Top 10 Best Characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe 

The Top Ten
1 Iron Man Iron Man Iron Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as its associated media. The character was created by writer and editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. He made his first appearance ...read more.

He's my #3 favourite character in all of the movies! He's just so sarcastic and funny, and I just love everything about him! He also basically started the entire MCU, because he hinted at The Avengers in the after credits scene of Thor. He's just the best! I love him 3000! There is only 2 characters in the entire MCU that I like more then him, and I LOVE him! Iron Man is just amazing, and RDJ portrayed him perfectly! He's so amazing, he's a hero, his personality is PERFECT, and I just love all of his qualities! He's my #3 favourite character! I love him so much!

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...

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 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.

Not as good as some other characters, but he's still really amazing! I love Cap 3000! He has a great personality, he's a great best friend, a great hero, and I just love everything about him! I just love his character! He's so amazing, and I just love everything about him! Captain America: Civil War, is my favourite Marvel movie, and Chris Evans played him PERFECTLY! He's so amazing!

There is someone here stating that cap is a hypocrite so I'll answer to it:

1. He lied because he wanted to die in service for it's country AGAISNT THE NAZIS. It's not like he only wanted to go to the army because of career or something.
2. Indeed, despite not knowing it was Bucky, he should have told him.
3. The wishes of 117 governments*. And, in my opinion, he was right. After founding out that Shield was corrupted by Hydra, it's totally understandable that he doesn't want to accept others from governments, because they can always have second interests. Governments can easily manipulate informations for their favor and it's always better to trust individuals than institutions.
4. He was getting attacked and his best friend was going to be killed. Everything he wanted was to protect Bucky. He had the chance to seriously harm Tony or even kill him but refused and dropped the shield.
And yes, in Civil War he is a bit of annoying and heartless sometimes, but he had ...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.

3 Spider-Man 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.

Most relatable character. It's great that he chooses to look out for the little guy, the people the Avengers don't normally think about. Protecting the neighborhood is something not as many MCU characters do. He's also one of the most tragic MCU characters. He started being a hero because of the guilt he felt when his Uncle died, and now he's lost everything and everyone he knows and loves. He's got some of the best stories in the MCU.

He's one of my favourite characters! I love Spider-Man! I personally think he was best played by Tom Holland, but if you have a different opinion then that's fine too. I just love him, and he's so interesting! Spider-Man: Homecoming, is one of my favourite Marvel movies. I just love him!

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)

4 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 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...

5 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.

My #2 favourite character! I've always loved Loki. His personality is 100% PERFECT! He's sarcastic and funny, and every time he showed up in any movie, I always loved the scene. Even Thor 1, which was the worst movie... ever, had some decency because Loki was in it! I just love him so much! He was a GREAT villain in Avengers, and his backstory and show are interesting, and- I just love him, okay? Plus I think he's hot, I kind of have a crush on him...

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

6 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.

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

7 Black Widow 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

8 Scarlet Witch 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

9 Star-Lord 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.

He's so underrated, and my favourite Guardian! I just love him! He's so funny and he's a great character!

10 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. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Bradley Cooper.

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.

The Contenders
11 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. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Paul Rudd.

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.

Good in a crossover film, not that interesting in a solo film.

12 Doctor Strange Doctor 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.

13 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.

Was amazing, until Ragnarok and Inifinity War dumbed him down. And Endgame Hulk was crap.

14 Black Panther Black Panther T'Challa, better known as the Black Panther, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, first appearing in Fantastic Four #52 (cover-dated July 1966) in the Silver Age of Comic Books. He is known to be the ...read more.

He never freeze!

Eh, he was good in Civil War,his solo movie sucked and he was boring.He was also boring in Infinity War.

22 Bucky Bucky James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Sebastian Stan.

OMG HE'S MY #1 FAVOURITE MARVEL CHARACTER EVER! I've always loved Bucky since his first appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger, and even now I still love him! As Winter Soldier he's THE BEST, and he's so badass and... I just love him! Bucky is so amazing! I love his personality and his story and character is just amazing! Plus, I have the biggest majorest (I don't care it's not a word) crush on him. Omg I think he's so hot... I just love him!

His metal arm and headstrong personality makes him a tough and cool hero.

He was a great villain in Winter Soldier and a great hero in Civil War and Infinity War

23 Agatha Harkness
24 Red Skull Red Skull The Red Skull is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
