The Top 10 Strongest Marvel Characters To Ever Have Been Created

I sat back one night thinking about the strongest superheroes in Marvel Comics. As I sat, I got to wondering about what defines strength and how exactly to classify it. I mean, if Superhero A is strong but uses forces outside of this world (Phoenix Force) to become stronger than Superhero B who uses forces within this world, can the two be classified together?

After about one hour I realized that I had been overthinking the matter and drew the conclusion that it doesn’t really matter how they are powered, if they’re strong, they’re strong.

After coming to that conclusion, I began creating a list of the ten strongest Marvel characters no matter their background…and here it is.

The Top 10 Strongest Marvel Characters To Ever Have Been Created.

10. Juggernaut


Juggernaut Origin

Don’t step in front of the Juggernaut if he gets any sort of momentum. Even if you had the strength of an entire army, you’ll likely not be able to stop him.

Juggernaut is the stepbrother of Professor Xavier and unlike his brother, isn’t a mutant. Instead, his power derived from the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak. With the Gem, he is given strength that allows him to stand tall against the likes of the Hulk and the aforementioned forward momentum that just can’t be stopped. 

The Juggernaut is so strong that more often than not, the only way for the X-Men to bring him down is to pull his helmet off and attack his mind. 

Think about that.

A team comprised of the world’s most powerful mutants struggle to stop him.

9. She-Hulk


She-Hulk Origin

One day after being shot, Jennifer Walters found herself in a hospital in desperate need of a blood transfusion. Unfortunately, no one in the hospital carried her blood except for her visiting cousin, Bruce Banner. Initially afraid of what might happen to her, Bruce was reluctant to give blood. Unfortunately, because no one around had her type, he was left without a choice. The transfusion worked and Jennifer’s life was saved, albeit with a small setback. 

Because she received blood from Bruce Banner, his blood reacted with hers causing her to change into a milder version of the Hulk. Dubbed the She-Hulk, Jennifer instantly became one of the strongest Marvel characters. As one of the strongest Marvel characters, She-Hulk is the only female character on this list. 

8. Skaar


Skaar

Skaar is the son of the Hulk and as such, possesses many of the same attributes. This means that he’s incredibly strong, durable, possesses some degree of healing, is fire and heat resistant, and, just like his famous father, gets stronger as he becomes angrier.

And all this is only if he’s off of his home planet. If he’s on his home planet, he can drain it’s power, thereby increasing his strength. 

Let’s put the context of his strength this way…Skaar is so strong that all he wanted to do was fight and kill the Hulk.

7. Gladiator


Gladiator Origin

Gladiator is the perfect example of what happens if you let your ego get the best of you.

On any normal day, Gladiator is strong enough to stand up to the Phoenix Force. However, on any normal day, he’s only showcasing a small portion of his actual strength. If he wants to put all of his strength on full display, Gladiator must increase his confidence. With his confidence running higher than a person on an acid trip, his strength is so much that it actually becomes immeasurable.

If knowing that his strength is immeasurable doesn’t satisfy you, know this. In one encounter with the Fantastic Four, Gladiator was actually able to lift the Baxter Building right off the ground. 

Right off the ground…

6. Sentry 


Sentry Origin

For years, fans of comic books wondered when Marvel would create their equivalent to Superman. For years they wondered if anyone in Marvel would ever be able to stand toe-to-toe against DC’s Kryptonian. And for years they wondered why Marvel didn’t answer their questions. 

Well, after years on wondering, Marvel finally answered the call.

Sentry is Marvel’s Superman. As such, he has more powers and strength than he knows what to do with. Not only is he capable of incredible feats of strength, but he can also bend time, teleport, manipulate the weather, heal from practically anything, is invulnerable, and so much more.

To say that Sentry is overpowered just isn’t enough. He’s become one of those characters that Marvel just doesn’t know what to do with. After all, what would you do with a character who has no rival?

5. Thor


Thor

Throughout the entirety of the MCU, there is a running joke as to who is stronger between Thor and the Hulk. Many would argue that the answer is the Hulk, and if you’re one of those people, hold on.

Thor has saved entire civilizations, fought the likes of Hela, Surtur, Mangog, Loki, Beta Ray Bill, and done so with ease. His strength is so much that he has lifted the Midgard Serpent as if it was nothing more than a worm. 

But that isn’t all.

The force in which he uses his hammer, Mjolnir, at is enough to shatter entire planets. Thor is one of the strongest Marvel characters, period.

4. Hulk


Incredible Hulk

In truth, I believe that Thor and the Hulk are equally strong so don’t read too much into the fact that he’s ranked higher here. Hulk has spent the better part of his career telling everyone around him that he is the strongest there is. 

And he might be right.

As a man who isn’t a God, Hulk is arguably the strongest mortal in comics. Not only is his strength incredible, but he actually gets stronger the madder he becomes. This means that as his adrenaline increases, Hulk is able to lift more, do more, and hit harder.

Remember, this is the same being that one-punched a Chitauri Leviathan in 2012s Avengers movie. The Hulk has been a valuable part of the Avengers since their beginning not because they need him, but because they’d rather not fight against him on the battlefield.

3. Mangog


Mangog Origin

Mangog has the strength of, and I quote, a “billion, billion beings”. That being said, his strength is so considerable that he puts Thor to shame. He draws his strength from hate and therefore, as long as hate exists, Mangog will be forever powerful. He can also manipulate magic for energy projection and is able to shape shift.

When battling Thor, the Son of Odin usually uses less than traditional methods to defeat Mangog. In fact, in one instance, Thor attaches the beast to Mjolnir and hurled them both at the Sun. 

2. Hercules


Hercules Is Coming To The MCU Rumors

When you’re modeled after a literal God, you’re bound to wind up on this list. 

Hercules is the son of Zeus and as mythology has shown, is one impressive individual. Hercules can stand next to just about anyone in Marvel and decide whether or not they live or die. This is so much that during an encounter with Thor, he picked up all of Manhattan and dumped it back down to the ground.

Hercules is an Avenger, a God of Olympus, a Defender and so much more. His services are in such high demand that he should probably hire a secretary to arrange his schedule. 

1. Blue Marvel


Blue Marvel

Blue Marvel is beyond strong. Quite simply, he belongs on this list because A) he has the strength that very few have and B) was nearly able to split the moon in two with a single punch.

Adam Brashear, Blue Marvel, was given his super strength, among other things, after he was caught in a reactor explosion. In addition to his strength, Blue Marvel is also as close to invulnerable as possible, can fly, manipulate molecules, and project energy. 

But that’s not all.

He also has superhuman speed, reflexes, stamina, and senses. In short and like Sentry, there isn’t too much that he can’t do.

And that’s it. The Top 10 Strongest Marvel Characters To Ever Have Been Created. Thoughts? Did I miss any? Who would make your strongest Marvel characters list?

Cheers,
