    He wasn't really being mean, he was commenting on the abysmal state of Doom's characterization in the movies.

    Ouch.

    Anti-Guyver Weapons

    Maybe the aggressive nanomachines that make up Technovore? Technovore was created when a team of scientists working aboard the orbiting Stark space station accidentally created a microscopic artificial life form. Their company had 'rented rooms' as it were, but when months of research yielded no results, an attempt at forced natural selection had indeed produced an autonomous nanomachine - a self-replicating micro-mechanism which voraciously consumed anything it encountered and partially replicated its macro--structure, learning at tremendous speed along the way. It devoured the staff, learning to build humanoid forms, then consumed machinery and the ability to form itself into weapons; but its most dangerous quality remained the fact that any contact with it was lethal, since its microscopic components were still parts of the whole and would quickly consume and assimilate anything they touched. Iron Man did what he could to contain the Technovore to the space station and send it out into deep space, so far away from Earth it could not return under its own power, but in the end the creature devoured the entire station; ultimately, it was destroyed when Stark managed to activate the station's auto-destruct and it was consumed in a fusion blast. While Technovore was an amoral, infant life form, driven only by voracious hunger for a form of fulfillment which was hopeless since it did not know what it was looking for (namely, an identity of its own), it was insanely dangerous; it proved capable of assimilating anything and it would most assuredly turn on the Guyver, a Zoanoid or a Zoalord. Biology being the basis of all their abilities, it remains to be seen whether they could resist its onslaught; unlike Aptom, Technovore did not bother with infiltrating and rewriting DNA, it gobbled cells right up, analyzing them as it went; and it did so in seconds.

    That is probably true - But -

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Do we have a confirm on that? Three of those losers once fought Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers, that is.

    Avengers: Endgame

    Welp. 'Endgame' has beaten 'Titanic'. And it breezed past the 2-billion mark in 11 days. It took 'Avatar' 47 days. Of course that was ten years ago, but still...

    Apollyon armor relic symbol?

    Given that it took those guys 500 million years to come up with humanity I doubt it. We're like germs to them. We have really brief lives and we proliferate and evolve at an insane rate. Unfortunately for them these germs also have problem-solving intelligence. It could well be that if humanity ever does make it to the stars in 'Guyver' they'll be like cane toads in Australia.

    Avengers: Endgame

    Kronans don't even have mothers. Although they are made of stone, they are functionally hermaphrodites who meld part of their bodies (typically their hands, in a sort of semi-permanent handshake) together and stay put for a couple of weeks, until their shared fist breaks apart and a tiny Kronan emerges. Kronans are also the first enemies Thor ever faced in the comics; in fact they appeared before he did, as Donald Blake armed himself with the staff that would turn into Mjölnir and himself into Thor. This movie version of Korg, son of O-Korg, is more of a parody. Same goes for Miek, who originally was a horribly tragic and evil character.

    Am I really the only one who thinks the character Korg sucks?

    Avengers: Endgame

    Holy cow. It made 1.2 billion already. It blew past 'Captain Marvel' in under five days. I wonder whether it might pass 'Avatar', too.

    Saw it. It's great. Don't read the spoilers, go see it for yourself.

    Guyver (pre gigantic and Exceed) vs Doomsday (1992)

    Resisting kinetic energy, including vibrations, is the definition of structural integrity. You can hang from a knitted scarf or sweater with your full weight and it will very probably not tear, but if you unravel it, it will come apart easily. That's how the frequency blades work. But it's still a function of energy and I don't think they can emit sufficient energy to affect the extremely strong bonds in adamantium. Adamantium doesn't melt, for instance, even in the heart of a star. The vibrations of antarctic vibranium are almost magical in nature, they cause any metal in its vicinity to dissolve, which would suggest it's not a specific frequency. But it can be safely stored inside stone containers with resin seals.

    Which Hyper Zoanoid Would You Be Based On...?

    Valvatos, the eagle Zoanoid, I think; flight, and attacking like a bird of prey. Odd how there are no 'regular' Hyper-Zoanoids that fly.

    Guyver no more?

    Well, that's just great. I suppose the fact Takaya hasn't come out and said it's over leaves a glimmer of hope.

    What happened to the guyver 0 unit?

    It's not so much power - he needs the unit so it can heal his sickness.

    What happened to the guyver 0 unit?

    The Uranus undoubtedly recovered it. That was the whole point of the operation.

    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    I literally didn't see it until the very end.

    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    She does. And the movie manages to capture the feel of the manga pretty well. It encompasses elements from the first four volumes and the OVA. Also: Edward Norton!

    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    If 'Alita' does well... Who knows, we might get a few more manga-based movies. And 'Guyver' has surprisingly much in common with 'Alita' - identity, violence, how to remain yourself...

    Guyver’s Defense

    What does that mean, though?
  22. Currently watching the 5-episode "Master of martial hearts"; finale tonight. It's pretty weird; on the one end it's an ecchi girl-fights-girl-in-a-tournament-for-a-supreme-prize show, on the other hand it has an incredibly sinister undertone, like it's a vicious parody of rather grubby genre. (edit:) Yep. God, that was dark. Dark as Hell. Don't think I've ever seen a story where everybody including the protagonist turns out to be a monster.

    Guyver (pre gigantic and Exceed) vs Doomsday (1992)

    Possible. They included Superman's cellular tissue when they made him regenerate after he was mostly desintegrated after 'Our Worlds At War', so he would have a sensitivity to Kryptonite and hence could be controlled. That worked about as well as you might expect. They couldn't even control him on Apokalips.

    New Chapter status?

    He can't just quit it and leave us holding our collective bag. It's un-Japanese.

    Doomsday was not native to Krypton.
