Despoa made a change to the MarvelCinematicUniverse section of the page regarding the INSIGHT Helicarriers as seen in \\\'\\\'Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier\\\'\\\'. In the film, we\\\'re told that the Helicarriers can \\\"scratch off\\\" people \\\"a few million at a time\\\". We\\\'re never shown exactly how many maximum targets they can kill at once, but they\\\'re largely presented as being able to cause a massive human die-back as needed. We never see the full extent of what they\\\'re able to do, but they are presented as being able to \\\"hold a gun to every person on Earth\\\" and allowing them to activate is a threat equal to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

Despoa\\\'s argument for removing the Helicarriers from Type 5 is that they are not demonstrated to cause damage to a planet itself--just people. However, \\\'\\\'nothing\\\'\\\' in the description for Type 5 says anything about damaging a planet. Just \\\"affecting a world positively or negatively\\\". Up to this point, we\\\'ve been using Type 5 as a loose class for any power levels that are capable of causing any devastating changes to \\\"a world\\\", whereas a world can mean a stable dimension or setting, including a planet, or the majority of their population. For example, a PlagueMaster capable of causing a global pandemic would still be a Type 5, although his powers likely wouldn\\\'t harm the actual planet itself.

Restricting Type 5 to EarthShatteringKabooom or ColonyDrop-type abilities seems to me like splitting a hair that doesn\\\'t need to be split.
