This one is a true doppelganger fight! Magnus, Robot Figher (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnus,_Robot_Fighter) knows super-karate. The Karate Kid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karate_Kid_%28comics%29) knows super karate. Both can shatter titanium blocks with a quick karate chop. Both also live in the future! Magnus Robot Fighter came first and deserves some credit for this. Magnus Robot Fighter also has one of the most interesting super hero outfits around. Matching magenta top and shorts with white boots! More the sort of outfit you would expect on a go-go dancer rather than a male super hero. Karate Kid had two outfits and both were pretty bad. The first one was a dark tan Karate outfit made out of spandex complete with the black belt that was actually brown, I guess to match the rest of the outfit. The second was some sort of black and white kung fu inspired martial arts outfit. There was kung fu craze going on at the time. Karate Kid also knows every martial art of the 30 th century not just on Earth but across the galaxy. Karate Kid is a member of the Legion of Superheroes and in this universe there is a United Planets. Magnus lives in a much more insular future were interstellar contact is generally a prelude to alien invasion. The Karate Kid even learned a martial art specially designed to fight aliens like Super Boy. So the Karate Kid has the edge in knowledge of martial arts.
However, Magnus has been fighting robots. Big robots! Gigantic robots! Deadly robots! Magnus has the edge in combat experience and beats the Karate Kid. Anyway Magnus has the courage to wear white boots and deserves to win.
