With light speed (even fraction of light speed), there is no chance for Necromander.
But what about Barricade? Super friendly old-timey horse that likes to run really fast vs a voracious insatiable steel plated barracudillo that looms over it twice as big? pshhhhh

Getting to light speed takes time, too.

If I'm not mistaken, time stops at light speed as mass becomes infinite. Mr. D'Ed doesn't actually need to hit his opponents, just let his gravitational horizon unzip them from their bodies, one molecule at a time, feet first.

Nah, Anyone who's played Warcraft could tell you he'd have some instants in there.

Mr D’ed is reincarnated right? Resurrected from yesterday?

If Necromander kills Mr D’ed and then brings him back to life to subjugate , is he like a double dead horse?..

I like Necromanders odds, but Barricade is fast! He can dodge the spells and then take the damn lizard out. If an incantation manages to get to him, his body surface will simply deflect the spell and then he will go in for the kill!

Can anybody do anything in the 70 nanoseconds before the area is destroyed? Read this excellent treatise on if a baseball was pitched at .9c.

So then... A Horse running at the speed of light will simply disintegrate and take out its opponent at the same time! UNLESS said opponent had an indestructible skin of steel scales! That means that the necromander will disintegrate due to a lack of time to conjure and that Barricade will emerges unscathed and victorious

Awesome citation, Tom.
They neglected to reference the effect of the baseball on spells, probably because the velocity and mass of spells is missing from much of the published physics reference data. Tell me how in hell we're supposed to arrive at a scientifically intelligent discussion with so many holes in the MBDM universe?

Yeah, I know. We need to suck it up and make unsubstantiated claims, like we always do, and hope everyone has drunk enough that they won't notice.

He lives! He lives! Mr. D'Ed lives! If you kill him, he wins!
He has merely disguised himself as Necromander.
We demand to see Necromander's Original Hawaiian Birth Certificate, Social Security card and college transcripts, dental records, and a 40 pound sample of DNA.

I went to find a WoW Warlock meme to celebrate this momentous occasion, but google came back with this, whcih I think is just as appropriate.

Nextomander?

Necroremander?

"Totally freakin' doesn't count 'cause the whole thing was rigged by people with no respect for comic-book physics"? :evil: :mrgreen:

Also, last I checked, 5 + 4 + 2 + 1 is 12, not 10!!!
Vote Fraud! :shock:

I like Nextomander. I was in a similar vain with the ones I brainstormed, Necromaster, Necromanster, Necromassacre and Salamaster. None are exactly perfect though. It's tricky business.

In the new sketch he is starting to look like a gila monster, if that counts for anything.

Warlock, lich, macabre, carrion, and amphibian were other words to perhaps work in.

I'm feeling a big lawsuit unless we stop the banshee discrimination around here. How about Necrobanshee?

Or Phil Necro... a beast with a mean knuckleball?
