Respect The Grim Reaper (Complete Respect Thread)

No Caption Provided

That which has been duly sown, shall now be harvested, by the man who killed the trio of Avengers... I... the Grim Reaper!!

Introduction

Grim Reaper is a old school Avengers villain, going all the way back to their very first run, mainly related due to being the brother of Wonder Man and dying a lot. Apart from that, he's been given amp after amp over the years to bump him up from his regular crazy self, so it'll be wise to address them.

For the most part, he's just a crazy guy with a high tech scythe, which does most of the work for him.

Respect The Magus (Complete Respect Thread)

No Caption Provided

Me machine boi

Introduction

The Magus (but not that other Magus smh) is the father of Warlock, who's some D tier X-Men guy who doesn't appear much. Basically, Magus is Warlock, but less morals/far stronger when it comes to standard powers and whatnot.

For some reason, he's got some stupidly busted feats of strength despite being a very vague X-Men/New Mutants villain.

Scan 1/2- Rogue attempting to drain him doesn't really do anything outside of sending him flying, and he compliments the X-Men for a decent fight. While he was unaffected, Rogue was for a good amount of time completely transformed into a member of his species forcefully (Uncanny X-Men #192)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

Scan 1- Infects Limbo demons with the virus, showcasing that it can target non-humanoid creatures as well. (The New Mutants #47)

Scan 2- The Virus from this fairly small exposure spreads enough to almost completely corrupt Limbo itself, making portals travelling to there be infected with the Virus.

Scan 3- Eventually when Magik returns, all of her demons are infected with it, and she is incapable of fighting them off without being infected herself. (The New Mutants #50)

Scan 4- Magik afterwards describes the Virus's effect on Limbo itself as like her body being ripped into pieces, showcasing how powerful of a impact it had on her control over the realm.

Scan 1/2- Takes over a whole planet with his Virus and rips it apart in the process, making the oceans boil and ruining the atmosphere. (The New Mutants #50)

Scan 3/4- It takes a amped Magma with Xavier's psychic powers to keep the planet together, as it otherwise would have cracked and been destroyed otherwise.

Telepathic Resistance

No Caption Provided

Karma being amped by the psychic strength of Xavier can only freeze him for a heartbeat (The New Mutants #50)

Conclusion

Magus boasts impressive physical stats, being able to rip apart stars and planets with considerable ease, as well as technopathic powers that can infect entire dimensions in a relatively short amount of time. On top of this, he can also counter other technopaths by draining their energy and rendering their own techpathy useless in the process. Despite the usual X-Men villains being nerfed in some way, this guy really hasn't.

Respect Kang The Conqueror (Complete Respect Thread)

No Caption Provided

Greater men than you have trembled at my name -- Lesser men have fainted at its mention!

Introduction

Kang's one of the main big Avengers villains, running all the way to their eighth issue way back in 1963. As a villain, he's likely got one of the most confusing chronological histories around, due to it being consistently changed and modified due to his time travel nonsense that he got up to over the years. As such, this RT will only focus specifically on the main incarnation of Kang and his capabilities.

This RT will likely be mega long, and I've estimated I'm going to need two parts to finish going through it. This is one of the bigger ones, through, surprisingly, not the biggest.

Respect The Norn Stones (Complete Respect Thread? Idk)

No Caption Provided

small pic for small RT

Introduction

Norn Stones: no one knows where they came from or exactly how they work, but everyone wants them. In a sense, they essentially work as a magical plot device, being able to be written as doing anything at any time because of how vaguely defined they are as a object. The closest to a actual explanation was that they respond to the user's wishes, making them almost like a genie, but, erm, a bunch of rocks.

Here, I'm going to go through all of the recorded showings of the Norn Stones and go through what they've done over the years. Spoilers- they've done a lot.

Conclusion

Norn Stones are basically the Asgardian equivalent to a Swiss Army Knife: most of the functions aren't ever gonna get used, but it's still useful to have around just in case. The Norn Stones are also quite powerful, being able to threaten Hell Lords and Teambusters respectively with their power. Not the best in terms of raw power, but, then again, it doesn't need to be.

Respect Krona (Complete Respect Thread?)

No Caption Provided

Don't catch KRONAvirus, ha

Introduction

Krona's another Green Lantern heavyweight, being mostly known for being the first guy to construct the tech that would eventually become the Lantern Ring (his Power Gauntlet, which'll be covered) as well as accidentally causing Crisis on Infinite Earths to occur, through that'd be retconned like a million times.

Despite multiple changes in power, he's pretty damn strong for what it's worth, and frankly, he was the strongest in terms of Green Lantern villains until Volthoom became a thing.

Scan 1/2/3- Krona's very essence on Earth causes major geological disasters to occur all over it. This is explained as "Evil Waves" so yes, Krona is such a villain that even the Earth can't stand to have him around (Green Lantern #40)

Conclusion

All in all, Krona is a beastly teambuster, simply put. With supreme energy manipulation and projection capabilities, he can deal with any source of energy based offence and counter it. His mental powers mean that he can fight mentally as well as physically, and his mind might be his most dangerous weapon.

With the Cosmic Egg amp, Krona becomes capable of busting galaxies and removing whole planets from existence, becoming even more powerful as a result.

Respect Kurse/Lady Kurse (Complete Respect Thread)

Malekith! I shall find you and wring the life from you drop by drop for what you did to me!

Introduction

Kurse is one of the stranger Marvel heavyweights around. While he does have a ton of great physical feats, a lack of appearances and inconsistent showings mean that his status is muddy and hard to really understand. Here, I'm going to try and set a standard for his power level that hopefully doesn't seem too off the wall.

I'll also be covering Lady Kurse, the elf who would take on his armor after his (implied) death, through they'll not be in a separate section because, frankly, she does nothing special in the 10 issues she's in and Classic Kurse could do anything she could do.

Thor needs the Belt of Strength to fight Kurse as he knows that he is too powerful for him to fight by standard levels.

Conclusion

All in all, Kurse provides more or less a exercise in scaling: to get anything good out of him, you have to know Thor's stats in detail so you can then point to this guy and go "he's 2x as good as this" in order to make him seem effective. Most feats are based around fighting characters than actual standalone feats of strength.

Lady Kurse.....isn't worth the gum on my shoe.

Respect Larfleeze, the Avatar of Avarice (Complete Respect Thread)

No Caption Provided

It is in fact his

Introduction

Larfleeze is awesome. He's a perverted version of a Lantern Corp, in short: rather than be a army of Lantern members, there's only one member of the Orange (orange here representing greed) Lantern Corps: himself, lol. Larfleeze is the sole member because he's legitimately too greedy to share his power with anyone else in the universe, and as such, he's far stronger than any sole Lantern in existence, bar obvious god tier guys.

Another thing that differs Larfleeze from regular Lanterns is that he is a collectaholic to the extreme, taking it to even living souls, as when Larfleeze kills someone, he can trap him inside his Orange Lantern and turn them into a construct slave, allowing him to use them at any point to do his bidding. He's actually got quite a legitimate army of constructs, numbering in the dozens. This makes him rather deadly as he can swarm people with them.

Here, we'll go through all of his stuff and see how good he is.

Conclusion

All in all, Larfleeze is a highly impressive character with a TON of good feats to go around, with a absorption ability that allows him to make gains out of losses. Throwing him in with a team that can exploit that would work best, as well as the fact that he's almost impossible to knock out, and when actually motivated, he can do some massive far reaching damage. Teambuster? Perhaps. I'd definitely say he's a contender for the title.
