Default Elite V.S space marine

Ok, this is pretty random so i figured i should put it here: a elite with a energy sword plasma rifle (the kind from Halo) and a cloak against a marine with a bolt-gun and his armor.

My friend and I got into a scuffle over this. Yes, I know. I am a nerd.

Whoever wins, our collective IQ loses.

I say the Space Marine as Master Chump is just that. A chump. A Space Marine is a veteran of many years service, and the bolter will rip the leet monkey apart.

It depends on the mode of comparison:
1) Do you comapare a Marine of the 41st millenia to the SPARTAN or Elite of the 3rd(?) millenia?
2) Or the cybernetically/genetically enhanced super-warrior of their time period of their own merits?

It makes a big difference - if you are comparing them as two super soldiers, the match would be very even but probably favour the Elite, his cloaking device and plasma sword giving him a serious technological edge. If you compared them on thier own terms, though... the Marine would be able to calmly remove his armour and then cause the Elites 3 jaws to become 4 with his bare hands.

Who cares about the cloaking device. Marines have all types of different vision modes in their helmets. A few good bolter shots will turn that elite into a steaming pile of blue goo.

Point. I voted for the marine. Not that I like them.
