However, with Kenshiro's MT he can. Which therefore allows him to counterattack.
The point being, adding intangibility to Val's skillset is hardly redundant.
Zombies Val can't hurt?You must know zombies I don't.
Just pick one with ridiculously good regen. Like Edo Tensei zombies, for instance.
Granted, there's a theoretical possibility that Val can smack them far enough into space, but I'm not aware of any instance of him doing something like that. And despite his class 100 striking power, he doesn't have the strength to toss them into space either. Unless his opponent is charging at him with PC Kryptonian strength and speed, his redirection trick won't really work.
