<<<I for one say... who cares? We barely get to see any of these characters and it'd just be a stalemate so there really was not that much of a point to making this thread.>>>>
I think you're jumping too fast here. You severely over looked it. I understand if you are not familiar with all the "Gods" above, but I sort of am. I could make several arguments here that would favor one god over the other, but I want to hear what someone else can come up with first
That's a great idea, I will try my best to find valid and informative links on all characters.
Let me just give my input, I feel obligated to do so just to give someone something to debate with me on.......
Yahweh/Presence - from DC Is said to be completely beyond the concepts of Death/Oblivion. Therefore cannot die. Debators have said that Yahweh actually created the Presense as he did the Word, etc.
He is father to Lucifer and Micheal etc, each character is said to have the power to create and destroy entire multiverses, although the validity to that has been challenged as well. Yahweh has the ability to reshape reality as he sees fit. Any decision he makes has been described by some latin word meaning "From the Beginning of Time" meaning that any new command he gives will AUTOMATICALLY ERASE the old structure and order, making it as if it NEVER EXISTED...this info I read from a Lucifer issue.
This version of God, however, does seem to have his limits. He has conflict and frustration with his defiant son Lucifer who always challenges everything about him. This version of God is imperfect. If he would re-create the entire order of a Universe/Multiverse, that would mean it was because he made a mistake with the old order, and therefore needed to rectify it.
I remember in his argument with a female character, he justified his reasoning for wanting to destroy the old universe and recreate a new one by saying if he DID re create it, it will be as if the current universe NEVER existed, therefore he would have not killed ANY ONE...because they would have re verted to non existance before actually "dying".
He seems to be a bully and a JADED individual in many of his convos.
The One Above All - from Marvel Not much is known about him except that he is above Living Tribunal and therfore above IG. So we would have to look at info on Living Tribunal to make some judgements. He may be equal to or above Classic Beyonder, and remember: Classic Beyonder's only flaw was that he didn't know what "DESIRE" was, but he had the power of many multiverses. Also some people claim that Thanos w HOTU is equal to or STRONGER than TOAA....if anyone knows about this, you can try and make a point based on this bit. GS claimed that we dont even truly know if TOAA is Marvel's God or Supreme Being, so this would suggest that Yahweh could be above TOAA.
God from Image - Image- I stated his/her info above.
Ahura Mazda - from DAWN by Linsner IS LITERALLY supposed to be GOD..God of the Christian, Islam, and Judaic religions combined. However, he is not the supreme being in Dawn's Universe. In fact he is a FRAWD and a BULLY and a HYPOCRIT, not to mention he's actually gay. He is Lucifer's lover, and banished him from Heaven when Lucifer would not follow his plans, only to forgive him with smooch later on in the series. Dawn was able to cut off Ahura Mazda's hand with this cosmic level sword.
Don't get confused here....Ahura Mazda IS very powerful, and probably more powerful than Dawn herself. He did create Heaven, Hell and the Angels. However, he is below Death in Cosmic Heirarchy. Cernunnos, Dawn's lover and Death incarnate himself, is above "GOD" in this mythos. He is indeed VERY powerful, probly more than Mistress Death from Marvel or Death of the Endless from Vertigo.
GOD from Saint of Killers issues...I don't know much about Saint of Killers, but from what I heard God in this version was KILLED by Saint of Killers, therefore this God is not truly immortal. He or Ahura Mazda might be the first "GODS" to lose this battle.
In my opinion it either comes down to Yahweh, TOAA, or God from Image.
Okay...ne more possiblities here? Don't be afraid to throw in any other "GOD" u know, and don't be afraid to challenge my statements.
