Marvel characters.jpg
Marvel is a cornucopia of fantasy, a wild idea, a swashbuckling attitude, an escape from the humdrum and prosaic. It’s a serendipitous feast for the mind, the eye, and the imagination, a literate celebration of unbridled creativity, coupled with a touch of rebellion and an insolent desire to spit in the eye of the dragon.
~ Stan Lee

Summary

Marvel Comics is a comic book publishing company that has created many iconic superheroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, and Captain America, alongside many others.

Beginning in 1939 as Timely Comics, its main production was focused on pulp magazines, with the Human Torch, Namor the Submariner and Captain America being some of the earliest superheroes featured.

Eventually being named Marvel Comics, the company had a resurgence in early 1960s under the helm of Stan Lee, with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko as the other main creators of currently iconic characters.

Marvel Comics have been adapted into various films, television series, books, video games and other forms of media, most notable being the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is one of the highest grossing film franchises in the world.

Power of the Verse

Marvel Universe is an expansive verse with alot of characters, as such many degrees of power levels exist.

In terms of Attack Potency, many characters are mainly centered around 9-A to 8-B range ("Street Tiers"; Harboring characters like Daredevil, Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man); High 6-A ("Lower Mid Tiers"; With characters such as Iron Man and the classic versions of Rogue and Captain Marvel); 5-A ("Upper Mid Tiers"; Containing The Thing and Doctor Doom); and 4-B ("Herald Tiers"; Having Hulk, Thor, Silver Surfer, and Thanos).

They yet further increase in tiers with 2-C ("Skyfather Tiers" with Odin and Mephisto); 2-A/Low 1-C ("Abstract Tier" for various universal abstract entities such as Lord Chaos and Master Order, and high-order mystical entities, such as the classic incarnations of Dormammu, Agamotto, and Shuma-Gorath); Low 1-A ("Pseudo-Top Tier" containing characters like The Living Tribunal, The Protege, and the Chaos King); and finally topping at 1-A (The true Oblivion, the current multiversal incarnation of Eternity, The First Firmament, and The One Above All are a part of this tier).

There are also a vast number of abilities within this verse, making Marvel a formidable verse all-in-all.

Solar System level scaling

Many Solar System level (4-B tier) characters, such as the Hulk, Thor, Silver Surfer, and The Sentry have a tendency to hold back immensely in combat within certain conditions. Therefore to ensure accuracy of our statistics, a character has to qualify under these conditions:

  • They are consistently able to match a bloodlusted version of a character who is known to hold back (Note: Mind-controlled versions may not be able to overcome certain mental barriers restricting powers and clones may not be able to perfectly recreate the original character's power level.)
  • They are fighting in scenarios where the character known to hold back has no reason to do so, such as whenever they intend to kill the opponent or do not have to worry about collateral damage.
    • Feats set on Earth or similarly populated areas would be heavily questioned due to the factor of collateral damage which the characters may be aware of.
  • They can harm characters deemed fully Solar System level consistently. Note that certain characters may be listed as unreliable to scale from due to sheer inconsistency as well, for example Gladiator.
  • If a character has feats only against characters known to hold back, their scaling would be judged on a case-by-case basis. For example, Mar-Vell has a star creation feat at his peak, but he fought an explicitly holding back Thor on Earth, so given the circumstances this is likely not Solar System level. Stardust has a star absorption feat, and has fought the Silver Surfer in space, but considering that the characters have a common power source and fought in scenarios where Surfer wouldn't hold back, this is likely Solar System level.
