Why this discussion of “Who’s more powerful, Captain Marvel or Scarlet Witch?” is heating up?
It’s not new in Marvel. Marvel, being it the MCU or comics, had managed to bring together the famous superheroes and their storylines quite brilliantly. But what they have been able to do more exquisitely is bringing some of the greatest superheroes of Marvel against each other. Yes! Captain America and Iron Man, Thor and Hulk, etc.
have been against each other several times in Marvel comics as well as in the MCU. This not only brings some much-needed freshness and thrill behind the screen or on pages of comics, but also in the real world, among the fans of these characters. Fans like to discuss the strength of their favourite characters, and how the superhero they admire is more powerful than the other one of the same Universe.
Currently, as all the former most powerful superheroes of MCU are either permanently retired, or are drunken retired, we are left with only two most powerful and already well-established superheroes i.e. Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch.
Thus, the discussion of whom among Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch is the strongest in MCU seems quite natural. Another reason for the fans discussing over them is their comic book journeys. Both Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch have been one of the strongest superheroes in Marvel comics.
Scarlett Witch has been stronger than Captain Marvel in comics.
When we started with Scarlet Witch in the “Avengers Age of Ultron”, she could barely do anything more than telepathy and telekinetic. But slowly with the progress of her character in the MCU, we saw her powers growing gradually from barely anything to almost something Thanos also feared.
In “Avengers Infinity War”, while Thanos was using all Five Infinity Stones on Wanda, she was able to hold him as she destroyed the Mind Stone. Her powers saw an increase in “Avengers Endgame” when she made Thanos, the mad titan, fly without wings, and ripped his armour apart. We are seeing Wanda gradually possessing greater powers in MCU, but in Marvel’s comic universe, Wanda has always been one of the, and potently the most, powerful superhero.
As seen in “Avengers Disassembled”, Wanda on her own trashed Avengers to the ground with her uncontrollable powers and created another reality.
Captain Marvel has been the strongest hero in MCU.
MCU has always termed one superhero or another as strongest among its collection of heroes. For the longest times currently, Captain Marvel had been holding the position of being the strongest hero in MCU. She possesses the power of tesseract, a space stone, and that’s why she is a supreme cosmic being, able to fly in space and travel from one galaxy to another in moments.
While in her origin movie in MCU, we got introduced to her extra-terrestrial powers, in “Avengers Endgame” we saw her banging her head into ships of Thanos’s armies and taking them down.
Scarlet Witch is the strongest hero in MCU, stronger than Captain Marvel.
Indeed, we have seen Captain Marvel as the strongest hero in MCU in recent times. She could bring down the armies in space without showing any hint of exhaustion. But Scarlet Witch is also gradually making up for being the strongest hero and slowly shredding the covers from her powers.
Scarlet Witch had been the most powerful hero in Marvel comics, while Captain Marvel was considered lesser than many such as Thor, Hulk, Hercules, etc. Thus, as we are seeing MCU slowly drifting closer towards the comic book storylines for all of its characters, we could say that Scarlet Witch is going to be the most powerful hero in MCU.
“If you look at Endgame, Wanda Maximoff was going to kill Thanos. If he hadn’t desperately — that’s as scared as I’ve ever seen Thanos. And if he hadn’t said, ‘Decimate my entire team to get her off of me,’ I think she would’ve done it.” – Kevin Feige.
