Okay, here's a fun question that a coworker and I had a few years ago. Who could win in a fight if in theory these characters existed in the same universe? A Jedi Knight from Star Wars or Superman? Who do you pick would win in a fight and why?
I don't think anyone who wears their underpants on the outside would win such a fight.
Depends on which planet they are fighting on. Wasn't Superman's strength due to our yellow sun?
Yes, manly, you are correct, about the yellow sun. Kryptonians, whose native star Rao had been red, only possess superpowers under the light of a yellow sun. However, the source of Superman's powers originally came from his Kryptonian heritage, which made him more evolved than humans.
superman in about 5 seconds. he would bewilder the jedi night with his quickness and mental toughness plus he would laugh at the light saber as it bounces off him.
Definitely the Jedi. All he has to do is wait for Superman to enter the phone booth to change clothes and mind-lift it off of him. Superman will then collapse from embarrassment and confusion as he tries to pull on his outside underpants while outside instead of inside.
Gotta go with Superman for his natural powers and abilities.
I think it would be a no brainer here, as I think Superman would clearly have the advantage here. Plus if we're going off the Christopher Reeves' version, then Superman can breath in space, so if he was really a jerk, he could just throw a bunch of freaking meteors at whatever planet the Jedi inhabit and kill them.
Is there cryptonite in a light saber? No one has ever said what they're made of. That would make a difference.
Yeah, but you have to be up close to use it. Whereas Superman, his powers allow him to not only be affective up close, but he can attack easily from a distance whether it be laser eyes or cold breath, he can be lethal either way.
Jedi can deflect those lasers, can't they? And they might be able to evade his cold breath by jumping around or something.
Yeah, with a Kryptonite in a light saber, the Jedi might have a chance.
You forget the force is with the Jedi. Mr. popo is right. Even if they weren't agile enough to evade the lasers or breath; they could probably bend the incoming attack with the wave of a hand, or hover a boulder over to block it; if the force was with them.
Yes, but superman can move faster than the speed of light; which in theory allows him to travel through time ala the flash. he can just as easily stop the jedi from ever finishing their training, and they'd be no more.
I don't know. I saw him turn time back a little while. Not years, but I don't read the comic books..I'll have to take your word on this power. I guess Superman wins.
Well in that case, the Jedi that existed prior to Superman would foresee a "disturbance in the Force" and kill him before he ever had a chance to develop his powers. Or, befriend him and train the greatest, most powerful Jedi ever to have lived.
Besides, time travel? There are way too many problems with that! Just by him going back in time Superman would have altered the future, which could involve a number of scenarios like the Jedi coming to stop him or Clark Kent not becoming Superman...
In any case, let's limit the fight without time travel to make it more plausible (as if this fight totally makes sense)
The mind reels at that prospect....
Yeah, that's true. Plus, as fast as superman would be moving, it would be hard for him to decipher which exact time period he'd finally end up in, as he could accidentally go too far if he's not careful.
Edit: I'd have to agree with saberblade here on the concept of a jedi superman. that would be very interesting to see, as he'd probably be damn near impossible to stop if he had the combined powers of his own and jedi abilities. not that he's not already unstoppable, but even more so with jedi capabilities.
Superman picks out the Jedi on the ground from Earth orbit with his telescopic vision.
He locks in and dives at him at,oh say Mach 5.
Before the Jedi can say "I sense a disturbance in the force" Supes rams through him at roughly 3,840 mph.
But, would Superman do that? That's like hitting below the belt.
Yeah see, youre right.
I always said that if Supes wasn't the Boy Scout that he is,he would be pretty darn close to unstoppable.
But he has those morals and things.
Now if Batman were Kryptonian....
The Jedi could mind-trick Superman into pulling his own head off.
Jedi 1, Superman 0
Yes, but those Jedi mind tricks only work on the simple minded, and Superman has an intellect that surpasses most humans.
A genius Jedi can handle it. Not to mention, he could get a bunch of his friends to help, because unlike Superman, Jedi are not one-man shows. So, they could gang-mind-F him, bring in a few geniuses. Genusi? Uhh... clearly I won't be invited, but nonetheless, still...
Jedi 1, Superman 0
Oh i see, so that's how it is, huh? I'll admit when I started this forum, I was thinking about what could happen if it was more of a one on one match. However since you're bringing in the possibility of other Jedis joining in to help out, then it would stand to reason that Superman could still call on his friends too. After all, you have to remember he is one of the founding leaders of the Justice League that has powerful members like Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Hawk Girl, Batman, Robin, Shazam, Supergirl, and many others.
edit: Plus if green lantern gets involved, he can easily call in the entire green lantern corpse to help out the justice league as well. thus outnumbering the jedi
Forget about the JLA!
He can just call Supergirl, Power Girl, Superboy (Conner), Krypto the Superdog, Comet, the Superhorse, Streaky the Supercat, Beppo the Supermonkey and....ummmmm...wait a minute.
Maybe you better call the JLA...LOL
Yeah that's right!
A super monkey and a super horse, both with capes!
Suck on that Jedi!
Yeah, i hear ya saberblade. Although I think the combination of Power Girl, Supergirl, Superboy and Superman would be very tough to handle for the Jedi knights.
Lol. I never even knew about a super monkey and a super horse. This fight is even more lop-sided now!
Superman, if the fight is here on earth, I think his powers would be limited out in space, so if the fight were in space that might be a whole other ball of wax.
Then the Jedis might have an advantage.
Hi steven its good just hanging out for a few minutes. lol How are you?
Oh I'm doing great thanks. Just been kind of preoccupied with a few things today. Getting ready for classes later this week, while checking up on some people. Nothing too exciting trust me. lol. So what have you been up to lately?
not much crawling around this gawdawful country. lol
tims catching a few zzzz's so thought I'd check up on hubpages. And spreading a few comments around. Trying to avoid confrontation, with certain hubbers. lol
Certain hubbers? Aw I'm sure nobody around here has anything against ya. Besides, they'd have to be borderline insane to have a problem with a sweet gal like yourself.
Superman is weak to "magic", by which I mean he takes the same amount of damage from magical spells and items as a normal person would. If Jedi's powers are actually considered magic instead of weird biology, they might have a small edge on him. The fact that lightsabers can cut through most organic substances also helps them.
Of course, they'd have to hit him, which is... hard.
Oh yeah. I forgot about that silly weakness that superman has. You do have a point about that, as I didn't even think of that. that could spell problems if that was the case.
The Force isn't magic, it's an energy field created by all living things, that surrounds and penetrates living beings and binds the galaxy together.
The Force is channeled by microscopic bacteria in the bloodstream, midichlorians, so it's scientific.
(Another reason the last three Star Wars sucked. Thanks George!)
And yes lightsabers can cut through most organic substances, but so can lasers and The Man of Steel sheds them like a duck sheds water.
He could grab the blade of the lightsaber and beat the Jedi to death with the handle.
BTW, what wiped almost all the Jedi?
Order 66...Clone Troopers with blasters?
Thugs with ray guns?
Yeah, you do have a point there. I forgot how George Lucas turned the Force into something that was more scientific based in the prequels. Did you hear about the movies being rerelaesed in 3-d coming out soon?
Yeah, I have mixed feelings.
It seems like every time he does something he screws the storyline up more and more.
But being in 3-D cant hurt it.
Or can it.....?
idk, i just know that there's rumors that he's thinking about adding extra scenes again for the 3-d releases, and this is part of his plan to rerelease the dvds in 3-d to make even more money. i guess lucas has turned over to the dark side of cinema these days.
Hmm, this is a tough one.
First off I could see this fight happening if they all existed in the same world. Superman would probably disagree with the Jedi's methods and the Jedi's might not understand this and decide that Superman is a 'Force' that needs to be stopped. The probably is, Superman is an unstoppable force.
1. Supes invulnerability would help him out as far as hand to hand combat goes but then I have to wonder if the light saber harnesses enough power to pierce his skin. I don't think so since if I am correct the light saber it self is not magical, which is something Superman always has a problem with.
2. Supes is too fast for any of them. It doesn't matter if they sense him coming, if they can not move fast enough to do anything.
3. Supes could use his heat vision, his strength, or his cold breath to kill the Jedi Knight if it came down to it but, the question is would he. Most likely this scenario would end up being all of the Jedi's against Supe (that's the only way they would have a chance). Supes would not kill any of them even if he had the chance. Most likely at the end of this story Supes would find some way to send them to the phantom zone or something.
My last point makes me wonder, did Superman kill Zod and the other two Kryptonians at the end of Superman II?
In the comics Superman had the Phantom Zone projector that he could have used to send the criminals back to the Phantom Zone.
But he didn't in the movie.
So I have to wonder too.
But he did remove their powers with that red light, so a normal prison could have held them.
You know, out of all the people that posted here, I think you probably gave the best response thus far, as I tend to agree with many of your assessments.
I'm still laughing about the super monkey and super horse. The very appearance of Super Monkey and Super Horse would destroy all Jedi instantly, their minds would explode from ridiculousness of proptions that huge and they would all die.
Let's not forget Streaky the Supercat.
My God...what were those writers smoking back then?
Not to mention Beppo's nickname was...get ready..."The Monk of Might".
It musta been high quality stuff!
Just a thought here, but the Jedi very deliberate and calculating. It would be naive to assume that they would not know that Kriptonite is Superman's weakness.
So with that in mind would they not create a light saber with a Kriptonite chrystal?
Well as someone else said earlier, we really don't know what material the light saber is already made of, as one person suggested on here that the light sabers could already possess elements of kryptonite in it. If that's the case, then that could be a huge advantage for the jedi if they can manage to keep the fight a close one rather than fighting superman from a distance.
Whoa!! Never thought of that! Kryptonite light saber, dagger, or sword could really hurt Supes. This is getting interesting.
They could use force powers as well to surround themselves with shards of Kriptonite.

So, yeah, who would win that one? Superman or Jesus.

With the advent of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, who would win in a fight? Batman or Superman? I mean if the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight were to face off (and they have in the past) who do you think would come out on top and why?

Who would win a fight between Superman and Batman?At the end of the day this fight would pit brains against brawn. While Superman is by no means an idiot he does often rely on his strength and other abilities to get him out of trouble. On the other hand Batman has no superpowers at all,...

Okay, who'd win in a fight? No special rules, as each of these characters are free to fight and strategize against each other however the hell they want. Who'd win in a fight? Please be elaborate as possible when telling us who you think would win.
