Re: Heh. Good explanation.

In Response To: Re: Heh. Good explanation. (SEspider)

: Says who? Keep in mind that without the super soldier serum, Cap would just
: be a scrawny and weak Steve Rodgers that would be in his 80s or dead at
: this time. And not taking in time differences (cause we're clearly not
: with this fight), who's to say john would have grown up to be a soldier
: and left Reach to fight the Covenant?

Postmortem said that John, with training as an adult, would be on part with Captain America. I was pointing out that Cap has been augmented with super reflexes and strength, and is therefore more than a match for an unaugmented Spartan.

: You're assuming again. Mendez had far tougher training the Bats did because
: his career demanded it. A lot of Bruce's training is self taught and
: through having money to get the lessons he got. Without the money to back
: him up, Bruce would just be a nutball in costume. He may have taught
: himself some skills but nothing on the level of Mendez, Halsey, and the
: numerous AI teachers John had.

I'm comparing Mendez to Batman, nobody else. And yes, Batman is largely self-taught, but he's had years and years of on-the-job experience fighting against nutjobs, mutants, and regular criminals.

: That is if you don't have a supercomputer living in your head to wirelessly
: generate and activate giant magnets from your surroundings.

I mean, what? You expect Cortana to generate supermagnets in the environment? Are they conveniently fighting around a Tokomak?

: Or drop any
: heavy object on Logan. Logan has a healing factor and unbreakable bones.
: But he's not super strong, fast, or very intelligent. Heck, he's not even
: tall. A simple gaint construction magnet could hold Logan at bay as could
: any heavy objects that pin him down.

Gee, John's so lucky that he met Wolverine in a junkyard, right?

: John's strength, speed, and intellect
: could stop Wolverine. Stick him to a magnet and drop him in a vat of
: melted Adamantium or a valcano and it's game over for the old man. John's
: to smart to let Wolvie get within arms reach of him. As are Spider-Man,
: Ironman, Batman, and pretty much any smart hero or villian.

You're fanboying, Spider.
I'm comparing the qualities that Postmortem mentioned, and only those qualities. I'm not stupid enough to say that Wolverine is going to win because Adamantium is probably stronger than what John has.

: 20th-21st centery tech versus 26th centery tech. Hmmmmm Um No

Oh, don't pull that.
You can't compare technology between fictional universes based solely on the timeline. Otherwise, Halo would be indistinguishable from StarCraft.

: The hammer is a mix of tech and magic. Cortana would hack the tech side in
: seconds.

That's assuming that she can interface with the technology. She had exposure to Forerunner technology prior to the first Halo, and decades of UNSC intel on Covenant systems which probably helped. This would be her first encounter with Asgardian technology.

And besides, for all we know the hammer is a freaking brick. How does she hack it if, say, it doesn't take commands over the radio? Or if it's not hooked up to a communication frequency she has access to?
