Wonder Woman v.s. Storm: Who would win?


Stats:

Wonder Woman's body is a mystical creation made from the clay surrounding Themyscira. Through divine means, her disembodied soul was nurtured in and retrieved from the Well of Souls.[17] Once the soul was placed into the body it immediately came to life, and was blessed with metahuman abilities by six Olympian deities.

Demeter, the Goddess of agriculture and fertility, blessed Diana with strength drawn from the Earth spirit Gaea, making her one of the physically strongest heroes in the DCU [18]. She has been observed assisting in preventing large chunks of the Moon from crashing onto the Earth,[19] supporting the weight of bridges,[20], hefting entire railroad trains[21] and she has even managed to physically overpower Supergirl[22].

While not invulnerable, she is quite durable [23], capable of shrugging off high powered rifle fire with some pain but no injury[24], and even capable of surivivng a warp core explosion[25]. She is even durable enough to survive the depths of space for a period of time before running out of breath.

Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty, blessed Diana with great beauty and a loving heart.

Pallas Athena, the Goddess of wisdom and war, granted Diana great wisdom, intelligence and military prowess. It is Athena’s gift that has enabled Diana to master over a dozen languages (including those of alien origin), multiple complex crafts, sciences and philosophies, as well as her amazon legacy of over 3000 years of leadership, military strategy, and armed and unarmed combat. More recently Athena bound her own eyesight to Diana's, granting her increased empathy.[citation needed]

Artemis, Goddess of the hunt, animals and the Moon, graced Diana with the Eyes of the Hunter and Unity with Beasts. The Eye of the Hunter ability gives Diana a full range of enhanced senses. Unity with Beasts grants her the ability to communicate with all forms of animal life, as well as to calm even the most ferocious of beasts[26].

Hermes, the messenger God of speed, granted Diana superhuman speed, and the ability to fly. Through the an act of concentration, Diana can mystically defy the laws of gravity and propel herself through the air to achieve flight. She is capable of flying up to sublight speeds.[27] She is swift enough to deflect bullets, lasers and other projectiles with her virtually impenetrable bracelets.








Weather control

Storm is an extremely powerful human mutant, and has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to control the weather.[64] Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of weather over vast areas. She has been able to control both Earthly and extraterrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. She can control the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture, generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. She can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and is capable of summoning a hurricane,[65] as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

Her precise control over the atmosphere allows her to create special weather effects. She can create precipitation at higher or lower altitudes than normal, make whirlwinds travel pointing lengthwise in any direction, absorb ambient electromagnetism and output it as electric blasts from her body, flash freeze objects and people, coalesce atmospheric pollutants into acid rain or toxic fog, and summon wind currents strong enough to support her weight to elevate herself to fly at high altitudes and speeds. Her control over air is so great that she can even manipulate the air in a person's lungs. She can also bend light using moisture in the air and her manipulation of mist and fog to become partially transparent, and in later comics, almost completely invisible.

On rare occasions, Storm has demonstrated the ability to control natural forces that include cosmic storms, solar wind, ocean currents, and the electromagnetic field. She has demonstrated the ability to separate water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen via electrolysis, allowing her to breathe underwater. While in outer space, she is able to affect and manipulate the interstellar and intergalactic mediums. Storm can alter her visual perceptions so as to see the universe in terms of energy patterns, detecting the flow of kinetic, thermal and electromagnetic energy behind weather phenomena and bending this energy to her will.

Storm has shown to be sensitive to the dynamics of the natural world, and her psionic powers over weather are affected by her emotions. One consequence of this connection to nature is that she often suppresses extreme feelings to prevent her emotional state from resulting in violent weather. She has sensed a diseased and dying tree on the X-Mansion grounds, detected objects within various atmospheric mediums--including water, and sensed the incorrect motion of a hurricane in the Northern Hemisphere and the gravitational stress on the tides by the Moon and Sun as well as the distortion of a planet's magnetosphere.[66] Storm's mutant abilities are limited by her willpower and the strength of her body. Sentinels identify Storm as a possible Omega-level mutant.[67]

[edit] Magical potential

Storm's ancestry supports the use of magic and witchcraft.[68] Many of her ancestors were sorceresses and priestesses. Storm's matrilineal powers have even been linked to the real-world Rain Queens of Balobedu, the region from which her Sorceress Supreme ancestor, Ayesha, hails. The Mystic Arcana series deals with Storm's ancestor Ashake, who worships the Egyptian goddess Ma'at, also known as Oshtur—the mother of Agamotto.[69] Some of Storm's alternate universe selves possess considerable magical talent.[70] Although Storm has not developed her magical potential, it has been hinted at.[68] The Mystic Arcana series lists the characters with magic potential according to the Marvel Tarot deck. The Tarot asserts Storm as being "High Priestess," the First Tarot's choice one-third of the time. The other draws were the Scarlet Witch and Agatha Harkness. These three characters split the High Priestess card equally. On a separate note, it has been stated that Storm's spirit is so strong that she was able to host the consciousness of a manifestation body[71] of Eternity, a feat which very few Marvel characters can accomplish without dying.[72]

[edit] Combat and thievery

Storm has been additionally portrayed as a skilled thief, markswoman, and a gifted hand-to-hand fighter, trained by Achmed el-Gibar, Professor X, and Wolverine. By using superior strategy, Storm has overcome physically stronger foes like Callisto and the Crimson Commando in hand-to-hand combat. Storm is an excellent marksman with handguns. Storm is also fluent in Arabic and Swahili. As part of her paraphernalia, Storm carries a set of lock-picks (with which she has an extraordinary ability at picking locks) and her ancestral ruby, which allows inter-dimensional transportation with the help of her lightning.[64]

[edit] Physical abilities and traits

Storm's physiology grants her a total immunity to extreme weather conditions and temperatures of heat and cold.[73][74] Her body compensates for rapid decreases or increases in atmospheric pressure.[75] She can see in near-complete darkness and has superb dexterity.[76][77] Storm has been described as having one of the strongest wills among the X-Men, making her highly resistant to psychic attacks especially in tandem with electrical fields she creates around herself. Telepaths have found it difficult to track her down and probe her thoughts. Several of these traits are independent of her mutant status and are a result of her ancestry. Also, when utilizing her powers, Storm's eyes turn solid white.[64]




Personally, I think Storm could smash WW. It'd be pretty hard to beat somebody who could pretty much use a whole planet as a weapon. But then again, Wonder Woman is a straight up BRAWLER...she can throw down against Supes. It would be a long and big fight, but I think Storm could take her down.

Discuss.

On a side note, this picture intrigues me. I think Adam Hughes is the artist, right? I wonder why he would make WW look so pretty and sexy in this image and then give her those ugly-ass boots.

Why?
Mind you, Storm is an Omega Level mutant. She has the potential to transcend into a God-like form of nature...

Diana was a Goddess! She has defeated Ares God of War, she was the Goddess of Truth for about a year. She has the power of Gods.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing... I don't know enough about Wonder Woman to compare the two...

But has Storm ever been written with powers to her full potential?

Iceman also, I recall is also an omega level mutant... yet I haven't seen him written at his full potential.

Scarlett Witch needs to go away. and it would be even with the She-Hulk though I still think Diana would win.

Wonder Woman is a Goddess, and her powers have been increased dramaticlly since her reboot in 1987

Yep. Someone from DC said WW is second only to Superman in terms of power.

Has Storm ever been shown to really have all that much power? It's been a while since I've followed the X-Men, but Claremont always made sure to keep it clear that she was nowhere near as powerful as Thor.

When Byrne took over Wonder Woman, one of his major points was that DC had to concede that Wonder Woman was the second most powerful hero in the DC Universe, behind Superman. I think DC has stuck with that. Based on that, Wonder Woman should be able to take on the Hulk and win.

and Storm is so not that powerful. rolleyes these writers now a days take full liberty to interpret characters how they see fit.


WW isn't even the baddest chick in the DC universe, I'm pretty sure Supergirl, even though she's young, would mop the floor with Diana the Amazon. nod

Well, generally I think even potentially strong characters in Marvel are written to be weak generally... keeping the characters vulnurable...

Just the difference in writing style between Marvel and DC...

Maybe. But could Superman beat the Hulk? I was assuming he could and then extrapolating from that, since she's #2 at DC. I think WW vs. the Hulk would be a good match at least.

Dude smacked Black Bolt, the X-Men, Juggernaut, Avengers, Doc Samson, Fantastic Four, etc. etc. etc.
