7 Most Powerful MCU Characters After Phase 4

What Does the Scarlet Witch's Costume Symbolize?

7.) Thanos

Thanos In Avengers Endgame and in Infinity War

With how Thanos was able to take on all the Avengers using the Infinity Gauntlet, go toe-to-toe with the Hulk without taking advantage of the stones, and wipe out half of all life in the universe, surviving the damaging effects of the stones, it is easy to see why he belongs so high on this list.

The Mad Titan demonstrated himself to be truly formidable even without the stones, only becoming more of a threat with them. Granted, when weakened by the stones he went down without much of a fight, but the prime Thanos to the full might of dozens of heroes and a major sacrifice to beat.

6.) Scarlet Witch

Wanda Maximoff was always one of the most powerful characters in the MCU, as was shown when she almost managed to single-handedly take down Thanos in Endgame until his ships rained fire. She even managed to fend off Thanos while simultaneously destroying Vision’s Mind Stone in Infinity War.

Having since gotten access to the powers of the Darkhold in WandaVision, the former Avenger has gotten far more powerful in her new Scarlet Witch form. After all, she did take on the Illuminati and the entirety of Kamar-Taj herself in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

5.) Infinity Ultron

What If…? culminated with a battle between the Guardians of the Multiverse and a Variant of Ultron who managed to transfer his consciousness into Vision’s body, use the Mind Stone to kill Thanos, and take control of all six Infinity Stones, making him a formidable foe, to say the least.

The Infinity Ultron was so powerful the Watcher had to break his vow not to interfere with the timeline. Wielding the Infinity Stones, Ultron was able to destroy galaxies and casually tear through planets, he was only defeated by a virus that took over his programming.

4.) Kang the Conqueror

Kang the Conqueror was declared by Disney themselves as “the MCU’s most powerful villain to date,” noting his trustworthiness and ability to “rewrite existence and shatter timelines.” He even revealed that he has killed countless Avengers before, seemingly including the God of Thunder himself, Thor.

Jonathan Majors’ Kang may appear to have been taken down by Earth’s heroes in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania as he was expelled into the Multiversal Power Core, but he will almost certainly be back, more powerful than ever.

3.) Alioth

Alioth was introduced in the climactic episodes of Loki as the shark in the shark tank that is the Void. But long before the trans-temporal entity was consuming those who had been pruned by the TVA and abandoned at the end of time, Alioth was discovered by He Who Remains.

The 31st-century scientist Nathaniel Richards discovered Alioth during the Multiversal War and used them to put an end to the conflict by wiping out whole timelines and taking down countless Kang Variants in the process.

2.) He Who Remains

Alioth may be the being that served as the guardian of the Void and was used to win the first Multiversal War, but that has to place the one who was able to harness its power one step above – that being the Kang Variant, He Who Remains.

After eliminating countless timelines and Kang Variants, He Who Remains was able to script the whole Infinity Saga and condense reality to just one Sacred Timeline that he created the TVA to manage. That much control and mastery over the timeline undoubtedly make him one of the most powerful geniuses out there.

1.) Eternity

But Thor: Love and Thunder introduced the MCU’s true most powerful character yet, Eternity. The ancient being exists in its own realm accessed only through the Gates of Eternity, with the promise to grant any one wish of the first person to reach it, who proved to be Gorr the God Butcher.

Despite initially planning to use this wish to obliterate all the Gods in existence – which in itself would be an insane feat for Eternity to deliver on – Gorr ultimately uses it to resurrect his deceased daughter Love, which again marks an impressive showcase of power.

Eternity may be the most powerful being in the MCU’s history for now, but there will undoubtedly be more to come throughout the rest of the Multiverse Saga and beyond that will top them. For one, Avengers: Secret Wars will likely bring the debut of the all-powerful Beyonder, a nearly unparalleled cosmic entity.
