HOTU Thanos

Am I not Thanos?! Did I not butcher the woman who gave me birth, who forced me into this hell called life? Is not the wake of my passing crimson with the blood of my enemies and allies alike?! Death is with me every second of the day!

All previous abilities to an unfathomably greater extent

Attack Potency: Solar System level (Consistently shown as superior to the Silver Surfer. Was able to put up a fight against Tyrant through being greatly boosted by an external power source) | Multiverse level+ (Had full control over a Cosmic Cube) | At least Multiverse level+, likely High Multiverse level+ (Had full control over the Infinity Gauntlet. Simultaneously defeated multiple cosmic and abstract entities, including Death, Lord Chaos, Master Order, the Stranger, two Celestials, one of which was The One Above All, and Galactus. Later defeated Eternity with the same ease) | High Hyperverse level (The Heart was created by The One Above All, and allowed Thanos to even absorb The Living Tribunal)

Speed: Massively FTL+ combat speed and reactions (Scaling from Thor) | Massively FTL+ combat speed and reactions, Omnipresent state of existence as a "cosmic wraith" (Can become the size of the universe itself) | Immeasurable (Those armed with the Infinity Gauntlet are swifter than abstract entities) | Omnipresent within his universe

Lifting Strength: At least Class Y (Listed as at least the same level as Thor within the official handbooks) | Immeasurable | Immeasurable | Immeasurable

Striking Strength: Solar System Class | Multiversal+ | At least Multiversal+, likely High Multiversal+ | High Hyperversal

Durability: Solar System level (Is superior to Heralds of Galactus) | Multiverse level+ | At least Multiverse level+, likely High Multiverse level+ | High Hyperverse level (Was unharmed by The Living Tribunal's blasts)

Stamina: Godlike (Not even blows from the Silver Surfer and Thor could knock him out) | Infinite | Infinite | Infinite

Range: Standard melee range normally. Tens of meters to interplanetary with certain weapons and attacks | Multiversal+ | Universal+. Multiversal+, likely High Multiversal+ via energy ripples | Universal+

Standard Equipment: His Throne/Chair which can teleport, cross dimensions, cloak him from the senses of cosmic beings, generate force shields, and fly at FTL speeds. His armor and clothing contain a vast amount of devices that increase his stats as well as give him many different types of weaponry and allow him to draw power from various sources across the universe and other dimensions. Sometimes has the Reality Gem but rarely uses it | A Cosmic Cube | The Infinity Gauntlet | None

Intelligence: Supergenius (A skilled fighter and master tactician, capable of creating extremely advanced technology in all fields of science, and possesses vast mystical knowledge) | Nigh-Omniscient (By virtue of becoming one with his entire universe) | Nigh-Omniscient (Same, but to a greater extent. The Infinity Stones were stated to grant the user Omniscience. Thanos claimed to know "all there is to know" because of his possession of the Infinity Gems)

Weaknesses: His own movement speed is limited and he cannot truly fly, only levitate. He sometimes subconsciously allows himself to lose | None Notable | Needs to be in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet/gems in order to maintain his power. Subconsciously let himself be defeated for not finding himself worthy of his power, however this did not stop him from accomplishing multiple victories prior to his downfall | The One Above All

Key: Base | With the Cosmic Cube | With the Infinity Gauntlet | With the Heart of the Universe


Please do not attempt to re-scale characters by using the Thanos Wins storyline by Donny Cates. Several of the feats performed by Old King Thanos were performed off-panel via unknown means, and several of the on-panel ones would be extreme outliers if used to scale the present-day Thanos.

Before making any changes to this page, please read and follow the Power-scaling Rules for Marvel and DC Comics.
