Subj: Coming of Atlas question
Posted: Thu Apr 24, 2014 at 11:42:18 am EDT (Viewed 153 times)

When Superman was fighting Atlas in the previous continuity, he was confident he could win but he was weakening. I was under the impression that General Sam Lane was experimenting with some kind of weapon and testing it on Superman during that fight to see if Superman's powers would weaken and allow Atlas to win.

Am I right or wrong? If I am right, can I have a scan please?

And did Superman ever have a rematch with Atlas? If so, who won?

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?
