    I think if Ki was plasma, there'd be a lot more fires raging around in the background when characters start fighting. I could be wrong but it seems to function more as a kinetic force. I always thought those Ki balls they threw around were volatile kinetic energy in a restraining sphere.

    Actually I'm sure of this. Krillin's thing is that he worked out how to make 'hard' Ki vibrate at cutting frequencies. That only works if he's using solid discs.

    Matter Materialization is a spell, not a ki technique - Piccolo is weird because he uses magic and ki due to spending a lot of time thinking he was a demon.

    I mean. It's still turning energy into matter. But I just thought it was important to note that it's magic.

    I usually scroll past too, but lets face it. From time to time, it stretches on forever and gets mindlessly repetitive with neither side willing to budge an inch just regurgitating the same counter argument. I can certainly understand being annoyed by the argument that never ends, never goes anywhere, and could just be the same handful of people copy pasting their first posts to each other. When we could go onto productive arguments like star wars versus star trek /runs and hides

    I think part of the appeal is that both DC and Dragonball have managed to stay internally consistent while continuing plotlines and making callbacks from 10+ years ago. It really feels rewarding to keep track of what's going on in both universes. Star Trek and Star Wars are kind of the opposite right now, with the reboots and the direction they've taken those series.

    I could do the Extended Universe versus 40K though. (don't know much about ST) Primarchs making Death Star Runs and Space Wolves jousting with Rancor-riding Force Witches sounds neat!


    E: I think the other thing is that they're kind of resting on their laurels innovation-wise. Metal Gear Uprising (the action one) packed in more Star Wars tech then the last movie, expanded on that tech, and still managed to put in more discussions on conceptual morality then the last two star trek movies. There's competition in sci-fi, and the big names haven't seemed to notice yet.

    I think it was the last round of debates is where I realized Star Gate's ships are more powerful than either of of those two universes. A half-charged ZPM can destroy our solar system and Atlantis was meant to be powered by four of them, and one was specifically dedicated to the weapons too.

    I went at it from a strange angle. I pointed out that one of the star wars empires most powerful weapons was the sun crusher. And that in deep space nine, an infiltrator managed to secretly replicate a bomb capable of doing the exact same thing on a space station operating under heavy security. Seriously, he jerry rigged a bomb equivalent to the sun crusher while trying to avoid being noticed.

    If by scraps you mean the world's most sophisticated weapons, with help of the world's top physicist, to finish a project he already been developing, then sure. I think that's why they call them superheroes.

    Nah, I think he literally meant scraps. At least, a version of him did. At least Batman started off with the bs gadgets (for most iterations) instead of growing into them (extremis....really? Let's just ignore the poisoning of such a concept since the very thing that makes you YOU should of killed you). But that's not something I want to delve too deep into.

    Speaking of...I can't help but think that Doom vs Bats would be a good fight. Maybe not for Death Battle to do, since they would ignore the planning aspect that makes both characters great...but if there was another company out there that did what Death Battle does (except not stupid) then it would be entertaining.

    Im willing to bet they'll give Mcgruff a .38 revolver, the standard for old timey detectives.

    Which will be worthless against a bear.

    Isn't Dr Doom on a completely different scale of power?
    I mean from what I understand DC tries very hard to make it so that Batman is useful even against cosmic threats, but alone vs such a strong character, it's not even a fight.

    DC constantly tries to have it's cake and eat it too with Batman. No he can't stand toe to toe against the big threats. But yes he'll bull**** a way. And this is coming from a Batman fan.

    Certain iterations of doom are stronger than others, and there have been times where he has seized ultimate power that would probably make darseid weep, but in general he is a super smart bog standard human who also usually has a talent for magic. He just makes up for it with his fancy power armor and other gadgets. Yes yes, killed a lion barehanded and naked I know.

    Okay this could actually be good, but I wonder if Thor will take it from some crazy feat he's done in his comics. Not that I'd discount Wonder Woman from having those either, but she's not a god. Thor might get some silly feats out of that that she doesn't.

    I don't know... I feel like DC tends to have their characters be more superhuman than Marvel. I'm not familiar enough with either but it's my impression. So Diana might stand a chance... a good one.

    Diana has beaten Superman before though. And it's on record that she out of anyone not named Batman is poised to do so without too much trouble. Her losing to Storm is probably going to be forgotten, and speed is the only area she completely loses out in. If they do their homework, it should be hella close.

    Wonder Woman will probably win.

    .....either that, or they're going to go for a bull explanation about how Wonder Woman's costume is metal with metal bracers and how Thor can attack with lightning and somehow easily kill her with the conductible electricity that doesn't make any sense.

    There's sort of two realms of Marvel stuff, there's the usual planetbound Marvel heroes, and there's the Cosmic stuff, with a huge gap between. DC heroes are (on average, excluding the huge number of non-powered heroes DC has comparatively) generally stronger than the former, but the latter are a whole different ball game.

    In quite a few incarnations, Thor falls into the latter category. I think he ignited a star once? Things in that general realm, anyway.

    He's like Superman in that his power scale wildly fluctuates from near-omnipotence to barely above other heroes, where Wonder Woman is to my knowledge far more consistent. By Death Battle's own rules, this makes Thor pretty much impossible for her to defeat unless they have him throw the match.

    Todays battle was super predictable. Honestly, mountain bear aside, mcgruff still wasnt going to win. He is shorter, was out weighed a few times over, out muscled a few times over, and had no weapons aside from his own teeth while smokey had even bigger teeth and claws as well as a very sharp shovel. It was quicksilver versus flash levels of obvious. Im really looking forward to the next one. I think that wonder woman has had some utterly absurd feats of her own that would put her on skyfather tier with thor when he has the "thorforce" If not a bit beyond.
