    Quote:
    So in Iron Fist #7, Iron Fist fights a mind-controlled Shang-Chi. Interestingly, Iron Fist says that Shang-Chi is probably the only person on the planet who can beat him in a martial arts fight. At first Shang-Chi is winning but Iron Fist is holding back and Danny decides he can't hold back if he's going to survive. Then the battle becomes basically even. After the fight ends when Iron Fist ko's the mind controller, Shang-Chi, who has come to his senses and is not one for bragging, states that he fared the better of the two in the fight. The issue comes pretty close to saying Shang-Chi is the more skilled of the two.

    In Superman #30, Sinestro fights a Superman possessed by Parallax. He lures Superman/Parallax into a trap where Qward warriors knock him out by throwing their thunderbolts at him. This is a pretty poor showing for either Superman or Parallax, much less the two of them combined. Then, when Parallax leaves Superman's body, Sinestro singlehandedly fights Parallax for hours. I didn't read the previous issue so don't have the full context, but if there were no contingencies, Parallax now looks herald level.


The thunderbolts of the Thunderers have long been shown as a weakness to Superman. It was most likely a nod to that.

It's a pretty high showing for Sinestro rather than Parallax whose power levels are pretty defined as an embodiment of fear in all living being and Reiterated again here.
