Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Posted 31 March 2019 - 12:45 AM

To start, im only posting this here because my parents suggested it, based on the charity work we as a community have done. (if this post is a problem please let me know and im sorry.)
 
3 weeks ago i started having problems with my right foot (this is my bad foot, from all my back injuries, but this was different), so i told my mom to get me the walker because i couldnt use my foot. I took some meds and went to bed and when i woke up saturday i fell into a chair and couldnt move my leg at all.
 
There i stayed for 2 days because no one realized what was actuallly going on, we thought it was just my back being really bad mixed with the flu.
 
Monday i took an ambulance to the hospital and found out i was in Full Kidney Failure, my liver was failing, and i had a mysterious case of Rhabdomyolysis. I also has a mild heart attack and based on how messed up my right arm is, a stroke of some kind.
 
Emergency Dialysis followed, along with tons of tests, and a muscle biopsy of my right leg...So far there are still no answers as to why this happened to me, but the hell thats followed certainly isnt mysterious.
 
I have ZERO use of my right foot, i cannot use it at all. My right leg, from the butt down to the ankle has little to no feeling except pain. And when i say pain, i mean pain like i have never experienced before, especially in my dead foot...its indesceibably intense at times. and my right leg is still swollen as well, which is kinda scary.
 
I am currently in a Rehab facility working on trying to walk and use that leg again...its been a week of that so far and needless to say things look both hopeful and grim.
 
As it stands, my insurance doesnt cover the kind of Hospital Bed i'll need when i eventualy go home, and they dont cover a bunch of other stuff. All we're trying to do is take the burden off my parents a little bit, as we are not people of means (basically dad can afford our rent, bills, and food...wile still haveing a little left over to live on, mom cant work as shes disabled with back problems and a handful of other things, and me, we all know my situation.)
 
I would never come to you guys, hat in hand, like this...but to be honest i'm turning to every possible place i can...and i know the kind of people the Allspark is as a community. So im putting a link to the GOFUNDME page a friend set up for me.
 
I have hope i can survive this...but im scared.

so every little milestone counts i guess.

Figured id give a bit of an update:

 

Both of the physical and occupational therapists are saying im doing much better...theyre letting me "walk" around the room alone and go to the bathroom by myself...i "walked" almost 150ft today.

 

Reason i put Walk in qoutes, is because yes, im up and moving, but i still have no use of my right foot, no feeling in it or the ankle, most of my leg is still swollen and numb...and the pain in the foot/ankle/calf is so insane that none of the other milestones matter to me.

 

i havent slept more than 2.5 hours a night in 4 days...because of the pain.

 

im working hard, im trying, im doing everything i can do...but without the feeling or use of the foot, and with the pain at the level its at...i dont know how much i have in me....and that scares me.

I'm guessing you're already on strong painkillers. Some improvement is good though. Hang in there, we're rooting for you.

i been on painkillers for almost 20yrs...and what im on now is barely scratching the surface of what i actually need. what i was on in the hospital was working (15mg oxycodone every 4hrs), but my pain management doctor freaked out at that and put me on 2 10mg percocet a day and 2 time release morphine a day...i might as well be taking ibuprofren.

 

i just want to be comfortable...but its starting to look like that'll never happen again.

If you've been taking painkillers for that long, that may be the cause of the kidney failure. The rhabdomyolysis on the other hand may be due to the back injury you sustained. While most injuries don't cause rhabdomyolysis at such a level, decreased kidney function would mean that the myoglobin couldn't be disposed of and it accumulated in the blood. This in turn would have caused some liver damage. Can't be 100% sure without a full history and record though. 

 

From what you described, it seems that you were in a state of uremia. While it's hell during the condition itself and the immediate recovery period, once your body chemistry starts to stabilize, the symptoms should become more tolerable. Take things slowly, because decreased renal function doesn't cause any symptoms until the body chemistry is completely and totally hugged up. While it's hard to say up to what extent without knowing the state of your kidneys and other comorbid conditions, with proper medication and lifestyle, most patients regain quite a bit of function. 

 

The most important thing right now is to find out the etiology of the kidney injury.

Posted 08 April 2019 - 07:35 PM

from what the doctors have said, even though they have no real idea why it happened (though i think my friend and i figured it out...ill get tothat in a second)...they think its more likely all the OTC stuff i took, like ibuprofren, aleve, asprin, and tylenol. (yes i took that stuff along with the painkillers and muscle relaxers, my pain has been that bad for the past year, even post surgery)...but again, they have no idea.

 

my kidneys and kidney functions are both close to 100% with no permanent damage...same with my liver...thankfully.

 

Ok, so a few months ago they said i had a "fatty liver" and my triglycerides were a little elevated...so they put me on Fenofibrate. since ive been on it, i havent felt great...muscle aches, headaches, kidney pain (i thought were kidney stones)....turns out theres a REALLY RARE side effect of Fenofibrate that does everything that happened to me...but my doctor poo-poo'd that idea....its still the best answer i got.

Monotherapy with fibrates have a very small chance of rhabdomyolysis. Like, so small that theyll write research papers examining that one case.

If you take them with at the same time as statins though, the risk is quite high.

yeah, i know the risk is super low...but ive gotten rare side effects from stuff before, ive gotten rare versions of pneumonia, the issue with my back in the way they've happened and the effects on the rest of my body are sort of a mystery (some doctors have described it as some for of "A Degenerative Bone Disorder", but have never been able to figure it out)...

 

so, for me to get something that has like a .01 chance of happening isn't out of the realm of possibility, lol.

May be an autoimmune condition like polymyositis if there's no kidney involvement (good news that, by the way). The muscle biopsy and bloodwork should confirm or rule that out.
