    Default Which character is the Rumbles midpoint between Batman and Superman

    If Batman's composite is the best representation of the low end Rumble heroes (not counting normal humans) and Superman's composite is the best representation of the high end Rumble heroes (not counting cosmics and whatever Thanos is) ...

    Then, based on feats, who's composite is the best representation of the midpoint between the two extremes?

    Spider-Man? Aquaman? The Thing? Someone else?

    Genuinely curious. Oh, and standard rumble settings.

    In terms of strength/durability? Or also with personality/skills etc??

    Probably someone like non-Binary Carol Danvers or Classic Rogue.

    Except you’d arguably also want a midpoint of speed and genius.

    Maybe Booster Gold? Or the Thunderbolts Mach... whatever number he’s up to now? Guardian or Vindicator?

    Someone in that kinda space anyway.

    And no, I don’t mean Carol is analogue. Or hexadecimal.

    The answer is Composite Superman:

    Can we please (the sake of Rumbles clarity) refer to that guy as "Composite Legionnaire"? Because that's what he is. Or even "SuperBatMan"? Because that's what he looks like.

    And yes, I'm looking for the overall physical midpoint character between Bats' and Supes' composite feats.

    That means strength, durability, stamina, speed (travel/reflexes/reaction), sensory abilities, energy projection, etc.

    Do I hear another for 616 Captain Marvel Carol Danvers?

    Or is there a better candidate?

    I like Beadle's answer, yeah. Carol or Rogue probably.

    Serious answer: Spider-man. He is clearly superhuman enough to be well above the low end, and yet absolutely not as powerful as Superman. In terms of strength, toughness, and especially speed, Spider-man is a solid midpoint between Batman and Superman. However, when it comes to technology, Spider-man is a bit lower tech than either Batman or Superman.

    Superman can basically planet bust, whereas batman can bust down walls. So...I'll say Monkey D Luffy....

    Actually, Im changing my answer.

    Iron Man. Class 80 sounds close to Class 100, but really it isn't. Like at all. Plus he's got the whole billionaire, technology thing going for him.

    I think Tony is as far above Bruce in physicality as Clark is to Tony personally.

    This works fairly well for me. :D

    Ironic, given who A-Ko's parents happen to be.
