Doc Samson Respect Thread

This thread is dedicated to Marvel’s most underrated gamma-powered, green-haired, super-strong, therapist. Doc Samson is usually seen as kind of a wuss with muscles, despite the fact that he usually holds his own against monsters like the Hulk. This shows that that is far from the truth.

All the work here was done by Average John and Jonathanos, who worked together to comprise this very impressive capability thread for the good doctor.

Vision outlines Samson’s abilities, then offers him admission into the Avengers:

Samson and the Punisher:
Gamma powered beings don't have superspeed or enhanced reflexes? Here is a Samson who has had about half of his power drained (to the point where he is no longer bulletproof) reacting to a machinegun toting Punisher. At first, the Doc thinks it's an imposter, but it turns out to be the real deal. Also a nice little jump by a weakened Leonard.

Doc Samson vs Patchwork
Doc fights Patchwork, a being who drains gamma radiation from gamma beings. At this point Patchwork has already drained She-Hulk dry and added her strength to his own. Samson holds his own until Patchwork lures him in. The villain eventually drains Samson to half power.

Later on, in the same series, Samson's durability is shown. Patchwork decides to kill himself with a lethal dose of gamma rays. Samson wades through the radiation unharmed to shut down the machine and save him.

Sentinels are capturing gamma beings, and the Abomination has already been subdued. This sentinel is sent to get Samson and is specifically designed for his strength and durability. Colossus gets slapped around, but Rogue absorbs Samson's strength to fight it.

*Notice the Sentinel explains that Rogue's strength is now multiplied by a factor of 1.7 compared to her normal strength. So Doc is almost twice as strong as Rogue.

Doc fits the description of the mythical Samson- in other words, the longer his hair hets, the stronger he gets:

Doc is no idiot either (he wouldn’t be a doctor if he was!). Here, he demonstrates his expertise on gamma radiation:

Team-up with Spider-Man; here, Samson lifts up a building and shakes a couple of criminals out:

http://img385.imageshack.us/my.php?image=spidey35xe.jpg
Later on, they are using a ray to drain his strength. Spider-man severes the power and Samson takes care of the rest, breaking free and easily subduing Rhino. He also takes a massive amount of electricity to no effect.

Samson vs. Rhino. IH #218
For the record, what Rhino says in the second panel is in reference to Rhino ramming Samson earlier in the issue. Samson wasn't taken out by it; he would have gone after Rhino immediately but had to help injured civilians.

Samson breaks free of Gamma Base restraints. Probably safe to assume these were designed with the Hulk or Abomination in mind. (Unfortunately for Samson, the Leader had placed mental blocks in his head to prevent him from attacking the Leader.) IH #224
http://img474.imageshack.us/my.php?...hulk224a5vc.jpg

Samson briefly fights the Hulk again and then teams with him to take on the Leader's humanoids. (There's an interlude between the first two scans so there may have been fighting off-panel.) IH #225
*Note that on the 2nd scan, Samson shows incredible willpower in resisting the Leader’s mind control.

http://img474.imageshack.us/my.php?...hulk225e8wo.jpg

Once the Leader is taken care of, the Hulk turns his attention back on Samson. Don't know how long the fight went on before the reinforcements arrived. (For the record: Hulk jumped Samson at the end of the previous issue.) IH #226

Samson takes on his favorite sparring partner again. An important note is that Samson's probably not at 100%. He'd taken quite a beating from Woodgod and several Changelings and was in and out of consciousness for hours before he went in search of Rick, Betty, and Hulk. Still, he holds his own. IH #253

Samson has a brief tussle with Wonder Man, Namor, Hercules, and Iron Man.
Two things to note:
• his hand is has not completely healed (he injured it when he one-shot the Hulk earlier)
• he throws four Class100 people off of him at the same time when they all dogpile him (although in their defense, as Samson said, they were worn down from their previous skirmish with the Hulk):

Samson vs. Banner's Hulkbusters. Banner's weapons were not up to the task for which they were assigned, partly because Banner was having difficulty thinking following the separation from the Hulk's body. Still, Samson wasn't taking chances...

What class level of strength is Doc Samson? (I know in one of your first links it says 70% of hulk's strength. Am i to assume that means .7 * 75 tons? 75 tons being hulk strength while he is calm.)
