Who’d win in a fight between Superman and Spawn? How the f*ck old is Cable? And what in the holy hell is a Megatron? When the tough questions arise, Panels on Pages will gather the facts, but it’s up to the PoP!ulation to draw its own conclusions. So come on… Riddle Me This.
We’ve all heard the line. No, not “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch.” I was referring to “the unstoppable Juggernaut.” Unstoppable. It’s had a lot of interpretations over the years. When Cain Marko first accessed the power of the Ruby Gem of Cyttorak, it transformed him and gave him superhuman strength and durability, and an ability to “never be stopped once in motion.” Over the years, Juggernaut’s strength has been shown to rival the Hulk’s and his invulnerability has been augmented by a mystical force field. Does he have the sheer might to punch through layer after layer of earthen crust and molten lava? Indubitably.
Still, there have been instances of Juggernaut feeling pain, and few things would hurt more than the heat of the Earth’s core. Then take into account Cyttorak’s penchant for tugging at his examplar’s strings and reducing or stripping him entirely of his power, and… well – let’s just say I wouldn’t want to run out of steam three miles down.
Obviously, this is all fiction. Every such question has only one true answer: “Juggernaut can do whatever the writer and artist decide they’re going to make him do.” There will always be an explanation. It’s just that some are better than others, and some things are just unforgivable. But we’re not worried about the whys wherefores right now. This is just a question of possiblity. So…
Riddle me this! Could the Juggernaut punch his way through the Earth?
