Marvel Comics has given us a lot of heroes with Super Strength. We Have Thor, Hyperion, Spiderman, Colossus, The Thing, She- Hulk and Hercules. These are just to name a few. But no one comes even close to represent the raw, brute strength in all its glory like the way the Hulk does. The Jade Giant is the very epitome of legendary brute strength. The Hulk aka Bruce Banner is not someone to be trifled with easily. Apart from his enormous strength, The Hulk also possesses a host of other abilities that truly make him the strongest Avenger in terms of strength. To challenge his position, we have the Juggernaut. Cain Marko is the juggernaut, the big bad mutant with an attitude problem in the Marvel Universe. Cain Marko is probably the only being in the whole wide Earth with what it takes to challenge the Jade Giant to a fist trading contest. What if the two guys got into a fight? Presenting Juggernaut vs Hulk – Which Muscle Man will win in a one on one fight……
NOTE – we are talking about the movie versions of these characters. So please refrain from being a buzzkill by mentioning World breaker Hulk in the comments. Cheerio.
The Hulk is the Avengers’ Musclehead. He can lift buildings with one hand, hell; he can break apart a planet into two just by punching the ground if he is angry enough. The Hulk is one of the strongest beings in the whole Marvel Universe. He has singlehandedly destroyed the Chitauri Leviathan War ships, living Warships with insurmountable durability that are used as troop carriers by the Chitauri, with just one blow to the hull. He has fought the Hulkbuster armor and won. He has extreme durability.
Hulk has fallen from the Stratosphere and lived to tell the tale. He has shot himself and still managed to breathe. There is just nothing that the Hulk cannot outlive. The Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the Hulk is a true beast in its own right. Granted it is not even at the fraction of his strength as that of the comic book version, I would still not try and get in his way if I was Juggernaut. Or should I??
Cain Marko made his first cinematic appearance in X-Men: The Last Stand. But it is the Deadpool 2 version we are talking about. That one was a true beast. Remember Colossus from the movie? In the comic books, Colossus is considered the World’s Strongest Mortal. He has managed to rip open the Gates of Hell with his bare hands alone in the comic books. And yet, Cain Marko made him bite his own ass in the movie. The Juggernaut is not just some every day brawn. He is truly special. He is not a mutant to be exact.
The Juggernaut is actually powered by the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, a mystical gem that gives him all his powers. Juggernaut’s primary ability is not super strength. Juggernaut’s true ability is momentum. Once Juggernaut starts to run, there is no force in the universe that can stop him. There is a reason Juggernaut is locked up to his teeth in his holding cell. Apart from unstoppable momentum and super strength, Juggernaut also has superhuman durability and a healing factor.
Final Fight – Juggernaut vs Hulk
At first glance, fans would be quick to pass their judgment by saying the Hulk would be winning this one hands down. But that would be just the fanboys in them talking. Sure the Hulk is more popular and he is better known amongst even the non-comic book fans but last I checked, popularity does not mean muscle strength. So you will have to start looking at this fight via a neutral lens. It is then that the real fun begins when you realize that how evenly matched these guys are.
Are you ready to know the answer?
It is the Hulk!!! Naturally, the Juggernaut might prove more than a match for the Hulk during the beginning of the fight. But there is just no way the Juggernaut can take on the Hulk head on and be victorious. The Hulk may have been underpowered in the movies but he has one vital aspect of his ability still intact – his rage. The Angrier the Hulk gets, the stronger he becomes. Juggernaut can run and run as much as he wants. But the moment the Hulk starts taking this seriously, this fight is over. No matter how neutral you are, there is just no way you see the Juggernaut winning this one.
