Subj: so, the comic book is about us rushing to keep the bomb from detonating by...detonating it?

    I cannot help but notice you did not put the scans of that. Those you posted did not contain the explosion as it was going off. They said it was ready to go off, but were able to undue it in various ways.


Ok, here we go.

That was the bomb going off on its own and not setting off a chain reaction. Another went off when Surfer destroyed it.

    Thor's was going off and he contained the explosion. None of the others did that. Only Surfer possibly could have. The others would be dead if the bomb went off and had no way of stopping it besides.


Actually the bomb killed Surfer.

                    Most of the showings mentioned though are post Silver Age...Marvel still has those silver age feats in continuity, so you're dealing with absorption of the bomb that would have destroyed 1/4 of the Universe etc.

                    Thor didn't do any such thing, all he did was stop a chain reaction. And he actually died stopping that bomb.

                    There is absolutely nothing in the comic about the bomb starting a chain reaction. You just made that up.

                    The bombs were destroyed without any blasts occurring. Photon, Cap, Surfer all destroyed the bombs.

                                  Dying in the process has no effect on the feat itself. Superman could not absorb the energy that could destroy one fifth of the universe. Sometimes he can't even handle the energy of a single star, much less the energy that would destroy trillions of stars.

No, they did not set it off, they destroyed it before it was able to blow up. Much smaller explosion.

For example, take a plutonium bomb, blow it up externally so the shockwaves from the high explosive don't detonate simultaneously, you won't crunch it to critical mass, but just blow the constituent parts apart....little explosion that keeps the big esplosion from happening.

If there were no major consequences for the bombs going off, the book reads like this:

The life bombs are dangerous

'no they'r not, they'll blow up and do a little damage, but nothing big...we'll just hang out here for a while'

We see the effect of one actually going off...25% of the universe is destroyed...
