Ares

Real Name: Ares

First Appearance: Wonder Woman Vol. 1 #1 (June, 1942)

Origin and backstory: He is the son of Zeus and his wife Hera. Despite being Zeus's son, Ares never fit in with the other gods of Olympus and created his own realm, the Areopagus. Aphrodite, the patron of the Amazons, swore that her women would save the world with love from the hatred and warfare of Ares.  Ares did his best to destroy the Amazons, once using Hercules against them. In modern times he attacked them again, but Hippolyta's daughter Diana was brought into the world just in time to fight Ares. This attack took the form of an American military aircraft, assigned to Steve Trevor but driven by one of Ares' human puppets, crashing into Paradise Island. Ares's plot at this time was to fire nuclear missiles between the United States and Russia, simultaneously, provoking World War III, but Diana managed to make him see, trapped in her Lasso of Truth, how this chaos would lead to his own disappearance, with Ares having no one to worship him.  Although Ares abandoned those plans that time, he later managed to possess an unimportant human criminal, Ari Buchanan. Possessing Buchanan's body, he changed his name to Ares Buchanan, and began climbing the business ladder, by providing hi-tech weapons for gang wars. As Buchanan, he had a relationship with his lawyer Donna Milton (who was Circe in disguise, although not even she knew it then), conceiving a daughter named Lyta. Lyta was shown to possess a great amount of magic, which she was still learning to wield. However, Ares didn't care much about Donna, shooting her while she was pregnant. Circe survived, and as Donna, she used the last of her forces to shoot a gun, which produced a sort of mini-black hole that absorbed Ares.  In recent years, as opposed to ancient times, the roles of various gods have altered somewhat, according to modern practices and beliefs. Because of this, the actual faith-based power that Ares's father Zeus received has proved to be very much diminished. On the other hand, other gods such as Athena, Aphrodite, and Ares began to gain more power due, respectively, to the appearance of the computer age, to love never diminishing, and to conflict remaining consistent. Thus the three godly siblings eventually teamed up and took over Olympus, as the godly home's new masters.  Realizing that conflict was the source of his greatest strength, Ares changed his title to the God of Conflict. To celebrate this change he altered his appearance to a more approachable visage. His time, under this title, proved to be short-lived, as the god Hades was also overthrown, and Ares was all too eager to take up the mantle of God of the Dead. Accordingly Ares took over the kingdom of Hades, leaving his sister Athena, to rule over Olympus.

Here are his powers, abilities, and skills:

  • Olympian: Ares belongs to a race of ancient and inconceivably powerful beings known as the Old Gods. Because of this heritage Ares possesses almost unlimited power.  
  • Clairvoyance: Ares is capable of witnessing and understanding events that he wasn't present for, as if he was there. He knew about the relationship between his twin sons and Veronica Cale.  Ares also knew who Grail was even though they hadn't been introduced to each other.  
  • Cosmic Awareness: Ares, like all Gods, is aware of the multiverse and the realms that lie beyond. This knowledge gives him an understanding of the universe and all life that transcends the capabilities of normal mortals.  
  • Electrokinesis: Ares can summon lightning from the skies to strike at a specific opponent. This lightning is strong enough to damage himself, as he was harmed when it was redirected back at him.
  • Energy Construct Creation: Ares is capable of constructing weapons out of pure energy.  
  • Flight: Ares is able to fly or levitate completely unaided by any form of technology. He can travel at speeds faster then a missile.  
  • Immortality: As an Old God worshipped by the ancient Greeks and Romans, Ares has lived for at least millennia.  
  • Precognition: Ares claims to have the ability to see into the future. When he met Grail she threatened him by saying her father Darkseid would soon arrive to free and would kill him in the process, in response to this Ares calmly stated that he didn't see that in the future.
  • Invulnerability: Ares is incredibly resistant to all forms of damage. He has taken hits from the likes of Wonder Woman without suffering any injury at all.
  • Vast Superhuman Strength: Ares is a god with almost infinite strength. He has manhandled incredibly powerful beings such as Wonder Woman. He has also caught and threw an active missile with little problem. 
  • Telepathy and Illusion casting: Ares can mentally communicate with his worshippers, transmitting his image at interdimensional range, and possibly can do the same to any other intelligent being.  He can also show what happens in other places by creating a illusion inside his cape.
  • Darkness Manipulation: Ares can summon darkness and can choose targets to become visibles into this condition.
  • Decelerated Aging: Olympians do not age the way a normal human does.
  • Dimensional Travel: Ares can travel between Olympus and Earth and he can summon enchanted weapons from the Areopagus.    
  • Teleportation: He can teleport himself anywhere he wants.
  • Magic: Olympians have the power to manipulate vast amounts of magic energy to nearly any effect they desires.
  • Metamorphosis: Olympians can alter their physical form into any shape that they can choose.
  • Mind Control: Ares can directly control the minds of his living followers; they will degenerate and show cadaverous features, then die when the effects pass away.
  • Necromancy:  When Ares was also recognized as the Death God of the Greek Pantheon he had control over the dead.  
  • Power Distribution: Olympians can bestow a portion of their power unto others.
  • Pyrokinesis: Ares can summon a flame which burn souls.
  • Size Alteration: When the war is abundant, Ares can grow to giant size.
  • Molecular Reconstruction: He can turn any hard material into a weapon or armor. Ares can control and bend solid objects and substances to his will.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Olympians can operate for prolonged periods of time without tiring.
  • Intimidation
  • Weaponry: Ares knows and can control the most varied types of weapons.
  • Occultism
  • Martial Arts

Weapon

  • Double-axe

 

Thor

Real Name: Thor Odinson

First Appearance: Journey into Mystery Vol. 1 #83 (August, 1962)

Origin: Thor is the blood-son of Odin, All-Father of the Asgardians, and Firehair, an ancient human mutant and avatar of the Phoenix Force.  In order to ensure that Thor would dedicate himself to protecting the Earth, Odin lied to his son that his birth-mother was Jord, who was also known as Gaea, the earth-goddess who was one of the Elder Gods.  Odin claimed that he sought to father a son whose power would derive from both Asgard and Midgard (as the Earth realm is called by Asgardians), and hence he sought to mate with Jord. Odin created a cave in Norway where Jord gave birth to Thor.  Months after the infant Thor was weaned, Odin brought him to Asgard to be raised. Odin's wife, the goddess Frigga, acted as Thor's mother from that time onward, and for many years Thor believed her to be his birth-mother. Not until many centuries later did Thor learn the purported truth that Jord was his birth mother, though the Phoenix revealed that Odin had lied about Thor's parentage and that it was his birth mother through Firehair.  As the Asgardian God of Thunder, Thor commands the thunder, the lightning the wind and all the elements of the storm with his hammer Mjolnir, which was forged from the legendary, indestructible Asgardian metal; Uru. Mjolnir gives Thor the power of flight and helps him channel, focus or amplify his own godly elemental powers. Though the hammer is quite heavy by mortal standards, It can only be lifted by those deemed worthy to do so, regardless of the would-be wielder’s physical strength. After centuries of defending Asgard from its enemies, Thor became too proud and grew headstrong. It was because of this that he was banished to Midgard (Earth) by his father to teach him some needed humility. Made mortal and given the form of the handicapped human doctor Donald Blake, Thor learned what it was like to be small and frail and how to be humble and truly noble despite being mortal. When in his mortal guise of Dr. Blake he is able to transform into his true godly form by striking his walking stick (actually Mjolnir in disguise) upon any solid surface causing the transformation that changes him into Thor and his walking stick into his hammer Mjolnir. (In the past, this has now been taken away). 

Here are his powers, abilities, skills, and weapons:

  • Asgardian/Mutant Hybrid Physiology: While Thor was for a long time purported to be biologically half-Asgardian on his father's side and half-Elder God on his mother's side;  he is in truth half-Asgardian and half mutant, with his birth mother also being an avatar of the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix Force.  As such Thor possesses a number of superhuman attributes common among the Asgardian and other gods. However, due to his unique birth, some are considerably more developed than those of the vast majority of his race, including his strength, endurance and resistance to injury.
  • Life-Force: Also known as the God-Force. The godly energies that fuel all of Thor's godlike powers. Thor's immortal life-force is more powerful than the mystical properties of Mjolnir. Unlike many other deities, Thor's unique Life-force allows him to have full access to all of his powers regardless of what realm he enters. The only beings so far that has been shown to affect Thor's God-force are Odin, Dormammu, and Odin's raven in the form of Marnot. Thor's God-force is also the key to him using the God-blast.
  • Godlike Strength: In addition to being the God of Thunder, Thor is also the Asgardian God of Strength, as such he is physically the strongest of the Asgardian gods and his strength is unlimited. His feats include destroying an arch weighing over a million tons, crumbling Uru into dust, lifting the Midgard Serpent, who was large enough to coil around the Earth from head to tail multiple times over and crush it in its grip. Pushing the Worldengine, which reversed the Yggdrasil Tree. Thor nearly killed Angrir with a powerful blow, who had defeated the base level Red Hulk (He grows much more powerful from absorbing energy). His clash against Gorr shattered entire worlds. He effortlessly threw a piece of star core at the god-bomb. He also physically held together the fissures of a badly damaged moon, and mended it with his lightning.  He has effortlessly snapped adamantium alloy cables by simply flexing. He pushed over the leaning Tower of Pisa with his finger. His punch when met with same force has leveled a countryside and even closed dimensional rifts. He has towed the island hydrobase into New York Harbor. After being damaged in a battle, Thor literally holds up the George Washington Bridge long enough for Damage Control to fix it. Wonder Man conceded Thor as his superior. He has also resisted the gravity of a neutron star.  Thor has proven capable of several acts of vast physical strength, including stalemating the Hulk in battle for an hour. He was able to break Silver Surfer's force field with a single blow, knocked out Namor with a single blow (despite Namor being fully hydrated during a rain storm), rendered the Abomination unconscious with a single blow, and has effortlessly defeated the Bi-Beast, Red Hulk, and Gladiator.  During the contest of arm wrestling strength, both Thor and Hercules exerted all their godly strength to evenly match one another and generate enough power to knock the entire plant out of orbit.  Thor nearly rendered the Juggernaut unconscious after negating his mystical defenses.  Even when Thor was holding back, he still overpowered his counterpart from the Ultimate Universe.  Thor's strength is so great that he was able to launch Harald Jaekelsson's body into orbit with a single uppercut and sent the Hulk-like Bodolf the Black right through the entire Earth with a single punch.  He could also crush entire moons in his fists, and even shatter entire planets with the force of his blows.  When he went insane, Thor struck Beta Ray Bill with such force that he destroyed the planet they were on.  He has even broken through the armor of a Celestial in one blow.  If pressed in battle, Thor is able of entering into a state known as Warrior's Madness, which will temporarily increase his strength tenfold. 
  • Invulnerability: Being a god whose heritage is both half-Asgardian and half-mutant affords Thor virtual invulnerability and immunity to any such human ailments as diseases, toxins, poisons, corrosives, fire, viruses, electrocution, asphyxiation, and he has a immunity to heat and subzero and lead and radiation poisoning. Thor has flown through the heart of stars. He withstood what he thought to be the weight of a score of planets. Thor was able to survive direct multiple blasts from the Asgardian Destroyer. Thor also once took a glancing hit by a Doomsday Bomb that was capable of ravaging an entire planet, and soon after that explosion he fell from space (leaving a crater miles wide) to a planet called Pangoria. He has withstood several blasts from Odin, and even survived blasts from Celestials including their leader, the One Above All. With his powers reduced in half, Thor was able to withstand a blow from the Skurge the Executioner's axe. Thor is truly extremely difficult to kill as his life force is stated to be augmented by his godlike heritage, and Mjolnir. Thor can even survive absolute zero temperatures, and even though he was trapped inside, he showed no discomfort after being rescued by Hulk and immediately resumed battle.
  • Superhuman Speed:  Even without the Mjolnir, Thor can move at extreme speeds and easily outrun many speedsters (if not all). Thor can fly to the sun in a matter of minutes. Thor was even able to strike down a moving Quicksilver and has claimed to have fought foes faster than him. He can throw Mjolnir at several times the speed of light and also swing Mjolnir at several times the speed of light while his strength was reduced in half. It has been established that the speed of Thor's hammer transcends both time & space. In addition, Thor can appear anywhere across the Universe or other dimensions in just seconds. Thor could visually detect objects that move at fantastic speeds (this happened when Thor was the target of artillery fire and when he saw the speedy Hermes.) Thor once stated that he was as fast as the lightning he commands. Thor can twirl his cape so fast that he creates a tornado.
  • Superhuman Stamina: : Thor's advanced musculature is considerably more efficient than that of a human and most other Asgardians. As a result, his muscles produce practically no fatigue toxins during physical activity compared to those of humans and most other members of his race. He possesses practically inexhaustible stamina. He can exert himself at peak capacity for countless months on end at the very least without tiring at all. Thor was able to fight nonstop, for more than 9 months straight, from day to night, without any sustenance or rest, against the entire Frost Giant's army, without tiring at all.  Thor was even able to fight the Sky father Zeus for entire months on end pushing him, from day to night without stopping for anything, and he still did not tire.  While in the state of Warrior's Madness, Thor's stamina also increased tenfold.
  • Superhuman Senses: Thor possesses incredible superhuman senses,  as he is able to effortlessly see objects as far out as the edge of the Solar System, allow him to track objects traveling faster than light, and hear cries from the other side of the planet.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: As stated previously, Thor is not invulnerable to all harm and it is possible to injure him. But due to Thor’s unique physiology he is able to heal from most injuries much faster than a human being could. Thor has displayed the ability to regenerate his liver when it was vitrified, and was able to heal his two broken wrists in a matter of hours. This healing factor is said to be much stronger than that of the typical Asgardian Gods. With the use of Mjolnir, Thor can also regenerate his clothes. Also, with Thor using his other powers, he can regenerate missing limbs or organs. However, without the Mjolnir, his other powers or the Odin Force, Thor cannot regenerate lost limbs.
  • Superhuman Agility: Thor's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Thor's reflexes are similarly greatly enhanced and are much more superior to the reflexes of the finest human athlete. He possesses "godlike" speed and reflexes as he has stated in the past. He has been able to react fast enough to catch bullets out of mid air, hit beings able to move at speeds faster than light such as the Silver Surfer etc. He has such reflexes that he is capable of reacting to faster than light attacks.
  • Longevity: It is a common misconception that Thor and the other Gods of Asgard are truly immortal. Unlike many other Asgardians, he cannot age by any conventional means. However, Thor and the other members of his race do age but at a rate so slow that to other beings they give the appearance of immortality. Thor has been stated to be thousands of years old which makes his life span incomparable to that of the human beings which he protects. When the Asgardians consume the Golden Apples that are cultivated by the goddess Idunn, they are able to maintain themselves in their physical prime. An exception occurred when Thor temporarily became the Rune King, effectively becoming immortal and improving his powers immensely.
  • Super Breath: Thor can use his breath to create hurricane force winds.
  • Flight: Thor has shown the ability to fly and levitate without his hammer.
  • Self-Sustenance:  He is capable of surviving in the vacuum of space unaided and does not need air, food, water, or sleep.
  • Earth Control: After his resurrection, Thor gained the ability to control the Earth.  He has demonstrated this ability by being able to create continental-spanning chasms and earthquakes that are off the Richter Scale in the Earth itself. He can control landslides and avalanches.
  • Transcend Dimensions: When he was trapped in the Tesseract (a pocket universe prison) from the Collector, Thor determined the boundaries of the Tesseract and escaped.
  • Vast Energy Manipulation: Thor has stated that he relies on the power of Mjolnir too often. Mjolnir does afford powers and abilities that he would not normally have, but Mjolnir is a tool, and Thor has natural energy manipulation abilities without Mjolnir, in most case, his natural powers surpasses than most Asgardians Gods. He can easily go toe to toe with Zeus’s own extremely powers. During Ragnarok, Thor had seen his family and friends fall to Loki's army and he reached down into himself for strength he never realized before and projected an energy blast so powerful that he knocked out Durok the Demolisher, who was so powerful that Thor, even with Mjolnir, was barely able to hold his own against. He can always projects omni-directional blast.  Using Mjolnir he can channel the storm’s energy into blasts so powerful that he can destroy secondary adamantium.  Thor can also channel his godly energies through Mjolnir, creating rays powerful enough to kill even immortals.  
  • Electrokinesis: Thor usually uses the Mjolnir to channel his storm skills but he is able to discharge the rays from his hands. Likewise, he summoned a ray of heaven without the Mjolnir. 
  • Weather Control: Thor as the god of thunder was born with the natural ability to control weather since birth. Thor normally relies on Mjölnir to control the weather with devastating degree and release blasts of lightning. Mjolnir allows him better more precise control over his powers and allows him to better regulate his power output, and can act as a shortcut to access his natural powers. This is compared to using his powers without Mjolnir which seemingly require more effort to summon and are more raw and unregulated in their nature. He is able to summon huge storms, rain and lightning from the sky and also creating weather to where there normally isn't any. He has also the ability to create unnatural weather like fire rain on a barren planet. Thor can also discharge lightning bolts from his hands that are lethal and raw in power, also engulfing his hands in lightning to amp his punches.  He also summoned a lightning bolt from the sky without Mjolnir to strike Hogun to revive him from near death.  He summoned a lightning bolt to strike Hercules (which brutally injured him) to break his grip on him.  He once mended together a badly damaged moon with his lightning.
  • Rain Manipulation: Thor can summon rain without the use of Mjolnir. Thor called down rain to bless that land where Kurse fell during Ragnarok.  
  • Memory Alteration: Thor calls this the 'Gift of Forgetfulness'. He took away Jane Foster's memories of her being kidnapped by Loki and a reporter's experience in Asgard.
  • All-Tongue: When Thor speaks with the All-Tongue anyone who hears him will hear him speak their native language in their hearts.  
  • Allspeak: Thanks to the Allspeak Thor can communicate in all of the languages of the Nine Realms, Earth's dialects, and various alien languages.  
  • Indomitable Will: Thor has shown to have a powerful force of will, so much so that he has defied the will of his father Odin, who is his king and is bound to serve him, on several occasions if he feels the need to do so. He does not back down from any foe, does not give into a fight and is willing to lay down his own life in defense of others. On occasion, he has demonstrated the will power necessary to overcome mental domination.
  • Master Combatant: Thor is one of the most trained and experienced warriors in all of the Marvel Universe.  Since birth, he has been groomed to be Asgard's finest warrior. He has shown proficiency in hand-to-hand combat, aerial combat, swordsmanship, mace wielding, hammer throwing, and wrestling. Being a God of War, he has mastered various fighting styles (historical and modern) from both Asgard and Earth. He is also considered to be as one of the most powerful fighters in history, which occasionally defeat foes who are even more powerful than himself.  Even when Thor had been stripped of his powers and made into a mortal, he was able to defeat a bunch of fodder and also save Captain America with his own shield and wield Mjolnir simultaneously. Thor was also able to fistfight with Hercules, but was only shown to be slightly under in terms of skill. Thor often prefers to use brawling-type techniques when fighting beings such as Juggernaut, Gladiator and Abomination.  He is also easily one of the greatest and most versatile weapon experts in the Marvel Universe, he is generally seen wielding his hammer but has also shown great prowess using weapons such as an axe, sword, bow and arrow, shields and clubs. 
  • Master Tactician: For millennia, he has lead Asgard into battle against overwhelming forces with great leadership and employing effective strategies and tactics. Thor serves as the as the first choice to defend Asgard from it's enemies. He has earned the trust of his fellow Asgardians to follow him into battle. When Odin died after his battle with Surtur, all of Asgard was behind the idea to follow Thor as the new King of Asgard.  He has often assisted beings such as Tony Stark as well as Captain America in devising plans of attack while they themselves are known as some of the greatest tacticians. Thor derives his great knowledge of war from Earth as well as the other nine worlds of Asgard.
  • Telepathic Immunity: Thor has the ability to resist the mental influence of powerful beings. He resisted a mind thrust attack of the Rigellians, the magical music of Ares, a mental attack from Glory, Morgana le Fay's attempt to dominate his mind, resisted the power of the Eye of Horus, and the mind blast of the Super-Beast.
  • Some Knowledge of Magic: Thor was able to cast an illusion, after years watching Loki prowess in manipulating magic.
  • Talented Public Speaker: Thor has addressed Asgardian masses, rallied troops and Avengers teammates into battle. He has also married some of his Avengers teammates and given compassionate eulogies.
  • Highly Influential Connections: During his life, Thor has served Asgard as it's Prince, Lord, and King and with these positions he has had access to the wealth of Asgard to pay an Oklahoma land owner for the land he put Asgard on, all the weapons and magical artifacts in Asgard and field command of Asgard's forces in Odin's stead. As a founding member of the Avengers, he has a good reputation among Earth's heroes who would answer his call if needed and he would answer their call in return. He also has good relations with gods from other pantheons. 
  • Diplomatic Immunity: After Thor's rebirth, he used Mjolnir to recreate Asgard on Earth in Oklahoma. At this time, Iron Man was head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and confronted Thor about his bringing Asgard in U.S. territory. After Thor beat down Iron Man, Stark suggested that Asgard be treated as a foreign embassy and with it citizens full diplomatic privileges, to which Thor agreed.
  • Gifted Intellect: Thor possessed and retains the medical knowledge of Donald Blake, even as Thor. In early years, Blake also possessed scientific knowledge enabling him to build an android with an IQ of 375 and durable enough to withstand the blows from Thor's hammer. Thor's time among Tony Stark and the Avengers also gave him great knowledge of complex Earthly systems of electronics and the ability to modify the systems for his own purposes. However, his scientific skills have not been mentioned later in his career. He is however shown to be an avid reader of books written by other deities when he needs to learn new information.
  • Thorforce/Odin Force:  The Odin Force enables him to tap into the practically infinite resources of cosmic and mystical energies of the dimension Asgard exists within, enhancing all of his abilities in turn. The sum total of Odin's power as the king of Asgard plus the power of his brothers Vili and Ve, as well as his own, which made Thor effectively omnipotent. The Odin Force significantly increased Thor's powers as well as giving him greater abilities than his father Odin and the previous Asgardian sky fathers possessed.  While only barely tapping into the limitless power of his vast magical power, Thor damaged Captain America's shield by striking it,  teleported Asgard into the skies above New York City, contained a nuclear missile's explosion, recreated the moon after it was destroyed in a battle with him and a powerful entity, will Mangog into nothingness, decapitate a Desak-occupied Destroyer by focusing a portion of his power into one Mjolnir hurl, and easily conquer all of Earth, and defeat all of its inhabitants such as the powerful Sorcerer Supreme Dr. Strange etc. According to the Odin Force (which took the shape of Odin), Thor recreating celestial bodies and his other accomplishments during his time on Earth were nothing but minimal compared to the Odin Power's limitless power, and to illustrate its point, it casually creates a pocket Universe.  After Mjolnir was damaged in his battle with Bor, Thor sought Stephen Strange to help repair the hammer. Dr. Strange informed Thor that Odin invested his life energies into the hammer's creation and the only way to repair it was to use the same life energy. Thor was willing to sacrifice what little amount of the Odin Force he still possessed but Dr. Strange also informed him that it would require taking 'all' of the Odin Force he possessed and the end result would be Thor at the same power level he was at before he inherited the Odin Force. He also informed Thor that he and the hammer would be bound together so that if Mjolnir was ever destroyed or damaged then Thor would die. Thor accepted the situation and Dr. Strange performed an ancient ritual to siphon the Odin Force from Thor into Mjolnir, making it whole again.  After becoming the All-Father of Asgard following the War of the Realms, Thor inherited the power of the All-Father once more.
    • Thorsleep:  When Thor uses the Thorforce too greatly or too fast he needs to replenish his energies by entering the Thorsleep. There is no definite time frame as to when he has to enter the Thorsleep or how long he has to be in it. Having learned from his father's past experiences of being vulnerable while in the Odinsleep, Thor used a casket made by Odin's metalsmith Falki. The casket contains enchantments that create a state between life and death to reduce the time required for the Thorsleep. Once it has been closed from within, it cannot be broken by any force known to man or gods and can only be opened from the inside.  While asleep in the casket in the state between life and death, Thor's mortal persona Donald Blake temporarily separates from him until he awakens again.

Equipment:

  • Megingjord: A magical belt worn by the Thunder God that would double his natural strength and stamina.  The belt is fueled by the Odin Force and can also increase the might of Mjolnir. When Odin fed a large amount of Odin Force into it, the belt increased Thor's strength so much that he was able to knockout a powered-up Thanos clone.

Weapons: 

  • The Asgardian warhammer Mjolnir: Mjolnir is a symbolic weapon of Thor, a hammer forged from Uru metal, whose chief properties are durability, the ability to maintain enchantment, and absorb energies. Mjolnir resembles more of a short handle mallet than a traditional warhammer. Mjolnir itself is already extremely durable, and combined with the various enchantments placed upon it by Odin, is even harder. It has survived heat as extreme as the heart of the Sun, and blasts powerful enough to destroy planets.
  • Worthiness Enchantment: This enchantment surrounding Mjolnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy. Thus far, this includes Thor, the Red Norvell, Beta Ray Bill, and Captain America (Steve Rogers).  To anyone else, Mjolnir cannot be lifted from the ground nor wrested from Thor’s grip.  Those who are deemed worthy are able to wield Thor's powers. Captain America said "I've never wielded such limitless power before!"  It's almost intoxicating!"    However, after Nick Fury told him an undisclosed secret, he lost his ability of wielding Mjolnir.  After Mjolnir is reforged, Thor became worthy again after recognizing that the struggle to become worthy allowed to become worthy again.
  • Transformation: When Thor was living on Earth under a mortal guise, he could use Mjolnir to transform from his Donald Blake persona into Thor and vice versa. Thor lost this ability when this enchantment was transferred to Beta Ray Bill's hammer, Stormbreaker. Later, Odin permanently separated the two personas.
  • Mystical Link: Mjolnir obeys Thor’s commands as though it were alive, and if Thor’s will is strong enough, the hammer can pass through nearly any barrier to reach him should he so chooses; Mjolnir will even return to Thor while he is in his mortal persona as Jake Olson.  Mjolnir can also transform Thor into his civilian guises. When Thor is a civilian, the hammer most often becomes an old wooden cane. While employing a mortal guise, Thor would transform back into his mortal form if he was separated from Mjolnir for more than 60 seconds.  
  • Weather control: Wielding Mjolnir grants Thor the ability to control the base elements of a storm, i.e. rain, wind, thunder, ice, snow, and more.
  • Flight: Thor is capable of hurling Mjolnir with great force and, by holding onto the leather thong, is capable of flying through the air at tremendous speeds. While in an Earth-like atmosphere, Thor generally flies at Mach 32, and change course in mid-flight.  He can hover in mid-air with the winds like Storm.  
  • God-Blast: Thor is capable of channeling different amounts of his godly energies in combination with the mystical properties of Mjolnir. These energies can be channeled through his hammer for a single massive energy beam known as the God-Blast which is able to kill even immortals.  Thor channeled his godly energies into Mjolnir to destroy the Brain Dome of the mighty Celestial Exitar, the hammer shattered from the amount of power Thor channeled. The God-Blast is so immensely powerful and destructive that it has proven capable of causing such a great degree of damage to a starving Galactus that he was forced to flee for his life.  The God-Blast was able to stop the Juggernaut (Cain Marko) while he was in motion and to push him back, letting fall him in a hole.  The God-Blast was also shown to be capable of knocking down the skymother Majeston Zelia, who absorbed the Odin-Force.  Thor can send the God-Blast to the core of Ego the Living Planet and Alter Ego and render both comatose.
  • Anti-Force: Thor is capable of producing an indescribably powerful blast known as the Anti-Force which is capable of annihilating entire planets.  Thor was able to defeat the Mangog by shooting him the Anti-Force, with Mjolnir, inside his mouth.  
  • Thermo-Blast: Thor has the ability to produce a universe shaking Thermo-Blast capable of decimating even entire planets and beings as powerful as Ego the Living Planet.
  • Energy Absorption and Manipulation: Thor is able to use Mjolnir to absorb energy blasts directed towards him as means of attack. Once the energy is absorbed, Thor can redirect it back amplified towards the source. Thor used Mjolnir to absorb the Silver Surfer's Cosmic blasts, Sky-Walker's Cosmic Tempest, radioactive energy, and magnetism such as Magneto's personal magnetic field.  Mjolnir has even managed to redirect the energy of the Null Bomb, which was created to destroy all life in the Black Galaxy, the blast of which was shown as powerful enough to reignite a dying sun.  It has also absorbed mystical energies, such as Pluto's mystic flame.  The hammer was even able to absorb a portion of the mystical energies granted from every god pantheon on Earth.
  • Matter Manipulation: By spinning Mjolnir in a precise manner at cyclotronic speeds, Thor can manipulate matter from a molecular level to a vast scale, which allows him to create other configurations and even allows him to transmute the elements themselves. This ability was evident when he transmuted the Absorbing Man's wood and iron body to the gas helium.  
  • Electromagnetic Spectrum Manipulation: Thor was able to absorb and manipulate the electromagnetic energies of the Celestial Mothership.  
  • Cosmic Energy: Mjolnir allows Thor to produce and control Cosmic Energy to an unknown limit for a variety of purposes.  
  • Energy Sensing: Mjolnir can detect practically all types of energy.  It reacts particularly strongly to evil psychic energy, and supernatural energy.  Mjolnir can also track down the energy pattern of someone in hiding, detect any Asgardians aura by their electrons discharge, and can sense and track the energy radiating from mystical objects.
  • Nether World Power: Thor can use Mjolnir to tap into the power of the Nether Worlds (dark dimensions).
  • Teleportation: By grasping Mjolnir by the leather thong and rapidly swirling it, Thor can channel energies for the purpose of opening gateways through means of a vortex and in this vortex time has no meaning, which means he and others can pass through it to their destinations instantaneously.   He can open gateways which allow him to travel across locations no matter how great the distance within moments or even across entire dimensions, as he does when he travels from Asgard to Earth and vice-versa.  Thor has used Mjolnir to rip the fabric of the Universe to send Surtur and Yimir to the Death Dimension and send an entire population to Limbo, Thor can also use Mjolnir to travel through portals anywhere within the same dimension.
  • Transmigration of Souls: Thor's hammer has the ability to manipulate souls.
  • Life Force Absorption: Thor used this ability on the super villain the Presence, who was forced to surrender to prevent himself from being reduced to a lifeless husk.
  • Illusion Detection: Mjolnir can distinguish images, holograms, and different illusions from reality: Thor once commanded the hammer to strike the demon lord Mephisto, who was hiding among false images of himself.

Battle Breakdown: Man, we got ourselves an insane and intense battle folks.  IMO, this is going to be one of those fights that will shake the heavens.  The fight could take place on Earth, Asgard, or the Moon and shit will still hit the fan.

As always guys, who do you guys think takes this fight, Ares or Thor?  I hope you guys enjoy this fight and I'll see you guys next time.  PEACE!!!

Brick                                                                                VS.                                           Luke Cage

LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!

 

Brick

Real Name: Daniel Brickwell

First Appearance: Green Arrow Vol. 3 #40 (September, 2004)

Backstory: Brick was originally a low level henchman/enforcer for various mobsters in Star City and also ran his own street gang. However, he had a brilliant criminal mind and higher aspirations to go with it. In the wake of the demonic attack against Star City, he began to expand his gang's criminal activities, particularly drug sales, into areas left vacant by other criminal organizations.  He even succeeded in uniting the various street gangs of Star City under his leadership. These low level criminals were previously denied access to many lucrative areas by more "up-market" mafioso, but once united under the leadership of Brick they became an overnight crime syndicate with greater manpower and resources than the now greatly weakened traditional organized crime families.  As his criminal empire grew, he came to the attention of Star City's Police Department, Green Arrow, and the council of mafia/gang leaders who represented the various criminal families of Star City. Brick was invited to a meeting of this council and told that his new criminal enterprise would be allowed to continue in Star City, but only if the Mafia were given a cut; his alternative was death. Brick had the entire restaurant leveled with a rocket launcher while he was still inside it. He was the only thing left standing.  Next, he killed Star City's Mayor and District Attorney, using a suicide bomber. When he was arrested, he went calmly and revealed that he had kidnapped the new mayor's infant daughter (having bribed her security detail) and would kill her if he was not released immediately. Green Arrow was brought in to search for the child, but was unable to find her; Brick engineered his capture and release from custody to show the public that he was "above the law."  Though unable to take Brick into custody, Green Arrow challenged Brick to a duel over who owns Star City. He shot a glue arrow into Brick's mouth, blocking his throat and suffocating him. Rather than allowing him to die, Green Arrow saved Brick, warning him that should he step too far out of line, next time he will die. Since this incident, his interference with law enforcement and the political figures of Star City has either ceased or vastly subsided.

Here are his powers, abilities, and skills:

  • Unique Physiology
  • Superhuman Durability: Brick's primary power is his invulnerability. He was able to easily withstand a surface-to-air missile strike and numerous attacks from Green Arrow. 
  • Superhuman Strength
  • Leadership: Brick is a highly effective criminal leader. He was able to gain control of Star City's entire underworld, and had great influence over the legal authorities as well.
  • Hand-to-Hand Combat (Basic): He has some fight capabilities as show in his fight with Batman.

 

Luke Cage

Real Name: Luke Cage (legally changed from Carl Lucas)

First Appearance: Hero for Hire Vol. 1 #1 (March, 1972)

Origin and backstory: Carl Lucas, the man that would one day be known as "Luke Cage" was born and raised on the streets of New York in the district of Harlem. He was the son of Esther and James Lucas, a retired N.Y.P.D. detective. Lucas spent his youth causing trouble on the streets with his friends Willis Stryker and Reva Connors. He eventually joined a gang called The Rivals along with his best friend Stryker. He fought the rival gang the Diablos and committed various petty thefts, often on behalf of deformed crime-lord Sonny Caputo a.k.a. Hammer.   Lucas was in and out of juvenile homes throughout his teens. He dreamed of becoming a major New York racketeer until he finally realized how his actions were hurting his family. Culminating in his voicing reservations about robbing a young prince from across the world, the two eventually parting on amicable terms after a brief scuffle brought on by Lucas's feeling insulted over said acquaintance using a phony cognomen. The hoodlum even gifting his would'be pigeon decent parting advice about family for the future out of favor of taking interest in said pretend identity.  Later seeking to better himself as an adult, eventually finding legitimate employment.  Meanwhile, Stryker rose through the ranks of crime, but the two men remained friends.  Eventually Stryker's activities came to the attention of the Maggia (a.k.a. the Syndicate). He was badly attacked in a mob hit, but Lucas was there to save him. After that Reva ended their relationship and turned to Lucas for comfort. This created a rift between the two former friends and Stryker believed Lucas was the cause of the break-up. Stryker planted heroin stolen from Cottonmouth's organization in Lucas' place and tipped off the cops.  Lucas was arrested and sentenced to prison; he attempted to get revenge by contacting the Maggia, only for the group's attempt on Stryker's life to go awry - Stryker survived, while Reva was killed in the process.  After that Lucas lost contact with his family due to the resentment of his brother James, Jr., who intercepted his brother's letters to their father and eventually led each to believe the other was dead.  While in prison, Lucas was consumed with hatred and rage by his friends betrayal and the supposed loss of his father. He spent his time getting into brawls along with various escape attempts. Because of this he was transferred to Seagate Prison, one of the toughest facilities off the coast of the State of Georgia. On his first day he became target of one racist and sadistic prison guard; Albert "Billy Bob" Rackham. His brutality toward Lucas was the reason he was later demoted, which made him hate the inmate even more. During his tenure Carl would watch news about a certain royal (whom said jailbird had unknowingly met prior to his imprisonment) revealing the traditionalistically hidden society he hailed from to the wider world at large.  Hearing tell of this, Luke came to admire the only black king whom was lord of his own marvelous metropolis; no matter how much cruller Rackham became to him in response.  Dr. Noah Burstein came to the prison to carry out secret medical research and recruited Lucas as a volunteer. He was secretly working on experimental cell regeneration based on a variant of the Super-Soldier process. He had previously used to empower Warhawk.  He immersed Lucas in the "Electro-Biochemical System", a device that contained an electrical field conducted by an organic chemical compound. When he left equipment unattended, Rackham tampered with the controls, hoping to kill Lucas. However, the treatment was accelerated past its intended purpose causing mutagenic change throughout Lucas' body, fortifying his cells giving him superhuman strength and durability. Lucas used his new-found powers to escape the prison and make his way back to Harlem. A chance encounter with criminals inspired him to use his new powers for profit.

Here are his powers, abilities, and skills:

  • Burstein Process: Luke Cage possesses various superhuman physical enhancements after undergoing a Super-Soldier experiment known as the Burstein Process, which was designed to increase his body's cellular regeneration rate.
  • Superhuman Strength: After undergoing the original experiment, Cage's strength was increased to superhuman levels. Initially, it was only sufficient enough to lift approximately 5 tons. However, with extensive physical training and years of experience as a superhero, his strength was increased to approximately 25 tons and he is able to punch through barriers as thick as 4-inch steel plate.  While his experience in fighting crime allows for him to gauge the amount of force he exerts, Cage has been known to cut loose in cases of extreme stress often hinting that he's much stronger than his limits suggest, for example, Cage was seen lifting a large bulldozer over his head and throwing it without any strain.  His strength has been currently increased to 50 tons or much more.  Cage was able to easily bend a metal baseball bat with his bare hands.  He was able to knockout the Rhino, a villain known to be a rival with the likes of the Hulk, with one punch.  Cage's herculean strength allows him to seamlessly move extremely heavy objects with ease or trade blows with insanely strong extraterrestrials resulting in mild seismic activity, as seen when Luke Cage almost effortlessly carried a semi truck over seven city blocks because he couldn't get the engine to start.  He was strong enough to send a woman flying with just the impact of his thunderclap.  His strength also extends to his legs enabling him to leap in a manner similar to the Hulk; however, his leaping is not equal to the Hulk. Nevertheless, he can carry himself at speeds that outdo even the fittest of athletes.  His most impressive feat of strength is grabbing onto the bottom of the airplane and dragging it hard enough to caused the pilot to shut down the plane. 
  • Superhuman Stamina: Cage's muscles generate less fatigue toxins than the muscles of ordinary humans, granting him superhuman stamina. This helps Cage pull off astonishing feats of athleticism despite his excess mass.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Luke Cage's body is as hard as titanium steel.  His muscles and bones tissue are super-dense, granting him much greater resistances to physical injury.  He can withstand conventional handgun fire of 4 feet and cannot be cut by the sharpest of blades, although in the event of required surgery his skin can be lacerated with an over-powered medical laser.  He can withstand up to one-ton impacts or blasts of 150 pounds of TNT without serious injury, and he is impervious to temperature extremes and electrical shocks. His current level of durability enables him to withstand gunfire at point-blank range, and to withstand being lit on fire without suffering any serious or permanent injuries. He has withstood impacts from superhumans a good deal stronger than himself, destructive energy attacks including electricity, and falls from great heights such as ninety story high skyscrapers.
  • Accelerated Healing Factor: Luke's invulnerability is usually enough to protect him from damages. However, if injured, Luke's recovery time from injury or trauma is customarily one-third that of an ordinary human.  This ability allows for him to rarely require medical attention after even his most tedious of fights.  
  • Expert Combatant: Cage is a self-taught hand-to-hand combatant with years of street fighting experience. He also says he has had extensive training with Iron Fist. Through him, he has learned to utilize leverage with his strength in order to increase his combat effectiveness against more powerful opponents.  
  • Skillet Athlete: He is also a gifted athlete, even without his superhuman abilities.
  • Extended Education: Cage is self-educated in the law and fluent in several languages.
  • Strong Speaker: He has proven to be very good at speaking positively, truthfully, and with charisma in front of large audiences. His innate nobility has earned him the respect and friendship from a good number of different persons.

Battle Breakdown: We have a good one here today for ya folks.  We have two highly strong and durable men going at it.  To me, this is going to come down to the wire.

As always, who do you guys think will win?  Brick or Luke Cage?  I hope you guys enjoy this matchup.  I'll see you all next time.  PEACE!!!
