Are you more of a Marvel or DC fan? Do you think Batman could beat Superman? How about Iron Man vs. Captain America? Well, to tell you the truth, Spawn could more than likely destroy your favorite superhero in a fight. Unless your favorite is Spawn, of course.

Now, it's time to explain!

1. Spawn Can't Really Die Unless He's Defeated By Holy Powered Weaponry

So right off the bat we know it's pretty much impossible to beat Spawn unless you have a holy powered weapon to use. And unfortunately, most heroes in Marvel and DC don't carry around weapons forged in Heaven.

2. His Suit Is A Weapon Alone!

Spawn's signature black and white suit is based on a fictional magical substance called necroplasm. And it's fueled by his central nervous system, which allows him to have complete control over the suit. It can be used to create chains, spikes, and other weapons. Additionally, it turns his cape into a limb-severing weapon. The suit also protects Spawn at all times, even when he's unconscious.

Notable heroes he could defeat with only his suit: Daredevil, The Punisher, Green Arrow, Captain America, Cyborg, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Catwoman.

3. Spawn Has Superpowers That Outdo Almost Every Mainstream Superhero

This is where Spawn gains an edge over a lot of the more popular heroes out there. From time manipulation, soul manipulation, shape shifting, and dimensional manipulation, all the way to magic and phasing powers, Spawn can do it all. And that's only the tip of the iceberg. Spawn was also known to have divine powers (powers received directly from a god or god-like being), which made him even more invincible. Did I mention he's also strong enough to throw buildings with ease?

Notable heroes Spawn could defeat in a super-powered battle: Thor, Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, The Flash, Captain Marvel.

Adding onto that, Spawn is a master at multiple hand-to-hand combat styles (karate, kung-fu, hapkido, and jujitsu, just to name a few) and even handling most weaponry. He's actually so skilled he doesn't choose to use his powers most of the time!

Notable heroes Spawn could defeat in hand-to-hand combat: Captain America, Black Panther, Batman, Daredevil, Nightwing, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Man, The Punisher, Deadpool

4. Spawn Is Already Dead

Well, it's almost impossible to beat this guy already, and adding immortality into the mix just proves the point even more. Spawn has died and traveled through hell as much as you've traveled through your house. So saying he's immortal is even an understatement.

I think it's fairly obvious most of the popular Marvel and DC heroes can't take on Spawn. One of the only characters I actually think stands a chance is Ghost Rider, but even he would have a hard time in this battle.

And now you know why Spawn isn't brought up in most debates: he'd usually win in a landslide against most other heroes.
