The Ultimate Comparison between DC Heroes' Heights

https://www.costumecollection.com.au...on/#more-20092



Someone has rigorously tried to come up with this chart based on the actual comics. You could quibble with some of the listed heights and it looks as if they assigned many of the mid-tier JLAers the same height to avoid conflict. It does put the Starfire-Nightwing relationship in a new light.

I am almost certain that DC Comics themselves would make Wonder Woman taller than this listed height.

Fail because of a mix of pre new 52 and post new 52 (though which Batgirl is that? Doesn't look like Cassie but she's blonde).

Starfire's always been shown as much taller than Dick, though, at least from what I remember in New Teen Titans.

Stephanie Brown? It doesn't look like her Batgirl costume though, but I don't know any other blonde Batgirls.

Perhaps were running out of thread ideas.

Argh, right, I meant Stephanie.

I think Cooke's New Frontier is the first time I can remember WW being drawn as much bigger and a true Amazon.

Now we just need to know how long their dicks are.

I was thinking more of DC today and their editorial edicts regarding Wonder Woman. Her power levels and general stature have been greatly ramped up since that was published.

Who's Who was great in the day but the current people running DC haven't shown too much regard for past continuities.

Oh my friend, you haven't spent countless hours at a comic book store discussing pressing questions such as "how does Superman pee?" and "can Wolverine kill himself?"

Is there some debate about how Superman pees that I've been unaware of all these years? Can you link me to a Wizard article, please?

As I have come to discover, there is always some crazy Silver Age Superman story that answers every possible question you could have about him.

Here is Batman.

I have read some debates on the internet that Superman's body is so efficient at energy conversion that his body produces no waste. Therefore he never has to poop or pee. I have even seen some people claim Superman doesn't even have a butthole.

I don't have any links, because it nothing official. It's just nerd debate from places like GameFAQs. I can never forget the debates about Superman having no butthole though because that is just so freaking bizarre.

Re: The Ultimate Comparison between DC Heroes' Heights

The Wizard article thing was a joke, mainly because Wizard made regular features out of nerd debates. That is bizarre, though. Why does Superman sweat, then, if he's so efficient?

That Batman panel is from that horrid Kevin Smith mini, right? Ugh.

Re: The Ultimate Comparison between DC Heroes' Heights

I have no idea where that panel is from, sorry. It came up when I was looking for a humorous panel of Superman peeing to post in the thread.
