Typically most high tier and up have some degree of super speed to go along with their strength and other various powers. I'm looking for heroes have are powerful yet don't display vasts amounts of super speed, if any at all. Are the any immensely powerful characters that depend solely on their durability/strength (or whatever other powers) rather than speed?

Edit: With speed, I of course mean combative speed. Travel speed is a whole different subject and isn't always applicable in a fight.

Juggernaut is most notable one, Colossus, Luke Cage, Thing, probably Strong guy. You will probably get some jokes saying Thor.

I'm really thinking high tier and up. Luke Cage isn't high tier I don't think unless he got a massive upgrade. Juggs is a good one tho. Kind of forgot he existed.

@nerevarine_11: Yeah, this one... don't look like so fast. In just three panels he get blitzed by peak human, Nomad, and stunned so hard that he dropped hammer. All the time Thor was barely moving.

I am thinking Thor, but it depends really... whether or not someone who has the speed of a LION is even remotely considered fast.

So Thor is street level in terms of combat speed? This is surprising.

They probably made a PM to arrange getting that avatar because of something I said in another thread where I thought a banned user was back.....quite amusing that they waste their time because of me.

What slow feats does General Eiling have?

?

Am I missing something? I've never known Eiling to have any quantified feats that puts him on par with really fast characters?

Eilling has trouble tagging Batman and Huntress not to mention he was having trouble with Orion's dog too.

  • Thats Odell Beckham Jr......He plays the Wide Receiver for the New York giants.
  • And hes not fat, he actually among the smallest players in the league(5 foot 11 barley 200) becuase of his position being wide Receiver..Which favors finesse and hand eye coordination over raw strength and speed..

@nerevarine_11: He got blitzed at Mach 3 as well, which isn't really that big for a comic character..

Any high tier that was given a fight or tagged by a street leveler like Cap, Panther, Wolvie, Bats, Deathstroke...

So... SS, Gladiator, Hyperion, Superman, Flash... sheesh it would be easier to list those that are fast :S

Thor isn't slownfor god sakes he can move as fast as lightning as Adam warlock will tell you and on other occasions. Anyway Juggernaut hands down is slow but powerful and I think fits the bill very well

Thor is surely slow enough, but I don't know if he is powerful enough to qualify for this thread.

That doesn't seem to be the case, but still why was he banned?

So comicvine become a harassment/Cyberstalking site, where apparently you are not allowed to have your own preferences???

Please lets not pretend that this is a casual and genuine thread and not pattern, we can pretend... But that would discredit a lot what we think still are Cv moderation standards...

Cv is now a place where some users think they can control, influence the all site and its working foundations, a place where pay homage to banned users like (never give up) is cool an the right attitude just because NGU shared the same mindset... A user that after get banned troll and sent inappropriate content to several users (including myself), just because they like a fictional character that in his mind rivals his fav. fictional character...

Seems a really terrible place to be at, right moderation @sc@jashro44@renchamp???

@atheistknowledge: @nerevarine_11: @darthaznable:

Don't do this. I know all you guys (and others) are in a group PM. This is a final warning, don't use this website to create drama to annoy or frustrate Thor fans you view as sensitive or can't take a joke. Sitting inn a group thread thinking of ways to rile up users this way, its good to make friends you are close with, but when you create drama its just tiring.

You should all know better, so I give a strong recommendation to all of you and feel free to pass this on to other people in the group PM, I will start giving permanent bans to users who persist with drama, and minor trolling.
