Poll: which character has the strongest punch? (141 votes)

Superman 13%
Thor 9%
Black Adam 1%
Sentry 6%
Hulk 17%
Juggernaut 7%
Doomsday 16%
Darksied 9%
Thanos 18%
Captain Marvel (shazam) 1%
Gladiator 1%
Solomon Grundy 1%

No super speed assisted punches. All the characters are hanging out at the local pub and see punching bag game that measures how hard you punch. After jawing back and fourth about who has the strongest punch they decide to bet beers on who will measure highest on a standing still punch. Breaking the machine is not possible.

well because i Think that Sentry has a strong punch and we havent exactly seen what his upper power limits are since his new power Upgrade. regardless as of right now darkseid has the stronger punch. Why are people voting for Thanos?

#13 Posted by SheenLantern (6895 posts) - - Show Bio

@kidman560: So that automatically puts him at the top of the list? Because 'We haven't exactly seen what his upper power limits are'?

no but we dont know. i know hes got a stronger punch than thor. and this guy really should have specified what versions of each character especially Sentry, Darkseid, Hulk, and Doomsday or at least said they were all current. i still cant figure out why people say Thanos can punch the hardest

ehh debatable on Juggy if jugg gets a running start maybe but if hes standing still not a chance. I just think that Sentry can punch harder. im really hoping he gets a good writing with this power upgrade. look dude im probably wrong but its just my opinion. we can agree to disagree here

Yes, but it was non-canon.
Or at least it's sliiiiightly canon to the Ultimate universe, if I'm not wrong, but the Ultimate universe doesn't even have a regular Sentry and in the end of the day it would still not be canon to the 616 universe.

Superman

People, stop posting this video, it has lots of errors.

Anyways, it really depends, Superman and Black Adam's punches are performed with their super speed, F = MA

Hulk actually emits gamma radiation and this allows him to blow up planets.

Before we begin

What insanity is this?

I’m going to be making a comparison between the Iron Fist and World War Hulk.

That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard!

First, let’s just sit back and relax. Now play the song below and open up your imagination.

No thanks. I’m out of here.

Suit yourself. It’s your loss. Now let me begin.

Who and what is an Iron Fist?

The Iron Fist is a chosen warrior from K’un-L’un that has proven himself through various tests in martial arts. This warrior is chosen to harness the energies and powers of a mystical dragon. With this power, the Iron Fist can use its energy to perform various types of lethal striking techniques such as punching through a jet,

knocking down a temple by punching the ground

And karate chopping down a flying battleship.

So far this power has only been shown to increase Danny’s (the current Iron Fist) durability, speed and striking abilities. It acts like a multiplier to his current stats which are of a normal human being. Here are Danny’s stats.

Power Grids
Official Ratings[7]
Intelligence
3
Strength
2
Speed
2
Durability
3
Energy Projection
3
Fighting Skills
6

Source: http://marvel.wikia.com/Official_Handbook_of_the_Marvel_Universe_A-Z_Vol_1_5

Notice how all his stats are rated near the peak of man. Yet his energy projectile rating is rated at a 3. It is because of this energy projectile rating that specializes in amping mostly his strikes that allow him to perform his feats. So how does this relate to the Hulk? Specifically World War Hulk?

Gravage Hulk vs World War Hulk (aka Green Scar Hulk) vs World Breaker Hulk

World War Hulk is just the Gravage Hulk after going through a lot of physical and emotional pain and trauma during the Planet Hulk storyline. There really is no difference in persona, only strength. During and after the Planet Hulk storyline the Gravage Hulk became much stronger and powerful than all his previous incarnations.

So who is World Breaker Hulk?

To cut it short, World Breaker Hulk (WBH) is just World War Hulk (WWH) using his powers to the full extent. In other words he’s just “cutting loose.” It has been hinted time and time again that the Hulk emits gamma radiation and more so when he is angered. World War Hulk is the first Hulk to actually emit so much gamma radiation it becomes a weapon. The first showing of this energy was when he almost sunk the East Coast of the US by taking a mere step which released this devastating power.

To further clarify, take a look at his most updated power grid.

Notice how Hulk now has an energy rating of 5. This is Hulk at his absolute peak so far. This energy projectile rating of 5 directly reflects how angry he is which also coincides with his strength and durability. In this state, his durability and strength rating of 7 are further amplified by his energy projectile of 5. Thus

World War Hulk + Energy Projectile Rating of 5 = World Breaker Hulk

Even before this projectile rating of 5 was released, we saw a peak of this power when he almost sank the seaboard. Go back to that image and notice all the green energy everywhere. Here Savage Hulk almost turns in World War Hulk.

We even got a hint of it when Red Hulk couldn't absorb all the gamma energy out of WWH. It was most likely that WWH created and stored so much gamma energy that Red Hulk couldn't steal it at a rate that WWH was emitting it. He even performs a gamma energized thunderclap that pretty much finishes the Red Hulk off and gives him a bloody nose and mouth.

Now where am I getting at with all this?

World War Hulk – The Immortal Iron Hulk

If Iron Fist’s energy rating of 3 allows a peak human male to knock down temples, uppercut through small ships and karate chop down a flying battle ship, imagine what it allows a Hulk with a strength and durability rating of 7 to do. Of course Hulk is never going to use this power because he can’t control it like Danny can. But he can actually summon and use this power anytime he wants or needs it. But look at the collateral damage it causes.

Here he causes a giant crater when he summons this power.

Here he destroys the East Side of Las Vegas just by summoning this power.

Just by powering up in this state you can see the devastation and collateral damage it causes. This is the reason why WWH never uses this power, because of the dangers it holds. But don’t think he can't summon this power when he wants as he did above and he did so again later.

Above, you can see him telling Doctor Strange that he’s going to cut loose and use this power again. What happens? Red She Hulk and WWH trade a blow that indirectly blows up a planet. Indirectly meaning they didn’t even need to touch the planet, the explosion was caused by the gamma energized sonic boom from their blow.

The special thing to note above is that collateral damage didn’t happen when he used his WBH powers. This is the most interesting part to me as he unleashed and channeled that power when he traded the blow with Red She Hulk. It makes me curios to see if in the future through training if WWH could actually channel and use this energy just like the Iron Fist. I highly doubt it though as it would make him overpowered than he already is.

But with that being said, I want you to walk out of here and speculate how powerful WBH’s strikes are. Imagine if Iron Fist had a strength rating and durability rating of 7 and his energy projectile is at a 5 rating. That is World Breaker Hulk right there, the Immortal Iron Hulk.

Without speed, A LOT of these characters are out.

  • Superman
  • Thor
  • Black Adam
  • Sentry
  • Hulk
  • Juggernaut
  • Doomsday
  • Darksied
  • Thanos
  • Captain Marvel (shazam)
  • Gladiator
  • Solomon Grundy

Now some of these characters are just out becuase they don't perform magic amps to their punches. Thor is out because a lot of his hammer strikes are magically amped, but he's not getting his hammer here.

  • Superman
  • Thor
  • Black Adam
  • Sentry
  • Hulk
  • Juggernaut
  • Doomsday
  • Darksied
  • Thanos
  • Captain Marvel (shazam)
  • Gladiator
  • Solomon Grundy

It's between these four guys:

Hulk (who emitts explosive energy into his punches when he wants to, clearly shown above), Juggernaut (whose punches are actually magically amped with a barrier), The Shazam guys (who can magically amp their punches), Thanos and Darkseid who both energy projectile their punches.

From what I have seen, I believe the Hulk has the most impressive punch. Without hitting the planet he was on, trading blows with red she hulk they managed to blow up a planet. They didn't touch this planet either. It blew up from the energy and sonic boom alone.

Have any of these guys busted a planet from not even punching it directly like Hulk?

@slimj87d: The earliest version (and weakest version) of Thanos destroyed a Planet just as a result of having a grappling match with Drax the Destroyer. He's been upgraded twice since then.

I chose Thanos. I assumed it was the "normal" and latest versions of Thor/Superman/Hulk. All three have versions (RK/Prime/WB) I would have chose over Thanos, but since it wasn't specified I couldn't assume they were those versions.

No he cannot IMP, he doesn't move his limbs at light speed and are you guys not reading the OP? No speed.

I don't know. Only read DoS not H/P.

So with this (big) bias, WBH raw strength is greater.

You curl your fingers up to create a fist. Then, using your arm to propel it, strike objects or people with the aforementioned fist.

You take your hand and curl your fingers into what is called a "fist" then you swing your "fist" at your target. Upon hitting said target you have completed what is known as a punch.

@slimj87d:

World breaker Hulk simply shows Hulk with such a massive amount of energy that planets, and supepowered inidviduals who ususally present some challenge to the Hulk, end up getting ripped by apart like tissue paper from Hulk's slightest movements and Indirect hits.

Hulk showed awesome destructive power from slight movements!!! He shook and completely destroyed worlds as well as world-breaking super-people with slight movements and indirect striking!

A punch will pack far more destructive power than footstep!

If Hulk can casually sweep away planets with slight movements and incredibly powerful planet-busting super-people with his indirect striking, just imagine what a direct hit from his punches would do!!!

I don't know if you can count the Wbh feat as a punch but, it's hulk anyway cuz he destroyed an asteroid bigger than earth with one shot in one of his weakest forms. Nobady can really match this feat, but if its not him it's superman but hulk has it in feats. Pound for pound IF might be up there and she hulk deserves mention her punches are amazing.
