Poll Position: Ultron vs Brainiac

This weeks “Poll Position”  pits Marvel’s and DC’s two resident robotic evil  geniuses against each other!  I most say I have a hard time coming up with a winner on this one folks. When looking at the two side by side comparing powers and ability the two are “mostly” identical in power set. I do have to give the edge in brain power to Brainiac as I believe he is  the more intelligent of the two robots however I give the edge in durability to Ultron and his Adamantium body.

In the end I think this is too close to call and the likely outcome would be a draw. The two battling to a stalemate forming an uneasy alliance while plotting to dominating the other and just waiting for the chance to betray the other and take control! So who do you pick in this battle, Ultron, Brainiac, or do you like myself think they will tie ? Leave a comment below with your opinion!.

  1. “All I want is pants. A decent pair of pants!”

    Props if you get the reference. :)

  2. It’s difficult to tell. Ultron exists primarily as software, able to seize control of any number of networked systems. Brainiac has access to advanced technology and inter-stellar travel. He’s also much smarter, not hampered by madness or obsession. Still, if Ultron has access to alien tech and can get over his fixation on Dr. Henry Pym, maybe he could pull ahead. If they fight each other at the same time, it’s a draw. If Brainiac strikes first, he wins.

  3. How long has Braniac been going to the gym? Pretty buff for a robot.

  4. @Renxin:
    Not sure about this, but…
    “Solomon Grundy want pants too!”

  5. I’m calling it a draw, unless Braniac can learn and somehow exploit Ultron’s obsession with females (organic or robotic) to his advantage.

  6. Can’t Brainie possess people?
    Got to go with him!

  7. Ultron’s nemesis: Ant-man*
    Brainiac’s nemesis: Superman

    i think that speaks for itself.

    *AKA Giant-man, Yellowjacket, Goliath, etc.

    No kidding. If Brainiac can’t out-think Ultron, he can just knock Ultron out with an uppercut or a left hook.

  9. If you look them up on Wiki they are relatively the same. Ultron is made of adamantium which is cool but only has advanced physical attributes whereas brainiac has same physical capacity of superman. Brainiacs physical body makes him vulnerable to disease, sickness, age and whatnot but brainiac can travel time. I hate it when characters can do that by the way. If I was a bad guy and I couldn’t beat you Id just travel back to when you were in the womb and kick your mother in the gut, just me though. I think it adds a certain unbeatableness to it. It also gets hard to keep up in a story line when the timeline keeps changing from time travelers messing with things. Anyways…I would say this is a close draw but if there had to be a winner as much as I like marvel I might have to go with brainiac.

  10. TOOL: …but brainiac can travel time. I hate it when characters can do that by the way. … It also gets hard to keep up in a story line when the timeline keeps changing from time travelers messing with things. P>

    I agree. Aren’t there some all-powerful Time Lords or something in the DCU that could close that particular plot device? It’s way too messy…

  11. I like Ultron’s look much better, but, let’s face it…
    Brainiac is the one who shrunk the city of Kandor down so small, he could stick it in a bottle! “Aww, Ultron! You’re so CUTE in that teeny-weeny adamantium body!” ;)
    Spidercow, yes, DC has had a LOT of such all-powerful time lords, who never seem to be able to do very much when DC wants to Re-re-re-reboot their entire Universe…
    As of “The New 52″, nothing seems to be the same, anymore, which is why I’m mostly buying Indie comics, at the moment…

    Well, there’s the problem then. DC needs some cataclysmic Reboot Event to wipe out all their redundant timelords. They’re clearly getting in each other’s way.
    Maybe there are so many because it’s some kind of union reg.

    Oh, and is it just me, or does the Brainiac above seem to be wearing elevator shoes?
