IN MARTIAL ARTS

*To celebrate Black Panther: Wakanda Forever we publish this article on Marvel’s top two martial artists.

BLACK PANTHER AND CAPTAIN AMERICA ARE MARVEL’S TOP TWO MARTIAL ARTISTS

Today, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever releases with great celebration and excitement for the general audiences and for the African-American public.

With the passing of Chadwick Boseman, the torch has been passed to Letitia Wright who takes up the mantle of Black Panther in the titular role of Shuri. Though the heroine has yet to prove her feats similar to the comic, we will compare only T’Challa to Captain America.

In fact, since the Silver Age, the Black Panther-Captain America rivalry has taken on new heights. Indeed, many of their encounters involve Captain America infiltrating Wakanda on political missions or covert operations.

In most battles, the King of Wakanda has won though Captain America has held his own. With “Enter the Phoenix”, Phoenix-powered Captain America and Black Panther are the finalists in the Phoenix’s gladiatorial combats to become the entity’s next host.

Let’s look at how Black Panther’s martial arts and Captain America’s super soldier serum match against each other across various media.

TV: BLACK PANTHER DEFEATED CAPTAIN AMERICA IN THEIR FIRST ENCOUNTER

BETNetworks

In 2010, BET aired one season of Black Panther. Importantly, the six-episode series was a motion comic that introduced audienes to Wakanda and the world of Black Panther.

Perhaps, the first episode kicked into high gear with the first encounter between Black Panther and Captain America. True to the source material, Captain America is hunting down Nazi spies in Wakanda.

With fisticuffs and muscle-bound heroes, it appears Black Panther outclasses Captain America in strength, speed and fighting skill. In three powerful kicks, T’Challa knocks out the Star Spangled Banner.

In the end, Black Panther wins the battle though the mission is a failure.

FILM: BLACK PANTHER IS THE SRONGEST MARTIAL ARTIST

Movie Box

Really, Black Panther (2018) may be the most celebrated Marvel movie with the greatest cultural impact. Indeed, “Wakanda Forever” has become the popular motto of entertainers and fans alike celebrating African-American culture.

Perhaps, one of its least celebrated moments is the rhino scene during the final battle of the movie. When T’Challa returns to challenge Killmonger, he dons the suit and faces the Wakandan army. Powerfully, he tamed a white rhino stampeding.

Importantly, a white rhinoceros can weigh up to 2400 kg and stampede at 13.8582 meters per second. With a kinetic energy of 230459.648688 Joules, Black Panther performed a Room-Level feat that is well above Captain America’s strength-level.

FILM: CAPTAIN AMERICA IS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE’S BEST HAND-TO-HAND FIGHTER

TopMovieClips

Gloriously, Captain America showcases the Marvel Universe’s best battles. In Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War (2016), the Avengers are divided over the Sokovia Accords. On the pro-registration are Iron Man and his forces. Against registration are Captain America and his Avengers.

In the final battle, Captain America shows why his combination of strength, sill and fighting spirit is unmatched in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Importantly, Iron Man is at least a 10-tonner since he is able to move the turbines of the Helicarrier.

Gloriously, the Star-Spangled Banner withstands Iron Man’s barrage of punches and array of technology, in order to final overwhelm him with his superior fighting skills. As F.R.I.D.A.Y. states, Catain America is the best hand-to-hand fighter in the Marvel Universe who later triumhs over Tony.

Though, unlike Black Panther killing Killmonger, Captain America does not land Tony the killing blow with his shield.

COMIC: IN ENTER THE PHOENIX, BLACK PANTHER CLAIMS HE CAN KILL THE PHOENIX

Importantly, Black Panther claims during the series that he has the power to kill the Phoenix. As a martial artist, Black Panther is also a great mystic who can commune with supernatural forces.

For the most part, Black Panther and Captain America are portrayed as equals. Importantly, T’Challa has the advantage in strength, speed and is the deadlier fighter. Both fighters are protected by Vibranium as the Captain has a Vibranium Shield and the Black Panther Habit is powered by Vibranium.

Super Power: How Hulk and Thing Match in Super Strength (Film, TV and Comics)

 

SUPER POWER

In The Incredible Hulk (1971) #135, Hulk performs a super strength feat. Hulk punches through time to World War I. Marvel Comics.

IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER

HULK AND THING ARE MARVEL’S TWO STRONGEST MONSTERS

In 1962, Marvel comics features its historic first crossover between its characters. In Fantastic Four (1962) #12, the Hulk meets Thing and the Fantastic Four for the first time! In a clash of titans, Thing and Hulk battle to save Rick Jones who was kidnapped by the Wrecker.

In fact, since the 1960s, Thing and Hulk have been rivals and celebrated as equals. However, the Hulk-Thing rivalry changed over time, when it became clear that Hulk is a force of nature that dominates most fights, but Thing has a brave heart that will not back down.

Though in the 1980s, mutations in Thing’s abilities and the transformation into Grey Hulk favored Thing. In Fantastic Four (1988) #320, Doctor Doom manipulates the two monsters into fighting against each other. Incredibly, Thing defeats Hulk.

Let’s look at how Thing’s and Hulk’s super strengths match against each other across various media.

TV: THING MATCHES A HULK WITH MEMORY LOSS IN SUPER-STRENGTH

Red Symbiote

From 2013 to 2019, Marvel ran five seasons of Avengers Assemble (2019) on Disney XD. Importantly, the long-running show has been celebrated as one of the best Marvel cartoons. And it is well deserved. It featured important story arcs every season about the Avengers, even ending with a Black Panther story arc in season five.

Perhaps, the best Hulk moment of Season 1 was Hulk’s Day Out. In the episode, Hulk crashes to Earth with a message of doom. Importantly, Hulk has a memory loss and the Avengers must reconstruct his last 24 hours.

In a brief fight, it appears both fighters in the strength and durability departments are evenly matched. Really, their strength is so evenly matched that they lock arms and Captain America must use his shield to separate them.

In the end, the scuffle is a tie.

TV: HULK KNOCKS OUT THING TEMPORARILY


acviking20

Really, Fantastic Four: The World’s Greatest Heroes (2006) attempted to change the FF status quo. Though the series ran for only eight episodes from 2006 to 2007, ScreenRant commended its strong tone and eccentricity.

Particularly, episode 4 featured a powerful battle between the Fantastic Four and the Hulk. True to the comics, Thing appeared as the more skilled fighter though Hulk showed superior brute force.

Initially, both fighters are matched. However, Hulk actually becomes more savage by smashing Thing with cars and finally stomping him with Thing lifting a car above his head. At the same time, Invisible Woman and Human Torch have to step in in order to help.

In the end, with a trick taken from the comic, Mister Fantastic defeats Hulk with an ultrasonic device that reverts him to Bruce Banner.

FILM: THING CAN LIFT THE LONDON EYE

JoBlo Movie Clips

Though Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer (2007) received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, the general consensus is that it was superhero spectacle with a convoluted plot and insufficient characterization for its villains.

Perhaps, one of its least celebrated moments is the London Eye scene towards the beginning of the movie. Early on, Mister Fantastic is able to calculate the Silver Surfer‘s next cosmic phenomenon on Earth. Then, the Fantastic Four are off to London.

When a crater forms in the River Cruise, London is threatened and the FF must save the London Eye: While Thing supports the London Eye, Invisible Woman prevents people from falling and Mister Fantastic anchors it.

Importantly, the London Eye weighs 2100 tons. Over nine feet in the air, Thing generated 185409000 Joules of potential energy, for a City-Block Level feat.

FILM: HULK CAN STOP THE LEVIATHAN WITH A PUNCH

TopMovieClips

Really, Marvel’s The Avengers (2012) sports some of the best cinematic action. Perhaps, the movie is the best superhero movie of all-time. And it is well deserved.

In the final battle, the Avengers finally assemble in order to face Loki and the Chitauri invasion in New York City. When the situation seems hopeless, Hulk saves the day!

Certainly, Hulk’s Leviathan Punch is one of the greatest cinematic moments. In order to stop the three million tons monster travelling at the speed of sound, Bruce Banner changes into the Hulk instantly delivering a titanic punch that stops the monster in its tracks. Then, Iron Man blows it with a missile.

With 1.764735*1014 Watts of power, a Mountain-Level of Super Strength.

COMIC: THING BENCH PRESSED THE HYDRAULO-PRESS

Super Power: How Superman’s Super Powers Match Against Captain Marvel’s Power of SHAZAM (Film, TV and Comics)

 

SUPER POWER

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

IN SUPERHERO BATTLES

*In anticipation of Shazam: Fury Of The Gods we publish this article on DC’s top two heroes.

SUPERMAN AND SHAZAM ARE DC’S TWO STRONGEST HEROES

In 2009, Final Crisis closed one of DC’s most ambitious crossover event in years. During one of the multiverse’s most dramatic crises, the Supermen of the Multiverse were recruited to save it from impending annihilation by the vampire god Mandrakk. Importantly, Captain Marvel led in the final assault on the Dark monitor and Ultraman, with Superman as the witness.

In fact, since the 1930s, Superman and Captain Marvel have been rivals and celebrated as equals. From rivals Detective Comics and Fawcett Comics, their rivalry became a sensation when DC Comics acquired the rights to Captain Marvel in 1973.

In one of DC Comics’ darkest crises, Monitrix Zillo Valla recruits these two legendary superheroes and the Supermen of the multiverse to fight the ultimate enemy: Dark Monitor who feeds on the stories of the DC multiverse! It’s up to these two heroes to find the Ultramenstruum and save the DC multiverse.

Let’s look at how Superman’s super powers and Captain Marvel’s power of SHAZAM match against each other across various media.

 

ADVERTISE WITH US

TV: IN THE JLU EPISODE CLASH SUPERMAN IS THE BETTER FIGHTER

Blue Kryptonite

From 2004 to 2006, Warner Bros. Animation ran seasons 1 to 3 of Justice League Unlimited on Cartoon Network. To date, the cartoon has been celebrated as the best TV superhero show of all-time. At Gizmodo, the critic commends its ensemble cast, episodic nature and the strong characterization.

Perhaps, the high point of Season 2 was Clash. In the episode, the naive and well-meaning Captain Marvel comes to blows with the paranoid and cynical Superman over Lex Luthor supposedly turning over a new leaf in his presidential run and building a fusion-powered Lexor City.

With fisticuffs and muscle-bound heroes, it appears both fighters in the strength and speed departments are evenly matched. In fact, durability and fighting skills are the difference makers as Superman emerges as tougher and more experienced.

In the end, Superman wins the battle by dodging Shazam’s lightning blast and which blasts the World’s Mightiest Mortal, reverting him to Billy Batson. Then, Superman covers his mouth before he can utter the magic words.

TV: CAPTAIN MARVEL’S MAGIC CAN DEFEAT BLACK ADAM

DC-Marvel

Really, the DCAU has produced some remarkable animated films about its favorite characters. In Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam (DC Showcase), Black Adam returns after a five thousand year exile in space.

Particularly, the movie is part Shazam origin-story, part team-up and part Black Adam movie. Importantly, the movie features some impressive action sequences during the battles between the titular characters.

As we all know, Captain Marvel possesses the Wisdom of Solomon, the Strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles and the Speed of Mercury.

Once again, Superman and Black Adam are a match physically and in energy projection. However, Superman’s weakness to magic makes Captain Marvel more than his equal. In battle against Black Adam, Superman soon loses the advantage.

In the end, it is Captain Marvel that ends Black Adam’s rampage on Earth. Though not without some help from Superman with lessons on morality, protecting the weak, and not killing even his enemies.

FILM: SUPERMAN CAN ESCAPE A BLACK HOLE

Movieclips

Though Man of Steel received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, the general consensus is that it is an ambitious re-introduction of Superman to a modern audience. Particularly, it features incredible VFX that have impressed fans worldwide.

Perhaps, one of its least celebrated moments is the black hole scene towards the end of the movie. During the alien abduction, the digital Jor-El saves Lois and formulates a plan to defeat General Zod and the Kryptonians.

From Lois Lane, Superman learns they can stop the Kryptonian terraforming by colliding the World Engine ship with his rocket he escaped in when he was an infant.

Since both machines are powered by phantom drives, which bends space, a black hole is created. Soon, the Kryptonians are sucked into the Phantom Zone unable to escape. Heroically, Superman saves Lois Lane in free fall and escapes the Phantom Zone.

Importantly, since it is a black hole, and nothing, not even light can escape a black hole, Superman definitely travelled Faster-Than-Light to escape the back hole.

FILM: SHAZAM RIPPED OUT THE EYE OF SIN

Flashback FM

Soon, Shazam is becoming the DC Extended Universe’s new powerhouse. In his first live-action movie, Shazam!, the titular hero took on supernatural threats in Fawcett City. And he had help from the Shazam Family.

In the final battle, Shazam and the Shazam Family take on Doctor Sivana and the Seven Deadly Sins. In a supernatural battle, Shazam succeeds in blasting the Deadly Sin Envy freed from Sivana. However, he must still end Sivana’s threat.

In order to save Fawcett City, Shazam flies the powerless Sivana to the carnival where the Family is fighting the other Sins. Powerfully, he rips out the Eye of Sin from Sivana which contains all the Seven Deadly Sins.

In terms of power, at least a Mountain-Level of Super Strength since Black Adam unleashed them in the past, killing millions of people.

COMIC: IN FINAL CRISIS, SUPERMAN AND CAPTAIN MARVEL LIFTED A BOOK OF INFINITE PAGES

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

For the most part, Captain Marvel has served as a JLA reserve member to call upon when Superman is not available or in distress. In Justice (2006) #5, Captain Marvel answers Superman’s distress call as he is being attacked by the Legion of Doom.

At supersonic speed, the World’s Mightiest Mortal renders inoperable Solomon Grundy, Metallo, Parasite and Bizarro.

Super Power Explained: How Do Wolverine’s Powers Work?

 

SUPER POWER

Movie Car Chases HD

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

In Super Power Explained: How Do Doomsday’s Powers Work?, we attempted to explain Doomsday’s powers within Superman’s rogues and due to natural forces. Now, in our latest #ComicScience, we attempt to answer a popular #pregunta about the strangest of them all, Wolverine.

PHYSIOLOGICALLY, WOLVERINE IS A HUMAN-ANIMAL HYBRID

In 'Wolverine' (1982) #1, is Logan's first solo series. Marvel Comics.
Wolverine (1982) #2. Marvel Comics.

FIRST APPEARANCE

Perhaps, the most entertaining question in all of comicdom: How do #LosPoderesdeWolverine work? Though there have been few explanations for Wolverine’s uncanny super powers, the general idea is that they are due to mutations in the X-gene.

When Wolverine first appeared in Incredible Hulk (1974) #180, he debuted with a cameo and a bang. To begin, Hulk was on a rampage on the Canadian border and the Canadian Air Force deployed their secret weapon: Weapon X!

During a clash between Hulk and Wendigo in the forest, a third player makes his surprise appearance. Originally known as Weapon X, we later learn his name is… Wolverine. In the following issue, we learn of the foe’s ferocity and brutality, a match for Hulk and perhaps, #TheMostPowerfulHero.

WOLVERINE IS A HUMAN-ANIMAL HYBRID

During the 1960s, James Howlett (his real name) was enrolled in the Canadian Weapon X program. With his archnemesis Sabretooth, Silver Fox, Maverick, Kestrel and Mastodon they formed Team X. Weapon X was started in order to combat the mutant menace.

Early on, it was found that Wolverine’s unique genetic signature made him a mutant. In fact, his enhanced physiology, claws, senses, speed and strength added to his ferocity. After Wolverine becomes Weapon X, his skeleton is laced with indestructible Adamantium making him nearly invincible.

Particularly, with his enhanced physiology, retractable claws and animal senses it is clear that Wolverine’s evolution displays a hybridization of human DNA and animal DNA granting him various attributes.

For instance, Wolverine is at least as strong as a gorilla. Indeed, he is able to lift an elevator with two human occupants in it, weighing at minimum 2100 pounds or 454 kilograms. At a base level, Wolverine has Peak Human-Level of Super-Strength.

Since Wolverine is a mutant, we theorize that his unique abilities are each endowed from a different animal hybrid DNA, making Wolverine hypothetically able to transcribe and translate part of his junk DNA.

HOW WOLVERINE’S POWERS WORK

WHY WOLVERINE IS A GRIZZLY BEAR

1. WOLVERINE IS STRONGER THAN TEN GRIZZLY BEARS

Wolverine breaks the hardest steel chains. Marvel Comics.

In one issue, Wolverine is imprisoned by Mesmero in a circus lot. With Wolverine and the X-Men shackled, Logan’s survival instincts rise. Summoning his ferocious super-strength, Wolverine buckles one steel chain. Then, in one overwhelming effort, he destroys the chains.

According to Lifting Safety, a Grade 8/80 with chain size 7mm to 32mm has a mean stress of 800 newtons per squared milliiters. When we calculate, we assume the chains are hollow spheres of 50 millimiters and 30 millimiters outer radius and inner radius respectively.

With over 84446010.5285 Newtons of shear stress, Wolverine is able to exert more than 11000 pounds per square inch of pressure. In comparison, he is stronger than more than 15 grizzly bear that can exert 783 pounds per square inch of swipe force.

Certainly, the genetic composition of Wolverine’s DNA remains unknown. At the same time, it is possible that his evolution is both the product of mutation and genetic drift.

Particularly, with genetic combinations, Wolverine’s genome has inherited rare alleles from distant ancestors. Perhaps, transcribing and translating noncoding genes inherited from prior speciating events.

WHY WOLVERINE IS A BIG FELINE

2. WOLVERINE POSSESSES RETRACTABLE CLAWS

Wolverine vs Hulk. Marvel Comics.

In Incredible Hulk (1988) #340, we have a Hulk vs Wolverine deadly battle. After an accident, Wolverine is on the hunt for Hulk. Suddenly, Hulk sneaks up on him on the crash site and the battle is on!

Certainly, the hype factor about Wolverine is the defining feature of the anti-hero: his foot-long adamantium-laced claws! Let’s talk about why Wolverine may have inherited DNA from a distant prehistoric feline.

Currently, the candidate family of species that possesses retractable claws are the family of felines. These include the big cats like the tiger, the lion, the jaguar or the leopard. Particularly, their claws extend when they contract their paws and retract passively.

Certainly, claws are weapons and indicate predation like hunting, killing and feeding. Though Wolverine may or may not be a predator, he certainly has inherited a predator’s ferocity and their blood lust.

Moreover, Wolverine’s Adamantium claws can slice practically through anything. And Joe Fixit’s skin is durable enough to withstand incendiary missiles. Per our calculations, that’s 6459831520 calories of energy!

WHY WOLVERINE IS AN ALLIGATOR

WOLVERINE CAN REGENERATE LIMBS

Movie Box

In the X-Men movie, we learn about Wolverine’s remarkable abilities. Particularly, Logan’s mutation grants him a remarkable healing factor and an uncanny ability to regenerate limbs upon injury.

Although there are multiple animals that display this uncanny ability, it seems the closest ancestor to Wolverine’s genetic mutation is the alligator. Let’s explain.

In fact, other mammal species such as the Pliny mouse have demonstrated this ability. However, in Wolverine’s case, it is tied to his animalistic behavior and his violence. Certainly, the alligator is a choice because as an amphibian he is a close ancestor of vertebrates.

At the same time, it also explains Wolverine’s remarkable ferocity and berserker rage. Definitely, Wolverine is also an alligator, can survive 15 minutes without air and can swim.

Other super powers of Wolverine’s include his enhanced senses, his super speed and his mysterious healing factors. Though explanations are lacking, it is possible that they are all the results of the process of genetic hybridization. In the end, Wolverine is more animal than man.

ANSWER:

Wolverine’s mutation activates noncoding DNA inherited in the human genome through evolution. His remarkable animal mutations make him a human-animal hybrid displaying incredible adaptations.

Super Power Explained: How Do Doomsday’s Powers Work?

 

SUPER POWER

Flashback FM

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

In Super Power Explained: How Do Superman’s Powers Work?, we attempted to explain Superman’s powers within Byrne’s framework. Now, we attempt to answer a popular question about his deadliest nemesis, Doomsday.

PHYSIOLOGICALLY, DOOMSDAY IS A SOLAR BATTERY

Superman: The Man of Steel (1992) #18. DC Comics.

DEATH OF SUPERMAN

Perhaps, the most difficult question in all of comicdom: How do Doomsday’s powers work? Though there have been multiple explanations for Superman’s fantastic super powers under the yellow sun, there have been few for his nemesis’.

When Doomsday first appeared in Superman: The Man of Steel (1992) #18, very little was known of it. To begin, it escaped the bowels of the Earth and dug his way through to Earth’s surface. Then, it began its rampage across America; and Superman and the JLA had to stop it.

After the JLA was defeated, Superman was the only one left to stand against the monster. Soon, it became clear the creature was a foe of overwhelming power, and only an all-out Superman could stand a chance.

Heroically, the battle led to the Death of Superman in Metropolis, who stopped the monster.

DOOMSDAY’S ORIGIN STORY

A few years later, Doomsday creator Dan Jurgens gave fans an origin story about the creature. During the mini-series called Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey, we learn of the Legend of Krypton. Originally, the creature is a creation of geneticist, Bertron, on early Krypton.

Through forced evolution, the baby that evolved to become Doomsday was cloned and harvested after exposure to its harsh conditions. Finally, it was born: The Ultimate!

Particularly, with its powers of reactive evolution and immortality, Doomsday resurrects from death and evolves abilities beyond what killed it.

In the comic, the monster appeared every bit as ferocious and even powerful enough to put Darkseid near death. In the end, an amped Superman and Waverider triumphed over the monster by sending him to the end of the universe.

Since Doomsday is from Krypton, we theorize that he is also a solar battery similar to Superman. Though his rocky exterior precludes the existence of any organs, he may possess the ability of solar absorption through his rocky skin. Let’s explain its powers below.

HOW DOOMSDAY’S POWERS WORK

WHY DOOMSDAY IS AN ORGANIC LIFE-FORM

1. GRAPHITE IS A NATURAL MATERIAL WITH THE HIGHEST MELTING POINT ON EARTH

In Superman/Batman (2004) #10, Superman vaporizes an army of Doomsday animates with his heat vision. Though we rated the feat Stellar-Level in Energy Projection, let’s explain Doomsday’s durability.

In fact, H/P Doomsday withstood an explosion equal to a million nuclear blasts in his fight against Superman on Calaton. Indeed, Doomsday’s rocky exterior and his solid mass precludes the need for organs.

Moreover, we theorize that Doomsday’s rocky exterior is due to metamorphism and may be composed of graphite. In fact, we can explain Doomsday’s incredible durability, adaptation and controlled bone growth as results of this material.

When the creature was repeatedly exposed to the harsh environment on Krypton and its deadly creatures, it is possible that his body underwent metamorphism or even a process similar to the formation of igneous rocks in magma.

Since the primary feature of organic life is that it is carbon-based, it is possible that at least 99 percent of Doomsday’s body is composed of only carbon.

Certainly, the exact composition of his body is unknown but his rocky exterior suggests his skin is composed of the hardest materials on Earth, probably a hard and rocky material such as graphite. Importantly, graphite can have a melting point of 4000 degrees Celsius.

Also, we know graphite has out of space origins, from meteor deposits. Hence, it is possible for the material to have existed on prehistoric Krypton.

Moreover, Doomsday’s reactive evolution and controlled bone growth may be a metamorphism as a result of injury.

As the Batman v. Superman video suggests, injury seems to trigger this process of bone formation similar to igneous rock formation due to increased pressure and temperature inside the Earth.

2. THE PROCESS OF METAMORPHISM REQUIRES 75000 PSI IN THE EARTH'S MANTLE

Doomsday. DC Comics.

Generally speaking, Doomsday’s boundless super-strength is a result of extreme natural conditions. Since Doomsday was created on prehistoric Krypton, his physiology and appearance reflect the conditions of the era.

Moreover, we know the conditions inside the Earth’s mantle reflect more or less the harsh conditions on prehistoric Earth. Similarly, we theorize that Doomsday’s boundless super-strength and reactive evolution are suited to a more prehistoric environment.

In How does Graphite form: from pressure & temperature, we learn that the process of metamorphism requires 75000 pounds per square inch. In terms of force, that’s 6178474747.5 Newtons over Doomsday’s estimated 12 meter squared surface area.

Given that the pressure at the core of the Earth is 360 GigaPascals, Doomsday can reach Planetary-Level of Super Strength. However, his battles with Superman and Darkseid suggest the creature may have an unlimited amount of strength.

Moreover, since Superman has normal strength on Krypton, the gravity on Krypton has been estimated to be at least a 100G. In fact, it means under Sol, Doomsday is at least a 100 times stronger. Definitely, a Stellar to Solar System-Level of Super Strength.

In fact, his immortality and reactive evolution may be due to a molecular or nuclear bonding to natural forces and processes like volcanoes, geothermal vents or even earthquakes. In a sense, he is a force of nature.

WHY DOOMSDAY IS A SOLAR BATTERY

THE PHOTONUCLEIC EFFECT GRANTS ORGANIC MATTER NEW PROPERTIES

In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #3, Superman manages to permanently stop Doomsday. DC Comics

In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #3, Superman manages to permanently stop Doomsday. Using Waverider’s Temporal Transporter, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe killing it. Fortunately, Waverider recovers from Doomsday’s attack and saves Superman from death, transporting him back to the present.

In some respects, Doomsday may function as a solar battery or a reactor. Previously, we theorized that Superman functioned similarly. At the same time, the basis for Doomsday’s powers may be what is termed the Photonucleic Effect.

Under a class-G Yellow Star, Doomsday’s carbon atoms may have the ability to absorb sunlight granting them additional properties. As a result, the Kryptonian creature may display incredible abilities. In fact, early Krypton may have been under a yellow star.

Visit our article on Doomsday vs Hulk.

Certainly, Doomsday’s super-strength, super speed and immortality may be effects of the photonucleic effect. Though he has no cells, his solid mass does comprise of carbon atoms that have the potential to develop the abilities of a Kryptonian under a yellow sun.

ANSWER:

Doomsday’s rocky exterior and solid mass are the result of metamorphism on prehistoric Krypton.
Though it is debatable whether The Ultimate’s body is composed of genes, the force of nature derives its boundless strength and immortality from universal forces and the photonucleic effect.

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

IN MARTIAL ARTS

*To celebrate Thor: Love & Thunder currently showing, we publish this article on Marvel’s top two heroes.

SILVER SURFER AND THOR ARE MARVEL’S TWO STRONGEST HEROES

In 2021, King in Black concluded with an emphatic victory for Venom and Marvel heroes. After defeating Knull, Venom became the new King in Black endowed with omniscience and omnipotence. Though the power hierarchy at Marvel has changed, two heroes have remained its strongest defenders.

In fact, Silver Surfer and Thor are the heroes the Marvel Universe calls upon during the most critical times. When Knull battled the universe again, he invaded Earth with his hordes of dragons and Klyntar.

When all seemed hopeless, Cosmic King Thor battled Knull one-on-one but was eventually defeated. After, the Enigma Force used Silver Surfer who transported the God of Light to Earth to resume his epic battle against Knull. However, the Enigma Force chose Venom as Captain Universe.

Let’s look at how Silver Surfer’s Power Cosmic and Thor’s Enchanted Hammer match against each other across various media.

TV: THE POWER COSMIC IS FOR SPACE TRAVEL

Skelton Jerlene

In 1998, Marvel Entertainment Group produced Silver Surfer: The Animated Series. In a 13-episode season, the series showcased Surfer’s adventures across the cosmos in order to find his homeworld Zenn-La.

For the most part, the cosmic adventures broke story-rules and the finale even had an unexpected ending. However, one important aspect of the character is that the Power Cosmic grants him vast space travel powers.

In fact, the cosmic hero is able to engage in space battles against alien armadas, dodge comets or even travel through wormholes. In the finale, Silver Surfer even travels in a universe where time is flowing backwards!

TV: THOR’S MJOLNIR IS ENCHANTED

In What If? Season 1 Episode 7, in an alternature timeline Thor is raised without his adopted brother Loki. Certainly, he grows up a brash and party-loving youth. On Earth, Captain Marvel comes to stop Thor’s shenanigans.

Then, a rumble follows where both combatants spend more time testing each other than getting serious. In multiple instances, Mjolnir is lost but returns to Thor’s side. Certainly, the enchanted hammer is mystically linked to Thor and is the source of half the god’s power.

FILM: SILVER SURFER CAN DISH OUT PLANET-BUSTING ATTACKS

FilmeyBox

Though critics did not receive the first Fantastic Four film series very well, the movies still succeeded in captivating audiences. In fact, Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer delivered awesome action scenes and amazing visuals of Silver Surfer’s CG.

In fact, CBR.com commended the production team on the character design, on Silver Surfer’s other-worldliness and the use of his powers. Perhaps, the most exhilarating scene is the Human Torch‘s high-speed chase of SS from the New York overpass all the way to the upper atmosphere.

However, the conclusion of the movie raises the stakes. In order to save the Earth from impending doom, Silver Surfer dishes out a planet-busting attack and destroys the Devourer of Worlds. Here, the FX are a bit disappointing as Galactus appears as a cosmic space storm.

FILM: THOR’S MJOLNIR CAN BLOW UP A CITY

RAZR

Certainly, Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron performed massively at the box office internationally. However, at Rottentomatoes, critics criticized the film’s over-the-top action and villain. Nevertheless, the movie showed how much the Avengers can accomplish as a squad.

In the final battle, Thor and the Avengers have to battle Ultron and his robot copies in Sokovia in the air. And their objective is to protect the drill, Ultron wants to activate in order to send Sokovia into free fall. In the end, they manage to destroy most of the copies as well as the prime A.I.

However, one of the remaining sentries manages to activate the drill. As Sokovia enters free fall, Iron Man speeds to the bottom of the city, and Thor at the top. When Iron Man overloads the drill, Thor delivers a massive blast of lightning that destroys the city.

COMIC: SILVER SURFER CREATED THE SEEDS OF LIFE

In 'Silver Surfer' (2019) #5, Silver Surfer transforms his board into a sword.

In Silver Surfer: Black, the Sentinel of the Spaceways travels through a black hole and accidentally ends up at the beginning of time. In an effort, to end the threat of Galactus, Surfer ends up fighting Knull, the God of the Living Abyss.

Outmatched, Silver Surfer is contaminated by Knull’s darkness and is turning black. In their final battle, the Sentinel of the Spaceways realizes the threat to the universe. In order for darkness not to consume the beginning, Silver Surfer creates a star.

As the new Galactus is born with the universe, the light of the Surfer is the seed for the new universe. Incredibly, Silver Surfer manages to rout the powerful Knull.

COMIC: COSMIC KING THOR EXECUTED GALACTUS

Thor (2020) #6. Marvel Comics.

Perhaps, one of the most ground-breaking developments in Thor continuity. In order to stem the Black Winter, Galactus and Silver Surfer recruit King Thor’s help. Endowed with the Power Cosmic and Mjolnir, he becomes Cosmic King Thor, Herald of Thunder.

In the conclusion of the story arc, Thor actually executes Galactus for his numerous crimes and genocides using the powerful God blast.
