THOR AND HERCULES ARMWRESTLE

In Thor (1988) #400, Thor hit a milestone. In order to celebrate Thor, writer Tom DeFalco and writer/artist Ron Frenz collaborated on the supersized 64-page comic.

Super Power: How Superman’s Super Powers Match Against Captain Marvel’s Power of SHAZAM (Film, TV and Comics)

 

SUPER POWER

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 SUPERHERO BATTLES

*In anticipation of Shazam: Fury Of The Gods we publish this article on DC’s top two heroes.

SUPERMAN AND SHAZAM ARE DC’S TWO STRONGEST HEROES

In 2009, Final Crisis closed one of DC’s most ambitious crossover event in years. During one of the multiverse’s most dramatic crises, the Supermen of the Multiverse were recruited to save it from impending annihilation by the vampire god Mandrakk. Importantly, Captain Marvel led in the final assault on the Dark monitor and Ultraman, with Superman as the witness.

In fact, since the 1930s, Superman and Captain Marvel have been rivals and celebrated as equals. From rivals Detective Comics and Fawcett Comics, their rivalry became a sensation when DC Comics acquired the rights to Captain Marvel in 1973.

In one of DC Comics’ darkest crises, Monitrix Zillo Valla recruits these two legendary superheroes and the Supermen of the multiverse to fight the ultimate enemy: Dark Monitor who feeds on the stories of the DC multiverse! It’s up to these two heroes to find the Ultramenstruum and save the DC multiverse.

Let’s look at how Superman’s super powers and Captain Marvel’s power of SHAZAM match against each other across various media.

TV: IN THE JLU EPISODE CLASH SUPERMAN IS THE BETTER FIGHTER

Blue Kryptonite

From 2004 to 2006, Warner Bros. Animation ran seasons 1 to 3 of Justice League Unlimited on Cartoon Network. To date, the cartoon has been celebrated as the best TV superhero show of all-time. At Gizmodo, the critic commends its ensemble cast, episodic nature and the strong characterization.

Perhaps, the high point of Season 2 was Clash. In the episode, the naive and well-meaning Captain Marvel comes to blows with the paranoid and cynical Superman over Lex Luthor supposedly turning over a new leaf in his presidential run and building a fusion-powered Lexor City.

With fisticuffs and muscle-bound heroes, it appears both fighters in the strength and speed departments are evenly matched. In fact, durability and fighting skills are the difference makers as Superman emerges as tougher and more experienced.

In the end, Superman wins the battle by dodging Shazam’s lightning blast and which blasts the World’s Mightiest Mortal, reverting him to Billy Batson. Then, Superman covers his mouth before he can utter the magic words.

TV: CAPTAIN MARVEL’S MAGIC CAN DEFEAT BLACK ADAM

DC-Marvel

Really, the DCAU has produced some remarkable animated films about its favorite characters. In Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam (DC Showcase), Black Adam returns after a five thousand year exile in space.

Particularly, the movie is part Shazam origin-story, part team-up and part Black Adam movie. Importantly, the movie features some impressive action sequences during the battles between the titular characters.

As we all know, Captain Marvel possesses the Wisdom of Solomon, the Strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles and the Speed of Mercury.

Once again, Superman and Black Adam are a match physically and in energy projection. However, Superman’s weakness to magic makes Captain Marvel more than his equal. In battle against Black Adam, Superman soon loses the advantage.

In the end, it is Captain Marvel that ends Black Adam’s rampage on Earth. Though not without some help from Superman with lessons on morality, protecting the weak, and not killing even his enemies.

FILM: SUPERMAN CAN ESCAPE A BLACK HOLE

Movieclips

Though Man of Steel received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, the general consensus is that it is an ambitious re-introduction of Superman to a modern audience. Particularly, it features incredible VFX that have impressed fans worldwide.

Perhaps, one of its least celebrated moments is the black hole scene towards the end of the movie. During the alien abduction, the digital Jor-El saves Lois and formulates a plan to defeat General Zod and the Kryptonians.

From Lois Lane, Superman learns they can stop the Kryptonian terraforming by colliding the World Engine ship with his rocket he escaped in when he was an infant.

Since both machines are powered by phantom drives, which bends space, a black hole is created. Soon, the Kryptonians are sucked into the Phantom Zone unable to escape. Heroically, Superman saves Lois Lane in free fall and escapes the Phantom Zone.

Importantly, since it is a black hole, and nothing, not even light can escape a black hole, Superman definitely travelled Faster-Than-Light to escape the back hole.

FILM: SHAZAM RIPPED OUT THE EYE OF SIN

Flashback FM

Soon, Shazam is becoming the DC Extended Universe’s new powerhouse. In his first live-action movie, Shazam!, the titular hero took on supernatural threats in Fawcett City. And he had help from the Shazam Family.

In the final battle, Shazam and the Shazam Family take on Doctor Sivana and the Seven Deadly Sins. In a supernatural battle, Shazam succeeds in blasting the Deadly Sin Envy freed from Sivana. However, he must still end Sivana’s threat.

In order to save Fawcett City, Shazam flies the powerless Sivana to the carnival where the Family is fighting the other Sins. Powerfully, he rips out the Eye of Sin from Sivana which contains all the Seven Deadly Sins.

In terms of power, at least a Mountain-Level of Super Strength since Black Adam unleashed them in the past, killing millions of people.

PREVIOUSLY, SILVER SURFER’S LEFT ARM WAS TAINTED WITH DARKNESS BATTLING KNULL

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ #2, Silver Surfer was previously tainted in darkness. At the beginning of time, Silver Surfer had found the god of darkness. In a battle with Knull, the Sentinel was turned into the dark Elder God’s Void Knight. Fortunately, Surfer was freed from Klyntar by the intervention of Ego the Living Planet. Weak from his battle, the Sentinel of the Spaceways was contaminated by the darkness. In fact, his left hand was tainted with the Living Abyss. Growing, the darkness doomed Surfer. In fact, it was a matter of time before the darkness overtook him.

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ #3, Silver Surfer seeks to restore his Power Cosmic. Incredibly, Surfer was guided by Ego to the Black Galaxy. There, Surfer identified his benefactor. Near the planet, he asked Ego if he could rest upon it. To which it agreed. While resting, the Surfer noticed earthquakes on the planet. Sensing a problem, he offered to help if Ego helped him fight Knull. Begrudgingly, Ego accepted. Inside the planet’s core, Norrin fought off its antibodies. There, he found the Lifebringer One, a growing Galactus. Horrified, Silver Surfer decides to destroy the future Devourer of Worlds. Later, he relents.

EGO THE LIVING PLANET CONNECTS SILVER SURFER TO ALL THE LIFE IN THE COSMOS

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ (2019) #4, Ego infuses Silver Surfer with the power of the Light. Previously, Surfer planned to kill Galactus in orer to change history. After an astral conversation with Galan, Norrin changes plans. In fact, he wants to allow Marvel history to take its course.

Having returned to Ego the Living Planet, Surfer communicates him his plan. Telepathically, Ego looks into Surfer’s mind. Then, he connects Surfer to all the life in the cosmos. Infused with the power of Light, Silver Surfer is prepared to battle the approaching Knull.

SILVER SURFER TRANSFORMS HIS BOARD INTO A SWORD AGAINST ALL-BLACK

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ (2019) #5, Silver Surfer faces off against Knull a second time. However, this time, the Surfer vows to stop the dark god no matter the cost. During the titanic clash, Knull’s darkness contaminates Silver Surfer even moe. Now, the darkness tainting Surfer covers almost his entire body.

Epically, Silver Surfer transforms his flying surfboard into a sword. Mano a mano, the two warriors appear evenly matched. Indeed, it appears Silver Surfer’s sword is a match for All-Black, Knull’s sword. However, Surfer is reminded that Knull is not a single entity but a horde. Viciously, tendrils lash off the symbiote-dragon. And they engulf Silver Surfer in the darkness. Apparently, the King in Black has won the battle.

SILVER SURFER CREATES A STAR TO DEFEAT KNULL

Desperately, Silver Surfer shackled by tendrils, senses the end. Forcefully, the darkness seeks to conquer the Light. However, as Knull draws near, the Light stirs the Surfer. Valiantly, he remembers his courage. Incredibly, Silver Surfer creates a sun momentarily reclaiming his light.

In anguish, Knull is incinerated and screams in pain. As the sun glows in the cosmos, Knull is sent away to the edges of the universe. But, Silver Surfer knows the villain will return. Courageously, Silver Surfer seeks to restore the cosmic balance.
