If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
I would like to dedicate this victory to h1, carver, LoM and others. For it is by interacting with them, that I have developed the patience to debate in BZs.
Here, Cyclops highlights how Cassandra Nova NEEDS Xavier's nervous system to work through:
No Chuck nervous system, no powers. Good thing I've eaten it.
Bonus scan: Cyclops not only resisted Cassandra, but could've ended the entire story there and then:
Cyclops. Resisted. Her. Does this sound like a telepath who's >10x Xavier?
That's three, THREE, times the X-men could've stopped Xavier, but PIS stopped them from hurting Chuck. The more you look at it, the more it becomes clear: Cassandra Nova, whilst powerful, wasn't all that. Beast resisted her. Wolverine straight out threw her out of his mind. Cyclops stopped her from mindraping him.
Oh, but I see LoB is now accepting of the fact I can eat him. Slowly doth the penny drop. Let's move on then.
He now asserts he can still function - that he has control over me. The problem is, he has been digested. That is how Matter Eater Lad's powers work - the energies are gone.
Calorie Queen (of the same species as ME Lad) explains it:
I convert LoB into safe, harmless energies. After all, IF I was unable to do so - then by rights, I should get the Miracle Machine's energies, right?
After all, I digested that energy. But if, as LoB asserts, that energy is still in any way, shape or form consistent with its former self pre-eating, then ME Lad should still be able to use it. Which suddenly makes ME Lad the most dangerous character in this BZ, if I can now use the Miracle Machine
Talking up your control of energy is all and great - beyond the Omega level, blah blah.
I digested the Miracle Machine, and its alien energies (note Brainiac's words). It took me a while, and I was driven mad, but I did it. You are far below that level.
Scans, please, of Nova 'annihilating' Jean and Xavier? Because you really aren't reading that comic correctly.
Here is the end of that comic. Note Jean/Cyclops' reactions:
Why was it so surprising? He outed himself as a mutant. Why would Charles do that?
Answer: it wasn't Charles. It was Nova all along, to weaken them:
Note too, the 'flu' they're talking about. We'll get back to it.
With that in mind, go back and look at LoB's scans of the battle. We have Jean and Xavier going up against Nova, then Xavier TELLING JEAN TO STAY BACK. Then getting blasted out of his chair. Oh, and once more, Cyclops resisting her. But that's by-the-by.
Chuck certainly didn't try very hard. How can LoB be so sure it was Xavier and Jean fighting Nova? Xavier was already compromised. Mindraping Jean is a good feat, though.
Hang on, was it REALLY?
All of the X-men were infected by nano-sentinels, weakening them. Jean was not at 100%.
IOW, that entire 'fight' is a non-feat, as Xavier was already possessed by Nova, and Jean was poisoned.
Even if they knew she was coming - Fantomex has misdirected Psylocke when she was upgraded by Celestial tech (even when she knew Fantomex and his powers):
Horsemen of the Apocalypse, also upgraded by Celestial tech (whilst injured):
Hell, Celestial tech itself:
And Shadow King (whilst he was possessing Wolverine/Archangel/Deadpool):
But that's small fry, right?
How about the Goat Monk? He had to rewrite reality just to see through it. Moreover, Fantomex was badly wounded (his face had been skinned. That's right, his face had its skin ripped off just prior to this):
So what, eh? Who is the Goat Monk?
So, apparently, a character who was unable to mind-rape Cyclops, Wolverine, and was resisted by Beast, would be able to see through illusions that have:
fooled Shadow King, Celestial enhanced Psylocke, Jean Grey/Xavier simultaneously AND Jamie Braddock;
be able to get past the TP helmet that has blocked the same people (on different occasions);
lock onto brains that are switching so quickly, it kept the Shadow King out;
get a mind reading on a brain which has kept Martian Manhunter out; and
do a mind whammy.
All whilst my character, who has kept up with a serious Zoom, is destroying his nervous system (without which he cannot function) by eating him up, and digesting him.
