The assumption is that a character is not above tier until he PROVES it. He didn't. He beat Hulk when Hulk was not sufficiently made. He also beat Thor with some initial trickery and was happy he was able to do it. Then Thor showed him was real power was.


> That nobody listens. Here you are again making snap judgements based on a single defeat... at the hands of Marvel's two biggest guns. Of course no villain will have long term victory over the established heros- that's the nature of comics. This includes Kurse and Mangog and Doomsday and any other villain you want to name. The big difference between Rulk and Konvict is that Rulk is just another aspect of Hulk's power when in the hands of another. Every feat Rulk accomplishes spoke of Hulk's power and potential. Konvict was a new and separate entity alltogether. Rulk was also a good deal more powerful than Konvict, by the way... just to clear that up.

Or, it could be when he exerts himself for a sustained period. Konvict is Superman level in strength, again, extremely high. But he can't fly and I doubt he can jump to the moon. I'd probably rate Konvict slightly above Rulk.

To think Rulk above Thor, Surfer, etc.... You don't see them saying things like "Oh no, I'm in space!  Better hold my breath."
