Who Would Win? Matter-Eater Lad vs. Parasite

Welcome to our speculative stadium, where legends duke it out and winner takes all! All what? No one knows! We’re just here to have fun!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the United States, so our fight this week is between two of the greatest eaters in the DC Universe-Matter-Eater Lad vs. Parasite!

Tenzil Kem is a Bismollian, a race whose food was turned inedible and developed the physiology to eat and digest any matter. Joining the Legion of Superheroes and taking the name Matter-Eater Lad, his metabolism also grants him superspeed.

Rudy Jones was originally a janitor in Metropolis. A freak accident changed him into the monstrous Parasite, and left him consumed by a constant craving for energy. He’s able to drain and use the life force, superpowers, and knowledge of whoever he touches.

If these two powerful eaters came to blows (maybe over the last turkey leg), who would win? Tell us who you think it would be and why, below!

  • Matter-Eater Lad

Tenzil’s speed would help him avoid Parasite, but I don’t see his eating abilities allowing him to beat Parasite.

Matter-Eater Lad would win by depriving Parasite of energy with his super speed.
