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 One Above All

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

Can bend reality to make unicorns excist

From the name ONE ABOVE ALL. duh? enough said.

This guy should be number 2. Thanos should be number 1. - Aaronwahed

Ghost Rider could easily beat Thanos with his penance stare. He already beat Galactus in the comics and he didn't even have to get off his bike to do it. - RogerMcBaloney

2 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.

He can wipe out the whole population

Thanos is basically god with the gauntlet if he wanted to be

This guy should be number one because he is also known as the most powerful being in the universe - Aaronwahed

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

3 Galactus 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! He not only does 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 your doing something right.

He is the most powerful villain in the mcu

He swallows up planets and can control galaxies and the universe

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

#2 op

Beyonder is the most powerful ever under the one above all be yonder basically is the one above all where he's from

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. - Omega86

6 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.

Thor beats hulk up and is a God so he is number 3 in my opinion

Thor is stronger than Hulk so why is he only at 10th place also he is a god is Hulk a god (no)

He is immortal and stronger than anyone one and more powerful

Nah, hulk would beat thor

He's THE BEST!

The hulk don't have limits to his power, the more you hit him, he gets nervous and it gets more powerful

Two words, HULK SMASH, word

He destroyed a asteroid twice the size of the earth

8 Phoenix (Force)

She can destroy everything

All Truth is now known!

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.

Phoenix Force actually DID beat Galactus.

9 Eternity

UNLIMITED COSMIC POWER! ; kids and the lower IQ vote on this website. - Omega86

He's the best

Cosmos need I say more

13 Dr Strange

Not Godly powerful, but i’d put him #5-#10

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. - Aimers

He literally can do anything and took on thanks himself and held his own as well as beating dormammu and mephisto

Master of Mistic Arts. he should be #3

14 Sentry

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

15 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 might be the most powerful character. He is the physical form of an infinitely powerful god of vengeance. He is immortal and invulnerable (except if his physical host dies when not in Ghost Rider form which doesn't affect him as he can just find a new one).

In the comics, Ghost Rider beat Galactus in seconds. I bet he could easily beat Thanos as well. - RogerMcBaloney

He,s not that strong

Gohstface ruder is a best I like Deadpool a lot but gohst rider stomps almost anyone he beat the hulk he beat Galactus witch is 3 on this list.

Ok I love deadpool but ghost rider is the man he has beaten the avengers including hulk he beat glactus with one move the penace stare come on should be number one

30 Red Hulk Red Hulk

What! Red hulk has all hulks power

31 Death
32 Lady Death
33 Onslaught Onslaught

He has franklin Richards powers as well as magneto and professor Xavier, combining all three and the strength to throw juggernaut across a city, he is quite over powered

34 Adam Warlock Adam Warlock Adam Warlock, originally known as Him or Adam, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character's earliest appearances were in Fantastic Four #66–67 and Thor #165–166.

Admiral effort of convincing but your still uneducated if you think Adam is top ten and an absolute fool if you even mention number one or two in the same breadth as Adam Warlock. - Omega86

Beat thanos in comics

My 11 Reasons why Adam Warlock should be second (Maybe 1st, not to sure)

1. Literally the opposite of Thanos, Death can't claim his soul
2. He had the infinity Gauntlet and bonded with the Soul Stone previously.
3. Held is own against Thor when he was around the maturity of a child/teenager (possibly young adult) without any weapons
4. Can fly faster then the speed of light in space
5. The Soul Stone chose to bond with him (The Soul Stone claimed him to be his strongest host)
6. Resistant to things like the Time Freeze from the Time Stone and Reality Warping
7. Is Clairvoyant
8. Once turned Thanos into granite and could only be reverted by Death herself
9. Can time travel
10. Master of Quantum Magic (Guess this means he should be in front of Doctor Strange)
11. Astral Outsider: Adam is outside the loop of destinies and as such is capable of deeds in which cannot easily be seen or tracked by even those with cosmic senses (such as Quasar) wielding ...more

35 Magneto Magneto Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.
36 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.

Stronger than ghost rider - Scarlettelovesyou

Big he is a boss in the comics he almost killed thanos and even without powers still kicks ass he should in the top 5 at least

He is the best

hell yea

37 Hela Hela

Wait a second. Surt killed her and destroyed Azgard in about ten seconds and still isn't on this list. Whatever about Azgard being a people not a place. Surt could destroy anything including Thanos. Thanos is lucky that Surt was on a quest to destroy Azgard instead of taking the infinity stones for himself.

The only marvel character that is stronger then Hela is Thanos
