Both the Beyonder and the One-Above All have a decent claim to being the strongest character in the Marvel Universe. Each possesses an effectively unlimited amount of power, and they have both treated some of Marvel’s most famously strong cosmic beings like toys in landmark events like Secret Wars.
Now, we’re taking a closer look at both of these omnipotent cosmic powerhouses to see which one truly is the strongest being in the Marvel Universe.
Although he has only made occasional appearances in the Marvel Universe, the One-Above-All is said to be responsible for the existence of all life in the multiverse. First appearing in 2004’s Fantastic Four #511, by Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo, the One-Above-All sees and knows all. With no set appearance, he also has the ability to appear anywhere and everywhere at the same time and he exists beyond space and time.
With so much unlimited power at his grasp, he is considered to be the most powerful character in the Marvel Universe. He’s also the superior master of the cosmic overseer and judge known as the Living Tribunal. As the creator of the Marvel Universe, he’s even taken the appearance of Jack Kirby, the comics legend who was a driving factor in the creation of most of Marvel’s biggest franchises.
While the Beyonder and the One-Above-All are both immensely powerful reality-warpers of the highest order, the One-Above-All is an order of magnitude stronger than the Beyonder. While the Beyonder has gotten caught up in the rivalries of the Marvel Universe and seen his power taken by mere humans, the One-Above-All truly exists in another realm, where he stands omnipresent and omnipotent.
