Sup fellas, here's the High Powered Character Tournament. Anything goes. Each fight will last 2 days in the first two rounds. I may go up to three days in the rounds after that do to participant requests. I'm running this tourney on two different boards. Here's the brackets:

If you click on the battle, you'll receive power details, but I'll be posting them here anyway. Please attempt to give reasons as to why you feel one character can beat the other. Only then will your vote be counted.


Kryptonian Physiology: Superman's cellular structure is more dense, resilient and biologically more effective than human tissue. Under natural Kryptonian conditions, does not seem to possess superhuman strength levels despite his enhanced cellular ability without constant exposure to yellow solar energy. Without such charging, his strength seems on par for a human of his height and weight who engages in regular physical activity. As an alien he possess several organs whose functions are not yet disclosed or understood but are believed to be part of and perhaps even the source of his biomatrix force field and reclamation aura. Superman's body also stores energy actively within his bio-cellular matrix as an energy pattern that is linked to his body's electromagnetic field. This energy powers most of Superman's electromagnetic capabilities such as flight and heat vision. It also supplements his physical strength by a factor of 12,000 times or so.

Solar Energy Absorption: Technically, this is the main source of Superman's powers. Because Superman's powers are greatly due to exposure to Earth's yellow sun, his powers have been affected by extreme absorptions of solar power, whether voluntary or involuntary. However, Superman has used this to his advantage in battle in many instances, and to his detriment at certain times.

Superhuman Strength: While the exact magnitude of Superman's strength is unknown, it is generally accepted that Superman is sufficiently strong to lift 100,000 tons or more. The exact specfic range is unknown as Superman's strength, like his other powers, has fluctuated over time. Superman's strength is more an act of conscious will on energy fields than actual physical strength. It is through his act of conscious will manipulation that allows Superman to engage in physical feats that are beyond merely applying applicable force such as moving a mountain top without said rock crumbling under its own mass while Superman moves it. At his theoretical maximum, fully immersed and over charged by yellow solar radiation, the New Earth Superman has been noted to be able to concentrate his will (along with additional external power controls, such as Tempest's magical abilities) into physical force enough to allow him to move Earth-moon sized planetary bodies out of their orbit [9] where after emerging from the Sun over-energized, Superman physically pushed "WarWorld" (an Earth's moon-sized mobile planet) across the solar system and into a boom tube. However being at that level has been directly shown to be adverse to him, and his body is unable to contain that level of energy directly for any true length of time without harmful effects. And again, this level of control and power access is not normal for him to achieve and even in this particular instance, Superman was not able to access nor contain this level solely by his own control. Superman's normal strength levels are obviously in the multi-megaton range.

Invulnerability: Superman's body is nigh-invulnerable to extreme energy forces (He has survived low yield nuclear explosions where he was in direct contact with a ten megaton detonation bomb but was knocked unconscious as a result). This ability's levels have changed over time, at times allowing him to fly into a sun and emerge unharmed, as evident most recently through Krypton's red sun [10] and survive and directly entering directly into the Sun. But usually these effects are achived with external assistance such as Tempest's magic and Luthor's force field technology [11] and the Green Lantern's Corp energy ring shielding.[12] Superman has even been shown withstanding a weakened Darkseid's Omega Effect while they were fighting near the surface of a yellow sun [13], a feat that was previously considered impossible. In addition, his immune system protects him from toxins and diseases. The most common explanations for his invulnerability are Superman having a super-dense molecular structure and/or a supercharged bioelectric "aura" which acts as an invisible "force field" around his body to within a few millimeters from his skin, and presumably within his body as well. The proximity of this field to his skin means that loose clothes, for example, may be burned off of him, while cloth that is close to his body is protected by the "aura;" This phenomenon is sometimes cited as Superman's reason for wearing a skin-tight bodysuit. It is also the understanding that he may unconsciously extend part of this field into objects in contact with him which is assumed for him being able to carry and move objects that would collaspe under their own mass, overcoming gravity or inertia tearing them apart around his human-sized hands.

Superhuman Stamina: Superman has the ability to maintain continuous strenuous physical action for an undefined period. Theoretically, most incarnations of the character has practically unlimited stamina as his enhanced nourishment is produced from the solar energy his cells process; however his base physical structure still does need to process food stuffs as well as has the psychological need to eat and drink just as Earth humans do, despite the fact that his superhuman powers receives the majority of that energy from a yellow sun. He does require sleep on occasion so he can dream. He can also hold his breath for an undefined duration.

Flight: Superman is presumably able to manipulate psionically, graviton particles, in an unknown and apparently unconscious manner, to defy the forces of gravity. Under one Earth gravity, Superman is capable of speeds of multi Mach speeds in Earth's atmosphere. His control of his flight is very precise and he can perform aerobatic feats such as hovering, flying backwards and even lifting great weights while flying. Superman has repeatedly demonstrated he has the ability to achieve orbital speeds, fly in outer space and land safely down to a planet's surface from outer space.

Superhuman Speed: Superman is capable of enhanced reflex action and the ability to move at incredible speeds by sheer force of will. He is not as fast as the Flash, but he can achieve faster than light speed under his own power in space [14]. Superman can match most other speedsters in their ability to perform super-fast movements, reactions, and processes. He can use this power to disarm opponents who do not have heightened reflexes, catch bullets or shrapnel or cross vast distances in seconds.

Super-Breath: The ability to create hurricane force winds by blowing, and to chill his breath in order to freeze a target (this latter ability has also been called "freeze breath" and "arctic breath"). Superman can also breathe in large amounts of air, an ability used when dealing with and disposing things like clouds of poison gas.

Super Hearing: The ability to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. The only Earth creature who can detect sounds at the frequency he can is a blue whale (0.01-200,000 Hz). He has shown enough control to block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source/frequency. He can identify a person by their heartbeat, or pick out a single voice in an entire city.

Heat Vision: The ability to fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it with the conscious act of activating this power. Visually, the power is typically depicted as two beams of red light firing from his eyes. These beams can be made invisible, allowing Superman to work undetected. The maximum temperature of his heat vision is said to be around that of a nuclear detonation. The area of effect can be consciously determined by Superman, down to the microscopic level. Recent stories imply the precision is so exact it can bypass a target's outer shell (not causing damage to a person's skull for surgical purposes) or even defenses (such as invulnerability or intangibility).

Superman Vision: Under only the rays of a Blue sun, Superman found out that he develops a new vision power that allows non-Kryptonians Superman-like powers. The lasting effects seem to only work under a blue sun, once Superman and that person leaves the planet of the sun, the person will lose his powers.

Super Vision: He also possess a superior sensory arrangement of microscopic, telescopic, infrared and ultraviolet visual capabilities. He is able to see the entire spectrum. Microscopic, chemical, x-ray, auditory, ultrasonic, magnetic, photonic, etc. Star Laboratories has not been able to complete define how Superman has been able to utilize his powerful senses, part of the mechanism is physical, part of it is believed to be psionic in nature. Abilities include:

  • Electro-magnetic Spectrum Vision: can see well into most of the EM Spectrum. He can see and identify radio/television and any and all broadcast/transmitted frequencies, allowing him to avoid detection through radar or satellite monitoring methods. Superman can see the paranormal aura that every living thing generates. This ability is apparently one of the main reasons that Superman is a vegetarian, as he can see the passing of the "soul" at death.

  • Telescopic Vision: The ability to "zoom in" his distance to see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. The total telescopic ability is unclassified, but presumed limited to some extent.

  • X-Ray Vision: The ability to see through anything except lead. He can see things behind a wall as if the wall were not there, or can "peel back" layer after layer of matter in his mind. Opponents sometimes used lead-lined constructs in an attempt to hide things from Superman. Kal-El is able to focus his vision past layers of matter, literally seeing "through" them -- possibly perceiving x-rays, cosmic rays or other forms of energy invisible to normal human vision which pass through Earth's atmosphere (and solid objects) after emission from stars. Since it is passive, this ability would not generate harmful radiation in the same manner as a focused projection of hard X-rays.

  • Microscopic Vision: The ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level (normal optical microscopes can only see objects down to the size of chromosomes).

  • Infrared Vision: Allows him to see better in total darkness. He can detect the heat signatures of living beings or devices in operation.

  • Ultraviolet

  • Chemical

  • Ultrasonic

  • Magnetic

  • Auditory

  • Photonic


Expert Combatant: Superman has been trained in the art of Boxing by Wildcat, wrestling by Wonder Woman, and underwater/ space combat by Mongul.

Genius-Level Intellect: Superman has shown enhanced intelligence, meorization and computational abilities; his mind works sharply and with extreme speed. His analytical powers are impressive — he is able to use his senses to read information directly from machines (and, with careful usage of his heat vision, he can even reprogram certain machines). He also posseses a photographic memory which means he has total recall.

Strength level



  • Magic: Superman is also vulnerable to magical effects. Although he is no more detrimentally affected by such effects than a normal human would be, this is a significantly exploitable weakness in comparison to his incredible physical resilience.

  • Kryptonite: Since the destruction of Krypton, its remains (rendered radioactive by the explosion) have been spreading throughout the universe as kryptonite, a crystalline substance whose specific radiation is lethal to Kryptonians native to this reality. There is currently only one natural type of Kyrptonite in the New Earth dimension: Green (Red Kryptonite of the New Earth dimension is artifically created through radioactive manipulation of Green) and both types' effect are directly poisonous to Kryptonians native to the Kryptonite source in a very fast rate. Both forms of Kryptonite are deadly to all living organisms but as a reduced rate compared to Kryptonians same to that native dimension. External dimensional Kryptonite has been repeatedly shown to be ineffective against Kryptonians who do not originate from that same source dimension as Kal-El was against the Kryptonite of the Superboy of the "Pocket Universe".

  • Lead: Superman cannot see through lead with his vision powers.

  • Solar Energy: Superman will eventually weaken without replenishing his energy reserves with normal (yellow) sun radiation. He is not replenished by red sunlight, and its radiation can be used to weaken him.

  • Psionics: Depending upon the writer, Superman is either highly resistent to psionic affects (typically attributed to either his advanced Kryptonian mind or alien brain structure) or he can be affected as easily as a normal human, albeit one with a high level of will power.


Physical Transformation: As a result of a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, AKA the Hulk, Jennifer Walters is able to alter her physical form into a female version of the Hulk. As She-Hulk, Walter's skin, hair, and eyes all turn green. Her frame also gains another 9 inches in height and 510 lbs of muscle and bone tissue. Unlike her cousin, the Hulk, Jennifer retains her full intelligence and personality in her She-Hulk. Most of the time, Walters is able to control her transformation, enabling her to change back and forth at will.

Superhuman Strength: As She-Hulk, she is proportionally stronger than her Jennifer Walters form. This means that any extra strength gained as Jennifer Walters through intense physical training will be amplified, making her She-Hulk form that much stronger. As a result of her intense training, She-Hulk can now lift in excess of 100 tons. Also, unlike the Hulk, She-Hulk's strength doesn't fluctuate depending upon her emotional state. She-Hulk's strength has extended into her highly developed leg muscles, enabling her to leap great distances or heights. She is capable of leaping to a height of over 600 feet and a distance of over 1,000 feet in a single bound.

Superhuman Stamina: She-Hulk's highly advanced musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. She can exert herself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair her performance.

Superhuman Durability: She-Hulk's body is highly resistant to all forms of conventional injury. Her skin is capable of withstanding extreme pressures, temperatures as high as 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as -190 degrees Fahrenheit, falls from great heights, field-artillery canon shells, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite her body's high resistance to injury, it is possible to injure her. However, she is capable of rapidly regenerating injuries that result in great tissue damage and blood loss within a matter of minutes. However, she is not capable of regenerating missing limbs or organs. She-Hulk's highly efficient metabolism renders her immune to most drugs and toxins as well as total immunity to all known Earthly diseases.

Body Switch: Thanks to training by the Ovoid alien race, She-Hulk can exchange her physical characteristics and powers with the physical characteristics and powers of another being by simply focusing on a mental image of the person and willing the transfer to take place. The actual intent of the Ovoid skill is to exchange the minds of the user and another being, but it was theorized by the Ovoid who trained the She-Hulk that some factor of her gamma-mutated physiology causes her use of this talent to manifest in a different way. She rarely uses this power; unless she initiates this exchange with another superhuman being, she will become basically human in ability, but still green-skinned and generally recognizable as the She-Hulk, and thus vulnerable to attack, a fact that the super-villainess Titania took advantage of the one time the She-Hulk did use this ability.

Protection Spell (formerly): She-Hulk was granted a protective ability by her Avengers teammate, the Scarlet Witch, when She-Hulk's job required her to spend extended periods of time as Jennifer Walters. The Scarlet Witch cast a spell which rendered anyone intending to harm the She-Hulk incapable of recognizing her as Jennifer Walters. However, the spell actually rendered Jennifer Walters completely undetectable to these individuals. While this had its advantages, it also left Jennifer unable to communicate with certain people whose knowledge or information it was vital for her to acquire. The spell was eventually removed by Dr. Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe.


  • The She-Hulk is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, having been trained by Captain America and Gamora.

  • Even in her Jennifer Walters form, she possesses sufficient skill in the martial arts to dispatch several would-be muggers much larger than she is.

  • Jennifer Walters is a skilled pilot, as has been shown in multiple issues of Avengers and Fantastic Four.

  • Extremely intelligent, the She-Hulk is a skilled and experienced attorney. In spite of the character's party-girl image, she is a bona fide intellectual, being one of the few superheroines to have attained an advanced post-baccalaureate degree. Jennifer attended UCLA School of Law, where she was a member of the Order of the Coif, a national merit society for top legal scholars. It is revealed in the Savage She-Hulk that Walters has also attended Harvard Law School; though details are not provided, it is probable that she earned a master of laws (LL.M.) degree at Harvard to complement her juris doctor (J.D.) degree from UCLA. She has shown great versatility in her legal practice, representing criminal defendants, corporations, and even domestic violence victims.

Strength level

75-100 tons at first but now he can enhance her physical strength to greater levels


  • Exposure to certain wavelengths of radiation at sufficient doses can temporarily inhibit or override her ability to transform between forms. Much like her cousin, Jennifer's psychological state at the time determines how quickly she is able regain control.

  • She-Hulk has a habit of being late for appointments -- such as on the splash page of Avengers Unplugged #4 (April 1996). Because of habitual lateness, she once missed an opportunity to appear with other Avengers on a segment of the David Letterman talk show (Avengers 239).

Here's the bracket

Here's the other matchups

Mr. Miracle has been added by multiple requests, but I forgot who I removed.

Superman would beat She-Hulk. Superman has the Strength, Speed, Durability advantage over She Hulk. Also Superman has the advantage of flight over She-Hulk. Superman could speed blitz She Hulk and KO her.

Superman advances to the next round

Superman for the win.

He can lift at least millions of tonnes - so he if hundreds of times stronger than She-hulk.

He durability mena that She-hulks best punches would do little to him as he can take nukes without a problem.

His speed would enable him to attack hundreds of times before she-hulk even realised he had moved. This speed would also enable him to dodge her attacks anyway.

He can fly - she cannot. His flight speed would also enable him to do a move through attack on her at tens of thousands of mph that would literally cut het in half.

Finally his heat vision is sufficiently hot to cut through her.
