No doubt he the man! Been my favorite since the beginning

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can!

Both the MCU movies and the original comics by Stan Lee are great!

Spooder man is the best character in marvel and captain America is trash and licks big shields because he's sad

Best story arcs / real hero with real situations and personal problems - Dan2431567

Iron man is the coolest guy ever he has 42 different powerful
Armors, he can even control it in at the same time. He is the one who
Save the entire city and the avengers in the movie the avengers.

Whats to say? He is the most Humane Marvel Hero

This should totally be #1. Tony Stark is like the best Marvel character ever. He may be a bit arrogant and the is the whole playboy thing, but he defeats bad guys all thanks to his genius.

3 Wolverine Wolverine Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.

He is badass - mikenike87

A remarkable and interesting character with the most badass powers that enables him to showcase fierce and exciting fighting techniques on the screen. The story of Wolverine and basically everything about him makes him the most intense, grittiest and fascinating character in the marvel universe. The Wolverine 2013 is also one of the best movies. Amazing!

Wolverine is an amzing character! Claws make him one of the most violent heroes ever to exist. A rule to me is BLOOD makes a character (Wolverine) awesome!
Wolverine is like the BEST OF THE BEST X-Men Charcter. Wolverine is amazing because of his claws and the power to grab and kill right away.

Wolverines a beast! IF you have read the civil war wolverine series you know what I am talking about. That might just be the best one I have read so far - challey

Deadpool is the best, the funniest superhero

Canadian like me, unkillable, 4th wall breaking allows him to enter our universe and get the writers to do what he wants, killed the marvel universe, funniest dude ever, how can he not be the coolest

The funniest ninja on the planet that is getting his own video game!

Are you kidding me deadpool should be number 1 his health regeneration is faster than wolverines and he survived the battle against hulk when wolverine threw him at hulk and wolverine was the only other character that survived.

5 Captain America Captain America Captain Steven Grant Rogers, most known as Steve Rogers or Captain America, is a fictional superhero appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was a World War II veteran and is known as the world's first superhero. The character was created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon and ...read more.

Based on his ideals, Cap should be the standard superhero everyone should look up to. I do anyway.

Captain america can stinkin' hold both thor weapons!. HE SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!

Though Siderman's great, Cap. is the hero that makes others look like students. He practically is the face of Marvel, underdog to hero. Everyone's favorite story, he's above all the modest and true hero. Not wanting to do it for someone, not revenge, plain and simple. Humbleness is the ruler of great qualities, he takes the gold, silver, and bronze for that. So great that it goes around.

Captain America is my favorite super hero of all time he was whole reason why I like comic books and I always call him the mighty warrior for freedom and justice and has natural charisma and the all American flag look and he is the best

6 Hulk Hulk Robert Bruce Banner, also known as The Hulk or Bruce Banner, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and was portrayed by Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Watch any movie or read any comic, it takes multiple heroes/characters to bring down the HULK, or to calm him down. He destroys anything or anyone in his path, the only time I believe where he was in trouble was against COSMIC Spiderman, but please... that's pretty weak. HULK is clearly the #1

Dude, hulk has infinite strength and is known for these deeds. Holding up a mountain, killing the red king, taking down almost all the marvel characters, and (My personal favorite) cracking onslaught's indestructible armor. All the avengers couldn't do it but then they just let out hulk.

HULK is unique in any fashion. A potential rival to Vector the Crocodile, he can smash, thump his chest, lift anything more than two times his very heavy weight and HULK Smash anyone or anything. He is the greatest Marvel hero of all time.

The best marvel character and the strongest by far have been reading marvel since 1968 and no all the villians and heroes by heart and the hulk beats them all.

7 Venom Venom Venom, or the Venom Symbiote, is an alias used by several fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man.

He is the most bad ass villain/anti-hero I've ever seen

Venom is so cool. He is one of the most iconic villains ever.

Venom is off the chain. I especially like Flash Thompson as Venom.

May venom reign supreme FOREVER!

8 Thor Thor Thor Odinson is a fictional superhero appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather ...read more.

He's so awesome

Virtually a god, a mystical hammer, can control the weather with super strength to boot. You just should not logically be able to beat Thor.

Undeniably one of the greatest Marvel Characters ever. The Avengers would be barely anything without at least some version of Thor whether Jane Foster or Odinson. The concept of not being able to lift his hammer, Mjolnir, unless you're worthy, is one of the best twists for a superhero and allows character development for others besides Thor him/herself. This hero deserves a spot on the top 5. Come on, my people. You're seriously gonna let DEADPOOL be taking a higher position than THOR?!?!?

We are talking about strength and Spiderman does not deserve any of that. Thor is definitely the one unless One Above All just destroys him from all his comics. Thor wields one of the strongest weapons in the universe, a hammer called Mjlonir.

9 Ghost Rider Ghost Rider Ghost Rider is the name of several fictional supernatural antiheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Ghost rider is bad ass in fighting he will beat any character you name.

Ghost Rider can beat anyone in fighting with his fire.

One of the coolest and strongest characters in marvel! Thor, hulk and dr strange are nothing compared to the power of the rider

He is so awesome!

The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #14, and since then he has become one of the characters most famous villains. He was ...read more.

Best villain in history, surpassing Darth Vader easily in my opinion. If there is a Spiderman movie in the DVD shops, cinemas; or a videogame dedicated to Spiderman, it is all out there thanks to good old Norman Osborn. I have read almost 500 old Amazing Spider-Man comics. Read about at least 600 characters in marvel universe but none was as impressive as Green Goblin and his genius.

Total beast just awesomely creepy

IKR Green Goblin is so awesome! X-P - ScourgetheHedgehog

11 Daredevil Daredevil Daredevil is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Daredevil was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, with an unspecified amount of input from Jack Kirby. ...read more.

This is unbelievable. How does Daredevil not even appear on the top tens? Let's go guys! This guy is legendary! There is no way that Venom should get the 8th spot and Daredevil is on the Honorable Mentions.

Part ninja, part acrobat. Superhuman senses and balance. Matt Murdock is the ultimate underdog in the MU.

Of course daredevil should be up top he's blind and an amazing crime fighting hero I think he's one of the best marvel superheroes

The NETFLIX series is amazing. His origin is. I mean, you're talking about the hero who teamed up with Spidey many times, took part in Civil War, Avengers vs X-Men, and a bunch more epic Marvel events, and even fought the Punisher! With radar sense, Batman-like fighting styles, and legendary foes such as the Kingpin, this is definitely one of my favorite superheroes, and deserves a spit on the top ten list, without question!

12 Nightcrawler

The charming BAMFing devil. He's as good natured and well mannered as he is deadly. The guy actually teleported from a mission briefing and gave Kitty a NightCrawler soft toy to play with as she was too young to go with the x men to fight. How can you not put someone like that in top 10

One of the best!

So OP

13 The Punisher The Punisher The Punisher is a fictional antihero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist John Romita, Sr., with publisher Stan Lee green-lighting the name.

Frank Castle is the most underrated character in marvel. He is smart, good with a gun, can tolerate enormous amount of pain, and has the most honor out of anyone in comics. Semper-Fi!

14 Storm Storm Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.

Ororo Munroe is the most recognizeable female mutant in marvel universe. I like her mohawk look and the different costumes that she wear. I like her style. And most of all, I like her attitude. Her powers are really awesome. She is even considered an omega level mutant. She's my favorite X-man character and her team X-men gold is my favorite too. Storm has a great heart. - RLAAMJR

Though she is claustrophobic, she tries to be strong and fight against evil at all costs. She tries to see through a problem and find solutions analytically unlike Wolverine. Her ability to control the mother nature is one of the most powerful abilities one can have as a mutant.

Probably the most powerful female X-Man along with Jean Grey, Strom is classified as an Omega level mutant. Seriously, what mutant can create tornadoes, storms, and flash floods with a wave of their hand? Her will is impressive and her skills as a thief are one of the best in the Marvel universe. She's way more powerful than her teammates, if you compare her to Nightcrawler, or even Colossus or Iceman.

Storm is the epitome of strong, independent women. She is absolutely unmatched in beauty, grace and power.
Although, they could have chosen a better person to play her in the X-Men Movies... Halle Berry was sorry as hel.. - Celestius

15 Thanos Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Finally a Villain who made Marvel Villain a bigger attention and more recognition to come. GO THANOS! You are very best to know fellow up on!

He's the strongest person in the universe. he has vanquished half the universe already

No spoilers

As person before me say he in avenger infinity war plus he's the second greatest villain of all time number 1 is mistress death (his boss and crush) - MarvelcampomWWE

16 Carnage Carnage Carnage (Cletus Kassidy) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man. He appeared for the first time in The Amazing Spider-Man #361.

He can duplicate!

He's just so relatable

CARNAGE WILL BEAT THE HELL OUT OF SPIDER-MAN

17 Loki Loki Loki Laufeyson, or Loki Odinson, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor, and is known as the "God of Mischief". In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character has been portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Loki can't be below any villain on this list. He just can't!

Loki is awesome in every way possible in the films, I mean he's played by a great actor, has amazing lines, and can do anything really.

Are you kidding me? Loki is even better than thor! HE SI THE BEST, MORTALS! Google, loki is better than thor, see what you get.

Okay so Loki is cool, but I don't get why people like Thor so much when Loki is so much better. - Anonymousxcxc

If these people are gonna disrespect the leader of a entire COUNTRY, then I don't know what to do to the fools. HE SHOULD AT LEAST BE NUMBER FOUR!

Seriously? Black Panther at 31? Ever since I got into Marvel when I was 7, Panther has been my favorite hero. He's extremely underrated, and no one takes him to his full potential. I also would vote for Ultron, Captain America, Vision, and Kang if I could.

How the fudge is Howard the duck above black Panther

He is just the best superhero every no need for explanation

An extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature, the original Groot first appeared as an ...read more.

Groot is very heavy in weight due to his species of a tree. He is also very tall in height. His width never changes when he grows, he yaks himself out into a lanky beanstalk as he is. Groot should be top 1. Spiderman is overrated (yet still a masterpiece whom we need for Marvel to continue). Groot has the ability to absorb wood as food, regenerate, control any tree, form plants and use them to attack others, and even appears as resistant to fire. Groot can also sprout, dramatically increasing mass but even severely inhibiting movement. Groot is not very close to overpowered, but he must be top 1!
