  1. Well by scaling to Bison and Ryu Chun Li is herself legit superhuman. Both Bison and Ryu subsonic speed blitzers who casually catch and dodge bullets and who launch energy beams that can destroy large buildings and entire islands. And Chun Li herself is physically strong enough to kick down a large metal door and her kikosho is powerful enough to stop a speeding car in it’s tracks. Sorry if this is last minute but I’m just saying that by most accounts Chun Li feats are very superhuman and she’s had to fight and hold her own against characters like Bison and Ryu who are certainly comparable if not superior to the enemies that Rachel faces.
  2. Two equally deserving winners. Good job and great performances from @Twogunkid and @Culwych1!
  3. Very good debate guys. Not just for this one either but all your debates are going very well and it’s gonna be hard for me to ultimately choose where to cast my votes each match. Whoever ultimately wins this season will have really earned it!
  4. Probably Itachi. He’s got too many ways of one shooting the Nasty Boys.
  5. I think Judge Dredd’s previous experience with the Xenomorph’s and the fact that he always carries enough guns and ammunition to hold off a small army will give him the win.
  6. Yeah this challenge is literally made for Calendar Man. I don’t see how Copperhead pulls out a win here.
  7. I might be letting my heart override my head but I just have to back my girl Asuka. Mostly cause I think her being a defensive style fighter will be a very effective counter to Crimson Vipers’s fighting style. I really believe that Asuka’s keep-out game and her great reversals will keep Viper off balance and as long as she can land some heavy punches and kicks then I think she can pull an upset and take down Crimson Viper.
  8. Aw c’mon yo! What ever happened to what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? And if Will’s psyche survived all of that then it must be pretty goddamn strong by now right?
  9. I mean if each Reaper has the Biomass of 1 million organic beings in their cores then I’d say that’s plenty of food for the Tyranids. Also again the Indoctrination process usually takes days or not a week to take effect, and the target must either be inside a Reaper or be exposed to a Reaper artifact during that time. Maybe the Reaps can get a handful of the lower class Tyranids brainwashed but not enough to make a difference in the war. It was my understanding that the Reapers only harvested the species that most impressed them during each cycle. Wasn’t that why only human colonies were targeted by the collectors during ME 2? Heck they outright ignored a Quarian who was on one of the human colonies cause they were only interested in the humans. So that tells me that not every species gets the “honor” of being used as fuel for a new Reaper, in fact probably only one or two is done each cycle cause the Reaps emphasize quality over quantity. So I’m still convinced that the Reaps numbers are much smaller then what Sovereign tried to sell us. After all he also clearly lied when he said “we have no beginning or no end.” Yeah DLC Leviathan calls bullshit on that statement Sovereign! Okay so maybe your Reaps are bigger, faster, and you got some pretty powerful guns, but the Tyranids will more then even the odds with their strong defense, their long history of adapting to any obstacle, and their sheer overwhelming numbers. The Tyranids Hive and Bio-Ships are the greatest Battleships of Warhammer 40k, they might be slow and ungainly but they are designed to take insane amounts of damage and keep going. Their ships are covered by very thick clouds of defensive spores and their armor plating are arguably the most durable metal in the 40k universe, even insanely advanced races like the Imperium and the Necrons defensive plating is no match for it. Also unlike your Reaps who rely heavily on stacking the deck in their favor and on being able to take out their foes leadership before the war even starts, every single new galaxy my Tyrs go into they do so blind. Their foes technology and their weapons are always unknown to them and yet time after time again they are able to adapt, evolve and overcome any and every sort of weapon or method of killing that their foes have and utterly destroy them. They’ve done this since time immemorial to untold numbers of sentient races and that’s mostly cause they’ve learned to endure and survive almost anything the universe can throw at them. Your Reaps will be hard pressed to throw anything at the Tyrs that they haven’t seen before, but the Tyrs technology will definitely be something the Reaps have never had to deal with before. Finally and most importantly, the Tyranids almost limitless reserves will be the ultimate nail in the Reapers coffin. They’ll start off with the superior numbers and they’ll keep getting larger and larger as long as they have biomass to feed on, like say the millions of organic mass the Reaps have in their cores or maybe the husks or other enslaved ground forces that have some organic mass to them. I see this war playing out like an Apollo Creed vs Rocky Balboa fight; your Reapers like Apollo will start out strong landing almost all the punches and keeping Rocky/Tyranids at a distance, but as the fight goes on y’all will start to get worried as you notice Rocky/Tyrs keeps eating shot after shot and refuses to back down. During the final rounds y’all will be exhausted and confused and you’ll make a mistake and get yourself cornered and that’s when we’ll pounce and overwhelm you with our superior numbers and our almost suicidal need to devour anything and everything! The Reapers maybe the Gods of the Milky Way galaxy, but the Tyranids the devils of the entire universe.
  10. Yeah and Trevor fluctuates between being a badass vampire hunter and a intoxicated bum who loses fights to a handful of bar pub mooks. Look TWK we can either go back and forth between comparing our guys lowest moments or we can agree that their best moments far outshine their worst and focus on what their best feats are. And in my case CW Flash at his best is a Relativistic speedster who can run from Central City to China in seconds and run around the world multiple times when he pushes himself. Thus Ollie being able to trap and restrain Flash by himself should also be a huge feat for Deathstroke considering he taught Oliver everything he knew and has consistently proven himself to be at least his equal if not his superior: Ollie and Slade have fought each other four times throughout the series, 2 of which (the fight at Arrow Cave and on the sinking ship) were clear Slade wins, the one in the forest Slade had clearly incapacitated Ollie and had him at his mercy until Thea blindsided and pulled a gun on him and 4th one was really the only time Ollie finally got a fair win over Slade. So I think it’s fair to say that Slade scales to Ollie and that Ollie’s feats against meta humans like Flash and Supergirl could be replicated by Slade. Yeah and Deathstroke can snap an assault weapon completely in two and can punch through a human’s chest cage. So I’d say his strength matches easily against Trevor’s. And if we also count Slade’s mirakuru soldiers feats then Slade can also punch through a steel wall, a much greater show of strength then any of Trevor’s feats. Roid rage or not the facts seem to suggest Slade is just as strong if not stronger then Trevor Belmont. Well again Deathstroke scales to Arrow who has reacted to far greater speed feats then Alucard. Also c’mon now TGK how can you try to play down Arrow’s fight with Flash when Alucard was also clearly playing with Trevor. I think we both know that if Alucard went all out Belmont would be dead. But for for the sake of fairness let’s just agree to accept both feats as if they were fair game: Trevor reacting to Alucard’s speed is impressive, but Deathstroke scaling to Arrow who reacts to Flash speed is far more so. Fair point, but Slade will still have access to his Sniper Rifle and AL-47 yes? Then my argument that Slade can ambush and take Trevor out from afar still holds water. Ollie is also highly situationally aware and has spotted ambushes, traps, even supernatural being attacks in several Arrowverse crossovers and yet Slade has had no trouble sneaking up on him on him and Thea during the fight on Lian Yu or surprising him at his own Arrow Cave. If he can get the drop on Oliver he can get the drop on Trevor. Furthermore the terrain only improves Slade’s odds of getting the drop on Trevor since Slade is a master of Island combat thanks to his years on Lian Yu and as far as I know Trevor has never been on an island before. Slade’s stealth will be further magnified, while Trevor’s brashness and inability to shut up for surely make himself an easy target. It’s perfectly reasonable to say that Slade could surprise and take out Trevor before he can react and even if Belmont spots him first Slade’s superior skill, physical stats, advanced weapons and terrain familiarity will make him the favorite to win.
  11. Well I mean if Tinker Bell survives a nuke from orbit then I for one would give up at that point lol. Seriously though, let’s just assume for arguments sake that blowing up Never Land is against the rules and Dominator knows that from the start, again she has other options: send her Dominator-Bots after Tink. Even if they can’t kill her they can always capture Tinker Bell on their special handcuffs and bring her to Dominator. She and her Bots can also try taking Tinker Bell’s friends hostage to force her to come to them. Again she took Wander prisoner at the series finale surely she can do the same for the Lost Boys or the other fairies. Lord Dominator again has the option of burning Tink alive with her lava or freezing her to death with her ice. Heck Never Land is an island in the middle of an ocean, they’ll be plenty of water for if Dominator wants to try drowning Tink. Again Dominator has plenty of ways to kill Tinker Bell and most importantly she’ll be able to get to her long before Ratigan will be able to.
  12. Yeah but after blowing up the school didn’t Joker try to kill him at a nightclub and Batman had to step in to save Maxie? So I’m pretty sure Joker’s had his fill of tormenting Maxie and now just wants to kill him. Well in the case of Zemo his Hydra troops tried to kill Batroc first for failing to defeat Captain America. And with AIM they had kidnapped him and were forcing him to work for them against his will. So again as long as the Legion doesn’t betray him first or hold him against his will he’ll serve them faithfully. And look even if we must discount Bane as part of the Legion what about Captain Cold? He’s also a villain with a pretty solid honors system and he made the Legion. Heck Cold will likely see Batroc as a kindred spirit and likely help Batroc in joining the Legion.
  13. The Reapers used the Thorian spores in ME3? Sorry dude I played Mass Effect 3 and that’s just not true. In fact in the email Shepard got from Zhu’s Hope (the colony the Thorian originally enslaved) the people there were actually very successful in resisting the Reapers attack mostly because the lingering effects of the spores allowed them to communicate and coordinate attacks very well. Never mentioned anything about the Reapers using the Thorian spores. Also the Reapers were only able to indoctrinate the Rachni children and only through surgical implantation and genetic modification. That plus the fact that they were unable to indoctrinate the Rachni Queen seems to suggest that the Rachni were also immune to the brainwashing type indoctrination, just like how I imagine the Tyranids will be. Actually in ME 2 it was revealed that Reapers are are at least internally created from the raw genetic material of organic races. Remember the Human-Reaper that the Collectors were abducting human colonists in order to create? EDI estimated that millions of humans would be needed to fill that thing up, so if the other Reapers were also filled with millions of organic biomass’s then I’m thinking that’ll be a good meal for the Tyranids to feed on. Also again not only have the Rachni and Thorian also been able to resist indoctrination, but I as I also recall it takes Reapers days if not a week to indoctrinate a host and said host must be inside a Reaper during that process. So the Reapers brainwashing technique definitely has it’s limits. I’m not sure if the Reapers can actually hit a target from a solar system distance away, but I do concede to the point that the Reapers will have a mobility and speed advantage. However that advantage will be offset by the Tyranids clear numbers advantage. Even if the Reapers are able to take out half the Tyranid forces before they close the distance the remaining Hive Ships will be then sufficient to smother the Reaper forces. How do I know that? Well despite Sovereign’s claims of the Reapers numbers being able to “darken the sky of every world” the truth is the Reapers numbers must actually be pretty small as we know that only one new Reaper is created at the end of each cycle, created from the remnants of the organic races that most impressed the Reapers at the time. Now while we don’t know how old Harbinger (the first Reaper to have been created) is, the Leviathan of Dis is considered to have been one of the first Reapers created after Harbinger and Leviathan is said to have been nearly 1 billion years old. And since every cycle is about 50,000 years give or take then at the time of ME 3 there must have been around 20,000 Reapers in the Milky Way. Not bad, except that every Tyranid Hive fleet averages at least 1,000,000 bio-ships. So again their superior numbers will more then make up for the Reapers speed advantage.
  14. Uh Doomsday tanked Darkseid’s Omega Beam at point blank and then beat the dog shit out of him. I think that article needs to redo it’s research.
  15. Well maybe not so much the comics but as for other mediums: Well let’s just say that Shazy has had some pretty embarrassing moments lol. Seriously though while Shazam can on occasion get the best of Supey the clear majority of the time Superman is portrayed as being stronger then Shazam: And Doomsday at his strongest form was portrayed as far too powerful for Superman to kill even when he stops holding back and actually tried to kill Doomsday. In fact that version of Doomsday only meet his end at the hands of Imperiex, you know the being that almost destroyed the entire universe.
  16. But Batroc giving his enemies a fair chance isn’t an example of disloyalty. That’s just him having a code of honor. Doesn’t Bane also have a similar mindset? Batroc the Leaper is nothing if not loyal to whomever he’s given his word to serve. Like the time Ulysses Claw hired him to be apart of his assault on Wakanda, even when the tide turned against Klaw’s forces Batroc still fought along side Klaw and didn’t flee even when it was clear they were about to lose. Again that loyalty plus his lack of ambition or tendency to backstab his allies I think will make him most attractive to the Legion. I would think Joker would prefer to straight up kill a flake like Maxie. He only goes the extra mile in making someone suffer if they’re actually worthy of it. Also again the rest of the Legion also know of Maxie’s numerous screw ups so why would they be eager to let a screw up like him into such an illustrious club of villainy?
  17. In my experience Artemis has always been one of the weaker Greek gods/goddesses. Sure she’s handled the occasional arrogant mortal or demi god but has she ever had to take on a fellow full on godlike being? Not that I’m aware of. Also Zeus was clearly afraid of Artemis hurting Callisto, not himself. If anything he seemed more scared of Hera’s wrath then Artemis. Again Amaterasu has actually had to fight her fellow godly siblings Tsukuyomi and Susano and she absolutely kicked their asses! That plus her writing the books about being a samurai and bushido makes me trust her more to lead the Ewoks to repeal the Empire more. Also whose room say that she won’t be able to teach the Ewoks how to wield katanas? They seemed to learn how to drive a speeder bike or an AT-ST quickly enough.
  18. It’s lava not fire TGK, and lava is decidedly much hotter then fire. And while yes she uses her magma more then her ice that’s mostly because she didn’t discover her ice powers until halfway through the second season. But that doesn’t mean she won’t be able to use it to kill Tink if she needs to. Well again she’s taken hostages before, like during the finale when she held Wander hostage. Look your the one who says she shouldn’t be allowed to blow up Never Land now your saying she can? Which is it dude? Too straightforward? Sorry I didn’t know that the rulebook of assassination said that every single kill has to be overly complicated with no less then 5 steps and needs at least several days to go into effect. Look slick I think your really overthinking what this scenario is requiring our villains to do. The challenge is very simple: Which villain can take the fairy out? How and why they do it are left very ambiguous, so I for one think any way is allowed from taking hostages, using drones or even blowing up Never Land itself. Sorry but there are no rules that say they aren’t allowed to do so.
  19. It seemed pretty realistic to Graham when he did it. And Will is a trained FBI agent who hunts serial killers for a living. Psycho Dr Grant doesn’t have anything on Hannibal Lecter or Francis “The Tooth Fairy” Dolarhyde. He can handle anyone who presents a danger to him. Also in the movie three people were able to survive the event so I’d think they’d still be sane enough to help Will survive. At the very least they’d be able to explain to him how to avoid getting spaced and how to safely split the ship in two like how they did in the movie.
  20. Hey wait a minute I’ve played Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator several times and Stormtroopers aren’t a faction in it! It looks like someone just customized the Tornado Troopers to look like Stormtroopers. Sorry but that definitely isn’t a canon work. Also like C.T. the Star Wars novel Death Troopers already showed us what would happen if the Stormtroopers encountered zombies and it doesn’t end well for the Troopers.
  21. But as I also pointed out Dominator has abilities far more powerful then a simple early gunpowder era bomb. Like for example her ability to manipulate lava or ice. She can either burn Tinker Bell alive or freeze her to death. So even if you still wanna argue that her blowing up Never Land is too over the top to be considered an assassination (I will still argue otherwise though) she can still kill Tinker Bell in other ways. She’s also not above taking hostages like Peter, the Lost Boys or the other fairies to force Tinker Bell to come to her. Most importantly though her methods will be much faster and more of a guarantee kill then hoping that Ratigan’s long and overly complicated plan works.
  22. My point still stands though, once up close the zombies will either through the Troopers armor with their hands or bite through the weak spots in their joints. And the big thing to remember is that WWZ zombies is that it only takes 12 seconds for someone to turn into a zombie once bitten. That’s gonna be huge for a scenario like this cause the Stormtroopers are so used to fighting as a disciplined and organized unit that once some of their own men suddenly turn on them I think that’ll really shock them and lead to much panic and discord amongst the remaining troops. And sorry but thermal detonators I feel won’t be the game charger you think they’ll be. The zombies are really fast so unless some of the Stormtroopers are willing to do a kamikaze like attack I don’t see too many zombies getting caught in the blast range. Eh I haven’t seen a droid tear through a steel door before. The thing is once the zombies get close enough I absolutely see getting a bite out the trooper before it realizes it needs to stab the head in order to kill it. And by that point it’ll be too late. And correction: their infected dead humans. Their nervous system is no longer functioning at that point, that’s why they feel no pain when punching through a glass window or recoil even when stabbed or shot at. So I think setting their blasters on stun will be the absolute worst move for the Stormtroopers. It’d be like trying to take down a zombie with a taser, like their dead they literally can’t feel pain like that anymore. Again I really think in a situation like this their training will ultimately work against them. Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t Stormtrooper training seek to actively discourage individualism and creativity in favor of almost mindless obedience to order and the chain of command? Well that mindset will not be useful against zombies because most of the troops won’t be thinking about how shots to the enemies chest area doesn’t seem to be working or how it might be a better idea to fall back rather then let the zombies surround and trap them. Their training to be thoughtless and passionless weapons of the emperor will ultimately make them very poor zombie fighters.
  23. Oh yeah? I should remind folks that as a criminal profiler Will’s job is to literally put himself in the mindset of the killers he’s tracking down and literally visualize himself doing the crimes in order to figure out where they’ll strike next. I remember one episode where in order to protect his family Will actually had to visualize how if he was in the killers shoes how he would break into and murder his family. He literally envisioned himself murdering his own wife and son in cold blood in a very disturbing and gritty manner in order to protect them! So again Will’s already had to face just about every fear and insecurity he has ever thought of, his sanity at this point is unbreakable. If there are other passengers on board that can only help Will. He might not know how to work a space ship but he can surely enlist the few survivors who are still sane to help him do the whole split the ship in two theory that Laurence Fishburne did in the movie. And as long as he has his gun he can take care of psycho Dr Grant.
  24. The most important demographic for a smartphone to appeal to is the teen and pre-teen demographic. Most of said teens and pre-teens have likely grew up with fond memoirs of Lucky and his very memorable and fun commercials. So if the leprechaun recommends the Amazon Fire Phone then I see a great number of them going out and buying the product on that alone. No offense to Snap, Crackle and Pop but I just don’t remember their commercials as vividly as Lucky’s.
