25 Reasons Space Marines Are Awesome

There’s a lot of talk these days surrounding the ‘who would win’ scenarios and a notable omission from many of these is the Space Marine, from Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 game. Here’s why your average Space Marine could take most superheroes and monsters to the cleaners…

FYI This is a Space Marine

“They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.” - The Emperor of Mankind

1. They were created by the God Emperor of mankind to travel across the galaxy and create the Imperium - an empire of humanity spanning all of known space. As job descriptions go, that’s pretty kick ass.

2. They’re about 7’6” tall.

3. Let’s look at their physiology. These guys were genetically engineered, and they’ve been given a few extra parts. Most obviously, they have two hearts.

5. And they can breathe in poisonous fog due to their third lung.

6. And they can live to be over 1,000 years old.

7. Then there’s their armour. Power armour is some of the toughest garb in the galaxy and makes each Space Marine as tough as a tank.

8. Then there’s Terminator Armour (or Tactical Dreadnought Armour to be precise). This is only for the most hardcore Space Marines fighting against the most hardcore enemies.

9. Oh, and when a Space Marine is almost killed, he might get entombed in a Dreadnought - A massive construct that can pack some serious punch and firepower.

10. Not convinced? Then take a look at their sweet rides. Whether you dig bikes…

12. …even bigger tanks…

13. …or massive battle barges and strike cruisers that move through space and are capable of destroying entire planets, these guys travel in style. Terrifying, awesome style.

14. Then you’ve got their weapons. This is the boltgun or ‘bolter’. It can fire explosive shells on fully-auto. Nice.

15. There are metla guns, flamers, plasma guns, assault cannons, lascannons, missile launchers and more, just to add to all the kill-power.

16. There are a thousand different Chapters of Space Marines. Ranging from the cursed, vampiric Blood Angels…

17. …to the devout and purposeful Dark Angels.

18. There are the Viking-like Space Wolves…

19. …and the well-rounded, regal Ultramarines.

20. So many chapters.

21. They’re pretty good at killings Daemons.

22. They’re also pretty good at killing aliens.

23. In fact, they’re isn’t really much they can’t or won’t kill because there’s nothing they’re scared of. They know no fear.

24. Because, quite simply, they are the most badass super-soldiers that the galaxy has ever known

25. So who would win in a fight between these guys and anybody? These guys. End of.
