The Mad Titan

Standard, un-amped Thanos has to destroy the celestial body on each round of this gauntlet. Whatever he can't destroy or "bust" is the round he stops at.

Unintentionally large jump between 9 and 10, apologies for that. Here is a reference chart.

Comment where he stops and why.

I was going to comment that this is a weird and overly specific question that I don't see how anyone could have an opinion on, but then I remembered what website I'm on

Stops at Saturn.

This is impossible to determine, what we do know is that Thanos can definitely bust planets as he has done so before.

However by feats we can't really determine where he ends up, by scaling he should clear as he has fought almost evenly with a confirmed galaxy buster and that's prior to his current and most recent power levels.

Still at the end of the day all of this is just speculation and we can't even remotely begin to accurately calculate where he could stop.

Clears, casually. Reason: he's Thanos there is no exceptions and you know how Thanos is treated on CV, a legit S K Y F A T H E R level T E A M B U S T E R.

Impossible to tell for sure. If I had to guess, I'd say he stops at Sirius.

You do realize that destroying Pollux would take less energy than destroying Sirius? And that destroying Betelgeuse would be even less impressive than destroying Pollux?

@revold: the energy that's needed to be introduced into a system with gravitational binding to, ahem, "unbind" it (gravitational binding energy) depends on both mass and radius of an object. If the mass is bigger, then the GBE is bigger. If the radius of an object is bigger, then GBE is smaller.

Sirius has mass of ~2 Suns and the radius of 1.7 Suns. Sirius' GBE is about 5E41 joules.

Pollux's mass is 1.9 masses of the Sun, but its radius is 8.8 times bigger than Sun's, which brings down its GBE to 9E40 joules.

Betelgeuse's wights as much as 11.6 Suns, but its radius is whooping 887 times bigger than Sun's (at the very least), which brings down the GBE even further.

So, my question to you would be... What are you doing in Comic Vine? you should be president of something.

Is this whether Thanos can one-shot an object with an attack(Energy attack, Bullrush, etc) or is it whether Thanos can destroy an object.

If it's the first then he stops at 3, if it's the 2nd he stops at 5-6.

Thanos's strength is not being able to dish out powerful hits, it's being able to tank hits from people on his level, really well.

@toratorn: Betelgeuse does have a higher yield needed to one shot it by means of vaporization though.

But if you’re only talking about fragmentation, then you’re right.

He's not destroying Neptune, how exactly would he? It's a gas giant so physical strength is useless and his blasts aren't nearly that level.

So does Thanos clear all the way to Canis Majoris though?

Thanos doesn't go around busting random planets and stars, so really hard to tell.

But he should be able to bust Sol, solely because he already outmuscled a small star buster in his weakest incarnation.

@sungsam: considering Canis Majoris is as wide as ~1500 Suns while not even having the mass of 20? Yes.

Doesn't Neptune still have a core you can blow up. Similar to how The Fallen One blew up a Gas Giant. Actually if Thanos does it that way he can probably get to the Sun by exploding the core

I can see Thanos destroying planets. But Stars should be a bit too much, while I am not sure about his power scaling so not sure here. But he does not seem solar system + level normally , Unless we are highballing our Skyfather Thanos. In that case He Galaxy busts.

He oneshot-pulverized Surfer, Hulk, Strange in the cancervers. That is a universe without death. But according to (post Annihilation) Surfer, they are just as powerful as their 616 counterparts with the exception that they don't die lol. In fact, with the Quasar feat they are confirmed way more powerful than their counterparts.

Dr Strange has galaxy level durability when you factor in his auto shields, Hulk has planet-star level durability (I forgot), and Silver Surfer is at least solar system level durability.

@kevd4wg: Oh yeah I forgot about that. It's not clear though if he set off the blast inside his ears thereby bypassing some of his durability.

But if he can indeed one shot himself, then multi-large star - solar system lvl I guess.

@shirso: Personally, I kinda see it as one Thanos didn't have to get past his shields, secondly he hit himself on both sides, and thirdly he did it to the head. It's the same way Loki one-shotted Beta Ray Bill for instance

But Loki does not go around one-shotting Thor or anything like that

@kevd4wg: I'd probably say it's his blast on Galactus

But in terms of pure output I'd say its the Times he (or weaker clones) destroyed Hunger (Universe consumer) and The Rot (half abstract) remember that this was a much weaker clone who made the universe scream with the blast
