Lol Hammerless Thor just tossed Proxima, Black Swan, Hela and an Elder of the universe out on their collective asses and they couldn't do shit about it.

Sounds like she's more powerful, and Reed is more skilled.  Comics rarely portray skill advantages like boards think, so absent prep Reed may be in trouble.   To know the answer to this, however, would involve reading Ms. Marvel which isn't gonna happen.

Who/what was the third Clark Kent?  Has that been answered yet?

The most powerful sith in the EU are planetary destroyers, not galaxy.  I don't know that that will make it much better in your eyes, but it's not quite as absurd as sith personally destroying galaxies.

So the new Quasar is apparently the most powerful hero on Marvel Earth by absolute MILES.

In this week's Captain America, they test a planetary shield. First they hit it with 30 nuclear warheads, which reduces the shield to 99% capacity (so 1% damage).

Next, they get Jane-Thor, Blue Marvel, Hyperion, Spectrum and Starbrand to hit it with everything they have. Their combined assault reduces the shield to 92% (so 7% damage).

Quasar then steps up, and completely solo, knocks the shield down to 51% (so 41% damage) before passing out from the strain. That means her offensive output is roughly 6 times the combined offensive output of Thor, Blue Marvel, Hyperion, Spectrum and Starbrand.

Captain America compares the Quantum Bands to a Galactus or Celestial level power.

Ridiculous feat.


Haha, why do writers do shit like this?

The EU was a huge part of Star Wars Canon before Disney killed it.

Anakin's full potential was a huge part of the various novels and what not.

No dispute here.

Fair to say that Unworthy Thor was extremely anti-climatic. Hate those fake-out covers; Thor and Thanos don't even meet, never mind fight.

Thor decides not to even try to pick up Ultimate Mjolnir as it isn't his hammer. He summons lightning to BFR Proxima Midnight and co but that's all he does combat wise in the whole issue.

The mystery figure is Hela who's game was apparently to seduce Thanos (she also kicks the shit out of Proxima).

Also, what Fury whispered to Thor to make him unworthy is finally revealed:

"Gorr was right."

That's it. Apparently Thor had never considered the possibility that gods could be vain and arrogant creatures until Fury whispered it to him in the middle of a fight and he instantly became unworthy? Weird.

At least the art is good, apart from Thanos who looks terrible for some reason.


It was interesting.  I didn't expect to much.  There was never really anything that Fury could have whispered to Thor that could have been mind blowing.  I expected it to be something simple and disappointing to many.  It was evident early on that the hooded figure is Hela and we should all expect that the comics will fall in line with the upcoming movie, so Thanos and Hela getting their romance on should be of no surprise.

I still think the reveal that Mjolnir is a sentient being trapped by Odin inside a hammer would have done the trick, and been far more believable a reason for Thor to feel unworthy.  I didn't like the Mjolnir revelation, but if he's going to do it then that's an answer tying everything together.

Wait a fucking minute.

That used to be a huge fucking plot point.

That Vader was a weakened version of what Anakin could have become had he not been cut up by Obi.

Is this not the case anymore?

Vader is more than Prequel Anakin but less than he could have been.  I also don't know if I would say it's a huge plot point since it's never brought up or stated on film.

It's hard to say whether Jedi and Sith get old. Dooku functioned well at an advanced age, as did the Emperor. So did Yoda. But was that their prime? OTOH Lucas said Vader and Kenobi were crippled, old men when they fought. So is the Vader Luke fought less capable than the younger Vader who slew all the Jedi? I don't know.

The Lucas quote gets thrown around a lot and is at odds with the prequels, so I decided to actually look for it and sure enough the actual quote from Rolling Stone magazine changes the context a bit:

Interviewer:  Just how restrictive was [Vader's] costume?
Lucas:  He couldn't move at all, really. We had to keep modifying the suit so people could move in it. By the time we got to the first light-saber battle, we realized we weren't going to be able to do much. And so I accepted it was an old man vs. a half-man, half-machine. But Jedi were supposed to be quite active.

Seems like he wanted to do more

I think they'd be both a kickass and hilarious duo, yeah.  Tons of potential there.

One died of a heart attack in 92 and the others had a shitty match at Summerslam.

Isn't Kenobi's style based on defense, making him difficult to beat by more aggressive fighters? 

The Expanded Universe/Legends definitely said this, I'm not certain what Kenobi stuff has made it into new canon.  I'm trying to remember if Clone Wars ever actually talked about his form rather than just depicting it.

I watched it the whole way through and didn't feel burdened, so decent is a good word.  I'd like another season, though I'm afraid the backlash may have killed it.  The martial arts choreography was indeed subpar, I don't think anyone being honest with themselves would say otherwise, but it wasn't complete shit and that alone doesn't make or break a show imo.

Green Arrow.  League of Assassins and Ra's/Merlin/etc > troubled youth Hand and Bakuto.

I was hoping for more insight into Madame Gao's character.  I didn't think she was part of the Hand when she appeared on Daredevil, and after watching this series I'm not sure if she is or isn't.  Bakuto said she was, but he could have been using her as a scapegoat in his attempt to trick Danny.  However, Gao portrays herself as part of the Hand to Harold Meecham, so that seems pretty straightforward.  She's been a mystery throughout these shows and I hope they give us some real backstory soon.
