Thanos has conquered the Infinity Gems and become the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe with the Infinity Gauntlet. Thanos snaps his fingers in order to erase half the sentient life in the universe. In reality, he erased half the sentient life in the Milky Way galaxy.

We will use this statement to estimate Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet snap.

THANOS’ INFINITY GAUNTLET SNAP


In ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ (1991) #1, Thanos snaps his fingers with the Infinity Gauntlet to erase half the population in the universe. In reality, in ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ (1991) #2, we find out from Issac’s transmission to Starfox on Titan that when Thanos snapped his fingers, he erased half the population in the galaxy. Since Titan is located in the Milky Way galaxy, we know it is half the population in the Milky Way galaxy.

In 'Infinity Gauntlet' (1991) #2, Issac tells Firefox, Drax and Starlord that Thanos erased half the population of the Milky Way galaxy.In ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ (1991) #2, Issac tells Firefox, Drax and Starlord that Thanos erased half the population of the Milky Way galaxy. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

In addition, in ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ (1991) #1, Silver Surfer crashes into Doctor Strange‘s Sanctum to alert him of Thanos’ menace. After the Thanos snap, Silver Surfer’s cosmic awareness estimates that Thanos erased “billions upon billions” of lives.1

NUMBER CRUNCHING



Since Thanos erased half of the population in the Milky Way galaxy, we can state that he deleted their genetic information. Let’s calculate the bytes of information in the genomes of all the humanoid races in the Milky Way galaxy. There are 96 races in the Milky Way galaxy. Assuming they are either humanoid or semi-humanoid, we can estimate the bytes of information in their genetic codes by using humans as a reference.

According to BiteSizeBio, the human body stores 150*1021 bytes of genetic information. Of course, alien races likely contain more or less genetic information. However, since we want an estimate for humanoid or semi-humanoid races in the Milky Way galaxy, we will assume they are more or less human.

Since the Silver Surfer stated there were “billions upon billions” that were erased, we assume the total humanoid population in the Milky Way galaxy is 109 * 109 = 1018 humans.

Information = (150*1021 bytes)(1018 humans) = 1.5*1041 bytes.
Biochemical Energy = (1.5*1041 bytes* 1 day * 1 J/K * 310.15 K)/(24 hr * 3600s * 0.125 byte) = 4.3076389*1039 J/s.

ENERGY PROJECTION


Thanos generated 4.3076389*1039 J/s of energy projection. Thanos had to generate a Multi-Galaxy Level of Energy Projection since he likely deleted half the population in the galaxy with 7.80369365942 times greater than the energy radiated by the stars in the Milky Way and Andromeda.

Energy in Milky Way and Andromeda = 5.52×10^38 J/s.
Genetic Information In Human Body = 150*10^21 bytes.

Magneto counters Iron Man‘s interplanetary absorption of the interplanetary magnetic field with the Bleeding Edge Armor. Since Magneto uses the power of the sun we can assume it is the heliosphere.

We will use the heliosphere magnetic field strength to rate Magneto’s energy projection.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

According to The Heliosphere, Sol’s heliosphere has a magnetic field strength of 0.3 nanoTesla.

Let’s convert it in Gauss. One Gauss = 10^4 Tesla.

Magnetic Field = 0.3 nanoTesla = 0.3 * 10^-9 * 10^4 = 3 microGauss.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Magneto siphoned the energy of Sol’s heliosphere in order to counter Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge interplanetary energy absorption.

Magneto generated 3 microGauss of energy. Magneto had to generate a Solar System Level of Energy Projection in order to siphon the magnetic field of the heliosphere.

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1984) #4, titled “Situation Hopeless”, Molecule Man performs an energy projection feat. The villains have attacked and destroyed the heroes’ base. As the heroes are in retreat, Molecule Man drops a 150-billion ton mountain on the heroes, seemingly killing them.

How much energy projection does it take for Molecule Man to drop a 150-billion ton mountain on the heroes with molecular manipulation?

Doctor Doom and the villains have destroyed the heroes’ base. As the heroes retreat, Molecule Man drops a mountain on them, seemingly killing them.

We will use the formula for potential energy in order to calculate Molecule Man’s energy projection.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

The calculations involve calculating how much energy projection it would take to remove the mountain off the ground, and how much it would take to drop the mountain on the heroes. Calculating a lift force for a mountain would be complex. For the interest of simplicity, we will only calculate the kinetic energy for transporting the mountain across 10 km and the potential energy before dropping it on the heroes.

KE = 1/2mv^2 = (1/2)(150*10^12 kg)(10^8 m/s) = 7.5*10^21 J.

PE = mgh = (150*10^12 kg)(9.81 m/s^2)(160934 m) = 2.3681438*10^20 J.

Total Energy = 7.7368144*10^21 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Molecule Man lifted a mountain, transported it across Battleworld within moments, hovered it 100 miles above the heroes and dropped it on them.

Molecule Man generated 7.7368144*10^21 Joules of energy. Assuming Battleworld is roughly the size of Earth, Molecule Man had to generate a Planetary Level of Energy Projection.

The Quintessence are surveying Earth Omega. Wonder Woman had sensed a new threat and the Quintessence hid from her their imprisoning it on Earth Omega. Suddenly, true form Darkseid attacks the Quintessence from behind, killing them.

We will use the energy of Doctor Manhattan to estimate the Quintessence’s power.

THE QUINTESSENCE AND DOCTOR MANHATTAN

In “Dark Nights: Death Metal (2020) #1”, Wonder Woman meets Wally West in Themyscira which has been turned into a prison hell. Wally is powered by Doctor Manhattan’s Positive energy and explains the Justice League’s battle against Perpetua: Perpetua created the Prime multiverse using Crisis energy and the Positive energy from Doctor Manhattan granted to the Justice League by the Quintessence was not sufficient. Ultimately, Perpetua won the battle.

Since the Quintessence is able to manipulate the Positive energy at the multiversal level, its Energy Projection is at least Multiversal Level.

In ‘Watchmen’ (1986), Doctor Manhattan claims to be able to see his past, present and future timeline. Doctor Manhattan’s main super power is to be present to all points in time in the DC multiverse.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

Doctor Manhattan has the power of nigh-omnipresence since he is present to the past, the present and the future. This indicates Doctor Manhattan is likely present 20 billion years ago in the Prime Earth multiverse created by Perpetua. To calculate his nigh-omnipresence is simply to estimate the total energy of Perpetua’s Prime Earth multiverse. Since it extends to the Sixth Dimension, that energy is infinite.

ENERGY PROJECTION

True form Darkseid freed himself and killed the Quintessence in a surprise attack.

True form Darkseid generated a Boundless Level of Energy Projection.

Feat: Silver Surfer, ‘Silver Surfer’ #4

IN SUPERHERO BATTLES

SILVER SURFER (NORRIN RADD)
EARTH-616

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (1969) #4, titled “The Good, The Bad And The Uncanny!”, Silver Surfer performs an energy projection feat. Loki has mischievously brought Silver Surfer to kill Thor. Silver Surfer challenges Thor, though unbeknownst to him, Loki has added to his power. During the battle, Silver Surfer’s Power Cosmic encases Mjolnir in a cosmic field preventing Thor from reaching the Uru hammer.

How much energy projection does it take for Silver Surfer to encase Mjolnir in a cosmic field, preventing Thor from reaching the Uru hammer?

Silver Surfer used the Power Cosmic to encase Mjolnir in a cosmic field to prevent Thor from reaching the Uru hammer. With Loki’s power augmenting his Power Cosmic, Silver Surfer prevented the enchantment on Thor’s hammer such that Mjolnir would not reach Thor.

SILVER SURFER BROKE THE WORTHINESS ENCHANTMENT ON MJOLNIR REDUCING THOR TO HALF POWER, THE EQUIVALENT OF HALF OF THE UNIVERSE’S ZERO SUM ENERGY, WITH 4.0296675*10^62 JOULES OF KINETIC ENERGY.

Silver Surfer has been brought to Asgard by Loki’s mischief. His mission is to kill Thor in order to stop a purported war. Silver Surfer challenges Thor to a duel. During the battle, Silver Surfer uses the Power Cosmic to encase Mjolnir in a cosmic field to prevent Thor from reaching the Uru hammer. With Loki’s power augmenting his Power Cosmic, Silver Surfer prevented the enchantment on Thor’s hammer such that Mjolnir would not reach Thor.

We will use the mystical enchantment on Mjolnir in order to calculate the Silver Surfer’s energy projection.

THOR’S MJOLNIR

In ‘Journey Into Mystery’ (1964) #101, Thor has fallen in love with mortal Jane Foster. As he prepares to go to Asgard to plead his case to marry Jane, Loki projects a vision of Thor to Odin showing his plans. Odin decreases the worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir by half and bans Thor from Asgard until he renounces his love.

Mjolnir increases Thor’s power by half. Let’s estimate Thor’s energy projection from his highest power output which is the God Blast.

First, let’s estimate Galactus’ durability. In ‘Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic retrieves the Ultimate Nullifier with the Human Torch’s help in order to stop Galactus from consuming the Earth. Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier who states Mister Fantastic has “the means to destroy a galaxy… to lay waste to a universe!!”1

The statement indicates Galactus is Universal Level in Durability. In ‘Thor’ (1969) #161, Thor unleashes the God Blast on Galactus in order to stop the fight between Galactus and Ego the Living Planet.

Since Thor’s God Blast put Galactus near death, it is at least Universal Level in Energy Projection.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

The worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir gives Thor half of his divine power. The worthiness enchantment has been broken by Thor, the Red Norvell, Beta Ray Bill, and Captain America. They all have in common that they embrace the warrior code. Thor’s highest power, the God Blast, is Universal Level in Energy Projection. Thor does not need Mjolnir in order to project this super power and even at half power, can release it on his own.

Even at half power, Thor is Universal Level in Energy Projection. Since the universe has zero sum energy, Thor’s Energy Projection is half of that energy which equals the kinetic energy of the universe in expansion.

Kinetic Energy Of Universe Expansion = (0.5 * 1.5×10^53 kg)(73300^2 m/s) = 4.0296675*10^62 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Augmented by Loki, Silver Surfer was able to break the worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir. The worthiness enchantment grants Thor half of his power which is Universal Level in Energy Projection.

Silver Surfer generated half of the energy of the universe in Energy Projection. In order to encase Mjolnir in his cosmic field, Silver Surfer had to generate the kinetic energy of the universe, a Universal Level of Energy Projection.

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.

Superman has been turned into the Anti-Living by the Anti-Life Virus. Faced with overwhelming odds at the arrival of the Green Lantern Corps, Superman heads for the sun. Superman absorbs Sol condemning the solar system to grow cold and die.

We will use the lifetime of the sun in order to calculate the energy projection of Superman.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

Superman absorbed Sol causing the yellow sun to collapse and turn supernova within a minute. According to Homework 7 : Sunshine & Sunspots, the fusion process normally converts 0.7 percent of the mass of the sun to energy and uses 10 percent of its mass. In Superman’s case, since the process took about a minute, the fusion process used 100 percent of the sun’s mass.

Let’s calculate the amount of energy in the supernova.

E = mc2 = (0.007)(2*10^30 kg)(3*10^8 m/s)^2 = 1.26*1045 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Superman absorbed the energy of Sol, triggering a fusion process that caused Sol to go supernova within a minute.

DOCTOR DOOM (VICTOR VON DOOM)
EARTH-616

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, titled “Death To The Beyonder”, Doctor Doom performs an intelligence feat. In order to confront Beyonder, Doctor Doom steals power from Galactus and Taa II. During the battle against Beyonder, Beyonder dissects Doctor Doom’s body who eventually steals Beyonder’s power.

How much intelligence is generated by Doctor Doom absorbing Beyonder’s power?

DOCTOR DOOM STOLE THE BEYONDER’S POWER IN THE BEYONDER’S REALM BY THE STRONGEST WILLPOWER.

Doctor Doom fought the Beyonder in the Beyond realm using the energy of Taa II. Doctor Doom was defeated and survived dissection by the Beyonder. Using his willpower, Doctor Doom overpowered Beyonder and stole his power.

Let’s estimate Doctor Doom’s willpower.

DOCTOR DOOM’S WILLPOWER

Doctor Doom has one of the strongest willpowers in the Marvel Universe. He has peered into millions of futures and he believes Doomworld is the only future where there is peace on Earth. In ‘The Avengers: Emperor Doom,’ Doctor Doom kidnaps the Purple Man in an attempt to mind control the whole Earth. In a duel, with the Purple Man, Doctor Doom resists the Purple Man’s mind control powers with his willpower alone.

In ‘The Avengers: Emperor Doom,’ in a duel, with the Purple Man, Doctor Doom resists the Purple Man’s mind control powers with his willpower alone.

Since Doctor Doom withstood Purple Man’s mind control whose powers were used to mind control the Earth, Doctor Doom’s willpower is at least Inventor.

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom uses his willpower to steal the Beyonder’s power. In the scans, after Doctor Doom has stolen the Beyonder’s power and appears as a giant to the heroes, he claims to be the most powerful being in the Marvel Universe.

We will use these two examples to estimate Doctor Doom’s willpower.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In the first example, since Doctor Doom resisted the Purple Man’s mind control, which was later used to mind control the Earth, his willpower is at least Inventor. Willpower is a function of mental power, so let’s calculate the power of Doctor Doom’s mind. Please refer to the Intelligence Scale.

Bytes Of Information In Doctor Doom’s Brain = (7,874,965,825 humans)(2.510*10^15 bytes)/(1 human) = 1.9766164*10^25 bytes.

In the second example, Doctor Doom overpowered Beyonder with his willpower, or the power of his mind. Since after stealing Beyonder’s power, Doctor Doom became the most powerful being in the Marvel Universe, we can estimate that his intelligence is at least equal to the Beyonder’s intelligence.

INTELLIGENCE

Since in the What If story, Doctor Doom was able to withstand the Purple Man’s mind control, it would seem his Intelligence Level is Mathematical Computation.
