In Avengers (1965) #21, Erik Josten is in the Amazon jungle. There, the former Baron Zemo agent is digging through rubble for the entrance through his lab. Since he is a wanted criminal in Europe, he hopes to repeat the experiment that created the super-powered Wonder Man. In this way, he hopes to change his fate. As fate would have it, the mischievous Enchantress views Erik in a vision and departs to his aid. There, she appears to him in the lab. Mischievously, she promises to work the machine for him.

When he gains super strength, Enchantress seduces the newly-christened Power Man to destroy the Avengers. Soon enough, Enchantress creates illusions around the city of the Avengers destroying property. When Cap’ learns of their plot, he fights Power Man. But he is no match for the super strong enemy. Afterwards, each Avenger is defeated except for Scarlet Witch. In humiliation, the Avengers are caught for trespassing and soon disband.

HOW THE AVENGERS AND THE X-MEN STACK UP IN RAW POWER

ENERGY PROJECTION

Really, Cyclops and Captain America are the two best leaders on Marvel Earth. Generally, they are alpha males that command attention. When they met head-to-head, energy projection was the main factor in Avengers vs X-Men (2012) #2. Without a doubt, the Alpha-Mutant vs the Super-Soldier. Indeed, Cyclops’ optic blasts proved devastating. Though, Cap proved more than capable of handling them. In Civil War: X-Men (2006) #4, Iron Man measured Cyclops’ power output to 2 Gigawatts. Enough to level a city block!

SUPER STRENGTH

In their match-up, Colossus and Red Hulk seemed evenly matched! Colossus’ organic steel can dish out a Planetary-Level punishment. Just ask the Juggernaut! However, Red Hulk simply is in a league of his own in terms of super strength. In our Marvel Universe Strength Hierarchy, we ranked Red Hulk’s most notorious feat: Punching out Uatu the Watcher! Certainly, it was a Galaxy-Level feat! Definitely, we look forward to these two powerhouses duking out some more.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Among the X-Men and Avengers, Emma Frost and Iron Man are among the most dangerous. In addition, they are also the most resourceful in terms of energy projection. Particularly, Emma Frost is an Omega-Class Telepath. During their encounter, Iron Man recognized the threat. Incredibly, he hit Emma with 17,000 Microscopic Telepathic Tasers. Ouch! In response, White Queen switched to diamond form and punched Iron Man in the abdomen. Soon, the fight ended with Magneto’s intervention. Though, Emma Frost proved to be more than a match for Iron Man’s hi-tech.

SUPER SPEEED

In their family reunion, Magneto and Quicksilver were outmatched in super speed. Indeed, Quicksilver proved superior combat speed landing a punch. At the same time, Magneto’s EM Sight allows him to perceive electromagnetic forces and energies on Earth. In part, it explains Magneto’s enhanced perception and his ability to track speedsters. In Vision and the Scarlet Witch (1982) #4, Magneto is able to show heightened reflexes. Reactively, he erects a force field as Quicksilver charges at him at high speed. Though, Quicksilver beats him in raw power speedwise. Nevertheless, both Magneto and Quicksilver are in the same Speed Class.

SUPER STRENGTH

In the Marvel Universe, if Namor gets respect, Thing continues to be underrated. With these two, super strength is all that matters. Bombastically, Namor has tangled with Hulk, Hercules and Luke Cage over the years. In fact, Namor’s overwhelming super strength and brutality always seem to come out on top or draw. For his part, Thing once withstood and pushed back a hydraulo press that could press a planet. Together, these two powerhouses have super strength on a planetary scale. In the super strength department, they are evenly matched.
