Quote:In comics "Strength" trumps everything. I'm 194 lbs but gimme a baseball bat and I'm pretty sure that everyone here knows that I could take down a Powerlifter pretty easily with one or maybe two solid hits. Give an elite class warrior the same bat and it's even easier. Heck give a toddler a hammer and let him smack you on the head with it...anybody think their strength advantage over the toddler will suffice? Anybody want to line up for that test? I didn't think so.
It's not Hulk's dynamic Strength that makes him nearly unbeatable. His Dynamic Strength is matched by Dynamic Durability and Dynamic Healing. That is the key IMO. When you say, "Hulk is the Strongest there is" I say, "So what? Strength isn't everything." But when you combine that with his other attributes I say ok - that makes better sense.
I respectfully disagree. What good is dynamic strength and healing if Hulk is not allowed to use it? Especially if Superman speed blitzes him or throws him in orbit. Plus, Superman already beat Hulk. Professor Hulk maybe, but even he was capable of Dynamic strength. Then in another crossover, Superman did very well against a Savage Hulk who didn't win that fight either. So much for strength trumping everything.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
