LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!
Real Name: Thanos
First Appearance: Iron Man Vol. 1 #55 (October, 1972)
Origin and backstory: Thanos was one of the last sons of A'Lars, progenitor of the second colony of Eternals on Titan, and Sui-San, the last survivor of the original settlement of Eternals in this moon. He was born with purple, hide-like skin and a massive body due to his Deviant Syndrome. The very first time his mother laid her eyes on the baby, she was driven mad and tried to kill him. After that, the Cosmic Ghost Rider from an alternate future came to kill the baby, but when the Penance Stare didn't work on Thanos, the Rider decided to take the baby under his wing and change the future. he Rider tried to convince Galactus to help him raise the baby, but the cosmic being refused and instead wanted to kill the baby himself. With the Watcher bearing witness, the Rider vowed to raise the baby on his own, creating an alternate timeline where Thanos grew to become an interplanetary dictator. he Guardians of the Galaxy of said timeline tried to prevent their future by stopping Frank, but he, and eventually baby Thanos, killed them all. They were subsequently greeted by Thanos' future self, who sported the same clothes Frank used as the Punisher. He brought both of them to his future, showing Frank the authoritarian world he had built on his example, including a past version of himself living with his wife Maria. Realizing the consequences of his intervention in his life, Frank killed the future Thanos and returned his baby self to the past, erasing the alternate timeline. Death appeared before Frank to confirm that his actions had nonetheless instilled the baby Thanos with the bloodlust that would make him her agent. Thanos grew up to have an introvert nature, but despite this and his unusual appearance, Thanos was well accepted by his peers. He was a mild-mannered intellectual that dreamed of becoming a scientist like his neglectful father. However, signs of his true nature started to creep up early on. For instance, he liked to draw dead animals despite vomiting at the prospect of performing a dissection. Thanos' life reached a tipping point when a mysterious girl convinced him to explore with his friends a dangerous cave to overcome his fear of killing. A cave-in separated Thanos from his friends for three days, during which he refused to even think of murdering the inoffensive creatures that lurked underground for sustenance. When he found his friends, they had been killed by the animals living in the caves. After Thanos returned to society, the same girl convinced him to go back to the cave and slaughter the critters in revenge.
By the time he was a teenager, Thanos excelled academically and learned faster than he was ever taught. He began to vivisect creatures in secret in order to gain knowledge while searching for an answer to his abnormal genetic makeup. The girl that had helped him overcome his fear of killing became his confidante. Thanos' search for answers escalated into killing fellow Titanians, carrying out the first murders in the history of Titan. Despite declaring that his first two murders were going to be the last, Thanos eventually killed again, and found out that he enjoyed it. Thanos fell in love with his confidante, who enabled and further motivated and Thanos' actions, but she rejected his advances. After murdering seventeen people in total, Thanos killed his mother in hopes of finding in her body the key to who he was, both spiritually and physically. At some point, Mephisto approached Thanos and convinced him to go to Earth and fight the Prehistoric Avengers. He left Titan afterwards, swore off killing, and found a menial job with a pirate crew with whom he explored the cosmos. As years went by, Thanos became detached and unemotional. In many different planets, he would find a partner and mate with them in hopes to feel something again, to no avail. He always abandoned them and the babies they bore him. Thanos eventually came into conflict with his captain in the pirate crew due to his disinclination for murdering. In an act of complete instinct, Thanos slaughtered him, and subsequently seized control of his crew. Thanos decided to embrace his murdering nature and returned to Titan in secret. He was approached by his old confidante and tried to court her again. She demanded that Thanos proved he belonged only to her, so he embarked on a journey to kill all of his offspring and razed every planet they stumbled upon for the sake of his love for death. Additionally, Thanos experimented on his own body, granting himself a variety of powers. Thanos' confidante became his companion, and eventually declared that for her to love Thanos, he would have to become a god, a supreme destroyer above all else. After Thanos discovered that none in his crew could see her, she revealed her true nature, that she was the physical manifestation of Death itself. Driven mad by this revelation, Thanos gave in to Death's promises of romance and used his fleet to ravage Titan. Once his armada bombarded Titan, Thanos personally descended to murder the survivors. He was confronted by the elder A'Lars, who managed to make Thanos doubt whether Death was actually by his side or if he was simply demented. Thanos spared his father solely so he could watch his son defile the cosmos and prove his sanity. Death finally kissed Thanos, but he found her embrace to be cold. Without his thirst quenched, Thanos continued his journey of destruction.
Here are his powers & abilities:
Titanian Eternal Physiology: By far the strongest and most powerful Eternal from Titan, Thanos is a superhuman mutant whose massive, heavy-bodied form was born with the capacity to synthesize cosmic energy for certain personal uses. The mad titan has increased his powers through bionic amplification, mystical enhancement and as a result of being resurrected by Death itself. He was deemed a Category 1 Life Ender by the Nova Corps, to have an "universal" threat level and to have been a one-time reality ender. Being seemingly categorized as a Cosmic-level threat, being sent by the Shi'ar Imperial Guard to the core cell of a galactic gulag.
Godlike Strength: Thanos possesses vast superhuman strength the full limits of which aren't known. Death has increased his strength beyond their original limits to levels rivaling or surpassing those of the physically strongest Eternals. He has proven capable of fighting Thor even when he had the Power Gem. His strength is so vast that he has been able to defeat the likes of the Silver Surfer, punch away an attacking Hulk, physically subduing with ease Beta Ray Bill and Ronan the Accuser (as well as casually breaking apart the latter's Universal Weapon), and, most impressively, wrestle with the mighty Tyrant, although only by being additionally empowered by an external power source. He was also able to beat in melee fight the Hulk power-enhanced Annihilus. Thanos can also augment his strength with his cosmic energy when needed. Thanos was also able to lift the Galactus Engine and recover it from the depths of Ego the Living Planet, destroy a planet in a battle with Drax (in his first incarnation), he was even able to fight hand-to-hand with a Phoenix Force empowered Thane with amped with the God Quarry. Thanos punched Thane into the planet they were fighting above and destroyed it by charging through him.
Superhuman Agility: Despite his great size, Thanos' agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete. His agility is roughly equal to that of the average Eternal. He was able to dodge a Power Gem enhanced Champion of the Universe.
Superhuman Reflexes: Thanos' reaction time is enhanced to a level that is beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete. Like his agility, his reflexes are about average for an Eternal.
Superhuman Stamina: Thanos' musculature produces almost no fatigue toxins during physical activity. As a result, he has nearly superhuman stamina in all physical activities.
Nigh-Invulnerability: Before his "death", Thanos possessed an impressive degree of resistance to physical injury, even compared to other Eternals. After his resurrection, Death increased his ability to resist injury to a much greater degree and he is nigh invulnerable. He has withstood at point blank range planet-destroying attacks without any harm. He has withstood blasts from the Silver Surfer unharmed. He withstood a battering from an enraged, Power Gem-wielding Thor with nothing but a bloody nose. He possesses such an incredible resistance to injury that he has been shown to survive point-blank blasts from Odin and Galactus. Thanos has withstood three full screams from Black Bolt, one at point-blank range, without any significant damage. He survived being subjected to an artificial singularity. He also withstood being stabbed on the chest by Wolverine's Adamantium claws without exhibiting any discomfort.
Immortality: Thanos, like all Eternals, is immortal in the sense that he is immune to all known diseases and infections and is immune to the effects of aging. Thanos is banned by Death itself from entering its realm, rendering him truly immortal. He is able to die but he will always return, no matter the severity of any injury.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his extraordinary durability, it is possible to injure Thanos. Like all Eternals, however, Thanos is capable of regenerating damaged tissue with much greater speed and efficiency than a human being. His healing powers aren't as developed as those of some Eternals. Some Eternals are capable of regenerating any destroyed tissue. Given the circumstances of his death at the hands of Drax the Destroyer during the Annihilation event, Thanos is unable to regenerate missing organs, such as a heart.
Energy Manipulation & Projection: Thanos has displayed great versatility in the use of his energy projection abilities. He has demonstrated the ability to project pure energy as a concussive force, "magnetic" energy, infrared heat-beams from his eyes, and disruptor beams, unilaterally striking separate targets with his optic blasts, as well as using his mental link to his techno-mystical chair to form vastly powerful energy shields, barriers, and force-fields but proven himself to be able to project some form of shields and barriers on his own. The exact extent of Thanos' energy projection abilities are unknown, but his blasts have been capable of knocking down the likes of the Hulk, and Thor, and to temporarily defeat four alternate incarnations of the Silver Surfer with a simple casual blast. He was also able to graze Galactus armor and blast the Devourer of Worlds off his feet and send him across the moon. By collaborating with the In-Betweener they together released the latter from his prison created by Master Order and Lord Chaos.
Telepathy: Thanos possesses strong psionic abilities. His mind is invulnerable to most forms of psychic attack and proven to be immune to mind gem. Thanos has demonstrated the ability to successfully defend himself against psychic assaults from Moondragon, and Mantis. He also managed to shut down the Maker's mind, turned the Fallen One into his herald, made the Hulk attack his fellow Avengers, and forced Conner Sims (the Anti-Man) to destroy his surroundings. Thanos also once attempted to destroy the mind of Drax the Destroyer with a powerful psychic attack called the Time-Mind Sync Warp, that plunges the victim's mind into a psychedelic dimension of insanity, causing death or incapacitation.
Matter Manipulation & Control: Thanos has demonstrated some ability to manipulate matter on the atomic level, similarly to Earthborn Eternals. On one occasion, he turned the Skrull Skragg, into stone. He also used his matter manipulation ability on Moondragon to purge the muscle controlling parasites implanted by Annihilus from her body.
Mystic Capabilities: Thanos is skilled in magic, as he has cursed Deadpool with immortality.
Flight: Thanos has shown that he is capable of flying.
Teleportation: Thanos can teleport himself across unknown distances through his link with his techno-mystical transport chair. Like all Eternals he is also able to teleport on his own. When stranded in space with Terraxia, he could neither fly, nor teleport to his rescue, presumably because his chair got destroyed in the struggle before.
Super-Genius Intelligence: Possibly Thanos' most dangerous ability is his mind. Thanos' intellect is dedicated to enhancing his own powers and to the annihilation of all life. Thanos is a genius in virtually all known fields of advanced science and has created technology far exceeding contemporary Earth science. He has also shown to quickly adapt to new battle situations, as shown in his fight with the Champion of the Universe, who outclassed him physically and whom he beat by dancing around him, blasting him with energy attacks and tricking him into destroying the planet they fought on. Thanos has remarked that, compared to himself, Bruce Banner's intelligence is only great for human standards.
Skilled Unarmed Combatant: Although he typically avoids physical combat, Thanos is a highly formidable hand to hand combatant, having been trained in the Arts of War on Titan and having millennia of combat experiences. He is particularly skillful at using a combination of his physical and energy manipulative abilities during combat. He is also a skilled swordsman, being able to overwhelm a Mjolnir-wielding Silver Surfer.
Mystical Knowledge: He also has great knowledge of arcane and mystical lore.
Real Name Majestros
First Appearance: WildC.A.T.s Vol. 1 #11 (June, 1994)
Origin: Lord Majestros was stranded on Earth along with his fellow Kherubim thousands of years ago as a result of a run in with Daemonites in Earth-space. At the time of the crash to Earth, Majestic was a great and powerful warlord and commander of all Kherubim forces on the ship with him. Once on Earth, he devoted his life not only to the battle against the Daemonites, but to the fight against evil in all its forms. Majestros has fought on the side of good for so long that his exploits have been the basis of many myths and legends. He was seen defending Christians from lions at the Roman Colosseum when the WildC.A.T.s went back in time and he was also a member of The Big Three (along with The High and Maximum Man), a team that fought during WW2. Though he's been a hero for thousands of years, he only became a (costumed) superhero in the 40's, and he is best known in the Wildstorm universe for his adventures in the 40's, 50's and 60's.
Here are his powers, abilities, equipment and weapons:
Kherubim Warlord Physiology: Mr. Majestic is part of a nearly immortal race of warriors known as the Kherubim. Unlike the lesser caste however he is a Kherubim of imperial blood offering a host of cosmic tier physical and mental abilities blessed upon all high lords or his caste.
Enlightenment/Drahn Evolution: At a point in his life Majestros had been evolved beyond his limits by the D'rahn, enhancing all of his naturally high abilities tenfold. According to Nemesis, Majestic was officially the most powerful Warlord on Khera. He was also referred to as the most powerful being on Earth.
Invulnerability: Majestic's durability is almost equal to Superman's. Majestic has withstood a nuclear bomb and suffered no ill effects afterward.
Magic Resistance: Majestros' resilience stems even to mystical affliction. Spells of petrification caste by minions of the arch-mage Tapestry had little to no effect on him.
Immeasurable Superhuman Strength: Mr. Majestic possesses virtually immeasurable strength, displayed when he moved planets and moons in Earth's Solar System in various orders by his lonesome, stalemated Helspont (who is in Majestic's strength class), and has crushed graphite into diamonds in order to pay for a meal. He has also moved continents by sheer output of force from his body.
Superhuman Reflexes: Majestic possesses nano-second reaction time, as shown in his fight with Spartan Guards. He has also proved capable of viewing particles moving six times faster than the speed of light. He even appears to teleport (even by the eyes of superhumans) due to how fast he can react in combat.
Enhanced Intellect: Majestros is of a genius level intellect, able to fashion and utilize incredible works of high advanced technological craftsmanship in a matter of seconds. Having once developed a device that could decouple a daemonite metamorph from the halo building at a molecular level in seconds.
Superhuman Speed: He once traveled the Milky Way Galaxy in minutes and the universe in less than four months, which puts his speed at several hundred times faster than the speed of light. He also can perceive events in nanosecond time.
Self-Sustenance: Majestros can survive unaided in virtually every environment and does not need to eat, sleep or breathe for months to years on end
Superhuman Stamina: Majestic is almost unable to tire.
Enhanced Senses: Majestros is able to recognize the smell of a parallel universe simply by standing within one, picking up on the subtle differences between dimensions and universes.
Superhuman Hearing: he ability to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. Majestic can pick a single voice in an entire city, hear every sound on Earth as it happens, and even hear screams in space, where there is no air for sound waves to travel through (meaning Majestic has a mental telepathy associated with sound).
X-Ray Vision: The ability to see through any object.
Microscopic Vision: Can perceive things happening even on the subatomic level.
Telescopic Vision: Can view things happening miles away as it happens.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision: The ability to perceive the entire electromagnetic spectrum, proven when he was capable of viewing gamma energy contained in a nuclear bomb.
Superhuman Sense of Smell
Flight: Can hover or fly in any direction via manipulation of gravitons (massless subatomic particles that carry the force of gravity)
Super Breath/Freeze Breath: The ability to of enhanced olfactory exhalation, relative to freezing solid objects with his breath or knocking them over with gale force. Majestic was capable of freezing a ship while space with his super breath (meaning his breath had to have been hundreds of times colder than the coldness of space). Even managing to suck up an evil alternate self of his back into his being when he became a cosmic level entity.
Energy Projection: Like all Kheran High Lords. Majestic can channel, harness and manipulate vast quantities of raw energy for various effects, mainly projecting it as concussive, heat, or other such forces from his hands and eyes, or using it rewrite complex mechanical programming at will.
Energy Vision: Majestros can emit bolts of concussive, incinerative or disintegrating force from his optics. Potent enough to pummel asteroids into dust, change the chemical make up of Jupiter through super-heating and outright disintegrate any target he focuses on.
Particle Manipulation: Shown only once in his introduction, Majestic harnessed energy around himself in order to alternate the sub-molecular structure of his clothing. Changing civilian threads to Kherubim High House combat gear in preparation for the upcoming battle.
Energy Strike: More creatively, Majestros can enhance his punching and jabbing strength by withholding his dynamic force in his hand, then releasing it on contact with a target.
Subatomic Programming: Majestros once displayed that he knows how to manipulate photons and transmit information and data with his eye beams and used this ability to rewrite Eradicator's genetic code (subatomic programming), giving him cross-dimensional awareness.
Immortality: Like all Kherubim Mr. Majestic is functionally unageing and long lived. Though he can still die by violence, sickness or other such fatal affliction; he will continue to remain in the prime of his youth.
Accelerated Healing: Given time Majestic can heal from grievous wounds provided they are not too extreme, such as healing nerve damage to his neck and spine.
Psionics: At some point, Majestic grew into his Kheran Warlord heritage. Coming into possession of some various psychic abilities, similar to the Gen 12 of Team 7, only far more powerful.
Telepathy: Mr. Majestic is able to probe and see the memories of other life forms, even being able to see and resist possession by alt. reality Daemonites through his ESP.
Telekinesis: He's capable of some mind over matter as well. Using it to levitate stolen money bags as well as animate/bind burglars with some cable remotely.
Genius Level Intellect: Majestros possesses such intelligence that it would be classified as superhuman.
Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced)
Swordsmanship: Majestros is a skilled swordsman, he can easily kill numerous Daemonites in short time and Coda trained Kherubim assassins with little effort.
Molecular Disentangler: Used to detach a shapeshifter's mind from the building it was controlling.
Energy Dampeners: Pills that take away his powers in case he needs to work stealthily in places where his power signature would give him away.
Planet Movers: Gloves that let him move planets without them being destroyed by their own weight.
NanoFlage Suit: Standard Kheran stealth suit that simulates near perfect invisibility
Creation Engine Blades
Battle Breakdown: All righty folks, we have ourselves a potential epic and intense matchup on our hands. We have one of the Marvel Universe's most dangerous and powerful villains going up against not only a Superman pastiche but also a being that is highly regarded as the most powerful hero of the Wildstorm Universe. IMO, this is going to come down more so to strategy than brute force.
But, as always, who do you guys think wins? Thanos or Mister Majestic? I hope you guys enjoy this matchup and I'll see you guys next time. PEACE!!!
