I think part of the problem here is that in comics, durability and strength usually go hand in hand. It's rare when we have one without the other, and when it does happen the occurrences are pretty extreme (Brit, Butterball), or BS magic is involved (pressure points, like Luke Cage and BP).

So when someone get hurt (as in the case of Hunter Prince or whatever), it's usually the case that the person doing the hurting is stronger and more durable, even if they don't have pure lifting feats for comparison.

No, I didn't claim he wasn't mugged. I said from the beginning what actually happened.



Your mental gymnastics to justify using it despite it not being canon is as irrelevant as it is retarded, but even ignoring that stupidity it had context. I mean how Darkseid got effected isn't even how I've ever seen it work in canon, but you gotta use this to make your retarded argument.

All to justify you using the Starro example. You claim Morrison didn't write a weak Orion, but I know you can't prove it. But tell me, what did Morrison have Orion do for you to claim this? Or are you going to say I'm just seeking attention because you don't want to admit you have nothing?


You do get the mention of Darkseid was in response to Beatboks saying any version of Superman would beat Aquaman to justify his Barda scaling. Reason I brought up Darkseid and how most would probably claim the same for him so by the same logic muggers should scale above AquamanÖ but go whatever direction you want with it, here you go 🥇 congrats man.


In all honestly though I didnít know the mugger thing wasnít cannon. But that wasnít my point regardless.

The issue there is the scaling was used to claim Aquaborg > Wonder Woman. And in turn somehow by Abhi Iím sure this was the intent for it. Superman > Aquaborg > Wonder Woman by Ahbiís scaling.

Not that I disagree with the idea Superman is stronger than either. But I donít think thereís any indication Aquaborg was stronger than his present day self. He was more powerful because of the equipment he came by in a more Prometheus/Batman with prep type way. But he was legit using Cyborgís for parts to survive not to enhance his physicals. Iím not claiming he was physically weaker than main Aquaman either because I donít think thereís any statement in the arc that inferred that. But it works both ways and logically Aquaman is physically stronger than Cyborg by feats and showings.

Perception based I guess. There could be a difference given there was different factors sure. Iíd just argue the fact that the writer made a deal of it for a reason, showed the impact of said attack issues prior for a build up, had the character reference the fact he was planning to destroy Atlantis again because ďhis dream was deadĒ and thereís no practical reason for Atlan to reduce his attack given said dream was dead. Thereís no suggestion he was physically weaker or stronger either.

It was submerged compared to the original instance which could make a difference, it was a older ďundeadĒ Atlan which could make a difference, and it was a smaller Atlantis at this point since it use to be 7 kingdoms and now itís 1. But again itís basically arguing whatís shown vs what you believe if you bring up those factors despite the writer not really making a point of them. Personally given itís the one feat Aquaman has like it I donít really stress on it too much. I just think it helps validate claims like where heís being suggested as one of the strongest people on the planet.

Given Mera can do stuff like hold back a global flood and Aquaman survived a outburst from her albeit being unconscious and losing his memory. I donít think him being somewhere inbetween continental-continental + is outlandish.

Nope, doesn't matter. We can't assume the scepter was that powerful because Aquaman has been koed by far less.

I meant the same idiotic logic claiming anything Superman does > Aquaman. So applying faulty ass scaling like Beatboks to suggest Bardaís power output would knockout Aquaman. Without even knowing what her damage output is with the Megarod. Iíve yet to see exotic abilities that were mentioned at the start of this thread and now weíre on page 6 talking about Superman. You and Abhi need help.


I provided 2 feats for the blast of Barda's MR not just one.
You only dismiss the Superman feat because of failed (proven by others shown feat) power equating for Superman's level of the era. You haven't said anything to address the durability level of Matrix supergirl.

As I've shown she has tanked the heat vision of pre crisis Supergirl and has scaled physically to her. Unlike Superman she doesn't have low showings to bring her durability ranking down

Both the Matrix and Superman incident were written by the Sam writter less than a dozen issues apart in Action comics. The fact that Mateix was one shot ans Superman tool 2 shots before falling is clear evidence of where said writer places Superman's durability.

You've hung everything aledgedly invalidating scaling by referencing a single feat of Superman succumbing to a gas station explosion that its already been explained to you by Delta has context and now by PR that it isn't even the era in question.

I could just as easily low ball Arthur by the time he was put down by Hawkman (who at best has 15 ton strength, and 20 ton striking with just his mace and not the claw of Horus), or his hand eaten off by piranha, or him being nested and dropped by bloodsport.

I haven't because I don't lowball. I apply an average of all feats in scaling, and those are all stupid lows that should be ignored.

As I've already said since said writer showed Superman more durable than Matrix the two feats validate the SupermN feat as well above any low. Just continue to fire off the same repeated failed arguments that have been shot to pieces. For someone accusing someone of not offering proof at least mine has been canon and in context

Well what's your interpretation of "any version" of Superman? If he meant that literally(any time Superman was weakened or powerless, other media) I wouldn't agree. I usually think of canon or "main canon" versions. If he meant any era of Post-CRISIS baring being weakened? Yes, I would put Pre-DOS above Aquaman. You citing just one example even taken at face value doesn't outweigh a whole lot more other showings. And I'm only going by comics published before Superman's first power up. Comics published after but take place before have big feats too. Like, I gave an example bigger than continent level and cited others bigger(that I can post if I go looking, don't have on hand).

Not only was Darkseid getting mugged not canon, he lost his powers, or sure seemed to. I mean he's using a crowbar to break into the store just before he got mugged.

(please log in to view the image)

You say you didn't know it was canon. You also obviously didn't know the context. So no, even if it were canon, muggers beating a powerless Darkseid wouldn't beat Aquaman, unless he also was powerless. Or Stilt sucked someone off to write it.

But you saying that wasn't your point.....your point just utterly fails when you don't know what actually happened in the example you're arguing.

You argued Morrison didn't write a weak Orion. I genuinely want you to give examples why you think this, because of your argument of the Starro example with Orion and Aquaman. You argued Orion>Barda, which is true, but then you say Morrison didn't write a weak Orion. Yet if I only knew the New Gods from Morrison's run, but had all the rest of my comic knowledge in tact, I would argue with you that Barda is physically superior. Because that's the only conclusion I could come to in that scenario. And a lot of that is from the Starro example you argue.

A few other things I hadn't thought of at the time, EG.

Whether it's your intent or not, you pretty much are arguing "only Aquaman can have his good feats, because I've seen/heard if some low showings those characters are questionable at best." For the most part people aren't bringing up poor showings for Aquaman, but you're bringing up poor showings for other characters, not even counting the out of context and non canon Darkseid mugging. Now that Abhi is doing it, are you going to complain?

Your argument against scaling examples is as if people are saying "Barda KOed X so only their highest feats count." Can you quote anybody doing that? If not either this is just dumb, or you're making strawman.

Random Apokolipsian small arms have been shown to hurt Orion and stated able to kill him(although he's avoided those), so why is it so far fetched a better established weapon can hurt Top-Tier bricks? New God tech is pretty hax in general.

And you never actually answered me on Aquaman's durability feats. You only cited the continent level feat, and I strongly suspect it's not from the period I asked for to compare his durability to Orion. Even if it is from that period.....Orion has better. So this is why I say yes, Morrison did write a weak Orion. This is a big part of your argument for Aquaman, saying Orion>Barda.
