No doubt -- force sufficient to only "bloody and bruise" them proved to be great enough to nix the planet on which they bloodied and brusied each other. They proved tougher than Metropia, like I said before: The planet blew up; they didn't.

I seriously doubt it, to be honest. I think it was simply this: Because of their link to the planet, Metropia took every shot that they did. Simplest explanation.

Good luck trying to get him to talk about his abysmal run on Superman. Guy's in the Witness Protection Program after that. \:\)

But that's assuming that the planet received the same amount of force that they dished out to each other. The main idea behind this specific theory was that the planet was injured when either one were injured, though not necessarily to the exact ratio.

I wouldn't mind if this was the case. The only alternative that can make it look better as a feat if it were simply the side effects from the force of the two punching.
