The greatest fight of them all is about to begin! The four biggest Marvel and DC characters are meeting in a field of battle, and only one company will come out the victor! But which one will it be?
Let’s take a look at each fighter, and how well they stack up against one another. First up is DC.
The original hero is DC’s ringer, and the deciding force in any battle. Super speed, super strength, flight, invincibility . . . you name it, Superman has it. He has all the strengths, and only one weakness, which will nonetheless be important in this battle.
The world’s greatest detective is the only member on this list without super-human abilities, but he has plenty to make up for it, including incredible martial arts abilities, high-tech gadgets, and information about each combatant.
A female equivalent to Superman, Wonder Woman has it all: strength, speed, flight, stamina, even some stranger abilities such as empathy, animal communication, and dimensional teleportation. Her threshold for pain isn’t as much as Superman’s but still easily super-human.
A hero with a unique ability, Green Lantern has the power to create anything he wills with his ring, including weapons, defenses, and any other utilities. He also has the power to fly, is a powerful boxer, and possesses an indomitable will.
Now on to Marvel.
New York’s friendly neighborhood web crawler, Spider-Man has powers of the common house spider proportional to his size, including great strength, speed, agility, and more. He also has a “spider-sense” used to detect incoming dangers, and can shoot sticky webs from his wrists.
Born with a regenerative healing factor and born claws on both hands, Wolverine was given an adamantium skeleton during a secret government project. These three things combine to make him a strong, almost unkillable weapon.
Tony’s powers come purely from his suit of armor, which grants him a number of abilities: strength, speed, flight, energy shields, laser beams, and a number of other offensive weapons such as rockets and more. His great intellect, powered by the node in his chest, and fast funds are hidden weapons that will be critical in this fight.
Perhaps the strongest of all Marvel heroes, Thor’s list of feats is dense. His superhuman strength is enough to tip the scales, but he possesses much more, including invulnerability to energy blasts, weighted impacts, and other forces, extreme speed, and more. Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer, is his greatest advantage, giving his attacks even more power, as well as innumerable other advantages.
The battle lines have been drawn, and we’re ready to begin! Thor lines up against Superman, Wolverine pairs off against Wonder Woman, Iron Man and Batman are trying to decide who’s richer, and Spider-Man and Green Lantern are already fighting somewhere in the city. Will the DC squad’s power advantage force the win, or will Marvel’s greater utility give them an edge?
In the battle between Thor and Superman, neither has the obvious advantage, as both are cosmically-strong heroes whose power rises with every issue. Both are nearly indestructible; it’s a battle of super-detrition. Wolverine’s fight against Wonder Woman, on the other, hand, would be faster. Wolverine’s claws could do damage to Wonder Woman unless she deflects them with her bracelets. Wonder Woman is much faster, but could be thrown off-balance by Wolverine’s fury.
Batman against Iron Man may be the only battle where the strength level factors heavily in Marvel’s direction. Batman is strong and well-prepared, but doesn’t have the power of Iron Man’s suit. Both men are highly intelligent and possess incredible tactical skill, and will surely have prepared for this battle. Spider-Man and Green Lantern are at odds with each other; one has agility and strength, the other has the ability to literally create anything, and flight. This battle will be a test of skill and adaptability at the speed of thought.
Could Iron Man have a shard of Kryptonite? Can Wolverine get past Wonder Woman’s defenses? Can Green Lantern squash spidey? Which of these two teams will come out victorious? Tell us what you think!
