It’s the question that’s plagued us since childhood conversations around the water fountain: “Who would win in a fight?”. Everyone has a hero or two and while it may not make any sense for them to get into a fight, when faced with a friend’s hero, finding out which was the better of the two always involved a fictional face-off. It didn’t matter if it was Bill Nye vs. Beakman or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vs. the Power Rangers. Figuring out which was best at what they actually did meant figuring out how well they’d hold up in a physical fight. It didn’t make any sense then and it doesn’t now, but the temptation still exists. In fact, the feeling is so prominent that sometimes the source material will cave in or even beat us to the punch.
Superman and the Flash have raced twice, at least. Nearly every popular Nintendo character has fought in Super Smash Brothers. Now, defying logic and copyright alike, we can see Superman duke it out with The Incredible Hulk right before our eyes. This great-looking fan-made trailer was created by animator Michael Habjan with the assistance of composer Francois Gratecap. A Christopher Reeve based Superman has a brief encounter with The Hulk. The two are quick to start duking it out, given The Hulk’s short temper. They’re out in a desolate desert setting, which adds to the atmosphere. These two giants are out to take each other out where there are no civilians to get in the way.
We won’t spoiler who came out the victor, but it’s a pretty intense fight. It’s a brilliant fan trailer that looks like a real CGI animation that DC and Marvel might put out. The set-up is great and the battle gets really intense. It’s an extremely solid effort from some great fans, who, once again,answered the question of “Who would win”.
Check out Superman and The Hulk’s encounter and the fight below:
