This feels like the dark ages of Marvel again.
@ecstaticgrace: Batman bested the JLA because he had years to study the main roster and figure out each and every one of their weaknesses. Not to mention he knew all of them personally and got information that's inaccessible to most of the people on DC Earth. These are all luxuries Batman doesn't have for this fight.
Best case scenario, he calls in the Hellbat and still gets beaten by anyone from team 2.
As mediocre as these past few runs have been, this definitely has a "Spider-Man" feel to the story. Kind of reminds me of Grim Hunt, Maximum Carnage, or another epic/tragedy title. Not that all of them were great, or even good, but at least this new run fits.
Wow seriously? Maybe I want a serious movie. Maybe I'm tired of the mid-battle jokes that ruined what would have otherwise been good fights (looking at you, Thor 2).
And I'm sorry, but is this an action? Or a comedy? Because last I checked they are two very genres.
I didn't see Sin City so I could laugh, and I didn't see Deadpool so I could get some thrills from mediocre fight scenes.
Both are great movies, but the premises serve two totally different purposes. You can't take a dark and serious story concept and fill it with jokes (not like Sweeney Todd dark humor, I mean like lighthearted humor) throughout the movie while still trying to make it dark and gritty, because that's just awkward writing.
Think about how awkward Sin City would have been if they tried to insert jokes when Marv tortured Kevin. That would be disturbingly morbid.
And you can't take lighthearted (but serious) premises, and fill it with intense, tragic gore scenes. Deadpool was funny because it was MEANT to be funny. It was just a lighthearted, for-the-faint-of-heart, dark humored movie. How disturbing would it be if, let's say they had a few tragic intense scenes in that movie? Would it still be funny if Deadpool's girlfriend was killed and the ending scene was of him holding his dying girlfriend immediately followed by rolling credits? NO. Everyone in the theater would be like "wtf...?"
So, whatever, this is just a bad review I'm going to ignore, and I'm just going to go enjoy the crap out of Batman v Superman.
3-Minute Expert: Who is Hugo Strange?
The bad guy no one knew until Arkham City came out.
I would like to point out that Nero is in the 1,000,000 ton range, if not, higher. So Dante tanking Nero's hits does show that he has enough blunt force durability to the point where he would not be one-shot by class One billion ton+ opponents.
As you can see, Nero easily crushes the savior's head and shakes the entire island/peninsula with the shock wave of his attack.
