THOUGHT ROBOT IS SECOND TO MONITOR-MIND THE OVERVOID

Thought Robot (Cosmic Armor Superman). DC Comics.

Before the Thought Robot vs Mandrakk battle, Superman and company were stranded in Limbo. Indeed, it was the Final Crisis, and Monitrix Zillo Valla had recruited the super-champions of the multiverse.

To this end, their quest was to recover the Ultramenstruum, the substance of life. But, they had to stop Mandrakk first, the Dark Monitor who held the Ultramenstruum or Bleed.

Near Cosmic Midnight, Mandrakk’s forces closed in on Superman and company. While struggling to hold with their inoperative ship, Captain Adam unlocked his power.

With quantum superposition, Adam was able to fuse together two dualities: Superman and Ultraman. With their selves fused onto a higher plane of existence, the new being ascended to Nil or Heaven.

There, they became Thought Robot. At Cosmic Midnight, Cosmic Armor Superman faced the enemy of the DC multiverse: Mandrakk.

According to the legend of the Monitors, Thought Robot is a 4-D Doomsday Weapon whose sole purpose is to defeat the Ultimate Enemy. In effect, Thought Robot is moved by the story of Superman and can become as strong as needed in response to his enemy’s attack.

Consequently, Cosmic Armor Superman has the power of Reactive Evolution. As a Doomsday Weapon, Thought Robot is the being “of divine metals” that Monitor-Mind The Overvoid formed in order to protect the DC multiverse.1

Really, the character is second only to Monitor-Mind The Overvoid in importance and power.

OVERPOWERED, THOUGHT ROBOT CAN BREAK THE FOURTH WALL

In 'Final Crisis: Superman Beyond' (2009) #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall.
In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond (2009) #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall. DC Comics.

Originally, what struck fans was that Thought Robot was the most powerful version of Superman in DC continuity. As matter of fact, Thought Robot is among the few characters in comics that can Break The Fourth Wall.

In literature, drama or theater, this is a meta-fictional technique by which a given character is aware of the audience, the reader or the writer. Moreover, the character is usually depicted addressing the audience, reader or writer.

Related to this case, Thought Robot either addresses the Presence, or is aware of being a character in a comic. In the image above, Cosmic Armor Superman seems to be addressing the Writer, that is, Grant Morrison.

Moreover, this super power can be attributed in part to Clark Kent’s profession of journalism, which is to tell stories. In this case, the journalist becomes the story. Really, this is a very powerful super power, perhaps the greatest.

In this comparison, Thought Robot may be more powerful than Truth Incarnate Wonder Woman.

Moreover, Thought Robot is overpowered and possesses super powers at the level of the Hyperverse. In effect, he is a God or Abstract.

Some of Cosmic Armor Superman’s powers include: 4th wall breakage, plot manipulation, time manipulation, reactive evolution, berserker strength, flight, heat vision, reality warping, quantum manipulation.

PHILOSOPHICALLY, #THOUGHTROBOTISNECESSARY

Thought Robot (Cosmic Armor Superman). DC Comics.

Philosophically, #ThoughtRobotIsNecessary to the DC multiverse. In the mythology created by Grant Morrison, the Writer created the DC multiverse as a story. In that story, the Monitor-Mind the Overvoid is an outerversal being who represents DC comics itself.

However, because of his perfection, the Overvoid could not comprehend the significance of the concept “story.”1 Like a Deus Ex Machina, Thought Robot was built to protect the DC multiverse from the imperfection of story.

In my digital book Superman, The Greatest Story: How Art Deco Meets Plot Device, I argue that Cosmic Armor Superman actually functions as a Monitor. In fact, Morrison perceives the Monitors as angels, whose function it is to tell stories.

Doubly as a journalist and as Thought Robot, Superman functions as a storyteller. And what is the ultimate purpose of the storyteller in society: it is to preserve human civilization.

In a philosophical sense, #ThoughtRobotIsNecessary because stories are the blood of DC Comics and because he makes them intelligible to the Monitors, the Overvoid and a special person dear to Superman.

Perhaps, Thought Robot’s most impressive power. Here, a comic character becomes God, or perhaps, reveals metafiction.

Here, the commentary is that Superman and the DC multiverse are organic, living entities.

As a metafictional character, Cosmic Armor Superman can interface with the Writer. Here, on the page, his hand extends outside of it.

Literally, a comic character touches the Presence, the reader or the Writer. Below, you can find our Power Level Wiki for the feat and others.

THOUGHT ROBOT MANIPULATES THE STORY

In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond (2009) #2, Thought Robot prophesies stories will never end. DC Comics.

At the end of the battle, Thought Robot writes an inscription on his tomb. In Nil, it is a fitting celebration of 81 years of history.

Indeed, Grant Morrison seems to say that stories are enduring.

In fact, Thought Robot seemed to predict the state of the DC Universe after Dark Nights: Death Metal.

Really, read the end of the issue to find out Thought Robot’s “warning” to Mandrakk.2

At the end of the battle, Superman demonstrated that his energy projection is Nigh-Omnipotent. After Mandrakk kills Zillo Valla, the battle kicks into high gear.

With Superman on the ropes, bleeding, panting, Mandrakk presses on. Then, the voice of Ultraman helps him re-double his strength.

With multiple attacks, Thought Robot disarms Mandrakk. Finally, in a powerful blast of heat vision, Superman casts Mandrakk into the Overvoid.

Perhaps, one of the best finishing moves in comic battles. In fact, proving that Cosmic Armor Superman is beyond the DC multiverse!

Overpowered Beings: In ‘What If?’ Short Stories, Uatu The Watcher #BreaksTheFourthWall

 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Marvel For Fans

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

FROM THE UNIVERSE’S OLDER RACES, THE WATCHERS SWORE TO OBSERVE

In Original Sin (2014) #0, the Watchers brings nuclear power to the Prosilicans. Marvel Comics.

During the Silver Age, Marvel Comics introduced The Watcher in “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine!” In Fantastic Four (1963) #13, the Fantastic Four are on a mission to the Blue Area of the moon. In the issue, Mister Fantastic experiments on a rocket fragment.

Then, he decides to travel by rocket to the Blue Area of the moon where the fragment came. However, a Russian scientist in the Soviet Union named Ivan Kragoff, is on a mission to the moon. In fact, he has selected his three apes with him, Igor, Piotr and Miklho in order to replicate the Fantastic Four’s powers.

Predictably, the mission succeeds and the villains are granted super powers from cosmic rays. On the moon, the Fantastic Four and Ivan’s team battle. However, the clash is cut short by the first appearance of the Watcher.

After Claiming the Blue Area as his home, he reveals his race’s vow to not interfere in the affairs of alien races and banishes both teams to the ruined city where they battle for superiority.

Forward into the Modern Age, we learn the origin of the race of Watchers’ vow. In the early beginnings of the universe, the Watchers were a technologically advanced and benevolent race. In order to help the planet Prosilicus, Ikor proposed to bring nuclear power to the Prosilican race.

Tragically, the technology led to nuclear warfare and auto-genocide on Prosilicus. Horrified at the Prosilican incident, Ikor created a code of ethics for the race. Now known as the Watchers, the cosmic gods would observe and not interfere.

OVERPOWERED, UATU CAN RESIST AND KILL GALACTUS

In 'Super-Villain Classics' (1983) #1, we find out the origin of Galactus, the Destroyer of Worlds.
In Super-Villain Classics (1983) #1, we find out the origin of Galactus, the Destroyer of Worlds.

In terms of powers, Uatu has been said to be powerful enough to shake a galaxy. Really, the Watcher is a cosmic god who can manipulate cosmic energy on an incalculable scale. As matter of fact, he has been stated to resist the telepathic probes of Galactus, the Destroyer of Worlds.

Furthermore, in Super-Villain Classics (1983) #1, we learn Galactus’ origin story. After the destruction of the previous universe, the Sentience of the Universe protected Galan in a Cosmic Egg. With the birth of the Seventh Cosmos, or Earth-616 universe, Galactus came out of gestation.

In the early universe, the Watchers were among the oldest races. Ecce the Watcher observed the Star God’s emergence and sensed his evil and Cosmic Hunger. In fact, he was powerful enough to kill him. But, sworn to not interfere, he let Galactus depart in his starship.

Like Ecce, Uatu probably is powerful enough to kill a hungry or young Galactus. Notably, Uatu possesses the powers of telepathy, energy manipulation, teleportation, time travel, cosmic awareness, force field generation, flight and immortality on a Multiversal scale.

Incredibly, this power is called Breaking The Fourth Wall. Here, a comic character or literature character is aware of being part of a story or addresses the reader and audience. Really, this super power suggests the Watcher is an Outerversal being.

In The Galactus Trilogy, Watcher helps the Fantastic Four to stop Galactus. As matter of fact, the cosmic god revealed the heroes knowledge about Galactus’ homeworld, Taa II.

Importantly, Uatu knew the only way to stop the Devourer of Worlds was with an advanced technology from the solar system-sized homeworld. Namely, the Ultimate Nullifier.

In the battle Fantastic Four vs Galactus, the super-team was able to stop the end of the world and have Galactus depart with Uatu’s help.

POTENTIALLY, AN OUTERVERSAL BEING WHO #BREAKSTHEFOURTHWALL

THE ENIGMA FORCE CHOSE SPIDER-MAN

IvaN The UnStoppable

During the Copper Age, Marvel Comics greatly expanded Spider-Man‘s universe: a new love interest in Felicia Hardy, a new and great black costume and even, new powers. Over the years, Spider-Man’s super powers expanded. In Acts Of Vengeance: Spider-Man & The X-Men, the Enigma Force chooses Spider-Man as the new Captain Universe.

Though the story arc was temporary, it shook the status quo in an impressive way.

Post-Secret Wars, Spider-Man fought an increasing darkness from his alien symbiote. At a time when the hero had finally settled into his marriage with Mary Jane. When Peter least expected it, an accident with an extra-dimensional energy source at Empire State University gave him a serious power-up.

For a time, Peter was plagued by frequent spider-sense shocks and became Cosmic Spider-Man. Read our review to find out about this story arc.

OVERPOWERED, COSMIC SPIDER-MAN HAS SKYFATHER POTENTIAL

IvaN The UnStoppable

Notably, Spider-Man possesses the proportionate super strength, super speed, agility and senses of a spider. Usually, the hero is a Street Level or Team Wrecker in the Power Hierarchy. According to Essential Official Handbook of The Marvel Universe Vol. 2, Deluxe Edition, Spider-Man can lift 10 tons.

In Amazing Spider-Man (1989) #327, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased why he is a Class 100 powerhouse. In a battle against Magneto, the Champion of the Enigma Force effortlessly lifted a cruise ship.

Really, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased Skyfather potential. In fact, he showed the power of reality-warping as he created a lightning bolt by wishing.

Among his super powers are: Planetary Level super strength, super speed, nigh invulnerability, flight, super vision, telescopic vision, super hearing, matter manipulation, energy projection and energy absorption. Later, we will see why he may be #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero.

After seven years in the past, Molecule Man kills another version and an incursion eventually occurs. It is a chain reaction that causes a contraction in the multiverse. With each universe colliding with another, Earth is at the point of impact.

Though the Beyonders did not directly cause the incursion, they ultimately show how powerful their singularity is. As a living bomb, Molecule Man has the power to destroy the infinite Marvel multiverse.

Overpowered Beings: As Ion, #KyleRaynersWillpower Is Omnipotent (And First Appearance Green Lantern)

In 'Green Lantern' (1990) #150, Ion sees the timeline.
 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Variant Comics

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

KYLE RAYNER IS THE LAST GREEN LANTERN

In 'Green Lantern' (1994) #50, Kyle Rayner is chosen as the Last Green Lantern.
In Green Lantern (1994) #50, Kyle Rayner is chosen as the Last Green Lantern. DC Comics.

During Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight, Kyle Rayner first appeared. Particularly, the three-part story arc details the fall from grace of Hal Jordan into the cosmic being named Parallax.

In the story arc, Hal goes mad after Cyborg Superman orders the destruction of Coast City by Mongul, thanks to Warworld.

Then, he goes on a rampage murdering the Green Lantern Corps on his way to Oa. Soon, having destroyed the GL Corps, he quickly subdues Sinestro then proceeds to absorb the energy of the Central Power Battery.

Using their last energies, the Guardians sacrifice themselves to create and entrust Ganthet with the last Green Lantern power ring. Afterwards, the Guardian travels to Earth and encounters a struggling freelance artist by the name of Kyle Rayner.

Seriously, he entrusts Kyle with the ring and tells the young man to do what must be done. On that day, Kyle Rayner becomes the Last Green Lantern.

HOW KYLE RAYNER BECOMES ION

FINAL NIGHT

Nonetheless, the heroes succeed in defeating Parallax. Some time later, a new menace emerges that would threaten the very Earth’s existence. At the start of The Final Night, A Sun-Eater threatens to consume the sun and cause the destruction of New Earth.

Again, the heroes band together to stop the cataclysm. When a depowered Superman volunteers for a suicide mission to plant modules in the sun as it goes supernova. Yet, a young hero named Ferro recognizes Superman as a hero and decides to pilot the ship.

However, Hal Jordan as Parallax sacrifices himself by going into the supernova. Finally, he absorbs the supernova blast, channels it with his Oan energy then re-powers the yellow sun.

GREEN LANTERN: CIRCLE OF FIRE

During the event, Kyle fights a cosmic entity named Oblivion. As a result of his girlfriend Alex DeWitt’s murder, Kyle gave birth to the cosmic entity. Indeed, it is a product of Kyle’s rage and hatred out of his subconscious.

After defeating Oblivion, since the energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it is drawn to the residual Parallax energy in the sun. Later, it helps Kyle draw on the immense powers of Parallax and Oblivion.

Since Kyle’s ring has no yellow weakness and is formed from the energies of the Guardians of the Universe it is already very powerful!

GREEN LANTERN: THE POWER OF ION

In the story arc, Kyle has absorbed the energy of a neutron bomb that Grayven unleashed. Furthermore, Kyle now understands that his recent power boost is due to his feeding on the cosmic powers of Parallax and Oblivion from the sun.

Now the sun has a green spot and our GL’s life is about to change. In Green Lantern (2002) #145, Green Lantern fights Nero in order to claim the power. Ultimately, he is triumphant. In the heart of the sun, he bends to the power and becomes… Ion!

OVERPOWERED, GREEN LANTERN IS MERGED TO ION, AN EMOTIONAL ENTITY

Green Lantern: The Power Of Ion (2003). DC Comics.

From the beginning, the Ion entity existed as one of the Emotional Spectrum Entities. As matter of fact, Ion is the name given to the green Entity of Will.

Originally, Ion existed in the Central Power Battery, as the Entity that powered the green energy of willpower harvested by the Guardians of the Universe.

Importantly, it served as a protection against the yellow Emotional Entity of Fear, Parallax, which also existed in the Central Power Battery.

When Hal Jordan absorbs the Central Power Battery, both Parallax and Ion are freed. Both need a host in order to survive. For its part, Parallax fed on Hal Jordan’s fear.

Later, Ion would empower Kyle Rayner’s creativity and willpower. As Ion, Kyle becomes a god-like being though in order to safeguard his humanity, he eventually relinquishes the power.

BECOMING ION, #KYLERAYNER’S WILLPOWER IS OMNIPOTENT

In 'Green Lantern' (1990) #150, Ion sees the timeline.
Variant Comics

Generally, Ion is among DC’s overpowered beings. Among Ion’s list of powers are immortality, time manipulation, reality manipulation, energy projection, energy absorption, nigh omnipresence, flight, emotional manipulation, nigh omniscience, telepathy.

Since Kyle was able to re-build the Central Power Battery and resurrect the Guardians of the Universe as infants, he possesses nigh omnipotence on a Multiversal Scale. Potentially, he is able to restore all the Emotional Entities of the Emotional Spectrum.

HOW KYLE’S POWERS WORK

As Kyle explains to his girlfriend Jade, he is able to exist and work in different locations of the universe at the same time. Possibly, the Ion power works by unlocking Kyle’s creativity and allowing him to exercise his will without being bound by time and space.

In effect, Kyle is truly god-like and can potentially exist in all timelines and places of the DC multiverse at the same time. Another character who is able to realize such an effect is Doctor Manhattan though not with Kyle’s level of perfection and power.

In fact, in the last issue, Kyle claims he can change Parallax’s past without creating ripples in the timeline. And that, is nigh omnipotence!

In contrast, in Doomsday Clock, it is revealed that when Doctor Manhattan moved Alan Scott’s lantern six inches out of his reach, he altered the DC multiverse continuity leading to the New 52.

WHY ION IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING

AS ION, HE CLAIMS HE CAN CHANGE PARALLAX’S PAST WITHOUT ALTERING THE TIMELINE

In 'Green Lantern' (1990) #150, Ion sees the timeline.
In Green Lantern (1990) #150, Ion sees the timeline. DC Comics.

In Green Lantern (1990) #150, Ion attempts to change the timeline. Previously, Kyle’s godlike behavior has alarmed Superman and the JLA.

In a conversation, Superman reminds Kyle that the mission of the JLA is to inspire and to protect humanity, and not taking away its choices by solving its problems.

In the issue, Ion contemplates the past Green Lanterns in the timeline: Alan Scott, Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner.

Particularly, he thinks about Hal Jordan who became Parallax.

Then, he is interrupted by Hal Jordan who is now Spectre.

When the Spectre inquires about Kyle’s purpose, Ion claims he can prevent Parallax’s existence without altering the timeline.

Though this is merely a statement of power, it does suggest Ion is nigh omnipotent in willpower.

HIS CREATIVIY MAKES HIM OMNIPRESENT

In 'Green Lantern' (2002) #146, Ion is doing art work in his studio and feeding poor people in Uganda.

 In Green Lantern (2002) #146, Jade visits Kyle at his studio.

There, she finds out that the GL has been working for hours and has completed high-quality comics ahead of schedule. In fact, he has not slept.

Even more impressive, Kyle tells her that as Ion his creativity has been unlocked and he is able to exist in multiple places at once.

For example, he is working in his studio and at the same time, also feeding the poor in Uganda.

Definitely, a Cosmic-Level feat of Super Speed since light travels around the Earth at 0.1337 seconds.

And we know according to the uncertainty principle, electrons travel at the speed of light and can be at two places at the same time.

Thus, it would take FTL speed for instantaneous travel.

In order to locate his father who left him and his mother when young, he scans the DNA of every human on Earth.

Afterwards, it takes him about 10 minutes in order to identify the matching DNA.

Definitely, a godlike feat requiring an intelligence capable of memorizing the 2.1*1019 letters in the human genomes of the entire human population.

From Black Panther, Doomwar #1, we can calculate the energy of DNA replication to be 3.2*1032 J or 6*1022 bytes/s of intelligence.

Thus, an Inventor-Level of intelligence. Visit the Intelligence Scale for more information.

Overpowered Beings: Emperor Vulcan Is Crowned #TheMostPowerfulMutant

In "X-Men: Rise And Fall Of The Shi'Ar Empire," Vulcan fights the Shi'Ar Imperial Guard.
 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Variant Comics

IN POWER LEVEL

VULCAN IS AN OMEGA-LEVEL MUTANT

Vulcan.
Vulcan. Marvel Comics.

In the Modern Age, Vulcan debuted. Simply, he is the brother of Scott and Alex Summers. Strangely, he is a product of both science and institutional slavery. Early, Corsair and pregnant Katherine Summers were abducted by D’Ken, ruler of the Shi’ar Empire. To save both mother and child, Corsair escaped. However, Katherine was killed though the child survived.

Forcibly, the child was removed from her body and grown in an Incubator-Accelerator. To this end, the device was used to breed new slaves to adolescence. Send to Earth to join the Emperor’s hand on Earth, the teenager escaped. There, he was found by Moira McTaggart. Soon, she would educate him on his powers.

Unfortunately, the teenager had no recollection of his past. In fact, he claimed to be Gabriel though he took the codename Kid Vulcan. After an encounter with Professor X, Gabriel learned he was Cyclops’ brother. Soon, he joined the X-Men. Along with Moira’s students; namely, Petra, Darwin and Sway they embarked on mission to rescue the original X-Men from Krakoa. Though the X-Men were rescued, there was a price. In fact, Gabriel and members of his team apparently died.

After the apparent deaths of the team, Cyclops returned to Professor Xavier in a hysterical state, blaming himself for their deaths. The Professor decided it was best for all involved if he altered Scott’s memories to forget about Vulcan and his team, to spare everyone the agony of their loss. A new team was assembled and successfully rescued the original X-Men from Krakoa.

Vulcan and Darwin were launched into space along with the Krakoa landmass by Polaris and remained inert until years later, when the massive backlash of power resulting from M-Day awakened Vulcan.

-Gabriel Summers, Marvel Database

WHY HE IS AN OMEGA-LEVEL MUTANT

In X-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #1, Vulcan returns to Earth. In an attempt to locate Professor X missing after House of M, Emma Frost uses Cerebra. Surprisingly, she locates an omega-level mutant and a NASA space-shuttle in re-entry on Earth. Definitely, since Cerebra has been used to identify mutant signatures, it is an indication of Vulcan’s overall power level.

OVERPOWERED, VULCAN HAS POWER OVER THE ENTIRE EM SPECTRUM

In 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' (2009) #14, Adam Warlock states Vulcan is an Omega Level mutant.
In Guardians Of The Galaxy (2009) #14, Adam Warlock states Vulcan is an Omega Level mutant. Marvel Comics.

Really, Vulcan is overpowered. As an Omega-Level mutant, Vulcan has vast energy projection powers. In fact, his powers extend over the electromagnetic spectrum. In their encounter, the mutant absorbed Adam Warlock‘s magical powers. Effectively, rendering him near powerless. Indeed, Adam Warlock was terrified and confirmed Vulcan is an Omega-Level mutant.

Among Vulcan’s powers are vast energy projection and manipulation, energy absorption, flight at subluminal speed, super strength, energy constructs and telekinesis, power suppression, energy detection and regeneration. In fact, Vulcan possesses these powers at least at a Stellar-Level. Later, we will see what happens when his powers are unleashed against alien races in conquest.

BECOMING #THEMOSTPOWERFULMUTANT, VULCAN CROWNED HIMSELF SHI’AR EMPEROR

Vulcan marries Deathbird.
Vulcan marries Deathbird. Then, crowns himself Shi’ar Emperor. Marvel Comics.

In X-Men: Deadly Genesis, Professor X states Vulcan is actually one of the most powerful mutants. On Earth, Vulcan meets the X-Men for the first time. In their last battle, the villain is able to take on the X-Men team. Including withstand an all-out Cyclops’ optic blasts and an uppercut from Colossus. In the end, Vulcan ends the fights with a wholesale electric blast that shocks the X-Men.

During Rise and Fall of The Shi’ar Empire, Gabriel proves he is #TheMostPowerfulMutant. Through planning, study, deceit and superior power, Vulcan becomes D’Ken’s second in command. Soon, he captures Professor X to avenge the telepath’s deception early on.

On the M’Kraan Crystal’s homeworld, Professor X is imprisoned. On the day of his wedding to Deathbird, Emperor D’Ken plans to execute the Professor. But not if the X-Men and the Starjammers can do anything about it. In a civil war, the Shi’ar Empire is divided between D’Ken and Lilandra factions. When the X-Men arrive, they side with Lilandra.

However, after dealing with Charles Xavier, Vulcan actually betrays Emperor D’Ken. In a powerful blast, he incinerates the Emperor’s face. Then, by right of blood, combat and succession, he crowns himself Shi’ar Emperor. Really, a powerful statement!

In 'X-Men: Deadly Genesis' (2005) #1, Vulcan has stopped Rachel Summers' telepathy.
In X-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #2, Vulcan has stopped Rachel Summers’ telepathy. Marvel Comics.

In X-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #2, Vulcan proves his telepathy can affect physical systems. Notably, Rachel Summers as Marvel Girl, is one of the most powerful psionics in Marvel. At full potential, she can tap into the Phoenix Force. In the issue, Vulcan was able to stop current in her brain, effectively turning off her telepathy.

Since Rachel Summers has seemingly infinite telepathic potential, the feat is likely Infinite in Energy Projection.

ENERFY PROJECTION FEAT: INFINITE

Energy Projection: Infinite 100%

EMPEROR VULCAN CAN SURVIVE BLACK BOLT’S SONIC SCREAM

In 'War of Kings' (2009) #2, Vulcan survives Bllack Bolt's point-blank scream.
In War of Kings (2009) #6, Vulcan survives Black Bolt’s sonic scream. Marvel Comics.

In War of Kings, the Shi’Ar Empire attacks the Kree Empire. In a catastrophic finale, Emperor Vulcan battles Emperor Black Bolt.

During the battle, both kings appear evenly matched. On the ropes, Black Bolt unleashes his sonic scream at point-blank range. As a result, Vulcan’s skin is burned to a crisp.

Before Black Bolt’s T-Bomb can explode, Crystal appears with Lockjaw to render the Terrigen crystals inert. Suddenly, Vulcan tackles Blackagar. Amazingly, he survived.

Before Black Bolt can be teleported, the T-Bomb explodes. In its place, is a rift in space-time called the Fault.

VULCAN IS SO POWERFUL HE OVERLOADS CEREBRA, KNOCKING OUT EMMA FROST

In 'X-Men: Deadly Genesis' (2005) #1, Vulcan's arrival to Earth overloads Cerebra, knocking out Emma Frost.
In X-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #1, Vulcan’s arrival to Earth overloads Cerebra, knocking out Emma Frost. Marvel Comics.

Since Cerebra can locate the mutants on Earth, it can indicate Vulcan’s power level. If at the time, there were 198 mutants, we can state that the Energy Projection required to overload Cerebra is Planetary-Level. Since Vulcan is an Omega-Level mutant, it is likely that his Energy Projection in X-Men: Deadly Genesis is at least Multi-Planetary or Stellar.

Because of Gabriel’s mastery of the EM spectrum, we can assume he has the potential for an Infinite-Level of Energy Projection. In fact, due to the requirement for infinite mass in order to reach the speed of light.

Multi-Planetary 58%

VULCAN TAKES ON THE SHI’AR IMPERIAL GUARD

In "X-Men: Rise And Fall Of The Shi'Ar Empire," Vulcan fights the Shi'Ar Imperial Guard.

In the story arc, Vulcan takes on Gladiator and the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. To this end, he plans to take down the Shi’ar Empire in order to avenge himself. In fact, the fight shows why Gabriel is such a dangerous foe. Indeed, his combination of ruthlessness, strategy, energy projection and durability prove more than a match for the Guard. However, when the mutant meets Gladiator, the battle soon turns around to the Imperial Guard’s favor.

Overpowered Beings: Super-Charged With The Speed Force, Barry Allen Is #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse

In 'DC Universe' (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis.
 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Variant Comics

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

BARRY ALLEN IS #THEANGELOFTHEDCMULTIVERSE

In 'DC Universe' (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis.
In DC Universe (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis. DC Comics.

To begin, Barry Allen was always destined for great things. In Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox [Blu-ray], the animated film begins with Nora Allen and her son, Barry. When their car breaks down, Nora teaches Barry about the Serenity prayer: “accepting the things that can’t be changed, having the courage to change those that can, and have wisdom to know the difference.”

Fans of The Flash: Season 1, know Barry’s mother was murdered when he was a boy. In fact, the time-traveling and archnemesis Reverse-Flash was the one responsible for her murder. Steadily, Flash has been gaining power-ups every season and adding muscle! However, in the comic medium, the superhero is on another level.

In our article, we choose Barry Allen as “TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse.” Why is that?

BARRY ALLEN DISCOVERED THE DC MULTIVERSE

Notably, the concept of the DC multiverse important to continuity was introduced in Flash (1961) #123, titled, “The Flash Of Two Worlds. Importantly, the issue established that Barry Allen (Earth-One) and Jay Garrick (Earth-Two) existed on two parallel Earths existing in the same space but vibrating at different frequencies. From there, stories featuring different versions of the same hero or different teams were understood as happening on parallel Earths.

BARRY ALLEN RETURNED TO PROTECT THE DC MULTIVERSE IN FINAL CRISIS

Perhaps, revealing Barry’s true manifest destiny. After his heroic sacrifice in Crisis On Infinite Earths, Barry returned with renewed purpose. So, who had a hand in the Flash’s return? The Monitors? The New Gods? The Source? As matter of fact, it was Zoom who zipped the Flash out of the Speed Force. In DC Universe (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis. In the issue, Barry states he sees the light of heaven, darkness and the DC multiverse.

BARRY CREATED THE POST-FLASHPOINT DC MULTIVERSE

Notably, Flashpoint may have been the most important DC comic of the 2010s. Indeed, within a decade, it has been adapted to The Flash TV series and is the basis for the upcoming Flash movie. What makes it so important is how the personal decisions of a single character can completely alter reality. When Barry went back in time to prevent his mother’s murder, he created an alternate timeline where she was alive. Though, at the end of the series, Flash has to sacrifice what he holds most dear to restore the DC multiverse. Inadvertently, his actions led to the New 52.

OVERPOWERED, FLASH IS A SPEED FORCE CONDUIT

In 'Crisis On Infinite Earths' (1985) #8, Flash time travels to the past to destroy the Anti-Monitor's antimatter canon, sacrificing himself.
In Crisis On Infinite Earths (1985) #8, Flash time travels to the past to destroy the Anti-Monitor’s antimatter canon, sacrificing himself. DC Comics.

Really, Flash is one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe. After being struck by lightning, Flash became a Speed Force conduit. In the DC Universe, the Speed Force is a dimension in the Sphere of the Gods, beyond the DC multiverse. From the Speed Force, speedsters are powered with an infinite reservoir of kinetic and potential energies.

Moreover, it appears Barry’s limit is the speed of light. As Flash, he is able to break dimensional barriers, race photons and molecules, react in attoseconds, steal speed, enter the Speed Force and escape, enter into the unknowable realm of the Source. Furthermore, Barry can generate lightning, travel in space, fly, negate the Anti-Life Equation, turn invisible, phase, heal rapidly and is capable of heightened mental processes.

All these super powers put Flash at the Multiversal-Level with infinite Energy Projection potential.

WHY BARRY ALLEN IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING

BARRY ONCE RAN SO FAST THAT HE ENTERED THE SOURCE

In 'Super-Team Family' (1978) #15, Flash ran so fast that he entered the Source.
In Super-Team Family (1978) #15, Flash ran so fast that he entered the Source. DC Comics.

In reality, Flash may be a cosmic being or a god! During the Bronze Age, Barry appeared in a New Gods story. In short, the New God Orion needs help! After falling into unconsciousness, Orion has been growing in size. Now, his size threatens the sun.

In his prescience, Highfather commissions Metron, Lightray and Flash to the Source. According to legend, no god may enter the Source or he may die. In truth, these words ring true. From Apokolips, Darkseid learns of the mission and commissions Hagdar the Mad to stop them.

When the Super-Team arrives at the Promethean Galaxy, they are stopped by Darkseid’s minions. However, understanding the Source’s prophecy, Metron sends Flash forth. Only Flash is fast enough to enter the Source.

Later, he mysteriously comes back with a machine that can help Orion.

BARRY ENTERED THE SPEED FORCE RUNNING

In 'The Flash: Rebirth' (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force.
In The Flash: Rebirth (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force. DC Comics.

In The Flash: Rebirth (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force. In the issue, Barry’s speed force aura has been contaminated. Now, he is dying.

In Fallville, the JLA and JSA have put Barry in a containment chamber. To this end, they plan to disconnect him from the Speed Force in order to save his life. And Iris has come to be his “lightning rod.” Suddenly, in bursts of lightning, Barry busts out. With Superman in hot pursuit. Nevertheless, outpacing the Man of Steel, Flash has a plan. As matter of fact, Barry plans to enter the Speed Force in order to save everyone.

At top speed, Barry stretches past the boundaries of the universe. As he moves past the speed of light, he remembers Iris, Wally, his death and his trial. As he enters the Speed Force, he struggles to remember Iris. There, he is greeted by a voice that reminds him of Iris and his name. Soon, he meets Johnny Quick and Max Mercury.

Definitely, a feat requiring a Multiversal-Level of super speed with infinite Energy Projection.

In Who Is Faster Than The Flash? & 9 Other Questions About The Speedster, Answered, David Harth talks about the two Flashes: Barry Allen and Wally West. Perhaps, one of the two Flashes’ greatest feats occurs in Final Crisis. In Final Crisis (2009) #7, Barry and Wally outrace the Black Racer and the radion bullet Darkseid fired 50 years in the past.

As a New God, the Black Racer is the embodiment of Death. Moreover, he has been stated to be the fastest being in existence. In fact, none may outrun Death.

When Darkseid fires the radion bullet at Superman, Barry and Wally arrive. Together, they outrun the Black Racer and the radion bullet vibrating through Darkseid. Then, Black Racer claims Darkseid’s soul.

Here, Barry actually outran a Celestial or abstract being. Talk about an angelic feat of eternal proportions!

AS GOD OF DEATH, HE KILLED DARKSEID

In 'Justice League' (2015) #44, Barry the God of Death kills Darkseid.
In Justice League (2015) #44, Barry the God of Death kills Darkseid. DC Comics.

From #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse, Barry became the God of Death. In Darkseid War, Darkseid and Anti-Monitor battled on Prime Earth. Namely, their battle was over Grail, Darkseid’s daughter. In addition, the God of evil sought the Anti-Life Equation.

Between them, the Justice League was caught in the crosshairs. In order to turn the tide, Darkseid summoned Black Racer. However, his plan backfired. Sinisterly, Anti-Monitor fused Black Racer to Flash. Now, Flash became the New God of Death. With the Anti-Life Equation, Mobius blasted Darkseid as the God of Death vibrated through his body.

Perhaps, one of the most talked-about moments in the New 52. Definitely, Barry Allen always performs impressive feats in times of crisis. Though the New God of Death, he proved why he was once #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse.

In Detective Comics (1955) #225, Dr. Erdel accidentally teleports J’onn J’onnz to Earth. DC Comics.

During the Silver Age, Martian Manhunter debuted. Over the years, Martian Manhunter’s super powers expanded. In The Brave And The Bold (1960) #28, Martian Manhunter joins the new Justice League of America. In later stories, Martian Manhunter was often a replacement for the Silver Age Superman.

Post-Crisis, the 1988 four-issue limited series Martian Manhunter established his modern origin: Martian Manhunter is the last survivor from Mars. Teleported to Earth by Dr. Erdel’s experimental beam, he became a champion on Earth. In fact, J’onn J’onnz was displaced in time and space. Indeed, the Martian race has been dead for years.

OVERPOWERED, J’ONN J’ONNZ HAS THE POWER TO MOVE A PLANET

In JLA (2003) #75, Superman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter pull the Earth back into orbit with the magic lasso.
In JLA (2003) #75, Superman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter pull the Earth back into orbit with the magic lasso. DC Comics.

Notably, Martian Manhunter has been called the Swiss-Army Knife of the Justice League. Regularly, he serves as the League’s telepathic link, strategist, advisor and detective. In fact, Martian telepathy has been able to scan minds, repair damage, contact over vast distances and enter into mental battles. Indeed, J’onn is able to effect his super powers on a vast scale. Even, to the Planetary-Level.

In JLA (2003) #75, Martian Manhunter showcases why he is one of the strongest beings in the DC Universe. In the issue, the Earth is pulled out of orbit by the Atlantean villain Gamemnae. With a spell, Manitou Raven increases the size of Wonder Woman’s lasso. Heroically, Superman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter pull the Earth back into orbit with the magic lasso.

Really, Martian Manhunter has too many super powers as a result of Martian physiology: Super strength, super speed, nigh invulnerability, flight, heat vision, EM vision, telescopic vision, microscopic vision, super hearing, super breath, regeneration, invisibility, phasing, shapeshifing, telepathy, telekinesis, matter absorption. Later, we will see what happens when his powers are unleashed against his friends.

BECOMING #AWEAPONOFMASSDESTRUCTION, J’ONN EVOLVED INTO FERNUS THE BURNING

In JLA: Trial By Fire, Martian Manhunter becomes Fernus The Burning. On multiple occasions, Martian Manhunter has been stated to be the most powerful being in the DC Universe. In fact, the Burning Martians were so powerful that the Guardians of The Universe had to genetically suppress them. Thanks to his love for Scorch, J’onn J’onnz overcame his fire weakness. Indeed, he became Fernus who was so powerful that it took the entire JLA to match up to him.

Only Plastic Man was able to take him on mano-a-mano since his brain was no longer organic. Sinisterly, the Burning Martian needed fire and pain from human extinction in order to spawn. Using his love for Scorch, he detonated the nuclear weapons on Earth. Desperately, the JLA managed to destroy them. However, Superman failed to destroy the last one. Catastrophically, the weapon exploded in Chongjin, North Korea.

In JLA (2003) #89, Flash (Wally West) was able to save the 532,000 inhabitants of the city in a fraction of a second.

Fortunately, the JLA manage to escape the attack. Soon, they regroup at the Fortress of Solitude. There, Superman plans to use the Phantom Zone Projector. First, the Leaguers must check on the White Martians imprisoned there after Terror Incognita.

Shockingly, the Leaguers find Fernus with the butchered corpses of White Martians. Behind Fernus, they are floating in the Phantom Zone. Though the genocide occurred off-panel.

Per our calculations, Fernus performed a Galaxy-Level feat of Energy Projection.

A propos, in an editorial, Michael Granger at You Don’t Read Comics shares his personal experience regarding Blue Marvel as #BlackSuperman and racism:

Some people love street-level heroes, Batman, Black Panther, Daredevil, and Spiderman, and so on. But my heart always had a place for the big heavy hitters, and finally, here was one that looked like me, who experienced racism, and whom I related to directly. As someone whose parents and uncles were raised in the Jim Crow south, who attended a predominantly white high school, and as a soldier, I couldn’t help but relate to the character.
