If there’s only one thing I’ve learned in my time at Major Spoilers, it’s that there are a LOT of members of the Legion of Super-Heroes.  But, as regular followers of my Twitter can tell you, there are a lot of Avengers as well, as we’re currently entering the second year of daily Avenger of the Day appearances.  If every single member of each team was assembled, it would be a massive crowd of several hundred superhumans, but what if they were forced to face off?  Hawkeye versus Bouncing Boy!  Superboy versus Thor!  Wasp versus Shrinking Violet!  It would be epic, it would be chaotic and it would lead us to today’s army-sized query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)would narrowly give the edge to the Legion, as they have just slightly more utter powerhouses to deal with, asking: Who will you bet on in an all-out brawl: Every single member of The Avengers or Every single member of the Legion of Superheroes?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Wanda says “No more Legion”, wipes out an entire timeline, and the Avengers are left standing in an empty field scratching their heads before getting their heart rates up.

  2. Jarmo Seppänen on

    Avengers, because of poorly defined powers of certain powerful mutants and magic users. They can do literally everything and anything.

  3. Daniel Langsdale on

    A part of me really wants to say “Legion,” because who does the Avengers have to square against Tenzil Kem in the requisite eating competition portion of the brawl? But then I remember that the Avengers have Doreen Green on their side, and she is Unbeatable — it’s right there in the title of her book, after all — so I give it to the “A” team.

  4. The Legion. I’m sure white witch could handle Wanda. Too many avengers rely on tech. Quilt would take out iron man,Hawkeyes arrows,war machine and widows gauntlets all at once. The only variable? Squirrel girl.

  5. The Legion, in all their incarnations, beats the Avengers hands down. Kid Quantum takes out Wanda before she can utter a word. The six Kryptonian-level heroes; Superboy, Supergirl, Mon-El, Andromeda, Star Boy and Ultra Boy make short work of the rest of the Avengers.
