I'll wait till the write up is in on this one, but am strongly leaning toward Luke and Danny.

Booster Gold is under rated, power wise that is.

Okay, colosseum probably means thagt Beetle doesn't have his ship.

Beetle is a highly skilled acrobat and fighter. He may be a better acrobat than Iron Fist but is not in the same league as a martial artist. His gun may equalize things a bit. The air blast would be hard to avoid and the flash could temporarily blind him. I don't think this is enough, though. Iron Fist is so skilled that he can fight blind, relying on his other senses, and still be very effective. He once beat Sabretooth while snow-blind. With this, plus the power of the Iron Fist, I think he takes down Beetle after a good fight.

Booster and Cage are both in the 20 ton + strength range and I can't find enough data to say which is stronger. Booster's suit gives him protection similar to what Luke's used to be (bullets hurt but don't penetrate) but Luke's has been enhanced greatly when his strength was boosted to its current level. He is much more durable than Booster. Booster has the edge in maneuverability (because of his Legion flight ring) and weapons because of his gauntlet blasters, so they're on a fairly even footing power-wise, so it comes down to personality. Booster is brave, but not very serious, whereas Cage is all business when it comes to fighting. After a tough fight, Cage wins this.

Booster's shields did take a hit from Doomsday, though he broke through after. Dunno how he compares to Cage though strength wise.

I thought he was capable of slugging it out with Kryptonians after amping his suit up?

@ Nova - You're right about the shield. Cage couldn't break through that.

@ Panzer - I dunno.

Well if he can't hurt Booster, he can't really win, could he?

Can Booster leave his shields up constantly?

Can Booster fire through his shields?

My impression is that they're something he throws up for big attacks as opposed to something that's always on.

I believe they are akin to Superman's bio-field that protects him yet still allows him to attack.

So that's a tentative yes. Possibly wrong though.

The thing that makes me wonder is that in the DC listing they mention the force field as separate from the protection his uniform gives him. The force field is generated by the uniform so I don't understand why there would be two entries if it's always on.

I would imagine it could be that he constantly has a shield but can strengthen areas for major impacts

This is an assumption. Have to look up more info later

The DC database entry says the suit amplifies Booster up to the 20 ton level, though it can go higher for brief periods if needed.

Cage was originally at the 3 ton level but was boosted. I can't find anything official but estimates seem to range from 25-60 tons.

My best guess, he's stronger than Booster but not by a huge margin.

According to Comic Vine, Booster's force field is an old force field belt of Brainiac 5's. If this works the way it did in LoSH, he can't attack when he has it on, but it will resist Superman level attacks. It's a great thing to protect yourself and others from overwhelming attacks with.

Tactically, he can use the thing to keep Luke from beating him (and I doubt even the Iron Fist can get through it) but it's not going to help him beat Cage either.

The more I research, the more I think this is a pretty even match.

Interesting match...If this is classic version of team two than team one takes this. If not than team two wins.

Personally I think Blue Beetle is the weak link. He just doesnt have what it takes to fight with either on team two
