Battle Location: The Playboy Mansion. Newjak starts on the front porch. Khell starts in the backyard in the infamous "grove." The entire grounds, including inside the mansion, are fair game. Hot comic book babes watch in suspense from the edges of the battlefield. As a stipulation for the match, the winner gets to "celebrate" with a comic book girl of their choice (their amalgam, not khell and newjak). Before the fights closes (next week) both participants must choose which girl they will celebrate with and if possible post a pic.
...this is fun...

Equipment: Collapsible staff, 12 shurikens, 12 mini-javelins
Character Notes: Blink - Blink can teleport herself, but cannot teleport another person (parts or whole). She can, however, teleport objects hurled at her if she has the skill to pick them off in the air before they hit her. Her projectiles can significantly damage a person, with the molecular displacement affect acting as a moderate concussive force. 4-5 such projectiles can impact with the force of a standard grenade (enough to blow up or at least significantly damage, say, a car). Individual projectiles will cause damage to any substance (even the uber-tough stuff) but denser materials (diamond, adamantium, etc.) will be damaged but remain essentially intact unless totally bombarded with projectiles (i.e. highly unlikely). MN'er staff, while not indestructible, has crushed a regular form of steel with relative ease. It will be considered tobe an extremely dense form of metal...close but slightly lower than adamantium.
Okay, well, during the last few seconds of prep I put up a shield around myself, then teleport to the roof of the mansion. Since Midnighter's scanners can act as a sniper scope, I just wait until Mauler moves into view and blast him with a tightly focused blast of Chi. If he manages to dodge, I simply teleport to a different location where I can still see Mauler and blast him again. Since my blasts can shatter solid stone and armor plating, and burn flesh on contact, it will only take one good hit to end this match.
If, by some miracle, you manage to take a shot at me, I have the combined reaction times of Midnighter and Blink, who the evil Hyperion admitted matched him in combat speed. Its a simple matter to open one of those little portals and redirect anything you fire at me back at you.

I was under the impression that Blink needed to hit things with her teleport-y javelins and whatnot for the teleportation to happen. I didn't think she could just open portals at will wherever she wanted. Now, with MN'ers skill, it's certainly within the realm of possibility for you to do just that, but it wouldn't be as easy as blinking (pun intended).
So as long as you touch it? Ok, that seems acceptable, since it will still require skill to touch objects or energy being hurled at you. It's a nice tactic, but as long as it isn't assured that it will always happen, and there's at least some chance for failure.
Thats what you think my friend I have an Elder Pred in my guy that means let me tell You have roughly a thousand years of exprience in combat and hunting along with Deathstroke's combat abilities and stealth. Plus I have the Pred Helmet which allows me to hear whispers at 500 feet away and see you anywhere no way your getting the drop on me that easily plus it isn't like I will be wandering the house without a clue as to where you are I will probably find you about the same time you find me.
Now I am probably at leat twice what Spiderman is since I am roughly twice what Scorpion is as stated by Digi I think I am alot tougher than Spidey right now but Digi makes the rules.
Anyway that means I have double Spidey agility and DS reaction time the same reaction time that allowed him to stab Flash so I could easily dodge any spear you throw at me. Plus I I don't even have to throw a weapon I just look and shoot from my shoulder cannon or staff or hand gun or all three at the same time. Once you teleport I can detect the sound of teleportation so I would know where you come and attack there.
So long range isn't where you want to be because I can dodge and shoot three times the fire power you can muster. I could also sit there and dodge any of your weapons at will pretty much if I wanted to and you have limited numbers so I can keep it ranged your gonna have to go melle eventually. While I can keep it long range so I already have an advantage. Also just to let you know I can dodge as many as I want because no matter what even if you throw them all at once I can blast them out of the sky with my shoulder cannon while dodging and even if you get lucky that I miss one I can't dodge one highly unlikely I can simply roll into with my armor which is Uber Metal type which can take the hit and only cause minor pain to me which is nothing.
Oh by the way for Prep I will make sure that everyone knows my guy has Scorpion's armor underneath the Pred armor. And I have also attached one of my Wristblades to my tail so I can have three indestructable striking weapons at once.
Deathstroke's sword, Wristblade on left wrist and tail wrist blade.
Midnighter can go undetected in the same room as another man with enhanced senses, walking across a metal catwalk while the guy walks out of the room. If I don't want you to hear me, it will not happen.
Tougher and stronger? Sure. Yo are nowhere enar as agile though, and that is what my amalgam is all about. Even if I didn't have a shield up, you can't touch me.
Spear? What spear? you mean my javelins? For one thing, they're only eight inches long, so it's not like I'm carrying a pack of full size spears on my back. Second, I don't have to throw them at you, I can simply Chi blast you from a safe distance.
Hey, please do at shoot me. Just gives me something to throw right back at you.
I've read just about all of Blink's appearances, and never once has someone discovered her by the sound her teleporting makes. She's used it to spy on Apocalypse's forces in the AOA, so its quiet enough to be stealthy. You won't know I'm there until a blast of Chi is tearing into your costume and eating away your flesh.
EDIT: Just checked out your link. It says nothign about the helmet giving you enhanced hearing.

You're thinking in terms of Marvel's alien symbiotes. Grail's symbiote is biomechanical, and has only a very rudimentary consciousness. And, unlike the alien symbiotes inMarvel, the Wetworks symbiotes gives a proportionate increase in strength, no matter what the startign strength was. This is alien technology we're talking about, not alien goop-creatures.
They've been shown to be able to increase their mass, to grow, so that they can accomadate a man one symbiote gave the ability to grow 20-30 feet tall. They can amplify chi or psychic abilities and even give someone abilities like invisibility, teleportation and time travel. The Wetworks symbiotes share nothing in common with the Venom and Carnage symbiote, except the name used to describe them.

Sorry don't know how to multi quote yet so until then just gotta bear with me right now.
Midnighter won't be hiding from me since my infrared vision will see you. Also the fact I can see you here whispers at 500 feet and be perfectly quiet myself doesn't help you finding me first.
How Man times has Scorpion fought Spidey and how Man times has he managed to hit Spidey so I am defiantly very agile right now.
Your javalins are small so that means about as much to me as anything since I can still see them still dodge even easier if their smaller just to let you know.
And I can blast you from afar so three blasts compared to one Chi Blast.
You also said so yourself you must holding the Javlin and focusing to teleport my stuff back at me. Which you won't have time to focus because I will be shooting at your javlins as well. So you will have to be very very quick and very focused to do it. Especially with three blast coming your way. Also in the house I have a very big advantage because Scorpion can climb walls and stick to them so I can dodge from the floor to the ceiling to the wall no problem while avoiding your attacks. And attacking back so you have to dodge focus and chi attack back. Well I can do all that without using my hands since My shoulder cannon works without me having to shoot them. Also I can stand on the wall so I can still keep both hands free.
neither of those guys can multiply the others strength.... and even if they could go back to just before the process that turned Gargan into the Scorpion and go through it again (which you can't) the whole idea was to give a person the proportionate strength of a scorpion.... so it would all work out the same
