Marvel and DC Comics have competed with each other for decades. Although there have been crossovers in the past featuring battles between the two franchises, fans are still wondering to this day: Who would win in a fight?
We spent 48 hours researching to find out who would emerge victorious between the two superhero teams!
Justice League & Avengers Compared
Marvel's Avengers and the Justice League sit far above the rest among all comic book superheroes. Both respective teams have their strengths and weaknesses, but to truly understand who would win in battle, we need to put the battle in perspective. We believe several factors are necessary to determine the victor, and we'll go into detail in the following texts.
There are several tacticians from the Avengers' side, and they will need every bit of strategy to take down DC's Justice League. Being a smart, tech-savvy billionaire, Tony Stark is key to their victory.
Doctor Strange could also check out alternate universes to develop techniques that give them the upper hand. Finding a way to stop Superman will be a major advantage for the Avengers.
Marvel would put up a good fight against the Justice League in terms of powers. There's Thor and Hulk, who are arguably the strongest Avengers characters; Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange, with their magical expertise.
Black Panther and Iron Man's tech are also significant elements to the superhero team. Of course, we can't set aside Captain Marvel and Vision, both equipped with the power of infinity stones.
The Marvel universe also boasts some heavy hitters that can go on hand combat with Justice League's top dogs. There's Bruce Banner, who can transform into the incredible Hulk. Thor Odinson is also a strong competitor.
You might not think of this, but Ant-Man and Spider-Man both have the proportional strengths of the bugs they represent. Captain Marvel and Captain America are good fighters too.
Intelligence & Wit
In terms of intelligence, this is where Iron Man stands out incredibly. His intellect and money combined are unrivaled in coming up with expensive Justice League destroying tech of sorts. Add Hulk to the mix plus the Vibranium from Black Panther, and you get a trifecta of intellect, wit, and the unrivaled tech, even by Marvel's standards.
There's arguably no better tactician in the entire Justice League universe (even Marvel, maybe) than Bruce Wayne. Remember that the Dark Knight had strategies to overpower all his teammates.
What he lacks in power, he makes up with stratagems. Cyborg would also be a powerful tactical element on the Justice League side. This man can hack into anything, which means entering Iron Man's mainframe is easy as pie!
Superman is no doubt the most powerful hero in all universes. His strength is unrivaled, plus he has cold breath and heat vision that can pulverize anyone. In the JLA/Avengers comic written by George Perez and Kurt Busiek, we see how he defeated Thor .
Aside from him, there's Hal Jordan, a.k.a. Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, with literally the power of Gods within her.
The two teams have strong characters, but Superman can take on all Avengers members with brute strength unless they come up with a Kryptonite shooting gun. Along with Superman, DC has Wonder Woman, who is almost equally strong.
Martian Manhunter also has incredible strength and telepathic ability to fry a person's brain. So, brute strength between JLA/Avengers, Justice League wins easily.Shop The DC Justice League Collection Now
Intelligence & Wit
Batman is one of the most intelligent heroes, no doubt. Aside from being a great tactician, he was also trained by the League of Shadows, which means he can put up a fight. He is the only Justice League member who can potentially take down anyone in his path, provided he has sufficient preparation.
On the other hand, Cyborg has A.I. intelligence and serves as another great brain in the DC Comics superhero team. Lastly, Flash can think fast on his feet too. The incredible speed of Flash allows him to think at supercharged levels.
Head to Head Combat
Iron Man, Dr. Strange, and Hulk (in Banner form) might defeat the Justice League if they find a tactic to take Superman out. Like what's said above, a kryptonite gun might weaken Superman, and Thor could give a powerful blow to the head.
Meanwhile, Batman can form a strategy against them, and Cyborg could hack into the mainframe of Iron Man and disable it, rendering Tony Stark moot.
Unlike the Avengers being Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and the rest, they are almost evenly matched to some extent. This means they would need everyone on the team to win.
In Justice League's case, there are overpowered heroes who can shift the favor of the battle if taken away from the battlefield. If Avengers take Superman, Wonder Woman, or Batman from the battlefield, they might have a higher chance of winning.
Main External Powers
Both Marvel and DC have extended universes for their heroes. Suppose it comes to external powers like inserting other Avengers, including Captain Marvel, the Silver Surfer, and Wanda Maximoff. In that case, they'd still have a hard time against Aquaman, Shazam, and Dr. Fate in battle.
It would be amazing to see this clash of heroes, but DC might still win.
Main Inherent Powers
Some heroes are evenly matched, like Green Arrow and Hawkeye, Captain America and Batman, Iron Man and Cyborg. Still, all superhero teams in the world pale compared to the gods of DC being Superman and Wonderwoman.
Thor, Hulk, and Captain Marvel would easily be obliterated, but given Superman's weakness to magic, Scarlet Witch or Dr. Strange can put him out of commission with the right strategy.
No one would be more ruthless than the Justice League if it comes to a real fight. The Injustice series showed how the Son of Krypton, when unhinged, would destroy anyone in his path.
That means killing the powerful Avengers, even his team. If you remember DCEU's Justice League, a revived, non-conscious Clark Kent almost ended Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League if not for Lois Lane.
Heavy Hitter Advantage
The Justice League gets the benefit of having heavy hitters. Superman and Wonder Woman can easily break Captain America's shield with one blow. Green Lantern is a strong candidate (imagine creating a giant hammer to pummel the Avengers).
Thor with his Stormbreaker and Hulk is a commendable foe, but not nearly enough. Even a superspeed Flash-that-circled-the-world punch is scary.
Enemy Assistance Advantage
The Avengers could win in battle if Thanos swoops in with the infinity gauntlet. Although this has never happened in the comics, he could snap the Justice League off the Earth.
However, Flash might prove significant if he tries to turn back time with the speed of light, just as he did in Zack Snyder's Justice League. Still, this battle could go both ways.
Even if Black Panther and his Wakandan friends, the wizards, and Asgardian warriors join in the battle, they'd still bow down to the entire Green Lantern Corps and the amazon warriors from Wonder Woman.
Although with many wizards around, Superman, who is weak against magic, might just be defeated, giving the Avengers the advantage they need!
Can the Avengers beat Superman?
It depends. The Avengers can subdue Superman with the right kind of strategy. With all his wisdom, Iron Man can create a tech using kryptonite force to weaken him. This allows the rest of them to beat the Son of Krypton to a pulp. But in a one-on-one bout, Superman could best them. 
Who wins - Batman of Justice League or Captain America of Avengers?
It depends. Batman and Captain America are both skilled in combat. Bruce would be more technical with his skills, although Steve Rogers has the edge for brute strength, being a super-soldier. If it's hand-to-hand combat, Steve would claim the victory, but Batman takes the bag with his gears and prep time.
It's really difficult to make predictions on who wins between the two teams as, during their previous battles, neither teams were at their peak states. Everyone would only know if another ultimate crossover occurs, and they battle it out no-holds-barred.
For the time being, we'd give it to Justice League. However, Avengers would put up a good fight and give DC's superheroes a run for their money.Shop The Marvel Collection Now
