ICT / Immortal Hulk vs Thanos
« on: April 08, 2018, 03:02:43 PM »
Is it just me or have we reached the point now where the Hulk is odds on favourite to take down Thanos in a scrap, factoring in how he treated three of the strongest Avengers like toys recently and how Thanos himself looked a damn sight less impressive against Carol and co? I reckon ol’ Jade Jaws would’ve bulldozed that crew in his current form.

DC Drones / Insane feat for Pre-Crisis Wonder Woman
« on: March 11, 2018, 09:36:48 AM »
Like Superman, Wonder Woman had her fair share of crazy showings back in the 40s-60s ... more innocent times when the sky was the limit with these characters. However, I always thought that WW settled down a bit as she moved towards Crisis of Infinite Earths. If you read her own comic, she does very little crazy shit from the 70s onwards ... most of her strength showings are things like lifting cars and probably the best was catching an 18 wheeler with her lasso.

I've been reading some old JLA comics from the 70s and 80s though and Diana has a run of impressive feats. During this stint, she gives Superman a pretty hard time in a fight. She also throws giant squid through the air like they're guinea pigs and pulls down an apartment block with her lasso. She holds up a crumbling building while it's evacuated; when I was a kid, I thought WW was Spider-Man level based on the TV show, until I saw this particular feat. More impressively, she drags an immense iceberg out of the way of an oil tanker and in the same issue, holds glaciers together so that they don't become icebergs.

The king of all feats, though, comes in JLA #174; a baddie called The Regulator has increased the size of a horde of vermin and put them under his control. A very conservative estimate of the number of rats under his control is several hundred but it's more likely there are 1000s. The rats are each at least the size of a large dog, about 100lbs or so but could possibly be up the size of a lion or tiger (400lbs+). Once Regulator's defeated, WW uses a concrete caisson (conservative estimate: 2 tons?) to capture the rats and once Zatanna's sealed it, she uses her lariat to throw it ... 'into the outer reaches of the solar system'.

So basically Wonder Woman hurls, what, 15-20 tons (conservative estimate) to the far reaches of the solar system with no effort. If the rats numbered in the 1000s and each weighed 1/4 ton, Christ knows how much she threw ... maybe as much as 50-75 tons?

That is an insane feat of strength. Would that be her best ever feat after the unquantifiable lifting the Spectre and towing a star? Personally, I think it beats the Moon towing she did with Superman and Martian Manhunter.

As one blogger pointed out, it's also a pretty callous way of solving the problem, just killing all of these beasts without a second thought. Couldn't Zatanna have turned them to their normal size again?

In which continuity were the two closest in strength:

a. Pre-Crisis Earth 1
b. Post-Crisis (New Earth)
c. New 52 (Prime Earth)?

Pre-Crisis WW could give Supes a decent scrap for a short time and he called her strength 'amazing'. When the Man of Steel wasn't around, she usually acted as the muscles on the JLA. With that said, most indications are that Pre-Crisis Supergirl was stronger than WW overall - she fought Supergirl to a standstill once but Superman himself said more than once that Supergirl was Earth's strongest hero besides himself. Diana also looked a fair bit off Superman's level against Mongul.

Post-Crisis WW was said many times to be close to Superman's level or in his league but again didn't fare tremendously well against Supes-calibre foes. Post-Crisis Supergirl said on separate occasions that WW and PG were stronger than she was and Gail Simone wrote WW and PG as equals.

I've heard Supes and WW are much closer in strength nowadays. WW beat Mongul and closed a rift that Mongul and Non collectively were struggling with.

Please could the usual suspects refrain from boring everyone else about Superman's dynamic power levels. If you believe Supes is 100 times as strong as Wonder Woman, just be honest, come out and say it.

ICT / Iron Fist vs Moondragon vs Captain America, nods to scourge

How would you rank them in a) pure athleticism and b) skill?

Moondragon beat the tar out of Cap but it was stated that Cap missing the SSS helped at the very least ... the outcome might have been different otherwise. Could Danny have done as well against Cap under the same circumstances? If so, surely that indicates that Steve’s enhanced physical attributes are what allows him to hang with Danny and his skill isn’t equal to Danny’s?

How about Moony vs Cap? No doubt Cap with the SSS is more than her match but without it, was Heather stronger and faster than him or is she simply that much more skilled? In the former case, that says something big about Moondragon’s physical prowess given Cap without the SSS can do barbell curls with 500lbs for reps.

From what I recall, the Post Crisis Shaggy Man wasn’t quite as strong as Superman, unlike his Pre Crisus counterpart, but was still virtually impossible to keep down. How would the Dog of War fare against him?

ICT / J’onn J’onnzzzzz vs Harras Sersi
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:30:40 AM »
Apart from reliable old Thor, many Avengers writers have a favourite on the team who they push to the moon during their stint. For Englehart, it was Wonder Man, for Roger Stern, it was Captain Marvel. Sersi was Bob Harras’ teacher’s pet while he wrote ‘Avengers’. On a team with powerhouses like Hercules and Crystal, Sersi stood out. She had her usual second-to-none matter manipulation but was also Class 100 in strength and it was said Zuras himself feared her. I’m pretty sure she had some crazy feats which escape me right now ... maybe killing a Watcher?

Anyway, who wins?

General Comic Discussion / Ed Benes... yay or nay?

What do people think of Benes and his style and students? Second coming or too many unnecessary lines? Too cheesecakey or a real pioneer? Thoughts?
