The Most Powerful Members Of The MCU’s Avengers

Although originally a fairly small group, the Avengers have since grown to include a wide range of heroes of vastly different power levels. Some of these mighty Avengers have been with the party since its inception, but others have been introduced more recently and have played crucial roles in defeating some of the party’s most dangerous foes.

Power in the MCU certainly comes from the brawn, but also from the brain, and most importantly, from actual battlefield experience. From Tony Stark’s wits to Captain Marvel’s sheer cosmic might, here are the 10 most powerful members of the MCU’s version of the Avengers.

Groot may just be a tree, but it’s a pretty powerful tree. As we’ve seen throughout his appearances in the MCU, Groot can grow his limbs and break them, and using this ability he can create both defensive shields and highly effective weapons.

Without Groot, Stormbreaker wouldn’t exist and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy would all be dead. While we have an idea of ​​what Groot can do, it looks like there’s still more power to be harnessed within him that could earn him an even higher spot on this list.

Ant-Man is objectively a superhero, but it’s the quantum technology his suit is based on that ultimately allows the Avengers to unlock time travel. His ability to enter the Quantum Realm, coupled with the ultra-strength he gains from becoming very small, makes him a surprisingly powerful Avenger.

This is all true before we even get into the fact that he’s also capable of becoming a literal giant. Giant Man certainly has weaknesses, but if you were building an army of superheroes, you would almost certainly want Ant-Man on your team.

Black Panther

Black Panther is a lot like Captain America but with better technology, a badass royal family, and a country that’s the most technologically advanced in the MCU continuity. On his own, T’Challa is a powerful warrior with increased speed and strength. With the help of his sister Shuri, however, he becomes even stronger than that.

His costume allows him to absorb the energy of the blows he is attacked and then bounce them off his opponents. Thanks to this ability and the fact that his costume is basically impregnable, Black Panther is a tougher opponent than he seems if you just look at his power set.

If Vision had really taken advantage of all his power, he could have ended up higher. As it stands, Vision has an Infinity Stone on his forehead and has access to all of human knowledge, and still manages to get damaged by one of Thanos’ henchmen.

At other times, however, Vision’s powers have been essential. It was Vision who ultimately defeated Ultron, and we also know he’s one of the few characters in history who can wield Thor’s hammer. He may not be as strong as he should be, but he’s not a weakling either.

Besides being basically unkillable, the Hulk is also very strong, and when Bruce Banner is able to control him, he’s also very smart. This combination makes the Hulk an essential member of the Avengers, even though he spends much of the early films flying around and doing at least as much harm as good.

He may not be able to defeat Thanos, but against most other opponents Hulk is more than enough to ultimately emerge victorious.

Tony Stark figured out time travel, and that certainly counts for something. Besides being one of the most brilliant minds on the planet, Iron Man also benefits from the type of technology that allows him to fight against much more powerful opponents.

It doesn’t beat Thanos, but it comes shockingly close for a mere mortal in fancy armor. Iron Man is just an ordinary, super-smart guy who regularly faces intergalactic threats. Fortunately, that massive intellect is often enough to level the playing field.

Even after losing the Time Stone, Doctor Strange is still extremely powerful. His skills as a wizard make him a tough opponent, which is why the villains he faces are so often an order of magnitude stronger than anyone else.

Thanos is perhaps the biggest evil he’s faced, and while he couldn’t defeat him outright, he did come close, even after Thanos was already wielding four of the six stones.

Boasting the powers and long life of a god, Thor was arguably the most powerful member of the initial version of the Avengers. Not only can he fly and move between worlds, he was also the only one capable of defeating Thanos, even after assembling all six Infinity Stones.

Thor’s power only grows, and while he often needs a weapon to channel it, that’s certainly not always the case. Armed or unarmed, Thor is a force to be reckoned with, and his arrival is more than enough to turn the tide of virtually any battle.

Captain Marvel powers up in Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel’s immense power makes her difficult to reckon with, which is one of the reasons her appearances in the MCU have been so limited to date. Unlike Scarlet Witch and some of the other heroes on this list, Carol Danvers managed to hatch her powers in her first film and has since spent most of her time off-world helping other planets. When she shows up at the big fights, however, she’s a game-changer. She doesn’t get the chance, but it looks like she could possibly beat Thanos, and her arrival at End of Game basically turns the tide of this fight.

Scarlet Witch lights up in WandaVision.

At the end of Multiverse of Madness, Wanda is so powerful that she’s basically the only one capable of destroying herself. Wanda’s powers only grow and grow during her time in the MCU. She is able to take over and brainwash an entire town, or take on an entire army of wizards without too much trouble.

Even before Wanda turned evil, however, she was one of the only heroes to hold a candle to Thanos’ power, so much so that Thanos had to call in a distraction to save himself from her.
