Who would win? Superman vs. ALI

About the above: What happens when the world’s most legendary fighter enters the ring against the world’s greatest hero?

Well, if you were around in 1978 to pick up a copy of SUPERMAN VS. MUHAMMAD ALI, then you know what it was like. The historic one-shot featured the Man of Steel teaming up with The Greatest Boxer of All Time to stave off an alien invasion of Earth.

DC will be reprinting the story — co-plotted and written by Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams with art from Adams — in two formats: The first is a deluxe hardcover edition featuring an expanded sketch section and additional content with a new cover by Adams. For all those fans of the book in its tabloid form there is also a limited edition hardcover in the original trim-size with the complete, original cover of the landmark issue. Both collections will hit in the fall of 2010.

But here's the real interesting part - this statue is $200, and it's awesome. How great would it look on my shelf? Great-tastic!

Purchase aside, you have to ask yourself, who would win this fight in real life?

Clark Kent got his ass kicked in a diner in Superman II. Granted, he didn't have his Krypton powers at the time, but it does show that he's susceptible to a right hook. You also have to look at the fact that most of Superman's fights include throwing people, not punches.

Ali flies like a butterfly. Superman is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Ali stings like a bee. Superman is more powerful than a locomotive. Ali can take a punch (Ali vs. Frazier classic rope-a-dope bout). Superman can make the world spin backwards.

It's hard to compare an alien vs. the greatest boxer of all time. But what if Ali had kryptonite in his gloves? Now things get interesting. Superman couldn't even swim with a kryptonite necklace on.

So here's the way I see Vegas handicapping the fight. Superman is a -600/750 favorite. If kryptonite is involved, the odds change. Superman -320/200. In either case, the over/under for rounds is 3. Ali can avoid the man of steel and dance around the ring for at least a few rounds before he takes a Krypton-uppercut to the chin.



Whatever you do - DO NOT shoot a dog in the butt and take pictures of it while listening to '80s hip-hop. If you do, the driver will throw you off the bus.

The point ... is to have no point.

maybe another reason why I'm not a big fan of basketball


Funny Because It's True

So why am I hitching my wagon to a dinosaur? Because change is possible. And those who evolve can survive. I just hope we evolve.
