Can Wonder Woman's skill and impressive physicals allow her to defeat the powerful Sinestro in combat? According to the Comic Vine community, yes, she totally can and would. Out of 413 votes, 53% thought Diana would knock Thaal's lights out. A respectable 41% thought Sinestro would stand victorious and 6% believe the fight is just too close to call.
Despite losing the poll, Sinestro is by no means a character anyone should underestimate. He's recently endured a planet destroying attack and has obliterated Mongul II in an absolutely vicious fight. His power ring offers a wide array of dangerous attacks, too. From blasts to blunt force, there's a massive amount of attacks the alien can unleash during his battle with the amazon. However, Wonder Woman has the raw speed and sheer might to contend and even overcome the wealthy amount of variety Thaal's ring has to offer -- that's not even factoring in her lasso and bracelets either. Sinestro is an incredibly tough fellow and he won't be easy to drop, but it's clear the majority of Viners think she has what it takes to knock him out. Let's check out one standout argument for Diana and see what a Comic Vine staff writer has to say about this one.
Viner Argument of the Week for Wonder Woman is by RazzaTazz
"Wonder Woman might have the best collection of power items in the DC Universe. And while Sinestro is skilled with the power ring, she is equally ingenious with her combat ability and powers. Even without powers she is a hand to hand combatant at par with Batman, and add in the super abilities and she stands almost equal to Superman. I suppose its not really relevant to the discussion, but it is likely that her willpower is even stronger than Sinestro, as she held out against death at the hands of Neron for an unexpectedly long time. What this comes down to is that Wonder Woman only needs to get the lasso around any part of his body and he is done."
Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder, Comic Vine writer
"This is another neck-and-neck match. I mean Wonder Woman sees Sinestro and what's she going to do but charge? But this plays right into Thaal's hands, his mind racing at a mile a minute against this brutish woman and grabbing her in a terrifying, yellow light construct, hurling her into orbit and scoffing.
Sinestro doesn't quite know who he's dealing with, however, this isn't some lumbering, knuckle-dragging oaf, but an Amazon who knows how to reverse direction and charge back at him. Sinestro barely has time to raise a barrier before Wonder Woman collides with him, sending them both packing through the buildings. This is where Diana has an advantage as Sinestro can't and won't sacrifice himself to deal damage, but he still manages to blast her off with a pure power blast. He loses sight of her, though, but she's wounded. He charges his ring and turns just in time to see Wonder Woman smash up through the floor. He hits her with a series of bolts, but she deflects them with her bracers. He conjures the greatest horrors of the cosmos he can imagine, but Diana has faced horrors of mythic proportion that a mortal mind can't imagine and lassos Sinestro in one quick motion.
"Tell me...what do YOU fear?"
"Defeat...my will crushed..."
"It's time you faced it, then."
One punch later, and Sinestro is out, Diana leaving him for Hal to take him to a sciencell."
Last but not least, here's a tease for the next battle. Can you guess who both characters are before it's revealed on Monday? Hint: the left image is obviously Galactus.
