Top Ten Saddest Deaths in Marvel Movies

Spoiler alert. Here are top ten deaths that can be superheroes or non-superheroes from the movies made by Marvel.
The Top Ten
1 Wolverine (Logan) 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.

I'd go as far as to say this is the saddest death in movie history. I remember after seeing Logan's death in the theater, I walked back to my truck, and started full on sobbing, and I'm a grown man. I had seen one of my childhood icons die a hero's death, and it served as a reminder that I was growing up.

This, in my opinion, is the saddest superhero death I've ever seen. Unlike most superhero movies, our hero stays dead. No sign of him coming back. Logan is the most beautiful movie that I've ever seen, had a BEAUTIFUL ending to the X-Men, Logan, Charles Xavier, everyone.
"There are no more guns in the valley"

This death was especially sad since he was trying to protect the new generation of mutants, and we have all loved seeing him on screen

I Agree it was very sad

2 Yondu (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2) Yondu Udonta, or simply Yondu, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Michael Rooker.

I'd say this is the saddest death if you know the situation of the movie very well. It's a dad-and-son moment. With Yondu apologizing to Quill and showing deep regret for what he did. Then the orchestra perfects this scene. And the best part was when Yondu pats Quill's cheek slowly and dies while Quill cries. Yondu making an ultimate sacrifice. Very heart shattering moment.

Yondu's death was super sad. he may have not been the perfect father but he truly loved Peter. he sacrificed himself to save Peter's life. He was a better father than Ego ever was because at least he didn't try to destroy everything

This death was sad because yondu sacrificed his life to give his adopted son peter quill more time to live. He seemed bad but deep down all he wanted was to protect quill

He died to save the the only person he had as family even when quill betrayed him...

3 Tony Stark (Avengers: Endgame)

Okay so, this should be number one. All of my family left the theatre sobbing, even my father and he's a grown man. Tony was a father to Morgan, who was only five years old. And he was basically Peter Parker's father who had no one else. And he brought the Avengers together and sacrificed himself to the save the UNIVERSE. If this list doesn't have Tony Stark first, its not accurate.

(Lets out deep breath)

Okay, let's talk about this. First of all, the last 45 minutes of "Endgame" were the greatest 45 minutes of any Avengers movie. It was better than every Loki quote, every time an Avenger made a pun, and it was the greatest thing ever. As for the death of Iron Man... oh my gosh. It was more about the build-up than the actual death, like Strange slowly lowering his fingers so that one was left, and Iron Man realizing what he had to do. And then Thanos was like, "I am... inevitable," and snapped his fingers, but it didn't work. I did not see that coming at all. Then, Thanos looks up, and Iron Man has the gauntlet and all the stones (how did he do that?) and says, "and I am... Iron Man." He snaps his fingers, and Thanos and his army perish. It was the best movie ever. We need another one like it, but I don't think we will have another movie that can even come close to matching "Endgame."

He should be number 1, he isn't my favorite Marvel hero, but goddammit I would be lying if I said his death didn't shake me. Tears were coming down my face as I saw the hero I grew up with die, and I didn't do it for the others. Loki, I teared up, Spider Man, I was upset, but Tony's hit me harder than those two combined.

Damn this was sad. I made this list before endgame came out, so obviously this wasn't on here however, now I think we need to get this up there somewhere

4 Professor x (Logan) Professor Charles Francis Xavier is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is the founder and leader of the X-Men.

The same as wolverine, he was a character long remembered throughout the films, and most of us knew his time had to come. But the way marvel did it was very sad

5 Odin (Thor Ragnorak) 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 more.
6 Gwen Stacy (The Amazing Spider-Man) Gwendolyne Maxine "Gwen" Stacy is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as a supporting character in those featuring Spider-Man.

I'm just imagining Spider-Gwen's reaction when seeing herself die.

7 Quicksilver (Age of Ultron) Quicksilver is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in the comic book X-Men #4 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

He was my favourite character along with Scarlet Which. Made me so sad watching Wanda react and watching Pietro die. Always be the saddest death. ):

I'm not much a new gen person but when I saw this dead was to sad for me.

8 Loki (Avengers: Infinity War) 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.

At first, I wasn't too emotional about Loki's death. But after watching some more movies with him in it, I started to feel. Loki is such a charismatic person and very complex. RIP God of Mischief you will always be my favorite Marvel character

Ummm this should be 1 like it makes me cry to think about but maybe that's just cause I'm A huge Loki Stan. But I laughed when I saw Odin's was before Loki's like Odin was a jerk

Loki is one of my favorite Marvel characters so when I saw him die I thought he was faking it again but this time he actually died. I cried

My heart still aches. Here's to hoping he comes back in Avengers 4. Love you Loki, RIP

9 Spider-Man (Avengers: Infinity War)

This was the saddest death ever. I am slowly typing this because I have never seen spider-mans death but he is the best character I have ever seen I felt incredibly sad when I saw him on the list I was like:sbider-man dies!?

This is done perfectly with not only does he not want to die, but it reflects the melancholy of the move, knowing Thanos will win.

I don't feel so good

10 Harry Osborn (Spider-Man 3) James Edward Franco is an American actor and filmmaker. His first prominent acting role was the lead character Daniel Desario on the short-lived cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks.

Should be number 1..

The Contenders
11 Cyclops (X Men the Last Stand) Cyclops is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.
12 Gamora (Avengers: Infinity War)

I cried for about an hour. Gamora is one of my favorite characters! The fact the Thanos loves her. She looked so still when she died too. Ugh, I shall never forgive Thanos for killing so many people. Although you gotta admit Star Lord was HILARIOUS!

This should be higher on the list. It was a really heartbreaking death and the characters reactions were done so well. Thanos had to kill someone he loved for the stone, and while I hate him, I sympathized at that moment.

This was the first movie that made me cry. It was so sad and I imagined all the memories that she and Quill had and it made it even sadder!

13 Agent Coulson (Avengers)

He didn't even die!

14 Black Widow (Avengers: Endgame)

Natasha's death was so incredibly sad for me. When I watched Endgame, I couldn't even pay attention to the rest of the movie after her death, I was too busy crying and hoping she would come back. I've actually never re-watched Endgame since, because this was just so sad. The bond between her and Hawkeye was so strong, and his reaction to her death was heartbreaking. RIP Natasha, thank you for being such a role model to girls everywhere. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. We love you 3000

Okay. She deserves number one. Tony was REALLY SAD, but for me, she was and is my favorite superhero in history! She was the worst death than anyone. She didn't have a family, until she got to be part of the avengers. Clint and his family were her family too, and it is so cute how his kids loved her so much as to call her aunt ❤ When she died, I felt my heart crumble into a billion pieces. She didn't deserve it, and neither did Clint. She was like a sister to him. She was an epic bad***! When I realized they were going to vjormir, I felt like shouting at the screen. She deserves number one. As sad as Tony's death was, she was worse.

This killed my heart. The acting of Hawkeye ( Jeremy Renner) brought this to life. He fact that the two had only re united for a short while really made this sad. They argued over who would die, if that's not that sad, then what is?

We never really knew her and she sacrificed herself for the greater good... The last words she said: "It's okay" was so heartbreaking.

15 Bucky Barnes (Avengers: Infinity War) 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.

Steve lost him for the fourth time and that just makes it sadder

16 Groot (Avengers: Infinity War)
17 Iron Man (Avengers: Endgame) 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 in Tales of Suspense #39. In The Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

I was crying so hard in the theater.

18 Peggy Carter (Captain America Civil War) Margaret Elizabeth Carter, most known as Peggy Carter or Agent Carter, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She was one of the most prominent agents of the Strategic Scientific Reserve during and after the Second World War. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and was portrayed by Hayley Atwell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
19 Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy) Groot is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Larry Lieber and Dick Ayers, the character first appeared in Tales to Astonish #13. An extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature, the original Groot first appeared as an more.
20 Frigga (Thor: The Dark World)
21 Yinsen (Iron Man)
22 Doctor Strange (Avengers: Infinity War)
23 Meredith Quill (Guardians of the Galaxy)

Should be in the top 10.

24 Anthony (Ant-Man)

I have studied ants after Ant Man and the Wasp ( 2018 ) then I watched Ant Man ( 2015 ) Anthony's death made my hate for Dinsny expand.

This weirdly made me tear up, not the saddest, but still pretty emotional.

"I stepped on an ant after watching this movie and I started to break down crying,So yeah."

25 Scarlet Witch (Avengers: Infinity War)

She so deserves to be the first. She lost her country, her family, her brother, and then in Infinity War she lost Vision, whom she had to kill herself. Still not sad enough?

Loki death is good/sad too but Scarlet Witch left the most lasting impact be of all of the deaths she is the most powerful character to ever die, number two Ultron three Vision
