    Orion vs. Captain Marvel (Billy Batson)

Cap wins due to the Wisdom of Solomon telling him how to do it. But it's a close fight. Wisdom trumps skill when you have the power to do something about it.

    Superboy Prime vs. Amazo (Justice League Unlimited cartoon version)

Superboy Prime wins. It took nearly every hero to beat Prime. Amazo may have the powers of the entire Justice League, but that's small fry compared to what Prime went up against.

    Apollo (of the Authority) vs. Sub-Mariner (wet)

Apollo is pathetically underpowered. Sub-Mariner wins without much of an effort.

    Cheetah vs. Wolverine

Cheetah has nearly beaten Wonder Woman on numerous occasions. Wolverine wouldn't last for very long before he's turned into mince meat.

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?
