"Buckshot says:"Valkaad says:Your whole argument seems to be based on superman surprise attacking molecule man by flying at him at the speed of light. Your scenarios seem to have molecule man totally unaware that a superhuman being is intent on killing him if he KNEW he were in a fight why wouldn't he have up a force field. Given their dispositions, Superman a beacon of all that is good, and molecule man a former criminal. it would seem that if someone initiated the attack or suprise attacked it would be molecule man. If molecule man attacked superman, he can fold space and travel way faster than the speed of light, so speed is not an issue. If they both knew they were to fight each other or the fight was scheduled, Molecule Mans attacks/defenses are virtually endless. He could simply teleport himself to the other side of the galaxy locate superman via his cosmic awareness and turn superman into a steaming pile of dog crap from the other side of pluto. ""Doomsday was not made of Kryptonite or Magic and he killed superman with physical force. If a certain level of physical force can kill superman then why would he be immune to molecular rearrangement. Invisible woman and Colossus both have limited endurance. They can only exert themselves for a finite amount of time before mental/physical fatigue sets in and they have to rest. Molecule man on the other hand has the ability to exert his powers all the time he can restructure his body in any way possible. Molecule man's powers affect ALL molecules, he can even restructure elements (something the surfer can't even do) so Superman's body would be like putty in his hand. AS far a creating force field strong enough to repel superman Why couldn't he do it? He can make molecules do anything yes ANYTHING, so creating an invulnerable force field wouldn't be that hard for him to accomplish. "Yes, Doomsday, the monster created by super-accelerated evolution and lived hundreds, if not thousands of lives ON KRYPTON was not *made* of Kryptonite. Fine, I'll concede that point. While Invisible Woman has been shown to have limits on her forcefields, Piotr can stay metal indefinitely. Like I said, while your theory on Molecule Man's ever-present forcefield makes sense, it's just an unproven theory. Assuming he can make an indestructible force field, how does he do it faster than Superman can kill him? Also, can light get through? If so, laser vision works. If not, it still works because I've seen him use it as a sub-atomic scalpel. It would slip past the force field since it's only on the molecular level. Superman could also phase through it with super speed. And back on speed, how does Molecule Man do anything before Superman kills him?"
Not to turn against my own side Valkaad but I think the supposition is that both know they are about to fight and may even be standing facing each other. Neither one is able to use a power until the starting gun goes off. They stand there staring into each other's eyes. The starter pulls his trigger and in the time that it takes for the sound of the gun going off to end, Superman could have flown to Molecule Man and snapped his neck, all before Molecule Man could have had a thought to even raise his shields. With someone as fast as Superman, it all depends on the stipulations for the beginning of the fight.
