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.
Please note that forum is still under construction.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Isn't Kenobi's style based on defense, making him difficult to beat by more aggressive fighters?
