I was greatly tempted to just let the above be my OP. Because I couldnít have stated it better myself. Plus Shaman Nate has some form of precognition, so it has to happen right. lol
Straight to the point hereís the plan, Shaman Nate is getting absorbed after all he is pure energy. And the Silver Surfer (SS) is pretty good at absorbing massive amounts of energy plus mjolnir isnít half bad at it either. Furthermore, Iím sure Id is going to use Nateís psionic armor which unfortunately for him is nothing but energy. Meaning he will just make it easier for me to absorb him.
The very first thing SS does is create a mjolnir enhanced power cosmic force field around X-manís hammer.
Thor had to physically break that field around the hammer. The hammer did not return to him even though he was calling it back to him and reaching for it, until he broke the field.
SS force field was amped by Loki during the above scans, here SS force field will be amped by mjolnir. I only need the field to last for a few seconds. Because immediately after the cosmic field, SS and mjolnir will drain Nate dry ending this battle. This whole battle will probably be over in mere seconds.
Mimic and Weapon Omega completely drained Shaman Nate of all of his power. Then a powerless X-Man was knocked out by one kick from Norman Osborn, and tortured so he could later power the omega machine. Here SS and mjolnir will replicate the feat even easier as either one are better energy manipulators than those 2 losers combine.
Below Shaman Nate transforms his body into living energy and merges with the alien Harvester. He then spreads both of them into the cells of every living thing on Earth. Nate didnít return or reform for a few months, so he was incapacitated for quite a well.
SS can absorb all kinds of exotic energy in battle including souls, psycho-kinetic, gamma, and even the power cosmic of other heralds. And not only does he absorb the energy, but very often he uses that same energy against his opponents.
Also mjolnir can take energy from someone like Kang and return it 10-fold. Even a telepathic bolt from the Phoenix gets absorbed and returned. Furthermore, Thanos energy attack gets returned a 100-fold.
Remember Judges Iím using both SS and mjolnir to absorb Shaman Nate who is psionic energy. His body is only a shell, therefore he gets completely absorbed and thereís no coming back from that for this BZ. You all have already seen how fast this process is and how powerless Shaman Nate was after.
Now to sure up my defense. Shaman Nate is a psionic entity, so Iím sure ID is planning more mental shenanigans besides the psi-armor. But, SS has very impressive mental defenses.
In Infinity Crusade # 3, SS resists a psychic attack from Moondragon with the MIND gem, while breaking free from control by the goddess.
Finally, with cosmic awareness SS can do everything and more that Shaman Nate can do with ďplanck time.Ē Plus the five second rule greatly reduces the benefits of planck time anyway, making it basically a non-factor.
Well, this was a fun battle. Id did everything I thought he would, and my counters were waiting for him. Plus he was wrong about every significant thing that he thought I would do lol. Letís start at the beginning of his predictable and mistaken plan.
A nice sly attempt at prep but absolutely wrong. As everyone should know by now, no one does anything in this tourney before the match begins. So the match starts Nate raises a shield around himself, and simultaneously SS raises a cosmic shield around his mjolnir. Nate puts on psionic armor, while SS and his mjolnir simultaneously drains him of said armor and everything else. Remember it only took Weapon Omega and Mimic one panel too quickly drain Shaman Nate completely of his energy. And SS + mjolnir are much faster and better at absorbing energy than those two mooks.
Good for me that I am clearly not attacking you physically, and IIRC that was a Thanosi with the retcon (just look at the unusual size of him). Not that important though either way, b/c the armor with the rest of Nate is getting absorbed.
The problem from Nate here is that SS has and can do the exact same thing plus more lol. SS can see into the past, present, and future simultaneously, and peel back the layers of time.
So that is no advantage for Nate at all, furthermore at this point he is already being drained dry. Also, my mjolnir never leaves my hand, so there is no opportunity to even try too stop it dead in its tracks. By the way mjolnir can start/stop time and create a time warp around an area as well.
Below SS completely stops red-skinned alien Urg from moving. The first scan shows that Urg is strong enough to break thru Quasarís shield in two punches. The second scan shows that Urg is not only super strong and durable, but also able to absorb and re-channel energy. Which makes this feat better than Nate stopping Abomination, plus Urg was bloodlusted having just witness his best friendís death as he states in the last scan.
HA HA LOL, Id forgot about the very first rule. So his entire plan fails hard here, but also for other reasons that I will mention next.
Thatís right the main part of his plan is invalid because it is against the rules. So while that is definitely worth mentioning, even if it was valid it would still be unsuccessful. Because simply Metal Master II and X-Man are not the same characters obviously and do not share the same feats. Metal Master II has control over all metals even enchanted uru, which has nothing to do with Nateís tk. SS has much more of a claim to effecting uru metal than Nate, b/c he has actually done so on panel but I digress. The key point is that Metal Master II ability has no relevance in this match for either participant.
1) This match never gets physical. Nate gets completely absorbed after a few seconds in this match.
2) Id was wrong yet again because my plan is the most simple and the most effective. It only has two parts a shield around Idís hammer and then absorption. Id lost this match in the very beginning and did precisely what I wanted him to do. All the positive things that Id thought about his plan actually apply to mine.
3) LOL so wrong. While I certainly could multi-task, I am not here. Because it is not needed for such a clear and concise two-step plan. The beauty of my plan is that SS is being used for what he does best, absorbing energy. See below SS forcefully strips takes all the power from Sympira. And my weapon is also the best at doing the same and being used in a normal standard way. Shaman Nate is very powerful, but he has one major flaw being pure psionic energy that I have used to my advantage for victory.
X-Man + Mjolnir Combo benifts from a generous 10x - 100x amp.
Begin the match with Shields and Psi Armor.
TK Freeze vicinity to the point it locks space/time.
Take over his Mjolnir and force it to hit mine to unleash an attack on my opponent.
Said every other participant. In every other tournament match. Brownie points for the Villain Monologue
Shields and Armor
Whether I am or not allowed to enter the battlefield with shields & armor is of little concern to me. But it is the first line of action, and in practice Nate has demonstrated he can create them instantly.
Seize of Nate Mjolnir and Energy Drain
Supermutant is claiming opeaning action was to seize Nate Mjolnir and follow up with draining him.
Amazing. Every word of what you just said was wrong.
Surfer can not seize Mjolnir willy - nilly. Look at YOUR OWN scans, Surfer needed to blast Thor. Thor drops the hammer, and then Surfer creates a force field around Mjolnir. Its NOT HAPPENING. Per your scans you are required to land a clean hit on Nate, and Nate to drop Mjolnir to do so, and it this point my Shield and Armor are up. (please log in to view the image)
In order for you to drain Nate, I would need to be simply standing there and allowing it to happen. Nate is not standing, and my own Mjolnir would counter your attempts to drain my psionic energy.
Your actions are countered the moment X-Man TK sized your vicinity.
Remote Control the Hammer and Nate's TK
Its up to the host and judges to draw a verdict. But let me tell you why it IS LEGAL. I am not overwriting or breaking Sufer enchantment being worthy. I am simply manipulating gravitrons to take control of Mjolnir the same way Metal Master II did thanks to Nate being able to manipulate the Earths Gravity as well. (please log in to view the image)
heh. I know people participating in matches against me are going to HATE me for this. But I found it hi∑lar∑i∑ous when Metal Master II took control Janes Mjolnir. And the reasoning behind how it was done per the author of issue even more so. Regardless of how funny I find the situation of someone high-jacking Mjolnir thanks to manipulating its inertia and gravitons and overpowering Jane control of it.... It happened and its legit, and I find no reason why Shaman X-Man could not do the same.
The following are breif scan of what happend and Mark Waid explanation. https://imgur.com/a/1hTRf
And here we see Nate Grey showing he is able to psionically isolate the gravitational pull on the freaking planet on the freaking Elder Beasts! Overkill of a feat? Hell yeah. But at least we know Nate has the chops to do it. (please log in to view the image)
To size Nate Mjolnir you need to land a clean hit on Nate for Nate to drop Mjolnir. You cant, not without Nate shields and armor being there to block your intentions.
You can not Drain Nate. Attempts to pull off an an energy drain can be fended off with Nate's Mjolnir.
Your actions are frozen by Nates own TK and Surfers Mjolnir has been seized thanks to Nate psionically manipulating its gravitrons. Your demise will be met with the colliding both Mjolnirs unleashing its devastating attack.
It is very clear that you cannot put on shields and armor until after the match start. Which should concern you because it gives me ample time to place a cosmic field around your mjolnir and energy drain you. Meaning I win the opening action, therefore I win this match.
Id statements are in quotes:
Unfortunately for you there were two times during the same battle that SS put a cosmic field around Thor's mjolnir. I have already shown one and here is the other.
(please log in to view the image)
So while X-man is trying to regain mjolnir by physically breaking thru said cosmic field, he is already being drained dry. Again while Shaman is putting on armor and shields, SS is putting a field around Shamanís mjolnir at the same time. Then immediately draining him dry as seen below, the draining process took only 1 panel.
lol You have showed no evidence of resisting an energy drain especially of SS + mjolnir caliber, or of putting on armor and shields while on the move. You are in fact just standing there putting own useless shields and psionic armor going by your own opening course of action. And why would you be moving anyway? You have no idea what I am doing until it is too late. Look again at how quickly and completely Weapon Omega and Mimic drained Shaman Nate. By the time you complete your opening action, you have been drained of all your energy.
(please log in to view the image)
I have already shown SS draining energy from his opponents in mid combat. And mjolnir can drain energy while on the move as effortlessly as the SS.
This is rich b/c Nateís tk is not more powerful than the power cosmic of SS. I have already shown SS locking down the space and time of an entire living planetís consciousness. You have not shown any evidence of TK affecting the SS. The SS routinely and casually flies through black holes and white holes. Even below the SS use the power cosmic to fold the fabric of space and time, and break through a time loop to free three billion vessels and six billion souls.
Id is attempting to make a distinction that since he is ďstealingĒ the hammer in a different way it is allowable under the rules. But the rules makes no such distinction. For example robbing someone of their cash at gunpoint, and stealing their bank account info online to buy merchandise are both examples of theft. While definitely different actions, one is greatly more violent than the other, the same result is that an innocent victim has money stolen from them. When Metal Master II exercised control over Janeís hammer, she could not use it in anyway until Metal Master was koed by Supergiant. Metal Master repeatedly used the hammer against Jane and her allies. Jane reached for it to no avail. Jane even states, ďWith the new Metal Master down, Mjolnir is mine once again.Ē This is a perfect example of stealing anotherís mjolnir against the rules.
Now hereís the ironic thing about Idís explanation to control said hammer, SS is better at gravity manipulation than Nate. If Idís plan is not illegal than SS would just take control of his mjolnir back by doing the same gravity manipulation and take control of Nateís hammer.
SS exceeds that feat by placing two planets into harmonious orbit by removing the gravitational disturbance caused by adding a planet to that solar system.
Finally if everything goes the way that Id wishes, he would attack me with the ďbig bangĒ energies. That SS would in turn use against Shaman Nate for the victory. So thanks Id. As seen below a dying SS channeled the energy of the ďcrunchĒ (a creation event) to defeat two Galactus level beings, proemial gods.
In summary I have shown on panel proof of every detail in my simple but effective two-part plan. Idís plan was countered from the very beginning and all throughout. Plus even at the end, he unwisely would give me the energies of creation necessarily to erase him from existence lol.
--Cosmic force field enhanced by my mjolnir around Idís hammer
--Rapid and complete energy drain
