Odd, as that Punisher scan has been used for years as proof that he did resist. I actually think that was one of our earlyest conversations here, when i said Frank had resisted the PS in GRís 90s book, and you said no, he only resisted it this one time.
Yeah, the more I read the scan the more I convince myself he didn't resist it, as he used the manner I said above - he just doesn't have that weakness. It's like saying Batman resists Kryptonite driving solar energy out of his cells - whilst its true it does not happen, it's not his natural durability that does it, but merely the absence of solar enerfy in the first place
^^^it can also show the lassoed person the truth.
Its how WW managed to stop Ares in her first Post Crisis storyline of her ongoing book. There was no way she could actually beat him, but he stopped on his own when he saw what the lasso showed him.
Lol. Am sure you're just chalking it up to 'that slippery sneaky DS', but the general points are there, and consistent:
Punisher was not affected.
I didn't.... actually, in those threads you've quoted, I only posted the images to show it not working on people. You said I posted it as proof of resistance.....when I never did,at least not in those posts you quoted.
Youíre right. The Stare when first portrayed didnít care if you accepted the evils you committed. As long as evil was commuted, it would take it and multiple it. And letís be honest, Frank has commuted many evils.
Bruce Wayne has arguably the most disciplined mind on his world
When he steps on a stage
He stays in character
Snare him with the lasso at his house or at some random location when he is not portraying a role and ask him who he is
He will tell you he is Bruce Wayne
When he has to pose as a person criminals can trust and can trade with... ask him who he is with the lasso around him and he will truthfully tell you who he is there as.
If You Have The Intelligence to ask Him:
What is your identity when you are out of costume?
Then because he's a Badass he would say 'The Detective' (Considered by Some as The World's Greatest) and keep going through his other titles before he has to give up Bruce Wayne... That's how Batman was resisting the rope
For example If you put the lasso around a person in public office while they are actively performing their role as a public official and ask them who they are with the LOT
The President in Office could (and would) truthfully identify as The President in Office. The President in Office could further truthfully amd correctly identify as The Commander In Chief in times Of War in Countries where they have Prime Ministers The Prime Minister In Office could correctly identify as The Prime Minister In Office, The Acting Commander In Chief, Member Of Parliament for >insert local office here - usually the county / state where they were born and raised, their political base<
Superman could have 'resisted' the rope if he wasn't totally square.
That Lasso Of Truth like any tool or device is only as effective as the hand (or the mind) which wields it.
If Batman or Lex Luthor had that thing...
- In The Zone -
When you're sitting an exam, When every single part of your being is immersed in an activity = when you're in the zome =
if you've just won a one on one match = you've just won The WBC Unified Super Heavyweight Title - That Exact Second - A Reporter (Your Mom) shoves a microphone in your face and Asks You: WHO ARE YOU?
What are you going to say:
That exact moment
I'd bet yall you are gonna say
I AM ...........................................
When you're in the zone - you are on stage - you are performing as a character - with total discipline - total focus - you are that person - you perform like a champion - you perform like a winner and you win - you are a champion - you are a winner
Thats the positive side of Absolute Focus (You deflect every single thing which is not relevant to the immediate task you're doing)
On the negative side = Total focus to malfeasance = Temporary Insanity
Batman isn't crazy, a little bit crazy or insane he's a Karnak Level Mind Athlete an absolute expert on Psychology on Himself on Culture Languages and Acting
Michael Schumacher won so many races in F1 with Batman Level Crazy Preparation + Focus
When his mom died.. he did not break focus. He spent more time going over his car - already gone over hundreds of times before by the car crew - doing the same crazy prep he did before every race and kept the same focus on the track to win (and then he went to mourn his mon)
Schumacher at his peak when he was overtaking lol...
