    Captain Marvel (Carol) vs Green Lantern (Hal)

    Two formers’ pilots with Cosmic Powers from an alien hero and members of the most powerful team of superheroes from his respective universes.

    Can Captain Marvel absorb all the Green Lanterns light constructs/blast/attacks?

Carol could certainly absorb Hal's energy blasts, but I doubt she'd think to absorb his constructs (but it's possible).

    She has the seventh sense, how would this play in their battle?

Wouldn't be a factor, IMO. She rarely uses it. Most writers forget she even has it.

    What happens when She goes Binary or does, she even need to?

IF she manages to go Binary, the fight is a lot tougher for Hal. But considering how powerful Green Lantern is, it's still a toss up on who would win.

    No Prep
    Location Mars
    Who wins and how?

Hal fashioned his own ring from his own willpower and the after-effects of that were felt throughout the galaxy. It was later revealed his ring is an extension of himself. He is the ring and the ring is him. When Kyle "The Alley Rat" Rayner once tried it on, he was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of willpower contained within it. Hal beat a Parallax possessed Sinestro solo (among several Yellow Lanterns at once) as well as blowing up Warworld.

Let's put that in perspective about beating a Parallax possessed Sinestro. Why is that such a big deal? Because he strikes fear even in the heart of the Spectre himself. While Hal was possessed by Parallax, he actually BEAT the Spectre. And Hal beat a Parallax possessed Sinestro while taking on multiple Yellow Lanterns at once.

Then there is beating General Zod while the Kryptonian was amped by the power of two suns and made it look easy. And before anyone denies this, the writer who penned the issue itself confirmed Zod was amped on his Twitter page so this feat is legitimate.

I could go on, but what's the point? Hal is in a class all his own. As powerful as Carol is at her base power level and as Binary, I just don't see her winning this one "at all". Hal is going to beat her before she even has a chance to go Binary and even then, that's no guarantee of victory even if she did absorb enough power to go Binary.

Hal wins.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
