What is it?

Primarily the scene where he fights the Comedian at the beginning, he knocks him backwards in to a wall then closes the gap and intentionally remains standing up right and in his face using mostly his torso and hips to avoid strikes and set-up his counters. Uses his full body to power his strikes after swaying to avoid a counter attack and seems to attack his limbs a lot.

It seems a very effective style vs an unprepared or disoriented opponent, possibly after a knockdown or throw.

This type of banter and bullshit is not for this forum. Nor is your thread.

If you would simply follow the rules of each forum I think you would actually do OK here on Bullshido.

So again.

xenova,

Don't worry good buddy we are trying to get your ban sorted out.

Someone thought you were a spammer not a fucking moron. You get lots of chances to retard it up as much as you like really ... but few chances to spam.

Errors happen.

It's a fake made up Hollywood superhero style.

You're right my bad.

If it's so fake, how could they make a movie with it?

Next you'll be telling me ninja aren't real.

How stupid do I look?

Why Ozymandias' style is only the most effective-street-tested -closed-quarters style of combat known to man! WC of course, but you already knew that!

You're confused. That's what Robert Downey Jr. uses as Sherlock Holmes.
