**DAMIEN"S PICK OF THE WEEK**
Q will win because if you pronounce 'Q' backwards you get 'uek'. Q is a person, therefore an 'I', so if you subtract the numeral value of 'Q' from 'I' you get 'H'. Add 'H' to the 'uek' and you have 'Huek'. Now, because we added a consonant to the beginning of the word, we have to downgrade the second sound to the vowel below it, so change the 'u' to a 'o' making the word 'Hoek'. Hoek, as we all know, is the last name of one Ren Hoek, roommate and best friend of Stimpy T. Cat. Ren, as we know, is the most devious character we've ever encountered, and from this evidence, it is clear that Q is actually Ren Hoek in disquise. I think my case is clear. **JUSTICAR'S PICK OF THE WEEK**
Q? How can anyone vote for Q??? He's just some old guy who builds all those neat toys James Bond uses!
HAHA! YES! Revenge is mine against all those who said something similar in the fight I did between Q and MacGuyver! I have waited so long for this day and now I feel MUCH BETTER!
Now, on to this fight. I have to give it to Mr. Mxyzptlk. I'm sure people will go on about how each is capable of pretty much anything they want. My reasoning is slightly off kilter (as usual).
As it has been demonstrated before in the past, toons always win because their minds are capable of coming up with things no one else possibly could. Allow me to state an example...
Marvin the Martian VERSUS the MiB. Marvin won. Why? Because he's a toon. Is Mr. Mxyzptlk a toon? Well he originated in the comics but he's been on the cartoon too! I really love finding loopholes like that.
Anyway, I beleive even a prankster like Q will be hard pressed to overcome the "stuff" Mr. Mxyzptlk digs from that demented brain of his.

Ok, while it is true that Mxy has routinely given the man of steel a hard time, and Q got his kicks from bothering a bunch of space-faring mortals (and one nigh-invulnerable android...hmmm..the tick vs data...)I still had to go with Q on this one. While both have been punished by their respective high councils, Q has always seemed to come out on top, and succeed in cracking a few bald jokes on Picard.
When it comes down to the wire, I think Q's gonna beat Mxy like a red-headed stepchild, possibly one in K-mart.
Niffiwan the Relatively Impressive Within Proper Context writes:
This is a difficult one. Seeing as both beings are technically omnipotent, or at least claim to be such, I suppose the determining factor will be style.
In this Q decidedly possesses the advantage, as his wit is just about sharp enough to pierce the elusive lepton, whereas his opponent's cartoonish antics are honed to the point at which they're just about capable of making grade A applesauce.
Unlike Mxyzptlk, Q also benefits from the divine powers influx of a much higher budget than a single, semi competent animator, exploring the Crayola dimension.
If popularity is at all a factor here, Q's elevation to social godhood rivalling his more natural endowments to have a tad of an advantage over Mxyzptlk's 1000 point Jeopardy question obscurity.
Finally, let us consider the fact that the animated character to whom I will conclusively refer to as "The Mr.", for brevity's sake, may only effect any of his stupendous abilities when comically appropriate, whereas Q does just about anything he pleases, whenever he pleases, possibly several times.
The Chubby Bullfrog writes:
Let's try comparing these two, shall we?
Mxy comes from a dimension twice removed from ours. Voyager traveled to Q's home, so we'll assume that it's not in the 5th dimension.
Q is done by John DeLancy? I forget. But he's cooler than Gilbert Gottfried, who does Mxy in the cartoon.
Q's name is Q...and so is the name of every other being of his race. They're all called Q. That just sucks. Meanwhile, Mr. Mxyzptlk has a damned hard name to say. And you can say it backwards. Q backwards, is, uh, well, nothing, really.
Advantage: Mr. Mxyzpltk
Mxy spends his time obsessing over an inferior being from an inferior dimension, instead of staying at home with that 5th dimensional babe of a wife he's got. On the other hand, Q had to be taught how to love by Janeway.
Advantage: Neither. Each one loses 5 points.
Mxy: the Elmer Fudd thing doesn't work on anybody. Meanwhile, Q tries to make fun of his adversaries by wearing their uniforms, not realizing that they look kinda stupid. Speaking of which, what happened to the short skirts the women used to wear in the original?
Advantage: Q, by default.
Q lived in a Civil-War era house--at least, that's how he depicted it. Meanwhile, Mxy is stuck in the sixties (hey, that rhymed!)
Q led a rebellion to introduce sex to the Q. Mxy started off his career by turning Superman's parents into big dog-like creatures. Q still has a stupid name.
Advantage: Mxy, from the sixties.
Both have had their powers taken away from them by their people at one time or another.
Advantage: Walter Payton, the greatest running back ever to play the game.
So, I see this happening. Q sees Mxy and goes off on a ten minute tirade about how inferior Mxy is. Mxy interrupts him halfway by turning him into a cheesecake.
That about says it all, for me.
Borneo Jimmy writes:
There isn't much in the way of logic that can predict the outcome of a battle between two all-powerful beings. In this case, however, power is shaped by personality, and that gives Q the edge.
Myx is a holdover from the gee-whiz days of comic books. He would use his power to put Superman in a clown suit, or inside a bowling pin about to be hit by a giant ball; his taunts were on the order of "That's right, you Super-Dummy!" He's a little kid's vision of power (as are most DC characters). And his name-backwards weakness is just stupid.
Q really does play God. He tests humans; he toys with them; he is cruel. No scheme is too elaborate for him to construct if it will amuse him or will satisfy his taste for humiliating lesser beings --- lesser beings like Myx, who simply cannot think big.
Somehow, Q will arrange a cunning plan --- complex enough to fill an entire Star Trek episode --- that will lead up to the word Klypzlxym (or whatever). Myx will make his standard vow of revenge, and *poof*. Game over.
Mr. Silverback writes:
Gentlebeings, I have returned. I'm sure I didn't miss much...26 FREAKIN' MATCHES???? HOW THE HECK DID THAT HAPPEN?????
Ah...that's better. OK, show of hands; how many people here think that Q is too stupid to go find out about the name-in-reverse thing? Good, now how many think that Q is a mental midget compared to old Kal-El (admittedly no dummy) who has tricked Mixy back to his dimension umpteen hundred times? Yep, that's what I thought.
Q makes Mixy disappear faster than nuclear secrets at Los Alamos. It's what the people want.
I hope Khazan has my V.I.P seats all ready for me cause this is one match that I do not want to miss. These two have so much in common, and although I always thought Mxyzptlk would enter the Khazan arena fighting the Impossible Man, I still figured that we would soon see the little imp in action. However, to be quite honest, Mxyzptlk doesn't stand a chance. Q is a god in the Star Trek universe. He walks through time like an oridianry man walks through a field of corn. He can turn entire galaxies inside out with but a thought. And if you want to look at pranks, he has had the enterprise on trial for the crimes of humanity, nearly turned Riker into a Q like himself, introduced the federation to the Borg(for which I am ever in his debt), and has even pestered Janeway on occasion.
Mxyzptlk on the other hand can change himself and anything around him. He bothers Superman on occasion but Supes can always get rid of him by making him say his name backwards. Don't get me wrong here, that little imp is powerful. But Q can cross through time and space with the snap of a finger while Mxyzptlk needed the help of the Impossible Man just to trnasport Superman into another dimesnion. Besides, all you have to do to get rid of the little guy is just make him say his name backwards and when he does, bye-bye Mxyzptlk.
The Big Pink Rhino writes:
Oh come on, Q got outsmarted by COmmander Riker.
I believe that removes him from the list of "Cosmic Forces"
I thought that Star Trek: TNG was the best of the Star Trek Series (Followed closely by the original, IMHO)!
Q's talked to the Watcher! (In that rather lame Star Trek/X-Men novel)
However...I had to give this to Mxy *sob*
Why? Q seems to be limited to 4 dimensions. Mxy has no such limitations. Furthermore, Q is not a fighter...this is too much like the vampire fight, and Q is Lestat. A nice politician, but rarely gets his hands dirty.
Mxy goes toe to toe with cosmic powered beings, and isn't afraid to mix it up.
So...even though my heart screamed "Q"!...my brain gave the nod to 'Mixed Pickles' (The Superman/Silver Surfer crossover wasn't THAT bad!)
Q has this one in the bag. Mxyzplk is just a dork that can be easily fooled into defeating himself. Q is a ruthless well this is family website and I cant say it. Look at who it is who portrays these guys as well. Mxyzptlk=Gilbert Gottfried Q=John De Lancie who would you rather hang around. Mxyzpltk will be trashed faster than a movie theatre at a midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
"Oh very funny, Worf. Ate any good books , lately?"
"Now what are you babbling about, now?"
"Heh, I was just reviewing your Staaarrrrrr TRUCK episodes, and these things just make me sick."
"That's Trek, bulbhead. And besides, what do you expect from Picard's gay little troupe? They're not exactly the most...savvy people around."
"You got that right. Between the Mudhead, the PitDroid, and that twerp, Wesley, you had no challenge of wits at all. Talk about a bunch of bores!"
"Ahhhhh....but you forget Picard himself, the old grinch. Plus, Riker had a marvelous personality to fence with."
"Ptui. That still doesn't say how you gonna' defeat me Mr...what was your name again?"
"...None of this says how this will defeat anyone, Mxy. It just you have the voice of Gilbert Godfried...you have to be a loser. *SMILES*"
>Grumbles< "Had to bring that up, the overtall jerk....sniff...that was the under the belt"
Q vs. MXY...whatever. I had to vote for the "M" guy. Here's why:
First: Trekkies, Trekkers, etc. SUCK!!!!
Second: Q got beat by Picard, a mortal human with no powers other than the ability to straighten his shirt every single damn time he gets out of a chair. It took the mightiest man alive, the man who put "super" into "superhero", Superman to beat the "M" man.
The "Q" has no imagination, that is why "M" will beat him.
Q may have one small chance. If he can take control of "M" and force him to say his name backwards (if those rules apply here, which they might not) "M" is gone and match is over. If that rule doesn't apply, Q is going to be trapped forever as a guest at every freakin' TrekCon in the universe.
I truly feel sorry for him.
Eddie Filth writes:
anyone who has Gilber Godfreid as a their voice is a winner to me. So my vote goes for Myztxplx. Plus, I have fun out of upsetting Trekkies.
Is this supposed to be a fair fight? Q is clearly several millions times smarter than Mr. Mxyzptlk. Superman could defeat Mr. Mxyzptlk, do you think he could beat Q? This is either a conspiracy to pump up stats for Star Trek characters, or to pump up stats for characters named Q.
Bri Rob the Caveman writes:
To start things off, I'll state the obvious. Anything Star Trek HAS to lose. It's an absolute truth. Second, there's the Chick Factor(tm). Mxyzptlk has a pretty hot wife, or whatever she is. Then, there's the arch-nemesis factor. Who had Q lost to? Captain Kirk? BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!! At least Mxylost to Supes himself, a man that has total recall(tm). Q gets beaten like a pinata during Cinco de Mayo. "Was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor!?"..."Germans?" - Justy
Don King writes:
For all his power, what has Q ever done? He's turned the crew of the Enterprise into a mariachi band. He's done other things too, but nothing all THAT impressive considering how powerful he is.
On the other hand, Mr. Myxyzptlk is, pound for pound, the most annoying being in this or any other universe.
I mean, Jar-Jar Binks? Barney? Urkel? All lightweights compared to ol' Myxy.
Even Wesley Crusher, who did more harm to the Enterprise than Q ever did, is nothing next to the Imp from the 5th Dimension.
Assuming he doesn't use that weakness schtick (he wouldn't need to, that was always just to give Superman a fighting chance) then Q's gonna be in a straightjacket by the time this battles over.
And as long as in the Star Trek universe, maybe Myx can make Whoopi Goldberg implode, sort out that Tasha Yar foolishness, and take Will Riker and Deanna Troi aside and say, "Look kids, this sexual tension schtick is beyond old. Just get over it and $%$# already!"
Ya gotta hand this one to Q. I can see a long drawn out battle with a lot of special effects and universal mayhem (come to think of it, the citizens of the universe are porbably going to be the BIG losers of this battle), but in the end Q will prevail. Why? Easy, both maybe be omnipotent, both may have vast cosmic powers, but Q has the obvious intellect advantage. How do I come to this conclusion? Sure, he screws around a lot, but in the end anything he did was done to teach a lesson to humanity, therefore, a deep intelligence behind the seemingly loony actions. Myxy on the other hand is a certified fruit loop, who has been outsmarted time and time again, and it seems the only force actually driving him is to play stupid jokes on a universal scale. Q will more than likely draw the battle out until he becomes bored, then come up with some really complicated challenge for Mixy that will ultimately send the little runt running home with his tail between his legs.
When dealing with two omnipotent beings it comes down to inteligence and creativity. Mix isn't even quick enough to deal with Supes. When Q wants to torment his oponents, he does. When he wants to test his oponents, he does that effectively too. Mix never succeeds.

Q will KO Mr Myx
1) The little imp can be banished by being tricked into saying his name backwards and is consistently done so by superman (who is no mental giant). Q has no such limitation and is quite intelligient to boot.
2) Q ticks off people who can use technobabble to stop almost anything in 2 hours at most (like quantum subspace anomolies with phase variance). The most innovation myx's opponent has shown is lead suits (besides dylitium crystals are probably kryptonite). Q wins again.
Myx is used to people who can't really fight back. Q has put up other omnipitant beings. Q wins
The Animator writes:
I think Q will win. Let me explain why...No there is too much to explain, let me sum up.
1. Q humiliates Picard. Myx looses to Superman.
2. Everyone in the Q-Continuim is named Q. So while Myx thinks he's just fighting Q, he really fighting Q, Q, Q, Q, Q, Q, Q, and of coarse, Q.
3. Q is undefeated in both the CBUB and Grudge Match, where he has defeated MacGuver and Inspecter Gadjet.
4. Q has starred in the best ST:TNG shows ever...Encounter at Farpoint, All good Things, etc. Myx has appeared in a couple unimportant carttons.
5. Q is a much sharper dresser than Myx.
6. Q knows the Borg.
7. Mxy is a parrot...(Iago)
As you the old saying goes...N'uff Said!
Silent Watcher writes:
Mr. Mxy has a serious disadvantage on this fight. The High Council on the 5th dimention. These muckety mucks make sure that the big M always keeps to his word such as never ever bothering Superman again. Q however, answers to no such authority and thus can utilize powers that are restricted to Mxy. Hence the match goes to Q.
Q has this one in his hot little dimentional pocket. He's ruthless. He doesn't play with his food all the time, sometimes he flat out kills someone for breaking his rules and ruining his fun. Also recall that this particular Q was thrown out of the Continum for being too mean to the mortals. Someone get a stopwatch, this ones gonna be quick.
Okay, M's got it going on. I mean, the guy almost beat Superman, and that takes a lot. Plus, Q tries all of these stupid ways to get at the crew of the Enterprise. There's no way that Q could beat M.
Q has this one in the bag, and for so many reasons.
For one thing, Q leaves when he feels like it. Mxy leaves when Superman wins a mind game with him. Point one: Q.
For another, Q's stunts are much more elaborate and show a deeper level of intelligence than Mxy's cartoonish slapstick. Point two: Q.
For another, Q has shown degrees of pure menace, whereas Mxy is often little more than an annoyance. True, Mxy can be a real threat, but more often than not he isn't. Q puts all of humanity on trial. Myx just wants to bother Superman. Point three: Q.
Look at the way these two dress. Point four: Q.
Then there's the pure class angle. Q has always been played by John DeLancie, who is able to give his demi-god comic aplomb and an edge that sometimes reminds us he's dangerous. Myx has been plyed by the voice of Gilbert Godfried on the Superman Animated Series, and by Michael J. Polard in the long gone (but best forgotten) Superboy Live Action syndicated Series. Point five: Q.
And how many beings can make Worf exclaim in frustration, "I must protest! I am NOT a Merry Man!". Point six: Q.
And finally, though Mxy's character has a longer history, at no point in Q's life did he ever look like Elmer Fudd, as Mxy did back in the 40s. Point seven: Q. Game, set, and match.
Charge Man writes:
Remember the old Superfriends episodes from the seventies? Superman pronounces Mr. Mxyzptlk's name "Mix-el-plek". Why? It was the seventies.
As for Q, you never see anyone in Star Trek mispronounce his name. Mxy takes all.
(and Justy? That's "Little Big Head Man". Had to clear that up.)
Charge Man, you're taking Bizzaro's grasp of the English language over mine? tsk...tsk... - Justy.

This is an excellent Idea! But after

drive Q insane or breakdown Q's ego by actually showing Q that there is some more powerful (or at least as powerful)
as him! But, Q could trick Mxy into saying," ktlpyxM!" and POOF! There goes baldy back to the 5th dimension! Which by the way What the hell is this 5th dinmesion crud anyway?

Darth Eddie writes:
Yeah. A billion years ago. Which is about when I FIRST SUGGESTED THIS MATCH!!!!!!! AT LONG LAST!!!!!
Q has this in the bag. Who cares that Q is easier to spell than Mxyzptlk? Getting Q to say his name backward (which, BTW, just happens to be Q) doesn't do squat to him. And why bother tricking Mxy into saying his name backward? Q can just snap his fingers and poof Mxy all the way to Hell if he so chooses. And as much a Superman fan as I am, Big Blue can't do diddly to bail Mxy's butt out of this one (not that Big Blue would want to in the first place). But aside from red suns and Kryptonite, magic puts Superman out of commission, as well. Q would have a field day (or perhaps a field millennium, if he so chooses) with the Man of Steel. In fact, he'd probably turn Superman into Data -- get it? Man of Steel? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
While I would never call Q omnipotent (only God is omnipotent -- and Q had his powers taken away at one point), Q would lay the all-powerful smackdown on the little imp. Mxy's about to be introduced to a sixth dimension -- about six feet under, to be exact.
With both of these guys being super powerful, it is nonsense to think you can judge the match by comparing infinite power to infinite power. You have to look at one all important fact. All Q has to do to win is get Myx to say his name backwards. Superman gets him to do this like he was making tea, it will be childs play for Q to do it. Q has an IQ of how many odd thousands? If Superman can trick Myx, Q could sell him encyclopedias.
The way I see it, they entertain each other for a while, Q gets bored and sends him on his way.
End of story.
Ok folks...Q couldnt get Janeway into the sack...how can he beat a midget in a bowler!
Lets ignore the Trek Geeks that live in their own filth in their Moms basment
He's gotta win! Cause I wanna see Callisto Say his name!!!!
In what may be the most damaging battle EVER fought in Khazan, Q will walk away with the fight within mere moments of turning Mxy into a striped turnip. Heck, turnip is MUCH easier to spell anyway. It's about time SOMEONE from Trek won a fight outside of their own universe anyway.
