    Hyperion

    Character » Hyperion appears in 667 issues.

    Hyperion is Marvel's first Superman pastiche. He is most often associated with the super-team known as the Squadron Supreme and was an Avenger at one point. Though he is one of many active versions across a myriad of alternate universes, Hyperion is still one of the mightiest super-humans in the Marvel Multiverse.

    I thought it was between Superman and Sentry? I personally like Gladiator and wish he was used better and not just a gage for how strong somebody else is.

    Nah it was just between Sentry and Hyperion as Superman copies. But I'm with you, Gladiator should get a lot more respect then he does.

    I actually like them both about the same. Hyperion has a nice look to him and I loved that limited series with the Squadron Supreme. That was a great storyline.

    I like Hyperion more, simply because of how bad@$$ it was when he killed everyone in that alternate timeline thingy.

    No, from his outings it would appear that Sentry is stronger and overall more powerful.

    He did after all cuase Absorbing Man to disintegrate when he exposed his to the 'exploding suns' power he contains and we do know that Absorbing Man can absorb the physical power of Thor - so that sets a benchmark.

    He seems better. I mean Sentry was beaten by the Hulk.

    No not really when you read it carefully thor always holding back when fighting so he doesn't have to kill the bad guys in some cases as for absorbing man he never absorbed all of thors power just most that he wasn't holding back besides absorbin man was playin with sentry lol you saw how open he left himself?

    Hyperion is Superman. Similar back story and powers. Sentry origin is totally different and have others powers that Supes don't have.

    Absorbing Man did not duplicate/absorb all of Thor's power because Thor was holding back....

    Please tell me that you understand how Absorbing Man's power works because your comment gives me cause for concern. Absorbing man duplicates your power level. End of story. If the power level is beyond his ability to copy, he will disintegrate like he did when he tried to absorb the power of this entire planet.

    Thor holding back (when he may hit someone) means nothing to Absorbing Man, who only touches his opponent to obtain the same power levels.

    Classic Thor physical power level was within Absorbing Man's range and so could be duplicated. AM could not however absorb Sentries power level when Sentry let the power of a 'million exploding stars' through.

    Anyway, it would now certainly appear that Sentry is more powerful than Hyperion after the demonstration of power in World War Hulk.

    1-Hype, orphaned, no planet, Alien

    5-Hype, INTELIGENT, Leader type, who gets and can keep the BABES;P!

    Sentry (VERY interesting reading, but NOT my type of a role model LOL!)

    • One HUMAN, Super MENTALY MESSED up super powered dude, who can't think for himself to well, or know when or how to use his powers, LOL.

    • MOST IMPORTANTLY! can't seem to keep the BABE Happy, as he REALY doesn't have it together up stairs:(! Unfurtunate, but nessacary to limit a character who had a Million, Billion, Trillion, BAZILLION Exploding SUNS seathing inside him at all times. Lord knows what would happen if he sneezed out one exploding suns worth of power onto the Earth LOL... Kidding.

    Best MARVEL Supes type for me...

    HYPERION for me Hands DOWN!

    And I DO LIKE Gladiator, would like to see more of him, but BLUE is not my HUE of choice

    Hyperion would be my First Choice as my Forum Character if he had as many issues and series/adventures to his name as HIM;)! But Hype is my Second choice;)!

    I think the reason I like Hyperion more is because he's a great, Marvel-type retelling of the Superman story. I love both the 80's version, and the new Supreme Power version, but the Supreme Power version is the best take on the story in my opinion.

    The Sentry is an interesting concept, but he's more of a tool to show that Superman level characters don't work in context of Marvel stories.

    How? King Hyperion can't be killed, plus he killed Galactus of his home reality.

    Even though King Hyperion said this we never got to see the battle. For all we know, the Galactus of his home dimension could have been almost dead when the encounter occurred. Due to the lack of detail, saying that King Hyperion defeated Galactus does not provide any baseline for his power level.

    Yeah, you're right about that, but still, Sentry is just a human, Hyperion is virtually immortal.

    That was more to that fact that he didn't know how to work his power than the power itself. He did the same thing when he stole the Vision's power once. He lost control of it and became intangible.

    I think both of them to be pretty one dimensional and boring characters. Might be linked to me not liking Superman either. lol

    Strangely I like Gladiator because of his back story.

    I don't care for either one of them. They can both die.

    I like JMS' take on Hyperion because its such a great twist on the Superman origin story.  The fact is, Hyperion's origin story actually makes more sense than Superman's, especially in a modern context.  Plus, it provides a logical reason for why he acts like such a boy scout: the government spooks that raised him wanted it that way!

    @CATMANEXE:  
    I like Hyperion because he isn't insane and he isn't to powerful because he got beat by Ultimate Thor
