Since I was born back in the 1980s, I was introduced to a host of cartoon series that were linked to techno-fantasy and anime themes. I've done blog articles on the Thundercats in the past and I even did some redesigns of Liono and his gifted anthro-pride.
There are lots of posters on the internet that put Liono against Superman and HeMan against Superman. I even saw a long discussion thread on "SheRa VS The Hulk"; and the fanboys just could not make up their minds on who would win.

Yet today, I was thinking about what would happen, if HeMan and SheRa were to take on all of the Thundercats in an all-out brawl! Thats the sort of Epic Battle you could turn into a hit cartoon series or even a blockbuster movie. Of course they are all heroes and in general, heroes don't get involved in death matches... not unless you're a team of Avengers or Xmen and you live in the Marvel Universe and you have nothing better to do.... then you just start a Marvel Civil War and kill each other for nothing :)

I've heard that The Avengers movie franchise will be heading in that direction eventually... its rather pointless to me; but hey, when the Marvel editors and writers run out of ideas, they do sh*t like that LOL.

Btw, the image on the left is from a Spanish Wildstorm comic series titled "Thundrecats perros de guerra" which was not released in the US.

Now back to Heman & SHeRa Vs. Thundercats. Picking a winning group in this battle-royale will be easier said than done; after all, HeMan and SheRa both have mystical swords, but Liono has the Sword of Omens, which has mystical powers of its own. Most fans always believed that Liono's sword could do more than he was aware of, peer the air of mystery that surrounded it. Plus the rest of the Thundercats, when they fight as a singular force, can be pretty hard to beat.
But if I were to really pick a winner, I'd have to go with... the guy who wears the hairy underwear: HeMan. He just comes across as a more experienced fighter, with elite level combat skills - as opposed to Liono, who is actually a kid at heart. Of course Prince Adam is a youth as well, but Heman has always been more mature than Liono.
His sister, She-Ra, will probably take on all of the other Thundrcats [Cheetara, Panthro, Tygra and WilyKit & WilyKat]. SheRa may get beaten up pretty bad, but she'll probably survive with the aid of her sword [which can change form into anything that she wants].
The other T-Cats [like Lynx-O, Pumyra and Bengali] are left out of the mix in this scenario. And their presence would probably change things significantly. And Honestly, if old-man Mum-Ra joined the fight with all the Thundercats... then they'd dial up 1-800-Ass-Whoopin. And Heman would definitely lose.

And in the words of Kurt Angle: Oh its true... its damn true! :)
