Question about Action Comics #831
« on: June 21, 2017, 04:20:26 PM »

[size=78%]In Action Comics #831 it was implied that Black Adam is stronger than Captain Marvel due to Superman's statements that BA was blessed with all the powers of Captain Marvel and more, and that BA hits harder than CM.[/size]


But I recall seeing people say on here and Killermovies t that Gail Simone apologized about Superman's statements, because she mistakenly thought BA was more powerful than CM, so my question is does anybody have a source where she apologized?


I'm asking this because I'm debating with some people on Comic Vine who keep using the "Superman said that BA is stronger than Cap" argument against me, and if Gail did indeed apologize a source would be really helpful to prove my case.

What one author had Superman say in one story is irrelevant to the decades of feats that show Captain Marvel and Black Adam are peers.

Right.  There will always be lip service but looking at the history as a whole is a better was to gage power levels.

Yet it's canon, has precedent, and counts towards the average.

In that portrayal, Adam>Captain Marvel. period.

..which is based on the original Adam showing. So.. per Byrne and Simone, the authentic historical basis of the Adam/ Cap rivalry from their standpoint at the time.
