    The Feats are just one layer that show Supermans increasing powerlevel though, his fights with opponents are another and one that i have also pointed out particularly with his gradual overtaking of Darkseid and Daxamites.
    It's like I said - if all superman had as a highend feat was the moon moving thing back in JLA 56 we would not be having this discussion probobly. One highend feat from ages ago does not a Planetary level powerhouse make, it takes the frequency of them to convince.
    But as i've repeatedly pointed out Superman (and other DCUers) have been jacked up in terms of power to such a degree I just don't necessarilly see a means of comparison anymore to MU toptier.
    If this was oldschool Pre-DoS superman it would be a level playing field pretty much but just these last two or three years alone DC have unequivocally laid down the law on Supermans powerlevel with feats that are rivalling the Silver Surfers level - not Namors or the Hulks!

    And that is purely my point. The gradual escalation in powerlevel over the last 15 years in undeniable.

Well, if that makes the foundation for your argumentation, it is stilted. In the same time, Superman was having troubles with the helicopter and we found out that he may be vulnerable to red lightning. Isn't that canon too?

Of course it's not. That's just a plot device. We all know that.

We also know that Superman didn't got a boost, really; the whole DC universe had a boost instead. Wonder Woman's pretty much invincible in her book. So is the Flash. And more. In fact the DCU stays the same; the relative power scale didn't change amongst the heroes (althought vilains like Darkseid paid the price); it is simply now despicted with a more sensationalistic rather than a realistic angle in comparison with the Byrne era, one that is conveniently more favorable to the heroes.

I'm actually surprised you don't see, or admit that.

    These sort of posters have become the whetstone I sharpen myself on. Every time out i get leaner, more determined and more precise in my arguments, though unfortunatly debating with the likes of Primetime is an instantly self defeating excercise, one i regrettably keep falling for. But if these kind won't leave it alone, so be it.

I fear you have painted yourself in a corner doing so, my friend. It's too bad, since you would be a much better poster otherwise, but it's your problem after all.
