    Saying they have some vast unseen world to draw on flies in the face of the whole setup, frankly.

    I get that, but in such a case it should probably be more specifically defined. Or not, since trying to correct the environment for just one guy seems like something silly. In such a case, Jaspers becomes a REALLY bad arena-Rumbles candidate, since someone like Thor would stomp him by blowing up everything in the arena.

    Anyway, if we're going with that interpretation, I'm on board with a Spectre takedown using Jaspers' weakness.

    I think there's a big deffernce between blowing up everything in the arena and wipeing it out of exsitance.

    Exactly.

    Exactly II: Exactly harder.

    Well, wiping everything in the arena out of existance, but yeah.

    Wiping out reality is arguably ringing yourself out, isn't it?
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    You're both still where you are. Reality just is not.

    Yes, but if the arena is no longer around you, then you are no longer in it.

    Maybe an unnecessarily pedantic bit of a technicality though. :)

    It seems to be something of a thread theme...

    I'm trying to work out the functional difference between being in a vacuum and being in a void where a universe used to be.

    No technical concept of space or time. No fundamental particles of any type. No energy, no light. Just true nothingness.

    I'm aware that a lot of these point may well be contradicted by what was shown in the artwork of Captain Britain but I'm fairly sure that's what they were going for.

    Except that space and time are purely defined by the existance of points of reference, meaning that there was space between Jim and the Fury, and time as defined by the differing locations occupied by each as they moved.

    I'll accept the fact that the place was clearly ambiently brightly lit as artistic silliness, but they blatantly failed to show an absence of space/time... If they actually managed to send Jim to a place without those concepts, he'd have ceased to meaningfully exist upon arrival rather than needing to be killed.

    I hate to tell you, but comics have depicted outside/no/destroyed reality zones as it were like that on a variety of ocassions. So again, take it up with comic book metaphysics, which does not care about these issues. It is what it is.

    It's like when they show you characters hovering near the Sun.

    It should be too bright to see (or else verisimilitude/life on Earth wouldn't be sustained), but they need to show stuff to you.
