So, y'all just gonna ignore this dude just brought up the gravity of the planet?

Gravity was wonky in some areas because of The Convergence.  The area Thor and Kurse fought in wasn't one of those areas though.

Yeah, that part occurred later in the movie.

Nobody with a brain is saying that. Just Gree, furious about the Shadowcat vs Midnighter verdict!

I chuckled.

Cap wins 2/10 due to rare pressure point hitting above his weight class and/or exploiting the environment.

Class 50 for Thor sounds about right for strength. But like Luke Cage, he seems to have a higher level of durability.

And sure, Cap can punch outside his weight class. But not consistently. And especially not consistently for class 50 and up. His shield strikes will be his best bet, but if Thor gets a nice baseball swing on a shield toss, the shield is getting launched, leaving Cap without that added striking bonus.

And movie Thor isn't shy about using lightning.

True.

But I wouldn't say he's much more durable just because of the one city explosion feat. A drop from like 50,000 feet was said to kill him as well.

And Cap is exponentially more skilled than anything Thor has ever faced, more agile and experienced. The skill gap from comic to film is insane. He will be outclassed, imo.

First it was said to "possibly" kill him. It wasn't a guarantee. Second, we saw him actually hit the ground and he was fine.

SHIELD thought the container could be used to trap and kill Hulk if Banner was imprisoned there and got angry. As we saw from Avengers, a 50,000 foot fall did not kill Hulk.

Thor got imprisoned in the cage, and Loki says something like "the humans think us immortal... shall we put that to the test?"

Thor clearly thought landing INSIDE the container could be a problem; hence, he escaped. He still landed and smashed into the ground from the fall.

The way he compares to Iron Man, Loki, and others is how I get to the class 50 approximation.

BTW, do you think his lightning burst that killed three Leviathan was class 50? Or his hammer/lightning slam that seemed to destroy about a half mile of Jotenhiem (sp)? I think those showings are a bit higher.

Barry seems content to pine over any Iris he can find. I remember on Earth-2 he abandoned his mission in season 2 to just spend the day with Earth-2 Iris while her real husband was KOed... which later led to Earth-2 Joe getting killed.

Barry seemed to be in love with Flashpoint Iris IIRC. And he's just as in love with this post-Flashpoint Iris who he never actuallly shared a life with. Close, but not the same woman. Other people have pointed this out to Barry in the past, but the writers seem to enjoy having Barry act this way.

That was another problem for season 3. I spent two seasons investing in Team Flash. Then Barry erased them all from the timeline, did another reboot to try and get them back, but nope... all the relationships and histories were different... yet somewhat the same. Which is frustrating.

I mean, if you're going to take such a major change, really explore it. Harry doesn't know these fucking people. Their Barry is gone, and his team Flash are gone. This is not the same Iris he loved or the same Joe that raised him. Dive into that shit. Instead, we just get some whining about how Barry's time travel ruined people's lives because completely unexpected consequences arose from Barry trying to stop his mom from being murdered.

I felt the end could've been stronger, but overall, a really good story.

15%!? Holy shit WTF!? 25% would be significant.

And all the while, increasing the bloated military budget and building the mega wall.

Ah, the killer.  I never got that impression but it makes sense.

Yeah, it was ambiguous. In their fight where David just tries to choke him out, he seemed like a pretty strong guy, but nothing crazy. The speech is what made me question the possibility. Also the fact that David beat the killer using David's only weakness: suffocation.

I got the impression they were saying he was the powerless mastermind type.

I meant the Killer guy who took the family hostage. The speech mentions a villain who can physically match the hero, but that the real threat is the mastermind (which is who Glass turns out to be).

Yeah I don't get that at all. Flash has been going downhill since that Zoom reveal.

Yep. Season 2 started off promising and then became an absolute clusterfuck of no -sense by the end. Individual episodes were still entertaining generally, but the overarching storyline was very poorly thought out and really had no tension at the end.

And season 3, for me, just kept losing that sense of tension/urgency. I love a positive hero with humor, but soon it became too much fluff with not enough substance. These characters never seem to learn or grow beyond some superficial changes. I guess Caitlyn is changing, but it's basically, "My powers make me evil. Why? Just because."

I think they just need a fresh set of writers. The current group just feels spent. They have some decent inidividual episode ideas, but their season spanning stories are repetitive, inconsistent, and a bit dull. They seemingly blew their wad in season 1.
