Hey, John thanks for the defend post, you actually beat me to the punch. Now to go a step further. I'm sorry you couldn't read the blog Vidar because of what I wrote as the Hulk's powers. Just know that I put down everything that the Hulk has been shown to do. Whether a writer will discredit that ability in another story is fine with me but it doesn't change the fact that the Hulk (or any other character for that matter) did it.

Too bad you didn't read Hercules's powers and stuff because I think I did him justice as well.

I love all the characters and fights that I do write ups on (check them all out on my blog). So I honor them by always basing it on the truth, there is no other way. And doing that surprises a lot of people, especially fanboys. I'm also friends with a lot of creators in the industry that if I can't answer a question or if there is a big debate on something, I go to them for the answers.

I love Hercules and I love his fights with the Hulk so I would never discredit any story that has been shown. When I do a write up, it's all about writing with your head and not your heart.

Give the blog a chance and maybe you'll enjoy it. Then I would love to know what you truly think:)

Feel free to leave a comment on the blog site, good or bad, I love it all.

Ok, a very detailed and entertaining compilation, the format of which reminds me of what the great Ray Kirby put up on Thor's battles waaay back when the net was still young.

Hulk is a foremost Marvel icon. Hercules is not. It's really that simple. Stan got it right with their first encounter (and also when Hulk visits Asgard). But, we have the hulkamaniacs to contend with, so (if you've noticed) Herc's showings are becoming increasingly feeble against a character that was originally shown as nothing more than inferior by his creator.

That aside, I think you got a couple of things wrong. You assume that Herc will tire and weaken before Hulk. Really? Herc IS immortal (when not mortal ;\-\) which counts for a lot, depending on the writer. His stamina is well into the godlike category and he can fight for weeks. Can the same be said of Hulk? You also attest that Hulk just keeps getting stronger, which is something hulkamaniacs like to cite, but even fan-boy writers stay away from, as obviously it's clearly preposterous. How can an irradiated man be truly infinite in any capacity, let alone posses limitless strength?

Personally, I would class these two as solid peers, with a battle going either way in different scenarios. Unfortunately, Marvel thinks it needs its Superman equivalent to be right up. If Hulk is depicted as anything less than the strongest mortal to walk the Earth there isn't much of the character left, which your review attests. Well done on an entertaining read.
