erm Why?

I do not know much about time trapper apart from his appearence in Final Crisis he did not look powerful enough to as galactus? Does he have other showings that could rival Galactus being able to wipe 3 solar system with a blast?

Galactus

@Killemall: Well, Pre-Crisis survived the Crisis (COIE), so I assume PC feats would count for him, and he has some crazy feats.

@justleader: I don't know. If he's fully fed, he's pretty damn powerful.

galactus

It could quite possibly go either way imo.

I'm not a expert on either but I'm pretty sure

time trapper >>>> Galactus

Time trapper createing the pocket universe >>>>> destroying 3 solar systems.

How does that help him defeat Galactus??

@LubeMan: Never said it would defeat Galactus but Creating a pocket universe is a great feat, and take's excellent energy manipulation.

Cool thanks, although from the battle point of view still not sufficient feat i would say but . I mean we have seen Franklin Richard (kid franklin) create a pocket universe, a full fledge universe, and with help of Manthing a nexus to all realities and he was still on par with Celestial/ Galactus.

Time Trapper can't be destroyed. Based on what I'm reading, if destroying 3 Solar Systems is Galactus' top feat, that's not going to be enough to scratch Time Trapper. Trapper's pocket universe survived the COIE, which killed multiple universes. To be fair, I'm not sure Trapper can do much to harm Galactus either.

no it's not his top feat, he destroyed 3 solar systems while weakened.

So, is it possible to get some panel feats on Time Tapper. I know about Galactus. And isn't Time Tapper actually Prime from the future???

Galactus best feat is nearly destroying the universe / multiverse (depend on who you trust, Thor and Silversurfer or Obvilion) as a side effect of his battle against The Other and Scarier.

Not too familiar with COIE, but Galactus sure cant match being able to wipe multiple universes with a blast, that much i admit, although i seriously question if thats how powerful time trapper durability is. Isnt he supposed to be LOSH villian, if a multiversal busting blast cant do much against him, not sure what LOSH would have done (that being say its an assumption i am making i have not read anything on time trapper, which i openly admit)

@killemall: The Trappers powers are hard to pin point. I mean Mon-el once drove him back with good old fashioned fisticuffs. Which would never, ever work on Galactus. But...it can be argued the Trapper let that happen, because after any "defeat", he simply goes to the "end of time" (where only he exist) and re-boots everything. The seven reboots the Legion has had?...he remembers all of them, and knows of all the reboots to come. Theoretically, he could trap Galactus in the same moment in time, and have Big G on an endless loop at the same moment in time. (Though I'm sure some would argue Galactus would be able to resist that.) The Legion never defeats the Time Trapper. Much the same way, I understand the FF or The Avengers never defeats Galactus. As for Trapper being Superboy Prime (and I was on a comics hiatus when that took place) My understanding is that he is...and he isn't. It depends on which reality of the DCU we're talking about. I'm not sure where the Trapper stands on the list of "Powerful Cosmic beings" as his power set is hard to grasp, but I do think he's vastly under-rated. (maybe because he's so difficult to grasp) But when you have an event wiping out countless universes, and Trapper is unaffected, that's pretty impressive. I think that shows he's at least as powerful as the COIE Anti-Monitor. I mean look at the out take above "Restarting Time" That's mind-boggling to me.

Galactus definitely has much more raw energy and destructive power. Time Trappers powers are not physically destructive, the best he can do to someone physically is de-age them. This could be damaging to Galactus, but it also might not be at all Does Galactus's Age parrallel how much energy he needs? Meaning, the older he gets, the more energy he needs. If you age Galactus a month right after a meal, will Galactus need to feed again ( or however long between meals Galactus usually takes ).

I highly doubt Time trapper can do anything to Galactus that would harm him. Since Trapper cannot do anything beyond deaging someone in the present time, he won't stand a chance against Galactus's raw energy output, matter manipulation or a host of other things he can do.

Tough one to call. TT could freeze G in time or simply deage him until he was his former universe self. he could also alter history in such a way that Galen didn't survive that universe. It comes down to a question of whether G can prevent that. SS has tome manip feats and one would assume the being who gives him his power is capable of much greater of the same therefore equalling TT. In a straight out fight with energy powers etc I dont see TT matching Galactus. he might be able to shield himself with a tachion shield ( basically freezing G's blasts in time) but he really has no other way to attack

#27 Posted by Manwhohaseverything (2049 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe it's a matter of perception/bias. But to me, "restarting time" on a cosmic level is more impressive than anything I've seen Galactus doing. Trapper also created a universe. (granted, one in which Krypton and earth existed so that the LSH would still have their "origin story".) And to me "Creating anything > Destroying that same thing."
