Restructure

I thought pretty hard about how to make my blog more appealing, and I finally decided on a course of action.  Within the next few days, I will be editing the layout of my site, as well as laying out my new site.  As I mentioned a few posts ago, I will be taking hybrdcobra.com back to a nerd/fitness blog, focusing mainly on my nerd hobbies and fitness posts.  My goal is to post one nerd post and one fitness post a day, but as usual, we will see how that goes.

In addition to cleaning up this site, I will be opening my second site which will be jonsword.com.  This new blog site will be focused on all my creative works.  I’ve been working on several projects, some for school and some on the side, and I would like to start sharing them as I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on them.  Once that blog is open I’ll be sure to let everyone know.

I’m hoping by doing this my blog will be more appealing to everyone, and by focusing on certain activities hopefully I’ll keep the interest in my blog.  My daily life events will probably remain on the hybrdcobra.com site as well, but if I start getting negative feedback, I’ll take that portion down.

Let me know what you think.  Thanks again as always for reading, and until next time.

Ok so I have been focusing on a lot of gaming related material, and I promised to make this blog Nerd related.  Here is how I plan to do that.  I think once a week I will have a “Who Would Win” post, and it will be related to the comic book universe.

For this weeks “Who Will Win”, we will pit the Justice league against the Avengers.  Now in case you didn’t know, a comic book series was made that actually pitted the two teams together and it was called “JLA/Avengers”.  This series ran from September 2003 until March 2004.  The premise behind this series was that each team had to recover the majority of 12 artifacts, six of which came from the DC universe and the other six from the Marvel universe.  I won’t delve to much into that however because this is solely an opinion based article and I want to know what all the readers think as well.

Now just to get this out there, I have no favorites in this engagement.  I enjoy both universes, even if that goes against what most comic book enthusiasts think.  I really enjoy elements and characters from both sides, but will still give you my opinion on which team would win in the ultimate slug fest, but first…..

Lets take a look at the teams.  Now as any comic book junky, casual reader, or movie watcher should know, there are several different variations to each team.  These variations are all based on time frame and the writer.  So what we will do is take a look at the most known configurations of each team.

Justice League

Batman- Billionaire Bruce Wayne.  Relies on technology and martial prowess to win the day.

Superman- the “alien” from Krypton.  Has a bunch of super abilities including speed and strength and gets his power from the sun.

The Flash- He is super fast.  Need I say more?

Aquaman- His abilities mostly deal with the water.  He can compel sea creatures to do his bidding, but he also has superhuman strength and can swim fast.

Green Lantern-  Utilizes a ring which he uses for his attacks allowing him to shape a beam to anything he can think of.  Also allows him to fly.

Wonder Woman- Has great martial abilities, but can also fly and has superhuman strength.

Martian Manhunter- This guy has it all.  Flight, telepathy, shapeshifting, superhuman strength and agility, invisibility and increased healing ability to name a few.

The Avengers

Iron Man- Genius also his suit might do a plethora of things but mainly making him stronger, faster, giving flight, and a ton of weapon systems.

Captain America- Increased physical condition making him faster and stronger, expert tactician, and carries vibranium-steel alloy shield

Thor- Super human strength, flight, and several abilities provided by Mjolnir (hammer)

Black Widow- slowed aging, increased immune system, tactician, martial artist, and weapon skills.

Hulk-Immense superhuman strength, stamina, durability, endurance, longevity, regenerative healing factor.  Also when in the form of Bruce Banner he is a genius.

Hawkeye- Expert marksman (bow), also a skilled tactician.

My Opinion

I think it would be a great fight, in my opinion the biggest part of this fight would be the planning.  You have Batman and Ironman both of whom are very smart and calculating.  The biggest thing however is that both heroes have already planned how to neutralize members of, if not their entire teams.  Ironman has the hulk buster to take out the Hulk who is near invincible, and then Batman keeps files on all of the Justice League and even keeps a stash of Kryptonite to take down Superman.

After the planning stage however I think the fight would go hands down to the Justice League.  First of all 4 of 7 members of the JLA can fly unassisted where as only 2 members of the Avengers can fly.  That leaves the remainder of the team in a jet which is a pretty easy target.  Taking that out of the equation however:

You send Superman after the Hulk.  Superman has already defeated Doomsday who is the DC version of Hulk, and in my opinion Doomsday is a lot tougher opponent than the Hulk.

Batman VS Ironman-  Again Batman is very calculating and will exploit any weakness of Ironman, who is extremely cocky.  All Batman has to do is figure a way to neutralize the suit and Ironman is just another man.

Flash VS Hawkeye- Hawkeye is a great archer but you can’t hit what you can’t see.  That being said however, Hawkeye is a master tactician so he could set traps to deal with the Flash and could turn the engagement around.

Wonder Woman VS Captain America- Who knows if this would happen but I feel it would be a great match up.

Aquaman VS Black Widow- I only made this a matchup because Black Widow uses a lot of guns and Aquaman is resistant to gunfire.  Also the only Avenger left is Thor and one would hope they wouldn’t put a water superhuman against Thor of all people.

Martian Manhunter + Green Lantern VS Thor- Lets face it, in this variation theres just more JLA so you can double team one of the Avengers so you might as well double team the Thunder God.  Even though he is being double teamed in this situation I think Thor would put up a really good fight, but I feel he would also eventually succumb to the pressure of two heroes.

Now this is a very basic argument to my opinion, but in my opinion the JLA has the advantage.  My next several “Who Would Win” articles will start by breaking down each of these fights and will go more in depth as to why I feel the JLA heroes would prevail.  After writing about all the battles I will rewrite the whole JLA vs Avengers article to again state my opinion.

Thank you for reading, and I want to hear from as many people as possible.  Do you agree with me or do you think the Avengers would take the day?  Tell me why.
