Who Is The Strongest Superhero?

Who is the Strongest Superhero Ever?

This question has been haunting us for a long time. And, to be honest, it will probably continue to do so. The reason for this is simple: there are no statistical ways to form an answer to this question, so everything is mostly opinion-based and highly subjective. We all know how well that goes down on the Internet. Who is the strongest superhero? Subjectively, plenty of people.

Who Is The Strongest Superhero?

But the most important aspect most of us seem to be eluding is that there is no way to properly analyze all of the known superheroes and consider it fair to compare them. When we ask “who is the strongest superhero,” this can refer to so many things. Which one is most likely to outlive them all? Who has the most impressive set of skills? Who has the biggest physical strength?

With all of these factors being taken into consideration, we’ve tried to line up a few possible contenders.

Superman

He’s not only DC’s biggest icon, but he is also one of the first picks for people who wish to proclaim a superhero as the ultimate strongest. And, truth be told, they have all the reasons to. Any non-magical attack is essentially useless against him, he is able to fly to space and stop meteorites and crashing rockets, and his only weakness is an incredibly rare alien rock.

Every skill that Superman possesses is nothing short of a superlative, just like his name suggests. He’s a good blend of resistance, of physical strength, of speed, and the strength of will necessary to give every hero a boost.

Deadpool

Now we’re starting to pick things a little bit apart. Can he fly? Absolutely not. Can he lift planes with his bare hands? Of course not. But he has one particular skill that he’s so good at, he might just be the “cockroach” to survive the apocalypse when it wipes out all of the other heroes.

The thing with Deadpool is that no matter how many times Superman would turn him to ashes with his laser eyes or punch him into oblivion, Deadpool would always come back. At this point, he’s essentially immortal so, one way or another, he will always be the winner of a battle.

Hulk

Here’s another aspect, one which refers to strength a lot more literally: physical force. Many people say that the resolution to Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 should be Hulk punching Thanos to death. As funny as it sounds, that’s actually what should properly happen!

Hulk is the only realistically undefeatable member on the Avengers team and he has a physical strength that can go on par with godly forces, as shown by his confrontations with those of the likes of Thor and Loki.

Doctor Strange

Stephen Strange makes me bring up another aspect to this mosaic of a question: the supernatural. Some superheroes rely on their alien attributes, some on mutations, some on their mystic powers. Considered to be the “most powerful human on Earth,” the Sorcerer Supreme is basically a hardcore Harry Potter with martial arts training.

With all these things considered, who’s to know what the real limitations of amulets, runes, and ancient powers are? Throughout the history of comics and their stories, superheroes from different environments have often found some real obstacles in magic.

Jean Grey

Last but not least, there’s another underside to this discussion. What of the mental abilities? Sure, there’s strength in being able to punch a plane into Mars, but people often say that it’s the mental scars that heal the slowest.

As far as psychic abilities go, Jean Grey is the most powerful of all curtsy of the array of skills provided by the Phoenix. She can do everything from telekinesis, telepathy, mind control, force barriers, and many other things. What good would Superman be if he was mind controlled into jumping in a barrel of kryptonite?

As a conclusion, it’s hard to determine one winner. Traditionally, Superman would be the best pick because he manages to balance really well the skills necessary to an indestructible hero. But his life would really be tough if he were to ever go on par with one of these other aforementioned characters.

How about we just make them all team up to defend us and call it a day?

5 Baseball Players who Could have Doubled as Stuntmen

Baseball gets a bad rap because it’s no longer the “cool” sport to root for, because it’s a sophisticated sport that doesn’t involve smashing someone else’s face in. What’s more, it doesn’t have masculine positions to play, like the “tight end.”

But what people don’t take into account is that baseball players have to be just as in shape as any other athlete, and in some cases, they’re more conditioned than anyone else. In fact, we want to see those beefy football players try to pull off some of these stunts… [Read more…]

The Lethalist Warrior

Spike TV has a show entitled the Deadliest Warrior, in which they essentially play the game of “Who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman?” with high tech computers, experts in the field of blustering and puffery, and actors pretending to be some of the greatest fighters in history. I normally watch the show simply for the staged fights at the end, which I always get a kick out of (after all, where else are you going to see a knight in shining armor fighting a pirate?) But I also decided that, since the show is essentially full of crap (in what universe do Soviet Special Forces defeat Green Berets? Have they never even seen an action movie?) I could do it too. So, here is the pilot episode of the Lethalist Warrior, the show where we decide who would win a fight between two action figures. It’s time to decide

The Evolution of the Superhero Movie

We are currently living in the age of the superhero movie, a financially-friendly genre that is at present flying its way around cinema screens on what is noticeably becoming a regular basis. With the earth-shattering advances in special effects over the past couple of decades, it’s becoming increasingly easy for super-powered vigilantes to make the transition from the pages of a comic book to being projected on the silver screen, which has resulted in a recent explosion of cinematic offerings from the superhero genre. Just this year we’ve already feasted on Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor” and Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class,” and last Friday (June 17) we were presented with Martin Campbell’s “Green Lantern,” which shall be followed by Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” released July 22 in the US. It seems you can’t look at your local cinema listings without seeing someone in a cape or a mask or with their skin a funny colour (no racism intended). But what is the history of this genre? Where did it all begin? When did it really become popular? And what is with our current fascination with crime-fighters who have awesome, otherworldly powers?

Top 13 Scariest Curses Ever

Winchester Mystery House

Sarah Winchester, the widow of the gun magnate William Wirt Winchester sure seems to be surrounded by a spooky curse. After her husband’s death in 1881, Sarah began construction on what is popularly known as the Winchester Mystery House. Sarah was successfully convinced by a psychic that the house was haunted by all the people who had been killed by her husband’s guns!

So Sarah got to work. She had staircases built in the house that led to nowhere, doors to concrete walls, and many other such absurdities. Why? To confuse the ghosts!

The House built is a huge sprawling thing with 160 rooms which include 40 bedrooms! It is said that Sarah believed that if she kept building she could evade death which eventually came for her in 1922.

The end result of her curse? A delightfully strange house you can visit in San Jose, California.
