Iron Man...
"I love you 3000"
"No amount of money ever bought a second of time."
"Are you seriously telling me your plan to save the universe is based on Back to the Future?"
"Everybody wants a happy ending. But it doesn't always roll that way."
"It's not about how much we lost. It's about how much we have left. We're the Avengers. We gotta finish this. You trust me?"
"I am Iron Man."
SO MANY GOOD QUOTES! I'm mad at the directors of Avengers: Endgame for making Tony die. But... I have a theory. When he snapped, he got stuck in the Soul Stone world, causing him to die in real life. Because remember after Thanos snapped, he was in that orange-looking world with young Gamora? I think Iron Man and Black Widow are trapped in there. Maybe also with Gamora because she also fell off this cliff in Vormir...

He's not my favourite but I love this character. Without this guy, the MCU never would've been the success it is today. The face of the MCU.

I have a huge Crush on Tony Stark/ IronMan.

He is one of the fictional characters I've had the biggest crush on.

I love his sense of Humor, Confidence and really does everything for the people he loves.

Awesome character, definitely my favorite he is so cool. He was really cool in endgame, but I am not giving spoilers

The one who started it all.

2 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.

Why is Captain America up here? He's a huge hypocrite! He always says stuff about teamwork and honesty and sacrifice but he never does any of it!
1. He lied and cheated to get in the army, even though he was super unfit.
2. He never told Tony about his parents, which is just cruel.
3. He up right IGNORED the wishes of 117 countries. What the sh-
4. Attacked Tony ruthlessly after he saw the truth about his parents.
He's a jerk, a hypocrite, and has lacked any character develoment.

He's my favourite MCU character. Iron Man used to be my favourite but this guy took the spotlight for me. I've come to understand his character so much more ever since TFA and appreciate what he stands for.

The Hulk is my favorite Marvel hero from the time I was 8 years old, but without question the portrayal of Cap by Chris Evans has to be number 1. They kept the character true to Kirby origins, and pulled it off...without the 'cool' factor, he became the coolest cinematic hero, Marvel, DC or Indy, EVER.

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.

3 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 was amazing in Infinity War.

That entrance in Wakanda with Rocket And groot was one of the greatest moments of the film.

This guy is a god and he faces much more challenging situations than captain america, cap is boring compared to thor
thor > cap is fact.

He's so amazing, and his storyline in his comics, Thor, and Thor: Ragnarok! So brave and selfless!

His movie haven't been that great neither he had a big roles in the avengers movies so...

4 Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the ...read more.

Spider-Man is awesome. I love how he was like "It's like Footloose" and Star-Lord says "Exactly like Footloose! Is it still the greatest movie on Earth?" and then Spider-Man says "Technically, it never was-" and Tony interrupts them. I just love how when Tony came to get him for Captain America: Civil War, and Tony says "So what do you call yourself? Spiderling? The crime-fighting spider? Spider-Boy?" And then Peter answers with like a stutter and he's like "Sp- Spider-Man..." and Tony says "Not in this onesie you're not." and Peter says "Not a onesie." BuT iT aCtUaLlY iS a OnEsIe PeTeR

Spider-Man is my favorite superhero and is most peoples as well. A teenager bitten by a spider, gets spider powers, is sympathetic and makes a spider actually seem great, (also spiders are one of my favorite animals, don't know if that's why I love Spider-Man or if Spider-Man is the reason I love spiders)

I'm sad that spiderman is leaving the mcu but I heard that there's a way he can come back to the mcu.

5 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.

By far the most interesting and complex character in the MCU. You feel for his need for acceptance and love. He's just a God whose trying to achieve what he never had: a place to belong. He's sometimes too blinded by his jealously and grief to see that his brother Thor loves and cherishes him above all. I think the movies sketch his journey of realising that it isn't always about power, but of the smaller things. I think LOKI has finally realised that Thor and himself are a unit and their bond runs thicker than blood

Loki's character is one of the most interesting out of all of the MCU characters. He's been through so much, and I love how he's an on and off ally of Thor. His fear of the Hulk is hilarious, too.

Okay no. He should be higher than Thor I understand iron man and maybe captain America but come on, he is my favourite and he's just so amazing a d complex

Should be in 11 place, the others don't even act, only Chris Evan at some times, but the first ones? Are you joking? They are lame actos that got lucky, Loki at least has a good actor and depht, he should be #1 by far

6 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.

The guy's been through literal hell almost his entire life, and the fact that he's still been able to keep going after so many unfortunate events while still being a badass at the same time astounds me.

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.

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

7 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.

Through the amazing series wandavision, she deserves a definite top ten. It's amazing to see her character Arc from a scared yet powerful sokovian who has lost so many loved ones she'll break at any second to a loving and kind mother in Wandavision, and her power... She's definitely the most powerful hero, even more than Strange and Carol, for various reasons that if you're really curious about you can ask me in reply comments. She's not my favourite, but she deserves higher

Definitely my favorite! She is the most powerful avenger, and I love her personality! I am so glad she is the attention she should get due to the amazing series WandaVision. Should at least be in the top 5.

Definitely an underrated superhero. She's a complexed, powerful character that deserves recognition. I hope they use her well in Phase 4.

She definitely deserves her place in the top 10.

She was incredible in both infinity War and EndGame

8 Black Widow Natalia Alianovna Romanova, most known as Natasha Romanoff or the Black Widow, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is one of the most talented spies and assassins in the entire world and is a founding member of the Avengers. The character was created ...read more.

She is badass

9 Star-Lord Star-Lord is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, created by Steve Englehart and Steve Gan, first appeared in Marvel Preview #4. ...read more.

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.

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.

10 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.

Good villain, would be amazing if I wasn't so effected by how famous characters are since I usually decrease my liking to a character if it gets to popular

I'm sad he killed some beloved characters but, I can't hate him he's a great villain he wants his goal even losing the things that he loves to get his goal

"Thanos should be number one! "

Why isn't he first

The Contenders
11 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.

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!

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.

YAY
