You don't want to tangle with these Marvel variants. For this list, we'll be looking at versions of Marvel heroes across comics, television, and more who are even more powerful than their original counterparts. Our countdown includes Bloodstorm, Strange Supreme, Old King Phoenix Thor, and more!

#10: Bloodstorm

0 0

With her weather-manipulating abilities, Ororo Munroe is one of the most powerful mutants in the Prime Marvel Universe, aka Earth-616. However, in a few alternate realities, the superheroine is further powered up by vampirism granted to her by the legendary Dracula. In addition to her nearly godlike mutant powers, Bloodstorm can also shapeshift into mist and into a flock of bats at will, allowing her to disorient her foes. Additionally, Bloodstorm manages to break Dracula’s powerful mind control, allowing her to have complete control of her abilities and retain her vampire powers.

#9: Weapon Omega (Earth-295)

The Logan of the Prime Marvel Universe is known for his extraordinary healing abilities, extended lifespan, great tracking abilities and, of course, the Adamantium lining his skeleton. The Logan of Earth-295 possesses all of these incredible powers and then some. After an encounter with the Celestials and their advanced technology, he becomes Weapon Omega, the heir of Apocalypse. As Weapon Omega, he not only retains his advanced healing abilities, but also gains the ability to teleport. He also has enhanced strength, reflexes and durability beyond his already amazing mutation. Of course, these new abilities also strip the mutant of his humanity and turn him into a monster.

#8: Mar-Vell (Earth-10011)

Shazam VS Captain Marvel

Thanks to his Kree physiology, the Mar-Vell of the Prime Marvel Universe has incredible attributes, including superhuman speed, durability and reflexes. Despite his abilities, this version of Mar-Vell eventually succumbs to cancer, meeting his end with dignity while surrounded by friends. However, the Earth-10011 version of this hero chooses a different path. When presented with the chance to destroy Death itself, this Mar-Vell accepts new abilities from the Many-Angled Ones. These new powers give him the ability to destroy Death and transmutate his friends into alternate versions of themselves, making him even more intimidating than before.

#7: Peter Parker as Captain Universe

0 0

As Spider-Man, Peter Parker is one of the most powerful entities in the Marvel Universe. With his wall-crawling and web-slinging abilities, heightened spidey sense, impressive regeneration and superhuman strength, he’s able to take down most baddies he encounters. During the Acts of Vengeance storyline, Peter is granted the abilities of the Enigma Force, transforming him into Captain Universe. Peter’s incredible senses and strength are increased several fold, and he also gains telekinesis and Uni-Vision, which allows him to use X-ray and telescopic vision. In the Prime Marvel Universe, Peter doesn’t permanently retain the powers of the Enigma Force, but in a couple alternate universes, he ultimately remains Captain Universe.

#6: Blink (Earth-957)

Clarice Ferguson aka Blink is a powerful mutant with the ability to create teleportation warp portals and displacement weapons, allowing her to transport people and objects at will. With the ability to instantly transport others as far away as the Moon, Blink is an incredible superhero. In the alternate universe Earth-957, Blink gains the powers of the In-Betweener, allowing her to cosmically alter reality. When she tries to use her new abilities to create a perfect universe, Blink is overwhelmed by her own powers. Thankfully, the In-Betweener returns and takes her on as his apprentice.

He’s then able to resurrect Christine, but destroys reality itself in the process.

#4: Cosmic Ghost Rider

As the Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider in any form can manipulate Hellfire, project a mystical chain, and cause others to feel the pain they’ve inflicted elsewhere. In the alternate reality of Earth-TRN666, Frank Castle aka the Punisher dies when Thanos comes to Earth. In Hell, he signs a deal with Mephisto to become the new Ghost Rider. Years later, he makes another deal, this time with Galactus, and is granted the Power Cosmic.

Old King Thor is, of course, an older version of Thor. In addition to his godly attributes such as extraordinary strength, weather control, durability and energy manipulation, Old King Thor has the power of the All-Father. With the power of the All-Father, Thor can use mystical and cosmic resources to enhance his powers. During a battle with King Doom, Phoenix Wolverine sacrifices himself and transfers the Phoenix Force to Thor, creating Old King Phoenix Thor. The Phoenix Force enhances Thor’s abilities even further, but it also allows him to manipulate life, warp reality and resurrect. It’s no wonder Old King Phoenix Thor is able to defeat King Doom, even if it does take nearly a century to do so.

#1: Maker (Earth-1610)

Dr. Reed Richards is among the most intelligent Marvel characters, and, of course, he also has incredible stretching abilities that allow him to manipulate his body into a myriad of shapes. In the alternate universe of Earth-1610, Reed still has these abilities, but he also develops a dark side. After his marriage proposal is turned down by Sue Storm and he learns about the impending end of the world, Reed fakes his own death. He uses his abilities to stretch his mind, altering his personality and even further expanding his intelligence. He adopts the moniker the Maker and achieves functional immortality. Additionally, the Maker is present across every universe, making him nearly impossible to destroy completely. Talk about an ultimate baddie.
