The Sentry VS. Supreme


Well today's the final "So, Who Would Win?"-themed post for this week. Hope you've been enjoying the match-ups so far.

Today I'm closing out on match up between two Superman iterations, the Sentry and Supreme.

On one hand, you have the Sentry the man with the power of a billion exploding suns, a superman analogue that has a serious dark side and history of mental instability thanks to sharing personality space with his completely evil opposite, the Void.

On the other, is Supreme, he's what you'd imagine an old, bitter, and cantankerous Superman to be like, a real jerkish asshole with no qualms about killing.

Also of note, The sentry is supposed to be REALLY, REALLY strong. So strong he had no problems going toe to toe with the Hulk,

whooped on Thor easily enough,

and even showed no signs of difficulty killing a god, when he killed Ares, the god of war during Siege.

So the Sentry has vast powers thanks to being both the Sentry and the Void.

Supreme, depending on what version you're talking about, is also super-strong and powerful, especially if he's the Alan Moore version. The Alan Moore version of Supreme, is basically written to be on the same scale of powers as the old Silver Age Superman at his peak.
Add in this Supremium stuff, a radioactive mineral that alters reality and that gives Supreme his powers and alter, and you're starting to see just how chaotic and destructive this battle will be.

That being said, let's compare the two using their respective stats shall we?

The Sentry:

Superhuman Strength, Speed & Stamina
• Healing Factor
• Light Manipulation
• Nigh Invulnerability
• Flight
• Enhanced senses
• Matter Transmutation
• Intangibility


  • Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, breath, and vision
  • Molecular adaptation to any threat
  • Flight

As for a scenario in which these two fight, shouldn't be a problem conceiving a confrontation between the two of them.

Chalk it up once again, to the timeless cliche of "Superhero misunderstanding gone bad", and go from there.

As the battle wears on, the Sentry notices he's having more difficulty than usual, putting Supreme down, despite his vast power.
That's when things get ramped up and the Void comes out to play.....


The Sentry



Who wins and why?
Let me know who you think would be the last ubermench standing after this one's all said and done in the comments' section.

That's all for this week, have a good weekend people....

So, Who Would Win?: The Great Lakes Avengers VS. The Freak Force

Ahh the Great Lakes Avengers....I don't know if they were meant to be created as an intended MU companion to the Giffen/DeMatteis JLI, but that's what it feels like with the Great Lakes Avengers.

Created by John Byrne, and debuting in West Coast Avengers#46(1989), The Great Lakes Avengers seem to be the epitome of comedic relief, and based of their history of ever changing names and lack of respect form the rest of the proper MU, that doesn't look to change anytime soon.

Likewise, Image Comics' Freak Force, created by Erik Larsen, and debuting in Savage Dragon#4(1992) is another motley crew of super-powered individuals that were brought to together for a purpose of joining a special division of the Chicago police department, only for it all to go bust, and the team forced to become bounty hunters.

Now let's check out all of who's going to be in this one, as we check out the rosters for each respective group.


-Mr. Immortal
AbilitiesHighly skilled acrobat and athlete
Immortality via resurrection
AbilitiesExcellent hand to hand combatant
Flat body
Origami shape-shifting
-Big Bertha
AbilitiesSkilled aircraft pilot
Superhuman strength and durability
Ability to alter size and mass of her body and leap great distances
Team affiliationsGreat Lakes Avengers
AbilitiesPortal generation
Flight via skis
Ability to bring souls to the afterlife
-Dinah Soar
AbilitiesFlight via razor-tipped wings
Limited sonic powers
Emphatic calming

Freak Force:

AbilitiesSuperhuman strength, agility, stamina and endurance
Regenerative powers
Telescopic/Microscopic/Night vision
Decreased aging
Flight via aid of unpleasant drug
Cyborg limbs can stretch, and grow many types of guns and weaponry

AbilitiesHer body thorns and teeth can cause much damage. Bulletproof, less so on palms and stomach. Superhuman agility, strength and senses.

AbilitiesUses variety of trick darts. Skilled martial artist and gymnast.
Electricity Control
Unarmed Combat

-Mighty Man
Super Speed
Super Strength

Super Speed
Super Strength
Unarmed Combat

Unarmed Combat

Damn..just right off the bat it looks like Freak Force has the edge in this, with superior numbers and powers. Even throwing in Squirrel Girl might not help the GLA's odds much.
The scenario for why these two teams will duke it out is the simple and very cliched, mutual super-hero misunderstandings that are still a hallmark of the big two, as well as in any other superhero publishing company.

Let's say Freak Force are still bounty hunters and someone with a lot of money has put nice-sized bounty of a group of super-powered freaks that just so happen to look A LOT like the GLA, and the GLA don't know about this little development at all.

So, Who Would Win?: The Guardians of the Galaxy VS. Darkseid

That's right folks, if they were good enough for Thanos, they're good enough to give Darkseid a try, as I pit the GoTG against the ruling dictator of Apokolips, Darkseid.

Now sure, you're going to say, "Hey, sure they fought Thanos before in the comics, and are about to do it again in the movies too, but this is Darkseid we're talking about here."

And you're right, Darkseid don't play. And neither will he this time either when faced with what he'd consider "mere pests."

Let's take a quick look at the GoTG roster he'd be facing, shall we?

So, Who Would Win?: The Fantastic Four VS. The Red Skull

What's up people?

Well, the main two big announcements news-wise to come out of this past weekend, is the death of the man who revitalized and re-defined the Zombie movie genre himself, legendary writer and director, George A. Romero and the reveal of the brand new 13th incarnation of Doctor Who.....and she's a woman....

George A. Romero died quietly in his home after, according to his longtime friend and production partner, Peter Grunwald, "A brief, but aggressive bout with lung cancer." Damn, cancer again...and yet another reminder that 2017 gives zero fucks about not taking your beloved entertainment icons.

Romero was 77.

Out of all his classics, I do believe I enjoyed 1981's  Freakshow and 2005's Dawn of the Dead myself.

The new 13th incarnation of the Doctor, of the longtime running British sci-fi series Doctor Who, has just been revealed and she's a woman.

There have been rumors floating around for sometime now, that the next actor to play the Doctor would be a woman, and sho' 'nuff, she is.

Well-known BBC actress Jodie Whittaker is set to become the new Doctor Who for the 2018 season.
And let the fanboy bitching and trolling begin.....NOW......

Alright, so since I've got some family drama I have to deal with all last week, and probably the rest of this week too, I figured I'd do a theme week this week, posting 4 fantasy warfare matches from my So, Who Would Win? column.

Day 1 is all about pitting the Fantastic Four against the inhuman face of the Nazis in the marvel Universe, the Red Skull.

I just so happened to get this idea from some art John Byrne did, where he drew the original X-Men fighting it out with a Cosmic Cube-holding Red Skull. Looked like a really good match up to me, so I thought what if I replaced the FF with the X-Men instead?

Now obviously the Red Skull should be at a bit of a disadvantage in the super powers department and the smarts department since well duh, Reed.

But....what if I evened things up by either giving the skull a cosmic cube or even his mental powers received after splicing Professor X's mutant brain to his. That would surely make things a bit more fair right?

Fuck it, let's give the skull his favorite toy, the cosmic cube and see how the FF deal with dem apples....
