Character Mentality: Tournament Style. Meaning CIS/PIS is off. You are in control of the character.
Tournament Rules: Forum Rules. Not tournament Rules.
Anyone that’s familiar with Tournament Style rules know that they can be very restricting. With the forum rules, it opens options, and at this point everyone should be familiar with them
Drafts: High Herald and Lower (Comic Book Characters Only).
Arena: Dragon Ball Super Torment of Power Arena. The Arena itself is about 4,000 square miles (about the size of Earth). The Arena is made of minerals and stone and sturdy/durable/tough as materials composed of Capetian Americas Shield and Nemesis Creation Blades. The Arena is surrounded by an invisible dome that’s completely indestructible. The invisible dome is 6,000 miles above the ground . Falling off the Arena itself is not a loss. Leaving the Arena and Dome is considered self BFR and A loss. Those forced out, and not able to return in under 2 seconds are considered out.
Equipment: Standard equipment. Characters that can store and recall equipment in pocket dimension are allowed to recall them, and are treated as standard equipment. Example Kang the Conqueror.
Prep-Time: None. Mostly. Except for Shields/Auto Shields.
Shields and Auto-Shields: Those with powers to erect a shield can come into battle with protection on This is only for physical shields. This is the only exception to prep-time. Do not test me, and ask about masking your sight or shielding your presence etc.. fuk off I am not having this time.
Post Limit: One Post. Posts are to be submitted to me. I will announce when to submit your posts to me, and I will submit them once the topic is created. This is in effort to avoid counter posting.
What is or isn’t allowed: Check Forum Rules. Teleporting out of Arenas bounds is considered BFR and a loss. Phasing ala Martian Manhunter is allowed.
If a Team Wins: Although it is a battle royale For those who join forces, if you happen to win. You are declared the winners....at least for now, I may do a part two.
Teams or not all participants will appear in randomized location spread throughout the glorious 4,000 sq mi. Forum Rules, you start on the ground.
For my immortal or resurrecting characters
For those who can resurrect first kill is a loss.
For those who can not be killed. If they can be K.O.ed, incapacitated, bfred its a loss.
bluewaterrider - Wonder Woman
Biggest threats are probably Zoom, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Thor, and Energy Superman in about that order. Realistically have to allow some players to eliminate each other. I am assuming I have my lasso in hand even as Green Lantern has ring in hand. Strategy: Immediately ascend while stamping the ground silently praying for the Godwave and asking Hermes if he would allow his name as the God of Speed to be mocked by Western heathen (Flash and Zoom).
While flying as fast as possible around the dome, I would wrap my fist and forearm with the lasso as a boxer pre-wraps with tape before putting on gloves.
Note this leaves fingers exposed and free to grasp, but palms, fists, and arms protected. This also protects me to some extent from mental assaults and illusion. I have prepared Proteus' gift of illusion and my Morpheus touch. I am seeking to lasso Martian Manhunter above all else. I will partner with any JLA teammate against the rest of the field, so if someone says to me "Wait, let's do this together!", I will accept, though first probably lasso them to see if they're sincere. Now ...
If Hermes has granted me speed great enough to counter Flash and Zoom directly, I knock out Zoom. I'll let Flash handle as much of the rest of the field as possible before taking him out, unless he teams with me, via simple lasso command or sleep touch, which is the method I'll use by default for every opponent regardless, unless I can get J'onn to sleep everyone.
Ditto for Godwave granted.
If Martian Manhunter partners with me, I'll have him mind-whammy everybody. If that doesn't work on Flash, have J'onn disappear and, while invisible, ambush Flash the way the White Martians did earlier. If MM won't cooperate tries the Injustice phasing, etc, pray to Hermes to allow air friction physics to resume around me and create the heat neccessary to weaken and subdue MM or force his surrender. Lasso him as partner
If cratered by an occupied heavy hitter, feign unconsciousness or death while using Proteus' illusion to hide my open eyes and unscarred features. Surprise them with Morpheus touch if they follow up. Please note that my bracelets block magic lightning (see Wonder Woman #600), and that Thor's presence with overpowered Mjolnir along with the speedsters make Wondy's gods granting Godwave near-automatic.
Thor's whirlwinds are a mixture of nature and magic, and they guard against more than one offensive ability. Energy strong enough to pop 1/5th of the universe isn't getting past it, so neither is anyone else. And while he's inside the shield:
It only takes a few more spins, and my storm is now capable of being felt across dimensions. Anyone not rooted to the ground is now being pushed off the planet sized arena. I won't give you all a chance to be pushed off or torn apart by the storm tho, every enemy on the field is now hundreds of millions of light years away.
All that needs to happen is for my winds to be touching you, and you'll then be encased and sent off away from the arena, for an immediate ring out. Or it might as well be since none of you are making it back within 2 seconds.
But wait, how will Thor be able to find all these contestants on such a vast arena if they don't want to be found? Because no one hides from my storm. (please log in to view the image)
Thor is one with the storm, every drop of rain, every gust of wind, it's all part of me. And this Thor of course doesn't have a noob Donald Blake inside of him not allowing him to unleash his potential or being overwhelmed of his senses. I can now effectively track each and every competitor on the field so long as they're in the rang of my storm, which by the way: https://i.imgur.com/g79lbxG.jpg
Is planet sized. None of you are safe.
So the second anyone is expose to my storm they're being targeted and teleported off the ring, and to make absolutely certain that no one is breaching my shielding, I can add an extra layer of protection to it: https://i.imgur.com/IfW0CbY.jpg
Indestructible matrix energy. Not that I'd be easily targeted to begin with, because well, the storm is strong enough to be tearing apart Earth from Asgard. The other contestants would be lucky to survive, because it's not just wind and rain, which on its own is enough to incapacitate the Hulk: https://i.imgur.com/H42tFGr.jpg
Thor of course doesn't need that much energy to wreck the field, but it shows a good example of the sheer intensity of the energy that will wash over the field. The fading residual energy from Thor's body is enough to knock out Marvel's top character with a healing factor (Minus Logan). Thor of course won't overexert himself here, but let's not forget that that same blast wouldn't have the same effect on Thor, who is wearing the belt of strength here plus his armor.
Except this time, it opens up to a red sun. Now why the red sun you may ask? Because it's about to become my weapon. Mjolnir can sap it dry of energy, then I will scour the field with an omni blast that contains the power of the red sun X100
There may have been two in that example, but even half of that feat...is infinity. Every god that ever was and ever will be throughout time, was dying. And Thor absorbed the blast, which was filled with god kryptonite no less. And he did it within moments. So here, within moments, the field will be scoured with red sun energy, ripping anyone who gets caught in it to pieces. There are speedsters here, but they can't run away from a blast that won't leave an inch of the field unscathed, except for where I am of course.
As an added caution, my enemies shouldn't try to come near me (not that they could, but if they got within range somehow) Not only can I detect all your movements, but I can make sure that even if you came close, it'd be worse for you: https://i.imgur.com/gGX4vtB.jpg
By raising Mjolnir I can strip my opponents of their recent memories, meaning, they won't know where they are. Which will be more than enough time to end any of them, whether by automatic BFR: https://i.imgur.com/ElFjLbb.jpg
So in the rare case that someone has managed to get past my storm, herald breaking lightning, automatic BFR, and red sun X100 blast, I have plans for any and all who want to prolong the inevitable. But let's be honest...no one would be left by this point. Either having them killed or eliminated by ring out, Thor would be the last God standing.
But there are a few contestants who I think could try and wiggle their way out, and I want to make sure to mention that they're no more capable of defeating me even if they survive the initial onslaughts.
Martian Man Hugger
A powerful psychic with some neat phasing and a decent amount of strength to boot. If only Thor had some defense against someone who could phase... https://i.imgur.com/LHLEQIV.jpg
Enjoy Mjolnir in your brain.
It's true that sometimes like anyone else Thor can be vulnerable to having his mind tampered with, but not on the first try. The mind of a god isn't easily navigated, and no one here would be able to do it in their first try. Certainly not any green martians who are can't handle lightning:
Surfer is tricky...he's got a lot of abilities, and he's proven he can steal my hammer if need be. Thankfully, this isn't a comic: https://i.imgur.com/5gNyyDO.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IEJOico.jpg
I can teleport Mjolnir to my hand. It can't be held, it can't be stopped, it will return to my hand always.
For all his vaunted versatility, Surfer has little no showings against others in his tier that would suggest he can pull of any of the particular gruesome techniques that he could do in theory. It's important to remember when judging, he gets a lot of lip service. What isn't lip service however is this: (please log in to view the image)
A speeding surfer, shot enhanced cosmic bolts at Thor, and Thor by simply raising his hammer, was able to draw them in. They don't even have to be directed at him, they'll simply be absorbed. There's only so much Surfer can do however before he falls prey to the raging chaos around him.
Superman and Energy Superman
I lump them together because they'll both be going down in similar ways. Energy Superman is fast, powerful, versatile, deadly. And utterly useless.
(please log in to view the image)
If you're energy, you're under my domain. And Mjolnir has no limit that is reachable by either of these characters, so Energy Superman is now dispersed.
You see, Mjolnir doesn't have to stop draining its opponents, it's just a very harsh attack Thor chooses not to use. Thank gods I'm in charge here eh? Superman of course wouldn't be here as he'd have been scoured by my initial onslaught, but I put him here for good measure. Green Lantern
His versatility is unmatched. That much is true, but his constructs...are energy. And that nice glowing ring of his, may as well as be mine. I can siphon it as easily as I ripped the energy out of the god bomb. Or as easy a manhunter: https://i.imgur.com/iaorxqf.jpg
In the case that he feels resisting is still an option, I will utterly remove him from this plane of existence: https://i.imgur.com/Z50rgO4.jpg
No pain, just a spinning hammer and elimination.
I wish I could mention all of you, but I'm out of space. Please note my friends, the specific posts at the end are just for respect of the heroes that have any chance at all of surviving the initial onslaught. They're not my go to, but they're certainly viable, and they assure victory. Thanks for reading through all that judges, hope you got a kick out of it!

J'onn is hurt by fire and The Surfer has the skills to BURN HIM!
There are COWARDS who will team up against Surfer
JLA- Flash, Hal, J'onn, Supes, WW, Zatanna- Hal’s shields and constructs are NOTHING as Surfer can pierce, absorb, and remove them all. J’onn's psi link is moot because Surfer can track their thoughts and protect his own. Iron and fire end the Martian. Zatanna is taken down from the start. Clark’s red solar and K-nite weakness is used. Diana is destroyed from within.
X-Men- Elixir, Mimic, Nate Grey. Elixir can augment the power of Mimic and Nate thus creating 2 Shaman level characters. NO MATTER! The psychic based energies will only BOOST Surfer. http://i.imgur.com/5Drxinh.jpg
God alliance- Loki is targeted in the first salvo against mages so he can’t guide Thor into a better use of his abilities.
WHAT IF they can breach the shields, locate him, and then affect him?

DEATH DEALER CONQUERS ALL
Thanks again for hosting this, ID. Here be my post:
So, it comes to this. The swan-song of KMC. The ultimate test of wit, cunning, and comic-book knowledge. Here, in this moment, the fate of the forum will be decided. Who will reign supreme?
Most will try and end this quickly, spewing out a strategy of staggering complexity, which they believe will net the win. It is only human nature. It is also a foolish misconception, revealing total ignorance of what this tournament is.
A goddamn cluster-****.
So many heralds unleashing their power, in ways more intricate than writers can conceive. Can any one truly fathom the repercussions? Can any plan endure beneath such terrifying conditions? The answer, simply, is no. This battle will not be quick. It will not be enjoyable. It could last for days, weeks or even months. This would take a toll on the mind of any hero, let alone the feeble posters who have taken control of their limbs. The constant fighting will leave any who partake drained and vulnerable, including myself. This, however, is the exact reason why I shall not be taking part. For you see… (please log in to view the image)
You read that right. I’m not charging in, beating my chest like some compensating fool. Oh no. I shall come as a friend, the lone source of comfort in a world of endless pain. Allow me to explain.
At the beginning of the battle, I phase and turn invisible, sinking into the arena’s core.
This leaves me protected from ANY assault, particularly as I’m swift enough to match the speed of most on the field. If need be, I can navigate the entire arena (which is only the size of earth) in under a second.
*Note, Green Lantern also expresses serious doubt about being able to even TRACK J’onn, so any attempts to find me are going to be met with failure.
Now, this should have waylaid any doubts about my ability to survive the opening salvo. Still, as an added extra, my next step (While still phased inside the ring) will be to portion off a piece of myself, storing my soul within it, so that if, on the off chance, one section of me is destroyed, I will still be safe and sound.
Alright, is everyone convinced? Am I safe from all potential threats? Ah, yes, of course. The fight you all came here to see. The fight that ALWAYS had to be. J’onn Vs Nate. Me vs Smurf. The telepathic showdown. What a battle that will be...if it happens.
You see, I’m not exactly going to seek him out. My initial plan remains concealment, waiting for someone else to potentially take him down. I mean sure, he could try to track me, but J’onn is VERY good at hiding his mind. Better than Superman, in fact.
So it is HIGHLY doubtful that he will find me. If he does? Well, that’s a fight he’s going to lose. For one, I am a better telepath, with countless victories over galaxy-class foes, and more experience than he can ever dream of. I am unquestionably the most powerful telepath on the planet.
Now, you will notice that I emphasized the multi-tasking. There is a simple reason why.
Nate has nothing to compare. Any feat he has that remotely matches these, took all of his concentration, a luxury he will not have. Smurf will be battling against countless different assaults, trying his best to survive, while I sit pretty within the safety of the ring. Even if he does manage to somehow find the time, I believe it is clear that he will lose that contest, quite decisively.
*Note, Some of you may believe that the above scans were feats of Fernus, not J’onn. This is incorrect. It was decisively stated that Fernus only took control AFTER J’onn attempted to free Luthor, which all these events precede. They were all J’onn, baby.
What does this mean, you ask? It means that I have time. As the other combatants expend themselves, I can simply wait, until they have weakened themselves enough for me to make my move. Now, what those moves may be are entirely dependent on the foe. Some I may come to as a friend, taking the form a friendly face.
After all, while they may have the hero’s body, these are still the same, pathetic posters we’ve all come to know and despise. Who of them would turn down some comfort, after countless days of endless fighting? I can take any form they like, any fetish they desire, and I’d be happy to do it, just to get my shot. Need to seduce Abhi? I’ll just take the form of a naked Kal-el. Need to seduce Bentley? One Kang with a vagina, coming right up. I can be anything they want, and by simply reading their minds (Assuming I can’t just shut them down) I can know exactly what that is.
Of course, I don’t need to prostitute myself. All I need to do is stick a hand through their chest/head, and the day is pretty much won.
Few can survive their heart/brain being phased from the body. Even fewer can defend against it from a super-fast, invisible, intangible telepath, who can probably break their mind from half a world away. And judges, please remember, that IS what they are facing. An unseeable, untouchable foe, who can know their every thought, and kill with a simple touch. J’onns pacifist nature is not in play, nor is his weakness to flame. That weakness is purely psychological in nature, and as I lack J’onn’s fear, the fire holds no power. Essentially, this is Manhunter unleashed, free of the CIS that always holds him back. None of the competition has a way to address my unique combo of abilities, while I have the means to bring all of them to their knees. It really IS that simple.
Judges, make the correct choice. The martian choice. There can only be one, and that one is J’onn ****ing J’onzz, the Manhunter from Mars. (please log in to view the image)
carver9 - Zoom (Hunter Solomon)- Team Carver & Reality Warper
carver9 - Zoom (Hunter Solomon)- Team Carver & Reality Warper
Alright, so I'm sure everyone knows what my plans are but they are entirely unsure on who my partner is... My plan is to take out everyone as fast as possible while at the same time using my partner as back up. I AM the fastest person on the field and the battlefield is only 4000 miles long. I have all of the time in the world. Let me explain why...
I'm so fast that Zoom is a blur to the Jay. Jay thought that he was hit by an invisible enemy. Didn't even see what hit him. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...-zoom_blur2.jpg
Let me guess. Since this is Jay, you're not impressed by it??? Here we have blood lusted Wally attacking Zoom and Zoom is blocking all of his attacks with one hand. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...1-file0011a.jpg
Wait, let me guess, that still isn't impressive. How about this. Flash stole speed/power from Jay and Bart. Let me guess, you all think that is still too slow? Even with the added speed, Zoom still appeared as a blur to Flash. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...m_vs_flash2.jpg
I can also post him living (yes, living) within the ticks of a second. I'm not going to do it because I know you all believe it.
I have to be relentless during this match, I have to kill (yes, kill), everyone before they even realized what is going on and I am capable of doing it. People here is probably thinking that they are safe due to this fight being on an arena 4000 plus miles wide. Probably thinking they can react before I got to them. As I said before, I have all of the time in the world. While fighing, combating flash, I was capable of covering EVERY INCH of the planet a THOUSAND TIMES in less than a second. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...200+page+21.jpg
I can find everyone, kill them, play a game of solo chess, eat me a happy meal afterwards and still have enough time to spare before they realized they were dead. My main problem here is Flash but I am too fast for him as well. Yes, too fast for him. I was able to visit Linda, who was a thousand miles away and return back to an amped Flash before he realized what happened. He didn't even see me move. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...1-file0022a.jpg
So the combatants start off with standard weapons. My goal here is to take advantage of one person weapon and that is Diana.
I quickly run over to Diana. I take her sword and her rope (remember, everything is at a standstill while I am doing this). Guess who my first victim is going to be? Of course, Flash. Remember, I was able to move faster than an amped Flash could perceive. This version of Flash isn't amped. I run over to him and lop his head clean off (I know, brutal). I then proceed to run over to Blue Superman and slice through his shields, punch at his shields with all of my strength until I am in. I then proceed at laying haymakers, thousands of them until he is dropped.
I run over to silver surfer and I slice and punch away at his shields with everything I have until I break through. Surfer shields isn't enduring a thousand punches more powerful than Superman punches or a blade that can cut through Atoms. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...icture__49_.jpg
Her sword with just a flick of her wrist damage Superman. https://qph.ec.quoracdn.net/main-qi...ccbb5b6bef7f7dc
Once I'm through. I punch Surfer with a thousand Superman PLUS level punches koing him and tossing him off the edge with a hard punch to follow. Thanos has killed Surfer is 6 punches... how many all out blows do you think it would take me to drop him?
I then go on a killing spree with the sword. I cut off Sin head. I then cut off Martian Manhunter head and then grab him, push him to the edge, punch him off as hard as I can so I can make sure he touches the bottom. Why did I do this? Because if he grows his head back, he still have to fly back up. I cant see that happening in 2 seconds.
I slice Digi head clean off. We have all witness my blade cutting Superman. I stab him right in the brain with it and push him off the cliff. Stab Odinson in the brain. If he have a shield up, I do to the shield the same thing I did to Surfer Shield and then I cut him to pieces starting with his head. Thor has been stabbed through on many occasions. Here is an emample. https://static.comicvine.com/upload...15654-1rPm9.jpg
I turn Thor into Chopped steak.
Diana gets her neck chopped off as well with her own blade but just to seal the deal, I grab her tiara as an additional weapon.
Nate gets his shields punched through. His shields can NOT handle my punches. How do I know? 4 punches from Hulk broke clean through his shielding. I will hit his shield with hundreds of Superman plus blows. http://photobucket.com/gallery/http...al1998.jpg.html
Once I'm in, head slice. Run to Godzilla and circle his entire body with the blade. Run up and down his body with the blade. Make sure I have covered every square inch of his body until he is chunks. I turn invincible into Sushi, starting with what, his skull.
Hyperion gets stabbed in the head. If a blade can cut Supes, it can cut him as well. How do I know. Corvus blade sliced https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c3/f...cece83eb513.jpg
So we have Doom (major problem, thanks a lot ID for giving people prep), Hal, Kang, Darth Sid, Quasar, and Kang. Remember me having a partner. Here is where my partner come into play. Remember me having that lasso, it is needed here. I push all of these peeps once they are found on this flat surface to Elixar. I then wrap Darth Sid, Hal and Quasar in Diana lasso and leave them in front of Elixar. I then put Kang and Doom in front of each other hoping they are not team mates and let them fight it out while I go and help Elixar with her three opponents. I keep all 3 of these people busy solo while Elixar get through their shielding taking them out. I pound away, keep them preoccupied long enough for her to wrap it up against these opponents. I guess I need proof that I can fight multiples of peeps at high speeds. Here we have me fighting the Justice League, hitting them before they could react. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads...icture__60_.jpg
And I was holding back during the scan above. Here is my partner ability which is the reason I put him in front of shield peeps.
Quasar shields can be broken through. http://pm1.narvii.com/6311/660fff95...a4141a82_hq.jpg
I have the strength to crash them and the punching power to do it as well. Hal Jordan Shields will get ripped through as well because I do have the punching power to do it as shown here when Diana rips through the shields with ease. https://comicnewbies.files.wordpres...n-lantern-1.jpg
If I can punch through these people shieldings, Dark Sid shields are nothing and he gets pummeled to death and stabbed, shanked. I then run over while staying blind to the neck eye (faster than Flash can see) and I check on the fight between Doom and Kang. Whomever wins between those two will be problematic. I stay invisible and I run over and tell Elixar to pretend like he is dead or once he is blasted, pretend like he is out of if he gets killed, (sorry Elixar) I'll still win the fight for us. I disappear from the battlefield while remaining at Superspeed. https://arousinggrammardotcom.files...flashzoom31.jpg
Here we see Zoom living in the tick of a second. I will wait it out until the last person that is standing thinks he won the battle. Once he lets his guard down, shields down. I kill him instantly, even if its Doom and Kang.
This was a fast written out paragraph. Sorry everyone. Had to get this out of the way. At least I killed Dark.
RealityWarper - Elixir - Team Carver & Reality Warper
RealityWarper - Elixir - Team Carver & Reality Warper
My general strategy is to stay around with Carver scouting while I am hiding like a ninja.
Carver lure the opponents in my vicinity and I destroy them when they are around.
Elixir is an omega-level mutant with Biokinesis. He would have no problem killing everyone here because his powers ignores the durability. He simply destroy totally their biology and disintegrate them.

leonidas - Zatana - Team Leo, Digi, Smurph Post 1/2
leonidas - Zatana - Team Leo, Digi, Smurph Post ½ OPENING POST
Free-for-all’s are awesome!
But everything‘s better with friends.
So without further ado I present The Team That Will **** You Up!: Zatanna, Shaman Nate Gray and Mimic.
(1) the instant things start Mimic and I will be transported to Nate Gray.
(2) Once there, mimic will copy Nate and take off.
(3) Once he’s gone, nate and mimic shield the area—together—then I say “ezeerf emit” to stop time within the shielded area.
(4) mimic proceeds to patrol the outside gathering powers as he will.
(5) When time is stopped and we are shielded, I say “edih su morf lla noitceted” so our little group can’t be detected by anyone on the field.
(6) Shielded, hidden, and safely nestled within a magical sphere of frozen time guarded by our invisible, power copying pit bull, nate downloads my memories and learns backward magic.
(7) To aid him, I say, “wonk drawkcab cigam”. With that, we have, in seconds, doubled our magical output.
(8) Nate then links our minds and uses his tp to reach out to touch every mind on the BF. I again assist by saying “dda ot sih rewop—tel enoyreve raeh su”. And with THAT, we have effectively doubled our TP output.
(9) Once we know everyone can hear us, we join our tp and magic powers and together say “peels”.
(10) Everyone on the BF goes to sleep. Easy-peasey.
(1) Nate is going to take care of speed on his side of things but I want to show everyone that Zee herself is anything but slow. A couple times she has cast spells AFTER bullets have been fired at her:
So, while Nate has speed aplenty to teleport me to his side, there is proof to suggest I could port to him without even needing to talk, but regardless, it would take less (literally) than a second to say “ot etan yarg” and I’d be gone in the event anyone has doubts about my ability to reach Nate.
You can still see the boy frozen in time behind them. Casting multiple spells is not an issue for her, in case anyone was wondering if she could cast inside the time spell, or wondered if NATE might be affected by my spell….
(4) See Mimic
(5) Here she hides an entire ARMY and creates an illusory one to take its place:
I’m sort of combining the concealment spell with the protection spells to conceal us from ALL senses—physical AND magical. Not much of a stretch I don’t think. Anyone on the field capable of seeing through my spell would need to show some proof of this ability and even if they could, it would take time to find us. And we don’t plan on giving anyone time….
(6) See Nate
(7) Though there is no specific feat that matches this spell, with my spell to help him, and Nate DL’ing my memories, there is no reason to think Nate couldn’t learn backwards magic. Compared to some of her feats, this is a pretty minor thing. Once he has the ability, and my memories of how to use it, his addition would increase our magic power overall, significantly.
(8) Here is an example of Zee increasing the output of one of her spells just by saying it:
There are other examples, but I don’t think I need to waste more words on it. The idea of joining with Nate though is something I want to explore. Here, linking with Jonn, Perry and Superman, she uses their memories to REBUILD ALL OF METROPOLIS!! Lol
An astounding feat. Joining her power with others to effectively increase power is nothing new to her., but here is a scan to suggest that her own range is plenty all by itself to get the job done in this battle:
She has all the people sleeping IN THE WORLD dream of the demon she is fighting, causing his essence to be ripped apart because it can’t be in so many places at once. Global range with her magic?
If we DO somehow detect anyone still awake after our spell, I can transmute them or, summon a demon army to kill them, or Nate or Mimic takes them out. There are limitless possibilities as you will see below.
And that should about cover it. Ample support to show that what we’re trying to do is not overly complicated or anything even really out of the ordinary for Zee.
Since I’ve got space, I’ll show a little more about how powerful she really is. Recall, any of these feats can be applied to anyone you feel MAY have been able to resist our sleep spell. First, some shields, should I need them. Not only exceptionally strong vs magic and physical attacks, her shields can also RETURN the attack used against it:
Note the frozen PHANTOM STRANGER lurking in the background. Sheesh, don’t pi$$ her off. Here we see SOME of what Zee might do if she wanted to when a villain gets her power and screws with SUPERMAN and POWER GIRL:
He’s also been repeatedly and explicitly depicted as the outright superior of other formidable telepaths, such as Xavier, Cable, Jean Grey, Exodus, and Mr. Sinister. Xavier himself has feats to rival/surpass the two other telepaths in this battle, so Nate is operating in a different psionic tier than anybody else in this tournament.
So at the very beginning of the match, Nate will have an extremely formidable shield raised. Since he is the foremost psi manipulator in the match, his opponents will neither be breaking or phasing through, nor draining it.
As of match start, Shield Count = 1 (Nate’s shield)
Nate then immediatelyteleports Zatanna and Mimic to his location.
On speed: because this match is chock full of speedsters, it’s important to emphasize that Nate Grey has the fastest scanning, processing, and thinking speed out of any character in this match. Sound like a quite a claim? See the proof:
It’s clear that while Zoom and Flash, for instance, could search the earth very quickly, Nate could do it instantly. It’s also clear that his mind can view, think, and act between the seconds, much like Zoom.
2) All of Nate’s actions here are mental. He is not lifting a finger. He is using his ludicrously fast and powerful brain to locate his teammates ASAP, and teleporting them to him. Above is the proof that Nate’s mental computation exceeds the herald tier. The second point to underline, though, is that his thoughts themselves move way faster than other ‘thought’ in Marvel.
Our opponents may argue that even if Nate can think and perceive at super speed, psi actions may will have their own lag time. So, behold, Nate Grey’s thoughts actually travel galaxies in between panels:
His mental commands happen as quickly as his brain moves. So, step one takes place in planck time. Zatanna will be bringing her own shield with her when she teleports, so at the end of step one, Shield Count = 2 (Nate’s shield, Zatanna’s shield)
Nate and Zatanna reinforce shields. Zatanna prepares a time stop while Mimic copies Nate's powers, and Nate performs a memory dump so Mimic is equally proficient with all psi powers.
With Mimic, that raises us to Shield Count = 4 (Nate, Zatanna, Mimic, time stop)
Nate uses tp and tk to hide us from the opposition, Zatanna does the same with magic.
See Leo's post for the strategy here.
Nate can shield us from psionics, and, as above, can cloak us with telekinesis. Zatanna can do those things as well with magic.
Nate downloads Zatanna's memories to learn backwards magic.
Zatanna reinforces step 6 with a spell. See Leo's post.
Nate uses his telepathy to reach and make contact with every mind on the battle field. I expect opponents to have tried to shield themselves from a massive mind blast or some such, so we're avoiding the obvious route here. While Nate Grey could likely overpower/absorb/ignore any telepathic shields our opponents use, we have a more elegant solution that simply requires Nate to locate and make contact with each of our opponent's minds. Even if minds are shielded, they will, without a doubt, be able to hear what we have to say.
And just because we can, Zee will cast another spell to boost our psychic search. See Leo's post.
Nate and Zatanna, in contact with each opponent's mind, cast a spell in unison: "Peels"
We'll use our telepathic contact to cast this directly into each opponent's psyche. While they may be shielded inwardly from a telepathic onslaught, and outwardly against magic, the combination of methods, combined with our mastery of magic and psi, will be enough to end the match here.
Just in case anybody's still awake: Mimic quickly power copies the sleeping bodies to enter the Super Herald class. We wreck shop. See Digi's post.

Mimic (Exiles) – for those unfamiliar, Calvin Rankin (Mimic) can copy up to five power sets at 50% power each. Any metahuman is his for the taking. He can do so instantaneously. I'll have him start the fight with the five he used most recently (most of them for a long period of time): Colossus, Northstar, Wolverine, Deadpool and Cyclops.
The Plan in a Nutshell
I've teamed up with Leo (Zatanna) and Smurph (Shaman Nate). I'm going to be complimenting the plan detailed in their writeups. I'm also going to be stacking powers to build a super-herald. Together, the rest of you are in trouble.
I'm in the air immediately. Having copied Northstar,Cal's at 50% lightspeed. More importantly, I have reactions to match, which not everyone can say whose straight-line speed is mine or better. But that doesn't really matter, because at speeds arguably greater than ANY physical speed, Z and Nate are linking with me and teleporting me inside their shielding. I then copy Nate (replacing Cyclops), and Mimic has had telepathic and telekinetic powers before AT LEAST on Nate's level (he has copied the friggin' Phoenix), so he knows how to use them. He's also stacked redundant powers, like Johnny Storm and Mariko, or Logan/Deadpool, so redundant powers aren't an issue.
I'll refer you to Leo and Smurph's posts for the "sleep bomb" plan we're using. My role will simply be to throw up some psionic illusions to mask us from physical detection, and to ward off any other telepaths who might think to get frisky with Nate while he does some telepathic heavy lifting.
Having already copied Nate, and with a TON of people down from our magic bomb, I will really have my pick of powers.
Mimic's wheelhouse is mutants, but he's copied generic metahumans ( Human Torch , Thing , the aforementioned Deadpool, even The Brood merged into him at one point), and all instantaneously. He needs an hour near someone to keep their power permanently, but can "borrow" them for a while instantly, which is all I need. And I already posted the Phoenix scan, so power level isn't an issue. 50% each, yes, but add five of those together intelligently and you easily have a herald-busting or even team-busting mesh.
Through it all, Nate will be facilitating instant memory transfers into me so that I have full knowledge of any new powers. Though really, Calvin's really experienced. Most of these power sets are nothing new.
2. Flash: I'll hang onto Northstar until I can copy Flash (the spell bomb should do the trick, along with their time-stop strategy), and I'll be staying airborne so they can't get to me until then. Then this is game over for the whole field, because I'm going to speed share with Nate and Z. Everyone can just call it a day at that point, at least the ones who are still alive.
3. Superman: Clark's powers are based in his physiology, so it will be easy to copy. I doubt I need to tell you the benefits of the boyscout's powers.
4. J'onn: Ditto with the above, and Cal has previously copied an alternate reality Morph, whose body-morphing powers make J'onn's shapechanging look like preschool. Also gets me phasing (actually, copying Nate earlier get me this too, but for redundancy).
Are any of these powers at 100%? No. But think it through. 50% Flash still puts anyone else in the field as a statue. 50% Superman is > half the people in this field, hilariously enough. Elixir can mess with literally anyone, and has an Omega level healing factor. And I have unfathomably powerful psionic and telekinetic powers, willingly given to me by Nate. And phasing and shape changing. Put them together and no one in the field would be able to touch me. Flash's punches hit with the force of a moon even at lower speeds. Add even Colossus at that point and I'd take peoples' heads off. And things that take picoseconds for Flash will just take me, say, two picoseconds. Superman and and J'onn are overkill. Even if I only get three of those four above – hell, if I only get two of four – I'm still going to be an angry, untouchable god. And this is also before the biology manipulation that will allow me more powers. So hell, in addition to those, I'll keep Wolverine and Deadpool, so that my healing (from all the damage I won't be taking) will be instantaneous.
And any magical shenanigans claiming otherwise will quickly be put down by a speed-enhanced Zatanna, with the full backing of a multiversal-level telepath in Nate any my own juggernaut Mimic mesh. Good luck to the rest of you; I think you might need it.
There's a lot of trust on our team, so I don't expect a backstab. But if it happens...I'm not fighting. I'm going to spend the remaining moments of Mimic's life just staring into their eyes with a look of truly hurt betrayal. I will mentally impart my anguish to them as they snuff my life out, so that they feel the full weight of their duplicitous actions. They will wake up years from now in the middle of the night, haunted by my eyes, and through them, my soul.
DarkSaint85 - Wally West Flash – Team: Darksaint & Philosophia Post ½
Ding,the match starts.
The battlefield is IMMEDIATELY filled with 5000 Flashes.
This is a convoluted strategy,judges,see the following diagram:
(please log in to view the image)
Time Clone Army!!!
I am sending myself,AFTER the match has ended,back in time to the exact moment it starts. Once it’s all over,I then time travel back to the future,to the respective points in time that I came from.
I break no rules,as it is not self-BFR (I never leave the arena - if anything,I am JOINING the arena). Judges,if you think I shouldn’t do it after the match,then imagine me doing it just before the match ends - the results are the same. I'm not attacking them as babies - I go no further back in time than the start of the match.
Can Wally do that?
Here he is,doing EXACTLY that. He was sent back in time,so he creates a loop whereby he goes & interacts with his past/future self,making himself appear dead so that the Suit would send him back in time,where he wakes up & goes to interact with his etc - you get the picture. https://tinyurl.com/y8nqjeqr https://tinyurl.com/yc587rg4
Other examples,in case people need to wrap their minds around it,include Imperiex - I’m sure we’re all familiar with that story. He was trying to correct a flaw in the universe - then realised by travelling back in time,he was that very same flaw: https://tinyurl.com/ycfbbndq
I can count in the femtosecond range. Every second holds 1 quadrillion femtoseconds. Later on,I can do attoseconds. But let’s not go OTT. I can easily send 1000 time clones back every second,for five seconds - & they can pop right back to their original timepoints when finished.
So,match starts,5000 clones of Wally. Each clone is,to all intents & purposes,Wally West - just from VERY slightly different times.
1000 of them,IMMEDIATELY,as the match starts,speed steals. I don’t need line of sight,I just need to be standing on the ground,like Wally does here: https://tinyurl.com/y8rfvbkv
Remember,judges,there are 1000 Wallys doing this. Match starts,EVERYBODY is standing on the ground as per forum rules. He did this INSTANTLY against Amazo,who also had superspeed: https://tinyurl.com/y74wqbp6
Note that Amazo also had GL powers. I’m explicitly NOT doing what happened to Inertia,where he was allowed to continue thinking in real time. Wally did that to torture him. I’m taking ALL speed away - everyone will be completely frozen. No spells,no energy casting,no rings,no telepathy,nothing.
It touches EVERY part of reality. Shields won’t block my connection to it - IF it does,that’s cutting your own character off from the SF,& that just….freezes yourself,lol. I am connected to everyone,& everyone is connected to me. Remember,I don’t even need to touch them to absorb the speed. That’s because everything is connected to Flash.
3 inferior speedsters,lending speed to Flash,were enough to INSTANTLY enable him to deal with Zoom.
I have ANOTHER 1000 Flashes,lending speed to the remaining 3000. I send 10 to deal with Carver. He gets utterly stomped. 10 Wallys,all as fast or faster,beating him up. Zoom could just about handle 1,lol.
Now,there are 3000 of them,amped,whilst my opponents are frozen by 1,000 speed stealers,whilst carrying WW’s golden lasso.
Yeah. I forgot to mention,when the match ends,I pick WW’s golden lasso up.Every clone that travels back,will therefore have one. I don’t even have to touch people like Elixir.
Judges,am sure all my esteemed opponents will have tactics to deal with Wally. Maybe they will argue I can’t spam IMPs,or they have the durability to tank an IMP. Maybe they’ll argue I can’t possibly speed steal that many people,or that large an area. Now they have to deal with 3000 amped Wallys,with the lasso,whilst they’re frozen solid by another 1000.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
If anyone tries to hide from me,my ally,The Blue Phildo,will find them easily. That’s right,I’m allied with Philosophia. Some of the Flashes will be lending him speed,accelerating him & healing him as necessary. So if there’s any doubt that my 3000 amped Wally’s can’t do the trick,he’s there. He’ll look like just another of my clones - but with the right thumb of his costume missing. I’ve shown speed lending,here Wally can lend speed to energy as well: https://tinyurl.com/yaay3lnb
Of course,if needs be,I can send more. 5000 were sent back in 5 seconds. Why not 10? 12?
I can then phase into the ground,& hide. Who is going to look,let alone find me? I will be phased into the ground,whilst my time clones run riot. Any attempts at finding me will just locate my clones (who are EXACTLY like me). If needed,Phildo can additionally shield me (plus my clones,to be decoys). If anyone tries to absorb him (hello Thor!) well...IMP to the face. See his post on his shields.
Judges,this is how Wiki describes a picosecond:
That is how much time I have.I have 200 AMPED Flashes to deal with each opponent,simultaneously.Either they can handle 200 amped heralds (which makes them way above the cap,lol) or they can't. Oh I’m sure Abhi has his fraction of a nanosecond feat,or Digi has his ½ Quicksilver speed,Bentley will freeze time,Smurph will go into Planck time,whatevs...this is the big league now. A nanosecond is 1000 picoseconds.1000000 femtoseconds.
I freeze ALL of them (stopping their plans),then either outright snatch their hearts out/boil their blood/etc,IMP them,BFR them,or use the lasso on them (which is independent of WW,as anyone who holds the lasso without her can attest to - for more scans of its abilities,see bluewater).
Immune to physical/energy attacks
Can reform from any attack/Can heal at will
Can manipulate, absorb, redirect and resist psychic/magic attacks
Darksaint doesn't like sharing a costume. So how do we make up? We team-up!
When I shapeshift, I leave my thumb costume naked so he can recognize me.
Besides Zoom, we're the two fastest beings on the field, by far. So as soon as the fight starts, we search for eachother. He lends me speed just in case and I protect us from whatever type of attacks are tried at the start.
Throughout the fight, I can instantly teleport to his location and help him:
We're both constantly moving at FTL. I'm changing energy frequencies, nobody gets a lock on me, and when I want to attack, I either do so as Flash, or invisible/phased.
I ONLY attack when there's an opening. If two people or more are engaged, I LET THEM, and attack when a winner arises and he doesn't expect it.
All's fair in love and war.
I'm FAR too fast for anybody besides Flash/Zoom to even see me, but if they do...
Tag me? I phase, absorb their attack and send it back.
Blast me? I absorb their energy, getting stronger.
Before they can say "what the f*ck, since when can Flash do that" they'll be gone.
The ones that can be easily drained? I do so when I get an opening, assuming they won't be down. Like Surfer, who is BY FAR the most drained guy in the entire tier, and it'd take the whole post just for that. Since this is directly relevant, Iron Man drains him electromagnetically: http://tinyurl.com/ydbzkqe9 http://tinyurl.com/ybk58zls
Thor? There's COUNTLESS examples of his hammer being affected by magnetism, but we don't have the space so here's just three:
