    However, you have hit the nail in the head , we are not talking about reality but comics which as we all know relate very little to reality as we know it.

    Right from the Silver age the cosmic powers have always been shown to be way beyond any other form of energy or power. Just look at how easy Silver Surfer took care of the Hulk in their first meeting.

    Indeed as Stan himself pointed out on more than one occasion he invented Thor to be more powerful than the Hulk and indeed initially was more powerful even than Silver Surfer, just look at very first clash in Silver Surfer 4.

    What Stan & Jack intended is massively important as it was their characters and they knew what they wanted. Sadly modern Marvel writers/editors have no respect for tradition or history of characters.

    For the record, the Savage Hulk of the 60's early 70's is still my favourite version and will always be the true Hulk to me.

As I've mentioned a few times in my posts to Immodicus, that the science in Marvel Comics is based on real world terminology. Even though effects to characters are dramatically fictionalized at times. But Gamma is such a superior force, that Stan Lee himself said it gives Hulk an unlimited strength potential. He did not say this about cosmic beings. Silver Surfer had to once absorb Hulk's gamma radiation in order to escape Galactus' barrier he used to imprison Surfer on earth. He didn't look for another cosmic being, he looked for Hulk because he possesses the Superior power. Case closed!

He's... A Misunderstood MONSTER! An INCREDIBLE force! He's ASTONISHING! That's why you don't comprehend him! And because of his...RAMPAGING, the Hater will not tolerate him SAVAGE, INDESTRUCTIBLE, nor his being IMMORTAL!!! Watch out for that Gamma Ray-Burst...The WORLD BREAKER!!!"Only the Hulk could have attempted it! Only the Hulk would have been capable of it! Only the Hulk could have done it!"- Tales To Astonish #063"There is no way to measure his strength! There is nothing he cannot do!"- Tales To Astonish #073"That something -- anything -- could grab hold of an energy field should be IMPOSSIBLE! But the Hulk grabs hold just the same!"- The Incredible Hulk #242"Hulk can do ANYTHING!!! Hulk is mind over matter, mind over energy, mind over mind"- Gamma Ra the Assassin aka Lord Smash'emall - Faithful Member of The Church of Hulk
