has to save him most of the time! If Mick (in the shape he is right now) had to fight Angel, the latter would win hands down! Even Moonlight's Josef would win against Mick. Then again, if Mick fought Angel as he was a few decades after being turned, maybe the battle would last a little longer but I would still put my money on Angel.
Mick is not over the fact that his wife turned him on his wedding day. This prevents him from hooking up with anyone, including Beth. The same could almost be said for Angel who was turned by Darla way back when. However, the main difference is that Mick wasn't expecting at all to be turned and was not in the state of mind to become a vampire. When Angel was turned, he was looking for more excitement in his life, thus was more prone to accepting his new path.
Both are tormented by their vampire side. Angel is almost another person when in vampire mode (aka Angelus). Since Mick never fully embraced his vampire side, he is still pretty much himself when in vampire mode.
Both understand the danger they bring to the people surrounding them and try to keep boundaries with everyone.
Both are pro-human and don't want to feed on them. But if Angel didn't have his soul, he would probably be feeding on humans.
Both are intelligent, capable investigators and hot!
I surely forgot tons of pros and cons for both vampires. If so, post below to help us decide who is the best TV vampire between Angel and Mick St. John. Of course, since I know Angel best, I'm leaning towards him winning this battle. However, Mick is a promising character."
