Magneto should take it. WWH had enhancements of his normal abilities, namely strength, durability, healing, etc. These power sets notably lack both real projection ability (Hulk throw debris!) as well as mobility in terms of flying, etc (Hulk big jump!)

So what WWH really had going for him was major foes making stupid, stupid decisions. (Citation: Doctor Strange). Several heroes that WWH took out would be capable of using their abilities to win fights without letting WWH get near them. And yet, thanks to plot armor, it comes down to a punching contest.

So on paper, I favor Magneto by a large margin (though I'm not sure Fatal Attractions was his highest power level - didn't he have Exodus boosting him?). Magneto can fly, keep Hulk away from him, or hell, just LIFT Hulk 10 feet off the ground and he has zero leverage or moving ability. At that point Magneto can leisurely move him into a volcano or a one-way trip to deep space. Or just create the world's largest ninja blender. It doesn't really matter, Hulk has zero counters.

All that said, any comic written with this fight would have WWH win this in a heartbeat. Too much WWH plot armor.

    This is the most powerful incarnation of Magneto, which is probably when he set off the worldwide EMP wave in the classic Fatal Attractions storyline. Mags can also do stuff like control blood flow to the brain and effect iron in people's bloodstream, can he not? I think that Mags can take this one. Speaking of, did the two of them encounter each other during World War Hulk? Or was Mags not part of the X-team back then? Thanks. Happy Holidays.
