Yes, which is exactly the point of trying to avoid DC wank, which is why I do not want a character like JUDY (arguably one of the strongest characters in fiction) to enter death battle. She is not meant for power scaling, she is meant for horror and trolling when you want to spite someone interested in power scaling. If we include someone like JUDY, or someone like TOBA into DB, then DB has the impetus to go full-throttle on their formula. The one with the strongest Meta-narrative wins, and they’ll use DC wank to come up with Superman, and then the show will die.>highest Tier 0 over on VSBW
This is also another problem. I do not think power scaling can be adequately put into ‘tiers’, which is another problem. I do respect you actually taking this seriously thought and not screeching like some Judyfags or Superfags, and I call them out for who they are. Although I personally think Superman would beat these puffed-up characters, I do not try to go into a level where others have gone, and you haven’t either. So thanks for that. I do think we can both agree that where Death Battle is going is a very bad spot, and we are standing at the precipice of that spot with Lex vs. Doom. If Lex gets Apex scaling, then it is over. If he does not, then we have hope.
