Ed King exhibits similar masculine qualities as those of Superman in Action Comic including strength, fearlessness, and his appeal to women, however, unlike Superaman, Ed’s ideal masculinity is criticized.

Superman is an eminent, ubiquitous paradigm for ideal masculinity. He is celebrated by the readers for his selflessness to help those in need and for his heroism in to exterminate the corrupt and the repulsive; his acts for the greater good are facilitated by his strength and fearlessness. .

So after the world tour I realized Conor is going to have a huge size advantage which he has had in most of his fights where he has overpowered all but one of his opponents. (That one being Nate Diaz) As the build…
