I thought you should see Heimdall bitchslapping Gladiator.

And i am not tagging you here to trigger you or anything, i am tagging you because something tells me Gladiator is gonna get mistreated here badly by Aaron.

The speed of Gladiator right there is crazy as hell, I expect Gladiator to mop the floor with most Asgardians with ease.

Gladiator crossed entire galaxies in the blink of an eye as he has to be going faster than light or beyond to do that.

Attack when Heimdall is blinking may sounds like a good idea.

But.......how did Gladiator see Heimdall blink???

Is Kallark stalking Heimdall? That...sounds really weird.

Gladiator's vision is so good he can see things galaxies away so he most likely watched and saw the moment and took it.

That Gladiator speed feat feels a lot like a certain feat from DBS. The distance is implied but not stated well enough to be calculated. Pretty cool feat, though.

Gladiator got staggered by Heimdall, his eye beams got blocked by a sword and he failed to one shot Heimdall and you think he's gonna mop the Asgardians in this story?

I see a Drax vs Gladiator moment show Heimdall getting in a shot and when the issue comes out it's the same result plus going by the next issue synopsis - Not all gods are equal, and to prove that they’re the mightiest, the Shi’ar gods infiltrated Asgard and kidnapped Thor and forced her to be a contestant in their Challenge of the Gods. Gladiator seems like a distraction for the rest of the Shi'ar to get by and kidnap Thor.

Heimdall's sword isn't just a regular sword either - Hofund: Heimdall carries an uru sword enchanted by Odin.With his sword Heimdall can command cosmic forces into his sword to strike down a half powered Thor from entering Asgard, he can also use his sword to wield blue flames from countless cosmic stars,and the ability to mystically disguise himself as a mortal human while he was on Earth.

@lvenger: Gladiator fans are always desperate, the fact that he didn't one shot Heimdall here, is pretty bad for someone like him. At least he got another useless travel speed.

Considering Gladiator wasn't trying to kill him says a lot as Gladiator broke parts of the rainbow bridge as well, Travel speed feat how so when Gladiator crossed galaxies and did an attack before Heimball could react.

Dont think most remember Heimdall is one of the most powerful Asgardians out there. He is the protector of the rainbow bridge for a reason. Good sneak for glads though its almost impossible to sneak up on heimdall

Well it depends on how often Heimdall blinks as it would be weeks or any amount of time so it does make Gladiator seem stalkerish but you have to do what you have to,to sneak attack a guy who can see everything at once.

Gladiator pretty much says "the rest of you can burn for all i care" pretty much indicates he was not holding back in any shape way or form and he didn't even knock out Heimdall, nobody says he had to outright kill him.

I don't remember Heimdall having any kind of reaction feats, but the fact that Gladiator did such a massive blitz without him reacting and still resulted in nothing, just further tells me how Gladiator is not as powerful as people portray him to be, but i will wait to see how the rest of the comic plays out, so far Heimdall seems to be the favorite.

Also Heimdall saw Gladiator, which is indicated by him saying "No." before Gladiator struck him.

The fact he failed to one shot someone who's barely superior to, if not only equal to The Wrecking Crew speaks for itself on how disappointing Gladiator's performance was. I know the plot already, it doesn't change the problem that Gladiator failed to curbstomp a being so massively below him in an instant. Nice wiki description but Heimdall's sword doesn't have any impressive feats like other enchanted swords so Glads' star level heat vision being blocked by this sword is underwhelming tbf.

Yep I can see the desperation. If he can't handle Heimdall how is he gonna take on She-Thor?

Gladiator doesn't care because he is after Thor so all the other Gods are beneath his notice nor do they warrant any amount of his time. Heimdall is not a weak character as thats why he was knocked back but not knocked out also the rainbow bridge was damaged but you'll ignore that.

Also Heimdall saw Gladiator, which is indicated by him saying "No." before Gladiator struck him.

Because he could not react to what was happening as he could see the attack but not dodge it aka blitz but Gladiator crossed galaxies and attacked in the time it took for Heimdall to blink once - A real blink of an eye takes 300 to 400 milliseconds. Since there's 1000 milliseconds in each second, a blink of an eye takes around 1/3 of a second. This is only comparable if Asgardians blink at the same rate as humans as it could be slower or faster but still this feat makes Gladiator faster than most.

We have no idea if Gladiator will curbstomp him or not as being face palmed uppercutted doesn't mean anything as people thought Drax was going to beat Gladiator and Glads stomped him so again waiting for it to unfold is for the best. I was getting at Heimdall's sword is enchanted by Odin so it makes sense that Gladiator's optic blast couldn't break it but how do you expect Heimdall to have amazing feats since he never (rarely) leaves the rainbow bridge ?.

Exactly he doesn't care but he isn't capable of just swatting Heimdall away, the same way Hulk did before for instance where he slammed the rainbow bridge and sent Heimdall flying. Heimdall is not a Thor level character by any means, the fact that a galaxy long distance did not KO Heimdall who didn't even have the time to block it just tells me how weak Gladiators blitz really is. Yea he damaged the rainbow bridge, so?

Because he could not react to what was happening as he could see the attack but not dodge it aka blitz but Gladiator crossed galaxies and attacked in the time it took for Heimdall to blink once - A real blink of an eye takes 300 to 400 milliseconds.

This is only comparable if Asgardians blink at the same rate as humans as it could be slower or faster but still this feat makes Gladiator faster than most.

Yea, such an amazing travel speed, yet still not powerful enough to cause more then small discomfort to Heimdall, that's kind hilarious to me.

@lvenger:Yea, they are in full damage control already, even before the comic came out. Imagine how much they will scatter around once it does come out.

@lvenger: Do you think this is one of the worst/weakest blitzes in all of comics? I don't think i ever saw a character cross an entire Galaxy in a blink of an eye and only throw a guy of his feat as a result, a guy who isn't on Hulks, Thors, Supermans level, you know the classic powerhouse level. He didn't even stun him for a panel or two.

I don't know about you, but this is pretty funny to me.

@hellionvulcan: Gladiator probably will turn the tides in the issue itself but the fact he isn't swatting Heimdall away like a fly when Sentry's blitzes caused problems for Heimdall indirectly doesn't make Glads look good. It doesn't matter if this is like the Drax fight, and honestly Gladiator is taking this more seriously than he was with Drax, the inability to one shot Heimdall, who doesn't have high tier feats, is a disappointment for a so called powerhouse like Gladiator.

@atheistknowledge I would expect a FTL blitz to do more damage than just knock a mid tier Asgardian off his feet for a moment without doing any visible damage. Hardly a crowning achievement for Gladiator as it's useless in a battle. I do find that funny.

"he isn't capable of just swatting Heimdall away" This thing called writers and the rest is called plot as again wait and see how the fight turns out before thinking/stating anything too serious. I don't think Gladiator's optic blast has ever ko'd anyone (IIRC) only physically has Gladiator done so.

Damage control hahahahahahahahahaha where i haven't seen a single post besides yours whining.

@hellionvulcan: I am waiting how the fight turns out, but so far it isn't looking good, a galaxy long MFTL blitz only knocked a midtier Asgardian off his feat, that's pretty bad so far. I never even mentioned Gladiators HV.

I am not whining i am laughing and having quite a lot of fun, you however felt obligated to reply to me and try to soften Gladiators sub par performance so far. So you are in full damage control mode, running around trying to save Gladiators face as much as possible, but this is what i have told you before. Gladiator is not on the level you want him to be, he simply isn't. Love the desperation though, should have used a few more "ha" there.

Gladiator stating "stand down ,Sentry. My fight is not with you" makes Gladiators attack seem like it was not meant to be a killing blow or maybe Glads underestimated his durability. I never cared how it made Gladiator look good or not as i just stated the feat in and of itself was amazingly fast.

Show me where i "saved face" or went for "damage control" as anecdotal posts are worthless ,i stated nothing as fact just liked the massive speed feat Gladiator was given.

It's mentioned in text that Gladiator crossed Galaxies in the time it took for Heimdall to blink, How is that not considered fast as it's why i only mentioned human blinking time (if it's comparable to Asgardians) as the galaxies could've been tiny as it's why i never cared about that part.

It's never stated Gladiator crossed galaxies in the blink of an eye to get to Heimdall, the text says "Fast enough to cross galaxies in the blink of an eye" which honestly sounds like hyperbole. You're just being willfully ignorant about the obvious hyperbole Aaron was using but I know there's no convincing you with valid criticism when it comes to Gladiator by now.

You're just being willfully ignorant about the obvious hyperbole Aaron was using but I know there's no convincing you with valid criticism when it comes to Gladiator by now.

What valid criticism as neither of you's posted any besides low balling a character while ignoring what a writer has stated/shown on panel is not criticism at all. Athiestknowledge and i had this debate before about world war hulk "stopping" juggernaut where he stated what the writer states is fact so hyperbole or not, it's canon and a feat now. Again what part of my post cared about hyperbole seriously quote me as i never compared the feat to anything else, i just said the feat has to be faster than light to cross galaxies and attack someone in the blink of an eye. Who knows maybe the feat will be explained later on in full detail which makes what we are saying now pointless.

Desperate Glads fan? YES! As a Gladiator fan I am desperately wanting to see him kick some ass. Too often used as prop for less powerful, more popular characters.

@lvenger: if heimdall can actually perceive things from that far away, and barely has time to say no after blinking, I don't see how you can call this hyperbole.

@atheistknowledge: he outright admits that he's not here for heimdall...he's not going for the kill here obviously, it more like he's just doesn't care if he dies or not.

Heimdall is in his way, i understand that he did not came here for him, but unless he takes him out he is not getting to where he wants and so far he failed to take him despite pulling of a blitz and even being willing to kill him if need be.

@hellionvulcan: I am waiting how the fight turns out, but so far it isn't looking good, a galaxy long MFTL blitz only knocked a midtier Asgardian off his feat, that's pretty bad so far. I never even mentioned Gladiators HV.

I am not whining i am laughing and having quite a lot of fun, you however felt obligated to reply to me and try to soften Gladiators sub par performance so far. So you are in full damage control mode, running around trying to save Gladiators face as much as possible, but this is what i have told you before. Gladiator is not on the level you want him to be, he simply isn't. Love the desperation though, should have used a few more "ha" there.

No Caption Provided

But sure, let's wait and see how it all plays out till the end.

Show me where i "saved face" or went for "damage control" as anecdotal posts are worthless ,i stated nothing as fact just liked the massive speed feat Gladiator was given.

Well you being defensive about Gladiator falling to take out Heimdall or cause him any harm really. The speed feat is cool but it's jut another travel speed and the impact was less then pathetic. He also failed to dodge or block a strike for Heimdell, so another feat where he fails in combat speed for my list.

@atheistknowledge: not rly, all he needs is to incapacitate. Anyway, it looks like heimdall is attacking Glads with some kind of magic, or rainbow bridge shenanigans, and it doesn't look like it did much damage.

I'm sticking with hyperbole because we don't know where Gladiator started. He could have been only a few solar systems away for all we know.

@atheistknowledge: unless gladiator can perceive things as far away as heimdall, then he had to react somewhat as there's no way he could hit such a small target from so far away without reacting at all and just being given a destination.

@lvenger: if that were the case then heimdall would have seen him before hand.

@phillip33: You have no proof for that, that's only your opinion because you think this is a good feat for Gladiator. Or you want it to be.

Yes really. He triedto incapacitate him and failed, do you understand that? He blitzed him at top speed and it did nothing except throw him off his feat, it was a cheap shot that failed. He did not hit him with magic he used a piece of the rock of the rainbow bridge and hit him in the face with it(it's why he said "eat rainbow bridge") and we don't know the effects of the hit yet because all we see is Gladiators eyes closed and his face squinting in pain.

@lvenger: or because it's in heimdall powerset to literally see everything within his field of view... which extends out "thousands of worlds"
