Son Goku

Real Name: Kakarot

Place of Birth: Saiyan Planet

Gender: Male

Height: 5'8'’

Weight: 145 lbs.

Powers: Kame-Hame Wave, Super strength and speed, seemingly limitless energy, energy ball, instant teleportation, flight

Brief History: Son Goku is one of the few Saiyan who survived as their plant was destroyed by Freeza. Saiyans send babies to conquer various planets and Son Goku was lucky enough to be sent to earth before Freeza annihilated his entire race. Goku was found and adopted by Gohan. He was a very stubborn and rude baby at first until he accidentally fell and bumped his head. The incident totally changed Son Goku’s attitude and made him forget about his true mission. His great fighting skills were evident even when he was just a kid. He then took trained under Master Roshi together with his best friend Kuririn. His adventures never stopped from there. He eventually became one of the strongest being in the universe and the protector of Earth.

Strengths and Weaknesses:

Saiyans have a tail which is without a doubt their main weakness. Simply holding it will greatly weaken them. However, this tail also enables them to transform into a giant beast during full moon. Goku managed to overcome this weakness with the help of Master Roshi. He was able to cut Son Goku’s tail after he turned into a monster during a Martial Arts tournament. From that day onwards, Goku’s only weakness is food. He easily hungers and can’t fight well with an empty stomach. It may sound funny but probably the only way to beat the strongest being in the whole universe is to make him hungry. Son Goku’s strength on the other hand lies on his speed and almost limitless power. He also has a technique where all living creatures can lend him their power to create a huge ball of energy. This special technique was used in various occasions especially in beating his strongest enemies.

Real Name: Clark Kent, Kal-El

Place of Birth: Krypton

Gender: Male

Height: 6’3’’

Weight: 235 lbs.

Powers: Super speed and strength, can emit laser beams from eyes, flight, invulnerable to most attacks

Brief History: Superman is the sole survivor of Krypton. His father was a great scientist and was able to predict the impending doom that their planet will face. Before the planet destructed Superman was sent out to the nearest livable planet which is Earth. He was then adopted by a good couple and kept his true identity a secret for many years. Nevertheless, hiding his true origin was impossible as Superman gradually discovers his special gifts. He can fly, has tremendous strength and speed, can see through walls, and emit lasers from his eyes. Of course no human could possibly have such kind of powers. After knowing where he came from and seeing that the world needs a protector, he then decided to be the Superman all of us love, and disguise as Clark Kent, a journalist.

Strengths and Weaknesses: Despite Superman’s insane powers, he can easily be beaten through a piece of rock. Kryptonite, which is a remnant of his planet, can greatly weaken Superman. His arch nemesis, Luthor knows about this fact and often uses such kind of rock to even threaten Superman’s life. However, Superman’s will to fight for justice never fails to give him the strength in facing even seemingly invulnerable foes.

The Battle:

A month after Son Goku defeated Cell, he set forth to Metropolis with Bulma in search for the four star dragonball. Son Goku was very eager to complete the Dragonballs as soon as possible to revive all his friends killed by Cell. Bulma’s Dragonball radar pointed on a construction site. Goku searched for it and started digging. His tremendous punches were enough to destroy huge boulders of rock and he was able to create a huge crater in just minutes. The whole Metropolis shook each time Son Gokus punch lands and Superman was alarmed as to what or who caused the turmoil. Son Goku has not bad intention as he was merely digging for the dragonball yet Superman does not know what he is up to. Son Goku finally had a glimpse of the four star dragonball and was about to reach for it when a man with a blue suit and red cape grabbed his leg and thrown him straight towards nearby construction materials. Bulma was shocked to see Superman. She knows Superman is a good fellow and it’s just a big misunderstanding but Son Goku’s thirst for a good fight was awakened. He challenged Superman on a brawl away from the city and the Kyptonian agreed without hesitation. Son Goku initiated the fight with his famous technique, Kame-Hame Wave. Superman was almost caught by the explosion yet his superhuman speed helped him escape unharmed. Nevertheless, Son Goku was nowhere to be found. Superman was caught off guard as Son Goku kneed him in the stomach then pounced the back of his head with a two handed slam. Superman fell harshly on the ground and created a huge explosion. Son Goku assured his victory by throwing countless balls of energy straight to Superman. He stopped and waited for the dust and ruins to clear and was surprised to see that Superman was not there. The Superhero initiated a surprise attack of his own and punched Son Goo on the face. He then grabbed the Sayan on the feet and started whirling him. The momentum drastically increased in absurd amount in a matter of minutes and Superman let go of Son Goku sending him straight to the ground. Superman is not done yet as he grabbed huge rocks and threw them towards Son Goku. Superman thought he won but Son Goku was able to emerge from the debris. The two might heroes are heavily breathing. They decided to finish the fight with one last confrontation. Son Goku focused all his energy in a fist and charged straight towards Superman. The Kryptonian accepted the challenged and threw a punch that can shake the world. The impact was unimaginable as their energies met. Bulma finally caught up with them and saw a figure falling from the sky. It was Superman. Son Goku caught him mid-air and laid him on the ground. He then asked Bulma to let Superman have a Magic Bean to heal him. Superman recovered and was pleased to know that Son Goku shares the same goal which is to protect earth. They shook hands and parted ways looking forward to fight together someday as allies.
