    Cool line up. I wish Namor was used on the Avengers roster more often.

    Question; we all know the ‘classic’ pairings are Superman v. Thor, Batman v. Captain America, and Iron Man v. Wonder Woman (wait, is this a classic pairing? Does anyone give a shit about Iron Man v. Wonder Woman?).

    But am I the only one who thinks it should instead be; Batman v. Iron Man, Wonder Woman v. Thor, and Superman v. Captain American? While some of the power levels are disproportional at a glance, it makes a little more sense thematically IMO (Playboy vs Playboy, Mythic vs Mythic, Patriotic Icon vs Patriotic Icon). And if Batman can beat Superman in a fight. Cap shout totally be able to beat Superman in a fight *armscrossed*

    When I first started reading comics, Namor was an active Avenger, so I always associate him with the team.

    I’ve always thought the default pairing would be Iron Man/Green Lantern. Don’t know why. Wonder Woman doesn’t really have an Avengers equal (in the “classic” sense).

    I agree with your assessments for the most part, and I agree that if Batman can beat Superman, so should Cap. However, the pairing of Supes vs. Cap bothers me still. I don’t know why. Your reasoning makes sense, I just don’t like it.
