  1. Probably the Predalien. Going toe to toe with an experienced Predator like Wolf trumps anything the Indoraptor did.
  2. Dave and Balthazar are pretty powerful sorcerers and the dragons from Reign of Fire were killed by mere mortals with pretty rudimentary explosives. I see the sorcerers or “Merlineans” taking down the dragon.
  3. Nathan done plenty of tightroping and climbing about throughout his video game series. So unless someone can make a compelling argument about Hasky (who I know nothing about) then I’d have to give it to Drake by default.
  4. I don’t like Elsa’s chances here. She’s never tried to freeze something as big as Smaug.
  5. In that case it’ll actually be a closer fight I think. Ultimately though Rodan will still probably take it thanks to his greater speed and durability.
  6. Both can probably talk Carrie down, but I’d really only trust Beast to be able to save the people threatened by her powers. So Beast wins by virtue of being able to complete BOTH tasks.
  7. Sorry Holo Doc, but give me Rebecca Chambers as my bedside doctor any day! 🥰
  8. What version of Rodan? Because some of them (particularly the Monsterverse one) might be a bit too big for the transformers to handle.
  9. Awesome write-up Boratz! Great to see you writing again! I’ll back Crosshairs, the guy is cold, professional, and his eyesight is enhanced to the point he doesn’t require night vision scopes to be able to accurately hit targets in the dead of night. The Indoraptor won’t be able to hide from him for long, and he’ll snipe the Dino long before it gets close.
  10. Does Ron get his broom? Cause between that and his apparition spell I don’t doubt for a second Ron can survive Isla Sorna. Eric Kirby survived on the island for eight weeks, and he didn’t have half the magical tools and spells Ron has.
  11. Is the jungles of Jumanji really that dangerous? I mean 12 year old Allen Parrish survived the place for 26 years. Surely Mini-Me can survive for 24 hours.
  12. Isabela would do very well in this scenario, being pretty much born into that lifestyle thanks to her mother Madam Hari. Before converting to the Qun, Madam Hari was an infamous charlatan who would often pose as a Rivaini seer for weeks on end to con money out of villagers, and Isabela even at a young age would assist her mother in keeping up the charade. Isabela as an adult would continue to make use of subterfuge and deception to get what she wants: in DA2 she had Hawke pretend to betray her in order to lure out an old enemy of hers and played her role of betrayed companion very well. In the comic tie ins she helped Alistair and Varric infiltrate several pretty highly secured places in Antiva and the Qunari lands through trickery and bluffing through their opposition. Most frustratingly, in Act 2 of DA2 it’ll be revealed that Isabela assumed role as a loyal companion to trick Hawke into helping her retrieve her missing McGuffin and then completely bailed on Hawke with only a Dear John note to explain how she played them. Now if the player had developed a high friendship/rivalry with her she’ll come back to them, but it still proved that Isabela can manipulate and scam people as sharp and self-aware as Hawke and Varric.
  13. Rocky motivated Donnie to defeat Drago Jr, a heavyweight boxer who just wanted his mommies attention. Iroh motivated Korra to defeat Unalaq, the Dark Avatar bent on merging with a God of Evil and conquer the whole world! Rocky helped end the Cold War, Iroh helped end the Hundred Year War by mentoring key players like Aang and Zuko to let go of their insecurities and become the best versions of themselves. Iroh wins!
  14. So we’re picking which city we think is a less dangerous place to live in for a year right? Well as much of a fan I am of Stranger Things, I’d have to pick it to be the safer place to stay for a year. With Sunnydale having vampires, demons, and quite possibly the Devil himself fixed on it, and Derry having such delights like Pennywise and those creepy aliens from Dreamcatcher, Hawkins actually looks safer in comparison.
  15. Don’t worry buddy I’ll make sure to upload the scenes of Cass getting hit and proving she can be beaten to even out your clips: The second clip clearly shows Cass clipped in the chin by Nightwing and by the end it looks like Nightwing is just getting ready to get serious until Alfred arrives in the next scene to call it off. In the second scene we clearly see Jason has grabbed Cass by the throat and pushed her against the bar with his blades over her head! Sure looks like her reading ability did not help her there. And Jason made certain to let her know it! And since your a fan of statement feats, here’s a statement that let’s everyone know indefinitely that Dick himself truly believes that if he and Cass were to go all out then her body reading abilities won’t save her from getting a night stick up her ass! But like you said, we’re getting close to the end of this so I guess I’ll end it at here as well. It’s in your hands now dear CBUB voters. Please vote for Raphy!
  16. It’s a ubiquity knowledge because it appeared in ONE piece of media? So if I show you one Star Trek/X-Men crossover comic where Spock takes down Wolverine would that mean Spock is ubiquity superior to Wolverine?
  17. The same Raphael used in 2003? The same Batman from the comics? Or an entirely different set of Batman and Turtles that are entirely unrelated to this matchup?
  18. I know, I thought I had talked about that inconsistency in the first post where I mentioned the cranial injury. Look personally I’ve been of the mindset of Original source > comic tie in. Since the Shadow Broker files were part of the Mass Effect 2 game where Mordin first appeared I personally think it should be considered more “canon” then the story told in the comic. And while I do admit it doesn’t directly tell you what happened, you gotta admit it does imply that Mordin had to end up treating the wound on his own with very limited supplies or medicine around, why would Kirrahe tell him to go make to the Salarians main ship if they had equally good medical supplies on the ground? C’mon Peypey, really look at that scene of him saving Prometheus again. Are you really telling me that Hush found that blood bag filled with just the right blood type for Prometheus “lying around”? The scissors, the tweezers, the scalpel, the ice packs, the shots, the medicine he put into the shots, and all the stitches and bandages he used to wrap up Prometheus? Hush found all of those things just “lying around” in what looks to be some sort of hotel room? Just admit that that was clearly a pre-planned, pre-supplied, classic surgery that a typical surgeon like Hush had already set up before he began the operation. Was it impressive for one man to do it without the typical staff and supplies found at a hospital, sure, but it’s not what one would usually classify as a 127 hours self-care scenario. And the reason I keep bringing up that Mordin feat was because it was exactly like what the scenario described: a life-or-death situation with primate medical tools. A krogan (who on average are as strong as Captain America) slashed him across the head hard enough to take off a body part (for a human it would be the equivalent of someone slashing off your ear) so think I think we can conclude it was a pretty severe and life threatening injury. And again it was heavily implied that in that version of the story Mordin stayed in the field and treated the life threatening injury himself! So again in Hush’s beat feat was him treating another man in a pre-planned and pre-supplies room in a place he was clearly comfortable with. Mordin had to treat his own injury, a slash across the head by something with super-soldier strength, in the middle of enemy territory, with only the supplies that a usual special forces member would bring with him on a mission. Which scenario really resembles the 127 hours scenario better? I also looked up the other feats you mentioned, and you made some other misleading statements yourself: we never actually saw Hush perform the self-heart surgery, for all we know he had some help doing it.
  19. So your denying that he had to bench at least half of that weight for himself? In one breath are you saying that if me and you together managed to carry a 400 pound refrigerator that we would be weaker then a guy who can only bench 90 pounds because we didn’t do it alone? WTF kind of logic is that? As I keep repeating Raph had to carry at least half of that weight, which is at least 40 or 50 tons of stone. Has Cass ever proven she can bench 20 or 25 tons of weight? If not then she’s physically weaker then Raph! So it’s confirmed that Raph is physically much stronger then her! It is inferior if it leaves crippled and unready for this fight because she’s had it drilled into her head since birth to do whatever it takes to win a fight, and it won’t be so easy for her to turn on the “no cheap shots” switch in her brain if she’s fighting an opponent whose skills and fighting abilities would give her trouble on her best days! Great! Then name me one fight where she fought an opponent who was stronger and heavier then her that she didn’t use ANY type of cheap shots, joint attacks, throat shots, or ANYTHING that would be illegal in a UFC fight to win. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Dude don’t be a troll. You know damn well that Cass can and will be tagged by Raphael, she’s been tagged by Ravager and Nightwing before and both their speeds are equal to Raphs. So stop saying that her body reading ability automatically means she can’t be touched! She’s a badass but she’s still just a human being and she’s gonna take as much hits from Raph as she’s gonna give. Only difference is that Raph’s hits are gonna rattle her much more then her hits are gonna rattle him.
  20. I personally believe that this is a great match and an amazingly written one at that. Good job Movie-Brat! Utrom Shredder was certainly a beast, he’s stood mano y mano against Splinter, Leo, Raph, and the other Turtles several times throughout the series and he’s actually had more wins then loses against them if you add them all together. So while I think a matchup between him and Shang-Chi would be very close and honestly could go either way on any given day, I think ultimately Shang-Chi would take this due to being a more disciplined, determination, and greater physicals when scaled to who he’s fought against. @RakaiThwei why do you think Tengu Shredder would be a better matchup? Tengu is a reality warper whose strength and magic is clearly superhuman, while Shang-Chi is more of a street level character.
  21. Well here’s the thing about Dwight, even if he lands in the area of Eternia where He-Man and the forces of good reside, that area of Eternia is still under constant attack by Skeletor and his forces of darkness so Dwight might find himself being attacked by the evils of Eternia either way. So the real question is whether you believe Dwight could survive even one encounter with the standard dangerous creature encountered in Eternia.
  22. I did. You might not have said it definitely wasn’t hockey, but you worded it like I was a fool to have assumed that it could have been a hockey game. Even though again, the picture next to the category is clearly intending to bring the image of a Mighty Ducks esque scenario to mind. Look I don’t have much of a stake in this matchup, so I don’t even know why we’re going back and forth.
  23. Yeah better training in a controlled environment, where all the tools, equipment, and medicine he requires would be prepared ahead of time for him. Mordin’s feat would be far more relevant to an 127 type scenario because one would really not access to anything close to the supplies that surgeons like Hush would use during their operations. Mordin is a field medic, his whole training revolves around being able to treat wounds out in the field without the supplies, medicine, or warnings and prep time that one would have in a hospital funded surgery. That’s what makes his loss cranial feat better then Hush’s, Mordin’s happened in the field, with only the barest of tools and medicine, and Mordin had clearly not had the time to prepare for it. Has Hush ever done any of his medical feats out in the open in anything resembling an 127 hour scenario: e.i. outside, with no tools or medicine already prepared for him, and without hours to prepare for the challenge? Because Mordin has.
  24. So training to stand still as your being shot and cut counts as “superior training”? If anything that sort of training actually makes you weaker, not stronger. I had family members who served as Marines who told me some enlightening truths about “pain tolerance” training, specifically the ones used by their Russian equivalents. They used to tell me how part the reason why Russian operations and engagements generally lead to greater casualties and failures then the US was because the “pain tolerance” training just doesn’t work, it makes someone so numb and uncaring to the pain that they stop caring about trying to stay alive to complete the ops. They would half jokingly say that the Russians train their troops to embrace pain and dying and that the Marines train to avoid pain and dying. When I said Raph and Cass’s training was similar, I meant in similar martial arts and fighting styles. Your right that the methods were different, but if anything their worse for Cassandra then Raphael. And dude how many times do I have to show you the feat of Raphy squatting a giant stone pillar? Even if Raph only held up half of what must be at least 40 or 50 tons of stone that’s still far above anything a peak human like Cass has shown the ability to do. So yes that would in fact make him stronger and heavier then Cassandra. Here’s a point that you’ve yet to explain to me C.T., can Cass beat Raphael without ANY joint strikes, throat strikes, hits to the spine or back of the neck, no eye gouging of any kind, no downward pointing elbow strikes, and no groin attacks of ANY kind. Here’s another reason why her training with Daddy Cain would be inferior to Splinter’s training, most of the things David Cain taught her to do would be illegal under UFC rules! That’s again why in this scenario strength and weight advantages trump almost anything else. Plus Raph's personal style of combining wrestling moves like grappling and body slams would translate much better to fighting in the Octagon then Cassandra’s.
