Thanos' Physicals - 9 Points

Sword of Athena - 9 Points

Superman's Flight - 2 points

Bruce Wayne/Captain America's H2H Skills - 1 Point

Captain America's Shield - 4 Points

Superman's Heat Vision - 5

I think I can clear pretty easily with this set.

Rounds 1 - 7 end with a bit of heat vision spam nice and quickly.

The Kursed get stomped by a combination of superior stats, better skill and my sword which will slice through them like butter, I take no damage due to any of them who go to hit me getting blasted by Heat Vision or blocked by my shield.

The Children get brought down easily give I can stop any TK with a casual blast of Heat Vision while I'm essentially a stronger, more skilled version of their boss with a sword that can kill any of them without any major resistance.

The Kryptonians depend. If they're at the level of Nam-Ek and Faora then I win handily due to my flight to get away if I get overwhelmed, my durability to tank any punishment, my shield to stop any blows I can while my sword can one shot any of them (By feats of cutting Doomsday) but if they're at the level of MOS Superman or Zod then no matter I lose tbh.

Thanos’s strength cuz why not

Arrow Of Yondu for speed and range

Black panther suit for invulnerability

Maw’s TK for round 9

Bruce Wayne's/Captain America's H2H combat skill

R1: arrow solos

R2: arrow solos

R3: arrow solos or I crush with TK

R4: i utilize the arrow while fighting h2h with them. I myself could oneshot each of them.

R4: arrow solos, and if not then I TK.

R5: Same as R4

R6: same as R5

R7: TK and arrow solo

R8: I stomp them with h2h or TK or snipe their brains with the arrow

R9: I take care of maw and thanos first with a mixture of arrow and TK. Then I stomp the rest.

R10: I get blitzed, but I could win on-paper.

Thanos physicals - 21 points left

Stormbreaker - 11 points left

Superspeed - 3 points left

Illusions - 0 points left

Round 1-7 - Epic one shot Thor "bring me thanos" style. Only Round 8 onwards can possibly survive it when I apply it on Quicksilver levels of speed which prevents any reaction from the opponents. I stomp

Round 8 - They are gonna be most likely immune to my lightning. Implosion granades are gonna be a problem too but I can dodge them using superspeed. Kurse's don't really have enough reaction speed to dodge a hit from Quicksilver so I can take their back one by one and cut their heads off with Stormbreaker. I should win solid majority here, but if one of them tags me and they gank up on me I can see them taking this. I win 8-9/10

Round 9 - This is gonna be a problem but this is why I picked Loki's illusions. Maw and Ronan will have a hard time pinning me down with their telekinesis if I can leave illusions all over the place as I run around and take them down with Stormbreaker. Only Loki will be able to see through my illusions but he won't take me down alone. Eventually I go for the head and even kill Thanos. But I can see a lot of things that could go wrong here so I only say I win about 7/10.

Round 10 - Hardest matchup for me but I think I can still narrowly win. Loki's illusions will confuse the hell out of kryptonians. I can't recall their suits being able to help them with identification. Stormbreaker should be able to cut even through their armor, in severl hits to be sure. Maybe even lightning would work to damage their masks. Quicksilver's superspeed is not gonna be enough here to blitz though so I'm in big trouble going 1vs5. Illusions should help me split and kill them but yeah, it's a very close fight 5.5/10 or smh

How you are gonna win a fight against 5 kryptonians exactly by using flight? Sups had the exact same flight and he lost to just 2 of them. It's not like Thanos has enough reaction speed to help u utilize the flight in combat at Mach XXX anyway.

Considering they had no knowledge about the bracelet clash, it's unlikely that this would happen. Probably after my 3rd attempts or something, but I should be able to take some of them down before that.

If that ever happened, I can also fly up and take the fight up there where I have the advantage.

@lan_fan: if Faora can grab bullrushing Superman by the throat then she'd have no troubles deflecting the sword. Also this is 5 vs 1. I dont really think u have any chances to take R10 with that power set. All of the kryptonians will have reaction speed advantage and stats to keep up with you so 5 vs 1 you are pretty much dead imo.

Thanos - 9 pts

Iron Man Armor - 8 pts

Quicksilver speed - 8 pts

Cap Shield - 4 pts

H2H Expert - 1 pt

The nanosuit is a steal - it is insanely versatile. Automatic high level durability, increases my already high level strength, flight (escape velocity level), energy projection, back missiles, and piercing (hopefully it doesnt get used against me like what happened to IM). I am adding in Caps shield because I have extra points, but the nano suit also was able to throw up a shield that took a hell of a lot of damage - I just think Caps shield is superior.

Thanos stats means I have very high level brute force durability and strength to start with. With the nano suit I should be able to take whatever comes my way less piercing attacks, but I have caps shield there. Suit gives me flight and combine with quicksilver speed and I shouldnt have any issue dodging most any attacks and the force of my punches will now only skyrocket with that speed. PLUS I can amp my punches further via the suit, just like IM did. IF someone tags me it should do little to no damage. I have missiles built into the suit for group attacks. Plus I have incredibly powerful repulsor/energy blasts - I can focus the blasts for any brutes or use each hand individually for multiple foes. For some of the more durable foes (ie - Thanos/kryptonians), I plan on turning my hand into a blade and stabbing peeps in the eye...

Oh, and I am the best hand to hand fighter on the planet.

Would love to have had Maws TK, but couldnt afford it.

I have a chance to clear. The kryptonians could be an issue though due to numbers and speed. With quicksilver speed I make up some of the difference and hopefully with that and the H2H abilities I can make up the difference. I plan on trying to stab them in the face as quickly as possible.

10. Assuming it's 5 Faora tiers, I should win but I can easily see myself losing via skill disadvantage.

  • Thanos Physicals (9 Points).
  • Stormbreaker (10 Points).
  • Batman's Kevlar Suit (Just to fill 3 Points).
  • Quicksilver's Superspeed (8 Points).

The first 8 rounds will be no problem so I won't address them.

Round 9:

With Thanos' physicals most of them will be doing no serious harm to me, and although some could if they closed in, having a one shot weapon like Stormbreaker and Quicksilver's Speed would mean I could blitz and one shot most of the team with a Strombreaker Strike.

Round 10:

This round is the main reason I chose Quicksilver's Speed, I'm gonna need Superspeed if I want to avoid being blitzed, and Stormbreaker does have the power to one shot any of the Kryptonians, Thanos' physicals will mean I can take quite a few hits from the Kryptonians, as Thanos took hits from Hulk, who is a much better striker. So I will be able to take a few hits and Strombreaker will mean I can one shot the team.

@comicgirl21: No, she can't deflect the sword, she'll get pierced. Thanos has far better strength than Faora anyway. They can keep up with me, but they can't put me down easily and I have a weapon that can one-shot them.

I can also fly them up one by one like Superman did to Doomsday if they ever grabbed me. It'd be way easier to stab them up there where they can't fight back and can't get any back up.

Rounds 1-8 are easily cleared. My sword will cut through all of them, my illusions can keep them distracted, and my TK can keep them off me.

R9 is tough but I could clear with a mix of all my stats/abilities.

R10 is all about speed. They are much faster than me, but I don't think any of them can actually harm me. My illusions and TK can keep them distracted and/or restrained while I cut through them with my sword one at a time.

Thor's physicals 7

Stormbreaker 10

Black panther suit 5

Qs speed 8

I take on 1-8 all at once and kill them all statues can touch me and I decapitate them all with storm breaker and even if the somehow lay a finger on me my suit absorbs the energy and sends it back at them

9 will be hard on pretty sure with how fast I am and seeing as half my character already killed thanos once I can pull the win and decapitate the rest with superspeed

10 will be very hard they are just as fast as me but they can't hurt me with my suit and I can push them all back with their own force and hurt them so I think I should clear

You should reduce the build points to 21.

With 30?

Helas Constructs+Bleeding Edge+Yondu's arrow would end in an absolute stomp via range spam in all rounds and you still have 6 points left over.

Alternately, QS Speed+Vision Phasing+Thanos Physicals would turn you into a blitz monster from hell almost every round, and you still have eniugh left for a panther suit.

Phasing + Mjolnir + Thor's physicals + Superman's flying + BP Panther Habit + Cap's H2H = clear with ease.

Continuous no-risk BFD (Mjolnir, with Thor's strength behind it compounded by Supes' flying speed, and I can phase myself before the explosion KO's me) and martial arts on the stragglers. None of them can take the onslaught forever.

@comicgirl21: He seems to be way stronger than Thor and Hulk who seem to be more or less in Superman's ballpark in strength. But of course Superman is way faster, and can fly even far far faster, which allow him to strike way harder than any of these 3. Superman is also more durable.

As for Faora, she doesn't really have much strength feats to begin with.

@lan_fan: I mean Im only asking because Superman has multi thousand ton feats like ya know pulling that giant cruiser through the ice or lifting a multi story apartment over his head both done very casually with no visible strain as background feats. I never saw guys like Thor do anything like this, thats why Im kinda shocked you put them in the same strength scale. Thor seemed kinda even in an armlock with Iron man mark 3 or 4 which has a top feat of lifting a tank and its still off panel. Im no expert in MCU so I might be missing some feats but that was my impression. Im bringing this up because Faora, Nam Ek and Zod clearly held up with Sups all the way in terms of stength giving us the idea kryptonian strength is at least comparable

@comicgirl21: Hulk stopping Leviathan and one-shotting glacier are pretty impressive. Has Faora ever really showed comparable strength to Superman? I think Nam-Ek did, but not Faora.

Avatar image for comicgirl21
#37 Posted by ComicGirl21 (1086 posts) - - Show Bio

@lan_fan: yeah I never said Leviathan punch was not impressive, its just not the same league to me. They are also hovering and their weight is controversial (one of them collapsed on a buildimg roof without damaging the building) so there are a lot of factors that make the feat unclear in terms of scale. I certainly wouldnt put them in the same league. Id say Hulk is small building level (100+/- tons) and Thor is wall ++ buster (20-50 tons) while Superman would be anywhere from city block level (multi thousand tons) maybe more. Faora and Thanos are both featless pretty much, they only scale to others.

Avatar image for lan_fan
#38 Edited by Lan_Fan (12683 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicgirl21: Still, leviathans can tear through buildings with just flying, so stopping it is pretty damn impressive. At least large building level. One-shotting a huge glacier is pretty great too.

Scaling require feats as well. Faora doesn't really have it, unlike Nam-Ek and Thanos. That'd be a baseless scaling.

@lan_fan: what feats Thanos has exactly? Im pretty sure he visibly exerted himself by just lifting the Hulk off the ground. Also Cap of all people was able to hold his hand still for a while no? Im not denying Thanos strength, he is very strong but it seems to me he really isnt comparable to kryptonians like Nam Ek. (ill stick with him if Faora seems featless)

@comicgirl21: Like I said, overpowering Hulk is a legit feat, even if it requires scaling. Just like Nam-Ek directly stopping Superman's bullrush (Faora just choked him) and pushing back Superman with seemingly equal strength. Cap was like holding his finger, and obviously Thanos didn't go all out otherwise those people would've been long dead before the snap. Thanos also effortlessly crushed vibranium (Vision's forehead) with his finger, that's also impressive.

Thought I would do this one more time. Mix a few things up though:

Bruce Wayne Physicals (1) - With the Iron Man suit, I dont really need to be better than this. IM was able to give an amped thanos a good fight

Iron Man Nano Suit (9) - Still the biggest steal here. Durable, shields, missiles, energy attacks, strength, flight, escape velocity speed, ability to create blades, etc

Quicksilver Speed (17) - A must for the later battles. Gonna need speed for the high tier teams

Bruce/Cap H2H (18) - Since this is otherwise me, Im going to need this.

So at this point Im pretty legit on speed and overall attacks. I could go with Sword of Athena, but my iron man suit already has the ability to make blades and with my speed/strength combo, Im not worried about being able to pierce anyone here. I could go with the intangibility - would be a great last defensive measure, but then I might lose that ability in r9 if I get tagged. So I think Im going to spend the 9 pts on Maw TK - gives me the ability to spam a lot of debris against the groups. I also can swat away foes that get too close. Last 3 points will go to Loki Illusions - this will buy me some time from being blitzed.

So I think I am pretty solid until round 9. Tony gave amped thanos a good fight, but if you now add in my super speed, I get a big bump on reactions. Basically my plan is going to be to immediately make my arm into a blade and try to stab everyone as quickly as I can. Maw will be my first target as he has the best ranged attacks and possibility of throwing me off-course. I would probably try and take out another one or two of them and then turn my attention to Thanos - I dont want him hanging around too long. Go for the jugular. If that proves more difficult than I had planned, Id probably try and BFR him via TK.

Round 10 is going to prove equally tough. But the basic plan is the same. Everyone seems to share a common weakness of piercing attacks, so my goal is to spam with TK debris and focus on stabbing them one at a time. The illusions should buy me a bit of time. If one is about to get in on me hopefully my quicksilver reaction speed plus the analysis of my armor will give me a quick moment to wave my hand and TK swat them into a building. Itll be tough, but I like the nano-suit/quicksilver speed combo...
