Storm vs Wonder Woman

BY REQUEST FROM ONE OF MY TWITTER FOLLOWERS:
 

  VS.  
 
OK I know Storm like the back of my hand but not so much Diana, so I'm doing as much research as I can before writing this but if i miss a few details PLEASE correct me.
 

Storm

Advantages/Powers

1) First and foremost Ororo has her formidable Alpha-level mutant weather powers.  This gives her almost complete control of the weather patterns surrounding her.  She can utilize these abilities to:
  • Generate lightning (both in the sky and from her hands)
  • Winds of almost any intensity (which she uses to fly)
  • Create rain from showers to thunderstorm
  • Blizzards
  • Hail and Sleet
  • Create Pressure Domes
  • Perceive the world as changing weather patterns
  • Change air temperature
  • Her body resists negative effect of extreme temperatures
2) Mastery of all forms of combat.  Trained over the years by Cyclops, Wolverine, Achmed El Gibar, Black Panther, Thing, and Shadowcat, Storm has been highly skills on many for of armed and unarmed combat.  She held her own against foes such as Cyclops, Callisto, Sabretooth, and Mystique.
3) Lockpicks/Thief Skill - From her years on the streets of Cairo, Storm has learned survival techniques that serve her in almost any environment.  More then once she has been called on to use her stealth skills rather then her mutant powers to free herself and the X-men from captivity.  

Weaknesses

1)  Storm's main weakness over the years has bee her cripplingly severe claustrophobia.  She developed this condition when she was a child with her parents and a plan crashed into their Cairo home.  Her parents were killed and she was trapped under wreckage for days.  Has not been TOO big an issue in recent years.

Woman Woman

Advantages/Powers

1) God-like Abilities - Diana has many powers that were given to her by Demeter
  • Strength - She is in the same class as Superman and has been known to lift over 100 tons.
  • Speed - She is incredibly fast but her exact speed varies depends on the writer.  Also incredibly agile.
  • Flight - This depends on which Wonder Woman you are looking at.  Most older versions of Diana needed her Invisible Airplane to fly but more recently she can fly under her own power.
  • Animal Rapport - She can communicate with animals much like Moonstar is able to.
  • Rapid Healing - Due to her divine goddess given abilities she is able to constantly heal herself as well as being highly resistant to poison and corruption.
2) Highly Trained Amazon Fighter - Trained in all forms of Amazon combat and weaponry 
3) Golden Lasso - Forces anyone caught in it to tell the truth.  Also shatters deceptions and illusions
4) Silver Bracelets - Used to deflect all manners of attacks.  Can be used against projectiles, force attacks, and magical blasts.  
5) Tiara - Razor Sharp and returns like a boomerang.

Weaknesses

- While not inherently a weakness, it is worth noting the Wonder Woman's strength and endurance are tied to the planet due to her connection to Gaea. 

FIGHT!

Well this battle would probably take place in large part in the sky since that Ororo's normal battle ground and I can't see Diana staying grounded for this.  Once up in teh sky I imagine that Storm would pelt WW with high powered winds and rain and really crank up the air pressure.  Once she established WW's durability she would probably then hit her with some lightning to try and knock her out of the sky.  I might even see her whipping up a tornado or micro-hurricane  to try and throw Diana off-balance keeping in mind that while Diana has Ororo beat on speed, the air isn't necessarily her natural element.
 
On the other hand, assuming Diana can get past whatever nasty weather Storm is brewing up and get face to face with her, the ballgame changes considerably.  For all her elemental fury, Storm is still baseline human in strength and endurance so up against WW's goddess granted power she would probably fold however I see even Wonder Woman struggling to get past a full force hurricane wind with rain and whatever else Storm can throw up so she'd have to try and use her other advantages.  She may try and throw her tiara at Storm in hopes of knocking her out or use her golden lasso to grab Storm by the foot, cape or arm and drag her down to the ground.
 
If this battle makes it to the ground then things change considerably.  Storm loses a lot of her maneuverability that she had airborne however drawing on her skills as a thief to use anything and everything for cover and as weapons and here is where her true instincts as a force to be reckoned with come out.  However, on the ground also granted Diana full use of her incredible speed which far outmatched Storm's, as does her superhuman strength.
 
I would say that the location of the battle plays a huge role in this battle.  In the air Storm has a true fighting chance due to her maneuverability while in flight and there she can take full advantage of her elemental powers.  On the ground Diana's physical abilities far outmatch Ororo's, whose weather abilities are slight more limited when grounded.  Also, keeping in mind that Diana has the endurance of a god and is able to refresh and heal herself so unless Ororo can keep her off-guard she will just heal her wounds.
 
I'm gonna have to say that Wonder Woman probably wins this one.  Storm has a chance if she can keep her off balance and airborne but the odds are against her.

@JediXMan: Well I think its up for debate whether or not Wonder Woman is faster then light, that's why I left that up in the air.  Even according to her wiki page on this site she HAS been shown to be as fast as some of DC's fastest characters but other times not so much (or maybe "canonical speed is much slower (still above normal human)" means something else).  I just figured we'd stick with attributes that are set in stone not up to writers discretion.  
 
And I am sure one of our wonderful mods will get my forum where it needs to be...

Wonder Woman could flick Storm's head off her shoulders, she doesn't stand a chance.

Diana, even on a bad day.

They are both great characters. I am a huge Storm fan but Wonderwoman would win this. Creative take on their battle though.

WW probably wins? WW wins this with both hands behind her back, both feet tied together, and blindfolded.

Wonder Woman wins.
Posted by CEO_OF_FRESH

It'd be an epic battle no doubt about it. Both have a shot at winning. If it was a strictly hand to hand combat, fight to the death. Diana would win she's got superior fighting skill and Storm isn't willing to kill, like Diana is. However, Storm has become arguably the best X-Man combatant and would be able take Diana's power from all the battles alone. Now Wonder Woman's power is godly, but so is Storm's. Under the right emotions, Storm could become an unreachable(In the sky) beacon of raw power, to the levels of a god. Consequently, Storm and Wonder Woman more or less have the same levels of Agility, Speed, and Endurance. Two weaknesses of Diana's not mentioned, are energy and piercing weapons. Storm main form of attack is energy.  However Diana is Extremely resistant to blunt force. It's pretty evenly matched, but I would go with Storm. Also take in to account she defeated Wonder Woman in DC Vs. Marvel

This fight wouldn't be epic.Wonder Woman could end this in one move..every time.

Wonder Woman outclasses. A fight between these two would not really be a fight. 
WW 10/10 times.

In a DC/Marvel Crossover Storm beat WW

@cascadeking09: @JediXMan: As I stated in the original post, someone specifically asked me about doing this...and I guess its not so over done that it isn't still requested and talked about, right?
 
@Aheld92: Exactly!  Ororo's a very resourceful woman, I don't think its ever a shut out between these two, theres always a chance it can go either way
Posted by JediXMan
@Gold Dust Boi
 
It's brought up very often, but the end result is always the same. It's only up for debate when people don't understand that the crossover is non-canon. That and it's against the rules to make a dupe thread; but considering has different circumstances, then it might be overlooked.

See? This is what I mean.
 
That was - and I'm only going to say this once:

NOT CANON.

 
In other words, it is not relevant in any way, shape, or form.

Maybe, but whoever requested may not have known about those other threads. But it's fine.
 
Ororo lack's the speed to avoid being hit and lacks the strength and power to put her down, I also don't think she has the durability to stand up to a hit from Diana, but I'm not sure about that.

@JediXMan: An Actual fight between Storm and Wonder Women would be NON-CANNON! honestly its a toss up on who would win, i was just pointing out the two battled in the past and Storm was the winner .

@JediXMan@cascadeking09:  
 
ok, i usually avoid the ww storm threads..but i will admit i CAN see how Storm could be able to win, imagine the worse storm you've ever saw, blizzards with zero visibility, hail the size of baseballs coming at you, freezing cold temps, pouring rain, thunder and fast winds blocking out sound, lightning, now imagine if that storm was AIMING at you, i know in a face to face fight ww would k.o storm easily, but under those circumstances, wonder woman wouldn't even see two feet in front of her, let alone know where to hit storm, she wouldnt be able to hear anything but winds, she would have to contend with nature at it's worse, all while dealing with lightning striking at random, not one or two bolts, but dozens, i can honestly see how storm could win

In debates, only canon information is to be used. That's just how it works.

@The Stegman: This would work if you ignore her durability levels and that she was literally frozen to ice before and came out fine. It would be difficult, but even in a situation like that WW has a chance at winning, though it would be much easier for Storm to beat her that way. But it's not something Storm does in every fight just like WW doesn't blitz every person she has greater speed than in a fight.
Posted by The Stegman
@cascadeking09: see that's just it, the reason i'm slightly confused on who would win is because ww's durability is so freakin' inconsistent, is some cases she survives bolts from Zeus himself and is fine, in others superman's heat vision hurts her, like you said, sometimes she is frozen and shrugs it off, yet apparently bullets could hurt her, that's the problem with the /near/ invulnerable types, the line that divides what can and can't hurt them is very blurry

I have to disagree with that statement. On the marvel comics official website Storm's official speed rating is put at a level 2, where as Wonder Woman on some instances has been able to travel near light speed. The two also have very different forms of endurance as Storm is only highly resistant to heat and cold while Wonder Woman is highly resistant to physical attacks, radiations, and high or low temperatures. Wonder Woman is a far better fighter than Storm aswell, as she is considered the best fighter of the Amazons who were considered the greatest warriors ever. Also  DC vs Marvel battles aren't canon in battles for some reason and Wonder Woman was far less powerful then than her modern character.

I don't recall her being hurt by his heat vision, but I do remember it melting her skin. I also don't recall bullets actually causing her pain, but I have seen her bleed after being shot. Someone explained to me that it's because her skin isn't tough, but the bone and stuff underneath is, which is why she bleeds from time to time when being stabbed or cut.

riiiight...see that kinda doesn't make sense, i always assumed she had a resistance to magical things, such as Zeus, enchantments and such, but is weakened by man made objects (sort of the opposite of Superman i guess)

Diana.. 
 
this has been done before.. 
 
the only instance Storm has any chance of winning is with Stormcaster or at her Roguestorm form while Diana is not allowed to speedblitz..  
 
if not, Diana wins..

What he meant was that the version of Wonder Woman that lost to Storm in that crossover was not the real, main DC continuity, Wonder Woman. Same with Storm. So what happened in that crossover has no bearing on this battle because for this battle both characters are the Earth-1 and Earth 616 versions. Wonder Woman flies through whatever storm Ororo conjures up and slaps her unconscious.

Not to be mean or anything but this should be locked. It has already been done, and WonderWoman wins.  Again do not get mad but this is going to be nothing but back and forth repeat crap when the fanboys get here.

But you know damn well it wouldn't go that way on paper, for it wouldn't make for an interesting read. 
 
 
and especially if this current revamped Diana,there could be a chance for Storm. 
 
The OP tells the truth,for the most part Diana's powerset fluctuates and her gear changes depending on the writers. It depends. 
 
 
For the most part if you take into account all of Diana's  abilties and feats over the years in every incarnation then she wins..easily. 
Correct me if im wrong but isn't current WW nerfed a bit now?
Posted by Aqua11500
@Gold Dust Boi:  BTW Storm isn't Alpha level, matter fact know one knows how to classify her. 
 
She's never been stated to be a flat out Omega,but she has been pointed out to be Omega Level potential on several occasions. 
 
Also nice take on the battle.very good scenarios,but this might start a forthcoming flame war to the death..lol lol 
 Goodluck,really.because im afraid if this doesn't get locked bad things are coming. 
 
 
Okay done, ima stop bumping this. =)

Wonder Woman wins with ease. 

Edited by Storm Calling

Storm lacks the speed to compete, but there are different forms that could be brought up if people want to be creative. Her Energy form, StormCaster form, and the form of her at the peak of her Magical potential. All three of these could deal with the speed advantage and make the fight a bit more even if people wanted to make a good Storm vs Wonder Woman battle.

Diana has a low resistance to electricity.  STORM FOR THE WIN! :D

@JediXMan: When would any DC/MARVEL Crossoever be considered Canon.   Its the best gauge we have thus far.  SO STORM FOR THE WIN!

1. All caps does not help bring your point across.
2. Actually, some are canon. A select few.
3. We use feats from canon sources and make an estimate.
 
Wow. The fanboys have returned.

It looks like we have another rbysjti on her hands.

Posted by butterflykyss
@JediXMan:  
 
1.  Genuinely speaking there was no intention of trying to make a point with the all CAPS of DC/MARVEL.  DC is always written in all caps and it was coincidence that I chose to write Marvel similarly.   However, seeing it got a response show that some point must have gotten across.  But thanks for the lesson, I'll keep it in mind next time. 
2.  Ok thanks, but what was shown in that particular Story is not a stretch when it comes to there abilities.  Diana has been described as having a low resistance  to electricity in canon DC storylines and Storm, well, she has a little experience when it comes to electricity.  (SIDENOTE:  Not trying to bring across any point with DC and Sidenote :D)
3.  Again, Diana has been shown to have a low resistance for electricity and considering Storm can pummel her with several lightning bolts with less than a conscious thought or in a blink of an eye, it wouldn't be far fetched to seeing Diana succumb to that type of attack. 
 
Oh don't be surprised the fanboys never left, there are more shocking things in the world.  That being said, thanks for the compliment  in labeling me a fanboy, I truly am humbled by it :D
Posted by butterflykyss
@Nefarious: I have heard a lot about this rbysjti, and read a lot of what he wrote on here, and though I admire what they brought to this forum I am my own individual and I can argue my points, logically.  If you disagree that is fine, but trying to reduce my opinion by calling me a fanboy or comparing me to rbysjti or whoever will not make my statements any less true.  All of what I said can be supported by canon.  So yea, if you want to call me another another rbysjti, I will happily except the crown. Thank you  :D

@butterflykyss: Nope, I'm not going to judge you. I will respect your opinions.
