So in light of the Avenger versus X-Men concept that Marvel Comics will be entertaining us in the next few months, I've decided to pit individual characters of both teams against one another. Instead of always letting Marvel decide for us, let's have us comic fans decide for a change, shall we? Besides, it's fun!
In this awesome, heavy-weight battle of comic titans, we have Wolverine versus Captain America. Two extremely popular Marvel characters who fans love to see go at it. I'll be listing both Captain America's powers and Wolverine's powers and attributes, so you can determine and then vote for who you think will be the victor in this amazing showdown.
Let's get it on! Captain America versus Wolverine!
In the blue corner, we have the most respected member of The Avengers team, who has often lead the world's mightiest superheroes into countless battles against a wide array of alien beings, cosmic entities, and super powered villains. Weighing in at 240 lbs, this World War II veteran stands at 6 feet and 2 inches and is the symbolic pride of freedom and the United States...the one, the only...Captain America!
Strength: He can bench press 1200 lbs.
Abilities/Powers: Due to the Super-Soldier serum and the Vita Ray treatment, Captain America's powers includes endurance, speed, agility, strength, and reflexes that are at the peak of natural human potential.He can run a mile in approximately 73 seconds, which is about 49 to 50 miles per hour.
Cap's immune system repels airborne impurities and terrestrial diseases, and he heals faster than the average person. He cannot be intoxicated by drugs nor alcohol.
He is trained in various forms of Martial Arts, and mixes a combination of western boxing, judo, kick boxing, and gymnastics into his own unique and unorthodox fighting style. He is regarded as one of the best hand-to-hand combatants in the world.
Experience: Due to his battle experiences and training in World War II, Captain America is an expert combat tactician and field commander. He has led a variety of teams to countless victories. His military knowledge and intelligence makes him a formidable foe even without his super abilities.
Weapons: Captain America's shield is made out of an experimental alloy called vibranium and is nearly indestructible. Due to his training, Cap often uses his shield as an offensive throwing weapon that he can ricochet so it returns to him. Cap also uses his shield as a defensive weapon, and it has the ability to absorb all vibrations in the vicinity as well as kinetic energy directed at it. The more energy vibranium absorbs the tougher it becomes.
In the red corner, we have the challenger! Weighing in at 300 lbs and standing at 5 feet 3 inches, he is a well known member of the mutant team the X-Men, and has an animalistic rage unsurpassed by anyone.
A veteran of World I and II as a soldier of fortune, he was also a member of the black ops unit Team X before serving as an intelligence operative for the Canadian government. He is the feisty, dangerous and deadly pride of Canada and mutants all around the world. He's the best at what he does...the slash 'em up...berserker rage, mutie...Wolverine!
Strength: Because of his regenerative powers, which enables Wolverine to push his bones and muscles beyond normal human capability, and the demand his muscles endure to support over a hundred pounds of adamantium, Wolverine does has super human strength despite his small stature.
Powers/Abilities: Wolverine's mutant power is an extraordinary healing factor and accelerated regenerative process that can virtually regenerate destroyed and damaged tissue rapidly. His mutation also has heightened his senses of smell, sight, and hearing as well as agility, reflexes, endurance and an incredible stamina. Because he can push his body past normal human capabilities without injury, Wolverine can exert himself with strenuous physical activity non-stop for numerous hours
Because his healing factor slows down his aging, Wolverine was born in the 19th century but still has the looks and physical attributes of a man in his prime. Due to his age and the ability to live longer than most humans, Wolverine is trained in martial arts, and is experienced in virtually every fighting style there is on planet.
Experience: Wolverine is military trained and served in both World War I and II as a soldier of fortune. He served with the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion and was also part of the Team X Canadian black ops unit.
Weapons: Part of his natural mutation, Wolverine has two sets of three, retractable claws that are housed within each of his forearms and released through the top of his hands. Wolverine's claws are laced with adamantium, a metal alloy that is indestructible. His claws extend a foot from his hands and can cut through most metals, wood, and some stone.
Along with his claws, Wolverine's entire skeleton is laced with adamantium. His bones are virtually indestructible, and coupled with his fast regenerative power and animal-like reflexes and ability, Wolverine is an extremely formidable opponent who often has fits of "beserker rages" that brings him to a state of animalistic fury.
