Top 10 Marvel Characters Who Are Too Strong For The MCU

Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of  Top 10 Marvel Characters Who Are Too Strong For The MCU. The Marvel comics are FILLED TO THE BRIM with overpowered character, many of which are fascinating heroes and villains who were constructed to be complex individuals in correlation to their abilities. 

So today, we’re taking a look at some of those individuals and taking a guess at which of them will be ruled out by Marvel Studios, with our list of the 10 marvel characters who are too strong for the MCU. Alright, let’s get this top list started.

10. Captain Universe.

Captain Universe was first introduced in Micronauts issue 8. He’s a character who possesses something called the Uni-Power, an extra dimensional force that transforms you into Captain Universe and gives you superhuman strength, speed, stamina, agility, durability, power enhancement and enhanced senses. He can also use energy blasts, fly, is telekinesis, and perhaps, one of his most deadly abilities, time travel. 

There have been many individuals to have hosted the Uni-Power, with 32 individuals on Earth 616 having hosted it at some point over the years from 1979 onwards. It’s also changed it’s name to the Enigma Force these days, too. 

9. The Sentry.

The Sentry is a character many believe will never see the light of day in an MCU film. First and foremost, the character’s abilities are quite similar to those of DC’s Superman, so that might bring about a few legal troubles for Marvel Studios. 

Second, listen to what he’s capable of: superhuman strength, stamina and speed. Regenerative healing factor. Light manipulation. Psionic powers. Flight. Molecular Manipulation (a bit of a theme on this list with that power, to be honest). Energy absorption. Gravity manipulation. Teleportation. Oh, and he’s immortal. No big deal. So imagine what he could do with ALL OF THOSE POWERS. It’s a bit much. 

On top of that, his other half is The Void; a villainous identity that resulted in The Sentry having to put himself in a self induced state of amnesia in order to protect the Marvel Universe from himself turning into it. 

8. Mangog.

Mangog is traditionally a Thor villain, first having appeared in Thor issue 154 back in 1968. He’s described as being the sum total of the hatred of a billion billion beings, who has superhuman strength, stamina, durability, endurance, can shapeshift, is capable of energy projection via magic manipulation, can feed off the hatred of sentient beings and, of course, is immortal. 

The saving grace for our pal Mangog here is that he’s a being who could potentially be adapted in a similar fashion as Surtur was in Thor Ragnarok, but likely wouldn’t be a main villain of Thor’s. But hey, who knows. 

7. Onslaught.

Onslaught first appeared on the panels of Marvel comics in 1996, in X-Men vol 2 issue 53, after Charles Xavier accidentally created him when psionically attacking Magneto. 

Xavier, who attacked Magneto after he ripped the adamantium from Wolverine’s skeleton, caused Magneto to go catatonic, but in the process, the metal manipulator’s anger, grief, and desire for vengeance entered Xavier’s consciousness, growing into a separate persona known as Onslaught; a character who has psychic omnipotence. 

The Avengers and the Fantastic Four, upon learning of a way to finally defeat Onslaught, sacrificed themselves in order to bring an end to the abomination. Luckily, it was later revealed that they were all reborn in a pocket universe, and all was well. The character would later return in a second form, with the powers of Franklin Richards, Nate Grey, Professor X and Magneto combined. 

6. Skaar.

If you thought the Hulk in the comics was way too OP, well, here’s his son! Skaar first introduced in What If Planet Hulk issue 1 back in 2007. He’s the product of Bruce Banner’s Hulk and extraterrestrial Caiera, from whom the character would inherit Old Power from. Old Power allows him to draw energy from the planet itself, which in this case, is Sakaar. 

So imagine a character with the powers of the Hulk (strength, endurance, stamina, and regenerative abilities that all increase the angrier he gets), and an extra bit of power that is essentially a synthesized form of the power cosmic. Yeah, deadly. 

Granted, the way the Hulk has been depicted in the MCU has really defused that issue, so it could be possible that Skaar might still see the light of day on the big screen, but adapted in a way that doesn’t make him the most OP superhero ever. That being said, the chances of us getting a World War Hulk film seem quite unlikely, and bringing Skaar into the fray otherwise might be a little left field. 

5. Korvac.

Michael Korvac, commonly known by just his last name, first appeared in Giant Size Defenders issue 3 back in 1975. Who is he? Well, he’s a fellow with the ability to manipulation energy via a specialized computer module, and can wield the power cosmic. He’s also a master strategist and brilliant computer scientist, to boot. 

Initially, he was created as a throw away character, with his creator Steve Gerber calling him “a vacuum cleaner than a villain”. He would eventually go on to be an antagonist of the Avengers’, in what is called The Korvac Saga in Avengers issue 167 to 177 back in 1978. He killed the Avengers, then resurrected them, and took his own life, feeling defeated that no one else could possibly defeat him. 

4. The Goblin Entity.

The Goblin Entity, otherwise known as the Goblin Force, is kind of similar to the Phoenix force, but significantly worse. It has limitless power, which it derives from a ravenous hunger that can not be sated. It has consumed whole galaxies, and even consumed the Phoenix Force when it came across it. Even Celestials couldn’t fully bring about its demise. 

When consuming others, it gains their powers, so the full extent of its capabilities is unknown. It can consume and remove a near infinite amount of molecules per second, it’s the nexus of all psionic energy, it’s capable of sorcery and shadow morphing, of cosmic manipulation, and can alter time and space itself. 

It also can transmigrate throughout time and space by folding its energy back into itself, causing it to collapse like a black hole. It exists on Earth 1298, also known as the Mutant X-verse, and manages to possess the life force of Marvel Girl Madelyne Pryor, and later, the comatose body of the Beyonder. 

It would go on to kill most of Earth’s heroes, including the X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom and Namor, and was only stopped by Havoc, who had the Nexus of all Realities within him, using it to separate the force from Madelyne and defeat it. 

3. Molecule Man.

After being bombarded by an unknown form of radiation from an experimental particle generator that he accidentally activated, Molecule Man, aka Owen Reece, became one of the most powerful individuals in the Marvel universe. His powers consist of the ability to warp reality and molecular manipulation. He can control all matter, and all energy. 

When the Watcher alerted the Fantastic Four that he may be a threat, the group took him on, eventually tricking him, with the Watcher placing him in confinement in an other dimensional world. Initially, he was hindered by self doubt and insecurities, subduing his power and restricting him to only being able to manipulate inorganic matter. 

But over time that changed, and he began being able to manipulate the likes of Mjolnir, and the Silver Surfer’s surfboard. These days, he’s more of a good guy, thankfully, but that doesn’t mean that some of the universe’s most powerful entities aren’t still a little scared by him. 

Both Galactus and the Beyonder have made it clear that they could be threated by Reece, with Galactus even saying that the character could destroy him with merely a thought. 

2. Oblivion.

It’s often debated whether or not Oblivion is the strongest character to ever exist in the Marvel universe. It’s a cosmic abstract entity, who represents non existence, and is a counter force to the universe expanding. It’s another aspect of the entity Death, but don’t get them confused. Death is like a sibling to Oblivion, along with Infinity and Eternity. It’s omnipotent, and represents the inevitable ending of all things. 

It can manifest wherever, whenever, and can empower others with however much power he desires in order to act in his name. His strength level is near infinite, and he has infinite cosmic powers. 

He hasn’t really messed around with Earth’s heroes all that much, minus a few instances like when he sought out his daughter Mirage, or when his agents fought against the Great Lake Avengers, so it doesn’t seem like Oblivion really has a reason to be adapted into the MCU any time soon. 

Perhaps it may even be best if abstract entities like himself, Infinity and Eternity are left on the panels; Death wasn’t even adapted in Avengers Infinity War, despite playing a crucial role in Thanos’ story line in the Infinity Gauntlet comic, which much of it is based off of. 

1. One Above All.

The One Above All has a very self explanatory name. Literally, they are the one who is the most powerful of the multiverse, above all other entities. The Living Tribunal is under them, although the two are said to be in perfect alignment with one another. First appearing in Fantastic Four issue 511 back in 2004, and is stated to be the supreme being within the Multiverse. 

It is omnipotent, and above all other cosmic powers and abstract entities. The One Above All is an entity that has rarely been seen in the comic, or explored as much as entities like The Living Tribunal have. 

But it’s still a significant presence, and while the Living Tribunal may be getting an MCU adaptation if fan theories are correct, it’s hard to imagine why the One Above All would be necessary in that cinematic universe, considering they’re at the very top of the food chain in terms of power and ability. Kinda makes sense why the One Above All hasn’t had a whole lot of comic appearances now, doesn’t it?

What other powerful characters from the Marvel Multiverse can you think of that could’ve fit this list?
