Anyone want to clue me in (via spoiler) what the "absolute shocking reveal" in Spider-man was?

And actually having Ron Frenz doing the art in part of that Spider-verse team up may actually make me get it. He was the classic 80s Spider-artist to me.

Oh hell, Miles' series is ending AGAIN!?!? This is ridiculous.

I fail to see the point of these polls if the only way a Justice Leaguer can lose is by putting them up against a/the Hulk. Greg and the rest of the CV staff could do a lot to make these more interesting contests by mining some of the lesser-known characters in either comic universe to participate. I think that would counter some of the fan-boy bias and force people to read up a little before voting (i.e. if I see one more person mention water hands, telepathy and/or tridents shooting lasers/energy this month I think I'll scream).

Apologies for the rant (just had to get it off my chest)...carry on

We have. The result? A big drop in traffic. It's too bad more people didn't spread the word back when we did take risks and use lesser-knowns. If people did, odds are we'd be using them more frequently. Hell, I've even tried to avoid standard 1v1s (2v2s, scenarios) and those took a noticeable drop, too.

Just out of curiosity, what level of popularity are you willing to go down to at this point? I mean I kind of agree there are only so many bricks out there who don't also have a variety of other powers that would give them too many advantages, like Blue Marvel etc. But are, for instance, Hercules, Wonder Man, Captain Britain, Wendigo, Champion, Kurse, and Drax below the popularity level you're aiming at now?

There are a lot of battle threads where linking to this article will save a lot of typing :)

Someone should make a list of every time he's lost a fight. I'm not hating here, I think it would be interesting data. I did a short survey of the times Daredevil dodged versus the times he was hit over something like 30 issues, I thought it was interesting to see.

Stop at Doom. Although honestly without prep, and with no forcefields, it would be pretty tough for him.

I think they could take the Hulks through a combo of TK and sabers. And they'd be fast enough to avoid being hit. But the team would lose maybe 4 out of 10 rounds against the Hulks.

I would say that in this case, the Goblin team would be tougher than the Spiders, just because the Goblins have more ranged weapons and can fly, so they'd have more offensive and defensive options. They'd still lose though.

@owie: Gold is not magnetic ya fool

Obviously. But contrary to what you said in your last post, it is metal.

And rarely are comic characters' magnetic powers limited to only affecting ferrous metals, due to the quasi-scientific nature of comic books. God knows how weak Magneto would be if he could only affect iron. But anyway it's adamantine.

Magneto can't affect non-ferrous metals. There's an example of him in the X-Men unable to stop a bunch of giant robots because they weren't made of ferrous metals.

His powers have varied quite a bit, but writers tend to take a pretty loose approach about what kind of metals he can affect.

@owie: You are daft. It is for sure not adamantine. You show me any new 52 scan of his trident being referred to as adamantine. Let me help you out there, you won't. Stop pulling false facts outa your ass. And Aquaman trident is magical. So no device has any effect on it. Magic > Science pal.

Chill out, dude. Let me give you a clue: it sure ain't gold, one of the softest metals on earth. And being magic doesn't mean science can't affect it. Or vice versa.

@owie: Aquamans trident isn't made of metal. It's gold. So tonys magnetic field is pointless here. Aquaman can easily outmaneuver iron mans blasts and easily jump to the water in a few hulk like leaps. Aquaman wins

How he will land a hit with the Trident? Iron Man would just dodge, look at the other pages, this was discussed a lot here lol. And how Arthur would leap into someone who can fly, maneuver and react at mach 8+ speeds? And no, his trident isn't made of gold, it's made of adamantine, if it was made of gold it would never pierce into Iron Man armour or into anything. Why Tony would follow him into the water in the first place when he could just stay flying and hit Aquaman even if he was inside the water (He would clearly see Arthur inside the rivers with his sensors, doesn't matter how muddy the waters were at the time)?

And of course, even if it was gold, gold is in fact a kind of metal :)

@owie: Can you tell me what Tony would do if/when Aquaman makes it to the water and dives down deep? Tony may have advantage in the air but Aquaman has the same advantage, plus more(control marine life) underwater. Also Aquaman has his indestructible trident. Tony and Arthur can take plenty of punches from eachother and Arthur can handle Tony's blasts. But if Arthur get one good stab at Tony's armor with his trident, Tony is done. Aquaman wins

I don't think he'd make it to the water. Tony's repulsors are concussive and he could use them to knock him away from the water each time he tried to get there, and I think the continual hits Aquaman took would put him down sooner or later. In the water or in the air, Iron Man still has a magnetic forcefield that can keep the trident away. Ad if Aquaman runs away to the water and Tony doesn't follow, that would count as a tactical retreat on Aquaman's part, and thus a loss, in my mind.

@owie: I had doubt so I searched again if he was fully healed and I found out that Black Bolt managed to fully heal himself after that. So that part still doesn't make any sense (Maybe Black Bolt held himself back).

He probably didn't want to kill black panther. In infinity a 50% black bolt one shotted namor, iron man, and beast and that issue was also written by Hickman. So I'm sure Hickman understands black bolt could have easily killed Namor.

Also in regards to thanos teleporting remember in the first issue black panther tried that but the incursion messed with his teleporter and he didn't get to where he wanted to go. Thanos can probably teleport back assuming he is still alive (which he probably is because its thanos).

You mean he didn't want to kill Namor, not Panther, I assume?

No I mean black panther. I assume if black bolt had created a more powerful scream black panther would have been caught up inside it. Black bolt was probably trying to make sure his scream hit namor only. Thats my opinion and I think it makes sense.

Ah, I see. That could be, I guess.
