Power Level Wiki

WHAT IS A POWER LEVEL?

A Power Level weighs the average Power Level of a given character. Since characters’ power levels fluctuate in their different incarnations, periods and issues, the Power Level reflects the average power level of a given character. In comic battles, we use the overall Power Level of the character during the story arc to get a measure of their super powers.

RULES

  1. Power Levels fluctuate. Taking their averages, we attempt to keep them constant.
  2. Since Power Levels occur in fictional settings, we attempt to find their correspondence in real world settings.
  3. In most instances, the Metric System is used.
  4. In order to calculate a Power Level:
    • First, look at the Power Level in the context of the story arc.
    • Second, find a feat or battle in the story arc that is quantifiable. If the Power Levels are similar, use it as an estimate.
    • Third, use your knowledge of real-world science, mathematics, technology and math. Apply this knowledge to calculate the Power Level.
    • Fourth, find a real-world comparison to rate the Power Level.
  5. Rate a character’s feat according to incarnation, continuity and time period.

GOALS

  1. Rating feats with Power Levels has the goal of ultimately obtaining a character’s Power Level over different incarnations and continuities.
  2. Build wiki articles of characters’ feats.
  3. Rank characters by Power Level and Fighting Skills.
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.

HOW TO CALCULATE SUPER-STRENGTH FEATS:

Rating super-strength feats involves calculations for pulling, lifting, striking and moving. These calculations usually involve Newtonian physics. Pulling, lifting and moving feats are forces acting on an object over a distance. Rating these feats often require calculating the forces in Newtons before converting to Joules/s. Striking feats require calculations for stress, strain and Young’ Modulus. The results are often in psi, lbf, Pascals then conversion to Joules/s.

HOW TO CALCULATE ENERGY PROJECTION FEATS:

In ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ (1991) #1, Thanos performs an energy projection feat. Becoming God, Thanos snaps his fingers to erase half the population in the Milky Way galaxy. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

Rating energy projection feats require comparisons with man-made or natural phenomena. For example, we use clues about a foe’s durability in other issues or in the story arc, to estimate the energy projection. When Superman incinerated the Doomsday animates with his heat vision, we used Doomsday’s durability feat on Calaton to estimate the energy projection.

HOW TO CALCULATE DURABILITY FEATS:

In ‘Punisher: In The Blood’ (2011) #5, Punisher performs a durability feat. At the end of the battle with Jigsaw, Punisher jumps off a five-story building carrying Jigsaw’s son Henry. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

Durability feats are rated either in terms of stress, strain, Young’s modulus or resistance to thermal radiation. The units used are either psi or Joules/s.

HOW TO CALCULATE INTELLIGENCE FEATS:

In ‘Action Comics’ (2008) #868, Brainiac states an intelligence feat. Brainiac’s Coluan brain can process the knowledge of “over seventy times seven octodecillion beings.”1 AP Photo/DC Comics.

Rating intelligence feats is about calculating processing speed in bytes/s. There are two ways or more. One way is to calculate the data storage capacity in bytes then dividing by the period of time to obtain bytes/s. The second way is to performn energy conversion. We convert power in Joules/s or energy in Joules to bytes/s. We use an energy temperature to byte ratio.
