Hercules is a mythic based character though. That sort of thing doesn't seem so out of place with him as it does with Superman, who being a Kansas farm boy, seems a little more grounded in the real world. :smt102

He is an alien from another world who flies, can hear a mouse fart on the other side of the world, and shoots lasers from his eyeballs, while PRETENDING to be a Kansas farm boy. Please tell me again about how much more grounded in reality the Kryptonian is. ;)

I'm not saying it makes sense, but one breaks my suspension of disbelief and takes me out of the story and the other doesn't. In the end, that's the difference. :smt102

When real winter is happening in North America, many comics set in places like NYC will have winter in their pages (the Dec, Jan, Feb, etc, issues). Then when summer is happening in the real world North America, it happens in the comics too. If you try and track it, you notice that these characters have seen a LOT of winters and summers, but yet they have not gotten any older, and they're refer to stuff that happened 20 issues (and 3 or so winters) ago as "weeks" ago.


What's wrong with that? Old people always say "oh I haven't seen you in months" when actually they haven't seen you in years or "oh, we haven't talked in years" when haven't talked in decades and so on.

Well, for one thing, apparently Christmas happens at a minimum of ten times a year in the MU. Every December there's a Christmas issue, so Spidey has had 167 Christmases in his 27 or so years of life! :)
