> But neither of us think the spectre feat is "debunked" because the moon didn't crack. With that kind of logic NO strength feat is valid.

Allow me to step in and agree here. Most of us simply joke about the narration, because the Moon didnt cracked. But that part with time became mostly a mock, we dont relly care on itself.

The actual reason the feat is mostly debunked and end up being mocked, started out when someone tried to pass it on as "Superman and Wonder Woman suceeded in stopping the Spectre fall- and read how much he weights!"

Thats the key part. They didnt. They likely slow it down, but they didnt. And thats where most of the argument ensues. If we really took seriously the Moon funny part, we would have to debunk every single feat of this, no matter wich character. "The Earth didnt cracked. Between matter and Anti-matter? The planet should have dissapeared!"

Now, i do belive some people likely do take seriously the Moon bit, but then again if they do, they have to be consistant and debunk everything else. But like i said, that was never the key part of the argument.
