Most Powerful Marvel Characters

No omnipotent beings like One Above All or Living Tribunal. No Cosmic Cube beings like Beyonder. Beings who use certain power-ups such Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet were scored without the power-up, unless it is their major weapon. No alternative forms of a being such as World War Hulk or Red Hulk can be counted. Only mainstream, updated versions.
The Top Ten
1 One Above All

He controls everything that goes on in the multi-verse, other universes, and other dimensions. He is omnipotent and omniscient. He sent the Living Tribunal to help him watch over everything, who is like the third most powerful being. Need I say more?

Literal omnipotent GOD of Marvel, and your rules above say no omnipotents, so why is One Above All even on this list.

Name says it all. The most powerful being allowed in the marvel universe.

2 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.

He doesn't have the gauntlet anymore. This is what happens when people only watch movies and don't know anything about the real marvel.

He does not even have all of the infinity stones anymore. People just go off of what they see in movies

Dark Oak from Sonic X is on the same level of power as him.

3 Galactus Galactus is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Formerly a mortal man, Galactus is a cosmic entity who originally consumed planets to sustain his life force, and serves a functional role in the upkeep of the primary Marvel continuity.

Should be #2 in my opinion, not as strong as OAA but definitely stronger than Thanos, even if Thanos had the Infinity Gauntlet. He can eat whole planets! Not only does he do that, but he is also called the Lifebringer, meaning he can create life. Devourer of worlds and Lifebringer, not to mention the Power Cosmic. And if you have the Silver Surfer working for you, you know you're doing something right.

There is literally dozens of other marvel characters above him, take death for example, she destroyed a universe with nothing but a wave of her hand, and beyonder swatted galactus like a fly, franklin Richards also made a powered up galactus his herald... so many ignorant comments below me smh...

4 Beyonder

How the hell is Galactus and Thanos above the god damn beyonder who stated to be bigger than the entire marvel universe itself? Beyonder should he second place besides the one above all.

Beyonder literally can do anything with his strength, he controls all the planets, every action, every move.

5 Living Tribunal

Jesus fying christ the living tribunal is 10 the people on this website are morons! It's most powerful not most popular, do us all a favor and at least read the Marvel encyclopedia to get educated.

6 Phoenix Force

She is powerful, can kill Thanos easy, and I don't get why Norse and Greek myths are in marvel and why are the only 4 characters too of the myths and Zues is a rip off thor and oden if you know what I mean. and why isn't balder or Thors other brothers in the comics, and ragnerok happened when Loki killed his brother Balder, it just doesn't make sence if you study mythology really.

7 Eternity
8 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

Firstly, Thor Odinson is a God and being a God, he should be powerful. He is the son of King Odin (as per his surname:~Odinson). His Mjolnir and 'thunderic' powers are just intolerable to most of the superheroes, except a few... Hulk could not manage to lift it up... Besides, he is the God of Thunder...

Thor is super powerful. He was able to hold his own against Hulk himself.

He is immortal and stronger than anyone one and more powerful

9 Odin Odin Borson is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was the former King of Asgard, protector of the Nine Realms, father of Hela and Thor, the adoptive father of Loki, husband of Frigga, and was known as the "God of War and Wisdom". In... read more

Odin, is the Dad of Thunder God, Thor. He has flicked Galactus away like he was shooing away a bird. Let's not forget, he's the ALL FATHER ! ! ! I'm not saying he's better than: Galactus, The One Above All, The Beyonder, The Living Tribunal, Or The Phoenix Force ! ! ! But he's surely better than: Silver Surfer, Dormammu, Not sure about Eternity?Tell me what you think in the comments below ! ! ! The Hulk, His Own Son, Thor, and, Not Sure About Thanos Either? Tell me in the comments below ! ! ! Odin's definitely not Number Twelve, at least Number Ten. Hope u Think So Too ! ! !

10 Silver Surfer The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Born Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's abilities are given to him through the Power Cosmic. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four #48 in 1966 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

The Contenders
11 The 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.

Obviously strong. Has limitless strength!

Most Powerful, yet compassionate.

12 Sentry

Sentry is the most powerful superhero he could beat anyone on this list

13 Dormammu
14 Deadpool Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics. Deadpool's first appearance was in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza in February of 1991. His powers include self-healing and super strength. He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due... read more

Literally able to interect with the Marvel Universe as a writer of the comics would be able to.

Didn't he survive the universe blowing up?

15 Stan Lee

He literally CREATED most of these characters! (not Thor and Loki (he created the marvel versions, not the original versions tho)

Actually The One Above All is supposed to create the image of Stan Lee.

He should be top 1! He controls all!

16 Dr Strange Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange, best known under his alias Doctor Strange, is a fictional superhero created by artist Steve Ditko and writer Stan Lee appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Doctor Strange serves as the Sorcerer Supreme, the primary protector of Earth against magical... read more

If this is classic Dr. Strange, then he should be 3. He literally was a threat to the Living Tribunal, and the Living Tribunal didn't even see the infinity gauntlet as a threat.

17 Franklin Richards

Can create pocket dimensions and made a powered up galactic his Herald.

18 Hyperion
19 Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She is thought to be one of the most powerful people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and can... read more

Are you joking 22nd place? And behind Dr Strange who she clearly beats in Dr Strange multiverse of Madness and Thanos who scares him so much that he has to set fire on his troop like what is going on with the world

How is she not one! she was able to take down Thor without getting a scratch! And she could have destroyed Thanos if she wasn't hit by a air force missile thing!

20 Apocalypse Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Beat and enslaved the Hulk. Most powerful mutant on earth with class 100+ strength and he even beat the Phoenix force

21 Ultron Ultron is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is most recognized as a foe of the Avengers, and has a quasi-familial relationship with several of their members, especially his creator Hank Pym.
