"Excellent topic.Like others have mentioned, a hero is only as great as the threat he/she faces. I think it's important to make the threat to the hero believable and palpable. You need to feel like the hero is in danger to be drawn into the story.A good villain explores the nature of the hero. So I think first you need to examine the hero in question. What are the hero's weaknesses, and then how do you exploit them?Like, one question people ask is "Is Batman as Crazy as the People he Fights?" A good villain exploits that and holds up a mirror to Batman, making batman question his mission and if he's crossed the line to crazy too (Joker). batman is also just a man, so a good villain pushes him to the limits of human endurance (scarecrow).it's not necessary that a villain have powers exactly opposite to the hero. Lex and Superman have a great dynamic, but so do Superman and Zod.As for stupid throw away villains, I think they're needed too. If a hero never gets a clean victory, you start to question his ability to succeed as a hero. And besides, Condiment King is hilarious."
"Guyver wins, no problem. Sho goes Gigantic and blows the f**k out of Spidey. If that doesn't work, Sho goes Gigant Exceed and steps on him. "
I don't speak Guyver English...er anyway, I'm just talking about base form Guyver. I'm sure Spider-Man has some ridiculous form that could beat the dog**** out of Guyver but I'm just talking about regular Spidey here.
"bumi is way experienced and psycho.toph is blind and not that experienced "
lol That's pretty much it. @Korg said:
"People are underestimating Bumi in this thread, both physically, and mentally. Toph is blind. Bumi knows this, and can use it against her, as I already mentioned. I don't see Toph walking away with a win unless Bumi lets her go, or they happen to be surrounded by metal instead of rock. Toph can see using her earthbending, but if Bumi isn't touching earth, that doesn't mean anything, and Toph is just plain blind. Say Bumi jumps up and lands behind Toph. She turns around to face him, and he hits her from behind with a boulder. Toph is now unconscious. Bumi is also ripped, and I doubt very much that Toph is going to have greater endurance than a master who is 100 years older than her, and is in that kind of shape. If anything, a lengthy fight favors Bumi, because he is unpredictable, and Toph is impatient. She is likely to run headlong into a trap that Bumi sets up. "
