Lex wins the fight even though the Joker would give him a very annoying and frustrating battle. Captain Marvel takes it against the Flash mainly because Captain can pretty much take on Superman and thus take out Flash in a..uh, flash.

I'm voting for Flash taking out Shazam. Just cause he can be quite broken depending on the writer, although this is true of both Supes/Shaz/Brack Adam type characters.
Anyone remember the name of the guy from the future who was in an armored suit, and gave a lot of DC characters a run for their money¿ I think Hawk from the Hawk and Dove series, ended up being an iteration of him.

you're talking about Monarch from the Armageddon crossover

SqueakyBloom said on February 11, 2013 at 9:45 a.m.

@2 Superman's powers and abilities in recent times have been more tamed, and because of that, Captain Marvel would have the edge due to his powers being magic based. Superman would be the one I would want to vote for in a Superman vs Captain Marvel fight, but Captain Marvel is the winner, unless we do include their whole entire history, then Superman is hands down the winner.

Well, these matchups are alot harder than last week's. But I'm going to vote of Lex, with his powersuit (otherwise I would vote Joker) and my boy, Barry Allen!!

@#6 hellbly:

Ya, him thanks. I had him as Emperor/Sovereign in my mind, and knew that was wrong.
I hope we get a New 52 version of him, and maybe have him in this game as well. He and Captain Atom were awesome.

#15
Cammystrike said on February 11, 2013 at 10:01 a.m.

Since this is just a popularity contest Joker will beat Lex, and Flash will beat Shazam. Even though Lex would win in actual fight against Joker, and the same goes for Shazam and Flash.

#16
Damonta said on February 11, 2013 at 10:02 a.m.

Flash would KO billy at the start of the fight before he can even say Shazam

#17
Aluppoj said on February 11, 2013 at 10:04 a.m.

Any battle you've got, Superman wins.

Strengths, weaknesses, it doesn't matter. That's because he's Superman. He always rises to the level necessary to overcome any obstacle.

Superman can be, and will always be as strong as he needs to be.

That's why he's the best.

(Watch the awesome Superman vs Shazam fight in JL unlimited to see a really cool fight between these two)

You can also read a great fight between them in Kingdom Come or Superman/Batman.

#18
danny2times said on February 11, 2013 at 10:07 a.m.

The flash is insanely powerful so he beats shazam. You gotta be able to touch him first and the flash can phase his body into basically being a ghost and while he's phasing he has a technique that makes his punch equivilent to an atom bomb.

Lex has no issues killing people so yeah joker takes one to the head and down he goes. He's got some gadgets that could help him against lex but the suit is built to fight the gods. Sorry mr.joker you lose.

#19
hellbly said on February 11, 2013 at 10:08 a.m.

@15 do you know that Cap Atom and Monarch were both in the Countdown to Final Crisis weekly? I was sad about DC ending the New 52 Cap Atom, but they're closing series like crazy: I find difficult to care about them anymore.

#20
danny2times said on February 11, 2013 at 10:16 a.m.

But superman loses to the silver surfer no contest.

#21
MALDA_IS_BACK said on February 11, 2013 at 10:17 a.m.

LOL Joker haves no chance in he'll vs Lex when he is wearing the power suit and Flash vs Shazam will be a good fight but the Flash will win because of speed force

#22
NyuBomber said on February 11, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.

Superman is simply vulnerable to magic, not weak to it. He'd continue to possess incredibly high levels of strength, stamina, toughness, and his other powers like heat vision in a fight against a magic user.

In the fight against Shazam, Superman would take it due to experience and resilience. Remember that behind the powers of Shazam is still a kid who is lucky if he's depicted as having hit puberty, nevermind having the experience to face the sort of threats Superman has faced for decades.

Flash vs Shazam, giving it to Flash.

As for Lex vs Joker, I'm giving the edge to Lex. Joker has the advantage of creativity and pure chaotic insanity, but Lex never even has to get close with his power suit.

Oroku_Saki said on February 11, 2013 at 10:21 a.m.

@#20:
Ya Hellbly. It's mostly the New 52 Bat-Family books I currently spend my money on.
There were some awesome New 52 series that got cancelled that just had me peeved. Atom inluded, I have those. And yes, I did read the Countdown to Final Crisis TPBs. I was glad to see Monarch there.
Booster Gold was another character I liked. I'm hoping we get more Michael Straczynski take on DC characters. I'm seriously entertained by his Superman: Earth One series.
I'm hoping that the new Marvel Now comics don't fail in similar fashion.

#24
Cinderkin said on February 11, 2013 at 10:27 a.m.

Did they ever even officially announce Shazam for this game? They just show a random video and here he is. I know we saw his pic last week but come on. What a crappy reveal for a character in your game.

#25
danny2times said on February 11, 2013 at 10:34 a.m.

@25 right!? The hype for this game is missing! I want to get excited about it but it doesn't seem like neatherrealm is?

EvilRick said on February 11, 2013 at 10:36 a.m.

Voted for Shazam and The Joker, can't wait for the battles!

Also, I got the Green Arrow DLC skyn I lost last votation. Isn't that sweet? ^^

@24 you're right, Snyder/Tomasi/Morrison are making great batman stories; I like most of the Lemire's stuff too: Animal Man, etc.
... true be told: I'm an old DC Geek, but I'm struggling with the new thin continuity.

Marvel NOW is pretty good.. for now :)
I'm liking most of the avengers series.

#32
jtir123 said on February 11, 2013 at 10:50 a.m.

Voted for Flash due to his ability to tap into the speed force, and voted for Joker because I like him better as a villain than Lex, though I do like both to some degree, and I know Lex in his power suit would just pawn the Joker.

@25 They're going to reveal all their characters in the Battle Arena, Shazam was never revealed, but leaked. Today was his reveal, and they'll be doing all the reveals in this format weekly. So on Thursday/Friday, we'll see the results of this one, and on Monday, we'll see the next four characters.

@33

That just takes away all the hype. They still haven't even shown gameplay for the Green Lantern and the dude is on the cover. It's pretty lame that they are showing all this stuff to Gaming Websites but not letting them show anything, and then they do these cheesy promo match ups instead of just revealing a character showcasing his/her best moves.

@36 Not going to lie though, last week's Harley vs WW did get me more interested in getting it (I haven't pre-ordered yet. I'm still waiting for the must buy character), it was clearly set up, but it showcased their moves to a good degree, and the stage showcase (interaction-transitions) was what won me over (which had been confirmed that you can turn them off).

But I do agree, that these are a tad bit cheesy, but not sure that it bugs me that much.

jihossj5 said on February 11, 2013 at 11:16 a.m.

Cinderkin said on February 11, 2013 at 11:21 a.m.

@39

I agree there hasn't been a Must Buy character. I am also glad to hear about turning off stage transitions as it is a cool feature but will get stale very quickly.

I already know that I am renting the game, but won't get to try online because they will use an online pass. I also know that they will release a complete edition with all the DLC characters and costumes so if I enjoyed my rental I will buy that version.

I spent about $125 on MK9 with the collectors edition and the DLC. I won't be doing that again.

#41
Evil_Hayato said on February 11, 2013 at 11:21 a.m.

#42
cadnexus said on February 11, 2013 at 11:24 a.m.

I laugh at the dudes thinking Flash can beat Shazam, Flash stands no chance, not even the speed force can do anything to Shazam because he's indestructible. I think a lot of you also forgot that Shazam is also fast so there's no way Flash could keep him from saying Shazam either. Yeah, Flash is faster, but he's not indestructible, no way close stronger, or even more powerful than Shazam. In a death battle realistically, Shazam can punch Flash's head off, and yes Shazam is fast enough that he could lay a punch to Flash's face. Flashes punches would have NO effect on Shazam except his all around the world bomb punch, but Shazam would get up from that and the Flash would be exhausted... Shazam takes him out right there.

Joker would lose against Luther.... bottom line.

Aluppoj said on February 11, 2013 at 12:06 p.m.

Sorry folks,

Superman beats gods and interstellar demigods alike all the time. (Shazam, Mongul, Darkseid)

He even throws down with inter dimensional foes who can control reality. (Mr. mxyplyzyk anyone?)

He has a little thing called Super intelligence. He figures out ways to beat "superior" adversaries all the time.

And it all depends on who writes him. Superman will always be written to rise to the occasion. Even against the Surfer.

(Who btw has been known to struggle in fights against Thor, Hulk and BetaRayBill) all characters that Superman could kill instantly.

I know that some characters are "technically" more powerful than Superman. But that sure as HeII don't mean they're going to beat Big Blue.

And that's because he is who he is. And no Cosmic Power in the Galaxy can make you more powerful than the Worlds love for Superman.

Superman wins, hands down.

#51
Deyrax said on February 11, 2013 at 12:09 p.m.

#51. Another troll arives. Go read some comics before saying sh&t. Silver Surfer beats Superman . Simply by draining him. Superman won't beat any of those in second. There are like hundreds of characters more powerful than Superman.

I'm sorry if I cause any major disturbance, but I wanted to check out this vid...and gawt dayum...this girl SUCKS. She's trying so hard to be hip it's awkward, the jokes are GOD AWFUL, and the only part I liked was the actual gameplay of the game and that overly buff dude with the giant water-horn (I mean, no homo, but that was awesome).

So on the plus side, you NRS guys got a promising fighter in the works. :D

#55
MMGboys said on February 11, 2013 at 12:29 p.m.

Voted for shazzam because I want to see more gameplay of him, we seen enough of the flash. The joker is my favorite villian so ou voted for him

#56
Aluppoj said on February 11, 2013 at 12:30 p.m.

@52

To each their own man. But I'm not trolling.

You can call out superpowers all day long hommie. Comics play by some rules. Otherwise characters like Superman could kill Batman in a millisecond.

But we say Batman is too smart for that right? He'd prepare.

Well guess what... Superman is kinda the Original SuperHero. He doesn't go out like that. I'm pretty sure even Marvel knows Superman is the best. He's basically gonna figure out a way to prevail. And he's not going to lose to a character like the Surfer.

I could sit here and explain why Spawn could beat Superman. But lmfao that would/could NEVER happen!

I like how you ignored all of my points though. Clever.

#57
ZenRazor said on February 11, 2013 at 12:39 p.m.

I have to go with The Flash i like Shazam but Flash would kill himself just to know he beat you i don't think Shazam would be willing to do that.Not to mention Flash isn't the fastest.As for J vs L i think Joker i mean come on Joker is smart as hell and even much smarter than Lex because he is able to get to most superhero's breaking point Lex never can.Btw Lex isn't the smartest Brainiac is.

#58
chipndip said on February 11, 2013 at 12:50 p.m.

Actually, Super Man is op as fking bawls. NO ONE beats Super Man. He's FKING INSANE. The amount of crap he's been written to pull is so overdone that it's difficult to put him in a fighting game in the first place. One version of Super Man even has the power to RESURRECT HIMSELF AND OTHERS, as well as create things out of nothing. All this on top of crap like his insane durability, speed, the ability to overheat specific parts of the body, standard heat vision (insanely hot), ice breath (like wtf?), and the strength to move planets.

If you care for your favorite character AT ALL, just don't EVER compare them to Super Man. He's a fking d**k. He gets powers handed to him like a b*tch's money to a pimp.

#59
gammabolt17 said on February 11, 2013 at 12:50 p.m.

...And soon as I comment about being civilized somebody has to derail the entire thread with childish insults and minimal input.

I also happen to agree with them. Let's just put all of Superman's powers to the side. This guy has the THICKEST plot armor of any character in damn near any medium. De-powered Clark Kent even beats everyone because of this lol. That may be an exaggeration but still.

#60
Deyrax said on February 11, 2013 at 12:55 p.m.

#57 I saw scrubs like you popping up in threads on comicvine and saying the same sh&t long time ago. Doesn't change the fact that Surfer beats Superman. I am a Superman fan. I know what he is capable of. But I know also what is Norrin capable of. Your points are nothing more than a pile of exaggerated bs you collected from respect threads without even reading a damn comic book. Stay free, fanboy.

@62

You must ain't read the whole convo. We know as far as powers go SS is capable and probably should beat Superman. Doesn't stop the fact that Superman will have a written in reason why he will win that fight, though. He wins fights purely off of being iconic.

Aluppoj said on February 11, 2013 at 1:07 p.m.

I've read'em buddy. I'm no scrub. I'm no troll. I've been posting here, and reading comics for quite some time. I think I read my first comic in 1983. How about you?

Cool name calling.

Superman is an icon. Deal with it.

In fact Batman would body the Surfer for free also. Because he is a better, more beloved, iconic superhero.

Please don't ever compare Superman to the failure that is Sentry.

Did anyone else notice the guy in the speedo? LOL at his horned water bottle.

Lex has the visible advantage over Joker; however Joker has nothing to lose whereas Lex can lose everything.

Flash vs Shazam is a toughy. Flash is definitely faster and can even freak up the time space if he goes too fast; this puts him at a risk as well. He can also become intangible but I'm sure Shazam can counter that.

This week isn't as black and white as last.

#73
EvilRick said on February 11, 2013 at 2:05 p.m.

@40: Yes, we know, but I believe the major reazon is that MARVEL licenced the "Captain Marvel" name to their own character and so DC began to refer to him as Shazam.

xShonuffx said on February 11, 2013 at 2:27 p.m.

@72 Its not that serious dude. Capcom was no different with SFxT either (*cough* Cross the line *cough*)at least she gets to the point here.

@73 Yup but Batman vs Bane was hardly black and white, both have records of beating eachother with Batman getting it the worst. It was more of a toss up if anything. Wonder Woman vs. Harley Quin was just a sad joke, even the host here knew it was no contest.

(If you've seen Death Battle, Superman info is from there) The Flash is not the fastest man alive, it would seem Superman is. Flash travels near/at the speed of light whereas Superman travels at 8 times the speed of light, he flew to the Sun and back in 1m 54secs, it takes 8mins 20secs for Sunlight to reach the Earth...Batman calculated Superman’s top speed at 17 Billion km/hr… So DC Comics what is the point of The Flash if Superman is faster than he is -_-

#84
NABFear said on February 11, 2013 at 3:38 p.m.

@MALDA_IS_BACK LOL Yeah someone on youtube just enlightened me to The Flash's feats: "He travelled at 64 times the speed of light, as established when he ran a town's entire population outside the blast radius of a Nuke in 2 seconds (which would take a speed of 64 times the speed of light)and he ran fast enough to reboot 3 universes." "Flash can break the space/time continuum."

Atleast Superman can be beaten in some aspects :-P

#85
Superman said on February 11, 2013 at 3:56 p.m.

superman is superman. he can withstand long battles and overcome with a victory. We don't know his limits and his Will makes him stronger. So it doesn't matter how strong his opponent maybe, supes will not give up until the very end whereas other characters might be drain due to the battle link and their condition. Of course if they use kryptonite **cough.. batman.... cough** they would beat him but thats to predictable and really makes the fight pointless unless Superman some how turns evil and destroy world.

Use Superman vs goku for example: the battle was long and superman was taking hits whereas goku was getting weak and going all out with his super sayains transformation draining all his powers.

#86
chipndip said on February 11, 2013 at 4 p.m.

@85 Where do these fking powers come from? Don't these guys know of "limitations"? "Nerfs"? "Restrictions"?

Even then, Superman wins. There's a lot of crap that Superman DOES have that The Flash doesn't.

-Projectiles (Lasers and super human strength to throw objects (not like throwing a car at him would help))

-Ice (freezing the floor would probably make The Flash turn into The Splat...on the wall...from hitting it so hard...)

-Flight (big advantage)

-Durability (taking nukes to the face...really?)

-Resurrection (cause Superman, bitch)

-Healing/charging (he's a solar battery. More sun, more power. Put him IN the sun...and he's invincible)

-Awareness (he can hear things coming from planets away, so even if Flash deceives the eye, he can't go undetected)

-A ton of other crap

Superman IS OP as fking bawls. The only way we runs into trouble is by fighting random ass, nearly invincible bad guys the writers have to toss out because HE'S TOO STRONG. There's no sense of balance. How the hell are the likes of Cyborg, Batman, Night Wing, Green Arrow...hell...how is the likes of nearly ANY other hero supposed to tango with Superman? Wonder Woman tried, and she was getting the crap beat out of her while Superman was doing his infamous "2 minute flight to the sun and back".

Yes yes yes! This is all good stuff! Honestly this is what I look for In The comment sections. Though some trolling is fun right?

Batman here first and foremost, I like supes but it depends on the artist/writer combo for me. I agree that in an official story supes would overcome any obstacle and I guess that's why everyone has a soft spot for him. He is the human spirit basically. And that's what makes him so great.

But in a what if story I gotta give it to surfer simply because he could travel back to the moment kal was on his way to earth as an infant and well stop him from becoming superman. But that's not fun I guess.

Can we please not turn this thread into another comic geek debate thread that has arguments over god mode characters that lead nowhere? Obviously this game features toned down versions of the characters so there's no use trying to bring comic book "canon" into this. It's more of a popularity contest if anything.

#87 @Chipndip - Remember Batman has defeated Superman (though people argue about it being canon/non canon.)

Batman has:
(i) He once defeated him with the aid of Green Arrow and a kryptonite tipped arrow.
(ii) Once in his Justice League Doom plan (which took down the entire Justice League.)
(iii) And a 3rd time which I can't remember how (something to do with a compressed gas powered gun that fired a kryptonite bullet, turning Superman “human” and then proceeded to beat the hell out of him and capturing him.)

Plus Superman does have a few weaknesses:
(i) Red Sun.
(ii) Kryptonite (in its different types.)
(iii) Heat vision drains his solar power super-fast. Faster than any other ability he has so he can’t spam it.
(iv) Magic – he has no “special” resistance to it, so for him it’d be like what we would class as a normal 1 Vs. 1 fight, equal playing field.
(v) No sunlight to provide him with solar power, it can be depleted overtime during an activity i.e. a fight.
(vi) Unlike other characters he doesn’t spend time harnessing his fighting skills, so will get bodied if someone uses the above combinations combined with awesome MMA skills.

#90 @DangerousBacon – I don’t know about you man but I’m enjoying this “comic geek/nerd” debate. For once people are discussing a topic without blasting/flaming each other with ridiculous insults over SFxTKN and Cashcom + any other Capcom related game or scandal etc. Plus we’re actually learning new things about characters we all grew up with, as everyone has a different piece of knowledge compared to everyone else. Doesn’t get better than this IMO.

@92

Yep. This is just fun for us. I think Superman is only rivaled in plot armor by Joker, so I think Joker is the only likely DC character that could kill Superman, admittedly I am not that experienced when it comes to DC, though. You would think Green Lantern could beat him, though.

#94 @gammabolt17 - Sure Joker could kill Superman? The Injustice: Gods Among Us comic says otherwise :-P http://sphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos...

I understand the reason for a pretty girl to do these videos but seriously watching her talk is making me want to skip all these videos

I theory,

But Superman is no stranger to time travel. He could just as easily travel time using super speed, or via Justice League technology.

Go to Zen-La and kill Norrin Radd before he becomes herald to Galactus.

Wait.....

Actually, Supes would probably save Norrin and his planet from Galactus, and Norrin would never even become the Silver Surfer! Lol.

But that's not much fun either, but it would be funny.

They're hero's right? No need to fight.
