" well. all iknow ia Atlas pwns both of them.......Holding up the heaven for ever? lol beat that supes "
He never held up the heavens he held up the sky "
As I said earlier, the heavens are the sky. It's the same thing. "
Regardless its the sky which technically has no weight since its just apart of the atmosphere "
But going by mythology, the heavens (the sky) contains everything you can with your own eyes. And everything you can see in the sky has weight. And then you have to couple that with the atmosphere of Earth, technically, that's a lot of weight
That feat is based off of the mythological feat. Going by the origins of the task and ceasing the use of real world logic, Herc is holding up a shitton of weight.
but honestly, that feat shouldn't be held to canon anyway, otherwise people he's fought, he'd literally have no trouble with. Even holding back, Herc would've demolished anyone he's encountered, even if he held back if that was a feat directly tied to his stats. DC's Hercules did the same thing, and if you take that into account, he should be the strongest person on DC Earth and shouldn't have jobbed to KC Superman especially.
He would not win this with ease. Chaos Magic Grundy was getting stronger with every passing moment. And when magic users were around, specifically Dr. Fate and God Amazo, he was getting stronger even faster. No one could hurt him, sans Hawkgirl's mace, and that's only because it disrupted magic.
I don't think that actually counts anymore, considering Thor stood up to Hyperion, which should've been impossible considering the original stats of characters in the Ultimate U when the line started. They may be weaker than the 616, but it may not be the stomp one would think.
I don't know if he has Superman lvl strength. That might be pushing it a little. "
I'm not saying he could match Superman blow for blow, but he's within the strength class. Though his vine article says he's on Wonder Woman's level. And technically, she's in Superman's weight class. So it all makes sense in the end.
