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

 

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

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

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.

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.

...I don't know if I told you about this, but Tyler and I had a discussion a long time ago about "what would happen if Error had downloaded the virus into himself?"As far as I know, he's still cool with the idea.

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.

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...
