Bishop's power

#1 Posted by snootchie_bootchies (131 posts) - - Show Bio

So, hypothetically, could Bishop be able to absorb the energy or attack from a Green Lantern (or any derivation thereof) and be able to redirect it? How far does Bishop's power go?

I think it would depend the GL attack but I would think so ... Bishop was overpower by cyclops optic blast once but I can't remember how much power he used..

yet Bishop also once absorbed a full blast from Onslaught and shot it back at him. 
 
basically, Bishop is as powerful or as weak as any capricious writer wants him to be.

Well it says he can take energy and redirect it so I would suppose so, but what if the ring makes a giant hammer and hits him with it.  Could he absorb that energy and redirect it?  I don't think so but i don't know. The real ? is why all the interest in Bishop he blows and u know it.

Cyclops continuously shot energy at bishop until he overloaded
 
Imo Bishop could only absorb GL attacks if they shoot energy beams at him. If they make their constructs solid he stands no chance..........well he stood no chance anyways but y'know

Too true!  Of course, he's also as dead as the writers want him to be...  In other words, I expect we'll see him return in the next 12-24 months ;)

Bishops power depends entirely on the writer. Years ago there was one scene where he stood outside during light snowfall with the impact of the snow flakes slowly charging him up.

Bishop can absorb any attacks from a green lantern whether he make it solid or not. Every attack from their ring is raw energy and he will absorb it. It doesn't have to be a beam.
