The God-Pharoh has returned and we were not found worthy...

No Caption Provided

Today he'll be running a gauntlet of various characters to show just how powerful he is.

Rules

  • Bolas is morals on, but determined to win. The Gauntlet is in-character.
  • Bolas has 1 week of prep to face the entire gauntlet with as much knowledge and forces he could reasonably gather, they have none.
  • Victory is gained through KO, death, or general incapacitation of the opposing side.
  • All characters are standard versions, and all normal feats can be used.
No Caption Provided

Fight takes place on Amonkhet, completely deserted of all other life.

Rounds

  • Round 1 will be Post-Mending Bolas with his current power levels.
  • Round 2 will be Pre-Mending Bolas at the height of his power.

The Gauntlet

  1. Loki (MCU)
  2. Apocalypse and the Four Horsemen (Movie Versions)
  3. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman (DCCU)
  4. X-Men (Wolverine, Beast, Storm, Cyclops, Ice Man)
  5. Fantastic Four (Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Thing, Human Torch)
  6. Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Scarlet Witch)
  7. Dark Phoenix (Marvel)
  8. Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman)

I need to read up on the HoD stories, and I haven't had a chance to read the older novels with Bolas yet. I'm just going to discuss post-Mending.

That said, he should be able to easily stomp Loki given the spells he is shown doing in HoD card artwork. He should clear the next one too, Apocalypse was strong but Bolas has more direct damage AFAIK. Same with the next step. Once it gets to comic stuff, I feel he should clear steps four and five, but I'm sure there're some strong mental resistance feats I'm not remembering from the X-Men or FF.

I'm nearly 100% that Dark Phoenix is probably stronger than the JLA, and that she should stomp Bolas. Galactus should also win.

Six or Seven I think. Definitely Seven. But he would beat eight.

Pre-Mending Bolas could honestly clear. Galactus would be hard pressed to stop a being who can destroy entire planes.

You really think Bolas can beat Thor and Hulk? What has he done in HOD?

@banthabot: Hey, you! Are you still working on the MtG Respect Threads? The ones you have now are great, but it's been a while since I've seen any updates.

To be fair, pre-Mending at least, Bolas was absurdly powerful. As in: could crumble entire planes powerful

@jardinain2: In HoR so far Bolas has.

  • Been compared as having at least equal power to the entire pantheon of gods of Ahmonkhet
  • Laughed when struck by these gods attacks
  • Dissolved an attack from these gods by glancing at it
  • Fractured the mind of a god by nodding at her
  • Dissolved all the adults in a city out of existence simultaneously
  • One shot the minds of two gods at once with a swipe of his claw
  • Off set his body a half step from reality making it impossible to be hit with attacks
  • Twisted the leylines of the entire plane, including those inside the gods, twisting them into darker versions of themselves (It should be noted that Nissa was only able to make a very minor almost insignificant change in one god when manipulating their leylines, but Bolas changed the very core of their character and did it to all 8 of them)
  • Changed the trajectory of one of Ahmonkhets suns
  • Summoned fire balls from the sky that even a god was having trouble defending against.
  • Nonchalantly one shot the god Bontu leaving her weakened and almost dead.

And then there are the defeat cards that depict Bolas dominating each member of the Gatewatch.

Plus we know from Test of Metal that post mending Bolas has high level clockworking, so he can do things like travel, see, and pull things through time, and an infinite amount of alternative timelines.

@joewell911: I don't plan to stop making RT's but spare time has become very scarce recently. Just ask Red Viper. I barely have time to finish our CaV. He probably hates me. I have all the quotes gathered for Chandra Nalaar. I just need to put it together.

(Interesting fact about her. She doesn't just have pyromancy, she also has a little bit of lavamancy. She really broadened her horizons with that one)

Post-Mending Bolas, even with prep, would stop at round 8. He is, after all mortal, he needs a body to survive, and the League is more than capable of destroying that body... The Gatewatch is for the most part, unimpressive to me.

Pre-Mending Bolas could clear to be honest... He has better time-altering feats during his Pre-Mending existence than his Post-Mending self, he even has impressive feats while being Dead as a Pre-Mending Planeswalker...

I was referring to post-mending, pre-mending would wtfstomp (arguably) everyone here at once.

@jardinain2: I call it "changed the trajectory" because im not sure what else to call it. He definitely did cast a spell that altered the way the sun moved in order to fit his liking.

He spelled the second sun to move as he was ready, to count down until whenever he decided to return. This would be the cornerstone of his machinations on this world.

Damn. And isn't he weak or something throughout this story? I recall reading something along the lines of "Bolas only had a weeks worth of mana to complete his plans"

Hopefully he undoes the Mending for everyone, I'd like to see uber powerful planeswalkers again.

@jardinain2: undoing the mending for everyone would be out of character. He's all about being the most powerful guy around so why would he give everyone else omnipotence and omniscience?

@banthabot: I phrased that incorrectly. I meant the writers undo the Mending, starting with Bolas.

EDIT: and to be fair, none of the planeswalkers were really omnipotent or omniscient.

I’ll swap 7 and 8, so he’ll stop at 8(Dark Pheonix) but that’s a 50/50 because we know that Bolas is a damn schemer even he was nerfed.

Pre-Mending Bolas obviously clear even they try to use the IG on him.
