MCU has evolved a lot in the last few years. It started with Iron Man in 2008 and the franchise is known for contributing to the cinematic debut of characters that we have known and seen only in the comics. This is one reason why it has earned billions at the box office.
While the conflict between superheroes and supervillains is a routine thing in the MCU films, every character has their strong and weak side. But talking about the superheroes, we can still classify them in the list of the strong and weak. So, let’s check the strongest superheroes in the MCU so far.
10 Strongest Superheroes In The MCU
1. Wanda Maximoff
Introduced in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in 2015, Wanda Maximoff continued to improvise in terms of her powers. She was an Avenger but Vision’s death affected her to such an extent that she had to create an imaginary world of her own where she could live peacefully with him and their kids. Moreover, the character’s dark side was also explored in ‘Doctor Strange’ in the Multiverse of Madness.
2. Captain Marvel
Carol Danvers’ character is yet to be explored and this is expected to happen in the upcoming sequel to ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘The Marvels.’ She can travel between planets and the solar system and can wield a lot of cosmic energy. Carol can fire photon blasts to defeat her enemies.
3. Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange is introduced as a character who tries to find a cure for himself after his hands are injured in a car accident. While he trains himself as a master of the mystic arts, he is also the protector of the Time Stone. But he is powerful even without the stone and was expected to take Tony Stark’s position once in Peter Parker’s life.
Thor was one of those characters who contributed at the beginning of the MCU. He wields the Mjolnir and Stormbreaker and has a lot of energy, strength, and stamina. He can use lightning to finish off his enemies. While the character last appeared in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ which was reported to be the last Thor film, audiences are still expecting him to return sometime in the future.
Hulk is a character who is still waiting for a proper debut in the MCU. While ‘The Incredible Hulk’ was not successful in terms of box office collections, audiences are waiting to witness Mark Ruffalo appearing in a standalone film. He is so strong that he could fight the Chitauri during Loki’s invasion of New York and his anger also works as an alternate power for him.
Spider-Man is a character who made his cinematic debut a long time ago. While he has been shown as a superhero who can crawl walls and throw webs, the character’s debut in the MCU enhanced his powers as Stark technology was added to them. His suit now features the best of the best facilities which can be commonly found in Tony Stark’s possession.
7. Black Panther
Black Panther made his debut in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ in 2016 and the character continued to make appearances until ‘Avengers: Endgame’ in 2019. Audiences witnessed King T’Challa defeating Killmonger in Black Panther despite that the latter defeated him at first. He was also a victim of the Blip but was revived in Endgame, confronting Thanos and his army for one last time.
Valkyrie made her debut in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ and she has served Asgard’s valkyries on multiple occasions but they were murdered by Hela. She teamed up with Thor to escape Sakaar with Bruce Banner and fought Hela until Surtur destroyed Asgard. Valkyrie can fight her enemies with swords, spears, and bare fists.
Shang-Chi is the latest superhero on the list who made his MCU debut in 2021. He was pressured by his father Xu Wenwu to become an assassin. Although he stayed away from his father for a long time, the duo confronted each other in another world, where Shang-Chi managed to defeat him. The character now has the Ten Rings with himself.
Scott Lang was a criminal but after getting the suit of Hank Pym, he becomes an ant-themed superhero. Scott can expand to full size as per his wish and up to the size of a tower. He can also shrink or expand objects with thrown discs while fighting his enemies.
