Talking

Well, first you find out if she's in New York or Washington. Her husband won't be a problem but the Secret Service will have to be taken care of ("Wild, Wild West" brand Sleeping Gas?). She's usually wearing a nice navy-colored pant suit - tailored somewhat wide in the hips - so most Aikido throws and joint locks should work quite well on her.

She'll probably be easy to find during the Democratic Convention in a few weeks, just wait near the photo journalists, if she can get in front of Chuck Shumer (hah!)

Re: Aikido VS supervillans???

hello, Dick Grayson... aka Nightwing aka the first Robin, he's an aikidoka. It says so on www.dccomics.com. Seems to work out just fine for him. Plus I bet that whole acrobat thing really helps him move from center and all.

But what do I know, I'm just a white belt.

Re: Aikido VS supervillans???

I know the perfect hero to use Aikido, Pyslock from the x-men. She already uses her ninjutsu and psychic powers to combat super villain's, why not use Aikido too. With her ability to read people's minds and know how they are going to attack, she could be almost as good an Aikidoka as O-sensei ! Better looking too, he he. Plus Aikido would go along with the x-men's philosophy of not killing better then ninjutsu does.

p.s. if size does not matter, could the Silver surfer throw Galaxtis into a sun or something, that guys sucks.

Don't believe everything you read....I'll bet you can't find Nightwing performing aikido in his entire current comic book run (currently 99 issues).

Actually, size doesn't matter at all so as long as the Surfer gains enough momentum to smack Galactus. All the Surfer would have to do is go to the other side of the solar system, break out his slide rule, and after some choice calculations determine the best direction to take off in. Forget throwing, shomen ate the pig.

You are right. I haven't seen too much aikido in the comics of his I've read (haven't read too many, though). I was hoping for more aikido, but alas, that is the way of things sometimes... I would have hoped that DC would have cared more about him. I understand that he isn't batty, but the "haven" needs a hero too.
Aside, I just got the copy of "A Knight in Bludhaven" g.novel! It's really cool.

Daredevil is superhuman. He has enhanced senses and radar sight.

Batman is a paragon. Given enough time to plan and prepare he can take out anyone. Batman has two victories over Superman that are in continunity, for crying out loud.

Iron Fist is good, but he ain't aikido....and you could argue that his "iron fist" is a superhuman power.

An ant has a better chance of overturning a semi. Galactus eats worlds and gave Silver Surfer his power. The Silver Surfer exists on Galactus' whim.

Bludhaven is currently being protected by Tim Drake (the current Robin) and Cassandra Cain (the current Batgirl).

As for Nightwing, Chuck Dixon's run on Nightwing isn't bad, but it isn't great. Devin Grayson, the current writer, has destroyed Nightwing completely and I'd strongly recommend not reading anything she has written...which means issues #73 ish - current.

Re: Aikido VS supervillans???

Psylock is dead? Now where have I heard that before. Crimson dawn anyone? And we all know that comic book chacators are never brought back from the dead. And I do blame Chris Claremont, for a good many things!

I know the Surfer could not do it, I just thought it would be poetic justice if he was the one who offed Galaxtus. Frankly I do not care who does it, just someone please take him out.

Re: Aikido VS supervillans???

Aikido was used in the hero-satire "Temps" (short stories) to trap the psychic familiar of a brand new sorcerer - it was only when the hero relaxed that he could get a purchase on his otherwise intangible foe.

[geek question]

Hold on, I thought galacticus had already been defeated by the fab four years ago by making him eat a planet populated by people who were essentially just hot air in the brain department...

Anyway, ranma rules, but I'm still puzzled why he thinks it a curse...

Psylocke died in X-treme X-Men #2...and yes, we saw the body.

The current editor in chief, Joe Quesada has said that "dead is dead" in the Marvel Universe now, and indications are he's sticking to it. So, chances are not good that she'll be brought back, which is a shame. Psylocke was a great character that got continually abused.

The only things capable of taking out Galactus are capable of taking the rest of the universe as well. Galactus is going to be around for a long, long time.

Re: Galactus....defeated ain't dead.

Re: Ranma.....He's been raised by an abusive father who has taught him to hate all things feminine and his mother, a certified nut job, will force him to kill himself if he's not "manly" enough. Under those circumstances, it's definitely a curse!

Re: Colossus (from online interview between Newsarama and Joe Quesada )

NRAMA: Okay -- well, talking about the respective lines that have seen major changes or storylines lately, you've had major events in the X-Men, Spider-Man, and Avengers recently -- a resurrection, a revelation, and a massacre. Going with the X-Men first and Colossus…"dead is dead?" Wasn't Colossus your original example four years back as a character who was going to stay dead, because it made sense, story-wise?

JQ: Absolutely, I believe the term was "significant death." I also said that in order to bring a character like that back, who has suffered a significant death, the writer has to come up with the best resurrection story ever. What, do you think Joss is the first person to pitch me the return of Colossus? Come on now, let's be real. However, he pitched me a resurrection story that I couldn't say no to and that's the point of "dead is dead."


Re: Ultimate Nullifier

Basically, it's still around, virtually impossible to get a hold of and using it costs you your life.

Regards,

Paul

Re: Aikido VS supervillans???

I see that someone else was brought to tears. that was sad. Going back to the subject of Rurouni. I guess I never really got very far in the series, because i went out on a limb and bought trust and betrayal, which after seeing, just could not go back to Rurouni Kenshin, the art, but mainly characters and overall feel were so different that I just couldn't accept it as real. which was sad, because I'd already put some much time and effort into the series. I was depressed until I found Naruto.
Now there's a supervillain, could Aikido work against Itachi's ten thousand years of pain... or is that Kakashi Sensei's technique? Ok well... How would Aikido work against Uchiha Itachi and against Kakashi Sense?

Steer clear of him unless your weapon of choice is a bazooka. If a pistol won't work, I don't wanna mess with him. He's pretty darn quick.

At the end of DBZ all of the saiyans are grossly powerful....as in, "I'm tired of fighting you, I'll just destroy your planet and be done with it." Nothing an average person could do would phase them.

Alucard from Hellsing
At the end of the first anime series (a second one is in production), Alucard is actually delighted to tangle with a demon-god. That's not someone to mess with unless you have super powers of your own. Some people suspect that Alucard is the original vampire...just spell his name backwards.

I haven't seen Full Metal Alchemist and I've only seen the first 4-5 episodes of Naruto on cartoon network (not sure how much either series has been edited for North American tv...)
