i havent read any of her comics
Finally getting around to peoples reaction to the film
I dont get the backlash of Carols power level what part of Comic book movie are people forgetting?
What part of Carols power set did you miss reading in the comics?
It the equivalent of saying Spider-Man cant web sling its unrealistic Yes she is super powerful yes she has a ton of powers deal with it
wheres the fun in watching someone that can handily defeat everyone and everything she comes up against? theres no excitement when the "end boss" comes cause there wont be any real danger to the character. its cool to SEE her punch through big ass spaceships, but if someone can do that then a mere person is childsplay
iron mans had his ass kicked
captain americas had his ass kicked
thors had his ass kicked
hulks even had his ass kicked!
all four of them have had to struggle to win fights (hulk less so than most). carol has, to this point, not. well, not after she went full sparkle or whatever. she had to actually fight earlier in the movie. plus its made her cocky in the endgame clip in the avengers thread. i only hope that theyre setting her up for a major humbling by thanos.
all-powerful characters are just boring
They are fun in some context, like One Punch Man, but those good ones have the story built around it, and that is not exactly what the MCU is though.
I mean, Hulk finally had his real humbling at the beginning of Infinity War, so it took a while til he REALLY got his ass kicked.
And it was also fun in GotG2 where Starlord was arguably the strongest "good guy" character in the MCU for a while, but even he struggled against a like-powered entity, and while it was great for the time he had the power, it made sense that he would not keep it.
And then he lost his cool against Thanos, and Chris Pratt got hate mail for it.
Yeah good thing this wasn't set in the 1980s but the mid 90s or that'd be terrible.
Randy said she was playing it during the flashback, which was set in 1989.
Yes, exactly. She was missing circa 1989 or something. A couple years before SF2 existed.
