why i'm shitting on wonder woman already. a fat rant.
The whole point of wonder woman is that shes hench as fuck.
I don’t mean toned I’m talking about Serena Williams, female body builders, women in the army.
Wonder Womans power is THERE not in OH WOW LOOK AT HER MANIPULATION BUT LITERALLY SHE IS BUILT TO KILL AND TO DEFEND.
I don’t want another female superhero who looks dainty with a bit of muscle. You can have smaller built superheroes like RDJ and Ant Man then HENCH like all of the Chris’. but for women…they all look pretty much the same..
BEFORE I START I LOVE THE LOOK OF HER, GADOT SEEMS TO HAVE THE “you really think this impresses me, me? An amazon?!* look down. I just wanted her more .. .bigger.
The point of Wonder Woman is that she is able to look imposing. Not stealthy deadly like Black Widow or Wasp. I mean you look at her and you shit yourself.
And she doesn’t.
I wanted her muscles to be a part of her beauty.
But you know DC fanboys need something to wank over..
Strength: Most of cyborgs body parts have been replaced with advanced prosthetics giving him super strength.
Intelligence: In addition to his mechanical enhancements, Stone possesses an “exceptionally gifted” level of intelligence and a genius-level intellect; his IQ has been measured at 170.
Speed: Stone possessed a degree of superspeed and could leap great distances.
Endurance: Because most of his body parts have been replaced with advanced prosthetics he has been granted superhuman endurance and superhuman durability mostly do to his bones being reinforced with molybdenum-steel.
Equipment and Weapons: Large portions of Victor Stone’s body have been replaced by advanced mechanical parts (hence the name Cyborg), granting him superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and flight. His mechanically-enhanced body, much of which is metallic, is far more durable than a normal human body. Cyborg’s internal computer system can interface with external computers. Other features include an electronic ‘eye’ which replicates vision, but at a superhuman level. His mechanical parts contain a wide variety of tools and weapons, such as a grappling hook/line and a finger-mounted laser. Perhaps his most frequently-used weapon is his sound amplifier (often referred to as his “white sound blaster” in the comic books; the Teen Titans animated series calls it a “sonic cannon”), which can be employed at various settings either to stun the ears of his foes or to deliver concentrated blasts of sound potent enough to shatter rock or deform steel. Cyborg has tinkered over time with his cybernetic parts, enhancing his functions and abilities to levels beyond those set by his father. One feature that sets him apart from the “mass production” version built by Project M is a self-repair system, able to flawlessly repair the mechanical parts of his body, no matter how worn out they are, and even improve the health of the still biological parts to an unknown degree. The tech he uses includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Cybernetics: Cyborg possesses cybernetic enhancements that provide superhuman strength, endurance and durability. Cyborg can also interface with computers. Built into his body-armor are an infrared eye with HUD, a bionic ear that allows you to hear sounds from long distance, computer generator, sound amplifier (similar to a sonic cannon), and special programming adapters that allow him to interface with other body extensions. Body Resistance: The nature of Cyborg’s body provides him with natural body armor offering resistance versus physical damage and energy attacks. Superhuman Strength: At optimal capacity, Vic can lift/press in excess of several tons. Cyborg’s upper strength limits have fluctuated with upgrades to his systems over time. Superhuman Speed: He possessed a degree of superspeed and could leap great distances. Superhuman Endurance Superhuman Durability: His bones are reinforced with molybdenum-steel. Sensor Systems Computer Interfacing Flight: Powered by rocket boosters. Jump Jets: In place for leaping great distances, to cut down on relying on Boom Tubes due to the problems they caused in the past. Technomorphing: Can physically assimilate other pieces of technology into himself as well as freely alternate his cybernetic body at will. Technopathy Shapeshifting Heart Attack: Cyborg also adds the ability to emit an EMP blast to disable electronics fifty meters away from him. The Grid: A program Vic and Batman created to help him better manage the constant flow of uploading and downloading data he receives on a constant basis. It acts as his solipisistic engram into the Cyberverse/Digitalverse where he can better prioritize and interface with the worldwide networking system, focusing on high-priority items and filter out other received data. Boom Tube Manipulation: Due to absorbing and interfacing with a Mother box, Cyborg can open a Boom Tube extra-dimensional point-to-point travel portal to teleport him and his companions, once having opened up multiple boom tubes in order to banish Darkseid and his invading hordes back to Apokolips. However, when transporting groups, his transporter can get overloaded, roughly one out of every 1,000 times and ends up transporting all those teleported to Apokolips. As part of the events of the Throne of Atlantis Aquaman crossover, Cyborg’s lungs were replaced by cybernetic lungs that allow him to breathe underwater. Technomorphic Evolution: after having a catastrophic run in with the techbreakers from a parallel earth and dying of his injuries. The alien technology composing his frame some how kicked in and resurrected him vastly upgrading his technology and integrating his ruined organic parts with the machinery composing his cybernetics. An adversary of the League once stated his technology was steadily evolving causing a host of new functions to activate. Regeneration Resurrection Mechanical function Enhancement After he lost his original cybernetic enhancements which became Grid at the end of the Trinity War arc, during the Forever Evil event, he has his father Silas Stone and Dr. Morrow help create a new cybernetic body. As explained in that issue, by cutting down on strength, speed, and stamina, Cyborg’s new cybernetic body looks slimmer in appearance as Victor describes looking more human compared to looking like a tank. It is unknown whether or not Cyborg had re-integrated the technology stripped from him after Grid’s defeat. After a very Nasty run in with alt. universe invaders calling themselves the techbreakers Cyborg’s systems had undergone a complete systems overhaul causing a new operating system to come online restoring him to life and healing his damaged circuitry as well as reintegrating his ruined flesh into it, turning him into a full on Techno-Organic being.
Skill: Cyborg is highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat
Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark
Height: 6’ 1"; in armor 6’ 6"
Weight: 225 lbs; in armor 425 lbs
Strength: Via the powered armored suit, Tony has superhuman strength and durability
Intelligence and Skill: Tony has a genius-level intellect; is a highly proficient scientist, engineer, and businessperson; and is an expert hand-to-hand combatant. Tony Stark is an inventive genius whose expertise in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science rivals that of Reed Richards, Hank Pym, and Bruce Banner, and his expertise in electrical engineering and mechanical engineering surpasses even theirs. He is regarded as one of the most intelligent characters in the Marvel Universe. He graduated with advanced degrees in physics and engineering at the age of 17 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and further developed his knowledge ranging from artificial intelligence to quantum mechanics as time progressed. His expertise extends to his ingenuity in dealing with difficult situations, such as difficult foes and deathtraps, in which he is capable of using available tools, including his suit, in unorthodox but effective ways. He is well respected in the business world, able to command people’s attention when he speaks on economic matters, having over the years built up several multimillion-dollar companies from virtually nothing. He is noted for the loyalty he commands from and returns to those who work for him, as well as for his business ethics. Thus he immediately fired an employee who made profitable, but illegal, sales to Doctor Doom. He strives to be environmentally responsible in his businesses.At a time when Stark was unable to use his armor for a period, he received some combat training from Captain America and has become physically formidable on his own when the situation demands it. In addition, Stark possesses great business and political acumen. On multiple occasions he reacquired control of his companies after losing them amid corporate takeovers. Due to his membership in the Illuminati, Iron Man was given the Space Infinity Gem to safeguard. It allows the user to exist in any location (or all locations), move any object anywhere throughout the universe and warp or rearrange space.
Powers: After being critically injured during a battle with the Extremis-enhanced Mallen, Stark injects his nervous system with modified techno-organic virus-like body restructuring machines (the Extremis process). By rewriting his own biology, Stark is able to save his life, gain an enhanced healing factor, and partially merge with the Iron Man armor, superseding the need for bulky, AI-controlled armors in favor of lighter designs, technopathically controlled by his own brain. His enhanced technopathy extends to every piece of technology, limitless and effortlessly due to his ability to interface with communication satellites and wireless connections to increase his “range”. Some components of the armor-sheath are now stored in Tony’s body, able to be recalled, and extruded from his own skin, at will.During the “Secret Invasion” storyline the Extremis package is catastrophically shut down by a virus, forcing him again to rely on the previous iteration of his armor, and restoring his previous limitations. Furthermore, Osborn’s takeover of most of the few remaining Starktech factories, with Ezekiel Stane systematically crippling the others, limits Tony to the use of lesser, older and weaker armors. After being forced to “wipe out” his brain to prevent Norman Osborn from gaining his information, Tony Stark is forced to have a new arc reactor, of Rand design installed in his chest. The process greatly improves his strength, stamina and intellect. The procedure left him with virtually no autonomic functions: as his brain was stripped of every biological function, Tony is forced to rely on a digital backup of his memories (leaving him with severe gaps and lapses in his long-term memory) and on software routine in the arc reactor for basic stimuli reaction, such as blinking and breathing. The Bleeding Edge package of armor and physical enhancement is now equal in power, if not a more advanced, version of the old Extremis tech.
Tech and Weapons: Contrary to its appearance, most of Stark’s armors are not rigid metal suits, like a medieval knight’s. His standard armor suit consists of approximately two million grain-of-sand-sized discrete units, which are shaped to have as large a surface as possible to optimize their effectiveness. The basis of the suit’s structural integrity is the powerful force field which permeates the armor’s “cells”, as well as the whole configuration when active. Each of the “cells” is a tiny unit in its own right, contributing energy and computing power to the entire armor; this is also why the suit can remain functional even after having sustained considerable damage. The basic principle of the suit is holistic; each part contains the whole, as it were. When inactive, the entire suit can collapse on the microscopic level, the cells “folding” in on themselves to take up a smaller volume, like a three-dimensional accordion pleat.While Stark designs every aspect of the armor, the complexity of the design requires that production be entirely automated. Each cell is constructed by using specialized bacteria — the bacteria consume minute amounts of specific metals, arrange themselves on pre-tagged areas on the “chip wafer”, then die, leaving a very small amount of iron, or gold, or gallium-arsenide. This method allows great precision in determining the thickness of circuitry.All the details of the armor’s construction listed above are laid out in the Iron Manual. Some armor which appeared after publication of the Iron Manual may use entirely different methods of construction. Iron Man possesses powered armor that gives him superhuman strength and durability, flight, and an array of weapons. The armor is invented and worn by Stark (with occasional short-term exceptions). Other people who have assumed the Iron Man identity include Stark’s long-time partner and best friend James Rhodes; close associates Harold “Happy” Hogan; Eddie March; (briefly) Michael O'Brien and Riri Williams.The weapons systems of the suit have changed over the years, but Iron Man’s standard offensive weapons have always been the repulsor rays that are fired from the palms of his gauntlets. Other weapons built into various incarnations of the armor include: the uni-beam projector in its chest; pulse bolts (that pick up kinetic energy along the way; so the farther they travel, the harder they hit); an electromagnetic pulse generator; and a defensive energy shield that can be extended up to 360 degrees. Other capabilities include: generating ultra-freon (i.e., a freeze-beam); creating and manipulating magnetic fields; emitting sonic blasts; and projecting 3-dimensional holograms (to create decoys).In addition to the general-purpose model he wears, Stark has developed several specialized suits for space travel, deep-sea diving, stealth, and other special purposes. Stark has modified suits, like the Hulkbuster heavy armor. The Hulkbuster armor is composed of add-ons to his so-called modular armor, designed to enhance its strength and durability enough to engage the Incredible Hulk in a fight. A later model, designed for use against Thor, is modeled on the Destroyer and uses a mystical power source. Stark develops an electronics pack during the Armor Wars that, when attached to armors that use Stark technologies, will burn out those components, rendering the suit useless. This pack is ineffective on later models. While it is typically associated with James Rhodes, the War-Machine armor began as one of Stark’s specialty armors.The most recent models of Stark’s armor, beginning with the Extremis Armor, are now stored in the hollow portions of Stark’s bones, and the personal area networking implement used to control it is implanted into his forearm, and connected directly to his central nervous system.The Extremis has since been removed, and he now uses more conventional armors. Some armors still take a liquid form, but are not stored within his body. His Endo-Sym Armor incorporates a combination of the liquid smart-metal with the alien Venom symbiote, psionically controlled by Stark.Post-Secret Wars, Stark uses a more streamlined suit of armor that can practically 'morph’ into other armors or weapons.
Undoubtedly Iron Man takes this fight. Tony has a score of 1,275,777,957 having only a .02% chance of losing. The man has an army of near indestructible armor each with armed to the teeth. Iron Man’s score is a lot less then other times I’ve calculated it and this is mostly because of the new way I’ve been measuring characters. I no longer take a character at their average level with all their most common stuff. I now take a character at their average level and give them more or less points depending on how easy it is for them to be better or worse on a moments notice. Same goes with their equipment, I now give them points for what they are most likely to have on them and then some more depending on how easy it is for them to get new stuff. This is why Iron Man is so damn unstoppable, he’s pretty hard to take down as is but the fact that he can have pretty much any suit he needs in just a few moments, boom, un-freakin’-stoppable…well almost.
Next fight we will likely see Black Panther.
Have a fight you’d like to see? Let me know in any way you can. No really, who do you think would be a good match?
“Wade heads up!” you call and kick a sniper off the building plummeting towards him.
“I always love the gifts you give babe!” Wade yells and slices the sniper in half above him.
“Well of course” you grin and jump off the building. Your ankles scream out and one twists when you land but minutes later they’ve healed themselves.
“You are so hot when you do that whole jumping of buildings thing. It really makes me want to jump you right here and now” Wade admits. You smirk and kiss him.
“I love it when you ramble” you murmur and wrap and arm around his waist. Wade does the same in turn and together you waltz over dead bodies and sliced bullets.
“Wanna get some Taco Bell and watch a rom com later? I’ll complain the entire time that it sucks but secretly enjoy it. I really love romance when I’m with you.” You chuckle and playfully hit his muscular chest.
For awhile that’s how things were. You and Wade going at it alone being the best vigilantes the world had.
Then he disappeared like a whisper in the night.
“Wade I brought Chinese!” you announce walking into your shared apartment. It’s dark so you flip on the light. The first thing you see is blood everywhere.
The table is flipped, chairs sliced to bits, lamp shattered, bloody handprints and footprints cover the floor and walls, and the window into your bedroom is broken inwards.
“WADE! Oh my god WADE!” you screens and tear trough the apartment looking for dim desperately. He is nowhere to be found. “WADE!” you yell out the window and into the cold night.
There’s no response and you break. He’s gone. Your Wade is gone. Probably dead based on the blood. You fell utterly hopeless and crushed. Your heart is gone.
That night you screamed until your voice cut off.
In the morning you got angry and went hunting.
“I’m gonna ask you one more time where is he?” you growl and dig the knife into the neck of the scientist. All the trails lead to him.
“Wade Wilson is gone. But not dead” the scientist replies and grins maliciously. You grit your teeth and jan the knife in letting the scientist die.
You searched for him for years and years. But he was gone.
Not wanting to admit the obvious you drew yourself to the conclusion that he was kidnapped.
You knew the truth though.
You didn’t move on. You went to a university and became a forensic scientist. You followed every trail you could but being a scientist would help you see some harder to find clues.
Your search for Wade (or his body) went on for years and years.
Then the Avengers found you.
“Stand down Dr (Y/L/N)” Ironman orders aiming a repulsive bean at you. Reluctantly you release the scientist lackeys throat. The scientist works for Stryker and you suspect he has something to do with Wades de-disappearance.
“Hands up please” Captain America orders and you hold your hands up. The Black Widow handcuffs you and leads you out.
The Avengers take you to their tower for questioning not wanting to let SHIELD take me. They know what I can do.
“We just want to know why you were trying to strangle that guy” Captain Americs states plainly.
“My business is my own” you remark.
“Does it by any chance have anything to do with your boyfriend Wades sudden disappearance two years ago would it?” Tony inquires and holds up his iPhone with a picture of the crime scene on it. You unwillingly gasp then glare.
“How do you know about that?”
“Oh we know in fact we know everything. Stevie here is just playing dumb but we know. We know about you and Wade being vigilantes, we know about the killing spree you went on after he disappeared, we know about your sudden career change, and we know your top suspect.” Tony has a victorious face on and you scowl.
“If you knew why’d you let us kill all those people?” you question smartly.
“They were bad people and we figured to let you take care of it rather than have them imprisoned costing the government money” Black Widow responds. You don’t have a retort for that or anything to say in fact.
“Look we aren’t here to shove you in a prison” Hawkeye admits. “We want to recruit you to work for us.”
“Yeah be our scientist slash katana killer” Ironman continues.
“Okay” you sigh. “Might as well.”
You worked as a scientist with the Avengers for a year still searching for Wade when something finally serviced.
“Hey (Y/N) I think I’ve got something” Clint comments and tosses a file onto your desk. “This guy Deadpool is a mercenary that surfaced about six months after Wade went missing.”
“Yeah so?” you say.
“My friend Hunter worked with him once said he called himself Wade, endlessly talked, and never took his mask off” Clint explains and you flip open the file.
“I’m taking a week off. I gotta find this guy it could be my Wade.”
Deadpool was not hard to find at all.
“You’re dead and you’re dead and I’m only saying this because the author doesn’ know how else to start this scene” Deapool exclaims and slices some guys head off. You found him when he was on the job.
“My you’re pretty good with a katana” you observe. That voice sounds like his. Deadpool whips around and lands a katana in your stomach because your standing so close behind him.
“God fuck!” you snap.
“(Y/N)?” Deapool mutters and you look up eyes wide. ITS WADE!
“Wade? WADE!” you shout. “I’ve been looking for three years! Where have you been? What happened to you? Why are you a mercenary? Why didn’t you come back??!”
Wade is frozen and you can’t see an expression behind the mask. Slowly he backs up taking the katana in your stomach with him and let’s you hit the ground clutching the wound.
“I’m a monster” he whispers then he runs.
“Wade no! WADE! Don’t you leave me again!! WADE WILSON!” you screech and spit blood up. “WADE NO!”
Blackness surrounds you and you wish with all your heart you don’t wake up.
Today in 1807, during the Napoleonic Wars, the British packet ship Windsor Castle under the command of her acting-captain William Rogers not only defended repeated attacks from the French privateer Jeune Richard, but finally engaged her, boarded her and after overpowering the much larger crew, forced them below decks and took the privateer as their prize. The victory was widely reported in contemporary papers and journals. Rogers and his crew were hailed as heroes and lavishly rewarded for their valour.
The Windsor Castle sailed from England under the command of Acting-Captain William Rogers, bound for the Leeward Islands and Barbados in September 1807, carrying the mail. She carried six 4-pounder guns and two 9-pounder carronades, and had a crew of 28 men and boys. Early on the morning of 1 October a sail was sighted, and by half past eight the mystery ship was piling on sail to catch the packet. Identifying her as a privateer schooner, Rogers attempted to outrun the enemy, but she continued to close and he realised he would be compelled to fight. His enemy was the Jeune Richard, carrying six long 6-pounder guns and one long 18-pounder gun, a considerably heavier weight of shot than the Windsor Castle. The Jeune Richard also had a crew of 92, over three times that of the British packet.
Rogers prepared for action, and stood by to sink the mail should it become necessary to keep it out of enemy hands. By noon the Jeune Richard had closed the distance, and running up the French colours, she opened fire. The Windsor Castle returned fire, at which the French called on Rogers to surrender. He refused, so the Jeune Richard ran alongside the Windsor Castle deploying grappling irons, and attempted to board. The Windsor Castle′s crew mustered with pikes and repelled the boarders, killing or wounding between eight and ten of the French. The Jeune Richard′s crew attempted to cut the lines and pull away but the Windsor Castle′s main yard remained locked in the privateer’s rigging, holding the two ships together.
The fighting continued for several hours, but by 3pm one of the Windsor Castle′s 9-pounder Carronades had been brought up on deck and loaded with double grape, canister and 100 musket balls. When the French made another attempt to force their way aboard, the British discharged it to great effect, sweeping the privateer’s decks and causing considerable casualties and damage. Rogers then led five of his men onto the Jeune Richard and forced the French from their guns, driving them below after a fierce fight and securing control of the privateer. With the French crew trapped below but still considerably greater in number than the small British force that had control of the decks, Rogers ordered each Frenchman up on deck one at a time, where he had them placed in irons.
With the Jeune Richard secured, Rogers took her and the Windsor Castle to the nearest British port. The British had three dead and ten wounded, the French had twenty-one dead and thirty-three wounded. Rogers then made his report to the officer commanding the station, Admiral Sir Alexander Cochrane. Cochrane forwarded his report to the Admiralty, adding an accompanying note:
‘Sir, The enclosed letter which I have just received from Mr. Rogers, the master of the Windsor Castle packet, gives an account of the capture of a French privateer. It is an instance of bravery and persevering courage, combined with great presence of mind, as was scarcely ever exceeded. He has shown such ability defending one of His Majesty’s packets, that I hope it will secure him the command of the first which is vacant.’
The news of how Rogers had turned upon his pursuer and taken her as his prize created a sensation. The account appeared in numerous newspapers, journals and periodicals. Societies and guilds joined to raise subscriptions to reward Rogers and his crew. In addition to sums of money Rogers received two swords, a piece of plate worth 100 guineas, a vase worth £60 and command of another packet ship. The artist Samuel Drummond painted Rogers’ portrait, and also created a depiction of the action, while other engravers and artists produced versions to illustrate the stories carried in the papers.
Painting: Captain William Rogers capturing the 'Jeune Richard’, 1st October 1807 by Samuel Drummond c. 1808
The scene is viewed from the 'Jeune Richard’s’ starboard main shrouds. In the centre of the painting Captain Rogers has boarded the privateer with his five remaining men and stands on the deck preparing to shoot the boatswain. Behind him a sailor aims a musket and another swings the butt of a pistol. Above them in the port main shrouds, another sailor attacks two Frenchmen overhead with a sword. The forecastle of the 'Windsor Castle’ is in the background, with three sailors attacking the French with pistols to the right. As Rogers steps on to the swivel of the 18-pounder, a Frenchman falls on his right but another, wounded in the foreground and with his back to us, points a pistol at him. Drummond painted this picture using his own a head-and-shoulders portrait of Rogers from life as a basis. He is shown striking a dramatic, determined pose, his right arm thrust forward while behind him a vortex of smoke, men and thrusting weaponry accentuates his bravery against the odds. This painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1808
