Almost every medium of entertainment has dividers that their content falls under: mainstream and underground.
In the realm of online debating and fictional character battles, the types of series that a user has to choose from are split into these two categories most of the time.
As with other forms of entertainment such as movies, TV shows, music, and books, the "mainstream" content are usually overexposed, controversial, and most importantly, oversaturated. When discussing comics, the popular giants who dominate their field immediately come to mind.
Specifically for Asian comics, people have seen enough of the HST: manga like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece (and the new generation successors that vie to fill their shoes such as MHA and Seven Deadly Sins) have long since enjoyed perennial popularity, and continue to constitute most of the matches made on these forums.
For me, I feel that debating underused characters acts as a relief from the mainstream toxicity. Obscure comics have a certain allure to them. Introducing a new series to the Vine gives me a certain joy, since it's like showing people hidden treasure (especially if the feats are good.) Moreso a series from a relatively untouched medium, manhua, which Iron Ladies is a part of.
This is a respect thread for Mu Siyun, the main protagonist of the chinese sci-fi harem manhua, who rose to impressive heights of power in a relatively short amount of time. I hope, that as a result of this, I will be able to entice more people to experience something new.
Respect Fleet Admiral Mu Siyun, The Heaven Defying Dragon King
Mu Siyun was an unemployed university graduate, wasting away towards the end of the 22nd century. However, he was the smartest graduate to major in Political History. After accidentally sending an application to Beiyang Fleet, he was accepted and somehow, immediately became the new Fleet Admiral. Using his vast knowledge on politics and history, Mu seeks to expose and crush the corruption that has overtaken humanity and set order in the universe with an iron fist. All with the help of his trusty space harem, numbering over three thousand women.
Powers and Abilities
Mu fights in a very unusual way that I'll go into detail explaining later. In a nutshell, he controls multiple "Soul Soldiers" which are physically separate entities that he controls to fight for him at will. They are all individual and sentient beings, but are also all apart of him. The abilities he's shown across all of his bodies are as follows:
- Superhuman Strength
- Superhuman Speed
- Superhuman durability, endurance and stamina
- Sound Manipulation
- Soul Manipulation
- Construct Creation
- Energy Manipulation
Which are the most pressing I can think of.
Everything You Need to Know
In Iron Ladies, humanity had expended all resources during the beginning of the 21st century, and multiple nations began to build interstellar fleets in order to find new planets across the universe for resources. By the end of the 22nd century, humans had conquered over 10 million planets.
Daxia Alliance is the strongest military alliance, comprised of countless fleets including the three most powerful fleets: Beiyang, Kunlun, and Three-Legged Crow.
The main fighting force for a fleet are called Angels. This is a good description of them.
That is an explanation of what Angels are and the classes they are divided into, but here is a description of how they are made and their abilities.
Mu isn't an Angel so the main takeaway here is what Holy Blood does. It perfectly combines the flesh of the recipient with carbon steel and allows them to reproduce it themselves to create constructs and their battle forms.
Mu gained his abilities after being dumped in a pool of Holy Blood. There while submerged he encountered a member of the Holy Weaver race, who tried to take over his body. However Mu's soul resistance allowed him not to get possessed, and the Dragon Empress gave herself to him instead. This made Mu a Soul Tier. Dragon Queen (one of the victims of the Reaver race Empress) also later became his first Soul Soldier.
If you have been reading my scans thus far, you should be familiar with the Holy Weaver race as well as the tiers of the Angels. Soul Tier is the strongest tier. Here is Mu's explanation to Ding Yuan and Zhen Yuan about his Soul Soldiers, which he uses as a result of his tier.
Now Mu has multiple Soul Soldiers. I'll post all the relevant ones.
- Dragon Queen
- Copper Mouth
- (Battle Form) Shura Demon of Melody
- (Battle Puppet) Beiyang's Main Canons
Of course, Mu can fight with his real body too. He has a couple forms that he can take on.
So I'll format this respect thread by posting feats for each of his forms, soldiers or battle puppets. Or at least the ones that have shown feats.
Let's start with the show stopper:
Heaven Defying Dragon Queen
Dragon Queen was the first Soul Body Mu used. She debuted on the Battle of Insect Queen Planet. These scans will show Mu as a male, but he later confirms that he was using Dragon Queen during that battle.
I won't include the feats of DQ Mu slicing through the Insect Planet's fodder. The first notable feat completed was when he was swallowed by an Insect and use "Soul Invasion", an inherent ability for Soul Tiers seemingly, in order to take over the insect and metallify it (transmute something to metal).
So a cool feat for possession/transmutation.
The next feat is when he shattered General Insect's armor with a single construct he made. This is very impressive because the Insect's armor was stated to be more durable than Metal Planet's Metal.
Metal Planet's metal was referenced many times throughout the series; i's basically used as a threshold for weapons. This metal is vastly more durable than steel, as weapons made out of this material is capable of piercing Earth Tier Angel battle forms.
Then Mu released a sonic attack. He resonated at a frequency that was specifically designed to shatter the offspring of Insect Queen, which he was capable of doing so because he had read the biological composition of the insects while he was swallowed by the one he metalified.
Mu releasing another sound wave that he uses to hack the technology and computer's of Beiyang's Fleet transporter system. (the people in control had locked out the Angel's who were retreating, so Mu forcibly hacked the systems).
Uses Sonar to locate Ding Yuan.
Here Mu absorbs Ding's Holy Blood into his body and converts it into an energy blast.
Mu himself states that he raised the combustion rate of the Holy Blood until it's explosion would be 50,000x stronger than the nuke in Hiroshima. He then compressed the explosion into a laser ray that was a few milimeters thin and fired it into the planet's core, killing Insect Queen.
Hiroshima's yield was 15 kilotons. 50k times that would be 750,000 kilotons (or 750 megatons) which is about large island level or greater in terms of sheer destructive capacity. I also used the nukemap and my personal favorite boom table to see the damage real world equivalents of the damage.
Reads the mind of Insect Queen's Yuan.
