    how does being made of a truth lasso give you psi defense aginst a psi that could destroy professor X's defense? I just think that is a reach for the stars.


It's a combination of many things.  Not simply tp resistant to obscene levels.  That's not the case at all.  However, it's not a "science"-ish reason, it's a mythical reason.  Nate can deal with people who have honed their mind, or have been gifted with talents via the mutant X-gene or mutated from some sort of radiation.  This is more of a magical/mythical origin for psi-defense.

That said, as mentioned, it's not "the ultimate in psi defense!!"  Not by a long shot.  However, how can Shaman X-Man deal with the levels of strength and speed that back up the psi resistance?  Professor Xavier just sits there and thinks an attack at you.  Shaman is able to grab that attack and stop it, then counter.  That's all well and good, but now he has to deal with an attacker who is not only requiring him to push his powers further, but is zooming in at near Flash speeds (Wonder Woman easily keeps up with Jessie Quick on multiple occasions) and delivering vicious attacks on his body (which requires his concentration to reform), blasting with highly charged EP, and even using speed tricks to spread the sand everywhere (she's done this style of attack with the Flash before).

I'm saying, more, that the tp is not an auto-win here.  It's going to be a good fight.  By bringing Sandman "into the mix" (so to say lol), it keeps me from getting an auto win with my speed and strength too!  \:\)

    Also yes you amalgam has huge strength and skill, but hitting sand will do you no good.


There are a lot of ways to deal with a body that easily disperses!  Especially when you can move at the speeds she does!

    What is your defense against Asgardian magic, for that matter how do you returne from a BFR.


The Aegis is a mystical metal that blocks magical bolts as well.  It's the perfect counter to any offensive magic used against her.

    My character wears the nega bands and that provides great energy defense and energy manipulation that on top of Shamans inate ablility even if she absorbs the kruch (or a piece) The Nega bands can drain her. 


The Ms Marvel aspect allows for the same draining.  This is why it's such a fun match!  Also, the Nega Bands are designed for best use by Kree physiology.

I just think that while you have the advantage in power, I have the advantage in skill, and I can better make use of the environment.  But I'm a little biased!  \:\)
