In the movie Superman hasn't really gone up against anything threatening to anyone with any level of super strength and endurance, except Zod, his flunkies, and Kryptonite. In the newest movie some guy shot hot lead into his chest with a minigun for a minute or so, Hancock could have take that just as easily.
You don't understand, you can't compare a comic with years behind it's belt, to a single movie. While it's unfair either way, it's better to compare the newest, or even all the Superman movies against Hancock. That's like putting the movie X-Men against the comic X-Men, it's not fair, get it yet?
Well that's not 100%, this is a Superman thread, where movie Superman and Comic Superman can be used, since they discuss the movie superman here too. So unless the thread starter states it's comic Superman, then I say it's movie Superman.
He didn't say anything about comic book superman, he said SUPERMAN!!!!!!! So he can be talking about comic and movie.. If he was just talking about comic superman vs hancock wouldn't really make sence because hancock doesn't have a comic
superman in the comics was a god during the pre-crisis times. DC had to invent an event that threatened the universe to dial that power down. comic book superman would make compost out of hancock. this is undeniable. having said that, superman's feat in "returns" can be summarized as catching a crashing plane, traveling fast around the globe, lifting a boat, lifting an island and stopping a bullet with his eyeball. seems like crap display of superman's abilities.. however, hancock lifted an escalade and drew a heart on the moon.. you do the math...
Well hancock also stoped bullets when he got shot like 20 times in the face, threw a big a** whale into the ocean, stoped a train just buy standing on the tracks, and more. I know that doesnt compare to the stuff that superman has did since super man has comics and like 4 movies. But if there is gonna be a hancock 2 I believe we will see him do a lot more amazing things.
Ive already said it somewhere. Super strength, Super speed, Flight, invulnerability and something that makes him lose his powers.
Something that i dont like about Hancock is that,, if they are so powerful (even powerful enough to be against superman). Why did it only take a couple hundred metres away from the girl for him to regain his powers.. If their kind is so superior wouldnt they be feeling each others power from like galaxies away.
Im talking if this guy can actually beat superman. I highly doubt it tho.
Thats a pretty weak argument there. A lot of people have super strength, flight and durability. Claiming that he is a rip off because he has a weakness is just plain retarded. If you want to get technical then Superman ripped off Captain Marvel. Superman couldn't fly at first and he really wasn't super strong at all. IIRC he used to struggle with lifting a car. When creating a super hero those are 5 of the staple abilities to give one.
He doesn't fly like Supes, nor does he have a cape, HV, he is amnesiac, not an alien, etc. A lot of heroes have those 5 stated abilities and they are not Supes rip offs. Please try to make a better case on how he is a rip off.
Actually, Supes was created in 1932, Marvel followed a few years after, 1939, however, when Superman was first created, it took him a good amount of struggle to get a car over his head. And the whole, leap tall buildings in a single bound, that was because he couldn't fly at the time. Notice they dropped it once he could fly.
