One of the most popular crossover battles is with Superman and The Hulk. It’s common that this fight is based solely on favoritism instead of the physical facts which determines the winner. Primarily, both character could be evenly matched when it comes to strength, durability and longevity to a certain degree. Both characters have evolved in power since their origins but who is really the strongest?
Superman has greater speed than The Hulk, along with his additional powers of flight, heat vision and super breath. These powers are manifested by Superman’s cells absorbing yellow sunlight. If Superman were to take this battle into the air or space, the battle would be in favor to Superman. The Hulk’s momentum can only produce results if he is grounded. Superman is vulnerable to kryptonite and magic but in this fight neither would be available at The Hulk’s disposal.
The Hulk’s strength is produced through his uncontrollable rage, which is due to Bruce Banner exposure to gamma radiation. The more he gets angry the stronger he becomes. Despite not being able to fly, have x-ray or heat vision, the Hulk’s adaptable durability allows him to withstand these powers that Superman may use against him. Superman’s super speed and strength combined would throw Hulk in a blind rage, for fighting a strong and quicker opponent would frustrate and anger him. The Hulk is most vulnerable when he is in the state of Bruce Banner, where Superman and Clark Kent is one in the same….
Over the years, both characters have evolved to different levels of power which respectfully makes both characters the top of their class in the Marvel and DC Universe. When heroes battle each other, it’s a test of strength and honor not winner or loser in most cases. Since this crossover battle is so popular among comic fans, how come Marvel and DC haven’t created a film adaptation of the comic? Until that time and thanks to Michael Habjan, comic fans can get an excellent perspective of how such a battle could happen…..
