Top 10 Superhero vs Superhero Battles

Updated on March 6, 2013

Top 10 Superheroes Vs Matches for Your Inner Comic Book Geek

As any avid comic book fan would tell you, the first thing superheroes do when they encounter each other is not to team up. Nay, that would be logical. The first thing superheroes do when they cross paths is GET...IT...ON! So why do superheroes fight each other? Because it makes for good comic books, son. Don't question it.

If you're the type of guy that sports a skintight Black Lightning costume at a comic book convention, this article is for you. If you're above the age of 30 and you live in your parent's basement, you'll enjoy the crap out of this. If you have never read a comic book and think they're for kids or weirdos, you suck. Read it anyway.

On with the mothaluvin' countdown!

10. Aquaman vs. Prince Namor

It's a fish fry!

In this corner, you have Prince Namor who has a bad attitude and some pointy freakin' ears. And in the other corner, you have Aquaman. Yeah...Aquaman.

Hopefully there is some water around somewhere when these 2 meet or it's gonna be over with before it starts. While the combatants are fairly evenly matched, I have Aquaman coming out on top. His telepathic ability to summon guppies would totally take out Namor.

True story--when I was little, I had a Super Powers Aquaman action figure chilling in my fish tank, trident in hand. He had that corny grin on his face that was a requirement of all superheroes back in the day. Anyway, I would strategically place little fish food pellets on Aquaman's privates and then watch the fish go all piranha on his junk! Suck it, Aquachump. I am the boss of you.

Aquaman FTW!

9. Green Lantern vs. Silver Surfer

Two cosmic dudes.

This is one of the more difficult battles to dissect. I mean, Hal Jordan is an O.G. (Original GL) but the Silver Surfer can fly through space and he's shiny. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

After a lot of back and forth tussling, big green boxing gloves flying, and pinkish cosmic energy zappin', ultimately Norrin Rad wins this one. That pains me to admit, as a huge Green Lantern fan. But the Surfer would totally kick sand in GL's face and then take his girlfriend. Take her somewhere inappropriate!

Silver Surfer FTW!

8. Daredevil vs. Nightwing

I'm not handicapped! I'm handicapable!

Let's not even waste time on this one. Sure, Matt Murdock is all emo-moody and he's got a sweet billy club (which really pisses Billy off) and that kooky radar sense. But Nightwing is Batman's prodigy. I mean, c'mon. He's like Batman lite. He's Batman minus the rage. He's Batman Jr. and he don't need no stinkin' sidekick.

He's Bat-tastic, that's what he is.

After making fun of his handicap and farting in his general direction, Dick Grayson smacks DD upside the head with a Batarang and KRAKOW! Good night, sister.

Nightwing FTW!

7. Hawkman vs. Angel

Where's my BB gun?

Hawkman all the way on this one. Sure, Angel can Hulk out and turn into Archangel on command now. His razor sharp wingblade thingys are pretty impressive and could do some serious damage. But Hawkman is pure testosterone. He drinks gasoline and kicks puppies. He would take Angel's library card and totally rip it in half with total disregard for the .05 cent per day late fees. That's the kind of monster he is.

As a side note, if I had wings my superhero name would be Birdpoop Man. I would probably be classified as a villain though, 'cause I would fly around the city and drop turds on unsuspecting passersby. Incoming!

Hawkie FTW!

6. Hercules vs. Thor

Asgard! Get it? *Snicker*

Let's be honest, Mjolinir gives blondie an unfair advantage here. Were this a fair fight and no weapons allowed, Herc would just barely have the edge over Thor. But ol' Goldilocks don't fight fair!

After giving Thor a good whuppin' and pulling the wings off his little jew-helmet, Thor gets all kindsa pissed and fries Hercules with a blast of lightning from yon sky! (Wait a minute...isn't thor the God of THUNDER? How does he summon lightning? Hrm...)

Verily, Thor FTW!

5. Wonder Woman vs. She-Hulk

Cat Fight! Meow.

Anybody that knows anything about chick fights realizes that there are only 2 types of chick fights in existence: 1) tickle fights, and 2) pillow fights. There is simply no need for a third.

So who wins the match? I'll tell you who wins. Men. A few strategically torn articles of clothing and lots of inappropriate grappling later, and men the world over win.

Other than that, Wonder Woman won.

Wonder Chick FTW!

4. Batman vs. The Punisher

The Big Pun is all guns, and Batman hates guns. Hates 'em like Rosie O'Donnell hates dieting. And men.

Frank Castle is the baddest of the bad and pure rage. Bats has his share of rage too but he has learned to temper and channel it. This would be a very bloody, cutthroat battle. Ultimately, using his keen intellect, mastery of various martial arts and bat-shark repellant, Bruce Wayne comes out on top. But the Punisher escapes to fight another day screaming, "Can't catch me!"

Brucie FTW!

3. Batman vs. Captain America

Bruce vs. Steve -- battle of the terrible first names, begin!

What the deuce? Batman shows up twice on this list, AND twice in a row? Yeah, turns out he does. Deal with it.

This long lasting battle would consist of counter move after counter move. Both warriors would struggle to gain an edge over the other. Eventually, Batman would find some weakness to exploit and slap the wing-tips off Cap's face. Standing over his foe in victory, Batman exclaims, "Captain America? More like Captain A-hole!"

Batman's a jerk.

Batman FTW!

2. Captain Marvel (Shazam!) vs. Superman

Shouldn't his name be Captain DC? I'm just sayin'.

Hard to believe anyone could beat Superman. I mean, he's Superman. He's the manliest of men. He's the dude that girls want and guys want to be like. And let's be honest, some guys probably want to "like" him too. Like him at the Hotel No-Tell.

I'm sorry but Captain Marvel emerges as the winner here. Little Billy Batson pops a zit and then screams out Shazam!, turning into that dude wearing Flash's costume but with a cape. Cap's magic-based powers give him the edge since everybody knows Superman is only vulnerable to Kryptonite and magic. Oh, and a really nice floral arrangement.

Captain Marvel FTW!

1. Thing vs. The Hulk

Time to clobber-smash?

The Battle Royale, the Main Event, the Fight of the Century! Or at least of this article.

Thing is orange and made of rocks. Strong ones. Hulk is green and wears him some magically stretchy purple pants. Why did we just discuss that? I don't know.

The Thing is slightly less strong but obviously has intellect (barely) as an advantage. The Hulk is a french fry short of a Happy Meal but he has this in his back pocket: the madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets. And it just so happens that the Hulk gets pissed pretty freakin' easy.

In the beginning of their titanic tussle, the match would be fairly even. But as time passes and Hulk becomes angrier, he starts to completely hand the Thing his a$$. Coulda seen that coming.

Hulk FTW!

Da End.

Uh, you're welcome.

So that's it. Hope you enjoyed yourself on our little walk through the beatdowns on Superhero Street. We have an equally awesometastic article about the Top 10 People Mr. T Should Beat Up if you'd like to give it a read. Which you would.

And I'm out like a fat kid in dodgeball. Peace and chicken grease!

      Not a bad effort by any stretch. I would've loved to see your take on Superman vs the Hulk, however. Of course, they're in different universes, soo...

      This was positively hilarious! I do happen to disagree though with the Superman vs Shazam bout. But you forgot to add the most important one - although perhaps you just didn't want to do the whole "comic book universe crossover thing": a Hulk superman superhero battle!?

      Dd is a faggot batman or nightwing would rape his mother then deficate all over his body then drown him in semen kill his friends then just for fun bring dd back to life and fuck with his senses using sonic waves or making multiple heart beats from diff locations....they have money and are better detectives and more martial arts than homo ass dd

      @ImmatureEntrepr: Pretty sure most of your opinions are wrong. Batman beat capt america? Only if he has time to plan and capt doesn't land a single blow. He could tear batmans head of with his bare hand or throw him into space remember?

      Daredevil has best Spiderman, Punisher and Wolverine in combat! The guy can stop bullets with is adamantium billy clubs/Nunchucks/staff! And on many occasion has sent them flying back at his opponent the man has Radar sense and Superhuman senses his feat is that his equilibrium and motions of the body can never be thrown off ( Xavier claims this is where he may be a mutant ) he can hear a persons motion, heartbeat over 4 blocks away! He is trained by the leader of The Hand sensi Stick ! And is skilled in many diverse of MMA disciplines as much or more than Batman himself LIST:These are the unique blends of the martial arts of Ninjutsu, Aikijujutsu, Jujutsu, Kung Fu, capoeira, Judo, Aikido, wrestling and stick fighting combined with American-style boxing while making full use of his gymnastics capabilities. Set aside being a LAW genius! He is also a skilled detective, tracker, and interrogation expert, as well as being an expert marksman that revivals Hawkeye and at times his foe BullsEye( who's mutant power is always being on mark and never missing ! ) Not to mention he has obtained Mystical insight through his battles with Darkchylde, Dorumanu, Black heart and Mephisto. He has also been shown to expel his Chi as was taught to him by Danny Rand ( Iron Fist ) to where he had the exploding fist ! A rogue Gallery deemed fit and akin to Batman's. All that and being dubbed the MAN WITHOUT FEAR!! I'm sorry some flying circus kid turned Boy Wonder under Batman's cloak turned into Nightwing would not beat DD !!

      Nightwing is awesome, but in my book vs him and Daredevil it's a draw too, a fair tie to much respect for both.

      Im pretty sure all of these battles have happened with different results. Amalgam and the Crossovers took care of all of these. as well as infinite crisis and so on. Pretty sure the results are incorrect here.

      I'm a little disappointed you don't have the Hulk vs. Superman battle on your list. (It was a DC/Marvel crossover from a while back.) Still it.s a good list. If you get a chance, check out my quiz on superheroes.

      Thor already beat herc and his dad I think ss could beat green lantern she hulk should take on wonder woman cause she can b cut but idk about them two. Also namor is stronger then aquaman in water and land nd as for batman cap I think would win in a long battle I think cause his strength nd abilty with that shield also his war background

      hercules does not give thor beat that badly before goldilocks is forced to use lightning,

      they may tie, u know, the comic states that hercules is superior to him only in wrestling, and

      so hercules will have a tough time
