        They are pretty equal in power, but they are all pretty powerful. I don't think they are as powerful as Thanos when outside of their realms, but they are still above conventional herald levelers.


        It's difficult to say how powerful Thanos is without his technology. I always pegged him at around Durok level, maybe a bit higher (Durok was about 1.5x the Surfer, maybe 2x). I think Kurse would beat Thanos hand-to-hand, for example.


          A case could be made for Thanos being maybe double the power of a herald, maybe 2.5x, but I'd have trouble going much beyond that.


            The 'X' factor is Thanos' technology, IMO. Galactus almost exhausted himself breaking through his shields, and it took Odin repeated blasts. Champion and Thor needed the Power Gem to break through (or almost break through, in Tryco's case).

    Not sure I agree that Galactus almost exhausted himself. His statement was something like "Impressive technology, I have never had to exert so much effort to pierce a mere force field". But even then his attack hurt Thanos quite a bit. Or at least seemed to. Likely with what hit him before shields were up.

    Galactus did not seem exhausted at that juncture. IMO. Nore really did Odin. That said, the techs ability to temporarily thwart such powers is impressive.

I may be wrong, but I recall Galactus mentioning that he was in a weakened position when he had to face the Hunger (because of Thanos). I probably overstated the exhaustion, but he exerted a significant amount of his resources, IIRC.
