Like does it always go defensive i guess, like has he ever gained an optic blast or something like that, or is he like always, adapting.

I think so far it has been defensive.

#3 Posted by pixelized (62882 posts) - - Show Bio

so never anything to defeat the situation, just survive through it.

i wonder what would happen if he were to fight gambit

I'm not sure. I don't think it's really possible for anyone to beat him. I think it would be funny if he fought Butterball.

no even when he fought with the Hulk instead of getting like super strength he teleported away given the nature of fight or flight it will probably be defensive

he has to have some breaking point..he can be defeated.

maybe not if his body developed teleportation to survive the Hulk then that is a sign his powers aren't limited to simply improving his own body but manipulating reality to keep him alive. In theory he could become as strong as well Galactus if there was nothing else he could do or move to a whole other reality if this was to be destroyed or even the past if all of the universe was ready to end

Maybe if he's surprised? Like if Wolverine cut his head off while he was asleep. Or I'm sure a reality warper could bring him down.

He came close to offensive in X-Factor 34. He was advancing on Talisman, but She Hulk robbed him of his opportunity. I believe he will show offensive capabilities in the future. After all, the best defense IS a good offense. What would happen if he fought Gambit? Well, Gambit certainly wouldn't win through raw power. He's far more experienced than Darwin though, I'm sure he could lure him into a trap and have him buried under rubble for a while, but that's about it.

I knew I saw him do something! Yeah he was trying to protect Monet, right? I think Darwin will eventually gain control and become a real superpower.

So.....isn't Lifeguard basically a female version (of a hustla) of him?

I guess although her power is focused on defending others and his defends himself.
