This is basically an idea I ripped off from some old threads Owie made a long time ago with the recent street king thread. Basically I put characters who are below spider-man level but have certain abilities or weapons to put them above your standard human in comics.

Basically these are a series of one on one fights, and the winner of one round will move on to the next round until there is only one character left standing. An example here is if wolverine beats deadpool, and kraven beats beast, Kraven will end up fighting wolverine in the next fight. And the winner of that moves, and so on and so fourth until only one person is left standing

If you don't recognize someone look them up on comicvine. Or you can just skip that round if you prefer.

It ends Black Panther or Blade vs. Deadpool IMO. Both beat Deadpool in a good fight.

My pick for semi-finals would be:

  • Ultimate Captain America vs. Miles Morales
  • Luther Strode vs. Beast

Overall I think it'll be Ultimate Captain America in the finals, and I think a convincing argument could be made for him vs Beast or Strode.

Thanks for reading,

I think it would be Black Panther vs Ultimate Captain America, and Luther Strode vs Deadpool. Then Black Panther vs Luther Strode in which case I would think Black Panther wins via Vibranium Armor.

Neat idea.

I see Wolverine and Blade ending up fighting each other. At which point I'd give the slight majority to Wolverine due to being more skilled.

I see it as coming down to Strode and Black Panther, where I'd favour T'Challa as the victor due to his weaponry and durability.

Under these conditions with this tech he is below Peter IMO. His force field wont protect him from Peters strength (maybe if Peter is holding back), his cloaking device can be countered with spider-sense. And as skilled and fast as T'challa is I think peter would beat him eventually.

Different debate for another time though.

It ends Black Panther or Blade vs. Deadpool IMO. Both beat Deadpool in a good fight.

Who do you think is more likely to win between Blade and black panther?

I think it would be Black Panther vs Ultimate Captain America, and Luther Strode vs Deadpool. Then Black Panther vs Luther Strode in which case I would think Black Panther wins via Vibranium Armor.

Neat idea.

It isn't confirmed if current black panther has the vibranium suit so for the time being I think its best to assume he doesn't have it until Hickman confirms it.

His current gear are energy daggers, cloaking device which makes him invisible, a teleporter (all though I took that way here), and his current costume is insulated to electrical attacks. He also has a force field projector:

Its only low level superhuman stats though. HIckman has said he is "maybe slightly stronger but the knowledge is the real get".

@jashro44: I'd say... Black panther since his intelligence might push him over the edge. Blade does have a great counter to any vibranium though with his adamantium swords.

Just encase there's an confusion black panther doesn't have his vibranium suit here since it hasn't been confirmed to be carrying yet.

Round 1: Black Panther (although this is really a hard one, Miles is great but Panther is almost impossible to beat, esp with some tech), Aphrodite, Ult. Cap, Deathstroke, Deadpool, Beast (current Beast? this seems like the easiest win here), Luthor Strode, Batman.

Round 2: Argh. I just saw morals are off. I may reconsider the above, think about a morals-off Miles or Cap...no, too late...just go on...OK: Aphrodite, Deathstroke, Beast, Luthor Strode (due to HF).

Round 3: Aphrodite (maybe? I've only read 1 comic so I am guessing the hell out of this), Luthor Strode.

Winner: Strode?

@owie: Is beast currently more powerful than he was before? I know he went through a mutation but I figured he didn't have a lot of showings. I sort of just assumed he was the same.

I meant vs his original human form, where he was about a 1 or 2 tonner. In any of his blue furry forms his strength is debatable, but he's at least a 10-tonner (some people argue up to 25 but from quickly scanning around right now most wikis list him at 10) and way more agile than anyone else here other than Miles. His fighting feats aren't always amazing but from a purely physical standpoint he's pretty high for this level.

Although like I just said his actual fights are not always great. He actually had a morals-off fight with Nightcrawler just a little while ago that ended up fairly close. There was a lot of context in there, and they were both hurt from various other sources, and Nightcrawler can of course teleport, but still.

I suppose Beast's physicals are close enough to Spidey's that it makes sense to match Kraven up against him. Although with morals off, it could end up like Back in Black.

@owie: I see. And yea I agree beast on paper is beyond this tier but his fighting feats haven't been impressive aside from a few showings against wolverine. All though I think those are the result of wolverine holding back (this can be backed up further by the fact that a morals off wolverine one shotted beast).

It's likely Panther, Miles, or Cap vs Deadpool or Cap. I'd honestly say Panther or Miles have the best chance of taking it all.

I definitely understand where you're coming from. He tends to be more of a scientist than a fighter these days, so he doesn't really rack up the feats. But I just looked around to see if I could find any old feats, and found this respect thread. While it mostly focuses on old stuff, some of it is decent.

(One caveat--a lot of the strength feats in this thread are from when he was with the original X-Factor, and in his human form--he had his strength amped by Apocalypse then, so those don't count.)

Some that do though: being able to knock down or flip Juggernaut on a few occasions, despite his power of not being able to be moved; knocking down Living Monolith (he kind of tripped him, but still it would take a fair amount of strength); causing shockwaves from hitting the ground; knocking out Frenzy; knocking out an early Wonder Man; putting a good beating on Danger.

Still, I totally agree that he doesn't have a lot of fighting skill.

Yea I feel him and Miles stat wise are beyond this tier but IMO Kraven and the like can contend with them due to skill. I think all though those 2 are power wise beyond everyone else, the others are more competent.
