Heroic Table of Elements by mattcantdraw Heroic Table of Elements by mattcantdraw
A more scientific look at what makes a superhero or super-villain tick. ‘Heroic’ numbersdescribe overall power and are taken from superherodb.com (although in some cases I had to calculate the values myself).

Awww, thanks! It took a looooooooong time. Even then, there were at least 8 mistakes (thanks, internet!)

Glad you like it! :D

i am really digging this!
however, since no one else mentioned it, i want to point out another date error: Destiny of the Endless was not created in 1989 with the other Endless. he is the only one who was already in the DC universe before Sandman. he was created in 1971 for "Weird Mystery Tales" #1.

Gorramit!

Thanks for the comment! I updated this puppy a few weeks back and no, I didn't know that Destiny predated the other Endless by 18 years!

Thanks again, I'm sure there are even more errors to spot...

He deserves more than a 15... Not just for rocking those tight black speedos like a king.

I know. Logically, I would put the god-like beings (Thor, Manhattan) up where Hydrogen and Carbon would normally be. Then have Superman on the second row, since he is not quite at god status. Great concept though. :D Do a Villain one next.

I've got the villains at the bottom!

And I decided to go with group affiliation (like Noble gases, etc) instead of in order of power... Maybe it could look cool the other way.

I did wonder why Metamorpho the Element Man (of all people) wasn't included with the Justice League - but then I realized he was an Outsider.

Ok so it is cool however it is incorrect. Several of the dates are wrong, for example iceman beast and angel are listed as 1969 and 1968 when in fact they appeared with cyclops jean grey and professor X in X-men from the beginning (1963).....

Damn it. Ok, so that's Wonder Woman is not an alien, and the original X-Men have the dates wrong...

These shall be changed sir!

Yes I did. I figured he was pretty much already dead in the opening scene, so... yeah.

I was also upset that I had to remove Judge Dredd :(

Quick question: do higher power numbers mean they're more powerful? Thanks

:iconroobers:
roobers Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
I believe that is what the numbers mean, although being a huge fan of Superman I am skeptical of the accuracy of those numbers, but oh well it's all fiction anyways hahaha but that doesn't make it any less entertaining :)

This is pretty cool. But are the numbers right? Dr. Manhattan is only a 15 and Martian Manhunter is 17?

mattcantdraw Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
I would have put Dr Manhattan in the 20's myself... but superherodb.com says he's only worth 15 :(
