@_kingoflatveria: I did read it somewhere. I said not sure.

Rulk's a high tier brick. He's the opposite of a glass canon.

OT: Storm and Zatanna are glass canons, from what I've seen

Black bolt I guess, his durability isn’t anything to scoff at, but his DC far out does his durability.

Spider-Man. He’s not the best example, but I think his not-holding-back strength far outweighs his durability. He is effected by non-superhuman attacks to a small degree, and if his durability matched his strength, he should barely even notice a punch from someone like DareDevil.

Lot's of really bad example's.The op gave a prime example. Guy with a high damage output but with no defensive abilities. People are listing multiple characters that have natural defenses, higher than a normal person.

Many characters with abilities that can auto-win tend to be glass cannons so they can be taken out. Zatanna, Dr Strange, the funny thing is that they walk around being vulnerable, Zatanna has made herself immune to physical harm but I guess that's how plot works.

Not opposite. High tier bricks have high damage outputs. That's what super strength gives you.

I think a glass cannon should defined as someone who can blow up a lot of shit but only has human level durability. I don't think a lot of these examples meet the requirement. I wouldn't define Spider-Man as a glass cannon since he has taken hits from super humans that would kill regular humans.

I would say cyclops, storm, and zatanna meet the bill.

@jashro44: So does this mean Genos isn't a glass cannon? Because his DC is insane and his durability is above peak human but still sucks in comparison to a majority of mid tiers to low high tiers in the OPM universe.

Storm, Zatanna, Raven... all of them are capable of very high damage output, all of them fall over if they get hit in the head with a small rock.

Doctor Strange is the most powerful glass canon I can think of, dude imis crazy powerful but if someone with a gun somehow managed to catch him off guard he'd die like everyone else.

Yeah, classifying Spidey as a glass cannon means you haven't really read his books. Guess what is one of his most famous defining traits? His perseverance and endurance. He doesn't just not give up because of his willpower, but also because his body could physically handle the stress. He's been crushed beneath buildings before, albeit with severe injuries. Even the nerfed down MCU Spidey isn't a glass cannon because of that. He's been drowned, stabbed, burned and even shot with bullets, and the guy still walked away saving the world like it's Tuesday.

Heck, he's taken an acid bath that killed a person in an instant and survived (even if it was his webbing that saved him, he still got acid-burned). And ironically, that's also from a story arc that features the Chameleon.

Got to thinking about this topic today. The ultimate glass cannon I know of is Anthony Fremont. Godlike power, can make basically anything happen with his mind, but physically he’s a just an ordinary six year old kid, with no speed or durability. Any speedster would probably destroy him.

Zatanna(Dc), Deoyxs(Pokémon), Scarlet Witch(Mcu), Doctor Strange(Mcu), Poison Ivy(Dc), And Black Canary. Just the few off the top of my head. A glass cannon is a Charecter That is very powerful but has very low durability.

-Zatanna can do almost anything with magic but has human level durability

-Deoyxs has one of the highest attack and special attack out of all of the Pokémon universe, but has some of the lowest defense stats

-Scarlet Witch Is one of the most powerful Mcu charecters but she can be taken out with a strong enough hit. She did get blasted through a few windows but her durability is nothing too far above peak human

-Doctor Strange for the same reasons as Wanda

-Poison Ivy is so powerful that she can control plants on a worldwide basis(that includes justice ledge members like Superman and Wonder Woman). But she can also be taken out with a strong enough attack. Although she does have enhanced durability from her chemicals

-Black Canary can scream strong enough to harm Superman, kill amazo, and destroy a city, and she is one of the top 7 best fighters in the dc universe. But her durability is just peak human.
