If you want to keep the comic book ideologies you have to put the hamster (Superman or any other hero that shares the ideology) on a treadmill for the rest of his life or the the life of his enemy. (Zod, Luthor, etc...)
No detours just keep going down the same unending and identical route because we want a hero that's the same but different all the time. It never matters how many hundreds, thousands, millions of faceless lives in the meantime are sacrificed because one so called cool enemy is worth all that hassle.
There is nothing that Cyclops could do to win this imo. Cyclops fires optic blasts and that's kinda like saying a fancy laser and Batman has never dodged those before, of bullets, or rpg's, or meta beings, or.... wait he has and does so on a daily basis by those that are going for the kill with every shot.
@ironfanofsteelofthunder: I was talking about the rock creature. In WWH some of them crashed on Sakaar before Hulk arrived. Also when Korg talked about his past it did mention when he and his brothers ran into Thor on Earth. They thought he was a normal human and lost to him before running away.
