Cookbook's Anarchist: Putting my money down on Yujiro Hanma and/or Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.


Meh, Yujiro is going to be beat up by his son, so he can't be the strongest (remember that's the entire point of the series).

Kenshiro is worthless unless he can hit pressure points. If the pressure points on your body are rearranged, he can't do anything. He would certainly have problems with mutants and aliens. Also his abilities make people explode which would be useless against anyone who can regenerate (Hulk, Wolverine, Lobo, Deadpool, Sabertooth, etc)

I suppose a begrudging argument could be made for the Scarlet Witch.

Yeah. Nearly wiping out an entire race with just one thought is high up.

/I hate Marvel for screwing with her
//I'll be happy when they stop screwing with her.

She's making her comeback. The X-Men hate her, but the Avengers have her back. Vision, however, is super-pissed at her.

And after considering all the entries, I have to put in another vote for Bugs Bunny. When you really lump all the fictional characters together, there's no question that Bugs would win in the end. He's unbeatable. The laws of physics bend to make his victories possible. He'd have Goku in a barber chair with foam all over his face and daisies growing from his bald head. He'd have the Hulk skipping to market like a little girl. He'd have Galactus so confused he'd eat himself. Nobody beats Bugs Bunny... Not even Spider-Man.

Elaine Belloc, the god of the DC universe. The one in charge of heaven, whose right hand The Specter is. She took over for grandpa YAHWEH after he got tired of running things, created a new universe from scratch, then fused her universe, one Lucifer made, and the original YAHWEH made into one. She now sleeps in the center of the earth to avoid the temptation to abuse her unlimited power.

Alternatively, Dr.thirteen, a skeptic so powerful he once defeated the head writers of DC (Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, and Mark Waid) by disbelieving in them hard enough. Apparently, because he doesn't believe in magic of any kind, it doesn't affect him in any capacity. Of course you have to ignore half his appearances for that to work (he was killed by magic in Seven Soldiers, and used it in Flashpoint)

PonceAlyosha: Heron: PonceAlyosha: Heron: scarmig: ronin7: scarmig: Heron: scarmig: Gaw, the lack of understanding in this thread is unbelievable. Seriously. Azathoth *dreams* the entire universe into existence. The moment his unconscious, mad dream changes or ends, it *all* changes or ends. Everything. Galacticus. God. Batman. Everything. An insane dream.

Morans.

True, but could Azathoth use that in a fight? The whole point is that Azathoth isn't aware of what it is or of the fact that it is dreaming. To maintain its entertainment, Azathoth's avatar in the dream would keep its true self asleep during any fight it happened to find itself in. Azathoth could certainly unmake everything by waking up, but that isn't really an ability it can wield consciously.


But the parameters are "strongest fictional character". On the scale of immensity, dreaming the entire universe into existence pales all other measures of ability. Everything within that dream serves to continue or end the dream, with no knowledge of what circumstances could result either way. It allows all possible universes to exist, yet none escape its scope.

Azathoth wins, on sheer scale of immensity and totality.

Then also in the running is the Jack Kirby-like god who drew multiple universes into existence seen in The Fantastic Four, and his mysterious 'collaborator' 'nough said indeed.

All a figment of Azathoth's fevered insane dreams.

And Azathoth, merely another figment of Haruhi's imagination, subconsciously willed into being to stave off the boredom of infinity.

You guys are arguing the singularity. At a certain height of power, the distinctions between omnipotent beings cease being be.

Pretty much. It's sort of interesting if you think about it; if Azathoth awakes, Haruhi ceases to be, if Haruhi get's bored, Azathoth ceases to be. It's a regular Double Mobius Reacharound.

Buttfarked by the rigors of paradox space..

This is Bellcross, he punches things. He was once attacked simultaneously at every point in time that has ever been or will ever be - he shrugged it off. Then he punched a black hole in the face.

If you destroy the entirety of the universe, it'll probably just piss him off, at which point there will be punching. "Oh, but I'm immortal," your character says? Great, prepare for an eternity of being wailed on by space Godzilla.

He's not that big, he's not that powerful, but very very tenacious.

If we're going purely sci-fi, not just comics...

How about the Shadows from Babylon 5? Planet-killing weapons, ability to phase in and out of hyperspace at will, crushed the Minbari like ants (a century before the Minbari took onl Earth and would have won had they not pulled back), took on the complete Earth Alliance and only fell due to use of magic.

The thing about mechs like TTGL is they have human pilots inside. What's stopping Goku from just sneaking on board your galaxy sized mech, and then proceeding to punch the weak human pilots?

Anyway, the answer is Magneto. You couldn't name any fictional character that could defeat him 1v1. On paper, he has the most stupidly ridiculous power ever. And then you go an add the fact that he is smart as *****. He just falls into that category where he's not entirely a bad guy and not really a good guy, so he doesn't do things to the extreme of his powers that he is capable of a lot of the time.

It's definitely not Batman, he's alright if he sees an enemy coming but throw him in a room full of ninjas or something and he's toast. Sure he'll handle them easy for a while, he'll beat the hell out of all of them except the last one, that last one always gets him. The last one will whip his ass, he'll survive by shear luck. It doesn't even have to be ninjas, it happens with regular thugs, if it weren't for his gay lover Robin saving his ass, he'd have been dead long ago.

For pure brute strength it's gotta be Hulk In Secret Wars #4 he holds a one hundred and fifty billion ton mountain aloft after Molecule Man drops it on him and a bunch of other heroes. They have to keep insulting him, but basically his strength is infinite as long as you can keep making him just a little... bit... angrier...

I'd still rather team-up with Flaming Carrot.


The Hulk with R. Lee Ermey strapped to his back. Every time the Hulk needs a boost, R. Lee Ermey sends out an insult that would peel paint.

I can name a few, in no particular order:

Batman. He's already got at least two plans to defeat Magneto in a 1v1 match.

Bugs Bunny. Just trust me on this one.

Asuna Kagurazaka, if her anti-magic can nullify Magneto's magnetism (and especially if she draws her harisen instead of that giant sword)

Sheogorath. Wabbajack. That is all.

Yukari Yakumo. Gap hax. That is all.

Flandre Scarlet. Kyuu*. That is all.

Arael. Mind rape. That is all.

Cthulhu. Do you really need to ask why?

The Killer Rabbit of Caer-Bannog. A fearsome beast who has no metal for Magneto to manipulate.

The Black Beast Of AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHH, if by some miracle Magneto stops the Rabbit.

Hyatt, if she were to "accidentally" cough blood on Magneto.

Altair Ibn La Ahad. Probably has a set of equipment with no metal in it for just such an emergency, and also has the Apple Of Eden regardless.

And if everyone else fails, Batman has a contingency plan for that, and a back-up in case that contingency plan somehow fails. And a Plan B that will work specifically because the back-up failed. Yes, this includes him going first before everyone else.

But like I said -- posthumous vengeance. Batman wouldn't let a minor setback like being dead stop him from doing what he does. Bruce Wayne has probably got some of those disc-like things Altair used to leave messages, a diary and/or an instruction manual for whomever will be the new Batman in a few hundred years' time, just in case Ra's' juice fails and he can't become a lich or ghost.

Alternatively, he could just hire Mokou to carry on his work. She's got most of what it takes to do his job - strong sense of honor, able to hold her own in a fight, and is loathe to kill or permanently injure humans or to allow any harm to fall upon innocent bystanders - and will be around long enough that immortal villains won't be a problem.

He already has plans to rescue those hostages, capture those goons and defeat you without anybody getting killed.

Your nuke plan wouldn't work either. If House could come up with a plan to protect most of the Las Vegas area from a bunch of nukes and partly succeed, Batman could (and probably already has) come up with a plan or two to protect all of Gotham City from nukes and completely succeed.
