    Inty -- if you could, for future arguments, could you let me know what you actually think a primary magic-using character would do to Dane in particular, when no direct spells would have any effect on him?

    i pretty much see things the same way as inty, for the same reasons.

    for parasite, i just don't know what war machine is going to do to hurt him that isn't going to just... basically feed him.

    I'll get you more on this, for sure. Just not when I'm between my fifth and sixth conference call for the day.

    Can someone post matches?

    It's 3 - 1 Chimmers, not 2 - 1, I believe.

    EDIT: PS, I'll trade you an OSU championship to reverse my matches?

    In this case, it's not that I see a magic-user hurting Dane. It's that the way I'm viewing descriptions and scans, I don'tsee post AvX Illyana as a magic-user. The way I'm reading it (and, if I'm reading it wrong and you or someone else wants to show me good proof, I can look at that match again) is that she's now able to funnel her connection with Limbo into pure energy projections - not wholly magical in nature. She's not casting a spell, she's funneling energy and using it.

    Um, I don't think I've seen a single entry for her with an update to her powers that way. It's all still listed as magic. The only additional non-magical ability she has is a near-immunity to TP.

    I always read it as magic as well. Although I hadn't really begun to research that match.

    I'm quoting a summary here, emphasis mine


    Magik has undergone an upgrade. She has been shown to be able to conjure and project powerful blasts of energy from her Limbo dimension as an extension of her powers rather than her magic.

    Again, haven't read AvX, so relying on trusted summary sites

    I'll get some good stuff up for the Ghost Rider vs. Ms. Marvel match later today.

    That's even worse, since the Ebony Blade would then reflect the beams (zee: Zeus scan) rather than absorb... :p

    Also, re: Ares v Skaar: they've already tussled. Skaar is like Khan -- "intelligent but not experienced"...

    Those scans are nice but they don't show much of anything. Plus you forgot to post the scan where Skaar ends the fight.

    I hadn't asked before but does Skaar have his Old-Strong powers for the draft? I think it was taken from him by SS to keep him under control but I am not sure currently.Also unsure what his peak is considered. He knocked Juggernaut into space. I'm not sure if that is a good feat anymore since several people seem to be doing it now. Still pretty impressive strength feat for Skaar methinks.

    Judges, friends my compatriots?

    I don't know about the oldpower, but I read the Juggs issue although it was awhile ago and I can't recall EXACTLY how he did it but it was more due to brains than brawns. He did, IIRC, prove he could tangle with Juggs at least for awhile before that.

    He used his old power to do that to juggernaut.

    I would assume that he should get the old power in this draft, he still has it in comics.

    Leans, why not?

    Description: Meatbags (DarkEagle) vs.Riders of the Storm (heels)

    Superboy / Red Devil vs. Holocaust
    Holocaust. Don't even bother.

    Xavin / Hulkling vs. Mandarin
    Probably Mandarin

    Everything Right is Wrong Again (The_Chim) vs. The Replacement Killers (dp4m)

    Geo-Force (forfeit) vs. MODOK (Prep)
    Skaar vs. Ares
    Skaar. I just don't get the Ares-love although I would've voted him over Ms. Marvel.

    Unlimited Power (Jordan1Kenobi)vs. Minch's Misfits (yodaminch)

    Sebastian Shaw vs. Deadpool/Taskmaster (forfeit)

    Ghost Rider vs. Ms. Marvel
    Speaking of which... Ghost Rider

    The Marvel Mashers (DLotE) vs.Poor Communication Kills (EF)

    Cyclops/Jean Grey vs. Hellstorm
    Probably Hellstorm? Iono, Jean has some power.

    Atlas trumped with Human Torch vs. Metamorpho (prepared)
    Kind of leaning Metamorpho here. Kind of. Atlas will be hard to beat. But it will be hard for Atlas to beat him too...

    Born Ready (whiteeagle)vs.Mikaboshi's Heartbreakers (D1)

    Noh-Varr vs. Gorilla Grodd (prepared)
    Grodd

    Storm/Iceman vs. Maxima
    Leaning Maxima, but Storm has impressive TP resistance and good offensive power. She would probably need Iceman to help though, and I'm not sure he'd be able to with the TP and such.

    Ghost Rider vs. Ms. Marvel

    I said I'd get something good up for this battle, but I thought about it, and it seems quite straight forward to me. I've been watching season two of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes recently. She's cool and quite powerful, one of the most powerful on the team actually, but her power isn't near what Ghost Rider is capable of. This is the guy who got destroyed by the Hulk, then came back to life even stronger. He just doesn't die. Ms. Marvel could try blasting him and doing all that, but it's not really gonna hurt him, as he's been able to withstand much worse. She's fast, so might be able to dodge some of his hell fire, although even Thor hasn't been able to dodge it before. Then there's his penance stare, which could make this fight end quite quickly.

    The Ares love is he's a Greek god (which is a whole other deal than Asgardians) who is a master of all fighting forms ever invented and just under the top-tier strength guys (Hercules is the only Greek pantheon stronger than he is, though if prepped that's taken care of too)? And he's got an adamantium axe by default?

    PS - he is also explicitly not susceptible to gas!

    Everyone is susceptible to gas. Just got done watching The Avengers before work, now I am all amped up to go save the world. Or cook peoples food, whatever comes first.

    Seen Cap 2 yet? It's pretty sweet. Did something I've never (to my knowledge) done before. Watched a movie in theatres (Cap) and then watched a movie at someone's house (Frozen).

    Let it go has been in my head since I've watched it, and I've listened to 3 different versions.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best movie ever, even better than The Avengers. I'm not the only one to say that, as the critics have too. I'm really looking forward to Spider-Man, X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy, they all look great.

    Don't know if this will sway any judges, but more in the realm of "comp fights" and the fact that Ares is way more experienced...
