Ras

Lex.

#1003 Posted by waezi2 (7590 posts) - - Show Bio

Hard one.

Lex is possibly smarter than Ras, but Ras has more experience in combat.

Ra it is.

#1004 Edited by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

I vote Lex. He's no slouch in the hand to hand aspect himself, plus I consider him to be the better intellectual and strategist. Ra's had to steal Batmans plans to take on the god like Superheroes. Lex does it every other week.

I will say though it would be close and I don't think this one is a stomp.

R'as given Luthor has none of his scientific inventions and its a battle of pure strategy.

Also, this thread just passed the 1000 post mark. :) Thanks to everyone for participating so far!

I think we're officially at the point in round 2 that each matchup is a stomp. Sorry that it came a bit earlier than expected, but the whole missing contestant (LiveWire) problem put it a bit ahead of schedule. We would have two matches left. The remaining contestants are:

Parallax

Brainiac

Reverse-Flash

LiveWire

If there aren't any objections, I'll move Reverse-Flash and Parallax onto the next round, as they're the winners of the two most fair matches from that set of contestants. If no one objects, the next match should be up soon.

#1018 Edited by batmannflash (6221 posts) - - Show Bio

No objections from me

#1019 Posted by ULTRAstarkiller (6181 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm cool with it

#1020 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

Hhhmm.. Brainiac can be viewed as a cosmic level threat, similar to Parallax. Not sure if I'd see Reverse-Flash being more powerful than either of those two....If I was looking to advance any automatically, I'd have voted Parallax and Brainiac personally....

Onto the very first match of round 3, a showdown between two of the strongest contestants in the tournament......*suspense*

Darkseid, the Ruler of Apokalips, vs. Parallax, the Embodiment of Fear!

This match would begin in Metropolis, but I'd assume they're chaos would reach farther than that if the fight continued. So, who wins?

If it doesn't appear to be a stomp, I'll post some of my thoughts on the match (something I'm hoping to do a lot more of from now on).

#1022 Posted by Veshark (9058 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't know enough about either to make an educated vote. Which Parallax incarnation is this?

#1023 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6340 posts) - - Show Bio

@wishiwassuperman: It wasn't based on who's the strongest of the four, it's based on the winners of the fairest matchups. In my opinion, the fairest matchups would be

Parallax vs. Brainiac (Parallax)

And Reverse-Flash vs. LiveWire (Reverse-Flash)

Sorry for the confusion :)

#1024 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6340 posts) - - Show Bio

@veshark: Hmmmmm.... I'm admittedly not quite well-versed on Parallax either. Eh... I guess whichever is the standard, non-Hal Jordan infected version?

If memory serves, he still needs a host. There was Kyle Rayner in SCW, and currently it's Sinestro. Then again, I'm no GL expert.

#1026 Edited by ULTRAstarkiller (6181 posts) - - Show Bio

This is npt a stomp I don't think. I say Darkseid.

#1027 Edited by batmannflash (6221 posts) - - Show Bio

Darkseid.

#1028 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: ahh ok - got it.

as for my vote - this is really dependent on several factors, especially on the version of parallax.

#1029 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6340 posts) - - Show Bio

@wishiwassuperman: @veshark: Yeah, I'm not too sure about GL stuff. I'll search into it and see which version of Parallax in the morning. Until then, 2-0, Darkseid.

#1030 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, I know there's at least 3 different versions of Parallax to consider, each of which vary's in strength/power. Then again Darkseid has had different incarnations as well. His Avatar version for example is apparently considerably weaker than the actual New God himself in the flesh, and allegedly it's the avatar that our JL heroes tend to face off against. And didn't Darkseid defeat Ares' entire pantheon IIRC? Plus he's immortal.... kind of hard to actually beat someone who is immortal... just think this is a tough call. Definitely can't see this being a stomp.

#1031 Posted by gator4eva (396 posts) - - Show Bio

If we're talking about the entity of Parallax itself and not with a host then wouldn't the battle simply be Parallax trying to find Darkseids fears? Not sure how many fears Darkseid has but I'd imagine he could overcome them and thus defeat Parallax so my vote goes to Darkseid.

#1033 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

@gator4eva: I'm not sure Darkseid has any fears himself... If anything he loves fear, it's one of his own tools.

BUT if it's Parallax within a certain host (such as the Hal Jordan version) I'd say it's a whole different ballgame.

#1034 Posted by waezi2 (7590 posts) - - Show Bio

Without being absolutely sure: Parallax

I'm gonna just say Darkseid. My vote may change if necessary but over-all I think Darkseid wins more often than not.

#1039 Edited by RulerOfThisUniverse (6340 posts) - - Show Bio

9-1.

Well... unless you're one of those people who just wants to watch the world burn... in which case you'll vote Parallax and we will be stuck doing this dance forever.....

Is this New 52 Cheetah or not?

Anyways, I think I have to go with Cheetah. She's able to hold her own against Wonder Woman, even in Pre 52. In the New 52, she can take on the Justice League.
