    But yeah, he hit Panther from distance right to the throat right after he did the ground pound thing and knocked the gauntlet out of his hands. maw started to grab it, panther grabbed it and threw it to Parker.
    It's fine, I trust you. Yeah if Panther saw it coming but couldnt react, Storm might be in big trouble.

    Eh, she was travelling but only using a tiny imperceptible fraction of her travel speed. Otherwise Thanos can throw his sword faster than light lol :P

    She looked more like race car speeds iirc.

    Videos too fuzzy to see if he saw it coming and couldn't dodge or if Thanos simply hit him on the run

    Shame.

    Still, it doesn't change much. In my first post I was pretty sure she could maybe dodge just the one throw. But even then I was (and still am) happy with the idea that it's return flight or boomerang esque redirecting could still get the hit.

    It doesn't change much is my point. ^_^

    Isn't this more of a poor showing for Carol than a good showing for Thanos? Carol entered the Earth's upper atmosphere and within a few seconds was already blowing up Thanos's warship and appeared on the battlefield. But somehow can't cross the field in time to get the gauntlet in the van before Thanos threw his blade? The same Carol who scanned an entire planet within a few seconds to determine Thanos was alone. Also, Storm has managed to evade a hammer-toss from both Thor and Clor at shorter distances and has also reacted in time to counter Cyclop's optic beams with either lightning or wind at closer distances. Considering both get basic knowledge of one another prior to the fight, I think Storm would know that Thanos' blade can boomerang and come back at her.

    Much faster: she had passed him, and he tossed it MUCH faster than Carol was moving.

    She wasn't traveling anywhere near top speed and the thing was plainly visible to the naked eye.

    Heimdall was frozen for several minutes at the bear minimum. He explicitly needed time to break out. Loki is half Frost Giant so of course he wasn't frozen. Thor have any feats of resisting being flash frozen? Thanos? I'll wait.

    Prolly. Just bringing up what happened.

    I didn't say it was be an easy fight, i was just saying it is more interesting than Thanos with two stones (which he curb stomps storm).The sword gives him an avenue to potentially tag flying storm without being OP

    IMO

    So just to be clear.... MCU Thor is a bullet timer?

    Pretty sure 616 Thor has survived the effects of "the casket of ancient winters" just fine.

    616 Thanos has no frozen feats but has overcome being turned to glass and what not. Are we really going to try and compartmentalize each and every form of "damage"?

    Using Carol's speed as a metric for the speed of the thing is like using Cap's strength as an indicator of Thanos' strength when he stopped him briefly in IW. It's a story, characters job, hence the focus on feats

    And Thor dodged it. Like even if it had actually hit him you could say hmm that's impressive (with all the caveats that MCU Thor speed entails) but it didn't even hit him. It's like 616 Surfer dodging a punch from spiderman being used to show Spidermans speed

    Otherwise we are now apparently arriving at the conclusion that the Dude moves faster than Carol's best travel speed

    I mean you can see a jet traveling at super sonic speeds. Doesn't necessarily mean much, this.

    True. I guess my point is more like what Dork is saying.

    She herself wasn't traveling at "super duper!" speeds. So comparing it to her is not a good benchmark.

    Ah, yea, and you'll hear no complaints from me there.

    I would however like to posit that Carol's Mohawk increased her flight speed by a factor of 'cool', thanks to its aerodynamic properties.

    EDIT: Rereading this I want to make sure to EXCLAIM that I'm not saying Storm is anywhere close to a galaxy buster. She's like a "decent-sized house-buster."[/QUOTE]
    I'd say Hulk would count as a "decent sized house buster" as well and we saw what that got him.

    I agree. If somebody cuts off Thanos's arms before the fight and let's him bleed then Storm has a chance.
