Introduction

Unicorn's status in the 616 universe is riddled with a bunch of inconsistencies. Despite the fact that there's three separate Unicorn's, all are confused for each other, and there's really no consideration of which one is which. As such, I've put all of their feats in one thread.

Regardless, Unicorn has, rather unfairly, been dubbed as a "jobber" by some people who don't know his feats. Despite a few low ends, Unicorn was consistently shown as a match for Iron Man, and, at times, his superior. I'm going to try and prove that here in this thread.

Databook Entry

No Caption Provided

Stats and fun Power Grid (All New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update #4)

Durability

No Caption Provided

No sells a strike from Iron Man (through, to be fair, Unicorn was brainwashed if that changes anything) (Iron Man #58)

No Caption Provided

Quickly recovers from a dropkick from Iron Man with a attack of his own (Tales of Suspense #56)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Scan 1/2- Shakes off multiple blows from Iron Man and responds with a counterattack using a chunk of metal (Iron Man #4)

No Caption Provided

Tanks the repulsor blasts of Young Iron Man and War Machine at once, charging through the blast itself (Iron Man #331)

Energy Projection

No Caption Provided

Fancy systematic of the Unicorn Helmet, which is the source of power for him (at least, until he mutated a organic eye to replicate the effects of the helmet itself) (The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe #14)

No Caption Provided

Can deflect multiple air-plane missiles before they target him mid air with his energy beam (Tales of Suspense #56)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Scan 1/2- A direct blast by him using the horn at close quarters nearly causes the young Tony Stark to black out through his suit (Iron Man #331)

No Caption Provided

A maximum intensity blast nearly destroys Iron Man's suit, with it only surviving because Unicorn loses patience and chooses to ram him instead. (Iron Man #4)

No Caption Provided

Almost melts Iron Man's helmet off with a blast (this would have worked if not for Iron Man's countermeasures against extreme heat, which he converted into reserve energy: if Unicorn had stuck to spamming out regular blasts, Tony would have likely lost) (Iron Man #4)

No Caption Provided

Busts a good chunk of a building (Iron Man #58)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Scan 1/2- Busts most of the top of a skyscraper, causing tons of rubble to be created (Iron Man #154)

No Caption Provided

Destroys Perun's axe (Perun is the Slavic god of thunder, akin to Thor himself) (Soviet Super Soldiers)

No Caption Provided

Liquidates through a steel dynamo with a horn beam (Tales of Suspense #56)

No Caption Provided

Matches Cyclops's optic beam with his own tech (X-Men #23)

No Caption Provided

Melts through and destroys the Titanium Man Mark 4 armor with one shot (as you can see, it was formidable enough to potentially crush Iron Man's suit) (Infinity- Heist #4)

No Caption Provided

One shots Cyclops with a energy blast (X-Men #22)

No Caption Provided

One shots Eel with a low power blast (I mean, do you need anything more to take out Eel? lol) (X-Men #23)

Scan 1/2- Overpowers Iron Man's repulsor blasts, even when he tries to overpower Unicorn with double the output by using both hands, and sends him flying into a warehouse (Iron Man #154)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Scan 1/2- Smashes down the reinforced Avengers complex using his blasts, falling all the way to the bottom. (Iron Man #114)

Energy Shield

No Caption Provided

Blocks bullets (Iron Man #4)

No Caption Provided

Intellect

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Scan 1/2/3- Hides a time bomb successfully enough that Iron Man's tech can't find it mid battle, and Tony has to concede in order to protect everyone else. (Tales of Suspense #56)

Magnetic Manipulation

No Caption Provided

Can suspend objects magnetically using a belt feature, allowing him to lift metal objects freely. Unicorn doesn't use this against Iron Man because his writers don't want to write him as another Magneto. (Tales of Suspense #56)

No Caption Provided

Pulls a truck close to him rather quickly using this feature. (Iron Man #113)

Casually dodges Syntheizer's electromagnetic sound blasts multiple times (Soviet Super Soldiers)

Scan 1/2- Through illegal radiation experiments done by the Soviets, Unicorn is made even stronger than his already impressive physical stats, capable of ripping apart steel with his bare hands (Iron Man #4)

No Caption Provided

Tosses fodder over his head like it's nothing (Tales of Suspense #56)

No Caption Provided

Sends Iron Man flying with a backhand (Iron Man #113)

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Scan 1/2- One shots Iron Man with a sucker punch (well, a kick in this case) leaving him knocked out long enough for him to escape before he can recover. (Iron Man #16)

Technology

No Caption Provided

Suspends a large piece of rubble in the air and manages to massively deplete Iron Man's offence in the process (Iron Man #113)

No Caption Provided

Thermal units in Unicorn's helmet can melt through Iceman's ice when he attempts to freeze him (X-Men #22)

No Caption Provided

Unicorn's jet boots stun Iron Man with a quick blast of them (Iron Man #114)

Conclusion

All in all, Unicorn definitely isn't a high tier threat, but he's a solid and actually rather deadly mid tier foe who can tangle with guys above his usual paygrade. I definitely wouldn't call him a "jobber" unless you take his current status of being a insane dude in a Gulag.

Great job. Surprised he doesn't have too many feats outside of facing Iron Man.

@thegreysoldier: Thanks!

I mean idk what else he can be called that doesn't sound worse, lol.

Nice, maybe you should try one of The Melters. the original one is Bruno Horgan and the current one is Christopher Colchiss

Melter is actually a jobber and not worth going through. Legit just not good.

Great job. Surprised he doesn't have too many feats outside of facing Iron Man.

To be fair, Unicorn's not the most popular character and I expected him to not have a ton anyway.

I mean, you could just alternatively follow me, which would do the same thing anyway. Your call.

Could do Dragon Man at some point, through it doesn't have a ton outside of classic appearances.

201st RT? Jeez. Good job then.

Thanks ANTHP, I'm goat

Nah man Unicorn's Soviet experiments made him impressively flexible as well, who knew
