@kangconquers: That'll only happen if there's kryptonite around. Every time he gets the upper hand there's always some plot device involved, some super-material or the hero's weakness just lying around for him to absorb.
I think everyone here besides Kurse, who's just too durable, gets turned into paste. Zod is too fast.
Both series were really good, but I just liked how Scarlet Spider was much more versatile. X-Force was just a bit too defining, they're the covert ops team, they have all the vicious killers, they're all about srs bsns.
