Worst comic logic/physics in feats/stories

What are some of the worst cases of "comic physics" or logic that we've seen? I'll start by saying many peak human have been written as way above human level--puck, cap america, kingpin, etc. Now I know we have to draw the line somewhere because it is all fiction. Also, with spider man getting the proportionate strength of a spider....it's well known that tiny animals/insects would be much weaker per size if they were bigger (I've studied enough physics to know how this works if anyone cares for me to elaborate).
Go ahead, put on your thinking caps and shoot.

Worst logic I've seen is how some people seem to think comics should be strictly regimented rather than stretching or compressing powers to suit the far more important matters of character and story.

wink

And most spiders can lift far more in proportion to their body weight than most humans. The problems with simple enlargement come from the limitations of the skeletal structure. But that's a 1:1 shift in terms of body type...Pete's is obviously a far different scenario. But yeah, if he were literally a spider you'd be onto something.

The speedforce got a little bit ridiculous after a while.

Reed and Bruce's gadgets sometimes make little or no sense but no specific one jump to mind.

Peter isn't a giant spider, he simply has the same body weight to strength ratio of a normal one.

I've always wondered how these super strong characters can lift as much as they do, without their bones being crushed under extreme weight.

I'd say it's less 'Bad Logic' and more 'boasting beyond capabilities'.

Class 100s not being able to jump out of the orbit and hitting characters without them flying out of orbit. Also what Grunewald did in a Quasar issue...

getting into orbit is a matter of attaining a certain speed, which is primarily linked to a different muscular fiber than strength. runner v. weightlifter. the latter has more muscle, the former is faster. strength does not imply speed, nor the other way around.

*sigh* The Hulk has shown he has the reflexes fast enough to catch a missle, he has vast amounts of strength and weighs compartively little....Hulks going out of orbit.

Hulk is very fast and strong and hes also been able to move his hand at 1/9th the speed of light. Hes going into orbit.
