    Pretty sure it's a clean sweep of victories for the Marvel characters. Phantom Vs Moon Knight is the closest fight though.

    Same goes for the DC characters, with Batman's gadgets being the difference against Phantom.

    Mandrake vs either Strange or Fate is a horror stomp.

    Flash Gordon vs Peter Quill (Star Lord)

    Not sure on this one as I don't know anything about the comic book version of Star Lord.

    Mandrake vs Dr. Strange

    Mandrake is a master of illusion but Strange can do everything he can do plus just about infinitely more.

    Lothar vs Luke Cage

    Lothar was the world's strongest man by real life standards and probably exaggerated but Cage is way superhuman by comparison.

    Phantom vs Moonknight

    Minus Moonknight's equipment, not sure.

    Flash Gordon vs Adam Strange

    I don't think this is any contest. Flash Gordon has no chance.

    Mandrake vs Dr. Fate (or more fun Zatanna)

    Oh god. Mandrake is a cool character. What have you got against him?

    Lothar vs Bronze Tiger

    No idea.

    Phantom vs Batman.

    Again, the Phantom in an awesome character but I don't think he has much chance. Could be some feats I don't know about.

    Mandrake is a closer match with Zatara, and even then it's just a less terrible stomp than Strange, Fate, or Zatanna.

    What if in an intersecting battle:
    Mandrake summons King Features' Prince Valiant.
    Strange summons Marvel's Black knight.
    and Fate DC's Shining Knight.
    The three Knights thus do battle, who remains victorious?

    I..... think Shining Knight has the best feats? Maybe? Non of them are popular or explored Rumbles characters lol

    Anyways, pretty sure The Phantom is the only one with competitive match ups in the OP. Fights would be close-ish but he should still lose

    Flash Gordon vs Peter Quill (Star Lord)/Adam Strange

    Star Lord is about as close to "street level" as a cosmic hero can get, honestly, he's basically a near-peak human with guns and a jetpack, which, is basically what Glash Gordon is. I think Quill might be able to trip Gordon up with a little trickery, but otherwise, I think they're pretty evenly matched.

    The only Adam story I know is a Morrison-JLA era tale where he's basically Flash Gordon Batgod, so I'm not liking Gordon's chances here.


    Mandrake vs Dr. Strange/Dr. Fate or Zatanna

    Fate and Strange are way over the top for Mandrake, even in their weaker years, and Zatanna is pretty broken, she just needs a single sentence. I can't think of a good match-up off the bat for him in Marvel or DC.


    Lothar vs Luke Cage/Bronze Tiger

    Luke is definitely higher up the chain than Lothar, not sure about Tiger.


    Phantom vs Moonknight/Batman

    Phantom's strong, but I don't see him having enough to outdo either of them.

    Bronze Tiger is a legitimate high level CBPH with some deadly standard weapons to boot. What are Lothars feats?

    Do you know anything about Shaman from Alpha Flight? I'm wracking my brain for lower end magicians

    Doctor Mist was shown to be a bit of a fraud, right? John Constantine is explicitly a lower end mage. As far s Marvel goes what about Doctor Druid?

    maybe mandrake could fight Jean Grey as I seem to remember him throwing mind bolts or "mental" bolts. I wonder how much phantom is ahead of Batman and moon knight in speed department. he has some decent speed feats of shooting in a blink of eye so maybeee he could shoot them but given their Kevlar armour even a blood listed morals off phantom is ultimately doing squat against them. he better pray moon knight isn't in his face cutting fetish mood. he won't care if he does or does not die looking upon him unmasked.

    I think DOE Phantom could call upon the supernatural panthers or tigers? Which gave him some superhuman strength speed and abilities.
