> But answer me this - Don't you think a Superman/Thor fight should of lasted longer? >
We didn't actually say how long it lasted -- I figure the battle took a while.
>> I believe both of them should of traded many blows, then we saw a winner. Am I safe in assuming this did not happen because you didn't want half the issue with just them fighting?>
I think they did trade many blows -- but just as we jumped around in that fight and showed many bits of many individual battles, we didn't see every single blow in the Thor/Superman brawl.
>> I also must ask - why no extensive use of Mjolnir? He summoned a storm. Why no lighting? Just seems like it would make sense for him to do.>
When he's fighting someone like Hercules or the Hulk, he doesn't usually bring down lightning to smite them -- he takes 'em on head to head. I expect if the fight had continued, he'd have gotten to other strategies (as would Superman, of course).
> Quasar should take Wonder Woman.>
And given more time, he might. But one of his teammates pulled a surprise move. This is a team book, after all.
>> Black Panther would RAPE Blue Beetle. >>
On the other hand, the last we see of them fighting is the Panther kicking the Bettle in the chops, so it seems like he's doing fine.
> You commented how you didn't feel it was as lopsided in another post. Um....it was. I ask you this also - do you feel DC is more powerful? >
I think DC is a company.
> Or just that this particular JLA team beats that particular Avengers team? >
I think a classic JLA lineup (i.e., the mainline DC heroes) is more powerful, on average, than a classic Avengers lineup (many of the mainline Marvel heroes). As noted, this is something fans have been commenting on for years.
I don't think that means either company is "better" -- back when I was in high school, the general feeling among my crowd was that Marvel had the better comics specifically because the DC characters were too powerful. Ultimately, I think the question that matters is which characters and stories are more interesting -- and I think the Avengers compete just fine on that score.
> Finally - did you write Hercules as still lacking his full power/immortality or has he somehow gained all his power back from Zeus? >
As noted earlier, I don't think he's gotten his full power back. But since Wonder Woman is as strong as the DCU's Hercules and faster, I think she can do what she did. But neither of their battles was conclusive -- she did okay against him in Asgard, he seemed to be doing okay against her in the Savage Land.
> This was worse than Red Tornado beatign on Thor - a guy who controls the storms better than anyone there. >
The Red Tornado didn't "beat on" Thor -- have you read the book?
> Can you give soem feedback and maybe some very basic info if this will continue? (this being DC domination over Marvel in unrealistic fashion)
I don't tell people what's coming up -- I'd rather they read it for themselves.
And since I don't think the story so far has been "unrealistic" (in superhero terms, anyway), asking me if it'll continue to be something I don't think it is a "When did you stop beating your wife?" question.
Sorry you didn't care for it, in any case.
