Good article, and its true that some people take these fights way too serious. It's also true that the writer can always make a case of why a certain character should win. I just hope that when they do, they base it off of the character's history, and not just to appease to the mob to sell the book.

That said, the JLA/Avengers crossovers were good reads, though I prefer the one where the fans didn't vote for the outcomes.

He has the speed and skill of Wolverine,

Gambit is no where near comparable in skill to Wolverine or anyone of that level of martial tier.

It was an analogy, and so it was not intended to be perfectly accurate. Gambit is a highly skilled cqc combatant, especially with his bo staff in hand. Much more so than, Cyclops. That was the point.

Cyclops' optic blast can be used in open and closed environment since he is able to control the intensity of the blast, from blasting skin off the Hulk, to making a bank shot in billiards. A staff is half of the equation. The other is H2H combat, which Cyclops has been formally trained in. The man has fought multiple opponents blind and has won. I'm not saying Gambit isn't a good fighter; being a street fighter gives him advantages, but we are talking about someone who has fought both Captain America and Wolverine and was able to hold his own. Plus, again, the key factor is that Cyclops knows Gambit's abilities very well since he lead him into battle. Cyclops wins.


No way is Scott "Slim" Summers stronger than Gambit either. Remy is by far and away the more athletic of the two in every way - including strength.

Let's see Scott balance himself on his index finger before we tout him the stronger one here.

Scott is really popular on the Vine. I've really no idea why. Remy should take this fairly succinctly.

Balance on an index finger does not mean one is stronger than the other; that's not a valid point. Bruce Lee did one finger push-ups. Does that mean he's stronger than Brock Lesnar, who benches 600 lbs? In the same case, being called "slim" doesn't mean one isn't strong. It just means the body make up is different. They're pretty much the same size if you look at them. Cyclops has been seen tagging multiple people with his blast while performing flips. I think that qualifies him as being just as athletic as Gambit.

This will be close do to the set of abilities displayed, but Cyclops should take this, though it will be close. The interesting thing about this fight is that they know each others moves, but Cyclops has a more in depth knowledge of Gambits fighting style due to him leading Gambit into battle. Couple this with the fact that Cyclops has a better tactical mind (which allows him to see the big picture), the fight shouldn't be that long. The charged up cards will be a problem, but a deflection from the optic blast should suffice. Due to the optic blast, Gambit would not be able to get in close, but if he does, Cyclops has been trained to fight multiple enemies, and has fought people with a superior fighting skill than Gambit, thus Gambit shouldn't be an issue hand to hand, but it won't be easy. My money is on Cyclops.

Cyclops versus Batman has been done, but him fighting Deathstroke would be great. Cyclops versus Cable would be good too.

I like the idea with Tony, but jeez, look at the line work. It looks rushed. They could have cleaned that up a bit.

This is a very close match indeed. I voted too close to call because they are very evenly matched. Both Iron Fist and Batman have faced opponents more powerful then them and have come out on top.

A lot of people are saying Danny's chi is the game changer, but Batman has survived blows from Solomon Grundy, and Superman, and has kept fighting. People are saying Danny is way stronger than Bruce, but Bruce is at physical peak. In the opening seen of Hush, it shows how much he can bench. In the Bruce Wayne Fugative storyline, Bruce is shown telling Casandra Cain to take over subduing a meta human for him, and he tells her to use the equivalent strike force of crushing a skull to keep him knocked out, implying that he is capable of doing the same.

That strength, plus his top tier fighting skill puts Batman on par, skill wise, with Iron Fist. Also take into account that because Batman is a very skilled martial artist, he won't just jump into a fight with Iron Fist, for he can sense a strong fighter. When Batman first met Captain America, he did not just jump in. They both assessed the situation, throwing faints to see how tough the opponent was. I imagine something similar would happen between Danny and Bruce, seeing how this is a random meeting, and both of them at not stupid enough to start fighting a random person of there skill. That is not even mentioning Batman's gadgets and Iron Fist's reflexes and heightened senses. Too many variables to dictate who would win this fight; the match is even.

I didn't read the issue yet, but based on the preview, I doubt Xavier would give the school to Cyclops. They weren't on good terms before Xavier died.

I'm good with all of this. Sam has to learn how to use the shield and compensate for lack of super serum.

Iron Man makes the logical progression of his character.

Female Thor make sense just because of the inscription on the hammer: "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." Thor could be her hero name. Even Thor had a different name in his human form.

I don't understand people complaining about the size of the turtles when the whole concept of this franchise is based on fantasy. I'm looking forward to this movie, then I'll pass judgement after.

Cyclops has been and still is the leader who makes the toughest decisions yet gets criticized for them. Even wolverine admitted he would follow Cyclops (before writers decided to pit them against each other for sales).
