Sadie beats out Annabeth any day!
On the topic though, I think team Kane would win. Sadie, in all reality could probably(with some effort) beat them both single-handedly. Annabeth's cleverness only majorly effects battles with more-dim witted people like titans, giants,monsters etc. Also on people who are blinded with malice like Circe or even Arachne. Against a human opponent, she could hold her own. That's if it was someone power-oriented like Jason or Percy. She would be facing an opponent with her(or close to her) level of intelligence (Sadie), whom also has power to match. I just couldn't see Annabeth Winning. And even weakened by her prior battle I'm sure Sadie could take Magnus. Yes, he has his sword...but if Sadie just shouts a powerful spell-glyph and as Magnus would be unconscious, His sword would also be useless, as it is only as strong as Magnus is, or Magnus would die if the sword kept fighting. Remember though, we haven't factored Carter in so add him and team Kane kind of destroys them.
I'd call it a tie, honestly. Annabeth is really intelligent and always has an amazing plan, while Magnus has a practically invincible sword. The Kanes have magic and host-gods, but using their powers tires them. However, the magic that they do use could be enough to overpower Annabeth and Magnus.
Team Kane for sure. Annabeth is at a disadvantage here, even though she is the smartest person in the room she is not invulnerable to magic. Her plan would most likely revolve around Magnus since the best counter attack to magic is magic itself. I see one of the Kane's making short work of Annabeth and together overwhelming Magnus. Plus as stated already in the post the chemistry for the Kane's are much better then the Chase team so they would more efficiently and more effectively with less margin of error.
no one is doubting Annabeth and Magnus achievements.
its just that this is a fight between two teams and it comes down to what you have at your disposal. And as stated already best counter to magic is magic. Annabeth is at a disadvantage even if she is definitely the smartest in the room she will rely heavily on Magnus which is puts their team at a disadvantage.
