    well the hulk takes blast from the likes of silver surfer and regenarate quickly so what can one-eye do?

    First suggestion to go live, thanks admin.

    Well, Hulk is pretty well known. Let me shed some light on this montrosity.

    Old One-Eye is a Tyranid Carnifex from Warhammer 40,000. All Carnifex genomes are Monstrous Creatures that tower many feet over your average man. Their strength is easily comparable to that of Hulk and are able to rip through the strongest metal alloys in the 40k universe.

    They also have an incredibly strong chittinous armor that is comparable in strength to Space Marine Dreadnoughts. Its is able to withstand an incredible amount of punishment.

    Little is known about this particular Carnifex. It is beleived that Old One-Eye was a mutation experiment by the Hive Mind due to being the first Carnifex to have several traits that are a bit more commonly faced in battle now. There are many mutations of Carnifexes now, but Old One-Eye seems to have been designed for pure close combat.

    The first unique characteristic is that of the giant claws. These massive pincers enhance the already supernatural strength Carnifexes have. They are able to make short work of absolutely any known material. I personally beleive these to be capable of ripping through Adamantium (as it is a component in many armours that are simply no match, such as Terminator Armour). These, above anything else, would be the main item to cause actual harm to the Hulk. Im confident that Old One-Eye possesses enought strength with these to amputate any limb of the Green Scar.

    The second, and perhaps the most important, is the capacity to regenerate from utter doom. Old One-Eyes regeneration capabilities even surpass those of Wolverine, coming closer to the regeneration that Lobo is capable of. As long as a single cell survives, Old One-Eye will return.

    The third, is simply scary in any scenario, not just this match. Old One-Eye seems to be able to call uppon the hive itself, calling down countless Tyranid monstrosities onto his possition.

    Needless to say, this monster is one scary opponent to face in battle, but I think these two are evenly matched. I will let others digest this bit of info first.

    This battle wold probably go on forever, both have titanic strength, incredible regeneration, and a pure animalistic mind driving them…

    Seriously, this is tough….hmm

  4. marche November 20, 2008 at 5:17 pm -      #4

    “Their strength is easily comparable to that of Hulk”
    well i would like to see the toughest things he has ripped through.

  5. Matapiojo November 20, 2008 at 5:20 pm -      #5

    I agree. These two are titans, and their fight would probably level entire sectors of a planet.

    However, theres a few points that need to be taken into consideration for the actual match.

    First, is Hulk’s ability to grow stronger as he gets angrier. We saw in WWH how he reacted when the truth was revealed to him. The very energy that was emanating from him was producing seismic activity of such magnitude that they feared his steps would crack the planet. As mighty as One-Eye is, he would be totally ground to a pulp…Which he would later regenerate.

    Back to square one.

    Second, it seems like One-eye’s regenerating abilities are somewhat negated by some types of energy outputs. It could very well be that Gama radiation be this sort of type. Sure, Hulk’s radiation levels are low, but seeing how Rulk is able to generate so much it is not farfetched to think Hulk might reach those levels if angry enough. The wonderful thing that lurks within banner still has countless mysteries.

    Considering those two factors, I think Hulk would win. If those two factors dont play out as I hypothesize, I think the Green Scar has met his match.

    Then theres the final element. If One-Eye feels it is close to oblivion, would he not call down the fury of the Hive onto Hulk? This I am certain Banner could not survive. No matter how amazing Hulk is.

    Me – “Their strength is easily comparable to that of Hulk”
    marche – “well i would like to see the toughest things he has ripped through.”

    Well, I am basing this on the tabletop game where Carnifexes are known to easily rip through Terminator Armour (look on the Marneus Calgar vs Darth Vader discussion), any sort of vehicle in 40k (and we have established how advanced these are on other discussion), as well as other super-being in 40k like Greater Daemons, C’Tan, Avatar of Khaine, etc. All of which are god-like and gargantually strong.

    Carnifexes are used by the Tyranid Hive Mind as his “Tanks” on the field. The Carnifex Crushing Claws further enhance their already titanic strength.

    A portion of the discovery of Old One-Eye by the Imperium:

    “Old One-Eye was a monstrous Carnifex mutation with gigantic pincers and a missing eye. The creature was found on Macragge centuries after Hive Fleet Behemoth was destroyed. Originally presumed dead, Old One Eye tore apart the ship transporting its body.”

    And a portion of Imperial Navy Vessel’s armour construction:

    “Every spacefaring vessel is equipped with a certain amount of armour, capable of deflecting impacts on the ships’ hull. The strength and thickness of the armour varies depending on the ship’s size and type – a tiny escort ship will have a ribbed outer hull maybe a foot thick or less, while an 8-kilometre-long Imperial battleship will have three separate, heavily reinforced adamantium hull layers, with a total thickness of dozens of metres. Common among all the ships of the Imperial Navy ranging from frigate to Battleship size is the armoured prow, which is massively reinforced and can be hundreds of metres thick on the largest ships as it is also used as a ram prow. It is capable of deflecting all but the most powerful of frontal hits.”

    Now, I cannot find which sort of vessel was transporting One-Eye, but the fact still remains that the ship was tore appart. Very similar to what Hulk has done in the past.

    A few links…


    Imperial Escorts (smallest ships):

    Land Raider and Leman Russ Battle Tank (some of the most comon heavy tanks that Carnifexes are able to rip appart with no trouble should they get close enough):

    Note the section for the Land Raider Armor:
    “The armour of a Land Raider is second to none. It is thick enough to withstand several hits from the strongest weapons of the Imperial armoury as well as a good deal of that of various alien armies. There is also no advantage to attacking the rear of the vehicle.
    Armour construction: 2 layers of Ceremite, 1 titanum/plasteel layer, 1 adamantium layer and 1 thermoplas layer, equivilent to 365mm conventional steel armour”

    well the hulk has survived many things.
    like storms attacks,the nova blast which is 1,000,000 degrees,Reflecting Gladiator’s eye-beams, stated to burn hotter than the heart of stars and many other feats.
    he has also broken free from supermans grip,and threw the 20-ton dragon Fin Fang Foom to the moon.

  8. marche November 20, 2008 at 7:13 pm -      #8

    and calling down the fury of the hive would be outside help,this is a 1v1 fight.

  9. L-W November 21, 2008 at 1:35 am -      #9

    This fight could go on for some period of time, with each opponent simply tearing large chunks out of one another that they would soon replace.

    The only feasible solution for victory would be attrition, which in this case would equal biomass. Both opponents, whilst tearing the almighty snot out of one another, would have to use existent mass in the sake of energy and molecular conversion in order to sustain themselves. The Hulk has this one covered simply through the use of his natural atomic conversion ability, that converts all matter in the immediate environment into biomass which he can then use to increase his current mass to almost ridiculous proportions, or regenerate lost limbs without a sudden depreciation in density.

    As long as he manages to retain his famous temper, the Hulk could sustain himself.

    Even a Tyranid needs to absorb some fissile material to continue functioning; and this could be supplied through either substances or chemical componds present in the environment, or even the Hulk himself.

    As others have mentioned, this would be an Earth shattering, tectonic crippling battle royale which could last days, even weeks; but in terms of attrition, the Hulk has the advantage. Couple this with his ability to rapidly mutate and grow into larger, far more specialised forms depending on the scenario; and the scale certainly seems to slide towards the Hulk.

    @marche – “and calling down the fury of the hive would be outside help,this is a 1v1 fight.”

    Maybe, but that IS an ability that seems to be unique to Old One-Eye amongst not only Carnifex, but many other Synapse creatures. I thought it was worth considering.

    Should that ability not be considered, then I agree with everything L-W stated in addition to the possible effects gama radiation may have on the Tyranid’s rapid regeneration (as I explained above).

  11. TL November 21, 2008 at 12:22 pm -      #11

    I’m placing my bets on the Hulk.

  12. marche November 23, 2008 at 2:33 am -      #12

    perhaps but if all that was said about one eye was true than this would be a good fight.

  13. Matapiojo November 24, 2008 at 3:14 pm -      #13

    @marche – “perhaps but if all that was said about one eye was true than this would be a good fight.”

    Yes it would be massive. I’d love to see this animated. Imagine the Ultimate Avengers animation of Hulk going berzerk x100. Hell, the punch Hulk smacked on Giant Man’s kneecap would look like a pat on the head.

    Im telling ya, limbs would fly…along with buildings.

  14. =[BF]=JimmieRox December 4, 2008 at 8:29 pm -      #14

    I may have to go against the flow here, i once saw Old One Eye destroy over 1100 points worth of a blood angel army before it was brought down!!! (The bleeding thing comes back to life!)

    Also, Hulk weighs in at 1040lb but Old One Eye weighs 8 or 9 tonnes and is 5.5m tall as compared to Hulks pathetic 7′

  15. marche December 5, 2008 at 12:25 am -      #15

    well wieght doesnt matter when you can sink an entire coast line with a step.

  16. Zulzen December 5, 2008 at 2:42 am -      #16

    I’m, going to have to say Old one eye would win because I’ve played Tyranids for many years and old one eye has massive books dedicated to him.

    “Maybe, but that IS an ability that seems to be unique to Old One-Eye amongst not only Carnifex, but many other Synapse creatures. I thought it was worth considering.”

    Very true but Old one eyes Hive actually died off and Old one eye is by him self since he can never die I mean ever you can kill him for a little bit but he can come back to life if even a spec no matter the size he can regenerate from that granted it will take him a little bit to rebuild him self but he will come back.

    Old one eye is also seen so much with other hives because since he is by him self he likes to party with other hives and if the hive mind likes it or not they can’t stop him because he can’t be converted in to bio so he can’t be eaten by the tyranids so he is no use to be killed.

    And for the people going “I Thought Tyranids where mindless” True but some aren’t mindless like homa,warrior,Carnifex and Old One eye, and the ones with out mind will gain some once there hive mind dies.

    Also One eye he has his own custom weapons granted there slow but if he gets a hold of you with his claws he will rip you down no matter the armor the creature has. Granted it would be a good fight but the hulk as soon as the planet gets destroyed by the raging power houses as far as I know the hulk can’t breath in space why one eye can just “Die” For a short period of time until he hits a plant, ship or spacehulk(dead ship usually infested with tyranids) yeah I’d like to say the hulk could win but old one eye can never die and if he is in danger he’ll just stay dead until he is safe to go again.

    “well wieght doesnt matter when you can sink an entire coast line with a step.”

    HAHAHAHA no, no it wouldn’t.

  18. =[BF]=JimmieRox December 5, 2008 at 9:52 pm -      #18

    I was talking about when L-W said in a war of attrition Hulk would win

  19. Matapiojo December 15, 2008 at 7:04 pm -      #19

    “I was talking about when L-W said in a war of attrition Hulk would win”

    Did you take into consideration the rest of his statement? Hulk grows in size and strength as he gets angrier. As apparent by the WWH event (the one we are refering to sinking a coasline with a step), he also seems to grow in density.

    This fact alone is what dictates L-W’s war of attrition scenario in favor of Hulk. I for one am forced to agree.

  20. titane 225 December 20, 2008 at 12:21 am -      #20

    would the hulk survive if its head was ripped off?

  21. marche December 20, 2008 at 1:16 am -      #21

    i don’t think he can regen that but the chances of his head being ripped off is slim.

  22. Space marine December 20, 2008 at 4:07 am -      #22

    I think one-eye could bite his head off…….But i think this could be more effective against the hulk, Ripper swarms.
    The hulk would not like small things with powerful jaws biting him a lot.
    It would be a lot like The part of the movie where he fights the dogs and had to regenerate.

  23. Space marine December 20, 2008 at 4:10 am -      #23

    Then again, What about Old one-eyes Bio-plasma?
    Wouldnt that have an effect on the hulks regen?
    Or his acid maw?

  24. masterchiefwins December 25, 2008 at 10:17 pm -      #24

    Hey Admin, how about Hulk VS. Mario and The Avatar at the same time and SSJ4 Vegeta (Dragonball Z) VS. Everyone in Mario, Avatar and Soul Calibur?

  26. Space marine January 4, 2009 at 5:50 am -      #26

    I Need confirmation about old one eye and the effect of stopping the hulks ability to regen with bio plasma.

  27. Matapiojo January 4, 2009 at 11:48 am -      #27

    I’m not sure about that, Space Marine.

    There is very little canon on Old One Eye, and the little I could find did not show the powerful Carnifex as manifesting a Bio Plasma attack as his cousins did. Remember that Old One Eye appears to be an experiment by the Hive Mind.

    Hulk has been attacked by biological super organisms before that could do a damage comparable to a Bio Plasma blast, and he has survived them. The most recent example would be the events in Planet Hulk where the parasitic Spike alien lifeforms constantly fed on Hulks bio chemistry. This feeding cause great damage to Hulk while the Spikes were attached, but he quickly regenerated once he was released.

    All in all, even though the jury is still out on Old One Eye’s capabilities of producing a Bio Plasma attack, I think the Hulk would still be capable of surviving suck a thing.

  28. Naitsabes January 17, 2009 at 9:20 am -      #28

    hulk has killed thor, beat superman senseless, survived a nuke with no problem, he’s green, and the simple fact that the madder he gets the stronger he becomes. hulk wins. end of story.

  29. Space marine January 17, 2009 at 11:10 am -      #29

    “There is very little canon on Old One Eye”

  30. =[BF]=JimmieRox January 17, 2009 at 11:37 am -      #30

    Yeah, but Old One-Eye ripped apart a spceship, but more to the point, a Carniflex is designed to rip apart Imperium war vehicles like a Leman Russ or a Baneblade. Even the table top game acknowledges his powers of regeneration!

  31. marche January 26, 2009 at 12:09 am -      #31

    hulk has supported a 150 billion ton mountain,not to mention ripping a part(not ripping but smashing it) a asteriod twice the size of earth.

  32. MJSC STARWARS January 27, 2009 at 4:21 pm -      #32

    Hulk wins. You can’t defeat Hulk, you can only be his equal. Old One-Eye is powerful, but Hulk’s gonna be the one doin’ his victory roar after this fight is done.

  33. fight February 12, 2009 at 4:50 am -      #33

    has anyone seen hulk vs thor hulk wouldnt stop everytime somebody tried he just got angrier and angrier he even took down a god! nearly killed thor broke out of a witches spell defeated everybody within thors homeworld and almost destroyed the underworld only reason he stoped was because bruce banner reunited with the hulk its gotta go to the hulk plain and simple

  34. EnigmaJ April 9, 2009 at 9:59 am -      #34

    Hey, what is the Hulk pounding away at in this picture? I find it funny because it looks kindof like an Eite from Halo >.

  35. Matapiojo April 9, 2009 at 10:06 am -      #35


    Im sure it was a “subtle” nod from admin as to whom he thinks would win being as how the Brood have similarities to the Tyranids.

  36. _1538 November 12, 2009 at 9:22 pm -      #36

    This looks like a epic fight!
    it would be hard for the hulk to block the razer sharp blades cuz hes still just skin (darn strong skin) and how fast can Old one-eye go, this could be a very fast fight if (not saying that is is) Old One-Eyes is faster than the hulks

    PLEASE tell me, I like to see other sides

  37. Will December 9, 2009 at 12:27 am -      #37

    I am a major fan of Tyranids so believe me when I say Hulk would win. First of he has absolutely no limit to his strength, especially if we’re talking about WWH Hulk. He’s with stood the power of a thousand suns when he faught the Sentry and redirected the pathes of two halves of a slitting planet and braught it back together. As said earlier he almost destroyed the world with his steps at the end of WWH. Wolverine is one of the few who can cut him and Hulk regenerating ability has been so fast before that while he clutched a wound dealt to him it healed around his fingers and he had to rip them out to free them. Also WWH has amazing fighting prowess. Now Hulk vs the whole Tyranid race would be a different story. Not because they’d kill him but when one of them took a bite out of him and made it’s way back to a digestion pool they’d have gamma powered Tyranids. Now that would be interesting.

    Update, are we counting world breaker hulk?

  39. person August 27, 2010 at 4:35 am -      #39


    sorry but hulks not a leman russ tank or a baneblade for that mater
    heres a listy of hulks feats:

    destroys an asteroid 2 times the size of the Earth
    holds up a 150 billion ton mountain
    cracks Onslaught’s armor
    defeats Gladiator
    defeats a Dog o’ War
    breaks Doom’s Force Field
    catches Iron Fist’s Punch
    Stops a Planet from Ripping Apart

    go to for more

    tering though baneblade armor

  40. gufu April 19, 2011 at 6:22 pm -      #40

    Hulk beats Old One Eye, but gets too close, and thus he gets retconned from existence by GW.

  41. Rookie June 29, 2014 at 2:23 pm -      #41

    Can’t Hulk send OOE into orbit?
