    Stephen King character wins the quick-draw.

    Roland could draw his revolver so fast you couldn't see it, for clarification.

    Nothing in the blockbuster-friendly comic movie space Chris Evans is impressive compared to what King's characters can do.

    Cap's physical abilities are equaled or likely surpassed by at least Roland and Randall.

    Nick's telekinesis is superseded by Carrie's and Randall's.

    Human Torch may have more firepower than Charlie (once again, blockbuster friendly), but she has other powers outside of it and could probably ignore his flames anyway.

    Barlow can go intangible as well.

    Funny, I'm reading Salem's Lot right now for the second time. I hadn't read it in years.

    I'm a big King fan and I have over 20 books on audible and e-books.

    Doctor Sleep is a good one as well.

    Haven't read much of the new ones, but I read all the old ones on a rotating cycle every year I'd say. Always finish the cycle with the Dark Tower.

    The new ones aren't as good as his old ones but Dr.Sleep is an exception. The movie was horrid though, didn't capture the flow or magic of the book.

    That's the problem with King, it doesn't translate well into movies and TV. Except for the new IT, which was surprising.

    I...agree.

    Hesitantly. I need to go through it again. It's weird to think how old fashioned it is now.
