Ever had the argument about the most powerful avengers? All Marvel fans go through that discussion at least once in their lives! Here are the most powerful avengers in the MCU, ranked.
1. The Scarlet Witch
The following statement may be the best summary of the Scarlet Witch’s current position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Her status as the most potent member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is unaffected by whether or not she is still an Avenger in light of her criminal appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The only person more dangerous than an all-knowing, multiverse-capable creature like Doctor Strange has nothing to lose, which is what Wanda has become after losing her children’s father and the love of her life.
2. Doctor Strange
Although it may come as a surprise to some that this same Sorcerer Supreme is ranked above both Captain Marvel and Thor, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has already shown how ineffective Thor’s brute strength is when tried to compare to the more magical, mental aspects of Doctor Strange’s skill set whenever the two characters briefly meet up in Thor: Ragnarok. Thor doesn’t participate in combat at all.
Compared to mythical and extraterrestrial beings’ powers, the capacity to contract and expand doesn’t seem all that dangerous. But Scott Lang’s case gets more compelling when considering the quantum powers of the Ant-Man suit.
4. Captain Marvel
To avoid interfering with the stories of the previous two films, Captain Marvel’s origin narrative was purposely timed between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame due to her tremendous strength. Given that she was a part of the team that faced up against Thanos on Titan, they could have been able to defeat him despite Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) narrow-minded antics, as evidenced by Captain Marvel’s near-dominance of a fully-loaded, Infinity Gauntlet-wielding Thanos.
Chris Hemsworth’s portrayal of the God of Thunder, who had only recently begun to realise his full potential in Thor: Ragnarok, went on to solidify his place as one of the most potent Avengers when he was introduced as the ultimate game-changer in the pivotal Avengers: Infinity War battle, a game-changer that *would’ve* killed Thanos had he gone for the head.
