Quote:I never followed Ultimate Hulk, so I am trying to gauge the awesomeness of Blue Marvel's feat. How does Ultimate Hulk compare to regular Bruce Banner Hulk?
The Ultimate Universe characters started out much weaker than 616 as Marvel attempted to depict them more in line with what's possible with real world physics. You can see this in the Handbook stats. I didn't regularly read the Ultimate line, so others can correct me if I'm wrong, but my sense is that as the Ultimate characters began interacting more with other universes, particularly 616, the character levels appeared to align more with their 616 counterparts.
The current War Thor, for example, gets his power from the Ultimate Mjolnir, and he appears to be about as powerful as Jane Thor. I don't know if that means the original Ultimate Thor was at the same level as War Thor and thus Jane Thor, but Ultimate Thor was able to knock 616 Galactus through a portal and battlefield remove him. That would have been a fine showing for 616 Thor. In any case, Ultimate Hulk was getting the better of Ultimate Thor when they fought in the first volume of Ultimates, but it's hard to say how much those characters have changed power-wise since. If Ultimate Hulk's power creep is similar to Ultimate Thor's, then Ultimate Hulk should at least approach 616 Hulk in power. For what it's worth, Ultimate Hulk uses the patented Hulk "strongest one there is" line right before Blue Marvel decks him.
