Vs. #2: Hulk vs. Superman (Durability Test)
Posted 04 December 2012 - 09:25 PM
Which weapon slashes and pierces through the hardest objects: Adamantium or a Lightsaber?
Whose body is more durable: Hulk or Superman's?
Can a lightsaber block Darkseid's Omega Beams?
These are all questions that were brought up in a Rumbles Page fight. My hope is that you guys will post some really good references and images that back up your thoughts and not just spew crap that you think. My goal is that these will be used as definitive back up in arguments on the CBUB. these topics will go on indefinitely as a poll will be created to keep track of people's thoughts.
Topic question: Which character has the most durable body: World War Hulk or Modern Era Superman?

Are we talking about durability as in: How much does it take before he takes actual injury. Or are we talking about durability as in: How much does it take to put him down(unconscious/dead).
Are we talking durability towards a specific kind of damage(like Wonder Woman is extremely durable against temperatures and blunt force, but very low durability against piercing). Or durability in general?
If we are talking about how much it takes to put them down, then we need to factor in their respective regenerative Healing Factors as well. And if we are talking about durability in general, then there are also other factors that play in. Like the fact that Hulk adapts(i.e. he is in a very hot area, and he adapts to be more resistant to heat, underwater, he adapts to be able to breathe underwater, or not need to breathe, etc.).
I like your question series here though, it raises some interesting questions, starting some potentially interesting debates.

1. His durability, even in his weaker forms, has been enough to take Human Torch's Nova Blast(on more than one occasion) with no real injury, he has also taken a direct blast from Galactus, as well as physical impacts powerful enough to shatter the planet, passing through a black hole, and standing in liquid magma.
2. His durability, like his strength, regeneration, adaption to hostile environments, etc. increases with his rage, and when absorbing radiation.
3. The Sun is, if anything, a hostile environment. Which means that aside from his, already considerable, durability, Hulk's adaptation power would also be in play, effectively increasing his chances of surviving the fly-through.
4. The Sun also, aside from the huge temperatures and pressure, emits a high amount of radiation, which Hulk would absorb, increasing both his durability, and the speed of his adaptation and regeneration.
5. Flying the the Sun, is a gradual thing. It takes a certain amount of time for the journey from point A(somewhere, not inside the sun) to point B(the core of the sun) and on to point C(the other side of the sun). Which means that Hulk's regenerative Healing Factor(which also increases with his rage, and the amount of radiation he absorbs) would also have to be taken into account.
6. Purely an observation: I don't know about you, but if I was sent flying towards, and through, an area that caused me to feel pain, and I was completely incapable of preventing it, or lessen the pain in any way, I would get pretty pissed off. If nothing else, then due to the sheer frustration of the helplessness. Based on knowledge of the Hulk, I would say that that would happen to him as well. In which case, the anger/rage, would further increase his Durability, Regeneration, and Adaptation.

I agree--Hulk can't fly through the sun. But, he still has my vote. Unless I'm convinced otherwise...
Hmm. Superman can fly through the sun. I don't think Hulk can...

Flight: to move through the air under a person or object's own power. Ie, birds, planes, missles...

trying to thunderclap shouldnt work because there is no air to push with the clap. Essentially he would just be waving his arms. Although in comics Im sure that would probably work.
Yes, he can. Jump into Outer Space then thunderclap his way to the sun.
Also as far as durability goes, that goes to Superman hands down. He could take the most punishment without a scratch. Factoring in the healing factor is what provides Hulk with his feats. He heals from everything but thats not durability. Healing means that he was hurt by it. Superman can withstand more punishment without being hurt by it from what I have seen of both characters.
