| > Although, I don't see how the ground between Atlas and Hercules remains intact if they are literally pressing the mass of the universe. Kind of like the Spectre landing on the Moon and the Moon not shattering. People here invoke that all the time to prove that Spectre isn't all too heavy, and thus Superman and Wonder Woman carrying him isn't all too great a feat, but are not doing the same with Hercules' feat, which confounds me. |
I don't think the moon not cracking has anything to do with the problem with the spectre feat. Otherwise, those same people should have a problem with spiderman lifting a bus and not sinking in the street.
The problem with the spectre is that it said as heavy as "eternity". Added to the fact that both heroes couldn't seem to hold him.
So even if you take "eternity" to mean the weight of the universe, Hercules did it by himself and didn't drop it.

> Also, I find it odd that people are using this unprecedented feat to tier-up all the characters who have matched-up with Hercules, but do not do the same for Superman's peers when Superman executes an enormous, "ridiculous" feat. This also confounds me. Of course, if this feat tiers-up Marvel characters, then, to be fair, it does so for DC characters, too, by way of the Marvel/DC crossovers.
This is why fights are more important than feats.
