Look Back In Horror: 90s Comic Mags Part 3
Our final dive into the pit of 90s comics is also from Wizard #66, an article inspired by the then-new Marvel/DC “Access” crossovers. Wizard asked the pros who they thought would win various hero fights, and put it all together. I’ll give my wholly-unwanted opinions below. Feel free to disagree violently with me and tell me how wrong I am in reply. ;)
Wolverine vs Lobo: I’m with Giffen on this one. Lobo is a genocidal force of nature. Wolverine is a mutated human with sharp claws. Squish. Sorry Wolvie, I like you more than Lobo…
Captain America vs Batman: It’s so close, the winner would be whoever gets the drop on the other first. I can’t choose either way.
Superman vs Hulk: Superman would take Hulk down in record time. Sorry Hulk, I liked you when Peter David wrote you.
Hawkeye vs Green Arrow: Ollie smacks Clint down handily. I will not be swayed on this, GA is the man.
Quicksilver vs Flash: Wally wins, in the superhero equivalent of a squash match. What else do you expect from the awesomest speedster ever? ^_^
Daredevil vs Batman: The Bat wins. Full stop. Next?
She-Hulk vs Wonder Woman: Sorry Jen, Diana would totally smash you. I liked you when Byrne wrote you, but I didn’t like Wondy when he wrote her. Go figure…
Silver Surfer vs Green Lantern: Power cosmic takes down green energy. Silver Surfer is basically a space god. Sorry, Kyle.
Aquaman vs Namor: I like them both, and they’re both a close match power-wise, so I don’t even know who would win.
Superman vs Thor: Superman is weak against magic. Thor is a God who IS magic. How do *you* think that will turn out?
That’s it for my 90s comic mags, I’ll have to scrounge some more from the quarter bins to make fun of soon.
