Being the son of Odin and Prince of Asgard, Asgardian God of Thunder Thor ranks within some of the most powerful and strongest of all superheros in the Marvel universe. The wielder of the mythical enchanted Mjolnir hammer possess superhuman strength even among Asgardian gods, and also at times able to use the omni-potent Odinforce that taps into the vast power of the cosmic.
Yet for such infinite powers on hand, Thunder God Thor is not invincible in the Marvel galaxy. Let’s take a look at the five strongest opponent that towers over even the mighty Thor.
The Incredible Hulk
Thor’s greatest and oldest rival by far, their battles have never been short of remarkable. Even mighty Thor faces difficulties when the gamma “power” allows Hulk to get angry and stronger, the strongest there is, they say. When without the Mjolnir hammer, there will only be one winner in this clash of the “titans”. Hulk smash!
General Thaddeus Ross’ Red Hulk is a intellectually sharper version of the green Hulk. Invulnerability with incredible regeneration couple with your usual unholy strength makes Red Hulk one of the most dangerous superhero in the Marvel universe too. Through strategizing, the Red Hulk was able to even use Thor’s Mjolnir hammer against the prince of Asgard himself. When you combine brain and muscle, it is just unstoppable.
Maybe he can’t easily kick the ass of Skyfather Odin, the father of Thor, yet, but Thanos is still one of the most powerful villain in the Marvel universe. And we are referring to a Thanos with or without the Infinity Gauntlet and stones. His body is resilient and tough enough to withstand even Thor’s lightning attacks, a force field so strong that even Mjolnir couldn’t break through it. Not to mention a genius intellect that allows Thanos to plan and strategize rather than just employing brute strength in every situation. Throw in superhuman strength and energy manipulating abilities and there you have it, the terrifying Mad Titan Thanos.
Sole survivor of the universe before this, Galactus is practically a god. The world devouring Galactus’ power is so vast that even the heralds that were spawned such as Silver Surfer and Stardust who with the cosmic might can get them ranked amongst the most powerful of Marvel superhero characters. In Thor – God of Thunder, the future Thor had to faced this formidable foe when Galactus came back to earth to finally consume it, and during the one-to-one combat, as powerful Thor is (abit old), there was no way Thor was able to best this god-like world consuming villain.
One of the most destructive and feared power in the entire universe. When the Phoenix force was accidentally split during the war between X-Men and Avengers, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik, Colossus and Namor were bestowed and acted as host to such god-like powers. Two of Five is able to force Thor into submission. When the Thunder God faces the actual Phoenix force, he is practically swat away by the fiery cosmic might of the Phoenix force.
