But I'm just not seeing how Torch can win. His max temp is 1,000,000. You can argue 2,000,000 but it's still doesn't matter. Compared to Yama's heat it's cool. Even if you want to argue that Yama isn't that hot, according to the official handbook, the Nova blast range is roughly 900 feet. I'd personally say its slightly bigger. But regardless that's a small distance for Yama to traverse in an instant. He could easily avoid it even if you are not convinced he could tank it or don a powerful kido barrier. Once Torch uses it, he's a virtual sitting duck.
