This is why despite the fact that EVERYONE knows that was a fan voted fight (especially the people who keep referring and using this fight as a basis for their arguments)people STILL act as though this battle was canon. What I'd like to know is....WHY?

Because YOU wouldn't believe it otherwise. Anything other than a Superman victory would constitute a poorly written story. According to YOU. I see.

Superman doesn't fight that way and just because certain of you want him to DOES NOT mean that when he doesn't, it's a poorly written story.
> > >
> >
> > IT's a FACT that he can fight like that. I can't help it. People scream when MM forget to use his intangibility and I agree that it is bad. No excuse. Also Superman could simply fly above hulk and zap him until he fall. The only way hulk can win is if we throw a red carpet for hulk and glue superman on the ground. Like that yeah hulk would eventualy win. otherwise I would have to be really dumb not to find a way to remove him. Even if he went on a rage for hours and hours and came to be billions of time stronger and impervious than superman he would still not fly and would still weight half a ton... so he could be disposed of to a place he would chill out litteraly.

> > > Quite frankly, there ARE no "poorly written" or "well written" stories. It's all a matter of point of view. You say a well written story constitutes Superman speed jackin' Hulk or anybody else for that matter, but SOMEONE else could say a well written story is that Superman didn't realize how tough the Hulk was and when he finally did give Hulk his due, it was too late! Hulk was now too impervious to harm(a legitimate aspect of his power)for ANYTHING Supes could do to affect him. Now YOU may find that to be bullcrap, but the next fan(who has every right to believe what he/she wants to believe same as you)may think this is the best written story in the history of literature. Oh and trying to use the "rabid fan" excuse is weak, because the same could be said in the other direction.
> > >

And i never said the hulk can't be stronger than superman... eventualy. It's not a question of strengh only its a question of having so much more than the other to win. What seam so unreasonnable?

I agree.

> > Yeah you have to hope for a merciless hulk and a naive superman who would not be able to fly away when he realised that he messed up... might work.

> But don't you see? YOU just came up with a "poorly written" result! Superman would NEVER fly away even if he knew the odds were against him. By trying to downplay my argument, you merely proved my point for me.

If kal can't do anything about hulk he will have to change strategy somehow. The guy is not dense. He will take his leave if the hulk is only threatening rocks or take hulk elsewhere if others are in dangers but the idea remain it would be dumb for him to continue the punching routine if its doing nothing. That would be weird to persist with a loosing approach. The only way to force him to do this would be to use innocent bystanders. That could work... but in the grand canyon with the universe at stakes ? Never!

You mean like he did with Doomsday? And we all know how THAT turned out. That must have been bad writing.
