    couple feats from the Disney cannon novel Lords of the Sith

    Deflecting fire from a freighter
    ” The freighters opened fire, writing thick lines of plasma onto the air. The shots churned the ground, destroyed trees, heated the air of the clearing; one slammed into the chest of a Royal Guard and vaporized all of him save for his helmet.

    Lost in the Force, Vader anticipated the shots that would have hit him, saw the appropriate angles of impact and deflection, and used the rapid spinning of his lightsaber to turn first one, then a second, and then a third shot not into the tree line but back at the ships, the heat and energy of the blaster shots driving him backward, warming the hilt of his weapon, a heat he could feel even through his glove. ”
    — Lords Of The Sith
    ————————————
    pulling a freighter from the sky (also shows Sideous doing the same)
    ” Vader, too, lifted a hand and reached out with the Force toward the other ship.

    Vader enmeshed himself in the Force, in his seething, ever-present wrath, and used it to take hold of the freighter and drive the entire ship toward the ground. He grunted with the effort, his respirator increasing his rate of breathing to account for the exertion.

    The ship, its damaged engines unable to compensate enough against the downward push of Vader’s power, went nose-down and streaked into the ground. Vader imagined the screams of the pilots as they watched the forest race toward them. The ship disappeared behind the tree line and exploded into a fireball that reached above the forest’s canopy and caused the ground to vibrate. A cloud of black smoke rose into the darkening sky. A second boom sounded behind him, his Master having driven the second ship into the ground the same way. The forest went silent for a moment in the wake of the explosions, with only Vader’s breathing to disrupt the quiet, before the howls and chirps and squeals of Ryloth’s fauna returned. Vader, his Master, and the two Royal Guards stood untouched amid the smoking craters of blasterfire that pockmarked the terrain. The Royal Guards gazed at Vader, at his Master, and Vader imagined the looks of wonder they must have under their helmets. They knew the Emperor had power, though Vader doubted they’d ever seen it so nakedly displayed. ”
    — Lords Of The Sith
    ——————————————————-
    from the other Disney canon novel Tarkin.
    —-
    crushing a Twi’leks heart.
    ” He began to pace again. “It has come to my attention that a certain being present has failed to grasp that his recent actions reflect a flagrant disrespect for the Emperor. His brazen behavior suggests that he actually takes some pride in his actions. But his duplicity has not gone unnoticed. We are pleased to be able to make an example of him, so that the rest of you might profit at his expense.”

    Vader came to an abrupt stop, scanning his audience and certainly sending shivers of fear through everyone—Toydarian, Dug, and Devaronian alike. As his raised right hand curled slowly into a fist, many of them began nervously tugging at the collars of their tunics and cloaks. But it was the Twi’lek prefect, standing not a meter from the Dark Lord, who unexpectedly gasped and brought his hands to his chest as if he had just taken a spear to the heart. Phoca Soot’s lekku shot straight out from the sides of his head as if he were being electrocuted, and he collapsed to his knees in obvious agony, his breath caught in his throat and blood vessels in his head-tails beginning to rupture. His eyes glazed over and his red skin began to pale; then his arms flew back from his chest as if in an act of desperate supplication, and he tipped backward, the left side of his head slamming hard against the blood-slicked floor. ”

    ———–
    Moving with preternatural speed and blocking/deflecting blaster bolts, also casually tossing aside an adult officer
    ” Vader was forty meters from her. He stood up straight, towering over the crew near him. He was looking right at her, his lightsaber held at his side, and she could feel the weight of his regard pressing against her like a punch. He exploded into motion, moving toward her at preternatural speed, his strides devouring the deck space between them. Crew scrambled out of the way at his approach, his dark form knifing through them.

    She raised her blasters and took aim, shooting as fast as she could pull the triggers, scribing the air between them with lines of red energy. Vader didn’t slow his sprint and his lightsaber was a blur as he came on, deflecting her shots in all directions. A few came back at her. One hit the pallet and sent tools skittering along the deck. Another scorched the bulkhead beside her, but still she fired.

    The crew in the corridor panicked, scrambling in all directions. An officer got in Vader’s way, slowing his approach for a moment, and Vader tossed him aside with his free hand as if the man weighed no more than a child.

    Isval! Eshgo said from behind her.

    Vader was twenty meters and closing.

    She was shouting, firing, but her shots could not get past the line of his lightsaber. She didn’t understand how it was possible, until her own words came back to her: Vader was not a man. ”
    — Lords Of The Sith
    ———
    deflecting dozens of blaster shots casually while apparently distracted
    ” She looked up, saw the V-wings turning sharply to come back in on an attack vector. They must have found something along the top of the quarry at which to shoot.

    Movement outside the ship caught her eye, and when she saw the source, it caught her breath.

    Lord Vader strode heedlessly through the crossfire, cape flowing out behind him, his lightsaber cutting the air before him, deflecting dozens of blaster shots back at the Twi’leks, killing one, another, another. He did it all almost casually, as though his mind was on other things. The black lenses of his helmet were fixed upward, at the rim of the quarry. ”
    — Lords Of The Sith
    ——————
    moving preternaturally fast again
    ” As Mors watched, Vader exploded into motion, moving at a preternatural speed that left her mouth hanging open stupidly. Vader was heading directly for the side of the quarry, which was too steep for an ordinary man to scale. ”
    — Lords Of The Sith

    deflecting still more blaster bolts so quickly his saber turns the air red in front of them, while climbing an incline so steep no ordinary man could do it.
    ” Those V-wings are coming back around, Goll said, firing down into the quarry at Vader, who was sprinting across the quarry’s floor, coming on so fast that Cham would not have believed it had he not seen it. Isval had both pistols out and aimed, firing red lines at Vader. Cham was shooting as fast as he could, too, but Vader’s blade was faster, deflecting every shot, sending fully half of them back at Isval and Cham and Goll, causing them to duck and cover.

    When Vader reached the steep-walled side of the quarry he bounded up, caught a hold on some protuberance or other, crouched, and bounded up again.

    That’s impossible, Goll muttered, but he kept firing.

    Isval knew better. She’d seen what Vader could do. Nothing he did surprised her.

    And now he was coming for them.

    They kept firing, leaning out over the lip of the quarry to fire down the steep side, but Vader’s lightsaber turned the air red before him and none of their shots so much as touched him. He leapt from one spot to the next, ascending, pausing only for a moment upon landing to tense before leaping again and ascending farther.

    @Jake
    Thanks for those, that’s going to be useful on another site.

    Iron Man has an anti-magic field on his armor right? Or something like that? This doesn’t immediately end in Force-Shenanigans?

  10. Mea quidem sententia November 11, 2015 at 9:44 am -      #10

    @Rookie
    Iron Man’s armor has held up pretty well against numerous forces. Lightning apparently will charge up his suit. He’s taken an artillery shell and was still functional. His armor held up well against bullets from jets. He was also caught in some turbine and while that messed up his armor, it was still functional. I’m sure Iron Man could also take down an AT-AT.

    @Jake_Uzumaki
    I don’t know if there’s anything special about a royal guard in terms of defense, but the blast vaporized him. Average human male height is 5’6″. Hamwi’s method would mean a man of this height should have an optimal weight of 142 lb. (64.4101 kg.) Humans are 60% water.

    According to Dr. Jeffrey Utz, Neuroscience, pediatrics, Allegheny University, different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of water. Babies have the most, being born at about 78%. By one year of age, that amount drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water.

    18% of a human body should be made up of carbon.

    64.4101 kg. * 60% = 38.64606 kg.
    64.4101 kg. * 18% = 11.593818 kg.

    Heat of vaporization for water is 2.257 * 10^6 J/kg

    38.64606 kg. * 2.257 * 10^6 J/kg = 87,224,157.42 J

    Heat of vaporization for carbon is 2.9624 * 10^7 J/kg.

    11.593818 kg. * 2.9624 * 10^7 J/kg. = 343,455,264.432 J.

    87,224,157.42 J + 343,455,264.432 J = 430,679,421.852 J, or 430.68 MJ.

    So that’s how much energy is needed to push Darth Vader backwards based on the fact that a royal guard was vaporized by this same energy. There’s also enough heat generated from that for him to feel it through his glove.

    There’s a mention of the ground being churned. This means that the ground boiled. I’m not sure what the ground is made of, though.

    Even if we worked with 200 PW, that wouldn’t tell us much. The Lawrence Livermore’s Nova laser has a power output of 1.25 PW, but only generated 600 J for lasting only half a picosecond. Iron Man’s would have to last less than a second, else he would be producing 200 PJ of energy, I can’t say I’d know how much heat that would generate, but yeah. 1 nanosecond would generate 200 MJ.

    @Mea quidem sententia
    “why would vader do that”

    cause he probably sees tony as not much a threat to him and cause he just wants to end the battle quickly.

    “What’s his MO?”

    define MO,there are many uses for that abbreviation

    there is a really high chance he would use force choke from the get-go since he’ll probably see tony as nothing but fodder(yeah I know he’s a really tough guy but to vader he might not seem much of a threat) and would probably decide that he’s not worth his time,unless tony is able to impress vader in some way before getting force choked.

    well he did force choke someone in outer space which he couldn’t even see so I think he could.

    well he did force choke someone in outer space which he couldn’t even see so I think he could.

    Force choking someone while in a passive environment and not being actively attacked by a supersonic missle/laser spamming dude is completely different than being attacked by that same dude and having to choke him with your mind, while being actively attacked.

    So I’ll ask again, can Vader choke someone while being actively attacked from potentially multiple different directions and at high speeds?

    “Force choking someone while in a passive environment and not being actively attacked by a supersonic missle/laser spamming dude is completely different than being attacked by that same dude and having to choke him with your mind, while being actively attacked.”

    I don’t think it matters if vader is in a passive environment or not(correct me if I’m wrong),the fact that he was able to force choke someone a few seconds after he had said his first sentence and even though he had no idea where the person was is already impressive in it’s own way,and I don’t see any reason why vader won’t be able to do it while under fire.

    Vader could require concentration. He might need to be able to pinpoint his location. There is a large enough difference to make it necessary to compare.

    well couldn’t vader just hide behind something and do it? endor is a really big place and it’s likely that they might end up loosing each other quite a lot and in the image it didn’t seem like vader had to concentrate a lot in order to kill that person.Other than this I don’t really have much to say on the topic and I’ll just wait until someone brings in some new info on vader.

    Crushing his heart (see post 6) would likely be much faster than force choking Tony. Not sure if he can do it in combat reliably I’ll look back through his solo series.

    And while I don’t know how the laser is going to interact he has redirected missiles before in a combat situation (post 8) granted there were fewer and they were larger than the tiny macross thing Tony does but its a precedent of sorts I suppose.

    “I don’t know if there’s anything special about a royal guard in terms of defense, but the blast vaporized him”

    They have full body/mostly full body armor similar to Storm Troopers but supposed to be higher end, so it vaporized that as well though it likely doesn’t increase the calc much.

    “Thanks for those, that’s going to be useful on another site.”

    “I don’t know if there’s anything special about a royal guard in terms of defense, but the blast vaporized him”

    Realistically, the way the scene is worded it does not have to be literal vaporization; atomization could do the same thing visually well enough. It is not a formal report with requirements for scientific accuracy, it is physical description.

    The ground churning reference does indicate that there is probably melting going on but it does not mean that it left pools of boiling glass either. The visual evidence from earlier movies and the Rebels cartoon make it likely that it heats and charges small divots that pop and cause the churning effect.

    Present day aircraft cannons like the one mounted on the A-10 could be described the same way as the fighter guns in the excerpt (which does not mean they are not powerful in their own right, the Warthog’s gun tears up heavy armored vehicles well enough).

    The header illustration is the hulkbuster oversuit; does that mean that Stark has Veronica in this battle? The spares would make a difference in the outcome if Vader has to take him on physically instead of choking or whatever.

    Speaking of choking and heart squeezing, I am fairly sure that Vader would have to know he is facing a human in a suit to do that and even though Stark tends to talk a lot (though not always on outside speakers) and does not sound like a droid Vader has faced Grevious and may assume that Iron Man is a similar brain-in-a-bot cyborg as well. In a non-combat situation where he could concentrate he might be able to sense the situation in the force but paying attention to the tactical messages from the force instead he would have to rely on guesses and hunches and probably would not have enough connection to pull unseen internal attacks.

    In the old movies and so far in the Rebels cartoon Vader seems to need some kind of contact with the victim, a hologram, vidscreen, or apparently in one case an audio radio connection in order to direct an attack like that. It seems likely that he also needs to know something about the physiology of the victim and a lot of things in Star Wars sound human even when they are not and if Stark does not open both his helmet and the hulkbuster canopy at the same time Vader would not know for sure what he was facing and would have to resort to physical combat like lightsaber and force push/slam or lightning.

    They could have meant atomization, as that seems to be used colloquially for atomization, which would be 2.99 GJ instead.

    I didn’t say anything about the ground becoming glass. It would seem quartz are the common mineral for the earth.

    K, so first set of scans all come from Iron Man 2: Public Identity. In this series of scans, IM lifts a copper, lifts a jet, tanks a barrage of missiles point blank and seems relatively unharmed, and lastly outpaces a missile. All these are MCU Iron Man.

    From Iron Man 3 Prelude. Lifts a car and slaps away an RPG, catches a gernade and lets it explode in his hand with no visual damage, tanks three point blank explosions, tanks more explosions pretty closely, flies away before the next shot can hit him, dodges the next blast while flying, more dodging, like lots of dodging, seriously he dodges a lot of stuff, shoots the ex wife missile while it’s a little outside of arms reach before it hits him again, does a Spartan IV ground pound and flips the tank, and lastly lifts the tank and flies it into the ocean.

    So, the armor allows it some pretty decent reaction feats, decent durability feats, good speed feats, and a few noteworthy strength feats.

    Iron-Man has not shown enough strength to resist Vader’s TK.

    How much strength is needed? The MCU armor has some pretty good strength feats, like fighting Hulk and Thor and lifting tanks and stuff.

    “How much strength is needed? The MCU armor has some pretty good strength feats, like fighting Hulk and Thor and lifting tanks and stuff.”

    Vader drags star freighters out of the sky and crushes AT-ATs. To resist Vader’s TK Iron Man strength would need to be atleast in the 100s of tons. Vader has also shown instant neck-snapping which Iron Man can’t defend against.

    “Survives direct fire from an AT-AT. All four weapons including the Turbolasers.”

    Did any of them even hit Vader? Seems like all the blaster bolts hit everywhere but where he was standing.
    =
    “Vader drags star freighters”

    Few questions on that: how heavy was the fighter, how fast was it going, how much force would be needed to perform the feat in the book? From the quote alone it doesn’t really give us much to work with on how much it would take to do that. I’m sure that someone can give us a bit more for context on those above questions though.

    It also didn’t seem like he was doing it casually and sounded like he was actually struggling to do it from the quote Jake provided.

    “He grunted with the effort, his respirator increasing his rate of breathing to account for the exertion.”
    =
    “crushes AT-ATs”

    What’s an AT=AT’s best physical durability feat in Disney canon? It’d give us a low ball figure of how much force he was using to crush it.
    =
    “Iron Man strength would need to be atleast in the 100s of tons.”

    Based on what? Vader’s two biggest feats presented so far really don’t give us an exact amount of force to work with.

    Although, the closest I could think of to that amount of strength would be these two:

    Ground pounding so hard that it lifts the tank and the people around it,

    i.imgur.com/5F6KvGM.jpg

    Chucks the tank from the scan above into the ocean.

    i.imgur.com/nMvqUDv.jpg

    Granted, we get a similar problem of not knowing how heavy the tank was, but I’m sure someone can calc it. We have smartys here on the Pile. Other than that, nothing comes to mind for strength feats for IM besides catching/throwing/lifting cars.
    =
    “Vader has also shown instant neck-snapping which Iron Man can’t defend against.”

    Don’t recall him ever using that in combat. Also, I’d think tanking blows from Thor among others would prove to be useful for that. Would falling from cloud level and caught by the Hulk potentially be something that could be usable against that? I mean, wouldn’t falling at terminal velocity and then suddenly get changed from going straight down to moving horizontally change your acceleration dramatically and should kill you?

    I don’t know if that made sense or not….

    next we hear of it is the commander of the garrison who sent the small army saying it went about as well as you’d expect.

    And not really combat useful but he was able to jurry rig his TIE’s blaster array into a turret.

    “Did any of them even hit Vader? Seems like all the blaster bolts hit everywhere but where he was standing.”

    True, but those are artillery pieces going off right beside him, still impressive.

    “What’s an AT=AT’s best physical durability feat in Disney canon? It’d give us a low ball figure of how much force he was using to crush it.”

    Hard to say without a bit of power scaling. So in the Clone Wars a group of
    AT-TE’s were capable of badly damaging an unshielded banking clan frigate.
    But in a recent episode of Rebels an AT-TE’s guns were useless against an
    AT-AT. Leaving the veteran clones somewhat in awe of its armor.
