    Wasn't Guerrero vs. Brock at No Way Out rather than Wrestlemania?

    Anyways my fave is probably Taker vs Hbk 1.

    If it's a tribe of hot warrior women, I foresea plenty of volunteers to show up and help with the population issue.

    And there's a reason the argument applies both ways ... anytime a writer wants to use a hero or villain they probably don't he want them sitting in a jail cell. That's pretty limiting. And it applies...

    It's not really new. Why the hell isn't Hawkeye, Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver sitting in a jail cell? Because they immediately became Avengers instead (which is arguably a much bigger gamble than...

    Then getting what they want and them being right about T'Challa are two separate things.

    They're right about SOME things, even though the way they handled it are pretty much being universally...

    I don't see it that way because in the end I frankly felt the book did a retry good job of decisively pointing out the MA were pretty much full of it. It's a case of the antagonists being critical of...

    Between Mantis, Moon Dragon and Gamora I think you can legitimately argue the best fighters in terms MU are all women.

    I phrased that badly. They're not good guys but they're being set up as such. Fair enough?

    No, I think they're being set up as the good guys... I just don't think they actually are the good guys during the first arc.

    Plenty of good guys in fiction start out as antagonists. If anyone...

    As far as the MA are concerned, I think the other side was shown too. We had Ramonda in the very first issue agreeing with her being sentenced to death for her actions. Shuri gave a counter point to...

    It does is a FEW select instances... Taker or example.

    But yeah... if Brock is a draw, then from the WWE's perspective that's arguably the only thing needed to put him in the position he's in. At...

    There probably are people turning a blind eye to it, and that's certainly wrong. But I'm honestly doubtful it's JUST men turning a blind eye. There probably are women doing it too, though it was a...

    I raised this point earlier... but does chi-amping powers qualify as an aspect of martial arts?

    It does in other mediums, like anime. To me it's sort of a grey area.

    Danny's not my personal #1 either (I'm still going with Mantis). But if Danny can one hit KO a helicarrier, his name at least deserves to be in the conversation.

    No, there's a theme that women are taken advantage of. I'm just agreeing with the earlier post that anyone saying ALL men in Wakanda are doing that is a generalization. The story focus on the bad...

    They're probably waiting until just before the Thor movie comes out to hit us with some big Hela centric story. The recent Thor book seemed like a prequal to that more than anything else.

    IMO Mantis is too low. She's dominated entire Avenger teams and has even fought Thanos hand to hand. In terms of feats she can't be touched by anyone else on the list.
