Eh, Dav isent some kind of nutso to just say things out of hand. I dont agree with some of his "Marvel versus DC" posts, but he usually brings at least points that can be used.
I am however curious as to why would anyone ever consider the DCU version of "Hercules" as being rated over the Marvel version, when he doesnt have a good track record to begin with (in both quality and quantity) or lifting feat record to even match up, let alone be set above.
His best lifting feat was rigth after the original crisis. And he made a point of saying his most talk about and famous feats wer "an exagerattion".
His best figthing feats are taking down the Sinestro clone in one panel, while WW didnt, battle the Doomsday clone with WW, and recently the added "Justice Society" #13, and the "Wonder Girl" mini, where he fared exceptionally well. Rarely exceptionally well, even.
Nothing else of note.
The only reason i have seen among a rare group of posters around several boards to call the DCU version as being above the other or even at equal terms, are:
- Posters like Defensor claiming that every "Hercules" version out there are exactly the same, just because they bear the same title. Nevermind that being a public domain character, he will always be subjected to plot, porpuse and interpretation (in WW`s case, being the "evil Man", in Marvel`s case, being a hero). Moreso, this happens even inside one company, let alone different publishing companies. as i showed on another thread, the same Hercules that showed up at Action Comics was not written the same way as the one showingup at WW. Sometines in regards to power levels, almost always in regards to porpuse and personality.
these kind of posters end up using the only one statement they can grab, ad naseum, even if ends up making no sense, within printed continuity. DC does not own any Hercules, other than the versions created on theyr stories.
- Posters like Bootch who belive that the DC big guns are automatically stronger by a considerable amount, either because of the pre crisis nostalgia, or because they publish more titles among the big guns, r becaue of statements such as "DC Earth is bigger", even when one notion does not bear any relation with the other.
Thats basically it.
