Can Magneto take down Nova ?

#2 Posted by Akira Overdrive (10120 posts) - - Show Bio

Nope.

#3 Posted by Pania (1759 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know much about Nova, but from what I do know that would be one heck of a fight.

What is "nova energy"? Is it anything scientific at all?

Right now, given Nova's abilities to absorb energy, along with super speed...I think he takes this one. Magneto has shown himself able to control gravitons in the past, but it is not his primary ability. Nova absorbs whatever Magneto throws at him, and Magneto does not have full control over what Nova throws at him.

How is Magneto gonna do that when Nova is faster then Magneto?

#5 Posted by Geo-Man (354 posts) - - Show Bio

I say Magneto wins. He creates a force field then sucks the iron out of Nova.

he doesn't have to target him exactly,he can create a field with a radius to catch him,and pull the iron out of him.

He did not know that he was there.  
 
Magneto can do this:
 
 Affecting objects thousands of miles away (Uncanny X-Men #150)
 
and this.
 
  Sensing objects and attacks he cannot see. (X-Men Vol. 2 #2)

This is a good point. I don't think Magneto has to directly target Nova. I'm sure he can just affect an entire area around him. But Nova would still be too much for Magneto even if he somehow 'caught' Nova.

I'm going with Magneto.

This would be a cool battle. Electromagnetism and gravity are both basic forces that make up the universe. If Magneto took away those mental blocks of his, this would be amazing to watch, but as it stands, Nova will just simply be too much for him.

Haven't read this one personally, but apparently he crossed a large magellanic cloud in 12 minutes, which is trillions of times the speed of light

Annihilus vs. Nova...lets hope Mags doesn't like long speeches or anything...

Thanks for reading,

Yes, I am 100% quoting you, and no, that is not sarcasm.

As I said, I haven't read it personally, but I'll take your word for it.

Which Nova? Nova Prime, or Regular Nova. Anyways Either version of Nova would win his feats are far much greater than that of Magneto;s.

#34 Posted by Pwok21 (2459 posts) - - Show Bio

@Floopay:

The cloud itself is like 180k lightyears from Earth, and the Large Magellanic Cloud is... well large so when you take into account the speed he was going at you are already into huge numbers; and then Hala is supposed to lie the other side of said Cloud so it's pretty ridiculous when you think about the fact he did it in twelve minutes.

It's not entirely accurate based on no real accurate scale for the Cloud or where Hala is but we can only see 20k light years into the cloud itself so who knows just how big it is...
