IDK. Superman didn't look like he necessarily would have made it had he not sucked the life out of those flowers. Granted whatever hit Superman wasn't necessarily a thermonuclear bomb, it was some magical shit that literally produced ash out of thin air.

>>77835585
The question is about who can no-sell it, not get out of it. Like, Swampy could send his consciousness far underground but that wouldn't count.

My best bet would be: Superman, Captain Marvel, Captain Britain high on ego, a super-confident Gladiator, Captain Atom, Jason Rusch's Firestorm, Sentry, any Hulk, The Thing (if it were a tiny, shitty old nuke), Thor, Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill, Toyo Harada, Peter Stanchek, X-O Manowar, Divinity, Element Lad, Spectre, Alan Scott, Wolverine (sadly), Marvelman, Supreme, and lastly, Plastic Man.

Kyle Rayner in one of his invincible OC Donut Steel forms (Ion, White Lantern etc.)

Anyone in the Shazam family (including Black Adam and friends) because those fuckers are invincible.

Nevermind the fact that his own people would nuke superman, the fact that he was reduced to a zombie skeleton, or the absolute destruction the whole ordeal wrought.
The thing I found the most disturbing about the whole thing is that superman has the ability to suck the life out of something until its dry.
what the fuck.
>>
>>77837204
In truth Superman only has one power. His power is that he can do anything the writers find convenient.
>>
>>77835969
The thing is, I say sadly because he's done it. It sucks, but he does it.

>>77835871
I think that modern thermonuclear devices are generally going to be strong enough to knock most people down for the count. Shazam family would definitely stand, but outside of that I can't think of too many more for my list. I have a hard time buying a regular Green Lantern being able to withstand one going off right on them. Maybe a power-boosted one like Ion Rayner, Red/Green Guy, Parallax Hal, etc, but not too many else. I didn't list all the rest of the superman expies in the world but yeah.

J'onn? Would his weakness to fire play a major role?

Oh, and Wildfire.

Does nuclear war scare the living shit out of anyone else?
>>
>>77837935
Not normally, but I was playing Fallout today when my town decided to test our emergency sirens.

I got a little nervous.
>>
>>77837935
I'm pretty sure most people here were born after the Berlin wall came down, so nuclear war is perceived like an asteroid impact. It's certainly possible, and will kill us all dead, but isn't likely enough to worry about.
>>
>>77838075
But, I mean, holy shit. Can you imagine humanity having it's shit busted up by a nuclear war? I'd take a comet impact or a super volcano any day. With either of those it's just humanity weathering the shitty hand the universe dealt, but a nuclear war... That's humans stating to the universe "we are worthless shits that commit suicide even when we are given everything on a platter because we and everything we care about is worthless". I can't even express how awful the concept of nuclear war is.
>>
>>77838142
the big scary guy on the horizon isn't Russia anymore, it's China

and China fucking loves the West, or at least loves its money

anyone that mentions North Korea in any sort of seriousness deserves to be laughed at until they kill themselves in despair
>>
>>77838142
I care less about the threat of it to me personally than as utterly devaluing everything that I am, everything that anyone ever was, and everything that anyone has ever cared about. Resisting against an asteroid impact is noble. Wiping one's own species out is proof positive that everything about you and your species is absolute shit. I really, really, REALLY don't like the idea of that.
>>
>>77838208
Yeah, but...who'll be around to care? It's the slow death of super diseases, global famine, another ice age that I'm worried about. Something where there are enough people left to struggle on until the end, in complete futility.
I'd take the quick cleansing flames of the nuke over that any day.

global thermonuclear war is honestly a remote possibility, enough of one that it's not worth worrying about. Nuclear power limits your warmongering ability, because all of a sudden everyone on the planet is looking at you, and if you move funny the entire human race is going to rape you out of existence.

A nuclear strike happening in the future is not impossible. A nuclear war wiping out humanity is much less likely.

It's more worrisome to think of nuclear weaponry falling into terrorist hands, honestly.

You don't get it. The nuclear war wouldn't have to wipe out every single person in the initial exchange. It would annihilate global civilization, ruin the climate, lead to endless brushfire wars to fill the power vacuums left and to fight over the little remaining food and resources, and send humanity into a gradual decline that would inevitably lead to extinction. Without cheaply accessible fossil fuels and a significantly less habitable environment humanity won't be able to bounce back. Our chance of making it into space in a big way before something finishes us off will be gone.
>>
>>77838256
It's funny, because those things are the likely result of a major nuclear war.

The living would envy the dead.

We have made movies, games, stories of its power. Hell, you could honestly say that superheroes are a kind of personification of them.

But the horror of their use is much much worse. It is our race's collective means of suicide.

Actually they produce sugars using light. Are you saying Superman's powers run off of sugar and that he can psychically suck sugar out of anything around him?
>>
>>77838709
I wouldn't say he was weak. Everything after the nuke doesn't count because he was weakened by it. As for his weakness to the nuke itself, he probably just absorbed too much of the wrong radiation. Stars are fusion explosions after all and Kryptonians are very sensitive to what kind of fusion explosion radiation they are absorbing.

>>77838692
You realize you're being a clown who reads too much comic books, yes? Being inclined to chemically absorb certain types of radioactive isotopes under certain conditions doesn't mean that they 'literally soak up radiation'.

It's hard to comprehend the terror of finality on a scale multiple orders of magnitude beyond the individual person's life.
Mad Max is the absolute best case scenario for a thermonuclear exchange on any scale beyond the tactical; if, at the height of the cold war, we actually used any significant portion of our arsenal and they responded in kind, we would potentially be waiting millions of years for land-based life more complex than moss to re-evolve.

For those interested in supplemental reading/aftermath theory, read Norman Schell's Fate of the Earth.

Captain atom would definitely withstand it, even if he didnt absorb it.
Firestorm might be able to pull it off too, considering nuclear stuff are his area.
Alan scott and powered up lanterns can too.
Captain marvel, superman and black adam would still stand.

That hardly counts, since that's the only version that actually is affected by it.

It was implied that Joe Fixit would die at the heart of a nuke. But he sure was close to one before being rescued.

EMP. Electromagnetic Pulse. That's radiation too. Fuckin dweebs don't know any science, I swear.

NK just flashes their Nukes so we'll give them more money to make them go away

Swamp Thing since he's probably still alive and can manipulate plant matter and either Metamorpho for utility, or Supes for comfort. Clearly I'm the last human and so they feel obligated to help me for not stopping the war

Star Brand. Back in the New Universe days. Before the faggoty Avengers one. Had one blow up in his face. "At least it cleaned that mud off".

Please guys. The answer is simple.

Vision and Kitty Pryde can just phase through it

They have to have. That is literally the only reason they are reactors.
But they don't have the kind of densities that would lead to a nuclear explosion. A runaway chain reaction in a nuclear reactor basically turns it into radioactive lava that starts burning its way through the floor. There's even a word for the stuff, it's called corium.

You are mistaken. Weapons grade Uranium-235 is difficult to create because it is difficult to remove enough of the unwanted isotopes. Reactor uranium gets away with having more of those isotopes because reactors are meant to release their energy in a fizzle, not an instantaneous explosion. It is utterly impossible for a nuclear reactor to cause a nuclear explosion. The worst that could happen is that the reactor gets so hot that the fuel rods melt and burn through the reactor floor.

>>77846380
Yes, that is exactly what I said. They don't have the U-235 density to cause an explosion.

Meman....he's got t..the power of y..you and I...and we? Y..yeah we!

Pym could go subatomic, or just grow larger than reality itself.

>>77846410
Density isn't the right word. Purity is more accurate. They literally just stop short in the purification process before moving on to weapons grade.

>wonder woman
If she can do that, why does she need bracers to deflect bullets?

Though you are technically correct, when one is talking about the EMP from a nuclear detonation one very typically referring to the pulse produced by ionizing radiation interacting with the ionosphere. Superman wouldn't be affected by that. He would be affected by the radiation directly from the blast.

Though technically correct, you should

There was a time when a nuke was right on the threshold of supe's survivability level.

Didn't take long post-Byrne for the rampant power scaling to get him right back to near-Silver Age levels of goofiness

Dr Fate survived one in kingdom come and saved a bunch of other people
