Quote:But Superman wasn't fighting Hulk, the only duel was if Hulk could even move Superman.
Quote:It isn't saying Hulk is reaching Superman in strength though. Where is it stated?
Quote:The entire encounter between them is the duel. The Hulk is certainly trying to hurt Superman and we are told that the outcome is in doubt which means he might succeed. The only way I can think of for the Hulk to succeed is for his strength to approach Superman's. Why in the last panel does Superman need to raise his hand to block Hulk's punch? Are Hulk's punches starting to hurt him?
Uh-huh, there is no duel between Superman and Hulk. The only thing that was being tested was if Hulk could even move Superman as stated explicitly in the comic.
Hulk might hurt Superman but hurting someone and actually beating someone is a different thing.
There is no reason give for why Superman blocked Hulk's punch but its not due to being hurt. He is just concentrating on the device by Doom.
