A competitor in "The Games" on a version of Earth where the Skrulls invaded before the discovery of electricity.[1]


The gamma radiation that mutated the Abomination's body fortified his cellular structure and added, from some as yet unknown source, over 800 pounds of bone marrow and tissue to his body. Unlike the Hulk's, the Abomination's transformation has proved stable, he cannot change back and forth between his human state and superhuman state.

Superhuman Strength: The Abomination possesses vast superhuman strength, enabling him to lift approximately 100 tons. Although the Abomination's strength surpasses that of the Hulk at the Hulk's normal "calm" functional level, the Hulk has specially adapted adrenal gland whose secretions trigger the release of far greater amounts of physical strength than that of the Hulk's normal level to correspond to his heightened emotional states, while Abomination does not. Hence, the Abomination's strength does not fluctuate like the Hulk's. The Abomination great strength also extends into the highly developed and powerful muscles of his legs, enabling him to leap great distances. He has been shown to cover a distance of 2 miles in a single bound.

Superhuman Stamina: The Abomination's highly advanced moleculature produces vastly less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. He is capable of physically exerting himself at peak capacity for several weeks before the built up fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.

Superhuman Durability: In addition to great strength, the Abomination's bodily tissues are substantially harder and more resistant to injury than the tissues of an ordinary human.

Suspended Animation: Extreme pain, cold, or extended lack of oxygen cause the Abomination to enter a coma-like state of suspended animation, in which he can survive, perhaps indefinitely.

Strength level

Surpasses that of a "calm" Hulk


While similar to the Hulk in almost every way, the Abomination differs from the Hulk in three ways:

1. His transformation is permanent.
2. His strength doesn't increase with anger as the Hulk does.
3. He regenerates from damage at a slower rate than the Hulk.
