> > Mageddon detonates as Superman is absorbing his anti-sunlight. But, for the sake of argument, how would that be any different if it didn't detonate? What was inside Mageddon was simply raw *concentrated* energy, as Superman explained, and Superman took it all in one big gulp. It wasn't like a chemical reaction waiting to happen, just compressed power set for release.
> I thought that Diana and the others merely thought that Mageddon was detonating. Couldn't it have been an after-effect of his powers being drained or the creature being deactivated?

Detonated or not makes no difference to me, as I said before, as Superman stopped Mageddon by absorbing all of Mageddon's power, as Superman explained. He took in all that "concentrated anti-sunlight" -- it wasn't as if he just turned off some sort of switch or stopped a "trigger," if that's what you mean by "deactivated." The comic is clear: Superman absorbed Mageddon's power in one huge gulp -- that was his means of "disarming" Mageddon.
> Mageddon was anti-sunlight, but I don't think there was definitive proof that it was the same level of energy the creature would have released.

It was his power source, as Superman explained. Everything Mageddon was and had.

> It may have been the same level as Mageddon intended to unleash, but it may have also been power source rather than the main means of causing the explosion.

Don't understand the distinction. Superman absorbed the concentrated power that Mageddon was set to release. Mageddon's power source was the bomb, as Superman explained.


>-it wasn't as if he just turned off a switch or stopped Mageddon's "trigger," if that's what you mean by "deactivated."

No, that's not what I meant. I know he absorbed all the energy from Mageddon's 'heart'.

> It was his power source, as Superman explained. Everything Mageddon was and had.
I understand, but what I was trying to question was if the energy release could somehow been stronger than the power source(pseudo comic science or something like that). After double checking my trade, I see what you're talking about since Superman clearly stated that the anti-sun was also the bomb, so I see where you're coming from.

As for the "For Tomorrow" fight, your take on it was certainly a fresh take on it(Didn't mean that in any offending manner). I thought that it was either the two somehow connected so that a cut on them would result on a huge gash in Metropia or if it was more blatant symbolism from Azzarello.
