> 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 actually do agre to an extent. This kind of feats arent the top tier character standart level. How could it be? They would bust anything.

But they sure add up as "once upon a time he *also* did this and that" if compared with someone else who never did. Thats always an edge in debates.
