(*Cues: Invader - Jim Johnston*)
Wiz: Superheroines. Millions have been drawn to these modern myths of comic book lore.
Boomstick: Or you could, uh, just be drawn to the way they're drawn.
Wiz: Like Anna Marie, the Rogue.
Boomstick: And Diana Prince, the Wonder Woman.
Wiz: He's Boomstick and I'm Wizard.
Boomstick: And we're here to watch two chicks duke it out! CATFIGHT!
Wiz: It's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills-
Boomstick: And maybe a few other things.
Wiz: -to find out who would win... a Death Battle.
(*Cues: X-Men (2000) - The X-Jet )
Wiz: Rogue has possessed a variety of different powers over the years. For this duel in particular, we will use the most well known version; the original iteration from the comics and television show. Her deadliest weapon is her own skin. With just a touch, she absorbs a person's memories, talents, personalities, and abilities, whether superhuman or not, to use them herself.
Boomstick: Too bad it knocks them out cold. And if she holds on long enough, it's game over.
Wiz: Tenacious foes like Juggernaut can resist it, but in the end, nobody is safe from Rogue's parasitic touch. For every second of contact, Rogue can keep these powers for a full minute. Though sometimes, there's unforeseen side effects.
(*Cues: X-Men Theme - Hard Rock Remix*)
Boomstick: She held on to Ms. Marvel for so long she absorbed her powers permanently. Now, she's got super strength, speed, and near invulnerability. Not that I blame her, though. I'd be holdin' on to Ms. Marvel for as long as I could! Plus, then when she's unconscious I could...
Wiz: She also gained a seventh sense, the ability to unconsciously predict her opponents' moves.
Boomstick: But her seventh sense doesn't seem to always work. That or the writers just forgot about it 'cause, uh, Rogue gets her ass kicked a lot.
Wiz: For plot convenience.
Boomstick: And damn, she's got a hot ass.
Boomstick: Hey, that counts as a superpower in my book, Wiz! But while she's not invincible, she doesn't have any real weaknesses either. She's a classy southern belle, who I'd like to take out to dinner.
Wiz: Who can fly, lift buildings, and kill people just by touching them.
Boomstick: Never mind.
Rogue: Ain't that enough?
(*Cues: Wonder Woman (2009) - Ending Theme*)
Wiz: To the uneducated nerd, Wonder Woman may seem a cheap clone of Superman.
Boomstick: With Superboobies!
Wiz: But in reality, she's a whole different story. Created from earth, born by gods, trained by ancient warriors-
Wiz: Boomstick, that's not true!
Boomstick: See, I can do it too Wiz!
Wiz: Wonder Woman is the incredibly powerful and near invincible ambassador of Themyscira, and self-appointed protector of the Earth.
Boomstick: And she dresses like a stripper. A patriotic stripper!
Wiz: Diana Prince has been trained by the Amazons as a master combatant since childhood. She dueled the best of the best for the right to be crowned Wonder Woman. Her unearthly powers are divine, granted by ancient Greek gods and goddesses. From Demeter, she received superhuman strength and durability.
(*Cues: Justice League - Main Theme*)
Boomstick: 'And you know that bitch Mailman god with the wingy shoes?
Boomstick: Whatever. He gave Wonder Woman the ability to fly and move at hypersonic speed.
Wiz: She was given numerous other powers from enhanced senses, animal rapport, and blessings of wisdom and empathy.
Boomstick: Aside from the obvious cannons rested right below her neck, she's got a pretty bizarre mix of weaponry. Her Lasso of Truth is a piece of unbreakable string that, well, makes you tell the truth.
Hippolyta: What other depraved thoughts must you be thinking?
Col. Steve Trevor: God, your daughter's got a nice rack.
Boomstick: Hell yeah, she does!
Wiz: She uses her tiara as a long range throwing weapon, using its razor sharp edge to slice open her enemies' throat.
Wiz: She has persevered throughout the years, fighting a huge variety of foes, even killing the Greek God of War, Ares.
Boomstick: Hear that, Kratos? A chick beat you to it!
Wonder Woman bashed the edge of the shield down to Mad Harriet.
Wonder Woman: Let's see you smile now!
(*Cues: Rogue's Theme - X-Men vs Street Fighter*)
Rogue is shown flying in the sky. The Invisible Jet descends in background and Wonder Woman flies out. She kicks Rogue in the face, and both superheroines fly down to the ground.
(*Cues: Wonder Woman (2009) - The Battle/Origins*)
Wonder Woman throws her tiara at Rogue, runs behind her, and roundhouse kicks her. The kick sends Rogue flying, Wonder Woman then flies after her, kicking her multiple times before dashing behind her again and punching her. She grabs a dazed Rogue with the Lasso of Truth and slams her on the ground numerous times, drags Rogue near her, and uppercuts her in the air. She darts around the airborne Rogue with a flurry of punches.
(*Cues: X-Men Theme - Hard Rock Remix )
When she punches Rogue in the face however, she absorbs some of Wonder Woman's powers, she absorbs more of her powers when she takes off her glove and touches her leg. While Wonder Woman breaks free, Rogue strikes her from behind, elbows her in the neck, and sends her soaring with a quick kick combo. Wonder Woman throws out her Lasso of truth again, but Rogue grabs it, tugs it, and slams her on the ground. Rogue flies behind her again and launches her tiara again, but Rogue blocks it, -propelling it back on her head- kicks her in the air and uppercuts her. Wonder Woman stops Rogue with several punches, but her finishing kick is blocked and she is knocked in the air.
(*Cues: Wonder Woman (2009) - The Battle/Origins again*)
Rogue flies after her in the air, and is responded by a commotion of punches, Rogue blocks on of them and delivers some of her own, which is later black by Wonder Woman. She is then knocked down to the ground by a dive kick delivered by Wonder Woman. Both combatants fly down to the ground. Woman Woman dashes towards her with a flying kick, but it is interrupted by Rogue, who grabs her.
Rogue: Good night, sugar!
Rogue proceeds to plant a kiss of death upon Wonder Woman's lips, killing her.
Rogue then strikes a pose.
(*Cues: X-Men (2000) - Main Theme*)
Boomstick: Woo-hoo-hoo! This goes down in history as the best DEATH BATTLE! ever!
Wiz: Poor Wonder Woman was more than a match for Rogue, but then she touched Rogue's face.
Boomstick: Wonder Woman is a trained fighter, so naturally she would strike her opponent's weakest spots, like the neck, stomach, joints and, well, the face.
Wiz: In the end, her failure was a result of her thorough Amazonian training.
Boomstick: And her stripper outfit! Her leg was just begging the be grabbed there. Though personally, uh, I might have grabbed elsewhere.
Wiz: Wonder Woman's powers may be godly, but Rogue's taken similar powers before, so there's no reason to say she couldn't here. Adding Wonder Woman's strength and speed to Rogue's own power gave her a huge advantage, drastically turning the tide.
Boomstick: A few high flying combos and our favorite X-Girl had Wonder Woman on the ropes.
Wiz: And with her combined reflexes, speed, and seventh sense, she outmaneuvered Wonder Woman with one fatal kiss.
Boomstick: Rogue sure "made out" in this fight!
Wiz: The winner is Rogue.
