Posted by G_Money_Christmas

@G_Money_Christmas: Ohh Man,this is terrible...you want name of a site orprogram to download it?

Posted by G_Money_Christmas

@matchesmalone21: No, I'm gonna go back and get them soon. I just didn't have as much as I thought I did then. I like having the actual books to collect anyway... I'm trying to build up a nice collection. Thanks, though

Posted by matchesmalone21

@G_Money_Christmas:Okay!!! you're welcome

Posted by toptom

Posted by Z3RO180

@toptom:SO MUCH AWESOME.

Posted by Wboy

Holy, *clap clap* amazing. WW needs a thread like this to D:

Posted by toptom

@Wboy: @Z3RO180: thanks guys! and more scans will come!

Posted by matchesmalone21

@toptom: Lifting a portion of a building and then fix it!!

Posted by Lvenger

@toptom:Dude this is awesome. Major respect to you for this. Finding all these scans must have taken you quite a while.

Posted by toptom

@Lvenger: actually i already had got all of these scans,that i have saved during some years. now i have decided to put them online in a respect thread,since i wanted to make some kind of tribute to THIS version of supes. ( tough i love even the new one)

Posted by xxxddd

@toptom:

Can you reorganize the OP?

Make it to where each feat has a description, not just a bunch of bundled up scans.

Posted by toptom

@xxxddd: that requires TIME...and if i'll have it,i'll do that.

besides this,if you don't want to look at them and understand what's happening on your own YOU can make a better respect thread than this that appeals to you.

Posted by xxxddd

@toptom: Just reply to me when you finish doing it.

Edited by toptom

@xxxddd:i'll do that IF i will have the time and IF i will want to do that...but mostly: what makes you think that you can give orders to me or anyone else? you must be an enraged 15 years boy,that is crossing puberty just right now. well i don't have any intention to waste my time with you.bye for ever.

Posted by termiteone4ever

Excellent

Posted by tensor

Great job

Posted by lightsout

AWESOME collection

Posted by Lvenger

@toptom: Sorry mate but your scans are all gone :( The new site has ruined this thread.

Posted by Z3RO180

And people say majestic is stronger than Supes to that I say Pfft as if

Posted by Lvenger

@toptom: Hey you fixed it! Awesome job man, I'm debating with Superman now and this is a real useful thing now that it's back!

Posted by Squalleon

Great! the post has been restored :-)

Posted by toptom

@lvenger: i didn't do nothing! luckily they have reposted all the scans!

@z3ro180: i am with you on this

@squalleon: i am releved too...i don't think that i would have find the time( or the will) to do it again.

Posted by Lvenger

@toptom: Yeah I thought they did that. Either way it's still a good thing!

Posted by HeWhoSees

Wait...

For that Superman taking a super nova that's fifty times larger than a Supernova thing...what happened afterwards? It said that a thingy of radiation would have incinerated him if it touched him...so...did it touch him or what?

Posted by toptom

@hewhosees: that bubble of radiation could kill him since he was extremely weakened by red sun radiations but his father managed to save clark by ordering to the kryptonian spaceship to rescue him.

Posted by HeWhoSees

But was that bubble of radiation the 50 TIMES SUPERNOVA itself?

Edited by toptom

.. no,the explosion happened before.

Edited by Deranged Midget

Wicked find on the speed control scan where it explains how he controls his speed! I've been looking for that particular scan for months!

With the helping to hold Spectre feat, and the holding the book feat with Captain Marvel, Superman has lifted infinity twice. "He had help", the anti-Supes types will say. What is half of infinity? Infinity. "There's no telling how much it weighed, it said infinite pages." An infinite amount of any matter with a weight value will equal infinite weight.

Hulk can p*** off, Supes is the strongest there is.

Posted by HeWhoSees

You gonna sum up his speed there toptom? Because...those scans are too small for me to go through them easily and read what's in them.

Posted by HeWhoSees

Also: what happened after that fifty times thingy that stopped Superman from being incinerated and was that cloud Kryptonite related? I want to full story for a feat like that.

Edited by modunhanul

Awesome images, thank you!

superman has put an entropy bomb inside the sun eater. while he was inside of it,he was being weakned by red sun's radiation but he still was able to survive to that huge explosion. after the explosion,there were those strange bubles of radiations flying around,but then pa kent has saved his son.that's all.there is no k-nite at all.
