What's your favorite display of super powers in a super hero movie, /co/?
Ya know, honestly while it wasn't one of the best and it wasn't supposed to show his power in a positive light. In x-men one when toad pulls off cyclops' visor and he just tears a hole in the cieling, that still strikes me as a good sudden example of his destructive force and was just really amazing to see in a movie the fiest time.
While it was honestly very static disregarding the chaotic effects, I really came to love how they handled Pete and the Infinity Stone by the end of the GotG movie.
The way it took hold of his body, but then you got to see things from his perspective as he saw into infinity. And everything looked fine. And then it abruptly cut back to how it looked from the outside and he really was breaking apart all while he stood straight just the same.
It was a really neat way to showcase the stones, or so I think.
My favorite single use was from Dofp when pink opens a portal and then in one shot, colossus jumps through it and then falls onto a sentinel.
My favorite scene was probably Nightcrawlers opening scene in X2
There are a couple problems I had with that scene.
It's the 70's right? Those headphones are not the least bit reminiscent of the 70's, and those ski goggles are exactly the same as a pair I bought from 7-11 maybe 8 years ago.
I did love that scene for the fact that it showed everything from the perspective of having that super speed, the music was a bit funny for that scene.
I watched Scott Pilgrim last night and it had the most impressive action sequences I'd seen in comic book movie. The choreography, visual effects, sound design, editing, composition, camera work and humour they all had worked so good. I think maybe the only weak one was the electro vs garage rock light show. At one point it devolved into blurry lights and it was hard to make out what was happening with the dragon and yeti things
Love me some Edgar Wright.
Either Cap using his shield in the films, really makes a thrown shield seem cool.
Or Nightcrawler's scene in X2. Made me appreciate teleportation as a power a lot more.
People might love Quicksilver in DoFP, but that scene was nothing we hadn't seen speedy characters do 1000 times before.
Pretty much all of the fight scenes (and the first flight scene) in Man of Steel, especially the Smallville fight.
And, since I haven't seen Days of Future Past yet, I quite liked how The Flash's powers were shown in the leaked pilot, at least for a TV show budget.
Maybe Erik's bar scene during the Nazi hunting part of 1st Class, or maybe him lifting the stadium. In fact, Magneto just has the most badass power scenes
Oh, and if Iron Man counts, probably his first scene in the middle east as the modern IM suit
Magneto was just too fucking OP in DofP, I mean, that scene where, despite never being said to have any mechanical/computer knowledge, reprograms highly advanced robots with pieces of a train track really annoyed me.
Eye volcanoes anon. Eye volcanoes.
Cap in Winter Soldier.
Now THAT was the Cap. Parkour, shield bounces, taking out dudes as he's running around even a fucking helijet thing.
>mfw "Does anyone want to get out?"
That very scene. WHIP-LASH
only thing I didn't like about quicksilver's scene is that it made him far too overpowered (by movie standards, at least)
with a guy to whom bullets look absurdly slow, it would've been nearly impossible to use him in any actual fight because nobody could even remotely touch him
Whedon just fucked up. Though I tell myself at night that Cap just got out of cryo sleep for years and got thrown into an Alien invasion.
With Winter Soldier taking two years after, he has more time to settle in and get ass kicking once more.
I swear to god if he's back to Avengers 1 Cap in AoU.
Uh.. no? It just shows it speeding up. And it goes past two or three stations before hittin dead end, so it's a normal track.
Ock just sped it up. It's a dead end track because movie.
I disagree, especially on the action scenes. Aside from the final fight in Revolutions and the Juno Reactor highway chase I didn't feel a single bit of tension or involvement in any of the action.
Has elasticity ever been done well in a movie? Not really counting something animated like Incredibles.
I'm not saying that the sequels are that good (but I kinda liked them), just that the first is just as bad, but I haven't watched it when it came out, so maybe it was better for it's time
makes sense, but the original script wasn't what we got to watch
Um, yeah. That's the thing about Super Speed, it's a lot more OP than most of the flashy powers. You don't need laser beams and shit when you can run up and punch them in the face in the time for them to say "Holy shit, how'd he get here?!"
It's not tha overpowered if they aren't that fast. The kid from The Incredibles had the perfect balance, Quicksilver was impossible fast.
Handgun bullets can travel more than 370m/s and they were in slow motion to him. This is absurdly fast.
Psychic powers. But yeah other than than super-speed is pretty powerful. Even if you don't win you could just run away with ease.
I wonder how/if the Sentinels killed Quicksilver in DoFP.
I thought that was weird.. He could've just webbed the truck, pulled the driver out, web pulled the cars outta the way.. Anything.
But the rest of the movie that wasn't about the parents was fun, so i'll let it slide.
If MoS was actually good anywhere, i would probably let bullshit in that slide too. But the whole thing was uncharacteristic.
Say what you will about the movie as a whole, the final fight was beautiful, it had none of the grace of the first movie but it was damn impressive.
He didn't, it does appear modern cap now does though.
>Train scene in Spiderman 2
>Almost all of the Winter Soldier
>Highschool fight in The Amazing Spiderman

>Thor picking up his hammer and getting struck by lighting to regain his powers
>Loki faking his betrayal and the resulting fight with Thor against the juggernaut dude
>Faora & Nam'ek vs. Superman

The few times that Thor does something grand, calls lighting from top of the empire state building, rams into shield at full speed etc.
Just the sound of mjolnir gives me a boner, it's perfect.
I liked Nightcrawler's scene. And then anything Azreal did in first class was great. I loved the scene of him just teleporting people up and dropping them from the sky.
Man I was always a sucker for the Silver Surfer scenes in the Fantastic Four. Not really because it was a good display of his power or anything. But I just loooved his character design in that film. Too bad that it was garbage.
Helped that he was also voiced by Lawrence Fishburne.
The way Mjolnir exits the lighting and hits the Destroyer to knock its aim off course makes one think that we are in for one hell of a fight.
Then, Mjolnir returns and bitch-slaps the Destroyer into the ground, and you realize that there will be no fight, but a one-sided slaughter.
Some have criticized it for downplaying the power of the Destroyer, but the entire scene oozes of power in a way that is rarely seen.
Does anyone have a webm of it?
in the first issue of brubaker's cap run he knocks some terrorist's off of a moving train. yes in some avengers runs he has a no killing rule. but this is retarded for a super SOLDIER to have
the plane scene in superman returns has always bothered me because holy SHIT if you have that much EXTREME force on two SMALL AS FUCK spots on the surface, you would just puncture the goddamn hull. should've been him lifting the fucking thing with his back.
God, I loved that whole final scene
>Ronan literally seconds away from winning
>desperate, suicidal last gamble
>it works because of the MOTHERFUCKING POWER OF FRIENDSHIP
>Superman's powers ignore laws of physics
STOP THE PRESSES
That was pretty neat. Plus a nice callback to that one dropped hint of how the Gem was too much for any *one* person to handle. Because the Guardians aren't one person - they're a team of friends.
go rewatch incredible hulk, anon.
remember that part where blonsky gets chest kicked by hulk and then heals from it instead of being a retarded meat blob the rest of his life thanks to the super soldier serum that they were experimenting on him with that was BASED on the serum cap was given?
there's some background for you on what the real deal serum probably can do if the knockoff incomplete one could do that.
This is still the best, most emotionally charged superhero fight ever. Maybe not the best display of superpowers but Neo, at least to me, felt more like a superhero than anyone else in this thread.
I just watched IM for the second time the other day. I really enjoyed the attention put into the suit, they knew it was the draw of the movie. Watching him build it and that long first full suit up sequence.
Its a much different feeling from Avengers and Iron Man 3 when I think audiences started attending for RDJ and not the suit.
>agents don't have perfect aim
I get that there are rules and shit (hence no unlimited ammo or deagles that shoot missiles) but perfect aim seems like something pretty easily done.
It is all a computer program, why can't the robots just turn the floor into lava? Or just change the variable that says neo is alive? Or even the concentration of oxygen in the area?
I assume that Agents are restricted by the body they're hijacking. Basically they can push them to the their extreme limits, but can't exceed any pre-existing limits. It'd also explain why they just don't bullet time it all the time.
DoFP does so much right that people tend to forget how fucking stupid most of it is.
>the scene you just mentioned
>"because he was one of us."
>"a mutant just pulled a stadium off the ground and cut off access to the White House, reprogrammed super weapons and voiced an intent to replace humanity, but a *different* mutant decided NOT to kill the president so they are clearly much less of a threat than we thought!"
The last one really sticks out in my mind because it is so unforgivably stupid.
more like "a different mutant pretended to be the president and showed that we have mutant allies as well as enemies and thus should not condemn mutant kind as a whole as dangerous enemies to humanity"
Ellen Brandt gave me a bit of a boner
Dat voice sure helped, despite the facial scars
would've been nice to have more pre-"I am Iron Man" endeavors like that Iron Man vs Terrorists scene, where a metal suit coming out of nowhere to dish out justice wasn't an actual concern/to be expected by people.
Nope, one uniform piece of steel alloyed with "all the vibranium known to exist on Earth". In the comics it's vibranium, steel, and "we all fell asleep so we have no damn clue what else got in".
A sequel is being made. Unfortunately, it looks like it will be terrible because the studio doesn't want to continue the story. They basically want to tell the same story again but with different kids this time.
While that scene looked really great, I didn't like how completely overpowered it made him.
He's literally a god in that universe, how breaking in somewhere possibly be even a remote challenge?
>hearing Magneto's power sound effects at the cinema
The entire movie is retarded.
>Oh hey Max, let me help you up in the middle of this life-threatening situation
>I'LL KILL YOU SPIDERMAN
>Spiderman, give me your blood
>I dunno, bad things could happen. Sorry.
>Well I went around you and did it anywaYOHGOD BAD THINGS HAPPENED. I'LL GET YOU FOR THIS SPIDERMAN
>what do I love about being spiderman
This is the kind of fighting I want to see in Cap 3.
This is super soldier level shit right here.
my face when the guy played twinkle twinkle little star on the buildings
i still can't believe that actually happened
You're joking, right? The movie was a snoozefest that went on for far too long with way too little actual Godzilla. I mean they cokteased us twice only to not show the actual fight that Godzilla had.
its almost to good to be real
perfect filenames here
Don't feel bad.
Wolverine wrecking shit is exactly what made him popular in the first place. It's damn cool.
It's the people who hate the shit out of him because he's more popular than their favourite characters who should feel bad.
>Hulk vs Pre-ABom Blonsky
God, Blonsky was so fucking awesome in Hulk, favourite MCU villain by far. Him doing all that super soldier shit against made me so hype for Captain America. I hope Abomination comes back in future movies, him vs Hulk was awesome, just two insanely powerful dudes kicking the shit out of each other.
Speaking of, what does /co/ think of Incredible Hulk, I never see it brought up around here, but its one of my favourite MCU films.
I remember when I was watching it there was a shot of norton on an operating table and you were looking at the soles of his feet and the lighting was just right to where it looked like he had four toes, and I actually googled "edward norton four toes"
I actually loved how they played up Cap's actual superpowers post-Avengers. The shit with him throwing himself out of buildings and using the shield to absorb the impact.
I did have a nerd moment when a grenade explosion flung him away with the shield because that goes totally counter to everything else he did but ehhh.
For real, no good Godzilla movie ever spent the whole time just riding Godzilla's dick around. The very best spent about two thirds of their runtime on aliens broadcasting their demands, sympathetic telepaths, generals and scientists waxing poetic, disco music videos, and a crazy botanist splicing monster DNA and his daughter's menarche into roses.
people hyped that scene up so much, that when i finally saw it, i was let down. its a visually more impressive feat than shit weve seen in kamen rider kabuto, without all the asskicking that would come with it
Nah, super speed, Quicksilver's abilities includes the physicality to withstand the forces of the speed, it wasn't shown since next to nothing can hit him but he's actually insanely durable, so the impact forces of punching shit at that speed doesn't affect him, of all the X-men in there only Xavier could have taken him down, if he can even fuck with his mind since it's operating at a higher speed or some shit
You have any idea how broken someone would be if they had
>the strength of an Olympic lifter
>the speed of an Olympic sprinter
>the stamina of a marathon runner
the would practically BE superhuman.
Nicolas Cage is hit or miss for me, but he really carried Kick-Ass whenever he was on screen.
I don't know what happened in the comic but they really should have had him go out in a more interesting way than what they did. A really big waste of the character.

but that scene you just showed doesnt have magneto busting himself out. mystique injected that guy with plot convenience.

>That cinematic graduation speech that sounds like a 40 year old wrote it
>LOOK WE'RE USING THE THEME SONG LIKE RAIMI, LOOK HOW WE DID IT
>Stan Lee cameo is just... there.
...So why do people like this movie again?
It may not have been quite as impressive as the things we have seen later, but it was the first we saw of the First Avenger in action.
It made an impression, that is for certain.
earlier in the movie(CA2), cap's shield was blue and white/silver, after the pirate scenes it was back to its original colors, what happened?was it just repainted because of reasons?
I've got a few, but these two stick out in my mind immediately:
Most crowd-pleasing scene in superhero films in the last several years.
>the laugh and music when he starts running across the water
>tail lights up
no way it's gonna happen
>it goes up his back
no fucking way it's gonna happen
Also, I like how much the Kryptonians clearly did not give a fuck about bullets. It's a great touch that Faora and Ursa are clearly bored until Captain Badass takes out his knife.
Has anyone mentioned Colossus cameo in X2? I can't remember ever being that excited for a cameo ever in a movie.
It's a shame that these superheroes don't toss more unnamed heroes into their movies for a few seconds to give comic readers a taste.
I understand small scenes like that cost money for CGI and things like that, but that scene was worth it. It's probably one of my most memorable. Maybe because I love Colossus, but even people who didn't know who he was were asking about him after that scene.
1. Colossus cameo
2. Zod/Supes heat vision
3. Superman vs. Faora and Namek
4. Hulk Smash
5. Cap chasing Bucky
I'll give an honorary mention to Spiderman's web slinging. I love the old movies. The new movies not so much..
But damn, do they know what they're doing with the physics of how he throws his weight around on those webs.
This thing bothers me, because before it goes into slow motion. They are clearly far slower than they are after it goes into slow motion. But nothing in the way the scene is set up suggests any reason for any of the participants slowing down, so it's kind of jarring.
If you go down to stunts and look at the assistant fifht coordinators they were on cap 2 kickass bourne ultimatum and tdkr
Watch the sequel have the more classic mouth full and people start asking "But why wasn't his breath that big in the first movie?????"
And other people will say "Because he just woke up and was tired, didn't you read that throw away line in the tie-in comic?"
When the real answer is the director thought it would look cooler.
Mark my words, there will be a dozen threads on /co/ with that exact exchange.
It might seem an odd choice, but I really liked the appearance of the Celestial in GoTG. Really got a feeling of POWER from it, you know?
Other than that, Superman's first flight in MoS, the fights in Winter Soldier and 'I'm always angry'.
Oh, and though the movie is pretty crappy, I really liked the tank throw in Hulk.
>This is the kind of fighting I want to see in Cap 3.
If we're talking about The Matrix Trilogy, I genuinely enjoyed the weird ass fight scenes in Reloaded. Everyone was gaudy, flamboyant, or otherwise eccentric as hell and I love that because that's totally how things would be if you gave a couple people the power to look and do basically whatever they wanted. Plus, the extended fight/chase scene with the twins was rad as all hell.
Because the X-Men movies have zero continuity worth keeping track of.
>X-Men 1: Hank McCoy shown as a human on a news screen
>X-Men 3: Hank McCoy is blue fuzzy Kelsey Grammer(great casting, by the way)
>X-Men: First Class: Hank gets blueified in the fucking 1960s
It's always surprises much important the whole graduation thing seems in US with all those speeches and elaborate costumes. Congratulations! You are probably not clinically retarded! Good job!
face removing ability
>man in a completely metal suit vs man who can control all metal
I absolutely adore this scene. They played up Sherlock as being this guy who was always 12 steps ahead of everyone and then Moriarty comes and its one step ahead of that. Have a climax where they both play mental chess and you have perfection.
>Any character having the "my name is..." moment
I like that they clearly thought out the mechanics of the difficulty one guy, even with ultra strength and magic antigravity flight powers, would have holding a fucking passenger jet.
Give them a sharp kitchen knife and then pretty much anybody in that universe is insta-dead. Even Xavier, his power does have to be focused and applied and he probably wouldn't have time to see it coming.
If they ever wanna make a good superman game this is how thy should do it. supermans invincible don't even give him a health bar but make even thing else super breakable make players figure out how to save everyone with out killing everyone
That's pretty much the one example of a movie villain with some overpowered weapon/power where you can't say 'well why doesn't he just..'.
He takes full fucking advantage at all times and it's hilarious.
I still haven't seen DoFP but that was weirdly one of my favourite things about First Class. I think that weird subsonic grinding noise is exactly what I always had in mind reading x-men comics... Either that or it was so appropriate that it's been inserted into my memory in all the appropriate places.
Because Shitzilla 2014 tried to be both an origin and a VS movie
It failed at both
Origin? Doesnt even revolve around Godzilla
VS? Doesnt even feature any monster action
>B-B-B-BUT YOU NEVER WATCHED ANY GODZILLA M-M-M-MOVIE IN YOUR LIFE
I've watched 27 Godzilla movies and I can write you a 20 page essay about how Amerizilla 2014 is a fucking abortion
>oh well better just not shoot at all and die without a fight
Even though its 1/10000000000000000, you could theoretically hipfire and hit some sniper trying to kill you from a kilometer away, even though you might as well just stand there and wait for him to shoot you
I love the devastator attacks in Prototype. What movies have similar moments?
I also love scenes where someone goes into a blind rage and starts wrecking shit on a huge scale. Basically anything resembling the Avatar State.
>tfw you realize he must have once not supported someone's neck
Some fucking wizard was in charge when making that scene somewhere. Writing, directing, CGI, somewhere along the line they did something. I had only seen Iron Man and Avengers by the time I saw IM3, I didn't care much for Stark, but holy shit, that fucking scene was so goddamn thrilling.
I don't know whats funnier , that cats face or that I pronounced gosh like Goofy's gawrsh in my head.
Either way I'm a giggling ball of hysterics now.
>Spidey vs Electro. Sure the movie was shit
>Electro playing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" on the tesla coils while he beats the shit out of Spider-Man
So fucking good. SO fucking good.
