Who is the most powerful person it has ever hurt? who is the most powerful person it could hurt?

@Amazingoctus: Not sure the most powerful characters it hurt, but since man thing has a mystical origin it cold probably hurt anything.

ok this is another question that I had on the touch: what would happen if he was to burn the silver surfer? would man-thing absorb the power cosmic from SS? would SS lose his powers but nothing more on either side? nothing other than it hurts SS?

@Amazingoctus: Anything that knows FEAR BURNS at the touch of the Man-Thing.

I don't think Man-Thing would absorb powers or cause anyone to lose their powers. They'd just feel pain and maybe even receive serious damage to their body.

IIRC, at one point Man-Thing was able to burn through the Hulk's skull during one of their battles (it was in an issue of The Incredible Hulk but I don't remember which one it was...)

@mr.obvious: MY theory is that Man Thing's touch is actually a form of acid he can secrete from his hands, it's more of a flawed defence mechanism as near as I can tell because Man Thing only uses it on people who fear him and might attack him because of that fear!

Exactly.

Exactly.

That's exactly what it is
