Where did you do anything except copy/pasting arguments from comicvine?

where do you see this comment on comicvine idiot?

"The moon/planet Mon-El is holding is small enough that you can see its curvature. That's...like, small asteroid sized or something.

Then it's slamming into a 'star', which...again, curvature comparison with the planetoid/asteroid/moon/whatever it's supposed to be, so it's a really, really small star. I mean, even if that planet is the size of Earth, it shouldn't look like that. Here's a comparison. Based on that, an Earth-sized plant slamming into the Sun would look like it was hitting a flat wall at the distance shown.

And the Sun? Not exactly a big star.

I don't know what to make of this scan.                   "


just admit you can't make a good rebuyttal against it.  and Mon El tossing supposedly large planets isn't even comparable to Hulk Exitar feat, or him lifting the weight of a star, or destroying tons of mindless ones that dormammu had trouble with. and again only pre crisis mon El did that feat, and not applicable to superman  Hulk himself held together a planet bigger than earth by himself, Held matter and anti matter Apart, overpower Planet moving blast etc

Hydra Cap seems to be the obvious pick but IM seems like he would have an easier time rallying people since he can probably just use Extremis to control them.

It also just occurred to me that we will probably see an Dark Avengers down the road with a Hydra Cap, Superior Spider-Man, and a version of Superior Iron Man.

There's also Iron Maniac as an alternate.

If you still buy into the GOP and corporate Democratic notion of so-called "Free market healthcare" you are either uniformed, a crook, or a willing dupe.

Analyst report notes that Gilead’s hep C cure will make less than $4 billion this year.

One-shot cures for diseases are not great for business—more specifically, they’re bad for longterm profits—Goldman Sachs analysts noted in an April 10 report for biotech clients, first reported by CNBC.

The investment banks’ report, titled “The Genome Revolution,” asks clients the touchy question: “Is curing patients a sustainable business model?” The answer may be “no,” according to follow-up information provided.

Analyst Salveen Richter and colleagues laid it out:

Quote from: Goldman Sachs
The potential to deliver “one shot cures” is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically engineered cell therapy, and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies... While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow.

For a real-world example, they pointed to Gilead Sciences, which markets treatments for hepatitis C that have cure rates exceeding 90 percent. In 2015, the company’s hepatitis C treatment sales peaked at $12.5 billion. But as more people were cured and there were fewer infected individuals to spread the disease, sales began to languish. Goldman Sachs analysts estimate that the treatments will bring in less than $4 billion this year.

Quote from: Goldman Sachs
“[Gilead]’s rapid rise and fall of its hepatitis C franchise highlights one of the dynamics of an effective drug that permanently cures a disease, resulting in a gradual exhaustion of the prevalent pool of patients,” the analysts wrote. The report noted that diseases such as common cancers—where the “incident pool remains stable”—are less risky for business.

Barring a possible single instance where he tries to fool Logan and gets sniffed out, I don't see any way for Wolverine to win. He gets dumped somewhere else 9/10.
