He is the best! - CAPMAN

Anyone who thinks this character is bland is really not paying close attention. A truly interesting character forced to grow through difficult decisions in each of his solo movies.

Obviously the best in the cinematic universe, even though I am a spider-man fan - Jonerman

7 Rocket Raccoon Rocket Raccoon Rocket Raccoon is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Bill Mantlo and artist Keith Giffen, the character first appeared in Marvel Preview #7.

I like how he actually has a role rather than just being the punching bag in avengers endgame, he handled Thor quite well and it really shows how he developed a more normal personality rather than being violent and grumpy like in guardians of the galaxy.

Because of him they were able to get the reality Stone and get Thor out of his panic attack

He is a little aggressive sometimes but he cares a lot about his family. He was so good in EndGame. - Sa26

Should be at least top 5.Best Guardian in every movie and was really cool in Endgame - wriddhak

What a great character, especially as he developed more in the avengers movies.

Easily the most relatable character in the MCU, funny, charismatic yet also very vulnerable and flawed which is what makes him so entertaining and compelling to watch. He is exactly where he belongs, in the top 10.

So overrated he let Thanos win.Rocket is better anyday - BlackBlaster

Super Charismatic, relatable and has two of the best MCU movies to date. Star-Lord is one of the best characters from Marvel. And it isn't hard to see why.

Peter Quill did nothing wrong! - fiftythousandtoes

9 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.

12 Ultron 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.

He was weak.Comic version is way better - BlackBlaster

13 Ant-Man Ant-Man Ant-Man is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, Ant-Man's first appearance was in Tales to Astonish #27.

I really like how this character was used in Endgame. From the trailers we had a feeling he was going to be important to the story, and he absolutely was. I like how they inserted him directly into Thanos's battle. He showed his bravery by being unafraid to penetrate right to the bowels of the operation. Previously, he was a minor character in the MCU. But in Endgame, his role rapidly expanded. And it was such an emotional explosion for this character. You can tell that things are different for this character after the things he has seen. And it's obviously going to be difficult after this for him to pick up the pieces.

Scott Lang is such a good character because he's a family man and he loves Cassie so much. He's my favourite and is so good in endgame.

He takes the best aspects of the other heroes and combines them into one. Tech like Iron Man, Spider-Man's Charm and Cap's devotion to do what's right. The Best Hero!

Ant-man is amazing - Triceratops

Peggy Carter in #67? Who are these people, come on! Agent Peggy Carter is the definition of badass. She is strong and independent, but since she lives in the 1940’s (when women were considered to be below men) nobody realizes that, but Peggy didn’t give up. She was determined to make people respect her, regardless of her gender. She believes everyone plays an important role in this world, and doesn’t underestimate anyone, but instead encourages people (like Steve) to see their potential. She knows what she deserves and what she’s worth, and she won’t let anyone forget that. She doesn’t need a man to save her. She is her own strong woman, and won’t play anyone’s damsel in distress. Despite this tough exterior, Peggy is driven by a desire to help others. She is also a bit of a rebel, and doesn’t need anyone’s approval to do what she believes is right. She is quick to stand up for herself and won’t be cowered down by anyone. She doesn’t run from danger, she faces ...more
