X-Men (1965) #12, titled “The Origin Of Professor X!”, marks the first appearance of Juggernaut in Marvel continuity. Marvel Comics.
Generally, Hulk has been described as the strongest Marvel hero. At the same time, he may also be the most durable.
Particularly, Hulk’s gamma ray physiology grants him several super powers such as nigh-invulnerability, resistance to injury, superhuman stamina, superhuman durability, a regenerative healing factor and self-regeneration manipulation.
Though other media have been unable to fully do justice to Hulk’s unlimited strength and durability. At the same time, in the comics, the Green Behemoth has displayed tremendous durability and regeneration.
In multiple instances, the Jade Giant has survived nuclear explosions and gamma bombs, even at ground zero.
WHAT ARE GAMMA RAYS?
In Tales To Astonish (1964) #62, Hulk survives a gamma bomb at ground zero. Let’s give additional information about gamma bombs and gamma ray bursts.
Gamma-rays have the smallest wavelengths and the most energy of any other wave in the electromagnetic spectrum. These waves are generated by radioactive atoms and in nuclear explosions. Gamma-rays can kill living cells, a fact which medicine uses to its advantage, using gamma-rays to kill cancerous cells.
Gamma-rays are the most energetic form of light and are produced by the hottest regions of the universe. They are also produced by such violent events as supernova explosions or the destruction of atoms, and by less dramatic events, such as the decay of radioactive material in space.
Things like supernova explosions (the way massive stars die), neutron stars and pulsars, and black holes are all sources of celestial gamma-rays.
At least once a day, the sky lights up with a spectacular flash of gamma-rays coming from deep space. The brightness of this flash of gamma-rays can temporarily overwhelm all other gamma-ray sources in the universe. The burst can last from a fraction of a second to over a thousand seconds.
The time that the burst occurs and the direction from which it will come cannot be predicted. Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) can release more energy in 10 seconds than the Sun will emit in its entire 10 billion-year lifetime!
In ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ Batman performs a super strength feat. During the battle, Batman kicks Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air and making the monster susceptible to sleeping gas. AP Photo/DC Comics.
First, Hulk’s gamma radiation physiology grants him an extremely tough and durable skin. Thanks to his physiology, the transformation into Hulk adds 800 pounds of bone marrow and muscle tissue to Hulk’s body.
Usually, for a male, the normal body fat percentage is between 2% and 24%. Above, is obesity. In Hulk’s case, his body likely does not have any body fat, or perhaps, a negligible range.
Because of his hundreds of pounds of muscle, Hulk’s strength is definitely superhuman. In comparison, an athlete or bodybuilder can gain four to seven pounds of muscle on average in a year.
Furthermore, strongmen who can bench press up to 900 pounds can weigh up to 400 pounds.
In addition, Hulk has hundreds of pounds of bone marrow. As we know, the bone marrow produces stem cells which differentiate into red blood cells and white blood cells.
For this reason, Hulk likely has a high resistance to toxins and diseases due to having more circulation and a more capable immune system.
Soon, a battle follows between Hulk and the New X-Men. During the fight, X-23 claws out Hulk’s eyes. Eventually, however, Hulk trounces them. At the end of the fight, Hulk’s eyes have regenerated. How is that possible?
On a regular occasion, x-rays are used in order to treat cancer cells. Certainly, we know cancer cells have the ability to divide for an unlimited amount of time. In fact, they have been termed immortal since they do not undergo cell-programmed apoptosis.
In Hulk’s case, his cells have been mutated by gamma radiation. Also, a remarkable super power the Green Behemoth possesses is the ability to regenerate cells, organs and limbs.
There is little question, that Hulk’s cells are not cancerous, rather, the gamma rays make them radioactive.
As we know, gamma rays are higher in energy than x-rays. At the same time, it is possible that they allow Hulk’s radioactive cells the ability to replicate when destroyed. Likely, the gamma rays allow stem cells to regenerate from damaged cells or destroyed tissue.
In effect, this is a beneficial mutation that creates immortal cells in Hulk.
1. THE MADDER HE GETS, THE STRONGER HE GETS, THE TOUGHER HE GETS
During the World War Hulk event, Hulk emerges amped out of the Cathexis Ray Generator. In one of his most popular feats, the superhero creates earthquakes on the Eastern seaboard with his steps.
Generally, the popular phrase about Hulk is true: the madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. Also, it is true that his durability also increases with his strength. Together, strength and durability depend on Hulk’s adrenaline levels in the blood.
Potentially, Hulk’s durability is limitless since his rage has been described to be limitless.
For these reasons, Hulk is a tough enemy to put down. In effect, he is invincible since he becomes as strong as his rage allows. Therefore, the only way to defeat the Hulk is to take away his rage.
Generally, our formidability takes into account a character’s quality of opponents. Using this hierarchy, we can formulate a Power Hierarchy. Namely, it is the following:
Peak Human, Assassin, Metahuman, Criminal Mastermind/Team-Wrecker, Warrior, Hi-Tech Genius/Enhanced, Political Leader, Demon or Monster/Supernatural Being, Champion, Cosmic Being, Skyfather, God or Abstract.
Before we rank the Top 10, let’s list some rules.
First, only beings below God or Abstract are included. God or Abstract include Galactus, Eternity, Living Tribunal, Beyonder, One-Above-All.
Since we focus on feats, we will go by inventions or planning only.
Different races in the Marvel Universe are included such as the Eternals, humans, Inhumans.
Let’s rank our Top 10.
10. PROFESSOR XAVIER
Professor X. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Metahuman 17%
What seems like a benign invention has actually changed the course of Marvel history. Namely, Professor X’s Cerebro is actually an E.S.P. device that helps him locate good and bad mutants.
Generally, though telepathy is a super power in the Marvel Universe, we can count it as super-genius intelligence. For the reason that being granted access to the secret thoughts and desires of men is definitely a god-like ability or super power.
Furthermore, Professor X has the intelligence to show for it. As matter of fact, an expert in genetics and the life sciences, the Professor X has shown remarkable scientific ingenuity s well as planning in combat situations.
Definitely, I would not want to mess with someone who once defeated Phoenix in a psionic battle!
9. BLACK BOLT
Black Bolt. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%
Though not really an inventor, Black Bolt is nonetheless one of the most capable scientists on Marvel Earth. During Infinity, Black Bolt invented the T-bomb.
When detonated, the bomb would cause all humans to undergo Terrigenesis and become Inhumans. Definitely, a nightmarish thought!
8. BLACK PANTHER
Black Panther. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Metahuman 17%
As matter of fact, Black Panther is really a super-genius. Early, T’Challa earned a PhD in physics from Oxford University. Generally, Black Panther is a master tactician, problem solver and inventor.
During the Doomwar, T’Challa revealed he combined his knowledge of physics with alchemy in order to create new scientific discipline: shadow physics.
Now let’s move onto an actual scalable feat. During the Incursion in Secret Wars, Black Panther actually helped design the life raft. Moreover, he also designed an inter-dimensional planet-busting bomb!
Generally speaking, T’Challa is rated among the eight smartest minds on Earth. And he deserves it!
Beast. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Metahuman 17%
In his Top 25 Smartest list, Victor Grubbs at CBR.com calls Beast a Renaissance man. What makes Hank McCoy stand out is that despite his blue monster appearance, he is very intellectually gifted, a man of culture and letters.
From the beginning, Beast was a founding member of the original X-Men. Furthermore, he would join the Avengers, X-Factor and even the Secret Avengers during Civil War.
In the intelligence department, Beast is among the eight smartest people on Marvel Earth. Namely, his expertises in medicine, anatomy, biophysics, electronics, biochemistry and genetics are at the top.
Among his most remarkable feats is his discovery of the hormonal extract that causes the X-gene. In addition, Hank discovered a cure to the Legacy Virus that devastated the mutant population.
Without a doubt, Hank Pym is a revolutionary mind in the Marvel Universe. Really, there was hesitation as who has been the more inventive mind between Ant-Man and Iron Man. Later, we will see why Iron Man deserves the higher spot.
Among the most inventive minds on Earth, Hank Pym has been called by the Abstract named Eternity, “Earth’s Scientist Supreme.”1 Really, his discoveries have been ground-breaking.
Thanks to the Pym Particles, he discovered the Microverse by shrinking to subatomic scale and the Macroverse by increasing his size near infinity.
Though he is a super-genius, his attitude and his most important malfunctioning inventions – namely, Ultron – have prevented him from succeeding. Often times, he has been considered a failure. Read our Avengers: Rage of Ultron product review.
5. IRON MAN
Iron Man. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Enhanced 50%
For the most part, Tony Stark is a businessman, a public figure and an inventor in the Marvel Universe. Importantly, he is well known for his Iron Man armors which have continually evolved over the years in response to threats and personal challenges.
Two reasons why Iron Man has succeeded where Hank Pym has not: his inventions have successfully revolutionized business and he has recovered from addiction.
At the same time, Iron Man performed a feat that has outclassed Hank. In AvX, Tony invents the Phoenix Killer Armor which temporarily bombs the Phoenix, though splitting it in the Phoenix Five.
4. BRUCE BANNER
Dr. Bruce Banner. Marvel Comics
Power Hierarchy: Cosmic Being 83%
Generally, BannerTech is developed in order to solve a problem. Regularly, Hulk is hunted by the authorities, the heroes and villains. To this end, Bruce’s expertise in gamma radiation has enabled him to create devices for teleportation, force fields or hologram projection.
For the sheer ingenuity of his inventions, Dr. Banner belongs near the top of this list.

Thanos. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Skyfather 92%
Certainly, Thanos needs no introduction. Indeed, his villainy, intelligence and resources make him a fomidable foe. Importantly, Thanos’ inventions are for a single purpose: universal destruction!
In Annihilation, Thanos proved why he may be the Marvel Universe’s most dangerous foe. After Tenebrous and Aegis captured Galactus and Silver Surfer, the captured were turned over to the Annihilation Wave.
Dangerously, in order to help Annihilus conquer the Prime Universe, Thanos imprisoned Galactus to a bomb that was absorbing the energy he was feeding on. And the ultimate purpose was to destroy the Marvel multiverse for the Negative Zone.
2A/2B. REED RICHARDS/DOCTOR DOOM
Mister Fantastic. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Metahuman 17%
Doctor Doom. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Skyfather 92%
Not much needs to be said about these two rivals. As matter of fact, Mister Fantastic is ahead of Doctor Doom, especially in the science department. Overall, they are in a league of their own. And that says a lot.
1. HIGH EVOLUTIONARY
High Evolutionary. Marvel Comics.
Power Hierarchy: Skyfather 92%
Among the Skyfathers in Marvel, other than Odin, Zeus, Mephisto and Thanos, High Evolutionary is among the greatest scientific minds. At his highest, High Evolutionary is able to predict the universe from beginning to end.
Where High Evolutionary outclasses every super-genius on the list, is the fact that he has used science to actually create life. Moreover, he created Counter-Earth where Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch travel in the comic.
And that’s our ranking! Don’t forget to leave comments if you liked the Super Power Explained.
In the Modern Age, Vulcan debuted. Simply, he is the brother of Scott and Alex Summers. Strangely, he is a product of both science and institutional slavery. Early, Corsair and pregnant Katherine Summers were abducted by D’Ken, ruler of the Shi’ar Empire. To save both mother and child, Corsair escaped. However, Katherine was killed though the child survived.
Forcibly, the child was removed from her body and grown in an Incubator-Accelerator. To this end, the device was used to breed new slaves to adolescence. Send to Earth to join the Emperor’s hand on Earth, the teenager escaped. There, he was found by Moira McTaggart. Soon, she would educate him on his powers.
Unfortunately, the teenager had no recollection of his past. In fact, he claimed to be Gabriel though he took the codename Kid Vulcan. After an encounter with Professor X, Gabriel learned he was Cyclops’ brother. Soon, he joined the X-Men. Along with Moira’s students; namely, Petra, Darwin and Sway they embarked on mission to rescue the original X-Men from Krakoa. Though the X-Men were rescued, there was a price. In fact, Gabriel and members of his team apparently died.
After the apparent deaths of the team, Cyclops returned to Professor Xavier in a hysterical state, blaming himself for their deaths. The Professor decided it was best for all involved if he altered Scott’s memories to forget about Vulcan and his team, to spare everyone the agony of their loss. A new team was assembled and successfully rescued the original X-Men from Krakoa.
Vulcan and Darwin were launched into space along with the Krakoa landmass by Polaris and remained inert until years later, when the massive backlash of power resulting from M-Day awakened Vulcan.
InX-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #1, Vulcan returns to Earth. In an attempt to locate Professor X missing after House of M, Emma Frost uses Cerebra. Surprisingly, she locates an omega-level mutant and a NASA space-shuttle in re-entry on Earth. Definitely, since Cerebra has been used to identify mutant signatures, it is an indication of Vulcan’s overall power level.
OVERPOWERED, VULCAN HAS POWER OVER THE ENTIRE EM SPECTRUM
Really, Vulcan is overpowered. As an Omega-Level mutant, Vulcan has vast energy projection powers. In fact, his powers extend over the electromagnetic spectrum. In their encounter, the mutant absorbed Adam Warlock‘s magical powers. Effectively, rendering him near powerless. Indeed, Adam Warlock was terrified and confirmed Vulcan is an Omega-Level mutant.
Among Vulcan’s powers are vast energy projection and manipulation, energy absorption, flight at subluminal speed, super strength, energy constructs and telekinesis, power suppression, energy detection and regeneration. In fact, Vulcan possesses these powers at least at a Stellar-Level. Later, we will see what happens when his powers are unleashed against alien races in conquest.
BECOMING #THEMOSTPOWERFULMUTANT, VULCAN CROWNED HIMSELF SHI’AR EMPEROR
Vulcan marries Deathbird. Then, crowns himself Shi’ar Emperor. Marvel Comics.
In X-Men: Deadly Genesis, Professor X states Vulcan is actually one of the most powerful mutants. On Earth, Vulcan meets the X-Men for the first time. In their last battle, the villain is able to take on the X-Men team. Including withstand an all-out Cyclops’ optic blasts and an uppercut from Colossus. In the end, Vulcan ends the fights with a wholesale electric blast that shocks the X-Men.
During Rise and Fall of The Shi’ar Empire, Gabriel proves he is #TheMostPowerfulMutant. Through planning, study, deceit and superior power, Vulcan becomes D’Ken’s second in command. Soon, he captures Professor X to avenge the telepath’s deception early on.
On the M’Kraan Crystal’s homeworld, Professor X is imprisoned. On the day of his wedding to Deathbird, Emperor D’Ken plans to execute the Professor. But not if the X-Men and the Starjammers can do anything about it. In a civil war, the Shi’ar Empire is divided between D’Ken and Lilandra factions. When the X-Men arrive, they side with Lilandra.
However, after dealing with Charles Xavier, Vulcan actually betrays Emperor D’Ken. In a powerful blast, he incinerates the Emperor’s face. Then, by right of blood, combat and succession, he crowns himself Shi’ar Emperor. Really, a powerful statement!
In X-Men: Deadly Genesis (2005) #2, Vulcan proves his telepathy can affect physical systems. Notably, Rachel Summers as Marvel Girl, is one of the most powerful psionics in Marvel. At full potential, she can tap into the Phoenix Force. In the issue, Vulcan was able to stop current in her brain, effectively turning off her telepathy.
Since Rachel Summers has seemingly infinite telepathic potential, the feat is likely Infinite in Energy Projection.
ENERFY PROJECTION FEAT: INFINITE
Energy Projection: Infinite 100%
EMPEROR VULCAN CAN SURVIVE BLACK BOLT’S SONIC SCREAM
Since Cerebra can locate the mutants on Earth, it can indicate Vulcan’s power level. If at the time, there were 198 mutants, we can state that the Energy Projection required to overload Cerebra is Planetary-Level. Since Vulcan is an Omega-Level mutant, it is likely that his Energy Projection in X-Men: Deadly Genesis is at least Multi-Planetary or Stellar.
Because of Gabriel’s mastery of the EM spectrum, we can assume he has the potential for an Infinite-Level of Energy Projection. In fact, due to the requirement for infinite mass in order to reach the speed of light.
VULCAN TAKES ON THE SHI’AR IMPERIAL GUARD
In X-Men: Rise And Fall Of The Shi’Ar Empire, Vulcan fights the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. Marvel Comics.
In the story arc, Vulcan takes on Gladiator and the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. To this end, he plans to take down the Shi’ar Empire in order to avenge himself. In fact, the fight shows why Gabriel is such a dangerous foe. Indeed, his combination of ruthlessness, strategy, energy projection and durability prove more than a match for the Guard. However, when the mutant meets Gladiator, the battle soon turns around to the Imperial Guard’s favor.
Following the X-Tinction Agenda the X-Men, X-Factor and the New Mutants contemplate their next moves against the various threats facing them from around the globe.
Critically, Uncanny X-Men (1991) #273, is one of the best X-Men stories. Together, the X-Men, New Mutants and X-Factor meet at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. To this end, they must meet the global threats to mutants and the X-Men. And, an impending crisis looms.
Together, writer Chris Claremont and a team of artists collaborate on the story. Though stoic, the writing shines on the relationships among the different teams. Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of the 90s: big, bold, fun. Moreover, Gambit vs Wolverine!
Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of the X-Men and on the occasions of birthdays. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Storm! And Iceman!
To begin, this comics foreshadows an important crisis in X-Men continuity. Mysteriously, the menace of the Shadow King looms. Indeed, a trial that will test the X-Men leading to new threats and even new relationships. Such as Rogue and Gambit. In addition, the X-Men must save Professor X.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:
I recommend this comic as one of the most important comics in X-Men history.
Forward in the future, perhaps, the Superhero Registration Act could have been averted had the heroes presented a united front early on. Hopefully, he intends to create a planetary law enforcement to the rest of the universe. Unfortunately, the other attendees do not agree. First, Mister Fantastic questions the scale of the “delegation” and a qualified leadership.1 Second, Doctor Strange raises the problem of bureaucracy. Third, Professor X states Iron Man’s proposition is based on the new fear of the Avengers after the War. Fourth, Black Panther predicts that humans and mutant heroes alike would end up hated together.
KING NAMOR VOTES IN FAVOR OF FORMING THE ILLUMINATI
Fifth, King Namor points out that the Avengers have recruited terrorists such as Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Hawkeye. In addition, he tells of rumors of a Canadian mutant working as an assassin referring to Wolverine. Finally, he questions whether Black Bolt’s brother who was the architect of the invasion, was executed for his crimes.Nevertheless, Mister Fantastic sees merit in sharing information to save lives.
In fact, Doctor Strange suggests they meet privately and Mister Fantastic agrees for the “big things.”1 For his part, Namor trusts the attendees but asks for secrecy. Though he is hesitant, Professor X agrees to scan the minds of everyone at Iron Man’s request. Decisively, Mister Fantastic decides to put forming the team to a vote. All are in favor, except Black Panther. Sternly, he questions the group’s cohesion and the need for secrecy. Then, he departs.
OPPOSING THE HULK DECISION, NAMOR PREDICTS HULK WILL SEEK VENGEANCE ON THE ILLUMINATI
In a recent rampage in Las Vegas, Hulk killed 26 people and a dog. During the S.H.I.E.L.D. briefing, Maria Hill questions what the heroes are doing about the situation. Similarly, she relates Hulk’s lack of control and sporadic heroism to Spider-Man and his unwillingness to finish off Green Goblin alias Norman Osborn. For its part, the government is looking to blame the heroes for their inaction. Some time later, during “House of M,” the Illuminati convene at the Avengers Hydrobase, a former base of operations.
Sinisterly, Iron Man proposes to rocket Hulk into space on an abandoned planet where he will not hurt anyone. Angrily, Namor accuses the heroes of not doing enough to help cure Bruce Banner and opposes the decision. Strongly, Mister Fantastic defends his work in attempting to cure Thing and dampen Hulk; even, Doctor Strange’s attempts to banish Hulk at the crossroads. In reverse, Namor sees the move as retaliation for the Avengers’ failure to prevent House of M.
Nevertheless, Mister Fantastic puts it to a vote: Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Black Bolt and Doctor Strange vote in favor. Violently, Namor attacks Iron Man. To no avail, Mister Fantastic tries to restrain him but Namor goes in pursuit. Sluggishly, the two heroes slug it out underwater. Until, Doctor Strange puts an end to the brawl by encasing both in spells.
Again, King Namor opposes the decision. Prophetically, he predicts Hulk will come back to Earth and he will kill the Illuminati. In fact, he will be correct. Now free, Namor plunges into the waters stating that T’Challa was also correct. Due to “House of M,” Professor X was absent from the vote.
HULK INVADES EARTH AND FORCES THE ILLUMINATI PRISONERS TO FIGHT AS GLADIATORS
When World War Hulk invaded the Earth, he set up a gladiatorial arena in New York City. In ‘World War Hulk’ (2007) #4, Hulk forces the Illuminati to fight as gladiators. Strapped with Obedience Disks, Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, a “Black Bolt” usurper and Doctor Strange fight against a Devil Korker from Sakaar.
Together, they work in team and manage to defeat the monster. Then, in a twist, World War Hulk activates their Obedience Disks to force them to fight each other to the death. When Mister Fantastic defeats Tony Stark, he fights against giving him the killing blow. Heroically, Tony tells him it is the right thing in order to save billions. Sinisterly, Hulk gives Iron Man the thumbs down.

Ororo Munroe is the child of American photojournalist David Munroe and the Kenyan princess N’Dare. She comes from a line of African priestesses that have white hair, blue eyes and the power to use magic.1
Ororo was orphaned at the age of five, as her parents died in a plane crash in Cairo, Egypt. Though she survived from the accident, she developed a deep claustrophobia from being buried in the rubble. She was raised by a gang of thieves led by Achmed El Gibar. Ororo became a thief and once attempted to steal from Professor Xavier. At age 12, she decided to journey South. She accepted a ride from a stranger and was nearly raped by him. She managed to kill the man though she swore never to another human life.2
After nearly dying in the Saharan Desert, she saved T’Challa using her weather powers. The two shared romance though it was ended.3,4 Ororo finally reached her ancestors’ homeland on the Kilimanjaro Valley in Kenya. She was taken in by a tribal woman Ainet who taught her the use of her powers. Soon, Ororo became worshipped by the tribes as a goddess.5
ORORO JOINS THE X-MEN
Years later, Ororo helped the X-Men, battle a mutant known as Deluge that used Ororo’s control of weather to destroy humanity. Afterwards, she returned to her tribe.6
Months later, however, Professor Xavier was left with no choice but to recruit Storm, as he called her, and other mutants from around the world into the X-Men in order to rescue his original students from the threat of the sentient island being, known as Krakoa. Prof. Xavier explained to Ororo that she was not a “goddess”, but a mutant and had a responsibility to use her abilities to help the world, just as she had helped the local tribes. Curious, Ororo accepted Professor Xavier’s offer and was given the code name “Storm”.
