ageofstark asked: Who would win in a battle? Superman or Captain America?
I’m gonna go with what I think is probably the controversial answer and say Captain America. The fight would be extremely close and last for ages. But I think Cap would ultimately be standing.
The reason I think this essentially comes down to three things:
1. Hand to hand: Cap is by far the superior hand to hand fighter and he has the added Shield, which is an extremely important defensive tactic. Yes, Superman has super strength and super boners and what not, but Cap has the Shield. If that shit is in front of Cap, ain’t nothing happening to him. That’s just the bottom line.
2. Intellect: Cap is smarter than Superman. Cap is a tactical genius and has superior intellect. Fighting isn’t just about brute force, it’s also about outsmarting them, being smarter than your opponent not just being stronger or faster. We are talking battle plans. We are talking maneuvers. Cap could easily outsmart Superman and depending on how long the fight last, could work with factors to turn the whole thing to his advantage.
3. Healing: Cap has accelerated healing. Makes putting him down for the count particularly vexing.
It would not be an easy fight and I think a lot of this is dependent on factors that depend on the writer or scenario. I mean, does Cap have access to Kryptonite? Who has home field advantage? Can they bring friends (because Cap has more)? Why are they fighting? Because if it’s for freedom, Cap has righteousness on his side.
THIS QUESTION MAKES ME SO ANGRY. FIRSTLY BECAUSE I’M A CONTRARIAN AND SO I MUST DISAGREE WITH SPUZZ (DUH) BUT SECOND BECAUSE LET US BE REAL HERE, GUYS, SUPERMAN AND CAPTAIN AMERICA WOULD NEVER GET IN A FIGHT. IF THEY CAME UPON EACH OTHER UPON THE FIELD OF BATTLE, THEY WOULD TALK IT OUT AND DECIDE THEY ACTUALLY HAVE SIMILAR OPINIONS ABOUT THE MEANING OF LIFE AND SHAKE HANDS AND GO FOR A BEER. CAP IS A WORKING CLASS HERO. SUPES IS A WORKING CLASS HERO. CAP IS THE EMBODIMENT OF THE AMERICAN IDEAL. SUPES IS THE EMBODIMENT OF THE AMERICAN IDEAL. THEY ARE BASICALLY MADE TO BE FRIENDS.
that said, superman would totally win, i mean come on. (unless cap had kryptonite)
