I like how Shocker here is the only one to actually do anything against these two, he actually takes Cage, a man with unbreakable skin, out of the fight for a short moment.
5 wives will do that to you.
I'm not sure what is worse the overuse or that more than half the time the other guy survives it.
Those cuffs seals her godhood and thus weakening her. Removal of them meant that she has access to her godhood and the boost that it provides. It is like placing a Kryptonian in the presence of a yellow sun instead of a red sun.
It means that playtime is over and you are about to get fucked up.
The badass here isn't Karnak. It's Coulson for stopping a guy that he just saw break a leg with two fingers.
Now, don't get too depressed. It's got the same premise of a "Slayer" fighting vampires and demons, but it's set in a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk hellhole and I don't think Buffy's even in it or mentioned by name at all. Plus it's essentially got The Cremator from Lady Death as the coolest uncle ever.
>Can attest, read it in high school
I can attest they were decent in my 30s - but now that you mention it if I'd been in high school I'd've been blown away.
...there are people in high school with stuff like Prophet as their Golden Age stuff. What a world.
Anyone have any idea what tune this is sung in? I tried a bunch of different military tunes including the song about white dudes marching from American History X and I can't find one that fits
I'm not to up on Johnny's nova form. Should he have been able to survive this. He got knocked out but basically no harm done.
>not counting Uncanny Avengers
I've been doing that for Scarlet Spider. The Kaine one that Yost wrote.
I call it The Scarlet Shitter.
>stopped a celestial's foot
>gets eaten by a giant worm
I think Remender realized that he went over the top but couldn't make up a decent way to put him down, hence that stupid shit.
Noteworthy, that after Thor kills Exitar, Sentry casually informs Janet that he feels Exitar's soul entering White Hot Room. I don't even know what levels are those anymore I mean this is cosmic awareness far beyond Surfer.
I always thought Sentry was like:
> "Haha, that was actually pretty well-done, Janet. Think I'll let you have this one."
Seriously, though. The best way to have the Sentry stick around - After his original mini and his return - was simply to give him a really weakened version of Superman's powers. He's an old guy whose costume seems faintly ridiculous now (the golden years are behind him) but he's happy that he's not crazy, that he finally understands what he is.
He doesn't even need to take part in any fights or anything. The Marvel Universe doesn't need another Superman analogue. Just have him be Bob, a guy who used to be Superman - But is now outstripped by the new wonders, and is happy to just watch them from the sidelines.
As an aside, I've always thought that if Alan Moore's Miracleman ever discovered the Marvel Universe, he'd think it was Paradise. (Which is why I was vaguely pissed they brought in Angela instead. Who the hell is Angela?)
some thor wanking shit.
You can tell that it's wanking because apocalypse never attacks thor.
yes, bjarnbjorn can cut celestial metal, but that only means that both can hurt each other.
Bu the writer doesn't care, , he just wants to show thor beating up people.
The rest is even worse. Ha ha, he's easily beating people much weaker than him, that's so badass.
yep. Most of those who posted here have no idea what is badass, and just posted muscleguys they like who got mad and beat up weaker guys.
But there's nothing badass about that. Even the most pathetic guys alive could beat up weaker people if they are angry.
Now, knowingly going against someone stronger than you, going in a situation where you can die, that is badass.
What you posted is badass,
this is badass.
most other posts are just wanking.
the setry has superman powers. Bob reynolds is a powerful reality warper, and his sentry persona is just him imagining himself as the best superhero.
So his power as the Sentry is only limited by his imagination and motivation. I guess that could explain the inconsistencies in his performance.
>"Haha, that was actually pretty well-done, Janet. Think I'll let you have this one."
I'd like that actually and it would go with "I enjoyed being an Avenger today" that came later.
I'd welcome Sentry becoming some crazy-ass space being, he could appear in "Ultimates" sometimes or have his own mini like Surfer had. People would like non-pc-ridden cosmic adventure I think.
female predator does what 2 male predators coudn't.
she killed batman
also magneto, etrigan, cyclops, wolverine and some others
well this is just dumb. ok, she can phase. But what exact element of her powers makes her unphasing indestructable? Can she destroy Wolverines adamantium that way? Why isn't SHE the one that gets fucked up from phasing into an object?
I could have sworn unphasing in an object did cause her problems at one point but kitty has been getting the waifu power creep for like twenty years. iirc adamantium is kinda hard for her to phase through for some reason or another.
>iirc adamantium is kinda hard for her to phase through for some reason or another
I think the denser the material is, the harder it gets. But you're right about the waifu power creep
in a what if story where wolverine kills the marvel universe.
she is the last one surviving and takes him down by phasing her hand in his head and it stays there because he cuts her hand off
a dream hulk has in planet hulk.
80s luke cage used to be fun.
for example doom hired him for something but didn't pay him.
luke travels all the way back to latvaria, setting up riots in the city just to break into dooms castle and demand his money
matter eating lad showing he ain't taking shit
And when did this happen? Judging from the art style, those pages can't be that old, but I never seem to remember her being an interesting character, even back as a little kid.
Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Pretty much ever since Carol became Captain Marvel (2012), they've been working hard to make her badassery as safe and palatable as possible, removing the harder, bloodier edge she had prior to that. She also had a brain reset to essentialy work with a clean slate and never bring up the darker moments of her past ever again.
>Her fight with moonstone was pretty cool too.
Cold as shit.
Why would they do that? I thought they wanted to make her a marquee character. Did they decide to make her a pre-teen role model instead?
Are these all from the same author? Cause I don't remember her being so badass in the 80s-90s.
What definition of badass are we going for here? Someone with the power to break mountains... beat a skilled human being. Yes, Batman might arguably be the most skilled human being but that doesn't mean he has super-toughness.
Have Bat-wankers gotten so loud that people have forgotten this?
>Did they decide to make her a pre-teen role model instead?
You nailed it on the head with the role model thing. That's what they wanted.
>Are these all from the same author?
Brian Reed, yes.
nobody cared or like carol danvers.
Now anons are acting like she was some interesting fan favorite in the past as a way to complain about the current run that in their opinion is some kind of SJW attempt to take over their hobby.
>nobody cared or like carol danvers.
I did, so kindly go be a faggot somewhere else.
But it isn't.
For one thing, both strands are connected to the rock and him. If he let go, they'd just zip to the rock.
That's ignoring the second thing, spider webbing isn't super snap-backy like that, or he wouldn't swing, he'd just be sent rocketing into the air. But he swings.
How do two separated strands of webbing become a slingshot?
its been shown to be elastic to some point.
he weights 150-190lbs. not enough to, stretch it out.
he can lift 3 tons, enough to stretch it. But then, yeah, cars and shit, should be flipping around, etc.
He has different batches of webbing which he keeps in his belt/webshooters. Some sticky, some stretchy, some for tensile strength
Sentry is a great last resort plot device.
Something seems impossible, so the writers send the Deus ex Sentry to show up, fuck some shit up and then leave.
He's not really a character he's a writing mechanism.
Is what you're thinking of?
wolverine as the horseman death?
thats just celestial tech not actual death powers
because horseman war hulk nearly killed juggernaut, until rick jones managed to stop him.
Hey anon, fuck off, Carol was badass under Reed's pen, it's just s shame that skull replaced her when KDS took over. Newfags, not know about Brian Reed's Ms Marvel, I fucking swear man.
Also, Reed was able to do Carolverse without it sucking as much as Spider-Verse did
>Who the hell is Angela?
You mean this one?
The one that Gaiman snatched from Mcfarlane? I know Gaiman is writing Miracleman for Marvel right now.
The point is the Axis reversal causes Thor to be an angry brooding bully who has no qualms about beating the shit out of things.
Or do you forget Thor is one of the strongest Powers of the Marvel universe for a reason?
Something like this
40k comics are great
Look at him. He knows he's about to die. He knows he isn't accomplishing anything.
But he's going to do his goddamn job anyway
He's floating around and maybe I went too far with "never", but I think they'll fight over Gauntlet Hal not killing Sinestro.
Although it would be hilarious if Hals blitzkrieg Sinestro Corps and Pale Priests or what their name is.
Read anything from Danny's run on Ghost Rider. It doesn't matter if someone doesn't care, it will hurt them. Noble Kale forgot about some murder that happened in the 1400's and the Penance Star that Vengeance used on him fucked him up big time because of it even though he had no knowledge of it.
Well that GR Frank is dealing with is Johnny Blaze, and according to volume 6, that's how it went in that and this instance. I reiterate again, I still think it's bullshit, but that's comics.
Can you disarm bombs by dancing?
I didn't think so
>She's follows him because she's one of the few or the only chaos mite left, while Thanos causes chaos everywhere he goes.
You know, I always really liked Skreet, I liked the concept, I liked her powers or rather, lack thereof, I even liked that her last sighting was with Cammy heading off to do 'stuff.'
And then Avengers Academy happened, and Hopeless fucked everything sideways.
Fucking hack. Die of brain herpes, you wretched fuck.
Has there been any recent Skreet sightings? Although, given the useless turds they have writing the floppies these days, I'd rather she stays safe in disuse until Marvel decides to get talent on the books again.
He's a guy from Titan who has Deviant Syndrome, which is why he has the skrull chin. He loves Death. Like, the actual universal force. But Death doesn't love him back.
So he does a lot of stupid shit trying to get her to love him
Sometimes. More or less.
He went to the trouble of gaining omnipotence just to woo her and he's pretty powerful in his own right. The guy hasn't got much else to do with his time and energy
feminists get one for themselves
i know its literature or film, but still, jadis is about as badass as you can get, across all universes
Age of the Sentry was fun.
Reminder that particular Sentry is showing up again this week in Contest of Champions. Then again he's getting involved in regular Bob's Siege splatterhouse drama fighting a resurrected Ares.
I like this one from Secret Wars
Spoilers because I thought Inhumans Attilan Rising was alright
But his son is a serial killer working for the suicide squad. What the fuck is he doing there?
>MM will never mind break you into a horny slut that's addicted to the 50 tentacocks he can create
A bunch of teenage super humans and mutants are put in a battle royal/hunger games type scenario.
This was before the games officially started and no one takes Arcade(or w.e. his name is) seriously.
Mettle is the first one to get in his face and Arcade pops him right there
Then they all realize shit got real
I never finished it so I don't know how it ends.
Apocalypse is shit. Without his armor he is worse than shit. Only reason Apocalypse is remotely a threat is because the X-men are faggots that just can't getting themselves killed or mindraped. Without his Celestial Armor, Apocalypse would barely be even Luke Cage tier. Remember how he was taken out and enslave by primitive weapons such as ordinary sticks, swords and spears in an era where he was basically the only superhuman?
no not really he never saw it coming. i haven't read the comic but from the context of the picture all she is doing is escalating assault to murder. any asshole with the drop on someone and a gun can kill that is far from badass
>thinking kitty hasn't punched a god
I don't think you understand how bad the waifuism is
In case nobody has said it to you yet, there was an utterly terrible arc of Captain Marvel's past where this unbelievably creepy bastard decided to take Carol as his mind controlled wife and have her give birth to like, himself via rape baby or some bullshit and she stayed with him for years, IIRC. Much like Ant-Man accidentally hitting Wasp, it was a moment that kind of stuck with the character.
Still dumb to mindwipe all that history for one unbelievably foul moment, though.
I mean I'm not really a big Ms. Marvel fan but heck, catching up on this again is making me angry.
Apparently the gist of it is:
>Guy wants to fug Ms. Marvel
>Impregnates her with himself, somehow
>Gives birth to him and he grows into a handsome full-grown man
>Uses mind control machines to make Carol fall madly in love with him
>She 'willingly' goes with him
>Avengers are like gee alright
Granted I'm reading an article and it's possible there's a tint considering I'm not reading the actual comic myself, but this actually genuinely sounds like the result of an insane fetishist waifufag pushing his deranged fantasy and the editor saying "alright"
Because (former)Ms.Marvel looking like some butch dyke is apparently a politically correct upgrade from at least having some sort of sex appeal.
You know, I always have to laugh at the fact that SJWs seem to always get fucking pissed whenever fictional women dress skimpily, but seem to also get pissed whenever "slut-shaming" occurs to women who dress like prostitutes and are pissed whenever people assume some scantily-clad woman is a whore due to her choice of clothing.
Man, no double standards at all...
