I'm not sure if Lain is even Universal. After having actually watched the series, she has no feats suggesting she's even close to that strong, sorry to say. Z wins this either way.
@LelouchCommandsYou: True, but Bugs can become the creator.
Creator>Omnipotent of a series.
Ex- Stan Lee>>>>>>>>>TOAA
TF allows him to do such a thing.
Also do you think Chakravartin is omnipotent?
But Deadpool >>>> Stan Lee (the writer) >>>>> TOAA >>>>>> Deadpool >>>>>>> Writer >>>>>>> TOAA >>>>>> Deadpool....
@takashichea: Thanks, Comic Vine and Anime Vice are a lot nicer than most other forums out there. I could rant on their hypocricy/double standards, hivemind mentality, rude attitude and countless other problems, but you no doubt know all about those sorts. I'll probably be utterly fed up with the place soon. It made me lose a lot of respect for their wiki.
@Dream: Sloth didn't have any personality whatsoever at all in 2003. They decided to drop any thought of Gluttony's character developing after Lust died and just have him sit in the corner. This is the opposite of having a unique personality, as they refused for his character to develop (it did after Lust died in the manga). Bradley and Greed in 2003 wern't nearly as deep or developed as they were in the manga/Brotherhood. Many important characters where killed off with very little explanation. Wrath seemed like a generic anime kid that you see too many of.
The 2003 version was painfully predictable - you could see everything coming from over 20 episodes away, and they made sure to answer all the questions with the most obvious, predictable answers and not ask any more. The manga/Brotherhood kept you wondering what was going to happen.
@Dream: The Hommunculus didn't seem like good villains in the first - they just followed Dante around like zombies, some didn't even have any personality at all. In brotherhood, they all had a unique personality, even if they were following Father.
Primal Monito may actually be the omnipotent of DC. It's debatable. Unless the writers decided to have an omnipotent for the mainstream universe and one for the Vertigo-that's-in-DC universe. Techniqually it's not likely, but imagination-wise you can have several omnipotents (particularly if they don't oppose each other).
What about the Lord of Nightmares of the Slayers franchise? She's also considered an arguable omnipotent being.
Created several infinite multiverses, the writer confirmed she/it is omnipotent, she beats up the writer himself with a shovel.
Brotherhood. The first series was poorly written with little care given to continuality and characters
You probably know of Watchmen's incredible fame and everything surrounding it; how its won awards and claimed to be the best graphic novel ever. So here's a question - what do you think the manga equivilent of Watchmen is? I would personally answer Akira; it's stood the test of time and inspired all around the world. Ozuma Tesuka I feel is more the equivilent of Will Eisner. What do you say?
(Um, this needs to be in the manga section please)
