Finished this last season and that final fight was EPIC!!

Question though: Why doesn't Keith's bayard allow them to form their Blazing Sword, like Shiro did against Zarkon in Season 2?

And now that I have acknowledged your scans, would you care to comment on the multiple scans I provided in this thread?

The answer is clearly "No."

Definitely the most consistent, for television especially.

If Natasha has her guns it's just unfair. Or any tech Minerva has never experienced before so she can't react well.

In purely physical, hand to hand, melee, melee weapons, Natasha gets dissected. Widow is top 5 in the elite fighters on that show, with 1-4 being Sunny, Gaius Chau, Silvermoon, and Quinn when he was still alive. I'm not counting Dark Ones like MK and Pilgrim as they're on a ridiculous level on their own. Until B. Widow gets wire-fu and super strength, she loses.

Widow is better than both Chau and Silver Moon (who she beat straight up.)

It's the Best Popular Movie category, which will hopefully be renamed. Apparently it's a request by Disney/ABC to add this to the awards. Probably so most of their film properties can win something.

Either way, I don't really care about the Oscars like that.

I'm talking mostly about the big geopolitical stuff: international trade, the NATO alliance, etc. Not so much about immigration.

His international diplomacy has been abysmal, though.

Oh and I should be banned for misusing "You're." Apologies

Yes. Yes he is.

Trump was not temperamentally fit to be President, nor did he have the experience required as an administrator. His entire team was unprepared to govern.

However, I think we've (hopefully) seen the worst of his team's gross incompetence. In fact, Trump seems to be finding his feet in some ways by focusing on issues where he is not wrong: issues about America's place in a world that has changed. America can't really afford to, or sees no reason it should try to, be an Empire in name only, with few of the benefits. Essentially, why should America be the Empire only when the rest of the world wants one, paying the costs, while not getting the tribute and plunder a real Empire would?

Trump's one great strength is that he actually believes he can make significant change in a short period with the relatively weak powers of a President. This could also be his greatest weakness as there are many reasons to doubt this can be done. Furthermore, Trump may or may not be adept at the tactics of actually effecting this change. But he is trying. For all his bullshit, he has a puncher's chance at straightening some things out that nobody thought could/would be straightened out.

You're entire last paragraph is objectively wrong.

I don't even know what 'racist' means anymore.

The definition hasn't changed.

Orion would destroy Blue Marvel.

Oh so Orion can beat Sentry too?
So if it were a dumb fight, it wouldn't be any back and forth u moron. It's a good fight.

Abhi saying something stupid doesn't mean its a good matchup. Don't use his bias as proof.

Quark is A LOT smarter. He's also shown he has some modicum of loyalty/honor, which is more than I can say for Trump. So he'd probably be better, yes.

The Ultimates take 6-7/10, imo.

I think while Orion may be slightly more powerful than BM, Marvel is A LOT smarter.

Monica is also better versed in her powers and had better battle tactics/skills than Lightray. Granted, I'm not fully aware of all of Lightray's fights, so could be swayed.

Barda vs Ms. Marvel goes to Barda. Barda vs Binary goes to Carol.

Mr. Miracle has better tech than BP and maybe slightly better tactics, simply because its his power. But it's close and not a sure thing.

That leave BM, Spectrum and Captain Marvel vs Mr. Miracle. He's good but not that good.

IT loses horribly to both the Doctor and the Enterprise crew. In fact, I'm pretty sure they've already dealt with nightmare creatures and such before.

IT kills every member of the Alien crew, though.

Luke probably cuts in half.
