Live action who knows. Scientists have never reached absolute zero, I don't think. Metals are treated with liquid nitrogen which makes them tougher. Liquid nitrogen isn't that far off from absolute zero. 150 or so degrees F.

That's actually quite a ways off. Absolute Zero is also something that in theory could never happen, as it's a point at which infinite heat is required to raise it's temperature by 1 degree. The freezing process also makes the subject more brittle as it reduces the amount of flex an object has simply by the nature of freezing something.

According to Science Daily the prereqs for absolute zero aren't that extreme. Scientists have actually gotten pretty close.

Absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature where nothing could be colder and no heat energy remains in a substance.

Absolute zero is the point at which the fundamental particles of nature have minimal vibrational motion, retaining only quantum mechanical, zero-point energy-induced particle motion.

By international agreement, absolute zero is defined as precisely; 0 K on the Kelvin scale, which is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale; and –273.15 degrees Celsius on the Celsius scale.

Absolute zero is also precisely equivalent to; 0 degrees R on the Rankine scale (also a thermodynamic temperature scale); and –459.67 degrees F on the Fahrenheit scale.

When a metal IS in an extreme cold state it can become brittle. Slowly dropping a metals temperature down to liquid nitrogen temps, leaving them there and slowly raising them increases their durability. It's a process used a lot in high performance automotive parts. It's called "Cryogenic Processing" or "Cryogenic Treatment" and the science is fascinating. You should look it up if you get some free time.

Venom was a huge disappointment. So was Galactus. Mandarin of course. Blackheart wasn't what I'd hoped he'd be. Jigsawr. Not a typo. That is what he wanted people to call him.

I liked Ultron. He was formidable and intelligent as implied.

This is just movies. The shows have had some villains that were a let down.

"Pain is weakness leaving the body."

That one has always annoyed me and is a favorite among douche bags.

@pokeysteve: tbh if them riot shields cisco made for the police tanked the cold gun i reckon live actions would

Im not too sure on comic versions though

I couldn't remember what he did to the riot shields. He's a tech guy.

Evil is subjective. The Holocaust is a good example. Personally, I think your Bible god is an ass.

I was really bummed by that too. The speed of sound wouldn't make him unseeable when traveling around the city. And as mentioned in comment 6, I guess CW lightning is pretty pathetic speed wise. Barry not only dodged that but got Joe out of the way too and they were both in a car. COME ON CW!

I'm picking Dredd based solely on his gun. It's the Batman's utility belt of firearms.

Harley solos against Jane's Punisher. Comic book Punisher puts up a better fight. Joker is useless either way. Harley is the one with the stats.

Morals are subjective. Lex, Ras and the like are all sticking to their morals.
