One thing that I truly find annoying after all those years reading comics, is the persistence of some obvious exaggerations.
For example, for decades now we have been reading that FF4 Johnny Storm can use a flame that is at the temperature of a nova. Well well, 20 000 000 degrees Kelvin seems a little bit too much to me, especially considering what it would do to anything standing in the vicinity of the Torch (including the air).
An other example is the annoyingly high number of characters who claim to be omnipotent or omniscient while one of those two options already would put more or less an end to any kind of story.
An other well worn out category is the number of characters suddenly claiming to be the "strongest there is" or "of infinite strength" or even "of strength unpaired in the whole universe", when clearly they are being confronted to characters of their level or higher a few issues later...
It would be nice if the writers could stop resorting to all those hyperboles. First because it would make the stories more interesting and we would have become a little less blasé, and second, it would avoid some pointless arguments on the battle threads where people are trying to use those claims and statements literally.
Here are some examples that I am sure you have been reading before:
-"Skyfather <insert random name> is omnipotent, he could do anything" (while skyfather XXX is always shown to have limits for good reasons: it would kill the story and there are plenty of other skyfather level characters around anyway).
-"Hulk/Thor/Hercules/Superman/Wonder Man/Wonder Woman/Sentry etc... is stronger than anyone else" because it says so in this issue/we saw him lifting a planet/this writer made him carry a universe on his back etc... (well, the truth is that the strength of characters simply vary with the writer's intent and the current trend, superman might be the best example for that).
-"This punch/blow/energy blast/psi blast could crack a planet open...", oh come on, please save the planets. You don't have to let every guy above street leveller destroy a planet once in while just to impress us, we prefer good stories to raw power output.
Those were just out of the top of my mind, but there are dozens of others of course. so it would be nice if the writers could discipline themselves in that field and if the joyous fans that we are could avoid over using those statements in the battle forum, they really don't bring much to the debate most of the time.
Ok, I'm done with today's ranting. Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
