    In fiction, there are no absolutes. The laws of physics and even common sense can be broken with impunity. Comics may be the greatest perpetuator of this, which means, as comic book fans, we all...

    Ah! I misread that, probably because the idea that Batman is far below those two is kind of bizarre.

    That's the way to approach it: what is the net sales for the advertising? DC could have spent as much on promotion as they did with the Bats/Cats one, but does anybody really believe the return would...

    Nah. Mountain is a zero on the fighter scale, while Babs is at least good (though not nearly as good as Cass or Shiva).

    Yes, a skilled and in-shape woman could do a lot of damage to an untrained man, regardless of his size. I wouldn't want to tangle with one, that's for sure. :eek:
