ICT / Re: Top 10 most powerful MCU characters (post Infinity War)
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:55:59 PM »
No way is Thor above Hela.

Hela wrecked the shit out of him every time they fought and Thor had to sacrifice the whole of Asgard to stop her. No way he is above her even with Stormbreaker, I know he had a great run of showings in IW but steady the fuck on, she was a whole other league to Thor.

Spidey has a clean win over the Hulk and he's the strongest one there is so that's your answer if you're looking for a one-off underdog possibility rather than an average showing.

We've been talking a lot abut Thor, Thanos, and Strange, but what are some random bits that stood out to you.  How is your ranking of these characters now?

Spider Man - over powered the pull of space on Ebony Maw's ship

Did he? I thought he actually failed to do that himself and it was the extra Stark tech arms that hauled him back in, I might be misremembering though.

In the first fight scene though he did catch a flying taxi with a web and overpower the momentum on it and then fling it back at source which I thought was pretty impressive, he was quite casual about it too. He also caught an overhead hammer swing from Black Dwarf or whatever his name is, who seemed to have the better of Tony in his nano armour.


Impossible to say as we never saw Thanos without the power stone. Loki (who is familiar with both) seemed to think that Hulk had a good shot.

2. Dr. Strange gave up his Infinity Stone too easily. In the comics, Dr. Strange has ventured to Hell with Dr. Doom. Maybe he plans to form a team in the afterlife to bring Death to l

Yeah but Strange had a plan. He watched millions of possible futures via the time stone and only one had Thanos losing. Clearly that involves Stark which is why he was willing to trade the stone for Tony's life.

Superboy Prime was explicitly overpowered by a peak mindset Superman and E2 Superman(50% of Pre-Crisis Superman) together.

No he wasn't. If they were enough to overpower him together then why bother the attempt to depower him (and themselves in the process)?

IMHO SBP was portrayed as significantly above the Superman duo in that story.

So, where does the forge feat for Thor rank? The forge itself was huge and have we seen anyone take that kind of blast before in the movies?

A concentrated dose of "the full force of a star" for a few minutes? Easily the best durability feat amongst movie characters. Can't think of anything that comes close really.

So is the Thanos vs everyone on Titan scene now the best comic movie fight scene ever? Got to be right up there.

Also Star Lord is an idiot and directly at fault for the deaths of half of the universe. And as he's now dead it's unlikely he'll play any role in setting that right so not too great a portrayal for him.

Yeah it was insanely dense but I felt like it worked well as it has been earned at this point. I thought it was right up there with the very best Marvel films (although obviously extremely different from something like Winter Soldier). Off-hand I'm struggling to think of many/any other films that can match it in terms of ambition and scope (although those aren't necessarily indicative of quality, it's something pretty exciting to see on-screen).

Everyone had some cool moments, even Hulk's beat-down was preceded by a cool entrance and it's at least mitigated by Thanos having the Power Gem (Loki seemed to think Hulk was a threat to Thanos and he has experience with both). Stark's new armour and Thor get most of the stand-outs I would say but Cap's entrance was very enjoyable.

Thor's battle board shit is insane, the sun thing was the icing on the cake but Thanos with the full gauntlet suggests that he could have been one-shot killed by his new hammer/axe had it hit him in the head rather than the torso (the thrown hammer also flat overpowers a direct concentrated blast from the full gauntlet on it's way to impaling Thanos).

Really expected Stark to buy it and genuinely did a little gasp when Thanos stabs him even though I expected him to die there, if/when he does die it will feel like the end of a very special era in many ways.

Still don't like ninja whip Dr Strange but he does a few more exotic things vs Thanos at least. And he uses the time gem to view millions of possible alternate futures and seems to have set the ball rolling down the direction of the one single future in which Thanos loses by handing over the time gem in exchange for Stark's life.

The ending was great. Probably expected it to end with Thanos triumphant to set up the last Avengers but it's still a pretty bold decision to end with such a big villain win. I imagine some parents taking their kids probably weren't expecting the movie to end with loads of major characters dying in anguish, Spider-Man whimpering that he doesn't want to die as he melts away into ash etc. If you weren't a comic nerd and weren't familiar with the Infinity Gauntlet storyline etc I imagine it's quite a shocking finale.

Loved it, am seeing it again on Sunday so I hope I'll catch a few things I missed first time around, there really is so much going on.

WWH  < War <<< Worldbreaker IMHO.

That's in raw power terms at least. WWH was a canny fighter and he had been War previously so I wouldn't rule out a Xerxes scenario by any means.

The other possibility is that WWH could "dial up" when the situation called for it. He didn't fight many equal or superior opponents, probably only Zom and Sentry, and in both cases rose to meet the challenge (although some would argue they dropped to his level rather than him rising up - based on what came later under Pak there was an implication that WWH represented a held back Hulk so presumably he could, if faced with a suitable challenge, rise to meet it).


I find it hard to believe

The series started in 2008. Can't remember how many issues it ran but it lasted a couple of years at least.

Mad that it's been a decade since World War Hulk. I think that was my favourite time on boards like these, every issue triggered a full on meltdown. People analysing footprints to decide if Hulk stopped Juggernaut or not was a personal favourite.


In the latest Avengers 688 Hercules requires help to move a machine that has the weight of the world. It  was stated that he needed the help of either Thor or Hulk to do the feat. Given that  N52 SM was doing bench-press with the weight of the Earth for 5 days, and old SM moved a machine with the weight of the planet it pretty much ends any discussion on who's stronger.

It's amazing that someone who has posted here as long as you have could still come to conclusions like this based on single isolated feats by different writers.

This issue had it stated straight up that Grandmaster-Prime could not destroy a planet under his own power, yet he easily owned the Hulk, who can and has destroyed planets under different writers. This author clearly is not interested in writing characters who can perform planetary-level feats. That does not mean that the same applies for all writers.

Having said all that... yeah Superman is stronger than Hercules and anyone who disputes that is silly.


ICT / Re: Batman in a 90-year-old body vs. Crossbones (HtH only)
« on: April 06, 2018, 03:30:48 PM »
Crossbones looked a fair way above Punisher in their encounter a few years back IMHO for what it's worth, although it wasn't decisive. In that issue he was depicted as pretty damn strong too, IIRC at one point he throws a knife clean through a jeep, in one side, straight through the engine to disable it, and it's still travelling when it punches through the opposite side of the vehicle.

In fairness Crossbones did lose to Black Widow an issue later if memory serves, but he did get suckered a bit I think and had a claymore go off in his face during the Punisher scuffle shortly beforehand.

Yeah it was a proper slog getting through the first volume and I had absolutely no desire to go any further with it thereafter. Some cool moments but at no point did I feel engaged with any of the characters or the setting so it all fell very flat.


ICT / Re: Juggernaut VS Black Bolt
« on: March 31, 2018, 09:40:32 AM »
I could see some writers have the voice drop Juggernaut using the "out" of it being partially sonic-based* and thus bypassing Juggy's durability (see: Juggy vs Nimrod). Otherwise, it's tough to see Black Bolt win, especially given how watered down he has been in his physicals in recent times.


*I'm aware it wasn't originally supposed to be a sonic-based attack at all before anyone points that out, but it's been portrayed that way too often to ignore.
