Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Not reading any posts. Don't want any spoilers. But...just got this today. Be back in a couple hours!


Umm...wow! The first one kinda left me underwhelmed. This one...totally whelmed me. I've been whelmed.

This did what Spiderman 3 of the Tobey films couldn't do. Two villians (three if you want to count Rhino there at the end) with a fully fleshed out story. Serious, but still had its humorous parts. I dare say this just became my favorite Spiderman film.

And I never really cared for Jamie Foxx. His performance early in the film did little to change that. But his performance once he became Electro was actually...dang!

And Gwen...Emma totally nailed it. Sad there at the end, but I knew that was coming. There's very few continuities where Gwen lives it would seem. They really did her death justice here at least. The only way it could've possibly been better is if it had been off the George Washington Bridge.

And I know Dubstep is a real love it or hate it thing, but I actually like the soundtrack too.

Edit 2
*looks at a few of the other posts* Hmm, looks like I'm in a minority here. Think I'll just back out the way I came. Laters!

Man, I never saw this in the theatre, and I have only heard negative to blah things about it, but I couldn't resist buying the blu-ray on sale for twenty bucks. 


MAN am I happy I did. This was a GREAT movie. I cannot fathom why people hate it so much. It doesn't follow the modern trend of GO GO GO CONSTANT ACTION, it develops characters, it has a great love story (someone was whining about the "will they won't they" aspect, but it didn't feel like that to me. It had purpose and was well-done) and the action is really cool. It feels like just enough of every element. Even the goblin build-up was gradual enough that it didn't feel as sudden as I thought it would be at the end. 


The villains were used well and enjoyable to see in action. Pre-Rhino and Rhino were lots of fun to watch. Paul Italian-name really had fun with that role. 


Spider-man himself? AWESOME. That costume and that attitude were INCREDIBLY entertaining. 


This movie just topped the Raimi films for me, and I really wasn't expecting that to happen. 



EDIT: My only question: I may have missed it, but how did Harry find out Peter was Spider-man?

Yeah. He put two and two together when he saw Gwen with Spider-Man.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I guess they do set that up early enough in the movie with the elevator scene between Harry and Gwen. 


I really, really liked this film. I just went back and read most of the criticisms in this thread and...well, they just don't work for me. Not gonna argue anyone's opinions on a movie, but I feel like I wasted half an hour reading a lot of those arguments against it.

It's an enjoyable movie and as you say, the spiderman bits are, well, amazing. It'as just the whole 'Parker Parents' side plot that pads the film out in a way that doesn't matter and I generally didn't care for that spoilt it for me.

It's a Newcomic (apparently)

I enjoyed those bits well enough. And I thought they were kinda important to the whole "this is why the spider venom took to Peter so well" thing. Which ties into the goblin plot pretty heavily.

Apparently Sony and Marvel were in discussions to share the Spider-Man rights, but they fell through.  It would have possibly had Spider-Man to show up in Civil War, or even for Marvel to take over making the movies and Sony would just be the publisher.
