    I think he meant that Maul died of a heart attack from growing so big. Anyway, it's a Marvel/Wildstorm crossover, so it doesn't really count for anything.

    sure..you know i kinda regret that i didn't include hulk in my comic collection...maybe it was the art..i always buy my comics based on the art if it didn't satisfy me then i aint picking it up..it was mike deodato jr's art that discouraged me to pick hulk up i don't like his style.

    Hmmm. Well, it's never too late to pick up back issues. :)

    I'm personally partial to Herb Trimpe, Dale Keown, and Sal Buscema when it comes to Hulk related art.

    Looks like it's gonna be about the Hulk kicking the Thing's ass. Again.

    The Hulk rarely completly kicks The Things ass. Ben's always put up very good fights. I mean, look no farther then his performances against the SS and The Champion. He isn't mistreated or anything. :o If anything, the complete opposite.

    The Hulk still beats him pretty much every time. That's what I meant by my comment, that yet another Thing vs. Hulk fight is kind of pointless because the Thing has consistently lost every or almost every fight between them.

    Bleh, they've always been enjoyable enough for me. Haven't had a good one in a while. One of those annual Marvel kind of things. :D

    I was thinking about starting a thread about this but ill just ask here.

    Is Squadron Supreme the closest thing Marvel has to DC's Watchmen? In terms of quality and overall story and lets say controversy.

    that's a question of opinion, not fact. The answer is probably "yes", though, but remember, SS pre-dates Watchmen

    I know SS came out before Watchmen and thats why I was wondering. Okay so let me rephrase the question: In your opinion is Squadron Supreme the closest thing Marvel has to Watchmen?

    " Exactly why is it that when spiderman hits someone at full strength who has partial invulnerability that he doesn't break his hand?"

    I'm saying what can hurt him and what he can do doesn't add up.
    You can cut him,.. but he can survive having a brick wall cushion his fall without cuts or bruises.

    Does anyone understand what I'm asking?

    Yeah. Comics just don't take physics into account that well, I guess. I've wondered that myself, like why Luke Cage, if his skin isn't broken by bullets but Spider-Man's is, wouldn't automatically be considered tougher than Spider-Man and thus negate Spider-Man's ability to hurt him. Wouldn't Spider-Man's own hand be broken if he punched Luke if Luke is more durable than Spider-Man is?

    Yah, I'm the sort who wonders all the time.

    for example,.. Iron Man can survive a suborbital hop where the stresses would shread and crumble most man-made materials,... yet someone with 100 ton or better strength can hit hard enough to knock off pieces?

    Or why don't folk smell Giant man coming? if I can smell your average person from a foot or so away, and can smell something like an Elephant or giraffe from 30 or forty feet away,.... something that big you should at least smell 1/4 mile away or better.

    Or howcum the tech used by most villians and heroes are not used more in the everyday marvel universe?

    Pym particles would make construction a breeze,...

    Iron Man's armor allows him to travel into space, re-enter earths atmosphere, and so on. Designed to do such things and what not.

    Pym particles are also more then likely insanly expensive and nearly impossible to mass produce. I don't think very many people would be qualified to use them either. A lot of adamantiums uses around the MU though. The Vault, certain automated buildings, S.h.i.e.l.d, and so on. Some Avengers places use Omnium as well. Mostly metals that get the most uses I suppose.
