Kryptonians: Power Girl, Superboy, Supergirl, Superman

vs

Lanterns: Guy Gardner, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner

Random encounter, in-character. Pre-52 for everyone. GLs start with shields on and ready for the fight.

Who ends still standing?

I want to say the kryptonians pull off the win, but I'm not 100% certain. Others probably have waaay better input that me of course, but that's just my initial gut reaction. It would be an awesome fight though.

Kryptonite.

Lots and lots of Kryptonite

Has nothing to do with the fight, really.

That said, I think the Lanterns take this. Kyle is easily the most powerful here. He literally contained Ultraman (superman's equal) for hours in a construct. I'd take any of the other lanterns against any of the other kryptonians, too.

@dratini1331: Hal gets a little more wanking from the old timers like Johns but Kyle has the best consistent feats.

That's a whole other argument, and it's debatable. Kyle has some nice feats, but so does Hal.

Rapiers! But, I should warn my opponent... I've been fencing for around 15 years... so, basically, he's screwed! =)

@willpayton: Posting a glorified popularity contest of a thread doesn't mean much. Kyle has outperformed almost anything Kyle can show besides maybe Hal's defeating of Krona.

Kryptonians via speed. I think they're broken Lantern constructs before also. Can someone clarify?

Please! Kyle kicks Kyle's ass every time.

Very very tough fight. It could go either way truthfully.

Unless the kryptos instantly blitz, the lanterns can make kryptonite radiation with their rings

All Kryptonians are not the same.

No they cant. Pre-Crisis Hal could do it, not not modern Lanterns.

Lanterns can worm hole them away if they don't speed blitz

Edit: oh wait, all you said was earth lanterns so that means white lantern Kyle rayner

True. I don't even consider Connor Kryptonian. The other three should be roughly the same with Superman being a tad higher in stats obviously.

Going with the GLs. I feel like Superboy is the weak link here that would make his team off balance.

@sheenlantern: Green Lanterns can't make Kryptonite. Not since Pre-crisis.

@dredeuced: I think you mean that they've not been shown to do it.

Kryptonians

@sheenlantern: Yes? Which means they can't? I mean, I've not shown that I can blow up mercury with a fart so chances are I can't. Green Lanterns have fought off pissed off Kryptonians enough times(Superman gets mind controlled every other year) to deduce that they can't create kryptonite or that they wouldn't think to do it in a fight.

Interesting, is that canon? I've never seen a GL do that post-Crisis.

#36 Edited by Dredeuced (5543 posts) - - Show Bio

@willpayton: Man of Tomorrow is definitely canon, I remember it was part of the DC One Million series where Superman was dealing with Kal Kent. It's the one where he finds future Platinum along with the deceased metal men.

That said, it seems only Kyle can because the formula was ripped from Supes' mind, but that's all that's needed. Kyle could possibly solo if you combine the kryptonite feats with his other feats like containing ultraman for hours without breaking a sweat or blowing up planets to spite Hal.
