So far, thats exactly what it is.

People are reading way much into this. Its an absurd feat very much in the vein of pre crisis ones. In fact, its the one that set that kind of standart.

It doesnt make Hercules automatically stronger than everyone else, but it sure makes him a peer of people that usually wer talking how "the Marvel version doesnt have the Myth version feats".

The Myth versionis still the strongest and more skilled of the two, but the gap just closed in.
