Poll: Battle of the Week: Superman vs Supergirl and Powergirl (57 votes)

Superman 51%
Supergirl and Powergirl 40%
Too Close to Call 9%
No Caption Provided

Rules

  • Combatants are in character.
  • This is a random encounter (no prep for either side) and both characters have standard gear. Post Crisis Versions for all characters.
  • They're fighting in a generic city setting. It takes place during the day and they start roughly 100 feet apart and visible. Everything in the city (let's say the city is the size of Manhattan and surrounded by ocean) is on limits.
  • Incapacitation, knockout, BFR (battlefield removal, which means knocking someone so far away that the fight cannot continue in the very near future) or death all count as elimination. Making a tactical retreat counts as a loss, too. "What's a tactical retreat?" It's leaving the fight with the intention of not returning to the battle in the immediate future. Going to another spot in the environment to catch your breath for a moment or two or for a tactical advantage is not a tactical retreat.
  • Treating everyone else in the debate with respect is a sign of a good debater. If you think someone's saying something that just isn't true, go ahead and stick to the facts to point out why. There's no need at all to drop insults just because you disagree with someone. This is just talking about a fictional fight, there's no need for immaturity and mudslinging about fan fic.
  • If you think the votes aren't going how they should, making an informative post about why a character is being underestimated and spreading the word is far more useful than complaining.
  • One more thing: you don't need to write an essay to have your post highlighted in Friday's article. Sometimes concise posts can be way more effective than a flood of paragraphs. Viner posts that stand out will be included at the end.
  • Votes last till late Friday, and the votes will be posted in the OP to see where combatants stand by Friday. Votes do not determine who wins, only who the majority at the time sides with.

Special thanks to @k4tzm4n for allowing me and other users to continue making these battle of the week threads.

Unless you take statements into account, Clark is blatantly superior to both of them in every category.

This is like 2 teenage girls Vs a trained grown man, except they are super powered beings who heal, so one lucky hit isn't going to matter much.

By feats superman blows them both out of water in almost every category. A serious blow from superman should do significant damage.

However in character could hinder superman as he'd most likely hold back against them.

I've defended Supergirl and Power Girl in a CaV about this topic in the past, and I still shall.

i'm still not sure where to vote on this one... my inclination is to side with Clark but his morals regarding Supergirl (and, admittedly to a lesser extent, Powergirl) have come up more than a few times.

Lets see, two characters nearly same level vs one guy, and those outfits they wear.... yeah the chicks win. Ends in... you know.

I'm sure superman is stronger but I doubt the gap is meant to be that big. Superman might have higher end feats but I would imagine that is due to more appearances.

There is a chance for the Duo to win. But scaling This same duo vs Diana who easily beat them I'm giving the majority to Clark

PG isn't a teen tho

She's supposed to be an adult Supergirl, but her showings are lower. I found someone who looks exactly like Powergirl in real life, pretty much an exact clone of her: https://instagram.com/theallamericanbadgirl?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=qv75q2f1p79h

Um, how on earth does he "lolstomp"?

Lol Superqueer aint stomping sh1t. Duo wins easily

Supermans feats literaly trump both of them in every category by a long mile. If morals are of superman obliterates both

Superman pulls the win, though his morals make this a very close fight.

I agree. And I think the advantage any team has over any individual, in terms of attacks from multiple angles at once, using multiple kinds of attacks, etc. is often overlooked.

I'm going with Superman, the only real advantages I believe the team has on him are skill and numbers, but his physicals should be good enough to overcome that. It won't be a stomp though considering he has morals here, so he's likely to hold back at first. That being said, due to those morals limiting what he'll do in the beginning the biggest reason I don't say the team overwhelms him early on is because Clark's durability is pretty insane, so he should be able to take what they can dish out long enough to quit messing around and secure the win!

Superman. He is superior to both of them in virtually every way.

Superman vs Supergirl & Powergirl - Superman, mid diff

Wonder Woman vs Supergirl & Powergirl - Could go either way, both could win in a High Diff battle.

@thehercules:

How about Superman vs WW/SG or WW/PG?

Superman vs WW/SG - If team has perfect team work, Supergirl is strong enough to keep Clark busy while Diana use her magic weapons and etc! Team High diff

Superman vs WW/PG - Clark High diff, PG is not as impressive as Supergirl in my opinion.
