Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.
Sorry, but that really bugged me. I can buy that the Slayers all being empowered at once may have given them a huge surge in confidence and strength, allowing them to mow down Turok-Han like cannon fodder, but regular humans doing it? I just thought it marred what was admittedly still an awesome climactic battle.

Sounds good to me.
I'm undecided. Captain America's shield and Buffy's scythe are standard gear, right?
On one hand, Buffy's a better fighter (by a very small margin, mind you) and has better reflexes. She's about as durable as Cap'n, maybe a little more.
On the other, Captain America's a little stronger, has better damage soak (after getting shot down by a Chitauri energy weapon, which are far more powerful than the handgun that would've killed Buffy, Captain America got right back up and kept fighting), and has a better weapon.
This is a really good fight. It's a very close one.
"I am her ending. But she, and I, and him, and them... we... matter. We lose, we love. And in so doing... we become."
I mean, she caught a sword being plunged directly at her, by Angelus, who has some level of enhanced strength and speed, between her hands. She clearly has superhuman reflexes and speed.
Also, Tomzilla, when you say Buffy's a little more durable but Cap has better damage soak, that confuses me. aren't they the same thing? and she seems to have more consistent showings of taking huge hits from superhumans directly to the body, no shield and no body armor.
