When we think of Marvel superheroes, we instantly think of characters with super abilities but what we do not think of are mortal human characters who use their minds to use and create a combat weapon that assists them on the battlefield. Lack of superhuman ability does not affect their level of determination.
They found their way of contributing to the battle. These ordinary human characters spent hours creating their perfect combat weapon and spent hours training, practicing effective combat moves. They have to be a hundred percent sure of their creations as they battle against the greatest supervillains. Here we have narrowed down the top 10 Marvel characters who exhibit no super abilities.
1) Nick Fury
Nick Fury, a world-renowned spy, former Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and founder of the Avengers. He is not a usual superhero, he does not have a special nickname or a special costume that represents him. He prefers to have his work classified and hidden from the common public. His intelligence, strategies, and planning are remarkable.
The question of Falcon’s powers varies depending on the available material. In the comics, he could communicate with his bird friend Redwing, but in the MCU, his power comes from the suit he wears. In MCU, he proved himself as a hardworking, dedicated character. The ending of Avengers: Endgame indicates, with Captain America’s shield, Falcon will return with an updated suit.

4) War Machine
James Rhodes aka War Machine got very limited screentime but even in these limited scenes, he proved himself as a loyal companion to Tony Stark and as a fearless soldier. He controls his War Machine suit created by Tony Stark which is a very useful weapon in combats. His way of controlling the suit responsibly makes him a strong superhero.
5) The Punisher
Calling the Punisher (Frank Castle) a superhero would be quite unusual as he does not possess any inhumane super abilities, but his character has a deep and miserable past which makes his story of revenge an entertainer. He has his own way of dealing with criminals which are twisted. He has appeared alongside greatest superheroes in comics.
6) Ant-Man And The Wasp
These two characters have powers in the comics but not in MCU, as of now. Both of them use suits created by Hank Pym. Their suits allow them to show an extraordinary ability to shrink. Both of them are ordinary human beings who mastered precise combat moves to combine it with their suit. Their combination works better and they both fit well together.
Clint Barton aka Hawkeye is one of the most recognizable face in the Marvel universe. He was introduced in the first Avengers and is loved by fans all over the world. He is an experienced superhero and is known for using a bow and arrow as his primary weapon. He carries himself flawlessly on a battlefield and does not let his lack of superhero ability look less among other superheroes.

10) Moon Knight
Moon Knight is a character that not many people know about which makes him highly underrated.
