Power-scaling between different Image Comics comicbook titles is generally unreliable.

Basically, with certain exception (such as the various titles directly overseen by Robert Kirkman, or Todd McFarlane, and respectively closely connect to the events of Invincible, or Spawn alone) each of them has a continuity that is only reasonably consistent with itself. The authors are sometimes allowed to use each other's characters, but the stories do not affect or reflect the other sections of Image comicbooks at all.

Erik Larsen, the author of Savage Dragon, once defined them as copy characters that live in the worlds of the other books, but that any potential crossovers simply mean that similar events happened in each world at once.
