DC/Marvel Tourney, DC Heavy Hitters Region, Round 3

The third round of voting begins now!

Simply choose which characters you think would win in a (non “to the death”) fight in the following match-up. The voting concludes 48 hours from right now!

Each competitor has, let’s say, a half hour to prepare (so it’s not like Darkseid just walking up to Wonder Woman and punching her in the face – Wonder Woman would be prepared), and can use whatever weaponry you figure would be typical for that character (so Martian Manhunter can use whatever weapons you would expect him to normally use, but he can’t go get, I dunno, the Infinity Gauntlet, or whatever). In this particular poll, we’re using the New 52 versions of these characters. Also, a quick word on prep-time. When I say “prepare,” I really mean planning. They can’t, like, do anything to the place where they fight or anything like that. They can just quickly prepare for their opponent.



Superman Vs Martian Manhunter: Easy win for superman. Heat vision sets something on fire, J’onn is defeated. Even in a direct fist fight Supes could probably win easily.

Darkseid Vs Wonder Woman: Slightly trickier. The problem is Darkseid’s power level will entirely depend upon the writer sometimes he can be defeated by a single individual, sometimes he can disintegrate whole armies. As we are taking the New-52 only I am going to go with Wonder Woman. She regularly fights gods and we have seen her be able to deflect his Omega beams and her weapons are able pierce his forcefield.
At the same time we have seen little evidence of great strategy yet from Darkseid nor anything that could counter Amazonian technology.


Wonder Woman

As it should be.

I’m rooting for a Cinderella story upset with the Martian.

Well I actually voted for Supergirl to beat J’onn because of the heat vision so I’m even less convinced he could win this round. Even if he can avoid the heat vision Superman has psychic safeguards and can take this into space where he can absorb yellow sun until he just infinite mass punches him into submission.

Gonna say Diana’s strategic mind and magical arsenal is enough to give her an edge. And illogical as it might seem to some, her bracelets have stopped the Omega beams.

I like the Cosmic Odyssey version of Darkseid who batted Superman back with ease so Wonder Woman would be no problem for him.

And yeah I know they say Martian Manhunter is as powerful as Superman, but no-one really believes it.

Wonder Woman has faced Darkseid a zillion times and trounced him pretty decisively.

I’d love to say J’onn could take Supes, and sure he could, with some serious planning, but it’s pretty unlikely.

J’Onn gets into Superman’s head and screws with it enough to win. Superman Ina’s been taken over by Max Lord and telepathically fooled by white Martians before.

Compared to the Marvel tournament this is embarrassing.

Superman has pathetic resistance to magic, he was ripped to shreds by poisoned TEETH. There is no way he would have beaten Zatana

Swamp Thing is basically impossible to beat. Wonder Woman wouldn’t have got past him.

I at first picked Superman over J’Onn. Heat vision, etc. But then, with 30 min prep time, and invisibility (which ok,, super hearing negates) telepathy (which Kal-El is VERY susceptible to) and shape shifting, it’s not clear that J’Onn could not eek out a win.

Darkseid over Wonder Woman. Amazon warrior against a New God, ruler of a dark planet, and a master schemer.
