    If one were to measure the strength of Buffy Summers on Marvel's RPG scale, what would it be? Remarkable? Incredible?


Buffy is somewhere in between movie Captain America and his comic book self. Above the 800 lbs (Peak human) mark but below 2,000 lbs. In some episodes, her strength was even below that in some of her low showings.

    I haven't read any of the comics, so I'm just going by the TV show, but the greatest strength feat of hers I can think of is when Dark Willow was coming to kill Jonathan and Andrew who were being held in jail. When Willow arrives, she sees the bars of the cell have been pulled apart wide enough for the guys to escape. We don't see it happen, but Willow says "Buffy", so we know it was her. What Marvel or DC characters does Buffy compare to in strength?


Buffy is a good comparison to comics Captain America more than any other character. And she's comparable to a slightly weaker version of DC's Deathstroke.

    And for that matter, how strong is Angel? We know that slayers are stronger than vampires. Angel has acknowledged that Buffy is stronger than he is. I can't think of any strength feats for him other than being able to trade blows with Buffy, so their strengths can't be too different. Who might he compare to in Marvel or DC?


It was never clarified precisely how strong Angel was. I'd say at least 5-10% weaker than Buffy.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
