    Given what's happened recently in the manga with Midoriya seeing the past between All For One and his brother, I'm curious if we'll ever get a flashback or a Midoriya seeing a vision of All Might and All For One's original fight, the one that crippled them both for years to come. There's probably no real NEED to see it, given we did get to see their last and arguably most important fight, but it could still be pretty cool, especially if there is a story-based reason why Midoriya is seeing it or why we the audience are getting a flashback to it.

    It'd be cool to see what other style of quirks AFO was using. Gran torino even said they were completely different than the raw power approach he took the second round.

    I honestly don't think we will because the hype is too strong and whatever we get will 99% be a letdown. It is probably also too hard to think of a battle about AM in his prime. I figure it is akin to something like Hago and his brother vs Kaguya. It will be referenced and maybe have a one shot panel to show silhouettes but we will never see an actual 100% battle.
    I'm sure it will also be hard to specifically write a battle out of nowhere. MHA is really good at setting up spaces and doing pre-battle things that a fight randomly out of nowhere wouldn't really bode to well for me imho. If anything I'd like a flashback arc I guess of sorts.

    Then you get into the scaling territory where anything we see Prime AM doing then a lot of people will find/try to find inconsistencies in his power sort of how Minato and Tobirama happened during the War Arc then you go back to fights when they were alive.

    Another thing I believe, and as anime only I may be wrong, is that this is Deku's manga and not AM's per se. I don't really see them trying to go back in time for a whole lot other than a few panels or references. This is Deku's time to shine and the further we go to Deku being a powerhouse I just don't seem them doing the focus on AM again. Maybe Deku's powers and the previous holders but certainly that isn't AM exclusive. Sort of how Boruto is definitely Boruto's manga and there aren't too many talks or chapters all about Naruto and his past completely outshining his son. I don't think everything shifting to AM will happen because it leaves Deku in the dust.

    The imagery of AFO's face being smashed to a pulp by an All Might with his entrails dangling out would be pretty metal to see drawn by Horikoshi. But, I dunno, you see what these guys did to a city when they were way past their primes and you try to imagine what cataclysmic damage they were doing in their primes, and yeah. I think this is one of those things best left to the imagination. That intangibility of possibilities gives it a mythic and romantic quality.

    I'm cool with either, but I guess I'd prefer if it remained unexplored.

    All Might's first fight against All For One happened just a couple years before the present timeline. He already was past his prime.

    But yeah, I do want to see young All Might unleashing all his power. He must've been a God back then.
