Gravity is not the most powerful force in the universe, it is the weakest. For proof, grab a magnet from your refrigerator and pick up a paper clip. The magnet produces more force on the clip than the gravity of the entire Earth. The strongest force is called simply the "Strong Force" (real creative). It is the force that keeps electrons from crashing into atomic nuclei, as the protons and electrons should attract one another.
