Supernatural's Winchester brothers vs. The Scooby Gang and Angel Investigations. Which Whedon gang does TWoP think beats the Winchesters?

While the Scoobies have the numbers, Sam's Web research skills rival Giles' fancy magic-book learning, and Dean gets done with some salt and a shotgun what Willow needs six herbs and a chant circle to accomplish.

So while Dean and Sam are about as effective as Angel -- maybe even more so, in broad daylight -- Angel's network of agents and informants make him every demon's worst nightmare.

The Losties? Really? Is that the nickname for Jack and co?
"While the Scoobies have the numbers, Sam's Web research skills rival Giles' fancy magic-book learning, and Dean gets done with some salt and a shotgun what Willow needs six herbs and a chant circle to accomplish."

First of all, I'd like to see Willow the hacker vs Sam and Dean vs Willow season 5.

I know who'd win.
pfft, Buffy would kick both their asses :p
Dean gets done with some salt and a shotgun what Willow needs six herbs and a chant circle to accomplish.

Wesley's shotgun is bigger than Dean's shotgun :P
Yeah I don't think they got that right at all. I don't mind 'Supernatural' but Buffy alone could beat the boys, let alone Willow. She's way past urbs and chant! And Giles doesn’t just research, he knows things off the top of his head. Giles > Sam.

I agree about Team Angel though, except for Cordy apparently knowing more than Sam about folklore and demons ect. Ah.. ok, since when?
No way, the Scoobies would win, big time!!
I bet I'll be really annoyed if I click on the link to read the article. It annoys me that people tend to undermine the Scoobies so much, even when they were only doing the work as a part-time thing, when they were younger.

Besides, power hungry Willow from the end of Season 6, would eat demon-blood Sam for breakfast.
...and have Ruby for dessert...
These things are always stupid. You can't make people from entirely different verses fight each other. They have totally different sets of rules.
Just...no.

If the Charmed Ones beat the Winchesters then Willow with her much more varied power would wipe the freaking floor with them, with or without Buffy. The list seems rather skewed towards the Winchesters, especially with the Ghost Whisperer/Medium stuff.

Also, they beat Superman? In what bizzaro world?
Agreed nonbeliever93. Batman did beat Superman, and I'm sure Scoobies could do it too if necessary. But the Winchesters? No way.
Superman is vulnerable to magic, always has been. So it depends on the circumstances but the Scoobs entire could beat Big Blue (and maybe Willow on her own - anyone without magic abilities wouldn't have much chance though).

Never seen 'Supernatural' so can't comment on that.
I love the boys dearly, but no way are they beating the Scoobies. And honestly, if you look at the issues the Winchesters have versus the one the Scoobies have, there's no contest. While Sam and Dean were arguing over their dad and God knows what else, Buffy and Co. would have throttled the two of them and headed off for the Bronze. ;)
Cordy apparently knowing more than Sam about folklore and demons ect. Ah.. ok, since when?

Maybe Sam just doesn't know the url for the Demons Demons Demons website ;)
LOL! @ ShanshuBugaboo and Rowan Hawthorn.
I think most of the stuff they post on TWoP is crap. Here's just another fine example. "Supernatural" is a really good show, and "The Boys" are certainly easy on the eyes. But better than the Scoobies? Puhleeze. Sam's tech skills may rival Willow's, but she has the added advantage of being one of the most powerful witches is the Western Hemisphere. And Giles's knowledge & wisdom always trumps Sam's online research abilities. And, oh yeah, Buffy could whip both those pretty boys' asses without breaking a sweat.
I'm not surprised people are underestimating the Winchesters here, considering this is Whedonesque and not Winchesteresque.

Sam has tech skills, demon skills, and the ability to research musty old books just like Giles, not to mention his demon woman friend and the fact that he can also kick a lot of physical ass. Dean has superb marksmanship and a +20 to all Supernatural Lore rolls because, come on, they've been doing this since they were tots. He also has special demon AND angel knowledge, and who knows what favors he can pull from lesser gods. Current season Sam and Dean would put up a very good fight, but in the end I think they'd be smart enough to know they shouldn't even be fighting the Scoobies since they're on the same side. And they'd all go to the Bronze and get plastered -- after wasting whatever bad vampires they come across. (The cow-sucking vamps can stick around, especially since one of them would look eerily familiar to Willow...)
Have to agree with Pretty_Hate_Machine that these kinds of things are generally without sense. And as much as I enjoy Supernatural, I think TWoP is just . . . well, anyway, I'll just say that this vs. thing seems wildly skewed to "the boys."

Maybe Sam just doesn't know the url for the Demons Demons Demons website ;)


LOL! My thoughts exactly ruuger.
Also, they beat Superman? In what bizzaro world?

Not in a head-to-head match, but in problem solving. The "Smallville" writers tend to make the protagonists a bunch of doofuses (doofi?).
I'm just gonna do an "I agree with what LiLi said."
I'm not even gonna try to get to the bottom of this one. Because as much as I love and adore the Scooby gang and Angel's team, I also very much love the Winchesters and yeah, just a bad idea. XD

*Goes to watch some SPN because that's all she brought on this little trip*
I as well agree with LiLi. However, I also find it funny that no one has pointed out how there are just the 2 boys vs the scooby gang. How is that in anyway fair to start with? So to keep things fair why not a, who would win if Buffy had to fight everyone in the Supernatural verse.
I think everybody's missing the point here. It's not about who would win in a fight. Because, duh, Buffy would wipe the floor with the Winchesters, and if you add in Willow from the later seasons of the show... dude, it's no contest. Scoobies all the way.

But that's not what this article's about. It's about who would be the first to solve a supernatural-related mystery. And in that area, I've gotta side with the boys. They've been investigating mysteries since they were kids. They know how to cheat the system to get info (pose as cops/feds/etc.), they have tons of knowledge about the supernatural world, they have/had a network of people to help them (Bobby, Ruby, Pamela, the angels, etc.) and figuring out whodunnit (or in this case, would it be whatdunnit?) and stopping them is their raison d'ętre. They clearly have the edge.
