Since the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we’ve enjoyed watching some of Marvel’s most iconic characters on screen. After all, characters such as Thor, Tony Stark, the Hulk, and Captain America are the pillars upon which the Marvel universe is built.
The Marvel Universe is home to a plethora of characters that are not only extremely powerful but also larger than life. However, there are a select few that far surpass the others in every way. Their enormous powers cannot even be quantified, let alone comprehended by human minds.
- The top ten most powerful Marvel characters are all extremely powerful, with reality-altering abilities and enormous strength.
- Franklin Richards, one of the list’s youngest characters, is regarded as one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe due to his reality-warping abilities.
- Eternity, Galactus, and The Living Tribunal are often regarded as three of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe.
- The Hulk, Thor, and Doctor Strange are all extremely powerful characters who have previously been members of the Avengers.
- Scarlet Witch, Jean Grey, and Professor X are all telepathic and telekinetic mutants.
- Thanos, the Mad Titan, is one of the most powerful villains in the Marvel universe and has long been a source of contention for the Avengers and other heroes.
- The Silver Surfer, a Galactus herald, possesses enormous cosmic powers and is widely regarded as one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel world.
- Dormammu, a powerful mystical entity made entirely of mystical energy, possesses mastery over the mystic arts that rivals Doctor Strange’s.
- The Juggernaut, driven by Cyttorak’s Crimson Gem, is an unstoppable force with incredible strength and durability.
- Kang the Conqueror, a time-traveling villain who possesses the ability to freely travel across time, is a constant thorn in the side of the Avengers.
Some are very well-liked, others are very much disliked, and the list continues. In this essay, we will be concentrating on the Marvel characters that possess the most strength. The most potent Marvel characters ever, both good guys and bad guys, will be listed in this article.
1. The One Above All – Toaa
|Aliases||Above-All-Others, God, One Above All, Supreme One, Bald Parrot, etc.|
|Origin||Creator of the Multiverse|
|First Appearance||Fantastic Four #511 (May, 2004)|
Those who have been following Marvel for a significant amount of time must be pretty familiar with the name The One Above All, right? It is said that TOAA is the physical manifestation of the Creator (a reference to the authors Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) and that it is responsible for everything that exists in the Marvel comics universe.
The One That Stands Above All is an entity that, as its name suggests, dominates everything else in the Marvel universe and exercises complete control over it. In the Marvel comics universe, The One Above All is superior to no other entity. Because the authors do not wish to upset the delicate balance that exists within the Marvel universe, the number of times that TOAA appears in the story is relatively low.
|Aliases||Frank, Kosmos, Cosmos (misspelling), Kurami, the Maker, Mr. Beyond, the One from Beyond, etc.|
|First Appearance||Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #1(January, 1984)|
The Beyonder is a member of the powerful ancient race known as the Beyonders and is created from the Cosmic Cube. The multiverse or the universe is nothing more than a speck of dust in the Beyonder’s infinite power. Beyonder is on a level that no one can reach, existing through all of space and time with eternal power.
The Beyonder frequently challenges the Living Tribunal for second place in the Marvel universe because of how similar their abilities are. Everything in the universe, including Death, Thanos, Galactus, superheroes, villains, etc., exists in the Beyonder, which is reality. The Beyonder decides whether to keep anything alive or destroy it.
3. Living Tribunal
|Aliases||Living Trinity, We Who Are|
|Origin||Abstract Entity created by the One-Above-All to watch over the Multiverse|
|First Appearance||Strange Tales #157(March, 1967)(Cameo)Strange Tales #158(April, 1967)(Full)|
This is an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present being that watches over and keeps everything in its proper balance. The Living Tribunal is second only to The One Above All in terms of power and authority over everything in the universe. Justice, vengeance, and necessity are represented by the three faces of the Living Tribunal. It takes place when a multiverse or universe is out of equilibrium or when deciding whether an object should stay in existence.
The Living Tribunal has been defeated twice despite its great power. Both times were initiated by Thanos when he absorbed the power of the universe’s center and both.
4. Ivory Kings
|Aliases||Beyond, Celestial Servitors, God, The Ivory Kings, The Lords of the White Light, Omega, Omegas, Reality Engineers, Sinnu Sarrum, The White Lords from Wild Space|
|Origin||Servitors created by the Celestials|
|First Appearance||Marvel Two-In-One #63(February, 1980)(Mentioned)New Avengers (Vol. 3) #29(January, 2015)(Historically)Fantastic Four #54(June, 1966)(Retroactively as Prester John), etc|
The Beyonder Realm, a location that is not a part of the Marvel multiverse, is where The Ivory Kings, commonly known as The Beyonders, are from. The Cosmic Cube and the Molecule Man, the universe-destroying explosives, were made by them. Because the beings met have not lived, information regarding these Ivory Kings is very enigmatic. Hank Pym found the body of the Living Tribunal and took a photo of the group while unintentionally looking into the whereabouts of the Ivory Kings.
These Ivory Kings have traveled to all realities in order to drop Molecule Man bombs on the multiverse. Along the way, the Ivory Kings team encountered some of the most formidable figures from the Marvel universe, including Celestial, Infinity, Eternity, Lord Chaos, Master Order, and even the Living Tribunal. The Marvel world is in awe of the Ivory Kings’ strength as they capture and kill these entities with their omniscient wisdom.
|Aliases||Adam Quadmon, Ivan, The Living Embodiment of the Universe, etc.|
|Base of Operations||Overspace|
Both Eternity and Infinity are concepts that can be found in the Marvel universe, and they both stand for the significance of life. Due to the fact that they are twins, they possess an almost unfathomable amount of power. Eternity is a length of time, whereas Infinity is a limitless quantity of space. Additionally, they are a representation of need, which is one of the three most powerful forces in the cosmos.
Eternity and Infinity make a rare appearance, and the only time they do so is when the cosmos is under extreme duress, and they must step in to restore equilibrium. The powers of being omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent are what best describe eternity Infinity as a whole. They were ensnared and put to death by a faction of the Ivory Kings known as the Beyonders, despite the fact that their power is virtually unrivaled in scope and scope.
6. Franklin Richards
|Aliases||Avatar, Ego-Spawn, Frankie, Hyperstorm, Kid Franklin, Psi-Lord, Richard Franklin, Squirt, Tattletale|
|Origin||Depowered human mutant who was formerly passing himself off as a mutant after being exposed to his parents’ cosmic rays before birth.|
|First Appearance||Fantastic Four Annual #6(August, 1968)|
Franklin Richards is the child of Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic, and Sue Richards, Invisible Woman, both of the Fantastic Four. The young man is widely regarded as the most powerful Omega Multiverse-level X-Men ever. Franklin Richards’ power is far greater than Jean Gray’s when she transforms into Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff or Dark Phoenix.
At a young age, Franklin Richards was able to create a mini-universe because of his easy ability to change and manipulate reality to an infinite degree. Franklin also possesses psychic abilities that allow him to manipulate energy and atomic structure. The most potent beings in the Marvel universe, the Celestials, were once driven away by energy beams he once fired.
7. Phoenix Force
|Aliases||The Big Bang, Black Angel, Black Queen, Chaos-Bringer, Cosmic Firebird, Dark Phoenix, Devil Bird, etc|
|First Appearance||X-Men #101(July, 1976)|
The Phoenix Force is a legendary being that emerged from the cosmos and is thought to be the protector of the Creator. It is impenetrable, lacks a discernible form, and contains a source of power that has the capacity to either regenerate or obliterate an entire universe. The Phoenix Force was created with the intention of destroying items considered to have no value in the universe.
The Phoenix Force has been prowling the universes for millions of cosmic years, destroying things it believes are not worthy of existence. The first host to be selected by the Phoenix Force was Jean Grey, a young member of the X-Men on Earth. The terrifying destructive power of the Phoenix Force and Jean’s psychic abilities combine to form a powerful Omega-level X-Men in the Marvel universe.
|Aliases||Cyttorak the Destroyer, Lord of Oblivion, Master of the Raging Storm, One True Rage-Father, Cy|
|Origin||Mystic principality; Demon and God|
|First Appearance||Strange Tales #124(June, 1964)(Mentioned)X-Men #12(May, 1965)(Likeness/statue)Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #44(June, 1992)(First Full Appearance)|
Within the Marvel universe resides the most powerful and long-lived magical entity known as Cyttorak. He was previously revered as a god on Earth, yet he was also portrayed as a terrifying demon during that time. He was exiled to the Crimson Cosmos, but it is unknown who or what was responsible for his exile or how it occurred.
Cyttorak possesses such a high level of power that he is able to use his magic to bind a powerful being like Galactus and render him powerless. Cyttorak is the source of power for many powerful wizards from the future, including Dr. Strange, Dormammu, and Zom, whose origins in power can be traced back to Cyttorak. Within the confines of his barrier, Cyttorak’s power is unrivaled, and no entity, not even the Phoenix Force, is capable of vanquishing him here.
9. Mikaboshi – Chaos King
|Aliases||Ama-No-Kagaseo, Amatsu Mikaboshi, “August Star of Heaven”, King Chaos, etc|
|Origin||Cosmic Entity; He was a dark force before the universe existed|
|First Appearance||Ares #2(February, 2006)|
Amatsu Mikaboshi, the Disorder King or Demon Lord, the personification of evil and chaos, is the full name of the being. In the past, Mikaboshi commanded legions of demons to destroy Zeus and all the Olympians, as well as the sacred sites in Greece. Mikaboshi is much stronger than the powerful Asgardian god Odin.
Mikaboshi is an amorphous thing with no discernible form. The terrifying aspect of Mikaboshi is that every time he defeats an adversary, he will take their energy and advance. Mikaboshi controls not only his victims’ bodies but also their souls, turning them into slaves. Mikaboshi vanquished all of the most potent gods in the Marvel universe during the Chaos War event.
|Aliases||Formerly Adam Magus, the Lurky Man, Madness Monster, Him|
|Origin||Evil future version of Adam Warlock (Cosmic Being)|
|First Appearance||Strange Tales #178(November, 1974)|
Adam Warlock’s dark side is represented by Magus, and the character that we are familiar with was developed by scientists. The origin of Magus comes from the two cosmic entities Lord Chaos & Master Order abducted Adam Warlock, brought him to their realm, and forced him to learn how to live in darkness. They send Adam back 5000 years ago to Sirius X and force him to live with that dark philosophy. This drives Adam crazy, and he calls himself Magus.
Magus is comparable to Galactus, but his strength is far superior to his own. Magus can transform into anything from matter, a planet that is more massive than the Sun, or a weapon as large as a planet to blow up another planet.
|Aliases||Killer of Planets|
|Origin||Celestial (Cosmic Being)|
|First Appearance||Eternals #2(May, 1976)|
As the leader of the Celestials, Arishem is responsible for judging which planets or civilizations are worthy of existence. He made decisions based on his own will and the opinions of his Celestial subordinates: Nezzar the Calculator, Jemiah the Analyzer, and Hargen the Measurer.
Arishem is one of the most potent Celestials, dubbed the fate of the planets – the one who decides whether a planet should exist in the galaxy. Arishem is said to have created the first Sun in the MCU. With tremendous strength and a body size far surpassing other gods, Arishem seems to be the most powerful god in the current MCU.
|Aliases||Death Queen, Goddess of Death, Halja, Hel, Hela of the Norns, Helen, Leah of Hel, etc|
|Origin||Deity; alleged Jotun with attributes of an Asgardian|
|First Appearance||Journey into Mystery #102(January, 1964)|
Hela is the strongest in all of Asgard because she is Death, Odin’s daughter, and once his Executioner. Hela helped Odin rule the Nine Realms since ancient times; Hela even possessed Mjolnir, thanks to which she could control the hammer and destroy it with one hand.
She can also manipulate objects with her mind and create powerful weapons from the air. More terrible, with the ability of the God of Death, she can even call the dead back to life to obey orders. Hela single-handedly invaded and controlled all of Asgard shortly after escaping the Underworld. And Thor had to rely on Surtur’s hand to defeat her.
13. Odin Borson
|Aliases||All-Father, Val-Father, the All-God, etc|
|Origin||Asgardian Son of an Aesir and a Frost Giantess; Deity|
|First Appearance||Journey into Mystery #85(August, 1962)|
As the King of Asgard, Odin Borson is a mighty warrior and leader of the people here, but he also possesses invincible power that no one else has. His true power is called Odinforce, which gives him an almost limitless source of magical power.
His power not only was able to take control of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir but also stripped him of all his powers and exiled him to Earth. Odin often wanders around the world, learning and acquiring knowledge, and is willing to pay any price to gain understanding. He once traded one of his eyes for the ability to see the future.
|Aliases||Egyptian DeityWorld’s First BogeymanBoogeyman for EvildoersWeird Crocodile Lady|
|First Appearance||Moon Knight (1 episode)|
In the Marvel universe, Ammit is the guardian of a weapon called the Sword of Bones. However, the MCU has changed this, turning Ammit into a goddess with thoughts and thoughts that are opposite to Khonshu.
When resurrected in Moon Knight, Ammit is a courageous character. Based on the purple color in magic that Arthur used through Ammit’s staff, it can be seen that this goddess is a person who is proficient in a type of dark magic. Unfortunately, Ammit was eventually defeated because he was sealed into Arthur Harrow.
15. Thor Odinson
|Aliases||Thor: God of Thunder, Mighty Thor, Thor: Son of Asgard, Astonishing Thor, etc|
|Origin||Asgardian son of Odin and Gaea|
|First Appearance||Venus #11(July, 1950)(Golden-Age)Journey into Mystery #83(June, 1962)(Silver-Age)|
Thor Odinson is often presented as one of the strongest Asgardians and one of the strongest Avengers. Thor’s strengths include controlling thunder in battle and turning thunder into a weapon when needed.
The peak of his power was in Infinity War when using Stormbreaker. After that, his powers are significantly reduced in Endgame, probably because Thor hasn’t fought for a long time due to depression. Of course, the chubby body also affects Thor’s fighting ability. And coming Thor: Love and Thunder will probably present a version of the thunder god with the most incredible power the audience has ever had access to.
|Aliases||Bertrand Crawley, Jean-Paul Duchamp, Marlene Alraune, Peter Alraune, Raul Bushman|
|First Appearance||Moon Knight #1(August, 1980)|
This new character appeared on the MCU’s screen through the TV show Moon Knight. Khonshu is a character based on an ancient Egyptian god named Khonsu, the god of the moon, time, vengeance, and protector of night travelers.
In the comics, Khonshu is often depicted as a capricious and vindictive person, both characteristic qualities of the Moon Knight. Because Khonshu could not act directly on Earth, he decided to pass on his will to individuals collectively known as the Moon Knights, which existed from ancient Mesopotamia to the present day, when Marc Spector was selected to take on the role.
|Aliases||The Destruction, Bob’s Big Boy, Buckethead, Hockey Stick Face, etc|
|Origin||Taa-an; Survivor of the previous universe, gestated as Galactus within the Cosmic Egg, and became a Cosmic Being|
|First Appearance||Fantastic Four #48(December, 1965)(As Galactus)Thor #169(October, 1969)(As Galan)Fantastic Four (Vol. 6) #41(March, 2022)(As the Destruction)|
This name is always associated with evil in the minds of many people. Known as the sole survivor of the old multiverse – the precursor to the current multiverse, Galactus was originally a scientist of the Taa civilization. They merged with the embodiment of the old universe and survived many years in the Cosmic Egg. He became Galactus, the Planet Eater. To sustain life for himself, Galactus is forced to absorb energy from planets in the universe to survive.
With its size and mass, Galactus has almost limitless strength; lifting 100 or 1000, even 1 million tons of Galactus, is as easy as lifting a grain of dust. Galactus has tremendous Marvel stamina when Galactus is usually more than able to withstand a max Power punch of Odin without any damage; Hulk’s max power punch is just enough to make Galactus break a few teeth.
|Aliases||God of Chaos, Dark God, He Who Sleeps, He Who Holds the Darkness, What Walked Once, Who Has Slept Since Before Man Crawled From the Sea,What Dwells Beneath, etc|
|Origin||Deity; Elder God degenerated into a Demon; Great Old One|
|First Appearance||Marvel Chillers #1(July, 1975)(as the Other)Avengers #186(May, 1979)(as Chthon)|
Chthon is an ancient Earth god responsible for supernatural beings such as werewolves, vampires, and witches. At full power, Chthon once killed Doctor Strange and was likened by Eternity to cancer threatening the universe’s existence.
The Elder Gods were a powerful race of beings that once inhabited Earth and possessed immense cosmic power. Chthon was once the Elder God, but after dark magic to rule the blue planet as the God of Chaos and create reality according to his wishes, he was exiled and sealed into another dimension through the portal at the Wundagore node, located in Eastern Europe.
|Aliases||God of a Forgotten Idea, God of the Abyss, God of the Dark, God of the Everblack, God of the Forge, God of the Symbiotes, God of the Void, King of the Abyss, etc|
|Origin||Elder God; Primordial deity of the Abyss|
|First Appearance||Thor: God of Thunder #6(March, 2013)(Retroactively)Venom (Vol. 4) #3(June, 2018)(Full appearance)Venom (Vol. 4) #4(July, 2018)(Chronologically)|
Knull is the Lord of the Symbiotes, who was imprisoned by his creations for many years until his release before the events of King in Black. Knull is an ancient entity slumbering in the darkness that enveloped the universe before the Big Bang until the Celestials brought to light and produced planets that caused his darkness to be pushed back to the edge of the universe.
Knull, in possession of an incomparable living sword, traveled across the universe to slaughter to satisfy his bloodlust until he was defeated by another god and fell to an anonymous planet in front of a mortal – who later became Gorr the Godslayer, one of Thor’s arch-enemies.
|Aliases||Chronos, Father of Fathers, Titan God of Time, Excluded K|
|Origin||Eternal turned into a cosmic being|
|First Appearance||Iron Man #55(October, 1972)|
Even the Eternals get bored sometimes. Before becoming Kronos, this Eternal was a scientist who enjoyed playing with cosmic energies. During an experiment, a terrible mistake resulted in an explosion that devastated the home planet of the Eternals and subsequently transformed him into a completely new being. Kronos‘ physical body was destroyed; however, his mind remained, merging with the timeline and becoming one with the universe.
Kronos possesses an intellect that surpasses all ordinary living things, telepathic abilities, and cosmological awareness. He can completely control the souls of the dead, even to the point of being able to put them into a body he created from nothing but nothing. Additionally, Kronos has evolved into one of the time’s manifestations, and to an undetermined extent, he has control over how time moves.
|Aliases||The Darkness, The Void, The End of Creation, The Nothing Which Watched the Birth of Everything, etc|
|First Appearance||Iceman #1(August, 1984)|
Considered one of the most potent Abstract Entities, Oblivion is one of the four pillars: Death, Eternity, Infinity, and himself. He was the one who existed before all things were born; if a being ever saw his true identity, that being would die. Oblivion has vast cosmic powers that he can use in various ways.
Originally, Oblivion had rights only to creatures that did not die but were erased from reality, while his counterpart Death had authority over death. In his recent appearance, Oblivion used Deathurge and Doorman as “Angels of Death,” sending them to collect dead souls. Oblivion plays a significant role because he can control and gradually lead the way to evil and nothingness. Therefore, his powers are almost endless, reaching the same level as his siblings, like Death or Infinity.
|Aliases||Spectre of Death, Carlos Muerte, Death Ryder, Marcia Lang, Mistress Death, John Kowalski, Little Man, X-8-8|
|First Appearance||Marvel Mystery Comics #10(June, 1940)|
Death was born in the same universe as other entities associated with her, such as Eternity and Galactus. While Eternity embodies life and growth, Death embodies decay and destruction. Just like his brothers, Death’s powers are almost omnipotent. She appeared as a skeleton of a human, and Death rarely raised her voice when speaking, and her presence was a testament to the message of death.
Death lives in his realm in the Realm Of Death (where all souls are forced to go when they die). She has Death’s undead working there as her minions and soldiers. During World War 2, Death also had an American soldier named John Kowalski, who became her messenger.
|Aliases||Jack, The Bartender|
|First Appearance||Jack, The Bartender|
This is a compelling fact that under his command are the Celestials, Watchers, and Horde. The Fulcrum has not shown much, but according to the descriptions, he is omnipotent and omniscient.
The Dreaming Celestial spoke to him and described him as “the essence of all that exists.” He often goes by the name “Jack” and works as a bartender at a bar where the Eternals rest after their deaths. Fulcrum could be Marvel’s most powerful entity besides The One Above All, or it could be The One Above All because both are drawn like Jack Kirby (The One Above All looks like old Kirby, and The Fulcrum looks like an old man). Young Kirby, most likely this is also the reason for the nickname Jack). Fulcrum is also commonly known as Bartender.
24. Molecule Man
|First Appearance||Fantastic Four #20(August, 1963)|
Molecule Man, real name Owen Reese is a compelling character; Owen Reece controls all matter and energy. Although he is often cast as a misunderstood villain, he also plays a hero from time to time. Molecule Man can control, transform, and manipulate molecules and energy.
Owen Reese is the bomb that Ivory Kings created to bring the Multiverse to zero. However, during the Secret Wars event, he absorbed the set of Beyond-Realm and Beyonders (Ivory Kings), becoming the ultimate being, far beyond the Multiverse. Owen could even defeat the True Living Tribunal if he wanted to.
|First Appearance||Guardians of the Galaxy #15(June, 1991)|
Protégé is the leader of the Universal Church of Truth – an empire created by the dark side of Adam Warlock, Magus. He ascended to the Dimension of Manifestations, where entities such as the Living Tribunal or Eternity are their supreme incarnations.
An entity with the ability to infinitely copy everything he could see and almost nothing to stop him. He copied the powers of the Beyonder (when in weak form), True Eternity, and True Living Tribunal, etc., and became null with that power, also stacking all of the previous mana into the Protege, which would have become “The new The-One-Above-All” if not beaten by Scathan and then locked in an hourglass by the True Living Tribunal.
26. Scathan The Approver
|Aliases||Scathan the Approver|
|First Appearance||Guardians of the Galaxy #45(December, 1993)(Mentioned only)Guardians of the Galaxy #46(January, 1994)(Full appearance)|
Scathan is summoned to participate in the trial of Protégé – who can copy the power of cosmic entities. According to the Living Tribunal, Scathan came here to witness and record his rulings like a “universal secretary general.”
As you probably already know about the Celestials race, this is the most vital entity of this guild. Scathan is ridiculously strong and silly, like a force representing The-One-Above-All at the Living Tribunal’s trial. Even Protege – a person with the ability to copy infinite power lost to Scathan with a “dislike” click, and these two guys even reached Overspace. Scathan is stronger than the True Living Tribunal and possesses Megaverse + rank powers, at the very least.
|Origin||Anthropomorphized form of the Infinity Gems|
|First Appearance||Thanos Quest #2(August, 1990)(Vision)Avengers/UltraForce #1(October, 1995)(Full)|
One of the first entities born after the Big Bang, Nemesis later destroyed herself to create the seven infinity stones. This character almost stayed out of all events until he was revived by the seventh Infinity Stone named Ego Stone. Possessing such a great power source, it is understandable that Nemesis can completely counter the Infinity Gauntlet.
Nemesis can create a series of universes and possess mighty creative power like God. Although possessing more power than the Infinity Gauntlet, the Living Tribunal was also frightened when it heard that Rune – a vampire from Nemesis’ universe – possessed these 6 Stones due to fear of the rise of Nemesis.
28. Queen Of Nevers
|Aliases||Fourth Cosmos, Never Queen, The Pilgrim, Queen of Always, Queen of Nothing, Sentience of the Fourth Cosmos, True Believer|
|First Appearance||Silver Surfer (Vol. 7) #1(March, 2014)(Partial appearance)Silver Surfer (Vol. 7) #2(April, 2014)(Full appearance), etc|
Queen of Never is a powerful entity of the Marvel universe. If Eternity is the embodiment of all that is, then the Queen of Never represents the possibilities of what might be. Because of this unique nature, the Queen of Never is present outside of Eternity.
The Queen of Nevers was first introduced in Silver Surfer #1 and has instantly become one of the most extraordinary entities in the entire multiverse. She used her incredible power to save the entire race of Celestials from destruction. That action alone is enough to ensure that the power that Neverqueen carries in it can completely overwhelm the Infinity Gauntlet.
|Aliases||Space Gods, Experimenters, Analyzers, Probers and Testers, “visitors from the sky”, Makers, Titans from Space, etc|
|Origin||First beings created|
|Reality||First Cosmos, Multiverse|
|First Appearance||Eternals #1(April, 1976)|
In the early years of Marvel Comics, the origin of the Celestials is a mystery. The Celestials are a group of enigmatic space entities – that can be considered an alien race – that was created by comic book author Jack Kirby. They possess great cosmic powers that have not been fully discovered at this time.
The Celestials are a compelling ancient race from a mysterious place in the vast universe. Their power is so terrible that they have made all the supreme gods of the Earth, such as Odin, Zeus, Osiris, etc., kneel in surrender. The greatest Celestial was Scathan the Approver, which even caused the Living Tribunal to respect some parts.
30. Mad Jim Jaspers
|Aliases||Jimmy, Mad Jim, The Reality Butcher, The Crooked Man, Lord Jim, The Crooked God|
|Origin||Mutant with powerful reality warping abilities.|
|First Appearance||Daredevils #7(July, 1983)|
Jimmy Jasper is widely acknowledged as the most powerful Mutant in the Marvel universe. Jasper’s reality-altering ability is said to be able to cause “chaos throughout the Omniverse, and all beings will have to become puppets in the hands of a god.” He can tear the Omniverse to pieces and then put it back together.
In addition, Jasper can change the structure of matter, warp space, and break the laws of physics; in short, he can do whatever he wants. A weaker version of Jasper at Earth-238 could change the reality of the entire universe, possibly even affecting other universes.
|Origin||Cosmic force of destruction|
|First Appearance||Fantastic Four Annual #2001(July, 2001)|
Continues to be an entity carrying the terrible power of the universe, like other entities; Abraxas also floats and wanders around the corners of the universe. Abraxas can destroy all structures of the universe, alter reality, and only Eternity can tame his limitless power. At this point, readers will also understand what it would be like if Thanos, unfortunately, had to confront Abraxas.
A clone of the mighty entity Eternity, Abraxas represents cosmic destruction. He was imprisoned by Galactus for a long time, but now he has found his freedom again. Possessing power comparable to the highest gods, Abraxas is capable of destroying all reality, and that alone is too much for the superheroes in the MCU.
|Aliases||Gray Goliath, Gray Hulk, Green Brute, Green-Genes, Green Golem, etc|
|Origin||Human whose molecular structure was transformed due to gamma radiation and trauma passed down by his father, and because of the Gamma Bomb which Bruce built, that exploded when he raced out onto the testing site while saving the life of Rick Jones as well as a result of his resurrection through the Green Door, thus becoming the Hulk, etc|
|First Appearance||Incredible Hulk #1(March, 1962)|
Although the question of whether the Hulk is stronger than Thor has never been decided, you could argue that given how much of the Hulk’s strength is dependent on his wrath, he has a good chance of being the Avenger with the most physical strength. There must be numerous failsafes in place before the Hulk may emerge. Not to mention that the Hulk at one time decided not to appear. He’s the team’s strongest player, but he also seems to be the most erratic.
Hulk might be so much more than the unpredictable wild card he currently is if there were fewer constrictive tendencies and idiosyncrasies of spirit. However, as things stand, he still possesses godlike strength and, as far as we can tell, a deathless nature. And this was after Endgame brought us Smart Hulk, the most sensible version of Banner we’ve ever seen. The best of both worlds may perhaps be in store for the Hulk in the future.
|Aliases||Charles Xavier, Charlie Silus, Dark Xavier, Death, The Entity, Magneto, Patchwork Man, Sir David the Great, “That Which Shall Survive”|
|Origin||Mutant, Psionic Entity|
|First Appearance||X-Men #106(May, 1977)(As Dark Xavier)X-Men and the Micronauts #1(October, 1983)(As the Entity)Uncanny X-Men #322(July, 1995)(Mentioned as Onslaught), etc|
Onslaught is a spiritual entity formed by the consciousness of two mutants: Professor Xavier (X) and Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr). During the battle between the X-Men and the Magneto mutants, Xavier uses his telepathic abilities to brainwash Magneto. Somehow, Magneto’s anger and desire for revenge mixed with Xavier’s consciousness and created a new personality known as Onslaught.
Onslaught’s ability is a combination of both mutants, meaning he can telepathically manipulate electromagnetic energy and change reality. In addition, Onslaught possesses incredible strength, durability, and genius intelligence.
|Aliases||Demon Fire God, Father of All Cataclysms, Fire Giant, First of the Fire Giants, Flame Colossus, The Flame Giant, God of Fire, God of Flame, Inventor of Flame, Lord of Ragnarok,|
|Origin||Asgardian Fire Giant; First of the Fire Giants|
|First Appearance||Journey into Mystery #97(August, 1963)|
Surtur is a giant fire monster ferocious; it comes from Muspelheim – a land of fire and fire and is the mortal enemy of Odin and his son Thor. Surtur is also destined to have much to do with Ragnarok, in which Asgard will be destroyed and reborn. Surtur’s mission is to destroy Asgard with the giant sword Twilight.
Surtur is a powerful and evil being with the power of a thousand flaming suns. He is a giant fire demon, more than 1,000 feet tall. In addition, Surtur also possesses superhuman strength, endurance, and high durability that surpasses that of Thor.
|Aliases||All-Father, Dione (name chosen for him before his birth), Mad Titan, Master, Masterlord, The Outcast, Overmaster, Thanos Rex, Prime Eternal|
|Origin||Eternal, Mutant, born with the Deviant Syndrome, whose abilities were amplified with meditation, arcana, and bionic implants|
|First Appearance||Iron Man #55(October, 1972)|
Thanos was born on Titan and is the son of Eternal Mentor and Sui-San. Thanos also carries the unique genes of the Deviants and shares his appearance and stature with them.
