For those wondering I own and have read all of the original saint seiya manga a few times. Pardon me for not believing that a series that has only big bold statements and not a lot of feats isn't as impressive as people claim. Hell, those statements are generally contradicted by other statements in series. Also their atomic level strikes have limits based on how tough the object is. Good case and point: Poseidon's pillars. It's not that they couldn't be destroyed by force they just needed to go beyond Gold Saints abilities. Either use a Libra Weapon or travel FTL which is what Bill's can also do. The point is the tougher the object the harder it is for those strikes to work. A gold saint got taken out by burning up in the atmosphere so they're not too tough. Armor maybe but what's stopping bill's from poking one in the forehead and killing him. He's faster and has shown far more legit force. Hax is great but not if they're too slow to do it. Doesn't generally happen but in this case it works.
