Marvel’s Avengers were formed by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) of S.H.I.E.L.D., a dysfunctional gang of large personalities with even huge talents who spend as much time squabbling as they do working together to rescue the universe. They only band together in the face of great challenges, such as an extraterrestrial invasion, since their daily lives are filled with so much comic book-level drama that they require their own movies.
Ability: A synthetic vibranium body gave Vision the ability to walk through walls and soar. Bruce Banner, Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence (JARVIS), and the Mind Stone were all part of his’mind’
Intensity: 7. He should theoretically be one of the strongest Avengers because of the Mind Stone buried in his forehead. Though Vision never used the stone’s full potential, this might be because he was aware of the devastation and horror that could result. It was clear from his admission that he didn’t comprehend the stone and that it had more of an effect on him than on him on the stone.
He was also considered to be the most intelligent and righteous Avenger. “Age of Ultron” even saw him wielding Thor’s hammer. But when it came to actual battles, he didn’t do too well. Wanda’s support was his last sliver of a chance at surviving “Infinity War.” The synthetic stomach was no match for a single stab, and he was out cold! Even when Thanos crushed him, Vision didn’t even try to fight back.
After the events of “WandaVision,” it’s uncertain if Vision will reconstruct his body or if his rebuilt body will have the same power as before. Getting his memories back will allow us to examine how he deals with the “directives” he was given.
Ability: A gamma radiation burst and Bruce’s version of the super-soldier serum created Bruce’s alter ego, the Hulk. It’s his incredible, unwavering strength that gives him the upper hand. Bruce is also a genius, and Hulk is practically indestructible.
Intensity level: 7. However, the Hulk has always been regarded as the Avengers’ most physically powerful member, and with good cause. Following his defeat in “Infinity War,” we haven’t seen him in action again.
After Bruce merged his thoughts with Hulk’s body, he seemed to have lost all desire in battling. There is still a lot of power in the Hulk body, but Bruce has lost the fury of the Hulk and it appears like he will only have one functioning arm after “Endgame.”
#8. Black Panther
Ability: After consuming the Heart-Shaped Herb, the current holder of the Black Panther mantle in Wakanda, King T’Challa, has enhanced powers. With superhuman stamina, speed and power he can take on any challenge.
T’Challa is a skilled martial artist and strategist, as well as a ruthless warrior. He wears a highly indestructible vibranium suit that can absorb kinetic energy, like as blasts or punches, and repurpose it for a counterattack.
Intensity level: 7.5. Black Panther’s heightened powers and strength are comparable to Captain America’s super-soldier serum. Unlike many of our other heroes, he has an elegant and acrobatic combat style that sets him distinct. With or without his armor, he was nearly as good as the Winter Soldier in hand-to-hand fighting in Civil War. He’s practically invulnerable thanks to his energy-absorbing armor, which he debuted in “Black Panther.”
Abilities: After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter Parker was given the proportional strength of a spider, making him a far more powerful and agile man than the typical person. This gives him an edge in combat because of his keen senses and uncanny ability to avoid and counterattack an assault. In addition, he has the ability to shoot webs out of his hands and scale walls.
Peter Parker, on the other hand, is significantly more intellectual than most teenagers. Indeed, he is a master. His own web-shooting devices are built by him, and he has the ability to learn and replicate Stark technology.
Intensity level: 8. Spider-Man easily overcame Falcon and Winter Soldier in his first serious combat in “Civil War.” He was even able to compete with the likes of Captain America (though Cap was clearly holding back).
Although he’s young and inexperienced, it’s true. “Infinity War,” he was easily knocked down and even detained by Star-Lord, somehow. However, in “Endgame,” things began to change. This film provides conclusive evidence that he has finally found his identity and his true abilities as Spider-Man. This means that Spider-Man has officially joined the ranks of the Avenger.
#6. Doctor Strange
Abilities: When it comes to his abilities, Doctor Strange is a sorcerer who swears to protect the very fabric of reality. He is able to bend space and time because of his extensive magic, which he obtains through channeling energy from alternate realms in the Multiverse. After using the Time Stone for so long, he no longer has the ability to rewind events or glimpse what could happen in the future.
Intensity scale: 9. Strange is at a disadvantage because he must move his arms and hands to activate his powers, which is how Ebony Maw captured him in “Infinity War.” We can’t blame Strange for the Avengers’ defeat at the hands of Thanos since he foresaw the outcome and knew the Avengers would have to lose first in order to prevail. Without him, Tony and the Guardians couldn’t have fought back, therefore we don’t know how Strange would have fared in the fight if he hadn’t foreseen his own death in beforehand.
Since Thanos was defeated in “Endgame,” Strange was largely absent during the final showdown. The fact that he can transport entire armies from all around the galaxy is a major benefit, though.
It’s not apparent how much of an impact the physical Time Stone will have on Strange’s abilities. But, well, he’s still got some serious sway over people.
Strange, according to the Ancient One, is “destined to be the best among us,” and other Masters have agreed.
#5. Iron Man
Abilities: All Tony Stark’s abilities sprang from his genius-level intellect. In a cave in Afghanistan, he developed the original Iron Man costume while being held hostage by a terrorist organization. After that, he continued to rebuild and refine his Iron Man technology, eventually utilizing nanotechnology to construct a suit that was incredibly durable and equipped with devastating weaponry.
Intensity scale: 9.5. When Thor came close to killing Thanos, Iron Man was the only Avenger who could hurt him, and he did it after the Mad Titan had already amassed four Infinity Stones. Because of his frightening reputation, Iron Man was the only person Thanos recognized by name.
To further cement and expand on this legacy, “Endgame” was released in 2015. It appeared impossible for a normal human body to handle the strength of all six Infinity Stones, yet Iron Man was able to outwit Thanos in the most crucial time and momentarily wield the power of all six.
#4. Captain America
Abilities: Steve Rogers was chosen for Project Rebirth and given the super-soldier serum after serving in World War II. Rogers became fitter, stronger, and more resilient than any other person because of it. His senses are sharper, and he heals himself at a breakneck pace.
Vibranium is Captain America’s shield material of choice, but he’s shown us he can handle any weapon he touches, including Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Thor claims that no one else has ever been able to carry it since anybody else’s body and mind would have collapsed if they tried.
Scale of power: 10. In “Civil War,” Captain America was in a position to murder Iron Man, which pushes him to the top of the list. He has beaten more powerful opponents time and time again, proving that he is unstoppable when it comes to close-quarters battle (barring an opponent with otherworldly powers).
With his iconic slogan, we know that he is an important member of the Avengers. For as long as I’ve known him, he’s never given up.
#3. Captain Marvel
Abilities: Carol Danvers, despite her human birth, was able to absorb the Tesseract’s power and utilize it to access the Space Stone. She possessed incredible physical prowess, speed, and agility, and she could fly. Her fists are capable to producing highly strong photon blasters.
Additionally, the Kree soldier Yon-Rogg administered blood transfusions to her, transforming her into a Kree-human hybrid. The Kree are inherently more robust and long-lasting than humans. Captain Marvel’s training in warfare comes from her experience in the Kree Starforce.
The power scale: 50. In the words of Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, “Captain Marvel is as strong as we’ve ever placed in a movie.” Feige said. “Her abilities are out of this world, and she’ll be the strongest character we’ve ever had when she’s presented.”
There is no doubt in my mind that he was correct. Once Captain Marvel realized her actual strength, we watched her punch through a whole starship with ease. Unlike many heroes, she didn’t need training or time to master her powers.
We’ve seen her use the power of the cosmos to her advantage, allowing her to soar across the sky and endure even the most devastating strikes. It took her a single night to go across light years and carry an entire starship, and when Thanos smacked her in the skull, she didn’t flinch.
A little strange that she was knocked unconscious by Thanos’s usage of the Power Stone. She should have been able to recover from it, given what we’ve seen thus far. We’re ready to forgive that minor detail since her reappearance would have spoiled the major moment for Iron Man.
Captain Marvel was by far the most powerful Avenger prior to the events of “WandaVision”.
Abilities: The Asgardian royal family members are as near to gods as you can get without really being one. Only his father and older sister (who are both deceased) are more powerful than Thor. He’s not invincible, but he’s near, given that he withstood the entire power of a star.
It is with an enchanted, faithful weapon like Mjolnir or Stormbreaker created on Nidavellir that Thor is at his most powerful. However, being the God of Thunder, he has the ability to conjure and harness pure lightning as well.
Power level on a scale: 20. Since Thor has such immense strength, filmmakers are always seeking for methods to make him weaker. His hammer was shattered in the film “Ragnarok”. They left him out for much of “Infinity War,” but when they brought him back in with an appropriate weapon, he was only a few seconds away from defeating Thanos. “Endgame” brought him acute drunkenness and melancholy, which hampered his ability to fight successfully.
Most of the conflicts between the Avengers would have ended sooner if Thor had been at his top potential. Indeed, it wasn’t until the events of “Ragnarok” that he came to realize his ultimate power as Thunder God. It’s impossible to determine how powerful he really is, because Marvel is continually throwing barriers in his way—and even with those, he’s easily the third-strongest hero we’ve seen.
#1. Scarlet Witch
Abilities: Wanda and her brother Maximoff were willing participants in Hydra research. Scientists gave them the Mind Stone by exposing them to the Scepter, and they gained extraordinary abilities as a result.
Among Wanda’s newfound powers are telekinesis, telepathy, and the ability to manipulate energy.
Force fields may be generated and massive items can be moved by her telepathic powers. If you want, she may also take over your head and influence your ideas by invading the brains of your adversaries.
During WandaVision, we found that Wanda is a born witch with innate magical abilities. Agatha Harkness, a famous old witch, once said that the Mind Stone “amplified what would’ve rotted on the vine otherwise.”
Wanda became known as the Scarlet Witch, an unique individual capable of wielding Chaos Magic on a seemingly endless scale, and even manipulating the world around her.
Scale of power: 100. Only Wanda could take on Thanos one-on-one and come out unscathed—and she did it twice. In “Infinity War,” she held him off with just one hand, but he had already amassed five infinity stones. In “Endgame,” she was on the edge of defeating him and could have done so had he not “rained fire” from his ships on her.
Indeed, Wanda has always been powerful, but “WandaVision” made it plain that her power is genuinely unique. Even if she doesn’t mean to, she can manipulate the world around her to her liking. Without planning or preparation, she conjured three sentient entities, each with their own unique personality and abilities.
Wanda is shocked when Agatha informs her that someone so evil is “supposed to be a myth,” and that she has the power to wipe out the whole human race.
Dr. Strange’s typical MCU magic pales in comparison to Wanda’s. Furthermore, her cosmic prowess was no fluke. After being exposed to an Infinity Stone’s energies, she was mysteriously anointed with its power.
Tony Stark found in “Age of Ultron” that the Mind Stone contains a unique network of neurons; Vision indicates in “Infinity War” that it has awareness, an objective. Wanda claims that a portion of the Mind Stone is residing inside of her body.
We see Scarlet Witch reading Agatha’s Darkhold book at the end of the “WandaVision” finale. As Agatha points out, her problem isn’t power, but rather lack of information; this will make her even more powerful. You never know where her abilities will take her.
