Subj: Absolutely my friend. There has to be room for a rare upset.

Reply Subj: I admit that I kind of disagree with his definitions...

> mostly because, for the most part, a typical member of one category is usually NOT going to absolutely destroy a typical member of a category one step below them. Most PM's can be competitive with heralds, or even beat heralds 50% or more if specific matchups favor them.
> Immortal Hercules has shown the capacity to fight Firelord evenly, seemed to be at least even with Frankie Raye, and has fought Thor evenly enough times that it clearly illustrates the point.
> Classic Magneto, during the days when he was clearly PM was a substantial fight for Thor, and would probably win 2/10 or so against him, the way they usually fought...and Thor would NOT have destroyed him on a consistent basis.
> Likewise, most high end streets have proven substantial threats to meta level opposition...Punisher was a VERY real threat to Wolverine, for instance.
> Heralds should LOSE to 'heraldbusters', but might well be able to put up a good fight and hold their own for a while. For instance, while I would put the Destroyer armor in the heraldbuster/teambuster category, Thor HAS shown the capacity to fight it for a substantial amount of time and hold his own. Even the Thing has a good showing against it! The guys that heralds CAN beat, but are the definate underdog against are really what we're looking for...guys like Jurgens' Mangog are perfect...Thor was beaten consistently, but showed he DOES have the capacity to pull an upset.

So tell me... what does being unable to defeat the Silver Surfer have to do with the definitions above seeing as there are all types and levels of Herald classes ?
