The Marvel Universe is home to a vast array of incredibly powerful characters, each with its own unique abilities and strengths. Two of the most formidable villains in this universe are the High Evolutionary and Thanos, both of whom possess god-like powers that have been instrumental in shaping the course of Marvel history. Both villains are extremely intelligent and have proved capable of taking on some of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe. When it comes to the battle between Thanos and High Evolutionary, who would win in a fight?
Thanos would win in a fight against High Evolutionary. He vastly overpowers him in a physical sense, has more versatile powers at his disposal, and counters High Evolutionary at every step. He is likewise faster and more ruthless. It wouldn’t be an easy fight for Thanos, but with enough planning and strategizing, which Thanos is famous for, he would have no trouble winning this fight.
Now that we’ve covered that Thanos would win this fight, it’s time to analyze why. We’re going to compare each character’s powers, abilities, strength, and combat skills, so you can see why we came to our conclusion. If you’re interested in more, stay with us and keep reading!
Powers and abilities
High Evolutionary mostly excels when it comes to artificial evolution and genetics, but he does have powerful offensive abilities at his disposal. He can project energy blasts and create force fields. He can utilize his telepathic abilities to control other beings and entities. He can astrally project his body over long distances and can alter his size at will. If High Evolutionary feels extremely destructive, he can utilize his armor’s powerful plasmatic rays to deal serious damage.
Thanos is highly proficient in projecting and manipulating energy. He can use a range of mystical energies to create force fields, alter matter, and distort reality to a limited degree. Additionally, he can emit highly destructive blasts and heat beams from his eyes. One of Thanos’ most powerful skills is his ability to manipulate others, inducing madness and altering their senses. However, Thanos’ ability to manipulate elements is somewhat limited, and he relies heavily on mystical items to enhance his powers and abilities.
Both High Evolutionary and Thanos have extremely powerful abilities, but Thanos seems to have more lethal powers at his disposal. The point goes to him.
Points: High Evolutionary (0:1) Thanos
Strength and Stamina
High Evolutionary’s strength is somewhat limited when compared to his other powers and abilities. It depends on what form he’s in; that’s true, but he is mostly classified as strength level 2, which means that he is capable of lifting his own weight, and that’s roughly 200 lbs without armor. Due to the fact that Evolutionary is a more advanced form of human being, he self-evolved to the point where his metabolism is highly efficient, which means that he can exert himself for long periods of time before getting tired. His armor helps in this aspect as well.
Thanos’s exact strength cannot be calculated. He can lift more than 100 tons easily. This is due to his hybrid Eternal/Deviant physiology, which makes him far more powerful even compared to an eternal. He can empower himself further by other cosmic and mystical means, and there’s truly no end to what kind of damage Thanos can cause by his strength alone. Due to his unique physiology, Thanos produces next-to-nothing fatigue toxins. He can perform at his peak state for days and weeks without getting tired or suffering adverse effects.
Thanos vastly overpowers High Evolutionary in terms of physical sense. The point goes to Mad Titan.
Points: High Evolutionary (0:2) Thanos
High Evolutionary can teleport and fly, He has the technology, but he lacks blinding speed, which most superpowered Marvel characters are famous for. High Evolutionary is considered to have normal speed at his disposal, which likewise translates to combat as well. He might traverse cosmic distances in mere moments due to his technology and other powers and abilities, but his movements alone are still, at this point, human.
Thanos can, on average, achieve speeds up to 700 miles per hour, although he has been consistently shown to be able to reach faster-than-light speeds if needed. He can likewise fly and teleport himself to cover vast distances quickly. When it comes to combat, Thanos’ reflexes and agility are unmatched despite his bulky frame.
Thanos is massively faster than High Evolutionary. If the fight comes down to teleporting, he might stand a chance, but when it comes to speed, he can’t compare.
Points: High Evolutionary (0:3) Thanos
High Evolutionary is equipped with Evolutionary Exoskeleton. This is a special suit of armor that allows him to be nearly immortal. The suit is programmed to rebuild him from scratch even if he sustains lethal damage. Due to basically being a highly evolved human, and in some instances, he doesn’t even have a physical form, he is highly immune to damage. His healing factor is capable of regrowing organs, limbs, or even an entire body if needed.
Thanos has enhanced durability and an extremely fast healing factor. He can tank damage from Marvel powerhouses and walk away unharmed. He can sustain massive injuries both to his frames and internal organs and recover completely within minutes. He is extremely difficult to kill, but it’s possible. Only a few Marvel Universe metals can pierce his incredibly durable skin. It’s questionable whether Thanos can even die, but in any case, it’s possible to harm him.
Thanos is a tough nut to crack, but High Evolutionary can rebuild his body from scratch. The point goes to him.
Points: High Evolutionary (1:4) Thanos
As we’ve mentioned before, High Evolutionary was an extremely brilliant scientist before he became what he is today. His knowledge of evolution and genetics is unparalleled, and he can be considered among the smartest beings in Marvel Universe. High Evolutionary evolved himself. He created a completely new species. He developed powerful tech with the potential to turn stars to dust. He learned everything there is about biology, and his knowledge keeps growing on da day to day basis. Have I mentioned that he managed to turn himself into a bunch of data? That’s how smart he is.
If High Evolutionary was up against anybody else in this category, he could have, perhaps, won by a landslide, going against Thanos; however, we can’t guarantee anything. Thanos is a genius. He is known to manipulate weaknesses to his advantage and weaponizes his intellect to a great extent. He can read any sort of character and discern the true intentions of his allies and enemies alike. He was known to be a genius among his kind from a young age and successfully predicted the downfall of Titan and many other planets. He is a great tactician, manipulator, and altogether brilliant mind that processes information and makes plans at blinding speeds.
Both High Evolutionary and Thanos are considered to e super geniuses, and the point goes to both.
Points: High Evolutionary (2:5) Thanos
High Evolutionary practically has non-existent combat skills. He is lethal when he has access to his technology, but in unarmed combat, he has nothing. This makes sense. In his line of work, he doesn’t have to rely on his skills. He has plenty of toys to take care of problems, even on the cosmic scale.
On the other hand, Thanos started training in armed and unarmed combat from a young age on his homeworld of Titan. He mastered almost every combat discipline there is and has hundreds of years of experience. Thanos is a master in hand-to-hand combat, but his true lethality lies when he is armed with his double-bladed sword.
High Evolutionary’s combat skills can’t even begin to compare with Thanos’. This point goes to Thanos.

Thanos vs. High Evolutionary: Who is stronger, and who wins?
Thanos would win against High Evolutionary. As you can see from our analysis, Thanos outclasses him in almost every physical aspect. The only thing that Evolutionary has going for him that can offer a semblance of resistance is his durability. He is impossible to kill, and Thanos would struggle, but with a little planning, I have no doubt that Thanos would figure out a way to dispose of him for a long time, at least. Evolutionary has godlike powers in terms of science application, and he can be highly destructive at times, but there’s nothing he has that Thanos can’t tank or isn’t used to.
