Taking a break from SW respect threads - and now doing a Marvel character.

Zeus has been overrated on the boards, before, as per his comparisons to Odin in power. However, this has invariably led to him being underrated, especially since most users didn't seem to know about his feats, which I will compile and attempt to convey to the general public. Credit goes to Killemall for uploading some scans, especially some of the older ones, such as "Venus".

With that out of the way, respect Zeus:

Power

A few simple scans in regards to the scope of Zeus's own power.

He nullifies Loki's contract with Venus:

He stops a fight between Hercules and Thor:

He scares Ares profoundly:

This time, he scares both Ares and Neptune:

During his argument with Odin, it appeared that the two Skyfathers' rage shook the entire world:

"When Skyfathers shake with rage, the world does likewise."

Strength

Zeus stomps Namor:

He pimpslaps the Black Knight:

Zeus accidentally throws Hercules against a tree and beats him up:

He lifts and hurls Mount Etna on top of Typhon:

He rips the Hulk a new one in a completely unfair matchup:

Speed

During his clash with Thor, Zeus hurtles towards Mount Idna at possibly imperceptible speeds in the form of what appeared to be a meteor:

He reacts to Thor throwing Mjolnir, and stops Mjolnir in its path:

Durability

Zeus is still standing after an attack in which Photon uses all her power:

Energy Manipulation

Zeus clashes evenly with Zuras:

Zeus unleashes a blast which destroys the hall of Apollo, and plasters the Avengers against the ruins, with only Hercules being untouched due to Zeus's will. Captain America's legs are fractured such that he may never walk again:

He fires a blast that knocks a tree on Thor, briefly pinning the latter to the ground:

He unleashes a blast that leaves Thor smarting:

Zeus produces a blast that sends She-Hulk flying like a ragdoll:

When She-Hulk goads him into rage, Zeus produces an incredibly powerful blast that knocks out the Avengers:

Lightning

Zeus "rends the nigh-cloudless sky asunder" with a blast of lightning with also rends the earth asunder, visibly surprising Thor:

He generates Lightning bolts which scatter Eternals as if they were mere straws in the storm winds:

In the body of a child, he stomps a troll with Lightning:

In the body of a child, he one-shots "the most powerful Dark Elf":

Zeus can control the weather:

Zeus increases Venus's power:

Healing

After Namor and She-Hulk are knocked unconscious, Zeus causes them to regain consciousness for him to beat them up again:

Debilitation

The Hulk's physical strength is debilitated as a result of being hit by Zeus. His regeneration is also slowed so that he can only regenerate in time for the vultures to be fed. The Hulk remains weakened for a whole three days:

Shapeshifting

Zeus displays shapeshifting powers:

Interdimensional Teleportation

Zeus one-shots Pluto with BFR, banishing him back to Hades:

Nice. He's definitely powerful, but I still don't think he's equal to Odin. Especially since these scans are all over the place in terms of Era's.

Would be nice if they fleshed him out some more,

@rustyroy: Thanks.

Great job! Long overdue.

Thanks, I suppose that the fact that there wasn't a Zeus thread up yet was one of the reasons I wanted to make one.

Nice. He's definitely powerful, but I still don't think he's equal to Odin. Especially since these scans are all over the place in terms of Era's.

Hmm..... for me, it isn't so much that his feats are all over the place, but just that they don't rival Odin's multi-galactic busting. These feats would make him planetary at best, unless, going off the most recent scan in which he was arguing with Odin, he may be solar-system level if he could shake an entire world with his rage.

Would be nice if they fleshed him out some more,

Certainly. He's been around for longer than Odin and has had less than a quarter of Odin's appearances, somehow.

Awesome work.

Appreciate the comments.

What SW threads have you done?

You can find them all on my blog page. I've made some for Abeloth, Obi-Wan, Count Dooku and Kreia.

@shootingnova: This is amazing,dude. I know you're into mythology stuff,and Zeus is HIGHLY underrated. The Greek World of Marvel is almost like the Nordic world in terms of vastness,and I am still waiting for Hercules to get his power back.

@shootingnova: When I was referring to "all over the place" I meant era of scans. As in silver age/modern age. I do not really consider Silver Age feats relevant for anyone, even if hasn't been retconned by Marvel. Writing was too different back then.

I agree he is well above your standard power house of Hulk, Thor, Superman, etc. And probably solidly above SS too. Just not quite Odin level - again by feats.

It's not as if those feats couldn't be performed by Zeus in this age either. I'd just count them all, especially given how little feats Zeus has in the first place.

@asgardianbrony: Zeus on his own would stand zero chance against Galactus. Even Odin doesn't have sufficient power to beat Galactus. This showing was a Zeus who was possessed and amped by Mikaboshi. There's a reason why this feat wasn't used.

Interesting. Why do you think that? I mean he was starving in Mighty Thir yet Odin got stomped still (even tho Thor damaged Galactus even beofre Odin attacked).

@asgardianbrony: For some reason I wrote "Scarier" instead of "Scrier". Anyway, Galactus used his Powers to beat him and since he hungers IT made him weaker even more as the more power he uses the weaker he becomes if he isn't Fed (Unless we are talking about the one from Hickman's F.F.).

@dcbicthes: Odin did not go straight into the Odinsleep after he crashed to earth. He animated the Destroyer with his spirit then when Galactus left he reentered his body and had that convo with Thor.

The reason Zues doesn't get as much love from Marvel is probably because of how much Greek myth is wound into Wonder Woman.

Though I think at one point he also took control of Mjolnir away from Thor.

Here's a decent power feat for Zeus; his, Vishnu's and Odin's blasts are noted as being capable of sending a world reeling out of it's orbit:

@shootingnova:

Yeah, the Classic comics are kinda inconsistent; sometimes destroying solar systems is treated like such a big deal for Molecule Man, yet it's meh for Galactus who would die to Owen without so much as a nanosecond struggle.

At other times, the Skyfathers are hyped as galaxy busters individually, but then... Combined they can reel planets out of orbit :/

Also, are you gonna make a Brahma or Vishnu Respect Thread? Those two are pretty powerful.

Shiva, their equal, wasn't stomping Thor, so they're not that overwhelming.

@shootingnova: That was originally Shiva, but was then later retconned to it being Shiva's/Vishnu's/Brahma's inferior Indra. And Thor just got amplified by getting a portion of power from every Skyfather from every pantheon when he fought Indra, and still only won a close match.
