Cool. Thanks for responding!
"Strength and power are really nothing more than expressions of force, and are shown in different ways. Some characters can only use that force physically and others, mentally and still others use different types of energy blasts. How much 'strength' or 'power' there is being said force is what counts. Just because someone can shoot out beams of pure energy, it does not necessarily make them more powerful or the energy beam stronger than a physical blow. "
I think strength is more a subset of power. Power is being able to do something in a myriad of ways, or being able to exert a desired affect without having physical contact.
Hindsight is more powerful than the gamma force. (heh) I guess what I was going for with the frankenstein reference is I like the ugly, brutish character that you can really feel for. I dunno, I don't really feel bad for the Hulk. Sure, Bruce had it tough, but no worse than some poor kid from a third world country. The hulk can pretty much do anything. He's almost too "powerful" to feel bad for, if that makes sense...
Yeah, he's been fighting cosmics for a long time. It's hard to find a rogues gallery for something that tough on earth, but I liked the idea that he was basically an earth born/bred creature. I don't like cosmic hulk. (This is really opinionated though... it's like that friday the 13th movie, Jason X, Jason in Space! Seems lame to me.)
"Please enlighten me?"
IMHO skyfathers are the top of their pantheon, imbued with the collective "godforce" of that pantheon in addition to their own innate godly powers. Their wisdom of how to use this power, while helpful, isn't THAT much of a factor. The "godforce" makes them uber.
Example 1: Look at herc. Not the sharpest tac. He's made arguable the peak skyfather, and now is able to stop time, as well as imbue a portion of his powers into other ppl.
Example 2: could be way back when Odin gave a portion of his Odinpower to heimdall. Thor through his hammer at the recently powered up heimdall and it bounced off him, which resulted in heimdall saying something along the lines of "You're power pales before mine". This is after only recently being given the power.
Basically, if you watch DBZ, skyfather power is like going from a regular saiyan to a Super saiyan 3. It's just a lot more power going through you. That's a simplified way of how I look at it, anyways.
"Please explain how Hulk is a smarter Doomsday."
Again, I must tap into the power of hindsight and say what I meant... it seems to me, the way he's currently being written, the hulk can pretty much adapt to anything, heal instantly (though I guess his throat was cut last ish... didn't read), and do whatever. Clearly he preceded doomsday, I was only refering to his adaption and healing factor.
Maybe I have a grudge against hulk on some level since Thor's been my favorite character for quite awhile. Though Commissioner Gordon is slowly creeping up there. He's just a good guy.
