A little over a month ago I wrote a post about my ten favorite superheroes and in that post, I had a list of my favorite Marvel and DC Comics heroes but after Avengers: Infinity War it’s time to reduce that list to only Marvel heroes and make some updates. Enjoy!
Okay, I didn’t even realize how much I liked Bucky until I saw him in the end-credits scene in Black Panther. I got giddily excited seeing him and that’s saying something. Throughout the films he has been in he has slowly begun to grow on me and now I can honestly say he is one of my favorite superheroes. Now was his return to Infinity War as grand as I imagined? Not really. But he still had plenty of time to be awesome and sometimes that’s all you need.
9. Scarlet Witch
I knew Scarlet Witch was powerful but I didn’t know she was that powerful?! Every time I see her again she keeps evolving and her power becomes all the more impressive and Infinity War definitely highlighted that evolution more than once. Don’t mess with Scarlet Witch because she is clearly no joke.
8. Black Widow
Black Widow is awesome, pure and simple, and the first scene that introduces her to Infinity War is clear proof of that. I love how far she’s come and how important of a member of the Avengers she has risen to because I remember when she was just the only female Avenger who has treated more like eye candy for the film rather than a hero just as vital to the superhero team as Captain America or Iron Man. Now that is not the case and I LOVE IT! Did I mention Black Widow is awesome? 🙂
7. Captain America
The first time I was really introduced to Captain America was in The Avengers and I have to admit, I didn’t like him very much. He was too serious, his suit was awful, and he just didn’t fit into the team to me. I hadn’t seen the first Captain America film and so I didn’t really understand where he was coming from in The Avengers film. And then after The Winter Soldier, I seriously warmed up to the shield-bearing hero. He was a good man, he was benevolent, and he stood up for his beliefs in a heroic way. I loved Captain America after that film and my fondness for the hero has only grown since.
I love the new and improved Captain America and I was so glad to see him return to the fight as he prepared his troops (the other Avengers) for battle. Go Cap!
