When did you became J Jr, Dav?

You are so anal these days, i can barely tell you two apart.

Of course you should.

But going by your logic if what Sue did was "rational" then it means that the other feat who isent based on such will be by default more impressive to look at.

Because that means more laws of physics and common sense wer broken.

Of course you should. Both in common sense and awe. As such, the "datf" obscure 70`s feat for me is more comic book impressive, simply because (among other reasons) we have to suspend our disbelif more, the same way Superman holding the Dward Star would be in comparation with the other who is more grounded in rational logic.

Say, im surprised you disagree with me even when you present a logic that shows what i mean. That was odd *eek*

Well see, you called me out because a poster asked my view and you didn't like my answer. Not that disagreement is ever an issue but rather than explore why i gave the response i did you just attacked my thinking on it, which i take offense to as it's none of your buisiness and i had fully explained why i gave the response i did..

And that is my issue - How did he do it if the island is formed on bedrock, what route did he use, how could he tow the island back to it's exact placement and about a dozen other implications...
As a feat it makes no sense and is more whimsy than based on any physics, real or Cod.

To me the Sue Richards feat is something i can conceive of as happening within the fiction and what we know of the character. The Hercules one though doesn't stand up to any scrutiny, it's presentation is just whimsical and not even thought about by the writer, it reminds me too much of the Hulk Vs. Plates feat - neither have any plausibility about them and they're just there because the writer thinks they're cool ideas he's had but can't actually think of any way to put it across as being remotely plausible... probobly because for the characters concerned they aren't.

It's as simple as that with me.
