> I agree. But, if the Moon not being nixed proves that Spectre in that book was not lunar mass (assume that's the case -- it's what I think), what does that logic say about Hercules' feat, seeing as how Earth supported Hercules as Hercules supported "the firmament" to you?

I think the context tells the story...

in the Soul War storyline we actually witness the feat -- and while the two heroes succeeded it was clearly shown that it was a struggle and NOT something that could be done indefinitely. It wasn't a story within a story and the writers intent was quite clear.

The Incredible Hercules issue in question is literally a re-telling of a myth -- with no way to discern how -- the Spectre is a tangible being -- space isn't something that can be held onto...


Thanks for the response. I didn't realize Hercules was retelling a myth. Anyway, I say, for the sake of debate here, just accept it as a bona fide universe feat for Hercules and add it to his "average." It's just one depiction out of many -- he is not commonly depicted at anywhere near that level -- so it doesn't amount to much. No more than Superman struggling to stop a falling gargoyle (Man of Steel 30) or Surfer being ko'd by a human-wielded crowbar (anyone have the referenced issue?), in my opinion.
