Biography:

On a trip deep in Africa, missionary William Matthews stumbled on a being of incomprehensible power lying dormant. Irradiated by the being's powers, Matthews was driven mad, filled with visions of the multiverse, and imbued with a sense of purpose. Matthews took on the being's name of Gog, and embarked on a trip through space and time.

As one of the most prolific time travellers in DC, the exact order of his journey is unclear, as is his precise origin. In each of Gog's stories he claims a different origin, and yet we are shown that Gog was driven mad by the sight of his God. There may have been three Gogs, there may have been one, all we know is that they are all William Matthews. As such, his feats will be used in a composite manner in regards to all three of his pre-flashpoint appearances, with focus on his most powerful and significant incarnation, his appearance in "The Kingdom". What we do know is that Matthews grew into a being of incredible strength, killing Superman hundreds of times, and sweeping through the Justice Leagues of multiple universes.

After developing extremely advanced time-travel technology, Gog proceeds to arm his entire timeline. Thus, there are an infinite number of instants featuring a Gog. He develops the technology to bring them all into the present together.

Gog rips open Hypertime itself, and an endless stream of Gogs pours out, all as powerful as the original. With them, he single-handedly wages war for a hundred years against The most evolved version of Doomsday and the League of Superman since he never runs out of men, but loses on purpose since he becomes bored and complacent.

Nice, it actually makes DC Herc a bit better, since he was fighting Gog for a time before getting blasted.

@wolfrazer: Its important to note that Gog's different showings have differing power. The one from the Kingdom is the real MVP as far as power is concerned.

Cool.

Puts Gog solidlywhere I had him, really good compilation. I read the Kingdom and was impressed but... he wasn't anything some good old fashion PIS couldn't handle. Still around mid-herald or so IMO.

Gog or Magog.

You can even see here in this respect thread feat of Magog. One-shooting old god Gog.
There are three categories of Gog or Magog.
1) Just Magog. Violent antihero without problems with Superman. Kingdom Come Magog, Pre-New 52 Magog.
2) Just Gog. Old God of Third World.
3) Gog/Magog. Magically empowered angry on Superman guy who wants revenge.
Kingdom Come Gog, Pre-New 52 Gog, New 52 Magog.
And with exception of Old God Gog this guys look like so simular that they can be alternative versions of each other.
Pre-New 52 Gog and Magog were both empowered by Old God Gog, by the way.

Most of the feats listed here.

Surfer is High-Herlad, not mid

do literally everything regarding transmutation and energy absorption

Does he have the feats to absorb energy from several KC Powerhouses and transmute Superman?

@rubear: New 52 Mangog isn't related to Pre-New 52 Gog, New 52 Mangog is empowered by Circe, IIRC, and he hates the entire JLA because they failed to save his mother during the JL: Origin story arc, on top of that he's just a kid.

This is the guy who thinks that Midora is on the same level as a few hundred thousand soldiers with rifles.

@wf_mxyzptlk: And youre the dude who thinks Thanos would lose to Midora.

And you troll me, but fail. Must have gotten to you, buddy. My discerning opinion really made you mad. Ever prove your opinion? (Find the oxymoron? I found one kind...)

But I do still hope you have a wonderful new year.

Stay classy ;)

Midora vs Thanos is an issue which can be debated. There are arguments to be made for both sides. It's not an open and shut issue.

Midora vs a few hundred thousand men with hunting rifles is not an issue which can be debated. It is, in fact, a mind-numbingly ridiculous comparison. A guy who can flatten a planetoid with a strike against the population of a large town.

The Four Beast defeated an army of millions with no damage, and the four beast is fodder to guys who are fodder to guys who are fodder to Midora.

How can you possibly defend this? Its not the fact that you have a 'discerning' (dissenting) opinion, its the fact that you have a terrible opinion.

@firsthunter: Midora is a character from the manga Toriko. He has planet-level striking power and large planet level damage output, a ridiculous healing factor, atomic-level matter manipulation and probability manipulation.

One question: are Gog's energy absorption powers automatic, like those of Bishop? Or they must be activated consciously, like those of Silver Surfer and Captain Atom?

Just read Kingdom Come and it’s sequels. This is a fun character. I want to point out there are at least 4 Gogs, and this rt is combining feats from 3 of them. There are 3 iterations of the William Matthews Gog. First one is from The Kingdom that draws his power from the Quintessence (arguably the strongest version of the character), second is from the JSA story “Thy Kingdom Come” where his power results from interaction with the Old god Gog from the Third World, and the third William Matthews appeared around Action Comics 825, this time being a genius inventor who cracked time travel and who’s powers result from tech. All scale to Superman levels or beyond
