  1. Let's see. Catwoman has a Batpod. Bane has his own Tumbler. WTF is Nolan planning?!
  2. Good to be back. I intend to hang around this time, pending real life etc etc etc. I just read up on Public Enemies. It seems they may have altered some things in the comic to movie transition. Seeing as Public Enemies covers up to the SuperBat robot destroying the meteor, and Luthor's kryptonite powered armour, that's only really the beginning of the Superman/Batman teamups in the comics. Also, in the comics where Toyman builds the SuperBat robot etc, it's actually Captain Atom that flies the robot into the meteor, therefore causing him to transform and jump into the Wildcats world. Batman was about to jump in the robot, but Capt Atom basically says "No, let me." I just noticed that in the Public Enemies movie, it's Batman that flies the robot into the meteor? Yeah, not from the comics. Also, in Bruce Wayne: Murderer, or whatever it was, there is a panel I remember with Batman distinctly telling Cassandra "Well done, even I've never beaten Shiva" not long after she had beaten Shiva. This was the same comic in which Cassandra figured out how Vesper was knocked out with a nerve pinch prior to being killed by David Cain. I'm sure that in the time line, this happens after the comics that Public Enemies came from. Not calling you wrong DSkillz, not at all. It is obvious things occurred differently in the comic as opposed to the movie. About this fight: Um, X-23 wins.
  3. Nightwing is not better than Batgirl. Batgirl (Cassandra Kain, who xman4life was referring to) has beat Lady Shiva in combat. This is something that Dick AND Bruce have failed to do. Therefore, you could argue Cassandra is better than Both Nightwing and Batman.
  4. Kind of thankful he didn't get the role. He looks like a natural Supes. If he WAS Edward, then it would've been someone else, or "Hey, Edward's playing Superman!"
  5. I put this in a thread back in Feb, but Cavill certainly has credentials. This is from his Wiki, and it's all been certified etc. Cavill had been set to star as Superman in director McG’s 2004 film Superman: Flyby. However, McG pulled out of the project and direction was taken over by director Bryan Singer, who recast Brandon Routh as the lead. Cavill was also the cause of a write-in effort from fans to see him cast as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). The role eventually went to Robert Pattinson. Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, was outspokenly in favor of Cavill playing the character of Edward Cullen in the Twilight film, calling him her "perfect Edward". By the time production of the film began, however, Cavill was too old to play the character, and again the role went to Robert Pattinson. In 2005, Cavill was a final contender for the role of James Bond in Casino Royale. The producers and director Martin Campbell were torn between him and Daniel Craig; reportedly Campbell supported Cavill but the producers preferred an older Bond. Ultimately Craig landed the role. In their December 2005 issue, Empire magazine dubbed Cavill the "Unluckiest Man in Hollywood" for this series of near-misses. So yeah. He's certainly got the skills, and now he has his chance. Just hope he can deliver. I think with Nolan and Snyder cracking the whip, he'll do that in spades.
  6. Unlike the Spiderman reboot costume, they've actually put effort into this. I'm guessing that's what you're referring to. Made from a basketball? That's a unique way of looking at it I guess. I still love that they've made the "S" bigger than it was in returns. Personally? I can't wait for this. Oh, and I think Amy Adams will play an awesome Lois. Way better than Kate Bosworth anyway.
  7. So far, its been announced he's going to be facing Zod, and uh..can't remember her name but she's basically ursa, just not Ursa.
  8. Depends. In the DCU, the #1 ranked weapon WAS the GL Power Ring, but for all intents and purposes it'd probably now be the White Lantern Ring given that it runs off the power of creation. I'll post some more later.
  9. Agreed. Love what they've done with the suit, and Cavill certainly looks the part. He almost looks regal, for lack of a better term?
  10. ...except if Mercer decided to use his biomass to create the "Hey Tank? Watch me cleave you in half!" combo of Guyver-esque armour and armblades. If he does that from the get go, Dante will have a hard time hitting him. Also, Mercer is a parkour expert, and can easily scale skyscrapers. He also has attacks that do insane amount of damage from a great height. Dunno who'd win, honestly.
  11. Alright, to me this is a stomp in the favour of Scar. Nothing less than that a stomp. Batman beats the Joker up on a regular basis. Batman also has issues with a normal, non-buffed Predator even with reflective armour, sonar, and all his other gadgets. How exactly does the Joker have a chance here? You've even given his bodyguards (who are normally special-forces level armed to the hilt) quite basic weaponry. As I said, Scar stomps.
  12. Please familiarise yourself with http://www.electricferret.com/forum/index....showtopic=13477 before attempting to claim characters for arcs.
  13. Dunno. I'd have to say Bruce wins this. He'll team up with John Henry Irons (the original Steel) and make a suit that could probably obliterate the planet. Bruce. Bruce would offer Tony a whisky, and then Tony would want the whole bottle. Bruce wins.
  14. No point. Just use Thor and say it's Odin Force. In fact, the database is getting bogged down with characters that aren't needed. Should trim it down.
  15. Alright. You've seen all the Jason movies. I invite you to once again watch the battle in Jason X between Jason and the fully armed soldiers. Note how Jason outwits, outguns, and eventually takes down the entire squad simply by hiding in shadows, striking when needed. How could someone with the mind of a kid could do what I've explained above?
  16. Are you for real? You don't think Jason X is smart? Have you even seen the movie? Obviously not, because if you had, you'd be retracting everything you just said. I also refute your comment about popularity. If MMPR win, THAT is because of popularity, and not because of a logical, thought out battle.
  17. You obviously haven't seen Jason X. Even before he got upgraded, he was smart enough to outwit a team of Marines on board a space station simply by playing hide and seek.
  18. Except, unlike the other MMPR monsters, they wouldn't be able to harm Jason X prior to calling Titanus. Therefore, Jason X would not be flailing around going "OH WOE IS ME!" Ergo, when the Ultrazord forming sequence is going ahead, Jason X takes the initiative, races in, and completely screws the Rangers up.
  19. Just before I reply thoroughly later, does anyone else think that there's no way in hell Superman would let someone like Frank run around as a gun-toting good guy?
  20. 1) Welcome to the CBUB. Please respond in a respectful, mature manner in fight threads and enjoy your stay. 2) Yes, Team Jason would win. But, as above, when stating why please do it in a respectful manner.
  21. The maturity exhibited by several users in this thread has astounded me. If petty vulgar insults are being thrown out, I'll soon be forced to act.
  22. Not sure about the Jason goes to hell thing, never saw it. But with Jason X, this is debatable. Sure, he took a rocket to the head that blew his head apart, but (and this is up for interpretation) I doubt the nanomachines would have touched him if he was dead. I prefer to class him as "almost dead". The nanomachines saw Jason as an anomaly that needed to be repaired, and repaired and regenerated him in accordance with the technology from that time period. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that he'd probably regen from anything the Rangers could throw at him. Heck, he could survive in space if need be .I mean, the only way he was defeated in Jason X was because Blomsky sacrificed himself to fly Jason straight to earth, and Jason burnt up on re-entry. But then again, with his mask laughing at the end, he probably wasn't truly dead.
