"Manhattan, i am not quite sure but i recall that Proteus has a weakness towards metal that can be exploited. "
How would Manhattan know that. Proteus can still attack his mind with telepathy. This fight isn't cut and dry like people try to make it.
" Dr Manhatten for the win.His powers seem to be greater in scope (area of effect etc) and his mind now appear to be more than human, after all he sees time in a very different way. "Dr. M's power is NOT greater is scope than Proteus.
"@Nerx said:Dr. Manhattan would have probably seen into his own future and saw himself pulling a huge metal structure from out the ground (like he created on Mars) in order to beat Proteus. If thats really a weakness of his. But other than that Proteus should win this, he has no body for Manhattan to explode. Unless some how Manhattan's energy manipulation allows him to effect Psionic energy (which I'm not sure, and deosn't seem possable to me).

Not enough feats to show DrM could disintegrate Proteus to nothingness, and also, DrM has shown an ability to become confused, and hence`forth may be fully susecptable to psionic/mind attacks. Proteus here turns DrM's mind to jelly, or possesses him - Prot FTW
Proteus is full pledged Reality Warper and Mind Possessor.
Manhatten is a sub-molecular air bender. And is closer similar to New-Son Gambit than Proteus. Proteus wins by reality warp or mind possession.
If Magneto can defeat Proteus.... Magneto can defeat Dr. Manhattan with less effort.
