right, i know this has been bugging a lot of people lately, so can we actually iron out some rules for the battle forums please?
the main problem i've come across is people using information about characters not found in the comics if they want a specific character to win, but then denying the same 'outside' information if they want another character to loose.
mainly i have spotted this problem in the battle threads where the characters are either video game characters as well as comic characters, or movies / tv shows.
the main question is, do we allow outside information from games / movies / tv shows to be used as 'canon' information when there is absolutely no basis for these 'powers' in the comics?
say we start a battle, Sub Zero Vs Superman.
now, in the latest Mortal Kombat game, Sub Zero is basically a God... do we allow that as 'canon' as disregard everything learned about Sub Zero in the comics as a 'mortal man'?
the same goes for Superman... if we allow Sub Zero the 'outside' powers, the same must be allowed to him, so any powers that Superman has shown in any of the movies, TV shows, games... whatever...
so he has time travel, molecular control, faster than light speeds / reflexes... where does it stop?
So i ask this to the entire forum to set up as a standard rule.
Do we allow non-comic information to be used as 'canon' information?
