To both Caine and Chris SD those are pretty harsh reactions to someone's post who is engaging in a conversation and giving an opinion in an open forum. The discussion was on the skills of Steve Forte which I basically acknowledge and am in awe of Forte's skill but was just bringing up another cardman's skill that some may have overlooked in there talk (which was already going on before I gave my opinion). Keeping with the initial post I gave Forte his Kudos, but added to the topic for further discussion and not to have an opinion shot down. Sorry if that rubbed either of you the wrong way but no need to flame someone on their opinion. I would also assume that none of the aforementioned magicians need someone to defend their honor from people expressing their opinions about them either.


I'm never harsh, I can assure you I wrote that with a smile.
But, if you really want to make comparisons, Martin Nash is to Steve Forte what Sylvester Stallone is to Mike Tyson.


Really I would think that both Sylvester and Mike wouldn't be that good with a deck of cards Smile I mean it has to be hard to do a decent second deal with a pair of boxing gloves on. Anyway, thanks for clearing that up Chris, I guess I read more into your thread than was there and thought a light hearted discussion was taking a bad turn as has often happened in threads on this place lately, not necessarily this forum but some others I won't mention.

Anyways, everybody knows Batman is clearly superior to Superman.


Yes. Everyone will agree on that. Or they're wrong.

I personally think that Superman is better,he has stronger and faster fingers than Batman,you guys know how important they are in card magic;E.G. pinky break,top change an invisible pass,etc.


Go Superman.

Have you seen the Invisible Man's Invisible Deck routine? It's the best routine that I haven't seen.

Steve Forte vs. Ricky Jay vs. Martin Nash vs. Darwin Ortiz blah blah blah. After this maybe you guys could argue over which one of your dads would win in a fight, or better yet, if Guile could actually take Zangiff. Frankly, I never bought the whole "razor kick" idea (it's physically impossible).


It's interesting how many people ridicule such interesting topics like comparing and contrasting to of the greatest practitioners of our beloved craft. I don't know about you guys, but I love an intelligent, civilized discussion about the true greats. Instead of talking about a shift or a cut. To compare these discussions to comic books or who's dad would win in a fight is absurd.

Superman is to ECM what Batman is to Card Magic.

True, Zangiff is seven feet tall. How on planet earth can he be so nimble? I mean, a spinning pile driver?! That's physically impossible.

Spiderman and Superman acquired their abilities without merit. Batman, alone of the three, earned his stripes. But Forte has the best hands out of them all...
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

I imagine Ricky Jay would also not be interested in having an intelligent internet discussion of who is better than who.

Responding to the original poster, I also think Forte is super duper but Batman has cooler enemies.

You're wrong about that. Ricky Jay relishes the opportunity to compare and contrast the greats of all time. It's something he's been doing his whole life.
