DB Comics Mailbag: “If The Hulk Enveloped A Nuclear Bomb And It Went Off What Would Happen?” (About ‘Tales To Astonish’)

In 'Tales To Astonish' (1964) #62, Hulk survives a gamma bomb at ground zero.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

THE HULK HAS SURVIVED NUKES AND GAMMA BOMBS

In 'Tales To Astonish' (1964) #62, Hulk survives a gamma bomb at ground zero.
In Tales To Astonish (1964) #62, Hulk survives a gamma bomb at ground zero. 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 | Science Mission Directorate

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.

Can you tell me about gamma-ray bursts?

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!

Can Hulk withstand nuclear explosions?, Quora

Now, let’s answer the user’s question explaining the Hulk’s superhuman durability.

HOW HULK’S DURABILITY WORKS

3. 800 POUNDS OF BONE MARROW AND MUSCLE TISSUE

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.

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.

Realistically, a muscle can withstand a force of 30-40 Newtons or 3-4 kg. With up to 800 pounds of muscle, Hulk can lift up to 3.2 tons at baseline strength.

2. HULK’S CELLS ARE LIKELY IMMORTAL

In 'World War Hulk: X-Men' (2007) #1, Hulk's eyes regenerate after they had been clawed out by X-23.
In World War Hulk: X-Men (2007) #1, Hulk’s eyes regenerate after they had been clawed out by X-23. Marvel Comics.

In World War Hulk: X-Men (2007) #1, Hulk seeks revenge on Professor X and the Illuminati after they exiled him to Sakaar. In the issue, Hulk comes to the Xavier Institute For Higher Learning in search of Professor X.

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

In ‘Incredible Hulk’ (2010) #610, Hulk performs a super strength feat. He reverts to Hulk and his step creates creates earthquakes on the Eastern states. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

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.

Only beings such as Silver Surfer have been able to defeat Hulk completely by calming his anger. Visit our article on Black Bolt and the Heralds of Galactus.

Visit the wiki here FOR HULK’S FEAT.

ANSWER:

Hulk’s highly durable and muscular skin, immortal cells and dynamic durability allow him to withstand nukes and gamma bombs.

BEST: ESSENTIAL SILVER SURFER VOL. 1 (1968-1970)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Dialogue: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Plot: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Characterization: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Art: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

In comicdom, there are few legendary names. In 1968, two of Marvel comics’ biggest names collaborated on a timeless and favorite story: Legendary writer and editor Stan Lee worked with artist John Buscema to bring the classic Silver Surfer series of the period.

As matter of fact, I gave 5.0 out of 5.0 to Essential Silver Surfer, Vol. 1 (Marvel Essentials) for being a dreamy space (or earth-bound) soap opera about a god-like alien estranged among the mere mortals. Really, it does not get better than this Marvel Essential. Indeed, this is the comic genre at its best for all Marvel-ites to enjoy.

To recommend, the trade paperback format offers some of the biggest 528 pages that fans can enjoy. From the beginning, what separates Silver Surfer from other Marvel heroes is that he has no flaws, except that of human misunderstanding. Indeed, witness Surfer’s titanic battles against the Overlord, the Stranger, Loki, Spider-Man. And yes… the dreamy cover and the dramatic start of the Silver Surfer vs Thor rivalry..

DIALOGUE

In many respects, Silver Surfer’s first classic story is Shakespearean melo-drama. First, our protagonist is a melancholic character who is comfortable with monologues and long speeches. At the same time, he has the flair for the dramatic and seems to experience events in a passionate way. Indeed, witness Surfer saving a young Latino woman from war only to be rewarded with a kiss. But, lo and behold, his forsaken lover Shalla-Bal witnesses the scene from a flying spacecraft.

PLOT

Volume 1 focuses on Silver Surfer after the events of the Galactus trilogy and Fantastic Four #55-60. In fact, Silver Surfer rebelled against Galactus his master in order to save the Earth from destruction. After, Galactus punished the Sentinel by removing his space-born powers. Now, the Silver Surfer is stranded on Earth which he cannot leave due to a space barrier placed by the Devourer of Worlds. During his time on Earth, the tragic hero attempts to gain humanity’s trust and understanding but with continued failures. The plot progresses quickly and takes him to Asgard, the Netherworld and into space. Really, it does not get better than a space-faring soap opera!

VISIT THE BATTLE RANKER PAGE

CHARACTERIZATION

Where Stan Lee and John Buscema succeed is in the thrill of adventure and passion. However, what is lacking is true character evolution. In some sense, despite humanity’s hatred, it takes 18 issues for the Silver Surfer to finally change his stance towards humanity. At the same time, though a hero, he initially remains a lone hero, without a regular supporting cast.

ART

Perhaps, the art is the series’ strongest point. John Buscema’s pencils are drawn to perfection and he has produced the most imposing and welcoming Silver Surfer to date. Though a bit embellished, Buscema’s pencils draw distinctive characters. Indeed, the women tend to have curvy physiques, long hair and full lips while the men have strong arms, big hands and very proportionate physiques. Really, Buscema’s classical training appears.

VERDICT

Finally, the Marvel Essentials storyline is high spectacle. Really, Stan Lee and John Buscema make a powerful combination. As matter of fact, they work seamlessly with tight plots, unrelenting action and gorgeous panels to create a work of legend.

Definitely, this storyline is one of the greatest Marvel stories ever told. Indeed, it belongs in every Marvel-ite’s collection.

#WEFEARVENOM IN THE BEST MARVEL COMIC OF 2021

Triumphantly, King in Black is the Best Of The Year for Marvel. Since Secret Wars, the crossover event has been building up. Importantly, the Marvel Universe is threatened by a menace older than the universe: Knull. As the God of the symbiotes, he has set up an army to extinguish all light in the Marvel Universe.

And when he attempts to recruit Eddie Brock, the villain rejects his offer. Significantly, the important development in the series is the successful redemption of Venom into a hero. Indeed, this is the reason why King in Black is the best Marvel comic in 2021. Finally, #WeFearVenom as the terrifying and new King in Black.

Super Power Explained: When Fed And When Hungry, How Tough Is Galactus?

IN SUPERVILLAINS

GALACTUS POSSESSES THE POWER COSMIC

With his eye-beams, Galactus removes Silver Surfer’s space-born powers, stranding him to Earth. Marvel Comics.

In the Marvel Universe, no being was more feared than Galactus. Recently, he met his timely end at the hands of Thor, in Devourer King. When King Thor became Galactus’ Herald, he was imbued with the Power Cosmic. Namely, Galactus possesses this reservoir of ambient, cosmic energy at an incalculable level. In fact, Galactus’ possession of the Power Cosmic makes him a cosmic entity on par with Eternity, the embodiment of the Marvel Universe. There are other reservoirs of power as well such as the Power Primordial which powers the Elders of the Universe.

Incredibly, Galactus possesses the Power Cosmic at a Universal Level with the potential to create or destroy the Marvel Universe. Definitely, such power is god-like and explains why the Devourer of Worlds eats planets. If the Star-God’s catalogue of super powers is endless, let’s examine his durability.

In other words, how tough is Galactus, when fed and when hungry?

GALACTUS’ POWER LEVEL

In Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier.
In Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier. Marvel Comics.

In The Galactus Trilogy, Earth-616 is threatened by Galactus for the first time. Somberly, Silver Surfer arrives to announce the end of the world. When Galactus comes to Earth, he clashes with the Fantastic Four. Meanwhile, Silver Surfer meets Alicia Masters. Fortunately, she convinces Norrin to turn against his master. Together, the FF and Silver Surfer are aided by Uatu the Watcher in their battle. When Human Torch retrieves the Ultimate Nullifier from Taa II at Watcher’s directions, the tide changes. In possession of the Ultimate Nullifier, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with annihilation unless he leaves.

Since the UN is an artifact on Galactus’ solar system-sized home, it gives an estimation of his power level. Importantly, the Nullifier can lay waste to a galaxy, and destroy a universe. As a result, Galactus relented his invasion. In terms of durability, this means Galactus is at least Galaxy-Level in Durability and Power Level. However, that is not enough to determine his fed and hungry states.

WHEN HUNGRY

In Thanos (2004) #6, Thanos crashes Rigel-3 and Rigel-18 onto Galactus and Hunger. Marvel Comics.

In Thanos: Redemption (Thanos (2003-2004)), Galactus is manipulated by the cosmic entity named the Hunger. In an attempt to rid himself of his cosmic hunger, Galactus accidentally summons the Hunger into the Earth-616 reality.

Though Thanos finds out about Hunger’s machinations, he fails in stopping Galactus. After the Hunger enters this reality, Thanos brings in the big guns! Powerfully, the mad Titan teleports old Rigel-3 into Rigel-18’s orbit. On a collision course, both planets slam onto each other in a cosmic conflagration. In between, Galactus and Hunger are caught in the collision. Incredibly, Galactus survives.

Previously, Hunger had severely weakened Galactus who was in a hungry state. If we estimate Galactus’ durability feat, we can make a comparison. In fact, if we collide two planets the size of Earth at orbital velocity, the work done is at least Stellar-Level in Energy Projection. Indeed, a hungry Galactus is at least Stellar-Level in Durability.

Then, a sated Galactus enters the core of the galaxy. Powerfully, Galactus survives the gravitational force at the core of the Milky Way galaxy without any trouble. Definitely, a feat requiring a Galaxy to Universal-Level durability.

In the issue, it is stated that Galactus survived the previous universe’s destruction. If Galactus can survive the forces of entropy, that puts his potential durability as Universal-Level.

IN SUPERHERO BATTLES

PREVIOUSLY, SILVER SURFER’S LEFT ARM WAS TAINTED WITH DARKNESS BATTLING KNULL

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ #2, Silver Surfer was previously tainted in darkness. At the beginning of time, Silver Surfer had found the god of darkness. In a battle with Knull, the Sentinel was turned into the dark Elder God’s Void Knight. Fortunately, Surfer was freed from Klyntar by the intervention of Ego the Living Planet. Weak from his battle, the Sentinel of the Spaceways was contaminated by the darkness. In fact, his left hand was tainted with the Living Abyss. Growing, the darkness doomed Surfer. In fact, it was a matter of time before the darkness overtook him.

In ‘Silver Surfer: Black’ #3, Silver Surfer seeks to restore his Power Cosmic. Incredibly, Surfer was guided by Ego to the Black Galaxy. There, Surfer identified his benefactor. Near the planet, he asked Ego if he could rest upon it. To which it agreed. While resting, the Surfer noticed earthquakes on the planet. Sensing a problem, he offered to help if Ego helped him fight Knull. Begrudgingly, Ego accepted. Inside the planet’s core, Norrin fought off its antibodies. There, he found the Lifebringer One, a growing Galactus. Horrified, Silver Surfer decides to destroy the future Devourer of Worlds. Later, he relents.

IN AN EPIC FIGHT, SILVER SURFER DEFEATS KNULL

EGO THE LIVING PLANET CONNECTS SILVER SURFER TO ALL THE LIFE IN THE COSMOS

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (2019) #4, Ego infuses Silver Surfer with the power of the Light. Previously, Surfer planned to kill Galactus in orer to change history. After an astral conversation with Galan, Norrin changes plans. In fact, he wants to allow Marvel history to take its course.

Having returned to Ego the Living Planet, Surfer communicates him his plan. Telepathically, Ego looks into Surfer’s mind. Then, he connects Surfer to all the life in the cosmos. Infused with the power of Light, Silver Surfer is prepared to battle the approaching Knull.

In 'Silver Surfer' (2019) #4, Silver Surfer wraps a chain around the Lifebringer One and tows it towards Helios-Ra.

SILVER SURFER TRANSFORMS HIS BOARD INTO A SWORD AGAINST ALL-BLACK

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (2019) #5, Silver Surfer faces off against Knull a second time. However, this time, the Surfer vows to stop the dark god no matter the cost. During the titanic clash, Knull’s darkness contaminates Silver Surfer even moe. Now, the darkness tainting Surfer covers almost his entire body.

Epically, Silver Surfer transforms his flying surfboard into a sword. Mano a mano, the two warriors appear evenly matched. Indeed, it appears Silver Surfer’s sword is a match for All-Black, Knull’s sword. However, Surfer is reminded that Knull is not a single entity but a horde. Viciously, tendrils lash off the symbiote-dragon. And they engulf Silver Surfer in the darkness. Apparently, the King in Black has won the battle.

SILVER SURFER CREATES A STAR TO DEFEAT KNULL

Desperately, Silver Surfer shackled by tendrils, senses the end. Forcefully, the darkness seeks to conquer the Light. However, as Knull draws near, the Light stirs the Surfer. Valiantly, he remembers his courage. Incredibly, Silver Surfer creates a sun momentarily reclaiming his light.

In anguish, Knull is incinerated and screams in pain. As the sun glows in the cosmos, Knull is sent away to the edges of the universe. But, Silver Surfer knows the villain will return. Courageously, Silver Surfer seeks to restore the cosmic balance.

Matt Fraction’s dialogue is always fun to read and this plot is perfect! Copiel’s Thor is always amazing and this is no different! The outcome is interesting and could lead anywhere. I really loved this book! Great read!”
