Poll Position: More fisticuffs

In honor of the upcoming "Thor" movie, I thougth we'd give the God of Thunder the same treatment as Wolverine in our last poll. To wit:


Verily and forsooth, mortal, we shall taketh our discussion to the ends of the jump!

  • Doomsday: He killed Superman, but can he kill a god? I don't know, but I'd like to see him try.
  • Superman: I feel like I have to put this in, because come on, he's Superman and people expect it. But I admit, the only way this would be interesting is if Thor is totally into it for the fun of finding a worthy foe, and just unleashes himself until finally he pisses Clark off. There aren't a whole lot of people in the DC Universe Superman can afford to get angry at, but I think Thor could handle it.
  • Green Lantern: I don't honestly think this would be all that close or competitive a matchup, as willpower will only get you so far against a god, you'd think. Plus, after it was all over you just know DC would make Thor put on the ring because OMGGodLantern!!1! To which I can only say, and I quote, "Bah".
  • Aquaman: Mostly I would want to see Aquaman get smushed like a bug. "Try and read the thoughts of the fish in this tornado I'm throwing at you, Fish Boy!"
  • Darkseid: This one I like. I like the angle of the New Gods teaming up with an Old God against their greatest foe, I like Thor having the chance to pit himself against the worst Apokalypse has to offer, I just like everything about it. Plus the crazy outfits on the New Genesis gang are that rarest of thing in the DC Universe -- costumes just as wacky as Thor's.

Those are my thoughts on it, but who would you like to see in that matchup?

    I vote Darkseid.

    And by the way, Heromachinists, today is Jeff’s birthday. I know he’s glowering at me from across many states for spilling the beans, but show the man some birthday love!

    I want Green Lantern. Not just because I’d like to see Hal Jordan pancaked, but I want to put to bed that whole “Most Powerful Weapon In The Universe thing.

    Greek God Vs Egyptian God FTW

    Pretty sure Thor can beat any singlle one of these. But he could only beat DD with Odinforce and Rune Magic, which is why I chose Doomsday.

    I want to see the god of thunder fight the hero of the ocean. Talk about one sided fights…ZAP!
    More one sided than superman versus Dracula!

    I’d have to say Darkseid.

    I can hardly wait to see the Thor movie.

    I’ve been a Marvel fan since 1962 and also a long time Marvel fan fiction writer:

    I’m also an Australian science fiction writer and the Norse gods Odin and Thor are featured in just a couple of my science fiction stories:





    I also have a new novella “Soldier of the Brell” coming out soon.


  9. Worf says:

    Jeff, you forgot one that I’ve been wondering about for years… Thor vs. Captain Marvel. We know cap can just keep yelling SHAZAM and take care of Superman, but what happens when he goes up against the GOD of thunder. Will that lightning and thunder come down to strike its own god or will we see captain marvel get the pummeling he deserves?

  10. William A. Peterson says:

    I voted for Darkseid, of course…
    Thor versus Supes?
    As folks have pointed out, Mjolnir IS a Magic Weapon!
    On the other hand, it’s a Melee weapon, and Supes, if he chose to do so, could probably fry Thor with Heat Vision from about a zillion miles away…
    And, Goldilocks ain’t really all that tough!
    Okay, the JMS version of Thor IS that tough, but the JMS version of Aquaman just beat out Cthulhu, so consider the source… :->
    I agree with Worf…
    Thor versus the Big Red Cheese could be interesting!

  11. TopHat says:

    Thor vs Cap Marvel happened once in the godawful DC vs Marvel crossover. No idea how that went, but it’s irrelivent. Modern Thor pounds him into hamburger-meat.

  12. The Imp says:

    Thor vs. Aquaman.

    Arthur Curry FTW, baby.
