Oooh, cool thread

Hal Jordan - 6'0''
Superman - 6'4''? Shorter than J'onn but taller than Wonder Woman or just about anyone else. He always looks WAY bigger than Batman, both in terms of height and breadth

Batman - 6'2''. Possibly 6'1''. Height isn't his thing, he's rarely shown towering over anyone other than Robin or the Penguin. Joker's taller than him.

Captain America - 6'2'' is about right. I can see him being slightly taller than Batman but wouldn't think he's as tall as Supes

Thor - 6'4'' in the olden days, 6'7'' now. Towers over everyone this side of She-Hulk

BRB - 6'8''-6'9''. Slightly taller than Thor ... think his head's bigger.

Herc - same as Thor but a few lbs heavier. His size was emphasised more than Thor's back in the day - Hulk would call him 'big man' and such.

Hulk - nowadays? Like 10'0''. I don't like it but the Hulk just gets bigger and bigger over the years, as other heroes become more exaggerated. That's just the way it goes. At least he hasn't got back to the Heroes Reborn Liefeld proportions, where he could hold Thor in one hand like King Kong.

Sasquatch - same as Hulk, I guess. I prefer him bigger, I like the idea that Hulk's not the biggest hero around but unlike Hulk, Sas has stayed pretty much ten feet tall since his debut.

Colossus - maybe 7'0''? A head higher than other superheroes but smaller than Hulk or Juggernaut. Again, I quite like the idea of Colossus being taller but more slender than those guys but it's no longer the case. In fact, contrary to their Handbook figures (7'5'' vs 6'10''), Colossus has never been drawn as tall as Cain in the comics.

Juggy - 10'0''. As big as the Hulk. At least one artist drew Cain bigger than the Hulk and IIRC he was said to be bigger than the Hulk by some prison guards in one appearance. He dwarfed the Hulk in the old Marvel vs Capcom game too.

Oh and classic She-Hulk's usually drawn at least 3 or 4 inches taller than Thor or Herc. In the early days, Byrne and others tended to stick pretty close to her Handbook height of 6'7'', at least compared with those gods, but she's usually drawn much taller than them now. I remember Buscema had Thor coming up to about Shulkie's chin when they went nose to nose.

Wonder Woman's probably 6'2'' or 6'3''. When they made 'JLA: Crisis On Two Earths', the animators made a point to draw Diana taller than any other Leaguer apart from J'onn and Supes, and I think that's carried over to the comics

Similarly, in the old 'Defenders' book, Valkyrie was shown absolutely towering over the likes of Namor and Hyperion.

Yup, then one Kryptonian was turning back tie and throwing the moon in front of the sun to beat his opponent. Special effects brah... do you even lift?

Yep.

So jacked up Superstar with the Larry David hairdo, as opposed to Kung Fu Action TM Superstar?

Could've been crocodile tears, of course. I just can't imagine this guy knowing any emotion, apart from sheer rage and jealousy when WCW was kicking his arse in the ratings and childish mirth whenever he sees a 300lb hillbilly or has the opportunity to get one of his staff to wrap their lips around his buttcheeks on camera.

I agree he's looking downright weird. Looks like he's had some work done. His eyelids look like they're attached to a puppet master's strings, they seem to be trying to journey to the stars. He looks like one of those background muppets who used to pop up on Sesame Street wearing a fedora and dancing by waving their arms around randomly.

In one of those scans, Peter says he might be stronger than Iron Man 'if I put my mind to it'

That's fucking crazy. Back in the day, Tony threw down with Namor several times and held his own, and going into the 90s, looked to be easily in Thing's weight class for strength, even without an external amp.

Just goes to show how far Tony's fallen. The spotlight's on all his fancy-pants gadgets and sensors now and has been taken off his brute strength.

Definitely Ronan. On a par with Ares physically and the Universal Weapon is phenomenally powerful, close to Mjolnir's level.

I wouldn't go THAT far....

It went blast for blast with Mjolnir when Eric Masterson was wearing the winged helmet and Masterson struggled to overpower it.

Not to be outdone, movie Aragorn can one-hand toss Gimli and make it look easy.

Not sure about easy ... how much does Gimli weigh anyway and how hard did Aragorn toss him (*snigger*)?

I'd guess Gimli could've been as much as 200lbs in his armour.

There was that beastly deflection of Lurtz' thrown knife, which was even more impressive because Viggo Morgenstein did it for real

I'd say Gimli was about 200 pounds when you factor in his stoutness, his armor, and his weapons, yeah.

Looking back at the scene, he reaches down to Gimli with one hand but when it cuts to the actual throw, it looks like he might've used both hands.  Either way, it's a decent toss.  Conan could easily do the same but I think it's worth pointing out.

I think Conan's stronger by a country mile in the movies at least. At the beginning of 'Conan The Destroyer', a couple of baddies tie him up in a net but Conan braces himself and drags over THREE horses. That's sick, maybe his best strength feat in either of the movies.

I remember when it took two Kryptonians to pick up a single bus.

So how did that massive building segment Tony dropped on Thanos compare with a bus, then?

I'm no expert and it's years since I read LOTR but isn't Aragorn effectively superhuman in the novel?

Agreed that movie Aragorn loses to Conan, although he was one tough motherfucker

There were references about it during Dark Reign run.
To be fair Ares was more the god a berserker would worship, a skilled soldier or general would pray on Athena for help.

There's a scene in the Iliad when the two gods clash and Athena crushes Ares with ease, saying that he's basically the god of bloodlust whereas she's the goddess of strategy and is far stronger than him.
