I already saw a post about this battle but it's locked and I would like to add something to it. I know a lot of people said thanos but what I don't understand is why nobody said that thanos would never go into a battle especially with the hulk without preparing first. He is extremely smart and would plan every little detail out, even a way to escape if he is losing. In the infinity gauntlet, he made everybody think he killed himself at the end but that was just a plan to escape if things went south like they did. With thanos preparing of course he would win, he has defeated some of the most powerful beings in comic book history with the gauntlet and the cosmic cube, he find another powerful object and destroy the hulk in the blink of an eye.

Thanos fires a planet busting energy attack at Hulk, incinerating him outright before he even has a chance to get angry.

In Battle Board threads, unless Prep-time is specified, it's assumed to be a random encounter. As such, the opponents are only allowed to use whatever equipment is considered "standard gear." So, in most Thanos vs. Hulk threads, there's no prep involved, so posters don't bring it up.

Welcome to the Vine. Useful points here, but this is not a battle. In essence though you are right. Even Thanos from Avengers Assemble, which was woefully depowered, was able to mind control the hulk with less than a gesture.

And even without prep, Thanos is just out of Hulk's league in every possible category. Including Strength as Thanos is stronger than base Hulk by quite a lot.

@Lord_Johnathan: True.

@Lord_Johnathan: Than Base-Hulk? What about Hulk's enraged states, is he stronger than them as well?

Than all Hulks. Best Hulk - WB Hulk was able to destroy planet as a side effect of his battle with RSH. 
Weakest version of Thanos - first one, since Thanos only got upgrades since his debut - did it in his first comic Iron Man #54 or #55 with Drax:
Thanos and Drax destroying a planet as a side effect of their battle part 1

Thanos and Drax destroying a planet as a side effect of their battle part 2
  
Plus Thanos won and survive. Hulk died and was resurected. But there is more important thing - this Drax, first Drax was able to destroy star by his strength. Thanos just proved that is stronger than Drax.

Lol destroying a star with a punch truly the physic fails never cease to amaze

@czarny_samael666: Aint gonna lie, that's mad impressive. Imo, i think WBHulk is stronger than Thanos at his first showing(it was only half the planet and i'm guessing there were multiple clashes as well, but still extremely impressive as it was only one of his first feats), but i'm I sure he showed many more impressive feats after this, plus he's probably been gaining in strength as well. Yup, Thanos ftw.

Pretty much. Hulk is not in Thanos league.

@czarny_samael666: I think that even first showing Thanos has better durability than WBH, just not strength (still extremely impressive). As for Drax's star busting feat, that was a very... tactical way of destroying a star. Still star-busting potential, but i wouldn't use it to debate Drax's capabilities.

You know, it takes a lot more strength to do this then crush planet. Planet wouldn't even survive there.

@czarny_samael666: IMO, if WBHulk could somehow get to the core of a Small Sun, i think he has the strength to move it (the core, and tbh he would have to be pushing himself quite a bit). I'm not sure since i don't study the stars, but while the core of our sun is bigger than Jupiter, I think the core of small Sun would be around the same size of Jupiter, maybe bigger. Once again, i'm not sure about that, i'm not even sure about the size of our sun, but from what i remember it's a very small medium sized sun.

Czarny_samael666 is incorrect. 1. Hulk did NOT die when he destroyed the planet with Red She-Hulk. It was explicitly stated that Hulk's wish is what brought everyone back. How'd he make a wish if he was dead? 2. Thanos vs. Drax fight didn't destroy the planet anywhere as easily as Hulk vs. Betty did.

Well, if it was WB Hulk it would be a decent fight to see.

Welcome to the vine btw.

How do you have zero posts O.o

Interesting how for what ever reason everybody assumes a Hulk vs Thanos fight will be decided with a punch out. Thanos has shown to be able to known to knock out characters like Thing and Thor with simple blast, withstand a fully feed Galataus, tank blast from Odin and Silver Surfer, and went toe to toe with Tyrant. Between his intelligence, power, and strength this is an easy fight.

Yes this much is true. Honestly, Characters like Thanos, Odin, Surfer etc, shouldn't have to even throw punches when fighting Planet level Powerbusters due to their power versatility.

But this thread is spite and didn't need to be bumped.

why would thanos need prep against hulk. hulk's not too powerful or too smart, he would however be a good to harass just for fun.

Isn't Hulk not even a planet buster? Thanos with no gear is at least above solar system level.
