In Captain America: Civil War, best buddies Iron Man and Captain America clash in a battle of ideologies, leading to an all out confrontation between them and their respective superhero teams. It’s a massive brawl between all the Marvel superheroes, and makes for a rollicking good fight.

But it’s not really a fair fight, is it? Come on, Captain America against Iron Man? It’s like Batman versus Superman. The winner should be obvious. How about some fairer fights between superheroes with similar powers? Now that would be a showdown worth watching!

So here’s our wish list of superhero battles. May the best man (or woman) win!

1. Dr Strange vs Dumbledore

They’re both powerful sorcerers who wield unspeakable knowledge, and chant random mumbo jumbo when they cast spells. But really, who would be the more powerful wizard? Remember that Dumbledore has the Time Turner so he can literally go back in time, but Dr Strange is the Sorcerer Supreme. We’ll just have to wait for the Dr Strange movie to see how powerful he is!

Whoever wins, there’ll only be one explanation for it – magic.

2. Black Panther vs Catwoman

They’re both feline-themed super-powered beings, just that they fall on the opposite sides of the law. Neither of them really have flashy super powers, and it’s really down to their fighting skills and equipment to determine a winner. One thing’s for sure though, this will definitely end up as a battle of the sexes.

And a really, really big catfight.

3. Thor vs Superman

Watching these two fight will be watching an actual Clash of the Titans. They’ve got the same basic set of powers – strength, flight, invulnerability – and they’ve also got ranged attacks like lightning and heat vision. They’ve actually clashed before in the comics, but if we get to see them duke it out in a movie, that’ll probably be in 2099 when the inevitable Avengers vs Justice League movie comes out.

Hey, how about an Asgard vs Krypton movie?

4. Hawkeye vs Katniss

Katniss isn’t exactly a superhero, but she never misses, just like Hawkeye. If they were to pit their archery skills against each other, who would come out on top? Katniss has her whole resistance faction behind her, while Hawkeye has a bunch of superheroes backing him up. It’d be a tough fight of numbers vs strength.

Imagine if Robin Hood and Green Arrow joined the fray.

5. Iceman vs Elsa

Both have ice powers, even if one is mutant-based and the other one is magic-based. Still, Elsa can sing, so that’s one ability that Iceman definitely doesn’t have. But will an endless refrain of “Let It Go” be enough to turn the odds in Elsa’s favour, or will she leave Iceman Frozen?

It’d be a really cool battle though.

6. Vision vs Terminator

They’re both unstoppable robots who inspire terror among their teammates, simply because there’s no telling what goes on in that mechanical mind. Do they have compassion? Can we appeal to their empathy? If they fight each other, would we even survive the clash?

Most importantly, do they provide us with free WiFi when we’re near them?

7. Iron Man vs Mech Suit Batman

In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman dons mechanical armour in preparation for his fight against Superman. That sounds a lot like Iron Man’s armour, except that he can’t fly. Actually, that sounds like Iron Man’s Hulkbuster Armour! That would even the odds in a battle between Batman and Iron Man, and this is one fight that Iron Man would have difficulty flying away from.

Also, Batman has a Batmobile and Batplane and Batcycle and Batboat (and so on), so even without his Mech Suit, he’d still be a match for Iron Man.

8. Scarlet Witch vs Hermione

Scarlet Witch isn’t a true witch (at least in the movies, her powers aren’t magical), but her abilities are as undefined as magic. Then you have Hermione, who’s possibly the most powerful witch of her age. Watching the two go at it would be like watching a smaller scale version of the fight between Dr Strange and Dumbledore, except that this would require more brains than brawn.

Watching Elizabeth Olsen fight Emma Watson would be pretty awesome too!

But for a truly huge battle of superheroic proportions, you have to catch Captain America: Civil War! It’s the superhero film you must catch this year, because it’s got almost every Marvel hero in it to date. And virtually every review for it has been positive!

Before you go in, ask yourself this.

Team Cap or Team Iron Man?
