The truly massive Juggernaut has been impressively brought to life by a dedicated fan and cosplayer who specializes in oversized builds with exacting attention to detail.
The cosplayer put together an exceptionally accurate costume depicting Cain Marko, the unstoppable Juggernaut, and shared a video of him walking through an outdoor convention. The build is comics-accurate, with Marko's oversized arms, fists, legs and feet all clad in his signature orange-red costume and topped by the dome-like helmet that protects the iconic villain against his one true weakness: telepathic attacks. The costume even stands up to being in motion as the cosplayer strides along a path among tents and other attendees.
Despite being a stepbrother to X-Men founder Charles Xavier/Professor X, Marko is not a mutant. He's a normal human who came into possession of the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, a nigh-omnipotent being who imbues the holder with unstoppable powers. The Juggernaut not only has massive size, strength and durability; he can also create a mystical force field that grants him further invulnerability. Moreover, he doesn't need food, water, sleep or even air and has an exceptional healing ability.
Due to these impressive gifts, the Juggernaut has been able to go toe-to-toe with some of Marvel's strongest heroes, including against the likes of Thor and the Hulk on more than one occasion. There have been several variations of his armor and powers over the years, but this cosplayer has gone for his most classic look, though it shows many intricate battle scars.
The Juggernaut has also shown up in live-action twice in the past. He was played by Vinnie Jones in X-Men: The Last Stand, where a similar bulky costume was used to mimic the character's size, though his helmet was much smaller. There was also a CGI version in Deadpool 2 (mo-capped by Ryan Reynolds), who got into a fight outside of the X-Mansion with the metal giant Colossus.
Notably, Deadpool 2 originally envisioned a fight between Juggernaut and the Fantastic Four's Thing. In 2019, Deadpool director Tim Miller (who did not helm the sequel) revealed he was given the green light for "'The Thing throwing down with Juggernaut' in the film’s climactic action set-piece."
