If Cap were to be given a green lantern ring and an hour to practice with what could he do? Well as far as I can tell Drax thinks Cap would be a lamo with the ring. This IMO underestimates Cap and shows a lack of knowledge for the character. If you think he cant do anything of great value you simply dont understand how Cap works. Cap has the ability to master new skills and technologies in short order when he finds them. His adaptability to new problems is one of his greatest strengths. In an hour Cap isnt going to be Hal Jordan but hes going to be very skilled with the ring and can probably boast one of the toughest to break shields ever used by a GL. A shield construct fueled by Caps willpower would be nigh unbreakable, even with a mere hour to use it. If you hate Cap thats one thing but to underestimate his ability to adapt like this is flawed. My whole team was based around several key ideas and your refusal to even grant me this kills the whole point of my team. Well that and your ability ignore that my team would act as a team, you simply reviewed them on their individual power levels. So why do teams if thats all your going to do?

But I thought it would be interesting to see what the battle boarders at large thought about Cap with a GL ring. Its an interesting idea to say the least. How would he do?

That's 2+ as of the second fight, but you also fail to take into account that he's the leader of your team... he has to learn about his foes and come up with a plan on top of practicing...

Em level Lantern aka Fodder...

>This IMO underestimates Cap and shows a lack of knowledge for the character. If you think he cant do anything of great value you simply dont understand how Cap works.

Yes, yes, nothing new here...

>Cap has the ability to master new skills and technologies in short order when he finds them. His adaptability to new problems is one of his greatest strengths.

He will be able to use the ring, I gave him that much...

>In an hour Cap isnt going to be Hal Jordan but hes going to be very skilled with the ring and can probably boast one of the toughest to break shields ever used by a GL.

Even name Lantern's would be P.Metas if they relied solely on constructs. I don't see Cap unlocking anything else and certainly not mastering the art of construct-making...

>A shield construct fueled by Caps willpower would be nigh unbreakable, even with a mere hour to use it.

Lantern constructs break all the time, rookie Lanterns certainly can't make "nigh-unbreakable" shields. His normal shield is tougher than any Lantern construct that I've encountered...


>If you hate Cap thats one thing but to underestimate his ability to adapt like this is flawed. My whole team was based around several key ideas and your refusal to even grant me this kills the whole point of my team.

Were you expecting everyone to just agree with you, I wonder...

>Well that and your ability ignore that my team would act as a team, you simply reviewed them on their individual power levels. So why do teams if thats all your going to do?

Individual levels are the alpha & omega to teams. When half your team can be taken out by one lone guy of the other team(as I explicitly stated in my vote), then no amount of teamwork's gonna save the day. The best way to make your team functionally powerful is to not have weak links...

Miserably ;-> ?
