Spawn vs Ghost Rider

image

Spawn and Ghost Rider is among many popular crossover topics within the comic community, mainly because of their similarities. Both characters wield supernatural powers originating from Hell through a pact with the Devil(Mephisto/ Malebolgia). Later through trial and error of their ways, both characters broke free from their hellish influence and used Hell’s power to free their own souls. They have major differences that determine the outcome of such a battle. Let’s dig in…

Al Simmons was recruited to become the general of Hell’s Army. As general, his power would come second to his master Malebolgia. Spawn’s supernatural powers stems from his symbiotic armor. The armor is a living organism which is infused in Al Simmons’s nervous system, allowing him to control the symbiotic armor with his thoughts, conscious or unconscious. The armor is filled with necroplasm, which has a functioning concept like Green Power Ring. The armor responds and morphs to the will and imagination of Al Simmons. On Earth, Spawn’s magical powers are in limited supply, so his symbiotic armor feeds off evil or dark energy.The bigger the source, the more power it can consume and use without depleting its own power reserves. Battling Ghost Rider would be perfect for Spawn because Ghost Rider’s powers and abilities are supernatural and evil in origin. This battle would keep Spawn fully powered enough to use his magical abilities at maximum potential.

Johnny Blaze was destined to become agent of evil as the Ghost Rider. The Rider’s existence becomes possible from the union between Johnny Blaze and Zarathos. Zarathos is a demonic being in servitude to Mephisto as Violator is with Malebogia. This union is also similar to the Phoenix Force bonding with Jean Grey thus creating Phoenix and Dark Phoenix. Johnny Blaze can revert back and forth as the Ghost Rider at will, when before, was in the presence of evil. With demonic power at his disposal, Ghost Rider can control the mystical fire of Hell, which he channels through weapons or vehicles, making them supernaturally more powerful than before. Seemingly with no limit to his power, Ghost Rider is considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe.

Ultimately this battle comes down to the men who are hosts to the power, Al Simmons and Johnny Blaze. Al Simmons’s training and service to his country made him an excellent assassin. Johnny Blaze is a stunt performer, where his mental focus is on surviving death-defying feats than any physical combat training. Spawn has evolved to his higher form, Omega Spawn. This results in unlimited power on both the mortal and immortal planes, making himself third in power next to the power of Heaven and Hell. Ghost Rider is considered one of most powerful in his universe, but his god like potential is not fully realize because of the combat mentality of his mortal host. Would Ghost Rider stand a better chance against Omega Spawn when united with the Venom symbiote and the Red Hulk, or will he fall just as hard under the might of Omega Spawn??

Loki vs Dr. Doom

dr doom vs loki

The Asgardian Frost Giant Prince vs The Ruler of Latveria is a topic of speculation among comic fans. These two villains are matched up because first they both have a desire to obtain rulership of Asgard and the power it contains. Dr. Doom is looked as the supreme mortal who can outwit and obtain powers from cosmic beings or sources. Loki is a lower level god who is only successful in dominating beings who are mentally and physically weaker than himself. In this case, the bridge between Loki and Dr. Doom is relatively small….

Dr. Doom’s greatest power is his mind. Since his youth,  he desired to acquire knowledge and power for himself and he succeeded. Dr. Doom is considered to be one of the most powerful minds in the Marvel Universe. As such, he can create any device needed to give himself the upper hand in any situation, even to rival the technical genius of Batman, Iron Man and Reed Richards. Throughout the comics, Dr. Doom’s taste for power has been taken to extraordinary heights: becoming wielder of the Infinity Gauntlets and taking on cosmos powers such as Galactus and Silver Surfer. Dr. Doom’s downfall lies with attaining too much power. His arrogance blinds him creating more setbacks than failures.

Loki is also known to have a genius level intellect as well as being a master sorcerer in his realm of Asgard. Since Loki is of Asgard and The Frost Giants, he is physically superior to Dr. Doom. Loki has a desire to acquire more power like Dr. Doom, but his child like manner wouldn’t allow him to have a defined purpose for his power other than challenging his half brother Thor. This results in his defeat and punishment by his father Odin. Loki’s arrogance as a higher being blinds the fact that mere mortals could beat him at his own game every time.

In this battle, Loki is more than likely to underestimate the power of Dr. Doom because he is mortal. Dr. Doom is a strategist and mentally would dominate Loki. If need be, could take over the body Loki, if physically beaten.  With the battle history of the two villains, you would likely find a DoomBot in battle than the real Doom. Loki more than likely control a being such as the Destroyer to fight the battle for him or even the Hulk. Who do you think would win in such a battle?

Red Lantern Corps: Dark Phoenix

What if…….Atrocitus was able to recruit the Dark Phoenix to his Red Lantern Corps?! The Phoenix Force is an entity described as the child of the universe, free-spirited and dangerous if not properly controlled or guided on the right path. With this power, Atrocitus could be on the same power levels as the White and Black Lantern Corps

Atrocitus believes he could attract the Phoenix Force to his will by releasing The Butcher.  An older entity could train the younger power on how powerful an emotion like rage is. This is a similar method Atrocitus learned from observing Sith Lords before recruiting them. To achieve his plan, Atrocitus traveled to the time period in the Marvel Universe right after Dark Phoenix consumed a star, killing billions of people in the process. The destruction left in the aftermath fascinated Atrocitus, believing that such devastation could empower his Lantern Corps greatly. Atrocitus intercepted the Phoenix in space flight, releasing the Butcher from the Red Power Battery. The two entities clashed in a cosmic spectacle, becoming familiar with each other, learning and adapting to one another.

As the two entities dance in a cosmic showcase,  Jean Grey’s body hovers in space, waiting for the Phoenix Force to return to it’s host.  Atrocitus used this time to slip the Red Power Ring onto Jean’s finger, sealing the bond between the two entities. Doing this, Atrocitus believed if he can’t have direct control over the Phoenix Force, he could at least have control over its host.

Sensing bondage, the Phoenix Force lashed wildly like an animal being caged. Anger and rage began to grow rapidly in the entity as it struggled. The energy given off by the Phoenix Force was so tremendous, it’s power funneled down to each power ring of the Red Lantern Corps. Members of the Red Lantern Corps no longer had the weakness of blind rage, now that it was consumed by the Phoenix Force. In exchange, each member developed mental clarity strong enough to create the most powerful constructs among all the other Lantern Corps. The Phoenix Force also grants members immortality, as long as the Phoenix Force remains confined in the Red Power Battery.

Also, there is no longer the need to charge the power ring, for the Phoenix Force keeps the rings charged indefinitely. When realizing that rage is just one of many emotions of the Spectrum, The Phoenix Force gained a curiosity for the other Lantern Corps and vowed to conquer them all. With the power of two cosmic entities, can the Red Lantern Corps be stopped in their quest for domination of the Universe?
