Taken from kalafudra.
And like her, these are my personal favourites, rather than who I think would win a fight. Because I am not nerd enough for the latter challenge, not by half.
With the caveat – most of my superhero experience would be from TV or Movie incarnations of said heroes, never went in for print comics much
Male Against Male
1. Conan or Superman?
Superman. Purely by exposure. Though once Jason Momoa’s Conan comes out I may be a changed woman. (Or at least a very drooly one.)
2. Spiderman or Silver Surfer?
Cartoon version Silver Surfer. Not from the Fantastic 4 movie. The live-action movies were not as cool as the cartoons ever were, and the second movie particularly so.
3. Captain America or Batman?
Batman. Don’t think I’ve ever come across Captain America before.
4. Wolverine or Cyclops?
Wolverine. I’m nothing if not a patriot. Please pass this message on to Hugh Jackman so he can send his (preferably shirtless) thanks.
5. Daredevil or The Phantom?
Ugh – hard work. Awful Ben Affleck or Awful Billy Zane? It’s like picking a dish off an offal menu when you can’t stand offal but you have to eat something… I’m going to go Phantom, because I’ve probably seen that movie once more than Daredevil.
6. Hellboy or Hulk?
Hellboy. The Hulk has just had too many incarnations recently, spoils it a bit.
7. The Flash or Green Lantern?
Haven’t really had much experience of either…
8. The Punisher or Blade?
Blade – guilty pleasure. Even Blade III *hangs head in shame*
9. Zorro or Thor?
Zorro. 100%. There’s something physiologically wrong with anyone who could pass on Banderas…
10. Blade or Spawn?
Blade again. They should probably have had someone else unique here?
Female Against Female
1. Batgirl or Supergirl?
Batgirl. I mean come on, she’s a librarian. Who else was I going to pick?
2. Elektra or Catwoman?
Catwoman. I was always Catwoman when I played Batman with my friends in grade 1. Happy memories.
3. Wonder Woman or Phoenix?
Wonder Woman – never heard of Phoenix
4. She-Hulk or She-Ra?
*sings* She-Ra! Princess of Power! (Admittedly, I wasn’t aware there even was a She-Hulk…)
5. Ultra-Violet or Wildstorm?
I’ve never heard of either of these superheroes…
6. Wonder Woman or Elektra?
Again, hard choice. Megan Fox (who I can’t stand) in a role I haven’t seen, or Jennifer Garner (who I love) in a terrible role? I’m going Elektra purely out of Garner loyalty, and I’ll just have to cringe later…
7. Leeloo or Buffy?
Why are these two even paired together – they’re absolutely nothing alike for comparison! I’m going with Leeloo, because unlike Buffy she never did anything that remotely annoyed me, and Buffy was on the odd occasion maddening as hell.
8. Queen of Swords or Xena?
Xena by default, as I have no idea who the Queen of Swords is.
9. Red Sonja or Nikita?
I assume Nikita = La Femme Nikita? I’ve never heard of Red Sonja before…
10. Storm or Wonder Woman?
Storm. And cartoon Storm, rather than Halle Berry Storm.
Female Against Male
1. Buffy or Blade?
I think Blade. Wesley Snipes’ one-liners are just too priceless to pass up.
2. She-Hulk or Hellboy?
Hellboy – but again, by default.
3. Red Sonja or Conan?
Conan – default again.
4. Supergirl or Superman?
Superman. Supergirl was kind of lame…
5. Xena or Spiderman?
Xena. I love the cheesiness…
6. UltraViolet or The Punisher?
Haven’t really come across either one…
7. Queen of Swords or Zorro?
Zorro – by default, true. But also because he’s awesome
8. Catwoman or Cyclops?
Catwoman. Cyclops is a whiny girl…
9. Nikita or Batman?
Batman. Batman would win pretty much any competition hands down though.
10. Phoenix or Silver Surfer?
Silver Surfer, by default.
