    Default Justice League Battle royale with a twist

    Eight year old (Pre-Powers) Clark vs Eight year old Bruce vs Eight Year Old Hal Jordan vs Eight year old Barry Allen! Who wins this battle of the Justice League before they were heroes!
    There is no "overkill". There is only "open fire" and "I need to reload.".

    I like to think the 90s was the time when comics hit puberty. They’d grown out of being endearing but hadn’t yet figured out where to channel their emotions to not be utterly whiny cocks. -Beadle

    I feel like we just had a thread like this?

    There... is not much to off of. Certain versions of Clark have been shown standing up to bullies and learning to fight from Pa Kent, so maybe he is the safe choice.
    "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"

    In the Silver Age, Child Batman was able to beat up a grizzly bear, sans all of his training

    It's going to come down to Bruce versus Clark. Hal and Barry aren't a major factor. It's actually a interesting matchup. A country-bred farmboy who has been living/working on a farm (Firearm training, perhaps) versus a city kid with some martial arts training.

    I might lean Bruce, just because I don't see Clark fighting at that age, but it would be close. Clark should have a big strength advantage over the rest.

    8 year old Clark demolishes the rest of the kiddie leaguers.

    He is still naturally bulletproof, as superhuman invulnerability was his the moment his pod opened on Earth, in virtually every retelling. Meaning he's not going feel any punch, kick, headbutt, or bodyslam the others throw at him.

    Plus, strength, reflexes, stamina, and endurance were usually well beyond any other 8-year-old (and also well beyond most adult unaugmented humans).

    8- year- old Bruce has 2 more years with living parents and no martial art training whatsoever.

    The only 8-year-olds on DC Earth that Lil Clark has to fear is Lil Diana and Lil Arthur.

    Yeesh, well, that's it if you remove Clark's powers then.

    Which the OP does

    Which the OP does
    8-year-old Bruce beating up bears is Pre-COIE. And if we're going by pre-COIE stories, then all the other 8-year-olds are going nighty- night in a heartbeat.

    Because The OP states pre-powers, not de-powered. The issue here is that OP doesn't realize at no point in Clark's main canon history was he ever just a mere mortal. Clark always had the superhuman invulnerabilty from the start.

    Bruce beating up bears at age 8 in pre-COIE is absolutely nothing to pre- COIE (or post-COIE or Rebirth) Clark at age 8 who was still clearly superhuman at that age.

    May as well DQ Lil Clark out of this contest, because if you have to de-power an opponent to make a fight interesting, it already inherently isn't.
