For years, WizKids' Heroclix have been giving fans and table-top gamers the chance to rewrite history's greatest comic book battles. After decades of wondering who would really win in a fight between Hulk and the Thing, Batman and Bane or even Superman and Thor, Heroclix provided a "definitive" way for fans to settle all bets.Originally billed as one of the greatest fights in the history of the universe, Superman versus Muhammad Ali didn't quite live up to the slugfest we'd all envisioned. That's what happens when two generally solid gentlemen work together to stop an alien invasion.
Now, Heroclix will finally allow us to learn which of the heavyweights would truly come out on top in a boxing match unrivaled in hype with an exclusive set coming out this summer.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten.

Superman is the best. Just the absolute best. And if you disagree, I'm so sorry for your wrongness, but we're not here to argue about how wrong you could potentially be, we're here to talk about Superman's best team-ups.

Muhammad Ali finds the Man of Steel and Earth's greatest fighter battling for the right to defend our planet in a contest against a malevolent alien race. Yes!
