> Yes, this is clear, but it's not as if the universe was falling like the Spectre was. It also does not address how it could be a universal feat given that the Earth didn't crack (or how it could be a planetary feat, even).

But why would the Earth crack? Thats only if real world physics are into play. In the fictional realms, depending the genre, real world physics wont matter. In fact, how do you show someone as actually that strong, if everything crumbles beneath him?

In this land, if you are strong enougth, nothing happens. Not unless its the porpuse of the writer to happen. The ground doesnt fall just because Superman is stopping a falling building, and it should.

Just my two cents.

> As for Superman and Wonder Woman slowing Spectre's fall, I don't recall that being the case, but it's been years since I read it, so I could be mistaken.

I belive its implied. They still failed the stop the fall on itself, but the narration makes it seem that they managed to slow it down, somewhat.
