I am looking forward to what happens next with Deku. I feel like he hasn't had anymore major development since the muscular fight unless you count his relationship with Bakugo. I do hope something happens soon though. I didn't care for the lady nagant stuff.
Bakugo. The movie is canon and he's gotten stronger since than.
So Heroes Rising is canon?. I never chose to believe whether it was because the fandom was split saying it was and it wasnt and that Horishoki never confirmed it but if you say it is then I believe it. Since Bakugo did lose OFA at the end of it, how can Bakugo beat Chimera? Can he find a way to incap him like Shoto and the other 1A members did?
We've seen nine in the manga. I think there was also was a statement but I would have to double check.I know he said the first movie was canon and I know Horikoshi had some input in the second. We also know Deku got a new support item called "mid gauntlet" from america, and we've seen Melissa Shield in the team up series manga. So it does seem like the movies are canon.
I think he could just beat Chimera down. Deku in the movie seemed to be using pre-time skip percentages. Bakugo can keep up with 35% and when he sparred with Deku in there game of tag after Deku started to train with black whip (meaning he was at 20% at least) Bakugo would win and Deku wouldn't tag him. So I would say post-time skip Bakugo operates at a tier of skill and speed where he could team bust Shoto, Kirashima, Tsyu, and Ida at the levels they were at in the movie. Chimera is stronger but Bakugo can still wear him down I would say. I don't think Chimera tanked anything on par with Bakugo's explosions.
