Top Ten Physically Strongest Marvel Characters

3. Thor Odinson –AKA The God of Thunder

thor strength feats

As you’d expect for a man whose secondary title is “The God of Strength” there’s very little Thor’s arms can’t accomplish. Over the decades he’s been a Marvel mainstay, Thor has punched someone so hard a nearby moon exploded, caved in the Silver Surfer’s face with an almighty, thunder-infused headbutt, and even once managed to cold cock the Phoenix Force. (AvX #4)

But Thor doesn’t just have a pair of skull-crushingly powerful biceps to fall back on in a fight. He also wields Mjolnir, an immeasurably heavy mallet forged from the heart of a dying star that he can control on a nanoscopic level. He also wears a belt called Megingjord, which literally doubles his strength. Because apparently a person with limitless strength needs something like that.

Greatest feat of strength:

We’re a little torn between the time Thor wrangled a giant snake 80 times bigger than the Earth from a floating space ship (Thor #327), or the time he pushed over the Leaning Tower of Pisa with his little finger just to show Loki that he could. (Journey Into Mystery #92)
