this is almost as god a question as who would win in a fight between agent smith and T1000 well superman is clearl stronger, hes the man of steel and he can effortlesly lift a train were as the hulk shows struggling so there and hes a freakin alien plus the hulk shows fatigue from time to time, superman only gets tired when kryptonite is in the picture or when he fought those guys who came from the crystal in space in spiderman 2, so ya superman al the way
Superman is.They had a DC/marvel teamup once with spidey and supes and during the story supes fought the hulk and the hulk knocked supes clear across the ocean when supes wasnt expecting a punch from him but then supes came back and was ready and prepared for the hulk and told spidey that he could handle him now.That he was caught off guard before but now that he was prepared nothing could stop him and whenever he is prepared and does not want to move,nothing can move him which turned out to be true because the hulk kept pounding him unable to move supes and eventually got tired and wore down and transformed back to doc banner.
I dont know which crossover you are talking about but Hulk never beat Superman up in a crossover.
The first time they met Superman got caught off guard but then battled him for a long time until Hulk got fatigued and ran out of juice and went back to Bruce Banner.
The last time they met... Marvel was pitted against DC. Superman says I hate to do this but I can't let my universe be destroyed. Knocks Hulk's green a$$ out in one punch. When something big in on the line Superman will go all out. Usually though he won't... he holds back because of his vow to never take a life. If the stakes were the high... Hulk would't stand a chance.
Supes wins. I remember when Spidey received the power cosmic, he punched the hulk into space, who was scared for his life because he couldn't breathe. If I remember correctly, Spidey felt bad and brought hmi back to earth.
Supes could easily do the same.
Angry hulk can life a mountain. Supes moves planets.
The concept behind Superman was always super-natural, he isn't truly bound to conventional physics, because he, even post-crisis Supes, is way more fantasy based than Hulk. He only has one weakness, for instance, whereas Marvel characters are usually based on "exaggerated realism" rather than complete fantasy.
Hulk is fantastical, but on a more scientific level. Such as, his size increases with rage, and he gets more powerful, logical. His origin is science based, and he is also human. He is still based on realistic parameters but on a human and Earthly level. In my opinion that makes him a better character, due to the fact Stan Lee made him a character that teeters on the brink of rediculousness, but doesn't go overboard like Supes, but thats not what we are discussing here.
They are two totally different concepts, that are successful because they both work within their contexts. I hate crossovers mainly because of this. It's an unfair comparison. The way Superman is constructed as a character, he would annihilate The Hulk.
That's why I don't like crossovers. Theres always a character thats better than the best. Supes would destroy most of Marvels stock single handedly, because Marvel do their characters one way, and DC do theirs another way.
wow that was a really good explanation i do believe at one point my head cocked sidewa and my eyes went cross eyed but wow its good too meet a fellow geek who ix as wel spoken as myself that based on exagerated realism points,,,,,,, stroke of genious i salute you with a dancing banana
Superman knocks out the weak ass Professor Hulk. Wanna talk crossovers? In the 1999 crossover when he fights Savage Hulk, Superman gets his ass handed to him severely. Hulk throws Superman into space.
Hulk has destroyed planets twice the size of earth. Hulk has sent shockwaves across the globe, and he has punched the earth so hard he sent it out of it's orbit. Hulk has moved entire planets with strength alone. He doesn't need flight to assist him like Superman does.
Hulk has limitless increasing strength. The madder he gets, and the longer he fights, and the stronger he gets. He isn't a human, so he has no limit to his rage. Superman may be stronger at first, but in time Hulk will be a billion times stronger than Superman.
