Seriously honest legitimate question here.

For example, one could argue that, say, Captain Marvel (DC) beats Darkseid because Darkseid's lost to Superman and Orion. But another could argue it wouldn't be that easy since Darkseid's no-sold attacks from Supergirl and Lobo (separately, but yeah).

Both happened. Both are valid. But trying to get people to agree is fruitless. In some cases, the defeated feel like winners (I won't name names, cause of board rules).

So my question is, why do you personally battleboard?

All characters are on topic, so you get the Hulk fans, the Thor fans, the Cosmic fans, etc. That variety of detailed knowledge is fun when discussing "how would so and so act in xyz situations".

It's important to remember that ANY character can beat any other character. that makes the odds 1/100. Then you start figuring out power levels, abilities, etc., that would influence the odds of one character beating an other.

The irony is: on this board, if a character defeats another character 80/100 times, we focus on those 80 times. The paid writers and editors, however, look at how valuable the story can be if you focus on those 20 times in which the underdog wins. \:\)
