What a battle that would be!

Please vote in the polls and take the quiz below!

Did you ever wonder what would happen if the good guys from Marvel and D.C. went toe to toe?

Well, I have. I asked this question to friends and family members who love comic book characters. It is always a lively discussion! Though most seem to think that D.C. would win because of Superman,I have a different prediction. Though I believe that Superman, Wonder Woman, and The Green Lantern make D.C. hard to beat, I still favor the Marvel Comic Super Hereos. I will build the case for both, reviewing their strengths and weaknesses and then, I ask you to tell me what you think in the comment section below. This should be a fun debate!



The Avengers- A great movie!

How could the D.C. hereos win?

First of all, there is a huge and unstoppable force to rekon with on the Marvel side... The Hulk! If they did not take him out early in the battle, that would cost the D.C. side many of their members. He can stand toe to toe with any of them, even Superman. The Hulk could kill all of them, except for Superman and maybe the Flash. Superman could also get into a stalemate with Thor. If the hammer is destroyed, Superman wins. If not, That battle rages on for quite some time. So, to win, D.C. must deal with Dr. Banner, in my opinion. Otherwise, while the Hulk and Thor gang up on Superman, then the The Fantantic 4, Iron Man, and the Xmen wipe out the Justice League and the rest. Spidermen, The Submariner, and quite a few of the others have to be wiped out by Wonder Woman and Superman. Yes, Dr. Manhattan is a force as well that can wipe out some of the Marvel characters. But how great would it be to see Hulk in a punching match with Superman? I would also love to see Thor use his hammer against The Man of Steel, or The Green Lantern.

How Marvel could win

Remember that Superman is the ace for D.C. and the most powerful. If his fellow alien Thor, or fellow geniuses Tony Stark, Professor X, or Dr. Banner get their hands on kryptonite, the battle quickly turns in their favor. They could also make another Bizaro to keep the Man of Steel busy. I used to think that Bizaro came from an alternate universe, or from Kryton. But, he was actually a duplicate of Superboy. A scientist on Earth accidently created him. Marvel has so many power houses that if Superman is not there to defeat them, who will? The Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Manhattan, would handle some of the Marvel heroes, and escape the rest for a while. However, I think the defeat of Superman tips the scale for good. Hawkman, Batman (and friends), and Aquaman would not last long. The Flash and a few others last quite a while, but can they kill off anyone?

Maybe next, we can debate how either one would stack up against the Dark Horse tough guys! I would love to see some of them meet five finger Sally and Hellboy!

A dark alley and 2 bad dudes!

Now its your turn!

Tell me who think wins, what the best battles would be, and who your favorite super heroes are! And let's be grateful that Planet Earth never has to find out who wins and who loses!

Nice hub, Mike!

I always thought Plastic Man in the DC universe was cool. But then again, I liked Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four too. You're completely forgetting about some of the more powerful folk on the Marvel side, though. Vision and Scarlet Witch can pack quite the wallop when provoked. Superman's invincibility is significantly limited with Kryptonite in the picture and just as Iron Man is useless without the suit, so too is Bruce Wayne even with his. They are both wealthy socialites who use gadgetry in their battles. The truer superheroes like Hulk and Spiderman have their powers ingrained, and then, of course, you have the X-Men mutant corps. Do really think many of the DC heroes could hold off lightning strikes from Storm or laser blasts from Cyclops? I give game set match to the Marvel roster.

Thanks Bernie! That was my whole point. I think Marvel wins because, if the geniuses and the aliens would be able to find Kryptonite, D.C. would not be able to handle the Xman, Avengers, or Fantastic 4 let alone those you mentioned. Let's face it, the Submariner kicks Aquaman's butt, and the list goes on. Even if Superman stays at full power, Thor and The Hulk aren't afraid to throw down with anyone.

And let's face it...the Marvel heroes even look good in yellow spandex. The DC heroes? Well, let's think about this for a minute. Didn't they put nipples on the bat suit in the fourth movie? At least the Christian Bale movies were cool. But the Marvel movies all rock!

Okay, Taran, but how do they deal with Wolverine and his mutant healing abilities? Or Vision's ability to become incorporeal? Or Scarlet Witch's hexes that can wreak havok with the abilities of other heroes? I could go on and on. DC may have come first, but Marvel improved on the model. And Superman is useless around Kryptonite as was previously mentioned.

Wow! This is a cool debate! I feel bad choosing a side but, Marvel has plenty of scientists/geniuses. If they ever found Kryptonite, how does D.C. win? Besides, you really think that Superman wipes out the hulk and Thor right of the bat? Then, as Bernie said, you have a lot of powerful mutants. Don't forget that Rouge can steal powers as well as drain life out of other heroes.

Good one, Mike! I forget about young skunk head.

You know, too, for powerhouses, let's not forget about or rule out the Guardians of the Galaxy and their brick wall Charlie X. Pound for pound, he could hold off 4-eyes Kent until the Kryptonite arrived and then it would be all over.

You mentioned the Watchmen in your article, Mike, but aren't they technically in an alternate DC universe? I don't ever recall them interacting with the regular DC cast.

Awesome hub, this is something all of us comic readers think about once in a while. If you want to beat hulk no problem then sick Raven from Teen Titans on him, she would take away his anger and leave him as puny Banner.

Thanks Bernie and Mtn dew! Who are some of your favorites?

mtndewlover 3 years ago

From marvel I would say; Thor, Hulk, Wolverine, Shadowcat and Spider-man just to name a few, I have many favorites from marvel.

From DC I would say; Superman, Supergirl, Raven, Wonder Girl and Red Robin just to name a few, To be honest I am only now starting to really get into the DC universe and Wonder Girl and Red Robin are kinda new additions.

The Hulk and Spiderman were 2 of my favorites too!

MikeSyrSutton 3 years ago from An uncharted galaxy Author

Bernie,

I didn't answer your question. The Watchmen are, but this is a what if. In other words they all come together in this fantasy to do battle...just for those of us who hub!

Good points, Taran, but your discounting some of the X-Men, too, who could level the playing field. As Mike pointed out, there's Rogue who can take away the powers of the beings she touches. And Storm can jam a lightning bolt up a butt or two. And don't forget Cyclops and those laser eyes of his. And look out everyone if the Guardians of the Galaxy join the fray. And Scarlet Witch just sends everything into chaos with her powers. And I don't know ANY mortal hero who'd want to take on Johnny Blaze when he adopts the guise of Zarathos, the Ghost Rider.

Ghost Rider the Hulk and Thor don't go down anywhere near the beginning in my opinion. Some of the mutants last until the end too. But, I agree that Capt. Marvel and Superman don't go down easy either!

You really want to throw some monkey wrenches into the works, add Marvel's Captain Marvel, the rest of the Asgardians (including Odin - wouldn't THAT pack a wallop), the Silver Surfer and the Fantastic Four. Now that would be interesting - I wonder if Supes could break out of Invisible Girl's forcefield. Of course, Mr. Fantastic vs Plastic Man just becomes one massive tangled mess.


MikeSyrSutton profile image

MikeSyrSutton 3 years ago from An uncharted galaxy Author

The Surfer isn't easy to kill. I agree.

MikeSyrSutton 3 years ago from An uncharted galaxy Author

Very nice! There are some stand offs too. Who wins when Plactic Man meets Fantastic? Apache Chief meets Giant Man? Silver Sufer meets Ice Man?

I can say that The Submariner kicks Aquaman's butt.

So I jump in here with two feet and say it is a battle I'd love to see but hate to see a loser. Sure there's debate about Marvel over DC but darn they both have good heroes going for them. Why would we ever want to see them fight each other? I know, I'm a girl ;)

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Thanks Till,

Its just fun to wonder what if.

Very true T! Who wins if Hawkeye and The Green Arrow face off?

Bernie, any thoughts?


BernietheMovieGuy profile image

BernietheMovieGuy 3 years ago from Syracuse, NY

That's an interesting question, Mike. Both are ace shots, so if it were a true battle to the death, both should die in the first volley. I give Hawkeye the edge, though. As a former villain, he would probably cheat and use an explosive arrow to cause as much collateral damage as possible, probably removing other DC heroes in the process.


MikeSyrSutton profile image

MikeSyrSutton 3 years ago from An uncharted galaxy Author

Valid point. Though I like the Green Arrow much more, I don't see him winning. Also, mortals like Batman, Robin, etc. could fall to "Agent Hawk" as well.

Very good analysis T! I am having a blast with this btw!


MikeSyrSutton profile image

MikeSyrSutton 2 years ago from An uncharted galaxy Author

So who wins in these match ups?

Thor vs The Green Lantern

Batman vs Night Owl

The Submariner vs Hawkman

Superman vs Manhattan

Any of the Female mutants vs Wonder Woman

Let me know what you think!
