Dunno whats worse really, that tumblr post or some of the responses in this thread?
Outside_85's forum posts
Off hand I would give it to Toph because of her greater finess. Korra may have the same amount of power, but I think we can all agree that she isn't all that precise as long as she thinks she can simply over-power an opponent (which she still did when she faced Grandma Toph while not in great shape).
@Outside_55: Exactly both statements, and while I don't see why both would lie, there is no on panel scans etc so by feats; he has nothing to compare to that level.
Thats a little silly way of looking at it if you ask me, so just because Trigon destroyed a universe while no one was looking, then it couldn't actually have happened?
Besides it's pretty well stated here that Trigon has done as claimed.
@kingant27: Not really, Raven stated that he had claimed his own universe at the age of 30. Trigon himself said he had killed that universe, and later at even when a shade of himself he was able to repeat that feat. And according to Raven thats enough to be true since it's out of Trigons character to lie about what he is and isn't capable of, plus she bridges with him on a psychic level, so lying to her is going to be difficult to begin with.
So with that said, I dont think Peter has the mental fortitude
I disagree both of them have the same amount of mental fortitude. Both of them have incredible willpower. However Batman is not burdened with having a lot of immediate family not to mention Bruce has a far colder outlook on life than Pete does. Basically Peter has far more to loose than Bruce as Bruce's life is Batman. Meaning Bruce is to a certain extent more effective but he has no more mental fortitude than Parker. Mental fortitude is not a unique trait. It differs in certain situations and would depend on the context of the situation.
Grated initially with some of Batman's smarter villains this would initially be a problem. The key word here being . Peter while not a killer does have a certain grey area as has been shown in Back In Black and Grim Hunt. If someone like the Joker did kill a bunch of people with Parker unable to stop it especially if it was people who were close to him Pete would be very likely to cripple them especially when he sees how far they go.
So yes in the short term there could be more casualties given that Parker is not used to dealing with said villains. However in the long term a lot less people would die. Due to people like Joker potentially being crippled for the rest of their miserable lives.
And I disagree with the first part because Peter doesn't handle loss very well, and the Gotham crowd isn't going to lighten up for his sake. It's still Peter Parker thats going to have to arrive to the aftermath of one of the Joker's massacres. And my point was that Batman just has more fortitude than Peter, not that Peter had none.
What Peter will do wont matter one bit if he can never get his hands on them. My point was that quite a few of Batman's villains are deranged but highly intelligent, most of them have some kind of compulsion that have them leave tracks that Batman can follow, but often these tracks are so well hidden it takes the worlds greatest detective to even realize they are tracks. As for crippling people, I don't consider that very likely since the the people with the most bodies on their concience of his own opponents are all alive and well and still very active.
Also there is the possibility of Peter getting killed off early on because he wasn't prepared for what Gotham decided to throw at him.
Well every Gotham villain would be one-shotted so.....yeah.....he'd probably do very well.
Kinda like how it already is. All the Gotham villains have to pull all their tricks and terrors before Batman stomps their heads into the ground.
So with that said, I dont think Peter has the mental fortitude it would need to fill out Bruce's shoes. Plus he isn't half the detective Bruce is, so you have to double the existing body count.
