SHE-HULK’S AND TITANIA’S BRIEF ORIGIN STORIES

SHE-HULK’S SOLO DEBUT

In ‘Savage She-Hulk’ (1980) #1, She-Hulk makes her first sensational debut. To begin, Bruce Banner is on the run from the police. In the issue, he has come to seek Jennifer Walters’ help. Fearfully, Bruce confides his secret to his cousin. Learning he is the Hulk, she decides to take him home. Jennifer tells Bruce she is working on a criminal law case. In fact, she is defending a hood called Monkton accused of killing Trask’s bodyguard.

JENNIFER WALTERS BECOMES SHE-HULK

On the way, Jennifer is shot by Trask’s men. Frantically, he takes her to a doctor’s office. Unfortunately, there is no one available at the door and Bruce breaks in. Quickly, he performs a blood transfusion since they are the same blood type. Later, at the hospital, Jennifer is attacked by three of Trask’s henchmen. Overcoming chloroform intoxication, Jennifer transforms into… She-Hulk. Then, she is in hot pursuit of Trask’s men later capturing them.

TITANIA’S BACK STORY

In ‘She-Hulk’ (2005) #10, we learn about Titania’s back story. In space, an alien visits the Watcher named Zoma. Strangely, he wants information on Titania. In fact, he requires it in order to destroy their common enemy: She-Hulk.

BORN MARY MACPHERRAN

Surely, Zoma tells him Titania was born prematurely in Denver, Colorado. As a result, she was born tiny with stunted development. Indeed, her real name is Mary McPherran. Over the years, Mary developed fantasies about prince charming and fairy tales. Entering the public school system, her classmates rejected her for being small and “puny.”1 Only Marsha Rosenberg accepted her who was made fun of because of her weight.

MARY MACPHERRAN BECOMES TITANIA

As an adult, Mary fantasized about her friends’ successful lives. When she discovered comic books, she fantasized about gaining superpowers and getting revenge on her enemies. In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1984) #3, Mary and Marsha were transported to Battleworld by Beyonder. There, they were granted super powers by Doctor Doom. To sum, Mary became Titania and Marsha became Volcana.

ON BATTLEWORLD, THE RIVALRY BEGINS

 

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1984) #3, the Wrecking Crew bring an ominous present to the heroes. More to the point, it is the near-lifeless body of the Wasp. Frantically, She-Hulk brings her to Zsaji for healing. Despite her gifts, Zsaji is unable to heal Wasp. Horrified, Hawkeye pronounces her dead.

As the heroes contemplate fighting back, Captain America warns them of a Galactus attack. On her own, She-Hulk goes to seek revenge. At Doombase, She-Hulk makes short work of the Wrecking Crew. Then, the Avenger meets Titania. Defiantly, Titania believes herself a Titan and the strongest. When she meets She-Hulk for the first time, she tests her super strength against her match.

EXHIBIT A: MAYHEM AND “CUDDLES” (FLIRTATIOUS)

In ‘Solo Avengers’ (1989) #14, Jennifer Walters is at the Supreme Court arguing aginst the Mutant Registration Act. Suddenly, she is interrupted by a man who tells her she is urgently needed. Recognizing Avenger business, Court goes into recess.

While she changes into costume in a phone booth, a police officer holds off a crowd of onlookers. Excited, the officer takes a peek. To this, she reacts by noting that all men are pigs. Outside, She-Hulk finds her playmate, Titania. Angrily, Titania is thrashing a car and spelling her name.

“Hi, Cuddles.”2 To begin, She-Hulk greets the powerhouse with a tap on her right shoulder. Indeed, She-Hulk/Titania matches are plenty of playful banter. In some sense, the two powerhouses flirt in order to size up one another.

Next, as the pair exchanges a question and answer, She-Hulk lands a punch that sends Titania flying before she can finish her sentence. Really, the punch packed a wallop landing the villain across the Potomic in Virginia.

“FIRST TIME WE MET, BABYCAKES...”2 In Round Three of the match, Titania references the first battle on Battleworld. Chaotically, she slams a car onto She-Hulk.

To end the match, She-Hulk reminds Titania of a truism: The madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. After an explosion, She-Hulk holds Titania by the throat. Angry, she convinces the criminal to turn herself in and reform.

EXHIBIT B: “GREENIE” AND REVENGE (FEISTY)

In ‘She-Hulk’ (2005) #11, the She-Hulk/Titania rivalry plays for keeps. In the issue, the former Champion of the Universe has bestowed Titania with the Power Gem. Chiefly, it is for the purpose of revenge on She-Hulk. When the villain sees Champion can no longer re-claim the Power Gem, she drops a rock on him.

Then, she’s off to revenge. After thrashing the Excelsior Apartments, Titania destroys Timely Plaza. There, the powerhouse meets She-Hulk and Doc Samson. At the time, She-Hulk wore a Jupiter Suit in order to control her super powers. During the fight, Doc Samson is knocked out. “Really? From love taps like that?”3 Jennifer’s first thumping attack creates a bounce back. Once again, Titania starts a fight.

Ha. Trust me, honey, today I’m just full of possibilities.3 After a punch that rocked an explosion, Titania caught it full-on with ease. The phrase, perhaps an innuendo presaged Titania’s superiority and the dark turn of their rivalry.

Certainly, given their history, we can wonder whether the She-Hulk/Titania rivalry is a relationship. Particularly, we address this in Exhibit C. In many respects, She-Hulk and Titania play off each other very well.

“face it, Greenie.” These are Titania’s words before landing the final blow. With a stomp, She-Hulk loses consciousness and reverts to her human form.

Definitely, the rivalry is feisty. Here, Titania plays for keeps and with the Power Gem she has infinite super strength. In this battle, She-Hulk likely does not survive.

EXHIBIT C: EMPLOYMENT AND “GIRL” (FLIRTATIOUS)

In ‘Sensational She-Hulk’ (1993) #52, Titania seeks redemption from her criminal career. To begin, Mister Fantastic needs to examine She-Hulk. During a battle with War Zone, She-Hulk was sprayed with a gas. To this end, Reed sends Thing to collect Jennifer at Libido’s Boutique.

There, Mary MacPherran is applying for a job. However, she loses her temper when she is turned down due to her criminal past. When Titania starts destroying the place, Jennifer comes out of the fitting room to fight her. Then let’s get busy, shall we?4

“You’re such a pushover today, girl.”4 Here, the She-Hulk/Titania relationship gets more personal. In fact, dare we say more romantic? At Nerdist, Eric Diaz states later in their history, Jennifer even helped Titania set up a pawn shop. Though, it didn’t last. Of course, the two ladies are fighting in a lingerie shop.

On her first punch, She-Hulk comments that Titania may have gotten tougher. In fact, Titania even punches the heroine into Thing. Then, she throws her onto the streets of New York. When Titania has gained the upper hand, she stops and smells roses. Definitely, this is a flirtatious move by the powerhouse. In the end, it turns out She-Hulk has been losing her strength due to the gas.

STAN LEE’S FAVORITE VILLAIN

Doctor Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Originally, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 (1962) #5.

Interviewed by leukemia survivor KJ Ricci, Stan Lee revealed Doctor Doom is his favorite supervillain. The legendary writer said he does not see Doom as a villain and would like to clear his name.

THE POWER COSMIC

DOCTOR DOOM ABSORBED GALACTUS’ + TAA II’S POWER

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom steals Galactus’ Power Cosmic. Previously, Galactus absorbs the energy of Taa II. Possibly, Galactus with Taa II’s might equal the Beyonder in battle. However, using the Klaw discs, Doctor Doom siphons Galactus’ Power Cosmic.

In his new-found omnipotence, Doctor Doom’s senses expand. Really, Doom realizes his cosmic senses encompass all reality. Inside their cells, the Baron of Iron is aware of the villains’ secret thoughts and desires. Furthermore, he is aware of an intruder, Captain Marvel.

BATTLE AT THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Immediately, Doctor Doom battled Beyonder in the Beyond-Realm. Incredibly, the battle was so fierce that it sent shockwaves through space. In fact, Battleworld was feeling quakes as a result of the titanic battle.

However, Doctor Doom is soon overwhelmed by the Beyonder’s godly power. Desperately, the Destroyer beams an image of himself back to Battleworld. Before the assembled heroes, he asks for their powers. Hesitantly, Magneto steps forward. Quickly, he is tackled by Wasp, Hawkeye and Iron Man.

DOCTOR DOOM’S SUPREME WILLPOWER

DOCTOR DOOM DENIES DEATH

With his last ply thwarted, the tide of the battle turns against Doom. Courageously, Doctor Doom attempts to grow nearer. But, the Beyonder’s infinite power doubles his onslaught. Finally, in bursts of energy blasts, Doom’s legs are cut off and he is felled.

Tragically, the Baron of Iron feels the “cold embrace [of Mistress Death] seems imminent.”1 Defiantly, Doctor Doom rejects the Spectre. His words ring out: “Victor Von Doom must not die!”1

VICTOR VON DOOM STEALS THE BEYONDER’S POWER

With his foe defeated, Beyonder comes down to examine him. Intrigued, he peers through Doom’s life. Moreover, he dissects Doom apart, layer by layer. Proving his willpower is supreme, Doom resists the agonizing pain.

Soon, the Beyonder grows closer to his subject. Incredibly, Victor Von Doom reaches for the Beyonder’s disembodied energy. In the end, Doom steals the Beyonder’s infinite power.

SILVER SURFER (NORRIN RADD)
EARTH-616

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (2015) #9 titled “Slingshot”, Silver Surfer performs a super strength feat. Galactus has come to Newhaven in order to consume it. To fight Galactus, Silver Surfer anchors his board at the opposite pole of the moon, moves it and slams it into Galactus at superluminal speeds.

How much super strength does it take for Silver Surfer to move the moon at superluminal speeds?

Silver Surfer moves the moon at superluminal speeds.

We will calculate the kinetic energy to estimate the force.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

Let’s calculate the kinetic energy.

KE = (1/2)(mc2) = (7.34767309 × 1022 kg x 0.5)(3*108 m/s)^2) = 3.3064529*1039 J.

Let’s assume Galactus is in low orbit, around 1000 km above Newhaven and the moon is 384.4 million meters away.

W = Fd = KE. F = KE/d = (3.3064529*1039 J)/(384.4*106 m + 100000 m) = 8.5993573*1030 N.

SUPER STRENGTH



Silver Surfer generated 8.5993573*1030 N of force to move the moon at superluminal speeds slamming it into Galactus. Silver Surfer had to generate a Galaxy Level of Super Strength since he likely hit Galactus with a force 0.24291969774 percent the total gravitational force of the Milky Way.

KE Of Moon = (1/2)(mc2) = (7.34767309 × 1022 kg x 0.5)(3*10^8 m/s)^2) = 3.3064529*10^39 J.
W = Fd = KE. F = KE/d = (3.3064529*10^39 J)/(384.4*106 m + 100000 m) = 8.5993573*10^30 N.

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

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.

THE ENERGY PROJECTION OF THE BEYONDER COMES FROM BEYOND THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AND IS ZERO SUM ENERGY. DOCTOR DOOM BECAME THE SUPREME BEING IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE.

VISIT OUR CALCULATIONS

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. However, in the second example, since Doctor Doom is able to overpower a true godlike being and become the Supreme Being in the Marvel Universe, his Intelligence Level is Universal.

Doctor Doom had to generate a Universal Level of Intelligence in order to overpower Beyonder with his willpower.

In a last effort, Mephisto asks the Silver Surfer to pledge his soul or else, he will send Shalla Bal to Zenn-La and the Silver Surfer will be separated from Shalla Bal forever.

In a last ditch effort, Silver Surfer attempts to touch Shalla Bal’s right hand but Mephisto does not grant even that. Silver Surfer’s love for Shalla Bal wins the battle, but he is heartbroken.

In the cosmic hierarchy, Galactus maintains the cosmic order by consuming the living energy of planets, whether they are inhabited or not. Galactus has a cosmic hunger which is his weakness and his burden as a cosmic entity.

TAA II IS GALACTUS’ SOLAR SYSTEM-SIZED HOME

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

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

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

Read on!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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