    Just curious, how durable does the invincibility powerup make Percy? Did his control over water ever reach such levels that he can do something like blood bending?

    Nothing in the story got through it.

    While that hits no-limit fallacy and all, it's more than enough for this fight,

    I can't recall it actually affecting his powers at all.

    But no, no blood bending.

    Well no I didn't mean the invulnerability thing made his powers stronger, just wondered if over the course of the series they got to that point(I've only read the first 2 books).

    Does the invulnerability make him durable enough to shrug off something like a grenade? Or being stabbed?

    Inside himself, like he did with the Mt. St. Helans bit.

    Specifically Hermes said Fate prevented him from killing Percy for back-talking him, and he went toe-to-toe with some of the toughest titans and didn't get hurt.

    How easily injured is said weak point? Is it one poke to auto-kill Percy?

    I believe he would have to get pierced by a blade to kill him, but it seemed to be overly sensitive, as Annabeth just placing her hand over it sent currents of sensation going through his body, so its safe to assume it extra sensitive. But standard equipment has Percy wearing bronze armor. The real drawback is that when he starts fighting, he goes on auto-pilot, and with the curse, he was practically a berzerker, attacking without holding anything back, so body reading isn't going to help Cass at all.

    That's not how body reading works. It doesn't matter if he consciously plans it or not - his body still gives signs of his next move.

    Just to make sure I'm up on the stuff....hasn't Joker overloaded the body reading via pure crazy?

    And Robin via break dancing or something?

    Are the only two times the reading failed really that silly?

    Transient just likes to do that.

    Why he keeps picking up ridiculous arguments and then try to defend them, I will never know.

    Joker I could maybe see since his crazy is a plot device that come up a lot.
    Robin is just silly as hell though.

    The Robin thing, along with pretty much everything written by that writer about Cass, gets tossed out on the grounds that it might as well be a completely different character, as presented.

    The Joker thing I could buy if it was "I can't tell what he's thinking!" It wasn't. It was "despite a punch being a punch, and picking up a chair to hit me with being picking up a chair to hit me with - basic actions of the body, not the mind - I'm going to be incapable of reading those actions. And forget that in my series I've now learned to fight perfectly well without the body read."

    "Also forget that the Joker is moving in slow motion compared to me. "

    The PIS, it was pretty heavy.
