Conclusion

Foom's main strength comes from his rather impressive durability, with his mass and size giving him the ability to tank and brawl with high tier or above foes. While his own strength is limited, he has a rather underrated set of abilities, using hax in conjunction with his surprising speed and skill to throw people off his gameplan. Anyone assuming that Foom is just a dumb dragon that hits things is unknowledgeable to his true capabilities.

Big thanks to @majinblackheart for suggesting this character. Had a lot of fun getting his feats.

If you have a idea for a RT I could do, hammer a suggestion and I'll see if it is worthy enough of doing.

Nice. You could also add FFF straining Sue's forcefield from Fantastic Four #1 vol.5 to Strength section and him dodging a beam that reached Moon in a panel from that Deadpool comic to Speed section.

Also, wasn't Avengers vs Pet Avengers comic non-canon? Marvel Wiki lists it as an alternate universe.

I forgot about that force field feat, oof

Avengers vs Pet Avengers seems to be non canon, but it was listed as one of 616 Foom's appearances, so ehh?

That Deadpool feat is a strange one as well. I debated putting any of them in because the story seems strongly non canon (like, that beam blasted a hole in the Moon apparently in the past, which makes a whole bunch of stuff that happened there in other stories basically impossible)

But yeah, I'm glad you enjoyed it. You got any suggestions for stuff?

Nice work. And when it comes to suggestions, what about Dragon Man, or Blastaar?

I've been considering Blastaar for a while, to be fair. I might do him in the future.

Eh?

Deapool issue is... weird. But it's not like the events of the issue happened in the alt. universe... who knows.

How about Klaw? He's pretty cool and his power is pretty unique.

Klaw is cool, he just has a ton of appearances and most of them as him as like a background villain lol

idk, Foom in that universe was basically the same as 616, it's not like using Ult Cap feats for the 616 version. Doesn't seem like a drastic change between their stats. If there was, I'd not use those feats.

Good respect thread, one thing though.

World breaker Hulk isn't the one that used thunderclap on FFF

Hulk also made that comment about him stopping to hold back AFTER he already thunderclapped FFF.

The whole point of Hulk going WBH is him holding back completely and turning into a planet buster, when that happened, this is what FFF ended up looking like

also some cool information about his size and weight

Great respect thread. I didn't know he had skill feats like that 🤣 I might add some more feats to this thread later.
