Weekly Reading List #29

Hello there!

Originally posted by geekylaugifs

What shall I say… I am so, so, so frustrated right now!!! I was about to post my Weekly Reading List on Sunday, like I promised to, and I was sitting in front of my Computer and everything was fine, every fic was linked, every tag worked, etc, and then happened…. TUMBLR. It just crashed and because I didn’t safe the last change, almost everything was lost….

So I thought, don’t worry, it’s not that late, you don’t need to get up early tomorrow, just do it again… And TUMBLR happened again, of course… I restarted my list three times, it was almost midnight and when tumblr crashed the third time I let it be and went to bed.

So now I am sitting here after a day which frustrated me more and more and I just hope that this time everything will be ok, though I already have he feeling I wasn’t able to safe every fic I read the last days… So I am very sorry, dear reader, I hope you gonna enjoy my list anyway.

Actually I planed on telling you that I was in the cinema, watching ‘Gifted’ with Chris Evans, which was an amazing film and I really enjoyed it, but now I am gonna focus on my list and if there is time the next few days I will try to do a post just for the film hoping the ones who didn’t saw it yet will maybe think about watching it.

Okay, this is definitely enough talk for now, seems like I made a lot of mistakes as well, before I am gonna embarras myself any further, please enjoy the following list!

Love, bi-e-ne

Batman vs Captain America

What Again?…

After telling my dad that Batman would win the fight if they were both naked he said “Well what if just Batman was naked but Captain America had all of his armor and equipment?” What if indeed… This time it will be just Batman that drops he’s armor and equipment while Captain America still has all of his. Let’s see how they get on!

Batman (naked)

Alter ego: Bruce Wayne

Height: 6′ 2″

Weight: 210 lbs

Skills and Abilities

This is Batman naked, which just means I will not be talking about any of his equipment nor will I be adding it in to the total. You know, like Batman is actually fighting naked, or at least in just his underwear.

Batman has no inherent superhuman powers; he relies on “his own scientific knowledge, detective skills, and athletic prowess”. Batman has a genius-level intellect. In fact Batman has been repeatedly described as having a genius-level intellect, being a polymath, and his knowledge and expertise in almost every discipline known to man is nearly unparalleled by any other character in the DC Universe. In the Superman: Doomed story arc, Superman considers Batman to be one of the most brilliant minds on the planet. He is a master of disguise, multilingual, and an expert in espionage, often gathering information under the identity of Matches Malone, a notorious gangster. He is a master of stealth and escapology, which allows him to appear and disappear at will and to break free of nearly inescapable deathtraps with little to no harm. Batman is at peak human physical and mental conditioning. Batman has been repeatedly described as having peak human physical conditioning in fact. This is why Batman has the ability to function under great physical pain and to withstand telepathy and mind control. Batman is a master martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant. Batman has been repeatedly described as being one of the greatest martial artists in the DC Universe, Batman has trained extensively in various martial arts, mastering over 127 different types, making him one of the best hand-to-hand fighters in the DC Universe. Superman describes Batman as “the most dangerous man on Earth”, able to defeat an entire team of superpowered extraterrestrials by himself in order to rescue his imprisoned teammates in Grant Morrison’s first storyline in JLA. Batman is a master detective. In comic books, being a detective usually gives someone the power to know the next movements of the person they are fighting, I don’t think real detectives can do this but whatever because comics. In the stories, Batman is regarded as one of the world’s greatest detectives, if not the world’s greatest crime solver. This in turn makes him crazy good at knowing someone’s next move before it happens because that’s just how comics work. Batman is an expert in interrogation techniques and often uses extreme methods to extract information from suspects, such as hanging a person over the edge of a building. His intimidating and frightening appearance alone is often all that is needed in getting information from suspects. Despite having the potential to harm his enemies, Batman’s most defining characteristic is his strong commitment to justice and his unwillingness to take life, regardless of the situation he has faced. This unyielding moral rectitude has earned him the respect of several heroes in the DC Universe, most notably that of Superman and Wonder Woman.


Captain America

Alter ego: Steve Rogers

Height: 6′ 2″

Weight: 240 lbs

Powers, Abilities, Weapons, and Equipment

Captain America has an enhanced physical condition and an enhanced mental faculties. Captain America has no superhuman powers, but through the Super-Soldier Serum and “Vita-Ray” treatment, he is transformed and his strength, endurance, agility, speed, reflexes, durability, and healing are at the zenith of natural human potential. Rogers’ body regularly replenishes the super-soldier serum; it does not wear off. The formula enhances all of his metabolic functions and prevents the build-up of fatigue poisons in his muscles, giving him endurance far in excess of an ordinary human being. This accounts for many of his extraordinary feats, including bench pressing 1200 pounds (545 kg) and running a mile (1.6 km) in 73 seconds (49 mph/78 kph). Furthermore, his enhancements are the reason why he was able to survive being frozen in suspended animation for decades. He is highly resistant to hypnosis or gases that could limit his focus. The secrets of creating a super-soldier were lost with the death of its creator, Dr. Abraham Erskine. In the ensuing decades there have been numerous attempts to recreate Erskine’s treatment, only to have them end in failure. Even worse, the attempts have instead often created psychopathic supervillains of which Captain America’s 1950s imitator and Nuke are the most notorious examples. Rogers’ reflexes and senses are extraordinarily keen. A common misconception is that the shield can “magically” return to Captain America. The “superhuman serum” that enhanced Captain America’s physical attributes also improved his mental faculties—such as cognition, perception, balance, aim, and reflexes—to near genius-level. This allows him to instantly calculate ballistic-physics and predict the probable trajectory of objects in motion. This makes him a perfect shot. He can dodge or deflect bullets with his shield without collateral ricochet to civilians, to calculate where or how the shield will bounce and when it will return to his location, or trip a running person to cause them to fall into a specific position. Although the super-soldier serum is an important part of his strength, Rogers has shown himself still sufficiently capable against stronger opponents, even when the serum has been deactivated reverting him to his pre-Captain America physique. Although he lacks superhuman strength of Thor, Captain America is one of the few mortal beings who has been deemed worthy enough to wield Thor’s hammer Mjolnir. Captain America is a master martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant. He has blended judo, western boxing, kickboxing, and gymnastics into his own unique fighting style and is a master of multiple martial arts. In canon, he is regarded by other skilled fighters as one of the best hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel Universe, limited only by his human physique. Steve is a master tactician, strategist and field commander. Rogers’ battle experience and training is what made him an expert tactician and an excellent field commander, with his teammates frequently deferring to his orders in battle. Thor has stated that Rogers is one of the very few humans he will take orders from and follow “through the gates of Hades”. Rogers has vast U.S. military knowledge and is often shown to be familiar with ongoing, classified Defense Department operations. He is an expert in combat strategy, survival, acrobatics, military strategy, piloting, and demolitions. Despite his high profile as one of the world’s most popular and recognizable superheroes, Rogers has a broad understanding of the espionage community, largely through his ongoing relationship with S.H.I.E.L.D. He is a talented artist, and has worked on the Captain America comic book published in the Marvel universe. Other career fields include commercial arts, teaching high school history, and law enforcement. Rogers has a mastery of various weapons, is an expert marksman, and wields vibranium-steel alloy shield. Captain America’s shield is physically indestructible under normal conditions; while cosmic and godly opponents have broken the shield, the shield proves strong enough to absorb Hulk’s strength, and repel an attack from Thor’s mystical hammer Mjölnir without any visible damage. It is able to absorb all kinetic energy and transfers very little energy from each impact, meaning Captain America does not feel recoil or transferred impact forces from blocking attacks. These physical properties also means the shield can bounce off of most smooth surfaces, ricocheting multiple times with minimal loss in aerodynamic stability or velocity. Captain America has used multiple shields throughout his history, the most prevalent of which is a nigh-indestructible disc-shaped shield made from an experimental alloy of steel and the fictional vibranium. The shield was cast by American metallurgist Dr. Myron MacLain, who was contracted by the U.S. government, from orders of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to create an impenetrable substance to use for tanks during World War II. This alloy was created by accident and never duplicated, although efforts to reverse-engineer it resulted in the discovery of adamantium. Captain America often uses his shield as an offensive throwing weapon. The first instance of Captain America’s trademark ricocheting shield-toss occurs in Stan Lee’s first comics writing, the two-page text story “Captain America Foils the Traitor’s Revenge” in Captain America Comics #3 (May 1941) The legacy of the shield among other comics characters includes the time-traveling mutant superhero Cable telling Captain America that his shield still exists in one of the possible futures; Cable carries it into battle and brandishes it as a symbol. When without his trademark shield, Captain America sometimes uses other shields made from less durable metals such as steel, or even a photonic energy shield designed to mimic a vibranium matrix. Rogers, having relinquished his regular shield to Barnes, carried a variant of the energy shield which can be used with either arm, and used to either block attacks or as an improvised offensive weapon able to cut through metal with relative ease. Much like his Vibranium shield, the energy shield can be thrown, including ricocheting off multiple surfaces and returning to his hand. Captain America’s uniform is made of a fire-retardant material, and he wears a lightweight, bulletproof duralumin scale armor beneath his uniform for added protection. Originally, Rogers’ mask was a separate piece of material, but an early engagement had it dislodged, thus almost exposing his identity. To prevent a recurrence of the situation, Rogers modified the mask with connecting material to his uniform, an added benefit of which was extending his armor to cover his previously exposed neck. As a member of the Avengers, Rogers has an Avengers priority card, which serves as a communications device.Captain America has used a custom specialized motorcycle, modified by the S.H.I.E.L.D. weapons laboratory, as well as a custom-built battle van, constructed by the Wakanda Design Group with the ability to change its color for disguise purposes (red, white and blue), and fitted to store and conceal the custom motorcycle in its rear section with a frame that allows Rogers to launch from the vehicle riding it.

Winner

Well this time it is Captain America with 1,917,495 points. Although Batman did not go down easy with a total of 1,537,508 points and still a 40.1% chance of winning. I know my dad was trying to get me to admit that that under good circumstances Captain America could beat Batman by giving me this fight because Captain America is his favorite and Batman is mine. However, I’m not shaken’ from the Idea that Batman is more badass because even if you take way everything but his knowledge and body Batman can still stand a chance. That is amazing to me and this is way Batman is still my favorite. So take that Dad! 

Send me a message about anything or feel free to ask anything. Please I need your guy’s help! Who should fight next?

AU where Tony Stark has three sons, all members of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Grant Ward (Grant Stark) is not really undercover for Hydra, but Tony Stark, helping The Avengers Initiative. Hence his interest in Skye.

Hal Mason (Hal Stark) went undercover in a military controlled simulation where what would have happened if the aliens had really taken over is the main concept. Project T.A.H.I.T.I. was used successfully on most of the people involved to help him blend in. Spikes were placed on people with powers in order to explain their abilities. Additionally, modified spikes were placed on those who started to remember life before T.A.H.I.T.I. that instilled memories from their current life in order to maintain the facade. I.C.E.R.s were used on all involved.

Robert Kitner (Robert Stark) also went undercover, in a controlled foreign invasion take over, weeding out the bravest of the brave to recruit them for the new S.H.I.E.L.D.. I.C.E.R.s were used in all involved.

Once a year they all get together, tinkering in Tony’s shop.
