@supersaiyan_danger: If you're talking about giant Korra, then that was also her spirit. Her physical body was still in the spirit world(lol at the irony of things being in reverse in this case)..
Storm Calling's forum posts
@jhazzroucher: TB actually listed this as a weakness in his initial post(which I agree with entirely). He just didn't agree with you that her sense of morality was a flaw. Granted, it can be exploited as a weakness, but a flaw is another thing entirely.
For Storm I think the 3 flaws of her power set are:
1. Physical Exhaustion - She primarily manipulates multiple forms of energy forces in order to generate the desired atmospheric effects, and due to the immense power involved with some of these forces it can be physically and mentally taxing.
2. Respecting Natural Flow & Boundaries of the Biosphere - Because the biosphere (and the planet's EM field) is the primary resource of her powers she must try and work within the natural parameters of the environment she is in.Otherwise she risks throwing these natural forces out of balance and that can have catastrophic results on a potentially planetary scale, and it may not be fixable once it reaches a certain point.
3. Powers tied to her Emotions - Due to her powers being tied to her emotions she has to maintain a tight control so that the atmosphere around does not become destructive.
I don't really see any major flaws for Magneto's power set.The only one I can think of is:
1. Physical Exhaustion - He manipulates a fundamental force of the universe on a vast scale, at least pre AvX, and is also physically taxed by wielding these forces.
Question - How do we know that only less than 10% are of mutants are alphas?
I agree with this... however with the first part have we seen this recently? I thought after punk storm she made the comment that creating storms (destructive storms) was easier for her.
It may not have ever changed, even with Punk Storm. The reason she was able to create them easier at that point was because she was beginning to ignore some of the repercussions that involved the use of her powers, which made the load easier. Pre-Punk made it a point to ensure that her effects wouldn't cause "any" repercussions. This sometimes forced her to manipulate the weather at very large/extreme scales just to perform moderate power feats. It's unclear if she went back to her pre-punk phase with the use of her powers or not, but I'm assuming just like her personality, she found a balance between the two.
What is johneys max speed? Is there any argument that can be made to say yammamoto cannot speed blitz him? Shunpo performed by lesser shinagami are enough to bump half the bleach verse into low hypersonic tier. Ichigo and byakuya are high HS tier. But theyre speed based afterall and yammamoto is more rounded than that. but he is still the Captain General. Old man or not he aint as slow as the rank and file.
Other than that I sincerely doubt an argument can be made saying Johney can overcome the sun-inside-a-sword.
The water didnt just evaporate. All moisture was erased entirely. Hitsugayas bankai can control the weather itself. Yet it was overpowered and evaporated
His travel speed is above supersonic IIRC, but his combat speed is fairly normal/human. Unless this is a race, I don't see why his flight speed would be a problem.
@storm_calling: anime is filler
his aura takes away moisture, his heat is however contained in his blade.
destruction by the heat? the only damage is when he hit the ground to slash it
While that is true, the anime never deviated away from the manga to a point where we cannot consider what they were doing with their powers implausible or inaccurate. Both the stories and powers were contained in a way so that they could still add in the manga canon whenever it was ready. The anime was forced to use powers that were implied or previously used in order to remain within canon. Yamamoto for example was an implied kido master(official battle rating list him as 100% in kido), and was shown in the manga performing a level 96(99 is the top) hado without incantation(very rare). Not to mention it was a forbidden technique, which suggest he has extensive knowledge and training of the art.His danku spell that he used in the anime filler was a level 81 spell. So that's plausible.
He was shown to be faster than two of the highest level captains(Shunsui has been shown blitzing several characters and dodging extremely fast attacks) in the series. So they stack up pretty well, even if we aren't to consider the anime as canon.
The aura surrounding and protecting him is also contained, the temperature is the heat of the sun as well. The Juha Bach clone couldn't even cut him with his sword without it disintegrating. The flames shown was his spiritual pressure, which looked like flames but weren't actual flames.
They were fighting in an area full of buildings and houses. When the Commander unleashed his bankai there was nothing but earth and rubble standing from as far as we could see in the panels. The heat wasn't focused toward the ground until he actually placed his sword into it to summon the dead.
Wow at some of the arguments presented in this thread. Yamamoto clearly won on page one. lol
@funsiized: dodging zeta beams, combat speed and he can return fire [also escape velocity for being able to escape the atmosphere with ease]
I don't think anyone is debating that Yamamoto can defeat Johnny with his flames, we all know that he is impervious to fire. I think the point is that the Commander can get it pretty hot as well and withstand those temperatures. So he should be able to withstand all but his absolute most powerful attacks, which he clearly won't get the chance to use.
