@apex_pretador:

Here is my explanation about some of these : It is Thanos with no device (neither IG, nor HOTU, nor Cosmic Cube). Without these features, I don't think he is so powerful.

Beyonders killed the Living Tribunal recently, and all the others Cosmic Entities, and a couple of weeks ago, it was still a possibility that they killed TOAA. They were able to destroy the marvel universe, I don't know who is more powerful than them but TOAA. They are described as omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

The Dreaming Celestial is on par with the Fulcrum, who is an aspect of TOAA, isn't he ? It makes him really powerful. He appears to have transcended Celestial state of being so he might have more power than any other known Celestial, it makes him more powerful than Scathan, who is more powerful than Protege who almost defeated the Living Tribunal.

Gladiator is not here because in my opinion, he is not as strong as Hulk, and Hulk is #100. For the same reason, Balder, Captain Marvel, Nova, Quasar, Thor, Hyperion, Juggernaut and many others are not in this ranking despite their power.

You are right Nemesis is too low, I corrected that.

  • A long time ago, thanos fought and stalemated Thor amped with Warrior madness and POWER GEM
  • After this fight, he fights and stalemates Bloodlusted Odin, while not even fighting back or using his shields etc.
  • Since then , thanos has only gotten stronger (recieved multiple amps).
  • He has knocked around Galactus with his blasts.
  • He has walked through the ANNIHILATORS like nothing, Adam warlock with a fraction of his power one-shotted Silver Surfer, fearing that thanos might One- Hit - kill him.
  • Although it seems you have upped him a couple of positions, I feel like he must be atleast on par with Odin, if not above him, based on their battle.

Beyonders killed the Living Tribunal recently, and all the others Cosmic Entities, and a couple of weeks ago,

Something PR Beyonder could've done too.

it was still a possibility that they killed TOAA.

It is not. TOAA Appeared in a recent comic with thanos & Warlock.

They were able to destroy the marvel universe, I don't know who is more powerful than them but TOAA. They are described as omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

PR Beyonder was so powerful that a million times of marvel multiverses was just a drop of water to him, PR Molecule man, FAR more powerful than LT described beyonder as being so much powerful than him that it was incomparable, just like captain america & PR molecule man.

Also, TOAA is stated to be the ONLY truly omnipotent / omniscient / omnipresent supreme being no matter what happens.

The Dreaming Celestial is on par with the Fulcrum,

Based on?

who is an aspect of TOAA,

based on?

isn't he ? It makes him really powerful. He appears to have transcended Celestial state of being so he might have more power than any other known Celestial, it makes him more powerful than Scathan, who is more powerful than Protege who almost defeated the Living Tribunal.

What are feats of dreaming celestial? Didn't a group of multiple celestials beat him?

Gladiator is not here because in my opinion, he is not as strong as Hulk, and Hulk is #100. For the same reason, Balder, Captain Marvel, Nova, Quasar, Thor, Hyperion, Juggernaut and many others are not in this ranking despite their power.

Didn't you have Thor at 100? Anyways, gladiator has better feats than these people - destroying planets with couple punches / punching hard enough to create a star / being called a worthy enemy & Dangerous by Thanos himself / flying at 100x light speed etc.

He should be above terrax atleast.

You are right Nemesis is too low, I corrected that.

Seems you corrected Tyrant too.

But fallen one is still too high. I see no reason to beileve he is above surfer

@apex_pretador: I believe the Fallen one's Dark matter is something quite powerful. I overestimated it for sure but I think he is above Terrax.

I know this is not what happened, this is why I said "this was a possibility" and not "this is". The beyonders are extremely powerful, not enough to be on par with the One-Above-All, but I believe they are the most powerful beings after TOAA according to their recent feats. I've read many comments saying that they are the most powerful beings after TOAA, even more powerful than Thanos with Heart of the Universe.
Maybe that the Fulcrum is more powerful than them but I don't think so.


For The Dreaming Celestial, he is considered as an equal by The Fulcrum who is supposed by many as a part/aspect/manifestation of TOAA (even by Comicvine's description).
