Most Tragic Characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Thor should always stay on top. He watches his best friend and his brother die in front of him. Both of his brothers are dead. Had to live the love of his life.
It's so obvious that Thor has the saddest story. Compared to the two above him, he lost everything. He should be number 1!
Watched his home planet get destroyed, saw his father die, his best friend, his brother, AND half of his people
What a sad guy, our hearts will be with him as he, no doubt, loses more friends in the next few films
I always see Wanda as a very sensitive type, sensitive to loss, sensitive to criticism, sensitive to public opinion, sensitive to manipulation. That is her weakness, and the sad story is that she's been through all of it. Multiple times. Because of that she grew into someone in need of people who understand her and love her for WHO she is and not WHAT she is. All that out the way, she grew up in a country at war and the only sense of escapism was watching her favorite sitcom shows, then a stark bomb killed her parents, she and her brother were trapped for 2 whole days surrounded by guns and explosions, nothing to eat or drink and probably no sleep too. After that she and her brother spent most of their time joining a cause trying to get justice for the murder of their parents, her brother became her only sense of humanity. Then they got experimented on by hydra for who knows how long. She lost her entire city and her brother who was her only sense humanity, she was ready to die at the ...more
She was trapped under a bed for two days while her parents lay dead on the floor as she waits for a bomb to go off, She is torchered and undergoes painful experiments, then she watches her home country get destroyed, and then she causes a bunch of people to die because she was trying to save her friend's life and is blamed for it all, then she loses the love of her life and disappears for five years. And once she tries to get back what she lost, she brainwashes and entire town just to get the love of her life back and people think of her as a villain. If that isn't a tragic backstory/story then I don't know what is.
She was a survivor of gruesome and painful experiments. Then her brother, Quicksilver, died in Age of Ultron. Then the love of her life, Vision died TWICE in front of her.
" She lost her parents, and then she lost her brother, and then she lost Vision twice and once SHE did it.
Thanos would have Gamora and Nebula battle each other. Every time Nebula lost, Thanos would have a part of her replaced with robotic parts. Not only that, but Thanos called Gamora his favorite daughter right in front of her.
Watched his mother die, had to kill his father, watched his caretaker die, then the love of his life.
He saw his wife and daughter killed in front of him by the mad titan Thanos. He's a funny person but has a tragic backstory.
What species is Drax?
He grew up in he's brothers shadow his whole life. And nobody seemed to care if he was dead.
Poor guy. Stay strong Loki! We love you!
Loki lost twice as much as Thor. Think about it...
He lost his biological dad.
He lost his adopted dad.
He lost his adopted mom which meant everything to him.
He never met his biological mom.
He lost his home.
He lost half of the Asgardians.
He lost his life.😢
Let's hope it's not for real!
Cybernetically built in a lab, Rocket had to watch his best friend, Groot, die TWICE. Once in Guardians of the Galaxy and also when Groot dusted away in Infinity War.
Her home planet, including her mother and father, were killed by Thanos. Then she was kidnapped by Thanos and he claimed her his daughter.
Bucky has been through so much! I honestly think he should be in the top 3 on this list. He was brainwashed and tortured by Hydra for 70 years. He was forced to commit so many murders. Although he is free from Hydra now, he has to live with the guilt of what they made him do. I feel so bad for him
First of all, Bucky was part of the 107th when they got captured by HYDRA, who experimented on him until he was rescued by Steve. Then, he "died" when falling of the train, but was recovered by HYDRA and turned into a killer. They brainwashed and tortured him for almost 70 years, forcing him to kill over and over. When he recognizes Steve, they hurt him more and more until he escapes at the end of Cap: Winter Soldier. After trying to live a semi-normal life, he is framed for King T'Chaka's murder and is captured, where Zemo turns him back into the Winter Soldier. The only good thing that happened to him was him going to Wakanda to remove the effects HYDRA still had on him. But, he still has to deal with the overwhelming amount of grief and trauma that comes with being a murder weapon for decades.
He has the saddest past because he had to leave a whole generation behind
After the snap, Hawkeye lost his entire family, this in turn drove him insane to become the villain called Ronin, he was eventually snapped out of it by black widow, only to lose her later on to get the soul stone
Taken from her friends by the Kree to be used as a weapon to fight Skrulls who were simply trying to seek refuge.
I just saw it yesterday
The original Ant-Man, Hank Pym lost his wife while trying to stop a nuclear bomb. His wife went molecular and warped to the Quantum realm. Yes, they were reunited, but he has been greifing ever since.
Trained to be a killer by the KGB, and was ordered to be killed because she was forced into being an assassin
He already lost Uncle Ben, and in Endgame, he lost his mentor, Iron Man. There is a chance.
He would be in the top.
Once a member of the Asguardian Valkyrie, she was the only survivor from Hela's raid on Asgard.
She was taken by Ego and treated like a slave ever since she was a larva.
He lost all his people in the fight and ended up dying himself also knowing that lost. This characters whole arc hit me very hard and is in my opinion the most tragic character in the mcu.
