Is Captain Marvel more powerful the Superman
I've recently gotten a little interest in Captain Marvel recently because of Flashpoint. I'm now reading the Trials of Shazam where Freddy takes over as champion, but I've looke the character up on here, wiki, etc, and everything I'm finding seems to conclude that Captain Marvel would give Superman an ass-whoopin. The magic factor alone should be enough for Superman to get his head bashed in, but so far it's said he's faster then Superman, his strength is unknown but he can hang with Superman, and just saying Shazam can heal him from any injury in the time it takes to be struck by lightening. Then you have the wisdom issue. What can any of you tell me that make this true or not true. Can Captain Marvel or Freddy Freeman as Shazam defeat Superman???
No, he's slower, Superman has better speed feats than Captain Marvel
He's physically weaker, Superman comes off better in lifting power and durability than Billy
Superman also has long range attacks, Superman has super breath, heat vision etc Cap marvel can only really call lightning attacks down on the spot where he stands
However Marvel does do much better in fights against magic beings and Superman does have a vulnerability to magical attacks, if Billy were to use his intelligence he could come up with ways of beating Superman
@Primmaster64 said:I always thought Billy could beat Supes. Both they are both awesome.
But Magic. Magic.
He can win, but its because he's exploiting a vulnerability. It doesn't mean that he's more powerful in terms of raw power.
Those of you saying Superman can lift more so he'd win in a fight have never actually been in a real fight. That's like saying the worlds strongest weightlifter could beat Bruce Lee in a fight just cuz he can lift more.
Superman and Captain Marvel's fighting strength is pretty much equal as is there durability. Superman probably edges him on speed, but Captain Marvel has magic, which is Superman's weakness. The new Captain Marvel can even shoot magic projectiles from his hands, by all accounts he could trounce Superman 4/5 of the time. But since Superman is DC's firstborn so to speak, they always allow him to hang even when he should easily lose.
