so we just gonna ignore hercules lifting the universe?

lmao people come to dumbass conclusions like this based on a single low showing and yet superman needed help from the jl members to move a planet, and even braniac confirmed he couldn't move pluto a small planet.

Do you know how to read or you just like looking at pretty pictures? There was a similar scene 1980's or 1990's and during the letters to the editor someone wrote Marvel to explain how was this possible, the editor replied it was just Hercules boasting the scene described never happened.

So if this feat is hyperbole by Hercules. What are the chances of basically the same feat times a 1 trillion being hyperbole also?

You’re attributing the legitimacy of one feat to another. Thats not how it works.
So unless you can get a signed statement from the appropriate editor, the feat stands.

You guys are confusing Thor #356 (1985), which is indeed Hercules telling stories to a young kid, and Incredible Hercules (2008) where Hercules takes Atlas burden on panel during an actual story arc.

He was holding a magical leyline.

You’re still hanging on to that fabrication.

Is English your  second language?

1. The first feat I listed was Hercules bragging. In the letter pages the Editor confirmed that it never happened it was basically Hercules exaggerating and talking out of his ass.

2. The second feat is basically a take off the  same feat just exaggerated beyond quantification. What's so hard to understand that if the first one is false, the second has to be false also? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand this.

Not happening.

I'd have to see the wording, first, because secondhand interpretations often prove to be problematic.  However, does a letters page hold some kind of authority?  Because I've got some "good" letters page statements that may make you want to rethink how feasible it is to make those responses canon.

So your opinion is that a letters page response in the 90's should override a story in 2008?

yeah an editors note isn't going to fly.The original writer would hold a little weight but them playing the events out in comic would still count as a retconn showing it did happen.

And I doubt the person who wrote that was even considering the original writer or editor. That is taken right from the original myth.

Hulk was about to break the moon a few months ago. Marvel sucks.
