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 Strongest Avenger. Indeed, the Thor-Hulk rivalry has been since the classic era and continues to this day. Hulk, is the Jade Giant with infinite strength and rage, and Thor is the Thunder God and protector of Earth.

Let’s list five reasons why Hulk’s monstrous strength makes him the Strongest Avenger and five reasons why Thor’s godly power contends for the Strongest Avenger.

10. THOR MATCHED HULK IN AN HOUR TEST OF STRENGTH

In Defenders (1973) #10, Doctor Strange guides Hulk to Los Angeles where he finds the missing part of the Evil Eye. At that time, Thor also arrives looking for the Evil Eye. When the God of Thunder asks to speak to the Jade Giant, Hulk is dismissive. Violently, a brawl follows between the warriors. During the battle, their power is so fierce that the city is threatened. Incredibly, both combatants lock arms for one hour in a test of strength. Finally, Doctor Strange, the Defenders and Avengers arrive to separate them. In the end, the heroes realize that a greater force, namely Dormammu, is involved in the events.

9. IT TOOK HULK AND NAMOR TO FIGHT CLASSIC THOR

In Avengers (1964) #3, Hulk and Namor team-up against the Avengers. When the Avengers decide to find the Hulk, they contact Rick Jones. With his help, they locate him in the desert. After a battle, he escapes and teams-up with Sub-Mariner. At the Rock of Gibraltar, the final battle occurs. During the fight, Namor and Hulk can barely hold on to the mighty Thor. In the end, the enemies flee with the Avengers victorious.

8. IN MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, THOR HAS MATCHED HULK WITHOUT HIS HAMMER

In Marvel’s The Avengers (2012), Nick Fury activates the Avengers Initiative to recruit exceptional people into the peace-keeping team called the Avengers. With the Tesseract, Loki signals a Chitauri invasion in New York City. Before the invasion, Thor battles Hulk on the Helicarrier, matching the behemoth without his hammer! In Thor (1987) #385, Thor must stop Hulk’s rampage in a forest near the Mississippi River. When Hulk holds a woman hostage, Thor is forced to fight without his hammer. Though at a disadvantage, he holds his own.

7. HULK HAS LIFTED THOR’S HAMMER

In Hulk: Let The Battle Begin (2010) #1, Bruce Banner awakens in the middle of the desert. There, he find a ride from a man driving a truck who drops him off to a nearby town. In between naps, Bruce has been having trouble with his memories. In his naps, he recalls the events of the previous day. Near Mount Rushmore, he recalls lifting Thor’s hammer and bludgeoning the Odinson with it till he is knocked out. Really, an impressive feat!

When Hulk is about to land the killing blow, he sees the light of Odinsleep and heads for the palace. Believing himself dead, Thor sees a shadow thinking it is Hela, but it is Amora.

IN REDEMPTION

THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN SHOWED US HOW A MARVEL VILLAIN CAN BECOME A HERO

When we think of Spider-Man’s nemesis, we think of Green Goblin, Venom or Mysterio. Perhaps, we could argue that Doc Ock is actually his nemesis. In fact, he once dated Aunt May, formed the Sinister Six and regularly threated Spider-Man’s personal life.

During the Marvel Now! (2012), the Marvel Universe changed after AvX. Now, Marvel decide to redeem Doc Ock who had been suffering regular defeats from Spider-Man. With The Superior Spider-Man, Doc Ock became a hero. Let’s show why Marvel Now! showed us how to successfully redeem a Marvel villain.

The Superior Spider-Man (2012) #1. Marvel Comics.

PHASE 1: HONOR THE WISH OF THE DEAD AND BE A HERO

Finally, Doc Ock triumphs over his mortal enemy. In Avenging Spider-Man #15.1, Otto Octavius wakes up in Peter’s apartment. Gleefully, he revels over his victory over Spider-Man. When Otto Octavius was near him, Peter Parker visited him. Using brain-switching technology, Doc Ock switched minds with Peter Parker.

Now, Otto in Spider-Man’s body fought Peter Parker in Doc Ock’s body. However, Spider-Man succumbed to the injuries and died. But, now in Spider-Man’s body, Otto realized that he should embrace Spider-Man’s motto: “With great power, comes great responsibility.” Thus, he became a hero and became The Superior Spider-Man.

PHASE 2: THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN LIVES TO SPIDER-MAN’S POTENTIAL

Originally, the premise of the series was for Doc Ock to show how Spider-Man’s amazing powers and intellect, can fulfill the hero’s potential. Indeed, Otto realized he could apply his mind to improve Spider-Man’s superheroing and personal life.

For instance, Doc Ock enrolled at Empire State University to help Peter complete his doctorate. In addition, he set up a base where Spider-Man could locate danger and invent new tech. Also, Doc Ock created The Superior Spider-Man suit and eventually set up Parker Industries.

PHASE 3: SHOW THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN IS THE TRUE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN

Though the Superior Spider-Man proved to be more organized and tactical, he struggled with heroism. When Doc Ock gained Spider-Man’s body, Spider-Man’s consciousness survived. In fact, it meant to prevent Otto from committing serious crimes and even murder.

Soon, Spider-Man’s entourage and the public noticed the hero’s more violent methods. At the same time, the Superior Spider-Man garnered the ire of Spider-Man’s enemies. During Spider-Verse, it was certain that Doc Ock could not live up to the name of the Superior Spider-Man.

PHASE 4: DOC OCK REDEEMS HIMSELF BY SACRIFICING HIS LIFE

Previously, Otto used a neurolitic scanner to remove Peter Parker’s consciousness from his brain. Later, Spider-Man’s consciousness comes back. When the Goblin King attacks Superior Spider-Man with the Spider Slayers. However, Doc Ock searched for his love, Anna Maria Marcona, whom Goblin King took hostage.

When Otto was faced with saving a girl in the subway, Peter’s consciousness came back and drove him to save her. Then, he realized Peter was the Superior Spider-Man. Finally, returning to his lab Doc Ock used the neurolitic scanner to erase his consciousness. In the end, Peter Parker’s consciousness took control of Spider-Man’s body to save Maria.

WHO ARE THE CELESTIALS?

Originally, the Celestials are a race of extra-dimensional gods. Importantly, they created the Prime Marvel Universe.

However, some misconceptions continue about these nigh-omnipotent beings. Let’s list five myths about the Celestials in comics, TV and movies.

COMICS, FILM AND TV: MYTH #5. THE CELESTIALS HAVE PHYSICAL BODIES

In the Eternals and Guardians of the Galaxy, the Celestials are gigantic space humanoids. In an interview, ScreenRant reveals the Celestials are 200 miles tall. Indeed, this confirms their actual size in the comics. Though, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and What If…? show that Ego can take the form of a planet and a human-sized form.

However, the Celestials’ physical bodies are actually physical constructs. In the comics, it is revealed that the Celestials’ physical bodies are constructs from extra-dimensional hyper space. In fact,  What If? Newer Fantastic Four (2008) #1, reveals the Celestials’ bodies are moved by willpower or thought.

TV AND FILM: MYTH #4. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE SIX INFINITY STONES

Perhaps, the most correct myth. In a What If…? episode, Ultron used the Infinity Stones in order to kill Ego the Living Planet. From Avengers: Infinity War, Loki learnt from the Quarry of the Gods that the Celestials created the Six Infinity Stones.

In reality, the Celestials created the Six Singularities before the birth of the Marvel universe. From the Six Singularities, the Six Infinity Stones of infinite power were born. In Guardians of the Galaxy, Eson the Searcher uses the Space Stone to destroy a planet.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #3. THE CELESTIALS ONLY CREATED THE ETERNALS AND THE DEVIANTS

From the Eternals movie, it appears the Celestials only created two races on Earth: the Deviants and the Eternals. In reality, as space Gods, the Celestials created and evolved multiple races throughout the universe.

In the comics, the Celestials are responsible for genetic experiments on homo superior, the mutant race on Marvel Earth. As matter of fact, part of the reason why they are viewed as villains is because they created the X-Men villain named Apocalypse. More on why, the Celestials may or may not be villains.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #2. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

Really, this myth is both correct and incorrect. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials created the Big Bang with the Six Singularities. In fact, the Marvel universe is an endless cycle of rebirth and destruction. However, the Celestials have created only one universe in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In Marvel comics, the Celestials have created the Marvel multiverse. Indeed, they shaped the early cosmos allowing for the multiverse to be created. Though, Secret Wars shows that the Beyonders may have created the Marvel multiverse. In fact, we argue Pre-Retcon Beyonder as Marvel’s God.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #1. THE CELESTIALS ARE VILLAINS

In both Marvel comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials appear as cosmic villains. Though this is correct in the Eternals movie, this myth needs explanation. In reality, the Celestials are both creators and destroyers. Since they created the universe or multiverse, they function according to the laws of evolution.

In the comics, Living Tribunal who is the Cosmic Judge, is responsible for creating and destroying universes to maintain balance. Similarly, the Celestials obey the cycles of creation and destruction of the universe. In effect, they are Gods or Abstracts in the Power Hierarchy. In Thor vs Celestial, we show Exitar the Celestial when he judges the planet Pangoria.

WHO ARE THE SINISTER SIX?

Originally, the Sinister Six were banded together by Doctor Octopus. After suffering three defeats in a row from Spider-Man, Dr. Octavius understood the need to band with other criminals. Thus, he contacted all known Spider-Man rogues. With the knowledge their group would be only for a short duration.

Only five responded. Together, Dr. Octopus, Electro, Vulture, Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman would become the Sinister Six. Also, the group has been known as the Savage Six, the Sinister Seven and the Sinister Twelve. Let’s list 10 horrible things the villain team has done in comics and television to ruin Spider-Man’s life.

The Sinister Six.
The Sinister Six. Marvel Comics.

 

COMICS: KIDNAP AUNT MAY AND BETTY BRANT

First, when they formed Doctor Octopus planned to use people important to Spider-Man as bait. Though unaware, they kidnapped Aunt May who was a bystander. In addition, they realized Betty Brant was important. So they kidnapped her. Second, the Sinister Six set up a gauntlet.

Indeed, Spider-Man had to fight each member individually in order to save the loved ones. But this was a bad time since Spider-Man had lost his powers at the time. In fact, it turned out to be a psychological block over Uncle Ben’s death. Which he overcame in life or death situations.

TV: THE SIX BEAT UP SPIDER-MAN SO BAD THAT THE BLACK SYMBIOTE SUIT TOOK OVER HIM AT NIGHT

In Spectacular Spider-Man, the Sinister Six form for the first time in Season 1: Episode 11. After Electro breaks them out of prison, the Six attack Spider-Man’s family. No match against Doc Ock, Vulture, Shocker, Electro, Sandman and Rhino, Spider-Man retreats.

At night, Spider-Man actually wishes that his enemies end up behind bars. Previously, Spider-Man has been using the black costume. At night, the black symbiote takes over him and goes to fight the Sinister Six. The next day, Peter finds out Spider-Man captured them but cannot remember.

COMICS: DOC OCK AND THE SIX TRIED TO CONQUER THE WORLD THROUGH COCAINE ADDICTION

After the Sinister Six were freed from prison, Doc Ock brought them together. Again, he sought revenge against Spider-Man. Apparently, Kraven committed suicide so Hobgoblin took his place.

However, Doc Ock’s real plan was to conquer the world by dealing cocaine. Fortunately, Sandman had reformed. With his help, Spider-Man defeated the Sinister Six.

TV: THE SIX ATTACK AT CHRISTMAS AND KRAVEN BETRAYS MYSTERIO

To prove that the Sinister Six really were out to get their foe, they attacked when he least expected them. At Christmas, Mysterio, Kraven, Sandman, Vulture, Doc Ock and Electro attack Spider-Man. When the battle turns into Spider-Man’s favor, Kraven betrays Mysterio.

In fact, he tells Spider-Man it is a robot duplicate. Soon, Spider-Man defeats the rogues. In the end, Spider-Man saves the nearby Santa Claus and Elf. Though the identity of “Master Planner”, who is Doc Ock, remains a mystery to him.

COMICS: IN A BID TO CONQUER THE WORLD, THE SIX GAVE SPIDER-MAN ARM AND LEG FRACTURES

In their newest scheme, Doc Ock and his criminals planned to steal alien weaponry. When his family was threatened, the reformed Sandman recruited Spider-Man’s help.

However, the Sinister Six went on a killing spree, murdering wantonly. And Spider-Man was injured with fractures of arm and leg. In addition, it took members of the superhero community in order to finally take them down.

TV: THE INSIDIOUS SIX ATTACKED WHEN SPIDER-MAN WAS SUFFERING FROM A MUTATION DISEASE THAT CAUSED POWER LOSS

Similarly to Earth-616, Spider-Man: The Animated Series created the Insidious Six. Here, they were assembled by the Kingpin in order to destroy Spider-Man. Similarly, Spider-Man was suffering from a mutation disease that caused his power loss.

When they battled Spider-Man, they quickly overpowered him. In addition, they unmasked him. Not impressed by his performance, they concluded Peter Parker could not be Spider-Man. Later, Spider-Man would defeat them after regaining his powers.

EternityInGaming

COMICS: NORMAN OSBORN FORMED THE SINISTER TWELVE

Years later, Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin, was defeated by Spider-Man. Before he headed to prison, he activated a contingency plan. Contacting Spider-Man’s rogues, he put together the Sinister Twelve. Together, Scorpion led Vulture, Sandman, Electro, Chameleon, Lizard, Hydroman, Shocker, Hammerhead, Boomerang, Tombstone.

When Scorpion captured and threatened Aunt May, Spider-Man and Black Cat were blackmailed in breaking Green Goblin out of prison. Though the two made a heroic stand, they were no match for the Sinister Twelve. With the help of Captain America, Iron Man, Daredevil, Hank Pym and the FF they defeated the supervillain team.

TV: DEFEATING SPIDER-MAN, CHAMELEON BETRAYED THE SINISTER SIX AND FREED RED SKULL

In his latest scheme, Kingpin gathered the Sinister Six. Their mission was to retrieve the keys of the Six American Warriors. With the keys, he planned to activate the Doomsday Device. And they were successful in defeating Spider-Man and retrieving the keys.

Though Chameleon betrayed them. Dangerously, he knocked them out with a sleeping gas and freed Kingpin from a vortex, along with Captain America. In the end, the complex collapsed and the Sinister Six disbanded.

VIDEO GAME: IN A CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS, SPIDER-MAN BATTLED THE SINISTER SIX

In Marvel Contest of Champions, the Sinister Six are assembled by Grandmaster. In reality, it is a contest between Grandmaster’s champions and the Collector’s champions.

WHO IS SPIDER-MAN 2099?

In Spider-Man 2099 (1992) #1, we learn Spider-Man‘s origin story. Originally, Miguel O’hara was a scientist for Alchemax. In fact, he worked for the Corporate Raider Program. Importantly, their objective was to alter the genetic code in order to grant humans superhuman abilities. After a failed unethical test on a convict to grant him Spider-Man’s powers, Miguel resigns. Before he departs, his boss Tyler Stone drops Rapture into his drink. It is a legal hallucinogenic that alters human DNA.

In crisis and an addict, Miguel decides to use the Corporate Raider Program. And he plans to use his DNA implanted on test subjects in order to revert his genetic code. But his rival Aaron Delgato is watching unbeknownst to him. Accidentally, he sets the controls to merge Miguel’s DNA with a spider. Incredibly, the scientist survives though he appears as a dazed, clawed and fanged creature. Soon, Miguel uses a Day of the Dead attire to fashion a Spider-Man. Previously, he is introduced fighting the Corporate Raider Program.

THE SPIDER-MAN 2099’S SUIT

DURABILITY

To begin, the suit was created from the Unstable Molecule. On Earth-616, this synthetic material was discovered by Reed Richards. In fact, it was used to create fabric that could adapt to a certain environment. Indeed, it can mimic its wearer’s physical super powers. For example, it can mimic Invisible Woman‘s invisibility and turn invisible. On Earth-928, Miguel can use his claws without ripping the costume.

WEB CAPE

Perhaps, the suit’s most incredible feature. At first, Miguel acquired a torn piece of glider cloth from a Thor worshipper. Later, he attached it to his costume as a cape-like cloth. In fact, the web cape is very useful since it grants Spider-Man 2099 the ability to glide over rooftops.

IN INVENTIONS AND SCIENTIFIC MARVELS

ETERNITY DUBS HANK PYM “EARTH’S SCIENTIST SUPREME”1

In Mighty Avengers (2009) #30, Hank Pym discovers Overspace. Previously, Mister Fantastic discovered the dimension. Now, Hank uses the Pym Particles. In an instant, he increases his size past the Macroverse. Then, he reaches a boundless space beyond space and time. There, the cosmic entity called Eternity greets him. After a brief scuffle, Eternity has a talk with Hank. Indeed, Eternity thanks Hank for curing him of his astral cancer.

But Hank questions why Eternity did not call Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme. Importantly, Eternity names Hank, “Earth’s Scientist Supreme.”1 Indeed, among Earth’s super geniuses, Hank Pym is the Mage. In fact, Eternity acknowledges Mister Fantastic as the Explorer is smarter. And Tony Stark as the Engineer uses science to shape the world. But Ant-Man does the impossible, taking science to the point of magic. Now, Hank is his champion to whom he entrusts the future.

HANK PYM’S INVENTIONS AND DISCOVERIES

PYM PARTICLES

Perhaps, Ant-Man’s most well-known invention. Originally, Hank Pym discovered the Pym Particles. Early on, he synthesized a serum that shrinks matter in mass and size. First, he tested it on a chair which shrank. Then, he tested it on himself which shrank him to ant-size. Eventually, he was able to use the Pym Particles to increase his mass and size. Importantly, the Pym Particles allowed the user to bypass the Square-Cube law of physics.

ULTRON

Definitely, Hank Pym’s failure. Once a promising scientist, Hank’s inventions started to fail. When he invented Ultron, it was a breakthrough of Artificial Intelligence. However, Ultron grew to sentience, hypnotized Hank and made him forget. Soon, Ultron evolved and improved his design. Later, he would form the Masters of Evil and combat the Avengers. Also, Ultron would create Vision. Visit our Avengers: Rage of Ultron review and learn about Vision vs Ultron.

CYBERNETIC HELMET

Indeed, you may have seen in the Ant-Man movie, his trademark invention, the Cybernetic Helmet. With it, the superhero telepathically controls hordes of ants and even flying insects. Really, one of his most ingenious inventions proving he is a man of magic.

MACROVERSE AND MICROVERSE

With the Pym Particles, Hank Pym can absorb subatomic particles from the Kosmos dimension. Effectively, he shunts extra-dimensional matter into the Prime Universe. Moreover, his enlarging and shrinking super powers allowed him to discover the Macroverse and the Microverse.

DOCTOR DOOM MAKES VICTORIOUS THE HERALD OF DOOM TO LURE GALACTUS

Previously, in Fantastic Four (2018) #1, we learn the origin story of Victorious.

Courageously, Zora Lukovic inspired Doctor Doom to end his self-exile and reclaim Latveria.

To recompense, Doctor Doom imbued her with the Power Cosmic. Then, Victorious was born.

In reality, Doom’s plan was to lure Galactus to Earth.

In Fantastic Four (2019) #6, Galactus heads straight to Latveria to consume Earth.

During the invasion, Doom’s massive hologram warns Earth of Galactus’ arrival.

Then, he warns that only Doom would deal with the threat. When the FF intercept the broadcast, they head for Latveria.

5 MYTHS ABOUT BEN REILLY IN THE ‘CLONE SAGA’

5. SPIDER-MAN KILLED BEN REILLY

In Amazing Spider-Man (1975) #149, Spider-Man learns about the existence of his clone. During the issue, the Jackal reveals his identity as Peter Parker’s biology professor. Namely, Miles Warren was secretly in love with Gwen Stacy. When Gwen died, he blamed Spider-Man and plotted revenge. After an unethical experiment, Warren realized Serba wanted to clone a human Gwen

In madness, he killed Serba and became the Jackal. Later, he clones Gwen as well as Peter Parker. In the issue, Spider-Man and his clone fight for the last one standing. However, Warren seemingly kills the Spider-Man clone when he fails to stop his bomb. Fortunately, Spider-Man escapes. In the end, Spider-Man buries the body in an industrial chimney. In reality, Ben Reilly was alive and survived thanks to a chemical the Jackal previously injected in him.

4. BEN REILLY IS A CRIMINAL

Later, after Ben Reilly assumes a costumed identity, he becomes the Jackal. Previously, Ben Reilly found illegal employment. Thanks to a scientist he met a scientist named Seward Trainer, he obtained fake paperwork. However, his illegal work was inconsistent.

After a month of work, his employers usually found out about his fake work history, and Ben had to move. In addition, Ben even worked in Italy as an English teacher. However, he had to leave after the local Mafia found out about his fake credentials. Though he was illegal, Ben was not a criminal supervillain.

3. BEN REILLY IS THE TRUE PETER PARKER

In Web of Spider-Man (1994) #117, Ben Reilly returned to New York. After an initial mistrust, both Peter Parker and his clone got along. However, Peter was stunned when Seward Trainer revealed Ben Reilly was the true Peter Parker and Peter Parker was the clone. Fortunately, each hero agreed to keep their civilian identities. When Mary Jane became pregnant, Peter moved with her out of New York.

For a while, Ben Reilly would have adventures and lead a normal life. Finally, Trainer was revealed to be an agent of Norman Osborn who survived apparent death after The Night Gwen Stacy Died. In fact, he was the mastermind behind the clone saga. In the end, Ben disintegrated after Green Goblin’s glider pierced him, proving he was the clone.

2. BEN REILLY NEVER BECAME SPIDER-MAN

When Peter and Mary Jane moved out of New York, Ben initially took on the costume of the Scarlet Spider. Later, feeling guilty over Uncle Ben’s death, he became Spider-Man.

Later, Spider-Man wold have adventures with the Human Torch and the X-Men. In addition, he would fight Mysterio and help defeat Green Goblin in his last battle before his death. However, he would return.

1. SPIDER-MAN IS STRONGER THAN BEN REILLY

In many respects, Ben Reilley proved a capable Spider-Man.

During DC Versus Marvel, he proved capable of defeating the stronger Superboy.

AT THE END OF FALL OF THE MUTANTS, X-FACTOR REVEALED THEIR IDENTITIES

From the beginning, it was a tale about mutant struggle. What other trailblazers had accomplished before, had prepare for this moment.

In front of cameras, pens and interrogators, Scott passionately made his public announcement. Yes, having saved New York from the cataclysmic ambitions of Apocalypse and the bigotry of Cameron Hodge's The Right, it was time to come out.

Jubilantly, the media had celebrated them as heroes. Gloriously, X-Factor had stopped the mutant god from unleashing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on the beloved city.

Now, it was time for the truth. For some time, Warren Worthington III alias Angel had used his fortune in order to recruit Beast, Cyclops, Marvel Girl and Iceman to set up X-Factor. 

In fact, X-Factor had operated outside the law as the X-Terminators.

Today, Cyclops revealed both team were one and the same thing. From that day on, X-Factor would reveal the aliases of its members to support the Mutant Registration Act.

Indeed, it was the Fall of the Mutants. But which mutants? More importantly, would humanity finally come to tolerate mutant difference granting them their civil rights?

Only future adventures would tell.
