Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.

I really hate the whole "I won't kill anyone no matter what :^)" kind of character, even when faced with real life shit. It's such a naive fucking thing.

Even this guy?
poster boy definition of a superhero, like say Superman (who they're finally trying to change from being boring/OP, which is hard to do, but that's a different story).
If only I gained a penny every time someone repeated this hilarious misconception.
Cryptonite

wow

It's not like he can do literally anything else and makes all other Superheroes kinda pale in comparison.
*Kryptonite

And no, he can't. Martian Manhunter alone has more powers than Superman has, and he has constantly shown to be beaten by other heroes like Wonder Woman and the Flash. Hell, the Reverse Flash defeated him with a single punch when Wondy took more punishment and ended up beating the Reverse Flash. Superman is also way too hung up in protecting others that he sometimes ignores their need to help thinking that he can take the brunt of the attack, this had led him being humiliated by Darkseid, Brainiac, and Lobo both in his own series and in the JLA.

Recently in Rebirth he couldn't even beat a single octopus monster alone, he needed his son's help. AND then he couldn't beat the Eradicator alone, he had help from his son, from Lois in the Hellbat armor, and Krypto. AND now he barely survived fighting against Zod, Cyborg Supes, and Eradicator. If he was sooo powerful as you say, he would've already cleaned house, but he didn't. He left the fight blinded and beaten.

thats the thing that gets me all the time. people whine that hes overpowered but hes really not when you compare him to his contemporaries. wonder woman has faster combat speed and martial arts ability, martian manhunter has greater battle intelligence and more powers, shazam has pretty much everything superman had plus magic affinity (which superman is just as susceptible to as everyone else). and then we have his rogues gallery. darkseid, lobo, doomsday, zod. these are all characters that outclass him in raw power.

just because the guy has more power than a dude who eats a lot of eggs and fights crime as a bat doesnt make him overpowered.

as for villains, it makes far more sense for villains to be OP anyway

so they basically have to find ways to make him WEAKER just to make him more interesting as a character

fucking amazing

wrong

the most recent canon versions of superman couldn't do that

except it literally does because you cant be overpowered when everyone else is relatively as powerful as you... overpowered within the context of power scaling is a comparative statement

Everyone should be on the same playing field guys. Everyone. No one can be more powerful than the next. Also individual stuff like combat speed and techniques mean nothing now. Everything is DBZ power levels.

that was the only entertaining scene of that JUSTice league movie, the scene where superman comes back to life, gets pissed, and starts curbstomping everyone, including wonder woman

because that's what superman does

the purpose of his character is to be uninteresting

i mean you can argue that hes a boring character, but to say its because hes overpowered is just asinine considering a) he's not even Goku/Thor level and people have no problem with those character's powers, and b) his powers are rarely the focus of his best stories. theyre about the consequences of his existence and what he represents to the world.

neither wonder woman nor superman are being canonically represented in the dceu. nice try. same with flash.

>everyone else
>two characters

ok

characters that are equal to or greater than superman (high diff):

lobo
darkseid
the atom
bizarro
martian manhunter
shazam
doomsday
captain atom
dr fate
wonder woman
the flash (who can solo any non-omnipotent character)
firestorm
the spectre
most of the new gods

off the top of my head

firestorm
the spectre
most of the new gods
(if your character can be described as a "god" among superheroes, that should automatically disqualify)

off the top of my head
red = FUCK no

yellow = villain, doesn't count

blue = non-character whose only purpose is to be powerful

green = an actually good example yay

you're gonna need at least 200 more, and that's low-balling it considering how many superheroes there are

also keep in mind that superman is not the BASELINE of overpowered; you can be slightly weaker or even MUCH weaker than superman and still be "overpowered"

if at any time superman actually DOES lose a fair fight, it's just poor writing and a vain attempt at curbing expectations

he's not supposed to lose a fair fight, he's superman

that's basically showing me a picture of superman getting knocked out by donald duck's dick, it doesn't mean anything

Okay, cool

Now apply it to mainstream where the convoluted and usually poorly written comics (and I mean comics as a whole) actually apply

or let Marvel get their hands on it so they can actually do something decent with the character. But we all know they wouldn't let Marvel touch their face.

The problem with heroes in general is that they have to be nerfed to where they can’t literally destroy the Earth or kill too many people

It’s pretty laughable seeing god like beings fight and only a few buildings get destroyed

the one true God is Doctor Doom and we should all be worshiping him.
Marvel's been obsessed with making their own Superman for decades, and it never really worked out. So they just recolored him and started using him directly.

Also since he was mentioned let's take a moment to remember what a dumb, shitty villain Doomsday is.

I guess in Justice League Superman is shit (Batman arguably too) because again, he does everything better than literally anyone else lol

On his own I suppose he's good

Except Injustice. They nailed Superman with that.

Anyway, about pet peeves I think are unnecessary boss fights to game that clearly progress in a more narrative way. Most of the time these bosses end up being just a tad bit stronger than your standard mook, so not really much of a challenge.

I mean he's not wrong. Comics are historically known for being kinda shit. Granted there are some great ones like The Killing Joke and such, but yeah.
