@laflux: He's not teleporting out like its nothing, All of the flashes have had insanely hard times with the speed force. It makes you forget who you are and what you are and where you're from etc.. If people could come and go, it would be pointless.
Tony's side was COMPLETELY right in spirit and on paper. You want your policemen trained and certified. You want you doctors trained and certified. You want your firemen trained and certified.You want your pilot trained and certified. You probably want your electrician or auto mechanic trained and certified. Tony's side was right but the implementation was wrong
If super-powerful beings wanted to execute the law, they need to be sworn in, not taking stuff into their own hands. Otherwise, who's to stop them from taking the entire government into their own hands?
@pooty: hmm, good question. I'd say a god has to be able to create intelligent life that is capable of sustained growth and evolution. Might also need to be able to grant actual blessings like changing the course of events to fit the will of the one praying, not simply being able to make it rain with a magic hammer. Of all the comic characters I can think of right off hand, I'd say Galactus is the closest to a god because he has no equal. Not Thanos, not Odin, not Darkseid not even the Anti-Moniter. Plus he is the sole survivor of the pre-big bang universe so that makes him as godlike as anyone. Hope this helps and hope I didn't ramble too much.
What he said. Didn't think I had to spell it out. I don't care what kind of powers say, Q from Star Trek has, he's not a god. Godlike maybe, but I'd never worship or revere him.
Well, you didn't, really. You stated having godlike power, being a higher form of life or being extradimensional would not constitute one being a god (which I assume means you do have a standard in mind). So to you, what does? Or are you saying there is no acceptable standard for godhood? I'm not trying to badger you or anything, I'm trying to get the full picture of what you're saying.
@reactor: Tis cool. I think what sets them apart in comic verse is that gods are extradimensional. They come from higher planes of existence, like Asgard, Fourth World, Olympia, Heaven, etc. Biblically, God resides in Heaven / spirit realm. So no, he wouldn't be a "native" of the physical universe. In fact, he's not even native to heaven, since he'd created it x-billions of years ago.
