More agile and likely as strong......You clearly have no idea how insanely fast and strong Astartes are. I've always liked this quote from Know No Fear to really show just how fast an Astartes reactions are, nothing I've played or seen shows the Spartans to have even remotely comparable reflexes.
AWESOME!!!! KNOW NO FEAR lol what an epic call forgot never knew how awesome that line was till some one else spelt it out to me.

P.S pity about the result.

You and Vaz are part of these threads. There ALWAYS has to be one who says "I will kill the first _insert something_ I see if I see another one of these" and one who says "These threads are (always the same/just like the last one)"

Protoss119 What's also worth remembering is that Spartan IIs are fond of spawncamping with snipers, so if by some chance they do kill a Space Marine, they can just keep killing him every time he respawns until he ragequits.

I don't deny that, I'm just not interested in reading them. If you want to sight some, then do so, if you want to criticize my literary choices, then eat a dick pavlova.

In a training exercise (where his life was put on the line because of a jackass admiral wanting to truly test out their abilities and hopefully kill him in the process), John was able to briefly run at 105 km/h but tore his achilles tendon because it wasn't able to endure the stress.
Thanks DeathJester. That's not remotely ridiculous. It's also roughly equal to the speed of a Space Marine.

So tell me, what exactly is it you are trying to convey but are apparently confounded by, due to a lack on abstract processing?
The games depict Master Chiefs movement speeds a particular way (as I outlined in my last post). You say (and do not support) that the novels depict them differently. However, as you state earlier (as quoted by darkreever) the games are a higher canon. As you state now the books are only canon when they do not discredit the game. Therefore the movement speeds show in the game are accurate and canon, while those depicted in the books are not. "Abstract processing" has nothing to do with it. Logic does, which I think is why you are having trouble with it. I am here to assist thee my fellow... entity.

MontytheMighty Space marines have better stats in almost all departments

Given equal numbers and an even playing field, I see space marines stomping 9/10

darkreever No complaints from me, I find it to be completely hilarious.

Is that while they are also launching fire balls from their asses?

Seriously do you even read the "facts" (read that as bollacks) you post? A spartan who is what 8 foot tall if going to wield a thunderhawk which is over 26 meters long as a melee weapon?

That explains why a punch from a Spartan sends a grunt flying into outer atmosphere then...
