So, Who Would Win?: The Legion of Monsters VS. The Creature Commandos


Another week, another edition of So Who Would Win?
This week in honor of Halloween, I decided to go with a Halloween theme. And what's Halloween without monsters right?

This week I picked teams of monsters from both companies, Marvel and DC, and this is what I came up with; The Legion of Monsters from Marvel, and  The Creature Commandos from DC.


The Legion Of Monsters:


The Creature Commandos:

So, Who Would Win? And why?
As always, leave your picks in the comments' section.

That's me for this week.
Happy Halloween and have a great weekend.

I'm gonna have to go for a write-in vote to win this one (because I just HAVE to be difficult): Marv Wolfman, and Gene Colan's Night Force! Dealing with the supernatural is just what they do.

True Story; For some reason I looked up the name Night Force, mistakenly thinking them to be the Creature Commandos.

I don't really see a NF revival in the NU52 anytime son. JLDark already fills that niche in their universe. But never say never apparently.

You know, it's odd... I never cared much for The Creature Commandos... and I've NEVER liked Frankenstein's Monster as a comic-book-character in any super-hero type comic (if it's specifically supposed to be him or not). It just doesn't fit- awkwardly stands out to me. Whereas vampires and werewolves- I'm fine with in most cases. Like Morbius, and Werefolf By Night are awesome... but if they're up against Dracula and The Wolf Man- I'd think that's lame.
I dunno- it's weird. Superhero comics and classic literature just don't mix for me. Probably why I was never a fan of The League.

I can't say any of the horror stuff was my cup of tea either. while I don't mind going outside of the mainstream to expand my horizons, I usually retain interest in the superhero genre.
It wasn't until my teens and early 20's that went outside my comfort zone.
I had gotten some old issues of Tomb of Dracula, Man-Thing, and Werewolf by Night, bored. With the exception of some of the Man-Thing issues of course.
Otherwise, meh.

i'm completely clueless about this match up but i just wanted to say that Marvel Premier issue is a good read it was written by Bill Mantlo.

Dale Bagwell said...

@Shlomo: It's basically a battle of monster teams; one's a very loose-knit team of various Marvel monsters, the other is a team of man-made monster/human hybrids crated during WW2...or at least that's when they first showed up.
The CC have sprung up over the years in different iterations.

So Stephen Hawkins died last night......

Sure I could go on about how brave he was in spite of his massive disability, or how smart he was, or how inspirational, but Nawww. Let th...
