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"

Please time travel them to the future

I cried when I saw he died in Logan

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.

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

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. Gj Gunn

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

3 Tony Stark (Avengers: 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.

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.

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

It was so sad seeing his daughter at the funeral, knowing the face of The Avengers would never come back. RIP Tony

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

Leader of the X-Men I wish you could come back

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 ...read more.

Father odin keep Asgard safe and save Thor

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 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

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

I was hysteric when he died. Can we at least have him in the top 6

8 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.

Love quicksilver bring him back

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.

Funny, cause he didn't actually die. All due respect to those who did lol.

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)

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!

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.

Thanos actually loved her, and what he did to her broke him from the inside

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

13 Agent Coulson (Avengers)

He didn’t even die!

Yes he came back to life,but technically he did die.I love that he shot Loki though,LOL

14 Black Widow (Avengers: Endgame)

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.

SHE DESERVES TO BE NO. 1. Her character development and ScarJo's acting makes her a wonderful character. Remember, she only relies on her wit and her badass skills to fight, and she's super smart too. She did not deserve to die like this.

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

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?

15 Bucky Barnes (Avengers: Infinity War) James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

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

16 Groot (Avengers: Infinity War)

Even sadder than when he died the first time

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 ...read more.

I was crying so hard in the theater.

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 ...read more.

He didn't die

James Gunn has confirmed that Baby/Teen Groot is a different character from the one in the original Guardians.

21 Meredith Quill (Guardians of the Galaxy)

It was even worse after Peter realized his dad killed her

Should be in the top 10.

22 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 ...read more.
23 Anthony (Ant-Man)

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."

Gave me a new look on ants

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.

24 Frigga (Thor: The Dark World)
25 Erik Killmonger (Black Panther)

Forgot he existed.
