Punisher is not an elite martial artist like Shiva, but should Shiva be competitive against Batman?Sans batsuit & attendant gimmicks Shiva would eat Batman for lunch.
I disagree. The power doesn't stem from their actual muscles but of stored energy in their cells. Its not like men and women's cells behave differently. Also, they aren't human. We see tons of different species where the males are not the physically dominate gender.This goes towards aforementioned power source. Does it multiply base level strength male 225lb bench/female 100lb bench x 1,000,000), or add a set amount of strength (male/female both get a 1,000,000lb increase in which case the starting 125lb dufference is moot) regardless?
As for Kryptonian women being stronger than men? Until thats canon...its not.
You can say the reverse about Kryptonian men being stronger than the women.
The only thing we know is that Supergirl at times has been shown as being in the same general ballpark as Superman in strength.
