Sorry dave. I was rude.|
: Ok, no need to get personal. I wasn't meaning
: to offend you by not knowing you were a
: veteran here. Anyway, if it helps your case,
: I believe the Marvel site says that Sentry
: may be as powerful as the Phoenix force or
: something. All of these things are relative
: though. Sentry is much faster than
: Daredevil, yet DD can dodge punches from the
: Hulk. Hulk can land punches on Thor who will
: surely be able to hold his own against
: Sentry. This should mean that DD is in the
: same speed category as Sentry, but he isn't
: because it's a comic book. Bottom line is
: that if you think about it too long you
: realize that none of it makes sense.

: I agree, this is not a "vs battle"
: board. I also agree that the Sentry is more
: powerful than Iron man, and that anyone can
: lose in comics. And no, I did not take the
: (thousand) exploding suns thing literally
: either. It's just a hyperbole to make the
: character sound impressive. (Do you think
: I'm a rookie? Back off muther!) And who is
: to say that he couldn't take out a solar
: system? How would you know? That's just your
: opinion, based on no empirical evidence. And
: by the way, using your own logic, all you
: need is the correct writer, and voila, the
: Sentry would be able to take out the
: universe. Don't preach to me dude, I wasn't
: looking for your condescendence.
: What I was looking for was an opinion from
: all of comic book loving brothers and
: sisters everywhere as to whether or not you
: would like to see on paper what these guys
: can actually do. I want to know if there is
: anyone out there who feels the same way as I
: do that comics companies create these
: mega-powerful badasses, and then make them
: wear diapers.
: Just once, I'd like an intelligently written
: story as to exactly what a fight between a
: god-type and a superman-type character would
: be like if it was no holds barred. For once
: I'd like to see what it would be like if a
: writer and an artist were to OBJECTIVELY and
: impartially take such a scenario and play it
: out, without having to worry about the
: editors, and the sales figures 3 years down
: the line. I want a story where the creators
: stay true to the universe they've created.
: This is my appeal.

: I don't think this is the place for a versus
: fight. However, I will say that Sentry is
: way more powerful than Iron Man but anybody
: can lose in comics. Spiderman beats more
: powerful foes all the time just by
: outwitting them or capitalizing on certain
: weaknesses. Oh, and I don't think the
: "power of a million exploding
: suns" thing is to be taken literally.
: Sure, he's powerful, but he can't blow up
: entire solar systems.

: Someone posted an Ironman vs Sentry Fight
: earlier on this site. This is my reply.
: Iron Man is limited by the capabilities of
: tech and his intellect. I doubt that Iron
: has a suit capable of handling the potential
: amount of energy that the Sentry could
: unleash. In terms of a sheer power battle,
: there is no way that Tony could match him.
: even if he unleashed every Iron man suit
: constructed on Sentry via remote or AI
: simultaneously. Not if he had every weapons
: satelite and sytem on the planet primed and
: aimed at the Sentry, not if every energy
: capacitor on the Earth was trying to leach
: Bob's power at once. "The power of a
: exploding suns". The power/energy
: from a single star going nova is enough to
: wipe out a solar system, and the energy
: effects are felt galaxies away. Imagine a
: thousand stars exploding simultaneously.
: cannot match that level of power step for
: Tony would have to outwit him, however it
: seems that Bob isn't an idiot himself. Tony
: has that 'Bruce' manipulative quality about
: him though, that underhandedness which Bob
: might not expect.
: A far better fight would be Thor vs Sentry.
: This could be that no holds barred fight
: we've been craving for decades but that's
: never been delivered. That fight of legends
: which'll leave wet spots in fan boys jocks
: eras to come. Have we ever seen Thor or
: truly ever go all out to the max, using
: ability, power and skill at their disposal?
: No we haven't. There has always been some
: reason to hold them back. Sentry has feared
: the coming of the void, and has been scared
: go all out. Thor is limited by his sense of
: honour and nobility in that when faced with
: opponent who is less powerful, or a weaker
: fighter etc he'll fight at their level to
: it fair. Bollocks man. I finally want to see
: great artist and a great writer finally show
: us what these guys can do if they don't hold
: back. I finally want an intelligent take on
: what it means for these two powerhouses to
: unleashed. I don't want to see any excuses.
: Each of these guys could liquify a human
: a punch, could circumnavigate the globe in
: eyeblink, could destroy the planet without
: breaking a sweat. Show us man, show us. I
: to see Thor actually using his storm powers
: their potential, and the havoc it would
: when he does. I want to see him using his
: fighting skills which he has sharpened over
: thousands, if not millions or billions of
: years to their full potential. He is a
: God. A viking warrior God. God of Thunder.
: God of thunder. He is as strong as the Hulk
: (if not stronger - for those of you who
: dispute this, check up your history first...
: check the facts). He has energy absorption
: release capabilities off the charts. He can
: teleport between dimensions. If he loses his
: temper he becomes ten times more powerful.
: He's nigh invulnerable. He moves at the
: of lightning. He's stalemated Galactus, Ego
: etc. HE's a freaking viking warrior God. I
: wish that Marvel would finally write him as
: they should. Show us what this guy can do.
: Show us what the effect of a fight he's in
: does to the planet. And then we have the
: Sentry. Marvel's Superman, who makes the man
: of Steel look rusted. He too has stalemated
: Galactus. He took out Terrax as if he was a
: gnat. He took out the collective X-man,
: Avengers & FF. He's as fast as light.
: off the charts. A brawler, he seems as if
: not a skilled fighter, but s#$t he just
: to out power you.
: Thor has survived being blasted from Asgard
: Earth (by Odin), he's survived blasts that
: destroyed planets, encounters with the
: Celestials... all with no great visible harm
: to himself. His God Essence Blast,
: blasts, and vortex's are second to none in
: terms of raw power.
: I've always wanted to see proper fight
: god-like individuals like this. To date,in
: of comics, in all companies it has not
: happened. Say what you want, the writers and
: artists have just not thought it through
: thoroughly enough, have not considered all
: the physics, have not catered to all aspects
: and situations. Or they've been chicken
: Damnit show us this fight, and make it a
: minimum of twelve issues long. These are,
: none, the two most powerful hero-type
: characters in mainstream comics. Us fans
: deserve to see what their throw down would
: actually be like. Imagine a super fight
: everything was written and drawn as how it
: would happen if these characters and their
: abilities were real. Imagine the effect on
: populace. Imagine the sheer deafening sound
: this fight. Imagine the shock waves, the
: upheavel, the sonic booms. Imagine if the
: fight was taken into the depths of the ocean
: (and factors such as ocean pressure,
: earthquakes, lack of oxygen were
: imagine if the fight carried onto or into
: sun and the sheer heat and gravity were
: considered. Imagine if reflexes were truly
: considered. What about the speed, force and
: pressure of a super fast punch connecting?
: Imagine how terrified the normal folk (and
: superfolk for that matter) would be due to a
: fight that's reshaping the planet.
: Is this not what super brawls in comics
: be like?
