MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
We all know everyone is special – a unique snow flake that has no companion (except for the twins).Â The DC Universe has a bunch of teenagers from the future who use their unique talents to save the universe, while Marvel 616 has a bunch of mutants who band together to save the universe.Â They are in no way alike – really.Â Trust us, we’ve got an uber-nerd working on this site, and he’ll tell you.
But even if they were remotely alike, and we could shape the universe to put the Legion of Super-Heroes and the X-Men on a deserted island and let them fight it out in a Battle Royale reality television series, who would come out on top?Â Would the X-Men win because they have Wolverine, or would it be the Legion because they have a 12th Level Intellect that can figure out the endgame before it happens?â€¨FIGHT!
