    I just finished seeing the movie in theaters and this brought up a few questions. I believe someone told me the movie was canon and if so:
    1) Holy hell Deku can now dodge bullets and is (ever so slightly below) on par with AM speed-wise? (Can be conjoined with question 4)
    2) The Twin Punches: So AM needed another 10% or was his punch 100% and Deku's 100% both going Plus Ultra? Because I thought even Deku's 100% was not supposed to be Prime AM's 100% and it was supposed to scale to that of Deku's body since he is a new student? So I'm asking of Deku contributed 10% while AM did all the "heavy lifting" doing 90% of the power or if they were supposed to be portrayed as doing equal amounts in their punch.
    3) Why doesn't Melissa make more Gauntlets for Deku or ANYONE make Gauntlets like that?
    4) Did the Gauntlets make him tap into 100% for his full body, ergo why he was so fast this movie, or was it just to make him use his punch at 100%?
    5) Is I-Island scientists the same level as the Support specialists/team from UA? Because it seemed like they were doing more advanced technology but then again why does UA not specifically get Melissa or David to do all their suits and make equipment for them?


    A) This isn't really a question BUT how do all the students see Deku going, "DETROIT SMASH!" right next to AM going "CALIFORNIA SMASH!" and not put two and two together? I mean Melissa did it and she only saw Deku for 1 day.
    B) Baku/Kiri is such a well made bro relationship

    6) If Mei Hatsume is so smart why didn't she join the I-Scientists if she likes making gadgets so much? She seems way more interested and capable than Melissa. (Forgot to add a sub question to 5)

    I don't read the manga and I usually watch the episodes twice but I'm not too analytical when it comes to viewing anime so I don't know if this has been expanded upon but two things I thought were cool/interesting and expanded upon the lore of MHA
    1) In the movie we understand that Japan has 6% crime rate whereas everywhere else has 20%+. This tells me that USA sucks ass in the Hero department but it also answers the questions that many people had such as:
    >Are there heroes outside of Japan?
    >What is happening in America/The World crime wise?
    >Do other countries/nations have Quirks or just Japan?
    2) Another thing that came up was AM being a Japanese unknown hero while American Heroes didn't even know who he was. This means that the influence from nation to nation only goes so far. Sort of how like a really popular KPOP group will be largely unknown in America and vice versa. This brings up my own questions then:
    >Do Heroes not travel at all?
    >How was AM allowed to Hero in America or are provesional licenses worldwide?
    >If you are in too much heat by villains can't you just nation hop and start anew somewhere else?
    <Same with villains?
    *The two above questions also address that if someone is a pretty popular super hero but then they start having trouble it is probably because people have adapted to them and know their Quirks weaknesses. If they go somewhere else they can be an unknown Hero again and be really good at catching bad guys again
    >I'm assuming there is no international or worldwide headquarters of Hero-ing like in OPM or Marvel comics?


    A few things I thought were odd now that I think about it
    -Why aren't those robots, or AT LEAST the binding rope, employed elsewhere? They were even able to suppress AM so that is really fucking handy rope!
    -The Government shut down the funding and research for the amplifier probably due to they have AM and didn't see the need for such technology. Now that AM is dead/gone I wonder if the government is trying to replicate such endeavors considering it should work on AM still since he can still go to muscular form. Hell, even an amplified Endeavor would fucking rule. Imagine an amplified EraserHead! He could probably erase Quirks altogether OR have a set distance where if you are, say 100 meters, near Aizawa then your Quirk would be nullified.
    Edit: So yeah I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and give it an 8 out of 10 like the mod did. It expanded a lot of what I was curious about.
    -1 for feeling like a rushed ending (credits/post credits scenes dont count)
    -1 for actually leaving a lot of things open-ended/leaving questions unanswered or breaking lore like Deku's speed
