There have been some fierce villains to take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes through the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A lot of them were even stronger than the heroes but ended up losing because good seems to always win in Marvel. For this reason, I have decided to do a top 5 strongest villains in the MCU.
First, I want to clarify what I mean by the strongest. I don’t actually mean who is physically the strongest. I mean, who would win in a fight one-on-one. For example, who would win in a showdown between Hela and Thanos? The winner would then be deemed the strongest. So without further of due, here’s the list.
5. Ego The Living Planet (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, 2017)
The Guardians of the Galaxy had their hands full in there their second outing. Ego The Living Planet, played by Kurt Russell, is exactly as the name says, a living planet. Everything on the surface of his world he has complete control over. He can change the layout out of his surface to anything he desires, and he can also create these energy type arms that he can use to attack you. If you are on his planet and sees you as a threat, good luck beating him because he will destroy you quickly.
He does have one flaw however, that makes him not higher on this list. At the center of his core is his heart, and if you destroy it, then he will die. This is precisely what the Guardians did in Vol. 2. Someone who is very durably could withstand his attacks until they get to his core. However the keyword in that is “withstand’ which is easier said than done.
