WHY MAGNETO IS THE MASTER OF MAGNETISM

As Homo superior, Magneto is the next phase of human evolution. Originally, the master of magnetism represents the mutant population which by accidents of evolution has been granted super powers. Magneto‘s mastery of magnetism is the super power to control, manipulate and shift magnetic fields on a planetary to solar system scale. In the past, the mutant powerhouse was once classified as an Alpha Level mutant. This has been changed to an Omega Level mutant. In fact, what is an Omega Level mutant?

Read on!

The term, initially “Omega Level Mutant Abilities” was seemingly used at first by Fred Duncan, and quickly adopted by Charles Xavier to define some of his first students, and was described in those terms: “Yet what he called Omega (the last) he meant as regards to an “ultimate threat,’ while I simply prefer to think of such mutant abilities as unlimited potential.

-“Mutant Power Level Classification”, Marvel Database

In other words, what makes Magneto an Omega Level mutant is power without limit. In fact, Magneto has been stated on several occasions to be the most powerful mutant on Earth.1,2,3 On another occasion, he has been called the most powerful being on Earth.4

PHOENIX IS MAGNETO’S RIVAL

In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, Magneto defeats Phoenix and Wolverine. Photo/Marvel Comics

In early X-men stories, the X-men regularly met Magneto as their foe. In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, the X-men return to Mesmero’s carnival trailer to find… Magneto. Eager to even the score with the X-Men, Magneto systematically subdues each member. Phoenix intervenes during the fight, and Magneto quickly defeats her by siphoning her Phoenix flame. Clearly, it has been stated that Magneto’s power rivals Phoenix’s.5 In Marvel continuity, Professor X and Magneto have been shown to match and defeat the Phoenix in duels.

In ‘New X-Men’ (2004) #150, the Omega Level mutant faces a resurrected Phoenix. During the battle, Jean Grey has the upper hand though Magneto is initially protected by his helmet from Phoenix’s telepathy. Finally, Magneto attacks Phoenix with a planetary electromagnetic pulse, giving her a heart attack. Both Omega Level mutants die: Phoenix dies while Magneto seemingly dies at the hand of Wolverine.

It appears Phoenix is Magneto’s limit as an Omega Level mutant. This means Magneto’s powers can at least match Phoenix’s at the Solar System Level. Of course, Phoenix has been classified as a Multiversal being, Beyond Omega Level.

Super Power: True Form Darkseid Can Destroy The DC Multiverse

SUPER POWER

Comics Explained

IN SUPERVILLAINS

IN THE MULTIVERSITY MAP, THERE IS ONLY ONE DARKSEID

The Multiversity map. AP Photo/DC Comics.

From a thread on Quora, there is an explanation about the Multiversity map:

Darkseid is a Multiversal being.

In DC Comics the Multiverse is made up of spheres.

The center of the Multiverse is the Rock of Eternity (nexus of all magic in the Multiverse) and the House of Heroes.

Then we got the Bleed. The Bleed is split between two layers. Upper and lower.

In the Upper layer you got the 52 Main Universes.

In the Lower layer you got a near infinite number of universes. Each universe exploring all the timelines that could were, could be, and still can be. So a really unimaginable number of universes.

The Barrier that splits all those Universes from the Sphere of the Gods (where Darkseid lives) is the Speed Force. The Sphere of the Gods envelopes all those universes I mentioned before.

And for those gods a universe can be as big as a sphere you can hold in your hand, or a bubble you can pop.

Above that Sphere theres the Monitor Sphere, home of the Prime Monitor that is the one that decides which universe is risen to the upper layer of the Bleed, when a main universe is destroyed.

-Is Darkseid a multiversal being (one being existing in all multiverses at the same time) or a single being who has different versions of himself throughout the multiverse?, Quora

AVATAR CREATION

In 'New Gods' (1997) #15, an avatar of Darkseid appears in the Source Wall.

In ‘New Gods’ (1997) #15, Darkseid and Highfather are trapped on the Source Wall. In order to communicate with Vykin the Black, Darkseid sends an avatar of himself. Each avatar possesses a fraction of Darkseid’s nigh-infinite power.

SPHERE OF THE GODS

Because Darkseid lives in the Sphere of the Gods, beyond the DC multiverse, there is only one true form Darkseid. Though since Final Crisis, there have been multiple origins of Darkseid when the multiverse was reborn, the other versions of Darkseid that have entered the DC multiverse, are merely avatars. In “What is Darkseid’s True Form?”, Fiction Horizon goes over the concept of avatars.

In The Multiversity Guidebook, the Highfather, also a New God and Darkseid’s brother, states that each reality – past, present and future – has its own version (avatar) of Darkseid. This means that Darkseid is actually an omnipresent, non-corporeal being fragmented so that he can be present in every possible reality. As far as we know, only actual multiversal deities (The Presence in DC Comics and The One Above All in Marvel) and Dr. Manhattan have these abilities, which would put Darkseid – his true form, that is – very high on the list of the most powerful beings in the history of comic books.

DOOMSDAY AND SUPERMAN HAVE DEFEATED AVATARS OF DARKSEID

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey’ (1994) #1, Cyborg Superman guides Doomsday to Apokolips who arrives by cargo ship. Programmed by Cyborg Superman, Doomsday destroys Apokolips’ army. Eventually, Darkseid must take direct action and intervene. During the battle, Doomsday delivers a painful beatdown on Apokolips’ monarch. Though there is debate that the Darkseid version Doomsday defeated was an avatar, writer Dan Jurgens seemed to confirm otherwise.

Super Power: Poison Ivy’s Control Of Plants And Vines Is The Effect Of Poisoning

POISON IVY HAS POISON IN HER CELLS

In 'Batman/Green Arrow: The Poison Tomorrow' (1992), Pamela Isley is stated to have enough poison to kill a regiment.

Poison Ivy is one of the deadliest femme fatales in the DC Universe. Her super power is the ability to mystically control plant life for a variety of purposes. How do her powers work?

Read on!

Chlorokinesis(Post-Crisis only): Semi-mystical connection to the plant world through a force called the Green. She was able to manipulate and animate plants, using roots to form supports for a tunnel. She controlled an entire tree to come down on Clayface, ensnaring him in its branches. She once brought a whole skyscraper down with giant vines.

Toxikinesis(Post-Crisis only): A deliberate overdose of plant and animal based toxins into her blood stream that make her touch deadly. Ivy can create the most potently powerful floral toxins in Gotham City. Often these are secreted from her lips and administered via a kiss. They come in a number of varieties, from mind controlling drugs to instantly fatal necrotics. Her skin is toxic as well, although contact with it is usually not fatal.

Pamela Isley (New Earth), DC Database

WHAT IS CHLOROKINESIS?

IMAGINE YOUR CELLS POISONED WITH CHLOROPHYLL

Pre-Crisis and Post-Crisis, Pamela Isley fell in love and ended up betrayed. In Post-Crisis continuity, she was a test subject in one of Doctor Jason Woodrue’s experiments. The experiments were torturous, and Pamela was nearly killed twice. Eventually, she ended in the hospital for six months and a change in her physiology happened.

Toxins in her bloodstream made her touch deadly and immune to all poisons, viruses, bacteria, and fungi. She also gained the ability to produce pheromones that she could use to seduce men into doing her bidding. Unfortunately, the results of these experiments also left her unable to have children, and she has treated her plants as her children ever since.

Enraged at her betrayal by a man, Isley suffered violent mood swings. She later caused a boyfriend to have a car accident by bringing about a massive fungal-overgrowth in his lungs. Isley then left Seattle, eventually settling down in Gotham City.

Pamela Isley (New Earth), DC Database

In a terrorist attempt, Pamela Isley threatened to release deadly spores into the air in Gotham City. She became known as Poison Ivy.

As Poison Ivy, her chlorokinetic cells are filled with toxins that render her touch poisonous. It is possible that her cells are filled with a toxic version of chlorophyll, allowing her control over plant life.

IN ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ #4, POISON IVY SEES THROUGH THE GREEN ON A CITY-WIDE SCALE

HOW POWERFUL IS POISON IVY?

In Feat: Batman, Batman: Gotham Knights #64′, Bruce Wayne synthesizes an anti-toxin to render Poison Ivy human. Poison Ivy has 50 trillion cells in her body which are chlorokinetic and thus photosynthesize. In order to revert Poison Ivy to her human form, Batman had to revert her chlorokinetic cells to human cells. The change involved an energy projection of 1.3*10^16 Joules of biochemical energy. This corresponds to a Continent Level of Energy Projection.

IN ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’ (1987) #35, POISON IVY STATES SHE HAS ENOUGH POISON IN HER NAILS TO KILL AN ELEPHANT

Poison Ivy has enough poison in her cells to kill an elephant. From this feat, we can calculate the amount of poison in Poison Ivy’s cells: 2.3617174*10^13 Joules of energy. This is a Continent Level of Energy Projection.

Super Power Explained: Is Magneto’s Mastery Of Magnetism Stellar or Solar System?

SUPER POWER

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

Magneto is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe. He is an enemy of the X-Men and an enemy of humanity. Magneto has on multiple occasions, attempted to destroy the human race in order to champion the cause of mutants.

Magneto is known as the Master of Magnetism and an Omega Level mutant. What is Magneto’s super power called Magnetism?

Read on!

Magnetokinesis: Magneto has comprehensive control over all forms of magnetism and utilizes that control to manipulate any metal and achieve a variety of effects. He recently proved able to effectively hold together the headless form of a Celestial. Magneto can manipulate an entire planet’s electromagnetic field and once even pulled back the giant metallic ‘bullet’ where Kitty Pryde was trapped inside, which was at least a few light-years away from Earth, though these are tasks that require great effort on his part. Magneto’s power is comparable with Phoenix’s, he has harnessed magnetism to stop armies, raise islands from ocean floors, move mountains, change the course of rivers, and threaten to devastate the world with floods and earthquakes.

Max Eisenhardt (Earth-616), Marvel Database

Because the Phoenix consumes stars, and Magneto matches her Power Level, it may seem that Magneto’s Power Level is Solar System+.

Let’s dig our comics!

‘X-MEN’ #112

In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, Magneto uses the super power of Magnetism to match the Phoenix’s cosmic power. Magneto shapes the Earth’s magnetosphere to create a “bottle-effect” around Phoenix, siphoning away her cosmic power.1 Magneto defeats Phoenix. However, this was a Phoenix that was growing in power.

During the ‘Dark Phoenix’ (1980) saga, Phoenix is driven insane by the fires of life and death, and causes the near extinction of the planet D’Bari by consuming its sun. This Power Level is definitely Solar System+.

In 'X-Men' (1980) #135, Phoenix consumes the D'Bari star causes the near extinction of the D'Bari.
In ‘X-Men’ (1980) #135, Phoenix consumes the D’Bari star causes the near extinction of the D’Bari. Photo/Marvel Comics.

At the end of the saga, Phoenix was killed by committing suicide. Of course, Phoenix ultimately resurrected and it turned out that the Phoenix is actually a cosmic firebird Multiversal in Power Level. Nevertheless, In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, Magneto was able to match the Phoenix’s power to be Solar System+ Power Level.

HOW POWERFUL IS MAGNETO?

In ‘Super Power Explained: How Smart Is Iron Man?’, we looked at Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge Armor. In ‘AvX: Vs’ #1, Magneto demonstrated he can siphon the magnetic power of nearby planets in the solar system. Magneto demonstrated at least a Stellar+ Power Level.

Since Magneto displayed Stellar+ power in his battle against Iron Man and was able to match Phoenix’s power, he is at least Stellar+ in Power Level. This indicates Magneto’s higher end power is Solar System+ since he can siphon the energy of nearby planets in the solar system and defeat Phoenix before she became Dark Phoenix.

As a result, Magneto’s Mastery of Magnetism extends to the solar system and is Solar System+ Level.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

IRON MAN INVENTED THE BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR

Iron Man is one of the smartest beings in the Marvel Universe. He regularly comes up with advanced technology, battle plans, scientific discoveries and yes… Iron Man Hulkbuster Armors. In order to estimate how intelligent Iron Man may be, let’s look at an Iron Man Armor upgrade: The Bleeding Edge Armor.

Read on!

Deemed as “bleeding edge,” this armor was created as Tony Stark essentially reinvented himself and the armor. Being called an upgrade to Extremis by Mr. Fantastic, Tony Stark corrected this comment by saying, “Nah – this is what comes next.” It was the first armor powered entirely by repulsor technology via Stark’s new device, the R.T. node.

[…]

This entire armor is kept inside Tony’s body until mentally commanded, at which point it manifests itself as the Iron Man Armor. The armor is made up of Nano-Machines that can now be commanded to turn into any type of structure upon Stark’s skin. For example, the nano-machines can turn into clothes, other armors, or even different beings completely, by having the nano-machines change their properties into whatever Stark wants them to be. It can also dissociate to transform into the Iron Man armor whenever Stark wishes. The armor and Stark’s own transhuman body are powered by the high-yield R.T. node mounted in his chest. The high output of the node has greatly augmented Stark’s intelligence and provided him with superhuman-level multitasking and learning capabilities.

“Iron Man Armor Model 37, Marvel Database

WHAT IS THE R.T. NODE?

The R.T. node is Iron Man’s discovery of fusion power, which is the process that powers the sun. In effect, Iron Man called the Bleeding Edge Armor a “man-made star.”1

Read on!

The Repulsor Tech node, as called on Earth-616, is a type of fusion power which derived from the Repulsor Technology of the Iron Man suit created by Tony Stark. It can be used as a source for clean energy as well as a powerful bomb, further modifications made along Rand Industries discarding the second possible application.

Arc Reactor, Marvel Database

Tony Stark discovered a source of clean energy as well as the potential to make powerful thermonuclear bombs.

HOW STRONG IS THE BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR?

IN ‘AVX:VS’ #1, IRON MAN IN BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR GOES TOE TO TOE WITH MAGNETO WHO WAS SIPHONING THE MAGNETIC ENERGY OF NEARBY PLANETS

In 'AvX: Vs' #1, Bleeding Edge Armor Iron Man goes toe to toe with Magneto.

The Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor is able to go toe to toe with an Omega Level mutant. Since Magneto was siphoning the magnetic energy of nearby planets, the Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor is able to withstand planetary to solar level power. This means it is at least Planetary in Power Level.

HOW SMART IS IRON MAN?

Iron Man’s IQ has been rated as super-genius, with the likes of beings like Thanos. Ben Sherlock from CBR.com writes:

Lex Luthor’s IQ is estimated to be 225, which is very impressive. Batman’s is 192, while Albert Einstein’s is thought to be between 160 and 180. So, Batman has a higher IQ than Albert Einstein, but Lex Luthor has a higher IQ than Batman. However, compare Lex’s to Tony Stark’s, which is 270, and it doesn’t seem so impressive. Tony’s IQ of 270 is extremely high. It makes him certifiably a “super genius” and puts him in the smartest 0.1% of the world’s population. 225 is still an incredible IQ score, but it’s not in the top 0.1% of the world.

“9 Questions About Lex Luthor, Answered,” CBR.com

Iron Man mastered the fusion process that powers the solar nuclear reactor. This is revolutionary in the sense that it promises to create clean energy that can power human industry. Iron Man built a Bleeding Edge Iron Man and is capable of at least creating a statistical model of the lifetime of a star from its beginning stages to supernova. Furthermore, Iron Man is able to apply theory to physics and engineering.

The Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor achieves two things: fusion power and nano-technology. Because Iron Man realized these feats of engineering, his creative intelligence is at least intelligent enough to process all the information on the Internet since this is the technology that connects the entirety of Marvel Earth.

In fact, in real-world terms, the orbiting space telescope GALEX that detects stellar and space objects produces about petabytes of data in its catalogs. This means Iron Man is able to process at least petabytes of data in order to create the Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor.

The armor was a modular component system, instead of a suit. In fact, it was an exo-suit, that assembled around Iron Man’s armor. The Hulkbuster exo-suit was used when Hulk confronted Iron Man over his production of gamma bombs at Stane International. They met at a Stark plant.

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • Full Spectrum Scanalyzer with Adamantium-Tipped probe. [2]
  • Magnetic Railgun Launcher with explosive shells. [3]
  • Semi-Fluid Polymer Compound [4]: energy-absorbent compound that shot out and covered its target
  • EM Field Generator [5]: attracted a lightning bolt to short out Ultimo.
  • Gravimetric Field Generator [6]: canceled out the pull of the Earth’s gravity on whatever it was attached to.
  • Polybond Adhesive Compound [7]
  • Cryogenic Compact Module [8]
  • Magnetic Compact Module [9]: used magnetic field to polarize the target. Multiple modules could be used to polarize the target with mutually opposing states making the atoms of the target repel one another.
  • Hypodermic injector [10]
  • Microsurgery Equipment [11]
  • Shoulder Mounted Weapons [12]
  • Hulkbuster, it integrated a magno-hydraulic pseudo-musculature which provided greatly enhanced strength rated at 175 tons. Sensors were adapted to focus on detecting gamma radiation. It had impact-resistant carbon composite plating and an anchoring system.

One of the five armors that was activated by remote trigger when the son of Ho Yinsen was killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. The armor attacked Times Square. The Avengers attempted to take the armor down but could not succeed. Realizing it was triggered by his consciousness, Iron Man blasted himself with repulsors to take it down.

Iron Man used this armor to battle the Hulk which was a very brutal fight. It was heavily damaged by the collapse of Stark Tower; its remains were briefly possessed by the extradimensional demon named Zom. It was subsequently deactivated and was presumably salvaged by Stark Industries or S.H.I.E.L.D. later.

When Tony Stark undertook his reformed company Stark Resilient, a model of this armor was dismantled and melted.

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • Rockets to boost armor’s punches.
  • Injector loaded with anti-gamma radiation nanites.

When the Extremis virus was re-created by A.I.M. and sold around the world, Iron Man decided to hunt it down and destroy all the samples by any means.

Iron Man located one of the sample to a French catacomb where 13 superhumans were being created. Iron Man created the Heavy Duty armor in order to take down the superpowered individuals at the same time.

Later, Iron Man faced Hulk with the Heavy Duty Hulkbuster armor. Though Iron Man used all his arsenal, he was not successful and Hulk turned it into scrap.

The Hulkbuster Armor was next used by Iron Man when Captain Marvel rallied the Avengers to capture Bruce Banner. Due to his possession by the One Below All, the Hulk managed to easily overpower the team. The Hulkbuster’s repulsor beams had little effect on the Hulk, and the armor suffered critical manage with a single blow. After the Hulk tore off the armor’s arms, the suit suffered a cascading failure. Tony had to use the armor’s manual release to activate its ejection system. As soon as Tony ejected out of the armor using its detached helmet for propulsion, the armor exploded.

Super Power: The DC Hierarchy Of Intelligence From 12th Level Intellect And Down According To The Races

SUPER POWER

VISIT THE BATTLES OF THE WEEK PAGE.

IN POWER LEVEL

THE DC HIERARCHY OF INTELLIGENCE HAS COLUANS AS ITS STANDARD

Coluans. AP Photo/DC Comics.

The DC hierarchy of intelligence includes alien races, gods, metahumans, cosmic beings and humans. At the top of the classic DC hierarchy of intelligence are the Coluans. The DC hierarchy of intelligence stems from the intelligence system from the planet Colu.

Coluans are aliens from the planet Colu. Their political system is as advanced technarchy where machines rule the everyday lives of Coluans. In fact, Colu is ruled by the Computer Tyrants, sentient machines that regulate every aspect of Coluan life. This is different from Krypton’s former system of government where an advanced state of science and technology was used in order to create a caste system. In both regimes, however, genetic engineering has reached a very advanced state where disease is eradicated and the lifespan is prolonged. Coluans through genetic manipulation are able to live up to 3600 Earth years.

Coluans being a very advanced state of technology and science, the average citizen on Colu has an 8th-level intellect. Colu’s intelligence system is the product of its super-science and of a world ruled by logic, not emotion. In fact, on Colu, life is conserved in immortal cybernetic forms.

THE DC HIERARCHY OF INTELLIGENCE

Since the Silver Age, Brainiac has been recognized as the most intelligent being in the DC Universe. By Coluan standards, Brainiac is a 12th level intellect. After Vril Dox I escaped Colu and Vril Dox II liberated the planet from the Computer Tyrants, Vril Dox I’s psyche inhabited a robot and became Brainiac. His programming was to convert all life in the Milky Way galaxy to digital information in a matter of hours and bottle it on his Skull Ship.

Super Power: Godzilla’s Atomic Ray Can Be Increased A Hundred-Fold When Overloaded With Radiation

SUPER POWER

ForgetMyname

IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER

GODZILLA IS A MUTATED GODZILLASAURUS

“Godzilla vs King Ghidorah” (1991).

In “Godzilla vs King Ghidorah” (1991), we learn of Godzilla which is a kaiju and the “King of Monsters.” The film was produced by Toho Company Ltd and was the 18th installment in the Godzilla series.

Originally, Godzilla was Godzillasaurus that survived a 100 million years on Lagos Island. A team of two Americans and one Japanese from the future called the Futurians traveled to present-day Japan to warn that the monster would one day destroy Japan. The Futurians sought to alter the future.

Read on!

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

The Godzillasaurus lived on Lagos Island in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, and was attacked by American soldiers during World War II. This was observed by some of the Futurians and a group of people from the present that had traveled back in time to remove Godzilla from history.

The Godzillasaurus fought off the Americans, seemingly ‘defending’ a bastion of Japanese soldiers who were on the island at the time, but was gravely wounded after multiple naval ships bombarded it with shells and missiles. Badly injured, the Godzillasaurus fell to the ground. After the Japanese soldiers paid their respects and left, the Futurians transported the injured dinosaur to the Bering Sea, thinking that they had successfully altered the present day.

However, this was not to be the case, as a nuclear submarine crash in the Bering Sea provided the energy to turn the Godzillasaurus into Godzilla, thus preventing the timeline from changing.

Godzillasaurus, Gojipedia


GODZILLA IS A WALKING NUCLEAR REACTOR WITH AN ATOMIC RAY AS ITS MOST POTENT ATTACK

Godzilla is a mutated monster that is a walking nuclear reactor. Its most potent attack is the atomic ray which it fires as a blast from its mouth. The atomic ray is capable of devastating one fourth of Tokyo in one single blast. In addition, Godzilla possesses another super power. It is able to emit from its body a field of nuclear energy called the nuclear pulse.

IN “GODZILLA VS THE COSMIC MONSTER” (1977), GODZILLA FIRES HIS ATOMIC RAY AT MECHAGODZILLA

OUTCOME: GODZILLA WINS BY DECAPITATION

GODZILLA’S ATOMIC RAY CAN BE INCREASED A HUNDRED-FOLD BY AN OVERLOAD OF RADIATION

Godzilla is able to generate radiation as the atomic ray; however, he can also absorb radiation. When overloaded by radiation, his abilities can increase a hundred-fold.

Read on!

When charged with extra radiation, Godzilla’s ray will become red and, occasionally, have a spiral around it; this spiral ray is much more powerful than the normal ray, and can even hit objects in space (as seen in Godzilla: Final Wars).

When overloaded with radiation all of Godzilla’s abilities increase a hundred-fold. However when his temperature reaches 1200 degrees Celsius, he will melt down, causing the atmosphere of the planet to heat up, and then explode, vaporizing everything we know. The effects can be lessened by freezing him but they will still do unbelievable amounts of damage to his surroundings.

Super Power: Darkseid’s Omega Effect Is A New God Power That Grants Its User Power Over Life And Death

SUPER POWER


Comics Explained

IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER

IN POST-CRISIS CONTINUITY, THE OMEGA EFFECT IS DARKSEID’S ULTIMATE NEW GOD SUPER POWER

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey’ (1994) #1, Doomsday faces the awesome might of Darkseid! Photo/DC Comics

Darkseid’s Omega Effect is the New God’s ultimate super power. Being a New God, Darkseid derives this super power from the Source. The ability is probably an extension of the chaotic power of the Source.

What does this mean?

The Omega Effect is Darkseid’s power to create or destroy from the chaos aspect of the Source. In post-crisis continuity, the Source is the boundary to the DC multiverse and its creator.

Read on!

The Godwave was a mystical wave of energy, created by The Source, that swept across the cosmos, responsible for creating various pantheons of gods. As it spread it eventually reached the edge of the universe and rebounded, making a second pass that created the potential for Superhumans. Thus, it was responsible for creating the likes of the Speed Force, the Quantum Field and the energy channeled by the Guardians of the Universe. In time, the resonance created by the Godwave began to expand and contract whereupon it returned to The Source. This expansion and contraction began to affect the powers of various beings throughout the universe. As a result, the cosmic energy force began to tear apart the structures it had created whereupon it would wipe the universe clean bringing about the emergence of a new and terrible Fifth World to replace it.

THE OMEGA EFFECT GRANTS DARKSEID POWER OVER LIFE AND DEATH

Darkseid uses the Omega Effect in order to create and to destroy. The Omega Effect grants Darkseid power over life and death. The Omega Effect is fired as concussive beams from Darkseid’s eyes. The super power is able to disintegrate beings and objects on target. In addition, the Omega Effect can curve though it does not err from its target.

The Omega Effect grants Darkseid the power to erase beings from reality and re-create them at will. It is thus a reality-warping power. The New God derives this super power from the chaotic side of the Source.

TAA II IS GALACTUS’ SOLAR SYSTEM-SIZED HOME

Four’ (1966) #49, Galactus’ Taa II arrives on Earth. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

In the previous universe, Galan lived on Taa. Upon surviving the destruction of his home universe, Galan incubated in a Cosmic Egg merging with the Sentience of the Universe. Emerging from the Cosmic Egg, he was observed by a Watcher who realized the tremendous power the nascent Galactus possessed to feed on the living energy of planets but the Watcher decided not to kill Galactus.

Sensing his hunger, Galactus consumed the nearby planet of Archeopia.

Read on!

After emerging from his incubation cube millions of years after the Big Bang, Galactus consumed the nearby planet Archeopia; this was the first world to fall prey to his insatiable hunger. Galactus felt compelled to create a monument to his dead homeworld Taa, which existed in the previous universe, and to the ravaged planet Archeopia.

Galactus used the remains of Archeopia as the raw material from which he created the enormous Taa II. Construction took millennia to complete, due to Galactus’s need to take breaks in search of sustenance. When it was completed it engulfed the entire Archeopian System.

Galactus intended Taa II to surpass any natural world in size, beauty and splendor. Based on accounts from the few beings to step foot in it, such as Mister Fantastic, Galactus easily met his goal.

Indeed, Taa II is so massive several planets and even a star are held captive by its gravitational pull.

In ‘Darkseid/Galactus: The Hunger’ (1995), the Silver Surfer travels to the DC multiverse and reaches Apokolips. Sensing there are life forms on it, he sends a summons for Galactus.

Galactus arrives in a sphere-shaped starship and immediately touches down on the planet. Then, he begins construction of his elemental converter in order to convert the planet into living energy and consume it. Darkseid and his armies resist. However, when Darkseid attempts to erase Galactus with his Omega Effect, it fails. Galactus seemingly wins the battle by blasting Darkseid away. However, when he begins to consume the planet, he senses no living energy.

With that, Darkseid wins by instructing Galactus that he sought to defend his planet simply because he is its ruler.

OUTCOME: DARKSEID WINS
