Just because Pak wrote Superman doesn't mean he's not biased. Everyone, no matter how partial they are or try to be, has some bias in them. Everyone has their favorite characters or likes this character better than that character.
Quote:And if Pak says Hulk can beat Superman, he obviously likes Hulk more. Thus, he's biased.
That's circular reasoning. If Pak said Superman can beat Hulk, does he obviously like Superman more and thus he's biased in that direction? It is possible to be biased and still maintain balance. It's not always easy, but it's certainly possible, so bias in itself isn't an indication of being wrong. One of my favorite characters is Cyclops, well, he was before Marvel ruined him. I may be biased toward Cyclops but I'm not going to say he can beat either Hulk or Superman. That said, I do think Pak has displayed Hulk fanboy tendencies to the point that his views of the Hulk are a significant departure from the views of most people, other Hulk fanboys being the exception.
That's all to say, Pak is biased but that doesn't mean he's wrong. But I think he is wrong in this case. Hulk CAN beat Superman, but he's not going to take a majority of wins in most incarnations.
