Reply Subj: I consider everything feats -- fights, lifts, etc.

> It all matters equally to me, and I would consider it all if asked to research and write a character. I'd also look at "common depictions," i.e., the ballpark in which a character typicaly operates. I weigh those as much as high, mid, and low end showings; as well as failed feats, struggled feats, and easily achieved feats.
> The example I like to give is this: Superman is seen benching the composite mass of a billion multiverses. But, for the next 20 or however many years, is never seen lifting more than a single twenty pound bags of flour each month. He doesn't struggle with them, or comment that they are heavy. He handles them just fine. I still wouldn't characterize him as a billion multiverses-level dude, despite having no struggles or failures, as it's just not the ballpark he usually plays in. It's not his common depiction, in other words, so I wouldn't go by it.

In which issue Superman benched the composite mass of a billion multiverses????
