Subj: OMG, I was laughed off the board when I first came here months ago for using Herc's Holding up the Heavens for Atlas comment....

Reply Subj: Unless there is more to this than meets the eye, this is the biggest strength feat in all of comics, I think.

as only ONE of the most impressive demonstrations of physical might we've ever seen. Citing it as one of Herc's labors, but ohhhhhhhhhh nooooooooo, I was ridiculed and sent packing.

NOW, months later, someone actually puts it to pen and ink and it's LEGIT? Dang.

I got 3 words for all the laughers and scoffers from months ago:


> 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.
> 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.
> Personally, I don't subscribe to that point of view, but fair is fair.
