Quote:Whilst we're on Superman's non-planet moving showings, here's my personal favourite - an all-out Supes not just struggling with but flat-out failing to lift and being pushed down by a 2-ton (!!!) pummel block.
With apologies to our more reasonable superfans i have to say that i loooooooove this. Superman does seem to have less brick/snake moments if due to tighter editorial protection or fans not sharing some of his less flattering moments from more obscure books but glad to see this one made it out into the world at large. Good thing for Superman its not part of an "undeniable trend" or anything. Still its always nice to have "provenance"!
Quote:I can guarantee you now that not anywhere in his entire continuity will you find the Hulk flat-out failing an attempted strength feat in this manner.
Quote:Don't ever let anyone convince you Superman isn't as inconsistent as everybody else. He has ridiculous low showings too and this is just one of many. Not to say he isn't as strong as strong comes... just that there is two sides to every story, no matter what some would have you believe....
