A little over a month ago I wrote a post about my ten favorite superheroes and in that post, I had a list of my favorite Marvel and DC Comics heroes but after Avengers: Infinity War it’s time to reduce that list to only Marvel heroes and make some updates. Enjoy!
Okay, I didn’t even realize how much I liked Bucky until I saw him in the end-credits scene in Black Panther. I got giddily excited seeing him and that’s saying something. Throughout the films he has been in he has slowly begun to grow on me and now I can honestly say he is one of my favorite superheroes. Now was his return to Infinity War as grand as I imagined? Not really. But he still had plenty of time to be awesome and sometimes that’s all you need.
9. Scarlet Witch
I knew Scarlet Witch was powerful but I didn’t know she was that powerful?! Every time I see her again she keeps evolving and her power becomes all the more impressive and Infinity War definitely highlighted that evolution more than once. Don’t mess with Scarlet Witch because she is clearly no joke.
8. Black Widow
Black Widow is awesome, pure and simple, and the first scene that introduces her to Infinity War is clear proof of that. I love how far she’s come and how important of a member of the Avengers she has risen to because I remember when she was just the only female Avenger who has treated more like eye candy for the film rather than a hero just as vital to the superhero team as Captain America or Iron Man. Now that is not the case and I LOVE IT! Did I mention Black Widow is awesome? 🙂
7. Captain America
The first time I was really introduced to Captain America was in The Avengers and I have to admit, I didn’t like him very much. He was too serious, his suit was awful, and he just didn’t fit into the team to me. I hadn’t seen the first Captain America film and so I didn’t really understand where he was coming from in The Avengers film. And then after The Winter Soldier, I seriously warmed up to the shield-bearing hero. He was a good man, he was benevolent, and he stood up for his beliefs in a heroic way. I loved Captain America after that film and my fondness for the hero has only grown since.
I love the new and improved Captain America and I was so glad to see him return to the fight as he prepared his troops (the other Avengers) for battle. Go Cap!
6. Black Panther
Black Panther has been awesome since he debuted in Captain America: Civil War and his movie only made him that much cooler. I love his vibranium suit, I love his new abilities, and the compassionate King T’Challa makes the hero that much more lovable. Now he’s starting to have Captain America syndrome where he isn’t fitting in impeccably with the other Avengers as well as he could but he’s still early into the game and I’m sure (at least I hope) we’re just getting started with the story of this Wakandan warrior/king.
I would never thought Star-Lord could enter my top five favorite Marvel heroes but I have to admit, he’s actually really cool. In fact, I didn’t realize how cool he was until I got to see him truly stand out skill wise in Infinity War and he definitely earned my respect. Peter Quill, you are one bad space dude. *thumbs up*
4. Iron Man
Not only is Tony Stark lovably hilarious and sarcastic but his suit is so cool and it only keeps evolving. It seems that with every film he comes back with an upgraded suit and that’s why Marvel is so great. They allow characters to evolve and become better than they were the last time you saw them which keeps you invested in theif films. DC Comics hasn’t figured that formula but maybe one day they will.
I think it’s common knowledge that this new Spider-Man played by Tom Holland is ridiculously awesome. I thought I liked Spider-Man’s Iron Suit but after seeing the movie I really love it. It was also so much fun seeing young Peter Parker interact with the other characters in that potentially galaxy-ending event. Everyone was so uptight and he had such an innocent look at everything. At one time I wasn’t a Spider-Man person but I am proud to say I am now.
I honestly can not believe that my second favorite Marvel hero is Thor. If you had told me just a year ago that my second favorite Marvel hero would be Thor I would laugh hysterically because of the absurdity of that fact but it’s totally true. After Thor’s transformation in Thor: Ragnarok he really has begun to grow on me and now after Infinity War I am a legitimate Thor fan now and I couldn’t be happier about it. Thor rules! (Get it. Because he’s an Asgardian king. :))
1. Doctor Strange
OH, MY GOODNESS! When I wrote this post the last time I hadn’t seen Infinity War yet so I could only imagine how amazing he would be the next I saw him but he was SO much better than I could’ve hoped for. I’m sure there are some of you who haven’t seen the movie yet so I won’t spoil anything for you but he has undoubtedly become my favorite Marvel hero and probably will be for a long while. I LOVE Doctor Strange!
I hope you enjoyed this post and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day.
