  • Arena: an abandoned city with plenty of metal objects
  • Doom has found a way to shield him and Magneto from the Omega Effect. Darkseid can't disintegrate or teleport them, but he can still use them as energy blasts.
  • No backup for either side
  • Magneto and Darkseid are at full power
  • Doom is at "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" levels (y'know, when he effortlessly wiped the floor with the Avengers and the Fantastic 4? Yes, including the Hulk)
  • No prep time

Who will win? DISCUSS!

I think Darkseid would win in a Random Encounter... Mags and Doom will make it interesting though.

Darkseid at full power!? He curbstomps.

#4 Posted by MisterWhisper (1920 posts) - - Show Bio

Without prep they just get overpowered.

Even with it, it would be a bad fight, honestly Magneto is not going to help a lot. (Not often you can say that)

doom and magneto could win.

Classic Magneto is a hard ass, recently he has seemed kind of nerfed. In open random combat, I would take Classic Magneto over Doom though Doom's recent increased magical powers would make it interesting.

The only way the pair could win is with prep.

Random encounter: Darkseid

Prep: Team

@misterwhisper: Magneto is a lot more powerful than the cartoons and movies show him.

Magneto solos!

Hehe, just kidding, the team gets wrecked.

Magneto is a powerful character, rarely written to his limits (Like Iceman or Wally West). Doom tanked attacks from the mad celestials. The guy is the living embodiment of willpower. PC Darkseid would win against the team with no prep. Regular Darkseid (jobber) would lose. Team with prep wins.

Regular Darkseid is far from a jobber.

Hardly. Regular Darkseid is a joke. Theres supposed to be no difference between PC and Current but it's the same difference as golden age supes vs silver age supes. "Current Darkseid" was manhandled by Superman. Manhandled by Doomsday (then retconned to be a DS Clone) and gained a little respect in Final Crisis. He's done nothing noteworthy over the last few years and it's a shame. Kirby Darkseid was by far the most potent followed by PC Darkseid then the amped versions (because he's amped..) with Current following sadly behind as mere shadow of past greatness.

So losing to Superman and Doomsday makes him a jobber? The same guy whose powers are too much for Goldstar. The same guy who took on the Darkstars and embarrassed them. The same guy who survived Apokolips being destroyed. The same guy who no-sold a punch from Supergirl. The same guy who vaporized a guy who pwned Orion and Lightray. Yeah, what a loser. I mean instead of creating the post-crisis Parasite he should go back to losing to Firestorm and doing jack squat like in Kirby's run.

The guy thats supposed to represent, literally, all evil in the universe. The character that is a new god and whos power could affect anyone in existence.. Gets KO'd by a less that powerful Clark Kent, killed by being shot from a Batman (supposed clone), manhandled fist to fist with a brute monster (stupid Darkseid idea). Yes.. that is when your defeats are for the sake of plot and you become a joke of your origin. Darkseid idea was extremely powerful character, LAUGHING at Superman and Justice League attacks, and having to be defeated by CIS or Plot/circumstances. "Regular" Darkseid is nothing compared to him. So yes. Jobber. It would be like ODIN losing to Captain America or Ironman... Thanos without an amp from Death or powerful artifact has never eclipsed PC or Kirby Darkseid powerwise. Odin's a closer reference to it.

How about this. Kirby Darkseid basically IS PreCrisis Darkseid. He literally toyed with PC Superboy and Supergirl like ants. Both of whom are more powerful than current or recent Superman. SA Superman never went head to head but we know of his "fear" of Darkseid. SA Superman was manhandled by PC Mongul.. Who is nothing compared to PC Darkseid feat wise in any way (including strength). Current or "recent" Darkseid has been bloodied by Superman and the less than impressive Justice League (based off of his power). I get what you're saying. I'm merely rejecting it due to the fact there is a HUGE difference between "Darkseid" and "PC" or "Kirby" Darkseid, hence the qualifier. Current is a jobber. DC tried to mend that wound a bit with the "Avatar" idea.

Can't argue with such well researched and accurate facts.

@amazingwebhead:

Umm, yeah. I have been reading comics for close to 30 years, I know that.

He still just gets overpowered by Darkseid.
