> First the Visor has to LOWER for the Destroyer to fire it's Disintigrator Beam. The Beam isn't fired from his "eyes" or whatever but is built up and then channeled through the fork shaped visor. So that scene in the Hulk comic is wrong, all the Hulk would be doing is helping the Destroyer fire it's beam. I guess it was the only way the Hulk could win and the writer kinda "forgot" the actual facts of how the Destroyer fires it's beam.

In this scan we can clearly see the Visor being "lowered" which as you say (going by your expertise) is to allow the energy in the beam to build up. Then Cap exclaims: "he is opening the visor !". Then we see Thor getting blasted by the Disintegration beam. Unfortunately we just see the back of the Destroyer while he fires so we can't really tell if the Visor was actually open or not during firing. Logically then we just have to go by the word of the person who actually witnessed it... meaning Cap.
The fact is that unless this writer "kinda forgot" the facts too... PAD has either followed continuity as he should or else the Visor business has now been retconned to be always open on firing of the Disintegration beam.

> Oh and I say the Destroyer takes the JLA.
