Renowned for its diverse cast of characters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is famed for showcasing powerful entities engaged in iconic and unforgettable clashes on screen. The demise of Thanos due to Iron Man’s actions has resulted in the removal of two monumental Marvel figures from the MCU narrative. But some extremely powerful characters like Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch sometimes affect the storyline.
Within the MCU, a multitude of characters retains their awe-inspiring prowess. In a continuous effort to maintain novelty and intrigue, the roster of formidable individuals is consistently expanding.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Wanda emerges as a formidable adversary for the Avengers. Employing her mental manipulation powers, she poses a considerable threat to the heroes, though Hawkeye remains unaffected. With her telekinetic prowess, she decimates Ultron’s minions effortlessly. Subsequently, she manages to shatter the Mind Stone within Vision’s forehead and comes close to single-handedly overpowering Thanos.
In WandaVision, Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) profound sorrow leads her to reshape reality, resulting in significant consequences. Discovering the Darkhold and embracing her role as the Scarlet Witch, her potential as a nexus being is undeniable. While her powers initially stem from the Mind Stone, her destiny as the Scarlet Witch was inevitably foreseen. As she awakens to her true identity, her strength is poised to escalate even further.
Much like Wanda, Carol Danvers draws her powers from an Infinity Stone. A chance encounter with the Space Stone, concealed within the Tesseract, transforms Carol into the formidable cosmic force she embodies. With capabilities including flight, interstellar travel, energy manipulation, and enhanced strength, Carol possesses a diverse array of skills. When she taps into her Binary form, her already impressive power level escalates even further.
During the events of Avengers: Endgame, she decimates Thanos’ invading vessel, engaging in direct combat with the formidable Mad Titan. Notably, she withstands a blow from Thanos while he wields the Infinity Gauntlet. Her tenacity prevents him from employing his most devastating weapon, creating a crucial window for Tony Stark to deliver the decisive blow that ultimately defeats him.
G’iah’s (Emilia Clarke) genetic makeup has evolved to incorporate DNA from over 23 individuals, encompassing characters like Ghost, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Captain America, Thanos, the Black Order, and Drax.
As a result, G’iah has gained an array of remarkable powers, such as harnessing potent quantum energy, achieving atomic-level phasing, unleashing cosmic bursts, exhibiting superhuman strength, taking flight, and even influencing emotions.
With his command over the Time Stone, Dr. Strange has proven to be a formidable adversary. Despite the destruction of the Time Stone, his potency remains unchanged. Marvel’s What If… introduces a variant of Dr. Strange, Dr. Strange Supreme, who absorbs numerous mystical entities to amass sufficient power for the resurrection of his beloved. Although it takes centuries, the consequence of his actions culminates in the complete annihilation of his universe.
Within the primary MCU narrative, he exhibits the ability to perform a spell that erases Spider-Man’s identity from collective memory. As Spider-Man: No Way Home remains unreleased, fans remain uncertain about the specifics, yet this display of power is formidable, positioning Doctor Strange’s magic as nearly boundless, akin to Scarlet Witch’s prowess.
Kang The Conquerer
The mastermind behind the intricate events in Loki, He Who Remains, establishes the Time Variance Authority to avert a multiverse war. While theories suggest he might be Kang the Conqueror, this remains uncertain. He possesses knowledge of all past and future occurrences, at least within his designated “Sacred Timeline.” Foreseeing Sylvie’s actions, he effortlessly evades her.
Yet, upon allowing her to end his life, a far more ominous iteration of him emerges. In the season finale, Variant Loki confronts a reality under the rule of He Who Remains. If the original’s assertions hold true, he could prove nearly invincible.
Upon his debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Vision emerges as a standout Avenger, swiftly incapacitating Ultron from the internet and delivering the final blow to the villain. However, he diminishes in Avengers: Infinity War, succumbing to injury and death.
In WandaVision, Vision (Paul Bettany) returns through SWORD’s experiment, powered by Wanda’s chaos magic, as White Vision. Programmed to eliminate Wanda and Hex Vision, he momentarily overpowers his counterpart but departs after regaining memories. Fans await the impact of this potent iteration.
