Rai is a character from the Valiant Universe, his story set in future "New Japan" during 4000AD. His powers are very similar to Bloodshot's, but with a few differences. After being blown away by the first four issues of this series, I decided that I'd keep up a respect thread as new issues come out. So, go ahead and respect Rai.
>>>Note<<< - Read scans starting from the right to the left.
1-3- Slashes a raddies gun before he even realized he was there, and then slices him so precisely that if he moves, his intestines will spill out his stomach.
4- Walks out of a building-busting explosion with no real damage.
5- Casually breaks a wooden door down.
6. Sprints in a blur.
7-8. Tanks being punched down through several stories.
1-2- Was able to survive in the vacuum of space for a time, clinging onto a metal wire. He climbs back up and then shifts through Japan's electronic network.
3-5- Kills a couple of monsters.
6-7- Rai has hearing far above that of a regular human, allowing him to hear a bomb ticking inside the skull of aforementioned monster. Disposes of it.
8- Can turn off his pain receptors on a whim.
9-10- Annihilates a group of very expensive guards in a blur of motion.
11-13- Annihilates a couple dozen raddies, all armed with firearms, without getting shot once.
14- Sprints in a blur of motion. Holds an explosive to his chest, tanks it.
1-2- Raddie talks about how Rai can't be killed, can produce swords from nothing, and can shift in and out of the environment in Japan. While they speculate as to whether or not the explosion killed him, Rai saunters over and decapitates one of them.
3-8 Awesome fight. Shows insane reaction time, dodging bullets from all angles. Incredibly acrobatic ability, leaping between vehicles, shredding up raddies. Gets hit by a car full on - no problem. And leaps over missiles well after they were fired.
1-4- Bloodlusted slaughter.
5-6- Reacts to a high-caliber sniper round after it was fired, the bullet only grazing him.
7-11- Shows insane endurance by sprinting all over Japan without showing any kind of fatigue.
Rai has nanites in his bloodstream, the same as Bloodshot. This is the rundown on Bloodshot's nanites, which have probably been improved 2,000 years later.
Handbook entry. Enhanced speed, strength and agility; mastery of martial arts, hand-to-hand combat, swordsmanship and armed combat.
