Speed Level?

#1 Posted by BlackWind (5558 posts) - - Show Bio

@johnny_anonymous: @darthaznable: @oscuro: @bossmonster: Of course we know Blade has a measure of superhuman speed, but what point is it at exactly? He fights against vampires who are superhuman by default and usually manhandles them. And he also has plenty of feats of dodging gunfire, as well as legjt bullet timing and reacting after shots are fired, and even weaving through bullets in midair.

So bow fast would Blade be pegged? Personally I am not one to overrate his scrumble with the vampire Spider Man. Sure it is a good feat because he was blood lusted, but it isn't something to go crazy over.

Casual bullet timer should be the bare minimum, however, IMO.

we already saw him speed blitz deadpool and casually dodge his bullets. his speed is up there.

Going by this scan it looks like Blade back flipped over automatic gunfire without even looking.

Wolverine level more or less

@kgb725: Most likely a lot more. Blade has superhuman speed, Wolverine is very agile, but his speed ain't superhuman

@blackwind: It's kind of hard to quantify. I've seen scans where it looks like he is leaving after images from moving so fast. He clearly is a notch above most or all vampires, who I would say have at least low end superhuman speed. He has fought Spitfire who is a legit speedster. Dodged point blank gunshots. Blade can clearly move fast as sh-t, in my opinion faster than most or all street levelers that I can think of off the top of my head. Thoughts?

@oscuro: If I had to put a number on it, I'd say he moves fast enough to defeat other supersonic characters without much difficulty.

@blackwind: As long as they continue to give him some shine he should have a few nice additions to his feats list.

@blackwind: Even before he got bite, he could block bullets with his sword. Which might be more of a skill/reaction feat but still should be considered IMO. I'd put him near Gorgon honestly.

@darthaznable: gorgon is way too much...gorgon could block automatic gunfire from multiple individuals without sweating and make wolverine and elektra look stupid at the same time. dude is on something else. i'd love to see him fight dracula.

@trackz: Gorgon is kind of a god mode stu, what do you expect?

I never said he was exactly Gorgon.
