We all are a big fan of hollywood superhero The Superman and we swear by his might but we also have one mighty Indian Superhero ” Hanuman” and it would be really fair to do a test of mightiness so who would win a battle between Superman and Hanuman ?The question was asked on quora and here’s the answer from a quoran Brijesh Chandrakar;-
“Forget Superman, bring in the whole Justice League, Avengers, Thanos with infinity gauntlet, Galactus etc and still together they won’t be able to beat Hanuman in a hypothetical battle. Here is why.
Everyone knows Hanuman is immortal, but remember this line from Hanuman chalisa.
“Ashta siddhi, nava nidhi ke data,” meaning he has control and possession of 8 siddhis and 9 nidhis. What are these siddhis and nidhis?
The 8 siddhis are:
- Aṇimā: Ability to reduce one’s size
- Mahima: Ability to increase one’s size
- Garima: Ability to increase one’s weight infinitely
- Laghima: Ability to become lighter than the lightest
- Prāpti: Ability to Obtain anything
- Prākāmya: Ability to acquire anything desired
- Iṣiṭva: Lordship over creation
- Vaśitva: Having control over things
Similarly, 9 nidhis are different treasures. The 8 siddhis which are just part of the many great feats and traits Hanuman is described of in Hindu literature. With the help of these Siddhis even Thanos with his infinity gauntlet will lose within seconds as Hanuman can easily acquire anything he desired with Prākāmya. He don’t even need to fight in order to win. He can easily control his environment in his favor or just can sit down at a place forever until Superman or anyone as a matter of a fact gets tired with his efforts on giving a blow to Hanuman. He did the same with Bhima for defeating his arrogance.
Hanuman survived Bramhastra from Indrajit without using a counter weapon (only Godly weapons like Bramhastra, Sudarshan, Shiva’s trident can counter Bramhastra i.e. only weapons of Bramha, Vishnu and Mahesh/ Shiva can counter Bramhastra) and Hanuman survived it without any weapons. He is the incarnation of none other than Shiva himself. He’s the favorite of Lord Rama (Krishna/ Vishnu)”.
