> First off, let's start with Hercules:
> Why is it that people who can believe in Greek deities and demons, half-human/half-animal creatures, struggle with believing that these beings can do unbelievable feats? Face it, the story was written, it now is in the records. Hercules braced the universe. Could others do it? Probably. Could Superman do it? Probably. But he didn't, Hercules did. Get over it!

The funny bit is that, Pak and Lente didnt even needed to write anything per se. Its centuries old. Its been retold again and again.

The description of the feat may vary. It usually walks around in two extremes. Either how the known universe composed of stars was held and that is usually depicted in some ancient art as well, while on the other side, some "only" talk about a dome around the Earth that was Ouranos. But even then its weigth of a cosmic body. Later on, it was depicted as to be holding the globe.

No matter how you slice it, its big.

> Next is Red Hulk:
> I hate Red Hulk but guess what? He kicked both Green Hulk's and Thor's butts. It happened. Don't believe it? If you can believe that there are humans being that get caught in nuclear explosions and become Hulks, if you believe in winged-hatted, hammer-throwing gods, then you need to stop complaining and deal with what was written. Get over it!

Yeah, nothing we can do here. Its Loeb and its printed.

And we all knew what would be coming there anyway.

> Now for Superman:
> I have to get over it. He is the protected one in the DC universe. He will always be atrong enough, fast enough, and smart enough. Why? Because he's Superman, that's why. And he probably does have a super sense of humor. Get over it!

He likely consults this board to get a laugh \:\)

> Lastly is Wonder Woman:
> Does it make sense that a being who can't take being shot can also trade punches with someone who can shatter planets? No. She should end up shattered like the planet. Does it make sense that a woman character is shown as being physically equal to the top physical male characters? No. Woman are, on average, substantially inferior to men. But it doesn't matter because this is a made up world. I mean, how many of us would even take the chance of blocking bullets with metal bracelets? So it happens and we have to accept it. Get over it!
