    Default Composite DCEU: Who is the strongest comic character it could beat?

    The speed of Flash!
    The resilence of Doomsday!
    The strength of Superman!
    The Beard of Jason Momoa!
    The magic of Ares and Enchantress!
    The Accuracy of Deadshot!
    The Equipment of the Gods!

    You get the picture. What does it take to stop this beast?

    Depends in if you want to get weird or not.

    Because there's this guy from My Hero Academia, if you answer his question, you become his slave.

    So it's the best of each character, not each character stacked up and added together?
    "So full of hate were our eyes
    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    Does it make a difference?

    A stacked version is not going to be much better than a non-stacked version since Flash is way faster than anyone, Superman and Doomsday are way stronger than anyone, etc, so adding minuscule amounts of strength and speed don't exactly change it by an order of magnitude or anything.

    This seems like a typical non-stacked composite. Besides, I generally tend to assume composites are non-stacked, otherwise it's usually just a numbers game.

    With Flash's speed though, which is the biggest thing going for it, it can take out anything all the way up to Thing/Colossus level people with superspeed heat vision spam/fairly significant strength, especially if they get Diana's sword.

    Anything beyond that, I really doubt their ability to hurt.

    Obviously, they beat all manner of characters with esoteric or hard to deal with abilities that have no real superspeed/low level superspeed in the Arena, the only ones they can't kill being people that actually can't be killed by them at all (they could toss most of them into space though). It's when you start getting into class 80-90ish people that you start having difficulty with.

    This is only with respect to comic books. Manga and other media are a different beast.

    Edit: But yeah, only Flash speed+Superman Strength+HeatVision will be useful for most fights. The rest of the things are inconsequential except in the cases where they have to tank hits (and if they're not able to kill a character with a huge amount of time spent wailing on them, they're probably not going to kill them anyway).

    For strength, having a stacked composite of Superman, Doomsday and Wonder Woman is much better than having just Superman's strength. Same thing with superspeed with Flash and Superman. So I think it would definitely matter.

    So...it'd be what, 2-3 times stronger than Supes and only a little faster than Flash (dubious if Supes is even 1/3rd as fast as Flash)? That's really not much of a difference for all practical purposes.
