Ranking: The 30 Most Powerful Characters In The Marvel Universe

viewcomiconline.com

Thanos was shown to be the biggest menace to the cosmos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, he did literally wipe out half of humanity with a snap of his fingers. However, there are characters in the Marvel Comics universe who are even more powerful than Thanos.
The number of unfamiliar names on this list is maybe the most surprising aspect of it. Even if you’re a big movie buff or just a casual Marvel fan, you’ve probably never heard of a lot of these characters. That’s because many of the more well-known characters are extremely powerful, but only on a planetary scale. Characters with universal or even multiversal power abound in the comics, with some of them essentially in charge of ruling the entire universe.

30. Juggernaut

Cain Marko was raised by his father Kurt after the death of his mother when he was a young child. Dr. Brian Xavier, a problematic colleague of Cain’s father, passed away, and Cain’s father married Xavier’s widow, Sharon. They relocated to Westchester, New York’s Xavier Mansion, which later became the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning. In part because his father preferred him to Cain, Cain bullied his step brother Charles. Cain had no idea that Charles had developed a mutant ability that allowed him to read peoples’ minds, including his.

One of the most physically strong and powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, The Juggernaut is capable of competing with and even outperforming heroes like Thor and Hulk. The Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, which Cyttorak uses to channel his magical energy into his avatar, provides Cain Marko with its power.

29. Hulk

The Hulk can survive in space thanks to his gamma-irradiated physiology. Gamma radiation is produced by the Hulk/Banner in proportion to stress (caused by his own physical effort, anger, or external forces), and it increases as a result. This process results in stronger cellular mass (stronger DNA, which in turn produces stronger/denser organic tissues), negating what would otherwise be a lethal force in order to survive.

The Hulk has unmatched talents for regenerative healing, stamina, and durability thanks to the expansion of his gamma-ray-fueled transformation, which gives him virtually infinite strength. His limitless strength usually depends on his emotions, especially his rage.

28. Doctor Doom

The Roma ancestry of his mother contributes to Doctor Doom’s potential in the mystic arts. He gained these skills from his time spent in Tibet with a covert order of monks. By going back in time and discovering lost Dark Arts, he improved his skills. Doom is one of the most powerful sorcerers and a prospective Sorcerer Supreme, according to Doctor Strange, who once thought of him as a magically skilled but merely mid-level wizard.

He has enough skill and might to compete with sorcerers like Doctor Voodoo, the current Sorcerer Supreme, and Morgan le Fay. He probably knows more about casting spells than Doctor Strange, the former Sorcerer Supreme. He has technologies that perform many of the same tasks, but he values his scientific knowledge more highly. Doctor Doom demonstrated some magical skills in Marvel Avengers Alliance, including Magic Bolt, Ring Imperial, and Steal Essence.

27. Thor

The God of Thunder is without a doubt one of the most powerful traditional superheroes in the Marvel Universe, thanks to his Asgardian physiology and godly birthright, which endow him with a lot of amazing talents. Thor is one of the most physically powerful characters in the Marvel Universe; he is practically indestructible, and his hammer Mjolnir provides him control over the weather as well as unlimited access to vast amounts of destructive energy.

Billy Tan

Thor has been a very popular character in films during the last decade, this is probable due to it’s history and also because he is one of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel Universe. His superpowers are not only linked to his famous hammer, but also to the strength inherited from his father, the God Odin, king of Asgard. However, Thor did not always live as a superhero, he once had to spend some years learning about humility after his father sent him to earth and stripped him of his memory.

26. Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange, another Earthling (and MCU hero), is the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth-616. As a result, he is a master of the mystic arts and one of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful magic users. Strange’s abilities have changed dramatically throughout the years and have been difficult to identify at times, yet at his finest, he can do practically anything. He travels to different realms on a regular basis to fight ancient monsters and cosmic entities.

His real name is Stephen Strange, and his first appearance was in the comic “Strange Tales” in 1963. In his beginnings, Strange was a highly successful neurosurgeon who after suffering an accident and damaging his hands, decided to undertake a healing journey to a place named Kamar-Taj. It was during this journey that he learned about mystic arts and developed his power to access other dimensions and travel the multiverse.

25. Mephisto

While Mephisto isn’t actually the devil, you’d be excused for believing so because he resembles classic representations of Satan and actively encourages such parallels. Mephisto is a powerful extra-dimensional demon that governs over the Hell dimension in reality. Mephisto is invincible in his own world, but even when he wanders outside, he’s a deadly opponent, possessing natural magical abilities, functional immortality, and reality-warping powers capable of creating alternate universes. Naturally, he also snatches people’s souls.

ADVERTISEMENT

Marvel

Knowing exactly about this character’s origins is almost impossible because there are innumerable universes that claim to have the truth. Over the years, this demon has become a notorious villain in the Marvel universe and there are many who make up the list of opponents of this being, including Thor himself. Undoubtedly, one of his main enemies is the well-known superhero Silver Surfer, this occurs because Mephisto envies his pure soul and he has tried to corrupt the Silver Surfer on several occasions.

ADVERTISEMENT

24. Scarlet Witch

Wanda Maximoff, another well-known character, is one of the few Earth-born characters on this list. Wanda was originally shown as a mutant with the capacity to cast probability-altering hexes, but as time passed, her power and impact grew. She is now known as a master of chaos magic and a formidable reality-warper, and she has been revealed as the Nexus Being of Marvel’s main reality, Earth-616, making her a crucial role in the universe’s functioning.

The Scarlet Witch is one of the few superheroes who stands out for having fought both for and against The Avengers. Her training with Agatha Harkness contributed significantly to the mastery of her abilities. Undoubtedly, her most powerful skill is her ability to change the probabilities of the universe, which were narrated in detail in the latest series called “WandaVision” that recounts the events that occurred after Avengers, Endgame.

23. Thanos

Thanos is a mutant Eternal from Titan, a moon of Saturn, with superhuman strength, endurance, and energy manipulation abilities. Thanos’ strength alone makes him at least as tough as Thor, but his drive and cunning make him even tougher. Thanos has conquered the universe several times in the comics by obtaining MacGuffins such as the Infinity Gauntlet and the Heart of the Universe — and when he possesses those, he is near-omnipotent and godly.

ADVERTISEMENT

comicvine.com

Much of Thanos’ fight revolves around obtaining the Infinity Stones, which were necessary to fulfill his plan to save the universe. Thanos’ plan involves wiping millions of people from the universe out of existence, including his own daughter, Gamora, whom he had to sacrifice in order to gain the power that the Soul Stone would grant him. The ambition of this character has made him the main enemy of many superheroes, including Iron Man and Spider-Man.

22. Adam Warlock

Adam Warlock was developed by a team of Earth scientists who were attempting to produce the perfect man. Warlock evolved into a cosmic creature who has been called upon to defend the universe on multiple occasions. Warlock is immortal and he possesses a wide range of cosmic skills, including matter manipulation, cosmic awareness, and the ability to absorb and produce huge amounts of energy. He is also permanently attached to the Soul Gem Infinity Stone.

ADVERTISEMENT

pinterest.com

His first appearance was in 1967 in the comic “Fantastic Four”, since then, this character has been of great relevance for the development of the plot of the infinity wars. His main weakness is Magus, a dark, evil version of himself that can manifest if Adam gets too weak. Another weakness is that Adam’s ability to construct structures is somewhat limited. Although the exact boundaries of his powers are unclear, it’s known that he can’t manipulate matter into making shields or full armors.

21. Silver Surfer

Silver Surfer is a metallic-skin humanoid alien that uses a surfboard-like vehicle to travel through space. He used to be Norrin Radd from the planet Zenn-La until Galactus appeared and intended to consume the planet. To save his home world, he pledged to serve as Galactus’ herald. As the Silver Surfer, Radd scoured the universe for planets for Galactus to devour.

ADVERTISEMENT

Skan

Among his main abilities are the absorption and manipulation of radiation and energy from the four fundamental forces of the universe. He also possesses superhuman strength and endurance and the ability to travel much faster than light; but without a doubt one of his most surprising skill is being able to see and hear at intergalactic distances. His main tool is his surfboard, which he is highly interconnected to, making it seem like an extension of his body, it’s actually made of the same material as his body, making it indestructible.

ADVERTISEMENT

20. Zeus

Marvel uses the pantheon of Greek gods in addition to the Norse gods to create characters. Zeus, the god of the Olympians, is at the apex of the Olympian hierarchy. Zeus is a high-ranking cosmic figure in the Marvel Universe, as one of the Skyfathers – the leaders of their own pantheons. He has a high level of cosmic awareness, is incredibly strong and practically impenetrable, and boasts a wide range of incredible magical talents.

ADVERTISEMENT

fandom.com

His first appearance in the comics was in 1949, in the issue of Venus #6 and since then he became a pivotal figure in the Marvel universe; he even served as a mentor to Thor when he was younger. Shape Shifting is one of his most remarkable skills, he can transform into animals, objects, or other humanoid beings (the latter many times for morally questionable reasons).

19. Hyperion

Earth-616’s Zhib-Ran is Hyperion’s civilian name, and he lived in the microverse. Later, he joined the Squadron Sinister, a group of supervillains. This Hyperion, according to his own narrative, had been chosen to lead a world in the Microverse. He was captured by a strong Galactic Maelstrom after Genis-Vell unintentionally destroyed his planet, but The Grandmaster managed to save him.

ADVERTISEMENT
fandom

Hyperion is an Eternal with numerous superhuman abilities. Hyperion from Earth-13034 claimed that Earth-616’s Sun was less filtered for some reason when he visited. As a result of his powers emanating from the Sun, this made him even stronger. He has superhuman reaction and movement times. While fighting Gladiator, he was reacting and moving at a millisecond rate, but this was the Earth-712 version of him.

ADVERTISEMENT

18. Surtur

Surtur made an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, and while he was first crippled by Thor, the film’s conclusion revealed the character’s actual might. Surtur is a fire giant that reigns over Muspelheim, one of Norse mythology’s Nine Realms. He is Odin’s and Asgard’s mortal enemy, and he is regarded as an equal to the Norse Skyfather. He’s enormous; he’s made of live fire; he’s immortal; and manipulates fire. He destroyed Asgard in the Ragnarok movie.

ADVERTISEMENT

Among his main weapons is the twilight sword which is made of fire and flames and capable of destroying an entire land in one blow. He is also the possessor of the Surtur Crown, which is the main source of his strength and removing it causes his body to vanish. Another of his favorite weapons is the Eternal Flame, a fire that remains always burning and that, combined with the previous two, allows him to achieve devastating power.

17. Odin

While the MCU’s Odin has never been seen to do anything (apart from banishing his heir Thor from Asgard back in the first Thor film), the comics version is a force to be reckoned with. He is the Skyfathers’ leader, and he has a great deal of power and influence throughout the universe. He possesses all of Zeus’ abilities, but is considerably more powerful, and has proven capable of combating cosmic creatures such as Galactus.

ADVERTISEMENT

pinterest.com

Odin can generate and use magical and cosmic energy for a variety of extraordinary purposes, including distorting reality. His immense strength allowed him to deprive Thor of his abilities and turn him mortal, banishing him to Midgard, also known as Planet Earth. His featured weapon is the Gungnir spear, symbolizing his strength and power, an item capable of fiercely shaking anyone hit by it.

ADVERTISEMENT

16. Gorr the God Butcher

The character Gorr is an enigmatic one. Having been born on an unnamed planet and belonging to an unknown extraterrestrial species, he has had a rough life. As Gorr was fighting with another god, he bonded with the elder god Knull’s sword, turning it into the All-Black the Necrosword, a weapon of great power and might.

ADVERTISEMENT

In using this weapon to slay the god, he earned the title of God Butcher and vowed to destroy all the gods of the universe.

ADVERTISEMENT

15. Dormammu

Dormammu is the most powerful character to appear in the MCU thus far. Dormammu is a mythical entity made completely of mystical energy that is incredibly ancient and powerful. As a result, his skill in the mystic arts rivals that of Doctor Strange, despite the fact that Strange has temporarily defeated him in the Doctor Strange film. Dormammu, Lord of the Dark Dimension, is most strong in his home dimension and almost impossible to defeat.

ADVERTISEMENT

fandom.com

Dormammu first appeared in 1964 in the comic “Strange Tales”. A strange anecdote about this super-powerful being occurred when He and Odin decided to play chess to decide the fate of the universe; luckily, the game ended in a tie, thus maintaining the balance between chaos and order. Dormammu Is almost indestructible while being in the Dark Dimension. He only becomes vulnerable when being in places where he cannot fuel his supernatural Faltine flames.

14. Kronos

Kronos is another cosmic abstraction, who was formerly a member of the Eternals, a race of immortal, super-powered beings. Kronos’ body was destroyed in an experiment and his particles scattered around the universe due to a botched lab test. Kronos is now tied to time itself, and he can manipulate and control the flow of time with his universe-spanning abilities.

ADVERTISEMENT

metron.cloud

Kronos is Thanos’ paternal grandfather, although this biological linkage does not make them close. In fact, Thanos is one of Kronos main enemies. Although Kronos’ physical form was destroyed due to an accident, his character occasionally appears as a gigantic transparent humanoid. Another great ability of this being, is that he appears to have complete power over the souls of the dead, even to the point of utilizing them to animate artificial bodies made of inanimate substances.

13: Uatu The Watcher

Uatu is the most renowned member of the Watchers, a mysterious species of beings. The Watchers are thought to be the universe’s earliest living beings, and their job is to observe it without meddling. He has unlimited cosmic energy, the ability to read the minds of all beings in the universe, and the ability to travel anywhere in an instant.

This character debuted in the “Fantastic Four” comic in 1963. He is tasked with keeping a watch on Earth from his residence in the Blue Area of the Moon and he is bound by a statute of non-interference with the Earth and its inhabitants. He one said to Doctor Strange: “Honestly, if I could fix this, if I could punish you instead, I would. But I can’t interfere. You, more than anyone else, should understand that meddling with time and events only leads to more destruction.”

12. Phoenix

The Phoenix Force is a cosmic entity that represents all life in the universe. It has access to nearly infinite cosmic power, is connected to every psychic energy in the omniverse that has ever existed or will ever exist. It acts with the aid of a host in most of its comic book appearances, with Jean Grey being its favorite.

ADVERTISEMENT

fandom.com

The Phoenix’s most essential skill is without a doubt its ability for resurrection. As the personification of life and death, it has near-infinite abilities and can resurrect whomever it desires. It might potentially bring itself and its host back, just like the many times it has done it with Jean Gray. Atmokinesis is another astounding ability the Phoenix has. This power allows it to create black holes and geomagnetic storms. One of the most common depictions of this entity is in the form of a massive firebird.

11. The Celestials

The Celestials are a race of ancient beings that have the appearance of giant armored alien robots. They predate the world and have maintained an interest in mortal matters for reasons only they know about. Their experiments on Earth gave birth to the Eternals, the Deviants, and the mutant gene. Their endless access to cosmic energy makes them nearly indestructible.

ADVERTISEMENT

The Celestials have virtually limitless cosmic and supernatural powers, they are immortal beings who are extremely difficult to damage or kill. Arishem, the world’s judge, is perhaps the most prominent Celestial, he is the creator of the first Sun, which brought light to the universe. Other notable Celestials are “Tiamut” who can inflict fear into Galactus himself, “Gamiel the Manipulator” and “Exitar the Executioner”.

ADVERTISEMENT

10. Galactus

Galactus is one of the most well-known Marvel villains in history, even if he isn’t exactly wicked. He’s a cosmic abstract who must consume planets to maintain the cosmos in balance. He predates the current universe and is more powerful than any Celestial because he has unrestricted access to the Power Cosmic, the energy source that connects everything in existence.

ADVERTISEMENT
fandom.com

This character originally appeared in one of the “Fantastic Four” comic books in 1964. Even though he possesses enormous strength and power on his own, he sometimes employs assistance weaponry such as a robot known as the Punisher or a little device known as the Ultimate Nullifier, with which Galactus is able to wipe from existence anything he wishes.

9. Franklin Richards

Franklin was always destined for great things as the mutant son of Fantastic Four members Reed Richards and Sue Storm Richards, but few could have imagined that he would grow up to be one of the multiverse’s most powerful beings. He has proven the capacity to repair a fractured reality and create entirely new universes since he was a child.

ADVERTISEMENT
fandom.com

A worth mentioning weakness of this character include how he manages his powers, which can go low after usage. When he uses his skills, he must be cautious and store something in case he needs it later. There is one exception to this, and that is when Franklin is on Krakoa, a mutant-only island where he spends his powers considerably more slowly, thus preventing him from running out quickly.

ADVERTISEMENT

8. Eternity & Infinity

Eternity and Infinity are two additional inseparable cosmic concepts that embrace all that occurs in the cosmos. These are the literal conceptions of reality and time, and they have limitless power in this space-time continuum. They have the incredible capacity to manipulate and control anything that exists, which makes them incredibly powerful. It is one of the primordial antagonistic duos.

ADVERTISEMENT
comicvine.com

Eternity (together with Infinity) appeared when the universe was established and instantly inherited the collective consciousness of all living creatures in the Universe. Eventually, Eternity ended up giving rise to various “children,” or notions that evolved into separate, self-contained entities, known as Empathy, Eulogy, Expediency, Entropy, Epiphany, Enmity, and Eon.

ADVERTISEMENT

7. Oblivion

Oblivion is a cosmic abstract that is closely related to Death, Eternity, and Infinity, although there is evidence that it’s more powerful than them all. The manifestation of nothingness — the void — is oblivion. It existed before the multiverse and will continue to exist after it has died. Its greatest wish is to see the end of all things.

ADVERTISEMENT

fandom.com

Two of the main known avatars of Oblivion are the King of Chaos and Knull, both born from the abyss before the beginning of the universe itself. The King of Chaos would become known as Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and Knull would create the symbiotes and other arcane monsters from living darkness.

ADVERTISEMENT

6. Molecule Man

Molecule Man was a scientist called Owen Reece who was bestowed with molecular manipulation abilities after a lab accident. Molecule man can achieve anything because everything is formed of molecules, and he has complete control over all matter and energy on the planet. He’s feared by some cosmic creatures, and for good reason: he is known to be incredibly unpredictable.

ADVERTISEMENT

fandom.com

His initial appearance was in an edition of the “Fantastic Four” comic in 1964. The accident that caused his transformation occurred while Reece was working at an Acme Atomic Corp facility. He got distracted and the machine he was manipulating struck him with radiation. His main weakness is him not being able to have total control over organic-type molecules. Furthermore, he has certain issues with technology, circuits, and machines in general.

5. The Living Tribunal

The Living Tribunal is shown as a colossal golden humanoid with three faces, each pointing in a different direction, and is tasked with serving as the multiverse’s supreme adjudicator. He passes judgment on other beings in matters of tremendous importance in order to maintain the balance. His cosmic powers are boundless, and he has judged beings as strong as Eternity.

ADVERTISEMENT

thedirect.com

His first appearance in comics was in the 1967 issue of “Strange Tales.” The balance that this entity must ensure can range from balancing that one universe is not consuming more energy than another or even that some forces of good are proportionate to those from evil. This entity has an unquestionable authority and can be seen acting as a judge or arbitrator of other beings of equal or greater power, such is the case of Eternity or Infinity that were subject to judgment by The Living Tribunal.

ADVERTISEMENT

4. The Beyonder

The Marvel comic character of the Beyonder is quite intriguing. He comes from his own reality outside of the multiverse itself, where he is completely omnipotent and capable of doing anything. In the 1980s twelve-issue comic series “Secret Wars,” the figure established a Battleworld in which he pitted Earth’s heroes and villains against each other for his own twisted enjoyment.

ADVERTISEMENT

comicvine.com

This character has been mostly seen depicted as a Caucasian human with curly black hair. His origins date back to a failed experiment caused by scientist Owen Reece that caused him to transform into Molecule Man. It was around that time that The Beyonder began to have certain curiosities about human behavior, specifically about how they experienced the sensation of desire, it was this curiosity that led him to develop the events narrated in Secret Wars I and Secret Wars II.

ADVERTISEMENT

3. First Firmament

The First Firmament is a being created at the same time as the One-Above-All and One-Below-All, but in his loneliness, he created life, known as Celestials/Aspirants. He’s the driving force behind the One-Above-All and One-Below-All, both of whom have power equivalent to or nearly equal to each other. He’s virtually omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent, only surpassed by the One-Above-All.

ADVERTISEMENT

pinterest.com

This character is usually depicted as a bright blue luminous entity with a skeletal appearance with a large head. The creation of the Celestials (multi-colored ones) and the Aspirants (dark ones) marked the beginning of the end for The Firmament. These two groups had opposing ideas that ended up causing a war that led to the destruction of the First Firmament. This event triggered the creation of hundreds of universes altogether known as the Multiverse.

ADVERTISEMENT

2. The One Below All

The One Below All is a newer figure that first appeared back in 2018. He is the malevolent counterpart to the One Above All, who will be mentioned next. It is the embodiment of all hate and devastation in the multiverse, and despite the fact that it has no thought of its own, it strives to become all there is.

ADVERTISEMENT

pinterest.com / fandom.com

It is understandable that even the most powerful entity and creator of worlds like “The One Above All” has its own nemesis; it’s a common rule that the universe is only balanced through Yin and Yan. The One Below All seems to fulfill this function; in his own words, “I howl through many mouths. I break with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I have all the power you give me, and my weapon is hate.”

Before We Reveal No. 1, Here Are Three Honorable Mentions:

Captain Marvel

The Fantastic Four defeated a Kree Sentry on Earth, and as a result, Ronan the Accuser was also vanquished. The Kree were astounded by these happenings and sent a spacecraft to observe Earth and learn about its achievements in space and missile technology.

ADVERTISEMENT
fictionhorizon

The Phoenix Force most recently brought back the original Captain Marvel. This new Dark Marvel, who resembled Phoenix more than Mar-Vell, wanted to eliminate Hala and everyone who stood in his way. Mar-Vell’s conscience broke free of the Phoenix’s hold in his dying moments, and he gave his life to avert calamity. Captain Marvel can sometimes defeat opponents who are much stronger than himself thanks to his superhuman strength, cosmic energy projection, flight, and semi-omniscience.

ADVERTISEMENT

Onslaught

Professor Charles Xavier, the telepathic creator of the X-Men, and the mutant known as Magneto, Master of Magnetism, combined their mutant powers to create Onslaught, a sentient psionic being. Magneto removed the Adamantium from Wolverine’s skeleton during a fight between the X-Men and Magneto’s Acolytes.

His abilities included the capacity to cause delusions, momentary paralysis of the mind or body, loss of particular memories, or complete amnesia. Additionally, he had the ability to sense mutants nearby and send mind-numbing mental bolts. Additionally, both natural and artificial magnetic fields could be shaped and controlled by Onslaught. He can also project all kinds of electromagnetic radiation.

ADVERTISEMENT

Abraxas

The antithesis of Eternity and the personification of destruction is Abraxas. Galactus kept him under control by consuming planets to save the energies needed to imprison him. Abraxas was released soon after the events of Galactus: The Devourer and set out right away to wipe out not only Earth-616 but all other parallel universes. The one item that could possibly stop him, the Ultimate Nullifier, was needed even though he was perfectly capable of collapsing universes by distorting the walls of spatial space.

ADVERTISEMENT
pinterest

Because of his nearly infinite cosmic power, Abraxas was able to travel between dimensions at will, reorganize matter, and exert massive energy manipulations. Abraxas has displayed tremendous strength. Galactus has been beaten by him many times in the past, and he has also obliterated reality’s planes. He has so immense strength that he can destroy entire galaxies in a single blow. Abraxas is also quite knowledgeable.

ADVERTISEMENT

1. The One Above All

The One Above All is the closest approach to God. It is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, and it created the universe and everything in it, including the Beyonders and, presumably, the One Below All. He appeared in both masculine and female forms but is most typically depicted to resemble Jack Kirby, the co-creator of numerous Marvel characters alongside Stan Lee.

ADVERTISEMENT

comicvine.com

Just as there are courts for legal disputes on Earth, the galaxy has its own tribunal, an entity called The Living Tribunal. The One Above All is, in fact, The Living Tribunal’s highest judge. There haven’t been many appearances of this character since it is known that he rarely intervenes in the events that have occurred in the MCU. It is known, however, that he possesses a power both unlimited and immeasurable, to the point of allowing the creation of an entire universe.

More Honorable Mentions:

Apocalypse

The First Dynasty of Egypt in 3000 BC is when the Apocalypse myth first began. In the settlement of Akkaba, where he was born gray-skinned (although Apocalypse’s skin tone is occasionally depicted as flesh-colored or dark-skinned), blue-lipped, and with natural facial markings, he was abandoned as an infant but was later found by a group of desert nomads known as the Sandstormers. Their leader, Baal, recognized the child’s potential for power and raised him as his own, naming him En Sabah Nur.

Apocalypse, one of the first mutants, is a terrible tyrant who has long been an enemy of the X-Men and is also thousands of years old. Only the strongest (mutant or superhuman) shall live, according to Apocalypse. His body is a blend of organic materials and potent celestial technology, enhancing the godlike levels of his shapeshifting and other abilities.

ADVERTISEMENT

Destroyer

Although it was initially introduced as just a weapon that Odin had kept on Earth, the Destroyer was originally designed by Odin as the weapon of choice to be used against the Fourth Host of Celestials. The massive structure is built of a substance that Odin enchanted to be even more powerful than Uru.

ADVERTISEMENT

In order to locate, combat, and eliminate the new Thor, who has been wielding Mjolnir for some time, Odin most recently allowed the Destroyer to be possessed by the essence of his brother Bor. The Destroyer was shown carrying Mjolnir, but it was later discovered that Bor was, in fact, unworthy and that the object the Destroyer was holding was simply another object; it wasn’t subject to the same worthy enchantment as a real being would be. Thor will be battling the Destroyer with the aid of a little army that Prince Odinson and his stepmother assembled.

Impossible Man

Impossible Man is a cunning shape-shifter from the planet Popup who has total control over both his molecular makeup and his capacity to bend reality. The molecules in The Impossible Man’s body can be rearranged into any shape he wants at command. Depending on the object or living being he imitates, he may be able to mimic some of its talents and functions.

ADVERTISEMENT
pinterest

He can transform into a functioning electric fan, water hose, or jet engine, for instance (although they empower these objects by their own molecular energies rather than by electricity, water, or jet fuel). However, he can only mimic the appearance of an item, like Thor’s enchanted Uru hammer, Captain America’s vibranium-adamantium shield, or the Silver Surfer’s cosmic surfboard, and not its unique characteristics.

ADVERTISEMENT

Morg

Morg participated with a rebel army on his native planet that was fighting their Queen. He always wanted to be of service to the powerful. The size of the queen’s army put an end to his insurrection. He was taken prisoner, and the queen offered him and the remaining survivors one more opportunity to serve her. Morg abandoned his companions and sided with the queen because he was lured to the strong. He was then appointed an executioner, and his first responsibility was to put his old allies to death, which he did without hesitation.

ADVERTISEMENT
fandom

Galactus then came toward his world. Morg displayed a respectful but unafraid resistance in the face of the enormous monster instead of showing fear. Galactus chose to appoint this ruthless and remorseless specimen as his newest herald after being impressed by Morg’s behavior and wary after losing countless heralds to bouts of conscience.

ADVERTISEMENT

Tyrant

Galactus created Tyrant ages ago, but their divergent personalities tore them apart, and Tyrant grew envious of his maker. Galactus is a hermit who is trying to survive since he is aware that if he gorges on the universe, he will soon starve to death. Tyrant, on the other hand, simply cherished brutal conflict after bloody conflict, which he used as fuel for any conquest.

ADVERTISEMENT
comicbookmovie

Tyrant’s creator Galactus depowered and lost him in his previous form, which was larger and nearly as powerful as Galactus. As a result, Tyrant was reduced to a weaker current state. When Tyrant was last seen, he absorbed power from planetary biospheres, and each planet Galactus destroyed made Tyrant weaker.

Gladiator

Kallark was once a bright young cadet fighter of a proud bloodline back on his home planet Strontia before he became the Preator of the Imperial Guard known as Gladiator who had been educated under Deathbird, Lilandra’s evil sister. A strong species that places duty and honor above all else and has vowed allegiance to the Shi’Ar monarchy after being freed from the Wraith Plague by the former Emperor.

Runner

The Runner (Gilpetperdon), who was born more than 5 billion years ago, is the final member of his unnamed civilization. The Runner’s past, his race’s name, his culture, and how he came to be an Elder Of The Universe are all mostly unknown. All that is known about him is that he ingested the power primal, which is the Big Bang’s leftover energy, and that, at some point during his eons-old existence, he encountered and befriended the Elders of the Universe. Running freely to far locations in the universe was his pleasure.

Proteus confronted the X-Men members Phoenix, Madrox, the Multiple Man, and Polaris who were on Muir Island at the time after escaping imprisonment; although easily defeating Polaris and the Multiple Man, Phoenix almost killed him.

One of the Tyannan spacecraft was hit by a meteor and sent onto the volcanic planet of Arthros long ago in the Negative Zone when the Tyannans planted life spores on lifeless planets. The crew expelled spores before dying. One of the spores turned into an insect-like monster several years later. He had a mutation that gave him a very high IQ.

He utilized a unique helmet to integrate all the knowledge of the cutting-edge Tyannan technology into himself after discovering the wreckage of a Tyannan spacecraft. He gained a “Cosmic Control Rod” and bodily armaments as a result, becoming stronger and more intelligent. The beast was given the name Annihilus. He went out to exterminate anything that threatened his existence and intended to conquer or destroy every planet close to Arthros. Other creatures also emerged from the spores, but Annihilus ruled over them with the help of his strength.

Terminus

Terminus is an extraordinarily strong being. At first, it was even claimed that his strength rivaled that of the powerful Galactus. It will take some time to determine if this is an accurate comparison because Terminus has never quite elicited or performed on the same level as the globe devourer. However, teams of Avengers and X-Men were required to overcome Terminus because of his immeasurable might.

Since Terminus’ exterior shell is made of an organic metallic material and has the ability to repair itself, even if harm were to be done onto the outside layer, it would seek to quickly heal and restore itself. This makes Terminus incredibly resilient. He is fully capable of surviving in space, and the procedure of entering a planet’s atmosphere, which is fraught with danger, is of little concern.

Sentry

A very strong being from Earth named Sentry. He has class 100 strength and the ability to fly quickly. Additionally, he possesses incredibly strong telepathic abilities that dwarf those of Professor Xavier, who was thought to be the planet’s strongest telepath. He once erased his existence from everyone’s memory on earth. It is said that he even managed to slow down the all-knowing Galactus, which is practically unimaginable.

Even dead things can be revived by him. Ironman asserts that he lacks any physical deficiencies. Additionally, he has energy that is potent enough to calm down the angry Hulk. He has such keen hearing that, when in New York, he can hear the heartbeat of a butterfly in Africa. He was named the planet’s toughest hero and boasted the strength of a million bursting suns.

Quasar

Wendell Vaughn is a cosmically powered superhero known as Quasar and a former agent of SHIELD. Quasar, who has Quantum Bands that can manipulate energy, was chosen by Eon to take Captain Marvel’s place as Protector of the Universe. He has served as a valuable member of the Avengers and a friend to the Guardians of the Galaxy. He formerly oversaw Project PEGASUS, served as the Avatar of Infinity, and was the leader of the teams Starmasters and Annihilators, both of which were short-lived.

High Evolutionary

One of the smartest people on Earth, the High Evolutionary is incredibly versed not only in the biological and medical domains, but also in the technological ones. He not only improved his intelligence after evolving his brain, but he also gained access to some of the extrasensory abilities of the brain, including telepathy, telekinesis, and a limited sort of cosmic awareness. A danger sense and some clairvoyance/precognition are among his other enhanced senses.

The High Evolutionary evolved into his highly developed cybernetic exoskeleton as a part of his process of development. He is incredibly resistant to attack, force fields, size changes, levitation, and flight because of the armor. He gains a lot of strength from the armor, and the hands of the armor can release strong blasts.

Black Bolt

Agon, the head of the ruling Council of Genetics, and Rynda, the director of the Prenatal Care Center, two of Attilan’s greatest geneticists, gave birth to Black Bolt as Blackagar Boltagon. Bolt was exposed to the mutagenic Terrigen Mists while still an embryo, and as a result, he was born with unusual abilities that even exceeded those of the Inhumans.

The capacity to control free floating electrons is Black Bolt’s main superpower. His brain’s speech center has a special organic system that can produce an unidentified particle that interacts with the electrons he absorbs to produce specific events under his mental control.

Adversary

The Adversary wants to end this universe and create a brand-new one that would be under his complete power. Due to his energetic nature and lack of a physical body, magic is required to vanquish him. However, he has also demonstrated a weakness to cold iron, steel, and adamantium.

Adversary was known to the Cheyenne Nation, and their shaman, Naze, frequently engaged in combat with him. He is capable of taking any form he likes. Magic can be used to defeat them, but most forms of physical force won’t work. Iron, steel, and adamantium are all weak points for him.

Ymir

As the strongest Frost Giant, Ymir is the leader of the Frost Giants. He and his brothers live in Asgard’s Niflheim, where he governs. He is so old that he predates all of the gods. Surtur is the only other entity in Norse cosmology older than him.

Ymir is one of the most potent beings ever discovered as a result. He possesses all the same skills as other frost giants, but much more so. He is far larger than the other frost giants, stronger, and more harm resistant than even the thunder god Thor. His body has the ability to produce a powerful cold. He has the ability to freeze almost everything. Ymir is eternal and resistant to the effects of time because she is an elemental. Even if his body is destroyed completely, he can reconstruct it psychologically and even if it is shattered.

Vulcan

Vulcan is an omega level mutant. As each of his brothers, Cyclops and Havok, can absorb specific types of energies and rechannel those energies from their bodies, Vulcan possesses abilities that are comparable to those of his siblings. His brothers are known to be immune to one another’s powers, yet they appear to be vulnerable to Vulcan’s (he manages to hurt Cyclops with no apparent trouble). This might be a result of Vulcan’s extraordinarily high level of power or his capacity for energy control.

ADVERTISEMENT

With the use of his talents, Vulcan can fly, float, and travel between stars. Vulcan had the ability to concentrate his energy into force fields and various forms. By lifting and moving objects, the effect of his energy creations may be exploited to mimic telekinesis. Even people can appear as his energy constructions.

Sise-Neg

One of the rare characters in the Marvel Universe who is regarded as a nexus-being is Sise-Neg. Nexus creatures were characterized as “rare individual entities with the potential to change probabilities and consequently the future” by Uatu the Watcher. In the Marvel Universe, Sise-Neg is the only person who has so far shown that she is capable of traveling through time and expelling magical energy from other beings.

Due to Sise-Neg’s extraordinary abilities, he was able to forcibly absorb magical energy from universes that were wholly separate from the one in which he lived. This was demonstrated when, when Strange and Mordo were engaged in combat in a totally different universe, he absorbed magical energy from both of them.

Champion

The Power Primordial, the ancient forces released at and from the creation of the cosmos, enhances and fuels the body of the Champion. The champion has superhuman skills that are significantly superior to those of most superhuman and even cosmically powered beings thanks to the Power Primordial.

Unlike other Elders of the Universe, Champion made the decision to focus his powerful energies inside of himself. His energy makes his body the ideal combat machine by enhancing his strength, speed, agility, and endurance. He can neither die nor be killed by any traditional means because of the energy in his body that makes him everlasting. Even “ordinary” immortals cannot compare to Champion’s level of immortality.

Skaar

Skaar’s power derives from his emotions, just like his father the Hulk. Skaar probably has the capacity for extremely high levels of physical strength because he is the son of the man who calls himself “the strongest there is.” Skaar possesses nearly inexhaustible strength given that he uses the Old Power and Gamma blood (like the Hulk).

He can use the Old Power to increase his strength even more. He once used a city’s 100 trillion tons of kinetic energy to battle the Hulk, and he effortlessly launched Juggernaut into space on another occasion. Skaar has been observed punching creatures from great distances, destroying the Sakaar dragons, toppling tanks, and defeating Ben Grimm with ease. He can use the Old Power to amplify limits. Skaar has tremendous leg strength as well, which enables him to make long leaps.

Hercules

Hercules was one of Zeus’ six Olympian sons and was destined to become both the Gods’ and humanity’s rescuer. Hercules, also known as the Prince of Power, is one of the world’s strongest beings, an Olympian God, and a contemporary superhero whose prowess is known all over the world. He has defended the globe as a champion of humanity since ancient times, and he still does it today, most commonly as a member of the Avengers.

Hercules was naturally born a half-god because of his biological mother, Alcmena, and a half-human because of his biological father, Zeus, the king of the Olympian gods. His stepmother, Hera, queen of the Olympian gods, breastfed him as a child, nurturing him with her holy milk, which greatly enhanced his already godlike physiology.

Grandmaster

One of the oldest entities ever is a strange being known only as The Grandmaster. He enjoys playing board games and other games of a similar nature. He likes to play games like that, like getting two superhero teams to fight it out to the death. He once had the Mind Gem, which made him almost unstoppable at the moment, but Thanos stole it from him.

The Grandmaster has broad knowledge in all branches of science thanks to his superior intelligence. But he spends most of his time plotting and playing games, using weaker creatures as pawns. Despite the fact that he detests physical conflict in and of itself, he is a powerful opponent despite having no combat skills.
