um, its not just the case vs thor though...hulk vs sentry was the same. are you saying hulk affects sentry's pride as well?

i think it's just as important as the others. the only problem that all the speed in the world won't help you if you can't (or in some cases won't) apply it properly.

was it a godblast? I would like to see the scan if possible. and it must not be completely omnidirectional or it would hit himself.

depends entirely on who he's fighting.

eventually yes, he would have to, but sometimes he'll take a lot longer than he would with others...

well yeah...but if he's fighting someone who's going to present a challenge (ie Thor), I have no doubt Superman will resort to speed pretty early on in their fight

not really. For one, Thor is more likely to fight fair than say, Doomsday or Brainiac would, meaning Superman would want to fight fair too. If Thor started pulling out some magic and such, THEN (and only then) could i see Superman resorting to his speed.

and even then, he's bound to stand there and take a shot just to see if he can tank it, as he does with most people (and usually succeeds).

I'm not sure why you would consider using superspeed as being unfair

sure, the fight starts off with them throwing punches, but eventually thor will unleash a energy attack or lightning storm...at that instant, superman goes superspeed to avoid it and then continues his speed to blitz thor

thats how I see it.

because Superman is faster. If Thor wants to duke it out, then Superman would most likely decide to duke it out with him. Superman is reactionary, he's not the type to initiate something UNLESS its against a villain/person he's fought before. and by this, im assuming they've never fought before and we're not including JLA/Avengers.

no, he wouldn't. he'd stand there and see how much it hurts when it hit him. This is the guy that has taken the OB and Shazam's lightning. He can handle one blast of magical lightning to see how much it stings. After that? Sure, he'd dodge it.

this isn't a tourney or a "he'll fight how you want him to fight" situation.

Superman's character will always come in to play, as will Thor's and anyone else's...

well, I don't see it as out of character for superman to use speed offensively...god knows aside from flash, I know of no character who uses superspeed as effectively or as often as superman.

he only uses it when he absolutely has to, though, which is the thing. When you can take the beating Superman can and still stand there trying to talk someone down (which has worked in the past), you don't necessarily need to blitz them.

In order to see how important it is, you just have to look at a few threads where one of the character has it and the other one doesn't, and make your conclusion based on the losing side's desperate stance.

He won't have the same success because we don't allow PIS which is the reason why people see Hulk as a nobody on these forums especially when his opponents can fly or are fast etc. Also there is always the BFR which hardly occurs in comic books.


KMC rules favor some characters and handicaps others.

Example for characters that benefit : Lanterns , Surfer , Thor , Flash
example of character being hurt on KMC: Hulk , Superman , Wolverine etc.

They've always cared about that, most just think they want to be "accurate" to the character's histories and they don't. I've been saying that.
