Amid the Comics Crash of 1996, DC Versus Marvel: The Showdown of the Century! hit comic book shops. Pitting DC and Marvel characters against each other in one-on-one fights, the crossover promised decisive battles between the two companies' superheroes. Two celestial brothers in parallel universes stage a contest of champions, drafting their greatest warriors to fight for supremacy in one-on-one matches. As far as the combatants know, they're fighting for the very continuing existence of their universes.
Fans' votes determined the outcomes, which is the only reason why Wolverine beats Lobo. But there are even worse pairings and outcomes.
For instance, Robin, a Batman wannabe with the power of super-impressive acrobatics, takes down Jubilee, a fireworks-blasting mutant vampire, but not before they fall in love. Spider-Man beats Superboy. Granted, it's a clone fight between '90s Spider-Man, a clone of Peter Parker, and '90s Superboy, a clone of Kal-El A.K.A. Superman. A flying godlike being with an equally godlike mullet loses to the wisecracking webslinger?
Wonder Woman, Diana the freakin' Amazon, regular partner of Superman, loses to Storm, an intermittently claustrophobic weather-manipulator with royal blood. During the battle, Wonder Woman lifts and wields Thor's hammer, something neither Storm nor any other human can do. She then discards the hammer and opts for a fair fight, which she promptly loses when she's struck by lightning. Admittedly, there's something satisfying about seeing one of the few black X-Men bring down a character whose creator considered her white skin part of her superpowers. If there's a silver lining, that's it.
