This is a pic I made ,thinking that this would be the grand fights of two powerful heavy heavy weights. I would love to see it but, ...who will win.The artwork was drawn in pen and brought in photoshop.
LOL Here's another fight we gamed out in the RPG I was in. It went on forever...and in the end, was a draw. The combatants (thankfully on an uninhabited planet) had destroyed the world and both drifted away from each other into space... Unsatisfying, I know, but neither could land the final blow.
Doomsday for sure. A lot of the previous comments mention why, like base level power and ability to adapt constantly are the main reasons. Beside that he is just more terrifying lol. Great job by the way
Fail....if you read DC vs. Marvel, you'll see Superman say that fighting the Hulk was like fighting Doomsday. So obviously the Hulk was doing damage. Additionally, we are talking about the only creature in the known universes to lift Thor's hamme without Odin's blessing...
Might wanna rethink the unable to do anything to Doomsday bit.
Have you ever heard the word canon before? Marvel vs DC holds no bearing over either universe seeing as both have claimed that it's non canon. Doomsday's main power is reactive adaptivity, which allows him to boost his powers mid-battle and prevents him.from being beaten through the same method twice. If you read the Death of Superman, you'd know that Superman used pure brute force to beat Doomsday. Last time I checked, Hulk was pure brute force, ergo, Hulk can't do shit to Doomsday
At one time it wasn't canon, but if you read what happened after JLA/Avengers, all of the previous crossovers become canon retroactively, as per both comp0anies. JLA/Avengers, in fact is part of the catalyst for the Scarlet Witch's breakdown that led into House of M. It's also why there was a Cosmic Egg in the DCU, containing Krona, long after JLA/Avengers ended.
I have read Death of Superman, many times. I don't remember, in the original story, that this was ever said...that was written retroactively by other writers who thought Doomsday was too great a monster to waste on being dead. If you can find it in the original storyline, please let me know where, and I'll happily concede that point. I've been reading the Wikipedia page on Doomsday and it doesn't clarify the question. Additionally,
The Hulk is far more than just pure brute force. If that were all he was, he wouldn't have been able to beat villains like the Leader, who was all intellect. Remember that somewhere in that body lurks one of the finest minds in the Marvel Universe. Plus, these days especially, he isn't the mindless rampaging Hulk. There's a fair amount of intelligence there. (Of course, if the Hulk reverted to Banner, this is over in about a nanosecond. Banner jelly, anyone? )
Besides, my argument isn't that the Hulk would take Doomsday down. My argument is that it would end up in a stalemate. Having said that, I would like you to consider two facts.
One: Doomsday is part Kryptonian. That means he derives his powers and healing from a yellow sun, like any other Kryptonian. Separate him from that, and he weakens. This is why it took so long for him to regenerate when he first arrived on Earth; he was underground and had no solar energy feeding him. Had he been entombed inside an asteroid when his body was launched from Earth, he might never have returned. This information is on the Wikipedia site, btw.
Two: The Hulk doesn't tire either. In fact, the general knowledge is:the madder the Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. I think Doomsday would be quite the irritant!
Ultimately, in a straight-on slugfest, I maintain that it would be a stalemate. I'd pity whatever planet the fight happened on; I don't think there would be much left. In fact, when my gaming group played this scenario out, that's exactly how it ended: the planet broke apart and the two combatants drifted away from each other in space. I don't care how strong you are, you have to have something to fight on in order to fight.
Actually, both Marvel and DC have stated that none of their crossovers are canon, so your attempts to say JLA/Avengers makes the crossover canon us moot. If neither company admits the series is canon, then it's not canon, simple as that.
The reason it doesn't say that in the original story is because they didn't know what to do with Doomsday outside of having him kill Superman. He didn't have a back story until after the battle when they decided he was too popular and too iconic to just let go to waste, so Hunter/Prey came forth and gave Doomsday his back story. Subsequent stories add on to his reactive adaptivity; it's why he was able to return from being reduced to a skeleton by Imperiex, it's why he was able to tank the Omega Beams, it's why he was able to beat and kill Radiant. He's shown this power multiple times over in canon, as well as being able to adapt mid battle. He can easily counter the Hulk because his powers make him a walking Deus Ex Machina. If you're going to base all your opinions on things gathered from Wikipedia, then you're failing immensely. Wikipedia only has the summaries, not the full feats.
