Captain Atom has definitely had showings in the realm of losing to Spiderman. There was that time he got his head caved in by the missile for one. Around that period he was constantly getting humiliated.


That was a stinger missile and no its not worse than losing to Spider-Man. Even in those days he was consistently among the most powerful heroes in the world.

See, there you're just lying. He was a punching bag in the early 2000s. Sure, depending on how wide a circle you're casting with "among the most powerful heroes in the world" your comment might still be able to shoehorned in, but to imply he was being portrayed as an elite top tier in that era is blatantly wrong. He got chumped by Major Force, who himself was in the habit of always getting his ass kicked around then, too, he got beaten by Hawkeye in JLA/Avengers, I don't remember Batman/Superman being too kind to him, and it seemed like he was frequently being overloaded with energy and shooting off into the future, Power Girl just about murdered him, etc.

You could more credibly argue for him if you just acknowledged that he was in a rough run for a while and has since recovered.

Back in the day, Hulk eventually punched through and overpowered the Stranger's field of kinetic energy that could change the orbit of a planet. no random kryptonian alone have a feat comparable to that, and that was one of the weakest Hulks that did that
Even Power Girl has (Who was explicitly weaker than even Byrne Superman) powered through a quasar and pulled several heroes with her.

Hulk is just puny compared to that.

She was nowhere near the core of the quasar for it to matter. It's hardly quantifiable for it to mean anything of note.

And please remind me why she or her feat of pulling through something is relevant in a thread discussing striking strength that doesn't even feature her?

Which version of Jean here is a big factor.  And shit they have too many ways to come at J'onn. 
I'm like unless this is J'onn being kept from oreos.  This is a 10/10 for the X-men.

They would excel against him. X-Men 10/10.

I feel as if this fight would be one for the books if they were competing in front of their respective reality's heroes. Trying to prove a point that they aren't the loser everyone thinks they are. On paper, FL should win if he were to actually use all of his Herald powers. But then again, The same could be said for CA. He has just as many uses for his Quantum energy as the power cosmic. I need more info on these two. Who's the most powerful being either ever having actually defeated.

When asked about if the wild fires changed his opinion on climate change his response was

"No. No. I have a strong opinion. I want great climate. And we're gonna have that."

I feel like he's been appearing somewhat prominently lately, though, is that true? How's he looked? Because I also feel like FL hasn't been around in ages after he seemed primed to get a push after Annihilation. Which is kind of fine because Giffen wrote a highly out of character version of the character, but still.
Post Flashpoint Cap was a Dr Manhattan type of character and would stomp Silver Surfer much less Firelord.
