Can Wonder Woman's skill and impressive physicals allow her to defeat the powerful Sinestro in combat? According to the Comic Vine community, yes, she totally can and would. Out of 413 votes, 53% thought Diana would knock Thaal's lights out. A respectable 41% thought Sinestro would stand victorious and 6% believe the fight is just too close to call.

Despite losing the poll, Sinestro is by no means a character anyone should underestimate. He's recently endured a planet destroying attack and has obliterated Mongul II in an absolutely vicious fight. His power ring offers a wide array of dangerous attacks, too. From blasts to blunt force, there's a massive amount of attacks the alien can unleash during his battle with the amazon. However, Wonder Woman has the raw speed and sheer might to contend and even overcome the wealthy amount of variety Thaal's ring has to offer -- that's not even factoring in her lasso and bracelets either. Sinestro is an incredibly tough fellow and he won't be easy to drop, but it's clear the majority of Viners think she has what it takes to knock him out. Let's check out one standout argument for Diana and see what a Comic Vine staff writer has to say about this one.

Viner Argument of the Week for Wonder Woman is by RazzaTazz

"Wonder Woman might have the best collection of power items in the DC Universe. And while Sinestro is skilled with the power ring, she is equally ingenious with her combat ability and powers. Even without powers she is a hand to hand combatant at par with Batman, and add in the super abilities and she stands almost equal to Superman. I suppose its not really relevant to the discussion, but it is likely that her willpower is even stronger than Sinestro, as she held out against death at the hands of Neron for an unexpectedly long time. What this comes down to is that Wonder Woman only needs to get the lasso around any part of his body and he is done."

Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder, Comic Vine writer

"This is another neck-and-neck match. I mean Wonder Woman sees Sinestro and what's she going to do but charge? But this plays right into Thaal's hands, his mind racing at a mile a minute against this brutish woman and grabbing her in a terrifying, yellow light construct, hurling her into orbit and scoffing.

Sinestro doesn't quite know who he's dealing with, however, this isn't some lumbering, knuckle-dragging oaf, but an Amazon who knows how to reverse direction and charge back at him. Sinestro barely has time to raise a barrier before Wonder Woman collides with him, sending them both packing through the buildings. This is where Diana has an advantage as Sinestro can't and won't sacrifice himself to deal damage, but he still manages to blast her off with a pure power blast. He loses sight of her, though, but she's wounded. He charges his ring and turns just in time to see Wonder Woman smash up through the floor. He hits her with a series of bolts, but she deflects them with her bracers. He conjures the greatest horrors of the cosmos he can imagine, but Diana has faced horrors of mythic proportion that a mortal mind can't imagine and lassos Sinestro in one quick motion.

"Tell me...what do YOU fear?"

"Defeat...my will crushed..."

"It's time you faced it, then."

One punch later, and Sinestro is out, Diana leaving him for Hal to take him to a sciencell."

Last but not least, here's a tease for the next battle. Can you guess who both characters are before it's revealed on Monday? Hint: the left image is obviously Galactus.

First person to accurately guess both characters gets an e-high five! Oooo! Ahhhh! But really, they'll get a mention in Monday's feature.

Knew Wondy would get the win

#4 Edited by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

Its green arrow vs ?????

Looks like the second character has machine gun gauntlets unless those are close ups on guns in his hands

My guess might be Jason Todd

#5 Edited by AllStarSuperman (21843 posts) - - Show Bio

@degraaf: i dont think its jason tood they already used him in a fight. it could maybe be Deadshot vs Green Arrow

EDIT: they already used Deadshot as well, idk

#6 Edited by SavageDragon (2252 posts) - - Show Bio

I would go WW, but in a brutal close fight.

#7 Posted by G_Money_Christmas (883 posts) - - Show Bio

I knew Wonder Woman would take him. I know New 52 Green Arrow, not sure about the other guy. It's almost completely blacked out.

#8 Posted by nickzambuto (13658 posts) - - Show Bio

The CitizenBane trick says "Clintvsnowayyou." I honestly have no idea who the second character can be, and tbh I feel k4 might be tricking us, because to me that looks more like Green Arrow for whatever reason.

It's obviously Green Arrow vs Vague Amorphous Blob.

Saving Ninjak for when he has more feats. Hopefully he'll get a decent amount in Unity. Characters like Bloodshot and X-O can appear at any time, though...

Hopefully he'll be rocking out in Unity. Really want him to get his own series especially after I checked out the awesome classic one.

New 52 Green Arrow vs...I have no idea who it is. But this week's battle was a nice turn out I thought.

#15 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

I think WW would win, like Razza said. She's gone toe to toe with Superman, which not many can do lol. Sinestro is just an dark Hal Jordan at the end of the day(not literally but you know what I mean), he can be broken.

#16 Posted by TheTrueBarryAllen (5194 posts) - - Show Bio

It's obviously Green Arrow vs Vague Amorphous Blob.

I'm dying. This is hilarious.

Hawkeye vs ???? Not sure

#18 Edited by JamDamage (1114 posts) - - Show Bio


I don't agree with this win being WW not Sinestro. I always thought the Lanterns are watered down in terms of powers. They basically have a wish granting ring. They can make anything think of. Plus, couldn't Sinestro just grab Wonder Woman and fly into space at a speed to quick for her to react to and just dump her in space where she can't breathe? Sure it's not reality, but in reality wouldn't a good enough Green Lantern or Sinestro Corp member be to beat just about anyone??? IT'S MAKES ANYTHING YOU THINK OF!!!!

He is getting his own series, but it's been pushed back. One day...

k4tz, it wasn't totally clear to me where you stand on this fight. I assume you agree with the poll?

#25 Posted by fingernail9 (27 posts) - - Show Bio

Hands down Wondy girl, but she'd lose an arm.

#26 Posted by EvilPenguin543 (178 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know why, but I have a feeling the character on the right is Rocket Raccoon. So I'm gonna say Green Arrow vs. Rocket Raccoon.

#27 Edited by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Woohoo wtg Wonder Woman!

#28 Posted by patrat18 (9756 posts) - - Show Bio

Arrow vs ?

#29 Posted by LordRequiem (1315 posts) - - Show Bio

Of course if it based on current events then Sinestro would wipe the floor with her, but we shan't go into that.

Green Arrow versus Batman

#31 Posted by Grimoire (543 posts) - - Show Bio

WW would take the win imo. Glad I voted for her.

#32 Edited by WaveMotionCannon (5409 posts) - - Show Bio

Sinestro should have won this. He's the best lantern period. His versatility should allow him to create something to defeat WW.

Green Arrow vs. Hawkeye

Deathstroke vs. Deadpool

The Flash vs. Quicksilver

The Joker vs. Green Goblin

Catwoman vs. Black Cat

Alan Scott vs. Jay Garrick

Aquaman vs. Namor

Dog Welder vs. Squirrel Girl

Also the picture looks like Green Arrow and either Cyborg or Rocket Raccoon

Green arrow vs what appears to be a darkened alley.

It's obviously Green Arrow vs Vague Amorphous Blob.

It all comes down to if Vague Amorphous Blob gets prep time or not. Cause we know what VAB can do with prep.

#37 Posted by XImpossibruX (5174 posts) - - Show Bio

Vague Amorphous Blob should become a thing.

Glad Dianna won. It just seemed like the logical choice. Starting distance was way too close for Sinestro.
