Wait, why *can't* you compare universes? They are all based on the same
assumptions (Earth, Earth physics, humans, etc.) so any tech/mechanical
comparisons can be made based on where the new, bullshit physics go
forward from what is currently known. That is, provided stats are given
for the differing Gundam armors and weapons. Comparing the skill levels
of the different universe *pilots* is another matter but if both of the
universes give power to weight ratios, fuel consumptions (of their fake
fuel sources), weapon ranges and effects on materials, etc., it should be
pretty straightforward to compare. You could compare Macross to Gundam
to Evangelion physically that way. Any magic/ESP/"hero" skills would not
compare, of course, since those are the whims of the writers/directors.
