Psycho man has the ability to create illusions but he would not be able to latch onto James Saunders before Saunders made short work of him. Speed demon is just too fast for psycho man to affect.

This battle would not take very long for a character that moves faster then the speed of sound.

Morph - Exiles (HELLSTORMER) bio

http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...5/th_morph.jpg


Emplate is a mutant vampire. He sucks the powers of a mutant with the aid of vampiric mouths in the palms of his hands turning them into his slaves. While in this plane of existence he can remain unsynched with our reality so as to be invisible. He can also see a mutant's "aura" and tell various things about him or her by that.

Emplate is unsynched with this reality meaning Morph cannot even touch him. However, as soon as emplate gets a hold of morph which he can do capturing Morph unaware. He can duplicate his powers meaning he can shape himself into anything against a Morph that will have been weakenned. Of course, Morph could still use his power but he would be weakenned and battling a creature that can teleport and unsynch himself from reality making it impossible for Morph to do anything to harm him. However, Emplate who would gain an understanding of Morphs' strengths and weaknesses through his vampiric touch and would be able to use that information as well Morph's own powers effectively defeating him. In addition, there is a possibility that Emplate can transform Morph into a vampiric creature like himself who would be subject to Emplate's whims.

LOCATION REMINDER:

This week's battles take place on the Blue Area of the Moon.

An artificial, self-sustaining Earthlike environment on the far side of The Moon, the Blue Area was created roughly 100,000 years ago as part of a competition between two alien races, the Kree and the Cotati. The Skrulls moderated this contest, whose goal was to determine the worthiness of both races by discovering which could create a more suitable habitation. The Skrulls changed later on, becoming warmongers. The Cotati won the contest by creating a long-term sustainable ecosystem, but the Kree angrily rebelled and overthrew the Skrulls, stole their starship, and initiated the millennia-long conflict now known as the Kree-Skrull War.
Its Role in Storylines
The Blue Area has played a pivotal role in many events of the Marvel Universe. It was the site of the first battle between the Fantastic Four and the Red Ghost. It is also the home of Uatu the Watcher. For many years, it was the location of Attilan, home city of the Inhumans. But it is perhaps best known as the site of the epic ending to the Dark Phoenix Saga, where, to prevent herself from endangering any more lives, Jean Grey committed suicide.

Speed Demon Vs. Psycho Man:

As stated in his biography, "Psycho-Man has great intelligence and mathematical genius, as well as extensive knowledge of technology far in advance of present-day Earth's." This gives Psycho Man an instant advantage over Speed Demon. As The Blue Side of the Moon has been home to a variety of races, including The Inhumans, Uatu, and the Kree, much of their technology would be left over for Psycho Man to use at his disposal. Speed Demon, on the other hand, just runs fast.

In fact, let's look at Speed Demon's bio:

"Speed Demon can move at superhuman speed. He can run at 160 mph and his reflexes are four times greater than a normal human being."

First, SD isn't fighting a normal human being. SD is fighting someone who has a variety of "armor and weapons. He has sometimes stated that he derives power from the emotions he causes, like a psychic vampire. He recently gained some of the powers of his Control Box, as well as the ability to generate solid energy forms to give substance to his illusions." These manipulations on people are so intense, they can "trigger three emotional states: Fear, Doubt, and Hate...The intensity can range from mild to extreme causing hallucinations and even death."

Psycho Man will not fool around, and has been able to detect superhumans in the past. He would prepare his armor to detect Speed Demon, and with his weapon (and, even the powers he has since possessed), fill the area with fear and doubt, easily making Speed Demon succumb to his deepest fears, of which a constant loser like he will have plenty.

This is not a match that will require hours of battle...it would be finished in meer minutes. Psycho Man has gone against the best, usually never to be captured. Speed Demon would simply be a warm-up for his future battles.

Winner: Psycho Man

Rebuttal:

My opponent gives Speed Demon way too much credit than he deserves. He claims that SD "moves faster then the speed of sound." In fact, as I pointed out above from the bio located at here, Speed Demon can only travel up to 160 mph. Plus, he says he will be using "knives" to cut up Psycho Man's armor. I would guess since Psycho Man hasn't really sustained a large amount of damage to his armor in his battles with the Fantastic Four, that "knives" will not do the trick. Finally, Psycho Man CAN detect where Speed Demon is coming from, and doesn't need to have his weapons "latch onto James Saunders." This isn't a ray gun, it emits it's powers over a general area. It's more like a wave of fear, doubt and panic....enough to make Speed Demon die of fear, if he makes it powerful enough.

Winner: Psycho Man

Meltdown boom booms on Sphinx

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...Meltdown01.jpg

Let me first get this out of the way, yes, Sphinx has a clear advantage in this match. And yes, he probably would win on any other day. But not today.

Meltdown has the ability to create plasma spheres that detonate on her command, these are very powerful. She also thanks to Pete Wisom is able to create "plasma spikes" that are as well very powerful. Sphinx in possession of the Ka Stone is able to channel mystical energies and emit them as powerful concussive, light and heat blasts. He also has Superhuman strenght and the ability to fly.

Meeting on the Blue Area of the Moon, the two meet up and quickly go into battle, Meltdown quickly throws out her plasma bombs and they explode in Sphinx's face. Hes very pwerful so hes only slightly stunned, she quickly moves again for another salvo and knocks him back a bit more. Sphinx retaliates with a heat blast that Meltdown dodges running up to him creates her plasma spikes and stabs him, to no avail as Sphinx is very resistant to physical harm. Sphinx flies being able to live without oxygen and begins to attack Meltdown from above with heat, light and concussive force blast. Meltdown is on the run dodging and weaving and she gets hit. Sphinx is able to swoop down and in time deliver a final blow, using all of the Ka Stone's pwer and meltdown dodges the final blast. With his energy depleted Meltdown renews her attacks not knowing his energies have been depleted. plasma bombs and spikes efficiently and quickly, Meltdown is able to bring him down and tire him out. Meltdown doesnt kill him but Sphinx is defeated.

Sphinx's reality alter powers and immortality would allow him to roll right over meltdown. Not to mention eons of experience and knowledged. Plus he's used to working in non-earth environments. It is possible that Meltdown could be come dissoriented or simply startled by the strange Blue Area. Sphinx is also ruthless, doing anything to get what he wants. he might simply toss Meltdown into the airless part of the moon.

vs.

Bullseye (HIPPY FASCIST) bio

http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...h_bullseye.jpg[/quote]

Bullseye is good, no denying that. However, no matter how good he is, he is still only human. Gauntlet was good before, and then improved himself with cybernetic technology. He made his own body into the weapon. While Bullseye may bring a small cache of throwing weapons after moments he would quickly deplete his sources, all Guantlet has to do is wait him out...

Rebuttal: The Ka Stone only grants Sphinx immortality if its complete. Therefore its safe to assume that in this contest he would not have a complete Ka Stone because that would cause him to be too uber.

Bullseye...if ever there was a character that the only use the information available to you prior to battle it is Bullseye! Every time the guy goes up against his opponents he uses his contacts in the underworld to make sure that he KNOWS them, and when I sa knows I mean he knows about that time you crapped your pants in gym class cause you ate a bowl of clam choweder that smelt kinda funny. The guy goes to sociopathic levels in profiling his opponents. He will not only find out about your powers but also any painful memories you have, which he will exploit for maximum psycholgical damage. Bullseye, while primarily a marksman is also extremely well atuned to ****ing(sorry judges...) with people's heads.

Secondly Bullseye is basically a gun with a pulse, only this gun hits every time and can use ANYTHING as amo. He can aim perfectly not only in a straight line but also using a strange knowledge of geometry( :huh: ) to take advantage of nearby terrain/objects to bounce a projectile back on itself.
This allows him to use guerilla tactics to claim the upperhand, heavy weapons are useless in a guerilla war. People can be hinding ANYWHERE and since bullseye never even needs to get involved in close combat he could be bouncing around anywhere and from a hell of a distance, still managing to hit every time. This level of accuracy is perfect for taking on a partial cyborg due to the fact that he's the one guy that you know can hit the organic parts frst time every time (incidentally due to the extreme nature of bullseye's usual background checks I assume he will be able to find out what gauntlet has had replaced over the years and work round it)

Finally we have the unlimited ammo factor, even claw will run out eventually but to bullseye a toothpick is a deadly weapon, a tiny pebble is a deadly weapon, you name it he can use it. If bullseye he takes it long distance he can keep going all day long and never run dry... like a camel

Gauntlet is an opponent not to be underestimated, but he'd get his ass handed to him by Bullseye!

WINNER: BULLSEYE!

  1. As opposed to bullseye who was...born a weapon :huh:
  2. Have you ever actually read a comic with Bullseye in it? Shards of glass,toothpicks,pebbles,tic-tacs, a freakin tomato...Every one of these is a potential weapon, as is anything else he can lift and throw
On a final note bullseye has tangled with daredevil so we can at least say he is extremely athletic, very limber and used to coping with difficult terrain (roof-top to roof-top, cramped alleys, various churches etc, etc...)

WINNER: BULLSEYE

The moon's terrain isn't pebbely, it's dusty. While Bullseye may be able to use small rocks for a while, he will run out eventually. They are fighting in the Blue Area of the moon, I'm assuming outside of Attilan.

Guantlet is a hunter. He's also going to be making extreme research on his opponent, knowing the keep away, making the proper adjustments to his weaponry. both are high level mercenaries, but at the end of the day, no matter how good Bullseye is, He's still only human.

Re-direct: It wasn't specified that he had an incomplete Ka-Stone, and since he had a complete one for most of his career (Thousands of years) we can safely assume he possess one at the time he was tapped for this fight.

Re: Contest of Marvels II Thread 3
 


For Clarification: The Sphinx version we are using is the New Warrior's Sphinx. Thus, this is why that character was put under the heading of New Warriors in the character listings. Here is the bio portion under Wikipedia.

"Later, Anath-Na Mut was resurrected by the Ka Stone, and instantly took his vengeance on the New Warriors by scattering them all through time. Meryet Karim had also re-appeared by this time, but she had realized her mistake in altering reality and no longer wanted revenge on the Warriors. When her attempt to make the Sphinx see reason failed, she gathered a small team of the Warrior's part-time members including Alex Power, Bandit, Dagger, Darkhawk, to find and bring the Warriors back to the present day, which they did. After a pitched battle between them and the Sphinx, the mysterious entity known as Sayge (aka Veritas) came to the Warriors' aid and forced the Sphinx to face the truth about his existence. Humbled, the Sphinx admitted defeat and Meryet once again offered her love and devotion to him, which he accepted and the two merged into a composite entity and traveled back to the beginning of their shared history, but this time with the chance to live their lives correctly."

I'll see if I can find a better bio. The first version of The Sphinx battle Galactus, and is clearly not the version intended.

This sounds as if he has a complete Ka stone.

I'm not sure how powerful he is in that version. I know if I was facing him, I'd end up re-reading that old story. But, I just know that we couldn't have the version who is immortal and can take on Galactus. I do believe he has a funtioning Ka Stone, but it's not at it's full power. It's like slowly crumbling or something. I'll PM JewishHobbit and see if he remembers much about this. Currently, I haven't found much information on Sphinx. I'll also go back to when we were making up the character list and see what link was given to this character originally.

Zoken 10-13-2006 06:52 PM

Re: Contest of Marvels II Thread 3
 
He only took on Galactus when he was merged with the Living Computer owned by the Nova Corps. That was what made him powerful enough to take on Galactus. A fully functioning Ka stone does make him very powerful, but hey, you have God's in this tournament.

Well, but that's people like Thor and such. The real Gods of the Marvel Universe have been taken out. The Odin's and Thanos'. Either way, you character is up there with the best of them. Sphinx is going to be able to go toe-to-toe with the Cosmic entities like he did last season. Someone with a character like Meltdown is going to have to debate their heart out to try and beat him.

But, either way, this is New Warriors Sphinx; as, that is where he was listed. It's hard to find clear-cut information; so, it's best for all parties, especially those who have to fight Sphinx, to do their research. Like I said, if I was fighting him or had him as a character, I would investigate as much as possible.

If I can find out more, I'll let you know. (But, I won't give out too much. For, if I knew a way to beat Sphinx, I wouldn't make mention out of it. As I've said, these are your battles, and I won't give out unfair information.)

Well, there are people pit against friggen gods that you can tell are just boned, but they have to duke it out anyway. Let him have his Ka-Stone. You wouldn't take Mjiolnir away from Thor would you?

Darthphere 10-13-2006 07:36 PM

Re: Contest of Marvels II Thread 3
 
But hes still very powerful and has a distinct advantage with an incomplete Ka Stone, you could easily put up a extremely convincing argument that he'd easily defeat Meltdown or a lot of other players with an incomplete Ka Stone. A complete Ka Stone grants him immortality and IMO makes him too powerful to be able to put up a fight against him.

Right now, all I can say is that it's whatever version is from New Warriors. That much is for sure, as that's the category he was under...it's just I don't know what the extent of that means. JH has been PMed, and if he knows more, he'll make a post. Other than that, all I can say is your opponent and you should research that New Warriors appearance. If I have time this weekend, I will look into it also.
