There were eleven battles fought between the two universes:
  • Aquaman (DC) vs. Namor (Marvel). Aquaman won by crushing Namor with a whale.
  • Elektra (Marvel) vs. Catwoman (DC). Elektra won by cutting off Catwoman's whip as she hung from a girder on a building under construction. Catwoman survived by falling into a dumpster filled with sand.
  • Flash (DC) vs. Quicksilver (Marvel). Flash won due to his superior speed.
  • Robin (DC) vs. Jubilee (Marvel). Robin won by using his cape as a decoy and then by tying up Jubilee.
  • Silver Surfer (Marvel) vs. Green Lantern (DC). Silver Surfer won when both collided with each other and released a huge explosion which knocked out Green Lantern but Silver Surfer was unfazed.
  • Thor (Marvel) vs. Captain Marvel (DC). Thor won when Captain Marvel was forced to change back to his alter ego Billy. Billy tried to change back but Thor used Mjolnir to intercept the lightning-bolt that would have transformed him back to normal, the resulting blow knocking Billy out and sending Thor's hammer flying off.
There were other primary battles, with the outcomes determined by a vote by the readers:
  • Superman (DC) vs. Hulk (Marvel). After exchanging punches and a burst of heat-vision, Superman wins with a one-punch knockout on the Hulk, although they were evenly matched in raw power (of note, this comic took place during the "Professor Hulk" phase, wherein the Hulk retained Bruce Banner's full intellect at the cost of full strength).
  • Spider-Man (Marvel) vs. Superboy (DC). With the advantage of his spider-sense, Spider-Man wins by tying up Superboy with impact webbing and electrocuting him with high voltage.
  • Batman (DC) vs. Captain America (Marvel). The match ends in uncertainty—though both are evenly matched after hours of combat, a sudden flushing of the sewer knocks Cap off balance as Batman manages to strike him with a Batarang. Batman rescues Cap from certain death via drowning, but Cap's unconsciousness from nearly drowning causes him to lose.
  • Wolverine (Marvel) vs. Lobo (DC). Wolverine beats Lobo in a brutal barfight which was largely off panel.
  • Storm (Marvel) vs. Wonder Woman (DC). After Diana drops Thor's hammer in order to allow the fight to happen as it was intended, Storm wins the battle after repeatedly hitting Diana with her lightning after a brief melee encounter.

It's true that some of the fights were not determined by fan vote, but the results of the votes would still have been influential. The narrative demanded a close race - 6 wins for one side, 5 wins for the other. The non-voted fights would have been dictated by this to an extent (I suspect this is why Namor drew the short straw as Marvel had to drop one somewhere thanks to the fan voted results).
