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.

In our Black History Month feature story, we feature Isaiah Bradley, the first African American Captain America. Originally, Sgt. Luke Evans leads Isaiah’s all-black military unit.

During the Second World War, Colonel Walker Price and Dr. Josef Reinstein enlist 500 black military into Project Rebirth. Unbeknownst, the U.S. Army tests them with the Super Soldier Serum to develop additional Super Soldiers.

Previously, Steven Rogers successfully completed the Super Soldier program and became Captain America. Tragically, the majority of the candidates do not survive the experiments.

Only five African Americans, namely, Sgt. Luke Evans, Isaiah Bradley, Maurice Canfield, Damon Larsen and Larry Pitts survive to form a black special-ops team.

Secretly, the Army sends the families of the deceased military letters explaining their deaths as a result of explosions in combat.

In 1942, they deploy in multiple missions in Europe to fight Nazi Germany. On a mission, Larsen is killed and the squad discovers medical supplies for Koch Pharmazeutik. Then, in Sintra, Portugal, only Evans, Bradley and Canfield remain.

There, they await the arrival of Captain America. When Maurice finds out about his parents’ deaths, his enlarged thyroid, rage and PTSD lead to a fight. After the fight, only Bradley survives.

Afterwards, Isaiah is sent on his last mission. In fact, it is a suicide mission to kill Doctor Kosh, stop the development of the German Super-Soldier formula and destroy the Nazi camp in Schwarzebitte.

On his way, Isaiah steals a Captain America uniform and shield. To the enemy, he becomes… the Black Captain America! Though Isaiah meets the mission objectives, the Nazis capture him. In the interrogation room, the Fuhrer meets him.

Then, they transport the Captain to Auschwitz. On the way, German freedom fighters save Captain America. After being smuggled in Europe, he is able to report back to the U.S. Army in America.

However, the Army sentence Bradley to life in prison for having stolen the Captain America uniform and shield.

From 1943, during seventeen years, he serves time in solitary confinement where his mind and body deteriorate due to improper medical care.

Later, his wife Faith is able to obtain his pardon after writing President Eisenhower a letter a month for three years. In 1960, he is released on President Kennedy’s Inauguration ceremony.

THE SUPER-SOLDIER SERUM WAS A U.S.-GERMAN ARMS RACE

In the present, Captain America investigates Bradley’s apparent death after his last mission per the U.S. Army. When he meets with Colonel Walker Price, he finds out the truth about the Super-Soldier Serum.

Originally, it was born out of eugenics, an attempt to improve the human gene pool with “racial hygiene” and enhanced physical traits.1

After the Great War, the U.S., Great Britain and Germany took the lead in the eugenics movement. When Hitler took power in Germany, he recruited Dr. Reinstein and Dr. Koch on Project Rebirth.

To this end, its aim was to create the Super-Soldier. Early, it was a joint U.S.-German business venture. After Hitler’s Nazism arose and he declared the Second World War, Project Rebirth split into two. After, the Super-Soldier race was on.

IN GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY

ON EARTH-1610, A BLACK NICK FURY IS THE FIRST SUPER-SOLDIER

In Ultimate Origins (2008) #1, we learn about the conspiracies in the Ultimate Universe. At the start of the issue, we learn of the origins of the Super-Soldier Serum. To begin, Bruce Banner tells Spider-Man a secret. In fact, the Super-Soldier and Weapon X programs are all connected. However, General Thaddeus Ross and the U.S. Army are hunting down Banner. When Ross storms in, Banner Hulks out. Then, he escapes with the Army in hot pursuit. Fast backward in time, we meet Corporal James Howlett, Nick Fury and Private Fisk. During WWII, the trio is attempting to loot a house in Sicily.

The American Military Police arrives and arrests them. Without due process, they lock Fury at an unknown location. At the prison, there are other black men. There, Dr. Abraham Erskine, the lead on Project Rebirth, meets him. Against his will, Erskine enrolls Fury into the program. Sinisterly, he is Subject 22. Immediately, the army personnel straps Fury to a chair. Then, he is injected with the Super-Soldier Serum. Incredibly, the Super-Soldier experiment succeeds. Amazingly, Fury develops superhuman abilities. Heroically, the Super-Soldier busts out of his restraints and frees the prisoners.

WITH WEAPON X CANADA STARTED A SUPER-SOLDIER ARMS RACE

For his part, Canadian paratrooper Howlett was enrolled into the Weapon X program. In 1943, in Alberta, Canada, Dr. Abraham Cornelius successfully created the first mutant. In fact, Howlett was dubbed Mutant Zero. On awakening, James’ animality rose and he attempted to escape. Reaching the top of the snowy mountain, he was shot in the head. Amazingly, he survived as his wounds healed. Later, they brought him back to base. In fact, it was in response to the development of the Super-Soldier Serum. After, Canada created its own variants.

Indeed, Dr. Cornelius discovered the mutant gene. Incredibly, the Weapon X program managed to activate the mutant gene. Hence, Mutant Zero would develop super powers. Intently, they planned on spreading the gene creating the mutant race. In the 2000s, Weapon X became a counter-terrorism subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tragically, mutants were captured and sent on missions. Effectively, mutants were considered Super-Soldiers by governments. In fact, they participated to fight wars across the world. Particularly, the Super-Soldier vs mutant war erupted in Ultimate War (2003).

In Ultimate Origins (2008) #1, James Howlett is riddled with bullets.

Super Power: Luke Cage’s Burnstein Process Makes Him More Than A Super-Soldier

IN MARVEL UNIVERSE

LUKE CAGE IS A REFORMED GANGSTER

In ‘Hero For Hire’ (1972) #2 , the origin story of Lucas Cage is told.

Having reached adulthood, Luke Cage sought to better himself by finding legitimate employment. He maintained former gang ties and when one of his friends, Stryker, a criminal was hit by the Maggia, Luke saved him. This created a rift with another former gang member Reva who turned to Lucas and broke up with Stryker. Learning this, Stryker planted heroin stolen from Cottonmouth’s place and tipped off the cops. Lucas got arrested for a crime he did not commit and was sentenced to prison.

In prison, Luke was filled with rage over his friend’s betrayal and the supposed loss of his father. He got into brawls and his violent behavior got him transferred to Seagate Prison, one of the toughest prisons.

THE BURNSTEIN PROCESS IS A VARIATION OF THE SUPER-SOLDIER SERUM

At Seagate Prison, Dr. Burnstein was doing medical research on cellular regeneration based on a variant of the Super-Soldier serum. He selected Lucas as a volunteer.

Read on!

He immersed Lucas in the “Electro-Biochemical System“, a device that contained an electrical field conducted by an organic chemical compound. When he left equipment unattended, Rackham tampered with the controls, hoping to kill Lucas. However, the treatment was accelerated past its intended purpose causing mutagenic change throughout Lucas’ body, fortifying his cells giving him superhuman strength and durability. Lucas used his new-found powers to escape the prison and make his way back to Harlem. A chance encounter with criminals inspired him to use his new powers for profit.[10]

Luke Cage (Earth-616)

The Burnstein Process granted Luke Cage superhuman abilities, even greater than Captain America such as superhuman strength (he is able to lift up to 50 tons), a healing factor, nigh-invulnerability and superhuman stamina.

Burstein Process: Luke Cage possesses various superhuman physical enhancements after undergoing a Super-Soldier experiment known as the Burstein Process, which was designed to increase his body’s cellular regeneration rate.

Cyclops sends Sunspot, Namor and Hepzibah to Tabula Rasa, while the Avengers send Thing, Luke Cage and She-Hulk.

The Avengers stumble upon a cave, investigate and are attacked by creatures. Meanwhile, the X-Men and the Queen also investigate. Then, Namor discovers Luke Cage and a battle ensues.

Namor attacks Luke Cage with an airborne piledriver then tosses Luke into the river. Using the Burnstein Process, Luke Cage holds his breath underwater. Noting that Luke can’t breathe nor speak, Namor says Luke Cage is weakening. Then, Luke Cage draws a punch. Namor exclaims “Imperius Rex” and responds with a devastating punch that creates a wave out of the water.1

Then, Namor knocks out both She-Hulk and Luke Cage by using Luke Cage as a bludgeon.

WINNER: LUKE CAGE LOSES BY KNOCKOUT
