Even though Hulk is arguably one of the strongest characters to ever exist, here are five characters from both Marvel and DC comics that are physically stronger than the Savage Hulk.
Galactus is a giant and one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe. Physically, Galactus wins by a mile, just based on his pure size, and with that size comes great strength.
Check out the size comparison in this image, Hulk literally fits into the palms of Galactus's meaning the force the Galactus can inflict will naturally be higher than Hulk's comparatively puny efforts.
Ok, so this should not be a surprise to you. If you didn't know, Darksied is a DC character who has taken Superman down multiple times. Darksied is a god and is invulnerable to bullets and high powered rockets. Standing at 9 feet tall, he is still pretty huge. He has superhuman strength as well as berserker strength. So what else does Darkseid need?
I'm not going to make a list of strong heroes without including the guy that killed Superman first. Like Darkseid, he has superhuman strength. Doomsday stands at 8 foot 10, which is shorter than the Hulk, but nonetheless, physically this guy is a beast! This guy is like a DC Hulk., but even more ruthless.
Ok, so before you all freak and say Thanos is way out of the Hulk's league, I'm talking about Thanos without the Infinity Gauntlet. Thanos without the gauntlet is still pretty strong, and he is definitely strong enough to take on the Hulk. Though he is the shortest out of all of them here, standing in at 6 foot 7, he may be the most powerful, considering the fact that he's kicked almost every Marvel characters' butt.
Lastly we have Zeus. This dude is literally a god (no joke). I mean his physique alone can stop Hulk and put him in his tracks. So I don't think there's a competition here in terms of strengths, because this dude has godly strength. He is also 6 foot 7, like Thanos, but that's not stopping him from his godly duties. He's like Galactus, but decades before.
Which character do you think could beat The Hulk?
