Man, there is some top class debating going on in this thread.

@comicsrulebutdbzdoes2: @bluejay4:@lukehero:

What Spider-man book y'all two been reading that Spider-man is so incredibly fast and Strong? I'll wait for it I want a specific name. I call what he has enhanced strength and speed not Super strength and Super speed like Superman or Aquaman. After reading Amazing Spider-man he didn't seem all that mind blowingly fast and strong to me compared to when I was reading Batman's.

@bluejay4: How old are those? Do you have anything that is pertinent in the year 2014? The year we're in.

This was absolutely golden.

If Peter doesn't whip the crap out of SpOck, I'm going to be supremely pissed.

Hate to say it, but, aside from a few problems, this issue was pretty solid.

Main Story was actually fine for once. Peter got to look like a competent hero for once, and Ms. Marvel fangirling about getting to do patented Carol/Spidey maneuvers was pretty fun. Also, there wasn't any uncomfortable, creepy sex-stuff with Silk. I still don't give an iota of a damn about her, but at least she wasn't around Peter in this issue.

Horrible back-up story. Just more SHOCK VALUE/fan trolling. Mayday was written out of character and it's becoming more and more obvious that Slott is going out of his way just to piss people off now, instead of trying to write an actually good story.

You're right. It's insane to think a being made of electricity fires bolts of electricity that look and behave just like electricity. I'm done with this conversation as you're being unbelievably thick. Call it agreeing to disagree if you like. I'll call it being secure in the fact that I'm right and that you're being a crazy person.

They can. But that rarely ever happens. I guess we should assume no street levellers can deflect bullets.

Hide behind your lame insults. My proof is more valid. You have nothing but what it looks like... *clap clap clap*

Never said that. But hey, put words in my mouth if you like. It's a better debate tactic than pretending electricity isn't electricity for some reason.

Your proof is that some omniscient narrator didn't come down from the sky and say: "Hey, in this movie electricity moves as fast as electricity." Your proof doesn't exist. You saying the attack is slower than electricity is based on literally nothing. At no point in the movie are we led to believe that the electric attacks being fired are any slower than electricity normally is. You don't like the feat. Fine. Whine about it, but it still absolutely happened. Unless you can come up with something better than: "We're never told how fast the attacks are" then, you're wrong.

As I said, aim dodging. And other street levelers aim dodging lightning/lasers doesn't suddenly retroactively edit the footage of Spider-man explicitly dodging lightning after it was fired. Plug your ears, go "la la la" all you like. You're still wrong.

That's an inconsistency in his reaction speed, then. One that Spider-man didn't show as he was capable of dodging lightning repeatedly throughout this movie.

Your proof is that other people have dodged lightning, therefore Spider-man didn't? Your "proof" trumps nothing. You're being ridiculous and are transparently lowballing a feat for basically no reason. Spider-man dodged lightning. Dislike it all you like, but it clearly, and repeatedly, happened.

Oh my goodness. How is it aim dodging if some street levellers deflected lasers with their swords? In which deflecting things with a sword is better than dodging. The street levellers I'm referring to weren't aim dodging. Ignorant much?

My proof is that the speed of Electro's attacks are unquantifiable. You don't even have any other proof besides the way it looks. Agree to disagree would be the best solution here, I think...

They can place their swords up before the attack is fired.

You're right. It's insane to think a being made of electricity is firing bolts of electricity, especially when they look and behave exactly like bolts of electricity. A spade's a spade and a duck's a duck. I don't know why you can't see that.

I'm done with this conversation as you're being unbelievably thick. Call it agreeing to disagree if you like. I'll call it being secure in the fact that I'm right and that you're being a crazy person.

Your argument that doesn't affect Spider-man clearly dodging lightning after it was fired? The one that is completely irrelevant to the conversation? The one I already answered? Okay.

How was it irrelevant? In the real world, lasers move as fast as light. In comics, street levellers dodge and deflect them. Doesn't mean they can react at light speed. Therefore it is unquantifiable in speed.

Its applicable here. In the real world lightning travels at near Mach 400. In comics street levellers dodge and deflect them, yes, Ultimate Cap has reacted to it. Doesn't mean they can react at lightning speeds. Therefore it is unquantifiable in speed unless stated otherwise.

There is my proof. Trumps taking everything at face value...

Someone who was turned into literal living electricity. Someone who could travel through electrical outlets. You can pretend that what you said wasn't completely ridiculous, but it was.

Yes. The basis for my argument is that electricity is probably still electricity.

1. An inconsistent feat for his travel speed. It has nothing to do with Spider-man's ability to dodge lightning.

2. Feats that he replicated over and over during the movie.

Saying lightning isn't lightning shows borderline insanity and a transparent attempt to lowball a good feat.

Peace.

Keep dodging my laser argument.
