    Without telepathy, Sinestro probably cleans up.

    The only risk is Nightcrawler teleporting his head off or Iceman freezing him.

    I can't say if the ring protects him from hostile teleportation, but it should probably protect him from cryokinesis, since the rings are made for the cosmic cold of outer space.

    Trap them in a bubble and transport them 1/2 way to the moon. Release bubble.

    Unless Sinestro has some bullet-timing feats I don't know about, it's safe to say Nightcrawler has the fastest reaction time here.

    At the start of the match, a bloodlusted Crawler teleports himself into Sinestro, killing them both, and winning the match for the X-Men. Unless....

    Unless power rings have auto-defenses against offensive teleportation of this sort.

    Anybody know of any relevant feats on this point?

    Wouldn't that be BFR, which is specified as not being allowed?

    Trapping in a bubble and holding them for a 10-count would be permissible under the rules, if we're getting picky.

    Can Storm do something wacky like starting a lightning storm in Sinestro's head?

    And why not have Kurt teleport Rogue up in Sinestro's face so that she can drain him?

    Is Bobby still Ice-God levels of basically unstoppable if you're not a telepath.

    Autoshields. Seems unlikely that most of that stuff will actually connect.

    Also, Sinestro has some pretty solid transmutation feats, which might be enough for Bobby.

    Could these guys get past his shields

    And he’s not a weakling in strength and feats with the ring...what are his current powers anyway?

    Auto-shields block anything they smcoukd try at the bell.

    Shuelding up blocks everything else.

    After that Sinestro dismantles them at his leisure...

    I don't really care, it's not my thread, I was merely pointing out an error you made to help you out. Sarky.

    I wonder if Rogue could absorb his ring's powers and then be able to battle him with the absorbed ring's energy?

    Unless Rogue can actually get her hands on Sinestro or the ring itself, it's not likely to come up. Otherwise absorbing the ring's energy via attempted moves Sinestro makes with it would be more of a Bishop thing.

    Has she been shown to absorb pure energy?
