So, Who Would Win: West Coast Avengers VS. Justice League Europe?

Happy Hump Day people!

So I was trying to figure out what to post today, and then it hit me that I should do another
fun version of So,Who Would Win?

Then I thought how cool would it be to see a battle of the secondary teams from each major publisher's star team. Meaning from the Avengers, you'd have the WCA, and from the Justice League, you'd have the JLE.

So, in order to have a successful battle, one must choose wisely the participants, and with a wild roster on both sides, it wasn't easy. So I just paired it down to the top 7-8 members per team, along with those members that were on said respective teams the most.

So here's the roster for the West Coast Avengers:

  • Iron Man
  • Hawkeye(Leader)
  • Wonder Man
  • Scarlet Witch
  • US Agent
  • Mockingbird
  • Hank Pym
  • Tigra

The roster for Justice League Europe:

  • Green Lantern(Hal) (Leader)
  • Flash(Wally)
  • Power Girl
  • Aquaman
  • Elongated Man
  • Crimson Fox
  • Metamorpho
  • Dr.Light

-I originally had both the Vision and The Wasp on there, but compared to US Agent and Mockingbird, they weren't on the team nearly as long as these two.

It's hard to figure out who would win for me since you have power-hitters on both sides, in the end, I'd say Hal and Wally help edge out a very narrow win.

Thoughts? Comments?

I'm trying not to be the total WCA nut that I am, but I still have to back the Avnegers for the win./ Main reason being, the Justice League has no Martian Manhunter or Captain Atom - so no specialist in strategy or leadership.

Sure their line-up may not have the powers of GL or Metamorpho, but the on-field brains of Tony, Hank and Clint would take the advantage, with Wonder Man and the Witch delivering the major blows.

Plus, couldn't Wanda just manipulate the chances of a win anyways? ;)

@Dan: But of course she could;) And then they'd have to reboot that too.

Oh that Wanda......

I think this would be an incredibly close fight, but for me, it's a fight that belongs to the JLE....barely.

I hear ya on the experience factor of Tony Hank and Clint, hell of all of them really. But I think the combined powers of just GL, Flash, Metamorpho, Power Girl, and Dr. Light along seals it for me.

Rex's powers with an GL assist takes down Tony.

Wally and Clint go back and forth before wally takes him out on a suicide attack by clint that just almost puts wally out of the fight.

This is where it gets complicated. Wanda. She's the main gun other than Tony as far as power goes. Simon's out by PG and Rex,

I believe in the end only Hal, Wally(barely) and Rex come out on top.

Btw, I was a much bigger WCA/AWC fan and for a much longer period of time than I ever was as a fan of the JLE. In the end the cast characters in the AWC side just wins out for being all the more interesting to read about.

Ooooo... this is a good one. I love both these teams! Wait- why isn't Captain Atom leading the JLE? -And USAgent leading the West Coast Team???
Anyways, let me break it down in my head, out-loud:
Crimson Fox Vs. Tigra is no contest. Tigra wins in a heartbeat.
Same with Dr.Light Vs. Mockingbird- Light plows over her. Even if Hawkeye helps...
Power Girl might have a little trouble with Scarlet Witch- but would be able to beat her before she is finished off by WonderMan, who in turn is taken out by Metamorpho and Dr. Light.
Pym backhands Light, as he is wont to do- and then gets KO'd by Elongated Man... but Tigra quickly makes a cat-toy outta him. Metamorpho could then take Iron Man out... but now he's exhausted enough to get got by THE MAN: USAgent.
So we're down to Hawkeye, US Agent, and Tigra Vs. Green Lantern, Flash, and Aquaman. HAHAHA! No contest, man. The JLE wins.
Too many powerhouses on the team. Even if Hawkeye could get a bead on Flash- and Aquaman would have trouble with Tigra... and USAgent's will was strong enough to overtake Hal and his ring... hey wait...... The more I think about it, Maybe they'd have a chan- oh, nope- Power Girl is back up. West Coast loses.

Dale Bagwell said...

So that's 3 for the JLE. Who knew?
@King: Thx for stopping by and giving us your assessment. I'd route for the WCA, but yeah, just the sheer amount of power on the JLE side just gives them enough of an edge to beat em.

Randomnerd said...

That's what I was going to say. The JLE might be lacking in the strategy department, but they sure can wreck shit up.

Marvel Comics gets "Warped"

TGIT!!!!!! So apparently the new "it" thing (well, not THAT new really) over at the "House of Ideas" is to start takin...
