Win by death
Gladiator is a planet buster.
Do you really think that characters like Ben, Tony or Namor can fight and even beat such a incredibly powerful guy?
Do you guys really think that this characters can beat a member of the Anihilators? Do you think that people like the Thing or Namor would be powerful enough to be in such a powerful group, along characters like Silver Surfer or Quasar?
@toratorn: Scans of these characters busting a planet?
Here you have Gladiator dping that, and other members of the Annihilators have done that also like Nova, SS or BRB.
Characters like Gladiator are simply in a whole different leage comparrd to the Thing, Namor, Abomination or even Sue.
@rosa_melano: considering that Ben overpowered Ronan in Ronan's first appearance, when Ben was weaker than he is now and massively handicapped by Ronan's bullshit, and considering that Gladiator consistently struggles with street tiers and mid tiers, yes, either Namor or Ben are more powerful than them.
At least Ronan has UW that makes him valuable to the team. Gladiator is just plain useless.
@toratorn: A lot of PIS.
Gladiator is the Leader of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, and a member of the Annihilators.
He has destroyed a planet, beaten Vulcan, Black Bolt, Carol Danvers in his binary form, Nova Prime, Wonder Man, Colossus or Hyperion.He has deal with Quasar or Thor.
And he has stomped the Four Fantastics.
He is one of the most powerful beings of the universe if he is well writing.
@rosa_melano: he didn't beat Black Bolt, he was overpowered in one panel and needed help on one occasion, and got wrecked by a whisper from BB on another occasion. Binary was weakened, he couldn't even scratch Wonder Man and needed to BFR him, he couldn't beat Colossus and was KOed by a falling building in that very fight, and him soloing Fantastic Four happened in a story where he was literally portrayed as the strongest being Thing ever fought that was capable of no-selling supernovae, and Gladiator was never portrayed like that at any point in his career afterwards.
On the other hand, Gladiator got one-shot by Corsair, one-shot by Gambit, got stalemated by Colossus and KOed by a building falling on top of him for several minutes, one-shot by Throg, struggled with zombies that Angela and Throg could one-shot, got KOed cold by a blast that was tanked by street tiers like Corsair and Moondragon, couldn't one-shot Human Torch, couldn't scratch Wonder Man, got stunned by Living Lightning, got hurt by a blast from Cyclops, couldn't overpower Cyclops in h2h, couldn't even hurt Thing the second time they fought, got humiliated by a weakened Hulk, couldn't hurt Cannonball with his strongest punch, got wrecked by Black Bolt twice, got put on his knees by a single hit from Jane Foster, screamed in pain from a blast that was no sold by Captain America, struggled with Heimdal, couldn't react to Wolverine, couldn't even hurt Phoenix Five members, something that Thing and Red Hulk could do, and got stomped by them when they couldn't even properly beat Rulk.
Bottom line? Gladiator sucks, deal with it.
