Among Marvel superheroes, Black Bolt is a powerhouse. As Inhuman King, the silent monarch hosts a plethora of super powers: super strength, super speed, superhuman durability, a powerful sonic scream, matter and energy manipulation, particle and electron harnessing and manipulation.

On his brow, Black Bolt has a metallic fork-shaped antenna. In order to channel his particle and electron super powers, Black Bolt focuses them with his antenna. Let’s look at how Black Bolt’s chief super powers extend to the Galaxy Level.

SONIC SCREAM

In ‘Fantastic Four’ (1993) #375, Doctor Doom has stolen Aron the rogue Watcher’s powers. Given that Uatu the Watcher’s power can shake a galaxy, Aron is comparably Galaxy Level. In order to stop Doctor Doom, the Fantastic Four and the Inhumans have teamed up. Ingeniously, Mister Fantastic has invented the Optimizer.

In short, it is a machine that absorbs Doctor Doom’s cosmic energy from his storage battery and fires it back at him. In this instance, Black Bolt speaks his sonic scream into the Optimizer and fires it at Doctor Doom. As a result, Doctor Doom’s storage battery is overloaded till he reaches critical mass. In the end, Doom vanishes in an explosion.

Definitely, Black Bolt demonstrated a Galaxy Level of Energy Projection since he was able to overload Doctor Doom’s storage battery.

PARTICLE AND ELECTRON MANIPULATION

In 'Marvel Two-In-One Annual' (1979) #4, Black Bolt uses his electron manipulation to stop a solar flare.

In ‘Marvel Two-In-One Annual’ (1979) #4, Black Bolt performs an incredible feat. During a battle against Graviton, Black Bolt has to stop a solar flare from striking the Earth. Incredibly, Black Bolt uses his electron manipulation powers to stop the solar flare.

Considering a solar flare produces 1025 Watts of power, Black Bolt demonstrated a Stellar Level of Energy Projection.

SUPER STRENGTH

In 'War of Kings' (2009) #1, Black Bolt and Gladiator battle.

In ‘War of Kings’ (2009) #1, Emperor Vulcan is at the head of the Shi’ar Empire. Meanwhile, Black Bolt rules the Kree. In a declaration of war, Vulcan attacks the Kree. During an all-out war, Black Bolt attacks Gladiator and briefly overpowers him. In the meantime, White Noise has to put an end to the fight.

Considering Gladiator has Stellar Level Super Strength, Black Bolt demonstrated a Stellar Level of Super Strength.

Definitely, Black Bolt is as powerful as a herald of Galactus. Let’s list the Top 4 heralds in terms of energy manipulation.

1. SILVER SURFER, ‘INCREDIBLE HULK’ (1980) #250

In 'Incredible Hulk' (1980) #250, the Silver Surfer absorbs the Hulk's gamma radiation who reverts to Bruce Banner.

In ‘Incredible Hulk’ (1980) #250, Silver Surfer is stranded on Earth and seeks the help of Bruce Banner. In order to break through Galactus’s space barrier, Bruce Banner constructs machinery to bombard the Silver Surfer with gamma rays. Soon, the gamma-powered Silver Surfer goes into space to break the barrier.

After a gamma ray explosion, Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk. Returning from space for more power, Surfer ends up fighting the Green Behemoth. On Silver Surfer’s surfboard, they end in space. There, Surfer has the idea of absorbing Hulk‘s gamma ray radiation. Afterwards, Hulk reverts to Bruce Banner.

Eventually, Surfer breaks the space barrier. However, the Sentinel of the Spaceways has to return to Earth to save Bruce in free fall, who fell off Surfer’s surfboard. Finally, Surfer has to return Bruce’s gamma power to save him, transforminging him into the Hulk. In the end, the Silver Surfer is again trapped on Earth.

2. STARDUST, ‘STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA-RAY BILL’ (2005) #4

In 'Stormbreaker: The Saga of Beta-Ray Bill' (2005) #4, Stardust opens a portal to a black hole.

In “The 10 Most Powerful Heralds of Galactus, Ranked”, Chris White at CBR.com ranks Stardust number three. Namely, Stardust was the last surviving member of his race known as the Etherals. In fact, these were beings of pure energy. Named Lambda-Zero, she became Stardust, a ruthless and murderous herald of Galactus.

In ‘Stormbreaker: The Saga of Beta-Ray Bill’ (2005) #4, Stardust and Beta-Ray Bill engage in a cosmic clash over Galactus’ attempt to feed on New Korbin. In order to assist in her struggle, Stardust summons Asteroth. When the demon causes untold damage, both fighters agree to battle field remove it.

Uncannily, one of Stardust’s super powers with the Power Cosmic is to open portals to black holes. In order to BFR Asteroth, Stardust opens a portal to a black hole. Though, the ploy fails and both Stardust and Beta-Ray Bill begin to be sucked in.

In the end, they are saved by Alpha Ray who drives the evil spirit into the black hole.

3. NOVA, ‘SILVER SURFER’ (1987) #9

In 'Silver Surfer' (1987) #9, Nova destroys a sun to create a black hole.

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (1987) #9, Nova and Silver Surfer have to save Galactus from the Elders of the Universe. In a grand scheme, they have built a device powered by the Soul Gems to destroy Galactus. Mischievously, they have kidnapped Shalla Bal and Mantis in order to lure the Silver Surfer. In exchange for the women’s freedoms, Surfer hands over the Soul Gem.

However, the Grandmaster sends the women in a ball of energy that will explode if touched. Unfortunately, Norrin manages to save only Shalla Bal. Angrily, the Surfer vows to make them pay and departs to save Galactus. Meanwhile, the Elders of the Universe have activated their machine which is slowly killing the Devourer of Worlds.

Under Surfer’s direction, Nova triggers a star to collapse into a black hole. Miraculously, Galactus can recover by feeding on the energies. Meanwhile, some of the Elders and the Soul Gems are sucked into the black hole.

Definitely, a feat requiring a high end energy manipulation. On a scale, it requires the power output of a galaxy within seconds. Without a doubt, a Galaxy Level of Energy Projection.

4. FIRELORD, ‘AVENGERS’ (1989) #302

In 'Avengers' (1989) #302, Firelord removes the flames off Invisible Woman's construct in re-entry.

In ‘Avengers’ (1989) #302, Firelord removes the flames off Invisible Woman’s construct in re-entry. Considering Firelord withstood heat from re-entry, this is both an energy projection feat and a durability feat.

TOP OMEGA LEVEL MUTANTS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE OR DESTROY ENTIRE UNIVERSES

In 'House of X' (2019) #1, the 14 Omega-Level mutants are listed.

On Earth, the mutant gene was the result of experiments by the Celestials on homo erectus. In their experiments, the Celestials created the lines of the Deviants and the Eternals.

During their First Host on Earth, one million years ago, the Celestials collected the Wanderers, a tribe of Homo erectus. Gammenon the Gatherer collected the ape-men and sent them to Ziran the Tester who mutated them to have an unstable genome, creating the Deviants (Homo descendus), a race with various mutations, who were then released and went hiding in the caves. With other subjects, Nezarr the Calculator then created the Eternals(Eternals (Homo immortalis)), hairless, upright tall beings able to tap into the cosmic power. They were themselves released, flying out of the Celestials’ laboratory-ship. Finally, Oneg the Prober created a latent gene for the expansion of human potential and those modified yet apparently unchanged ape-men were released.

The potential for superhuman powers was only latent: That dormant “DNA complex”/”mutant genes” implanted in Homo erectus.

That potential was transferred to Homo antecessor,then to Homo neanderthalensis, both species experimented on by the Kree in order to create the Inhumans (Inhomo supremis).

It later came to fruition into the form of Homo superior, the mutants.

-Mutant Genes, Marvel Database

Depending on the mutation, Earth’s mutants display different abilities with variable range. In fact, the top Omega Level mutants have the potential to create or destroy entire universes. Let’s list our top 10.

10. STORM

Storm.

Uniquely, Storm is both a mutant and a goddess. As goddess, she is worshipped by the tribes in Wakanda. In fact, Ororo is an Omega Level mutant because she is considered a Storm Goddess. Contrary to Professor X, her weather powers are the result of magic.

Potentially, Storm has no upper limit to her manipulation of nature. Though, she may not be able to create or destroy universes. Indeed, her power potentially extends to the weather forces on Earth. For that reason, she belongs on this list.

9. MARVEL GIRL

Marvel Girl.

To this day, Jean Grey is the most well-known Phoenix Force host. As Phoenix, Jean possesses cosmic power on a multiversal scale. In fact, the cosmic entity is a firebird of rebirth and destruction.

Currently, Jean has rejected the Phoenix. As Marvel Girl, she displays telepathy and telekinesis at the Omega Level. Moreover, she has performed incredible feats since returning from the dead as Marvel Girl. In ‘King In Black’ (2021) #4, Marvel Girl invaded the mind of the primordial god Knull.

Considering Knull is a God of Darkness from the primordial universe, Marvel Girl definitely displayed the power to destroy an entire universe.

Originally, Magneto was classified as one of the few Omega Level mutants on Earth. With his mastery of magnetism, he can destroy the planet’s magnetic field. However, his power initially rivals Phoenix’s. At his maximum, Magneto can siphon the magnetic fields of nearby planets. That is a Stellar to Solar System Level.

7. VULCAN

Vulcan.

According to Professor X, Vulcan is the most powerful mutant energy manipulator. As an Omega Level mutant, Gabriel can absorb, project and manipulate vast amounts of energy. Moreover, Vulcan’s power extends over the EM spectrum and even Adam Warlock’s magic.

6. HOPE SUMMERS

Hope Summers.

Incredibly, Hope’s mutant power is power mimicry. Meaning, she can only mimic the powers of those mutants she encounters in close proximity. At first, this may seem unimportant. However, there seems to be no definable limit to her mutant power.

In ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ (2012) #12, Hope mimicked the Iron Fist to its highest potential. Aided by Scarlet Witch, she went toe-to-toe with a Phoenix-powered Cyclops. In the end, she landed a blow powerful enough to dissociate Phoenix from Scott.

Finally, Hope demonstrated the power to extinguish the Phoenix itself, when it claimied her as a host. Definitely, a universal feat.

5. ELIXIR

Elixir

In ‘New X-Men: Academy X Yearbook’ (2005) #1, Elixir is classified as an Omega Level Healer. Particularly, Joshua Foley’s mutation is the power to control his biology and others’ down to the genetic level. In effect, Elixir can heal from physical damage, reactivate suppressed mutant abilities, and even repair cerebral functions.

Initially, Elixir was able to heal only scratches, burns and damaged bones. Before his death, this ability extended to only a dozen or so mutants whom he needed to touch physically.

Moreover, Elixir can resurrect the dead. In ‘Uncanny X-Men Annual’ (2016) #1, Elixir has been able to resurrect the 16 million deceased mutants in Genosha. Indeed, this is a divine power. Definitely, a potential to create life and the universe.

4. MISTER M

As an Omega Level mutant, Proteus possesses the power to alter and manipulate reality with his thought. In addition, his super power allows him to teleport and shift between the multiverse.

Potentially, Proteus possesses the power to destroy the universe. So far, his reality manipulation power affects only a limited area around him. Nevertheless, in ‘Planet-Size X-Men’ (2021) #1, Kevin was able to terraform Mars. In his energy form, Proteus needs a human host in order to live.

2. LEGION

Legion.

According to Doctor Nemesis, Legion is an Omega Level mutant. In fact, his mutant power is to create spontaneous mutations. Incredibly, Legion has over 200 split personalities each governed by a different super power. Potentially, Legion possesses the power to destroy the universe.

1. FRANKLIN RICHARDS

In “Franklin Richards: Marvel Confirms The Most Powerful Mutant Character,” Fortress of Solitude states Franklin Richards is the most powerful mutant. For good measure, since Franklin has the power to create, manipulate and destroy universes. Specifically, Professor X’s file lists his reality manipulation as Universal Level. Importantly, fans have speculated that Franklin may control the entirety of the Marvel Universe.

PROFESSOR X THOUGHT STORM WAS A MUTANT

Before joining the X-Men, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a rain/fertility goddess by local tribesmen in Kenya. When the original X-Men team was missing, Professor X assembled new members to rescue them. During the first meeting, Professor X revealed to Ororo that she was not a goddess, instead, she was a mutant. Really, he made her the offer to discover the real world and fight for the cause of mutants. Curiously, Ororo accepted.

STORM’S WEATHER POWERS ARE THE RESULT OF MUTATION

Correctly, Storm’s weather powers are the result of mutation. In fact, Storm is one of the powerful mutants on Earth. Furthermore, the X-Man has been classified as an Omega Level mutant. With training and experience under Professor X’s direction, Storm has grown in skill, power and leadership.

An instance that supports Professor X’s thesis is Feat: Black Panther, ‘Doomwar’ #1. Here, T’Challa proactively invented a cell that nullifies the X-gene. Effectively, Storm has no powers under such conditions. However, there is evidence that Storm’s powers are based on magic and witchcraft.

STORM’S ATMOKINESIS

Atmokinesis: Storm is one of the most powerful mutants on Earth and has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to manipulate the weather.[167] Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of Weather Manipulation. She has been able to control both Earthly and extraterrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. [Storm] can modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level),[167] generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. [Storm] can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes,[168] as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

STORM IS A GODDESS OF THE STORM INHERITED THROUGH A LINE OF AFRICAN WITCHES

In ‘Marvel Tarot’ (2007) #1, we find out about Storm’s line of ancestry. In reality, Ororo Munroe descends from a line of witches. All of them, have distinctive white hair, blue eyes and the potential to wield magic. We can formulate two theories to explain Storm’s super powers.

First, Storm’s super powers showcase magical potential and properly unite science and magic. Here, the evidence that supports our hypothesis is the fact that Storm derives power from faith. In Wakanda, she is properly worshipped as a Goddess of the Storm. Furthermore, Black Panther, her former husband and King, considered her a goddess.

Second, Storm’s super powers are both divine and genetic. As Goddess of the Storm, she can hear and grant prayers. At the same time, her godhood is both the result of religion and magical inheritance. Indeed, Storm has both white hair and blue eyes. Therefore, these phenotypes presuppose a genetic basis. In addition, there is evidence that her powers are based on the X-gene. In conclusion, this may provide a rare case in the Marvel Universe where magical potential has a genetic basis. Moreover, it is possible that the X-gene is itself recessive.

For more information, refer to Mutant Biology on Marvel Database.

DOOMSDAY’S REACTIVE ADAPTATION GRANTS IT UNIVERSAL-LEVEL DURABILITY

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

In “Super Power Explained: Is The Omega Effect, Universal Or Multiversal In Power Level?,” we rated Darkseid’s Omega Effect. In a few words, Darkseid’s Omega Effect is Universal Level since it managed to kill Doomsday. However, due to Doomsday’s reactive evolution, the monster survived the onslaught. Dangerously, it nearly fatally injured Darkseid. To rate the super power, we looked at the destruction of Doomsday at the end of “Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey.” To sum, it took the entropy at the end of the DC Universe to kill the monster.

On this list, let’s rank those heroes and incarnations that have performed best to worst against the Ultimate in battle. In addition, let’s list the relevant issues.

BEST: POST-CRISIS SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN/DOOMSDAY: HUNTER/PREY’ (1994) #3

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter Prey #3' (1994), Doomsday is taken to the end of time by Superman and Waverider.

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey’ (1994) #3, Superman learns the origin of Doomsday from Waverider. 200,000 years ago, the Ultimate was born on Krypton from genetic engineering by a scientist named Bertron.

Despite Mother Box’s amps, Superman is no match for Doomsday. In effect, his reactive adaptation enables him to evolve to counter Superman’s attack. And, his power of immortality prevents Superman from killing him in the same way twice.

Nevertheless, using Waverider’s Temporal Transporter, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe. There, entropy effectively kills Doomsday. Then, a reconstituted Waverider transports Superman back to the present.

Clearly, one of Superman’s clearest victories. Here, Superman used both brawn and brain to put down the monster. Definitely, it belongs at the top of the list.

VISIT FEAT: SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN/BATMAN’ #10.

BEST: NEW 52 SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN: DOOMED’ (2014) #1

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Superman rips Doomsday in half in Smallville.

During the New 52, Doomsday resurfaced as a plague. Terrifyingly, the monster was stealing sentient life forces. To this end, it was in order to be powerful enough to fight Superman.

In ‘Superman: Doomed’ (2014) #1, Superman and Wonder Woman hunted down the creature in Botswana. However, it spent its time teleporting around the Earth. In fact, it was corrupting all life in its vicinity with its toxins.

Eventually, Superman confronts the menace in India. Then, he takes the fight to outer space. On Venus, Superman destroys the monster with a blast of heat vision. Back in Smallville, the monster follows the Man of Steel. In a vicious attack, Superman rips Doomsday in half, ending the threat.

Clearly, one of the most decisive victories against Doomsday. Definitely, a Herculean effort.

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Wonder Woman rumbles against Doomsday.

Previously, Doomsday held Wonder Woman on the ropes in ‘Superman/Wonder Woman’ (2013) #1. Until Superman arrived on the scene. Then, Doomsday teleported away.

Similarly, in Round Two, the situation repeats in ‘Superman: Doomed’ (2014) #1. But, this time, Wonder Woman performs better against the plague. With a strike of her sword, Wonder Woman pierces Doomsday’s thorax. As a result, the monster releases deadly poison. Though Wonder Woman is infected, she continues the fight.

As Doomsday attacks, he is blasted by a dose of heat vision. In the nick of time, Superman has arrived to save his girlfriend. Strangely, before Superman can take down the monster, Doomsday teleports away. Perhaps, in fear of the Kryptonian.

Definitely, a victory for the Power Couple.

Promptly, it is time for a Maxima revival. Post-Crisis, the Queen of Almerac is a heavy hitter of the JLA. During “The Death of Superman,” Maxima and the Man of Steel were the only JLAers left standing against Doomsday.

A warrior-born, Maxima performed impressively against the creature. Though, her fierceness and her battle lust may have caused her undoing.

In her battle lust, Maxima removed a light pole from its base. With the gasoline gushing from a nearby gas station, the sparks from the light pole caused a huge explosion. Caught in the explosion, Maxima and Superman were knocked out. Later, Superman and Maxima are revived by Guardian. In the end, Doomsday survived and Superman decided to stop the monster alone.

Indeed, a good showing by a female warrior against the Ultimate.

In ‘Superman’ (2001) #175, Joker unleashes Doomsday on the anniversary of the Last Son of Krypton’s death. On that day, President Luthor gives a speech commemorating recent events during “Our Worlds At War.” At the White House, President Luthor is under attack by the Berserker.

Disguised as a secret agent, Mac transforms into Martian Manhunter. For the first time, Doomsday displays intelligence and speech. Unfortunately, Martian telepathy has no effect. When Doomsday blocks J’onn’s punch, the Martian notes the creature is sentient.

Then, Doomsday brings Martian Manhunter to his knees. Though the monster acknowledges J’onn’s power, he states the Martian is no Superman. Finally, Doomsday demonstrates another super power. Atrociously, the monster breathes fire on Martian Manhunter, defeating him.

Definitely, a bad performance against Doomsday.

SUPERMAN EXCEEDS A STELLAR LEVEL OF SUPER-STRENGTH

In 'Justice League' (2012) #6, Superman bullrushes Darkseid into a Boom Tube.

Since “Superman Reborn,” the New 52 Superman and the Rebirth Superman have been merged into one. In effect, it is the same Post-Crisis Superman. Moreover, the Rebirth and New 52 universes merged into a single DC Universe. Nevertheless, Superman’s Post-Crisis history has been preserved. In addition, the 10 years stolen by Doctor Manhattan have been restored.

Over the past decades, Superman’s strength level has fluctuated. Noticeably, John Byrne’s Superman decreased Superman’s strength level considerably. Since the “Death of Superman,” the Man of Steel has steadily increased in super strength. Normally, Superman can move or shatter planets. Also, he is strong enough to hold a miniature black hole in his hand. Therefore, the Man of Steel can exceed a Stellar Level of super strength.

However, since Post-Crisis, Big Blue has performed feats that displayed a potential for infinite strength. Let’s list five feats that show Superman’s infinite strength.

‘FINAL CRISIS: SUPERMAN BEYOND’ (2008) #1

In 'Superman Beyond' (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages.

In ‘Final Crisis: Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel/Shazam lift the Book of Limbo. Really, it is a book with an infinite number of pages. In “Superman, The Greatest Story,” I argue that it is feats that define Superman’s story. In ‘Final Crisis,’ Superman is not only the strongest story, he is also the strongest hero. Definitely, this feat takes the top spot on this list.

‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’ (2019) #25

In the conclusion of the “Sixth Dimension” storyline, Superman battles against the World Forger. Freed from his prison on Prime Earth, Superman sundips multiple times in yellow suns. Then, flying at high speeds through the cosmos, Superman reaches the speed of light. In an instant, he becomes a line and all time and space is perceptible to him. With a devastating punch, Superman shatters the World Forger’s 20 billion years old multiverse.

Superman and Wonder Woman are two of the strongest warriors in the DC Universe. In ‘JLA/Spectre: Soul War’ (2003) #1, the Spectre comes to ask the JLA for help to stop the Trans’ invasion. During the invasion, Spectre merges with the JLA. As the Spectre and JLA investigate, Spectre is knocked unconscious. In free fall, Superman and Wonder Woman lift Spectre.

Indeed, considering the free fall and that Spectre’s weight is eternity. Definitely, this feat requires infinite strength.

To sum, “Infinite Crisis” is largely a question about who is the true Superman. Indeed, Earth-One Superman, Earth-Two Superman, Superboy and Superboy-Prime all contended for the title.

During the crisis, Earth-Two Superman successfully brought back Earth-Two with Alexander Luthor Jr’s help. And, when Earth-Two Lois Lane died, Earth-One Superman journeyed to Earth-Two to help. However, Earth-Two Superman blamed Kal-El for her death.

Dangerously, a clash followed between the two Supermen that threatened time and space. The Men of Steel’s punches threatened reality and opened a rift of chronal energy. Then, each Superman was transported to the other one’s Earth, reliving its history.

Eventually, Wonder Woman had to come to Earth-Two to restrain Earth-Two Superman. To consider, opening a chronal rift requires time travel. Definitely, this feat requires infinite strength.

Well put, Superman asks Brainiac-13 “What’s infinity times infinity?” In ‘Action Comics’ (2001) #782, a cosmic Superman transports B-13’s Warworld an instant after the Big Bang.

During “Our Worlds At War,” Imperiex sought to hollow the universe. When Imperiex’s armor was cracked, Brainiac-13 absorbed its energies into Warworld. To that end, Brainiac sought to rule the universe.

Via a temporal Boom Tube, the sundipped Superman transported Warworld to the beginning of time. Though, the temporal Boom Tube was created by Steel’s Entropy Aegis. Nonetheless, Superman’s feat still involved time travel.

Indeed, it is debatable whether the feat required an infinite amount of super strength. At the same time, pushing Warworld through a temporal Boom Tube definitely required an incalculable amount of super-strength.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

THE DC UNIVERSE IS ALL ABOUT SPEED

'DC Nation' (2018) #2 ranks the Top 10 speedsters in the DC Universe

In the DC Universe, speedsters are capable of moving at tremendous speeds. Indeed, these are metahumans possessing tremendous super speed. To this end, ‘DC Nation’ (2018) #2, lists the Top 10 speedsters in the DC Universe.

For our purposes, let’s list them according to classes: 1. Speed Force Users. 2. Kryptonians. 3. Greek Pantheon and Magic Users. 4. Martians.

I. INFINITE CLASS: SPEED FORCE USERS

In the DC Universe, the Speed Force is the super power that powers the best of DC’s speedsters. In fact, this multiversal energy allows its users to generate an infinite amount of kinetic energy. To sum, DC’s best speedsters are Speed Force conduits that can reach an infinite amount of super speed.

1. FLASH (WALLY WEST), ‘JLA’ (1997) #3

In 'JLA' (1997) #3, Flash's infinite mass punch sends Zum into escape velocity at seven miles per second.

In ‘JLA’ (1997) #3, Flash (Wally West) showcased why he is the Fastest Man Alive. At the time, Wally endeared himself to us. Remembering Barry’s “Flash Facts,” he used a combat technique known as the Infinite Mass Punch.

In a race against the White Martian named Zum, Wally shattered general relativity. Indeed, he accelerated his mass to infinity as he approached the speed of light. Then, he hit Zum with the IMP generating an infinite amount of kinetic energy. At high speeds, Zum hit escape velocity and landed across the planet.

In ‘The Flash’ (1999) #148, Flash hits Reverse-Flash with a white dwarf punch. Definitely, the IMP enables Flash to take on Superman-level foes. Considering this, Wally deserves the top spot on this list.

2. FLASH (BARRY ALLEN), ‘FLASHPOINT’ (2011) #5

In 'Flashpoint' (2011) #5, Reverse-Flash reveals to Barry that the hero caused Flashpoint over grief for his mother.

Certainly, “Flashpoint” is the most important DC crossover event of the new millennium. In a few words, in ‘Flashpoint’ (2011) #1, Barry Allen awakens at his desk. Strangely, he notices details of his daily routine are off. Also, he has no speed.

Furthermore, the most important detail is that his mother is alive. Afterwards, visiting the Batcave, Barry meets with Batman who is Thomas Wayne. In the end, Barry realizes he is living in an alternate timeline and suspects the Reverse-Flash is the cause.

In ‘Flashpoint’ (2011) #5, Reverse-Flash reveals to Barry that the hero caused Flashpoint over grief for his mother. When Barry found out Eobard murdered his mother, he time travelled to the past. Tragically, he saved his mother which resulted in the new timeline.

In the end, Barry attempts to restore the timeline. Unfortunately, this creates the Prime Earth multiverse. Certainly, the Speed Force grants its users infinite energy. Here, Barry shows his super power: time travel and the ability to recreate the DC multiverse. Definitely, this requires an infinite amount of kinetic energy.

Among his rogues, Reverse-Flash is Flash’s most dangerous foe. J. Richland Anderson at CBR.com, lists him third on the “10 Fastest Characters In All Of The DC Multiverse”. In the 25th century, technology has solved the problem of crime. As a result, there are no superheroes.

A wealthy man, Eobard Thawne was obsessed with the Flash. Successfully, he replicated Flash’s powers in an experiment and became… Reverse-Flash! Time traveling to the 20th century, he plagued Flash for years.

Among his super powers are: dimensional travel, time travel, reality alteration and Speed Force Negation. Lately, Thawne has created the Negative Speed Force.

II. COSMIC CLASS: KRYPTONIANS

In the second class, are the Kryptonians. In a few words, under the light of the yellow sun, Kryptonians are capable of running, reacting, flying and traveling at superhuman speeds. Really, Kryptonians derive their super speed from the yellow solar radiation stored in their super dense cells. In effect, they are supermen who can move at FTL speeds.

1. SUPERBOY-PRIME, ‘INFINITE CRISIS’ (2006) #6

In 'Infinite Crisis' (2006) #6, Superboy-Prime escapes the Speed Force in his solar armor.

Originally, Superboy-Prime was destined to become Superman. Tragically, Alexander Luthor Jr’s machinations during “Infinite Crisis” caused him to become an evil Superman.

In ‘Infinite Crisis’ (2006) #4, believing himself to be the true Superboy, Superboy-Prime attacked Superboy. As a result, the Doom Patrol, Teen Titans and JSA came to the rescue. Critically, many members of the super-powered teams were injured. Left with no choice, Bart, Jay and Wally sent SBP to the Speed Force. There, he was imprisoned under a red sun.

In ‘Infinite Crisis’ (2006) #6, proving no prison could shackle him, Superboy-Prime escaped. Definitely, it requires to be faster than the Speed Force to escape it. Is SBP faster than infinity?

2. H’EL, ‘SUPERMAN’ (2013) #14

In 'Superman' (2013) #14, H'el teleports Superboy.
In ‘Superman’ (2013) #14, H’el teleports Superboy. AP Photo/DC Comics.

During the “H’el on Earth” storyline, Superman meets a foe unlike he has seen before. In a few words, H’el is Superman with additional super powers: teleportation, telekinesis, telepathy and size alteration.

In ‘Superman’ (2013) #14, H’el teleports Superboy so fast that Superman can’t see his movements. Considering Superman’s perception, this definitely requires FTL super speed. Certainly, this feat is the reason why H’el belongs on this list.

3. SUPERMAN, ‘ACTION COMICS’ (2014) #35

In 'Action Comics' (2014) #35, Superman travels endless space in 60 days.
In ‘Action Comics’ (2014) #35, Superman travels endless space in 60 days. AP Photo/DC Comics.

On multiple occasions, the Man of Steel has demonstrated he can travel and react at FTL super speed. Particularly, the speedblitz is a combat technique that allows Superman to punch his foes at tremendous speeds.

In ‘Action Comics’ (2014) #35, Superman demonstrates a cosmic class feat in the New 52. During the Brainiac invasion, Superman succumbed to the Doomsday Virus. On his return to Earth, Superman travels endless space in 60 days.

In conclusion, this is a FTL super speed feat. Definitely, it is the reason why Clark deserves a spot on this list.

VISIT FEAT: SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN’ #207

III. STELLAR CLASS: GREEK PANTHEON AND MAGIC USERS

Third, is the Greek Pantheon and magic users. In short, these metahumans derive their super speed from divine enchantment and the pantheon of gods. Incredibly, they can move at near the speed of light. As a matter of fact, they regularly compete with DC’s best speedsters.

1. WONDER WOMAN, ‘WONDER WOMAN’ (2005) #214

In 'Wonder Woman' (2005) #214, a blind Wonder Woman tags Reverse-Flash moving at near light-speed.

To begin, Wonder Woman regularly competes with DC’s best speedsters. In ‘JLA’ (2008) #23, the League has been defeated by an upgraded Amazo in Red Tornado’s body. Thus, it’s up to Wonder Woman to save the day. Using their combined super powers, the JLA defeats Amazo.

In the issue, it is stated that Wonder Woman’s combat speed is faster than Superman’s. Though, Superman may have unlimited travel speed potential.

In ‘Wonder Woman’ (2005) #214, a blind Wonder Woman reaches Reverse-Flash moving at near light-speed. Considering the Reverse-Flash is powered by the Speed Force, this is a feat requiring near infinite kinetic energy. Therefore, Wonder Woman belongs in the Stellar class.

2. CAPTAIN MARVEL (SHAZAM), ‘JUSTICE’ (2006) #7

In 'Justice' (2006) #7, Captain Marvel outruns the Fastest Man Alive.
In ‘Justice’ (2006) #7, Captain Marvel (Shazam) outruns the Fastest Man Alive. AP Photo/DC Comics.

Throughout DC continuity, Captain Marvel (Shazam) has been recognized as Superman’s equal. As matter of fact, the “Justice” series proves this to be the case. In ‘Justice’ (2006) #7, the League recovers from an attack from the Legion of Doom.

On the ocean, Superman and Captain Marvel find Flash running. Atrociously, his accelerated metabolism prevents Flash from stopping to run. Sensing the danger, Superman admits only Captain Marvel may be able to save Flash. Then, the Captain has a plan.

Pouring on the speed, he catches up to Flash. In a flash of lightning bolt, he utters the magic word: Shazam! Then, he transforms back to Billy Batson and Barry is knocked out. Quickly, Superman saves them both.

In the issue, Barry states he can run around the planet in a heartbeat. Considering a human heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute, the World’s Mightiest Mortal travelled at 22 percent of the speed of light. Therefore, it is a reason why Captain Marvel may be faster than the Man of Steel.

IV. PLANETARY CLASS: MARTIANS

Finally, the Green and White Martians can think, run and fly at speeds multiple times the speed of sound. Incredibly, they can fly around the Earth in seconds. Some can even travel in space under their own power.

1. MARTIAN MANHUNTER, ‘JLA’ (2013) #5

In 'JLA' (2013) #5, Martian Manhunter flies from Mars to Earth.

2. ZUM, ‘JLA’ (1997) #3

In 'JLA' (1997) #3, Flash reveals Zum has the powers of Superman with some military training.

In the JLA’s first meeting with Hyperclan, Wally West battled Zum. In a race, the White Martian used military tactics and superior speed. As matter of fact, Zum was running so fast, he was creating after images. In some sense, he may have been approaching the speed of light. In fact, that is what it took for Flash to defeat Zum.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

THE STRONGEST MARVEL HEROES AND VILLAINS HAVE POTENTIAL FOR INFINITE STRENGTH

In ‘Avengers’ (2013) #4, Hyperion performs a super strength feat. In a flashback, Hyperion’s origin story is told: He survived the destruction of his home world in an incursion event that collapsed two universes together by holding them apart until they eventually collapsed. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

In the Marvel Universe, the strongest heroes are gods, aliens, cyborgs and superhumans. Super strength appears primarily to be a super power gained in addition to other super powers either by accident, enchantment, science or alien physiology. In particular, super strength is the result of being a god, mutant, alien or superhuman. The strongest heroes such as Thor or Hulk, perform feats of super strength in difficult situations. By our standards, the strongest heroes display the potential for infinite strength. This list ranks them according to their greatest feats of super strength.

TOP 10 MARVEL HEROES AND VILLAINS

1. HERCULES

In ‘Incredible Hercules’ (2008) #121, Hercules lifts the heavens. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

In the Olympian mythology, the heavens are the realm where the gods dwell and a potentially infinite dimension. In ‘Incredible Hercules’ (2008) #121, Hercules lifted the heavens to complete his Eleventh Labor. Here, Hercules demonstrated potentially infinite super strength. This feat has been talked about on the Internet and is the reason why Hercules deserves the top spot on this list.

In ‘Secret Wars II’ (1986) #8, the multiversal entity known as the Beyonder stated Hulk has the potential for unlimited super strength. At ScreenRant, Jose Caraballo tells a Bronze Age Hulk story. In a plot to defeat the Avengers, Kang the Conqueror theorizes the superhero team banded together in order to stop the Hulk. To this end, Kang travels from the 41st century to the present day Hulk.

Slyly, he tricks and recruits Hulk to time travel to World War I in order to prevent the Phantom Eagle from destroying an Axis super cannon. The effect would be to destroy a town where Hulk’s ancestors live thereby, preventing Hulk’s existence. During the time travel, the Green Goliath is caught in a time storm. Incredibly, Hulk punches through time with his fists to the precise time point in the past.

In general relativity, time travel requires an infinite amount of energy. This is definitely an infinite super strength feat.

In ‘Heroes Reborn’ (2021) #2, Hyperion recently took down the Hulk in a vicious battle. However, the Marcus Milton of Earth-13034 once performed a feat that showcased his potential for infinite strength. In his origin story, he briefly held back the incursion of two universes by holding apart the two Earths from colliding. Considering the kinetic energies involved, this is a potential for near infinite strength.

Sentry has been stated to possess the power of a million exploding suns and was introduced to be Marvel’s version of Superman. Over the years, Sentry has shown the potential for limitless power. During “Siege,” he briefly took on Thor and the Avengers assembled. While discovering his powers, he demolecularized the Molecule Man who has the powers of the Beyonders on the Multiversal scale. But what about super strength?

During “To Avenge The Earth” storyline, a reborn Sentry was brought in to save the day. To prepare against the coming of Exitar the Celestial, who was stomping the Earth, Rogue had to absorb the powers of the Avengers, X-Men, and various other superheroes. With those powers, Rogue was able to slow the descent of only one of Exitar’s feet. Proving he is stronger than all the heroes combined, Sentry was able to hold the other foot on his own super strength.

Considering the Celestials weigh 260 tons or more, slowing down their descent in free fall shows the potential for infinite strength.

Thor is a Marvel superhero with indomitable willpower. In battle, he always seems to push himself past his limits. In fact, he is the Asgardian God of Thunder. In “Thor: Worldengine,” Thor performs one of his most OP feats yet. Following his would-be murder, Yggdrasil is thrown in disarray and the Asgardians fear a new Ragnarok. Thor investigates and finds out about a Worldengine in New York tampering with Yggdrasil.

In a twist, it has convinced the World Tree that Ragnarok has already come and that Thor must be erased. In reality, the Worldengine forced Yggdrasil to bring about Ragnarok. Pushing himself past his limits, Thor pushed the Worldengine in order to push the nine worlds back to their original position and prevent Ragnarok.

Though this is not infinity, Thor’s overhyped feat demonstrates an unlimited amount of super strength.

Is Stormbreaker more powerful than Mjolnir? To this day, Beta Ray Bill remains Thor’s truest brother-in-arms. What makes Beta Ray Bill so powerful is that he is as worthy of Mjolnir as Thor is. In the comics, Stormbreaker is at least Mjolnir’s equal. Considering that Mjolnir’s worthiness enchantment is half of Thor’s power that means Mjolnir has at least Universal Level of power.

In ‘Stormbreaker: The Saga Of Beta Ray Bill’ (2005) #2, Galactus attempts to feed on New Korbin. Beta Ray Bill comes in and courageously engages Galactus in battle. Miraculously, Bill cracks Galactus’ armor with Stormbreaker. From “The Coming Of Galactus”, we learn that it takes the Ultimate Nullifier a weapon capable of laying waste to the Marvel Universe in order to defeat Galactus.

Though this is not infinity, Beta Ray Bill’s feat is Universal Level in super strength. Bill deserves a spot on this list for showcasing the potential for limitless super strength.

In ‘Hulk’ (2008) #4, Uatu the Watcher has come down to Earth at the Gamma Base in Nevada. Indeed, he has come to witness the battle between the Green Hulk and the Red Hulk. Suddenly, he is interrupted in his narration by Red Hulk who punches him. Then, Red Hulk pummels him on the floor but is stopped by Green Hulk.

Uatu has been stated to possess the power to shake galaxies. For every force, there is an equal and opposite reaction, making Red Hulk’s punch at least Galaxy Level.

Definitely a feat requiring an astronomical amount of super strength.

The Power Cosmic is Silver Surfer’s most awesome super power. It is a universal super power that grants him matter and energy manipulation, cosmic senses and durability, super strength and warp speed. Flying with his cosmic surfboard, Silver Surfer may have the fastest travel speed in the Marvel Universe.

Imagine moving the moon out of its orbit and slamming it into a cosmic supervillain at superluminal speed. That is what the Surfer did to save the planet called Newhaven! In ‘Silver Surfer’ (2015) #9, Silver Surfer moved the moon out of its orbit and slammed it into Galactus creating a giant cosmic explosion.

Throughout the cosmos, few are as feared as Gladiator. Praetor of the Shiar Imperial Guard, the Marvel powerhouse instills fear throughout the galaxy and commands respect. Much of Gladiator’s tremendous power comes from statements about him. He has beeen stated to be able to remove planets from their orbits and collapse stars with his bare hands. In fact, he does actually match some of these statements.

In ‘Marvel Comics Presents’ (1990) #49, a frustrated Gladiator flying through space, destroys a planet in a few blows. If we consider the planet Earth, Gladiator would have destroyed its gravitational binding energy reducing it to dust.

Invisible Woman is one of the Marvel powerhouses. To boot, her power extends to the Galaxy Level. Her main super power is the power to create force fields or force field bubbles. She has created force fields to withstand blows from Luke Cage, or to restrain Absorbing Man. In ‘Fantastic Four Unlimited’ (1993) #3, Invisible Woman proved why she is one of the most powerful members of the Fantastic Four.

In a scientific expedition to the Negative Zone, the Fantastic Four, Blastaar and Annihilus ended up inside a vortex or black hole. The team was protected by Annihilus’ cosmic control rod and Blastaar’s helmet. As they were being sucked into the vortex by its distortion waves, their tech starting wearing off and Reed started fearing for their lives. At that moment, Sue came to their rescue and created a force field inside the black hole. Thus, she proved why her power may be without limit!

Let’s list down Sue Storm’s five most fantastic super powers.

Invisible Woman has a form of cosmic awareness. In ‘Fantastic Four’ (2002) #62, Sue has turned Reed invisible so that he can work undetected in Times Square, New York. As Reed is working on mathematical equations, Sue asks him how it is possible for her to see him while he is invisible.

Cosmic Ray Awareness: Sue’s retina are able to detect cosmic rays as well as visible light. This allows her to perceive her own force fields and other invisible objects and, with concentration, can also provide her with a limited form of vision, allowing her to “see” even if blinded.

Oddly, Invisible Woman shares a super power with the Fantastic Four. In ‘Marvel 2-In-One’ (2018) #3, Reed Richards sends Thing and the Human Torch a message that he needs help as he is in danger in another universe. However, Human Torch has been experiencing some power loss and needs help. Then, Thing takes him to see Hercules who requested assistance from Zeus deprived him of his godly super powers. Surely, Surely, Hercules takes them to see Rachna Koul, a scientist that helps superheroes and supervillains with super power issues for money. Rachna tells them that the Fanastic Four have a super power synergism and the farther away they are from each other, the more they will lose their super powers.

Fantastic Four Power Synergism: The original members of the Fantastic Four are tethered to each other, and act as as their own conduits of power. They can be apart within their own universe and retain a connection, but prolonged periods cut off from each other in other universes result in a gradual decline in power levels. If they spend too much time separated this way, they would eventually become powerless.

In ‘Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Superman, Captain Marvel and other supermen in the DC multiverse are recruited by Monitrix Zillo Valla. They embark on a journey through the DC multiverse in order to stop the ultimate threat: Mandrakk, the Dark Monitor. Stranded on Limbo, Superman and Captain Marvel are guided by Merryman to the Library of Limbo to find repair manual for the damaged Ultima Thule. There, they lift the Book of Limbo, which has an infinite number of pages.

The book tells of the origin story of the Monitors. The Monitors are described as a race of hyper-gods with Dax Novu described as the first son of Monitor-Mind The Overvoid.

After the trauma of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the original solitary Monitor withdrew from reality to lick its wounds, only to discover that one of its wounds had left a scab in the shape of a giant superman made of divine metals. Believing that it was no longer possible for it to watch over its own, immeasurably large body, the Monitor began to subdivide itself. And the first of these subdivided Monitors was Dax Novu.

[…]

But what Novu found was a horrifying truth – the Monitors were parasites feeding on the Multiverse, and they were destroying it in the process.

When Superman embarks on his journey through the DC multiverse, Zillo Valla promises him the Bleed, the substance of life capable of healing Lois Lane who hangs between life and death at the hospital. When Superman and Ultraman are fused by Captain Adam into Thought Robot, Thought Robot ascends to the Nil to face Mandrakk. It is Cosmic Midnight, the door creeks, Mandrakk the Dark Monitor appears with the Bleed, or Ultramenstruum in his left hand. What is the Bleed?

In ‘Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Monitrix Zillo Valla promises Superman the Bleed to save the life of Lois Lane if he succeeds in stopping the ultimate threat. Valla reveals to Superman that the substance known as the Ultramenstruum is actually called the Bleed in the germ worlds. Apparently, the 52 universes of the DC multiverse all grew within the Bleed like crystals grow in solution.

In ‘Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, the Ultima Thule is being attacked by a Bleedstorm caused by the Destroyer “Echo Of Midnight.”1 In order to process what is happening, Superman upgrades to 4-D vision. From there, he is able to see the space between dimensions as 4-D space.

MANDRAKK FEEDS ON THE BLEED

From hyper-god, Dax Novu turned into a vampire god and fed on the DC multiverse; he became Mandrakk. It is this universal substance that Superman conquers after defeating Mandrakk with the Cosmic Armor. When Superman retrieves the Ultramenstruum from Mandrakk, the Dark Monitor can no longer feed on the DC multiverse and apparently dies, lost in Monitor-Mind The Overvoid.

A furious battle between Superman and Mandrakk occurred, during which Mandrakk killed Zillo without recognizing her, and blamed Superman for his mistake. Eventually, Superman was able to knock Mandrakk into the Overvoid, where eventually even the thought of Dax Novu faded, ending his threat. Unfortunately, Rox Ogama, who was similarly exiled for his treason, simply assumed the powers and mantle of Mandrakk himself.

In “Dark Nights: Metal,” we learn that Cosmic Armor Superman cast down Mandrakk in the Dark multiverse. Following Barbatos’ failed invasion of the DC multiverse, the Unexpected began to investigate a signal they believed to be an Nth metal isotope. They ended up at Nil.

Mandrakk revealed that he had never in fact perished during his conflict with Superman. Instead, his fall through the Overvoid ended in the Dark Multiverse. Determined to return to the proper multiverse and nourish himself on the Bleed, he began giving off a signal which individuals such as Quench foolishly believed was an invitation. In fact, it was bait, and he fed upon those who came to find him in order to crawl back out of the abyss, eventually arriving at Nil.

After Neon the Unknown and Quench were killed by Mandrakk, they resurrected before being annihilated by the World Forge. Gifted with the Fires of Creation, Neon the Unknown used his super powers to alter Mandrakk’s physiology: Mandrakk would now feed on the Dark multiverse instead of the Bleed. Finally, he was cast down into the Dark multiverse.

Super Power: Magneto’s Mastery Of Magnetism Is The Next Phase Of Human Evolution And Makes Him An Omega Level Mutant

SUPER POWER

Comics Explained

IN SUPERVILLAINS

WHY MAGNETO IS THE MASTER OF MAGNETISM

Magneto in ‘X-Men’ (1991) #1. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

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.
