QUESTION:

Wouldn't you rather have Jedi powers (lightsaber included) instead of Superman powers?

Assume kryptonite and the dark side exists. Assume everything else is normal (i.e. you can make the world spin backward and have time reverse. that's just stupid. buildings would fall down.)

Here are the reasons why yes is the correct answer:
1. lightsaber
2. mind control over the weak
3. no kryptonite issues
4. lift up toilet seats without touching the toilet
5. choke fools with your mind!
6. you can still live a somewhat normal life because your powers are more subtle so people won't wan...

A whole group of jedi would not be a match for superman. But if i had to choose, i'd choose to be jedi because having kryptonite is just too much of a disadvantage... Being pwn'd by a human whose simply holding a kryptonite is just wrong...

Also, jedi do not have the power to life toilet seats if i'm not mistaken. They only have force push and force pull. I don't ever recall them having force lift. You can lift people while force choking but can you force choke a toilet seat?

Are you smokin' crack? You tryin' to tell me a Jedi doesn't have the power to lift things, such as a toilet seat? Don't you remember when Yoda was training Luke in Degobah, and part of the training was for Luke to use the force to lift his X-Wing out of the water? If a Jedi could lift an X-Wing out of that muck, then I'm sure he'd have no difficulty w/a toilet seat.
Classic quote from Yoda in that scene was, “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

Dude, if Luke can lift an x-wing which probably way a couple of thousand tons then he'd be stronger than superman?

I don't ever remember having a force lift in any of the Starwars video games but i could be wrong.

I've never seen a Jedi move more than a few objects at the same time. It would take them forever to get through all the buttons and zippers. Superman, on the other hand, would use his blinding speed. Advantage, Superman.

Since this seems like a Jedi biased question, here are some Superman arguments:
1. Who needs a lightsaber when you can bounce bullets (or laser guns) off your chest?
1.5. Superhuman strength. Screw the death star, you can destroy a planet himself.
2. You can fly.
3. You are so fast, people can't see you, which is nearly the equivalent of stopping time. The only superhero known to be faster than Superman is the Flash, and he's only slightly faster.
4. You have heat ray vision.
5. You have x-ray vision.
6. You can freeze anything.
7. Superman doesn't need a toilet. He's so strong he can just expel all bodily fluids into space.
8. Why choke fools with your mind when you could just pop their heads off like a pimple?
9. Kryptonite is Superman's weakness, but in Episode II, you see a bunch of Jedi die in many ways. Superman would have destroyed that whole arena in a blink of an eye.

1. Try bouncing off kryptonite bullets
1.5 Death star with lead and kryptonite armor?
2. Flying does 0 damage.
3. I'll give you this one.
4. useful
5. useful except when material is made out of lead
6. useful
7. no comment.
8. can't pop people's head if they wear a kryptonite helmet
9. True unless Jedi has kryptonite lightsaber

So in conclusion, that kryptonite is a b*tch.

1. Kryptonite bullets? He'll dodge them.
1.5. Where are you going to find all that Kryptonite? Even if you did, he could just melt that thing from far away.
2. True, but it keeps him away from Kryptonite lightsabers.
8. He'll just throw a truck or something (with his blinding speed and power, it would be instantaneous).
9. See #8. A jedi wouldn't have time wave his hand or think really hard to counter it.
10. Jedi mind tricks don't work on superman. Even if it did, by the time a Jedi would wave his hand, he's dead.

1. In theory he could probably dodge it, but what if i scattered shot the bullets in every direction, then he would be unable to dodge them
1.5 I'm pretty sure superman is still vulnerable to LIQUID kryptonite plus I have never actually seen him melt kryptonite in any of the media he's in
2. Force Pull
8. In theory maybe, but I never seen him use super strength while using super speed in any of the Justice League animation (yes I saw Justice League and Justice League Unlimited)
9. See #8
10. Probably true since a jedi has to be close to superman to do it

Superman is an alien freak who's not even human. Jedi become one with the universe, as the Force flows through all things, and allows them to control all things as they have the ability to use and control the Force. A Jedi's powers are therefore limitless depending on the Jedi's connection and oneness with the Force.
As I'm sure you remember from the movies, the Jedi utilize the Force to enhance any and all skills (mental and physical) that are required of them. This includes their ability to know things that others can not know, as well as see things from the past and future - let alone mind reading possibilities, etc.

No, I'm calling you out as a Star Wars fan.

I'm not a fan of Superman or Star Wars, so I'm unbiased. And there is absolutely no way that a Jedi can beat Superman. Hitting superman with a lightsaber is like me hitting you with a wet noodle.

I have yet to see a reason how a Jedi can beat Superman.

Guys, the poll is asking which you would be - not which one would win in a fight. I think it's better to decide whether you can do a better job at fighting bad guys with jedi powers or superman powers and well superman's pretty screwed when bank robber brings out the kryptonite. At least with jedi, you can still use your powers.

A true Jedi Grand Master, I'm not talking about someone low on the totem pole of Jedi like a Jedi Knight - I'm talking Jedi Grand Master, could become so one with the Force that any power Superman has a Jedi could have even more so. Jedi, utilizing the Force could enhance any and all their abilities - both mental and physical - to any limit which is necessary. Superman may have great physical attributes, but a Jedi could match any of those, let alone his tremendous advantage over all mental aspects - to the extent of knowing what Superman would do even before he does it, negating any of his possible physical superiority.

I think you're overestimating the whole utilizing the Force. Jedi Grand Masters although have a much strong mental capacity, their physical attributes are still limited - they cannot bend time, grow extra limbs, or has frost breathe.

I think at this point, you're making stuff up. A Jedi Grand Master is the title given to the head of the council. Usually, it is the wisest of all the Jedi (like Yoda), so I'll give you that. But the title doesn't mean that he's stronger physically or uses the force better than any other Jedi.

I was making reference to a Jedi Grand Master b/c he would be more at one with the Force, being able to better utilize it to his needs. And the better a Jedi is able to utilize the Force, the more capable he would be able to achieve things that would normally seem impossible. We already see how Jedi can sense and perceive things from the past and future that they should not know, and get into the minds and thoughts of others. Plus we see the Jedi use the Force for great physical feats by moving fast, jumping incredible amounts, moving objects, etc.
Basically the more in tune with the Force a Jedi becomes, the greater his abilities in these areas. If a Jedi were to become completely one with the Force, he would have no limitations to his powers.
Not only that, Superman can die - and once he's dead he's over. While a Jedi, after his death he can continue on - Obi-Wan, "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

I'm just saying, a Jedi's power is only limited to his ability to use the Force - and the Force being that which flows through all things - means there is no extent to his possible power. Whereas Superman is limited.

Tough to leave out The Godfather when talking trilogies, though the third movie is generally considered a downgrade from parts one and two.
I consider Indiana Jones a trilogy too, b/c I never saw the fourth movie - but I've heard nothing but bad things about it.
I'd personally add in Back to the Future for one of my favorite trilogies. And also Bad News Bears - though I don't think it's that great in terms of quality, it's still one of my faves - even the sucky sequels: Breaking Training, and Go to Japan. I even like the TV show they made from the movies.

Superman actually does a good job at controlling his powers. I don't ever remember him accidentally killing anyone.

As a jedi, you do have to keep in mind that if you don't control your anger, you will become a Sith.

If you were going to base your decision on who's more powerful, then it wouldn't be getting off track. It's like choosing between a Ferrari and Porsche. Some would base their decision on styling....and some would base it on which was has the better lap time at Nuremberg.

But you're excluding other common factors that can play a role. I don't think Ferrari and the Porsche is a good comparison since the only metric that you can compare the two is acceleration, max speed, ease of use, etc... which don't vary much. Whereas Superman and Jedi would have to be compared with their strength and weakness not only against each other but against other enemy such as someone like Wolverine or Batman or a random bank robber. And depending on the enemy, the outcome will be different.

Anyways, I don't think a Jedi (assuming not a sith) will have any reason to fight Superman thus a more realistic scenario is if they had to tag team to fight against everyone else, who would most likely survive?
