Marvel Zombies / Re: Anyone else looking forward to Million BC Avengers?

So did anything happen with this?  They were teased in the beginning few pages of Legacy and I don’t know where the story continued.

Lazy illustrator trying to force an art edit after the fact, rather than redraw. 

Seems pretty straightforward?

I thought it was noteworthy because it's new and different from past presentations on how they work. 

This is from 3 days ago, but I just came across it.  Looks like they're redefining how the stones work in the comics.  Also, it's hard to break the habit of automatically typing "gems" instead of "stones."

Separately, they’re all-powerful. Together, their power is limitless. To help you prepare for the biggest Infinity epic yet, Marvel is excited to present INFINITY CIRCUIT: the guide that will make YOU the master of the Infinity Stones, just in time for INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1!

Serving as a handy guide designed to show which stones our mighty Marvel heroes currently hold at the start of INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1, the INFINITY CIRCUIT also provides a description of their specific power, detailing how they can be used to rule the universe. Mini-posters will be available in comic shops along with the release of INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1 on March 7th, but fans can download the INFINITY CIRCUIT right now, and get started mapping out the power! (Retailers can find a file on the Diamond retailer page.)

Buffy was definitely stronger than Max.  Max seemed to be enhanced speed-wise to a greater degree than Buffy, and have more visible skill.  That's kind of the slayer/vampire dynamic in general, though, and Buffy always comes out on top there.

Raw power, as in we are not looking for who would beat who?  I'll do both just in case.

Raw power:

Jane FosThor
Grey She-Hulk
Captain Marvel


Jane FosThor
Grey She-Hulk
Captain Marvel

I don't remember enough about Kismet to say.  Captain Marvel is frustrating, because they tend to write her like they always have but she has moments where she hits way out of what was classically seen as her class.  She's definitely supposed to be more powerful now, but the lousy oversight at Marvel means you'll see this followed pretty haphazardly.  That's not even getting into her pseudo-Binary form she sometimes transforms into.

I'm (pleasantly) surprised she did this.  I saw an interview with her once where she seemed to regret doing the first one.

Is that a full power Juggernaut fighting Hyperion?  His durability looks like shit, but Juggernaut is perpetually in some depowered state or another so maybe it's not as bad as it looks?

It was established early on that Juggs wasn't at full power during that run (it was suggested that he pissed off Cytorrak when he briefly wielded the Captain Universe power in a prior story). And due to his diminished state, the authorities were able to implant nanites in his head that Cage could use to keep him in line if he misbehaved.

Thanks, I figured as much but appreciate the confirmation.  Great fight, overall.

On an unrelated note, I agree with Gree that links or thumbnails would be better than posting the full pages directly. I think the best way to post a whole fight these days is to upload all the pages into a single gallery at Imgur, and then post a link to it. That way, people don't have to click on separate links/thumbs for each page, or scroll past full pages of fights they're not interested in.

Cool thread anyway.

The mods made a new rule recently (unless this is an in-joke which is always possible here) where they seem to want it the way the OP is posting the images.

That said, your preferred method of a gallery on Imgur seems to be allowed, and sounds like the best method to me as well.

I'm already getting slowly burnt out on Star Wars and considering I have little faith Episode 9 will be any good, I don't know if I can muster the excitement for any more.

It's going to happen eventually, they want at least 1 SW movie a year in perpetuity.  Eventually it's going to cross the threshold where it's not special or noteworthy anymore, some maybe think it's already there. 

To be completely honest, however, while I have no doubt that the time is coming where I won't care much anymore, I'll probably always see a new Star Wars movie in the theater.   

ICT / Re: The Forever People vs The League of Realms

DC's incredibly unhelpful wiki says that the Forever People are humans taken from different time periods by Highfather, did he enhance their physiology or are they using New God tech for their powers?  I started to cross-read the wiki's and got bored, sorry, seemed like they listed Serifan as having New God physiology but the bio didn't account for that just saying he's a human with cosmic cartridges that function like trick arrows in bullet form.

Even though I've read them, I didn't remember much about the League of Realms either (!Where am I?) and looked up Honeyshot.  Marvel wiki has the following listed under powers and abilities: "Honeyshot was a marksman."  Thanks wiki.

Not sure why I'm posting this since I don't know or remember anything relelvant, but I like "out there" threads so yeah.  I guess I'll go with Forever People, because trick bullets.

Was Dark Phoenix Jean all that impressive?  The star devouring is a good point I did not really think of, but in terms of her combat ability I seem to remember her being like a ruthless elite, able to beat the top tier but it's still a fight.  Incorrect?

Of course, this is kind of contrary to things like Rachel Phoenix fighting Galactus to a stalemate, and even moreso the Phoenix 5 who seemed unstoppable with only a fraction of the PF.  Taking subsequent continuity into account Dark Phoenix would win, but (at least in my probably shoddy memory) the original comics didn't have her so godly.

Marvel continuing to do well, Thor 3 also had %100 for a while.   I can't remember offhand what happened with the movie before Thor, but in general they seem to be doing extremely well critically, which is often not the case with big money blockbusters.

Disney’s Bob Iger says ‘a few’ Star Wars TV series are in the works for their streaming service
“We are developing not just one, but a few Star Wars series specifically for the Disney direct to consumer app. We’ve mentioned that and we are close to being able to reveal at least one of the interties that is developing that for us. Because the deal isn’t completely closed, we can’t be specific about that. I think you’ll find the level of talent … on the television front will be rather significant as well.”


Me trying to digest all the upcoming Star Wars content...

I wonder if this is in addition to what we already know, or just a restatement that the press jumped on.  It's been official for a while now that the following projects are going to be made

-live action show
-Cartoon show replacing Rebels when it ends in March.
- Young girl oriented cartoon based on the animated short episodes they're currently producing under the "Forces of Destiny" label.

That's multiple TV shows already, I question how many they're really going to have running at once. 

ICT / Re: Sentry VS Mangog
« on: February 06, 2018, 07:30:55 PM »
I think classically, it's Sentry's fight to lose.  Mangog is typically physically unstoppable but firmly below Odin in overall power.  Sentry won't be punching him out, but his high-end cosmic stuff could do the trick. 

As to percentage, I think it's a coin toss because Sentry isn't often written to be unstoppable but when he is it often comes from the big threat situations, whereas something like a fight with Hercules can fail to trigger Sentry's godmode and lead to lower power output.  I think Mangog would cause Sentry to go all-out, personally.

Current Mangog destroys Sentry

I'm inclined to agree, current Mangog is something else.  As things stand now, Mangog was resurrected as the so-called "Ultimate Judgment of the Gods" by the Parliament of Pantheons in Omnipotence City (think Skyfather council but it's an organization that spans all the gods in the universe rather than just Earth). 

This seems to have strengthened Mangog immensely as he proceeds to one-up past events issue by issue.  Where once he punched Mjolnir out of the air when thrown at him, now he straight crumbles the hammer of the Ultimate Thor.  Where Thor once defeated him by sticking his arm down Mangog's throat and blasting him, now he laughs at the same attack and sends it back at Thor.  He eats the Destroyer, cracking the indestructible armor.  Most tellingly, Odin can't do shit to this Mangog despite being comfortably above Mangog in the past.
