This fight already happened once in the comics. I don't remember all the details, but basically Slade was thrashing them around until Dinah used a distraction to get in close and slash the tendons in his legs or something. Slade then had a chance of either retreating or being screamed into Kingdom Come. He chose wisely. 
 
Now while that fight was filled with plot and all, he was only fighting Canary, Huntress and Lady Blackhawk. I don't know if he can handle the addition of four more members, especially Hawk and Dove.

You also have an avatar requesting battle forum mods huh? I wonder how many others have them.

Interesting and some good points. 
 
My major question would be: Did Gail Simone write that fight?

Morph, even YOU are sporting an avatar requesting battle forum mods now? What is going on? Why did no one inform me of this meme?

There was no formal invitation to begin with. Anyone who agrees with the request is free to use such an avatar.

Of course. Hence my "filled with plot" statement.

I thought as much. Well, assume the battle takes place as written by someone more balanced.

The need for more moderation in the battles forum.

I have a feeling it had something to do with the bumpings of the Wonder Woman vs Goku thread, the Vegito vs Superman thread, and some other DBZ threads as well as the incredulous and uncontrollable bias of MrBobDobalina causing flame wars.

@MrDirector786:  Really..instead of mods they should just put in an ignore function and be done with it.

I don't read non-comic book threads so I'm not wearing this for any of those reasons.
 
In other news, it's actually against the rules to make a non-comic book thread here. The rule has never been enforced so no one actually knows that. Hence, we need battle forum mods.

#17 Posted by FinalStar86 (8681 posts) - - Show Bio
@Dane:  Yeah but what exactly would be a non comic book character? A character who has never appeared in a comic book? Or a character that isn't regularly a comic book.  A lot of popular video games get comic book adaptations, manga is technically a comic book also so those DBZ and anime related threads would be allowed technically.

@FinalStar86: That's simply not true. Manga is Manga. They don't call them comics in Japan or anywhere else. Just being in print doesn't make it a comic. Also, there's a little site called "Anime Vice". There's literally a link at the bottom of the page most of the time. I don't think that excuses the fact that the battle forums can be flooded with Anime-related threads and not a single person does anything, ever, about it.
 
What is the point of having rules if they are never enforced?
#19 Posted by AtPhantom (14521 posts) - - Show Bio

Meh. Personally, some of the most enjoyable threads I've been in were non comics. I don't mind them, so long as they are made and debated with taste.

Their only different in name and style [like reading them backwards] their essentially the same thing, just like those cartoon strips in the Sunday paper are still technically comics.  
 
You're right about Animevice but as someone who's spent a considerable amount of time there, that place is a cesspool and I honestly don't blame anime fans that hop over here. I don't like the flood of anime related threads, especially with Goku vs Superman or some DBZ related crap. There is a link on the bottom of the screen for Giant Bomb too but we still get tons of video game character related threads also.
 
There is no point in having rules that are never enforced, I will agree with you on that

@FinalStar86: GiantBomb doesn't have a battle thread section if I recall correctly.

@FinalStar86: Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the occasional Video Game or Anime-themed thread, but we just have way too many and a lot don't involve any comic book characters at all. 
 
Goku vs Naruto should be on Anime Vice, regardless of the state that site is in and we are not short on those kind of threads by a long shot.

Agreed, I think one of the biggest problems with anime threads is that they always turn into Goku or some DBZ related character vs {insert} character.  Doesn't matter which characters are in the thread its going to end up like that

It's unfortunate and most of the time the Universes the characters come from are just too incompatible with each other and with DC/Marvel characters.

You don't need transparency to get the message across.
