Having super powers is nooo guarantee that one will get out of a dangerous situation. One can have an inappropriate power or just fail to deal with the situation because of fear. Here is a preview scene from a spider man comic book, Amazing Spider-Man #636. http://www.comicbookresources.com/prev_img.php?pid=5628&pg=4 Whose super powers would you like to have to survive an encounter with lions in this scene?

The Beyonder, Dr. Strange Superman, Hulk, Phantom Girl, Amazing Man, Aireo of the Inhumans, Storm, Captain Everything, Unus the Untouchable, suited in armours of Iron Man or a Rocket Red, Human Torch and Green Lantern and The Tick. To name a few.

The Invisible Woman's force field would be nice. The Flash's means you're nowhere near them. Giant-Man's makes them kittens. Even Stone Boy would be safe!

How about Kitty Pride's phasing power?

Superpowers?

The Phantom could have these fellas, with or without his Colt .45s.

Interesting choices. I think that the Phantom would need those guns. The Invisible woman's force field would protect her but she should concentrate on getting the heck outta there. the same goes for Kitty Pryde and her power when you look at her in the same light as the Invisible woman. Giant-man's size matters and stone boy should be safe...I think.

Here are some other super powers: Not captain caveman's because he suffers from power failures, matter -eater lad will have to eat them BEFORE he is eaten and you had BETTER pray that you get the right powers if you have an H-dial. I would not mind having Mon-el's abilities. I am not too sure about ultra boy, vixen, insect queen and animal man's powers though. Colossus' power should protect one who is facing lions.

All Tarzan would need is his knife or an elephant herd!
Comment by Julian Gift on July 5, 2010 at 9:53pm
I would go for the elephant herd myself.

Most 'merely olympic-level' superfolk would, but the Phantom fights wild animals every day after breakfast just to keep in shape.

Another mighty jungle fighter was Morgan the Mighty. There is also the Jungle Girl.
Comment by Figserello on July 7, 2010 at 9:11pm
As an Australian resident, I have to swear that the Phantom trumps all other jungle heroes, and could probably give Tarzan a run for his inherited wealth.

Otherwise they will throw me out of this country.

(The Phantom has a big following here.)

But, I suppose most jungle heroes fight fully grown male lions as a matter of course. They probably don't even mention it when they are down the pub. It would be like me saying "Today I filled in 25 forms." No-one would be interested.

And Ka-Zar could bring Sabu to the fight...

I remember the cover of a comic book that had featured Tarzan fighting a lion whilst th eother members of the pride was watching the fight. Brave man. I would have run away fast enough to unseat the cheetah as the fastest land animal. What about you?
