    Default Weakest person who can save the world in "The Cabin In The Woods"

    So, who can take care of business and end the foolishness?

    1. Straight up plan the whole scenario well enough to pull it off.

    2. kill off the ancient ones themselves.

    3. Do both.

    4. Kill the ancient ones while they sleep.

    What did the Ancient Ones do besides reach up a giant hand at the end?

    Supposedly, but we don't see what happened or how they did it. Aside from a giant hand we really have nothing to go on.

    As for the thread, (really hope this isn't a hate thread by the way).
    So, who can take care of business and end the foolishness?

    1. Straight up plan the whole scenario well enough to pull it off.
    Anyone with the morales to put up with killing a bunch of kids every year, to save the world, but stay professional, and intelligent about it. Charles Foster Offdinson (Metalocaypse) comes to mind for me. Smart, willing to have people die to achieve his ends, organized, and has a desire to save the world. Ra's Al Ghul would probably be a good bet too.

    2. kill off the ancient ones themselves.

    3. Do both.

    4. Kill the ancient ones while they sleep.
    Near impossible to tell, the Ancient Ones are near featless, so any guess would be utter speculation.

    Actually I meant he would be wiping the floor with the Ancient Ones.

    For some fuzzy reason, I have a fanfic idea where the Avengers/Crimebusters (Watchmen) get caught in the ritual:

    Whore = Black Widow/Silk Spectre

    Athlete = Hawkeye/Comedian

    Scholar = Bruce Banner/Ozymandias

    Fool = Iron Man/Rorschach

    Virgin = Captain America/Nite-Owl

    God-Killer = Thor/Dr. Manhattan

    No they did not, they hadnt even left that area of the woods when the movie ended; they had just a few seconds before the credits even bursted a hand out of the complex. Going purely by their in movie feats(which is all we know of them) a few A10s will take them out without any trouble. These guys dont even warrant a full scale National Guard mobilization.

    That's only based off assuming the Ancient ones have lower durability, which is something that can't be determined without feats. For all we know they have Galactus+ durability.

    That isn't how things work here. They have Galactus level durability only if they show Galactus level durability. Characters without many feats aren't ideal for rumbles, but if they are going to be used we can only go by what we saw.

    Granted we can assume some things just by the sheer size of the creature. For instance..I'm doubting a dude with a pistol could kill it. But we don't have any reason to believe a missile assault wouldn't destroy the thing.

    Now I get that they are probably a lot more powerful then we have seen, but it's hard to debate in that style when you're dealing with uncertainties. For all we know the Ancient Ones were nice guys and the hand bursting out at the end was snatching them in order to take them to an awesome underground keg party.

    That would be an awesome alternate ending.

    Synchronicity! I just saw this like 2 hours ago.

    1. Straight up plan the whole scenario well enough to pull it off.

    Pull what off? To save the world you (SPOILERS) just have to get killed. Pretty easy...

    2. kill off the ancient ones themselves.

    Superman? Thor? Wonder Woman? We don't really see what the ancient ones can do, so I'll just play it safe with the high end flying bricks.

    3. Do both.

    Both what?

    4. Kill the ancient ones while they sleep.

    They're not asleep: they're watching TV. People sometimes make that mistake with me: I'm resting my eyes people! What snoring. Of course, I never doze to the reality TV crap like them.
