Wonder Woman Against Katana?

#1 Posted by divingfalcon713 (282 posts) - - Show Bio

In the stuff leading up to the trinity war it was hinted that Katana was chosen to be in the JLA to go up against Wonder Woman. Maybe I missed something (totally possible since I haven't read any stuff with Katana in the New52), but I feel like Wonder Woman would destroy her. I get that Katana is a great swords-woman and that her background is slightly magical/mystical, but I still feel like it's a pretty one-sided fight. Can anyone explain to me how she could hold her own/what skills she has to put her on par with someone of Diana's level?

They're probably going to write Diana as an idiot and she'll just fight Katana with her sword, completely forgetting she has super strength, super speed and flying on her side.

@lolzstastic: If so, Johns will get crucified by the fans.

I have no idea. I'm pretty sure WW would stomp her

The only way Katana could beat Diana would be by ambushing her, otherwise the fight is best described as a melon getting stepped on by an elephant.

It's so unimaginative. Not to mention STUPID. Really? They couldn't find Exoristos from Demon Knights and power her up? They couldn't reintroduce a revamped Artemis? They couldn't make a NEW CHARACTER?! Sorry but if Katana even manages to nick Diana in that fight, Johns will be receiving some very interesting responses. Possibly fatal to his health

Wonder Woman wins with one punch.

I'm afraid that Johns will end up going this route...

I don't even see how she could legitimately beat WW through ambush. She could maybe hurt her, but after that I still feel like she'd get trounced.

Idiocy is expected with a match up like this.

They probably wanted to give Katana a push even though all they needed to accomplish that is to not give Ann Nocenti her ongoing series.

@lolzstastic: Haha. That's funny though I can't actually agree as I have no personal experience of Nocenti's writing. I get the impression I should be thankful for that

@lolzstastic: this is the ultimate proof that DC doesn't care about wonder woman,they let her be the punching bag of street level characters,they treat her very bad,some fans still want to believe she is part of the trinity but she isn't,they don't treat her as part of it,superman has had bad writtin moments too,but they would never let superman get a hard time fighting an street level character in a very important event that affects the whole DC universe,but they don't have any problem to let wonder woman get the low part of the contract as usual,wow,what amazing treatment for the most iconic female,when you see how bad they treat the best selling female comic chararacter,then it doesn't surprise you when you see how bad the other females are treated in the comic world,we haven't come too far when it comes to female rights in the comic world my friends.

@akindoodle: Oh you are, you are. I have no idea how bad her Katana is (it's probably pretty bad) but her Catwoman is by far the worst thing in stands right now and her Green Arrow was abysmal, I'd go as far as call it the worst run on the character ever.

Its Geoff Johns, so Katana will beat Wonder Woman if he wants her to and that's just how its going to be. If he's feeling generous, then he'll offer some half-assed plot device explanation, but I wouldn't even count on that.

Well... A katana is a whole lot cooler than a lasso

#22 Posted by gokuwarrior (4368 posts) - - Show Bio

@lolzstastic: it has to do with your comment,because the bad writtin moments that she has had through the years are something that most A list characters don't have as often as she does,proving DC doesn't care about her,and this karana fight will probably prove that once again.

#23 Posted by gokuwarrior (4368 posts) - - Show Bio

@sporedust: that's your oppinion,for me,an unbreakable lasso that can destroy darck creatures,can make anyone tell the truth,can create a hestia circle that monsters can't pass,can heal insanity and can disable any type of illysion>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>a katana.

@gokuwarrior: Yeah, problem is, I said nothing that had to do with that so...

#25 Posted by gokuwarrior (4368 posts) - - Show Bio

@lolzstastic: you said they are going to writte her as an idiot that forgets all the powers she has,and that has to do with bad writtin,the many bad writtin moments that she has been getting through the years because it's obiously that DC doesn't care about her,they don't treat as a true part of the trinity like some fans want to think.

OK yeah its just plain dumb to square off wonder woman against katana

They'er just building -up up katana for the new Batman series.Pairing her against WW helps her popularity with comic fans.

As for the katana having a victory over WW. I don't think even DC's that stupid

@gokuwarrior: I only said what could happen, not what happened. ANd honestly, I have no interest in debating this, what you said isn't even the point I was going for, I'm not even that big of a Wonder Woman fan, so leave me out of this.

Most of the supposed pairings between the JL and JLA are pretty stupid. The whole premise of the Justice League is that they are the world's most powerful heroes, so to then make a team with the same number of people and expect any of them to stand a chance is already a flawed premise. Maybe the JLA and JLD will join together to take on the JL. Without strength in numbers there is no reason that ANY JL member should lose his/her respective matchup. Superman and Wonder Woman could probably beat the entire JLA single-handedly.

#31 Posted by divingfalcon713 (282 posts) - - Show Bio

@dmessmer: Yeah, I feel like the JL could easily take everyone on JLA with the exception of Martian Manhunter. He was seriously underrated before the New52 and now they seem to be taking an interest in really using him to his full potential.

Well I imagine Katana could deliver a fatal blow to WW if she jumps her without WW being aware of her.

#36 Edited by divingfalcon713 (282 posts) - - Show Bio

@outside_85: Yeah, you're right. I guess I'm assuming that they're not trying to kill each other.

#37 Posted by Alak (920 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm going to be honest when I say that the only person in the JLA who impresses me is Martian Manhunter. I expect everyone else to be stomped by their respected JL counterparts. Well, Baz might do well since he has a power ring, but compared to the Justice League, I just feel like he'd be taken out pretty easily. Katana, who has no real power, is supposed to be comparable to Wonder Woman? She'd be the first to get taken out in this fight...

#38 Edited by gokuwarrior (4368 posts) - - Show Bio

@theocitylegend: she will probably have an stupid plot in her advantage,that's all she will get if she gets something,15 minutes of fame for poor katana and then back to the shadows,comic writters are so lame sometimes.

that will only happen if wonder woman forgets she has superhuman senses and super reaction speed,how the hell someone like wonder woman who has great fighting skills,a lot of experience in combat and with reflexes fast enough to react against omega beams and speedblitzs from supergirl will be taken by surprise by a streel level character like katana?.

@black_claw: Same could be said with Wonder Woman vs Cheetah or Superman vs Batman.. Or Wonder woman vs Batman. Katana is a skilled fighter so why not, the truth is if it's not any A lister character vs Diana then no one would want them to win.

@tanet62: Yes I did find your username a bit odd :p @gokuwarrior: I think you should show some of the feats of this "Lasso" your talking about like reference it a soul taking Katana is awesome.

#42 Posted by Bogey (930 posts) - - Show Bio

It's good to see Katana getting a push but her solo series kinda makes her look weak.

#43 Posted by divingfalcon713 (282 posts) - - Show Bio

@justthatkid: Actually Cheetah has usually had strength enough to compete with Wonder Woman as well as being faster.

I don't care that Katana isn't an A-lister, I just haven't seen any indication that she is in Diana's league

#44 Edited by TAneT62 (1055 posts) - - Show Bio

@justthatkid: Same goes.

@tanet62: WOAH THERE!

Katana has got this.

Give me a legit reason? She is an ant to Diana.

She is no where near Diana's level. She's outclassed in strength, speed, endurance, combat, and just about everything, tenth fold. Unless the writer decides to turn Diana into a vegetable, then maybe Katana has a tiny chance.

And don't try and back you're statements up, unless you have obvious scans that indicates anything.

When I'm say wonder woman need high-level feats,someone call me "shallow“they are say "you need read layered story and plot dont care silly feats!!"

See?we are hope wonder woman got high level feats,people call us this is shallow,high-level feats is silly,

I am glad to hear them say"Dont care silly feats!we just need good story and plot!"

@powerwoman: When you say the writer sucks just for not giving high end feats that's when its dumb. WW has enough feats to beat Katana anyways. But knowing Johns he will make it a hard fight, probably.
