So, Who Would Win?: The Sinister Six VS. The Rogues

I remember Wizard Magazine did an article on this particular match up, except it was ALL of  the  Flash's rogues versus ALL of Spider-Man's villains....and Wizard decided DC would've won it.

                                                     I disagreed then, and I still disagree now.

That's why I'm doing this my way, and pitting the definitive versions of both of villain teams against each other in a fight to the death. That's right a fight to the death.

I know the Rogues have their own code when it comes to killing, as far as they only do it when they absolutely have to, and when it's out of vengeance/revenge.

I also know the Sinister Six, any variation of the Sinister Six, is more lax about killing, and usually go for the kill against whoever it is they're after, ESPECIALLY Spider-Man.

So, that being said, I'm going to make things easy on myself and only use original members only.

Here's how they stack up:

-The (original) Sinister Six:

1). Doctor Octopus
Abilities(As Doctor Octopus/Superior Octopus):
  • Brilliant engineer and inventor
  • Genius-level intellect
  • Superb strategist
  • Wears super-strong and durable mechanical appendages
  • Telepathic control over his mechanical arms

2). The Vulture 
AbilitiesGenius electrical engineer
Electromagnetic tailored body-harness grants:
Enhanced physical attributes

3). Electro
  • Electric manipulation
  • Flight
  • Superhuman strength and speed when fully charged

4). Sandman
AbilitiesSize and mass manipulation
Earth manipulation Superhuman strength, durability and endurance
Density control
Flight (in sandstorm form)

5). Kraven the Hunter 
  • Ultra Instinct

6). Mysterio 

-The Rogues: 

1). Captain Cold
AbilitiesMaster tactician, Master Thief and strategist
Extensive knowledge of cryonics
Skilled marksman
Possesses a 'cold gun' that allows him to freeze objects to absolute zero temperatures

2). Mirror Master
AbilitiesVarious powers over mirrors, including the ability to travel through them and trap others within them.

3). Heatwave
AbilitiesPossesses a handgun sized flamethrower and knowledge of pyrotechnics and combustibles
Wears an asbestos suit that protects him from fire and heat
Pipe attached to his left arm that allows him to put out fires

4). Captain Boomerang

5). Weather Wizard
AbilitiesWeather manipulation via weather wand
Limited magnetic manipulation

6). The Trickster 
Skilled acrobat and con-artist
Above-average intelligence
Gadgets that give him the ability to perform amazing tricks like walking on air

Now of course I had to leave some members of the Rogues out of this to make it a fair fight, otherwise, The Pied Piper and The Top would be in this as well.

But again, for the sake of fairness, I chose to keep it a strictly 6-on-6 fight to the finish with no advantages in the numbers' department.

And there it is.
A fight to the bitter end between two very famous/infamous teams of supervillains, battling it out for bragging rights.

The Rogues

Who wins and why?
Let me know who you think are the last rogues standing after all's said and done.

I'm going to end up going with the Rogues just because I know more about them ... that and any team with Kraven on deserves to get their asses kicked!

Wow, really? Damn Gary what'd Kraven ever do to you? Ha ha.

I myself am still not 100% convinced the Rogues walk away from this one the winners, but here's how I'd pair them off:

-Doc Ock Vs. Captain Cold in a battle of the leaders. They both have experience fighting foes who are faster than them and have had to compensate for that. Still, considering all the tricks that Cold has with his gun, I may have to give him this one if Doc Ock can't find a way to neutralize Cold's gun fast enough.

-Electro Vs. Weather Wizard; Weather Wizard. While they both have electrical powers, WW has more weather powers at his disposal.

-Mirror Master Vs. Mysterio; Mirror Master

-Heatwave Vs. The Vulture; Heatwave

-Kraven Vs. The Trickster; I may have to give this one to Kraven despite the Trickster's arsenal of tricks.

Shit....I just argued against myself. Rogues win.
