The Juggernaut (Cain Marko) is a fictional character that appears in publications published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in X-Men (July 1965), and was created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby.

Since his debut during the Silver Age of Comic Books the character has appeared in over four decades of Marvel publications, featuring prominently in the X-Men titles and starring in two one-shot solo publications. The character has also been associated with Marvel merchandise including clothing, toys, trading cards, animated television series, video games, and the 2006 superhero feature film, X-Men: The Last Stand, where he was played by Vinnie Jones as a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

In 2008, Juggernaut was ranked 188th on Wizard's list of Top 200 Comic Book Characters. In 2009, Juggernaut was ranked 19th on IGN's list of Top 100 Comic Book Villains.

Powers and Abilities

When Cain Marko found the Gem of the mystical entity Cyttorak, he was empowered with magical energies and transformed into an immortal avatar for the entity in question. As the Juggernaut, Marko possesses superhuman strength, being capable of shattering mountains, lifting and using buildings as weapons, and extreme durability.

His durability is amplified by a mystical force field that grants him additional invulnerability to any physical attack (at its maximum). Even when the force field was temporarily absorbed by Thor's hammer, the Juggernaut's natural durability still proved to be great enough to withstand blows from Thor. The Juggernaut is described as physically unstoppable once in motion, does not tire from physical activity and is able to survive without food, water, or oxygen.

It is possible for an opponent with sufficient physical or mystical strength of their own to turn the Juggernaut's unstoppable movement against him, by redirecting his motion so he gets stranded in a position in which he has no escape; both the Hulk and his son, Skaar, have managed this feat physically, and Thor has managed this feat mystically with Mjolnir. The only character to have stopped Juggernaut while he was in motion as an act of pure physical strength was the Hulk while he was War, a horseman of Apocalypse.

The character is vulnerable to mental attacks, a weakness that has been exploited via the removal of his helmet. The Juggernaut has circumvented this weakness on occasion by wearing a metal skullcap inside his main helmet. If Juggernaut loses his helmet he can magically recreate it from available raw materials (as long as he possesses the full power of the gem)..

In Other Media - Film  (Juggernaut)

  • In X-Men: The Last Stand, Juggernaut (played by Vinnie Jones) serves as one of Magneto's Brotherhood Alliance army. In this version, he is a mutant with no explicit connection to Charles Xavier, his mutation granting him the inability to be halted once he starts running, and superhuman strength sufficient to fight Wolverine to a standstill. During the battle on Alcatraz Island, Magneto orders him to destroy the cure, but is foiled by Kitty Pryde and knocks himself out when he attempts to run through a wall while in the presence of the power-negating Leech. Vinnie Jones has said he would like to reprise Juggernaut in a spin-off, as he felt there was too little time in X-Men: The Last Stand to imbue the character with depth.

  • Although Cain Marko himself doesn't appear in the film, two characters directly related to him are briefly featured in X-Men: First Class. In the opening sequences of the film, Mystique appears impersonating Cain's stepmother Sharon, while the real appears in a photograph. Additionally, later in the film, Charles Xavier mentions Cain's father Kurt, when he states "my stepfather took the threat of nuclear war seriously", to justify to Alex Summers the existence of a bunker under the mansion of the Xavier family.
