It's always good to see Hercules on a list of top 10 strongest heroes, especially one that comibines Marvel and DC characters.   
 
I agree that Superman is the strongest of all heroes, but I'd rank Captain Marvel second overall.  Also, I consider Hercules stronger than Thor. 
 
Good list.

@PowerHerc: Thank you, I see Thor and Silver Surfer as superiors to Captain Marvel though. Hmm, you raise a good point about Hercules being stronger than Thor. The logic says yes, but the feats say otherwise. Hopefully in the upcoming years we see another rematch between Hercules and Thor in an all out, no holding back, straight up fist fight.

@Deranged Midget:
Cool.  Though I do think Herc's feats are at least equal to Thor's.

@PowerHerc: In recent events, yes. He is a complete badass.

@PowerHerc: Do you think Hercules should get a new costume?

@Deranged Midget:
No, I like his costume based closely on the Kirby original.

@PowerHerc: Agreed! I think he would look ridiculous wearing tights considering his massive build. :P

not a bad list though i thought you have added Gladiator or does he not count as a hero or maxima since she became one

Nice list. Is this a pure strength list or overall power list as well?

@Lvenger: Pure strength alone. If it was the power game, Superman wouldn't be that high on the list.

@Deranged Midget: Ah so this is a strongest powerhouse/heavy hitter list? Obviously reality warpers and cosmic beings dwarf these guys by far.

@Lvenger: Indeed, I find the most "powerful" too difficult to pin-point.

@NerdsFTW: Thanks for recommending, but what exactly are you disagreeing with?

Posted by NerdsFTW

@Deranged Midget: I think Superman isn't one of the most powerful heroes in the DCU, he's the most powerful hero.

I have to learn to be more specific.

Posted by Deranged Midget

@NerdsFTW: Most powerful hero? There are more powerful but I believe he's easily one of, if not the strongest.

@Deranged Midget: Okay, you're right.

Are you british?

Posted by Deranged Midget

@SandMan_: Nah, different incarnations of the character, different strength levels.

I can imagine the chaos that would occur if a fight were to occur between these guys. Especially Superman vs Sentry

Posted by Deranged Midget

@CaptainLantern76: It would be quite the battle indeed!

@Deranged Midget: You consider Thor to be stronger than Hulk?

Posted by Deranged Midget

@NerdsFTW: Base strength? Indeed I do. Hulk has the potential to surpass him but Thor always remains on equal terms.

I meant the latter, I thought you meant Thor will always be stronger than Hulk, no matter how angry Hulk gets.

Posted by Deranged Midget

@NerdsFTW: There's a potential for Thor to always be the stronger one of the two especially since his return, they haven't had a full on bout with Thor unleashing everything.

@Deranged Midget:you mean Thor using all of his powers?

Posted by Deranged Midget

@NerdsFTW: No, that would be in reference to "powerful". I'm still referring to brute strength.

It would be interesting.

I agree with most of it, however controversially, I'd actually rank Citizen Steel as 1, or at least very close too it.

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Backflip: It's mostly personal bias.

I think the Thing belongs on there, just my opinion.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

Personally i think that Hulk should be higher on the list. I mean, at the strongest form i've seen (World War Hulk) he was taking steps, and it was cracking the Earth. That's massive strength. Just my opinion.

Good List!

Posted by Deranged Midget

@JamesKM716: Hulk originally wasn't on my list, but I have to re-do it eventually.

I really like this list, and especially the characters that you chose to rank. Especially like Hercules at #2, and as the top-rated Marvel character. And I also like Captain Atom at #10 as he definitely needs more recognition and respect.

Edited by Betatesthighlander1

are they in order?

Oooh -- lookee! A female....

;p

Posted by Pyrogram

Captain Atom looks so damn badass.

Posted by TheIncredibleSuperHulk8642

Great List although I think Hulk is physically the strongest character on the list and that Thor is stronger than Herc other than that I pretty much have no other problem with the list :)
