1. HULK'S POWER-SET

Debunking myths about the Hulk's powerset part 1:

To those who say "Hulk can't have limitless power because he doesn't have limitless anger power":

The Hulk is not dependent on his own strength. Some people mistakenly think the statement "madder he gets, stronger he gets" means that Hulk is using limitless power he already has to gets unlimited power, which makes no sense. Why would Hulk need to increase in power if he already has it all in the first place? Why would you grab power if you had it all already?

Hulk increases power when his body is pressed toward it physical limit, either by the pressure he or others put on him. His power activates in instance that the body is being overtaxed by it's own activity or overtaxed by other outside forces and meets those demands by growing stronger to in order to avoid death. The Hulk doesn't increase in strength just because he wants to. The act of Hulk drawing universal atomic energy into himself is only a matter of fulfilling his body's own personal need.

Statements such as this sum up the Hulk's power nicely:

TALES TO ASTONISH #63, 64 & 65

"His limitless strength!"

"One figure strides forth... huge, invincible, with power so great it continually feeds upon itself... The Incredible Hulk!"

TALES TO ASTONISH #93

"But, such is the power of the incredible Gamma Rays that created him--the more the Hulk exerts himself, the stronger he becomes!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #112

"The Hulk cannot tire! The more he fights--the stronger he becomes!"

"Though the Incredible Hulk is subjected to deadly forces beyond mortal description, still does the indescribable Gamma Ray Energy within his massive frame continue to sustain him -- still does his mighty heart beat on, as his all-consuming rage increases with every passing second!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #141

"As the Hulk gets angrier--he becomes stronger--Stronger--EVER STRONGER!"

In conclusion,

Hulk's power is not centered around his anger but stress. being pushed toward his limits. Anger makes stress. Banner/Hulk being pushed towards his limits makes him reach for the proportionate amount of energy needed to sustain himself.

You start making Hulk uncomfortable with a significant amount of bodily stress and he gets stronger, grabbing at the endless power of the universe, the fabric of reality, which is known as atoms and the energy of atoms.

Being pushed towards his physical limits such as when he seriously exerts himself (like when he fighting really hard and/or getting angry) or gets hit a by a powerful enough force then the Hulk is made to grow stronger in proportion to that on a genetic level.

This extra-chemical process not only means that the Hulk has limitless in strength but is indestructible as well where it counts most, on the genetic level.

His strength and invulnerability increase, on the genetic level, and regenerates new tissue corresponding to the newfound power of his genes.

You wouldn't know it by his appearance to the naked human eye but Hulk's power has little to do with just mass. It is the the power of universal atomic energy, gamma ray energy, drawn to his body that gives the added mass such a great attraction force, producing the super-dense bio-mass, giving Banner/Hulk his great superhuman strength and equal durability.

As a side-note: When it comes to superpowers, secondary powers are the most important. If you're not immune to your own powers, able to withstand your own rebounding force, your body falls apart.

Debunking myths about the Hulk's powerset part 2:

Another myth about Hulk's stress-proportionate power increase is that that it "takes time" to response to stress. This is certainly not the case.

The whole point of Hulk being such an awesome foe is that his strength is drawn from a limitless source and increases simultaneously, right along with whatever force that puts a significant amount of pressure on his body.

The Hulk amps mid-battle, that's what just he does, instantly increasing to the proportion of the stress his body takes. Hulk does not have to wait around all day to increase in strength. That would be ridiculous and someone who have took down the Hulk a long time ago. The Hulk would be dead already if his foes needed to give him time to adjust to whatever they threw at him.

Hulk doesn't need to "take time". When put under enough pressure, he has the energy resources to meet the demands of survival and immediately adapts. Where did you get the idea that Hulk power increase "takes time"?

His DNA powers up instantly. Its the rest of the body that takes time.

DNA is the protein factory of the body. The DNA is what produces all other organic matter. Once Banner/Hulk's DNA powers-up it has to form new proteins matter for all the organic systems, replacing all the old with the new.

Of course, it's completely biologically impossible for the DNA to assemble all the body diverse proteins that belong to the different organ systems in no time at all.

The Hulk forms all the proteins quickly,but no matter how quick, it's definitely not ever an instant process.

The total transformation process does take time but even that doesn't matter as long as Banner/Hulk's DNA remains intact through it's continuous intake of stress-proportionate power, it can keep reproducing all that stuff.

2. HULK'S POWER-LEVEL

Hulk's power-level part 1:

You guys still arguing about the Grey Hulk smashing a planet-sized asteroid? How can anyone think a wussy little rocket like the one he used, launched him hard enough to destroy a planet? The asteroid was twice a big as earth. You think his puny rocket pack had that kind of power? It was pretty contrary to that if you looked at the comic. The thing even disintegrated upon exiting earth's atmosphere. If the rocket was so powerful and only relied on the mass the object it hurled, then the Hulk would't have even been needed in that situation! If that was truly the case, then they could have simply used some other object that weighed half a ton and had enough density.

Is it that some can't except that Grey Hulk is just that strong? Maybe it's because your'e determining the character's power level by what is said, out of context, in the character guide book.

I remember when Bruce Banner was seperated from the Hulk with Doc Sampson's nutrient-bath treatment during the mid- 1980s and Banner described Hulk's strength as 100 ton at the least.That statement was soon put in a character guidebooks, out of context at times, and applied to others character as well.

This led to some people mistakenly thinking that Hulk at base level, meaning his level of strength he has before he starts to increase it in the heat of battle, was 100 tons(and other characters as well).

Those people are obviously mistaken for two reasons:

1. From the beginning, the Hulk has always been shown to be the equivalent of a vastly powerful nuclear weapon that could grow in power as needed, making the military might of the entire world look like a joke by comparison. In the years before the Hulk has overpowered force equal to the sun, devastating dimensions, Holding spatial singularities, punching through time-storms, smashing buildings made to withstand massive nuclear assault, withstanding planet devastating assaults, gamma-bombs and other nukes at point blank range, etc.

2. The comic that had Banner make the comment about lifting 100 tons:

Banners exact words were : "This is the way I-- or should i say it-- looks today. Half-a-ton in weight, able to lift two hundred times that much".

"Quite a change from this fellow, this is a representation of how the hulk looked in the first few hours of his existence. in addition to the obvious difference in color, he was smaller, less powerful and less human in appearance. More brutish."

Now, do you think the statement above was truly an accurate measurement of Hulk power or merely said to give us the general idea that Hulk can put out force that is very far out of proportion to his body weight because he is inhumanly strong?

The image above isn't the only indication of how powerful Hulk is. Hulk is characterized as being an extremely atomic bomb in human form from the very beginning:

So powerful is that the Hulk that on of the first times the military barely manages to capture him, he must be held with a cage of anti-matter beams in Tales to Astonish #78:

Army scientist, Dr. Zaxon is incapable of even measuring the Hulk's vast power with a geiger counter. "I can hardly believe these readings! He's a veritable blast furnace of limitless organic energy! There is no way to even measure is strength!" From Tales to Astonish #78:

The power of the Hulk is even shown through the power of the gamma ray energy which fuels him. Now one wouldn't think Banner would be such a prolific inventor. But he definitely is. He invented the Gamma Ray Gun, capable of repelling the Toad Men's entire alien fleet in Incredible Hulk #2 and recounted decades later in Over the Edge #3:

The power of gamma rays on full display here as the Hulk's "gamma-spawned might" can also give light to an "eons-dark cosmos" in Incredible Hulk #126:

The Russian super-villain, Gremlin, invents a Devastator cannon designed to emit a beam of near-nuclear energy which is amplified "almost infinitely." Savage Hulk survives it anyway in Incredible Hulk #188-89:

Once again, we can see the Hulk's power easily dwarfs any nuclear assault that earth can muster. Here he shown ripping through a bunker designed to withstand the explosion of many thousands of megatons in magnitude. "Against the force of the gamma-energized Hulk.... it fares not well at all in incredible Hulk #177:

100 tons may be impressive to humans but when you think about it it's not that much and it's the very least that the Hulk, a vastly powerful superhuman, can do. You hear that? "THE LEAST"! This lines up with first reason I have stated above. If the Hulk were really that weak then he just wouldn't be the Hulk.

Obviously the Hulk, even the grey one, is stronger than some people think. Train engines can carry hundreds and thousands of tons. You really think the Hulk is no better than a train engine?! Hulk's more powerful than an atomic bomb!! Of course, he's better than 100 men or a train engine! If you calculated exactly how much the Hulk could lift or how much force he could press with at base levels you'd be adding a lot of zeros behind the front number. You'd have to use scientific notation to calculate Hulk's power while it's not even growing.

Even Ironman is not so weak as to be limited to 100 tons. That's right! Ironman's full power, all his juice concentrated in one blow, is able to produce the force of a megaton bomb, your average mountain-crumbling nuclear explosion.

That doesn't even begin to top the Hulk! The sun is a trillion megatons bombs exploding every second. A gamma ray burst produces as much energy as the sun does in it's entire billion year life cycle in milliseconds to a few hundred seconds. That's about 31 nontillion 360 octillion megatons. That is some real fire-power!

Yet some think that Hulk's full strength before he starts increasing in strength in the heat of battle, is 100 tons? That's pretty laughable. You don't even have to be a comicbook-geek who's read every issue of every comic to know that doesn't make any sense.

We can blame that bit of ridiculousness on whoever's been in charge of the Marvel character guide-book for the past three and a half decades.

Want some additional proof that Hulk has no trouble at all pressing hundreds and thousands of tons? Here you go:

The pressure Savage Hulk's strength can exert is so powerful, Savage Hulk "[a]lmost effortlessly stops the speeding train with the sheer gamma-ray power of his iron-muscled body!" From Fantastic Four #26:

Incredible Hulk #122 and Thor #385 (this time as a tremendous bludgeon):

To give you a sense of scale as to amount of effort required for these lifting feats, here it is described that the weight of forty tons, "might as well weigh as many ounces!" From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #22:

A calm Savage Hulk casually pulls along "thousands of tons" of logs and lifting a train in Incredible Hulk #274:

He's lifted up entire castles as they crumble and collapse on themselves in Incredible Hulk #108 and 120:

In a weakened state, Hulk presses a mountain range that dwarfed the Andes in Secret Wars #4:

Again, in a weakened state, Hulk stops a planet from destruction by shifting the alignment of its plates in Incredible Hulk vol 2 #102:

once again, in a weakened state, Hulk has withstood being drained of his energy by suns eaters for seven hours straight! (Incredible Hulk vol.2 #99) :

Here, he tears open the side of a mountain base in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #64:

An apt measure of strength, Savage Hulk's punches are some of the most powerful in comics. Here, Savage Hulk hammers down an entire landscape despite it being supported by enormous pylons in Marvel Treasury Edition #25:

Hulk's power-level Part 2:

Marvel's handbooks don't do a good job in defining power-levels like it's a weight lifting competition.

By what's shown in the comics, the weights that the big powerhouses could press would need to be expressed with scientific notation..... Meaning that the of weight they can press is UNEARTHLY. Powerhouses like this don't often run into everyday objects they have trouble lifting so Instead they shatter planets with a punch, overcome the power of the sun, withstand planet splitting impacts, hold spacial singularities, close rifts in space-time by punching at them, etc.

The classification name of “100 class” is barely explained and only came into use around the mid 1980’s but here it simply put: the classification of "100 class" applies to Anyone who can press an amount of tons within the triple digits and beyond. Whether you only have the bare minimum strength of 100 men(being able to lift 100 tons) or the strength of a trillion or more, all of that fits within 100 ton class strength. It's a very general category that holds more than one subcategory of power-levels.

So now we know! The "100 class" is for those who can lift that weight or above.

Its a horrible way to classify ALL power-levels and Marvel barely explains their own class system so that we can understand it in the first place. When classifying characters power-levels, if you have to do it in more that one sentence then you aren't doing it right. The reader will probably be confused or won't understand right away with no problem at all.

Every other piece of information tells you to throw the stupid "100 class" classification out the window and forget about it. Readers, do yourself a favor, ignore the stupid "100 class" thing, okay?

We've seen Hulk, Thor, Hercules and others of their level doing things far better than 100 tons or whatever. A train engine can carry hundreds and thousands of tons. You believe Thor is not more powerful than big man-made locomotive? or that he's no powerful than a mob of 100 people? That's just ridiculous.

In the universe of comicbooks you can:

A. Lift average amount of weight

B. Lift like a top Olympic-level athlete

C. Have the strength of a mob of men

D. Be as powerful as a locomotive(lifts hundreds to thousand of tons)

D. Have the power of a nuclear power-plant.

E. Are as powerful or more powerful than a star and can destroy a planet with your bare hands.

F. Can devastate galaxies.

G. Can devastate large dimensions , y'know, the big portions of the universe so large they make a galaxy look like a grain of sand. Dimensions are so big, they're even referred to as "little universes".

Also, for those who don't know, here's something to help shed light on the confusion of differing power-levels among the most powerful characters:

HERE ARE THE SUBCATEGORIES OF POWER-LEVELS WITHIN THE BROADER CATEGORY OF "100 CLASS" STRENGTH:

Low tier-Powerhouse: typically more powerful than a locomotive(because train engines can carry hundreds and thousands of tons) but nothing beyond that.

For example, to directly indicate the limits of this power level: Characters on this power-level can't take anything above anti-tank missiles, meaning they aren't tough enough withstand or exert forces on the magnitude of a nuclear bomb and beyond. Character examples: The Thing and Namor, some of the earliest strongmen of Marvel..

Mid tier-Powerhouse:

character example: Ironman is this because he's powered by a miniaturized nuclear reactor but his power in not quite as great as Thor and the Hulk. Using 100 percent of his power he can achieve power of nuclear proportions for a few seconds but it is still dwarfed by the much more powerful, Hulk and Thor.

Top tier-Powerhouse/Planet-buster: More powerful than an atomic bomb. Some are even classified on this level as the least of their power.

Character examples: Hercules, Hulk, Thor, Silver Surfer, Superman and superman archetypes,etc.

Those within this category who excel beyond it would most obviously be Hulk Thor, Hercules, Hyperion, Gladiator, Silver Surfer, Sentry, Molecule man, etc.

Galaxy buster- Can destroy galaxies.

character examples: Odin, Zeus,Thor(Odin force), Galactus, Celestials, Beyonder, Molecule man(when pushed hard enough), Hulk(when pushed hard enough) or Sentry(when pushed hard enough),etc.

3. HULK'S REMARKABLE FEATS OF STRENGTH

First of all let me ask...

Which is greater?

A. the energy required to pull earth out its orbit of the sun

OR

B. the energy required to reverse the planet's orbit, therefore pushing back and overpowering the sun's own electromagnetic force?

The answer is B.

If you would actually read it, this is exactly what the Hulk is shown doing in this comic scan:

Overpowering a field of energy endowed with sufficient power to change the orbit of a planet(Tales to Astonish #89)

Hulk has the power to move a planet at baseline.

The fact that the field strength needed to be increased is proof that Hulk was contesting that kind of power.

Here's Hulk once again:

Applying force to the space-time structure itself to prevent the Defenders from being absorbed into a fissure (Defenders #3)(with the size of the singularity estimated in about seven feets according to the Schwarzschild radius, then it's mass/gravitational attraction, by the equivalence principle, is thus equivalent to roughly two hundreds Earths),

Planetary level threats in Marvel and DC comics a have been shown doing this so the Hulk isn't the only one who the black hole trick wouldn't work on. It won't work on Thor, Hulk, Hercules, Silver Surfer, Superman, the supermen archetypes or of those in the planet. buster category of power. These characters have been shown shatter they force of a spatial singularity with strength that is superior to them. There's a reason why those of the planer-buster powerlevel don't hope to win a fight by throwing their opponent of the same powerlevel into a black hole or the sun: IT DOESN'T WORK ON THEM!!!

Hulk breaking up the space-time continuum(Incredible Hulk #135)

Classic Dr. Strange's mystic barrier can't withstand the punches of "the most powerful creature on the face of the Earth," from Defenders #18:

Savage Hulk's punches against the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak cause such painful feedback against classic Dr. Strange, he loses concentration and gives Savage Hulk an opportunity to escape in Incredible Hulk #207:

Even the Collector's most powerful forcefield is shattered by Savage Hulk's punches in Incredible Hulk #198:

The power of his fists has been directly compared to many indescribable forces, including Mjolnir. Here, "the Incredible Hulk has done what no other power save Thor's hammer could have done!" From Avengers #5:

And no description of mine can supplant the comic's own description here when Savage Hulk confronts a forcefield of Deviant technology powered by the Sacred Flame: "That something -- anything -- could grip hold of an energy field should be impossible! But the Hulk grabs hold just the same! The field begins to stretch like a physical thing in his grasp -- as he pushes and pulls with ever-increasing might, until -- the barrier collapses!" From Incredible Hulk #242:

Ripping off a powerful device designed to fight against the Celestials(Incredible Hulk #242)(levelling down, if it could withstand power proportional toKubik's, many orders of magnitude inferior to the Celestials, that's already significant)

Savage Hulk frees himself from the Stranger's telepathic commands in Tales to Astonish #89:

Aliens with technology formidable enough to stagger classic Dr. Strange's seraphim shields and ensnare Silver Surfer use a Starwheel machine to trap and drain the Defenders. Only Savage Hulk is able to power through the draining and cause enough feedback to destroy the Starwheel and free them all in Defenders vol.2 #8:

And any such notion that the Gray Hulk can never achieve the heights of other Hulks' strength levels should be dismissed in the face of the following infamous feat. Launched by experimental anti-magnetic jet-propelled rocket springs, the Gray Hulk busts apart an asteroid measured to be TWICE the size of the Earth in Marvel Comics Presents #52:

Gray Hulk definitely does not lack in striking power as he manages to best the Abomination. "On paper, the Abomination may, technically, be the more powerful of the two. The [Gray] Hulk never read those papers." From Incredible Hulk Annual #15:

Hulk pushes two spheres of matter and antimatter apart, the inertia force-field being greater than a neutron star(Marvel Team-Up Annual #2)

One of the most powerful entities Marvel ever published, a living cosmic cube, the Beyonder, famously commented, "You are nothing but raging power personified! An infinity of power -- with no finite element inside!" From Secret Wars II #2:

The Mad Titan Thanos famously shared such trepidation when faced with the assault of a Power Gem wielding Champion, "In many ways I assume this is what it would be like battling the Terran behemoth, the Hulk. A conflict I've sought to avoid over the years." From Thanos Quest #1:

Even the impossibly powerful Celestials recognize the Hulk's power. Gamiel the Manipulator searched for (and found in Hulk), "evolution's crowning achievement -- the pinnacle of what your species will become..." From Marvel Monsters: Devil Dinosaur #1:

Doc Sampson finds that, through his own battery of tests, "There truly seems to be no limit to the Hulk's strength!" From Incredible Hulk #228:

Here's Hulk overwhelming a quantum molder designed by Ultron to liquify and mold adamantium. During the fight Mad thinker, through mathematical formula, shows us once again what is already known to many, that Hulk's strength is incalculable in Indestructible Hulk #1:

Even the mutated super-genius, Leader, realizes, "The tests are worthless! There's no way to measure his strength! There is nothing he cannot do! I cannot build a device powerful enough to test him with!" From Tales to Astonish #73:

It also shown that Hulk easily withstands extreme temperatures (Tales to astonish #73, Tales to astonish #80, incredible Hulk #105)

Taking a gamma-bomb at point -blank range, a bomb so powerful, regular nuclear bombs are a joke in comparison to it. (Tales to astonish #62)

Hulk withstanding planet-splitting explosions (incredible Hulk #112)

The secondary shockwaves that Savage Hulk's blows produce can be just as destructive and powerful as his actual blows. By striking the ground, he produces a shockwave powerful enough to knock a flying Human Torch unconscious in Fantastic Four #25:




In Inhumans #12, he gives the Inhuman Gorgon a taste of his own medicine:


He's cleverly caused tremors that rumble tanks enough to shoot at their own planes in Incredible Hulk #121:


He's even diverted the flight path of missiles with a shockwaves' vibrations in Incredible Hulk #120:



Hulk bring literally brings down the house In incredible Hulk #246 and Tales to astonish #65






While they can be localized, most of the time Savage Hulk's shockwaves are catastrophic in nature. Here the shockwaves are registered by seismologists inIncredible Hulk #147:


An entire river is parted and splashed away by the concussive power of another shockwave in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #8:


A double-fist pound's shockwave rumbles the Rainbow Bridge enough to toss aside Heimdall in Tales to Astonish #101:


He's destroyed an entire subterranean city with the shockwaves produced by a single blow in Incredible Hulk #127:


His double-fist pounds have caused volcanic eruptions in Incredible Hulk #117 and 170:



Even while in upstate New York, his shockwaves are felt instantly miles away in Maine in Incredible Hulk Annual 2001:


A single footstomp's "shockwave causes devastation for miles" in Incredible Hulk Annual 2001:

Another double-fist pound sends shockwaves rippling across a town in Deadpool vol.5 #39:


A mutated Miek is punched across a landscape straight through a volcano in Incredible Hulks #625:

He punches a platform underneath a gigantic Wendigo and Bi-Beast so hard, he sends them to outer space in Incredible Hulks #631:



Savage Hulk clashes with Hyperion and the shockwaves they radiate are felt "countless miles away, [as] geologists look to their seismographs -- then shake their heads in disbelief." From Defenders #13:


But Savage Hulk can wreak even greater havoc solo. Here, Savage Hulk's double-fist pound in Colorado creates shockwaves that are felt all the way out inDenmark, from Incredible Hulk Annual #5:


Hulk's body not only feeds on gamma radiation, it emits it. And Hulk's used it in defensive and offensive ways. Here, he "expends his almost limitless energy and power, [and] his temperature rises to an unimaginable degree," melting his icy prison in Incredible Hulk #5:



An uncontrollable torrent of gamma radiation ends up incinerating bullets in mid-flight in Incredible Hulk #446. The amount of radiation he projects is so lethal, it instantly kills a handler who exposes his suit and even melts a containment unit that would smother a nuclear warhead:

Hulk's extreme levels of strength have allowed him to do things like ripping whole dimensions asunder, even indirectly, with a thunderclaps and collision shock waves, also withstanding force that can rip apart dimensions, as well as being able to destroy planets with mere footsteps:

A Mindless Hulk literally tears Nightmare's Realm apart (Incredible Hulk #299)

In an attempt to counter a attack from Night-Crawler, the Savage Hulk slams his hands together with so much force that not only does he defuse the attack, but he manages to destroy all the planets/landmasses within the entire dimension(Incredible Hulk #126)!

Sending concussive force throughout countless dimensions by the impact of his collision with the Ironclad(Incredible Hulk #305)(entire dimensions, and not multiversal planets. First, the writer describes dimensions and where there are planets there are also dimensions, since every planet is situated in dimensions. Therefore to send concussive force to planets propitiates send concussive force to dimensions and their multitudes of astronomical entities. Second, there are dimensions without planets: Universes in the beginning of formation, universes where equal quantities of matter and antimatter were produced and generated only radiation, etc. Besides, there are infinite inter-branched parallel universes in the Omniverse. Therefore the postulate that suggests only planets received the entire energy is probabilistically equal to zero. Finally, the planets shown there were just examples of what occurred inside the dimensions. The same argument is applied for the premise that they were only sub-sections of the universe, just replacing the words "planet" for "sub-dimension" and "dimension" for "universe". It is important to perceive that the U-Foes's powers were vastly augmented while on Earth, so that Vector repelled reality itself and transported them to theCrossroads)(Incredible Hulk #304).

It should go without saying that World War Hulk's thunderclaps are nothing short of devastating. While holding back, a thunderclap stuns Namora, Angel and the Immortal Hercules in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #107:

Here he tosses back Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus and Emma Frost in diamond form. From World War Hulk: X-Men #2:

World War Hulk was powerful enough to match an all-out Sentry blow for blow in World War Hulk #5:

Everything done in the World War Hulk storyline is Hulk holding back with his punches. Amadeus Cho confirms that with his abilities in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:

There isn't really anybody in comics who gets a second wind like World War Hulk. After Bruce and Bob beat the alter-egos out of each other, a spike of anger just brings back a seemingly exhausted World War Hulk to full power... and beyond. From World War Hulk #5:

and there he is going "worldbreaker"...

As he ascends towards Worldbreaker levels, the shockwaves from even a single footstep are felt for hundreds of miles around, tossing helicopters in the air, and causing nearly irreparable damage to the bedrock of the Eastern Seaboard.

Even after he allowed the heroes to drain his gamma away, the damage he caused would have split Manhattan Island in half. From World War Hulk: Aftersmash #1:

The consequences of the Worldbreaker's shockwaves are unequivocally continental in scale. Amadeus Cho reminds Red She-Hulk, "I know. I'm not worried about you... just the rest of the freaking continent." From Incredible Hulks #632:

And again in Son of Hulk #11-12

(Incredible Hulks #610-611)

It's made clear that the "worldbreaker" power-level wasn't just a one time feat. When he's pushed towards Worldbreaker levels again, the shockwaves produced are felt once again throughout the Eastern Seaboard mirroring his previous footstep. From Incredible Hulk #610:

(Incredible Hulk #630-635)

And Again....

In this scene Hulk destroys a planet indirectly, without making contact with his limbs, but instead through the mere shockwaves going throughout the air that he made in a collision with an opponent made equally as powerful. The shockwaves even vaporize foes that are equal to Hulk or Silver Surfer at their average power-levels(he even lets the guys attack him so he can amp up that much faster!!).

It's plain to see that worlbreaker Hulk is so powerful that even the power of planet-busting superhumans pale in comparison to him.

e

World War Hulk tosses Fin Fang Foom backwards with such force that Umar's enchanted shields are shattered in Incredible Hulks #634:

Despite the Red Hulk having forcibly absorbed some of World War Hulk's gamma energies, he is defeated by a final thunderclap in Hulk #24:

World War Hulk's also saved lives with his thunderclaps. Here he blows away enough sand to support a crumbling parking garage in Incredible Hulk#611:

There's a lot more where this came from.

Don't mess with the Hulk cause' he's the strongest there is!!

4. THE THREE LAWS OF MOTION

The Three Laws of Motion part 1:

1. Mass is synonymous with inertia or momentum, an object's resistance to movement in a state of excitement or rest which also the same as energy.

Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

2. Force is equal to an objects mass times it's acceleration, F= M x A

The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.

3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

For example: just because a person is super strong doesn't mean the object they grab or the platform they stand and move on is as strong as them

The Three Laws of Motion part 2: Applied to Superhumans

Superhuman Strength &Speed:

Stop using the "speed-blitzing" for every argument. It doesn't apply the same way to characters of like power levels.

The speed of a strike is determined by the amount of force put into it. The harder a person hits, the faster the strike will travel. The fact that these guys have tremendous power but have light amount body mass in comparison to that power means they will be able to move extremely fast.

Being super-powered usually goes beyond have super-powered muscles since super-powered people are usually different on a genetic level. They should have perceptions different to normal humans. Their senses and thus, the speed at which their brain processes information will be proportionally elevated. Super-powered people who are physical equals should be on the same the level when it comes to the speed of the strike and their reaction time. Keeping the pace shouldn't be a problem.

No one can exert full strength and thus operate at top combat-speed 100 percent of the time.

I ask, where does speed come from? What is it's relation to power, really? Do you know?

some people say that it's "will", as in "Superman wills himself to accelerate or "solar energy".

Both those things, "will" and "energy" are synonymous with "power" or "force".

"Power/Force" is the ability to push yourself and move other things.out of your way, and keep on truckin'.

Speed is the rate of travel. The rate of travel/motion, speed, is always in proportion to power/force.

An objects own power/force works against the other forces that surround it and give resistance. These resisting forces are called inertia.

In exerting force on other objects, you can cause them to accelerate and break apart. How much the other object accelerates depends on it's individual force of inertia.

It is power (focused and fully brought out) that determines speed. Speed of travel requires force. An object's speed is always proportional to it's force.

Superhuman Durability:

Of course their bodies are super-dense and made to handle to pressure it puts on itself as it goes against the force of other objects, able to withstand their own rebounding force or power that is akin to theirs.

"The force of light-speed isn't the end-all and be all" :

May I remind people that the force of light-speed travel and faster-than-light-speed travel is not the end-all and be-all of the universe power because if it was, no one would be discussing how many times in excess of light-speed can someone go. There is always greater force to be achieved. light-speed and any other speed are merely finite measurements in a infinite universe; Finite forces that can always be surpassed by an even greater force.

As for the argument of the "infinite mass punch",

Mass is synonymous with inertia or momentum, an object's resistance to movement in a state of excitement or rest which also the same as energy.

Things going at the speed of light or faster may have "uncountable mass" by our puny earthling standards, increased in inertia to a great degree, but not infinite. Saying things that go at the speed of light or faster have "infinite mass" is like saying any car going at 300mph is all-powerful. The energy of the universe is not limited to power of lightspeed, even if light-speed is extremely fast and furiously mighty by human standards.

Hitting with the force of a white dwarf star does not even begin to measure up to what has already done and what he has the potential to do.

How does this apply to Hulk and other non-flyers?

Hulk can move fast but only in short distances because the ground isn't as strong as he is. Upon reaching a certain speed, the ground breaks up to the point where he doesn't have enough friction to run. That's just basic physics. That's an example of one of three laws of motion states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Hulk can move fast because he has tremendous power, more powerful than an atomic bomb and relatively low body weight in comparison to that power.

Hulk's speed isn't regularly shown and he doesn't rely on it too much (at least not in the form of running) but he definitely has it. Comics at least follow the three laws of motion and so a person/thing's power has equally proportionate amount of speed.

How does this apply to Superman and flying?

Superman is just like Hulk but since he can fly he doesn't have worry about the ground getting in the way. Also, just because a person can move very fast does mean they can change direction easily, It's the exact opposite. The more these character exert their strength to accelerate themselves in a certain direction, the harder it is to change direction. It's not much good in a fight, traveling in a straight line. Also, because earth is such a weak push off point, it takes awhile to accelerate to lightspeed.

Also, when in the air, you can't give yourself leverage because there's nothing to hold on to which makes it very easy to be sent flying and get knocked out of the air.

Flyers can maneuver well in flight but they aren't living lasers.

As I said before, no one can operate at top speed all the time because speed takes energy. Even a being of limitless(like the Hulk) energy doesn't move as fast possible all the time because of the need to change direction and wanting, but not needing, to rest.

Anyway, comic book readers should know better than to judge by outward appearances. The Hulk looks like a slow-moving, lumbering brute and Superman looks like a puny mere mortal. They're outward appearance certainly doesn't stop them from being so powerful.

Examples:

It would be perfectly reasonable to assume that a 8' tall, 1000+ lbs. monster would be a slow lumbering beast. However, from the beginning, Savage Hulk has always possessed superhuman speed belying his enormous size. His feats of agility and speed are typically accompanied by these sorts of descriptions, "Suddenly, moving with blinding speed which, seems impossible for one so huge..." From Incredible Hulk #4:

The same happens when he fights the Fantastic Four, "Moving with unbelievable speed for one so huge..." From Fantastic Four #12:

Later on when wrapped up by Mr. Fantastic, he escapes by spinning around like a tornado:

In his rematch with Thing he once again begins "moving with surprising speed for one so huge..." in Fantastic Four #25:

He even ends up catching a fired artillery shell and "without stopping, in one smooth, continuous motion, he spins around, using the momentum of the hurtling shell to help propel his giant frame... he releases it" in Fantastic Four #26:

Special weapons and tactics squads try firing bazookas at Savage Hulk "but unfortunately, that 'somethin' isn't quite as fast as the Hulk!" From Iron Man #131:

He's snatched rockets out of the air in Giant-Size Defenders #2 and Incredible Hulk #245:

Savage Hulk has even batted artillery shells in Incredible Hulk #208:

Here he thwarts a crowd of minions, "moving with uncanny speed for one so huge, the green behemoth suddenly tears up an entire section of the stone floor" inTales to Astonish #76:

Savage Hulk confronts a barrage of artillery, "[m]oving with lumbering speed that belies his massive frame, the awesome Hulk thunders toward a gigantic boulder, a hundred feet away" in Tales to Astonish #82:

He has been described as having "lightning-fast reflexes" in Marvel Feature #3 and Incredible Hulk #276:

Comet Man is amazed, "How can he be that big and move so fast?!" From Comet Man #3:

Savage Hulk grabs his enemy "with a swiftness that defies belief!" From Incredible Hulk #264:

Doctor Doom is quick to note, "you are far more agile than I anticipated from one of your size!" From Incredible Hulk #144:

Even the amazing Spider-Man throughout his career can only evade Savage Hulk for so long as shown early on in Amazing Spider-Man #120, and later on inPeter Parker: Spider-Man #14:

While tracking Savage Hulk's movement across the United States, Black Panther notes that he'll be in California in mere hours in Incredible Hulk#128:

He can swim at a speed of 80 knots which is over 90 mph. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #33:

Underwater he can swing his arms around fast enough to produce a rotor effect in Incredible Hulk #138:

He can actually perform surprisingly agile swordplay in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #92:

A point-blank ambush by Wolverine is deftly blocked by Savage Hulk in Wolverine Origins #28:

Savage Hulk is one of the few people who's easily snatched Cap's shield throw, from Avengers vol.3 #75:

Jack of Hearts remarks, "It's impossible! Nothing alive can move that fast!" From Incredible Hulk #214:

Speedsters like Quicksilver get swatted away in Incredible Hulk #175:

Here, a temporarily in control Banner, ends up using his strength to vibrate a chemical sample "thousands of times faster than the centrifuge could" in Captain America & Falcon #12:

One of Savage Hulk's most defining characteristics is his ability to make gargantuan leaps that cross miles, from Incredible Hulk #3:

Which isn't surprising considering he's been measured at 473 mph in Incredible Hulk Annual 2000:

He travels faster than jetliners and has crossed the China sea here in Incredible Hulk #5:

Even more than that, he has crossed the entire Pacific Ocean by jumping from isle to isle in Tales to Astonish #68:

Which may seem nonsensical but his transcontinental leaping abilities reappear in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #24:

A Wakandan experiences this firsthand noting, "Bruce jumped nearly a mile up into the sky, at an angle that, once it decayed -- would bring him down hundreds of miles from where we left mere seconds before!" Which is topped by another leap that covered "nearly a thousand miles this time" in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #33:

He can overtake a fighter jet with a leap "like it was standin still" in Incredible Hulk #206 and 258:

He's caught up to missiles with his leaps in Tales to Astonish #61:

And intercontinental rockets in Incredible Hulk #117:

Savage Hulk makes it to the top of Mount Olympus in a single leap in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:

Hulk performs a Thunderclap with such force, the pressure from the sonic boom sends cars and people (through concrete walls) flying:

The amount of speed Hulk would require would be dozens that of the speed of sound. There is absolutely no way someone of the Hulk's stature can perform such a feat moving at normal or even 10 to 100 times faster. It would have to be tremendous. It is absolutely impossible for the Hulk to perform a feat with strength alone, not accompanied with the proportional acceleration of the object (his hands) as well. source: (SlimJ87D

The Hulk leaps to escape velocity, into outer space in Incredible Hulk #254:

"For an object to escape the earths atmoshphere, it must have an initial velocity of Mach 34. Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_velocity. For Hulk to perform such a feat, his legs would have to accelerate and propel someone of his weight, which is approximately 2000 pounds, at even greater speeds than so. It is absolutely impossible for the Hulk to perform a feat with strength not accompanied with the proportional acceration of an object (his body) as well." source (SlimJ87D

Objects to the moon:

Here, Savage Hulk literally picks up and throws the gigantic Fin Fang Foom straight to the Moon in Hulk Vs Fin Fang Foom #1:

same thing here he must have to be able to move his hand faster than mach 10 to throw someone on the moon, because of his power.

And again, Savage Hulk tosses the Mandarin's monstrous minion into outer space in Incredible Hulk #107:

Savage Hulk doesn't just create these enormously powerful shockwaves by striking other objects. He can bring his hands together and create devastating thunderclaps. They've been described as "louder than a jet plane's sonic boom." From Incredible Hulk #4:

A single thunderclap shreds an entire battalion of tanks in Tales to Astonish #67:

How are the thunderclaps underwater? "In air, Hulk's clap is akin to a sonic boom. In the much denser medium of water... the effects arecatastrophic." From Hulk/Sub-Mariner '98:


Handling boulders he can create a thunderclap that is so powerful, the concussion sends Human Torch and Thing flying "helplessly into the air, as the Earth for miles around trembles and shudders." From Fantastic Four #26:


Even with only his bare hands, he's sent Iron Man flying in Mighty Avengers #22:


Savage Hulk sends Iron Man and Vision flying with a thunderclap in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #7:


Here he sends Blastaar and the armies of the Negative Zone flying in Sentry vol.2 #3:


Savage Hulk has wracked Hyperion with a single thunderclap -- that also reverberates for blocks and shatters Dr. Spectrum's prism in Defenders#4:


He's sent the Immortal Hercules flying and deafened him in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:


He's literally snuffed out Dormammu's head with a sneak attack from behind in Defenders vol.3 #5:




Defensively speaking, he can disperse the Sandman's sandstorm as done here in Incredible Hulk #113:


Or disperse Human Torch's flames. From Incredible Hulk #122, Fantastic Four #167 and 534:






Or blow away a villainous smoky villain -- along with every "tree, rock, blade of grass . . . above ground level . . . by a blast of air so powerful that it puts the fiercest hurricane in history to shame..." in Incredible Hulk Annual #5:



The "near hurricane force" winds generated by his thunderclaps can completely snuff out fires engulfing buildings in Defenders #23:



"The force of the Hulk's clap can be felt all the way to the ocean... and as the particles of It, the former Living Colossus, disperse over the wider Los Angeles area..." From Incredible Hulk #244:

That easiest question Hulk can think of? Hulk have faced powerful enemies. Hulk destroyed half of Manhattan with one single step.

Hulk have fought many enemies.

Hulk couldn't possibly be anymore awesome unless Hulk were spawn of Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee.

@Lvenger said:

Thanks for your input.

I'll explain more in a battle discussion sometime.

I just wanted to talk about ability moreso than skill. Skill is the training of abilities, the controlling of them. Skill means you can use your ability without relying on your state of emotion.

For fighting, Instincts, while 98 percent safe, is based more heavily on emotion which means the second the strength of your concentration on those feelings start to wane, your concentration on combat does as well. Also with instinct, if not focused as possible, in your haste you may misjudge something in a split second and make a mistake. Another downside to acting on instinct is it's harder to hold yourself back form giving your opponent an absolutely brutal beatdown.

And there is the issue of fights between characters of greatly mismatched power-levels either being fueled by PIS and/or having the stronger character not even begin to unleash their real power for fear of squashing the opponent like a bug, the strike moving so fast that the weaker opponent's brain could neither react fast enough nor would their body's have the power to move fast enough to avoid it.

Again, we can talk about all this in the Battle threads but my goal for this thread was merely to be informative.

Becoming WorldBreaker could quite possible be coolest thing Hulk has ever done. Hulk wonder if Superman can possibly copy that somehow? Hulk doubt it.

HULK GET MAD!! WHEN MAD, HULK IS STRESSED! WHEN STRESSED, HULK IS STRONGEST ONE EVER!!!

Anger is the most convenient way to get him stressed. its not the only way.

The rise in adrenaline from anger cause his blood pressure to rise until his body reaches its limit because the pressure starts to become unbearable. This which will cause him to grow stronger at cellular level, HIS DNA first, followed by the proteins that the DNA produces.

As we all know, Hulk strength corresponds to stress(anger-induced or otherwise)

A. In the beginning Bruce Banner/Hulk transformed at night, like a werewolf.

B.And let's not forget that Bruce Banner/Hulk used to change back and forth with every massive bombardment of gamma rays:

C. Then, for a time, he would transform into the Hulk when he got sufficiently stressed but when he was the Hulk he would revert back to banner when he was sufficiently stressed enough, for no easily explainable reason, much like a werewolf. Its a bit of a conundrum because stressing Hulk just makes him stronger and so he usually only transforms back into Banner when he's calm enough. It may seem like a continuity error but should not be seen since this is one of the earliest issues of the Hulk comicbook series when the character is just begining to learn about his powers/abilities. it should be also be noted that early on in the series, his transformations were usually triggered and sustained by stress but there were times when Banner he would revert from Hulk-form randomly.

D. And here's the Hulk we know and love today. Stress-dependent power-ups and all!

The first instance of his power increas in ability shows up in Tales to Astonish #59 and second is Tales to astonish #70:

When the Savage Hulk's adrenalin level escalates, causing his blood pressure to rise, which causes a corresponding escalation of strength. Thus, the madder he gets, the stronger he gets. The Thing finds this out the hard way in Fantastic Four #25:

Once again, Giant-Man's efforts to wear out the Savage Hulk in combat are thwarted by his strength amping in Fantastic Four #26:

TALES TO ASTONISH #64

"His limitless strength!"

"One figure strides forth... huge, invincible, with power so great it continually feeds upon itself... The Incredible Hulk!"

TALES TO ASTONISH #93

"But, such is the power of the incredible Gamma Rays that created him--the more the Hulk exertshimself, the stronger he becomes!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #112

"The Hulk cannot tire! The more he fights--the stronger he becomes!"

"Though the Incredible Hulk is subjected to deadly forces beyond mortal description, still does the indescribable Gamma Ray Energy within his massive frame continue to sustain him -- still does his mighty heart beat on, as his all-consuming rage increases with every passing second!"

"An incalculable will to live!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #141

"As the Hulk gets angrier--he becomes stronger--Stronger--EVER STRONGER!"

The Abomination was originally much stronger than the Savage Hulk -- and was even granted twice that level of strength by the Galaxy Master -- but that doesn't matter much when "all Hulk has to do is becometen times as mad!!" From Incredible Hulk #270:

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #198

"The Hulk's rage is almost all-consuming... for the madder Hulk gets--the stronger Hulk gets... and hisRage--and his Power--are Boundless!"

Not even the Leader's plasti-thene, the material that makes up the Hulk Killer Humanoid, can contain Savage Hulk in Tales to Astonish #117:

Adhesive X, which has never been broken by physical force once dried, ends up being shattered by a furious Savage Hulk in Captain America #257:

In the heat of battle, such amping proves more than Genis-Vell's estimations of force can handle when a blast twice as powerful as before proves ineffectual against a Savage Hulk who is "three times angrier" in Captain Marvel vol.3 #2:

Journey Into Mystery #112

I have weakened you! But I can't get weak! I grow stronger every minute!! Stronger! Stronger! stronger! Strong enouhg to crush even you!!

Amazing Spider-man #14

Your speed won't ave you for long! Remember-- you'll soon get tired--but the Hulk never tires!

The High Evolutionary's plasmatic beam meant to reduce him down to his component electrical charges barely scorches Gray Hulk. The High Evolutionary has to expend such power to get rid of him that he literally sends Gray Hulk from underwater Lemuria out to Nevada with a blast that "shakes the sea floor for hundreds of kilometers in all directions." Gray Hulk is knocked out but he survives in Avengers Annual#17:

Hulk has near infinite stamina. Savage Hulk can leap endless miles for a straight twenty-four hours without being tired in Fantastic Four #25:

Savage Hulk can swim for days tirelessly, from Incredible Hulk #261:

Master Mold evaluates him and remarks on his "almost unlimited stamina" in Incredible Hulk Annual #7:

He further proves that when for 50 straight minutes, he rains nearly 3000 blows onto a mystic barrier that thwarts Dr. Strange. And he is isn't even tired in Defenders #1:

But few feats of stamina match him wrestling Thor in an epic mercy match for an entire hour inDefenders #10:

He doesn't even really require food for sustenance -- he's hidden out on a frigate for three entire weeks inIncredible Hulk#133:

Professor Hulk possesses extraordinary endurance. His capacity for gaining a second wind is on full display here when he gets brought down by Troyjan weaponry and recovers with an angry start in Incredible Hulk #413:

Goading the world to attack him, the Maestro backs up his challenge by combating a Thor in the throes of Warrior Madness for an hour without giving any ground in Incredible Hulk #440:

One of the most impressive feats of stamina of any Hulk incarnation, Professor Hulk single-handedly fights the hordes of Hel for hours, then for days on end in Incredible Hulk #423:

Hulk instantly powers-up his DNA in proportion to stress, simultaneously renewing and strengthening it according to force that's put against it. and then from there, his cells renew their proteins within a seconds to minutes. He can survive any assualt and is immune to any disease or foreign substances that enter his body.

Hulk rapidly healing in Tales to Astonish #73:

The rate his healing factor repaired him would be amplified by his rage just like his strength would, from Incredible Hulk #340:

And it's his extraordinary healing factor that permits him to shrug off transmutation, from Incredible Hulk #363:

The supervillain, Glazier, a woman with the ability to transmute anything into glass, begins transmuting Bruce Banner but the Savage Hulk completely resists and reverses the transmutation in Incredible Hulk #262:

Savage Hulk shows extreme resistance to transmutation when High Evolutionary admits that his armor's devices cannot devolve him and only the immediate environment around him in Incredible Hulk #266:

the Savage Hulk has also demonstrated a vastly superhuman healing capacity, enabling him to regenerate body tissue (including internal organs) within seconds to minutes. This healing factor transferred to his cousin Jennifer Walters via blood transfusion saved her life and transformed her into the She-Hulk in The Savage She-Hulk #1:

Years later, Dr. Frankenstein's descendant verifies that "There is perhaps no other plasma on Earth with the regenerative properties that [his] has" in Monster-Size Hulk #1:

In incredible Hulk #294-295, An old former crime boss called Max Stryker (He's Max Stryker in this issue, Max Hammer in issue #295; maybe we could keep better track of our names if we made them less generic) hires Boomerang to kidnap Kate Waynesboro in order to force Bruce Banner to use an experimental gamma treatment on him to cure his cancer.

Banner has just finished his first test with the treatment, on a dog. For now, it only turns the dog green, but we all know how this will turn out.

Later, Banner returns to his lab with Kate, and they find that the criminal Max Hammer has "reformed" since his treatment and is now providing Banner's miracle gamma cure to the general public for free.

We knew how this was going to end right when it was introduced. First the dog owners from issue #294 show up with a story about how their dog went crazy and they had to put it down. Then Hammer turns into a monster.

And of course all the other recipients of the cure start to worry.

The only twist is that ROM shows up!

Hulk has had a broken leg since retuning from the Secret Wars but during the fight he becomes "savage" again and his leg heals.

Rom uses his neutralizer to reverse the treatment (which means those poor people are back to having cancer, being crippled, etc). But at this point Bruce has lost control of the Hulk and is brutally beating a now un-Hulkified Max Hammer. ROM tries to stop him, and his Neutralizer actually seems to restore some control...

Some of Hulk's greatest healing feats have occurred during his stint as the Professor Hulk. As noted earlier, Professor Hulk's healing factor proved capable of healing his guts being blown straight through by Trow-Mah in Incredible Hulk #394:

Here, Vector literally sheers the flesh off of Professor Hulk with an extended barrage and within a few panels, Professor Hulk grows it all completely back in Incredible Hulk #398:

Professor Hulk gets several holes blown right through his body by a cannon invented by Forge and in the space of pages he heals enough to renew his fight against his evil future self, the Maestro in Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect #2:

A gaping wound caused by Speedfreak's adamantium blades heals so quickly, that it literally heals around Professor Hulk's hand in Incredible Hulk #388 and #430:

In the space of panels, damage to his brain stem caused by Ant-Man is healed. Indeed, the healing factor works so quickly that Ant-Man can barely travel through the incisions he makes and has to resort to shrinking himself even further to make it past, from Incredible Hulk vol.2 #32:

So, of course he able to handle his neck being broken from Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect #1-2:

In one of the more gruesomely impressive feats of healing, Mindless Hulk literally rips off half his head and heals it back. From Incredible Hulk #446:

Being weakened by the dimensional forces flowing through him, Mindless Hulk gets shredded by a berserk Wolverine and Wendigo. But before Wolverine can even catch his breath, Mindless Hulk is back on his feet and uncharacteristically spares the two a severe beating. From Marvel Fanfare vol.2 #2:

The speed he heals at is shown here, when Mindless Hulk heals a cut from Deadpool's sword in the space of two panels in Deadpool #4:

Here, Gladiator pierces Mindless Hulk's chest with eye beams burning through to his insides. Mindless Hulk powers past the pain and defeats him anyway in Incredible Hulk 1997:

When Apocalypse transformed Mindless Hulk into the Horseman War, he had to tear out the full body implants that were bonded to his very flesh. From Incredible Hulk #457:

Here, Dr. Doom is able to perform open brain surgery when separating Banner from Hulk... while he's conscious, from Incredible Hulk vol.3 #5:

The Hulk is captured by scientists who are interested in getting a sample of the Hulk's blood. The scientists doesn't bother to sterilize the needle since, as he notes, no microbe on earth that can live for more than one microsecond in the Hulk's bloodstream./ The Hulk's old sidekick Jim Wilson is seriously hurt and in need of medical help. Rick Jones is cautious because Jim has AIDS. The Hulk grabs Jim and mentions that he is immune to AIDS in Incredible Hulk Annual #14/Incredible Hulk #388:

A dentist notes that he has no trace of any tooth decay and Banner notes that he appears to be immune to disease and infection in Incredible Hulk #288:

As his enemies have come to find out, it is often better to indirectly attack Savage Hulk as opposed to overpowering him with force. Accordingly, all sorts of chemicals and gases have been used on him. However, relatively speaking, his resistance is well over superhuman. Deadly nerve gas ends up reverting a Banner-controlled Hulk into Savage Hulk in Incredible Hulk #123:

Savage Hulk puts on an act revealing how ineffective ultra-tranquilizer boosters are in Incredible Hulk #132:

Savage Hulk resists special anesthesia utilized by Doc Sampson in Incredible Hulk #199:

Iron Man insists that he's pumped enough tranquilizer gas to "knock out Galactus" and even when combined with a strobe-light effect, Savage Hulk resists it in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #2:

Vapor morphs into searing acidic gases and enters Mindless Hulk's lungs. Mindless Hulk expels her with a mighty heave in Incredible Hulk #305:

The X-Men's attempts to use sleeping gas to calm him down fail in Incredible Hulk #455:

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents unleash nerve gas on him and they only endanger themselves in Iron Man vol.4 #20:

Gamma-irradiated Thallium brings the Green Scar to his knees but is burned out by his rage. From Heroes for Hire vol.2 #13 and Incredible Hulk vol.2 #110:

Unknown drugs and fatal amounts of nerve gas are burned off by Savage Hulk's immune system in Agents of Atlas #8:

A Thanosi amped by dimensional forces incinerates Savage Hulk, "sear[ing] the skin right from his bones" but he heals in moments to renew his assault in X-Man/Hulk '98:

Wolverine amped by Apocalypse as his new Horseman of Death manages to penetrate Savage Hulk's neck when he accidentally impales himself on his claws and the open wound is hammered repeatedly. A moment's pause, however, is all that's required for Savage Hulk's healing factor to regain his bearings and end the fight in Wolverine #145:

Even having his limbs directly phased into (and merged with) the ground by Kitty Pryde, his healing factor permits him to pull them out and expel the phased matter in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:

Vision's phasing powers are useless against a raging Savage Hulk in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #27:

Vision's phasing powers fail to stop Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk #300:

In fact, the Mindless Hulk's form is so powerful that he's actually rebounded the phasing effect back onto Vision causing feedback and actually entrapping Vision within his body in Incredible Hulk #323:

Hulk fights Dr. Strange while he was possesed by Zom, a demon who surpassed Dormammu and Umar in power!Zom Strange literally blew gaping holes through World War Hulk and he'd heal them in the space of panels, from World War Hulk #4:

On Sakaar, the alien Spikes were used to ravage countrysides. Although infecting Savage Hulk's very insides, he manages to tear them straight out of his body to free himself (the only one to do so) in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #99:

The more powerful Spike Elders usually control the Spikes but are so weakened that they require vast amounts of energy to restrain them. The only source they can rely on is the Savage Hulk's own energy and his ability to heal from their constant draining. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #102:

Being impaled and run through dozens of times doesn't even slow Savage Hulk down because of his healing factor in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #103:

Even a huge sword like Skaar's being stuck straight in his heart is simply pulled out with contempt due to Savage Hulk's healing factor in Skaar: Son of Hulk #12:

Hulk is also does not needing food or oxygen to sustain himself. He is SELF-SUSTAINING.

In Incredible Hulk #158, Savage Hulk can breathe and fight even in super-thin atmospheres:

But not even the pure vacuum of space can stop Savage Hulk from tearing apart a space ship in Incredible Hulk #111:

Having emerged from underwater, Banner discovers that his body can develop glands which produce an oxygenated perfluorocarbon emulsion that fills his lungs, equalizes pressure, permits him to breathe fluid, and avoids decompression and nitrogen narcosis. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #77:

S.H.I.E.L.D. data notes "that his mutation will somehow alter his body to adapt" even to a zero-atmosphere environment like outer space. FromIncredible Hulk vol.2 #90:

So hanging out on top of a space ship and fighting space pirates without a suit is not beyond his ability. From World War Hulk Prologue: Worldbreaker #1:

These adaptive evolutionary abilities are revisited in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #9:

And in incredible Hulk vol. 3 #7.1

3. HULK QUOTES:

The "limitless strength" thing is stated all throughout comics, repeatedly.

its said so often, I can't even list every last instance it's stated but here as a few examples......

TALES TO ASTONISH #63

"The Hulk has limitless strength."

TALES TO ASTONISH #64

"His limitless strength!"

"One figure strides forth... huge, invincible, with power so great it continually feeds upon itself... The Incredible Hulk!"

TALES TO ASTONISH #93

"But, such is the power of the incredible Gamma Rays that created him--the more the Hulk exerts himself, the stronger he becomes!"

TALES TO ASTONISH #97

"Limitless strength!!"

How much do speed rise when energy rises exponentially?

KE=1/2*(M)*(V)^2KE=1/2*(10g)*(5m/s)^2 1

25 J= 5g*(5m/s)^2

!25^2= 15,625

15,625 J=1/2*(10g)(V)^2

15,625 J= (5g)(V)^2

15,625 J/5g=(V)^2

3125=(V)^2 55.9 m/s =V

5(x)= 55.9 x= 11.18

As energy rises exponentially, speed is multiplied by eleven(and 18 hundreths).

4. The Theoretical possibility of limitless power:

Hulk, a living a nuclear pile, uses energy coming from any atomic mass in immediate proximity. And yes, there will always be energy present in some form.

Just as a star collapses from outside forces that close in on it and cause it to collapse due to the star runnning out of energy, when that happens to Hulk he takes in that energy to strengthen the bonds of his body, also know as his durabilty, as well as his kinetc energy capacbilities(energy of movement), which is how why he doesn't weaken and fall apart when he's pushed to his limit but instead grows stronger.

And Here's something else........

Bruce Banner comes to the realization that the Hulk is incurable in indestructible Hulk #1:

Once again, it should be noted that Hulk is incurable because he is indestructible. Bruce Banner himself notes this when he says" I've come to believe the Hulk is indestructible" in indestructible Hulk #2:

Hulk's Prominent Feats of Strength

And here is the Whole Scene of Hulk Pushing apart the two Spheres of Matter and Anti-matter :

First of all let me ask...

Which is greater?

A. the energy required to pull earth out its orbit of the sun

OR

B. the energy required to reverse the planet's orbit, therefore pushing back and overpowering the electromagnetic force the sun puts on the earth?

The answer is B.

If you would actually read it, this is exactly what the Hulk is shown doing in this comic scan:

Overpowering a field of energy endowed with sufficient power to change the orbit of a planet(Tales to Astonish #89)

Hulk has the power to move a planet at baseline.

The fact that the field strength needed to be increased is proof that Hulk was contesting that kind of power.

Even so, Hulk showed power to overcome a planet's kinetic energy, which is better than overcoming the force it has while it's just sitting there in its static state.

It takes 632 quadrillion 850 trillion megatons(6.3285*10^17) just to stop the earth's orbit. Hulk overpowered energy that could not only stop a planet's orbit but reverse it as well, which means Hulk was able to put out even more power than that.

The gravitational binding energy of earth is 224 nontillion joules(224,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000). There is 4 quadrillion 184 trillion joules per megaton(1 Mt = 4,184,000,000,000,000 J). Therefore, it takes 53 quadrillion 537 trillion 285 billion megatons to smash earth to smithereens(5.3537285*10^16). That's as much energy as the sun produces in a week! According to what Hulk has shown, Hulk can also destroy a planet at his baseline power level.

Do you know how fast a 1 ton object has to move to put out energy equal to earth's orbital energy?

Since it takes 632 quadrillion 850 trillion megatons or 2 decillion 700 nontillion joules(2.7*10^33)to stop earth's orbit then we just need input 1 ton as our mass value and solve for the speed.

2.7*10^33 Joules=½(1000 kg)(X meters per second)^2

2.7*10^33 Joules/500= 5.4*10^30 = 5,400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (dividing)

X^2= 5,400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (find the square root of 5 nontillion 400 octillion)

X=2,323,790,000,000,000 m/s (the value of X found!!!)

That's 2 quadrillion 323 trillion 790 billion meters per second!

The speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s. So how much faster than light is a 1 ton object with earth's orbital energy?

2,323,790,000,000,000 meters per second/299,792,458 meters per second=7,751,329.08781

That's 7 million 751 thousand 329 times faster than the speed of light(with some decimal points)!! An incredible speed!

Since the arm is only 6 percent of the body's mass the real speed would be:

6% of 1000 kg= 60 kg

2.7*10^33 Joules=½(60 kg)(X meters per second)^2

2.7*10^33 Joules/30=9*10^31= 90,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (dividing)

X^2= 90,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (find the square root of 90 nontillion)

X= 9.486833*10^15= 9,486,833,000,000,000 m/s(the value of X found!!!)

That's 9 quadrillion 486 trillion 833 billion meters per second.

9,486,833,000,000,000 meters per second/299,792,458 meters pers second= 31644668.6594

That's 31 million 644 thousand 668 times the speed of light!(with decimal points) An incredible display of Hulk's superhuman speed.

"Power" is the rate at which you do "work". Force/Energy flow per unit of time. Power is about the rate at which a force is transferred/travels. P= w/t.

"Work"is force moving over a certain amount of distance. W= F x d. # of Newtons X 1 meter= # of Joules

"Force" is mass multipled by an objects rate of motion. F= m x a. Measured in "Newtons".

The Difference Between Force and Power is: Power is about the amount of energy you produce and the transfer of that energy in a short amount of time. If a planet is moving 100 times the speed of sound and a car moves so fast that it matches the forces of the moving planet, who has more power? They produce the same amount of force but due to the car's superior speed, it is more powerful than the planet because it generated the same amount of force but traveled over the same distance in less time. That's the difference between Force and Power.

Hulk's body is a big AND fast machine like a car because of his great level of power.

The sun produces 90 megatons in a nanosecond and about 90 billion megatons in a second. That's the kind of power Hulk and Thor have. In fact, Hulk and Thor have exceeded this kind of power.

Planetary Orbital Speeds:

  • Mercury - 47.8725 km/sec = 107,000MPH= Mach 138
  • Venus - 35.0214 km/sec =78,350 MPH= Mach 102
  • Earth - 29.7859 km/sec = 66,630 MPH= Mach 85
  • Mars - 24.1309 km/sec = 54,000 MPH= Mach 70
  • Jupiter - 13.0697 km/sec =29,240 MPH= Mach 38
  • Saturn- 9.6724 km/sec = 21,640 MPH= Mach 26
  • Uranus - 6.8352 km/sec = 15,290 MPH= Mach 17
  • Neptune - 5.4778 km/sec = 12,250 MPH= Mach 15
  • Pluto (TNO, or dwarf planet)=10,700 MPH= Mach 14

At a second meeting years later, The Stranger recognize that Hulk was even stronger than before because once again, Hulk shrugs off the energy that the Stranger uses in an attempt to render him motionless in Marvel Two-In-One annual #2:

Here's Hulk doing a feat of great cosmic proportions once again:

Applying force to the space-time structure itself to prevent the Defenders from being absorbed into a fissure (Defenders #3)(with the size of the singularity estimated in about seven feets according to the Schwarzschild radius, then it's mass/gravitational attraction, by the equivalence principle, is thus equivalent to roughly two hundreds Earths),

Here's the Whole Scene of Hulk Pushing apart the two Spheres of Matter and Anti-matter (Marvel Team-Up Annual #2):

This feat involving matter and anti matter is akin to the "irrestible force meets the immovable object".

Anti-matter electrons are on opposite spin from normal matter's electrons and when they collide they build to their maximum attainable pressure, and then destroy each other and those forces of atomic destruction are converted into an energetic explosion, the matter and antimatter being destroyed in the process.

Antimatter realeases 100 percent of atom's energy. 1 gram of matter has the energy of 21 kiloton explosion. It impression that every fiber of Hulk's body is more powerful than this. Even more impressive is that Hulk's can withstand enoguh antimatter to destroy the earth.

Hulk's superhuman reaction speed & long distance travel speed.

Okay, first of all, Hulk is not slow. He may not be agile and skilled fighter(some of the time), but he is not slow at all. He's extremey fast.

To suggest that Spider-man, Daredevil, Wolverine, or someone other than a top tier powerhouse is as fast or faster than the Hulk is ludicrous.

Bullet dodging does not automatically mean you have bullet speed. The way you dodged it does matter.

The point is that dodging and such is not always about raw speed. Again, the way you dodge actually does matter.

A. Spider-man has early-warning thanks to his spider-sense and dodges the aim of his opponent strikes just before they fire and reach anywhere near full-speed since most of the times what he doges is too fast for him to out-race by either the speed at which he extends his limbs to make a strike of his own or flies forward like rocket.

Wolverine can do the same to missles that fly at him close enough (without the spider-sense), placing himslef in posistion to slash a missile, without moving his arm or body at missle-speed.

Dodging or diving into the aim of a projectle in the moment before its aim is right on its target does not mean your moving as fast as the object fired. Moving the moment just before the shot is fired is not about raw speed. Its just about being a step ahead of the opponent.

Being able to move your body in the same moment the projectile is already trained on its target and firing(or after its been fired) and be able to make it in time, is a true feat of speed.

When Hulk and Thor dodge and block super-fast projectiles, they do it with pure speed.

Hulk and Thor's bodily energy is on the level of a star or greater. The sun generates alot of energy at once but that is because it has billions upon billion of tons of hydrogen atoms to convert into gamma ray particles. Hulk and Thor can genrate the same levels of energy but with less mass. That means they are faster and therefore more powerful than the sun. Their bodies are simply vast storehouses of energy. They have force that moves at a rate so great that he can equal and surpass forces such as gamma ray bursts.

These guys are living atomic-bombs taken to the extreme!!! Muscular systems that contract with the power of nukes!

In an all out fight, unless you have the power to move with the speed of a nuclear explosion, which is light-speed or faster, you don't have chance of keeping pace with characters like Hulk and Thor through pure speed.

And its funny that some people think that the waves Hulk produces as the secondary force from clapping his hands are faster than the Hulk's actual hand movements.

Producing a near-nuclear force wave or a nuclear force wave from clapping means you're hands are moving much faster.

The same way an atomic bomb explodes and the fireball of nuclear energy pushes out a wave of air that is hundreds of times faster than sound that puts craters in the earth and causes most the widespread damage to buildings. 99 percent aren't killed by the atomizing radiation from a nuclear bomb since no one is usaully hit at point blank range, because otherwise they would be instantly vaporized, but they experience the secondary shockwave force and the left over radiation of the bomb.

B. And Spider-man catching missles with his web doesn't count as a speed feat for Spider-man

Spider-man used webbing. Doesn't count as a speed feat for Spider-man himself since Spider-man's body does not move at the same rate as his webbing. That's why he has to use webbing for that kind of thing(catching missles). Spider-man's body doesn't move at anywhere near missile-speed.

Spider-man's reaction time is good but it is certainly not missile-speed.

And so Thor and Hulk are just a very fast guys and do not have to rely on agility and fighting skill to dodge and block super-fast projectiles.

As for the Hulk while in battles....

Hulk has never said: "Oh, they're too fast for me! The Hulk has, however, expressed annoyance over cowardly hit-and-run tactics. Jumping within range to attack and then jumping out of range.

And keep in mind Hulk doesn't fight lower-level characters the same way he fights characrters on his power-level like Abomination, Thor, Hercules, Silvers Surfer, Jueggernaut, Hyperion, Sentry, etc.

When Hulk and Thor engage characters on the level of Spider-man, Wolverine and Thing , the punches they throw won't be same. The mere secondary air-shockwaves coming from a serious Hulk-punch/Thor-punch would be enough to kill those guys(like the secondary super-sonic shockwaves from nuclear explosions). Hulk and Thor wouldn't even have to make anywhere close to a direct hit in order to kill them. The secondary shockwave of an atomic bomb starts at about 184 Km/s or Mach 540 for a short distance before slowing down.

Hulk also lets himself get hit all the time because he's extremely tough in the first place and any apparent damage he may isn't permanent kind and won't destroy him and he becomes stronger according the strain of combat.

As for long distance travel speed......

Hulk super-powered muscles allow him to run and jump at speeds far greater than the finest human athlete.

His speed is limited by the strength of the ground. Once he reaches a certain speed his legs punch through and the destroy the ground around him which gives him no friction to run on.

Making tremedous jumps in orderto travel overcome this limitation partially but even with jumping he is similarly limited in long distance travel speed due to the overwhelming pressure his full strength puts on the ground.

Examples:

It would be perfectly reasonable to assume that a 8' tall, 1000+ lbs. monster would be a slow lumbering beast. However, from the beginning, Savage Hulk has always possessed superhuman speed belying his enormous size. His feats of agility and speed are typically accompanied by these sorts of descriptions, "Suddenly, moving with blinding speed which, seems impossible for one so huge..." FromIncredible Hulk #4:

"Power" is the rate at which you do "work". Force/Energy flow per unit of time. Power is about the rate at which a force is transferred/travels. P= w/t.

"Work"is force moving over a certain amount of distance. W= F x d. # of Newtons X 1 meter= # of Joules

"Force" is mass multipled by an objects rate of motion. F= m x a. Measured in "Newtons".

The Difference Between Force and Power is: Power is about the amount of energy you produce and the transfer of that energy in a short amount of time. If a planet is moving 100 times the speed of sound and a car moves so fast that it matches the forces of the moving planet, who has more power? They produce the same amount of force but due to the car's superior speed, it is more powerful than the planet because it generated the same amount of force but traveled over the same distance in less time. That's the difference between Force and Power.

Hulk's body is a big AND fast machine like a car because of his great level of power.

The same happens when he fights the Fantastic Four, "Moving with unbelievable speed for one so huge..." From Fantastic Four #12:

Later on when wrapped up by Mr. Fantastic, he escapes by spinning around like a tornado:

In his rematch with Thing he once again begins "moving with surprising speed for one so huge..." inFantastic Four #25:

He even ends up catching a fired artillery shell and "without stopping, in one smooth, continuous motion, he spins around, using the momentum of the hurtling shell to help propel his giant frame... he releases it" in Fantastic Four #26:

Special weapons and tactics squads try firing bazookas at Savage Hulk "but unfortunately, that 'somethin' isn't quite as fast as the Hulk!" From Iron Man #131:

He's snatched rockets and missiles out of the air in Giant-Size Defenders #2, Incredible Hulk #245 and Incredible Hulk vol.2 #101:

Savage Hulk has even batted artillery shells in Incredible Hulk #208:

And caught a S.H.I.E.L.D hovercar in incredible hulk #298:

Here he thwarts a crowd of minions, "moving with uncanny speed for one so huge, the green behemoth suddenly tears up an entire section of the stone floor" inTales to Astonish #76:

Savage Hulk confronts a barrage of artillery, "[m]oving with lumbering speed that belies his massive frame, the awesome Hulk thunders toward a gigantic boulder, a hundred feet away" inTales to Astonish#82:

He has been described as having "lightning-fast reflexes" in Marvel Feature #3 and Incredible Hulk#276:

Comet Man is amazed, "How can he be that big and move so fast?!" From Comet Man #3:

And His speed is remarked upon by his fellow Avengers as well in incredible Hulk #316:

Hulk catches Silver Surfer while he's in flight in Tales to Astonish #92:

Savage Hulk grabs his enemy "with a swiftness that defies belief!" From Incredible Hulk #264:

The Mandarin notes Hulk's incredible reflexes well in Incredible Hulk #107:

Doctor Doom is quick to note, "you are far more agile than I anticipated from one of your size!" FromIncredible Hulk #144:

Even the amazing Spider-Man throughout his career can only evade Savage Hulk for so long as shown early on in Amazing Spider-Man #120, and later on inPeter Parker: Spider-Man#14:

He can actually perform surprisingly agile swordplay in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #92:

A point-blank ambush by Wolverine is deftly blocked by Savage Hulk in Wolverine Origins #28:

Savage Hulk is one of the few people who's easily snatched Cap's shield throw, from Avengers vol.3 #75:

And just as easily, Joe Fixit-Hulk bats down tanks shells and catches Hawkeye's arrows and Spiderman's webbing in The Order #1, Hulk Smash Avengers #4 and Incredible Hulk #349:

Hulk smacks down projectiles from the Villain Boomerang before they could even explode in incredible hulk #274:

Speedsters like Quicksilver and Bluestreak get swatted away in Incredible Hulk #175, The Order #3, Last Hero standing vol 1. #1-5, and Incredible Hulk #369:

He even smacks down Peitro(Quicksilver) when he is possessed by a god in Mighty Avengers #23:

Hulk runs down and catches two soldiers wore armor (similar to Iron-Man) developed by Tony Stark and U.S. Armed Forces in Marvel Salutes the US Military #1-10:

One of Savage Hulk's most defining characteristics is his ability to make gargantuan leaps that cross miles, from Incredible Hulk #3&6 and Tales to Astonish #66 & 67, incredible Hulk #272-273, #274:

Which isn't surprising considering he's been measured at 473 mph in Incredible Hulk Annual 2000:

While tracking Savage Hulk's movement across the United States, Black Panther notes that he'll be in California in mere hours in Incredible Hulk#128:

He travels faster than jetliners and has crossed the China sea here in Incredible Hulk #5:

Even more than that, he has crossed the entire Pacific Ocean by jumping from isle to isle in Tales to Astonish#68:

The pacific ocean is 8,637 miles from north to south and 1,100 miles from east to west. Hulk shows he can jump thousands of miles in a single bound.

When jumping your horizontal speed and vertical speed occur simultaneosuly. Hulk can not travel horzontally and vertically seperately, since he can't fly. Vertical and horizaontal speed won't occur in speratly in a jump so he he will reach the maximum horizontal distance by the time he reaches the maximm vertical distance of the jump.

How long does it take to fall a mile?

18.1 seconds

Equation is t = √ (2d/g)

t = time = ?

d = distance = 1 mile = 1609.344 metres

g = acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 metres per second

2

t = √ (2d/g)

t = √ (2 x 1609.344 / 9.8)

t = √ (2 x 164.2187755)

t = √ 328.437551

t = 18.1228461

This answer does not include any effects of drag.

Hulk travels these great distances while still in the air and once his jump is finished he merely starts dropping down to the ground, acceleration no longer taking place in the horizontal or vertcial direction. The jump couldn't have taken 18 seconds or anywhere close to that because if it did hulk would have hit the ground or been close to htting it by the time he traveled the distance that he did. Even if the jump took all of 18 seconds, (obviously they didn't) traveling 1000 miles in 18 seconds is still 260 times the speed of sound(Even then, he'd have to travel upwards and then travel horizontally which requires the power of flight).

Which may seem nonsensical but his transcontinental leaping abilities reappear in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #24:

And these leaps only require "scarcely more than a twitch" of his muscles in Incredible Hulk #314:

A Wakandan experiences this firsthand noting, "Bruce jumped nearly a mile up into the sky, at an angle that, once it decayed -- would bring him down hundreds of miles from where we left mere seconds before!"Which is topped by another leap that covered "nearly a thousand miles this time" in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #33:

100 miles per second is mach 472. 1000 miles per second is mach 4,792. 1 mach is equal to he speed of sound. Hulk jumped going hundreds and thousands of times the speed of sound with ease.

Hulk has been shown to easily jump vertically at a speed of mach 24, earth's escape velocity, which is the same as 18,000 miles per hour or 5 miles per second. By the time Hulk had traveled 1 mile vertically he had also traveled 1000 miles horizontally, all in the time of 1 second or a fraction of a second.

Due to gravity, an object starts dropping after one second. The object will drop 10 meters in one second and will drop faster every second. Speed is required to cover long distances by jumping before gravity pulls you down in one second. Jumping ability is all about power.

He can overtake a fighter jet with a leap "like it was standin still" in Incredible Hulk #206 and 258:

He's caught up to missiles with his leaps in Tales to Astonish #61 and incredible hulk #5:

And intercontinental rockets in Incredible Hulk #117:

And aircrafts in Incredible Hulk 157-158, incredible hulk #298 and incredible #Hulk 409:

Savage Hulk makes it to the top of Mount Olympus in a single leap in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:

The Hulk leaps to escape velocity,into outer space in Incredible Hulk #254 and Incredible Hulk Annual#10:

"For an object to escape the earths atmoshphere, it must have an initial velocity of Mach 34. Reference:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_velocity. For Hulk to perform such a feat, his legs would have to accelerate and propel someone of his weight, which is approximately 2000 pounds, at even greater speeds than so. It is absolutely impossible for the Hulk to perform a feat with strength without the proportional acceration of an object (his body) as well." source (SlimJ87D

Hulk rushes the police in Incredible Hulk #206-207:

Jack of Hearts remarks, "It's impossible! Nothing alive can move that fast!" From Incredible Hulk #214:

And again, Hulk frequently uses his super-leaps to very quickly close the distance between him and his foes as shown In incredible Hulk in #117 and mostly of every Hulk comic:

Hulk is also a good swimmer. it has been noted that he can swim at a speed of 80 knots which is over 90 mph. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #33:

He's even battled Namor many times in the deepest parts of the ocean incredible Hulk #118:

Incredible Hulk Annual # 002

Narrator : ...possessing the mightiest muscles of any living mortal... He performs a seemingly impossible feat ! By sheer brute power alone, by actual muscle control, her forces his flying body to lift itself up, over the solid stone trestle !

What Makes The Hulk "Incredible"-EDIT

1. HULK'S POWER-SET

Debunking myths about the Hulk's powerset part 1:

To those who say "Hulk can't have limitless power because he doesn't have limitless anger power":

The Hulk is not dependent on his own strength. Some people mistakenly think the statement "madder he gets, stronger he gets" means that Hulk is using limitless power he already has to gets unlimited power, which makes no sense. Why would Hulk need to increase in power if he already has it all in the first place? Why would you grab power if you had it all already?

Hulk increases power when his body is pressed toward it physical limit, either by the pressure he or others put on him. His power activates in instance that the body is being overtaxed by it's own activity or overtaxed by other outside forces and meets those demands by growing stronger to in order to avoid death. The Hulk doesn't increase in strength just because he wants to. The act of Hulk drawing universal atomic energy into himself is only a matter of fulfilling his body's own personal need.

Statements such as this sum up the Hulk's power nicely:

TALES TO ASTONISH #63, 64 & 65

"His limitless strength!"

"One figure strides forth... huge, invincible, with power so great it continually feeds upon itself... The Incredible Hulk!"

TALES TO ASTONISH #93

"But, such is the power of the incredible Gamma Rays that created him--the more the Hulk exertshimself, the stronger he becomes!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #112

"The Hulk cannot tire! The more he fights--the stronger he becomes!"

"Though the Incredible Hulk is subjected to deadly forces beyond mortal description, still does the indescribable Gamma Ray Energy within his massive frame continue to sustain him -- still does his mighty heart beat on, as his all-consuming rage increases with every passing second!"

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #141

"As the Hulk gets angrier--he becomes stronger--Stronger--EVER STRONGER!"

In conclusion,

Hulk's power is not centered around his anger but stress. being pushed toward his limits. Anger makes stress. Banner/Hulk being pushed towards his limits makes him reach for the proportionate amount of energy needed to sustain himself.

You start making Hulk uncomfortable with a significant amount of bodily stress and he gets stronger, grabbing at the endless power of the universe, the fabric of reality, which is known as atoms and the energy of atoms.

Being pushed towards his physical limits such as when he seriously exerts himself (like when he fighting really hard and/or getting angry) or gets hit a by a powerful enough force then the Hulk is made to grow stronger in proportion to that on a genetic level.

This extra-chemical process not only means that the Hulk has limitless in strength but is indestructible as well where it counts most, on the genetic level.

His strength and invulnerability increase, on the genetic level, and regenerates new tissue corresponding to the newfound power of his genes.

You wouldn't know it by his appearance to the naked human eye but Hulk's power has little to do with just mass. It is the the power of universal atomic energy, gamma ray energy, drawn to his body that gives the added mass such a great attraction force, producing the super-dense bio-mass, giving Banner/Hulk his great superhuman strength and equal durability.

As a side-note: When it comes to superpowers, secondary powers are the most important. If you're not immune to your own powers, able to withstand your own rebounding force, your body falls apart.

Debunking myths about the Hulk's powerset part 2:

Another myth about Hulk's stress-proportionate power increase is that that it "takes time" to response to stress. This is certainly not the case.

The whole point of Hulk being such an awesome foe is that his strength is drawn from a limitless source and increases simultaneously, right along with whatever force that puts a significant amount of pressure on his body.

The Hulk amps mid-battle, that's what just he does, instantly increasing to the proportion of the stress his body takes. Hulk does not have to wait around all day to increase in strength. That would be ridiculous and someone who have took down the Hulk a long time ago. The Hulk would be dead already if his foes needed to give him time to adjust to whatever they threw at him.

Hulk doesn't need to "take time". When put under enough pressure, he has the energy resources to meet the demands of survival and immediately adapts. Where did you get the idea that Hulk power increase "takes time"?

His DNA powers up instantly. Its the rest of the body that takes time.

DNA is the protein factory of the body. The DNA is what produces all other organic matter. Once Banner/Hulk's DNA powers-up it has to form new proteins matter for all the organic systems, replacing all the old with the new.

Of course, it's completely biologically impossible for the DNA to assemble all the body diverse proteins that belong to the different organ systems in no time at all.

The Hulk forms all the proteins quickly,but no matter how quick, it's definitely not ever an instant process.

The total transformation process does take time but even that doesn't matter as long as Banner/Hulk's DNA remains intact through it's continuous intake of stress-proportionate power, it can keep reproducing all that stuff.

jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj

2. HULK'S POWER-LEVEL

Hulk's power-level part 1:

You guys still arguing about the Grey Hulk smashing a planet-sized asteroid? How can anyone think a wussy little rocket like the one he used, launched him hard enough to destroy a planet? The asteroid was twice a big as earth. You think his puny rocket pack had that kind of power? It was pretty contrary to that if you looked at the comic. The thing even disintegrated upon exiting earth's atmosphere. If the rocket was so powerful and only relied on the mass the object it hurled, then the Hulk would't have even been needed in that situation! If that was truly the case, then they could have simply used some other object that weighed half a ton and had enough density.

Is it that some can't except that Grey Hulk is just that strong? Maybe it's because your'e determining the character's power level by what is said, out of context, in the character guide book.

I remember when Bruce Banner was seperated from the Hulk with Doc Sampson's nutrient-bath treatment during the mid- 1980s and Banner described Hulk's strength as 100 ton at the least.That statement was soon put in a character guidebooks, out of context at times, and applied to others character as well.

This led to some people mistakenly thinking that Hulk at base level, meaning his level of strength he has before he starts to increase it in the heat of battle, was 100 tons(and other characters as well).

Those people are obviously mistaken for two reasons:

1. From the beginning, the Hulk has always been shown to be the equivalent of a vastly powerful nuclear weapon that could grow in power as needed, making the military might of the entire world look like a joke by comparison. In the years before the Hulk has overpowered force equal to the sun, devastating dimensions, Holding spatial singularities, punching through time-storms, smashing buildings made to withstand massive nuclear assault, withstanding planet devastating assaults, gamma-bombs and other nukes at point blank range, etc.

2. The comic that had Banner make the comment about lifting 100 tons:

Banners exact words were : "This is the way I-- or should i say it-- looks today. Half-a-ton in weight, able to lift two hundred times that much".

"Quite a change from this fellow, this is a representation of how the hulk looked in the first few hours of his existence. in addition to the obvious difference in color, he was smaller, less powerful and less human in appearance. More brutish."

Now, do you think the statement above was truly an accurate measurement of Hulk power or merely said to give us the general idea that Hulk can put out force that is very far out of proportion to his body weight because he is inhumanly strong?

The image above isn't the only indication of how powerful Hulk is. Hulk is characterized as being an extremely atomic bomb in human form from the very beginning:

So powerful is that the Hulk that on of the first times the military barely manages to capture him, he must be held with a cage of anti-matter beams inTales to Astonish #78:

Army scientist, Dr. Zaxon is incapable of even measuring the Hulk's vast power with a geiger counter. "I can hardly believe these readings! He's a veritable blast furnace of limitless organic energy! There is no way to even measure is strength!" From Tales to Astonish #78:

The power of the Hulk is even shown through the power of the gamma ray energy which fuels him. Now one wouldn't think Banner would be such a prolific inventor. But he definitely is. He invented the Gamma Ray Gun, capable of repelling the Toad Men's entire alien fleet in Incredible Hulk #2 and recounted decades later inOver the Edge #3:

The power of gamma rays on full display here as the Hulk's "gamma-spawned might" can also give light to an "eons-dark cosmos" in Incredible Hulk #126:

The Russian super-villain, Gremlin, invents a Devastator cannon designed to emit a beam of near-nuclear energy which is amplified "almost infinitely." Savage Hulk survives it anyway in Incredible Hulk#188-89:

Once again, we can see the Hulk's power easily dwarfs any nuclear assault that earth can muster. Here he shown ripping through a bunker designed to withstand the explosion of many thousands of megatons in magnitude. "Against the force of the gamma-energized Hulk.... it fares not well at all inincredible Hulk #177:

100 tons may be impressive to humans but when you think about it it's not that much and it's the very least that the Hulk, a vastly powerful superhuman, can do. You hear that? "THE LEAST"! This lines up with first reason I have stated above. If the Hulk were really that weak then he just wouldn't be the Hulk.

Obviously the Hulk, even the grey one, is stronger than some people think. Train engines can carry hundreds and thousands of tons. You really think the Hulk is no better than a train engine?! Hulk's more powerful than an atomic bomb!! Of course, he's better than 100 men or a train engine! If you calculated exactly how much the Hulk could lift or how much force he could press with at base levels you'd be adding a lot of zeros behind the front number. You'd have to use scientific notation to calculate Hulk's power while it's not even growing.

Even Ironman is not so weak as to be limited to 100 tons. That's right! Ironman's full power, all his juice concentrated in one blow, is able to produce the force of a megaton bomb, your average mountain-crumbling nuclear explosion.

That doesn't even begin to top the Hulk! The sun is a trillion megatons bombs exploding every second. A gamma ray burst produces as much energy as the sun does in it's entire billion year life cycle in milliseconds to a few hundred seconds. That's about 31 nontillion 360 octillion megatons. That is some real fire-power!

Yet some think that Hulk's full strength before he starts increasing in strength in the heat of battle, is 100 tons? That's pretty laughable. You don't even have to be a comicbook-geek who's read every issue of every comic to know that doesn't make any sense.

We can blame that bit of ridiculousness on whoever's been in charge of the Marvel character guide-book for the past three and a half decades.

Want some additional proof that Hulk has no trouble at all pressing hundreds and thousands of tons?Here you go:

The pressure Savage Hulk's strength can exert is so powerful, Savage Hulk "[a]lmost effortlessly stops the speeding train with the sheer gamma-ray power of his iron-muscled body!" From Fantastic Four #26 and incredible hulk #255:

Incredible Hulk #122 and Thor #385 (this time as a tremendous bludgeon):

He completely stops a speeding subway train to the face in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #56:

To give you a sense of scale as to amount of effort required for these lifting feats, here it is described that the weight of forty tons, "might as well weigh as many ounces!" From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #22:

A calm Savage Hulk casually pulls along "thousands of tons" of logs and lifting a train in Incredible Hulk#274:

He's lifted up entire castles as they crumble and collapse on themselves in Incredible Hulk #108 and 120:

In a weakened state, Hulk presses a mountain range that dwarfed the Andes in Secret Wars #4:

And even more evidence that Hulk was weakened, it took him days to heal from a broken leg, something which he would normally heal from within only a moment or a few minutes.

Again, in a weakened state, Hulk stops a planet from destruction by shifting the alignment of its plates in Incredible Hulk vol 2 #102:

once again, in a weakened state, Hulk has withstood being drained of his energy by suns eaters for seven hours straight! (Incredible Hulk vol.2 #99) :

...

Here, he tears open the side of a mountain base in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #64:

And Hulk has also opened a fissure in the earth in Incredible Hulk #130-135:

And he's also stopped and close a rift using only his hands in incredible Hulk #203:

Hulk hauls an entire island all the way back to the mainland in Hulk Magazine #18:

An apt measure of strength, Savage Hulk's punches are some of the most powerful in comics. Here, Savage Hulk hammers down an entire landscape despite it being supported by enormous pylons in Marvel Treasury Edition #25:

Hulk's power-level Part 2:

Marvel's handbooks don't do a good job in defining power-levels like it's a weight lifting competition.

By what's shown in the comics, the weights that the big powerhouses could press would need to be expressed with scientific notation..... Meaning that the of weight they can press is UNEARTHLY. Powerhouses like this don't often run into everyday objects they have trouble lifting so Instead they shatter planets with a punch, overcome the power of the sun, withstand planet splitting impacts, hold spacial singularities, close rifts in space-time by punching at them, etc.

The classification name of “100 class” is barely explained and only came into use around the mid 1980’s but here it simply put: the classification of "100 class" applies to Anyone who can press an amount of tonswithin the triple digits and beyond. Whether you only have the bare minimum strength of 100 men(being able to lift 100 tons) or the strength of a trillion or more, all of that fits within 100 ton class strength. It's a very general category that holds more than one subcategory of power-levels.

So now we know! The "100 class" is for those who can lift that weight or above.

Its a horrible way to classify ALL power-levels and Marvel barely explains their own class system so that we can understand it in the first place. When classifying characters power-levels, if you have to do it in more that one sentence then you aren't doing it right. The reader will probably be confused or won't understand right away with no problem at all.

Every other piece of information tells you to throw the stupid "100 class" classification out the window and forget about it. Readers, do yourself a favor, ignore the stupid "100 class" thing, okay?

We've seen Hulk, Thor, Hercules and others of their level doing things far better than 100 tons or whatever. A train engine can carry hundreds and thousands of tons. You believe Thor is not more powerful than big man-made locomotive? or that he's no powerful than a mob of 100 people? That's just ridiculous.

In the universe of comicbooks you can:

A. Lift average amount of weight

B. Lift like a top Olympic-level athlete

C. Have the strength of a mob of men

D. Be as powerful as a locomotive(lifts hundreds to thousand of tons)

D. Have the power of a nuclear power-plant.

E. Are as powerful or more powerful than a star and can destroy a planet with your bare hands.

F. Can devastate galaxies.

G. Can devastate large dimensions , y'know, the big portions of the universe so large they make a galaxy look like a grain of sand. Dimensions are so big, they're even referred to as "little universes".

Also, for those who don't know, here's something to help shed light on the confusion of differing power-levels among the most powerful characters:

HERE ARE THE SUBCATEGORIES OF POWER-LEVELS WITHIN THE BROADER CATEGORY OF "100 CLASS" STRENGTH:

Low tier-Powerhouse: typically more powerful than a locomotive(because train engines can carry hundreds and thousands of tons) but nothing beyond that.

For example, to directly indicate the limits of this power level: Characters on this power-level can't take anything above anti-tank missiles, meaning they aren't tough enough withstand or exert forces on the magnitude of a nuclear bomb and beyond. Character examples: The Thing and Namor, some of the earliest strongmen of Marvel..

Mid tier-Powerhouse:

character example: Ironman is this because he's powered by a miniaturized nuclear reactor but his power in not quite as great as Thor and the Hulk. Using 100 percent of his power he can achieve power of nuclear proportions for a few seconds but it is still dwarfed by the much more powerful, Hulk and Thor.

Top tier-Powerhouse/Planet-buster: More powerful than an atomic bomb. Some are even classified on this level as the least of their power.

Character examples: Hercules, Hulk, Thor, Silver Surfer, Superman and superman archetypes,etc.

Those within this category who excel beyond it would most obviously be Hulk Thor, Hercules, Hyperion, Gladiator, Silver Surfer, Sentry, Molecule man, etc.

Galaxy buster- Can destroy galaxies.

character examples: Odin, Zeus,Thor(Odin force), Galactus, Celestials, Beyonder, Molecule man(when pushed hard enough), Hulk(when pushed hard enough) or Sentry(when pushed hard enough),etc.

3. HULK'S REMARKABLE FEATS OF STRENGTH

First of all let me ask...

Which is greater?

A. the energy required to pull earth out its orbit of the sun

OR

B. the energy required to reverse the planet's orbit, therefore pushing back and overpowering the electromagnetic force the sun puts on the earth?

The answer is B.

If you would actually read it, this is exactly what the Hulk is shown doing in this comic scan:

Overpowering a field of energy endowed with sufficient power to change the orbit of a planet(Tales to Astonish #89)

Hulk has the power to move a planet at baseline.

The fact that the field strength needed to be increased is proof that Hulk was contesting that kind of power.

Even so, Hulk showed power to overcome a planet's kinetic energy, which is better than overcoming the force it has while it's just sitting there in its static state.

It takes 632 quadrillion 850 trillion megatons(6.3285*10^17) just to stop the earth's orbit. Hulk overpowered energy that could not only stop a planet's orbit but reverse it as well, which means Hulk was able to put out even more power than that.

At a second meeting years later, The Stranger recognize that Hulk was even stronger than before because once again, Hulk shrugs off the energy that the Stranger uses in an attempt to render him motionless in Marvel Two-In-One annual #2:

Here's Hulk doing a feat of great cosmic proportions once again:

Applying force to the space-time structure itself to prevent the Defenders from being absorbed into a fissure(Defenders #3)(with the size of the singularity estimated in about seven feets according to the Schwarzschild radius, then it's mass/gravitational attraction, by the equivalence principle, is thus equivalent to roughly two hundreds Earths),

Planetary level threats in Marvel and DC comics a have been shown doing this so the Hulk isn't the only one who the black hole trick wouldn't work on. It won't work on Thor, Hulk, Hercules, Silver Surfer, Superman, the supermen archetypes or of those in the planet. buster category of power. These characters have been shown shatter they force of a spatial singularity with strength that is superior to them. There's a reason why those of the planer-buster powerlevel don't hope to win a fight by throwing their opponent of the same powerlevel into a black hole or the sun: IT DOESN'T WORK ON THEM!!!

Hulk breaking up the space-time continuum(Incredible Hulk #135)

Classic Dr. Strange's mystic barrier can't withstand the punches of "the most powerful creature on the face of the Earth," from Defenders #18:

Savage Hulk's punches against the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak cause such painful feedback against classic Dr. Strange, he loses concentration and gives Savage Hulk an opportunity to escape inIncredible Hulk #207:

Even the Collector's most powerful forcefield is shattered by Savage Hulk's punches in Incredible Hulk#198:

The power of his fists has been directly compared to many indescribable forces, including Mjolnir. Here, "the Incredible Hulk has done what no other power save Thor's hammer could have done!" FromAvengers #5:

And no description of mine can supplant the comic's own description here when Savage Hulk confronts a forcefield of Deviant technology powered by the Sacred Flame: "That something -- anything -- could grip hold of an energy field should be impossible! But the Hulk grabs hold just the same! The field begins to stretch like a physical thing in his grasp -- as he pushes and pulls with ever-increasing might, until -- the barrier collapses!" From Incredible Hulk #242:

Ripping off a powerful device designed to fight against the Celestials(Incredible Hulk #242)(levelling down, if it could withstand power proportional toKubik's, many orders of magnitude inferior to the Celestials, that's already significant)

Savage Hulk frees himself from the Stranger's telepathic commands in Tales to Astonish #89:

Hulk destroys the armor of Onslaught, a foe who's power was on par with the Celestials, with a shot delivered from the ground without any leverage in Onslaught: Marvel Universe #1:

In Marvel: The End #4, the Celestial Order powered by the Heart of the Universe, one-shot Namor and Dr. Strange while Savage Hulk shrugs off those same blasts:

Hulk has also tanked a shot form emma frost , who had 1/2 of the phoenix force, and showed no Sign of damage whatsoever in Avengers vs. X-men #11:

Again, as Hulk is powered by gamma radiation, many opponents have attempted energy draining to defeat him. Most attempts fail because of his ability to amplify his power through rage. Dr. Zaxon's draining ray fails for this reason in Tales to Astonish #79:

Aliens with technology formidable enough to stagger classic Dr. Strange's seraphim shields and ensnare Silver Surfer use a Starwheel machine to trap and drain the Defenders. Only Savage Hulk is able to power through the draining and cause enough feedback to destroy the Starwheel and free them all in Defendersvol.2 #8:

An energy-synthicon chain begins draining Savage Hulk but with increased rage, he overpowers it inIncredible Hulk #182:

A bio-kinetic energy absorption unit fails to drain gamma radiation in Web of Spider-Man #69:

Mimic drains levels of gamma radiation from a weakened Savage Hulk that prove fatal to him, but not to Hulk inIncredible Hulk #161:

Draining via magic is similarly fruitless. Here, the Spirit Stone of Pariah drains Savage Hulk as his Banner side fights to permit it to drain his lifeforce, but realizing that Pariah would be a threat to the world, he lets Savage Hulk take over who immediately escapes Pariah's grip and overpowers the Spirit Stone in Incredible Hulk#268:

The demon, Chernobog, finds this out the hard way and is overloaded by Savage Hulk's power in this flashback to the past in Incredible Hulks#621:

With a clever assist from Goldbug to induce panic and anger, Savage Hulk overloads Tyrannus' draining devices in Incredible Hulk #241:

Arm'Chedon's Troyjan technology draws Savage Hulk's gamma radiation with his permission but at such high levels, his son disintegrates from the procedure, while Savage Hulk is completely unharmed in Incredible Hulk#464:

Because Mindless Hulk was so unrestrained when he first emerged, numerous individuals attempted to drain his gamma energy. All met with failure. Rom's neutralizer drains another gamma-irradiated being but does nothing to stave Mindless Hulk's strength in Incredible Hulk #296:

Energy draining chains are snapped by Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk #307:

Energy lances that drained Klaatu, a monstrous entity that could feed on planets and stars, are torn free from him by the Mindless Hulk who resists their energy draining in Incredible Hulk #307:

An energy-draining field created by missiles fail to siphon enough gamma energy and he shakes them off inIncredible Hulk #454:

Randau, an alien who has challenged and nearly bested Terrax with his energy draining, completely fails to drain Savage Hulk's energy here inIncredible Hulk#103:

The superhuman parasite Half-Life can't drain enough strength to overpower Gray Hulk in Incredible Hulk#334:

World War Hulk's increased power was a result of him harnessing more gamma energy. And Darwin -- a mutant who acclimated to Hela's and the M'Kraan Crystal's power -- cannot drain his energy off in World War Hulk: X-Men #3:

He walks right through gamma inhibitor cannons being fired on him in Iron Man vol.4 #20:

Rulk's completely absorbed the Savage Hulk's gamma radiation and reverted him to Banner. He fails to drain enough gamma radiation from World War Hulk to even knock him unconscious, from Hulk #24:

And any such notion that the Gray Hulk can never achieve the heights of other Hulks' strength levels should be dismissed in the face of the following infamous feat. Launched by experimental anti-magnetic jet-propelled rocket springs, the Gray Hulk busts apart an asteroid measured to beTWICE the size of the Earth in Marvel Comics Presents #52:

Gray Hulk definitely does not lack in striking power as he manages to best the Abomination. "On paper, the Abomination may, technically, be the more powerfulof the two. The [Gray] Hulk never read those papers." From Incredible Hulk Annual #15:

Without any sort of leverage against Glorian's bands, a power reality warper, Gray Hulk still musters enough strength to break free in Incredible Hulk #355:

When push comes to shove, the Gray Hulk is more than capable of wrestling Wonder Man toe-to-toe in Hulk Smash Avengers #4:

Hulk pushes two spheres of matter and antimatter apart, the inertia force-field being greater than a neutron star(Marvel Team-Up Annual #2)

One of the most powerful entities Marvel ever published, a living cosmic cube, the Beyonder, famously commented, "You are nothing but raging power personified! An infinity of power -- with no finite elementinside!" From Secret Wars II #2:

The Mad Titan Thanos famously shared such trepidation when faced with the assault of a Power Gem wielding Champion, "In many ways I assume this is what it would be like battling the Terran behemoth, the Hulk. A conflict I've sought to avoid over the years." From Thanos Quest#1:

Various villains have recognized the Hulk's power. Apocalypse takes great notice of the Hulk's energies as they "may give [him] power over the Celestials themselves." From Incredible Hulk #456:

Even the impossibly powerful Celestials recognize the Hulk's power. Gamiel the Manipulator searched for (and found in Hulk), "evolution's crowning achievement -- the pinnacle of what your species will become..." From Marvel Monsters: Devil Dinosaur #1:

Doc Sampson finds that, through his own battery of tests, "There truly seems to be no limit to the Hulk's strength!" From Incredible Hulk #228:

Here's Hulk overwhelming a quantum molder designed by Ultron to liquify and mold adamantium. During the fight Mad thinker, through mathematical formula, shows us once again what is already known to many, that Hulk's strength is incalculable in Indestructible Hulk #1:

Bruce Banner comes to the realization that the Hulk is incurable in indestructible Hulk #1:

Once again, it should be noted that Hulk is incurable because he is indestructible. Bruce Banner himself notes this when he says" I've come to believe the Hulk is indestructible" in indestructible Hulk #2:

Even the mutated super-genius, Leader, realizes, "The tests are worthless! There's no way to measure his strength! There is nothing he cannot do! I cannot build a device powerful enough to test him with!" FromTales to Astonish #73:

It also shown that Hulk easily withstands extreme temperatures (Tales to astonish #73, Tales to astonish #80, incredible Hulk #105)

Taking a gamma-bomb at point -blank range, a bomb so powerful, regular nuclear bombs are a joke in comparison to it. (Tales to astonish #62)

The Hulk escapes from Dr. Doom's castle and takes a gamma bomb with him that Dr. Doom was going to use on Latveria. Dr. Doom detonates the bomb while the Hulk has it strapped to his back and the Hulk survives the blast in Incredible Hulk #144:

In the past, bombarding Hulk with gamma rays sometimes served to revert him back to Banner. Vision and Captain Marvel attempt the gambit and fail in Incredible Hulk #300:

Reverse polarity tactics don't work either. Here, Mindless Hulk no sells antigamma bursts in Incredible Hulk#299:

The varieties of energy he can withstand are aptly illustrated here when infrared, ultraviolet, cosmic rays, and every other deadly form of radiant energy that Captain Marvel tries do nothing to Mindless Hulk. FromIncredible Hulk #321:

Mindless Hulk survives a gamma bomb detonation blast at ground zero in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #7:

Just as Banner's attributes intermix with the Hulk, attributes of the Hulk bleed into Banner. The line between his human and monster form blurs sometimes; accordingly, Banner developed superhuman attributes himself. For instance, Bruce's human form is highly tolerant to energy. "

The master of radiation directs a killing combination of radioactive rays down at Bruce Banner. It is only his own prolonged exposure to gamma rays that enables him to suffer X-Ray's assault... and live!" FromIncredible Hulk #276:

World War Hulk was born in the very blast that incinerated Caiera of the Oldstrong and destroyed his capital. And it is arguable that the only pain he feels is emotional. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #104-05:

Savage Hulk has survived being blasted by Galactus himself in Secret Wars #9:

Hulk destroys the Crypto Man after its physical strength became superior to that of even Thor in Incredible Hulk #205:

A vaporous entity from Pandora's box measured to possess 133.45 Hercs (a unit equivalent to the maximum amount of energy Hercules could expend in one blow) is forcibly inhaled by World War Hulk's lungs in a single mighty breath and destroyed. From Incredible Hulks #627 and 629:

While resists being possesed by a Thor-level entity, Hulk takes the mystic uru hammer of Nul, Breaker of Worlds, and crushes it between his hands, freeing himself from possesion in Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #3:

Hulk breaks an adamantium alloy simply by flexing his muscles in incredible Hulk #167:

Even when the Leader harnesses his own strength against him, Savage Hulk can still push and power through it in Incredible Hulk #225:

Even when energies are powered by the Savage Hulk's own redirected strength, he can flex and power through to freedom, from Incredible Hulk#114 and again in Marvel Fanfare #47:

The secondary shockwaves that Savage Hulk's blows produce can be just as destructive and powerful as his actual blows. By striking the ground, he produces a shockwave powerful enough to knock a flying Human Torch unconscious in Fantastic Four #25:

In Inhumans #12, he gives the Inhuman Gorgon a taste of his own medicine:

He's cleverly caused tremors that rumble tanks enough to shoot at their own planes in Incredible Hulk#121:

While they can be localized, most of the time Savage Hulk's shockwaves are catastrophic in nature. Here the shockwaves are registered by seismologists in Incredible Hulk #147:

An entire river is parted and splashed away by the concussive power of another shockwave in Incredible Hulkvol.2 #8:

A double-fist pound's shockwave rumbles the Rainbow Bridge enough to toss aside Heimdall in Tales to Astonish #101:

He's destroyed an entire subterranean city with the shockwaves produced by a single blow in Incredible Hulk#127:

His double-fist pounds have caused volcanic eruptions in Incredible Hulk #117 and 170:

Once again, here's another good example of Hulk's great striking power in Incredible Hulk #118:

Even while in upstate New York, his shockwaves are felt instantly miles away in Maine in Incredible Hulk Annual 2001:

A single footstomp's "shockwave causes devastation for miles" in Incredible Hulk Annual 2001:

Another double-fist pound sends shockwaves rippling across a town in Deadpool vol.5 #39:

A mutated Miek is punched across a landscape straight through a volcano in Incredible Hulks #625:

He punches a platform underneath a gigantic Wendigo and Bi-Beast so hard, he sends them to outer space inIncredible Hulks #631:

Savage Hulk clashes with Hyperion and the shockwaves they radiate are felt "countless miles away, [as] geologists look to their seismographs -- then shake their heads in disbelief." From Defenders #13:

But Savage Hulk can wreak even greater havoc solo. Here, Savage Hulk's double-fist pound in Colorado creates shockwaves that are felt all the way out inDenmark, from Incredible Hulk Annual #5:

Savage Hulk doesn't just create these enormously powerful shockwaves by striking other objects. He can bring his hands together and create devastating thunderclaps, hurling air particles at high velocities. They've been described as "louder than a jet plane's sonic boom." FromIncredible Hulk #4 and Fantastic Four #12:

Handling boulders he can create a thunderclap that is so powerful, the concussion sends Human Torch and Thing flying "helplessly into the air, as the Earth for miles around trembles and shudders." FromFantastic Four #26:

Even with only his bare hands, he's sent Iron Man flying in Mighty Avengers #22:

How are the thunderclaps underwater? "In air, Hulk's clap is akin to a sonic boom. In the much denser medium of water... the effects arecatastrophic." FromHulk/Sub-Mariner '98:

Defensively speaking, he can disperse the Sandman's sandstorm as done here in Incredible Hulk#113:

Or disperse Human Torch's flames. From Incredible Hulk #122, Fantastic Four #167 and 534:

The "near hurricane force" winds generated by his thunderclaps can completely snuff out fires engulfing buildings in Defenders #23:

Or blow away a villainous smoky villain -- along with every "tree, rock, blade of grass . . . above ground level . . . by a blast of air so powerful that it puts the fiercest hurricane in history toshame..." in Incredible Hulk Annual #5:

He's even diverted the flight path of missiles with a shockwaves' vibrations in Incredible Hulk #120:

Hulk bring literally brings down the house In incredible Hulk #246 and Tales to astonish #65:

"The force of the Hulk's clap can be felt all the way to the ocean... and as the particles of It, the former Living Colossus, disperse over the wider Los Angeles area..." From Incredible Hulk #244:

Savage Hulk sends Iron Man and Vision flying with a thunderclap in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #7:

Here he sends Blastaar and the armies of the Negative Zone flying in Sentry vol.2 #3:

He's sent the Immortal Hercules flying and deafened him in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:

Underwater, Savage Hulk's massive strength manifests itself as the mere act of swimming ends up creating tidal waves that devastate a coastline miles away inIncredible Hulk #145:

Underwater he can swing his arms around fast enough to produce a rotor effect in Incredible Hulk #138:

Hulk easily disrupts the Texas Twister's wind-vortex in Incredible Hulk #264-265:

Here, a temporarily in control Banner, ends up using his strength to vibrate a chemical sample "thousands of times faster than the centrifuge could" in Captain America & Falcon #12:

Savage Hulk can even flex his lungs and release a breath that sends a regiment of soldiers flying, fromIncredible Hulk #5:

Again, he hurls about his enemies with a breath in incredible Hulk #286-290:

How strong can his super-breath be? Here he knocks down an entire forest with one breath in Incredible Hulk#273:

He even uses it to help save Rick's life in Tales to Astonish #70-74:

Hulk performs a Thunderclap with such force, the pressure from the sonic boom sends cars and people (through concrete walls) flying:

The amount of speed Hulk would require would be dozens that of the speed of sound. There is absolutely no way someone of the Hulk's stature can perform such a feat moving at normal or even 10 to 100 times faster. It would have to be tremendous. It is absolutely impossible for the Hulk to perform a feat with strength, without the proportional acceleration of the object (his hands) as well. source: (SlimJ87D

Objects to the moon:

Here, Savage Hulk literally picks up and throws the gigantic Fin Fang Foom straight to the Moon in Hulk Vs Fin Fang Foom #1:

same thing here he must have to be able to move his hand faster than mach 10 to throw someone on the moon, because of his power.

And again, Savage Hulk tosses the Mandarin's monstrous minion into outer space in Incredible Hulk #107:

And once again, Hulk picks up some wreckage and hurls it "with the speed and impact of a missile" inTales to Astonish #75-77:

Here, Hulk hurls Glenn Talbot in a mandroid battlesuit with an "unbelievable velocity" in Incredible Hulk #245-246:

Even an Elder of the Universe is no match as "he presses his struggle with the Gardener... to victory!" Savage Hulk can even throw the Soul Gem with such velocity that it goes down through a planet's crust and mantle and deep into the very core of K'ai in Incredible Hulk #248:

A single thunderclap shreds an entire battalion of tanks with force of "near nuclear proportions" in Tales to Astonish #67:

Savage Hulk has wracked Hyperion with a single thunderclap -- that also reverberates for blocks and shatters Dr. Spectrum's prism inDefenders#4:

He's literally snuffed out Dormammu's head with a sneak attack from behind in Defenders vol.3 #5:

Hulk's body not only feeds on gamma radiation, it emits it. And Hulk's used it in defensive and offensive ways. Here, he "expends his almost limitless energy and power, [and] his temperature rises to an unimaginable degree," melting his icy prison in Incredible Hulk #5:

An uncontrollable torrent of gamma radiation ends up incinerating bullets in mid-flight in Incredible Hulk#446. The amount of radiation he projects is so lethal, it instantly kills a handler who exposes his suit and even melts a containment unit that would smother a nuclear warhead:

Hulk's extreme levels of strength have allowed him to do things like ripping whole dimensions asunder, even indirectly, with a thunderclaps and collision shock waves, also withstanding force that can rip apart dimensions, as well as being able to destroy planets with mere footsteps:

A Mindless Hulk literally tears Nightmare's Realm apart (Incredible Hulk #299)

In an attempt to counter a attack from Night-Crawler, the Savage Hulk slams his hands together with so much force that not only does he defuse the attack, but he manages to destroy all the planets/landmasses within the entire dimension(Incredible Hulk #126)!

Sending concussive force throughout countless dimensions by the impact of his collision with theIronclad(Incredible Hulk #305)(entire dimensions, and not multiversal planets. First, the writer describes dimensions and where there are planets there are also dimensions, since every planet is situated in dimensions. Therefore to send concussive force to planets propitiates send concussive force to dimensions and their multitudes of astronomical entities. Second, there are dimensions without planets: Universes in the beginning of formation, universes where equal quantities of matter and antimatter were produced and generated only radiation, etc. Besides, there are infinite inter-branched parallel universes in the Omniverse. Therefore the postulate that suggests only planets received the entire energy is probabilistically equal to zero. Finally, the planets shown there were just examples of what occurred inside the dimensions. The same argument is applied for the premise that they were only sub-sections of the universe, just replacing the words "planet" for "sub-dimension" and "dimension" for "universe". It is important to perceive that the U-Foes's powers were vastly augmented while on Earth, so that Vectorrepelled reality itself and transported them to theCrossroads)(Incredible Hulk #304).

Hulk contains the energy of an parallel universe in incredible Hulk #349-350:

It should go without saying that World War Hulk's thunderclaps are nothing short of devastating. While holding back, a thunderclap stuns Namora, Angel and the Immortal Hercules in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #107:

Here he tosses back Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus and Emma Frost in diamond form. From World War Hulk: X-Men #2:

World War Hulk was powerful enough to match an all-out Sentry, a guy with the power of a million exploding suns, blow for blow in World War Hulk #5:

Everything done in the World War Hulk storyline is Hulk holding back with his punches. Amadeus Cho confirms that with his abilities in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:

There isn't really anybody in comics who gets a second wind like World War Hulk. After Bruce and Bob beat the alter-egos out of each other, a spike of anger just brings back a seemingly exhausted World War Hulk to full power... and beyond. From World War Hulk #5:

and there he is going "worldbreaker"...

As he ascends towards Worldbreaker levels, the shockwaves from even a single footstep are felt for hundreds of miles around, tossing helicopters in the air, and causing nearly irreparable damage to the bedrock of the Eastern Seaboard.

Even after he allowed the heroes to drain his gamma away, the damage he caused would have split Manhattan Island in half. From World War Hulk: Aftersmash#1:

The consequences of the Worldbreaker's shockwaves are unequivocally continental in scale. Amadeus Cho reminds Red She-Hulk, "I know. I'm not worried about you... just the rest of the freaking continent." FromIncredible Hulks #632:

And again in Son of Hulk #11-12

(Incredible Hulks #610-611)

It's made clear that the "worldbreaker" power-level wasn't just a one time feat. When he's pushed towards Worldbreaker levels again, the shockwaves produced are felt once again throughout the Eastern Seaboard mirroring his previous footstep. From Incredible Hulk #610:

(Incredible Hulk #630-635)

And Again....

So we know, at worldbreaker power-levels, the Hulk ( and red she-hulk) make the earth quake merely by standing and could sink continents with a footstep.

obviously there's a difference in the amount of effort put into a punch and a footstep. Punches pack way more power and proportion speed than footsteps.

Merely by clashing with Red She-hulk, WB Hulk indirectly......

A. destroyed a planet

AND

B. vaporized a guy on Silver Sufer power-level, as well as guys who rivaled Hulk at base-levels, and the Mindless ones(he even lets the guys attack him so he can amp up that much faster!!).

None of these things were even remotely the focal point of WB Hulk's attack, so they were taking the smallest effects of Hulk's(and Red She-hulk's) power, but they were still destroyed. That's just shows how insanely powerful WB Hulk is.

It's plain to see that worlbreaker Hulk's power is far above the average planet-busting powerhouse.

World War Hulk tosses Fin Fang Foom backwards with such force that Umar's enchanted shields are shattered in Incredible Hulks #634:

Despite the Red Hulk having forcibly absorbed some of World War Hulk's gamma energies, he is defeated by a final thunderclap in Hulk #24:

World War Hulk's also saved lives with his thunderclaps. Here he blows away enough sand to support a crumbling parking garage in Incredible Hulk#611:

There's a lot more where this came from.

Don't mess with the Hulk cause' he's the strongest there is!!

4. THE THREE LAWS OF MOTION

The Three Laws of Motion part 1:

1. Mass is synonymous with inertia or momentum, an object's resistance to movement in a state of excitement or rest which also the same as energy.

Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

2. Force is equal to an objects mass times it's acceleration, F= M x A

Force is the acceleration of mass. Either you have big mass and little acceleration, or a relatively small mass and huge acceleration.

The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.

3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

For example: just because a person is super strong doesn't mean the object they grab or the platform they stand and move on is as strong as them

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #3

"The Most Powerful Muscles Of Any Living Thing On Earth!"

That quote is said many times in comics, Why is that? It's because....

Hulk is fueled by nuclear power(forces of atomic destruction) , also known as gamma rays. Its energy is reliant on the objects speed of vibration. This is the power of the Hulk.

Muscle power is all about the speed of muscle contraction. Muscles put out power by stretching and then rapidly shortening like rubber bands. Power is the force of an object and how fast that force is traveling.

Hulk hits with the same force of a nuclear arsenal with a mass of only 2000 pounds. His muscle contractions move at the speed of light or greater to do that, because of the atom smashing forces that he's fueled by, known as gamma-rays. Hisblows, just lika nuke, push forth a hypersonic wall of air capaable of completely devasting anything in front of it.

Because of this, the writers don't have to directly state Hulk's speed when he's really cutting loose with his striking/thrusting.

The nature of gamma rays speaks for itself. Constantly stating Hulk's speed would just be redundant.

And of course, Hulk's muscle and skeletal tissue and all his other body tissues are built with the durability that is necessary to withstand putting out such great forces. If he couldn't, his body would fall apart.

Superhuman bodies are going to be more dense, denser than a normal human body, and which allows it to handle the pressures it puts on itself as it goes against the force of other objects, able to withstand their own rebounding force or forces that are akin to theirs. As we know Hulk, body is far denser than a normal human's.

It's the same on a human level. When you work-out constantly enough your muscles thicken. The reason muscles thicken when you workout is so they can exert more energy without being torn up in the process. The body is adjusting to the constant and abnormal energy output of the muscles by making them tougher to keep them from getting torn up.

Gamma rays bursts come from the most violent cosmic events in the universe, such as a sun collapsing in on itself, clashing neutron stars, black holes, etc.

unlike supernova, gamma ray bursts do not explode in a spherical motion but a jet-stream motion.

Gamma rays burst produce as much energy as the sun does in its entire billion year life cycle. The sun is like a trillion megaton bombs exploding every second. That would make the sun's total energy approximately That's about 31 nontillion 360 octillion megatons.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN Gamma rays AND THE OTHER LOWER FORMS OF RADIATION:

electromagnetic radition is a particle wave that moves the speed of light in one direction a vibrates at a certain speed in another.

In one direction UV rays and gamma rays travel at the speed of light, yet the partcles are so small that what really acoounts for the difference in power is the speed they move at from side to side.

How fast the wave vibrates from side to side is what determines destructive power.

Stars emit gamma rays, but since they are afar off from earth, by the time the rays reach us, their energy has died down so that they don't rupture atoms down to their cores, and so they become UV rays.

There you go! UV rays actually come from gamma rays. And gamma rays come from burning the energy of hydrogens which starts the chemical reaction known as nuclear fusion.

This is where the difference in wavelength/frequency comes from. The slower the vibration, the greater the wave lengh. And in reverse, the faster the vibration, the smaller the wavelength.

Hulk's energy doesn't come from being as massive as planet.

The speed at which electromagnetic waves go in the horizontal direction isn't what gives them their great power. The mass of the wave is so tiny that the speed means nothing, even going at lightspeed.

Gamma waves are transverse waves, like all other elecetromagnetic raditaion. Their maximum power is not determined by how fast they move in the horizontal direction, but on how fast they shake up and down. The true power of the wave does not move in the same direction that it makes its long distance travels.

Hulk physical power is gamma rays, which is electromagnetic field that vibrates super-fast. So fast do these waves vibrate that they give off energy that is equaivalent to a great many tiny masses each individually moving at light-speed. Combine those masses and speeds and see what you get. The perdpendicular oscsillation of a gamma ray is so fast that an electromagnetic wave travels no more than picometer in its horizontal motion within the same moment one oscillation has been completed in the perpendicular direction.

Large quantities of gamma rays are emitted by the sun and gamm ray bursts can light up a universe and outshine all other stars for a brief time.

Electromagnetic radiation is a transverse wave. The maxumum velocity of the wave does not move in the same direction the wave travels out. I repeat, wave speed is not equal to the speed at which the wave moves up and down when it comes to transverse waves such as electromagnetic radiation, a form of force.

The waves go at the speed of light horizontally but it oscillates up and down at faster than light speeds.

The strength of gamma rays comes from its oscillation speed.

Gamma radiation's kinetic energy is measured in electron volts. One elctronvolt is has a mass of 1.782662×10^−36 kg going at lightspeed.

Gamma ray bursts are known for Outshining all the stars of a Galaxies or universe with their luminence. That's about power. Power is the rate at which a force moves.

Hulk does thing kind of thing a well as with lightning fast jumps

And

Causing powerful supersonic waves through the earth and the air despite only being as massive as a car.

@dum529001:

Nice scans.

I also like what you said about Hulk's Muscle Velocity:

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #260

"The Mightiest Muscles of any Living Being!"

That quote is said many times in comics, Why is that? It's because....

Hulk is fueled by nuclear power(forces of atomic destruction).

And nuclear power is this.....

Rupturing atoms at their core = gamma rays= Light-speed or faster than light-speed travel = The theory of relativity( E= mc²)

Muscle power is all about the speed of muscle contraction. Muscles put out power by stretching and then rapidly shortening like rubber bands.

Hulk hits with the force of a nuclear arsenal. His muscle contractions move at the speed of light or greater to do that, because of the atom smashing forces that he's fueled by, known as gamma-rays,

Because of this, the writers don't have to directly state Hulk's speed when he's really cutting loose with his striking/thrusting. .

The nature of gamma rays speaks for itself. Constantly stating Hulk's speed would just be redundant.

And of course, Hulk's muscle and skeletal tissue and all his other body tissues are built with the durability that is necessary to withstand putting out such great forces. If he couldn't, his body would fall apart.

Superhuman bodies are going to be more dense, denser than a normal human body, and which allows it to handle the pressures it puts on itself as it goes against the force of other objects, able to withstand their own rebounding force or forces that are akin to theirs. As we know Hulk, body is far denser than a normal human's.

It's the same on a human level. When you work-out constantly enough your muscles thicken. The reason muscles thicken when you workout is so they can exert more energy without being torn up in the process. The body is adjusting to the constant and abnormal energy output of the muscles by making them tougher to keep them from getting torn up.

Gamma rays bursts come from the most violent cosmic events in the universe, such as a sun collapsing in on itself, clashing neutron stars, black holes, etc.

unlike supernova, gamma ray bursts do not explode in a spherical motion but a jet-stream motion.

Gamma rays burst produce as much energy as the sun does in its entire billion year life cycle. The sun is like a trillion megaton bombs exploding every second. That would make the sun's total energy approximately That's about 31 nontillion 360 octillion megatons.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN Gamma rays AND THE OTHER LOWER FORMS OF RADIATION:

UV rays and x-rays do travel at the speed of light like gamma rays but the difference is the intensity.

That's right. They have the same speed but different INTENSITY. And with the difference in intensitycomes the difference in destructive power.

Stars emit gamma rays, but since they are afar off from earth, by the time the rays reach us, their energy has died down so that they don't rupture atoms down to their cores, and so they become UV rays.

There you go! UV rays actually come from gamma rays. And gamma rays come from burning the energy of hydrogens which starts the chemical reaction known as nuclear fusion.

This is where the difference in wavelength/frequency comes from. Their energy distribution is different. With gamma rays, you get more energy in one place and at one time, while x-rays and UV rays have a weaker concentration of energy, the energy being more spread out.

That's a little bit of the theory of relativity in action.

Here are some references to a bunch of the Most Powerful Beings in The Marvel Universe so People can see how powerful Hulk is even when compared to Marvel's other absurdly powerful characters and entities.

#1

In his first event, the Beyonder meets the heroes and villains on the battle-world planet to face them in the first Secret Wars. Beyonder also took the mighty Galactus along as well. Giving an example of his power, Beyonder completely destroys a galaxy, making room and then create the giant planet known as the Battleworld, joining him with pieces torn from hundreds of worlds throughout the universe, leaving the only orbit sun Galactic survived the destruction.

Having created a machine that human the Beyonder would lose his omnipotence momentarily, not liking the experience quickly regain its power, which is millions of times more powerful than the rest of the entire multiverse powers combined.

The Original Beyonder was the embodiment of an entire Multiverse. In the words of Jim Shooter (creator of the Beyonder), the Beyonder would be the embodiment of an entire Multiverse apart, which was also witnessed by Mephisto.

The post-retconned Beyonder came to be known as an incomplete Cosmic Cube who created his own universe, where he was the whole and all things.

Kubik and the Shaper come to the universe created by the Beyonder, to reveal their true origin, the Beyonder then against Kubik would fight in a battle that would rock the entire universe created by the Beyonder, Molecule Man would also come to this fight 4 virtually omnipotent beings , each holder of power of a cosmic cube. Kubik achieve even lock the Beyonder and his entire universe in a small area, Kubik could even destroy the universe but for the intervention of the Shaper.

Molecule Man and the Beyonder was again found (post retconeo). Having returned to power draw from Kosmos Owen achieved Beyonder essence. Their battle would be fought on every plane of existence, releasing incredible energy, destroying the laws of physics, through time and space, since the trans-multiversal Quantum, reality trembles at the incredible forces unleashed, causing unimaginable destruction Across the Universe: Galaxy M31 in the center of a planet spontaneously becomes antimatter destroying, in a world Skrull a statue weep blood, in the two-dimensional world called Flatland discover a new dimension called height, in the year 3197 one small plant acquired superhuman intellect in the Crab Nebula beings known as the Watchers are inexplicably blind. Taking advantage of the weakness of the Beyonder, Owen Reece beat achieved. Kubik come to warn that the death of someone like the Beyonder would bring devastating consequences, causing damage cosmography unthinkable in the multiverse.

Kubik and Kosmos two beings able to alter the laws of space / time to his will, creators and destroyers of worlds, to compare themselves with a single Celestial, recognize that despite their power they are nothing for the transfinite (a number more large infinity) power levels have the Celestials, and they could not cope with such a being and expect to survive.

When Galactus "died" the embodiment of destruction that is Abraxas began his destruction throughout the Multiverse, causing the alternate Earth they were merging with ours and that the realities were folded on themselves, literally tearing around the Multiverse! !. Richards discovered the Multiverse misalignment and use the Ultimate Nullifier to correct misalignment multiuniversal, destroying and recreating the Multiverse in just a moment! Restoring harmony in the universal realignment and eradicating the existence of Abraxas in the new Multiverse.

Uatu testify from a galaxy adjacent the birth of a Heavenly awesome!. Barreling in Galaxy Black - containing whole bio-verse - born the Heavenly Blue. Stellaris the Celestial executioner, use his most powerful attack, is trying to destroy the nascent Celestial, his suicide would cause the entire universe reverberates with the replica of an explosion so powerful, so terrifying that would rival the original Big Bang to the story. The explosion would destroy the entire galaxy black and incredible power collapse on itself, being contained in the body of the new Heavenly!. The experience would be so unspeakable that almost flipped the High Evolutionary.

More than 1000 years ago, when Odin summoned the God-heads to decide how to confront The Celestials, and avoid these judge and destroy the Earth, a delegation of the almighty Odin, Zeus and Vishnu would come to face, but even the combined power of these gods would be nothing for the huge Heavenly, would be enough to Arishem the most powerful and the leader of this army, threatening to destroy their kingdoms and isolate them from the earth, forcing the gods to surrender momentarily.

Odin occupied the body of the Destroyer, a powerful and indestructible armor of war, harder and stronger than Uru or Adamantium, enormously powerful and blessed by the other Sky-Fathers of the Earth. Now occupied by the essence of the Father of All, plus the power absorbed by Odin of all Asgardians (except Thor) and carrying his mighty sword (The Oversword of Asgard or Odinsword) capable of cutting reality itself and would cause the destruction of universe! Odin-Destroyer would face all the 4th host of Celestials. The powerful entity known as the Uni-Mind (fusion of the whole race of immortals known as Eternals) from which it was said could rival a Heavenly Odin would join in the fight, but ... the Uni-Mind would be quick and two celestial easily removed. Odin would fight only practically accomplish great feats against the Celestials, but despite its power could not defeat the whole host of Heaven ... The Heaven at the end and destroy the giant exceed Uber-Destroyer!.

Entities such as Mephisto can not be destroyed. When Dr. Strange and Dr. Doom fought against Mephisto in his own realm hell (where he is the supreme being), all would be in vain attempts to challenge the power of the lord of the underworld. Dr. Doom use his science using an antimatter bomb that theoretically should have eliminated Mephisto, but the lord of evil can not be eliminated through natural science.

When Satannish try to get through an adjacent dimension to the realm / dimension Mephisto, Mephisto would stop at the doors of its scale. Engaging and fierce fighting, both entities grow to unbelievable proportions intimidated trying, but so powerful entities how are you size does not mean anything. His devastating battle destroy the worlds of this dimension, causing the universe began to fragment into pieces, causing a spill mystical flow that would extend to the dimension / universe Mephisto and even the size of the Earth, causing destruction in the world and threatening to destroy it as well!. The demonic Titans had to suspend its fight for the moment because the intervention of Dr. Strange, but time is nothing to beings who measure their lives in Eons.

Faster than Light Speed Travel???

No such thing as faster-than-light-speed travel?

Unfortunately, this is one area where it is not as clear cut as Einstein makes it out to be. He never actually proves the light speed constant, only declares to go faster would violate a causality principle, which in turn implies time itself also moves at the speed of light. I doubt time is constrained at all.

Now the so called proof of cesium cloaks and etc moving fast around the planet in plane or satellite only proves the mechanical or chemical mechanisms keeping time are affected by gravity and speed in different ways. A Clock is not a measure of time. Not like a thermometer measures the actual radiation of an object. Clocks do not measure some sort of ” time radiation”, they are just mechanical or chemical actions that occur in predictable increments of time but are not time itself.

The fabric of the universe has no limits.” Space” as they like to call it, is not empty. Where there is motion, there is mass. Where there is motion of mass there is speed and force. “Collapsing” space between two points faster than light is the same as traveling between two points faster than light, from “point-A” to “point-B” . That's not a short cut and there is no such thing as a short-cut. Faster –than-light-speed travel is certainly possible.

Einstein even tries to say that when you travel at fster than lht speeds, space shortens or time speeds decreases, so that you are actually altering time itlself or bending space instead of simply moving across a distance in less time than light does. Distance per unit of time is the definfiton of speed. the definition of speed is not decrease space or time and there is no way to prove something so ridiculous in the first place. Time can't to added to or taken away, only allowed to keep going. Space can not be added or taken away from, only filled or vacated.

So, do you know what I say when someone says "Black holes don't accelerate things beyond light-speed or that the universe does not expanded faster than light-speed becasue it just "space itself" is expanding"? I say "that theory is big a load of crap if you can even bear to call it a theory" and begin poking holes in that theory with the reasons i've given here.

Einstein was right about most everything but we must question a part of his theory where he dismisses faster than light speed travel over a causality principle, then turns around and predicts the nonsense about time travel, which would definitely break a causality principle.

The speed of light is just a finite number in a infinitely powerful universe.

The endless space and time of the universe, known as the space-time continuum, goes far beyond one little finite variable.

Energy density knows no bounds. There is no limit to the power of the atom.

The theory of relativity states that there is no limit to how much the universe can be contorted and squeezed under the forces of gravity. Gravity is the acceleration between two objects due to mass differences. How can you say there is no limit to that and then say that there is a limit to an objects speed? How can you say one thing is infinite and deny the infinity of another so arbitrarily when the two are so very interrelated?

The speed of light is said to cause an objects to acquire great mass. That mass would be the resistance force, the inertia, of other objects in the way the the light-speed or faster than light speed traveling object(inertia is the force of an object while in motion and while not in motion). The energy to overcome the resistance forces would be great but they would not be infinite. Why? Because the energy of light speed is not infinite. People used to say breaking the resistance forces needed to travel faster than the speed of sound was impossible but we know how that turned out. The resistance energy would increase exponentially according to the kinetic energy formula, but only to a finite amount.

There's No such thing as an object acquiring infinite mass. That statement is based on the belief that nothing moves faster than light. In the relativity theory, since nothing moves faster than light, the only way to maximize energy is to increase your mass.

Obviously, that's not true since the strongest forms of electromagnetic radiation have wave oscillation so fast, its measured as a great many times faster than an electron volt.

Not mention that blackholes have faster than light gravity, spiining stars can send out radio six times faster than light for a moment, and the expansion of the universe is faster than light.

its always funny to hear people say...."anything moving at light-speed has infinite energy!!!":

The particles waves that the sun throws out are not infinite in energy.

Are you saying that every burst of electromagnietic radiation that occurs is infinte in energy?

Are you of the opinion that light-speed is the "universal-speed limit"? If so, why?

That theory sure skips over things like black holes and the expanding universe at large.

Neutron stars have gravity that is 200 billion times as much as earth's.

The speed of light is not infinite. The speed of light is a finite number. it's just a finite variable in an infinite universe. I don't see why some scientists and people in general cling to the idea of a "universal-speed limit".

And A single black hole is not infinite in speed/energy/density:

Why? You can’t have mass, no matter how much compressed, take up zero amount of space.

The energy of a black hole is not infinite because it doesn't consume the entire universe. You can't have all the energy of the universe in one place. The universe is endless, like a never-ending line of dominos. Black holes put out very high levels of energy akin to stars but their energy is not infinite.

Increasing speed increases your resistance force, also known as inerita, the resistance and object has to being pushed around while staying still or while in motion.

Mass and energy are not the same thing. Energy is the motion of mass. Some of an atom's component parts have movement but when an object's accelertaion increases it is not increasing in mass. Its amount of substance does not increase! Increasing in energy does not increase your mass!

Einstein physics is one the biggest loads of crap to ever walk the earth. Einstein took the laws of motion and put his own stupid nonsensical spin on them. Einstien merely took things that were already know and added his own bullcrap on top of it and which caused some people his time think science is some mystical bullcrap is something you make up which has no application in the real wolrd because its not based on the real world in the first place.

Einstein made assertions he could not prove. He stated things as facts but had no proof for any of it. He used his theory as proof of his theory, in others words, he wants us to believe his believe based ion his belief instead of demonstrating how his beliefs working in action in the real world. His theory is a string of contradictory and nonsensical crap.

Einstein did not teach the world anything, he merely publicized past work and knowledge while adding his own stuff to it. Einstein taught the world that logic is a fantasy and science is a fantasy land that need not make sense.

Some people like to pretend Einstein's stuff makes sense but it doesn't.

And Regarding the Most Extreme Feats of Marvel Characters:

Rocking entire universes is a warp speed(Faster-than-Light) feat. A HUGE one. People refer to it as "realiy warping" but fail to see that term's real significance.

That is something characters like Beyonder, Molecule Man , Scarlet Witch, Hulk, Odin Force-Thor, Sentry, and have been shown to do. They have even been shown to do this as an indirect effect of combat.

In a fight, when like-forces collide, 99.99 percert of that force should cancel out between the two forces. These Marvel characters I just mentioned have been shown rocking and decimating universes merely by the collision of them and their opponent's power. The tiny bit of leftover force from their collsion was enough to decimate universes!!!! That's just crazy powerful.

Here is a bonus article about FTL speed.......

Is the universe expanding faster than the speed of light?

I had a recent discussion with a professor about the early universe and rapid expansion.

He affirmed that the expansion was not greater than the speed of light. Why is there such a

misunderstanding about this?

Some of the misunderstandings surrounding this topic might come from confusion over what is meant by

the universe "expanding faster than the speed of light." However, for the simplest interpretation of your

question, the answer is that the universe does expand faster than the speed of light, and, perhaps more

surprisingly, some of the galaxies we can see right now are currently moving away from us faster than

the speed of light! As a consequence of their great speeds, these galaxies will likely not be visible to us

forever; some of them are right now emitting their last bit of light that will ever be able to make it all the

way across space and reach us (billions of years from now). After that, we will observe them to freeze and

fade, never to be heard from again.

As for your specific question of what was happening during the period of rapid expansion (or "inflation")

that was thought to mark the early universe, I have to admit that I'm a little less clear on that. However,

the basic idea of the theory of inflation is that the part of the universe which we can see (the "visible

universe") is only a tiny part of the universe as a whole, and that the universe underwent exponential

growth during the inflationary era. Therefore, there certainly would have been points which moved faster

than the speed of light with respect to each other during inflation. Whether any points within our visible

universe moved faster than light with respect to each other is something I'm less clear on, but I'll work on

learning more about this specific point and update this if I find anything!

To answer the broader question in detail, we need to specify what we mean by the universe "expanding

faster than the speed of light." The universe is not a collection of galaxies sitting in space, all moving

away from a central point. Instead, a more appropriate analogy is to think of the universe as a giant blob

of dough with raisins spread throughout it (the raisins represent galaxies; the dough represents space).

When the dough is placed in an oven, it begins to expand, or, more accurately, to stretch, keeping the

same proportions as it had before but with all the distances between galaxies getting bigger as time goes

on.

The bottom line is that different pairs of galaxies are moving at different speeds with respect to each

other; the further the galaxies are, the faster they move apart. So when we ask whether the universe

is "expanding faster than the speed of light," I am going to interpret that to mean, "Are there any two

galaxies in the universe which are moving faster than the speed of light with respect to each other?"

So how do we measure this? As discussed in a previous question, the universe's expansion is determined

by something called the Hubble constant, which is approximately equal to 71, measured in the technically

useful but conceptually confusing units of "kilometers per second per megaparsec." In more sensible

units, the Hubble constant is approximately equal to 0.007% per million years -- what it means is that

every million years, all the distances in the universe stretch by 0.007%. (This interpretation assumes that

the Hubble "constant" actually stays constant over those million years, which it doesn't, but given that a

million years is extremely short on cosmic timescales, this is a pretty good approximation. It also assumes

that when we talk about the "distance" between two galaxies, we are referring to the distance between

them right now -- that is, the distance we would measure if we somehow "pressed the freeze-frame

button" on the universe, thereby stopping the expansion, and then extended a really long tape measure

between the two galaxies and read off the distance. There are many other distances that can be defined in

cosmology, but this is the most useful one for the current question.)

If we use the definition of distance given above (and only if we use this definition and no other), then

the Hubble constant tells us that for every megaparsec of distance between two galaxies, the apparent

speed at which the galaxies move apart from each other is greater by 71 kilometers per second. Since

we know that the speed of light is around 300,000 kilometers per second, it is easy to calculate how

far away two galaxies must be in order to be moving away from each other faster than the speed of

light. The answer we get is that the two galaxies must be separated by around 4,200 megaparsecs

(130,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kilometers).

So we have reduced the original question to a much simpler one: Are there any two galaxies in the entire

universe whose distance (as defined above) is greater than 4,200 megaparsecs?

Well, we could just answer this question by "cheating": Since current cosmological theories state that

the universe is infinitely big, then there certainly are a bunch of galaxies which are more than 4,200

megaparsecs away from each other -- in fact, an infinite number of them! However, if we want to stick a

bit more closely to observations, we can't really prove that the universe is infinite. In light of this, a more

fair question to ask might be whether or not any galaxies in the visible universe (the part we can currently

see) are moving away from us faster than the speed of light.

Surprisingly, the answer is yes! Ned Wright's Cosmology Tutorial has a calculatorwhich allows you to

compute many quantities, including distance, for different models of the universe and for galaxies at

different "redshifts" from us (the redshift is an experimentally easy-to-determine property of the galaxy's

light that tells us how much the universe has stretched between the time the light was emitted and the time

it was received). Using the best observationally-determined values for the universe's rate of expansion,

acceleration and other parameters (which are the default inputs for the calculator), I found that if you use

a value of around 1.4 for z (the redshift), you get the required distance of 4,200 megaparsecs. Therefore,

any galaxy with a redshift greater than 1.4 is currently moving away from us faster than the speed of light.

Can we see these galaxies? Yes, we certainly can! Bright galaxies are regularly detected out to redshifts

of a few; a redshift of 1.4 isn't really that much. For example, here are some pictures of quasars (galaxies

with extremely active black holes in their centers) with redshifts around 5. We can even see light

(although not individual objects) all the way back to a redshift of 1000 or so. (This light is referred to as

the Cosmic Microwave Background and was emitted around 380,000 years after the Big Bang, right after

the Universe had cooled down enough for light to get through all the intervening matter.) Meanwhile, the

numbers spit out by the calculator tell us that for a galaxy with a redshift of 1.4, the light we are currently

seeing from this galaxy was emitted around 4.6 billion years after the Big Bang, when the Universe was

already quite well-developed.

You might be wondering how we could possibly see a galaxy that is moving away from us faster than

the speed of light! The answer is that the motion of the galaxy now has no effect whatsoever on the light

that it emitted billions of years ago. The light doesn't care what the galaxy is doing; it just cares about

the stretching of space between itscurrent location and us. So we can easily imagine a situation where

the galaxy was notmoving faster than the speed of light at the moment the light was emitted; therefore,

the light was able to "outrun" the expansion of space and move towards us, while the galaxy moved

away from us as the universe expanded. Keeping in mind what we learned above -- that farther objects

recede faster in a proportionally stretching universe -- we can immediately see that right after the light

is emitted, the galaxy is moving away from us faster than the point at which the light is located, and that

this disparity will only increase as time goes on and the galaxy and light separate even more. Therefore,

we can easily have a situation where the galaxy keeps on moving away faster and faster, eventually

reaching or exceeding the speed of light relative to us, while the light which it emitted billions of years

ago leisurely coasts on, never having to move across a region of space that was stretching faster than the

speed of light, and therefore reaches us eventually.

You might also be wondering how a galaxy is ever able to surpass the speed of light barrier in the first

place; for that, see our answer to a previous question.

The fact that galaxies we see now are moving away from us faster than the speed of light has some bleak

consequences, however. Astronomers now have strong evidencethat we live in an "accelerating universe,"

which means that the speed of each individual galaxy with respect to us will increase as time goes on. If

we assume that this acceleration continues indefinitely, then galaxies which are currently moving away

from us faster than the speed of light will always be moving away from us faster than the speed of light

and will eventually reach a point where the space between us and them is stretching so rapidly that any

light they emit after that point will never be able to reach us. As time goes by (billions of years in the

future), we will see these galaxies freeze and fade, never to be heard from again. Furthermore, as more

and more galaxies accelerate past the speed of light, any light that they emit after a certain point will

alsonot be able to reach us, and they too will freeze and fade. Eventually, we will be left with a universe

that is mostly invisible, with only the light from a few, very nearby galaxies (whose motions are strongly

affected by local gravitational interaction) to keep us company. For more details, here is a technical paper

on this topic.

Which galaxies are currently "saying their last goodbyes?" That is, if we imagine that there are aliens

living in these galaxies who hope to make contact with us, which galaxies are running up against their

deadline right at this moment? A reasonable guess would be that the galaxies which are currently

moving at the speed of light with respect to us (at a distance of 4,200 megaparsecs and redshift of 1.4, as

discussed above) are at the "critical point" where any light they emit after now will never be able to reach

us. Roughly speaking, this is correct, but a detailed calculation (such as the one contained in this paper)

shows that for the simplest viable model of the universe's acceleration, it is actually galaxies at a distance

of 4,740 megaparsecs and redshift of 1.69 that are just now reaching the critical point, while galaxies at a

redshift of 1.4 are still emitting light that will eventually reach us.

The difference is due to a rather subtle fact: Even though the universe is "accelerating" in the sense that

each galaxy moves faster as time goes on, the Hubble constant is actually decreasing with time -- in other

words, the rate at which space is expanding, measured at a point which is at a fixed distance from us,

gets smaller as time goes on. If we keep our eyes on an individual galaxy as it moves away from us, we

will see it accelerate, but if we keep our eyes on a fixed point in space and watch many different galaxies

go past that point, each galaxy's speed will be slower than the one before it. (As a very rough analogy,

the universe behaves like a river with rapids. If you put a boat in the river and allow it to be carried by

the flow, it will accelerate as it moves downstream and enters the rapids. But if you sit on the bank and

measure the speed of the water at one location, it changes based on an entirely different set of factors --

for example, the rate at which the supply of water from upstream is changing. It is possible for the water

speed at your location to decrease with time, even though each boat that you release accelerates as it

heads into the rapids.) Because of this effect, if light is able to "swim against the tide" and remain at a

roughly constant distance with respect to us (as would happen if it is emitted from a galaxy moving away

from us at the speed of light), then as time goes on and the Hubble constant decreases, it will eventually

be able to gain ground, "swim upstream" and traverse the necessary distance of space to reach us.

By the way.......

Never forget about resistance forces!!

Another differance between striking and lifting is:

The slowness in a lift comes from the fact that you have forces working against against you as you push. That what happens when you stand in the way of resisting gravitation forces. Forces that are close to eqaul will cancel each other out a little. During a lift, your entire limb is more connected to what your lifting so you expect to feel more resistance on your whole limb as you lift. Your force is being cancelled out a rate close to the rate it is being put out.

Another difference between striking and lifting is "work". How great a distance your force can push something in a single blow. I can give 2000 pounds a nudge but I can't actually lift that weigth in the complete and formal way.

And of course, there is "Power", the rate at which work is done.

And yes.... Proper punching form allows a person to use their full speed. The pper body rest on the core and the core on the legs. Proper balacne of your body and well as a properly formed fist will allow you to punch your best.

Could Any Current Man-made Force Stop the Rotation of the Earrth Or Even Stop It's Orbit?

Nuclear bombs are humankind's most powerful weapon, but their destructive impact would unlikely alter the spinning of the Earth on its axis.

One way to see this is to compare the energy of a nuclear blast to that of the rotational motion of the Earth. The largest nuclear bombs have an explosive energy of several tens of megatons, or about 10^17 Joules, whereas the Earth's rotational energy is around 10^29 Joules.

So even if all the force of a nuclear explosion was used to push the Earth in a particular direction, the energy in this push would be less than a trillionth that of the rotational energy.

It would be like trying to divert a speeding car with the energy of a flying mosquito.

Even the largest earthquakes have only a miniscule effect on our planet's spinning. Scientists calculated that the colossal tsunami-causing 2004 Sumatra earthquake caused a slimming of the Earth thatshortened the day by a few millionths of a second and shifted the North Pole by an inch.

The amount of fault-moving ("Earth-slimming") energy in this magnitude 9.3 earthquake was estimated at more than 10&^22 Joules, or roughly 100,000 times that of the biggest nuclear bombs. So any effect of a nuclear blast on Earth's rotation would be far below what is measureable.

One final note: Nuclear explosions would have even less influence on the Earth's orbit around the sun, as the planet's orbital energy is 10,000 times greater than its rotational energy. This fact did not prevent the making of the 1961 film "The Day the Earth Caught Fire," in which nuclear testing knocks the Earth out of its orbit and towards the sun.

Calculations:

The Sumatra's earthquake of 2004's energy is 10 sextillion joules(1.0* 10^22).

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 joules/4,184,000,000,000,000 joules per megaton= 2,390,057.36138 megatons

That's 2 million 390 thousand and 57 megatons (plus some decimal points)!

2,390,057.36138 megatons /100000= 23.9005736138 megatons

2,390,057.36138 megatons /50000= 47.8011472276 megatons

Currently The highest bomb energy yields are 20 to 50 megatons.

The earthquake was 50,000 to 100,000 times more powerful than some of the highest energy bombs made by man.

How much do speed rise when energy rises exponentially?

KE=1/2*(M)*(V)^2KE=1/2*(10g)*(5m/s)^2 1

125 J= 5g*(5m/s)^2

125^2= 15,625

15,625 J=1/2*(10g)(V)^2

15,625 J= (5g)(V)^2

15,625 J/5g=(V)^2

3125=(V)^2 55.9 m/s =V

5(x)= 55.9 x= 11.18

As energy rises exponentially, speed is multiplied by eleven(and 18 hundreths).

Its called "gamma energy" for a reason.Its called "gamma energy" for a reason. Its energy is reliant on the objects speed of vibration.

The speed at which electromagnetic waves go in the horizontal direction isn't what gives them their great power. The mass of the wave is so tiny that the speed means nothing, even going at lightspeed.

Gamma waves are transverse waves, like all other elcetrmagnetic raditaion. Their maximum power is not determined by how fast they move in the horizontal direction, but on the rate at which they shake up and down.

Hulk physical power is gamma rays, waves that give off energy that is equaivalent to a great many tiny masses individually moving at light-speed. Combine those masses and speeds and see what you get. The perdpendicular oscsillation of a gamma ray is so fast that an electromagnetic wave can travel no more than picometer in its horizontal motion within that same moment.

Large quantities of gamma rays are emitted by the sun and gamm ray bursts can light up a universe and outshine all other stars for a brief time.

The power of gamma rays on full display here as the Hulk's "gamma-spawned might" can also give light to an "eons-dark cosmos" in Incredible Hulk #126:

Hulk's energy doesn't come from being as massive as planet.

Hulk's bodily energy is on the level of a star or greater. The sun generates alot of energy at once but that is because it has billions upon billion of tons of hydrogen atoms to convert into gamma ray particles all at once. Hulk can genrate the same levels of energy but with less mass. That means they are faster and therefore more powerful than the sun. Their bodies are simply vast storehouses of energy.

The Thunderclap: One the iconic ways Hulk displays his power

He can bring his hands together and create devastating shockwaves, hurling air particles at high velocities. They've been described as "louder than a jet plane's sonic boom." FromIncredible Hulk #4 and Fantastic Four #12:

So, what's the description of the shockwave from a nuclear explosion, exactly?

The same way an atomic bomb explodes and the fireball of nuclear energy pushes out a wave of air that is hundreds of times faster than sound that puts craters in the earth and causes most the widespread damage to buildings. 99 percent aren't killed by the atomizing radiation from a nuclear bomb since no one is usaully hit at point blank range, because otherwise they would be instantly vaporized, but they experience the secondary shockwave force and the left over radiation of the bomb.The secondary shockwave of an atomic bomb starts at about 184 Km/s or Mach 540 for a short distance before slowing down.

As I said before, much of the damage inflicted by a nuclear explosion is the result of its shock wave. There are two components to a blast's shock wave. First, there's the wall of pressure that expands outward from the explosion. It is this pressure, measured in psi (pounds per square inch), that blows away the walls from buildings. A typical two-story house subjected to 5 psi would feel the force of 180 tons on the side facing the blast. (Download the Quicktime movie entitled house to see an example of a building subjected to this type of pressure.) Additionally, the blast creates a 160 mile-an-hour wind. And that's only at 5 psi. The wind speed following a 20 psi blast would be 500 mph!

It's noted That Hulk's thunderclap is like a bomb going off in Incredible Hulk annual 1997:

Hulk bring literally brings down the house In incredible Hulk #246 and Tales to astonish #65:

Hulk is so powerful that he can shred just about anything in its path with just the hypersonic waves he can make.

it takes as much as 1.1 GPa to pull a stainless

steel wire apart, but wait a minute, how thick is the wire? Well, 1.1 GPa means 1.1 thousand million Newtons per

square metre. Thus, it takes a force of about 1.1 thousand million Newtons (equivalent to about one hundred

million kilograms, dividing Newtons by 10 gives you kg approximately) to pull apart a wire one metre in

cross-section (area = Pi x radius squared, for a circular wire, giving the wire a radius of 56 cm, or a diameter of

112 cm) - that's a very thick wire! In practise engineers might measure this on a bar of steel one centimetre

thick, but to compare this to say a plank of wood 10 cm thick, they scale everything up into one square metre

and quote the result as GPa or MPa. (One MPa or megapascal = one million Pascals).

Example: a steel wire with a cross-sectional area of one square cm, that's 0.0001 square metres, since there

are 100 cm in one metre and 100 x 100 = 10000 square cm in one square m (this wire will have a diameter just

over 1 cm) requires (1.1 GPa x 0.0001m = 0.00011 Newtons = 0.11 N = 110 N = 110 000 N) 110 000 Newtons

of force to break it.

Dividing by ten, this means that such a wire could hold 11 000 kg dangling from it, that's

about three of our elephants!

A single thunderclap shreds an entire battalion of tanks with force of "near nuclear proportions" in Tales to Astonish #67:

1 newton per 0.224808943 pounds force.

1,000,000,000, netwons= 224,808,942.44300002

That's 224 million 808 hundred thousand 924 hundred pounds!

1ton=2000pounds

224,808,942.44300002/2000= 112,000 tons

What is a shockwave and how does a sonic boom occur?

Shock waves are large amplitude pressure waves produced by an object moving faster than the speed of sound like a boat or plane, or other things such as an explosion, lightning or even a moving piston.When a source moves faster than the waves it produces, no waves will form in front of the source but will pile up behind and become compressed. The waves protruding are confined to a cone that narrows as the speed of the source increases and the waves bunch up, creating high-pressure regions outside the compressed waves. This border from inside to outside is the shock wave. The strength of a shock wave dissipates greatly with distance, much more so than a regular wave, as heat and other energy are more quickly transferred into the surrounding environment. Once enough energy has dissipated, the shock wave will become a regular wave such as a sound wave.

As for sonic booms.....

The “sound barrier,” in actuality, is the speed that must be attained by matter, — airplane, missile, water, air — where a vacuum bubble is created in the moving matter’s wake. When the vacuum bubble forms, the matter around it rushes into the vacuum without resistance of any other matter and therefore attains super-sonic speeds. When the matter rushing into the vacuum surpasses the “sound barrier,” a sonic BOOM occurs. An IMPLOSION. This is the sequence heard when an airplane goes super-sonic, or where a lightning arc super-heats the surrounding air so fast that it blasts away from the heat creating a vacuum bubble and then cooler air rushes into the vacuum. The vacuum causes very powerful implosions, one type of implosion is termed “inertial cavitation,” a phenomenon which can destroy propellers and water pipes. The implosion also causes compression which can instantly generate enormous heat signatures. Continuously occurring inertial cavitation will, over time, destroy metal by the continuous blasts of heat energy which eventually melts the metal away. Such damage looks as though the metal was chipped away.

What Hulk does isn't just about strength its about power. Power is the rate at which a force travels.

If the two objects produce the same force, which is faster? The one that's smaller is faster. How much faster depends on the difference in size. The fact the Hulk can move things more massive than him at great speeds demonstrates how much greater his own speed is. It shows his power.

#1. When you create great vibration through the earth by punching it and you are nowhere as big as the earth that's power. The force of Hulk's punch is translated into an earthquake. The force of the quaking earth and Hulk fist will be the same but the Hulk is the far smaller object, so he is mush faster. Earthquakes can easily travel 24 times the speed of sound. Hulk, being the smaller object, is much faster despite having equivalent force. A million tons(a billion kilograms) going at mach 24 is equal to 16 megatons of force. Obviously, the Hulk is much more powerful than that.

#2. When Hulk makes a thunderclap(a sonic boom) equal to that a nuclear bomb, he surpasses the sound barrier, leaving ripples of explosions and and implosions through the air behind his hands, his speed and force of his hands pushing forth a massive wall of air at hundreds of times the speed of sound, that takes power.

#3. Hulk's jumps have shown to be many times faster than sound. Travel a hundred miles in a single bound means you're going 400 times the speed of sound. Travel 1000 miles in a single bound and that's 4000 times the speed of sound. Not to mention Hulk has leaped to escape velocity more than once.

Due to gravity, an object starts dropping after one second. The object will drop 10 meters in one second and will drop faster every second. Speed is required to cover long distances by jumping before gravity pulls you down in one second. Jumping ability is all about power.

#4. Hulk has had people measure his power, which is how great and how fast a force is transfered over distance, and it is virtually beyond measure.

When people try to measure "Hulk power, they find it to greater than anything on earth and have trouble measuring it. Hulk has demonstrated to more powerful than any nuclear force on the planet with astronomical feats of power.

Hulk's is a nuclear equivalent. His striking feats are nuclear. Nuclear force that surpasses anything on earth. He sends out shockwaves of nuclear proportions. Mountain busting, continent leveling nukes have nothing on the Hulk. Hulk has shown power on the level with or surpassing, celestial objects such as stars and planets. Nothing to indicate slowness there, but the opposite.

#5. Hulk's power is gamma rays.

The speed at which electromagnetic waves go in the horizontal direction isn't what gives them their great power. The mass of the wave is so tiny that the speed means nothing, even going at lightspeed.

Gamma waves are transverse waves, like all other elecetrmagnetic raditaion. Their maximum power is not determined by how fast they move in the horizontal direction, but on the rate at which they shake up and down.

Hulk physical power is gamma rays, waves that give off energy that is equaivalent to a great many tiny masses individually moving at light-speed. Combine those masses and speeds and see what you get. The perdpendicular oscsillation of a gamma ray is so fast that an electromagnetic wave can travel no more than picometer in its horizontal motion within that same moment.

Large quantities of gamma rays are emitted by the sun and gamm ray bursts can light up a universe and outshine all other stars for a brief time.

So powerful is that the Hulk that on of the first times the military barely manages to capture him, he must be held with a cage of anti-matter beams inTales to Astonish #78:

Army scientist, Dr. Zaxon is incapable of even measuring the Hulk's vast power with a geiger counter. "I can hardly believe these readings! He's a veritable blast furnace of limitless organic energy! There is no way to even measure is strength!" From Tales to Astonish #78:

Once again, we can see the Hulk's power easily dwarfs any nuclear assault that earth can muster. Here he shown ripping through a bunker designed to withstand the explosion of many thousands of megatons in magnitude. "Against the force of the gamma-energized Hulk.... it fares not well at allinincredible Hulk #177:

The pressure Savage Hulk's strength can exert is so powerful, Savage Hulk "[a]lmost effortlessly stops the speeding train with the sheer gamma-ray power of his iron-muscled body!" FromFantastic Four #26:

THE INCREDIBLE HULK #112

"The Hulk cannot tire! The more he fights--the stronger he becomes!"

"Though the Incredible Hulk is subjected to deadly forces beyond mortal description, still does the indescribable Gamma Ray Energy within his massive frame continue to sustain him -- still does his mighty heart beat on, as his all-consuming rage increases with every passing second!"

"An incalculable will to live!"

Thank you so much. Maybe if people see that they would stop underestimating him. I am sick and tired of people who still think he is the hulk in '62. Also I still don't understand why ehn Superman(love him btw) does things like moving planets it is totally acceptable but when Hulk does something better even if he does time and time again it is automatically marked as PIS. Please explain this to me.

Nice thread.

Hulk is incredible because he has incredibly biased fanboy.

Taking a beating like this is pretty incredibly to me. I know some hulk fans disagree, but Zeus' entire fist was in Hulk's ribcage. Are there any other heroes that could take that and live? Maybe. But probably not any that could take lightning to the face like he did and get up in a page or two. He's pretty friggin tough.

Ugh this is so great but there are sooo many pics that wont show and I tried on different browsers and computers.

Bump. I don't think it would because this assumption is too damn popular to end.

Figure I'd give this thread a bump. It deserves some attention.
