We would have loved to see more on the battles that took place!! Personally, I thought that there should have been way more of Spidey and Captain Marvel, only for selfish reasons!

Hey Kurt, over on the Thor board, there is a list of feats that Thor has accomplished. You probably already know them all, but it might help to refresh your memory or put them in perspective. I know this thing has been dragged through the mud, and I hope you don't mind yet another comment on the Sups Thor fight, so here it goes. Given all of his special attacks, do still believe that Sups would win most of the time in battle? I used to give Sups the slight edge because of speed and durability, but I think that Thor's array of powerful magic attacks combined with his strength that seems to increase to match the opposition, that Thor actually has an overall advantage. Tell me why I am wrong!

I think it could go either way, but I wouldn't assign a percentage of wins -- that's just one more thing to fight repetitively about. It's about stories, not about rolling dice.

No.

Honestly, and with all due respect, if you want to argue about Thor and Superman's powers, there are guys at the battle board who'd love to get into it with you, but I'm just not one of them. I wrote it the way I wrote it because it made sense and made for a good story that way. I don't have to convince you that you'd write it the same way if you wrote it, any more than you have to convince me that I shoulda done it however you would have done it.

There's really no reason to continue the interminable fight, unless you enjoy it. And if so, the best people to continue it with are other people who'll enjoy it.
