Marvel vs Capcom: Who Has The Best Comic And Arcade-Accurate Fighting Techniques?

 

MARVEL VS CAPCOM

*In celebration of Father’s Day, we go over the best fighting techniques in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite for PS4.

THE TEENAGE-FRIENDLY ARCADE CROSSOVER

Marvel vs Capcom.

In the popular Marvel vs Capcom series, players compete against opponents in teams of two or three. Originally, the inspiration for the series was X-Men: Children of The Atom and Marvel Super-Heroes. In the game, players use characters from Marvel and Capcom

For parents wondering what games to buy for their teenagers or for spouses looking for gifts for their husbands or children, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for example, has been rated PG-13 and up. Though there is intense violence, suggestive language and revealing attire.

In the recent Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Marvel and Capcom baddies Ultron and Sigma attempt to use the Infinity Stones in order to merge both universes and rid their new world of organic life.

Though the game has upped the series, an IGN review criticized the character’s unimaginative design, the slow gameplay and the lack of creative storyline. Nevertheless, the visuals, scenery and the fighting styles are sufficient entertainment.

Since we are interested in the fighting game, let’s rate the main characters’ fighting techniques and how they compare to the arcade or comic. For the most part, we are interested in strength, speed, and damage.

So, from our video above, let’s find out which Marvel or Capcom character has the most arcade- or comic-accurate fighting technique.

3. COMIC-ACCURATE: DOCTOR STRANGE: EYE OF AGAMOTTO

Generally, Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto is his final attack against cosmic beings and Skyfathers. For instance, the comics showed Doctor Strange use the Eye of Agamotto to decisively end Wanda Maximoff’s attacks on the Avengers in Disassembled.

As matter of fact, this is very impressive since Scarlet Witch has great reality-warping power on a planetary scale due to her Chaos Magic. In the game, Doctor Strange’s attack is his signature technique.

Though it generates only 17 hits, it consumes about half of his life bar, which shows a great amount of damage. Given that it is a video game, comic characters are often nerfed in order by reducing the damage of their signature techniques.

Nevertheless, the final attack is more or less accurate as a finishing move.

VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE

3. ARCADE-ACCURATE: RYU: SHO-RYU-KEN

Generally, Ryu’s hado is portrayed has one of the most powerful attacks. Really, it qualifies as a hyper-move. At the same time, for the most part the attack looks more like a kamehameha wave. In fact, the hado-ken signature technique is actually a really flying fireball.

In the gameplay, the sho-ryu-ken, is more accurate in terms of fighting and even allows for multiple punches with both hands. Though the execution and fighting is impressive, the damage of the technique is disappointing.

In fact, it only deals 3 hits though with a fourth of the life bar in damage.

So, in terms of power and execution, the signature technique is impressive though the damage is disappointing.

VERDICT: LEAST ARCADE-ACCURATE

2. COMIC-ACCURATE: THOR: LIGHTNING BLASTS

Perhaps, the most impressive fighting technique in terms of damage, is Thor’s lightning blast. In Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Thor does not need to charge up his lightning strikes. Instead, he either raises his hammer high, or strikes his opponent into the air with Mjolnir.

In Infinity, Thor strikes Thanos at the head with a full lightning blast, resulting only in damaging the Titan’s armor. However, in the gameplay, Thor is able to damage more than half the life bar in just 3 hits. Impressive!

VERDICT: MOST COMIC-ACCURATE

2. ARCADE-ACCURATE: CHUN-LI’S LIGHTNING-KICK

In the gameplay, the adaptations to Chun-Li’s moves are the most impressive. Though her Spinning-Bird Kick is very different from the original arcade and really not impressive. However, with the Lightning Kick, a player can deal up to 15 hits.

What separates this attack from the rest is that the signature technique is both ground- and air-based which can quickly turn the tide in a stalemate. However, the drawback is that the attack deals only a sixth of a character’s life bar.

rooflemonger

VERDICT: MORE ARCADE-ACCURATE

1. COMIC-ACCURATE: VENOM’S WEBBING

At the top, is one of Venom’s lesser known signature moves. For the source comics, Venom often entombs his enemies in webbing for various uses. In addition, the symbiote allows him to shape-shift and attack his opponents with tendrils.

In our game, Venom can damage more than half of an opponent’s life in just 8 hits with the attack. Generally, the attack displays strength, speed and damage. For this reason, it’s at the top of our list.

VERDICT: BEST COMIC-ACCURATE

DC VS MARVEL

IN TEAM-UPS AND CROSSOVERS

“A CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS”

JLA/Avengers. DC Comics.

In honor of George Perez, let’s look at a classic DC/Marvel crossover.

Furthermore, our top-rated Formidability Ranking uses four central Fighting Skills to settle the debate.

Let’s read our ranking.

 

ADVERTISE WITH US

JLA/AVENGERS IS CANON TO DC AND MARVEL

JLA/AVENGERS

In the classic inter-company crossover JLA/Avengers (2004), both super-teams assemble to take on a threat that threatens the Omniverse. Particularly, the series was so successful that the JLA: Syndicate Rules established the crossover to be canon to the New Earth continuity.

In contests of champions, the Grandmaster and Metron task both teams with the responsibility to assemble six items of power from each universe.

Namely, from the DC Universe: Green Lantern’s Power Battery, the Book of Eternity, the Orb of Ra, the items of the Demons Three, the Spear of Destiny and Psycho Pirate’s Medusa Mask.

From the Marvel Universe: the Ultimate Nullifier, the Evil Eye of Avalon, the Infinity Gems, the Cosmic Cube, the Casket of Ancient Winters and the Wand of Watoomb.

JLA/AVENGERS #2

In JLA/Avengers #2, the Leaguers are leading 6-5. In a titanic clash, the JLA and the Avengers face off for the Cosmic Cube. On Savage Land, a knock-out drag-out slugfest follows. Let’s rank the main contestants in the battle in terms of the Power Hierarchy.

Database Comics

QUALITY OPPONENTS

Generally, our formidability takes into account a character’s quality of opponents. Using this hierarchy, we can formulate a Power Hierarchy. Namely, it is the following:

Peak Human, Assassin, Metahuman, Criminal Mastermind/Team-Wrecker, Warrior, Hi-Tech Genius/Enhanced, Political Leader, Demon or Monster/Supernatural Being, Champion, Cosmic Being, Skyfather, God or Abstract.

Before we rank the JLA and Avengers, let’s list some rules.

  1. First, only beings below God or Abstract are included. God or Abstract include Galactus, Eternity, Living Tribunal, Beyonder, One-Above-All.
  2. Since we focus on battles, we will go by power levels.
  3. We are rating power levels only in issue #2.
  4. Since only the major battles are included, not all members of both teams are included.

Let’s rank our JLA and Avengers.

The Cosmic Beings

SUPERMAN

Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%

SUPERMAN IS A COSMIC BEING

Really, Superman‘s power levels are off the charts in the issue.

To this end, he ranks as Cosmic Being because he stops Thor’s hammer strike with his left hand.

In fact, it takes at least a Cosmic Being in order to bypass the enchantment on Thor’s Mjolnir.

Potentially, Superman could solo the Avengers team.

Indeed, it takes Hercules, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Wonder Man and Vision to put down the Man of Steel at the end of the fight.

THOR

Power Hierarchy: Champion 75%

THOR IS A CHAMPION

Really, Thor faces one of his toughest battles. First, he wades through a powerful blast of heat vision.

After Superman caught Mjolnir, he knocks him out with a powerful haymaker. Indeed, he is overwhelmed by Superman’s sheer power.

Generally, Thor ranks as a Champion since he is at least as powerful as the Avengers team.

ZATANNA

Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%

Both Zatanna and Scarlet Witch are amped by Chaos Magic.

Effectively, they are Cosmic Beings with powers of teleportation, nigh omniscience and reality-warping.

SCARLET WITCH

Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%

Both Zatanna and Scarlet Witch are amped by Chaos Magic.

Effectively, they are Cosmic Beings with powers of teleportation, nigh omniscience and reality-warping.

GREEN LANTERN

Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%

In their first match-up, Green Lantern had Photon on the ropes. As matter of fact, he caged her up in a construct.

In their second match, Photon is absorbing the Oan energy from his power ring. Fortunately, he is saved by Captain Atom.

Generally, Green Lantern is a Champion. However, he upgrades to Cosmic Being after he absorbs the energy of the Cosmic Cube.

And had he succeeded, the JLA woud have had a clean victory.

CAPTAIN MARVEL

Power Hierarchy: Champion 75%

To begin, Monica Rambeau has the power of converting her body into any energy in the electromagnetic spectrum.

Really, she is a Champion on the Avengers team and can take on any one.

Likely, she needs to adapt to the type of energy and has a limit to how much EM energy she can absorb.

Nonetheless, she is among the mightiest on the Avengers team.

The Champions

WONDER WOMAN

Power Hierarchy: Champion 75%

So far, Wonder Woman has shown she can defeat multiple Avengers. At first, she faces Hercules, Wasp and Yellowjacket.

Later, after Superman and Thor are defeated, she knocks down Yellowjacket.

Generally, Wonder Woman is a Champion in the Power Hierarchy.

GIANT MAN

Power Hierarchy: Enhanced 50%

First, Yellowjacket shrinks down to size and attacks Wonder Woman with the other Avengers.

Then, he delivers a powerful blow at increased size when Thor falls. However, Wonder Woman soon overpowers him.

With the Pym Particles, Yellowjacket is Enhanced in the Power Hierarchy.

AQUAMAN

Power Hierarchy: Champion 75%

In one instant, Aquaman defeats multiple Avengers with a sea monster.

Generally, Aquaman is a Champion in the Power Hierarchy.

AVENGERS

Power Hierarchy: Supernatural Being 67%

Generally, the Avengers add up to Hercules‘ power level, which is Supernatural Being in the Power Hierarchy.

The Peak Humans

GREEN ARROW

Power Hierarchy: Peak Human 8%

In the battle, Green Arrow and Hawkeye are in a stand-off. Though, in the end, Green Arrow has the advantage with Captain America’s help.

Generally, Green Arrow is a Peak Human in the Power Hierarchy.

HAWKEYE

Power Hierarchy: Peak Human 8%

In the battle, Green Arrow and Hawkeye are in a stand-off. Though, in the end, Captain America orders Hawkeye to stand down.

Generally, Hawkeye is a Peak Human in the Power Hierarchy.

VERDICT:

With help, the JLA won a virtual victory and the Avengers actually tied the score.

Really, lacking Flash’s Speed Force and the Avengers at full strength, the JLA are stacked with three Cosmic Beings and two Champions.

Generally, the underdog Avengers even things with better teamwork and preparation.

JLA wins a difficult fight.

In Avengers (1965) #16, the Avengers defeat the Masters of Evil. Originally, the villain team consists of Melter, Black Knight, Executioner, Enchantress and Baron Zemo. Apparently, Baron Zemo dies and is buried by Cap’ and Rick Jones. To end, Thor transports Melter, Black Knight and the Avengers to another dimension. There, Melter and Black Knight are captured. However, the Asgardians Enchantress and Executioner escape. At the next Avengers meeting, Thor is MIA.

In addition, Wasp decides to leave because of the team’s dangers. When Iron Man and Giant Man debate disbanding the Avengers, Hawkeye infiltrates the mansion. To this end, he wants membership.

ENCHANTRESS AND POWER MAN DEFEAT THE AVENGERS

In Avengers (1965) #21, Erik Josten is in the Amazon jungle. There, the former Baron Zemo agent is digging through rubble for the entrance through his lab. Since he is a wanted criminal in Europe, he hopes to repeat the experiment that created the super-powered Wonder Man. In this way, he hopes to change his fate. As fate would have it, the mischievous Enchantress views Erik in a vision and departs to his aid. There, she appears to him in the lab. Mischievously, she promises to work the machine for him.

When he gains super strength, Enchantress seduces the newly-christened Power Man to destroy the Avengers. Soon enough, Enchantress creates illusions around the city of the Avengers destroying property. When Cap’ learns of their plot, he fights Power Man. But he is no match for the super strong enemy. Afterwards, each Avenger is defeated except for Scarlet Witch. In humiliation, the Avengers are caught for trespassing and soon disband.

Plot: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Characterization: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Art: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

In comicdom, there are few legendary names. In 1968, two of Marvel comics’ biggest names collaborated on a timeless and favorite story: Legendary writer and editor Stan Lee worked with artist John Buscema to bring the classic Silver Surfer series of the period.

As matter of fact, I gave 5.0 out of 5.0 to Essential Silver Surfer, Vol. 1 (Marvel Essentials) for being a dreamy space (or earth-bound) soap opera about a god-like alien estranged among the mere mortals. Really, it does not get better than this Marvel Essential. Indeed, this is the comic genre at its best for all Marvel-ites to enjoy.

To recommend, the trade paperback format offers some of the biggest 528 pages that fans can enjoy. From the beginning, what separates Silver Surfer from other Marvel heroes is that he has no flaws, except that of human misunderstanding. Indeed, witness Surfer’s titanic battles against the Overlord, the Stranger, Loki, Spider-Man. And yes… the dreamy cover and the dramatic start of the Silver Surfer vs Thor rivalry..

DIALOGUE

In many respects, Silver Surfer’s first classic story is Shakespearean melo-drama. First, our protagonist is a melancholic character who is comfortable with monologues and long speeches. At the same time, he has the flair for the dramatic and seems to experience events in a passionate way. Indeed, witness Surfer saving a young Latino woman from war only to be rewarded with a kiss. But, lo and behold, his forsaken lover Shalla-Bal witnesses the scene from a flying spacecraft.

PLOT

Volume 1 focuses on Silver Surfer after the events of the Galactus trilogy and Fantastic Four #55-60. In fact, Silver Surfer rebelled against Galactus his master in order to save the Earth from destruction. After, Galactus punished the Sentinel by removing his space-born powers. Now, the Silver Surfer is stranded on Earth which he cannot leave due to a space barrier placed by the Devourer of Worlds. During his time on Earth, the tragic hero attempts to gain humanity’s trust and understanding but with continued failures. The plot progresses quickly and takes him to Asgard, the Netherworld and into space. Really, it does not get better than a space-faring soap opera!

VISIT THE BATTLE RANKER PAGE

CHARACTERIZATION

Where Stan Lee and John Buscema succeed is in the thrill of adventure and passion. However, what is lacking is true character evolution. In some sense, despite humanity’s hatred, it takes 18 issues for the Silver Surfer to finally change his stance towards humanity. At the same time, though a hero, he initially remains a lone hero, without a regular supporting cast.

ART

Perhaps, the art is the series’ strongest point. John Buscema’s pencils are drawn to perfection and he has produced the most imposing and welcoming Silver Surfer to date. Though a bit embellished, Buscema’s pencils draw distinctive characters. Indeed, the women tend to have curvy physiques, long hair and full lips while the men have strong arms, big hands and very proportionate physiques. Really, Buscema’s classical training appears.

VERDICT

Finally, the Marvel Essentials storyline is high spectacle. Really, Stan Lee and John Buscema make a powerful combination. As matter of fact, they work seamlessly with tight plots, unrelenting action and gorgeous panels to create a work of legend.

Definitely, this storyline is one of the greatest Marvel stories ever told. Indeed, it belongs in every Marvel-ite’s collection.

DC vs Marvel: 5 Reasons Why Superman Is Stronger Than Hulk

 
Home » Thor

DC vs Marvel

IN POWER LEVEL

SUPERMAN AND HULK HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR INFINITE STRENGTH

In 'Final Crisis: Superman Beyond' (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages.
In ‘Final Crisis: Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages. DC Comics.

At DC and Marvel, Superman and Hulk are the top two powerhouses in terms of super strength. Previously, we showcased five feats where Superman demonstrated the potential for infinite super strength.

At the same time, Hulk has shown on many occasions feats of infinite power. To find out about Hulk’s time travel feat, visit THE Marvel Universe Strength Hierarchy Ranks The Top 10 Heroes And Villains By The Potential For Infinite Strength.

Over the years, flaming wars have raged over who is the stronger: the Last Son of Krypton or the Green Behemoth. Indeed, if Superman has near-limitless strength, the madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets.

Though they are in the same strength class, let’s list five reasons why Superman may be stronger.

5 REASONS WHY SUPERMAN IS STRONGER THAN HULK

5. GREATER WILLPOWER

In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman increases the GL energy beam by 20 percent with his willpower.
In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman increases the GL energy beam by 20 percent with his willpower. DC Comics.

To begin, one of Superman’s greatest strengths in his fights is his willpower. Despite overwhelming odds, Superman never backs down but continues fighting.

Over the years, it has been explained that Superman has some of the strongest willpowers in the DC Universe.

At one point, Superman was a candidate to receive a Green Lantern ring. In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman and the Green Lanterns fight a mount of dirt.

In an assault, Superman adds his willpower to the GL beams, increasing it by 20 percent.

Though Hulk also has unbelievable willpower. However, in most incarnations, he lacks the corresponding intelligence.

And in a battle against such a savage foe, willpower is everything.

4. STRONGER ENEMIES

In ‘Superman/Batman’ (2004) #13, Superman is angry at the death of Kara Zor-El and battles Darkseid.
In ‘Superman/Batman’ (2004) #13, Superman is angry at the death of Kara Zor-El and battles Darkseid. DC Comics.

Notably, this argument is debatable. Indeed, Hulk regularly meets with top-tier and cosmic-level foes.

Some of them include the U-Foes, Abomination, High Evolutionary, Silver Surfer, Thor, Sentry, Galaxy Master and even Marvel Zeus.

However, Hulk has suffered from low-quality opponents. Due to his baseline strength being lower, Hulk has had trouble with street-level opponents.

For example, Spider-Man once knocked out Hulk with a punch.

In the Post-Crisis continuity, Superman more often fights opponents in his strength class.

Many are Superman-level, but others like Darkseid, Brainiac 13, Fernus, Imperiex, Dominus and Mandrakk are Planetary, Universal to Multiversal-level threats.

3. BETTER LIFTING FEATS

In 'Final Crisis: Superman Beyond' (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages.
In ‘Final Crisis: Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages. DC Comics.

Perhaps, one department of super strength that truly separates Superman and Hulk is lifting feats.

Unquestionably, Hulk has better striking feats. In fact, his punches often explode with the force of bombs, or turn back time.

However, Superman may outclass Hulk in raw strength. On two occasions, he has pushed past the boundaries of infinity.

In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel/Shazam lift the Book of Limbo. Indeed, it contains infinite pages all occupying the same space.

On another occasion, Superman lifted eternity. In JLA/Spectre: Soul War (2003) #1, Superman and Wonder Woman lift Spectre.

2. SAVING THE DAY

In 'Justice League' (2019) #25, in a battle against the World Forger, Superman breaches the Sixth Dimension and shatters the Forger's Multiverse creation with a punch.
In ‘Justice League’ (2019) #25, in a battle against the World Forger, Superman breaches the Sixth Dimension and shatters the Forger’s Multiverse creation with a punch. DC Comics.

In Superman, The Greatest Story, I argue that Superman is the strongest hero. Both on the strength of his story and by feats.

What really makes Superman work, is that he is the quintessential American superhero. In fact, Superman always saves the day.

In part, it is due to his willpower. Also, it is due to his humanity. Indeed, proving that super strength is also a matter of determination.

Though, Hulk also is a superhero. However, he lacks at times his humanity. In fact, a factor that may mean life or death in a crisis.

 

1. BETTER FIGHTER

n Superman/Batman (2005) #23, Superman uses pressure points on a Kryptonite-Man-possessed Batman.
In Superman/Batman (2005) #23, Superman uses pressure points on a Kryptonite-Man-possessed Batman. DC Comics.

When it comes to fighting, both superheroes have had a bad reputation. Over the years, Hulk has been viewed as a mindless brute.

At the same time, Superman has often fought like a brawler. Generally, Superman is the better fighter.

Post-Crisis, he has received combat training from Mongul, Batman and Wonder Woman.

In Superman/Batman (2005) #23, Superman uses the pressure point technique against a Kryptonite-Man possessed Batman.

In addition, Superman has mastered the Infinite Mass Punch. Recently, in Rebirth, Superman performed the speedblitz on Doomsday.

The Silver Surfer — herald of Galactus, devourer of worlds — recognizes the Worldheart as the one object that could forever sate his master’s apocalyptic appetite. Now, the Surfer has come to Asgard to claim a prize Odin will not surrender without a fight — and Thor is caught in the middle. Will he entrust the Worldheart to the Surfer?

To begin, “The Mighty Thor Vol. 1” is the most serious treatment of Thor since “Thor: Disassembled.” To sum, the Volume is a cosmic story about beginnings and endings. In fact, a story arc about the end of the world, and the end of Asgard.

In a few words, Silver Surfer comes to Fallen Asgard to bring a message to Odin and Thor: Hand over the Worldheart to Galactus or Asgard will be destroyed. Amazingly, Matt Fraction’s writing is crisp, cold and detached while Olivier Coipel illustrates panels that capture the seriousness of the moment.

Certainly, this is an event you do not want to miss. Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of Thor and to comic collectors. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Thor! And Silver Surfer!

Certainly, “The Mighty Thor By Matt Fraction Vol. 1 (The Mighty Thor (2011-2012))” is the Kindle and Comixology editions. Without a doubt, the story arc showcases some of the best Thor battles in comics. In fact, Thor and Silver Surfer engage in two battles of cosmic proportions.

In a few words, Silver Surfer has come to Asgard to deliver an ultimatum from Galactus: Hand over the Worldheart to Galactus or watch Asgard be destroyed. Naively, Surfer believes Galactus seeks to sate his hunger whereas Odin reveals to Thor that Galactus seeks to live forever when the Marvel Universe restarts. In short, the stakes are high.
