Its a super hero cliche that by sitting out your attacks it becomes stronger

But do they do that in comics? I've never seen that.

Anime, on the other hand...

Thanks Edgey, this will get my point across to people that have me on ignore

Its stupid how someone like Captain America calls his attacks... I guess its okay for Strange though, because of his magic.

I actually thought about this topic because of his topic. I'm genuinely curious.

In martial arts you scream in order to bring out strength and energy towards your attack...though it sound silly it actually works that way. I believe its something to do with how your muscles tense when you scream...so instead of having comic books and manga attacks be all "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" we have it like "Bionic AAAAARM!" and other stuff.

For some characters that doesn`t really make sense, but it turned out to be quite popular with the fans...and it actually makes sense with Dr Strange and Dormammu, as many of their magic attacks require you to say an incantation or the name of an entity.
You are trying to understand madness with logic. This is not unlike searching for darkness with a torch.

Yeah but look at a game like Street FIghter x Tekken (be patient, not bashing this game). I think that they nailed the lines for the Tekken side. They don't scream the names of their moves, they use screams, short lines and grunts in their specials for the most part. The Marvel cast should really be like that.

Depends.

I don't think Cap sounds silly when he yells some of his attack names, since they're not literally attack names. When he shouts Final Justice or Stars and Stripes he sounds like he speaks in a metaphorical manner, which adds some drama.
However, he does sound silly when he yells the Hyper versions.
