Review of chapter "The Tower Battle Part 1" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
I just found this story tonight, and I'm really enjoying it! I'll admit, I was expecting the Marvel Heroes to show up again, and I'm glad to see I was right. Looking forward to more

Review of chapter "The Tower Battle Part 1" from Chikageko
Still say all you gota do is phase glory down to the bedrock and let go. Even if you're doing that stupid movie thing where she just shifts mater out of her way that'd entomb Glory and or doc long enough to make them total nonissues.

Regardless, largely good writing.

Review of chapter "Glory vs. Marvel" from Chikageko
Very nice battle, but if you REALLY wanted to hurt glory you would have had Dawn/kitty Phase her into the street and let go. it might not have killed her, but having your entire body fused on the molecular level with foreign matter would at the very least make Glory stiff, slow and in pain if not dead outright.

Review of chapter "New Clothes" from Chikageko
Janus is the god of change, choices and new beginnings; he causes and promotes chaos for what it can bring, not for chaos itself. Largely amoral, Janus is one of the new truly neutral gods in any pantheon and his doctrine prompts his followers to do something new, not necessarily chaotic. Order from chaos, chaos from order, anything to upset the establishment. considering the chaos and death of the hellmouth Janus would probably be more willing to help Giles perform the spell this time around than he was to help Ethan.

Intersting choice of costumes as well, though with willows raw power and demonstrated abilities you could easily given her Jean Grey sans the phoenix. Telekinesis and telepathy and pyrokinesis are all things the stupid girl has used before and seeing as she becomes a goddess later on the phoenix wouldn't really be a stretch either.

As for Dawn, Armor (Ichiki Hisako) would also have been a good choice. As dangerous as Juggernaut Hisako's armor also allows her to remain unharmed from attacks by speedsters, hulk and a fair variety of energy casters. The only two who have ever shown to pierce her protection were wolverine and his claws and the various Psychics with their mental only attacks.

Xanders costume and explanation I liked quite a bit, it'll reinforce those soldier memories and Cap's steadfast hero complex might be enough to give the boy the spine every Fanfic author somehow believes the little weasel actually has. Spike however I think was a bad choice. the Iron Fist gets his super powers from a connection to the immortal dragon Kung Lung and is more likely to burn the vamp alive than empower him. better idea would have been one of the later versions of Wolverine, a low powered mutant who's healing factor would likely revive spike and stick around later, acts as a father figure, protector and confidant to most of the Xkids including rogue, shadow-cat and armor, and is a know god killer because of his adamantium claws.

Dazzler works for Anya, she's ostentatious and powerful though doesn't typically use her powers to their best extent, very strong parallels all around. Dazzler can generate intense bursts of light and or sound, which she most typically uses to impressive effect in her band, but can, if pressed, create ultra high or low frequency sonic attacks to give the many comic banshee's a run for their money and fire off powerful laser attacks.

Tara...I don't know. Looks good enough to me, i'm not familiar enough with character or costume to really blather on but Buffy is another one I would have changed. you talked about stress on the body and Tigra goes through some fairly sever physical changes inside and out to be little more than a supercharged buffy via technomancy rather than spiritual enhancement. If you simply wanted to supercharge buffy to be a god killer without stressing her magic to much Xena, Wonder woman, or Vixen would have been better choices. Xena and wonder woman are obvious, but Vixen ties in with the spiritual enhancement part of the slayer curse as she summons the spirits of animals, magic and mundane, to perform devastating attacks.
Comments from author:
Okay I'll give you the points for being versed in Janus. I actually know most of that, but I was playing to the way that the god is normally portrayed in the series through Ethan.

Costume reasoning's:

Willow-This would be right before Willow started becoming a bad ass Wiccan something she needed Tara to become mentally disabled before she would accept that she had the power. With Tara still going strong though Willow probably wouldn't have gone as deep into her magic and acknowledged just how strong she really was. With that in mind she hasn't been displaying any large levels of power so Xander wouldn't get her a costume with such raw potential.

Dawn-I simply don't know the Armor character well enough to use it. So I went with one I have a pretty good knowledge of. What can I say I've always liked the character for some weird reason.

Xander-I simply went with one of the unpowered characters that was useful. Face it all unpowered characters have a level of badassery that the Xander character rarely if ever displayed himself despite what a lot of other writers would like to argue.

Spike-This one actually goes into the mental state of the Xander character. Can you really believe that he would willingly give Spike the chance to become the Wolverine? Remember this is a chipped Spike not a ensouled one. He would have been real reluctant to give him something like that. Since Iron Fist is human with a slight mystical enhancement he doesn't have to worry about Spike becoming to powerful later on when he decides to stab them in the back.

Anya-I just thought Dazzler made a good fit with the former demon.

Tara-I admit to never being a big Tara fan mainly cause I hated she was Oz's replacement in some ways so I had to really work on finding a good fit for the witch.

Buffy-I chose Tigra because I've always wanted to write a fic where Buffy got turned into TIgra and was in part where the original inspiration for the idea came from. Xena would have been another good fit. WW would have simply been to powerful though particularly with the rules I set up about the amount of power needed and the consequences of getting to much power.

Didn't they kill Doc in the last chapter or did they forget the most basic of Hellmouth rules to make sure the demon is really dead?

I'm glad that they did, but I wasn't expecting them.

Review of chapter "The Tower Battle Part 1" from BlueEyedJedi
Don't suppose they brought 'Goldielocks', who could go mano e mano God to Goddess with Glory. Heck, Hercules could smack the bitch down as well. (She's not currently a total god right now, soooo.....) In any case the bitch is going down.
Comments from author:
Wouldn't that make the fight end way to soon though? I mean where's the suspense of win or lose if the Lion of Olympus or the Thunderer are present?

Review of chapter "Regroup" from djhardim
Yet another question about empowerment (sorry)

Could a BtVS normal human handle the powers and abilities of Deathstroke?

EDIT: This part made me wonder - "Deathstroke possesses various enhanced abilities stated to be almost superhuman according to DC Bios and Comic bios. These include the strength of ten men and heightened speed, agility, stamina, and reflexes."

I wasn't sure if the part that indicated that he had the strength of ten men would be a deal breaker given the limitations you set.

Truthfully, I'm not that familar with the comic book character.
Comments from author:
From what I recall of the character his main power was using more brain power at a time than most normal humans do or something like that. Technically a lot less powerful than say Cap's super soldier serum which enhanced all of a person's physical abilities to their peak. So I imagine that it would work pretty well for the spell. I'm more of a marvel person actually so while I've read various DCU comics I don't know the Terminator all that well aside from that Teen Titan cartoon who I'm betting was a way watered down version of the character.
