Not if he thinks a Cap level being can split a DareBats level beings head in with a punch, no. Batdevil has far too many instances of let's just say surviving to make it easy... punches on and above that level to just assume DeathCap is a head splitter.
I don't think he did any research at all. I think he just went "Uh super human beats human human"
Look man, I respect the heck out of Topher Priest, which is why with a heavy heart I think that the entirety of the load that Carver8 blew into Carvella1 was more intelligent than what Chris is saying. And that's including the near miss TrisomyCarver21
Lets just focus on Deathstroke. Because physically I believe Deathtroke>Cap. Deathstroke, from his inception, had his strength increased tenfold. And he was already a legendary soldier in incredible shape with unmatched fighting prowess before the enhancement. That's a few notches above Cap.
Someone with that type of strength definitely COULD split a humans head open. Why is that far fetched?
That's not what your boy Chrissy P said though.
Yes humans. Dareman is far from being portrayed as a human though. These are people that regularly go against Spider-Man level beings. Way above 10 human range, and still not enough to head split. I'm not saying who wins or not, I'm saying that taking the word of someone who think contrary to evidence that AmericaStroke can split Devilman's head open with a punch is tenuous ground to say the least.
Look man, when my dad left us, Christopher Priest came in and took care of my mom and her kids. I love the guy like a father, he's always been there for me. Which is why I say with no happiness, that his word isn't worth all the toes on Carver9toes' feet.
Giving Kratos Deathstroke level strength is a huge handicap here, no matter what argument is launched in an attempt to deny it. That being said, Deathstroke would likely win because of the handicap in place. At full power Kratos would rip his face off.
I personally wonder a lot about the handicaps characters are given in this forum. Sure, it makes certain fights between characters that would ordinarily be on different levels possible, but is it a real fight at all? If one crippled one character resulting in that character being defeated, did the other character really win?
For example - if I have a fight between WonderWoman and Batman, and I take away her strength, speed, flight, weapons ...is that really WonderWoman fighting?
Or, if I have Gladiator versus Captain America, and I take away his strength, speed, flight, heat vision, force breath, etc ...is that Gladiator any more? Even if he loses, was it a real loss? At least in WWís case one might say sheís a top tier fighter even without her powers, but in many of these handicap matches itís a joke.
Next youíll be seeing Hulkless Banner versus the Joker, or Steve Rogers pre Super Soldier Serum versus Catwoman.
