Quote: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.
Quote: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.
I agree that Thanos without using energy attacks, psi, or tech would probably lose to the Beyonder-enhanced Kurse in a direct fist fight.
Quote: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.
Again, without tech, I'd say that's about right, but 2.5 peak herald-levelers.
Quote: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).
Quote:When you factor in the technology, Thanos hits a bit a above his weight class. More than people suspect, IMO.
Right. I think his shields were a big help in keeping him in the fight with Odin. When I talk about Thanos, I do assume his tech is part of his formidability as Iron Man's suit is part of Stark's. And I rank Thanos higher than Hela because their only mutual opponent that I can think of other than Thor is Odin and Thanos fared notably better against Odin than Hela did.
