I think it could go either way unless someone can show something that will put Icon above Blue marvel, because from what I saw of Icons recent appearance in JLA He (Icon) didn't seem that strong because when he punched superman he hurt his wrist.


Has anyone read his mini? I tried couldn't get pass the 3rd issue.

Wonder Woman has beat Superman and hurt her hand punching Mongul Sr's face, I don't think that makes you weak. Icon went up against Supes and Blue Marvel against Sentry/ Anti man. Icon was able to stand up against a stronger foe which is the only thing we can go by. Yes I'm saying Superman is stronger than Sentry.

I think Icon is more powerful than Adam but he really  sucks as a character.

Icon wins. He's stronger than Blue Marvel and would be unaffected by Blue Marvel's anti-matter blasts for the sole fact that Icon possesses the ability to manipulate Positron energy (which is the anti-matter counterpart of electrons). As a result, it would come down to physical blows and fighting skills.

He fought Superman in World's Collide, a canon crossover that was later responsible for bringing Milestone and DC together in the same universe. Icon would have to be very close or equal to Superman.

Icon is assuming that Superman is as strong as his movie counterpart (he's not), which is the reason as to why he thinks Superman is stronger. Sadly, that Superman that he's fighting is Post-Crisis, and cannot move planets. As a result, they could more than likely be equal to each other.

Rift stopped the fight, stating that neither of them would yield to one another. It's the last scan.

Icon is on par with superman or abit more powerful.

Blue marvel is more powerful then icon looking at his bio and stats.

Blue marvel should and could win most of the time.

He only loses or stalemates if he is having a bad day OR IF HE IS NOT WELL PREPARED.

i was looking at blue marvel stats and bio and he is more powerful then superman .Blue marvel is stronger.He IS as strong as a vastly enraged hulk or stronger.

Meaning his strength could exceed the hulk.By the way i am talking about post-crisis and new52 superman and recent vastly enraged hulk is stronger then modern superman.The sentry too.

Gladiator is closer to superman prime level then superman level AT FULL POWER IF YOU LOOK AT POWERGRID. Superman prime and dealing with his own powers is only really the at the very top of high top tier,just like king hyperion,anti-matter man and blue marvel.

I say stalemate because both are immensely powerful and both are extremely smart and mentally flexible in combat.

Icon may have the edge though because he can charge his blows to make them even more powerful and create sheilds. BM has, from what I have seen, never done this. This is the only time energy based attacks will come into play.

But BM does have more feats of strength, defeating Hyperion, fighting the avengers and sentry, and beating anti man

I will say at least Icon had a decent number of solo series issues to work with. I saw some on Amazon and I am planning on buying them.

I have a few issues of his ongoing. He doesn't seem to have a lot of feats outside of fighting superman. All though I here he gets more powerful later in his series.

what are you talking about can I see where he uses that energy as a blast or construct or use it at a photonic level like blue marvel. all adom has to do is infuse icon's body with with anti matter photon and no more icon.

When has Blue Marvel ever done this?

Icon has used his Positron energy as a blast against Superman, and they hurt him.

I also find it hard to believe Blue Marvel could actually hurt Icon with anti-matter blasts or constructs, since his body is already composed of an energy form from an anti-matter particle.

I'm going to saying Adam. The Superman that Icon seems to be fighting comes off as Byrne's Superman and if we're really going to scale that Superman's feats aren't that impressive.

Brashear has feats to stand on his own.

This all depends on how strong the Superman Icon was fighting is. My money for now is on Icon (as most Supermen > Sentry).

Both seem Kick@$$ to the fullest extent, their blows would shake the world. GREAT match-up.
