What? Superman variants?

I would the best candidates based on available evidence would point to Superman as being a strong *maybe*, Mr Majestic as he too has survived one or two similar scale blasts. Both have the proven feats and invulnerability to say they could take the hit, maybe not left in great shape from such a blast no but they could well take it and live...

Captain Marvel/Black Adam too have the additional Mystical edge to be very serious contenders.

Moores version Of Supreme should take it square.

Superboy-Prime no problem.

Mon-el probobly fares about as well as Superman more or less given they have been clearly said to share the same powerlevel and Daxamites have a solid history.



I don't see anything to say Supreme(original), apollo, Nefaria, Icon, Sentry, Hyperion or Gladiator could take it however.

Except Nefaria's an Avengers/Thunderbolts-level threat.

Standing on a planet while it blows up is a far cry from being hit in the chest by a beam that could destroy a planet. I can't think of anyone off the top of my head that could survive it.

The Death Star ray actually displace part of its target at hyperspace speed, resolting in its disintegration. I see no reason why would a superclone resist that.

IMO those who can resist it would be the one who control their own molecules.

I don't think your "Superman should resist the damage; What was the damage?" approach is very credible to assess these things.

He seems to be able to shrug off High end energy attacks! I think He took one against Thanos's ship with Iron-man or somthing, anybody know what i'm talking about? I think that may have been at least death star worthy.

Besides that has'nt he taken blast from celestials? He seems capable of taking this! I mean the death star is a world destroying blast but still! what do you guys think?

I thought of Thor right away. I know he doesn't have the general "hard" durability of Superman clones, but his energy resistance has been insane at times. He did, in fact, take a direct hit in the face/chest from Thanos' ship, the deflection of which took out Iron Man and Mar-vell. He was knocked out but otherwise unscathed. As you also cited: he took blasts from the Celestials, without catastrophic injury, that were knocking chunks off of the All-Asgard Destroyer earlier in the same story. Among other impressive instances, he was not visibly burned (but merely dehydrated) by Superman's sustained heat vision and not disintegrated (but merely skinned) by the Destroyer's disintegration beam.

Depending on what principle the Death Star beam works on, I believe it's possible for Thor to survive with severe injury.

Liefeld's Supreme could then.He withstood Khrome's energy field,
meant to displace his cells. \:\-\!

Fine. Only one tiny detail left; The question of the magnitude involved.

Well, it wasn't an uber-sized field, but the size of a personal force-field. \(geek\)
