As we can see the two ladies both are pretty evenly matched with both having a heavy tank of abilities at their disposal. We will be looking at Rogue’s current version which just absorbed the ionic powers of Wonder Man giving her the same abilities as him. Let’s start with Rogue as her strength can easily lift over 100 tons. Power Girl, just like Superman and Supergirl, has no limits when it comes to strength and it’s an easy bet to say Power Girl will dominate in that category. Rogue’s speed can fly well over 700 mph, but yet again Power Girl has no limits being able to reach the speeds of light.Znalezione obrazy dla zapytania rogue marvel comics

With durability, stamina, and invulnerability it is more arguable, but let’s face it with the Kryptonian biology Kara should also take the cake. This doesn’t mean Rogue is totally in a weak state as she equals, if not, has a better defense thanks to her ionic energy body form that has become part of her. She is now immortal and possesses the abilities of healing. Rogue is unkillable while Powergirl could be killed! But one doesn’t need to kill the other to win a fight. Knocking out your opponent could be a deciding factor for victory, as well. Znalezione obrazy dla zapytania power girl dc comics

Power Girl has an advanced level of hand-to-hand combat while Rogue is better in agility. Now for enhanced senses Powergirl has enhanced hearing, reflexes, telescopic/microscopic vision, x-ray vision, electromagnetic detection, vision in the dark, super breath and ice breath. Rogue has a slight disadvantage as she only has enhanced hearing, telescopic vision and reflexes. So you have Power Girl with almost every overpowered superpower under her belt while Rogue is impossible to kill! How do we decide the winner? Well, it would be rogue of me not to mention Rogue’s main power which is her ability to absorb the powers, abilities, talents, memories, experiences, etc. from her opponents and in the process making them temporarily weaker. If she touches Power Girl’s skin for too long she could kill her. Now, let’s think about it. It’s very possible for Rogue to kill or K.O. Kara if we were to discount her power absorption just like it would be possible for Power Girl to K.O. Anna Marie. But if we bring in Rogue’s main power it’s even easier for Anne Marie to beat her opponent.Znalezione obrazy dla zapytania rogue marvel comics shiny art

She not only makes her opponent weaker, but also takes their powers away with perfect and I mean perfect use. If Anna Marie touches Kara Zor-El she gains her powers so she not only becomes unkillable, but also gains the power set of the Kryptonian of Earth 2 meaning the scale has tipped in Rogue’s favor. Rogue’s power taking and life sucking touch would be very easy to perform due to Power Girl’s distracting-uh! I mean exposing suit. It sucks to be Power Girl. She will never be taken literally. Poor thing.Znalezione obrazy dla zapytania power girl dc comics alex ross

WINNER: Rogue (Marvel)

Znalezione obrazy dla zapytania rogue marvel comicsYou better have agreed with this explanation! Or at least read it because I hate when people skip to the end of the post just to see who wins and when their character doesn’t win they complain when they didn’t read the explanation. Lazy bastards! But you’re different, right? Right?!?! Good! I’ll take your word for it and come back next week for another part in my awesome series.

Next Week: Riddle Me This, Teenage Magicians, Not Sabrina but Witch Tricksters



  1. I was struck by both the quality of artwork and the lack of dignity in the visual portrayals of Power Girl. Her bust is over-emphasized, and I feel that this character would be more impressive if designed with more grace and understatement. I realize that such qualities are often missing from comics, but it would be nice…
