adam is good but i dont know how he can do it. adam is a schemer and has the power to do it out of all the cosmic, god types, but i dont think he can take him the way he has done before with transmutation.

Warlock can't take Thanos w/o the gem, and Thanos even beat him before with the gem.

Adam Warlock easily. He has all the powers he had with the soul gem, when he beat Thanos the first time, but now the ones he derived from it are internalized.

How can Warlock defeat Thanos ? He seems weaker now than what he was when he had the Soul Gem in his Classic Form... even with his new powers... I mean who has he beaten thats stronger than The Mad Titan ?

he doesnt need to beat anyone  more powerful then thanos to proof he can win against him. he just needs to show certain abilities that are capable of taking thanos down. if anything warlock should be able to defeat thanos using strategy which is in his character personality the only problem i see is  how he would accomplish said goal.

Huh ? Warlock doesnt seem to be as powerful as his Classic Form... when he was taking blasts from Galactus like they were Water Gun Squirts... and you cant just have certain abilities to defeat someone... you have to have them at a certain power scale...that would be like saying since The Mask can warp reality he could erase Galactus from existence... but we know that isnt so... because The Mask is not on Galactus power level... he cant generate that skill to the Power Scale needed to do so... as others could...

warlock is still a cosmic anomaly, that gives him the ability to accomplish his goals regardless of how unlikely it may seem and we still dont know all of warlocks capabilities.

i am just saying warlock can and may pull it off..

if it came to me picking by favortism i say warlock solely because he is still unpredictable.

Who said Warlock wasnt a Cosmic Force ? I am saying I dont think he is as strong as his Classic Form when he physically had the Soul Gem as an item... or at least his feats were greater back in the day...

true but it appears he still has the tk shield that he had as him that stood up to thor.. he could use it  for certain creative attacks against thanos.. i also believe he still possess many of the soul gem powers that can effect thanos. the soul disruption attack would knock thanos down seeing as his clones were susceptible to soul suck effect. more then likely this will come down to a physical attack since they are both cosmic batteries..

Hmmm... that sounds pretty good... I dont think it will be that easy to do that to Thanos though... not if he uses that Titan mind of his in this fight...

in a physical battle thanos is more durable but warlock is by far the better fighter.. he is calm collective and possess his own form of fighting skills that are efficient and not energy wasteful. i am sure warlock can come up with something using his analytical mind to end the battle as soon as possible  .

i never compared the thor soul attack to thanos... i compared the thanos gladiator clone to thanos...showing warlock soul attack.
it also shows warlocks durability  at the time. also warlock is just as resistent to transmutation as thanos if mephisto couldnt do it why should thanos be able to...remember both thanos and warlock are unique and have better understanding of reality to help them fight certain attacks on their persons.

You compared a TK Attack that Warlock had against Thor... I looked at your post.  And when Warlock fought Mephisto that was his Classic Form. Like I have said before... Warlock doesnt seem as powerful currently as his Classic Form... Thanos from what I have seen really hasnt changed... ( or we havent seen a power fluctuation based off of feats alone )... thats the core issue I am trying to show. Based on this principle alone... Thanos should have the slight advantage to win... because back in the day... both Warlock and Thanos beat each other... so if Warlock is slightly depowered... I like Thanos chances here a little bit better...

true warlock seems to be somewhat depowered,,, but who is to say how much or to what effect. his power was never fully explained in any version... also i believe he gave himself some upgrades when he was supreme being. if we go by modern feats then warlock tk is still impressive with the whole into the sun moment.. he also possess the soul power karmic blast maybe a handful of blast may be sufficient to knockout thanos.. the only comparison i made with thor was to show the strength of his tk against a powerhouse.

but by feats alone yes thanos does win against the modern warlock.

Well I dont think Warlock is far under Thanos in terms of power... thats why I said I give Thanos a " Slight Advantage " to win
...they are indeed close in terms of power still

I cant see Thanos just standing there while Warlock blasts him though... Big Purple will be moving when the attacks come

Thats What I Was Talking About... the TK against Thor or something like that

Correct... Thanos has the better feats... and thats what I am gonna go from as of now... what they have shown in the Comics... Mainly For The Fact... that both Thanos and Warlock have many great feats... and overall they arent to far apart in overall skill and power... though some may believe otherwise...

somehow i dont see purple puss running for cover or doing some mid air  agility ala spidey or DD..... while under assault from warlocks karmic blast...thanos may have superhuman reflex to catch and grab surfer, but i have never seen him be mobile enough to content with another cosmic fighter with similar speed/reflex like warlock.

do you remember how thanos stood his ground with gamora... he is not very versitile in combat.. he is just too big..

Why did people ever give Thanos the name Purple Puss ? I dont see how Thanos let characters call him that and not be angry...

Thanos handled Warlock before he was re-incarnated and Warlock hasn't gotten any weaker.He got in the cocoon to evolve to a more powerful level.We just haven't seen him really do anything yet.
