It has come to it (again?). Like them or not, they're the close to the very foundations of the superhero concept. The Trinity of Trinities in pitched combat to determine who is mightier: themselves or the replica of themselves, or the replica of the replica of themselves? (I'll do a second thread for that if this gets good).

The talent: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman

Wil be facing:

Apollo
Midnighter
Giggity...er, I mean Glory

PLUS

and now: here's something I hope you'll really enjoy

While Image vs DC certainly isn't new, let me know if this exact thread exists. Battles will be both one-on-one and team-based. Pre-New 52 for all.

Round 1: In character (whether moral-less or not). One-on-one/two

Round 2: Morals off. Bloodlusted. One-on-one/two.

Round 3: Morals off. Bloodlusted. Team DC vs Team Image, but no speedblitz. I repeat, the powerhouses will not speedbliz.

Setting:

Superman vs Apollo: a large metropolitan city at 12 pm, completely abandoned with all the buildings, loci, and objecta one would expect in a city. No BFR, but buildings are subject to damage.

Batman vs Midnighter: an abandoned warehouse with equal parts lit and dark. Two stories, with a perimeter landing between the first and second story. "Garygoyles" between ceiling and secind floor. Several large wooden crates and moving equipment littered throughout. (Scenario sounds pro-Batman, but I'm accounting for M's metahuman abilities).

Wonder Woman vs Glory and Zealot: outside the crumbling Greek panthenon along a shore consisting of a ground level, a wide flight of stairs, the panthenon itself and sourrounding grassy hills. Lit by several flaming torches and puddles. Ancient weapons are scattered throughout, weapons will not break with use. No BFR, but structures subject to damage. Glory and Zealot start with spartan shields.

Team DC vs Team Image: the same metropolitan city from Superman/Apollo, just after dusk: fairly bright sun but dark in some areas. Puddles everywhere. Batman and Midnighter start on a roof top. WW, Glory and Zealot start on the ground.

Prep and Equipment:

Superman vs Apollo: No equipment, of course. Knowledge based on experience from crossovers for rounds 1 and 2. Will recieve what Batman/Midnighter read on ComicVine as well in round 3 (see below).

Batman vs Midnighter: Standard gear shown on a regular basis, including sonics and explosives. (I don't know Midnighter's standard, so untill someone tells me assume two silenced glock 9s with four clips of armor piercing rounds plus whatever he usually has). Batman is given 10 minutes to read Midnighter's ComicVine entry and Midnighter is given 5 to read Batman's for rounds 1 and 2. Knowledge from previous experience for both fighters, plus Vine information in all three rounds.

Wonder Woman vs Glory and Zealot: Standard gear (lasso and bracelets for WW, Glory and Zealot start with Spartan shields) in round 1 and 2. Knowledge based on previous experience. Will recieve what Batman/Midnighter read on ComicVine in round 3 (see above).

Team DC vs Team Image: Batman is given 20 minutes to read Team Image's and Midnighter is given 10 to read Team DC's ComicVine entries. Wonder Woman has her magic sword, and Glory has her magical sword while Zealot has an indestructible Kherubian sword. Members of each team will recieve what Batman/Midnighter read, respectively, plus knowledge from past experiences.

Long OP, I know, but I wanted it to be specific. Scans are a must, of course. Who triumphs? The golden poster-children or their badass counterparts? Have at it!

Wonderwoman wins against her opponent ... I don't know enough about the others to determine a winner.

@TAneT62: Im most interested in Wonder Woman vs Glory

Superman outperforms Apollo. Midnighter cripples Batman. I don't know Glory well enough to comment. I would have taken Majestic as the Superman analogue, but Apollo and Midnighter are a team so I guess I understand your choice.

No idea who Glory is. Wonder Woman's Wildstorm analogue is supposed to be Zealot.

I chose Glory only because she's also a magic-influenced Amazon. I'll change it to Zealot and Glory, because to my understanding niether of them are in WW's strength range but both have magic/tech.

Midnighter destroys Batman, Superman defeats Apollo after a decent battle... I don't know enough about the women to make an educated guess.

Cool battle btw

I know this reply is totally late, was just poking around Midnighter's page and saw this... but I agree that Midnighter slaughters Batman, Apollo loses to Superman but it's close for a while until Superman just outlasts him and Apollo drains his solar charge, and I'd probably have to hand the fight of the ladies to Wonder Woman, even though 2 against one... But admittedly I don't know a lot about Glory. the team fight... probably DC, mostly down to Wonder Woman and Superman, unless... there's a chance Mids could get his hands on some Kryptonite, somehow. Maybe out of Batman's belt, we know he carries an emergency piece, both Superman's weakness to Kryptonite and Batman's famous contingency plans are well documented on Comic Vine, so... yeah. Midnighter grabs the Kryptonite out of Batman's belt and evens the playing field. This of course relies on the Kryptonite being there.

About your loadout though, Midnighter's not much for guns, and he wouldn't need them to take out Batman anyway. He doesn't have a rule against using them or anything, if a situation called for it he probably would use one. Though as hard as I try, I can't think of a single instance of him using a gun, I may be missing an appearance where he did use one, or forgetting, but... yeah, not common at all. We are talking a guy with enough enhanced strength to be able to kick a man's head clear off his body, he doesn't need a gun. He prefers to get up close, using fists/feet or melee weapons of some variety, (usually a staff, but has been known to use blades and clubs on occasion) maybe throwing stars.

ps. I am assuming 'no Doors' is in effect for Apollo and Midnighter. with Doors, Apollo gets Supes next to a red sun and wins. A bit of a cheap tactic, yes, but... the Authority characters do whatever it takes to win.

I think we will actually see this play out in the comics, eventually, minus Glory... Apollo and Midnighter are spying on Superman already. dunno exactly what Zealot's up to, but she's kicking around the DCU.

This. Midnighter breaks Batman's back again, Apollo hangs with Supes for awhile til he runs out of juice and the ladies jump Diana and pummel her

I just came in to say this.

Midnighter doors batman to space.

Midnighter beats Batman in any book/universe save for Batman’s own book for some crazy unearthly, unheard, of non-pragmatic mystical reason. Superman’s charge outlasts Apollo’s so he’d win after a city/state leveling battle that last a few hours. This is also given were talking about WildStorm Apollo and not DCu. DCu Appollo seems to have these silly spells and drain himself ridiculously fast over feels or what nots I assume. If we’re talking about Ross Campbell’s Glory, then we are talking about a bangin’ fight! That one would be alongside the Apollo and Superman fight. It would be a good fight through and through, but in the end I see Glory wining with her berserk hybrid form. It would be really close though once Wonder Woman dropped pretenses, took off the cuffs, and let it all hit the fan. Wow, I’d pay money to watch these fights from space.
