There’s few things people enjoy more than watching their favorite heroes and villains duke it out, usually with the universe (or perhaps just a dimension or two) at stake. Whether it’s the epic Hulkbuster vs. Hulk fight scene from last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron or the gritty, ultra-violent showdown between Daredevil and the Kingpin in Netflix’s Daredevil, the facts are in; people want to see super powered folks throwing down the gauntlet and having a run at each other, which is why we here at Goliath have sat down and hashed out 10 great superhero showdowns that we’d love to see (or see again, in some cases). While you might’ve seen some of these already, either in the comics or in their television and film adaptations, we felt like these 10 fights would bring out the inner nerd in all our readers and give you something to argue about at the water cooler next time you’re chatting with your coworkers.
10. Wolverine vs. Sabretooth
Wolverine and Sabretooth go way back; the two have been rivals in Marvel lore for quite some time, dating back to their time in the Weapon X (now referred to as Weapon Plus) program. Sabretooth has often acted as a literary foil for Wolverine, embracing the savage nature of his mutation while Wolverine tries actively to suppress his. While both mutants share an accelerated healing power and heightened senses, Sabretooth has never been given the adamantium skeleton bestowed upon Wolverine, a fact which has long led the former to resent that latter (among other reasons). While we’ve seen Sabretooth and Wolverine face off innumerable times in the comics and several times in the Fox film series, we’ve placed it at number 10 on this list because we don’t think we’ll ever get tired of seeing these two feral superheroes engage in a fight to the death (a difficult thing to do, given that they both heal extraordinarily quickly from most any injury).
