I just wanna say this as a fan of both and as it being my post that started it all iron man won a few times doesn’t that count at all ? Although I know it’s due to comic science but hey a wins a win
Iron man is a hero
magneto is a villain.. usually.. most of the time
How often do bad guys actually pick up a win in marvel?
It’s rare. And even when they do they usually get their arse handed to them a few issues later.
When i do comic book battles i don’t look at the character. I look at the powers and abilities they have (or had). There is NOTHING Stark can do to hurt magneto. His shields can deflect nuclear blasts (and apparently survive planet destroying explosions). But there’s plenty mags can do to hurt stark.
Like i’ve said before
If a writer wants a certain character to beat another character it’ll happen. They usually just have the character who gets beat conveniently forget he can do certain things and act like a wally.
It’s called Plot Induced Stupidity
Nearly any situation should be easily solvable by The Flash, since he can move hundreds and hundreds of times faster than anything else on earth. Yet he constantly forgets to use the full potential of his superpowers until it’s time to end the story. Abilities the Flash consistently forgets he has: running faster than light, speed stealing, infinite mass punch, etc.
- … and it gets worse. On one occasion the villains have destroyed a bridge. The Flash runs to a university, teaches himself civil engineering, rushes back to the site of the collapsing bridge, scavenges for parts and builds an entire new bridge to replace the old one, all in the blink of an eye. This trope is the only reason anyone is able to beat him.
- Lampshaded in an episode of Justice League Unlimited, since it’s revealed that while the Flash can do all these things and more, he doesn’t phase through things because it’s fairly dangerous, and he can’t approach his upper limits because the plot says it would kill him. Luthor, on the other hand, isn’t so worried about it when his mind ends up in Flash’s body.
- It becomes even more ridiculous given the fact that at one point the Flash was able to (within a small fraction of a second) save a city from nuclear annihilation by carrying its half a million person population to a hill miles away one person at a time. And yet Central City’s banks still get robbed on his watch.
The flash should be able to stop all crime in the world in a micro second
The thing beat namor
PIS at it’s finest.
