    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...


I don’t get that same sense, I feel that Doomsday would have killed him and then continued his rampage with some but not extensive damage. Superman has always been a special character that can seemingly lay harness more power if the situation is dire enough, like leveling up to This is a job for Superman is a power of its own. Like when he fought pre-crisis Mongolia, he always got outclassed and smacked until the situation was so dire that had he not lost his focus he would have defeated Mongol. Has Billy ever demonstrated this capacity? Theresa sense that there’s more to this than size of fight in the dog, like Superman has an uncommonly tapped reserve that can be harnessed in the utmost emergencies. Problem is, I think that got abused for non dire situations like lifting weight of plant for 5 days that it muddies up everything. Bottom line, billy dies.
