I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about arguing against the Spectre being a lunar mass, which many people here said he was not (rightfully so) as the Moon remained intact. Obviously, Spectre could not have weighed as much as the Moon. Again, I'm not talking about the objection to Spectre weighing as much as the universe, but as much as the Moon -- that point was argued, too, not just the universe weight idea.

> Thus one would ask for evidence of the weight of "eternity" and the moon supporting the weight of "eternity" is evidence of a certain weight limit. We don't need that type of evidence with holding up the literal universe because we have a concept of such weight and Earth supporting that weight is simply comicbook non-logic.

> It's just like planet pushing. The force needed to move one would propel a human right through it and if a human doesn't go right through it, one can assume that that human is not generating that kind of force and the planet must not weigh nearly what we would believe a planet to weigh. But we know that the planet was meant to have the typical mass of a planet, thus we conclude that we are dealing with comicbook non-logic.

Somethings are more absurd than others, I think we can agree. To suggest that the Spectre weighed as much as the Moon in the JLA issue, is ridiculous, as the Moon remained intact. If the comic said he was, I'd find it dubious (it's not astrophysics that puts the lie to it, but common sense). For the sake of battle scenarios, I'd take it as read, though.
