lol what? Aside from the fact that Apex is a member of Vines DBZ fanbase. There is no superiority complex. Current god tiers are easily on Thanos's level if not stronger. Infact anyone comparable to Beerus would beat Thanos.

@emperorthanos:I didn't say the fanbase had a complex as a whole, I'm a fan of DBZ too. But some people have been getting outta pocket with the powerups/scaling and the new forms and what not and the inevitable "X DBZS character vs Superman" discussions are annoying. I just wanna see a decent debate.

Didn't know Jiren had enough feats for a CaV. T4V anyway though.

Thanos the mad titan

Thanos wiki page intro:

Born to the Eternals Mentor and Sui-San, Thanos was subject to the Deviant gene at birth. As a result, Thanos became like that of a 'mutant' of Titan (the sixth orbiting moon of Saturn) where he developed a purple, hide-like skin along with strength and other physical abilities far surpassing that of other Titans.

This mutation also augmented the powers he inherently possessed as a descendant of the Eternals. Growing to become the most powerful Titan, his skin developed in such a fashion so as to allow the Titan to not only absorb cosmic energy on a atomic level, but also then manipulate it as kinetic force via conscious choice

Strength and striking power:

Thanos is strong enough to go toe to toe with a bloodlusted, amped, power-gemmed Thor who was one-shotting characters like drax and silver surfer, and even before getting the gem, was destroying planets as a side effect of hitting someone else.

Part 1: Thanos doesn't take Thor seriously

Thor gets teleported to Thanos's home. Thanos blasts him once, and thinks he's done, but remember Thor got TWO powerups. The mad titan opens up shields, and tries to handle Thor casually, but Thor is able to land some hits, because Thanos is caught off-guard by the new-found power of Thor.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

Thanos smiles and shrugged it all, a beatdown from an amped, bloodlusted power gem Thor.

Part 2: Thanos takes Thor seriously:

Thanos SPECIFICALLY mentions that now he seriously starts fighting.

He harms Thor with his punches, and starts fighting evenly. Infact, Thanos has a brief advantage if anything: (Thanos landed 4 hits compared thor landing 3)

Both of them harmed each other, neither was winning.

Order is right to left

Part 3: Thanos gets bored:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Thanos specifically mentions THRICE that he got bored of it, that's why he sealed off Thor, not because he was in danger of losing.

He also has several more feats.

He in his weakest incarnation, BY FAR, wrestles a star-buster and it blows up the planet as a side effect.

Casually beats surfer to death with a few punches (while laughing)

Power output:

Thanos loves using massive energy blasts.

Thanos one-shots cancerverse hulk while barely being able to stand
Thanos one-shots cancerverse hulk while barely being able to stand
Sends Galactus flying away against his will and harms him
Sends Galactus flying away against his will and harms him

Durability:

The biggest asset Thanos has here.

Part 1: His shields:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Order reversed)

Not even Galactus can one shot them, and needs to exert a lot of effort.

Part 2: His own self

Thanos is exceptionally durable. He can survive all-out assault from Thor without any effect.

Part 1

Part 2

Thanos TOTALLY no-sells Thor. Who else could no-sell Thor like that? Thor can't even affect him.

Neither can surfer's full force cosmic blasts.

Speed/Reflexes:

No Caption Provided

Reacts to a bullrushing Hulk (Hulk has legit super-speed) and blasts him. Also an energy projection feat

Versatility:

  • Telepathy
  • Telekinesis
  • Matter Manipulation
  • Energy Manipulation
  • Genius level intellect
  • Teleportation
  • Can create force-fields

Summary:

Thanos is a powerful foe, who will be shown in greater details in next posts, but this one shows he is not someone to be messed with.
