Most Underrated Marvel Characters that Deserve More Credit

The Top Ten
1 Hawkeye Clinton Francis "Clint" Barton, better known as Hawkeye, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a former special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he worked under the supervision of Phil Coulson. Known for his use of the bow and arrow as his primary weapon, ...read more.

I personally like him. Bow and arrows are cool. He needs more credit!

He's one of the most important avengers and yet he's always shadowed by the other OG 5

He’s always the butt of jokes with a lot of Marvel fans. I feel bad for this dude to be honest.

Probably the most underrated character in Marvel. Yeah, I’ll admit he has no powers but neither does Black Widow or Ironman without his suit. C’mon, give the man some credit.

2 Quicksilver 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 is my favorite character along with his twin sister! He deserves credit! He saved Hawkeyes life! I was so sad when he died. He didn't get much screen time! And I never got to hear someone say he was an avenger. ): Please give him more credit along with his sister. They are my most favorite characters in the super hero universe.

To be fair he is underrated because Marvel didn't know how to tell quicksilver's story

Quicksilver is way underrated, as he dies in his first movie. But Quicksilver is part of Scarlet Witch’s motivations to be an avenger as well as Hawkeye’s.

3 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.
4 Valkyrie

Now that she is the ruler of Asgard, she is going to be way more important in phase 4 than we think. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

5 Shuri

If she had gotten a bit more time with Vision she would have removed that stone from his head and prevented Thanos from getting all the stones. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

6 Ghost Rider Ghost Rider is the name of several fictional supernatural antiheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
7 Phil Coulson

He’s probably the reason the avengers joined together after his death. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

8 Captain Marvel Ms. Marvel is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Captain marvel is a lesbian. you heard it here from me first.

9 Nebula
10 Mantis Mantis is a fictional character, a superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Steve Englehart and Don Heck, and has been portrayed by Pom Klementieff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If Starlord hadn’t f-ed up the plan, Mantis would’ve been able to hold Thanos a bit longer and they would’ve been able to get the Gauntlet off. As well as providing funny jokes, she is way more powerful than she is made out to be. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

The Contenders
11 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.

He NEEDs attention

12 Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character has been known under the aliases Marvel Girl, Phoenix, and Dark Phoenix. ...read more.
13 Cyclops Cyclops is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.

He’s Cable’s father, sure he’s been a terrible father to Cable growing up but at least he’s willing to clean up his act when Cable grew up, be the dad Cable never had growing up. Cyclops also only gets attention in the comics but as far as I’ve seen, he just parties with his wife, Jean Grey like there’s no tomorrow! And he’s with Wolverine. But if anything, Cyclops should get a movie or even a Marvel show and actually spend time with his adult children, he also could be a grandpa for all we know, we’re just yet to see it.

14 The Wasp The Wasp is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee, Ernie Hart and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Tales to Astonish #44.

25 Forbush Man

Where do I begin?

Forbush-Man was a character created in the late 1960s for Marvel's parody series NOT BRAND ECHH. NOT BRAND ECHH was originally a parody of Marvel's own characters, although as it went on it branched out into taking jabs at DC (their rivals), non-superhero comics, movies, and a variety of other topics. Marvel actually had continuing characters in this series, which were mostly parodies of existing characters (for example: Charlie America, The Inedible Bulk, Mighty Sore, Scaredevil, etc.), with one exception: Forbush-Man.

Forbush-Man was based on Irving Forbush, who was a recurring gag in Marvel letters pages going back to 1955, from a short-lived comedy comic named SNAFU, which "Honest Irv" supposedly created (in reality there was no such person). In NOT BRAND ECHH, Irving Forbush is the gofer (not a typo-look it up) at "Marble Comics", who is frequently hassled by his insane Auntie Mayhem. Mayhem indirectly causes the creation of ...more
