No idea why people insult Xavier and use terms like Pervy to insult the guy, when he kept his feeling back because he regonized it was inappropriate since he was the leader of the X-men (plus some weird insecurity about being unable to provide love while being unable to walk, seems like Lilandra helped him get over that).
Prof X is a seriously moral guy, he has the ability to mentally subjugate people and doesn't do it. That's more than the vast majority of the Marvel Universe (or any of us) can say they've been tested with.
Not sure why falling in love with Jean Gray is some kinda moral sin, people seem to forgive Wolverine for it.
He was the 7th, then Pym came back and he was bumped down to 8. The bios were written before Secret Invasion and Pym's return.
Doesn't make sense. Pym was always considered one of the great minds in the Marvel Universe. So why would his return change where Cho ranks? DOA he's still a top level genius.I don't know whether it's Hank or Black Panther but one of them isn't smarter than Cho.
You don't count dead people when you're counting the smartest people on Earth. They're all smarter than Cho. He's eighth.
Screenshots like this with actual quotes appear to be very good resources for resolving these debates. I think ideally if we could gather them and present them in chronilogical order (along with notes such as various people being dead/gone at the time) they could be arranged in an elusive way.
Especially when I hear things like Pym saying Parker's smarter than him? Does this count, or can a genius be overly humble?
It seems like much of it might come down to opinion. Humble genius would rank himself lower, arrogant genius (say Doom) would rank himself higher.
Assuming the magic of the hammer indeed prevents anyone unworthy from lifting it, no matter how strong they are, what are the physics in regard to what happens when someone tries to...
Like if the hulk were trying to lift the hammer on some soft earth, sand, etc. would his feet sink into the ground until it was like he was at the top of a deadlift (hips locked out) except the earth would be supporting the hammer I guess...
Which begs the question, if the hammer landed on the beach and that beach was Sandman and he made the part it landed on into his hand, could he not assume a posture as if he had lifted it....
Kitty is between 13 and a half to 14 and a half at this time, since she was introduced in Uncanny X-Men #129 in 1980 at age 13. Here's a scan from issue #129 to confirm:
I think ideally if we could, there should be a wiki solely for cataloguing specific age references for characters just to establish what age every character was in the timeline. These issues seem to come up a lot, especially for minors.
