Hmm.. Looks like Rhino is gonna be some mechanical quadruped.. I am not impressed.. -_-
I give this movie 1/2 "meh" out of 4..
yeah, i don't like it at all if Rhino is just gonna be a damn robot….
This venom sting sounds like the equivalent of when Voltron pulls out the sword at the end of the episode.
i know so little about any "non-main universe" characters that i'm not even going to cast a vote… but that tech list for b-man is …. formidable. The increased strength, agility, speed, reflexes, and "senses" pretty much negates every "natural" advantage that s-man has… and then there's all that other business. I'm not sure what this venom sting thing is and his apparent invisibility is negated so… hopefully that venom sting is pretty good.
Somebody up there said Bloodshot is like a combination of Captain America, Wolverine, and the Punisher. That's probably the best description I can think of.
When I first read this I thought "Well Daredevil can dodge gunfire and he's infinitely more agile than Bloodshot so that's about that."
While those things are true… That just gives Daredevil a way not to lose, but not really a way to win. If he wants to go for the win, he's going to have to sacrifice his defensive tactics. He'll have to stop moving around enough to accurately throw a club, or even worse, approach Bloodshot which will drastically reduce his ability to dodge incoming gunfire.
But Daredevil's quicker and knows pressure points etc…. 1) Are we even sure that pressure points would work on Bloodshot? 2) It doesn't matter how many blows you land on someone if your blows are more or less inconsequential. Eventually Daredevil will get tagged. And it will snowball. The best chance for Daredevil injuring Bloodshot is to try and break bones, etc, because that actually takes Bloodshot some time to regrow, but hell, we've seen him stab someone through the face with the jagged bones sticking out of his forearm so that could even be a dangerous move.
It's not so much that Bloodshot could just flat out take Daredevil down, but I think if Daredevil tries to go for the win…. which he has to based on the scenario… he will have to sacrifice his survival to take his shot. That will leave him open enough for Bloodshot to connect and win.
Hobgoblin is a liability. He's none too bright. Easily rattled. And prone to just charging in because he's angry. While he should be intelligent and stay airborne and attack with range, I think he is 100% going to do something stupid and give one of his opponents a chance to take him down. And it wouldn't take much, he's far from a physical tank of a character.
I just..... I just don't see how Gambit could win this.
First of all, let's be clear - if there were no morals, Nightcrawler would kill Gambit immediately. Immediately. 100%. The fact that Nightcrawler is a devout Catholic is the only thing keeping Kurt from teleporting Gambit into a wall, or teleporting away with parts of his body (aka teleporting the head off of the body - I forget where he did this, probably in Uncanny X-Force and as AOA Kurt, but still), or the classic teleport up and drop him from a height.
Second, If Kurt wants to get away, or not be touched, he is getting away or not being touched. The likelihood of Gambit landing a final blow is so small....... there would have to be small children in danger or something to prevent Kurt from just leaving and recuperating. In this regard, the only way Gambit could win is if Kurt finds it necessary to sacrifice himself.
Third, say they do get into a close quarters melee, which is the best option for Gambit overall despite his ranged cards/etc attacks, I think Kurt is just to quick and slippery even without teleporting for Gambit to land enough meaningful blows to win. And then..... just add the teleportation factor... so that's out for Gambit too.
With the environment - dark areas for Kurt to hide in if he needs a moment - no innocent bystanders for Gambit to use to Kurt's disadvantage (not that he necessarily would)..... I honestly think this is a 10/10 for Nightcrawler situation.
