alloy body

My top ten most powerful animated teens.

Rules:

1. I am not including any DC, Marvel, or (Japanese) Anime teens. This is purely from  cartoon origins. If I included anime and comics, it would be riddled with them

2. They must have super powers, a super powered weapon, or in some way shape or form give them abilities beyond human powers.

3. One per franchise.

4. To be considered a teen, they must be between the ages of 12 to 19 when we are introduced to them.

5. This will be from only shows I have seen, so if a character of yours isn’t on the list I am sorry.



10. Steven Universe

Steven is the youngest member of the crystal gems (biologically 14 years old)

He is half human and half gem. While he is not much of a fighter, he is by no means weak.

He has one of the best defensive capabilities that I have seen.

His bubble shield is able to survive a spaceship crash from orbit.

His weapon of choice is a shield, that has unique properties that we have yet fully seen

He is able to heal injuries and broken gems with his spit.

He has enhanced strength and is tough enough to be thrown around by giant monsters and powerful creatures without much issue.

But the most amazing part about steven is, he is still learning. Once he unlocks his full potential it is obvious that I will have to put him higher on the list.

9. Ladybug from Miraculous:Tales of Ladybug and Chat noir.

Marinette is the heroine of Paris known as Ladybug.

With enhanced strength, speed, and durability. She is one tough customer. Her yo-yo can extend to any length, the line is unbreakable (Able to hold down a freaking T-rex) and has the ability to purify akuma.

But her greatest ability seems to be “Lucky charm”

This deus ex Machina ability allows the girl to solve a problem by giving her a random  item, which she will use to defeat her opponent in an unorthodox way.

And of course the other ability of Miraculous healing, which fixes all of the destruction that happened during the battle.

I chose her over chat noir mainly due to her having the purification ability

aside from that, they are practically equal.

8. Star butterfly from Star vs the forces of evil

Star is a 14 year old girl who happens to be princess of the kingdom of mewni

who happens to hail from another dimension.

She is constantly battling monsters that want her wand.

While I have her very low on the list, she does have potential to one day be near the top 5 of this list.

Why you ask.

Because of her magic wand!

The exact amount of power she possesses is unknown. It definitely not something one dismisses. It is strong enough to conjure up an assortment of pain, can alter ones anatomy,and even cause untold destruction in the wrong hands.

It only gets more powerful, I hope to see what it is really capable of.


7. Randy Cunningham: RC9GN

This teen ninja is responsible for protecting norrisvile from monsters, robots, evil wizards, and more.

With an arsenal of weapons that range from sharp to deadly stealthy to just plain ridiculous. The guy has almost as many weapons as batman!

But of course, he also has enhanced senses, limited elemental powers such as the ninja air fist, the tengu fire ball and more.

He also has super strength, enhanced speed, agility, reflexes, the whole typical hero stuff.

But This guy has a few more tricks up his sleeves, giving him a slight edge over the previous entrees.

6. Jake long, From American dragon: Jake long

Being the magical protector of New york city

Jake long has the power of dragons

With senses enhanced by his dragon transformation.

His senses are head and shoulders above the competition.

He can fly over 200-300 mph,

Strong enough to live 5 to 25 tons

breathes fire (Both as a rapper (Jk), and as a dragon)

claws that can rip through steal.

durability that makes being knocked through a brick wall an “inconvenience”

This dragon is tough and hard to beat.

5. Danny Phantom:

“Yo Danny phantom he was just 14

his parents built a strange machine,

designed to view a world unseen.”

But then s*** happened, and Danny fenton is now Danny phantom, protector of Amity park.

Having a ton of abilities Danny is one tough foe.

He can over shadow people,

shoot ecto blasts,

create energy shields

turn invisible, and intangible

Strong enough to pick up a bus with ease.

can fly over 150 miles per hour.

has cryokinisis (Ice powers)

can replicate himself making himself 4x as deadly!

And of course his most powerful ability

the Ghostly wail.

His last resort shout is strong enough to devastate a city.

While it was close between him and Jake,

Danny has the upper hand in terms of powers

4. Korra from Legend of Korra.

The latest avatar is certainly something. (Aside from being amazingly beautiful and powerful)

The protector of the world.

This girl has fought spirits, benders, Giant robots! the whole shabang

She can manipulate, fire, earth, water and Air with ease.

She even picked up metal and spirit bending!

But her most powerful form is her Avatar state.

In this state, she is powerful enough to stop city destroying lasers, level armies, fight embodiments of chaos!.

This girl is a beast and I am giving her this spot because honestly, Very few can top this chick.

3. XJ9 or Jenny from my life is a teenage robot.

The robotic teen protector of Tremorton.

Jenny is a powerful robot that protects the city and the world from city destroying monsters, robots, aliens, and robot Aliens!

She has the strength of 1million and 70 men. Which Is tough to calculate, but it is known she can easily lift well over 100 tons with ease.

Fly at high speeds,

has a weapon arsenal so insane it could dwarf the fire power of most militaries!

Her titanium alloy body makes her tough enough to survive most attacks without much damage.

she is as smart as a super computer.

Has more types of visions then the man of steel himself.

Has destroyed Planet destroying meteors with only slight difficulty.

This girl is tougher then she looks.

2. Ben ten from ben ten, alien force, omniverse and etc.

A teenager with the powers of every alien in the known universe.

The omnitrix is by far one of the best weapons in the existence of the world.

Ben tennyson is a 16 year old kid who got the coolest gift in existence 

a watch that can turn him into any alien for about 10 minutes at a time (Unless plot says other wise or some sh*t says he needs longer then that).

If I were to describe all of his powers and abilities, 

It would take forever!

The kid just has all the powers!

If you can think of it, one of his aliens probably has it.

He is one of the two most broken heroes in cartoons.

but the question is.

Who is number one?

1. Rex Salazar from Generator rex.

Now I know what you are thinking.

“How can this guy top  Mr. All aliens ever?”

Well it is actually really simple.

He actually became a god for a short time.

Now before then, he probably would have been on par with korra.

Being able to turn any part of himself into a kick butt machine

technomancing

curing evo controlled living creatures.

enhanced durability and healing.

But what made this guy go beyond all of that was godhood.

He attained five meta-nanites that gave him god like powers.

Which he used to cure all of the evos. And after that he turned it off for good.

What makes him different from ben is, while Ben has a god like alien as well, ben is limited by two other beings that make it near impossible to do anything with it.

Rex had full control. This made him superior to ben.

That is why Rex is number one.

(let me know your thoughts on this. Did I miss any other cartoons?)

Races of Destiny: The Vex

“People do not want to understand time because it is linked to their own mortality.” - David Lewis Anderson

The Vex are the marriage of the cruel nature of an organic intelligence within the tireless and cold frame of a machine. These creatures have mastered time travel and invade the present day Solar System from their own time. Perhaps they seek to conquer the past in order to escape the inevitable destruction of an ageing cosmos. They enter out time zone through great warp gates in an attempt to conquer the system.

The bodies of these creatures are comprised of an unknown alloy which resembles brass. Many have large heads that fan out into a great crest below which a single red optic stares unblinkingly out at their victim. They have a complex cultural history and many of their rituals and ceremonies are baffling to outsiders. All attempts to communicate with the Vex have thus far failed.

The main stronghold of the Vex in the present day is located on the jungle world of Venus, Vex architecture is comprised of numerous cubes of varying size which are most likely comprised of similar metal alloys to their bodies.

Different classes of Vex soldier are designated due to their physical differences.

Goblin: common footsoldiers who defeat their opponents with sheer numbers. These creatures have large crested heads.

Hobgoblin: similar in design to the Goblins however these creatures are larger and have long tails.

Minotaur: the largest of the walking Vex, they have broad shoulders and a set of three eyes. Larger minotaurs are tasked with guarding the Warp Gates and are given the title of Gate Lord.

The Vex also employ aerial unites to the battlefield.

Hydra: segmented aerial centipedes, each segment bears a turret with devastating firepower, hydras also use protective shields to defend themselves from incoming fire.

Harpies: smaller fliers that continuously move in and out of combat seemingly using hit and run tactics. Harpies will pause to open their shells revealing a mass of filaments before attacking.

Citroën produced the BX Sport from 1985 to 1987. During this period, Citroën manufactured 7,500 BX Sports; 2,500 in the first series, then an extra 5,000 due to its sales success. Rated at 126 PS (93 kW) at 5800 rpm and equipped with dual twin-barrel carburettors, the BX Sport was the most powerful BX in production at that time. The engine modifications, including a reshaped combustion chamber and larger valves, were developed by famous French tuner Danielson. It also stood out with its unique body kit, alloy wheels (later available on the GTi), a unique dashboard and Pullman interior. The body kit included a rear wing, side skirts, and fender extensions that added 10 cm to each side of the car, in order to accommodate the larger wheels. The car was only available in LHD, so it was not sold in the United Kingdom. Period road tests complimented the ride quality (as usual with Citroëns) but complained that the driving characteristics were not all that sporty as a result, even though the suspension had also been modified.

The BX GT was launched in 1985 and featured a 1.9 litre Peugeot-sourced engine, essentially the Sport engine with only one twin choke carburettor. Max power was 105 PS (77 kW). That same year, Citroën produced a “Digit” model, which was based on the BX GT. It featured a digital instrument cluster and an onboard computer. Citroën only produced 4,000 BX Digits in 1985.

Citroën entered Group B rallying with the BX in 1986. The specially designed rally BX 4TC bore little resemblance to the standard BX. It had a very long nose because the engine (a turbocharged version of Chrysler Europe’s Simca Type 180 engine) was mounted longitudinally unlike in the regular BX. The engine was downsleeved to 2,141.5 cc (from 2,155 cc) to stay under the three-litre limit after FIA’s multiplication factor of 1.4 was applied. The rally version of the BX also featured the unique hydropneumatic suspension, and the five-speed manual gearbox from Citroën SM. Because of the Group B regulations, 200 street versions of the 4TC also had to be built, with a 200 PS (147 kW) at 5,250 rpm version of the N9TE engine.

The 4TC was not successful in World Rally Championship competition, its best result being a sixth place in the 1986 Swedish Rally. The 4TC only participated in three rallies before the Group B class was banned in late 1986, following the death of Henri Toivonen in his Lancia Delta S4 at the Tour de Corse Rally. Already discouraged by the car’s poor performance in motorsport and the demise of Group B, Citroën was only able to sell 62 road-going 4TCs; build quality and reliability problems led Citroën to buy back many of these 4TCs for salvage and destruction. With only a fraction of the original 200 examples remaining, the 4TC is now highly sought-after.

An uprated version of the BX GT, the BX19 GTi was fitted with an 1.9 litre eight-valve fuel injected engine producing 122 PS (90 kW) (this engine also fitted to the Peugeot 405 SRi, and was very similar to the engine also fitted to the 205 GTi, however the BX19 GTi and Peugeot 405 SRi used a different inlet manifold and cylinder head), a spoiler and firmer suspension spheres/anti-roll bar than the standard model; it could reach 198 km/h. There was also a special export model, the BX16 GTi, using the 113 PS (83 kW) XU5JA engine from the Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6. Top speed was 194 km/h.

In May 1987, a 16 Valve version of the GTi was launched. This was the first mass-produced French car to be fitted with a 16-valve engine. A DOHC twin-exhaust port cylinder head, based on that of the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Group B rally car was bolted to an uprated version of the 1905cc XU9 8v alloy engine block as fitted to the BX GTi and Peugeot 205 GTi. The result was the XU9J4; a naturally aspirated 1.9 litre engine, (also fitted to the phase 1 Peugeot 405 Mi16) producing 160 bhp (120 kW) and 177 N·m (131 lb·ft) of torque. It produced a specific output of 84 bhp/litre, which for a fixed cam-timing, naturally aspirated engine was fairly impressive at the time. This helped rocket the BX to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.4 seconds and then 160 km/h (99 mph) in 19.9 seconds before finally reaching a top speed of 220 km/h (140 mph). Anti-lock brakes were fitted as standard. Its side skirts made it easily recognizable from all other BX models. In 1990, the facelift of the 16 Valve gave the car a new lease of life. The updated car came with new fibreglass bumpers, anthracite painted wheels, smoked taillight lenses, and a redesigned rear spoiler. These cosmetic changes made the car look even more distinctive from other BXs. There were also a few subtle changes made to the car’s performance, the most noticeable being harder suspension and a thicker anti-roll bar, which improved handling. The BX 16 Valve was faster around a race-track than the “in house” competitor Peugeot 405 Mi16.

Bugatti Type 57sc Atlantic Coupé, 1935. Designed by  by Jean Bugatti, son of founder Ettore, the Atlantic Coupé was based on the Aérolithe concept which used Elektron (a magnesium alloy) and Duralumin (an aluminium alloy) for its body panels. Therefore, the body panels were riveted externally, creating the signature seam. The production Atlantics used plain aluminium, but the dorsal seams were retained for style. Only 4 Atlantic coupés were every made, of which 2 have survived to the present day. Most recently one was sold for a sum believed to be $40 million

The Signs as Mordin Solus quotes
  • Aries: Later, better. Think I’ve cured Joker’s condition. Simple treatment would… No, no, no, no. Would cause liver failure. Nevermind. Start from scratch.
  • Taurus: Bit of a cloaca, though. Loved his speeches. Hold the line! Personally prefer to get job done and go home.
  • Gemini: Perhaps later. Trying to determine how scale-itch got onto Normandy. Sexually-transmitted disease. Only carried by varren. Implications unpleasant.
  • Cancer: Ah, puberty ritual. Common among species with hormone-driven reproductive urges.
  • Leo: Some other time. About to test new bio-weapon. Not on us, of course. Didn’t think I had to specify, but Joker got nervous.
  • Virgo: Might go somewhere sunny. Sit on beach, look at ocean, collect seashells.
  • Libra: Females were obviously dying. Barbaric experiments. Maelon’s fault. My responsibility to fix. Need to save them. No more… No more dead.
  • Scorpio: Aware that you come by a great deal. Have had other species become attracted to me before. Awkward. Not interested.
  • Sagittarius: Alloy of EDI’s body not like organic tissue. Could cause unintentional damage. Recommend pillows, cushions, possibly gel packs.
  • Capricorn: Life is a negotiation. We all want. We all give to get what we want.
  • Aquarius: Flammable! Or inflammable! Forget which! Doesn’t matter!
  • Pisces: Would have liked to run tests on the seashells.
  • Mordin: Certainly possible. Would require strengthening exercises. Get muscles to support weaker bone structure.
  • Joker: Right. Yeah, I can do that.
  • Mordin: Alloy of EDI’s body not like organic tissue. Could cause unintentional damage. Recommend pillows, cushions, possibly gel packs.
  • Joker: Okay, that’s a little weirder, but… yeah alright. Cushions.
  • Mordin: Positioning critical to success. Could forward EDI charts, videos with relevant data.
  • Joker: No, no no! Let’s uh… EDI’s pretty busy with, you know, stuff. Let’s… uh send that to me. You’re not gonna tell anyone about this, right? Like Shepard? Shepard doesn’t really need to know.
  • Mordin: Guarantee Shepard won’t learn about it from me.
  • Joker: She’s standing right there, isn’t she?
Locker Room

I couldn’t help myself after seeing the Love Me Right teasers and MV, so here’s a mini-scenario with football!xiumin!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The air was hot and thick with irritation and perspiration. Grass-stained jerseys were thrown haphazardly on the floor and atop benches. The boys sat dejectedly around the room, helmets set aside as they wallowed in their recent loss. You walked in, taking notice of their disheartened expressions as you leaned on the old dirtied lockers.

“It’s just the first game of the season,” you coaxed.

“Exactly! It’s the first game of the season and we managed to screw it up,” the bronze quarterback complained, kicking and denting the old metal, a cloud of dust rising in its midst.

The boys took off their various padding, stripping themselves of the bulky material. You teetered on the balls of your feet, knowing that words weren’t enough to console them against the looming thought of their coach barking at them even harsher than usual and extra hours under the blazing sun at their next practice. One by one, they sulked out of the locker room until only your boyfriend, Minseok, was left. You took a seat next to him, playfully nudging his shoulder.

“You still have the rest of the season ahead of you.”

“I guess so,” he responded, seemingly absent-minded.

You nuzzled the base of his jawline, placing little kisses on his exposed skin. “Hey, cheer up.”

He couldn’t help but smirk, turning his head and easily capturing your lips in a kiss. He shifted his legs in order to pull you closer, your arms and legs automatically wrapping around his muscular torso. He leaned into you, tongue darting in between your lips as you sighed in pleasure, allowing him to carry you, your back now touching the locker doors. The flickering fluorescent lights overhead allowed the room to be overtaken by a hazy red glow from the exit sign up above, only adding to the vividly passionate atmosphere that was surrounding you two. He had you up against the rickety lockers, one hand pulling your thigh to his hip and the other tugging at the hem of your shirt. His lips never left yours, desperately sucking on your lower lip as he let out his frustrations from earlier that night. You didn’t even care that it was Friday night and you were here in the cramped football locker room after hours, trapped against cold metal alloy and Minseok’s sweaty body because you realized that yes, this was exactly what you wanted tonight. You nodded slightly, giving him the green light to take your shirt off. He was about to when a sharp, ear-splitting whistle broke the two of you apart.

“KIM MINSEOK!” Coach Lee’s booming voice reverberated around the room, surely even making the lockers shake. He was red-faced, huffing and slowly lowering his whistle. You froze in place but Minseok pulled you behind him, as if metaphorically trying to protect you. “You would think by the way that you had Miss ______ pinned that you’d make a better offensive lineman than you actually are. Now both of you get out before I report you to the principal.”

You rushed out of there, pushing the heavy wooden door and escaping out onto the field with Minseok close behind. Your heart was racing, a mix of terror and excitement sending tingles all throughout your body. You made eye contact with Minseok, and suddenly, you both burst into laughter. He shook his head, gesturing for you to follow him back to his car.

“My place?” you suggested, though you knew it was what he had already planned. He kept one hand on the wheel, the other holding yours as he began the drive back.

“You know, I wouldn’t mind losing a game or two if it means we get to do this every time,” he commented, earning a playful roll of the eyes from yourself and a small smile when you thought of the wild night still to come.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Note: You’ll definitely be seeing more football!exo in the future. On Saturday, I’ll be uploading a very special scenario that you won’t want to miss. It’s a new AU and a new series, so follow me to stay updated and I hope you all like it. Next week I’ll start posting the long-awaited requests, so thank you for your patience and continued support! ~

While most phones come equipped to take photos, they don’t come close to the same experience of using a dedicated camera. The distinct feel and added control are just some reasons to keep a compact camera in your carry. Fujifilm has been a huge player in the mirrorless camera game over the past few years, and they’ve sent us their X30 to review, confident that it can fill that need for a small, capable on-the-go camera. In this review, we’ll put that to the test — but we won’t be doing any extreme pixel peeping. Instead, we’ll explore how the X30 measures up as an everyday carry camera.

The Specs

External image
  • 12MP 2/3” XTRANS CMOS Sensor
  • 4x Optical Zoom Lens with f2.0-2.8 aperture, 28-112mm equivalent
  • Macro, Super Macro, Scene shooting modes
  • Full Manual Controls
  • 3” Tilt LCD
  • Built in Wifi for easy sharing

Design, Fit, and Finish

The Fuji X30 is a compelling blend of retro design and modern technology. Magnesium alloy construction of the body leads to an incredibly sturdy camera that feels great in the hand. The dials and control rings are all crafted of metal with precision ridges for tactile control. Nothing on the camera wobbles — the dials and buttons feel deliberate and solid, as they should be. Every press on the customizable buttons are affirmed with a satisfying “click,” nothing mushy here.

External image

The electronic viewfinder is the largest in its class, providing an excellent field of view and accurate color representation. Settings, a shooting grid, and focus confirmation are all easy to read on the display. Flipping the orientation of the camera changes the viewfinder as well, making it even easier to see what’s going on. The large viewfinder made it easy to frame out shots and it is hugely helpful to know exactly what the exposure settings are going to look like before pressing the shutter.

External image

The camera is fitted with a comfortable, ergonomic molded rubber grip section. Throughout the course of using the camera, I never felt as if it were going to slip out of my grasp. I brought the camera with me to New York City and the grip was easy to maintain with one hand. Overall, the design, fit and finish of the X30 are superb. It feels like a solid camera that will have no problem bouncing around in a bag or being worn around your wrist for countless days of shooting.

Operation and Performance

I really like how the X30 can be as easy or as complex to use as you want it to be. The camera can be set to fully automatic to capture fleeting moments, but has full manual controls to get a shot exactly the way you planned it. The menu system is easy to pick up on and the quick menu (with a dedicated “Q” button) is fully customizable to suit your shooting style. Through most of the testing, I shot on aperture priority mode. This leaves the shutter speed up to the camera and the aperture setting up to me. Most photos were properly metered and exposed, leaving me happy with the results.

External image

The zoom lens is equivalent to 28-112mm on the full frame scale. The low aperture lens shoots effectively in low light and can produce some nice bokeh (background blur with your subject in focus). At the wide end, it’s great for landscapes, architecture, and getting pictures of large groups. The middle range is ideal for portraits, and the long range end of the zoom can get up close to something that you might not be physically able to. The unique image stabilization mechanism ensures that most shots are in focus and tack sharp. I found this particularly useful in low light settings. When taking pictures at night, the darker conditions usually resulted in a lower shutter speed. The image stabilization allowed for lower shutter speeds when hand holding the camera, eliminating the need for a tripod.

External image

Fuji’s mirrorless cameras have earned so many accolades for their straight-out-of-camera JPEG image quality. This is due in part to the on-board film simulation that emulates Fuji’s film stock. There are several modes and all of them have their place (Provia is standard, Velvia is vidid, Astia is soft, etc.). I personally prefer the muted tones of the Classic Chrome setting. The in-camera processing ability lessens the need for extensive post-processing and makes for a quicker, easier to share, and more fun photography experience. Post processing at a computer is not my favorite part about taking pictures. The X30’s straight out of camera JPEGs cut down on the need to spend extra time in front of a screen, leaving you with more time for shooting. To see some samples of the X30’s image quality and in-camera processing at work, check out the photos I shot with the X30 in my review of the Spyderco Dice.

External image

The tilting screen is useful in a variety of shooting situations. No more laying on the ground to frame out a shot or standing awkwardly on a chair to get that perfect pocket dump photo. The hinge mechanism is robust and the screen locks back into the body with ease. Once you’ve taken a photo, it’s easy to share straight to your smart phone or computer. Simply press the dedicated wifi button on the camera, connect to the created network from your device, and beam the photos over.

Sometimes it’s just as fun to share the photos as they are to take, and the built-in wifi is a welcomed and useful feature. This was especially useful on my trip to the city. I was able to shoot during the day, go through the photos on the train, and the share the images I liked by the time I got home.

Carry Options

Fuji’s X30 is much easier to carry around than even the smallest digital SLR. The camera is compact, ergonomic, and easy to use. The X30 can fit in a jacket or cargo pocket, but don’t expect it to slip comfortably into your jeans. I’ve been carrying the camera in both my bag and jacket and haven’t found it to be a burden. The lens does stick out from the camera a bit, so be careful of snagging it when placing the camera in a pocket or bag.

External image

While not the best option for a truly pocketable camera, the X30 is excellent to keep in your EDC bag. It’s light enough to not weigh you down, and the performance and versatility of the zoom lens will come in handy in lots of shooting scenarios. The X30 has a ring on either side of the body for strap attachment, either a neck or wrist strap can easily be used. Due to the smaller size of the camera, I prefer a simple wrist strap. Holding and using the camera is easy with one hand. The thumb and finger grips are comfortably shaped and encourage a firm grip.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Great image quality straight out of camera
  • Sturdy construction
  • Wifi for easy sharing
  • Tilting screen makes composing easy

Cons:

  • Not truly pocketable
  • No dedicated charger, must charge battery in camera

Conclusion

I can honestly say I’m a big fan of the X30. It’s been fun to shoot with for the month. The X Series by Fuji is an optimal blend of retro styling and cutting edge camera technology that results in a well-built, fun to use camera. Fuji has managed to retain the spirit of shooting with a dedicated camera in the X30. The electronic viewfinder is crystal clear, the build quality is top-notch, and the price is right.

External image

For $599, you get a lot of camera. I personally EDC the X100T, the X30’s bigger (and more expensive) brother, and both cameras are equally fun and easy to use. It’s been hard to pick out anything truly negative about the X30, and I’ve been trying. For a point and shoot camera, the X30 delivers on ease of use, image quality, and speed of sharing images. With street prices dipping as low as $500 for this dedicated EDC point and shoot, the X30 delivers a lot of camera for the money.

BUY ($500)
