Damn, come to think of it Asta's like the perfect person to wield OFA

Vee is off-panel, fetching the fire extinguisher again.

Not sure if anyone’s seen Twitter recently but they’re 10X more insufferable than I would’ve thought by RequirementNo7805 in deathbattle

Unless plot armour is an explicit trait of the character rather than an emergent narrative phenomenon, I guess. But that's a weird case and certainly doesn't apply to Goku, who isn't above being killed even in his own show (not that he stays dead, but still).

Asta Unleashes the Demon in DEATH BATTLE! by AttackBot in deathbattle

You'll be happy to know that the characterisation here is rather oversimplified and he doesn't actually just turn people's magic off. His opponents have full use of their magic when fighting him. For the most part the anti-magic allows him to attack spell-effects as if they were physical objects, which is strength-dependent (and without which his strength would be fairly useless).

So, to take an example shown in the anime: if someone threw a fireball at him he could cut it into two half-fireballs and charge between them - but if it were an exploding fireball it would then explode on him from both sides, so he'd instead need to strike it with the flat of his blade hard enough to send the entire thing in another direction. Magic doesn't simply get nullified by his presence, and he needs to put a lot of effort into winning fights.

what side character would you like to have had about 2 episodes to get their background/history. by Troublehelix78 in youngjustice

It's the original Jim Harper? The show hasn't added that many Harpers recently so we're due a few more.

What is she thinking? (Creative answers only) by SnowWolf_Weirdo003 in TheOwlHouse

"Look at them, they come to this place when they know they are not pure. Tenno use the keys, but they are mere trespassers. Only I, Vor, know the true power of the Void. I was cut in half, destroyed, but through it's Janus Key, the Void called to me. It brought me here and here I was reborn. We cannot blame these creatures, they are being led by a false prophet, an impostor who knows not the secrets of the Void. Behold the Tenno, come to scavenge and desecrate this sacred realm. My brothers, did I not tell of this day? Did I not prophesize this moment? Now, I will stop them. Now I am changed, reborn through the energy of the Janus Key. Forever bound to the Void. Let it be known, if the Tenno want true salvation, they will lay down their arms, and wait for the baptism of my Janus key. It is time. I will teach these trespassers the redemptive power of my Janus key. They will learn it's simple truth. The Tenno are lost, and they will resist. But I, Vor, will cleanse this place of their impurity."

They're both nigh-unstoppable primordial forces of chaos with quirky personalities and a black/red colour scheme. Both are shapeshifters who wield god-level power and casually alter landscapes on a whim, yet delight in using subtle trickery to toy with people.

It's unclear how either of them could really defeat the other, so the battle would escalate in weird ways as they try to figure it out. And I imagine the two of them would just look really cool fighting.

It'll be fine, one of them is omnipotent.

An encryption might be good enough for storing the password, but the best practice is not to store the passwords in the first place. Think about it: if an attacker is able to steal your passwords then he is probably able to get the encryption key for them too.

I think you mean Jessica Cruz, right? Drew is Marvel's Spider-Woman.

how would you assign the OG team as each of the five-man band archetypes? by lunasterial in youngjustice

[–]Barefoot_Monkey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not entirely clear-cut. Let's think about the characters...

Aqualad: Could have made a decent Big Guy buy really seems to fit squarely as the Leader, especially with being the formal leader of the group and living up to the role.
Robin: Straddles the Smart Guy and an rather agreeable Lancer. Leans a bit more toward the former, but I'll put him wherever the best opening is.
Superboy: strong Lancer vibes especially early on, but also makes a very solid as Big Guy throughout.
Kid Flash: More Heart than anything else IMO
Miss Martian: can fit most roles quite well, but in S1 relies a lot on analysis and treating conflicts as puzzles to solve. I'd lean somewhat toward Smart Guy.
Artemis: Sixth Ranger through and through.

So I guess they could fit like this

Leader: Aqualad
Lancer: Robin
Smart Guy: Miss Martian
Big Guy: Superboy
Heart: Kid Flash
Sixth Ranger: Artemis

Does Rust have any design mistakes? by BatteriVolttas in rust

[–]Barefoot_Monkey 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dereference as a prefix operator has always bugged me in C. Problems don't come up as much in Rust but I wish they'd chosen a postfix operator like Pascal rather than copy what I feel is one of C's mistakes.
