Iron Man vs. Cyborg – Marvel vs. DC #5

Welcome! My name is Olaf Lesniak and this is Marvel vs DC! The series that will come out weekly on Saturdays and will pit two famous characters against each other. I will look at both opponents’ skills, powers, abilities, stamina and etc. to help me determine the winner. Today our battle is….

Iron Man vs. Cyborg!

First we will look at the origins and the basics of each character. We will follow that by Iron Man’s and Cyborg’s powers and abilities which would then lead them into battle.

Origins: Iron Man

During the war in Afghanistan playboy billionaire industrialist, genius engineer Tony Stark was send there to test his military weapons he was creating. After being kidnapped by terrorists and critically injured Stark was imprisoned and forced to build weapons of mass destruction. Utilizing the material the terrorists were providing him he created an armored suit to escape. After successfully escaping Tony realized that he was creating weapons that helped harm the world, instead he began creating weapons to protect it. That day the Iron Man was born.

Cyborg’s newest suit


Cyborg and Iron Man are both characters that are highly drawn to their technology and without it they would most likely perish, which is why I chose both of these intelligent men to fight. Let’s look at their stats to determine the winner. Of course Iron Man has many armors that he could call upon during the fight at any time, but today we will look at his “All-New All-Different Marvel” suit as it is the most likely one for him to wear and because the suit has all in one capabilities of the previous suits. For Cyborg we will look at his newest suit that he received after he died and resurrected himself for the first time. Iron Man is capable of picking up 100 tons while Cyborg can only pick up 5. Iron Man clearly over powers Cyborg here.

Iron Man vs. Cyborg


Cyborg’s advantage would be his teleportation device that is so stealthy Superman can’t even detect it. Cyborg and Iron Man both have a huge variety of weapons that could cancel each other out, but Iron Man overpowers once again since he has nearly every suit build into one and that means that Tony has the bigger variety of weapons. His strength and the ability to turn into any suit he wishes (Iron-Samurai or Hulkbuster or Stealth-Iron Man) at any time would grant him the ability to win.

Let’s look at Cyborg’s strongest weapon though. An energy beam called the Heart Attack that can destroy any technology 50 miles from him. Sadly this wouldn’t work. One, Iron Man has an energy shield which the beam would not pass through and two, Iron Man can absorb energy and transfer it into electricity to recharge and become even more powerful. Iron Man could kill Cyborg instantly, but Cyborg does have a secret weapon. He resurrects. And it is such a quick process that if Stark were to kill Victor he would resurrect himself in less than a minute. This would seem like a never ending battle except for the fact that both heroes have hacking skills. The first person to hack into the other one’s system would likely win so, in order to do that we need to know how long it takes for each of them to hack.

Let’s first look at Cyborg. It would take a couple of minutes for Victor Stone to interface with an unknown computer (Iron Man’s computer would be unknown to Vic since he is from a different dimension). Now if we look at Iron Man it also takes him time to override someone else’s system, but his ace card is Friday. All Tony has to do is tell Friday to try and hack into Cyborg’s system. What Cyborg would have to do is interface with Iron Man’s computer MANUALLY and fight him at the same time which would throw him off. Even if both heroes started to hack at the begging of the battle Iron Man would kill Cyborg (as we agreed previously) which would halt Victor’s hacking process. When Tony hacks into Cyborg he could dysfunction his abilities and kill him forever. This makes the armored avenger the winner.


Iron Man’s All in One Suit



WINNER: Iron Man


Iron Man Wins!



Thank you for reading this installment of Marvel vs DC. Do you agree with the result? What are some next battles that you would wanna see me analyze? Give me all suggestions, opinions and ideas in the comment section. Be sure to like, and make sure to SHARE! Thank you all once again and see you next Saturday.

  1. Cyborg can control all technology in the Universe so he will easily control Iron man’s suit. Aint no fight.


  2. You don’t think Tony’s AI will block the breachment of Cyborg? Iron Man is known for being prepared at any instance especially hacking or breaches since he has many tech based villains. But you’re right, I should’ve talked more in depth about Cyborg’s Technopathy.


  3. Well it’s not that easy. He can tap into any technology but not use it to it’s fullness. Like the Power Ring. He was able to tap into it but he couldn’t control it bc use there was something preventing him to.


  4. cyborg wins
    hes smarter as he is always connected the net while tony isnt.
    he can hack tonys suit while tony can never be able to hack his.
    cyborg is the machine while iron wears the machine. there s a difference.
    there is nothin ironman can possibly do to him that he cant dodge or deflect.
    lastly hes gat boom tubes and tecnopathy which tony can never resist



  5. You want me to tell you where I got the issue of when the 2 fought? I’m not sure what you mean exactly. These posts are my original and the covers (picture) at the top was fan made.


  6. the guy nicknamed as “splendid” has the stupidest idea I ve ever seen.The thing about Tony is that he fights basically himself. Titanium Man, Crimson Dynamo, Iron Monger, Firepower, Blizzard, M.O.D.O.K., Ultron, and even organizations like A.I.M. and H.Y.D.R.A. all use extremely advanced technology not unlike Tony’s. He is used to fighting people who have very similar abilities. Cyborg is just another one of these guys. Tony should have no problem with this one.

    Tony can tank Nukes with his shields at 2% capacity. His armors base strength can lift upwards of 100 tons. His thrusters can move upwards of Mach 10. He can pilot and maneuver his suit while moving at high speeds through New York city relatively easy. He has an on board AI that allows him to plot courses and formulate strategies (though he usually just ignores them). His Repulsors can punch holes through mountains. And that’s just his armor at its base. He can overcharge his armor to make himself even stronger. He can overcharge anywhere between 800%-3200% safely, and even up to 5000% if he wants to risk it. Doing this he was able to effortlessly lift a 16,000 ton reactor. He also has a whole armory that he can call upon that all can perform very similar feats. His armor can convert nearby energy sources (including the sun) into his suit to be used later. It can generate magnetic fields to push or pull on magnetic objects and can negate the magnetic fields of his armor (Take that Magneto!).

    On the defensive side, Tony’s suit is made of titanium and layered by a highly complex matrix of molecularly-aligned fully crystallized ultra high carbon iron/steel hybrid alloy enhanced by magnetic fields, and is reinforced with carbon nanotubes creating a shell that is pliable, yet capable of amazingly high resilience and protection. His Armors are fully resistant against electricity, fire, heavy impacts, energy blasts, take zero Kelvin and up to the Suns temperatures, even some of Thor’s attacks. The suit can withstand almost unlimited kinetic and thermal impact, as well as most forms of radiation thanks to its refractory coating. The armor without the shields can survive a nuclear explosion at ground zero. And finally, his energy shields which, as i stated before, can casually tank nukes.

    On Offense we have Repulsor rays, which can blast holes through mountains and through thick steel as though it were paper. The Unibeam, and its more powerful variant, the omnibeam, which can can generate heats at 25,232 degrees Fahrenheit, extremely powerful lights causing irreversible blindness in the enemy, and emit ultrasonic attacks capable of stunning even superhumanly durable foes and even causing disintegration. An energy blade made of the same materials as Cap’s energy replacement shield, which can flatten into a shield or cover the entire suit. Lazers, Pulse Bolts, Pulse Barrage’s, Smart Missles, and a Plasma discharge.

    Finally, Tony has been described by many as one of the smartest people in the marvel universe. With an intelligence classed as super-genius, he easily is one of the smartest people on Earth. Furthermore, this extends to his remarkable ingenuity dealing with difficult situations such as difficult foes and deathtraps where he is capable of using his available tools, like his suit, in unorthodox and effective ways, as an example: when he built the first Iron Man Armor in captivity. He has also been able to hack even technology from the aliens Kree, a race centuries more advanced than humans. He was able to predict the Super Hero Civil War YEARS before it even happened. His Tech has even amazed Reed Richards. He is an expert Engineer and tactician. He was trained in hand to hand combat by Captain America, Black Panther, Black Widow, and Shang-Chi. He is also an expert marksman. His suits are unhackable (Vision could only do it because he had Stark’s codes that stark had given him.) and EMP proof.

  7. Just can’t believe it……..I was looking for a fair battle between 2 but it seems like u are a marvel or iron man fanboy


  8. Ironman Created His Own Suit Which Can Be Removed But Cyborg Suit Is With Him. Cyborg Can Aim And Blast Ironman’s Heart. I Give It To Cyborg


  9. Cyborg has his suit/robot body taken apart from him. If you take Tony’s suit he can still do something or even call in a new armor, of you take away Cyborg’s metal half, he is nothing and in the brink of death.


  10. This just trash….. How iron man win…. cyborg can hack witin seconds to hack both military based computers and alien ones crybory could survive a lighting bolt with iron-man can’t… cyborg naturally upgrades himself every seconds …. Crybory is literally a machine….. He rejoins if pulled apart…. Iron-man is just a mere human that his suit can be ripped apart and be shot in the head with seconds


  11. Iron Man is stronger than Cyborg because he can easily hack Cyborg ‘s tech. faster than Cyborg does and he malfunctions


  12. Question what about Technomorphing – allowing him to add on any other tech onto him which is any other tech into him can he just go touch ironman suit because it a tech and take his armor im not saying hack but take it and add it on him gaining an uprgrade plus making ironman armorless???


  13. Iron mans top speed is 1.5 times the speed of light (latest suit). That is 450,000,000 m/s. Like to see how Cyborg keeps up with that.
