The MCU brings a lot of powerful heroes to the forefront. However, it’s hard to tell who’s truly the strongest. Here are 14 of the strongest superheroes in the MCU.
While Dr. Stephen Strange was one of the greatest neurosurgeons of the world, an accident ruined his hands and he went off to search for the Ancient One to help him restore his hands. In the midst of this, he saw the type of power the Ancient One wielded. He eventually was able to learn magic and become quite the tough guy himself. He remains the top sorcerer within the Marvel Universe.
After Carol Danvers bathed in the radiation of the Tesseract (having the Space Stone at its core), she gained extraordinary powers. In fact, she became godlike after a chip burned out in her neck. She’s nearly invincible and has a multitude of powers ranging from flight, aging very slowly, and firing powerful energy blasts. In fact, Thanos wouldn’t be able to lay a hand on her if he wasn’t in possession of the Power Stone. Captain Marvel is certainly a powerful one.
Wanda Maximoff was a test subject for Loki’s scepter. The combination of the scepter and the Mind Stone actually gave her both physical and mental manipulation. Maximoff could mess with other’s minds, which clearly happened with both Iron Man and the Hulk. She was able to go up against Thanos at full power.
Not only is he God of Thunder, but he has 1500 years of battle experience. His years on the frontlines already gives him an advantage over many adversaries. His lightning power also enhances all of his abilities.
Powerful is an understatement. Even though he’s incredibly strong as is, his rage takes it to the top. He’s battled against some crazy foes from Surtur and Thanos. He could even undo Thanos’ snap and survive. Talk about strength and resilience.
At one point, she was the Earth’s supreme sorcerer. In fact, she guided Dr. Strange into becoming the power that he is today. She’s able to create weapons and force fields from her hands.
The lanky, 90-pound weakling enlisted in the army. However, he became one of the strongest humans alive after he was able to absorb the super serum. Everything from his strength, speed, stamina, and reaction time were all enhanced. Even against Thanos, he could at least put up a fight. You can see it after he gets knocked down and says, “I can do this all day.”
Tony Stark started out as a vicious arms dealer, but after getting caught up in some things, he decided to take a more humanitarian approach. He created a very powerful suit of armor that enabled him to do some great things. Not to mention, his genius-level intellect helped him and the Avengers discover the secrets to time travel, which was the catalyst to defeating Thanos.
T’Challa, the king of Wakanda, has a combination of powers as well as technology to hold down the fort. His traditions passed down through centuries. He consumes a heart-shaped herb that enhances his strength, speed, and stamina just like Captain America’s super serum. On top of his vibranium suit, he’s great with hand-to-hand combat.
He was originally supposed to be an upgraded suit of Ultron. However, his enhancements from Thor’s lightning and the combined intelligence of JARVIS, Ultron, and the Mind Stone made him a new, separate being. The Mind Stone allows him to fire off powerful energy blasts and he has the ability to phase through matter and fly.
Spidey was just your average genius. After getting bit by a radioactive spider, his abilities flourished. He has increased stamina, strength, agility, and a “Spidey Sense” that allows him to detect danger right in the nick of time.
She’s known as the deadliest woman in the galaxy. She was spared by Thanos and became his adopted daughter for a period of time (before she turned against him). Not to mention, she has unique knowledge about Thanos that was an aid to help defeat him.
Falcon has great military training and an expert in advanced flight technology. He uses a pair of advanced wings and a jetpack to perform his aerial acrobatics. What a lot of people don’t know about his comic book ability is that he has bird telepathy. This can actually be a good thing on the battlefield because he can see their memories and through their eyes for oncoming danger.
She’s the younger sister of T’Challa, and has a genius intellect that many people think exceeds Tony Stark. Simply put: she’s the brains behind Wakandan technology.
