@jmarshmallow:

(Last post got deleted, anyway)

...No, that is not what that means.

"/" means "current AND/OR standard", implicating an approximately parallel meaning between two words.

In this case it'd be referring to the same exact Sentry anyway, but even if "current" bore a contextual distinction worth mentioning from "standard", both are allotted to "when the thread was originally made"

@mrstranger: It just as easily reads “Current” or “Standard when the thread was being made.”

Though It honestly doesn’t matter as Sentry and Thor win either way.

Yes..."when the thread was originally made".

You may have read it as such, but in objective accordance with the way it was typed/worded, that would be incorrect.

Whatever distinction "current" has from "standard", both are still bound by "when the thread was originally made" as part of the same sentence.

If people want to use current Sentry(in accordance with the designated rules), then they need to make or bump a thread that contemporaneously abides that version.

@mrstranger: If I read it as such, it’s not objective. That’s what the word means.

@jmarshmallow: You can read an exclamation mark interchangeably to an ellipsis, and/or "rouge" as "rogue", if you're so inclined.

You'd be objectively wrong then, as you are now.

But apparently words and punctuation no longer have objective meanings if they can be (mis)read as such. Which reads like an attempted validation of dyslexia.

@jmarshmallow: You are, because you exempt it from the remaining context of it's sentence.

Which is a fallacy of omission.

In addition to the five links above, you can consult any other lexicon you'd like.

Yeesh, normally the good guys would win after a tough fight, but Sentry's such a lame character in most stories where he appears now. Black Adam and Sinestro take it, because Sentry victories are boring to read.

Pretty sure "he's lame, so he loses" is a playground argument. It's also not valid. At all.

OT: Marvel team win. Sentry isn't soloing anything based off his lack of quantifiable speed feats.

Ha, no. Trying to compare "feats" and "canon" and "lore" and so on is playground argument.

I step into this forum from time to time to offer arguments based in fact and reality, that is, the context in which these "battles" would occur: stories.

Really, it's all that's valid.

I enjoy bringing it down here every now and then to see who I can shake out of complacency, maybe get some real discussion started. Doesn't always work, but every now and then...

@greatkirbysghost: So ignore consistent feats, lore, and any form of CV regulation, and replace it with "I don't like the character, therefore he loses, muh subjective" got it.

I erm, hate to say this, but you won't get anywhere with that. If you want fan fiction, which is what you base your opinions off of, then go and do it where it's accepted. You'll just look silly here.

@greatkirbysghost: Let's be honest here, Sentry would solo this fight BECAUSE he's so boring. The writers intent on all his appearances is to make Sentry as overpowered as possible, and the only thing holding him back is the fact that he is mentally ill.
