Wally West

Barry's death motivated Wally.

"Is there any hero without some kind of death that surrounds them becoming a hero or getting powers"

Neither applies to Wally.

I'd want to swap that and see Lex and Tony in the same city. Those two arrogant bastards would make a great book.

The issue I have is that people always call Karate Kid's feats PIS.

However, he has consistently performed the same kinds of feats for over 40 years.

Is he overpowered for what his powerset is, absolutely, but he is FAR to consistent to be considered PIS.

Danny gets by with it because he has an energy source to use as a reasoning point, however Val just has skill.

My issue with his feats aren't the feats themselves but the way people interpret them. They are consistent as you said. Like Iron Fist, he can channel strength into pretty powerful blows when he concentrates. The problem is he has very few fighting feats. Batman has stalemated him at least once. He's also never beaten any Kryptonian level character. He can't harness his power enough to hurt them. Somehow though, he still ends up in fights like this.

The only part of your reply I disagree with is the skill part. You don't dodge lightning with skill. Human characters dodging bullets after they're fired is one thing. Ducking lightning is something else.

@pokeysteve: Honestly the only people who would maybe stop KK is Vision and Blue Marvel. But you're gonna say something about Iron Man soloing.

There is no maybe. It's doubtful he could hurt either of them so how could he win? He can't avoid them forever. Actually I can't really say if Iron Man could beat him alone because I don't know how fast his ring makes him. Removing the ring factor, Karate Kid is basically DC's Iron Fist so how would Iron Fist do against Tony?

If you think that Karate Kid is Dc's Iron Fist then you have definitely never read anything with Val in it.

In the sense of ridiculous feats, they are.

@newecho: KK took on Pre Crisis Kryptonians. How is this spite?

Because he didn't actually hurt any of them. He just dodged their attacks and now we get threads like these.

"Four of the funniest women in the world" is quite the stretch.

I'll be anxious for the trailer for these but I'd prefer they scrap both movies and go with the show with possible movies afterwards. A Ghostbusters series has more potential.

The only thing the Russian didn't smile off was boiling water to the face. I don't think she can top that.

I think the Kryptonians take it but the World Engines are very counter productive to their winning.
