Clearly the deciding factor is Aquaman is in one and not the other.

This is true, however the after credits video leads right to a Throne of Atlantis storyline that'll hopefully show him off

Yeah and it better be good... the current DC Movies haven't been so hot...

Yeah, but better than Marvels animated movies

Boy is that the truth. As much as I've enjoyed the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I've equally hated pretty much every animated thing they've done with Marvel. Only a few are even tolerable. And I'm usually more fond of Marvel's characters than DC's. But DC just has better animated films/television plain and simple.

The only Marvel one I can remember liking in recent memory was AVENGERS: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. And they shitcanned that one, God knows why.

@zzombie13: hokey is certainly a valid descriptor.

Why they couldn't call it Superman/Batman: World's Finest, I'll never know.

Because non-comic fans don't know what world finest means.

Maybe not, but the title isn't just DAWN OF JUSTICE. It's BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. If a potential ticket buyer don't know who Batman or Superman are, should the title really be pigeonholed just to accommodate the 7 people who don't know who those characters are? Calling it BATMAN v SUPERMAN: WORLD'S FINEST wouldn't take a single thing away or make it more difficult for John Q. Public to know what the film potentially is or isn't.

Not that I'm saying WORLD'S FINEST should or shouldn't be chosen. But whether the general public knows the reference or not is irrelevant.

I still can't get over the terrible name of the movie lol.

Yeah, I'm with you on this one. It's just such a hokey name. I understand that sometimes our beloved comics can bend towards the cheesy side of the spectrum, but "DAWN OF JUSTICE" just sounds so blah to me. It sounds like the SyFy channel knockoff of a superhero movie rather than the licensed studio version.

Gotta go with Slade on this one. Taskmaster is cool and all, but Slade would figure out his copy abilities pretty quickly. Then it's just a matter of staying hidden and striking at the right time.

Not to take anything away from Taskmaster of course. I think he's a really interesting character. In most fights like this, I'd probably pick him in fact. But I don't think he would stand up to Slade.

Flashpoint for sure.

I didn't pick up the comics so I can't compare them to the source. But I really enjoyed the movie version. I liked the dark twisted version of the DC universe that Flashpoint showed us. I liked the resolution to the story, I liked the villain, the plot was fun to follow. Pretty much liked every bit of it.

Iron Man by way of the Apple store just isn't doing it for me.

The stories may be great, the character may be great, and Iron Man could certainly use a new focus in his book(s). But the armor just isn't my thing.

Each con I attend, the cleverness of the cosplayers seems to get more and more interesting. At AKON in June I saw a Xenomorph from ALIEN, I saw a Raiden from Revengeance, as well as many many other impressive outfits. I've seen a person cosplaying as MOTHRA complete with full wingspan, I've seen a gender swapped Marcus Fenix, an undead Stormtrooper... the list goes on and on.

It's not a hobby I partake in, but the level of skill always manages to be very impressive.

I'm a fan of Deathstroke. No denying he is both formidable and skilled enough to take down opponents of all kinds.

That being said, Hellboy is no mere opponent. He's a primal force of nature. He's an apocalypse with a cigar. Slade could no more beat Hellboy than he could beat up a hurricane. There aren't a lot of characters who I'd say outclass Slade, but Hellboy is one of them.

Why? What has hellboy done to say he gets a majority?

You know, I may have rushed to judgement on this one. I misread which version of Deathstroke this is. If this is the one with the NTH metal armor, he'd stand a much better chance that I initially gave him credit for. If memory serves, NTH metal can disrupt magic, right? That could give him an edge I didn't consider.

As for why I give it to Hellboy though, it's not so much a list of feats or opponents as it's his background. Forged in the fires of hell, at least in my book, beats augmented metahuman. Although, as I said, I may have rushed a judgement on this one.
