@lvenger: Logic here is that superman has had enough problems handling his own clones, or even more, as He-man had handling this superman-clone(who was so good he even had batman fooled).

And why do you even try to compare, and make a solid judgement between characters if you have no knowledge whatsoever about one of the contestants?

@lvenger:

There is no "classic" or " current" He-man. Masters of the universe does not have a "crisis", multiverse or something similar. He-man's character came from the toyline, and filmation added the idea of having a secret identity in the form of half-human prince Adam, who is the only "he-man". Other versions(toys) have been retconned as "He-Ro"(a wandering barbarian who was granted the power of grayskull for a limited time to help stop a snakemen attack) and "King Grayskull"(who was canonized as the creator of the sword, and king Randor's ancestor).

The minicomics and the crude animated VHS-tapes that came with the first toys(1982), the Filmation series(1983-1985), the Movie with Dolph Lundgren, the Jetlag series(1990), the Mike Young Productions cartoon (2002-2003), and the current comicbook line, the current crossover(DC universe VS MOTU) AND the old one(from eternia with death) all involve thesame character, and there is only version of him. With the 2002 series serving as a prequel tot the 1980's series, explaining his origin story and clearing up/canonising some loose ends, and Adam looking a lot younger because he is.

The one odd thing about the current MOTU comicbook series is that they go back and forwards ALL THE TIME between drawing styles from Filmation and the MYP series, including Adam alternating between his Filmation version(twentysomething, who is basically just He-man with clothes on), and the MYP 16-year old version(who tranceforms from an athletic teen into the massive He-man). There is a very clear timeline in Masters of the universe(Adam's age gets mentioned on birthdays in both era's, as do past events such as encounters and fights), even if you were to include the Jetlag cartoon and place those somewhere between his final appearance in the filmation era(She-Ra S02E26) and DC Comic's He-man and the masters of the universe volume 1(2012).

I don't get why they let artists change styles all the time(this also happens in the smallville comic continiously, one volume he looks like Christopher Reeve, then like DCAU-superman, after that like Tom Welling and back again)

As for the fight, think of He-man as a version of Captain Marvel who cannot fly, but with the addition of an indistructable magic sword with various trades. There are only two things that could knock the power out of him, the ramstone(a magical unstoppable item, that possibly might have shattered superman), and a blast from Serpos through King Hiss(Who is on par with Zodak, whp is an omnipotent being). In both cases he could instantly recover by transforming again.

There is no reason why he-man would not be able to do the real superman what he did to the clone. After all, Bizarro and Cyborg Superman are also a match for Superman.

@mr_winchester: "As durable as he needs to be"!

But even he-man is not all-powerfull, enough blunt force can actually punch him so hard he reverts back to Adam. This happened two times in the 2003 series, and once in the 80's cartoon.

Funny thing about last month's comic fight is that it mirrors the events of "from eternia with death"(One invading the others universe, superman mindcontrolled by skeletor)..

It does place continuity at odds, this crossover story arch ties in to the new masters of the universe comics(directly!). The events in the new MOTU comics take place after the "new adventures" cartoon, but He-man(and the whole of Eternia with him) has only partially recovered from the mindwipe Skeletor did(To the point that he does not recognize his sister Adora), but Hordak still remembers her being She-ra one time. It makes sense that even if "from eternia with death" from the DC or MOTU point of view, He-man does not remember his previous encounter with superman.

However, Superman does not recognize or remember He-man, and looking at style of costumes from the rest of the justice league, I'd say it's either DCAU or DC Original Animated movies superman he just turned into kebab. And, AFAIK the MOTU point of view, there is only, strict universe, there have been several he-man(he-men?), who got to use the power for a short time, channeled to the then-sorceress, but only Adam of Eternia(With his earth-born mother Marlena, who is present in the DC universe of the new comic), is the direct descendant of King Grayskull and the true, fullpowered He-man.

@avenging_x_bolt:

The game specifically mentions Terry in that suit. The rest of your statements are valid. I did not know that alternate skins also could have alternate voice files in the game.

Green Lantern John Steward is more then just a skin, since he also uses another voice, coming either very close to the JLU cartoon voice, or it is possibly that very actor.

John isnt a character. he's a skin. its been explicitly stated that he's a sin since before it was even confirmed. they simply re-recorded Hal's lines with a Phil Lamarr's voice just like they did with Green Arrow's ARROW skin.

You can play as batman beyond, and still have thesame standard voice and expressions and sequences as the other versions of batman you play. I think John Steward is a new character as well..

So you're reasoning for John being a complete character is Batman Beyond who is also in the game AS A SKIN. that makes NO sense.

Why not introduce Zatanna or Powergirl? Or Vigilante?

and they would never introduce Vigilante because no one besides comic fans even remotely remembers or respects the character.

If you dont believe me check it out for yourself

Then why no seperate voice lines for Batman Beyond?

Hulk is NOT unstoppable. He is not Juggernaut.

To He-man, he would be unstoppable. The "ramstone" of eternia has a similar power to that of juggernaut, and while he-man manages to divert it, the punches he takes from it can revert him back to prince Adam. (But all he would need to do is call upon his power again and he's back in the fight). Hulk is also fast, and as WWH he is also smart.

Hulk gets stronger the angrier he gets, and has no upper limit. Neither does He-man, but he can call upon more power as he needs it. No matter what he calls upon, eventually the Hulk will catch up and match him. So he would need to call upon enough power to be far ahead of the Hulk, to buy some time to find a method get rid of him, throw him into space, subdue him, or even use the halls of castle greyskull, that features portals through time, space and alternate dimensions.

As with whatever opponent you give either character they'll always win in the end, there would be no true victor in the one-on-one.

@Omega Ray Jay: Very true. If he could be real, so would his enemies, or they would start "building" them, in order to keep the balance of power in place, he would after all be a god among men.

Superman Returns actually has most of these things. The game only lacks a developing story and the "normal missions" are just crap(especially the one with the dragons, it's appearantly just another day in Metropolis when a firebreething dragon jumps out of nowhere and starts setting fire to office buildings).I got the feeling the game was rushed for the movie, since you can not actually "super-speed" during a rescue part, as in everything slows down around you and you can rescue people then.And a new physics system for mid air (boss)fight? they could use something similar to the dragonball-z fighting games on the 360, this works well enough. Ofcourse it will be limited, since freelook(aiming heat-vision) in combination with hovering an free flight is unplayable, the main reason why you fight bizarro on the ground.

And in justice league heroes he was pretty well done.
