Comic book characters tend to have some bizarre weaknesses. But these Marvel characters surely have some of the strangest ones yet.
Venom – Matchsticks
Venom may seem all-powerful but the symbiote has obvious weaknesses like sound and fire. Spider-Man once beat the guy with nothing but a lit matchstick. Imagine being defeated by a cheap lighter of all things.
Wolverine – His Own Soul
Wolverine is a man who is immune o death. His healing factor makes him a nuisance for his enemies since he is almost un-killable. But he does carry a weapon with him which is touted to be the only thing in the universe that could kill the Wolverine. The Muramasa Blade was made out of Wolverine’s own soul.
Spider-Man: Ethyl Chloride
Spider-Man does have his own version of Superman’s Kryptonite. And it is Ethyl Chloride, the compound injected into patients to ease their pain before surgery. The compound, according to Peter, carries anti-spider venom and it destroys his powers from the inside.
Daredevil – Loud Concerts & Children’s Sleepovers
We are not even kidding here. Matt Murdock has the power akin to echolocation which he uses to create a refined 3D Map of the city. For a guy known as the Man Without Fear, his weaknesses sure are pretty funny. Any event that makes a lot of noise like sleepovers and traffic jams or loud concerts are his kryptonite.
Thanos – Believes Himself Unworthy Of Power
Thanos has had multiple chances where he gained Godlike abilities. He has practically become a God many times. But every time his plans have been foiled. That is because Thanos believes deep down he is unworthy of power and victory. deep down he wants to lose.
Annihilus – Too Much reliance On His Cosmic Control Rod
Annihilus hails from the Negative Zone. He is one of the deadliest foes the Avengers have ever fought. But his greatest weakness lays in his greatest strength. Annihilus’ cosmic control rod gives him all his abilities. Take it away and he is just small fry.
Galactus – Magic
The Devourer of Worlds consumes entire planets for breakfast. And his greatest weakness is a primordial force of the universe that is as old as the entity itself. Galactus has trouble dealing with magic. He was once banished with one magical spell. Even Dormammu once defeated him with a magically enchanted virus.
Rhino – Mobility
The villain known as Rhino comes with insane strength. He is extremely durable and has the punching power of a bulldozer. But he is always bested by people who are more agile and mobile. His suit and powers leave him with very little mobility and there’s an extreme lack of coordination when he fights. So nimble heroes like Spider-Man can easily take him down.
Red Hulk – Anger
The Hulk’s powers derive strength from his rage. The angrier the Hulk gets, the more powerful Banner’s other persona becomes. The red Hulk’s powers work on a similar principle. But there’s a huge catch. While the Hulk has no limit to his rage fueld strength, the Red Hulk has a limit. If he becomes too angry and too powerful, Ross will turn back into his human dform and lose the ability to change into red Hulk for some time.
Absorbing Man – Automatic Absorption
Absorbing Man possesses the power to mimic the properties of any substance in the universe. throw vibranium at him, his body will absorb its properties and become Vivranium. He can even mimic the power of Thor’s Mjolnir and become an entity made entirely of Uru. But he has no control over what item he absorbs. Shoot water at him or throw glass and he becomes that. Easy win.
Gladiator – Insecurity
We are what we believe to be. For Gladiator, that is true in literally every sense of the word. Gladiator’s powers are akin to DC’s Superman. But they are tied down to his confidence. If he is not confident in his abilities, he becomes weaker than an old guy in a stroller.
Dark Elves – Metal
The Dark Elves are an ancient race who hail from a distant corner of the Cosmos. They have access to incredible magic and technology. Even the Asgardians fear them and think twice before crossing paths with them. And their greatest weakness is iron. Not magic imbued iron. Plain normal iron used in swords, shields, and your butter knife.
