We have compared the list of superheroes & supervillains in the scale of Durablity, Energy, Fighting Skills, Intellegence, Speed & Strength. 

NOTE: The list is not completed. You will find some of the strongest superheroes or supervillains somewhere in the middle or top in the ranking. Suggestions will be most welcomed via comments.

Here’s a top 20 list of what we consider to be the strongest, and most intelligent Marvel characters of all time: 

Here Are The List Of 15+ Most Powerful Marvel Characters:

1. One-Above-All

Apparently responsible for the existence of all life in the Multiverse and possibly beyond, the One-Above-All is the master and sole superior of the cosmic overseer and arbitrator known as the Living Tribunal, whose faces, embodying equity, vengeance, and necessity respectively, are in perfect alignment with one another as it passes judgment.

As the supreme being within the Multiverse, the One-Above-All is omnipotent (and presents himself as all-powerful), omnipresent, and omniscient, and is above all cosmic powers and abstract entities, even the Living Tribunal and the Beyonders.

2. Captain Universe

Captain Universe is the identity which has been assumed by each of the hundreds of beings who have been empowered by the Uni-Power, a mysterious energy source originating from the extraterrestrial dimension known as the Microverse. The creation of the Microverse was engineered by the Makers, giant beings resembling Celestials, though the details of their involvement are uncertain.

3. Living Tribunal

The Living Tribunal was a vastly powerful conceptual being, one who had existed since the multiverse came into exsistene. The Living Tribunal's only superior was the One-Above-All (not to be confused with the Celestial that was known as the One Above All), an entity which was apparently responsible for all life in the multiverse, and possibly beyond, (this includes the Earth-616 Universe, Earth X, the Ultimate Universe, and all other alternate and potential realities).

Living Tribunal Stats:

4. Eternity

Eternity came into existence when the universe was formed (along with DeathOblivion, and Infinity) and spontaneously assumed the collective consciousness of all living things in the Universe. He is every living thing and every living thing is him; thus he controls everything in all plains of existence with the exception of the Living Tribunal, who maintains the cosmic balance of power. Eternity is the physical incarnation of time, whereas his sister Infinity represents space. Also, if Galactus ever dies or does not exist, the opposite of Eternity, Abraxas, would come into being. Eternity is guarded by Captain Universe.

Eternity Stats:

5. Phoenix Force

The Phoenix Force features prominently in the epic Dark Phoenix saga and has been associated frequently with Jean Grey from the X-Men franchise. It is a primal universal force and a powerful cosmic entity that can occupy various equally powerful hosts, most frequently Emma Frost, Rachel Grey, Jean Grey, and sometimes Professor X.

Because the Phoenix Force defeated Galactus single-handedly, it deserves a place on our most powerful Marvel character listicle. It sustains itself by absorbing all kinds of energy, including powerful solar flares as well as an entire planet’s life-force.

Phoenix Force Stats:


6. Galactus

Lots of fans are already convinced that Galactus (aka /ɡəˈlæktəs/) is the most powerful Marvel character of all time. The cosmic entity we now know as Galactus used to be a mortal being that had an insatiable desire for consuming entire planets to preserve his life force.

Galactus the Devourer of Worlds also has the technology to aid his unique biology and can take the physical shape of any species he has encountered in the universe.

Galactus Stats:

7. Death

Like Eternity, Lord Chaos and Master Order, and Infinity, Death is an abstract entity embodying the concept of the mortality and extinction, inasmuch as its opposite, Eternity, embodies life. Death and Eternity even regard themselves as siblings, having come into existence at the moment the universe was formed.

During the times that Death has manifested itself on the physical plane, it often takes the form of a skeletal female; however, the body Death chooses to manifest as can be in any form or size.

Death Stats:

8. Mephisto

A Class Two Demon or Hell-lord, Mephisto rules a fiery nether realm that he refers to as Hell or Hades, though it is neither the Biblical Hell nor Pluto's Olympian Hades. In the distant past, Mephisto became engaged to the lover of one of his former soldiers, then manipulated that demon into slaying his lover; the demon became Darklove, cursed to always perform the opposite of love.

Mephisto's realm includes the Arena of Tainted Souls where tainted souls are locked in perpetual combat. Mephisto delights in impersonating the Biblical Satan. Empowered by the souls of the damned, he often strikes deceptive bargains with the living. Mephisto takes particular interest in the souls of extremely powerful or exceptionally pure beings.

Mephisto Stats:

9. Zarathos

Over 21 millennia ago, the demon Zarathos preyed on mankind, a legend even amongst his own kind. Coveting the mystical Medallion of Power, he was opposed by the Blood, humanoid beings with innate magical abilities, and the Spirits of Vengeance, the only beings capable of facing Zarathos head on. They united against him, but a Blood faction dubbed the Fallen came to worship Zarathos, strengthening the demon by channeling mankind's negative energy into him, and he briefly obtained the Medallion.

The Spirits of Vengeance sacrificed themselves to seal Zarathos essence alongside theirs within the Medallion, which the Blood then shattered. To prevent the pieces ever being united, they were given to two separate human families, who were watched over by the Blood Caretaker.

Zarathos Stats:

10. Stardust

Stardust is one of the oldest beings in the universe. It is a user of the Power Cosmic and was once a faithful Herald of Galactus.

As Herald for the world devourer, Galactus, Stardust found suitable worlds for her master to consume. She performed above her master's expectations as she would track down and destroy any inhabitants of a world that happened to escape the destruction, wiping out any trace of their civilization.

Stardust Stats: 

11. Odin

Odin (aka the All-Father) is the king of Asgard and Thor’s father. He is widely regarded among fans as the most powerful Marvel character there is on account of him being immortal as well as for his ability to conjure and magically manipulate different energies to achieve a variety of effects.

Odin is also able to enhance his already formidable powers by drawing upon the pool of strength provided by the entire Asgardian populace.

Odin Stats:

12. Blackheart

Centuries of murder saturated the Christ's Crown area with evil until the attempted rape of a young girl named Sarah drew Mephisto to create a “son”, Blackheart, from the accumulated wrongs. Slaying both rapist and victim, Blackheart explored the nature of evil under his father's tutelage, clashing with and failing to corrupt Daredevil and Spider-Man. Mephisto and Blackheart soon drew Daredevil, Brandy Ash, the genetically engineered Number Nine, and Inhumans Gorgon, Karnak, and Ahura into Hell.

BlackHeart Stats:

13. Thanos

He is perhaps the most evil, bloodthirsty, and powerful villain in the universeso powerful that religious sects have worshipped him as a god. His enemies include nearly every Super Hero in existence. He is obsessed with Goddess Death and has waged genocidal campaigns in an attempt to placate her. Most famously, he has attempted to conquer the universe by wielding the Infinity Gauntlet. He is the Mad Titan.

Thanos Stats:

14. Hulk

Scientist Bruce Banner’s inner turmoil transforms him into the mean, green rage machine called the Hulk. The Hulk is one of the strongest beings ever. His physical strength is potentially limitless, given that it grows exponentially as his emotional distress grows. His super human power makes him a terrifying combatant that not many can best.

Hulk Stats:

15. Thor

The very skies tremble in his presence. He commands the mystical hammer Mjolnir to protect Asgard and Earth. He is the son of Odin, Prince of Asgard. He is the God of Thunder. He is Thor.

Thor Stats:

16. Grandmaster

En Dwi Gast (aka the Grandmaster) is a descendant of a race of ageless Elders from across the universe and is sometimes referred to as the most powerful Marvel character thanks to his mastery of different games of skill & chance from across several civilizations.

He is an ancient and eternal entity that can’t die or be killed. Moreover, the Grandmaster can revive the dead. He is also incredibly powerful & intelligent and has many other physical & supernatural characteristics.32

Grandmaster Stats:

17. Hercules

This Marvel character was inspired by the popular Heracles from Greek mythology. Hercules is a perennial Avengers team member and one of the strongest heroes on our Marvel characters list on account of him being the son of Zeus, more than 3,000 years old, and incredibly strong.

Hercules is way stronger than the Hulk and Thor put together, as he once dragged the entire Manhattan Island along with its inhabitants which weighed in at approximately 99,000,000,000 tons. Besides his unbelievable strength, Hercules can also survive unaided in space and can withstand nova cosmic blasts.

Hercules Stats:

18. Skaar

This next fictional hero on our Marvel characters list is often featured as a supporting character for the Incredible Hulk. Skaar is actually the Hulk’s son from his brief affair with Caiera the extraterrestrial while he was marooned on Planet Hulk.

Skaar makes it onto our most powerful Marvel character listicle because of a healing factor that is more rapid than Wolverine’s and which has helped him to survive falls to earth from outer space. Furthermore, he once cracked the Juggernaut’s armor with a single punch.29

Skaar Stats:

19. Magus

Magus is essentially a techno-organic entity from an extraterrestrial civilization. Many Marvel fans regard him as Adam Warlock’s evil version especially because they possess similar powers. The Magus makes it onto our Marvel characters list on account of his super strength, stamina, reflexes, and durability. He can also split a planet into two when he’s at his most powerful.

The Magus can breathe unaided and do battle in space. Moreover, he has enhanced shape-shifting abilities which allow him to take the size, color, and shape of just about any physical substance he touches.29
