Super Power: How Hulk and Thing Match in Super Strength (Film, TV and Comics)

IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER

HULK AND THING ARE MARVEL’S TWO STRONGEST MONSTERS

In 1962, Marvel comics features its historic first crossover between its characters. In Fantastic Four (1962) #12, the Hulk meets Thing and the Fantastic Four for the first time! In a clash of titans, Thing and Hulk battle to save Rick Jones who was kidnapped by the Wrecker.

In fact, since the 1960s, Thing and Hulk have been rivals and celebrated as equals. However, the Hulk-Thing rivalry changed over time, when it became clear that Hulk is a force of nature that dominates most fights, but Thing has a brave heart that will not back down.

Though in the 1980s, mutations in Thing’s abilities and the transformation into Grey Hulk favored Thing. In Fantastic Four (1988) #320, Doctor Doom manipulates the two monsters into fighting against each other. Incredibly, Thing defeats Hulk.

Let’s look at how Thing’s and Hulk’s super strengths match against each other across various media.

TV: THING MATCHES A HULK WITH MEMORY LOSS IN SUPER-STRENGTH

Red Symbiote

From 2013 to 2019, Marvel ran five seasons of Avengers Assemble (2019) on Disney XD. Importantly, the long-running show has been celebrated as one of the best Marvel cartoons. And it is well deserved. It featured important story arcs every season about the Avengers, even ending with a Black Panther story arc in season five.

Perhaps, the best Hulk moment of Season 1 was Hulk’s Day Out. In the episode, Hulk crashes to Earth with a message of doom. Importantly, Hulk has a memory loss and the Avengers must reconstruct his last 24 hours.

In a brief fight, it appears both fighters in the strength and durability departments are evenly matched. Really, their strength is so evenly matched that they lock arms and Captain America must use his shield to separate them.

In the end, the scuffle is a tie.

TV: HULK KNOCKS OUT THING TEMPORARILY



acviking20

Really, Fantastic Four: The World’s Greatest Heroes (2006) attempted to change the FF status quo. Though the series ran for only eight episodes from 2006 to 2007, ScreenRant commended its strong tone and eccentricity.

Particularly, episode 4 featured a powerful battle between the Fantastic Four and the Hulk. True to the comics, Thing appeared as the more skilled fighter though Hulk showed superior brute force.

Initially, both fighters are matched. However, Hulk actually becomes more savage by smashing Thing with cars and finally stomping him with Thing lifting a car above his head. At the same time, Invisible Woman and Human Torch have to step in in order to help.

In the end, with a trick taken from the comic, Mister Fantastic defeats Hulk with an ultrasonic device that reverts him to Bruce Banner.

FILM: THING CAN LIFT THE LONDON EYE

JoBlo Movie Clips

Though Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer (2007) received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, the general consensus is that it was superhero spectacle with a convoluted plot and insufficient characterization for its villains.

Perhaps, one of its least celebrated moments is the London Eye scene towards the beginning of the movie. Early on, Mister Fantastic is able to calculate the Silver Surfer‘s next cosmic phenomenon on Earth. Then, the Fantastic Four are off to London.

When a crater forms in the River Cruise, London is threatened and the FF must save the London Eye: While Thing supports the London Eye, Invisible Woman prevents people from falling and Mister Fantastic anchors it.

Importantly, the London Eye weighs 2100 tons. Over nine feet in the air, Thing generated 185409000 Joules of potential energy, for a City-Block Level feat.

FILM: HULK CAN STOP THE LEVIATHAN WITH A PUNCH

TopMovieClips

Really, Marvel’s The Avengers (2012) sports some of the best cinematic action. Perhaps, the movie is the best superhero movie of all-time. And it is well deserved.

In the final battle, the Avengers finally assemble in order to face Loki and the Chitauri invasion in New York City. When the situation seems hopeless, Hulk saves the day!

Certainly, Hulk’s Leviathan Punch is one of the greatest cinematic moments. In order to stop the three million tons monster travelling at the speed of sound, Bruce Banner changes into the Hulk instantly delivering a titanic punch that stops the monster in its tracks. Then, Iron Man blows it with a missile.

With 1.764735*1014 Watts of power, a Mountain-Level of Super Strength.

COMIC: THING BENCH PRESSED THE HYDRAULO-PRESS

In Fantastic Four (1969) #92, Thing performs the classic hydraulo-press feat. Marvel Comics.

For the most part, Hulk has gone through different incarnations over the comic book ages. During the Bronze Age, Hulk was in top form. Though his power regularly fluctuated, the Jade Giant seemed to have higher peaks.

THE TWO STRONGEST MONSTERS IN ANY UNIVERSE

Database Comics.

In today’s article, we compare two fighters that are the cream of the crop in terms of strength, power, rage… and yes, fighting!

Incredibly, let’s introduce the battle to end all battles: Doomsday, the Ultimate vs The Incredible Hulk. Though these two monsters have yet to face in a crossover, fans have salivated at the thought of a vicious brawl.

Really, both are an A-list hero and a B-list villain in their respective universes. Namely, the legendary Doomsday is famous for being the monster who killed Superman. For his part, Hulk is the Strongest Avenger and only keeps getting stronger.

Though both monsters have evolved multiple forms, let’s compare their strength in terms of their strongest power levels. Hence, we compare Hunter/Prey (HP) Doomsday with Immortal Hulk (IMH).

FORMIDABILITY

Generally, formidability is the ability to compete, match and defeat a foe despite overwhelming odds. Usually, formidability indicates a warrior’s ability to defeat a stronger, more powerful and more resourceful enemy.

For this reason, it is almost interchangeable with the Fighting Skills Level. For example, this explains why Batman is able to defeat Killer Croc or Bane who are in fact stronger or more powerful.

Using tactics, training, technology, resources and intel, Batman is usually able to take on more powerful opponents.

Before we rank our two heroes, let’s list some rules.

  1. First, the hero should be able to consistently defeat opponents above their strength class or power level.
  2. In terms of power level or fighting skills, they should have few or no weaknesses.
  3. Consistently, they should face quality opponents that are at least able to destroy a city.
  4. Finally, they should have fewer limitations in power, strength, ability or intelligence.

First, we will compare them in Strength Class, Weaknesses, Quality Opponents and Limitations. At the top, you can check their Formidability Scores. To note, all scores are rated out of a 100.

 

VISIT THE COLLECTOR’S SHIP!

1. STRENGTH CLASS

Generally, both H/P Doomsday and IMH possess a Boundless-Level of Super Strength. As matter of fact, this means they have an infinite amount of Super-Strength and can become as strong as necessary.

In the case of H/P Doomsday, his Super Strength is more properly speaking a form of Reactive Evolution and Resurrection. In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #1, after Darkseid fells Doomsday with his Omega Effect, Doomsday come back to life.

When Doomsday comes back to life, he evolves an adaptation to Darkseid’s Omega Effect which can no longer harm him. And what we estimate to be a Universal-Level of Super-Strength. Theoretically, there is no upper limit to his Super-Strength.

On the other hand, Immortal Hulk, also has the novel power of Resurrection. In fact, he theoretically cannot die. Or in better words, he resurrects from every death. In the first issue, IMH resurrects from a gunshot wound to the head and finds he can smell lies.

In effect, IMH is immortal and can only be killed by the being who is the source of his power, the One-Below-All. Really, Immortal Hulk has Boundless Super-Strength since he can defeat Gods or Abstracts.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

2. WEAKNESSES

For the most part, Doomsday’s weakness is properly speaking Universal Forces. In the comic, Doomsday is felled by Darkseid’s Omega Effect. Because of the OE’s powers and its relation to the chaotic side of the Source, the Omega Effect is certainly a power of entropy.

Really, the only way to defeat H/P Doomsday is to subject him to the powers of entropy. At the end of the comic, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe with Waverider’s help, ending his murderous rampage.

In some sense, Immortal Hulk is protected by a Divine Enchantment. As a host of the One-Below-All, who rules Hell, he comes back from every death. Though he can be wounded, pierced and even killed, he always resurrects. Effectively, his Weakness lasts as long as the Divine Enchantment.

Generally, though both warriors are evenly matched in strength, IMH may lack the specific power necessary to finally overcome H/P Doomsday’s onslaught. As Doomsday evolves, he may land the killing blow that severes his connection to the Green Door.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

3. QUALITY OPPONENTS

Generally, Immortal Hulk has a decisive advantage in this department. Over a more developed series, IMH faces multiple opponents such as Sasquatch, the Avengers and even the One-Below-All.

In Immortal Hulk Vol 1 13, Immortal Hulk faces the One-Below-All and his horde of monsters in Hell. Importantly, he has to deal with his father who disowns him as a child of evil. Decisively, Hulk swats him away dispersing at the same time, the One-Below-All.

In the Marvel hierarchy, the One-Above-All, is the God of the Marvel Multiverse. Oppositely, the One-Below-All is below and is unthinking monster that needs gamma-ray powered hosts in the Marvel multiverse.

Certainly, IMH’s Quality Opponents are God or Abstract-Level.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

4. LIMITATIONS

Though H/P Doomsday is more limited due to his lack of intelligence, his Boundless Super-Strength, Reactive Evolution, Resurrection and Universal-Level Durability make up for them.

For his part, IMH is only limited by his Power Dependency as a gamma-ray host of One-Below-All.

In general, since both characters are monsters, Intelligence is not an isssue.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

VERDICT:

Though Immortal Hulk is more powerful and can defeat a God or Abstract, the outcome is either a stalemate or a win for Doomsday who can only be defeated by entropy.

And that’s our ranking! Don’t forget to leave comments if you liked the DC vs Marvel.

Anime/Manga: Goku vs One-Punch Man

 

ANIME/MANGA

INTRO

Database Comics.

IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER

THE TWO STRONGEST WARRIORS IN ANIME

Database Comics.

For our very first Anime/Manga article, we compare two of the best warriors in manga and anime. For dedicated fans, who have been following the media, manga and anime produce some of the most gravity-defying and exhilarating fights in all fandom.

In today’s article, we compare two fighters that are the cream of the crop in terms of fighting spirit, determination, strength and yes… fighting!

Though both universes have never met, what would happen in a battle between the strongest Saiyan, Goku and the strongest hero in anime, One-Punch Man?

Really, both are A-list and B-class heroes in their respective universes. Namely, the legendary Goku recently appeared in the mega-hit Dragon Ball Super animated film Dragon Ball Super: Broly. For his part, the debonnaire Saitama continues his journey towards becoming an A-Class hero.

Though both heroes have shown devastating attacks, let’s compare their strength in terms of fighting monsters, not just villains. Hence, we compare Super Saiyan 3 (SSJ3) Goku with the Dragon Fist vs One-Punch Man with the Serious Fist.

KI AND POWER LEVELS

Generally, the concept of power levels understood scientifically or physically is not useful in anime and manga. In fact, this is due to the concept of ki.

In anime and manga, characters’ strengths are not dependent on how much physical strength they can exert, or how much they can lift. Instead, they depend on their ability to use their natural life force for devastating attacks, super speed or abilities such as flying.

In many respects, these are an application of martial arts and Chinese philosophies to the arts of fighting and war. For these reasons, we compare these warriors in terms of formidability.

FORMIDABILITY

Generally, formidability is the ability to compete, match and defeat a foe despite overwhelming odds. Usually, formidability indicates a warrior’s ability to defeat a stronger, more powerful and more resourceful enemy.

For this reason, it is almost interchangeable with the Fighting Skills Level. For example, this explains why Batman is able to defeat Killer Croc or Bane who are in fact stronger or more powerful.

Using tactics, training, technology, resources and intel, Batman is usually able to take on more powerful opponents.

Before we rank our two heroes, let’s list some rules.

  1. First, the hero should be able to consistently defeat opponents above their strength class or power level.
  2. In terms of power level or fighting skills, they should have few or no weaknesses.
  3. Consistently, they should face quality opponents that are at least able to destroy a city.
  4. Finally, they should have fewer limitations in power, strength, ability or intelligence.

First, we will compare them in Strength Class, Weaknesses, Quality Opponents and Limitations. Then, let’s rank Super Saiyan 3 Goku and One-Punch Man in Formidability. To note, all scores are rated out of a 100.

1. STRENGTH CLASS

Generally, SSJ3 Goku is among the strongest transformations of the hero. On many occasions, the transformation is used as a last resort. This is because in Dragon Ball Z and after, Goku has not fully mastered the form.

Though it is able to generate a lot of destructive power even creating shockwaves over the entire Earth when transforming during the Majin Buu saga. At the same time, it comes at a great expenditure of life force, such that Goku can only maintain it for less than an hour.

In Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon, Goku uses the Dragon Fist for the first time to destroy Hirudegarn. Properly speaking, the attack is Planetary Level since Hirudegarn was strong enough to devastate the planet.

On the other hand, One-Punch Man rates as strong as SSJ3 Goku. In most of his fights, Saitama is nonchalant and appears bored. In fact, his strength level is so great that in Season 1 he defeats his opponents without being harmed.

However, in the case of Boros, One-Punch Man met an interesting match. Initially, the villain was able to regenerate from Saitama’s Simple Punches. But when Boros threatened to destroy the planet with his Collapsing Star Roaring Canon, Saitama became serious.

With his Serious Punch, One-Punch Man leapt through the attack and annihilated Boros. Properly speaking, One-Punch Man’s Strength Class is Planetary.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

2. WEAKNESSES

For the most part, Goku’s main weakness has been his compassion. In his battles, he has often gotten the upper-hand on his opponents, only to lose because he would not finish them. Nonetheless, Goku remains the strongest of the Saiyans and a fighting genius.

Indeed, he has mastered multiple techniques over the years such as Kaio Ken, Kamehameha Wave, Instant Transmission and yes, the Dragon Fist.

It appears the technique is possible only under Super Saiyan 3. Notably, it shows one of Goku’s most vicious attacks as he is rarely shown to fight to the death. Perhaps, Goku would perform better in his fights with such a mindset.

Generally, One-Punch Man is THE perfect warrior. Though he does have a weakness which is his lack of interest in fights due to his overwhelming strength. In a fight with the Saiyan, it could cause some problems though Saitama seems to be a true hero.

As a hero who has mastered martial arts, One-Punch Man has developed multiple techniques such as his Simple Punch, his Serious Punch or even the Roaring Cannon.

Overall, both fighters seem about even in terms of Weaknesses though they overcome their Hubris with the Dragon Fist and the Serious Punch.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

3. QUALITY OPPONENTS

Perhaps, the most confusing area to consider. Goku’s most dangerous foes tend to be creations of mad scientists such as Cell or Majin Buu. At the same time, aliens such as Freeza and even Saiyans have fought him to the death.

Though their physical strength is often around Building-City, their Power Level or ki tends to be around Planetary. In terms of Power Level, Goku’s strongest opponents are Planetary-Level.

In comparison, One-Punch Man seems to have adopted a more Western or perhaps empirical approach. During his battle with Mirugori, One-Punch Man survives Giant Man’s blows and leaps out of a 100 meter crater to deliver a devastating blow.

Initially, with 9.48*109 J of energy, this would put his Durability at Building Level. Later, in his fight against Boros, the villain kicks him into the moon.

At 384.4 million meters of distance between Earth and the moon, Saitama withstood at least 3.64*1016 J of energy. Effectively, his durability is from Multi-Continent to Moon Level. Overall, SSJ3 Goku has better Durability with similar Quality Opponents at the Champion Level.

ADVANTAGE: GOKU

4. LIMITATIONS

Really, both heroes are astoundingly powerful and strong. Though Saitama seems to have no upper end to his Strength Class, Goku seems to have no upper limit to his transformations.

At the end of the day, it is the Superman vs Goku question: Unlimited Super Strength vs Unlimited Ki. Perhaps, their only Limitation is Willpower.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

Super Power: Contrary To Professor X, Storm’s Weather Powers Indicate Her African Ancestry Passed Down Godhood Through Magic

PROFESSOR X THOUGHT STORM WAS A MUTANT

Before joining the X-Men, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a rain/fertility goddess by local tribesmen in Kenya. When the original X-Men team was missing, Professor X assembled new members to rescue them. During the first meeting, Professor X revealed to Ororo that she was not a goddess, instead, she was a mutant. Really, he made her the offer to discover the real world and fight for the cause of mutants. Curiously, Ororo accepted.

STORM’S WEATHER POWERS ARE THE RESULT OF MUTATION

Correctly, Storm’s weather powers are the result of mutation. In fact, Storm is one of the powerful mutants on Earth. Furthermore, the X-Man has been classified as an Omega Level mutant. With training and experience under Professor X’s direction, Storm has grown in skill, power and leadership.

An instance that supports Professor X’s thesis is Feat: Black Panther, ‘Doomwar’ #1. Here, T’Challa proactively invented a cell that nullifies the X-gene. Effectively, Storm has no powers under such conditions. However, there is evidence that Storm’s powers are based on magic and witchcraft.

STORM’S ATMOKINESIS

Atmokinesis: Storm is one of the most powerful mutants on Earth and has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to manipulate the weather.[167] Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of Weather Manipulation. She has been able to control both Earthly and extraterrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. [Storm] can modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level),[167] generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. [Storm] can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes,[168] as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

STORM IS A GODDESS OF THE STORM INHERITED THROUGH A LINE OF AFRICAN WITCHES

In ‘Marvel Tarot’ (2007) #1, we find out about Storm’s line of ancestry. In reality, Ororo Munroe descends from a line of witches. All of them, have distinctive white hair, blue eyes and the potential to wield magic. We can formulate two theories to explain Storm’s super powers.

First, Storm’s super powers showcase magical potential and properly unite science and magic. Here, the evidence that supports our hypothesis is the fact that Storm derives power from faith. In Wakanda, she is properly worshipped as a Goddess of the Storm. Furthermore, Black Panther, her former husband and King, considered her a goddess.

Second, Storm’s super powers are both divine and genetic. As Goddess of the Storm, she can hear and grant prayers. At the same time, her godhood is both the result of religion and magical inheritance. Indeed, Storm has both white hair and blue eyes. Therefore, these phenotypes presuppose a genetic basis. In addition, there is evidence that her powers are based on the X-gene. In conclusion, this may provide a rare case in the Marvel Universe where magical potential has a genetic basis. Moreover, it is possible that the X-gene is itself recessive.

The black f'rest holds many secrets,
t'rrifying, mesm'rizing, the dunnest:
"a daemonic hag with with'r'd breasts",
cackling cryptic messages and 'racles,
wand'ring the hoods in circles,
marta's songbirds leading out black f'rest. 
 lighteth pi'rcing through the woods,the day's hour,
suddenly, a leshen! vanquish'd by beldams'r
