IN READING GUIDES, LISTS, REVIEWS

In the Marvel multiverse, the Avengers are the premiere superhero-team. In battles to defend Earth and the universe against villains, tyrants, and conquerors, two Avengers challenge each other for the title of Marvel’s Superman. Indeed, the battle for the title is between the Avenger Hyperion, and the Mighty Avenger Sentry.

Let’s list five reasons why Hyperion in his alternate versions is Marvel’s most powerful hero and five reasons why Sentry is Marvel’s Superman.

10. SENTRY WAS CREATED TO BE MARVEL’S SUPERMAN

Importantly, Sentry was created as an answer to DC’s flagship hero, Superman. Moreover, the context of the character’s creation involved a hoax concerning artist Artie Rosen’s sketches of Stan Lee’s forgotten sketches for a Marvel Silver age superhero. Certainly, the character debuted in Sentry (2000) #1, with great fanfare.

9. EARTH-616 HYPERION WAS THE FIRST MARVEL SUPERMAN

Indeed, Hyperion is the first Marvel Superman pastiche. In the classic Silver Age story, Avengers (1969) #69, Hyperion and the Squadron Sinister make their first appearance. In the comic, Grandmaster creates clones of the Squadron Supreme in order to defeat the Avengers. Certainly, this is Thor’s first true rival in the period.

8. SENTRY HAS THE POWER OF A MILLION EXPLODING SUNS

To promote the Marvel Superman moniker, Brian Bendis tells the origin story of Sentry in Dark Avengers (2010) #13. His civilian identity is Robert Reynolds, a drug addict who breaks into a Project: Sentry lab and ingests the Super Soldier Serum. Incredibly, he survives and gains the power of a million exploding suns. Later, he creates a costume and begins a superhero career.

7. HYPERION LEADS THE SQUADRON SUPREME, THE AVENGERS’ RIVALS

Comically, the Squadron Supreme is a Justice League pastiche. Among their members are: Hyperion their leader, Doctor Spectrum, Skylark, Whizzer, Power Princess, Haywire, Shape and Moonglow. In Avengers (1998) #5, the Avengers and the Squadron face-off for the title of Marvel’s premiere team. It turns out, the battle is a diversion for the villain Imus Champion’s scheme.

6. VOID SENTRY BATTLED MARVEL EARTH

Unfortunately, Sentry’s central hubris is his mental instability. With his bond to the vampiric entity named the Void, the Sentry may be the most powerful hero in the Marvel Universe. In Siege (2010) #4, Norman Osborn manipulates him to invade Asgard and battle Earth’s heroes. Tragically, he begs the God of Thunder to kill him in the Thor vs Void Sentry battle.

5. EARTH-712 HYPERION IS THOR’S MATCH

In Avengers (1998) #6, the Avengers and the Squadron Supreme get into round two of their battle. Once again, Hyperion proves to be Thor’s physical match. Later, it is shown that the Squadron Supreme was actually mind-controlled.

4. SENTRY ONCE STOPPED A CELESTIAL FROM STOMPING THE EARTH

Certainly, Sentry has proven that he is Marvel’s Superman. When the situation is critical, the Marvel Universe calls upon him. In Uncanny Avengers (2014) #21, Sentry with Rogue’s help saves the world from catastrophe. In a times of crisis, the Unity Division pools together the powers of all Avengers and X-Men into Rogue. Alongside the X-Woman, he stops Exitar‘s foot from stomping the Earth to destroy it.

3. EARTH-13034 HYPERION IS AN ETERNAL WHO SURVIVED A MULTIVERSAL INCURSION

Heroically, an alternate Hyperion faithfully parodies DC’s Superman in Avengers (2012) #1: On Earth-13034, Hyperion was sent to Earth as the only survivor from the race of Eternals. Adopted by a human, he is named Marcus Milton and taught morality. As an adult, he becomes a superhero with the Squadron Supreme. However, when a multiversal incusion occurs, Hyperion survives the two universes’ destruction and ends on the Earth-616 universe.

2. AN ALL-OUT SENTRY STALEMATED WORLD WAR HULK

 
Perhaps, World War Hulk is Hulk’s most powerful form yet. When Hulk returns to Earth from his banishment by the Illuminati on Skaar, the Jade Giant invades the planet. To put an end to gladiatorial combats, Sentry returns to Avengers service. In World War Hulk (2005) #5, an all-out battle follows where both combatants fight until both revert to their civilian identities. Though only Bruce Banner is left standing.

1. IN HEROES REBORN, AN ALTERNATE HYPERION DEFEATS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

Really, Hyperion is Marvel’s most powerful hero. In Heroes Reborn #2, Earth-TRN852 the Avengers do not exist. There, Hyperion and the Squadron Supreme protects America. When he sends Dr. Juggernaut to the Negative Zone, the villains escape. And he is forced to capture them all. Faced with the Hulk, Hyperion decides to kill the monster with his optic beams.

At the time, the now agent of the Army Security Agency, Connor Sims, visited his lab. To this end, they aimed to retrieve anti-matter from the Negative Zone through a Negative Reactor. Through the singularity, they would stabilize the positive and negative energies. Certainly, they intended to generate limitless clean energy. Suddenly, the device exploded and forever changed both men. Adam was knocked unconscious while Connor dissipated away. Later, Adam became a stable antimatter reactor while Connor would become Anti-Man, his nemesis.

As Blue Marvel, Adam possesses a plethora of super powers: Anti-Matter Energy Absorption Physiology, Superhuman Strength, Nigh Invulnerability, Anti-Matter Manipulation with Concussive Force Bolts, Energy Pulse, Force field, Flight, Longevity, Matter Manipulation, Energy Manipulation, Hyper-Cosmic Awareness.

Even more impressive, Blue Marvel possesses these powers at a level comparable to Sentry.

On the same day, he orders Blue Marvel to retire. Though initially conflicted, Blue Marvel eventually retires.

To stop Anti-Man from destroying the Earth, Blue Marvel plans to detonate the villain. In fact, he intends to contain the explosion and dissipate it into space. However, Iron Man and Mister Fantastic disagree. Violently, Blue Marvel storms out of Avengers Tower with the Mighty Avengers in pursuit.

After a brief scuffle with Iron Man, Ms. Marvel and Ares, Blue Marvel fights Sentry. Brutally, Sentry bludgeons Blue Marvel. When Robert realizes Blue Marvel has pushed him to the limits of his power, the #BlackSuperman punches him into orbit. Then, Sentry returns. Finally, aided by the Avengers, Robert gains the upper hand.

In the end, Blue Marvel collapses in the rubble.

ROOTING OUT RACISM, HE DEFEATED THE TEAM-WRECKER ANTI-MAN

In Adam: Legend Of The Blue Marvel (2009) #5, Blue Marvel detonates Anti-Man. Marvel Comics.

Originally, Anti-Man sought to combat racism by destructive methods. Though, he ended up nearly killing his best friend, Adam, an African-American. At the end of Adam: Legend Of The Blue Marvel (2009) #5, Blue Marvel detonates Anti-Man.

In the issue, Anti-Man is causing antimatter storms that are opening an aperture to the Negative Zone. Together with the Mighty Avengers, Blue Marvel succeeds in destabilizing Anti-Man’s molecular vibration frequency. Then, Blue Marvel causes the villain to explode in space. Fortunately, Blue Marvel successfully contains the explosion then dissipates the energy into space.

A propos, in an editorial, Michael Granger at You Don’t Read Comics shares his personal experience regarding Blue Marvel as #BlackSuperman and racism:

Some people love street-level heroes, Batman, Black Panther, Daredevil, and Spiderman, and so on. But my heart always had a place for the big heavy hitters, and finally, here was one that looked like me, who experienced racism, and whom I related to directly. As someone whose parents and uncles were raised in the Jim Crow south, who attended a predominantly white high school, and as a soldier, I couldn’t help but relate to the character.

Super Power Explained: THE Marvel Universe Strength Hierarchy Ranks The Top 10 Heroes And Villains By The Potential For Infinite Strength

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.

SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

INFINITE

Super Strength: Infinite 100%

2. HULK

In 'The Incredible Hulk' (1971) #135, Hulk punches through time to World War I.

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

Super Strength: Infinite 100%

3. HYPERION (MARCUS MILTON)

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.

SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

4. SENTRY

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.

SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

UNIVERSAL

Super Strength: Universal 83%

6. BETA RAY BILL

In 'Stormbreaker: The Saga Of Beta Ray Bill' (2005) #2, Beta Ray Bill cracks Galactus' armor with a Stormbreaker strike.

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.

SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

UNIVERSAL

Super Strength: Universal 83%

7. RED HULK

In 'Hulk' (2008) #4, Red Hulk punches out Uatu the Watcher.

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.

SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

GALAXY

Super Strength: Galaxy 75%

8. SILVER SURFER

In 'Silver Surfer' (2015) #9, Silver Surfer moves the moon out of orbit and slams it into Galactus at superluminal speed.

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.

Definitely a feat requiring an astronomical amount of super strength.

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.

Feat: Hyperion, ‘Avengers’ #4

 

HYPERION Marcus Milton
(Earth-13034)

In Avengers’ (2013) #4, titled “The Death and Resurrection of Major Titans”, 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.

How much strength does it take for Hyperion to hold apart two collapsing universes in an incursion event?
