The action is heating up, the first round is out of the way. So far, we have seen some ok matchups and some one sided slugfests. First, the Incredible Hulk completely humiliated Strong Guy, having to sacrafice only a single strap on his tank-top to do so;

After that was a brief intermission in which we ate various junk food and argued how we could woop any super heroes butt, given that we hadn't been injured in Xavier's academy during our prime years. Then we saw a pretty good bout between Colossus and Captain Britain, but once the Cap' started talking trash about Rasputin's kid sister, it was all over the the proper flag was risen;

Shortly after that match, Benjamin Grimm had met up with The Rhino, and decided to take an opportunity to spruce up the decor in his apartment at the Baxter Building;

This is when things really started to heat up, as an inter-stellar showing of destruction befell when a matchup of a demi-god vs god became clear as Gladiator battled Thor, of course Thor was at a disadvantage due to the fact that this is a hand-to-hand tournament, and had his own father Odin chain it down to a mysterious stone with magical steel links.

After the cosmic dust cleared, however we arrived upon an abandoned planet for the next fender bender, which some people are claiming as the closest match-up in the tournament yet. Blow upon blow was traded between Zues' son Hercules and the movie magic man himself, Wonder man.

After the big W finally went down for the count, the intergalactic referee couldn't even blow his whistle before Juggernaut pounded on his rival russian criminal, Abomination, proving to be perhaps the most suprising blowout in the first round.

Now it's down to the last two matches, come along a buy a ticket to get ringside as Canada's own Sasquatch faces Wendigo. Some commentary from Sasquatch when we met up with him before the match was parlaid between the big fella and yours truely, and trust me folks, he isn't too happy with the white-wonder of the north. "I'm so sick and tired of this crap" he says, "Just because we're both in Canada, big, and hairy people always mistake me for that rabid animal. Come on people! I've got brown fur and not nearly the sharp claws of that beast! It's time I settle this once and for all to prove to my people that I am Canada's true defender!" Strong words from an even stronger ehm, err, man. In any case, the ballad is as so;
a) Sasqautch vs b) Wendigo
And after that it's even more akward fun as the raging North American Native Warpath tries to clear the way when none other than the Blob steps in the middle of his road. Who will win folks? I guess the answer is up to fate itself;
a) Warpath vs b) The Blob

And that shall be it for round 1.5, see you next week folks!
~I decided to move the tournament to this forum to give it more exposure and collect more votes. So to clear things with everyone, I have established a couple of rules for the beings participating within the tournament itself.~
1. No weapons, this battle is to be strictly hand to hand, based in the middle of barren wastelands with noone within miles of a harms reach (i.e- No Mjolnir, and no villians using innocent bystanders as distractions)
2. Super-aiding materials are allowed, so long as they are not used offensively ( i.e- Hercules has his belt, and Captain Britain had his suit, something I had to clear up from last time)
3. The votes will be tallied every friday at midnight pacific standard time, from there the victors shall remain.
1. Please fillout your ballad using simple numerical-alphebetical order
1. A
2. A
3. B
4. A
5. A
6. B
7. A
8. B
This is to make the tally easier to count.
2. I know we all have favorites, but I ask that whom ever votes please vote with their mind and not their heart.
1. As soon as round 1 is over, I will be opening a new topic for each match and will replace the tally system with a poll system. Each topic will contain 1 match per topic, and I will open the next topic after the votes have been tallied from the previous match. The reason I am doing this is because I felt that, since I rushed myself, the quality of the after-match posters is much poorer than intended. By taking it one match at a time, I can spend more time creating quality posters.
2. This will be the stable for the entire tournament, it will have updated pictures for each round, as well as more thorough commentary and backround story.
3. I scrapped the female matches because I felt that I should rather start simple. Involving two genders in a single theoretical matchup brings up too many emotions and opinions, which might lead to unnecissary sexist remarks so on and so fourth.
I hope you enjoy.

Here is where you can learn more about the characters involved in this match, their motives and their powers.

The Incredible Hulk
Real Name: Dr. Bruce Banner
Known Super Powers:

The Hulk possesses superhuman strength of the Class 100 level, enabling him to lift (press) in excess of 100 tons. The Hulk only attains this strength level when he is enraged. In a totally, calm state his functional strength is significantly less, perhaps in the 70 ton range. In human form Bruce Banner possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in no regular exercise.

The Hulk possesses the capacity for nearly limitless physical strength. The gamma radiation that mutated the Hulk's body fortified his cellular structure and added, from some as yet unknown source, over 800 pounds of bone marrow and tissue to his body.
Previously, this mutation was not a stable one. The Hulk would periodically revert o the human form of Bruce Banner, losing the extra mass and energy to the same as yet unknown source from which he derived it. The process by which Banner transformed into the Hulk had a chemical catalyst, adrenalinc. As in normal humans, Banner's adrenal medulla secrets large amounts of adrenaline in times of fear, range, or stress, which hormonally stimulates the heartbeat rate, raises blood-sugar levels, and inhibits sensations of fatigue. Whereas this secretion simply heightens normal physical abilities in normal human beings, in Banner's case it triggered the complex chemical/ extra-physical process that transformed him into the Hulk. The total transformation took from 25 seconds to as long as 5 minutes, depending on the initial adrenaline surge which is determined by the original, external stimulus. Soon after the transformation, the amount of adrenaline in the Hulk would return to more normal, reduced levels. However, since Dr. Leonard Samson separated the Hulk and Banner into two discrete beings, Banner remains in human form and the Hulk remains in his superhuman mutated one.
In times of stress the Hulk's adrenaline level escalates, causing a corresponding escalation in strength. This is not accompanied by an additional gain in mass, but does appear to promote increased levels of energy efficiency. To date the Hulk has never apparently been provoked into demonstrating a maximum output of strength; hence, its upper limit remains a mystery.
In addition to great strength, the Hulk's body possesses a high degree of resistance to injury, pain, and disease. The Hulk's skin is capable of withstanding great heat without blistering (up to 3,000° Fahrenheit), great cold without freezing (down to -190° F), and great impacts (he can survive direct hits by field artillery cannon shells). It is possible to injure him: he could not, for example, survive a near-hit with a nuclear warhead. The Hulk's highly efficient physiology renders him immune to all terrestrial disease.
The Hulk can use his superhumanly strong leg muscles to leap great distances. The Hulk has been known to cover 3 miles in a single bound.
The Hulk has two powers apparently not related to his physical attributes, he can see astral forms, and he as a seemingly mystical homing ability that enables him to locate the area in New Mexico where he first became the Hulk. The nature of these abilities is not yet known.
Reason for Entering the Tourney: "Hulk SMASH!!! Haha, but seriously folks, I just wanna kick some butt and prove that I am still the Universes strongest man." Says doctor Banner. Seemingly just another powerhouse looking to prove himself in the eyes of millions. Is it for pride? Fame? T-shirt sales? Who knows. But when you look deeper into the situation, Dr. Banner was recently kicked out of the house by his wife, Betty. Claiming that he can't keep his giant green self from a giant yellow pitcher of beer, she got tired of his abusive ways and had the living tribunal place a one thousand mile restraining order on him. Moving from Las Vegas to the New Jersey projects, the one known as the Incredible Hulk now stops east-coast petty crimes as a hobby while working double shifts as a human sanitizer, picking up giant bulk containers of trash every morning. He hopes to take home the money and fame from this tournament to re-vitalize his financial well being and use the fame to perhaps gain goverment grants for his scientific explorations.
Quote: "Hulk Smash!!!.... Trash..."

Strong Guy
Real Name: Guido Carosella

Known Super Powers:
Superhuman Class 50; can range upwards to an unknown limit through absorption of kinetic energy.
Formidable hand-to-hand combatant, relies on streetfighting techniques Special skills and abilities: Talented musical comedy actor and stand-up comedian.

Aside from the above listed attributes, Strong Guy has the ability to absorb kinetic energy and to use it to enhance his physical strength up to an unknown level.

Special limitations: Strong Guy cannot store the kinetic energy he absorbs for very long and must physically expend it within 90 seconds. Otherwise, the energy will physically distort his body permanently. Strong Guy is in constant physical pain. He is near sighted and wears corrective lenses.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
Guido's comedy career has recently been taking a receding motion torwards the back seat of Hollywood's red-carpet invitational. Starting off opening for such greats as Robin Williams and Dave Chapelle, people soon started to find his routine formulaic and standard. It wasn't until he was upstaged by Carrot Top at Chevy Chase's recent 'Roast' that he realized he needed to focus more on his super hero career, and pay for the bill to the downtown ampitheatre for the damage's he costs once he threw 'Top's props all around the place. He now claims that he will win this tournament, not only because he can use his kinetic absorbing powers to topple any foe, but also because many of hollywood's mainstream elite have even more elite lawyers.

Quote: "To be or not to be... That was a famous quote..."


Real Name: Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin

Known Super Powers:
In his normal human form Peter Rasputin possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. As Colossus he can left (press) at least 70 tons under optimal conditions.
Talented artist in drawing and painting
Colossus is a mutant with the superhuman ability to convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic steel-like substance, granting him superhuman strength and a high degree of resistance to bodily harm. This substance, resembling organic steel, is of unknown composition but appears to be analogous to osmium and to carbon steel. He is able to transform into this armor-like state at will (the process is virtually instantaneous) and remain in that form for an as yet undetermined amount of time. (The longest time he has remained in armored form so far has been five days). Once in his armored form he remains so until he consciously wills himself back to normal. If he is rendered unconscious, however, he spontaneously reverts to his normal form. While in his armored state, Colossus possesses the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form.

The process by which Colossus transforms himself to armored form and back (including his gain of additional mass from an unknown, perhaps extra-dimensional, force) remains unknown. Colossus cannot become partially or selectively armored; his body is either entirely converted or not. Even his eyes become steel-like; his eyeballs can withstand anddeflect the impact of a .45 caliber bullet.

In his armored form Colossus is highly resistant to most forms of bodily harm. His armor is capable of withstanding ballistic penetration, including that of a 110 millimeter Howitzer shell. He could survive a collision with a loaded, one-ton flatbed truck at 100 miles per hour or an explosion of 450 pounds of TNT. He can survive extremes of temperature from 70 degrees above absolute zero (-390 degrees Fahrenheit) to approximately 9000 Fahrenheit. However, it is theorized that above the latter temperature, his armored form would begin to melt. Colossus's armored form cannot rust under normal Earth conditions.

Colossus is in unusually fine physical health, permitting the transition back and forth from his normal organic flesh state to his armored form to occur with minimal stress on his system. His normal lungs are capable of holding his breath for 3.6 minutes. In the past he has exhibited a minimal or nonexistent need to breathe while in his armored state. However, it is believed that he could not survive for long in a vacuum. His endurance and speed are somewhat greater in his armored form.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
He has pride, both for his beloved X-Men as well as his country. but aside all that, Colossus is recently the losing victim of a class action lawsuit, bearing the name "The Man of Steel" in several adult films he starred in when he was much younger. Optimistic he remains, however, claiming that if he does win the tournament he will have enough money to completely pay off his financial pursuers as well as enough to buy a new chew toy for his dog "D.E.M.M.Y," short for "Doesn't eat my money yay!"

Captain Britain

Real Name: Brian Braddock
Known Super Powers:
When not clad in his strength-augmenting uniform. Captain Britain possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and weight, who engages in regular exercise. With his strength augmented by his uniform, Captain Britain can lift (press) approximately 2 tons under optimal conditions.

(formerly)Captain Britain possesses a number of superhuman powers derived from his mystically enhanced uniform. First, the uniform enhances his strength. Second, the uniform enables him to fly. Captain Britain can fly at a maximum speed just under the speed of sound (770 miles per hour) for prolonged periods of time (until bodily fatigue requires him to rest). Third, the uniform can erect mystical force fields at Captain Britain's mental command. This force field is employed to protect him from atmospheric conditions while flying. It is strong enough to deflect a bazooka shell without deforming or rendering it wielder unconscious from the concussion. (Repeated blasts would weaken the field considerably, and eventually penetrate it. The uniform also enhances Captain Britain's stamina and reflexes to superhuman levels.
(Currently) Brian Braddock's mystical armaments amplify his strength, stamina and reflexes; permit him to fly; and enable him to generate a protective forcefield

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
Captain Britain's super hero career is doing quite well. He is a great asset to his team Excalibur and couldn't have a care in the world. Other than the fact that he recently lost a very expensive bet to Thanos, Magneto, Apocalypse, Mr. Sinister and Omega Red. All have agreed that if he does not pay off his debts within the next three months, they each get to divide his bodily parts equally and keep them as charms in their headquaters.

The Thing

Real Name: Benjamin Jacob Grimm
Known Super Powers:

The Thing possesses superhuman strength, enabling him to lift (press) 85 tons. The Thing's strength grew considerably over the initial years of his career. At one early point in his life as the Thing, for example, he could only lift (press) 5 tons.
The Thing possesses superhuman strength, endurance, and durability. The mutagenic, specific-frequency cosmic ray bombardment caused his musculature, bone structure, internal organ composition, soft tissue structure, and skin to greatly increase in toughness and density. The Thing can exert himself at high levels for about an hour before the build-up of fatigue poisons in his blood impairs his strength. His reflexes have remained at their above average human levels despite his greater mass. The Thing's lungs are of greater volume and efficiency than a normal man's, enabling him to hold his breath underwater for up to nine minutes, The Thing's five senses can withstand greater amounts of sensory stimuli than he could when he was a normal human being, with no reduced sensitivity.
The Thing's body is able to withstand extremes of temperature from -75° to 800° Fahrenheit for up to an hour before exposure or heat prostration occurs. He can withstand the explosive effects of armor-piercing bazooka shells (15 pounds of high explosives) against his skin with no injury. He is still susceptible to colds, disease, and emotional stress.
Unlike in the case of the Hulk, the Thing has suffered no loss of intelligence or change in personality in his transformation into his monstrous form.
The Thing is a brilliant pilot of aircraft. He has had a great deal of experience at hand-to-hand combat, and was a formidable opponent in physical combat even before becoming the Thing.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
He wishes to purchase a large lot so that he can create an art gallery for Alicia Masters.

The Rhino

Real Name: Aleksei Sytsevich

Known Super Powers:
The Rhino has superhuman strength enabling him to lift approximately 80 tons under optimal conditions. He also possesses superhuman speed (capable of running at nearly 100 mph), endurance, and a high degree of imperviousness to physical harm even without Rhino suit. The suit boosts his strength, features a bulletproof polymer mat rhino-like hide and two horns capable of penetrating 2-inch plate steel. It is highly impervious to damage, able to resist explosions equivalent to 1 ton of TNT, the impact of small anti-tank weaponry, and temperature extremes between -50˚ and 1,000˚ F without cracking or melting. It is acid resistant and removeable.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
"I heard there was money involved" he claims.

Real Name: Thor Odinson
Known Superhuman Powers:
Thor posses the strength of Class 100, enabling him to lift over 100 tons in optimal conditions.
Thor's principal weapon is the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, one of the most formidable weapons known to man or god. Among the hammer's various enchantments are its indestructibility and the ability to summon all the elements of storm (wind, rain, thunder, and lightning). His hammer can be thrown both as a means of flight, and as a weapon that always returns to its wielder's hand. Thor's superhuman strength is matched with an immunity to all human diseases, superhuman speed, agility, and simulated flight when he hurls his enchanted hammer Mjolnir.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
Thor wishes to prove Asgard's superiority over all beings.

Real Name: Kallark
Known Super Powers:
Gladiator is an alien possessed of numerous abilities, first and foremost being his extraordinary strength. Whilst the uppermost limit of his strength is unknown, Gladiator has proven able to lift over 100 tons in weight. He once lifted the entire 35 floor Baxter Building in New York City, and has boasted of being able to move whole planets. In addition to his strength, Gladiator is virtually invulnerable to the point where he has survived an explosion of nearly nova force completely unharmed. He is, however, vulnerable to certain unspecified wavelengths of radiation.
Gladiator can fly at speeds rivalling those of starships, and can achieve faster-than-light speeds in hyperspace. He can survive unprotected in the vacuum of outer space, being able to go long periods of time without needing to draw breath. Thanks to his incredible lung capacity, Gladiator is also able to draw in large amounts of air and then expel it all to create a gale force wind. Gladiator can also project intense beams of heat from his eyes that can reach temperatures comparable to those produced by stars, as well as microscopic vision that lets him see beyond the sub-atomic barrier.
Much, if not all of Gladiator's abilities are entirely dependent on his level of self-confidence. The more confident he is in being able to complete the task at hand, the more powerful he becomes. Consequently, if Gladiator ever has the slightest hint of doubt that he is unable to accomplish something, then his powers quickly weaken.

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
Gladiator is in search of candidates for the Shi'ar Imperial Guard.

Real Name: Heracles
Known Super Powers:
Hercules' principal power is his superhuman strength. Hercules' strength is well in excess of the "Class 100" Level (able to lift/press in excess of 100 tons), making him, one of the strongest beings in the Marvel universe. Hercules has highly developed leg muscles, although they do not match those of the Hulk. Hercules can make a standing high jump of at least 100 feet in Earth's gravity.
Hercules is also an Olympian thereby being an immortal, and as true immortals, the Olympian gods do not age and are not susceptible to disease. Although they can be wounded in battle, they cannot die by any conventional means, and have a rapid healing rate. Hercules has a greater resistance to physical injury than any other Olympian god except for Zeus, and possibly Neptune and Pluto. Hercules is virtually tireless. His supernaturally enhanced musculature produces no fatigue poisons. He can even survive unprotected in the vacuum of space for a brief period of time. Only an injury of such magnititude that it incinerated him or dispersed a major portion of his bodily molecules could kill Hercules. In at least some such cases, Zeus or one of the other gods might still be able to resurrect him.
As Olympus's greatest hero, Hercules is highly expert in traditional means of hand-to-hand combat, as well as in wrestling. Hercules is also very highly skilled in ancient Greek athletic feats such as the discus and hammer throws

Reason for Entering the Tournament:
Hercules heard of Thor's entry and decided to test his mettle against the Thunder god.

Wonder Man:
Real Name: Simon Williams
Known Super Powers:
Wonder Man possesses superhuman strength enabling him to lift (press) 95 tons under optimal conditions
Superhuman levels of strength and invulnerability. Due to exposure to ionic energy, his body has "fully metamorphosed" into "unspecified superhuman flesh-like substance nourished by ionic energy." Since his most recent resurrection, Simon's body becomes charged with ionic energy when actively using his powers, and he can fly under its power. During a brief period when Simon's body was further altered due to exposure to a Kree Nega-bomb, his ionic energy could be projected into energy blasts and allow him to shape-shift to a limited extent.
Wonder Man possesses superhuman strength, durability, stamina as well as the power of flight. The tissue and bones of his entire body have been augmented in strength and to a certain extent supplanted by an unknown substance during the "ionic ray" bombardment. Despite Wonder Man's statements that he is composed of "ionic energy," he is actually composed of organic matter that is permeated with this form of energy. His superhuman stamina enables him to exert himself at peak level for up to one half hour before fatigue poisons build up in his blood, causing him to tire. His skin and tissue is hard enough to enable him to resist virtually any form of penetration wound. He can withstand temperature extremes from -150 degrees to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit without any harm. He no longer requires food, water, or air, since the energy that gives him life is far more efficient and self-sustaining than the biochemical processes that sustain ordinary human life. Despite his various invulnerabilities, it still is possible to render him unconscious by a sufficiently powerful force. He still possesses nerve ending which allow him to feel pain at certain level. Because of the energy empowering him, Wonder Man no longer ages

Reason for Entering the Tournament: "Even if I lose" he says "I'll still get a chance to meet Strong Guy and work on something with him."

Real Name: Emil Blonsky
Known Super Powers:
The Abomination possesses vast superhuman strength, enabling him to lift (press) approximately 100 tons.
Blonsky's transformation into the Abomination substantially increased his strength and durability. Like the Hulk, the Abomination can use his superhumanly strong leg muscles to leap great distances, covering miles in a single bound. The Abomination has vast physical strength.
Unlike the Hulk, the Abomination's transformation has proved stable: he cannot change back and forth between his human state and his superhuman state, despite his wishes to the contrary. Though the Abomination has proven able to regenerate lost eyes and recover from other forms of massive cellular damage, his ability to regenerate tissue is much slower than that of the Hulk. One possible explanation for this is that the Hulk's remarkable regenerative abilities increases in efficiency as he becomes enraged, much like his strength. The Abomination is resistant to extremes of temperature, and can hold his breath for extended periods of time; in the case of lack of air or heat, he may enter a coma-like state of suspended
Reason for Entering the Tournament: Wishes for revenge against the Hulk.

Real Name: Cain Marko
Known Super Powers:
The Juggernaut possesses Class 100 strength, enabling him to lift (press) over 100 tons. The Juggernaut is said to be unstoppable, and the upper limit to his strength is not known.
The Juggernaut originally possessed untold mystical power which enhanced his strength to an unknown degree and made him a seemingly irresistible, unstoppable being. Once he began to walk in a given direction, no obstacle or force on Earth was able to stop him. Some obstacles, for example many tons of rock, or forces such as plasma-discharge cannons slowed his pace considerably, but nothing stopped him permanently from advancing. The Juggernaut was, however, vulnerable to magical forces of sufficient strength.
Besides giving him vast superhuman strength, the mystical energy of Cyttorak gave the Juggernaut an extraordinary degree of resistance to all forms of injury. The Juggernaut could also shield himself even further from injury by mentally surrounding himself with a force field. Enveloped by this field, the Juggernaut had been seen to survive the fiery explosion of a truck transporting a huge quantity of oil without any injury whatsoever. The Juggernaut could survive indefinitely without food, water, or oxygen thanks to his being sustained by his mystical energies alone.
In the past, the Juggernaut has temporarily possessed telepathic abilities and certain mystical powers, all of which he has since lost. Recently, however, the Juggernaut has been stripped of this mystical energy, including his personal force field. He still possesses superhuman strength, endurance and durability due to years of absorbing the mystical energies of Cyttorak, but the current upper limit of these traits is as yet unknown.
The Juggernaut wears a helmet fashioned from an unknown mystical metal found in the Crimson Cosmos dimension of Cyttorak. The Juggernaut subsequently fashioned a skullcap from scraps of the metal used to construct the helmet. The Juggernaut originally wore a suit of armor that he could summon around himself at will from the Crimson Cosmos. After being stripped of his powers, the Juggernaut took to wearing a suit of armor that resembles his original but is fashioned from unstable molecules.
Without his helmet and skullcap, the Juggernaut is vulnerable to psionic attacks against his mind.

Reason for Entering the Tournament: Money. And to see if he is truely unstoppable.

Real Name: Doctor Walter Langkowski
Known Super Powers:
As Sasquatch, Langkowski possesses vast, superhuman strength. Sasquatch could lift (press) about 70 tons. As Box Langkowski could lift (press) roughly 85 tons.
In his Sasquatch form Langkowski possesses vast superhuman strength and heightened endurance. When completely possessed by Tanaraq, Sasquatch was several times as powerful. Sasquatch is also highly agile and able to jump great distances. His resistance to conventional injury is superhuman in this form.
Early in his career, changing from his human form into his Sasquath form caused Langkowski extreme physical discomfort. To alleviate the pain, Langkowski recited a slow mantra which served the same purpose as a yoga practitioner concentrating to calm the body and to divorce pain from the physical body. Since taking over Snowbird's original body, he can now achieve his Sasquatch form with relative little pain or effort.
Langkowski is a professionally trained scientist with experience dealing with many forms of experimental radiation and their mutagenic effects on lifeforms under controlled settings. As a former professional football player, Langkowski has highly athletic physical strength and endurance, though he is no longer in the peak condition of his life.
Reason for Entering the Tournament: Wants people to know that he and Wendigo are not the same entity.

Real Name: Unkown
Known Super Powers: Wendigo possesses super strength of class 75, enabling him to lift (press) 75 tons in optimal conditions.
Reason for Entering the Tournament: Unkown

Real Name: James Proudstar
Known Super Powers:
Superhuman Class 75 (with potential to reach Superhuman Class 90 when older)
Warpath is a mutant who possesses superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes

Reason For Entering the Tournament: .To prove to people that Native Americans needn't own casino's to become wealthy.

Real Name: Fred J. Dukes

Known Super powers:
Originally the Blob did not possess superhuman strength in proportion to his size. However, recently he has undergone further mutation, greatly increasing his height and mass, and raising his strength to superhuman levels. The Blob can lift (press) 5 tons, possibly superhuman class 75.
The Blob's mutant powers relate to the mass, strength, resilience and indestructibility of his obese body. His primary ability is to become virtually immovable at will as long as he is in contact with the ground. He does this by bonding himself to the earth beneath him by force or will, which in effect creates a monodirectional increase of gravity beneath him. This gravity field extends about five feet in radius from his center of balance. Thus if there is sufficient power to uproot him, it would take the ground beneath his feet in an area corresponding to the radius of the field. Through intense concentration, the Blob is able to extend the gravity field beneath him farther than five feet.
The Blob's body has several unusual properties in itself. The first is its superhuman resistance to injury. The fat tissues that comprise the Blob's epidermis are able to absorb the impact of rifle bullets, cannonballs, bazooka, and even torpedoes. The larger of these projectiles recoil from his body at one half the force of impact. The smaller one imbed themselves in his layers of fat tissue, enabling him to eject them by merely flexing his muscles. The Blob's nerve endings do not relay any tactile perception to his brain which are near the threshold of pain. The fat tissue of his epidermis is resilient enough to revert to its normal shape within second after deformation caused by impact. It is virtually impervious to physical injury. The Blob's skin cannot be punctured, lacerated, frostbitten, or ravaged by any skin disease, due in part to the skin's greatest elasticity and toughness and in part to the highly accelerated rate at which his skin cells grow and replace themselves. His skin is somewhat less resistant to burning.
It is not yet known if there is an upper limit to the Blob's ability to absorb impact. While he could easily survive a head-on collision with a bus traveling at a hundred miles per hour, even a highly ferrous meteorite fifty feet in diameter on top of him at terminal velocity, it is not known whether he could survive a collision with an object traveling at near light speed. Further, it is not known whether his skin's imperviousness to heat could survive the 11,000,000-degree heat at ground zero of a multi-megaton atomic blast.

Eyes, ears, nose, and mouth are not as resistant to injury as the rest of his body.

Reason for Entering the Tournament: Some speculate that Dukes entered at the request of a secret benefactor, but he insists it's for the money.

The next match will be between Sasquatch and Wendigo, I will go post the thread now.

Please don't.
We have many, many, many verse threads on hype.

They tend to clutter the forum and push other threads off the page.

If you want to know who would in these match up make a suggestion to the Marvel tourament thread.
