After having a very GOOD discussion with the homie @lord_spectrum in his Doctor Strange Issue 383 thread, I decided to create this thread. Since Comicvine LOVES discussing power level all the time. Yet, I have surprised that the majority of Comicvine posters are not familiar with this power tier. It seems mostly the veteran powers are but still only a few of them. This term which is used quite frequently on other comic sites. We know what high heralds and skyfathers are? But what about transcendent tier beings?
To put it simple. Transcendent(or trans for short) tier beings in comics are those between the level of high herald and skyfather. Characteristics of trans tier beings:
1. They are mostly villains for the most part, although there are some hero ones.
2. They are usually team busters.
3. Compared to high heralds they can take on skyfathers.
4. They have potential to be multi planet/solar system busters.
5. Like I said they are on the border of skyfather.
The two most iconic trans tier characters are Thanos and Darkseid. However, they include Classic Dr Strange, Desporo, Adam Warlock/Magnus, Superboy-Prime(without PIS), Marvel Hell-Lords, King Thor, Tyrant(Depowered), Onslaught, Amazo and even potentially the Sentry(I KNOW many are gonna have my head for that one lol... But @lord_spectrum made some good points. I'll let him speak on that one).
Anyways, like I said trans tier beings are multi-planet/solar system busters. To me this is a high end trans tier feat. Here we have Magnus during Thanos Imperative TELEPORT 18 PLANETS and then destroy them like nothing!
However, in that same series he was no match for Lord-Marvell who Thanos on the other hand gave a challenge. That shows just how powerful trans tier beings are. They are basically sub-skyfather level beings. But who do you guys consider trans tier and why? Give good reasons too.
