Based on the comments in the battle of the week and the 'size of fight in the dog' discussion, I thought this would be an interesting topic.

In general, I think Captain Marvel (Billy) would have performed almost exactly like Superman did in the fight with Death of Superman, up to the very end, where he would have been unconscious, and Doomsday would still be alive, but in bad enough shape that almost any relatively powerful guy could finish him.

It goes to the 'size of the fight in the dog', as this was Superman's ultimate Rocky Balboa moment, and I don't think Billy has the level of mental toughness Superman does....I think he could have fought about as well, but at the end of the day, Supes willpower had DD dead and left him dying.

Oddly enough, going down easier might mean that Marvel would have survived...

Thoughts?


Make this in Billy's home town and put his loved ones in danger (they die if he loses) and I'd say Billy would give it his all to win just as Superman did. And Billy would have died, just as Superman did. But at least Doomsday would be dead too. See, the thing about the Death of Superman was that Clark was highly motivated to win. To be fair to Billy, he'd need to be put in a situation where he'd be highly motivated to win as well.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
