I take Peter and Grimm out of the equation because they'll be at a stand still. Torch will have Gambit on the run because Torch manipulates fire. Hence, Gambits cards won't do much good. Reed is arguably (and probably) the smartest human on the Marvel U. He isn't the greatest strategist but he does have the most knowledge about... knowledge. Slim might be able to play chess and call "check," maybe.

Sue would be the deciding factor if Pryde wasn't in the equation. They'd have to switch partners. Depending on who would change things greatly.

Morals on I'd give this to the X-Men because of Pryde. I see her taking someone hostage (bluffing of course) and as the FF are the first Marvel family they would summit.

However, with prep FF totally win. (+)

Kitty is taking someone hostage? Like a person off the street or a member of the FF? This makes no sense to me either way.

Why would she take a random person hostage? I meant a FF member. In the heat of the battle, everyone is fairly matched. The FF might have the advantage, in the desperate moment Pryde does a desperate act of threatening to phase through a members head if they do not summit. Do I think she's bluffing? Yes. But, I do not se the FF taking that risk.

II. If it doesn't make sense either way, why bother to ask at all?

III. It is just how I would write the story. I dislike battle thread because users take them too seriously. It can go either way depending on how the writer wants to tell the story. (+)

Two big issues with this are, first off it seems out of character for Kitty and the Fantastic Four should know this by now. Second, which member? Good luck finding Sue. Johnny can just as easily fly off. Leaving only Reed and the Thing. Both of which Sue should be able to grab with her force field and move to safety.

I can agree both sides could win but not with this plan and really, you'd have to seriously down play Sue either way.

I'm not too familiar with Sue. I can admit that. I have yet to see her do anything truly worth mentioning. I disagree that Pryde taking a FF member hostage would be out of character. She basically held Emma Frost hostage once in a direly desperate moment. Plus, I have yet to see Sue battle invisible the entire time. I don't see Sue beating Pryde. I don't see either one of the Tanks squashing the other. I don't see Gambit beating Torch. I don't see Slim beating Stretch. The FF to me have a higher chance of winning but the deciding factor for me is Sue and Pryde's battle.

I think it could happen the way I vision it but ultimately this is fiction so it doesn't matter. I can write this battle in a dozen different ways with different outcomes. (+)

Who is to say DC is wrong for what they are doing? No Marvel character is as popular as Batman.

Is this true of Spider-Man even? I've seen a heck of a lot of Spidey merch. Probably more than Batman, but I don't exactly keep track.

One could argue Spider-Man is just a popular but honestly I don't think so. I view the Batman symbol more "iconic" more recognizable than the Spider-Man symbol. I think there is more Batman merch than Spider-Man merch too. That doesn't mean Spidey has close to none, but I just think in the end there are more Batstuff than SPidey stuff. (+)

Because he's one of my favorite characters on DC. Why wouldn't I want him to have a series that focuses on him and his character development? Why wouldn't I want him to get his own Rogues Gallery? (+)

It has to be one or more of these problems

I. DC has some of the worst fans ever

II. DC is just to lazy to give other characters a chance.

III. DCs characters just suck that bad

IV. Or DC in general just sucks that bad.

V. Or they dont even care about verity in their character roster

I. Agreed XP

II. Nope not lazy just greedy scardy cats.

III. Nope. No such thing as a bad character but bad writing does exist.

IV. They don't suck they just milk bats for all he's worth.

V. Oh they care but it is a risk to promote obscure characters instead of making for sure bank with Batman. This is more so the fans fault than the company. The company wants to make money and fans (new and old) prefer to buy another bat book than give Cyborg a shot.

IMHO the general audience is in love with Tim Burton's Batman (which is arguably Frank Millers). The general audience fell in love with him and after that DC capitalized on that and milked the hell outta the franchise. They did the same thing with Superman.

Batman is the go-to-guy at DC at the moment. DC wants fans to love Green Arrow, Flash, Green Lantern, et cetera, but the general audience doesn't. Why else would they make Green Arrow on Arrow so Batman-ish?

Who is to say DC is wrong for what they are doing? No Marvel character is as popular as Batman. Therefore, Batman merch sells more than Marvel merch. The truth is it isn't Marvel vs DC it's Batman v. Superman and friends VS Marvel. (+)

Arrow is a terrible show because they took away everything that made Green Arrow kinda quirky and turned him into a cheap Batman ripoff.

Fight me.

Agreed

Any Scooby Doo show. Honestly, I can't stand it- couldn't when I was a kid I mean.

The one that popped into my head was that show LEVERAGE. I watched it while being in the hospital waiting. Terrible show. (+)
