i have always been a fan of the hulk. my childhood friends and i would debate the hulk vs superman battle. to be honest, since both characters are
make believe it really shouldn't matter. but for some odd reason..... it does.
i think the hulk would beat superman in a fight.
in this thread i will post the strengths of both as found on the internet and see where that leads us. the powers and abilities are from the websites
first the hulk.....
unlimited strength -
There has never been a limit shown as to the highest strength the Hulk can reach thus it is assumed it is limitless. When Hulk allowed Jean Grey to
psionically "shut Banner off", he reached a scale of power on which he managed to overpower and destroy the physical form of the villain
thunder clap -
The Hulk can slam his hands together to create a large thunderclap-type concussive force.
leaping ability -
can leap into the earth's atmosphere
accelerated healing -
During a battle with Vector, he repelled all of the skin off of the Hulk leaving just exposed flesh and muscle. It took the Hulk minutes to regain the
mass and be completely healed. he has withstood the equivalent of solar temperatures, nuclear explosions, and planet-shattering impacts.
dynamic durability -
Similar to how the Hulk gets stronger as he gets angrier, he also heal quicker and his skin becomes tougher. It is not known if the increase in
healing and skin-toughening is related to Incarnation. including growing tissues to allow him to breathe underwater, surviving unprotected in space
for extended periods, and when injured, healing from most wounds within seconds. he has displayed sufficient superhuman speed to match Thor, and
Sentry. he can grow stronger from radiation or dark magic.
breathe underwater -
able to breathe due to his body developing a gland which creates an oxygenated perfluorocarbon emulsion which fills his lungs and equalizes the
pressure. He is therefore able to breathe.
resistance to mind control -
This is probably due to the fact that there are multiple personalities residing in the Hulk's mind and a person can not control all of them at once
as they offer resistance.
Unusual Mental Abilities - he can see and interact with the spirit world. as bruce, he possesses "a mind so brilliant it cannot be measured on any
known intelligence test."
all superman's powers depend on the yellow light of the sun. he needs the rays from the sun to keep his strength up.
super human strength -
Strength much greater than that of a normal Human and even most Metahumans, making him "more powerful than a locomotive," is one of Superman's
signature powers. While not infinite, depictions of the upper limit of how much weight he can lift have ranged from being able to do the work of
several laborers in half the time, lift objects hundreds of times his own weight. Superman's endurance has also been shown as limitless (whilst he
remains in yellow sunlight).
Immunity to almost all forms of harm and ailments, including extreme force and extremely high temperatures. Effectiveness has ranged from his skin
being piercable by nothing less than a "bursting shell" to being completely unharmed by a star going supernova. This ability includes the immunity
to most known physical and mental diseases, viruses and toxins. (as long as he has a yellow sun)
Originally, he only had the power to jump great distances, as stated by the 1940s Superman cartoons ("Able to leap tall buildings in a single
bound"). but over time, the power evolved into operating independently of gravity and fly.
superhuman speed -
Originally classified as being "faster than a speeding bullet". Top speeds have ranged from nearly a hundred miles per hour when he was first
created in the 1930s to speeds far greater than the speed of light.
x-ray vision and heat vision and super vision -
The ability to see through solid objects, usually with the exception of lead. Ability to emit solar energy from his eyes. Usually resembles bright
red or orange laser-like beams. His senses grant him the ability to see farther and with greater accuracy and detail than humanly possible.
super breath -
freeze breath and the ability to inhale and exhale huge volumes of air with great force.
super nose -
A heightened and highly accurate sense of smell comparable to some animals such as dogs.
photographic memory -
able to recall everything he sees, hears, or reads.
and remember.... all of superman's powers rely on the yellow sun.
so, what do you think?
