Atlantean - Namor, Attuma, etc.

-Thse are the 4 major types of Gods.


Apocalypse is not a god... neither is Namor..... other pantheons would include the Dark Gods.... in fact if you read Thor comics a few pantheons are mentioned, but don't feature much... i suppose you could call the Elders of the universe gods, New Gods of new Genisis and the folk from Apokalipse, including Darkseid

Superman.

Wonder Man's fast and can attain speeds over Mach 30, but compared to Superman's Mach 1000... You get the picture.

quote:
The Watcher - The inhabitants of New Genesis. Once, in NEW GODS #1 (1971), they call themselves "Celestials". Most prominent members include Izaya (Highfather), Lightray, Scott Free (Mr. Miracle), Orion (adopted into Highfather's family), Metron, and many others.
Chris Reilly - The New Gods are a race of god like beings who live on New Genesis.
David Gordon - The product of Ragnarok.
Thad Doria - Forager called them "Eternals" in his first appearance: "Yes! I dare call you Eternals by name! I am one of you!"
Mario Di Giacomo - The New Gods are a race of semi-divine beings, created by Jack Kirby during his second tenure at DC. As an attempt at a new mythology, they were critcally successful, but never really gained popular acclaim.
Ramhog - Personally, I think that the New Gods (all of them) are humanity's collective unconscience made manifest, thus the variety of cultural archetypes, etc.
Blink182 - Characters like Orion(Who is awesome!), Big Barda. The remnants of the gods from a millenium ago when Apokolips and New Genesis was one planet. These characters are the descendants of sorts.
CaptainKal - They are natives of the worlds New Genesis and Apokolips. They've evolved personal powers and technology so advanced as to be considered gods. They apparently achieved godhood around 28,000 B.C. Their powers and technology are partially based on their predecessors, the Old Gods. New Genesis is supposed to be the world of the good gods. Apokolips is supposed to be the world of evil.
Ben Herman - After the cataclysmic battle that destroyed the "Old Gods" and their world, two new planets were formed. They came to be called New Genesis and Apokolips. According to New Gods #7, New Genesis was formed with the atoms of an Old God named Baldurr, giving the planet his "nobility and strength." Apokolips, however, "was saturated with the cunning and evil which was once a sorceress" of the Old Gods. On both worlds, a race of new gods developed (hence the name New Gods), and they came to reflect the qualities of their worlds. The gods of New Genesis were brave, noble, and philosophical. The gods of Apokolips were cruel, evil, and violent.


To understand that, you need to know who the Old Gods are.

quote:
The Watcher - The gods who came before the cataclysm that divided one world into New Genesis and Apokolips. It was implied in several Jack Kirby issues that the old gods might have been the Norse gods of Asgard. In an issue of FOURTH WORLD, John Byrne made the connection explicit by using Thor in a story.
David Gordon - The Norse gods, for the most part: Thor, Loki, Odin, etc.
Thad Doria - While the Norse Gods concept is the predominant one, alternate concepts exist. In History of the DC Universe, Marv Wolfman suggests that the war between the Titans and the Olympians unleashed the energy that created New Genesis and Apokolips. In Cosmic Odyssey, Jim Starlin proposed that the "Old Gods" were a race of super scientists who dabbled in Things They Were Not Meant to Know and destroyed themselves in an attempt to probe the Anti-Life dimension. According to Mark Evanier's run on New Gods, animated corpses of the Old Gods shamble beneath New Genesis--they are the Dreggs. They mindlessly re-enact their days of glory in their dark caverns.
Simon DelMonte - And just to be complete, JLByrne made out the old gods to be the old gods of myth, complete with introducing his take on Thor that was supposedly closer to Norse myth than "the Fabio of the super-hero set" (to quote Ben Grimm on the recent FF cartoon).
Mario Di Giacomo - Good question. The New Gods were supposedly created many millenia ago, when a world of divine beings (the aforementioned Old Gods) was sundered in two by a great war. As Jack referrred to the name Balduur, and called the primordial planet Asgaard, it could be assumed he originally meant the Old Gods to be the Norse pantheon (possibly as a tweak at Marvel Comics, as one of the heroes Kirby hads created during his time there, Thor, was a member of that pantheon). Nowadays, however, they are just considered to be really old cosmic beings, most of whom are now deceased.
Ramhog - They were the gods that existed *after* the Ragnarok of Odin's Asgard. In other words there was a Norse cycle between the one we're familiar with and the New Gods.
CaptainKal - Predecessors to the New Gods. They lived on one of the first worlds to achieve sentience in the cosmos (called Asgard by some). A final, fatal conflict raged between factions of the Old Gods that was so lethal that it destroyed them and split their world in two, thus forming New Genesis and Apokolips (some call this conflagaration Ragnarok). Until the "Genesis" storyline, it was believed that all the Old Gods perished then. Humanoid life achieved godhood on 'Asgard' around 15 billion years B.C. 'Ragnarok' occurred around 5 billion years B.C.
Ben Herman - Kirby never explicitly states who they were, but many have assumed they were the gods of Norse mythology. The fact that one of the Old Gods was named Baldurr helps support this.

Okay. Thanks.

Bottomline (what you need to know for this profile), there's something called the "Enigma Force" that imbues a champion with the power of Captain Universe whenever humanity is in danger. Acts of Vengeance endangered it, and Spider-Man was chosen as the champion, so he got cosmic powers.


Question: Does Hulk's strength increase when he is angry because of adrenaline?

Has Hercules ever picked up, or at least tried to pick up Mjolnir or any of the other Mystic Hammers like Stormbreaker or Thunderstrike?

If he tried, did he succeed in picking it up?

If so, what issue of what comic was it in?

SS is an arrogant son of a b*tch. He claims he is far more powerful than he is, and also claims he can do alot of things that have never been proven.

I've heard a "Strange" rumor about the mystery character on the New Avengers. I heard from a "source", that the mystery character is Dr. Strange. I know it sounds retarded, but Dr. Strange is an excellent close quarter combatant. He did take on Black Panther and Mantis... and beat them! I don't think it's true, but I just wanna hear everyone's opinions. Dr. Strange on the New Avengers will certainly shake things up.
