You have.....unleashed me!

Introduction

Atum's the kind of beast that Odin is scared of and refused to fight. Atum is the nightmare that Mephisto begged for mercy from, and received none. He is the monster that even the mighty Thor, with all of his pride and glory, admitted that he could never defeat.

Born from Gaea, Atum, the first new god, before Odin or Zeus, soon became the most powerful after draining the souls of nearly all Elder Gods. Through this process, he became the Demogorge, a creature born of fury and hunger, that, to this day, remains undefeated. It is said that when the end comes, Atum will consume all of the pantheons, and destroy all gods that have ever existed or may do so in the future.

Databook Entries

No Caption Provided

As Atum, he has power equal to Odin and Zeus. As the Demogorge, he becomes unknowingly more powerful than them. (All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #3)

No Caption Provided

Can survive the pressure inside a star, can drain massive amounts of energy, and is dubbed as "virtually unstoppable". (Thor and Hercules Encyclopaedia Mythologica)

Durability

No Caption Provided

The Demogorge exists outside of time and space, thus immune to the usual effects of them. (The Mighty Thor #12)

No Caption Provided

Atum fights Set ( a powerful Elder God) for millions of years, with Set growing stronger with each head. This is a highly impressive feat, showing the strength and pure endurance of the Demogorge. (Iron Man Annual #10).

No Caption Provided

Atum only lets Thor and other souls go due to him respecting the cosmic order and realising they had a higher function to do before their death. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Laughs at Hercules trying to attack him. This was while he was hungry and somewhat weaker. (Incredible Hercules #119)

No Caption Provided

No sells and nullifies the combined energy attacks of Pluto, Hela, Ereshkigal, Yama and Mephisto. (Thor annual #10)

No Caption Provided

No sells the combined attacks of Set, Chthon, and Set's offspring. (Silver Surfer Annual #2)

No Caption Provided

Tanks and feeds on the full power of the Ankh, a device capable of destroying entire mountains and shattering planets. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Tanks the arrows of Tawa, a demigod that has arrows empowered with the sun's power. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

The force of Atum's giving back of all of his souls is compared to the very universe shaking. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Thor admits that Atum is far too powerful to be beaten. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Thor's Mjölnir bounces off him with no effect. (Thor Annual #10)

Strength

No Caption Provided

Atum is capable of flying at FTL speeds in his normal self, and slices the head off Set with his first attack. (Iron Man Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Atum states that, when the time comes, he will destroy and eat the souls of all pantheons, as his purpose. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Defeats Set and banishes him into his own dimension. (Iron Man Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

What's more impressive about this feat is that Set was described in his incarnation as being "unimaginably more powerful" than before.

No Caption Provided

Destroys nearly all of the Elder Gods effortlessly taking their power and souls into his own. Only Gaea was allowed to stay on Earth, as Atum's mother. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Eats Ereshkigal with ease. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

No Caption Provided

Eats Sl'gur't, one of the two major Skull Gods. (Incredible Hercules #120)

No Caption Provided

Eats the souls of Pluto and Yama with ease. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Eventually catches up and stomps Hela. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

No sells and eats the soul of Seth, hitting him with the energy of a thousand suns. Even the author states that their battle was one sided. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

Odin states that Atum is strong enough to kill him and every other pantheon. (Thor Annual #10)

No Caption Provided

This was later stated as the extinction of all Myth-Realms, and the Skyfather beings within them.

No Caption Provided

Rips through a army of 978 pantheons with ease, having no trouble while being somewhat weakened. (Incredible Hercules #119)

No Caption Provided

Stomps Ahpuch and Mephisto with ease, taking their souls while both of them beg for their life. (Thor Annual #10)

Conclusion

You may notice that words like "stomps" or "No sold" are used a ton of times here. Well, that's simply due to the fact that Atum rips through the competition with ease, and frankly, there's not much to say of his battles- they all end horribly and quickly.

We never got to see Odin fight him, but by the sound of Odin talking about it being capable enough to destroy every God in existence, it is clear that he never stood a chance in hindsight, hence the reason why he never wanted to fight the beast himself.

My thanks this time goes to @brucerogers, who suggested this character. Considering the fun I had in doing this RT, I'd say that was a pretty damn good choice.

Oh, it's completed. I don't like uploading incomplete RT's- seems kinda anticlimactic, puts me off working on other stuff.

Ymir is a interesting character to do. As I say, if he's interesting enough to warrant my attention, I'll likely do him at some point in the future.

Well we know where Sentry's "power of a thousand suns" came from!

In all seriousness, great job on a respect thread about a character many people aren't going to be truly aware of.

I very much like Atum in concept. His simple presence remind even gods thst their time is limited and that one day, he'll be recycling them so their divine essence can become new gods.

I'm salty he doesn't show up more, but also glad because dudes like him should have an "oh shit" presence whenever they do come on the scene.

@dcandmarvelcomicfan: He pretty much is purely a Thor villain, through I use the term "villain" here loosely because he's less actually evil and more of a force of nature.

His normal sun god form is more kinder than him as the Demogorge, however.

Snowbird? Eh.....I like Alpha Flight a lot but I'd need to read through their entire run again just to get her feats, and the most part, she's just a low mid.

She can, but it's a thing that she can't really control if I recall, so it's pretty all over the place.

Atum was a Egyptian God irl, here he existed before then but was worshipped as such.
