Pr/Raoul's Second Post
Ok, this is my first, proper 'why smurph's prep won't beat my team' post... I would have done it sooner, but as some of you know, i'm having some personal issues that have yet to be resolved, and it makes it even harder for me to get motivated to take part in a tourney... Hell, i don't even know how i'm doing this now, i'm just gonna try and give those who actually read this tourney their money's worth...
and those scans took a frickin lifetime to load... seriously... i didn't even get to read half of em... i did try though...
Ok, here goes...
First we have the Optimizer, a very nice piece of tech i'll admit... When used, it increases power exponentially... Very nice. That scan is a tad misleading, though... There's nothing to say that the energy being directed at Doom is actually hurting him, just that the amount of it becomes too much to bear... That's a bit iffy, imo... Doom doesnt look to be in pain, he just doesn't realise what's about to happen, imo... It's like another 'Cyclops overloads Bishop, but the energy wasn't actually hurting him at the time' thing... AND it looked like energy was being fed through it, so it came out in beam form... Even IF that energy was going to kill my team (lightspeed energy manipulation by 7 jason's ftw), how are you going to hit us when we move faster than you do?
Next, we have the Anti-Galactus suits, and again, i'll admit something. That's a pretty cool concept. But that's all it is, a concept... Smurph talks about their standard armaments being augmented, but what armaments are those? I haven't read Fantastic Four 557 (i think it is), so i don't know... Smurph?
Then you talk about the augmentations...
Phantom Zone projector? Pretty snazzy, i'll admit... that's why we built them ourselves...
Class 4 Disintegrator? Cool, but how does it work? Does it fire pulses, a beam, how fast does its blast move? What size is it?
Gravity Polarizers... Nice concept, if my six amazos didnt have the powers of Geo-Force. Artficial gravity or not, you sure your gravity can't be countered by Geo-Force (with Bart/Diana's speed of thought) crushing them into scrap?
The Sonic Shark...
i love that...
Good weapon, but, again, thats surfer, on earth... he couldnt possibly be moving at lightspeed, yet on this planet, 9 of my people will be... I'm not so sure those nifty missiles can keep up with my guys... and in fairness, if ben grimm can punch it out of the way, wonder woman's strength is MORE than adequate...
and the space time generator... i don't get what you're hoping to achieve... what is it actually going to do? it malfunctioned, thats all...
Now, this line here:
c'mon, now... that's just like me saying 'oh, i have a device in my suit that wins me the match/makes me completely immune to damage/kills you instantly'
Now, adamantium armour... transmutation at light speed. cheap? sure, but effective.
The electronic converter? Yeah, if my guys used energy that much, then sure, that'd work, though, they'd also need to be on constantly, are you saying they would be? And Amazo tends to use physical force more than anything else, and, as i said earlier, you'd still have to hit someone moving as fast as Bart Allen, if not faster... and they'd be using any one of near half a dozen powers to take your robots down, and thats just off the top of my head:
Wonder Woman's strength.
Geo-Force's gravity manipulation (a few g's, and your guys crush themselves under their own weight)
Firestorm's almost limitless transmutation abilities
Mister Sinister/Manchester Black's combined telekinesis (well, unless that 'device' of yours is as effective as you say
Kimiyo Hoshi's light control/absorbtion/redirection, which would allow us to take any energy blast you use, and blast it right back at you... Cheap as hell, but yeah, it works...
And the best part of all this? Amazo can use any combination of these powers at the same time:
That's Amazo using more than one power at once (including Firestorm's transmutation):
That means Bart AND Diana's speed, Sinister AND Black's Telekinesis, etc etc...
Ok, now you say:
not saying you can't, but i'd still like to know how... you continue with this:
All very impressive (though are you sure half of that isn't skrull stuff?
), and then you add:
Well, Firestorm has:
Unleashed blasts as hot as the sun.
Dissolved molecular bonds.
Altered the atomic structure of both organic and inorganic compounds quite easily.
Harnessed the power within a particle accelerator.
Easily absorb hundreds of kilotons of nuclear energy.
Redirected Darkseid's OMEGA FORCE right back at him.
Transform matter into anti-matter.
Activated and de-activated the metahuman gene.
Seen pretty much every spectrum (meaning any invisible attack, while being seen by doctor light too, would be seen even easier with firestorm too).
Manipulate and absorb subatomic wormholes.
Transmutate thousands of nanites into water simultaneously.
Transmute tesseracts into marshmallow matter.
Reduce himself to subatomic size, and enter the subatomic world.
Travel faster than light.
Easily convert solar radiation into raw power.
Now, you're probably asking (judges too) what this has to do with durability and all that... Well. This list, if for nothing else, shows just how versatile Jason is. Smurph, you also claimed that my amazos lacked creativity and expansion, yeah, well, red tornado doesn't. His body and programming was used as a template. He is in fact a learning computer. That transfers over to the amazos.
Blackbolt's voice is, by definition, a hypersonic attack, right? So you're honestly saying Jason has never encountered anyone using sonic or sound based attacks, and wouldnt know what to do if he was faced with one? and how fast is that explosion going to move? shockwave's can only be so fast...
There's also the point that my amazo's (and bart and firestorm) can all travel ftl, and would see any explosion coming before it reached us, the thing would be moving in slow motion. All they (amazos + jason/sinister) have to do then, is either turn intangible (with the rest of the team of course), or use the combined abilities of SEVEN firestorm's to redirect the energy. They are very, very capable of it...
Your invisibility won't work either, due to the fact that Doctor Light can see anything you try to conjure...
Ok, so match starts, and...
You launch all of your missiles and bombs, etc. Bombs we can see coming, and missiles that were chasing the Silver Surfer in what, the 70s? Johhny Storm caught up to one, and he isn't insanely fast, neither is the fantasticar...
We can evade, go intangible, or transmute whatever you throw at us. We have a hive mind processing thoughts faster than light. Jason calculates any one of several ideas, problem solved.
to be continued...
