Bah. I guess I like brutal realism in my RPs.

 

In reality, the Brotherhood would be so much radioactive dust.

Bah. I guess I like brutal realism in my RPs.

 

In reality, the Brotherhood would be so much radioactive dust.

Which doesn't take into account precog mutants who might have seen a traumatic event like their own death coming, teleporters who can just whisk the nukes away to a different location, mutants who might actually absorb heat or radioactivity to get stronger, anyone in the Brotherhood who might have magic-related powers who could do any number of things...

I've pointed this out to you before, but tactics you'd use on normal humans aren't nearly as effective on mutants

 

Also, I'd like to request right off the bat that the 'no NPC bashing' thing works both ways. I seem to recall other times that the very same people getting annoyed that NPCs were being taken down too easily were knocking Brotherhood NPCs about like skittles. Which does make it less seem like "stop god-modding" and more like "stop not letting my guys look awesome enough". So yeah, if Enforcer NPCs are to be treated as genuine threats by Brotherhood characters then Brotherhood NPCs should be treated as genuine threats by Enforcer characters. Fair is fair

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

Of course. I was emphasizing the Enforcers because, historically, they have been the worst example of it. Enforcer Tower in particular comes to mind.

Naw, he's not dead. He's wearing his resurrection ring.

 

But that wasn't the point of the post: a father just snapped his own son's neck because of one possible instance of the Phoenix losing control. Even if it's not permanent, would you be kosher with that?

Considering what happened last time the Phoenix got out of control, I'd say just about anything is justified if one were trying to contain it.

 

If it's power was turned against humanity proper.....

Simple solution to this problem.Get Ares to summon the Vishanti. Surely they will answer to the son of the Sorcerer Supreme.EDIT: Speaking of which, can we get our SHIELD agents active again? Surely they would have noticed that somebody decided to trash Las Vegsas while they were hacked. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Would they have noticed?Yeah. Do they have any way of doing anything about it while their systems are down? Not in the slightest. Feel free to do whatever you want to have your agents do, but bear in mind that SHIELD's capabilities are zilch right now. Even if Error managed to get control back of the carrier, and I can't remember if he did, their systems are still screwed up as it gets.

So I was doing some research on the Marvel Wiki and this question popped up.When I was reading on the Phoenix Force, it didn't quite strike me as malevolent. It only seemed to be concerned with the progress of life. The "Judgement of the Phoenix" wasn't evil in nature; it was simply concerned with "setting in flow what had become stagnant"-in other words, helping evolution along. So why did it kill all of the major Marvel characters? Was it that it was in its Dark Phoenix persona at the time? What is its motive now? And when will it return to full power?

You're right construct.

 

N2 bombs is where it's at.

 

As for your question, the concept of the Phoenix (last time I checked), was to kill off anything in the universe that hasn't been working (AKA, humanity). It's tied into that somehow...
