Can powerful beings such as the Living Tribunal, Eternity, Great Evil Beast, etc., be literally knocked out? Not BFRed, but KOed, so that their 'body' is just laying there, unconcious?

Besides the TOAA and other omnipotents, can any other entity or entities do this, or are these beings exempt from being knocked out?

I think they can by another being (since they can make them be knocked out).

I think you have to define what it means to be "knocked out" before we can answer the question. For a human being, it means to be unconscious...

But, what does it mean for one of those ultra powerful abstract entities?

@Timandm:

That's what I meant. Just for one of those beings to be on the ground, bereft of consciousness. (So that World War Hulk or Aquaman could walk up to the Living Tribunal, start kicking it, and not worry about being zapped to oblivion.)

Yes, though probably not in the same way we think of "knocked out" as (biologically speaking)

Okay.. So... I'm reminded of this conversation between Reed Richards and Spider-Man, I think it's in one of the first few issues of FF... Reed is explaining about how we 'perceive' certain beings. For example, I think he said something like, "You don't think Galactus is REALLY a giant guy wearing purple armor..." or something like that...

I wondering, what ARE these beings, really? ARe they mostly some form of energy that we can't really wrap our minds around. And as such, how would we really just 'knock them out.' or 'render them unconscious.'? Perhaps it comes down to 'stopping their thought processes..' And then, can that be done by something as simple as 'punching them?'
