Don't forget, Magneto's immoral. He has no problem bringing civilians in as part of his arsenal. If faced with a schoolbus full of kids or a commuter train being hurled at him, would GL take it out? I don't think so. Win goes to Magneto.

Magneto is one of the better villains since he has a sense of morals. The best villains are usually the ones that believe that they are the hero. After all, Magneto is trying to take over the world to save mutantkind from prejudice, but he doesn't go out of his way to destroy humans. While he might throw a tank at a hero, he won't throw a schoolbus full of children at a hero. Besides, it is a simple matter to catch a schoolbus or train with a GL ring. All that would do is serve as a minor distraction since GL could catch the train or bus and attack Magneto at the same time.

Exactly. CF Movie!Magneto for some really cool stunts.

If he had prior warning, Magneto would have Mystique seduce Green Lantern beforehand and inject iron into his bloodstream, which Magneto would then take and use to pwnzor GL.

Sir Ian McKellen's Magneto is the true Master of Magnetism. There's that scene in X-men when he's levitating to the top of the statue of liberty like a god, and he's looking down at everything with this mildly annoyed expression...yeah. That was awesome.

That is, of course, assuming the ring hasn't "removed" the excess iron detecting an "impurity" within the host's bloodstream...

And I think there's a bit of a reason why, even back in GL's "highly scientific" days, they never threw magnetism against him. Just isn't gonna work, too easy for GL to mop up...

Especially now, after all these current stories. GL uses less "hard light" constructs that might fall to carefully manipulated EM fields and more actual "willpower energy" that most likely can't be manipulated in that manner...

Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...

Batman has on several occasions faced the DC version of Taskmaster, Prometheus. Honestly I'd rate Prometheus and Taskmaster as equals. So... depends on the plot.

The way I see it... Joker tries to kill DP repeatedly DP laughs it off. then Joker apparently dies. Then next issues we find out Joker isn't really dead, and something silly happens.... like Hulkpool slugging it out with Eclipso-joker... Hehe.... I have no idea just how colossal a nerd you must be to actually remember Eclipso-joker. It was only in one comic book.
HAIL HYDRA!

Judge Dredd then rides in and gives them all 15 years in the Iso-cubes for being vigilantes. He doesn't like vigilantes.

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

Judge Dredd seems like what Batman would be if Batman got a Badge except for one major difference. Batman finally learned that letting certain villains like the Joker live is just asking for trouble.

Although there is a Robot Chicken skit that dealt with this. The one where Batman manipulates the system so the Joker gets the chair. Was going to post the link, but it is too violent and gory for these forums.

#1 Hulk vs Doomsday

#2 Wolverine vs Solomon Grundy

#3 Ironman vs Lex Luthor

#4 Spiderman vs The Joker

#5 Thor vs Darkseid

#6 Superman vs Galactus

#7 Batman vs Kingpin

#8 Green Lantern vs Magneto

#9 Wonder Woman vs Venom

#10 The Flash vs Dr. Doom

Of course you can have a few few cameos from the Marvel Heros to help out, but Those would be cool comics if pen very good. What do you think, and do you have your own wish vs type comics.

Looks like some good matchups, but if you seek a cats opinion i would have to go with this....

1: Hulk, if you seen the cartoon movie Hulk vs Thor, and Hulk vs Wolverine, you would see that the madder he got, the more powerful and indestructible he got...Hulk would win!

2: Wolverine, solomon grundy maybe strong and a zombie, but wolverine beat Lobo in the marvel vs dc series/crossover. His claws could eliminat all of what the monster is.

3: That would be an epic fight, they are too even, it would be a stalemate! Both are rich geniuses with a super powerful suit of armor.

4: If it begins with spiderman perusing him, it will be him, if Joker is after him, then it would be Joker.

5: Thor, in an outright battle, but if prepared darksied, thor isnt much of a strategist.

6: Galactus, Supermans powers have always been based off of, what was needed at the time, but galactus possesses the powers of the universe, he not only survived the big bang, thats where he got his powers from. Galactus would beat him, probably even absorb superman into himself.

7: Batman, kingpin is richer and has an army of thugs, but spiderman/goblin/daredevil/black cat :3 and every other person has made it into his building and got close enough to take hold of him. Kingpin is strong, but even a blind man whipped up on him. Batman would be able to slip into his lair and beat him up no sweat.

8: Green lantern! eventually magneto would run out of things to throw, Hal wouldnt. it would be more of an endurance test. Hals younger, that would be the only reason he would win.

9: Venom, because she can still be cut, most of the enemys she faces uses bludgeoning weapons and outright power. Venom has blades and webs, can move like spiderman and is still strong enough to toss a truck. Venom is fast and can wear her down, she is easily trapped by nets (old comics and super friends reference) so quick shooting and impact webs would pick apart her strengths.

10: Dr Doom, flash is a speedster with amazing abilities, but dr doom has always taken it easy on the fantastic 4 because of the invisible woman, his level of power and his tank-like structure flash couldnt penetrate. plus even to get at doom, you would have to slow down through his narrow corridors of many lethal traps. all of which are designed for a number of powers hes compensated for, hes visited by assassins often!
