TOP 10 TOUGHEST MARVEL SUPERHEROES RIGHT NOW

MIDTOWN BLOGGERINOS! Raph here, with a sense of nostalgia. I happened to think about a list a few days ago, a list I didn’t like. In issue 70 of Wizard Magazine, way back in 1997, they had a list of the 10 toughest superheroes. At the time, I could understand some of their choices, but I was baffled by others. Normally, I try to be above the typical fanboy debates, because they can last forever without a clear cut winner. There’s plenty of reasons why Spider-Man loses to Iron Man, or Thor beats Wolverine… but I did happen to buy this issue of Wizard from our back issue bin, and thought, let’s have some fun! I’m going to follow the same basic rules Wizard did:

  1. We’re limiting these to active superheroes: the dead and the villainous need not apply (Sorry Professor X, Sentry, Molecule Man and Ares…) Anyone deceased as of Jan. 30th,2013  is disqualified.
  2. We’re also limiting this to a certain degree of power: let’s leave Galactus and co. out of this one.
  3. This is a knock-down, drag-out fight to the death. No one is holding back.

For the sake of sanity I’m limiting this list to Marvel, doing Marvel vs. DC just makes my head explode.
