@strider92: Secret Six bane gets it for me, with venom he breaks the back of a metahuman when fighting junior's goon on a bridge

but please tell me more about archer

@nerx: sure :)

Archer has an ability called Perception that allows him to utilize any skill he's learnt to fullest. How it actually works hasn't been fully explained yet. Its kind of a mixture between Taskmasters ability to copy skills and the ability to instantly master them after learning them:

Archer demonstrating Perception:

Perception also allows him to pinpoint nerves and weakspots. For example here he his a guard in the hand causing him to shoot his allies and in the other he focuses his attack into a deathblow:

He has incredibly quick reactions:

Thanks to his training he can actually hang with superhumans. Gilad is Armstrong's brother and has been alive and fighting for almost ten thousand years. Ontop of that he's a 5tonner:

This is what happened both times he went against Archer:

@strider92: seems like the combat oriented version of sylar's 'intuitive aptitude'

5 tonner might be a bit much though, altough with venom bane is above that

@nerx: Actually I think you've hit the nail on the head there. It is a lot like Sylars intuitive aptitude. Except Archer just has to watch it not cut open someones brain and look at it lol!

@strider92:

A while ago I made the same theory with Wesley Gibson from wanted, since he know how to kill things which are normally deemed hard to kill.

What is archer's standard gear?

#8 Posted by Strider92 (16605 posts) - - Show Bio

@nerx: I always thought of Wesley's power as more of just knowing weak-spots kind of like that guy from the Inhumans.

Ermmm normally its a crossbow and maybe a few knives.

#9 Posted by Nerx (15088 posts) - - Show Bio

@strider92: that and knowing exactly what to kill them with, or making mundane objects capable of killing strong things

crossbows, sometimes bane carries guns (he likes his gatling)

knives are problematic, are they for throwing and slashing or merely striking?

I thought Wesley used Nuclear bullets or something of the like, that's why he could kill Super powered individuals

@dondave: Nah he had ordinary bullets but had the power to "End Life" basically he instinctively knew how to kill whoever he fought.

#14 Posted by Nerx (15088 posts) - - Show Bio

@dondave: nuclear , bullets, moon shoes, spider shoes

but he seems to know at an instinct what can kill what or that he can suddenly wing six flies at once

#15 Posted by Strider92 (16605 posts) - - Show Bio

@nerx: He really had nuclear bullets? O.O I don't remember that.

judging by the scans Archer.

@strider92: sucker bragging over his newly acquired fuckwit power that nothing less than a 'nuclear bullet' would work, cue wesley and fox laughing at him for being a retard and saying "time's up f_cker'

cue sucker falling to his death

he knows by instinct when and how to kill things

I also made a comment on a wesley vs a rose tattoo thread that their kid would be scary
