Opinion for composite Ninja turtles

Bloodlust: Fighting to kill, abandoning Ninja code.

In Character: Within the Ninja code, utilizing individual strengths, weaknesses, and typical strategies

Raphael in Character > All turtles in Character

Raphael with bloodlust = Leonardo in Character = Michelangelo with bloodlust

Raphael with bloodlust/in Character and Michelangelo with bloodlust/in Character < Leonardo with bloodlust = Donatello with bloodlust

Leonardo in Character > Michelangelo in character > Raphael with bloodlust

Donatello in Character < All turtles in character and with bloodlust

In the Dragon Ball universe, and in all fictional universes in my opinion, strategy and finesse are ultimately irrelevant when you reach higher levels of raw power in martial arts. The reason why Goku becomes a "brawler"/flying brick in Dragon Ball Z, compared to him focusing on hand to hand skill and strategy when he was a child, is because hand to hand skill is irrelevant from Raditz and up. Goku can utilize hand to hand strategy and recognizable martial arts techniques, but usually only in a tournament context will they mean anything.

Similarly Captain America with his peak human conditioning, can hold his own against Wolverine and Batman; despite them knowing and mastering over 100 forms of martial arts.

Kinda negates all the stuff Hickman did huh? Ah continuity, thou art a cruel mistress indeed.

To be fair, Hickman's future was 1000 years later. Continuity is still possible, just maybe not probable.

Bump for the new movie coming out.

With Andrew Garfield allegedly saying that Miles should replace Peter in the film series, I started to think about different ways they could have introduced the character.

For example

What if Miles Morales was introduced at least a year before Ultimate Peter Parker's death (with the powers and everything)? Would people warm up to him replacing Peter without as much drama and vitriol? That way he would be Peter's friend/ally/ward rather than some random politically correct replacement.

I thought Norman just heals. he died like 3 times,

And i figured the whole scorpion was so unstable that he would be useless as anything as a villain. He only has 3 fingers for goodness sake. IDK I think theres more to it then just peter returning. To create a whole knew spider-man learning how to deal with being spider-man when the original is no more, only to bring the original back while he is still learning, shifts the entire point of miles stories and the spot light would be back to peter no? it is a comic though anything can happen i look forward to it

Which is why I don't want Peter to return as Spider-Man.

About Scorpion, his condition (mentality and fingers) seems to be fixable.

it should be interesting to see what ends up happening.

Agreed, as long as its not a bait and switch type of thing.

here is the scan from when he returned

Despite the fact that "dead is dead" in the Ultimate Universe, they left too many doors open for his return. Staying dead would have made even less sense in the story, unless I missed an issue/scan when he requested not to be resuscitated. I hope it's really him, but I don't think he should come back as Spider-Man though (or a villain for that matter).

what doors did they leave open? i mean sure he could come back, but in the 616 universe where he unmasked himself his life was basically effed, they wrote themselves into a corner and the only way to fix it is a deal with the devil had to be made lol, so much hate and controversy was received by that. If an adult peter couldnt handle the unmasking, how is a teenage one going to do better? as soon as he shows his face his loved ones friends and old school will all be taken out like the kingpin threatened to do, im actually surprised when miles showed up no one mistook him for peter and went on a killing spree

What doors? The clones (particularly Scorpion), the process that brought Norman back to life, the overall vagueness of his death, just to name a few.

I don't agree that OMD was necessary, and I don't mean that as a bitter fanboy. I honestly think there were a lot of stories they could have told with Spider-Man's identity compromised and a fugitive from the Civil War. It definitely would have "shaken up the status quo" which was the purpose of Superior Spider-Man. Even more so, it can lead to some interesting stories in the Ultimate Universe for teen Peter Parker (not only is his identity compromised but he's been dead for a while). However, to keep the integrity of the Ultimate Universe, I don't think Peter should return as Spider-Man. Maybe Scarlet Spider or something like that. Maybe he shouldn't even publically identify himself as Peter Parker (except to Miles and a few others).

@punyparker: my interpretation of that scene was that Peter was reliving all of Ock's memories...he got up to the point where in issue 700 he flooded Ock with all of his memories so in essence he gave all of his memories back to himself

I hope you're right.

If you look at the memory panels you see Spider-island and Spider-Men panels, meaning he did get some of his more recent memories. Beyond the 31 basic ones.
