    Ah, OK then. My mistake.

    In which case though, the scene with Thanos still doesn’t make sense.

    In the interest of context, the Penance Stare shows him (and causes him to experience) all of the suffering he's caused during his 'campaign to win Lady Death's hands.



    ... and it goes on to show that.

    I guess the question would be if that was this particular writer's idea of it. Thanos is a sadist, but I've never thought of him as a masochist, which is what that scan seems to be implying if we assume they got the penance stare right.

    Yep, specifically says it made him feel the pain he caused. Though I took his response to mean he quite enjoyed remembering all that he'd done; over enjoying the pain itself. Based on his expression ... not sure he even noticed that.

    Post Crisis Kryptonians are not planet busters. OP states it's post crisis versions. Even if they could destroy planets, Thanos can comfortably walk through that level of damage.

    Thanos has waaaaaaay better than world-busting durability.

    Silver Surfer can pretty handily destroy worlds, and he hit Thanos in the face with his best shot at point-blank range, and Thanos’ reaction was basically “Are you done throwing a tantrum yet?” Thanos shrugs off having his reality messed with. He is as far above Kryptonians as... say... Superman is above maybe Booster Gold level.

    I want to see Thanos and the League of Supergirls re-enact the fembot fight scene from Austin Powers, especially with the music.

    I thought current Superman was a planet buster.

    Current Kryptonians are not post crisis Kryptonians. Post crisis here means after Crisis on Infinite Earth's but before Flashpoint.

    @ mider At the least you came to know the limitations of post crisis kryptonians due to this thread.

    You sure seem to enjoy posting on a forum that you appear to have issues with.

    You have made nearly a dozen remarks about Thanos being treated a certain way by this point in your posting history. As if we were biased or some such.

    Thanos is no different from anyone else we use. We assess his feats and then see what the opposition can do to overcome his showings.

    Also, just to point something out, by and large most people in this thread don't really think there is a point. The OP presumably thought it was a fight or they wouldn't have posted it, but they haven't spoken up past making the thread. We have mostly just been ragging on Arbiter and discussing the Penance Stare.

    Ok I see now the OP made at least one post in the thread, but still.

    You have consistently demonstrated a problem with discussions involving Thanos on this board. Do not post on this thread or on other threads on this board involving Thanos again.
