IN POWER LEVEL EXPLAINED

The Beyonder may be the most mysterious entity in the Marvel cosmic hierarchy. Is he a god? A cosmic being? A Cosmic Cube? Let’s look at the reasons why Beyonder may be the closest version to Marvel’s God!

“I AM FROM BEYOND”

When ‘Secret Wars’ (1984) exploded into the pages of Marvel comics, it was the first crossover event in Marvel continuity. From the first pages, the Beyonder claimed to be “from beyond.”1 He made a tempting proposition to the heroes and villains.

In 'Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars' (1984) #1, Beyonder introduces himself to the heroes and villains in majestic fashion.

In casual fashion, the Beyonder then went on to destroy a galaxy and rebuff Galactus and Doctor Doom. He created Battleworld out of the remains of nearby planets where heroes and villains would battle in order to win their hearts’ desires. Who is this Beyonder?

In reality, the Beyonder stems from the Beyond-Realm.

Read on!

The Beyond Realm was originally a being known as the Beyonder it was an infinite realm beyond the Marvel Multiverse (or Omniverse), and was the sum of everything outside the multiverse and that the Marvel Multiverse (or Omniverse) was a drop in the sea compared to the Beyond-realm. Making it infinitely bigger than the known Marvel Multiverse (Or Omniverse) at this time it is believed Here, that the Beyonder (Originally) is/was the all-powerful God, Creator, Ruler, and Inhabitant. He is everything and everyone in this realm as everything is him. His mere thought became reality anything he dreamed of was his and his alone with him in this Plane of Existence it would be utterly nothing.

WHY PRE-RETCON BEYONDER IS MARVEL’S GOD

HIS POWER IS IMAGINATION

In ‘Secret Wars’ (1985) II, Beyonder arrives on Earth. His purpose is to investigate the human feeling of desire. He is met with incomprehension and conflict follows with Earth’s heroes and villains. In one issue, Beyonder contemplates destroying the Marvel universe and everything in it. As he thinks, his thoughts cause universal disturbances. This shows Beyonder’s power is imagination.

PRE-RETCON BEYONDER SEEKS HOMAGE

In 'Secret Wars II' (1985), the Beyond controls animate life and inanimate objects to pay him homage.

In ‘Secret Wars II’ (1985), Beyonder extends his control to inanimate and animate life. Controlling every molecule and atom on Earth, Beyonder wants all things to pay him homage. How divine is that?

PRE-RETCON BEYONDER CAN DESTROY THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

In 'Secret Wars II' (1985), Beyonder kills Death.

In ‘Secret Wars II’ (1985), Beyonder shows an impressive display of power. In front of the Magistrati, he gives Death a potion that kills her. An impressive feat since Death constitutes the semi-covered face of Living Tribunal and represents Vengeance. Furthermore, none of the Magistrati intervene to prevent this death, fearing Beyonder’s power. Finally, Death herself is a Multiversal entity.

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.

RESPECT DOCTOR DOOM!

DESTINED TO RULE THE WORLD

In “Doomwar”, Doctor Doom manages to steal the Vibranium from T’Challa’s Vibranium Vault. Before he can claim what his heart truly seeks, Doctor Doom must pass a test. He must prove to the god Bast that he is truly pure of heart. Uncannily, Doctor Doom does pass the test.

Doctor Doom opens his soul and shows Bast he has faith. With his sorcery, he has peered into millions of possible futures and has seen that the only future where humanity is at peace, is Doomworld. Perhaps, Doctor Doom is pure evil.

 

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #3, Doctor Doom tells Bast he has gazed into a hundred thousand futures, and the only one where humanity survives is with Doctor Doom as its ruler.

SORCERER SUPREME CONTENDER

Few beings on Marvel Earth are equally adept at science and magic. Using sorcery and tech, Doctor Doom lives in both world. A super-genius, Doctor Doom once contended for the title of Sorcerer Supreme against Doctor Strange.

In ‘Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph & Torment’, Genghis tests the most powerful sorcerers on Earth for the title of Sorcerer Supreme. In the trial, it comes down to a final showdown between Doom and Strange. Ultimately, Doctor Doom fails the trial and only for Doctor Strange to use his astral form free Genghis’ spirit from his crystal and to be declared Sorcerer Supreme.

In "Doctor Strange And Doctor Doom: Triumph And Torment", Doctor Strange and Doctor Doom contend for the title of Sorcerer Supreme.

SUPREME BEING OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom stole Galactus’ and Taa II’s power in order to battle Beyonder. In the Beyonder’s Realm, it was a hopeless battle. Finally, Doctor Doom was defeated.

Miraculously, in a contest of willlpower, Doom resisted the Beyonder’s dissection, overpowered him, and stole his power. For a short while, Doctor Doom became the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe.

Feat: Doctor Doom, ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ #10

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.

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

Calculations for Doctor Doom, ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ #10

“In the case of a universe that is approximately uniform in space, one can show that this negative gravitational energy exactly cancels the positive energy represented by the matter. So the total energy of the universe is zero.” https://www.livescience.com/33129-total-energy-universe-zero.html#:~:text=In%20the%20case%20of%20a,of%20the%20universe%20is%20zero.%22

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (1989) #31, the Living Tribunal explains to Silver Surfer and the Stranger about his three faces: his three faces must agree in order for him to make a judgment – The semi-covered face is Vengeance and represents Death, the fully covered face is Necessity and represents Eternity, and the face is Equity and represents Galactus.

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.

GALACTUS EMPLOYS HIGHLY ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR TRANSPORT, MATTER AND ENERGY MANIPULATION

Galactus employs highly advanced technology stored on Taa II. He uses it for transport, matter and energy manipulation.

In ‘Fantastic Four (1966) #50, the Human Torch retrieves the Ultimate Nullifies from Taa II. Mister Fantastic must use the Ultimate Nullifier to stop Galactus from consuming the Earth. Uatu the Watcher warns Mister Fantastic not to turn the level to full power, or else it could destroy the solar system in a microsecond.

Mister Fantastic must use it as specified by the Watcher.

OUTCOME: FANTASTIC FOUR WIN

IN ‘DARKSEID/GALACTUS: THE HUNGER’, GALACTUS USES THE SPHERE-SHAPED STARSHIP IN ORDER TO CONSUME APOKOLIPS

In 'Darkseid/Galactus: The Hunger' (1995), Galactus uses the sphere-shaped starship in order to invade Apokolips before the bewildered glances of its denizens.

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.

OUTCOME: DARKSEID WINS

In ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ (1984) #251, Spider-Man is transported to Battleworld.

In a battle with Hobgoblin, Spider-Man and Hobgoblin are trapped in a building on fire. Hobgoblin awakens first and attempts to finish off Spider-Man who evades the attack. As the whole structure is about to collapse, Hobgoblin evades pursuit in his battle van. Spider-Man is in hot pursuit.

Writhing in pain and agony, Spider-Man evades certain death when Hobgoblin crashes through a bar. Spider-Man finally crushes open the top of the battle van and enters. A man-to-man confrontation ensues where Spider-Man is at a disadvantage since Hobgoblin previously suppressed Spider-Man’s spider-sense. As Hobgoblin is about to land in the final blow, Spider-Man’s spider sense returns. Spider-Man evades the attack.

Hobgoblin set the battle van on auto-guidance system and it is headed for Pier 83. The battle van crashes into the Hudson River with Spider-Man and Hobgoblin locked in battle. As Spider-Man attempts to save Hobgoblin, the battle van’s self-destruct mechanism engages and the battle van explodes later. Swimming to the surface, Spider-Man borrows a lamp from a frogman and plunges back into the waters. He searches for Hobgoblin amidst the debris and only finds “a ruined mask.”1

A day later, Peter Parker parts with Harry Osborn after consoling him for his father’s death. Suddenly, his spider-sense goes wild, “like a bomb exploding within [his] head.”1 Spider-Man says it’s the third monster tingle he has experienced in the last three days and he puts on his costume.

He states the danger is coming from Central Park. Web-swinging across trees, he arrives at Sheep Meadow. He finds a massive alien structure. Moved by a superior force, he enters the alien structure and vanishes.
