Do you think the Hero of Bowerstone is more powerful in the individual Disciplines than the 3 Heroes themselves?

Would Sparrow beat any of the 3 Heroes in their own Discipline?

Hi there! First post here, so forgive me if something is wrong or I put this in the wrong place...

Anyway, I was having a discussion with someone about whether Sparrow, in a one-on-one match, could beat each Hero at their own game. For example: Putting no points into Strength or Skill at all and maxing only Will and fighting Garth in a magic duel, only putting points into Strength and fighting Hammer, only into Skill and fighting Reaver, you get the idea.

Personally I believe each Hero to be more skilled in their individual Discipline than Sparrow can get in the game, but Sparrow's versatility and proficiency in all 3 of these is what makes them the most powerful Hero of the 3 and would be how Sparrow would definitely win against any of them, rather than by being at least an equal to each Hero in Strength, Skill and Will. At least in Fable II. I feel like each Hero had establishing moments that said 'they're the best at what they do, but they can't do everything that you can.'

Also, This isn't counting anything after the game where Sparrow could, possibly, with time, achieve the same level of power as each Hero themselves. Or do you think Sparrow already has reached Reaver, Garth and Hammer's level in Fable II?

Personally, I think Hammer and Reaver are quite weak as heroes go - plus Reaver would just cheat at whatever it is anyway. Garth is the only serious contender to go up against because he seems more focussed, disciplined and in control. The other two have hang-ups and personal issues from here to Aurora.

I honestly don't know what I'd choose here though. Sparrow, with the combined abilities, is a fearful opponent...but if it was just one skill against the respective Hero specialising in it? Then I'd say Garth would be the only worry. Hammer is too slow and angsty.

Reaver would have already shot Sparrow waaaaay before any official fight started.

I think the whole point is that the William Black bloodline is superior to everything so Sparrow would whoop all dem butts.

Interesting question, I think yeah sparrow could best them all one-on-one if only disciplined to there respective ability.. but thats also not what they are about, they can wield all abilities and act as a balancing force for the three hero's so I reckon against all three would be a loss, sure might be able to take down one but whilst doing so is likely going to see a bullet / hammer / lightening bolt to face.. unless they spam slow time lol
