Superman vs Captain America by samuraiminister Superman vs Captain America by samuraiminister
This is the final image in my Superman vs Avengers series. I know it isnt great, but I feel like Ive been doing these for awhile and Im just kinda done. Was done in Corel Painter with the Airbrush tool.
So, who do you think would win this chess match of the ages?

Superman would win. I mean, he can read minds, right?

...give DC a year. They'll plaster "Superman's New Power!!!" on the cover to sell three more copies that month.

From what ive seen of both charters Cap is a better strategist so he should win.

I don't know if one of them CAN win this over the other. The chess board might spontaneously explode from the tension before anyone can be checked.

Oh yea, there was that stand alone series back in the 80's where Superman was challenged by an evil chess playing robot. Over the course of six issues they battled it out for the fate of the world.

If you think about it, the toughest and loyalist piece on the board... I'd say he's a queen or the "champion" as the piece is sometimes called C:

Captain America for sure. He is not nearly as invincible as superman, so he's had to strategies more for safety purposes. Go Capt!

Heh, great one.

Supes can think way faster than any human, but Cap is the world's best strategist. Tough one.

Fun fact. in the red son comic BIZZARO managed to beat LEX of all people at chess......

Yeah, I remember that one.

That's why Lex was so obsessed with destroying Superman; if the 'slow-minded' Bizarro could be this smart, Lex feared how smart Superman really was, and Lex couldn't take the idea of anyone being smarter than him.

That's no surprise considering Clark has a superbrain. Dude's like a supercomputer on steroids.

So if Tony can beat reed at chess, could Supes do that to? To Reed I mean.

Maybe. Reed might be smarter but Superman can easily outthink him.

Smarter or Intelligent? The difference is subtle but huge. Superman's is basically a genius of high calibur just like Reed. The only difference is one of them isn't ambitious enough to actually apply all that natural talent to nurture that intellect. And with his super speed it wouldn't even take long for him to learn. Being smart is something you learn. Intellect is born into you. And it's pretty obvious they both hit the lottery in the gene pool with the latter.
