Is there an actual source or is this one of those internet rumors that circulate around?

I think it was a tweet from early in the webcomic's life.


But if were still litigating how strong Saitama is (overwhelmingly) and why he is strong (because its funny) at this point then a surprising amount of people had the story just woosh right over their heads.

Like seeing a saitama punch coming your way and not seeing the kanji for death.

I kind of love the idea that Saitama just by chance happened upon the exact "cheat code" of life for becoming invincible. And that his genuine earnestness for being good, but overall apathy, let him not transform into a monster like most other people would.

I always liked to think of it as saitama being kind of weak and cruddy and standard training was all it took to push him to the brink of death and the edge of his ability and break his limiter

Yeah, but even before he started training he was strong enough to defeat the mighty Crablante, so he was basically Cloud Strife From the beginning.

I feel like his defeat of Crablante was more a matter of bravery and cunning than strength.

It was still a Tiger-level threat and he still got the poo poo beat out of him while doing it. So in his base form he was already at Mumen Rider levels of durability.

The bottom line is that Crablante had a weakness a fairly athletic normal person could exploit, though. Saitama didn't need to be superhuman then, and he probably wasn't.

Isn't Mumen Rider's level of durability about at "regular dude who cares a whole lot"?

Saitama got sent flying through the air by claws that could shatter concrete and didn't immediately get his face pulped into a bloody mess. That's pretty loving superhuman.

Mumen survived getting his face repeatedly smashed into concrete hard enough to shatter the concrete. Do that with a regular human and you'll just have a gorey mess of shattered bone and brain matter.

Mumen's also strong enough to beat a monster who was explicitly bullet proof in an audio drama.

Mumen obviously gains strength when a crowd cheers for him with all their heart.

Just enough to have his skull shatter concrete.

I'm waiting for what the next "big bad" is going to be after Garou, but the series seems to be following Season 1's formula in that it is serialized but no real over arching enemies.

I mean even most S ranks have trouble soloing a Dragon, though sheís probably still not strong enough to be S-rank.
