@willpayton: @oblivionknight: @pooty:

Finally, some people who are willing to discuss the actual topic, about the cross. I'd be more than happy to hold an actual debate with any of you. Should you want. I'll even re-post my initial post.

There are a lot of rosters I liked. Stern's, Busiek's, The qooky quartet, even the Avengers World roster by Hickman. For long as the roster contains the big three plus a few others then I dig it.

@jashro44: Hmm...that makes the Iron Fist much less impressive then. I mean it still does damage but it doesn't get that huge upgrade. it true that Cap's shield isn't effected by magnetism? I swore I saw Magneto do something to it before.

There is a comicvine page about that very topic right here. Hope I helped.

Daredevil doesn't have super speed. Lol.

I think he means in terms of reflexes, due to his super senses.

In all I think the analysis for both heroes were pretty good. There are a few out of context or misinformation moments but they don't really derail the analysis for either character.

There is some out of context info in both videos, for batman:

  • The leg press scan is from batman odyssey which is non canon.
  • Shiva may have been mind controlled against grodd (debatable if this hindered her performance)
  • Dr. Death stated the door may not have been as durable as he originally said it was. All though I guess this is up for debate (all though the fact dr. death survived being tossed through a missile proof door is kind of telling it wasn't missile proof IMO)
  • Aren't those Richard dragon scans pre crisis? Not that it matters as I don't think dragon has any canon post crisis feats but I could be wrong.

For captain america:

  • The fight with black panther, T'challa was holding back (they both were but I believe black panther more so). They were forced to fight in contest of champions 2 due to the brood and the panther gods gave black panther some resistance to it. Cap did show he adapts to different fighting styles and can sense air currents but thats not really a legit win.
  • IIRC that fight with daredevil was streets of poison where cap was bloodlusted and daredevil had to relearn how to fight if I am not mistaken.
  • Also iron fist never knocked out skaar. Skaar was pretending.

You also forgot to add (it's said in the Batman part) Cap's Shield is not made of adamantium and it is not effected by magnetic forces.

And at 2:00 into the Captain America one, he says Cap knocked out a super soldier who had the SSS, or maybe a different version. When in fact it was a Kree super soldier.

Also why do you think Black Panther was holding back more? I'm just curious because haven't actually read Contest of Champions II, but I agree the fight shouldn't be use as a "win".

Thanks. I remember hearing about the salary issues as well. There was also a rumor that Renner wasn't going to be Hawkeye, which he stopped himself. I think all the contracts are sorted out, at least until after Avengers 3, but anything can happen. That's why we should not take these great movies for granted.

Should be no surprise to anyone, but I'm going with Brubaker's Captain America. I love all the spy and military stuff, it's like Ian Flemming and Tom Clancy collaborated on a book.

I agree. I also think Avengers did a very good job and showcasing all the Avengers...yes even Hawkeye maybe not character depth but they did show how destructive he could be if he were on the enemy side (for a just a guy who uses a bow and arrow). Still hoping they give a chance more on his character, but overall the team really shined in their roles.

For Hawkeye, if you take into account just the Battle of New York, then I think he did shine just as much, those marksmanship feats were crazy awesome. But yes throughout the whole movie I would have loved to have seen at least a little bit of depth/growth, here's hoping they do a bit in Avengers: AOU, I would also like to see more on his character depth/growth as well.

@tg1982: What I meant was more along the lines of him taking charge and being leader because he feels somewhat out of place in this modern world, but he was getting more and more confident at the end of Avengers, and he's calling shots more in Winter Soldier it seems. Should be awesome to watch :)

Oh, then yeah I agree 100%.

@slimj87d: @veshark:

Yes, Paul Bettany, a very talented actor. He's perhaps best known for Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World, A Knight's Tale, and A Beautiful Mind, as well as the voice of Jarvis.

I think a WCA would be pretty cool to see in the MCU, but the problem might be the fact that they're the lesser known commodities, it would be a bit harder to generate public interest for the average movie goer, and also, as you said, there is the "over milking" that they would have to be aware of.

@slimj87d said:

On the Vision, I think it's been confirmed to be JARVIS since Jarvis voice actor has been confirmed to be playing vision.

There's a high possibility for the East Coast, I don't think Avengers 3 will have the original Avengers in it, or there will be a point where a second set of Avengers will be required to assemble from the hints we hear about from Marvel. Perhaps the original members get captured by Thanos or something.

Why do you think that? Would you perhaps know where to find these hints? I've never seen them and am very interested in this possibility.

Yeah kinda Kirby-esque, only a little darker. But overall I think Remender is doing a terrific job, the only negative (And it's a extremely small negative at that) and it's by no means Remender's fault, is the apparent fact, that Marvel can't seem to get a steady artist on the title with Remender, but hopefuly that will change with Nic Klein jumping on board, his art is, IMO, fantastic.
