So who's supposed to be more powerful? Thor or the Heralds of Galactus?
Depending on which herald...
Silver Surfer is generally portrayed as the most powerful...
And Thor has a pretty good record against him.
Beta Ray Bill couldn't really beat Stardust though he had him on the ropes at times.
The herald IMO from most powerful to least powerful are...
Firelord (Has pretty much stalemated Thor on most of their fights actually)
Airwalker (Had Thor beat and at his mercy at one point before Thor went 'all out')
and Fallen One (though I'm not sure where I'd place him...)
Did I miss any?
You forgot Human Torch.
The Asgardian construct the Destroyer as well....
But who likes the HUman Torch anyway?
You hate everyone
Showing my ignorance again, but I wasn't aware that it was generally accepted Thor was in the top tier of badasses. I knew Surfer was.
I just thought Thor was really strong and could shoot lightning and stuff. I've obviously never read his titles as you can tell.
What is Thor's record against Surfer because if Firelord and Airwalker can stifle Thor then any herald above them in the power ranking should give Thor a tough time.
Nah I just don't like sissy characters who complain about being rich millionaires that the entire world adores, etc. etc.
Like the whole X-men team.
thor's beaten surfer 2-3 times. Blood and Thunder, thor took out surfer and BRB at the same time basically. But I'd say that Thor and Surfer are the two top dogs in the Marvel U for superheroes, fight could generally go either way. But surfer's main weakness is his being a pacifist, and thor being a warrior for thousands of years....well that gives him the slight edge to take out the surfer. The other heralds should be a bit easier for Thor to beat. Now if you're talking about lord Thor, then he pummels them all at the same time in minutes
He needs to stop pussyfooting it on earth following what Nick Fury tells him and get his ass to the Annihilation Wave.
Now here's an even BETTER question. Superman or Thor? Hmmmmm?
I give it to Thor what with the magic and stuff.
in JLA/Avengers, Thor gets knocked out then Superman gets taken out very easily by a couple avengers. I think it was more of DC crying that Thor CANNOT take out their most powerful superhero, bad for business I think they're fairly evenly matched though, but I personally think that thor should be able to take out supes using his mystical lightning, anti-force blasts, godblast (which would probably really hurt supes). But meh.
Well that stupid magical sword that Wonder Woman has can make superman bleed. I figure a magical warhammer to the skull would fuck him up pretty good.
Hell, I think Dr. Strange could probably by the moons of ashanti Supes.
yea, supes would be all against strange. Thor knows some magic too, but he rarely ever uses it. Rune King Thor tho
Thor>Superman busiek is hack whose bias was clearly dc. sucks that marvel allowed that.
current surfer is probably the strongest with his recent upgrade. sentry/thor a close second.
can you explain surfer's upgrade?
galactus made him his herald again in his annihilation mini.
i'll post some scans up.
I take it becoming a herald again would have made him more powerful?
did galactus give him new powers?
He didn't gain any new powers; he gained a "sense of urgency" so to say. He's no longer "wanderer of the spaceways." He has a purpose. So, instead of being the most powerful tool in the shed, he's the most powerful tool in the field, doing his thing.
Before, the Surfer got beat by wanting to find out "what's going on." While he's doing that and trying to calm the fight with due force, he gets hit up a little. But now, since he has a reason to do stuff, he can brush those petty questions aside and kick ass.
Think of it this way: Evander Holyfield sitting at home on his ass watching TV and eating chips (Old Surfer) or Evander Holyfield in the ring beating ass (new surfer).
we will see, hopefully he's not a pansy
Hopefully he kills Ravenous for revenge of killing Nova (not before a brief interaction before Nova and SS to show they know eachother )
