Absorbing Man. Iceman has no way to hurt him. Absorbing Man at one point in time will absorb something that will hurt Iceman.

Unless he absorbs something that allows him to shut off Bobby's power, he technically can't hurt him either. I would assume in this battle that his materials are limited to mundane things.

Ice man,anything to do with water, air, temperature and pressure he can manipulate.
That's very powerful.

Absorbing Man Would need to Act Very fast, If his Body contains water. His reaction time will need to be faster than Bobby.

@nickthedevil: yeah he could stop him.

@thanobomb1124: AM usually has his chain and he can absorb that almost instantly. but bobby might have a chance.

By touch or by being Near Bobby?

@thanobomb1124: AM can absorb his steel chain instantly so there would be no water in his body. is that what you were asking?

Was asking if he can absorb Bobby's powers by touching him or just by being near him

Stalemate?

#15 Posted by Stronger (5051 posts) - - Show Bio

I think we have a stalemate here.

#16 Posted by pooty (13728 posts) - - Show Bio

@thanobomb1124: he would have to touch Bobby.

Although his ball and chain has the same capabilities he does, it was still made of normal material, and I have seen Bobby drop temps low enough to shatter metal with a flick of his fingers, when Polaris used said metal to cage him.

#18 Posted by HolySerpent (13360 posts) - - Show Bio

Iceman easy

#19 Posted by Lord Shiva (955 posts) - - Show Bio

Could go either way, probably Stalemate.

Good point i believe this is how it ends or he freezes his blood between changes

Pretty much.

Just because Absorbing Man is able to absorbing and become the material he touches. He is still 90 percent water- Iceman is an Omega Level Mutant- as powerful as Jean Grey. The only reason people expect Absorbing Man to win is because Bobby Drake is not quite as confident in himself; while Absorbing is overconfident. But if Iceman applied himself he would defeat Absorbing Man in seconds. Hell Absorbing Man, who is supposed to be on Thor's level of power was defeated by Daredevil when he tried to become diamond- but absorbing ended up getting cracked and Daredevil took him out using his own piece of broken diamond.

Does Absorbing Man have normal human durability until he absorbs something? Couldn't Iceman rip the moisture from his body before he can absorb anything?

#28 Posted by pooty (13728 posts) - - Show Bio

@Sobe Cin: @THUNDERBOLT30: Absorbing man can instantly absorb the steel from his chain or the ground beneath his feat. then there is no water to manipulate. It all depends on how fast bobbi tries to steal his moisture. I don't think that tactic is something he does off the rip. IMO

Gotcha. Thanks. Then, with morals off, couldn't he drop the temp to the degree that steel becomes brittle or freeze him solid if he became gravel?

@THUNDERBOLT30: As said Ice man can stop him. BFR him. but the title says "to death" which is not happening.

Can Absorbing Man absorbs power? Or can he only absorbs material properties?

Anyway, Iceman should have beaten him if the answer to the second question was yes.

He have absorbed cosmic cube prior to that feat.

Question: If Absorbing Man tries to absorb Bobby's ice, or generally replicate it, can't Bobby just control him like any other piece of ice, water, or snow? Break him into pieces and stop him from reforming?

And if so, how can Absorbing Man defend against that?

#39 Posted by Bones309 (1214 posts) - - Show Bio

Can either of these two be killed? Be it their "human" form or not.

The Absorbing Man is pretty dumb, but he can be craft. If he was really smart I might give this to him but he's not.

Since this is to the death, I see this being a stalemate unless the Absorbing Man gets lucky and absorbs something insanely powerful. They are in NY city. I assume Marvels. Dr. Strange's house, Fantastic Four HQ, Avengers HQ… This is the only way I see one of these two dying.

Iceman or stalemate

A lot of fights with Iceman seem to end in a stalemate....
