Hyperbole =
A noun,
1. obvious and intentional exaggeration.
2. an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”


Canon =
A noun,
1. A body of rules, principles, or standards accepted as axiomatic and universally binding, absolute truth.


"stronger than Hercules" still means "stronger than Hercules"

It's canon.

You take your hyperbole, I'll stick with DC's canon every day of the week.
