The fact that he bleeds from a simple sword in 2? The fact that he basically ties in a 1 on 1 fight? The fact that he becomes basically just a better version of Morpheus plus the ability to stop bullets rather than the god they hinted at in 1?

And I don't hate 2 and 3, in fact I really liked 3. They just nerfed neo

Still trying to figure this stuff out. If ya'll want me as a judge I could do a quick midway writeup...

eh, thats pretty weak. how do you hold tying smith against him? that tie resulted from smith, according to the story line, becoming neo's antithesis, his reciprocal anomaly in the equation of the matrix, literally the antichrist. there was no other way that fight could have ended, which was entirely the point. both those guys' feats speak for themselves whether or not one of them got a little cut on the cheek. "just a better version of morpheus" that can fly at speeds that shatter glass and whip vehicles hundreds of feet below him into tornados that he leaves in his wake lol

i don't see anybody on the list that could come close to taking him out.... but thats what matches are for i guess.

I'm not talking about tieing smith. He also tied the oracles bodyguard. He lost to smith

The person who could beat him would lose to about 15 other people on this list. When he gets drafted I'll tell you.

ah. well even then, if you don't think he could have beaten seraph just a few minutes before he destroys hundreds of smith clones, you're nuts. it's a crazy argument anyway, you'd have to ignore loads of feats to assume neo wasn't capable of handling him. it was a test, and while its not said outright, chances are neo understood that.

Iamgine:
Pinhead
Willow
Imotep

Hard to say too much with only three picks. Like pinhead, could win a variety of different matchups.

Kobes Finger:
Neo
tx
Gandalf

Neo at two was a solid choice. I like where you got Gandalf. As far as trumps go, doesn't appear to be any issues within your team so far.

Zen:
Agent Smith
Darth Maul
Gabriel yu law

First pick was stronger than your next two. Reached with Darth Maul. No apparent trump issues.

Harry Callahan:
T-1000
Morpheus
Magneto

Like this team. Like magneto in the third and morpheus in the second. No trump issues.

Magic Chiongson:
Sing
Sylar
Iron Man

Iron man was a good value in the third. Don't watch heroes so I don't know much about Sylar, but it looks like that was an ok pick. No apparent trump issues.

Anti Hero:
Albus Dumbledore
John Murdoch
Obi Wan Kenobi
The Monkey King

Solid team. No picks really stand out to me as being great but they are all good. No trump issues.

Hateraid:
Yoda
Darth Vader
Harry Potter
Black suited Spidey

Immediate clash in the first two picsk with Yoda and Darth Vader. DV might have been a bit of a reach but I like Harry Potter in the third.

Celtics garlic:
Voldemort
Darth Sidious
The Beast Kung Fu Hustle
Glory Buffy

Good first round followed up by ok next three. Darth Sidious wasn't a great value in the second. No trump issues.

A few general observations. A lot of Star Wars characters are gone early. That surprised me the most. Saw a lot of reaches with some of those guys. There are also 3 or 4 guys that I value as late second, early third round picks that have yet to be chosen. Fun draft so far. Nobody is far and ahead the leader and nobody is out of it. keep up the picks and i'll try to follow along as best I can and try to understand more and more.
