7 Most Powerful MCU Characters

Team FC

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)

While Captain Marvel gave audiences a glimpse of Danvers' power, Avengers: Endgame (2019) showed why she hadn't been involved as a character in previous films: she would have defeated the enemy very quickly. Danvers gained her powers after being exposed to the raw energy of the Tesseract.

Thor Odinson

The God of Thunder has always been known to be one of the strongest characters in the MCU. His Asgardian physiology alone grants him abilities beyond those of any super soldier, let alone regular humans. His godly power makes him a formidable ally to Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

The Incredible Hulk (Bruce Banner)

If there were fewer restrictive behaviors and peculiarities of spirit forced on to him, Hulk could be so much more than the wild card he is. As it stands though, he still possesses ungodly strength and, as far as we have witnessed, an inability to die.


In Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), he gets a peek at Eternity, a force so powerful that it is capable of granting any wish regardless of what it might be. Thankfully, Eternity is so all-powerful that it doesn’t seem to have much time to worry about the affairs of the mortals.

The Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff)

Wanda's ability to manipulate probability and cast spells without incantation makes her a formidable adversary, and with her ability to change the future and alter the timestream and obtaining the Darkhold,  the Scarlet Witch is by far the strongest and most terrifying superhero-turned-villain of all.


Thanos at full power, armed with his completed Infinity Gauntlet, was long regarded as the most powerful MCU character. However, even without the stones, Thanos was an immensely powerful force, thanks to his incredible physical strength and the vast supply of resources he had amassed over the course of his conquest.

Arishem the Judge

One of the Celestials, Arishem the Judge is a being of such immense power that humans can only vaguely grasp what he’s actually capable of. Arishem is so powerful that he created the Eternals, a race of beings that, in and of themselves, are also incredibly powerful.
