Which wins in battle?

Post by EnterpriseSovereign » 2018-01-10 12:52pm

Despite seeing BvS long ago, recently I found myself asking the question- if the Destroyer seen in Thor fought Doomsday from BvS, which would win? Assuming the Destroyer was being piloted remotely like it was in Thor.

The reason I ask is that both share some characteristics- both are highly destructive, have virtually identical beam attacks and have vulnerabilities that would be very difficult to exploit. The destroyer was defeated with the use of Mjolnir, because the hammer was the only thing that could block the beam (in the same way that WW's gauntlets could that of Doomsday). Destroyer meanwhile survived being impaled by Sif which only stopped it momentarily before it resumed its attack. Doomsday shared Superman's vulnerability to Kryptonite but even then was very difficult to get close to.

Me, I'd have to give this one to Doomsday because Destroyer has no direct counter to DD's ability to absorb and release some form of energy blast, as well as DD's ability to leap like the Hulk to give greater mobility. I think the greatest unknown is what effects DD's reflecting attack would have on Destroyer, if any.

It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.

I'm going with Doomsday.

He's above Superman-tier, and the DC universe, film-wise at least, is generally more powerful than the MCU.
