No Comparison?

A couple of years ago I wrote up the same character in all 4 editions of Dungeons & Dragons. I decided to recreate my experiment tonight starting with 1st edition, because I knew it was the most random, and ended up making a dwarf fighter. Each edition afterwards was simply an attempt to recreate the character from the previous edition, using the rules and character creation methods of the later edition. Here are the stats along with some notes I added for explanation for Mitch, the dwarven fighter.
