    How would you defeat this hero/villain?

    Rules: the person above you posts a picture or name of a hero or villain from popular media, anything from comics, tv, gaming, movies, cartoons and so on (include a name if you add a picture and what genre their from if they are in several different genres)
    You then think up a method how you would defeat this character. Be creative.
    You then post your own hero or villain for the next person to defeat.

    Starting off.

    Iron man. Comic version.

    EMP pulse to disable his suit, then electrocution.
    The amount of people who are supposedly over WoW/hate WoW, yet continue to spend every day of their lives whining about it here on the forums, never fails to astound me.

    Obsession is bad, kids!

    I was going to suggest this as well, but when I googled it I got answers that said his suit was "hardened against EMPs" or "had 10 second restart times" (WTH?).

    My alternative would be to use a powerful electromagnet to lock Iron Man down, like the ones you see on industrial cranes. It'd completely immobilize him and fry his circuitry. You could then easily kill him (assuming he wasn't already crushed inside his own suit). The only hard part would be trying to bait Iron Man close enough to electromagnet, so it'd probably need to be hidden inside a building, and you'd need like a hostage so he has to come inside rather than simply blowing the building up. I suppose the only weakness in the plan depends on whether or not Iron Man has infared vision or something and can detect, but I'm not getting into semantics.



    Joshua Bright from Trails in the Sky

    Trails has a lot of powerlevel bullshit, where characters like McBurn and Arianrhod wield extraordinary raw firepower, and are therefore considered "unbeatable". That doesn't make sense when you have characters like Rean Schwarzer, Fie Clausell, and Joshua Bright, who have super speed. They can (canonically, not just in gameplay but during serious cutscenes on a consistent basis) flash step a fifty foot distance in the blink of an eye, leaving afterimages of themselves that other people focus on rather than their actual position. I'm sorry Falcom, it doesn't matter how powerful McBurn's flames or supernovas are; won't save him from a guy zipping around and stabbing him in the back in an instant. Thus, why I am curious as to if anyone has any idea how they could be countered.

    I think this could be applied to characters with superspeed in general, like Quicksilver. Is there a way to defeat them?

    Deathstroke has beaten Flash through planning and strategy. A series of traps that caused him to both be forced to travel a specific way and be thrown off balance. Then he hit him where he knew Flash had to be. That being said, I'm pretty sure that was Wally and not Barry, but I can't remember. Ice also causes speedsters all sorts of problems, depending on the writer.

    Emp his ass, punch hole in his suit and send in a horde of angry carnivorous insects to eat his ass alive.

    Ironman suit is made up of nonferromagnetic in most comics now a days so magnets wouldn’t work.
    Honestly the best way to defeat him is misdirection, he is his own worst enemy and has multiple times done himself in by deleting his own brain or wrecking his own body. Just gotta play to his ego and encourage some of his more deranged ideas till he kills himself again.

    For super speed characters you just use their own ability against them.
    Tech way, make an elaborate trap filled base and place an electrified(or exploding)Doppler of yourself in the middle, while they feel smug navigating it, they won’t realize the dopple is the real trap all along.

    Magic way, reverse portal reflect spell(basically he stabs himself) fire shield, etc

    Ship him tons and ton of alcohol and let him pickle his liver.
    Or in his sleep with a stick.
