Marvel Vs. DC Revisited Part 3

My memorial weekend blogging vacation is over. Let's get back to talking about Marvel people fighting DC people. That's always a good time. When we last left off Marvel was up 3 to 2 in this contest of champions that revisits a mid 90's crossover event.

Wonder Woman Vs. Storm

I thought about changing this one to Wonder Woman Vs. Ms. Marvel, as I feel those two would match up better. However, unlike the Silver Surfer, Storm is quite active in the Marvel U as of late. Making a substitution for this fight just didn't make sense.

In my opinion, I don't see any reason why Wonder Woman wouldn't kick the stuffing out of Storm. Anyone who could beat up Batman and Superman, should be able to beat someone that can control the weather. Not that Storm is a slouch in a fight, but Wonder Woman is a serious bad ass. That's just my opinion though. My opinion means nothing in comparison to the thousands of fan votes that would go into this.

What it comes down to is that Storm is a mainstay in the X-Men. That "X" on her uniform makes her untouchable in the eyes of fans. I going to say that Storm takes this one, probably in a really lame way, like in the original story. Storm kept hitting her with lightning until she was unconscious...I hated it. (Marvel 4 DC 2)

Deadpool Vs. Deathstroke

There was a match-up between Robin and Jubilee in the original crossover...but that was stupid then, and it's stupid now. Deadpool Vs. Deathstroke is way more fun and bloody!

I can only imagine this fight going down with Deathstroke beating the hell out of Deadpool for a long time. Only to have Deadpool just keep getting back up. All the while delivering one liners to piss Deathstroke off more and more, as the fight goes on. This is comic book gold here guys. This particular issue of this miniseries would print money! In fact, if DC and Marvel don't do this fight, I will sue them for denying the world of something awesome. This would be right after I sue Mattel for not making hoverboards yet.

Who would win if this was put to a fan vote? Deadpool would, duh! Deathstroke is awesome, but the kids love Deadpool to iddle biddle pieces. This would be an amazing, and no doubt hilarious, fight though. (Marvel 5 DC 2)

Aquaman Vs. Namor

It's an undersea battle that's bigger in scope than the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico!....what? It's not too soon for that is it? I don't know, I don't get out of the house anymore.

Aquaman just came back from the dead and can now summon zombie sea creatures. That is pretty metal. Namor is currently a member of the X-Men, and he's still a jerk like he was in the 90's.

I view this one going down the same way as their original battle in '96 did. Aquaman gets the fan votes that lead him to victory over Namor. Keep in mind that is despite the fact Namor is on the X-Men. Unlike Storm, he's not really seen as an X-Man by the fans. Instead of Aquaman finishing off Namor with commanding a whale to jump on him (yeah that really happened), he'll just summon a zombie giant squid to choke Namor out. That would be awesome! (Marvel 5 DC 4)

Wolverine Vs. Lobo

It doesn't matter who you put against Wolverine, he wins. You can put anyone from the Justice League up against him, and fans will vote for Wolverine. Wolverine is the one thing that we, as a race of creatures, can agree upon when it comes ass kickings. Lobo just happens to be the poor schlub that has to go up against him. This would be the comic book equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters Vs. The Washington Generals. The Generals are never going to win, and neither is Lobo. Wolverine wins, end of story. (Marvel 6 DC 4)


  1. NO WAY Storm is more popular than Wonder Woman. Absolutely no way.

    Wolverine vs Wolverine: There was a good 3 part story in Exiles a few years ago that pitted a group of alternate dimension Wolverines vs a bunch of other alternate dimension Wolverines.

  2. what tony said, i agree with the other aqua-man winning,and wolverine is way more popular than lobo, but wonder woman is an icon, more people definitely know wonder woman than storm.

  3. Okay, then why did she win the first time around? If nobody knows who she is then why would they have voted for her the first time around. I think more people prefer Storm over Wonder Woman, thus would vote for her. I'm sticking to my guns on this one.
