Umm... are you going to drink that Skooma?

Now that comic books, comic movies and other nodes of general nerdery have been thrust centre in the realms pop culture and the public consciousness, I can imagine the process of getting used to the hierarchy of comic characters, for a newcomer to all things comics, could be pretty f**king daunting.

It's a good thing the internet exists, because there are literally reams of information regarding where superheroes stand in relation to abilities, and who is the best of all street level warriors. But what of the strongest characters and gods of comics?

Over on Reddit, bobdylan777 has whipped up a well thorough list of the most powerful beings to exist within the megaverses of Marvel and DC folklore, ranging from the creators of the universes right down to more familiar heroes and villains.

It certainly piqued my interest, so have a look. See what you think:

The Most Powerful Characters In Marvel & DC

1. The Supreme Beings

Completely omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent over all of their respective creations.

Marvel

The One Above All

DC

The Presence

2. All-of-Creation Level

Marvel

Fulcrum

Boss-man of the Celestials, also runs a bar. Drawn to look like Jack Kirby.

DC

Lucifer Morningstar

His will shaped DC creation into being. Possesses enough power to destroy creation but is generally too chill for that.

Honorary Mention:

Thanos (Heart of the Universe)

Gained enough power to casually absorb the Living Tribunal along with everything else in the multiverse into himself.

Full List:

3. Multiversal Nigh-Omnipotent Level

Marvel

Protege

Gained more nigh-omnipotence than the Living Tribunal and defeated it in combat. Was still roflstomped by Scathan, however.

DC

Full Power Spectre

Nearly omnipotent and only held in check by The Presence's commands.

Full List:

4. Multiverse Abstract Level

Marvel

Abraxas

Symbolizes the death of the Marvel multiverse (could be universe).

DC

The Endless

Crazy powerful multiversal abstracts (Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Destiny, Delirium and Despair).

Honorary Mention:

Darkseid

He is in a class of his own among the characters listed. His mere entrance into the multiverse caused it to begin collapsing.

Full List:

The fifth, sixth and seventh levels (Universal Nigh-Omnipotent, Abstract and Celestial, respectively) are all filled with Marvel's finest. Most powerful being Infinity Gauntlet Thanos, and lowest being the Celestials.

8. Skyfather Tier

Marvel

Old King Thor

Slightly stronger than Odin, or at least most people consider him to be.

DC

Superman Prime One Million

His having 5D Imp powers was debunked pretty well, but just based on him sundipping for so insanely long he is very easily Skyfather tier.

Honorary Mention:

Doomsday (Gog Wars)

Fought an infinite army of Skyfather-level beings for 100 years.

Full List:

9. Transcendant Tier

Marvel

Thanos

Casually pimp slaps Herald tiers to beat them. Durability is off the charts, has tanked a blast from Odin and knocked Galactus off his feet using energy projection. Also a super genius.

DC

Superboy Prime

The whole retcon punch thing was very situational. His general power level lets him fight hordes of heroes and completely shit on S-tiers. He took on a galaxy-level explosion when the War-World exploded and punched a hole straight through a weakened Anti-Monitor.

Full List:

10. Herald Tier

Marvel

Silver Surfer

Tip top of herald tier. Extremely OP energy and matter manipulation, slightly above Superman-level physical stats, Power Cosmic is too OP in this guy's hands. He is a notoriously huge jobber though.

DC

Fernus

Just bloodlusted MMH pretty much. Has taken on the entire League multiple times. Extremely OP mindrape capability.

Full List:

11. A-Tier

Marvel

Ronan the Accuser

Just bloodlusted MMH pretty much. Has taken on the entire League multiple times. Extremely OP mindrape capability.

DC

Aquaman

Great strength and speed plus his trident is very powerful piercing-wise.

Full List:

What did you make of that?

Yes it is purely one person's opinion on the hierarchy of Marvel and DC's most powerful beings, but it is a super comprehensive list of godly "who's who's" from the universes of both comic book giants. And a real feat of list work!
