Reply Subj: X-Men VS Avengers and the Squadron Supreme

Previous Post

X-Men (Magneto, Rogue (classic), Phoenix (pre-Dark), Iceman, Polaris, Colossus and Magik


1. Avengers (Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Vision, Hercules, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver)
2. Squadron Supreme (Hyperion, Dr. Spectrum, Power Princess, Nighthawk, Whizzer, Nuke and Thundra)

Who wins?

How is Scarlet Witch portrayed? At classic levels its one thing, or she could be one of the top dogs....

How about this when she started being a pretty respectable magic user in the 616 universe (after training with Strange), then she's a lot more impressive.

Ice Man had a stint where he was being portrayed as a true top tier as well....if its at that level, he might be really scary....

As matchups go, its more dangerous for Avengers and SS than some seem to think...

Rogue can absorb Thor or Hercules (or most of the others, but we've seen Thor absorbed before). Magneto may lose head to head against Thor, but should be the favorite against most members of either team. Phoenix is at least an even match for anyone on either of the other teams as well.


Magneto loses to Thor in a close one

Hercules gets absorbed by Rogue

Hulk owns Colossus, then fights Rogue with Hercules' strength and durability

Polaris loses to Iron Man

SW, Quicksilver, and Vision engage Magik, Phoenix, and Iceman, and Phoenix ends it quickly

Round 2

Rogue goes down as her absorption wears off

Thor fights Phoenix

Iron Man engages Magik and Iceman

Once Hulk is free Avengers win, but I could see this going the other way depending on matchups

Squadron Supreme
Magneto beats Spectrum based on skill
Thundra loses to Colossus
Magik vs. Whizzer could go either way
Rogue absorbs Power Princess
Phoenix beats Hyperion
Iceman beats Nighthawk
Polaris vs. Nuke (I don't remember how impressive Nuke was, so I'll say this goes on a little)

Sorry, but this one is an Xmen win handily IMO. I'm assuming Rogue will use absorption, and I may honestly be underrating Zarda (I'm probably a bit biased based on her showings prior to the early 2000's not being as impressive as her showings in Exiles and more recently), but Magneto and Phoenix are top dogs here IMO, and that matters.
