They have prep? Magneto would do well not to show up, at least not physically. Even then I don't know what he would do in his astral form. I'm doubting Magneto will win this. Do they know what the other can do or is the prep just for them to gather resources? If not, then Magneto would die from lack of knowledge on his opponent.

I believe someone in a blog post I read some time back said that "Jean Grey isn't a girl that does things, but that has things happen to and around her." She needs to become more independent (no, the entire Phoenix thing does not since it is something out of her control that is leading her, rather than being led by her) and avoid relationships for a while. It's okay to have tension, but when she's in a relationship with Scott and there's tension with Logan and things keep bouncing back and forth, it really gets stale and undermines the potential she has. It becomes a contest between Cyclops and Logan that showcases them more than her, and that's a disservice to the character.

I'd like to see Jean without hanging around a man for a while. I want to see her on her own, or just with a team (perhaps even leading?), making big decisions for herself and her life. I doubt Marvel or any body writing for her will do this. They'll probably rehash the same bland cosmic powered Phoenix story once more. *sigh*

@ImmortalT1000: Were not using zombie Jason, were using the human one before he became a zombie. Still though he wins, ya he was avoiding the chainsaw like you said Riddler but what kinda moron would just stand there and let a chainsaw rip them to shreds? But ya due to his strength, and insane durability even before becoming a zombie(he survived a hanging, getting hit in the head with his own machete sure he only twitched but that machete went pretty dang far into his skull and he was STILL alive, and getting an axe to the head)

I wasn't mentioning it for intelligence, I was mentioning it for the way he behaved. He reacted exactly how I would; backing away with eyes wide open in fear - not like how he probably would in his later films, e.g., use his machete to knock it aside, take it from his attacker and then kill them with their own weapon. I think with Bane's intelligence and combat skill, if he sees that his opponent is super humanly strong and durable he'll go for a decapitation. Hand to hand I don't see how Bane can win, so I'm inclined to say Bane loses round 1. Round 2 depends on the location and what weapons they've got.

@never give up: Which Jason are you using?

This is the Jason who truly died at the end of part 4. He did not come back as the zombie version until a later movie.

sorry but can you tell me how he died on part 4 ... i've seen all movies but never recall him "truly" dying.

Young Tommy shaves his head to confuse Jason by trying to look like a younger version of Jason. He get's attacked by the surviving female -- Trish I think it was, who drops the weapon and Tommy picks it up and hacks Jason in the head, Jason hits the ground driving the machete further in. They end up seeing a twitch, and Tommy grabs the machete, and hacks at Jason until the twitch stops. Part 6, an older Tommy has to actively dig him up from his grave, and in anger impales Jason's corpse, then of course lighting strikes the metal rod that Jason was impaled with, somehow reanimating him as a revenant. That is the basics, but it is from memory, as I may have missed a step in there, except for the being killed and being resurrected bit.

This. Jason also showed fear (in part 2) when Jinny(?) pulled out a chainsaw against his pitchfork. He also took care to avoid his own machete when Tommy's sister had it, though he was persistent regardless. It did cause him to get whacked in the hand, but he kept on coming. Still, he feels pain and can be KOed temporarily. His strength is pretty intense even before he became a zombie. Recall part 3 where he crushed Rick's skull until his eye popped out (for that hilariously bad 3D effect)?

Pre-Phoenix Jean Grey, but with post-Phoenix arc powers... if that makes any sense. You have nothing to fear from your telepathic significant other if you're honest from the beginning, plus I doubt Jean is the type that just barges into your mind every two seconds. I thought there was some unofficial oath Xavier had his telepathic X-Men take. To never read another person's mind unless they had permission or there was some crisis that deemed it necessary. Then again, recent comics have turned Xavier into a two-faced, manipulative piece of crap and a third of his X-Men into bipolar, militaristic--

Whoa, I got off-topic. Anyway, I choose Jean. Telekinesis would be fun to have for, um, many reasons. Telepathy would be even more fun and quite frankly very useful too. Not to mention it's possible that a telepath with her level of power and control can not only technically be immortal (possess another body?) but can do the same for another person. Even barring this option, just imagine how much she could help you. Feel run down and mentally exhausted? Just let her pep you up. Realize you have a bad habit that's really hard to beat? She could theoretically just erase it from your mind. I know, I know, it's not the brave and most rewarding way out of such a thing, but it's a possibility that's there. Ignoring her powers for a moment, she is a kind and strong individual, giving and smart. The girl next door with maybe a hidden wild side? Plus she's a redhead. :p

These battles never seem fair or even logical. It's Toon force. It's a show literally filled with reality warpers and complete randomness. Even the artists could enter the story, or the characters would become the artists (two different episodes that I recall from memory). There are literally no rules. Being that Flash is the opposition running against Road Runner, he will be struck with incalculable levels of bad luck, then it will be revealed at the end that he was racing against Zoom the entire time. Honestly, only reality warping characters and omnipotent gods stand a chance.

Won't cosmic beings be affected by the absurd levels of bad luck?

I was thinking that too, actually. There's just too much comedy and wacky elements for this to be a serious fight or race. *shrug*

There are no rules or boundaries for these characters, and all real world and even standard comic world rules and physics are thrown out the window.
