    Don't think that needs a spoiler. I think she's going to be the measuring stick for Thanos' strength, the way Odin might have been. I think she gets knocked down a peg once IW4 happens.

    Imo she's at Vision's strength level, both of them got their powers from an Infinity Stone.

    How she was able to absorb the blast energy though is just another one of the complaints I have.

    she probably gets the shit kicked out of her in the early part of the movie when she tries to take on thanos solo

    She’s probably a mix of vision and scarlet witch, and not sure how capable thanos will be since he appears to be injured and the gauntlet is scorched

    If he’s still able to use it he should be able to handle her given that her power is merely from one stone

    If Thanos has his full accoutrement of powers, he stomps...

    As was stated in the IW commentary, Thanos was holding back in Infinity War.

    Maybe she wasn't trying to kill any of her former mates during the climactic battle, but he energy blasts weren't enough to incapacitate Yon Rogg, so I don't see how they'd effect Thanos.

    What Feige said in a 2016 interview:

    "With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we’ve ever put in a movie. Her powers are off the charts, and when she’s introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we’ve ever had."

    I take the word "character" to refer to "heroes."

    She isn't going to be more powerful than Thanos+Gauntlet.

    That being said I don't see how she is going to be more powerful than Vision, who was a vibranium android powered by an infinity stone. But I'll leave that to the uber nerds to figure out.

    Saw it tonight and enjoyed it much more than expected due to the feedback ITT.

    It’s obviously not GOTG or Ragnarok level, but I think people are being too hard on it.

    Ehhhh - thought it was fine. Had it’s funny moments (Yeah, he’s my Science guy - lol). As an origin story, didn’t think it fleshed her out very well. Feel like I knew Strange, T’challa, Steve, Tony, Thor after their movies.

    She’s probably the least fleshed our character on the team other than War Machine which is not good for a lead dog.

    Talos was great.

    I get giddy all over again thinking about the interactions we haven’t gotten to see, and all the shit that’s going to go down in End Game.

    I’m really excited for guys like Thor to have to explain to GOTG why Bruce is on the team while he still can’t Hulk out. Drax’s reaction to Hulk. Think of all the characters that haven’t met yet because they were on separate planets.

    I want an end scene reminiscent of Avengers, except they recreate the Last Supper image floating around the internet(still one of my desktops), with all the heroes eating shawarma.

    I’m not really worried about it, but I hope the mood isn’t so somber that we miss opportunity for some comic interactions. Although most of our comedic pieces are ash currently.

    It's not finalized yet, but think of it as if a Cinderella/Snow White level concept just went hard in the paint as an R rated movie. Neither of those is the film being redone but just to use as semi-example.

    It’s more “guardians of the Galaxy” level in scope from what I understand.

    They have so much green-lit money ready to deploy right now you’re going to start seeing a lot of HBO level stuff coming out.

    I’ll know more in a couple of weeks

    Music through the first half of the movie was fine, Nirvana and No Doubt was awkward.

    Nirvana seemed especially misplaced considering all the other songs were female artists/bands.

    On MCU logical terms, Vision *should* be more powerful than CM since he's got the vibranium body, Ultron/Jarvis' AI and Thor's lightning on top of the Infinity stone powers.

    CM has...Jude Law's blood transfusion on top of her Infinity stone powers.

    Powers

    • Density Manipulation-Self: Unearthly, The normal density is Good rank, at densities above Good, the Vision gains body armor equal to the density rank. At densities above Incredible he suffers a -1CS to Fighting and Agility. At densities above Amazing he may use the density rank as strength. At Unearthly density the Vision cannot move. Power stunts:
    • Phase through solid objects at Shift-0 density
    • Flight at Shift-0 density, Poor speed.
    • Disrupting living or non-living targets by solidifying inside them. Damage inflicted is equal to the visions density rank and body armor is ignored. At ranks above Amazing Vision himself suffers Amazing damage. After many uses of this stunt Vision can now yuse this stunt with little risk of accidental killing the target.
    • Life Support: Incredible, no need to eat or breathe.
    • Solar Beams: Remarkable damage (8 areas) from the jewel in his forehead.
    • Solar Regeneration: Amazing unless he has no access to solar or laser energy.

      Powers
      • Transformation: Carol can transform herself into her Binary form at will. In this form, her personality, memories, ect. do not alter, only her appearance. Her skin turns deep red and her hair turns to cold flame. She cannot stay in this form indefinitely, but the length of time has yet to be determined. The length of time would depend on her expenditure of power (if she were to be used as a sort of living battery, her powers could be depleted in a matter of hours).
        • True Flight: Binary can convert her cosmic energy to enable her to fly at an Air Speed of CL3000. Because of an energy release when she does this, Binary may not fly faster than six areas per round when in a planetary atmosphere, as she could ignite the landscape or any organisms that live there. She has Monstrous Agility in flight. Her Strength is not lessened when flying.
        • Focused Energy Release: Binary can do many things by altering the focus of her cosmic energy release. She can emit and hear light, and the rest of the electro-magnetic spectrum as well as gravity. Whenever she wished to focus her cosmic energy and utilize it, she must make a Psyche FEAT roll. She may fire Monstrous intensity beams of heat, gravity/pressure, microwave, ect. up to 8 areas. In addition, she may perform any of the following power stunts:
          • Blasts (of identical energy forms as above) with six area radius which does Shift-Y damage (36 area radius in space or in air).
          • Light Burst (intense light waves) that can blind everyone in a 6 area adius for 1-10 rounds if they do not make an Endurance FEAT roll vs. Unearthly
          • Re-power any type of battery that is charged with electromagnetic energy. This ranges from hi-tech weapons to starship batteries. The amount of time required and the drain on her power is up to the Judge.
        • Energy Absorption: Binary has the ability to absorb various types of energy to fuel her metabolism or re-channel as attacks. She can absorb up to 500 points of energy to boost her strength or offensive energy powers to Shift-Z for 1 round, or heal up to 100 points of damage. She can absorb incoming energy attacks of up to Unearthly rank on a Green or better Intuition FEAT She requires a Yellow intuition FEAt to absorb the Shift ranks. If she fails, she is affected normally.
        • True Invulnerability : Binary's altered genes and hybrid physiology grant her Monstrous protection vs Physical and Energy attacks.
        • Cosmic Perception: While she is in her Binary form, Carol has a CL1000 Psyche for the purposes of perception on a universal scale. This means she has heightened perceptions concerning the flux of energy used in the space around her. If on a planet, she can detect the use of any energy, dimensional apertures, stargates, etc. In space, she can detect warping starships, suns going nova, weapons beyond sight, ect. This does not mean that she knows how the specific energy is used, but she can tell its level and its general purpose (dimensional travel, high intensity weapon, etc.)
      WINNER IS CAPTAIN MARVEL

    Powers

    • Body Resistance: Warbird's altered genes and hybrid physiology grant her Incredible protection vs Physical and Energy attacks.
    • True Flight: Warbird can convert her energy to enable her to fly at Unearthly air speed.
    • Focused Energy Release: Warbird’s current powers are not simply a reversion to her Ms. Marvel powers, but are her former powers as Binary operating at a lower level. Warbird can do many things by altering the focus of her energy release. She can emit and hear light, and the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum as well as gravity. In addition, she may perform/maintain any one of the following power stunts at a time:
    • She may fire Amazing intensity beams of heat, gravity/pressure, microwave, etc. up to 8 areas. She can raise the intensity of the beams to Monstrous by making a Yellow Psyche FEAT, or Unearthly by making a Red Psyche FEAT.
    • Area Blasts (of identical energy forms as above) with six area radius which does Incredible damage.
    • Light Burst (intense light waves) that can blind everyone in a 6 area radius for 1-10 rounds if they do not make an Endurance FEAT roll vs. Incredible.
    • Energy Detection: Carol can see the patterns of energy that form the electromagnetic spectrum with Incredible ability.
    • By making a Red Psyche FEAT, she can boost her strength to Unearthly or her flight to Shift-X for 1 round. She must make a Red Psyche FEAT each round to maintain these levels, or pass out for 1-10 rounds. Her health does not increase when she boosts her strength in this manner.
    • Re-power any type of battery that is charged with electromagnetic energy. This ranges from hi-tech weapons to starship batteries. The amount of time required and the drain on her power is up to the Judge.
    • Energy Absorption: Warbird retains the ability to absorb various types of energy to fuel her metabolism or re-channel as attacks. She can absorb up to 100 points of energy to boost her strength or offensive energy powers to Unearthly for 1 round, or heal up to 100 points of damage. She can absorb incoming energy attacks of up to Amazing rank on a Yellow or better Intuition FEAT. If she fails, or the attack is Monstrous or greater intensity, she is affected normally.

    • Carol is a recovering alcoholic
