    With over 20 movies and counting making up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve seen so many of our favorite superheroes on the big screen. From Captain America’s superhuman strength to Captain Marvel’s photon blasts, we’ve also seen plenty of incredible powers on display, but despite all of this, comic book fans are still waiting to see how some powers will be used in the MCU. Today, we’re going to take a look at some superpowers MCU characters have, but for some reason, never use.
    Captain Marvel is known for having some absolutely ridiculous powers. In fact, Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, said that she’s the most powerful character in the entire MCU. We’ve seen some of those powers on display in her standalone movie, specifically when she punched a spaceship, but believe it or not, she has even more powers that make her stronger.
    Iron Man is known for not having any superpowers in the MCU, even though being a genius probably is one, but for a short time in the comics, he did have a power that may surprise you and, of course, it involves his Iron Man suit and advanced tech. Even Thor has a secret power that may very well make him every linguist’s best friend and don’t get us started on some of these other powers that, if used, could’ve changed the MCU forever.
    There are so many other unused superpowers our favorite superheroes have, so enjoy the video and don’t forget to subscribe to CBR for more MCU content.

      This is "groots' son.. not the groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. That "Groot" in Guardians of the Galaxy died. That's a legitimate fact from the Russo brothers.

      @CBR.... Might wanna rethink your opening statement for #13, go watch Film Theory. Instead of killing Thanos, Ant Man would've just killed himself. That.... Area of the body is actually rather tough, and given thanos is a super being this would've been even more so. Ant Man would've been crushed inside the mad titan.
      You're welcome for this odd and disgusting fact. Go watch Film Theory for the full explanation as they do a good job of explaining why this would happen as it is backed up with actual science used in our real world.

    Marvel had "Leaked" that in Phase Four Ant man will be revealed to be Gay and then he will take out the Big Bad by Expanding in his rectum.
    Unless "The Big Bad" also turns out to be Gay and they we have a Problem.
    Could be some really Funny Groans & Moans though ...

    Comic abillitys and MCU abilltys are 100% different due to the fact they are different universe
    Mind you, wanda is different here than in comic
    Wanda is powered by one of the infinity stones
    Comics she is a average mutant
    Vision also is a passive being
    Its never said cap doesnt have better sight
    Doctor Strange is to egotistic to learn stuff like that
    Captain marvel probably wouldnt try to do that since most or her abillitys are not like that
    Thank you if you read this

    I don't think these people understand what NEVER means. Half of these things are powers that the MCU characters DON'T HAVE and the other half are abilities that they USE IN THE MOVIES. Cap has supersight, but the guy literally describes HOW HE USES IT.
    And just because the comic book versions have a power in a very specific comic doesn't mean their MCU Counterparts have those powers. This is so dumb and misleading.

    if we ever talked about whos the strongest avenger, obviously we aren't taking away hammers/suits/shields/legs/arms/anger or anything that is part of their power they have or had that's part of their identity. All of them at their most powerful is how they should all be ranked. Only makes sense. A knocked out hulk could be beaten up by a kid but does that make the kid "stronger" than hulk? Hell no Lolol :D

    I think that any and all powers should be used at any given time on any planet or in any universe by all characters. Especially there stand alone films. It would make more excitable and closer to the comics that were issued previously. Furthermore, we know that some powers have to be discovered and trained, that's fine and dandy. Also, seeing the MCUs characters grow into there own would be great for viewers especially those who are new to marvel period. Therefore, making for a more interesting sequels background stories etc please take this into major prioritized consideration. Thank a real fan khalifah wali...

    ooo they gave that iron man power thats seen in the comics to Ultron in the movie because he was able to tap all tech in the world and since iron man made ultron it makes sense

    The people saying ant man can grow inside thanos and pop em. You are telling me our weak human bodies are stronger than the Mad titan who without the glove can go blow to blow with the hulk ? This dudes skin and organs are probably stronger than any mental we have. ant man would be crushed to death by thanos rectum tightening up .

    How about wolverine's Mutant fusion power which allows for two kinds things. 1. Fusion objects with his body. .2 the ability to absorb and fusing multiple Mutant power's in his body or outhers who been infused with DNA .now others. Whould say he doesn't have such a power well actually his does and it been mentioned in wolverine xmen origins now remember this wolverine and saber tooth are brothers this important because they have the same powers expect one that striker was after the same i mentioned earlier in this. Conversation there go if want profe then watch wolverine X-Men origins

    endgame sucks as a movie. The writing is shit, this is what happens when you let people who have no idea or concept of how these characters are supposed to be, write for them. The result is a special effects driven barf bag of a movie.

    I know you guys are padding the time to get a certain length on your videos, but you can't keep putting obvious bs up here. Vision couldn't phase after he was stabbed by that staff. He said as much during the ambush scene when he was trying to convince Scarlet Witch to run.

  • The Child Support has arrived.

    Doubling the universes resources wouldn't do much as it wouldn't last long, soon it would go back to the normal amount, nor would erasing half the universe, there's no way to fix what Thanos wanted to fix. Also making the resources infinite would just kill everyone, now if you could get the stones to allow all resources currently available to automatically regenerate whenever they're used, then maybe.
