    Mandarin - Because old school racial stereotypes never die, they just bide their time until they're awesome again.

    Loki - He's the god of trickiness going up against the trickiest man in existence. Sure, Luthor brings a good game, but he's going up against the personification of his MO here.

    Brainiac: Kills Mandarin, then for good measure destroys the planet and preserves a city in a bottle. That is how he rolls.

    Loki: I really, really wanted to give this to Lex, but the presence of a whole planet of Bizarro's gives a trickster like Loki too much material to work with.

    Mandarin - Changes Brainiac into a tree with the matter rearranger and then blasts him apart with another ring.

    Loki - Luthor would win in a straight up fight, but Loki will never fight like that and so he wins.

    Mandarin - Much stronger than even the comics have ever given him credit for. Can rip Brainiac to shreds with the power of just one ring.

    Loki - It's the god of trickery versus a lame ass human.

    Mandarin: The Marvel version of Fu Manchu can pull out all stops and destroy the Brainiac threat.

    Luthor: I really flipped a coin on this one, but I really think Lex can keep up with Loki's intelligence easily and might be able to pull out the win.

    Mandarin - sorry Brainiac, Fu Manchu is just a walking arsenal of nastiness.

    Loki - Trickster god, versus a genius human, regardless of whatever tech is being used...gotta give this one up to the contestant with greater experience in creative shenanigans.

    Mandarin - Uses his matter re-arranger ring to turn Brainiac into a hilarious racial stereotype...then blasts the crap out of him.

    Loki - Ok, I can't see Loki EVER losing a match on a populated battlefield, as long as the population in question is able to stand up to his opponent in a fight.

    Mandarin - Brainiac is analagous to Iron Man, Mandarin is used to Iron Man.
    Loki - Populated planet. Yeah, populated planets give Loki the edge, especially when 99% of them are superhuman.

    Brainiac - Too fast and durable. Mandarin wouldn't be able to disable Brainiac before getting splattered.

    Loki - God of trickery? Planet full of superhumans who use childish backwards logic? Lex may have had a chance if he knew where to aim that crazy battlesuit, but that'll never happen when fighting loki.

    Fight 17: Mandarin (As Munkus says, Braniac is close enough to Iron Man. If Mandarin is a contender against Iron Man, he's a contender against Brainiac.)

    Fight 18: Luthor (Loki is smart and dangerous, but too playful, especially on a world that will amuse him. Luthor will just hurry up and start shooting.)

    17. Brainiac - Mandarin loses to Iron Man. Brainiac is made out of more advanced metals, is faster and stronger. Not to mention a whole lot smarter. Plus the enviroment on Oa is hard for any organic being to withstand, even the Guardians need to put up shields to survive out there.

    18. Loki - As long as he fights on a populated battlefield it is likely he will win. Especially if the populace is capable of fighting his opponent with him.

    Mandarin - With the Stark to Braniac comparisons, I'm taking into consideration that Ironman didn't get it right the first time. Braniac under estimates FTL

    Loki - No contest. Lex's intelligence would make Loki's tricks even more entertaining.
