Poll: Your thoughts on Faora's feat? (60 votes)

Pretty damn good 52%
Meh 18%
Spider-Man could that 10%
Nighty night Thor 20%

I've seen Faora coming up a lot more recently in the battle forums but noticed this feat gets overlooked a lot on there and was wondering what's everyone's thoughts on it?

@darkthunder: How is it an outlier?

Because he doesn't like it.

OT: It's pretty good. Nighty night Thor.

MCU spider-man through SCALING becomes star level (Thor is star level and failed to hurt Thanos while Spider-Man staggered him multiple times) and no sells that attack

@godzilla44: Is it that midland guy?

Don't know the veracity of Faora having nuke level throws though but it's impressive she threw Clark hard enough to seriously dent that thing

I mean it's a pretty good feat for lower end Kryptonians but it's not "nighty nighting" Thor any time soon, we are talking about a guy that no sold this:

Great feat. She threw him with such force that after travelling several hundred feet and through a building wall, he still retained enough force to wreck the entire side of a thick steel bank vault.

Though, the fact that it was Superman doesn’t really contribute to its impressiveness, he was a 240 lbs dead weight when she threw him, she didn’t overcome his strength to accomplish this.

That seems like it's at least a few hundred tons. Likely superior to what Wonder Woman and Steppenwolf could do. Not on the level of the other Kryptonians, though.

It's not underrated, I see it all the time. I will say Hulk and Kurse throwing the boulders is more impressive because Superman is like what? 240 pounds of deadweight in that scene, compared to the several tons of the boulders.

He crashed into a building and came out the other side. There's more than two walls inside a building. To me that is more impressive than denting a bank vault. Tony also kept going after the building.

No...not at all. I'm saying a bank vault is a lot more durable than a building wall.

@jashro44: Let me explain how fallacious your argument is.

You said that bank vaults have survived nukes. But never in history has a nuke directly impacted a bank vault, and then the bank vault survived. What I presume you mean is that a nuke goes off somewhere, and then miles away a random bank vault survived being within the blast radius.

Buildings have also survived nuclear bombs by that definition.

Rather than accusing me of fallacies why don't you do some research? There was a bank vault that famously survived the Hiroshima bombing.

Those buildings constructed of steel and concrete in Hiroshima were best able to stand the explosion and hence protected their contents to some degree. …The explosions cracked the exteriors, tore the cement floors into pieces and the fire which followed gutted the buildings of all else. Those buildings constructed of reinforced concrete only, such as the Teikou [sic] Bank, were damaged to a larger degree. Those built of wood or brick were completely demolished.
Two Mosler bank vaults, one being located at the Teikou [sic] Bank in Hiroshima and the other located in the Geibi Bank in Kure, were in excellent condition and were in operation.

@the_hajduk: @jashro44:

Concrete tensile strength: 300-700 psi.

Common bank vault yield strength: ~220,000 psi.

People here always underestimate how tough shit is, you're all so off constantly.

"These characters are 100-tonners." "Nu-uh, they're 1,000-tonners."

Like, this shit is always so fucking stupid because it's obvious they're all so beyond that if anyone on this site knew a fucking iota of physics or material science.

Your quote says that "buildings constructed of steel and concrete were best able to stand the explosion, and protected their contents to some degree." That right there proves my point. A bank vault can't survive a direct hit from a nuke. It just so happens that a random bank vault happened to survive due to various factors (like being shielded by the building it was inside of)

Killer Croc broke a bank vault. Raimi Doc Ock broke a bank vault. I'm not taking away from Faora's feat, but throwing someone through one end of a building and out the other side (who knows how many walls and other stuff got in Tony's path) is pretty much on the same tier.

You didn't read the full quote. Buildings that were constructed of concrete only like the Tekiou bank were damaged to a much larger drgee than the ones made of concrete and steel. The Teikou bank was completely destroyed and the article even says they rebuilt the building around the still standing banks.

There is also the information posted in post 42.

As I said it doesn't take a nuke to destroy a bank vault. But a bank vault is far more durable than a concrete wall to the point I would say Faora's feat is better.

@jashro44: The information in post 42 is incomplete. First of all Cull broke more than concrete. That building was probably steel reinforced. If Iron Man broke multiple walls then he went through quite a lot of steel reinforcement.

Secondly he posted the yield strength of concrete vs bank vault... but the bank vault didn't reach its yield strength. Superman did not penetrate it. Iron Man DID penetrate.

Iron Man also penetrated multiple surfaces. He first smashed into the sidewalk and cratered the ground. Then he busted through one wall, and then at least one more on his way out. Each of these surfaces would have slowed his momentum, but he still had the force to break completely through, then go sliding through the park and break a tree.

If you want to say Faora's feat is a bit stronger that's fine. I just don't see a super big difference.

Brittle materials have low tensile strength and high compressive strength and in most cases concrete gets crushed ie compressive failure. And thats not how bending works. Deformation in nearly every case happens part by part thus greatly reducing the force. Otherwise making a 6 cm horizontal bend on an 0.01 cm thick aliminum soda can would take 0.0001 x 0.06 x 276 MPa yield strength = 1656 Newtons. And obviously it does not take that much force any one can casually bend them.

Unrelated to topic but: What you said in another thread is correct. It looks like Ares really does vaporize the ground and thats nuke level.
