    Not sure I agree with some of those...

    For one, if you`re talking about the hulk, you should just think of the hulk, in which case he is not smarter than Thor (who ranks terribly!).

    Yes, Cyclops can project energy, but why the highest level on the chart?! - it`s only one type of energy and not all that useful. Iceman is an Omeg-level mutant and isn`t on par according to this, neither is The Human Torch...

    And the BIG ones... Wolverine ranks on par with Professor X in durability?! Wolverine and Captain America are not considered higher in terms of fighting ability?! (they`re widely considered the best in Marvel!) Professor X is considered smarter than Beast and of all people, Mr Fantastic?! Hawkeye is better at fighting than Wolverine, Cptain America?! - not chance!

    Yeah, the skills gauge is utterly meaningless. I guess it`s kind of a cool site for people who aren`t familiar with comic books to look at. Though, it`ll only earn scorn from people who are actually well versed on the subject.

    Not only was this deadly dull? It wasn`t all that interesting either...

    Nor accurate, as @beternal pointed out, but I only checked out the group I knew most about (Avengers).

    I have to agree, beternal. Most of these just don`t look right.

    @kitteh9: Sorry, but those "charts" were meaningless! And how can you compare one hero`s fighting ability to another`s? There`s too many factors involved.
    Intelligence? How wrong did they get those scores! What does "energy" mean? How is it different from endurance? Energy-weapon attack? idk?

    Anyhow, I put up some REAL superheroes before I read your comment ;-)

    Hahahaha. I opened this up saw how low Beast`s intelligence and wolverine`s durability were and knew it was obviously created by someone who didn`t have a clue what they were talking about.

    "I guess I should let you know how I really feel about your posts from now on, huh?"

    That is what pretty much everyone thinks of his posts which is why they all end up ranked under 2 stars, but for some reason you guys keep approving them. Why is that?

    which is why they all end up ranked under 2 stars,
    @HolyGod: as usual: You spout biased, bigoted bullpoop without even making the SMALLEST effort to check the facts.

    So sad for you, to be so filled with hate and stupid...

    Also: I point out that people like you see my name on a post, rate 1 (regardless of content) and don`t even watch. So yes! In the face of active bigotry my "post rate" is lower than it should be.

    But my "average score" is under 2? I`ll bet my membership vs yours that`s a lie...

    326 links: average score = ???

    Wanna bet? No cheating and working it out! Time limited offer...

    Have you really NOT added any links @HolyGod? Or did they get removed somehow when you got banned?

    Anyhow, this time you`re DEAD WRONG, everyone knows it and I can prove it. So please shut f*cking up and stop slandering me.

    I continue to ask you NICELY to behave yourself. You respond with bully tactics, hate and lies.

    Please "put up" or shut up: 2.001+ = you leave forever, OK?

    (Hint: Bye Bye!)

    Just preventing the old "delete and pretend it never happened" tactic.

    I`d take a screenshot, but that`s more work than I`d care to do regarding @JollyGod...

    "these charts are trash."
    Yeah. Wolverine is rated too low. Marvel Girl is rated too high.

    Who-the-hell would write Scott Summers into being a radio announcer?

    Cap`s durability is way too low. He jumped from a moving plane (I think it was without a chute) with Wolverine (no chute) during WWII. In that story line, it`s how Magneto is rescued from the prison camp.

    Here are the ratings of 5cats last 18 posts that are at least 5 days old, giving people enough time to view and rate them:

    2.0
    1.9
    2.2
    2.2
    2.6
    1.9
    1.9
    2.5
    2.1
    2.2
    2.1
    1.8
    1.3
    1.6
    2.3
    2.0
    2.0
    1.7

    That is an average score of 2.01 which is SHOCKINGLY low considering you can`t give 0 stars. 1 star is the lowest possible score. So that isn`t 2.01 on a scale of 0-4, it is a scale of 1-4.

    That is a 25%. The community has given his content an F. If the community has decided that we hate the stuff he posts why does his content still get posted. Isn`t the job of the people who run the site to give the community content they like?

    Holy Cherrypicking God Batman!

    5 Most recent: 3.0 2.9 3.1 2.2 2.3

    Furthermore: FOUR posts have dropped since you made your list. HOW weeks old posts are dropping? I cannot say for sure...

    After your "cut off"?
    2.7 2.6 2.7 2.0 2.0 2.7 1.8 1.9 2.9 1.8 2.7 3.3

    So my past 35 posts? (yes, also an arbitrary cut off, but I have NO idea what #36 & onward scores are)
    2.297

    I did a random page from my past posts? 25 averaged 2.592

    Lets examine the lowest scores in your list:
    cats, politics, cats, politics, monstergirl, anime video, anime video, politics, AGW and cats...

    SO: What`s your point @JollyGod? You object to cats, anime and politics at IAB?

    Serious Question: How many posts have you put up? (apx) Your profile got erased, eh? I thought you`d put up several... how`d they score?

    Just for fun: My past 40 posts = 2.278

    Minus cats and anime? 2.418... (33 posts)

    Again: what`s you point?

    Again: Just for fun:

    I took a look at a randomly selected poster:
    Been here for years. 47 posts. 1,000+ comments

    His/her past 10 posts? 2.380 average.

    AGAIN: What`s your point?

    Further fun:

    Another random IABer:
    Been here a looong time. 200+ posts 1,000+ comments

    Past 10 average? 2.440

    Me? MY past 10 average = 2.400 (as of when I took my data, it could easily have changed since then)

    That is a 25%.
    Jesus Tapdancing CHRIST! @HG has NO FREAKING IDEA! But refuses to STFU!

    So that isn`t 2.01 on a scale of 0-4, it is a scale of 1-4.

    HE EVEN PUTS UP why HE`S WRONG! It simply `beggars the imagination`...

    ffs: (1+4) / 2 = 2.5
    The AVERAGE score (50%) is 2.5
    2 = 33% and 3 = 66%

    A complete and utter idiot.

    Standard Deviation: IIRC (this is just from memory, I cannot be bothered to look it up so my EXACT numbers may be off)
    In a random number grouping: 33% either way (off the average) is "significant" (depending on several other factors, of course!)
    Thus any score OVER 3 or UNDER 2 is "outside of random chance" (most of the time, of course!)

    So? EVEN with the CHERRYPICKED numbers? @HolyGod is STILL wrong!

    Without an IAB Baseline? ALL these numbers are inconclusive... just fyi...
