Obviously this was something most of us were already thinking but I think if Cryptozoic goes with Rivals - Superman vs Lex Luthor it would be perfect.

I think the 2 card type system would work great with Suparman being Heroes/Super Powers and Lex being Villains/Equipment.

Then you can run a 2v2 game with Batman/Superman versus Joker/Lex Luthor. I think it would balance buying your types against both your opponent and your teammate and in a way that fits thematically better than the original team mode from the first game's rulebook.

What do all of you think?

I could see that. I'd rather they just went single types, to make it a bit more divergent from BvJ. Super Powers for Superman and Equipment for Lex. A (super)Man vs. (super)Machine showdown.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Yeah.

I've already divided up the decks to separate Batman and Joker decks.

This way I can play Superman by Batman.

Of course Batman will win.

Other possibilities:

Green Lantern vs Sinestro
Wonder Woman vs Circe or vs Pantheon of Gods (I was never a fan of Cheetah)
Teen Titans vs Deathstroke

I was thinking of Green Lantern vs Sinestro but I did't think it would be as thematically linked with the similar oversized card structure Batman vs Joker has.

I would like to see Wonder Woman vs ... as well, but I can't think of a good technology/equipment villain for her. Thoughts?

Technology against Wonder Woman? Wouldn't WW be the technology user with a sundry of weapons, armor and that giant Amazon cannon?

Sorry, the thought was how to provide a comparable Rivals with the current oversized abilities so I was thinking Heroes/Super Powers against Villains/Equipment... thus Superman vs Luthor.

Nothing to be sorry about. I was just realizing that WW is more of an equipment user than one would think. Lasso, sword, shield, gauntlets, tiara, invisible jet, etc.

You are right on that note.

Though her New 52 "Demi-God" status throws a kink in that... we will assume classic Wonder Woman though (haha)

Shazam vs Black Adam would really cause me to ascend into Geek Nirvana. Of course since they are light/dark mirrors of each other the whole division of super powers/equipment may need tweeking.

I could see a Rock of Eternity location as well as WHIZ Radio Station

Heroes could be the other Fawcett heroes like Ibis, Bulletman, Bulletgirl etc

Villians would be Dr Sivanna, Mr Mind etc

The decks definitely build themselves readily. Wisdom of Solomon, Strength of Hercules, Stamina of Atlas, Power of Zeus, Courage of Achilles, and Speed of Mercury along with Black Adam's equivalents are no brainers for Super Powers. Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr. and Tawky Tawny are obvious choices along with Isis, Osiris, and Sobek for heroes and villains. 7 deadly enemies of man, Ibac, Sabbac, the Council of Wizards, Wizard Shazam, Blaze, Satanus, The Shadow Pact are all possibilities. Equipment would be a bit of a stretch, but it could be done at a low level without seeming too tortured..

If they do Superman comes next (Which, how does he not?) Then I would prefer Superman Vs Darkseid or even Doomsday. But Lex wouldn't be so bad either.

Some other fun head-to-head battles:

Black Canary Vs. Lady Shiva
Green Lantern Vs. Sinestro
Wonder Woman Vs. Ares
The Flash Vs. Captain Cold
Hawkgirl Vs. Amazo
Green Arrow Vs. Deathstroke
Starfire Vs. Blackfire
