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.
I think you missed my point. I think "Strength" is NOT everything. Strength ALONE is not the end all and be all as some suggest. Just because Hulk can get stronger doesn't give him an auto win. Characters like Superman and Thor bring much more to the table then just strength. Things like Speed, Martial Skills and especially, Energy Projection that Strength simply can't compare with. But in comics, Hulk's strength somehow gives him the edge in many people's minds.
My point is, without the Dynamic Healing and Durability IN ADDITION to the Dynamic Strength, the Hulk's Strength alone would never be enough to give him a chance against foes like Thor/Superman/Silver Surfer etc.
