The idea that Onslaught could even do that is ridiculous, but so is him sealing Juggernaut INSIDE the crimson gem. I still haven't figured that one out. And the merging thing he basically had to kidnap them for that. It wasn't like a beam. I don't... Well, unless I missed something Ultron doesn't have "access" to the Phalanx. I don't know much about the Extremis thing but it seems like something would've had to take control of from Iron Man? Since I read the graph-novel of the Phalanx thing, I am pretty sure the Phalanx isn't tech he has access to. He just merged with the Phalanx, which is a sentient being, for 1 story arc, and at the end he was defeated. Which was PIS bc he shouldn't have lost. All his beams suddenly became HORRIBLY inaccurate in the final fight, it was so stupid. Plus, um, these two statements... So absorbing Nate and Franklin didn't give him a significant boost? In we have never considered him with the powers of Nate or Franklin, because those are separate characters and not Onslaught. He clearly gained powers after having absorbed them into his being. Even in the very first draft BaSSiL drafted Onslaught and Franklin Richards so he could argue during teams that he would get the evolved form of Onslaught. and... Cable, big deal that he hasn't been judge with something in past drafts. What don't you get about throwing out old conventions, judging everyone at their self sustained peak? What came before doesn't mean a lot really in this draft. The Onslaught thing is "throwing out old conventions" as much as Cable getting that, considering that Soldier X level was extremely short and his powers were burning out. That is not "sustained" and as someone said, even pairing him with Dom strongly implied you were getting, well, Cable. And Swamp Thing has always been Swamp Thing, how the heck does he get a ring and Mongul and Cy-Supes don't? I'm pretty sure John Stewart has had power-ups for longer but I didn't bother to go check because, well, I didn't see a notice that said "short-term items and merges and temporary boosts now sold here" at the front of the draft. Man, this is longer than my arguments for my own characters.
