When it comes to superhero movies or comic books, two names stand out tall above all others; DC and Marvel. DC and Marvel universes have entertained comic book lovers and movie lovers for decades, and they continue doing a great job at it. In both Universes, there are forces of good that are represented by superheroes, and forces of evil that are represented by super villains.
In almost every story, good triumphs over evil in the end, which is what we all love to believe, right? However, there are some super villains with powers that are beyond what the good guys can handle, and their appearance on the scene always strikes fear in the readers or audience. Therefore, in both universes the superheroes tend to unite in order to combine their powers and abilities in an attempt to defend the earth and the universe, and the most prominent groups here include the Avengers in the Marvel Universe and the Justice League in the DC Universe.
Over the years we have seen the Justice League fighting against DC villains, and the same case applies to the Avengers over at Marvel. However, have you ever wondered how the fights would be if members of the Justice League were to fight against some of the toughest Marvel super villains, or the outcome of the fights between members of the Avengers against some of the worst DC villains?
Here are a few cross-universe fights that you might have never thought you would see, and some predictions of who would win these battles. Do you agree with these predictions?
10. Thor Vs. Darkseid
Thor is a god, meaning that he is in a league that most superheroes will never reach. Thor is almost invulnerable to physical injury, he can regenerate wounded parts of his body, he is the strongest Asgardian, he has unmatched stamina, he has super human speed, reflexes and agility, he can manipulate elements of nature, he has limited control over the earth and he can destroy anything with his hammer.
On the other hand, Darkseid is one of the new gods, and he happens to be one of the most powerful of his kind. This god can teleport himself through space and time, he can move with great speed, react in Nano seconds, has immeasurable strength, and he can increase his physical strength. Darkseid has telepathic and telekinetic powers, he is immortal, he can transpose the positions of two planets in different solar systems, and his signature Omega Beams from his hands or eyes can disintegrate or erase any organism from existence.
The battle between these two would cause the destruction of a few planets or galaxies, but in the end Darkseid seems as if he would prevail over Thor. However, if Thor was able to achieve a state of “Warrior’s Madness” where his stamina and strength would increase tenfold, it would make it even harder for Darkseid to win.
9. Black Widow Vs. Cat Woman
The Black Widow is definitely the most dangerous woman in the Marvel universe, owing to her superior fighting skills, her resilience, her ability to resist all forms of biological attacks, and her superior intellect. The Black Widow is an expert acrobat, gymnast, athlete, aerialist, and weapons specialist, with advanced martial arts training and perfect balance. She can also manipulate people psychologically and has extensive training in espionage.
On the other hand, Cat Woman, just like Batman, is an expert when it comes to fighting using themed weapons, equipment, and cars. She has specialized training on the use of the whip and caltrops that come handy in battle, and she is also known to use sleeping gas, knockout darts, and weapons that neutralize any threat that she perceives can take her in hand-to-hand combat.
A fight between Black Widow and Cat Woman would definitely be a cat fight, but the Black Widow would by all means overcome the Cat. The level of training, resilience, and physical abilities of the Black Widow are too advanced for the Cat Woman to contend with, although we’re sure Selina Kyle would have a few surprises in store.
8. Green Lantern Vs. Magneto
Without his ring, the Green Lantern is just any other human being out there without any superpowers; however, give him his ring and he becomes one of the fiercest defenders of the universe. The ring gives the wearer invulnerability, the power of flight, superhuman strength, the ability to create objects out of nothing, the ability to create an indestructible force field, and the ability to move at superhuman speeds.
On the other hand, Magneto is one of the most powerful mutants, given his unique ability to manipulate magnetic fields through which he can control ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Magneto can also levitate himself and anyone or anything else he wants, he can generate electromagnetic pulses, turn invisible at will and project an indestructible force-field. He can increase his durability and strength to far beyond the human ability, manipulate gravity, produce a wormhole and teleport himself or anyone else with him through it, plus he is a genius.
A fight between the Green Lantern and Magneto would be too close to call, since these two have very useful superpowers. However, after an extremely tough fight, Magneto seems as if he would overpower the Green Lantern.
7. Iron Man Vs. Lex Luthor
Iron man is one of the most powerful Avengers and is arguably the most loved superhero of the Marvel universe. Iron Man’s armour transforms Tony Stark, or any other wearer, into a superhero with phenomenal strength and durability, the ability to fly, and the most advanced assortment of weapons.
On the other hand, Lex Luthor, just like Tony Stark, has all the physical limitations of a human being, but what makes him one of the worst villains in the DC universe is his superior intelligence. Lex is depicted as being more intelligent than all human beings on earth and as intelligent as the most intelligent species of any planet. His intelligence makes him so dangerous because he is able to design suits and weapons that can seriously injure or even destroy the most powerful superheroes.
A battle between Iron Man and Lex Luthor would be outstanding to watch, because each of these guys is a serious pro in their own right. However, my money would be on Iron Man, simply because he is a good guy with superior fighting skills, and that kryptonite or any other trick up Lex Luthor’s sleeve would have no effect on the Avenger.
6. Martian Manhunter Vs. Ultron
The Martian Manhunter is arguably the most powerful member of the justice league, owing to his wide variety of superpowers. The Martian Manhunter has superhuman strength, the power of regeneration, flight, self-sustenance, superior durability, shape-shifting abilities to adopt human or monstrous appearance, telekinesis, telepathy, he has the power of intangibility where he can pass through solid objects, he has extrasensory input, he can turn invisible at will, and he can produce optic blasts. The Martian Manhunter is far more powerful than Superman, and Superman knows that full well.
On the other hand, Ultron is a force to reckon with in the Marvel Universe, because it has superhuman strength, stamina, speed, durability, and has offensive weapons at its disposal that can destroy any foe. Ultron can control the minds of its opponents, it is a genius, and it can self-repair and make calculations at superhuman speeds. Ultron’s circuitry is protected from all forms of danger, and it can restructure its physical form at will.
The Martian Manhunter would have one of his biggest challenges of his life going against an extremely and worthy adversary in the form of an intelligent machine. The Martian’s only known weakness is fire, and if fire is not involved in the fight Ultron would be defeated after a very complicated battle.
5. Batman Vs. Deadpool
Batman might not have any superpowers, but his genius intellect, exceptional fighting skills, athleticism, and scientific knowledge make him as dangerous as or even more dangerous than any of his Justice League counterparts. Batman is an expert detective, an exceptional martial artist that can take anyone in the DC universe in hand-to-hand combat and win. He has clever and very lethal gadgets at his disposal, and he is so dangerous that he could defeat the entire Justice League if they all turned against the human race.
On the other hand, Deadpool is a Marvel Universe villain who has accelerated healing abilities; he can regenerate destroyed tissues, resist all human diseases, and resist all forms of telepathic and psychic control. In addition, Deadpool is a skilled swordsman, an expert martial artist, a trained assassin, and he can survive decapitation or even incineration.
The fight between Batman and Deadpool would not be an easy call, but Batman would most likely come out on top. The problem here is that, in addition to the fact that Batman never likes to kill anyone, killing Deadpool would be next to impossible.
4. Captain America Vs. Brainiac
Captain America might be a human being with no special superhuman powers or indestructible suit of armour, but that does not mean he is an average Joe. Captain America received the Super-Soldier Serum treatment that transformed him into a soldier with super strength, agility, speed, endurance, durability, reflexes, and healing potential. Captain America is an expert battle tactician, a great field commander, and a master in Judo, kickboxing, gymnastics, western boxing, and multiple martial arts.
On the other hand, Brainiac’s special ability is his intellect. His memory, enhanced understanding in all forms of human and alien knowledge, his calculating abilities, and his ability to design devices such as a force field belt, a shrink ray, and a ship that can overpower the strongest members of the justice league, make Brainiac a force to be reckoned with.
A battle between Captain America and Brainiac would be very interesting to watch, especially because these two have very different abilities. Without a doubt, Captain America has the power to destroy Brainiac in hand-to-hand combat, but when you consider the intelligence and gadgets at the disposal of Brainiac, the villain in this case would take the day.
3. Wonder Woman Vs. Dark Phoenix
Wonder Woman (Diana) is one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Universe, owing to the powers that she possesses. Diana is the strongest female superhero in her Universe, and has accelerated healing abilities, and superior intelligence, wisdom and military prowess. Diana has enhanced visual and hearing senses, she is resistant to the effects of supernatural and natural fire, and she can fly at almost the speed of light. In addition to her striking beauty, Diana’s “lasso of truth” forces everyone confined by it to tell the truth. Diana is resistant to extreme temperatures, concussive force, and is almost indestructible when she wears her bracelets and makes use of all the powers she inherited from her father.
On the other hand, Jean Grey used to be part of the X-Men, but when she became the Dark Phoenix, she became the most powerful villain the X-Men have ever faced in the Marvel Universe. She is an omega level mutant, with advanced telepathy and telekinesis abilities, and thanks to the Phoenix Force, she has escalated powers of flight, survival in any atmosphere, manipulation of cosmic and electromagnetic forces, and she can teleport anywhere in the universe instantaneously. Jean can create cosmic flames that do not require oxygen that can burn anything she wants, she can resurrect from the dead, and she can absorb, rechannel, preserve, or revive life force, meaning that she can take life from one person and give it to another person.
A fight between Wonder Woman and Dark Phoenix would be one of the toughest battles the universe has ever seen. Although Wonder Woman is one of the strongest and most powerful women in the DC Universe, she does not stand a chance defeating Dark Phoenix without help from the entire Justice League.
2. Hulk Vs. Doomsday
The Hulk is undoubtedly the strongest and the most resilient member of the Avengers because he can survive a nuclear explosion, extremely high temperatures, and planet shattering impacts. The more you anger the Hulk, the stronger and more indestructible he gets. Hulk’s ability to regenerate, to endure, and to resist injury depends on how angry he is. Hulk will smash anything and everything in his path, regardless of size, speed, ability, or nature, and unless Bruce Banner intervenes, there is usually no way of stopping the Hulk.
On the other hand, Doomsday can resist ordinary injury, he has an accelerated ability to heal from the most fatal of attacks, and he has weapons that can help him to defeat any opponent. Doomsday has immense resistance to cold, heat, and conventional damage, giving him the ability to survive in the harshest of environments. Doomsday’s superhuman strength and fighting abilities can make him stand up against the complete Justice League and have a chance at winning.
A battle between the Hulk and Doomsday would definitely be a must watch, because these two indestructible beings are in a league of their own. However, after a very long and gruesome fight, the Hulk would most definitely emerge as the better of the two.
1. Superman Vs. Thanos
Superman is one of the most powerful and most popular superheroes of all time, and his love for humanity, his superpowers and extraordinary abilities are to thank for it all. Superman has superhuman strength, can move faster than a speeding bullet, he can fly, he is resistant to any non-magical attacks, he has superior hearing and visual abilities, he is extremely intelligent, he has super breath, and he is indestructible. Superman’s only weakness is kryptonite, such that even the weakest villain can kill him if superman was exposed to kryptonite for a long period.
On the other hand, Thanos is a Titanian Eternal with enhanced superhuman strength, durability, and stamina. His ability to absorb and project huge quantities of cosmic energy, his telepathy, telekinetic, and matter manipulation abilities, and his Titan training in hand-to-hand combat make him one of the worst villains in the Marvel Universe. Furthermore, Thanos is a genius in all forms of science, and he can teleport, travel through time, and move through alternate universes.
A fight between Superman and Thanos would be the fight of the millennium, because both these characters are extremely strong. However, if Thanos had a way of acquiring kryptonite, he would crush Superman like a bug, but it would be almost impossible to beat Superman in the absence of kryptonite.
