A near-omnipotent being vs. another near-omnipotent being.  This should be a hard one.  Please provide some reasons since their powers are pretty similar.

Yes.  Since you made it seem like DS is absolutely nothing for Cthulhu.  Thought  i'd up the ante a little for him.  lol !

@WindCloud: Well.....Tribunal should win this rather easily actually.

Although Cthulhu can create and destroy universes,and even this is somewhat limited,he can't manipulate universes.While the Living Tribunal can manipulate multiple universes,along with destroying/creating.

He only has that power in the MU. If this incarnation of Cthulhu is the MU one than the LT should win.

 

The H.P lovecraft version is pretty damn powerful and if the battle is in a nuetral realm he could have some problems.

 

The LT stomps the animated JLU version.

Guys Cthulhu is one of the most over-rated characters from on Vine. Cthulhu from original Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and expanded Cthulhu Mythos (work from other writers and his guest appearances in videos games) is no where near the universal level not to mention near-omnipotent. The article about him here on Vine has to many flaws and i needs to be rewritten. i already noted mods about false info that is presenet in article.

 

For example article states that:

- Cthulhu is omniversal based on his guest appearances in video games and rpg games like D&D. going by same logic it would mean that Darth Vader (guest in Soul Calibur), Kratos (guest in Mortal Kombat) are also omniversals not to mention Scorpion from Mortal Komabt who had many guest appearances...

- he completly mastered science, magic and tech based on the fact that in RPG Call Of Cthulhu he is stated to know all the spells from that game (not from whole omniverse)

 

I can go on and on with saying what's false, but let us see how powerful Cthulhu really is.

 

In story Call of Cthulhu he was almost killed with steam-ship slashing his head. he needed to return to R'lyeh to regenerate - so there it goes being able to regenerate faster than wound is made

 

Even in Dungeons and Dragons he is only a minor monster.

 

His so called immortality is based on the existance of city R'lyeh - this city is kinda like his Lazarus Pit

 

And massive armies from many multiverses, age in vigintillions of years, power beyound mortal comprehension, galactus level of power ... That's all bull

 

Cthulhu at his most powerfull (count original and additional work) is only a planet ruiner. He is unable to destroy a planet not even close nor does have any resources to acomplish such feat. Superman holds power beyound Cthulhu's comprehension.

 

Fact is that i'm a great fan of Lovecract Mythos, and i do have great knowledge about it. And Lovecraft Mythos is shown in his most powerful in Demonbane verse (outclasses even interpretation in Marvel comics) since Nyarlathothep can do time mannipulation on multiversal scale, but there Cthulhu isn't even mentioned. And still  Demonbane verse < Living Tribunal (due to powerscaling but Elder God Demonbane mecha has some of the greatest and certanly most borken feats in all of the fiction).

 

Living Tribunal >>>>>>>>>>>... (goes infinetly) than Cthulhu

 

Darkseid >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>. Cthulhu

 

Cthulhu's most dangerous ability is to make people go insane when they look at him (due to his abominating look) but humans in Lovecraft Mythos are inferior in every term to humans from real world so that should be toned with above also

It's actually not stated the boat nearly killed him, or ever hurt him at all. Also in the story the stars were still poisonous to him and his offspring, so his physical form would be severely weakened, otherwise he wouldn't need to go back to "sleep" in his chamber(which protects him from the stars in our galaxy). it is to my understanding that once a year his city (or part of it) rises up from the ocean simply to psychically influence mortals. If you read one of the versions of the necronomicron Chthulhu is quite a beast. it documents multi-dimensional/universal travel. and at least the ability to bust a galaxy at full power "when the stars are right". with that said still not on the level of LT, but a possible match for Galactus.

LTR, and abstracts in general, are way overrated on this board. But didn't Cthullu get ko'd by a steam-engine-powered ship?

He is not even a god, just a high priest. LTR stomps Lovecraftian mythos if fight is in a neutral universe.

Abstract entities would not exist in Lovecraft's universe, kind of the opposite idea - abstracts are ideals made real, Cthullu mythos is "humans are screwed by being in a universe allien to them where they don't matter in the slightest."

Most of Lovecraft's entities are pretty vague in terms of power-levels...you can only draw from conjecture
