[Spoiler] Question/discussion about Epic powers and weaknesses at the end of the trilogy


Recommended Posts

The weaknesses were inherently tied to Calamity's corruption(/presence), because when an Epic faces their fear, they also drive back the darkness, which we know was because of Calamity and his contempt for humanity (and fear/startlement of the physical world). Now that Calamity is gone (or in the case of the otherverse already left a long time ago) does that also imply that the Epics no longer have weaknesses? Does that mean Megan literally can't die and David is literally invincible to all physical damage?

Is this why Obliteration is still wreaking havoc in the otherverse even though they have an actual Superman expy helping them out, because he can't be killed since he just teleports forever?

I don't think the weaknesses were tied to the corruption. Instead, I think that when an Epic faces their fear in order to save somebody, they take the power for themselves because they've established that Calamity's thinking is wrong.

Also, weaknesses still have power and can be used to kill the epics, they just are weaker after you faced/drove out the darkness. Personally, I think that the weakness is tied directly to the ability to have powers, so you have to have a weakness to have the powers(to make it not completely op)
