How is this fair, Midnighter obviously stomps. Will be interested to hear arguments for Galactus. T4V

Midnighter

No Caption Provided

Bio

Grand Regent Thragg was trained since birth to be one of the strongest, most skilled fighters, and leaders for the Viltrumite Empire. He took over as leader of his people in his late teens (Earth years) and focused his reign on finding a way for the Viltrumite Empire to move past the Scourge Virus and for his race to survive.

Comic Vine Wiki

Powers & Abilities

Thragg is a Virtumite, so he has all the standard abilities that comes with being one except he is more powerful as he was trained to be a warrior leader since birth. Although he too lacks feats he has more than enough to be above Invincible. So Thragg has/is:

  • Super strength.
  • Super speed.
  • Flight.
  • Enchanced durability.
  • Enchanced stamina/endurance.
  • A healing factor.
  • A master martial artist.
  • A master strategist.

Speed

In terms of combat/reaction speed Thragg is massively hypersonic to sub-light speed, in terms of travel speed he is LS to FTL. First up combat/reaction speed, here he casually reacts to Omni Man while blitzing Mark, remember there is no sound in space and Thragg was not expecting an attack, so he relied on pure speed.

And here he easily dodges Space Racer's attacks and catches up to him.

No Caption Provided

When normally he can fly as fast as and tag other Virtumites.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

If you need to know why those feats were impressive, you should know that all Virtumites are LS (more on this next post). Here a Virtumite blitzes Allen (someone above Omni Man) from a far away distance before he could even react, granted Allen was distacted but the travel speed alone is LS (look at the planet in the background).

No Caption Provided

Strength

This will be Thragg's main advantage. Although he does nit have plenty of feats, he only needs one to be above Boros. This one, where he trashes both Mark and Nolan:

No Caption Provided

Here he beats both of them with ease, he is also the one who injured them in the first place. The most impressive part of the scan is Omni Man saying that even when he and Mark team up, they are no match for Thragg (also a feat of skill). This is very impressive as both Omni Man and Invincible are above 500 toners and with help busted a planet.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Nolan,is equals in strength with Mark btw (scans if needed). Planet busting scan below:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Also the man helping them is weaker than both Mark and Nolan (Space Racer was helping as well though).

Durability

In terms of durability, Thragg is pretty tough being able to tank a bloodlusted Mark's strikes, only getting a small nose bleed.

No Caption Provided

Comquest, the guy Mark says he killed is a Virtumite who was more powerful than Omni Man himself (Nolan and Mark got stronger as the series progressed). Here is a scan of Mark killing him.

No Caption Provided

As for endurance, Thragg was able to fight Battle Beast for multiple days, while having his guts hanging out the entire fight.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Second scan happens before the first.

Since you said those weren't even Galactus' best feats I won't make a strategy or claim anything for now, but I do think Midnighter is stronger.

That's all for this round.

This seems like a pretty big mismatch since a full nourished Galactus isn't even planetary, but whatever T4V.

@ReallyAwfulPoster: Let me just start by saying that the only good thing about your post, was that it was on time.

No Caption Provided

Midnighter

Here are the three factors we need to discuss that will prove why Midnighter would win.

1. Battle Computer

What is Middy's battle computer? Basically, it is an omnipotent, all-knowing source of undeniable and unquestionable future scenarios. He can basically choose the future.

No Caption Provided

But not only can he choose his future, he can also predict what you will do before you even do it.

No Caption Provided

This means that all all I have to do to prove that Middy will win, is to prove that he can win, even if it is just every trillionth fight. This is best summarized by the HoFer known only as MLF

2. Galactus' Durability

Since you did not provide any feats for this category, allow me to present this completely consistent and context-free scan, of Thing and Reed taking Galactus down

No Caption Provided

But not only does Galactus fall, he is killed by the attack, one shotted

No Caption Provided

Here is another unquestionable scan, proving Thing can fight Galactus 1v1

No Caption Provided

In fact, Galactus is often highballed to skyfather. But in reality, he struggles with guys like the Sphinx

No Caption Provided

Sphinx is a being so weak that Black Bolt trashes him

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

3. Midnighter's Strength and Skill

Which means that Galactus often struggles with mid-tiers and was once even killed by the Thing (a mid-tier). Which is bad news for him, because Midnighter is no mid-tier. Midnighter is strong enough to take on Doomsday (Who is obviously a team buster)

No Caption Provided

Wreck Spartan (a high tier)

No Caption Provided

And one shot Martian Manhunter (high tier)

No Caption Provided

So Midnighter's hits should be able to easily wreck Galactus. Even if it doesn't, Middy has the skill to one shot Galan like he did to this human

No Caption Provided

And we all know Galactus is just a chubby human under a lot of armor

No Caption Provided

Counters

I will start by saying Galactus eats planets and that picture is proof

First of all that picture is non-canon. Second of all, Galactus fought a planet once, and got his butt handed to him.

No Caption Provided

Galactus is nothing more than a dust mote against Ego, the living planet. A powerless, dust mot to be accurate.

No Caption Provided

So yeah, Galactus can't beat planets, much less eat them.

Conclusion

  • Midnighter's battle computer allows him to pick his future and win every fight, no matter how small his chances are.
  • Midnighter's strength allows him to wreck high tiers.
  • Galactus is an over rated mid tier
  • Galactus is fatter than Garfield
