Leonardo: Painted the Mona Lisa
Michelangelo: Painted the Sistine Chapel, sculpted the David, sculpted the Dying Slave and the Bound Slave, sculpted the Pietà

I think there's a clear winner here.

If we are talking about art, the better ninja turtle, or who has the more fabulous name, then Michelangelo. If we are talking about who has made the greater impact on history through their contributions to multiple disciplines, then Leonardo. Both were masters ahead of their time.

IDK art well enough, but I like the old bearded dude with the flying machine.

Wait a minute Jacqueline! Leonardo not only painted the Mona Lisa he knows science (mostly anatomy),engineering and architecture.
And Michelangelo not only painted the Sistine and sculpted the statue of David he knows poetry and yes he knows architecture as well.

What can I say? It's going to be one pasta fight tonight for these two artists of the Renaissance ages.

So... while we're looking over which of the two is 'more', let's not forget that history has already chosen the victor.

In 1504, the Florentine government formally set up a competition. Both masters were to paint great battles at the Palazzo Vecchio. On one side, Michaelangelo's Battle of Cascina, on the other, Leonardo's Battle of Anghiari. Both paintings were removed or painted over since (a shame, really, imagine what a sight it must have been to have both frescoes in one room).

Two years later, by 1506, the competition ended and the 'ultimate genius' was confidently chosen by the city of Florence.

The victor's prize was to decorate Rome itself. To stand before God and craft the very essence of the Vatican, shaping the future of art.

The loser resentfully left Italy, crossing the Alps. He took his most famous painting with him, where it now rests in La Louvre.

    Playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses and one character told another, "Recall that impatience begets error." A good counterpoint to "hesitation breeds regret"?))

    I saw this story about severely underpaid animators yesterday and it makes me very sad: https://twitter.com/NegiKitsu/status/1175197791649509376 Someone in the replies cast doubt on it actually being Carmen, but I'm not prepared to dismiss it.

    I hear you. I've been a fan for a LONG time. Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? was the first video game I remember playing. The reboot reignited my love for Carmen and ultimately led me here, as I'm sure it did with others around the same time, but my favorite thing about this site other than the people is that it's NOT about the reboot. I enjoy the new show for the sake of entertainment and nostalgia, but it's not the best thing to ever come out of the franchise. Far from it. I'm glad that the Carmen fans, new and old, are coming out and coming together.))

    Once the dust from the reboot has settled, I hope we are all still here, tarrying on in our adventures born of the fandom and grown and refined by our imaginations. I hope the new fans that come from the reboot - particularly the ones that find their way here - will remember where the fandom came from and celebrate la notre dame rouge as she deserves to be celebrated. Thank you for coming to my TED talk. Carry on.))

    I agree with you on all counts, @Claire Yeon, and would add that I hope new fans won't just remember where she came from but seek it out. Unfortunately, I don't hold out much/any hope for either.
