@rajjar: the comic just drew that scene differently, why even post that when we have actual footage of the fight?

As long as there remain viners that claim Thanos was amped when he beat Hulk. Amped Thanos would one-shot Hulk, if we go by their interpretations, since there is a world out there in the MCU alt. timelines that proves they are right. That world is the Endgame preludes.

Thanos SHOULD win. But Thanos no stones is featless.

By default, Aquaman wins.

The Russos confirmed thanos beat hulk because he was that strong.

https://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/12/02/avengers-infinity-war-how-thanos-beat-hulk/

I did not realize that. I thought it was mainly speculation.

In that case, I feel Thanos should get a comfortable win here.

So actually in that case Arthur đź’©stomps because Thanos REALLY lacks h2h feats on his own if Russo confirmed he needed power gem

They confirmed the opposite. Apparently he beat the Hulk straight up, with no gem powers.

So as i discuseed with @Mister_Surreal live action goes to first place ( canon animation in case of Arrowverse too ) then canon comics and statements. Because if we go by live actions it should be stalemate because Arthur has much better reflexes and martial atrs but inferior strenght on land but in water Aquaman just waits when Thanos drowns etc.

He has never shown that feats. As far as we know he is only considered to normal Titanian no any enhanced Titanian mutannt.

Comic back to Thanos vs Hulk/

I specially was watching this scene to see his how he fights and really either he never used gem or maybe he used it but it was hard to notice :

This would be an awesome fight. I think the location plays a factor. Near the sea or in the sea, Aquaman takes it high diff. Away from the sea, Thanos takes it mid diff.

Shouldn't Aquaman be able to stab Thanos with his trident, Thanos seems to have a weakness to sharp objects

Thanos would solo the whole League even without Stone. He curbstomp Arthur

No...

Yes, Thanos would mop the floor with Aquaman here, but Superman should be more than enough to put Thanos to sleep if he has no stones at all. Supes is way faster and more skilled than Hulk, also stronger and more durable too.

Hulk > Superman ... mmmmmm nope !

I would put in that order: Superman ( traited Steppy as joke who easily surpassed Arthur inside water ) >> Aquaman in water >Thor>Hulk>= Wonder Woman > Aquaman on the land. NOW IS BETTER

@extreme_pickle:

When has Thanos shown a weakness to sharp objects?

Do you mean stormbreaker?

Thanos has tanked... drax’s knifes, nebulas sword, vibranium gauntlets, and a M249 SAW shooting 5.56x45mm rounds fired by winter soldier; I may be missing some feats; but this should show he has some piercing resistance.

Granted the trident is above all of these, but not on the level of stormbreaker.

@death4bunnies: Gamora's swords (even though it was an illusion, they were implying that it could happen), besides didn't Drax hit Thanos in his leg armour, Thanos was still affected by it, plus, why would he block Loki's knife attack if he had a high piercing durability?

P.S Please do correct me if I'm wrong in any of the feats I stated

Arthur stomps this fool lol. Thanos has trouble lifting the hulk who weighed less than 2 tons, while Arthur lifted the submarine. Thanos had trouble stopping cap's hand, while Arthur could go toe to toe with dceu supes.

@extreme_pickle:

I don’t believe Drax pierced him, he knocked Thanos to a knee, by hitting him in the back of the knee. The knives acted in a similar way as billy clubs due to Thanos’ peircing durability.

I’m not sure the Gamora feat counts, for the reasons you said. It was an illusion, and Thanos wanted to see how Gamora would react to killing him.

As to Loki’s knife, he did just get the space stone; and he seems to like to “try them out” when he first gets them. In theory Loki’s knife is the only thing I ever remember peircing Thor, so maybe it’s powerful??? Either way I don’t think blocking or stopping an attack equates to not being able to take it, especially a weapon of unknown origin wielded by an asgardian.

@luminoushydra: Thanos didn't have trouble with Cap, in the battle on titan he knocked Drax down in a single punch, besides he overpowered the hulk fairly easily and kicked thor away like thor was nothing, I believe all three of those are stronger than captain america

Thanos is definitely overwanked but yeah. Arthur isn't that powerful on the land.

In water even Atlanna or simple fish will curbstomp him because he will die of drowning

@extreme_pickle: Hulk was jobbing, Thor was weak. Thanos is not far above cap. He's not that strong. Arthur could rekt him pretty easily.

Um, there is nothing stopping Aquaman from summoning his kraken or some shit considering where they are fighting, or summon something lesser and get Thanos in the water, H2H only* Thanos wins, but not easily because Aquaman can take a beating,

@luminoushydra:

Hulk was jobbing against Thanos?

I don’t think you know what that term means.

Thanos strait up overpowered hulk, when he pulled Hulks hands off his neck.

Jobbing implies that hulk didn’t use his full power set, or that he lost to a weaker opponent.

Hulk lost in a straight up fight, that the Russo’s wrote specifically to establish Thanos’ strength level... at that is marginally above hulk.

@death4bunnies: lol if hulk wasn't jobbing a single punch would send thanos flying and hulk wouldnt be ko'ed by thanos' weak punches. the hulkbuster hits harder than thanos and hulk can send heavier things than thanos flying, so why was Thanos still rooted? It's Hulk who is jobbing.

@man_of_miracles: normal humans can't even move Luke cage's head in the MCU by punching. Cap could move his head by punching. Therefore the gap between Thanos and cap is smaller than Luke and normal humans. When I say not far above, I mean that the gap at most is the difference between Luke Cage and a normal human being.

Aquaman’s trident can probably pierce him, so potentially Arthur.

@luminoushydra: Thanos shredded Ironman't suit with pure strength. He also tanked a building sized object falling on him. Saying that he isn't much higher than Cap level just insane.

@luminoushydra:

Wait, what? Are you suggesting that how far someone hits someone is a good estimation of how hard they hit them? Like how every time hulk hit abomination, he went flying, oh wait that didn’t happen.

I mean sending things flying is cool and all but Thanos dropped the hulk in like 10 seconds, compared to how the hulkbuster was fairing.

I think I can make this real easy for you.

Hulk caught a punch from and then overpowered the hulkbuster; with pure strength. So Hulk > hulkbuster in strength.

Thanos removed Hulks hands from his neck with pure strength. So Thanos > Hulk.

The most important part, the part that your ignoring, is that the Russo’s made that fight specifically to show that Thanos was stronger than Hulk. Then it was shown on screen. It seems to me that your discounting what the writers intentions were, and what we saw on screen; for some kinda head cannon.

It’s not jobbing, it’s clear powerlevels.

Thanos crushed visions head with 2 fingers; was vision jobbing his durability?

@death4bunnies: You are ignoring the fact that the Hulk that fought Abomination wasn't very strong. He was at best, slightly above spiderman level compared to the Hulk that appeared in the next few movies.

Lol the rest is just mcu fanboy circular reasoning. You're trying to prove something by already assuming it is true. Like i said, Hulk in IW wasnt as strong as hulk in previous movies, so all his strength feats don't count. He was jobbing. Normal hulk would stomp Thanos.

Vision was weak the whole movie after he was stabbed. So you cant use vision as a feat for thanos AND he had more stones when he killed vision.

@tonymartial: Aquaman isn’t so fast that he would dodge everyone of Thanos’s attacks. And skill doesn’t mean much when you can take snap your opponent like a twig.

@luminoushydra: He wrecked Hulk with pure strength alone. He actually K.O.ed him in 20 seconds. Even if he was jobbing, that doesn’t reduce durability. Also, Cap never did anything close to what Thanos did. He managed to eventually break Ironman’s armor after dozens of blows with his shield, Thanos shred his suit like tissue paper. Stop giving DCEU fans a bad name.
