They don’t call them Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for nothing. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’re counting down the Top 10 Powerful Avengers.

For this list, we’re looking at the strongest members of the Marvel Universe’s biggest superhero team, the big guns that the team deploys to take down their biggest threats.

#10 Wonder Man


While he originally joined the team with the intention of helping destroy them from the inside, this hero has since become an asset to the group. After being bombarded with ionic radiation, he initially gained superhuman strength and stamina. Later on, however, his powers caused his body to change, giving him the ability to transform into pure ionic energy. When in this form, he gains a host of new abilities including flight, energy manipulation, and functional immortality given that he’s a being of pure energy. His time with the Avengers has had some rocky moments, but his abilities make him a valuable member of the team when he’s on the roster.

#9: Vision


This incredible android has a host of abilities packed into his red and green frame, easily putting him among the most versatile and potentially dangerous Avengers. Being an android, he possesses intelligence and analytical capabilities far beyond those of humans, but when a problem arises that intelligence can’t solve, his ability to alter his molecular density makes him a force to be reckoned with in a fight. This unique power allows him to phase through solid matter or become an ultra-dense immovable object at will. Just don’t call him dense to his face, especially since he can also fire a powerful laser from his forehead.

#8: Doctor Strange


Being the Sorcerer Supreme is a full-time job, so this spellcasting hero doesn’t always have time to help the team out with whatever alien invasion or time-traveling despot they’re dealing with this week. But when he can make some room in his schedule his mastery of the mystic arts come in pretty handy. In addition to his encyclopedic knowledge of all things mystical, his seemingly endless supply of spells and incantations for every occasion makes him a potential solution to any problem. Magic being what it is, there’s a spell for almost anything so long as you break out the right dusty tome of ancient, forbidden knowledge.

#7: Quasar


Don’t let the fact that he used to have a mullet fool you. Underneath that fabulously dated ‘do is a cosmic powerhouse who’s helped the Avengers several times. Thanks to a pair of gauntlets known as the Quantum Bands, this former SHIELD agent has access to a host of abilities including flight and the power to create energy constructs of almost any shape and function. He uses these bands in his role as Protector of the Universe, a mantle bestowed upon him by a cosmid deity known as Eon. Despite looking like a Lovecraftian tree stump, Eon’s purpose is to safeguard life within the universe, and he created the quantum bands to do just that.

#6: Hyperion


While not a denizen of the Marvel universe originally, this hero has since made it his home and become one of its mightiest champions. The only survivor of a dying alien world, he was sent to Earth as an infant, he was adopted by a human father and became his world’s mightiest champion. But tragedy struck again when his entire reality was destroyed, forcing him to relocate to the Marvel Universe. With incredible strength, speed, endurance, nigh-immortality, flight and a variety of enhanced senses, he’s a powerhouse in the truest sense. Just whatever you do, don’t call him a “super man” unless you want DC’s lawyers at the door.

#5: Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)


While she began her career as Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers has a new title. Look at her… look at her! She’s the captain now! After an accident involving the Kree hero Mar-Vell, Danvers was transformed into a Kree-Human hybrid with access to numerous abilities including flight, super-strength and extremely powerful photonic energy blasts she can emit from her hands, abilities she quickly put to use as an Avenger. Combine her powers with her take-no-prisoners attitude and extensive combat training and you’ve got one of the mightiest Avengers out there.

#4: Sentry


Even if it might be hyperbole, you don’t mess around with someone who’s said to have “the power of a thousand exploding suns”. Another hero who bears a resemblance to a certain DC comics icon, this golden guardian was actually active in the Marvel Universe for decades before being forced to erase all memory of his very existence from the world at large. After re-emerging to resume his life of heroism, he quickly proved to be one of the most powerful heroes out there, with strength, speed, flight and the ability to manipulate light. Unfortunately, his mental instability held his effectiveness back from what it once was, but he remains one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe.

#3: Scarlet Witch


While her MCU counterpart may be a telekinetic with some psychic abilities thrown in, the comics version of this longtime Avengers is substantially more powerful. In the comics, Wanda’s abilities allow her to alter probability, which when used correctly can reshape reality itself. This allows her to potentially remake the world as she sees fit, a power that can get pretty terrifying when you consider her sometimes severe mental instability. On one occasion, a mental break resulted in Wanda altering the entire world so that mutants were the dominant species, a pickle the Avengers had to undo themselves. Thankfully she has her good days as well as bad.

#2: Hulk


The ability to fire bolts of cosmic energy or reshape reality itself is all well and good, but sometimes the best asset in a fight is being really big, really mad, and really, really good at smashing. This founding member of The Avengers embodies all of these things, making him one of the team’s go-to powerhouses, especially given that the upper levels of his strength have yet to be determined. He may not be the most versatile or subtle member of the team, but when it comes to hitting the bad guy so hard they wind up in the next solar system, he’s the best there is.

Before we reveal our top pick, have a look at these honorable mentions.

Hercules

Captain America

Valkyrie

#1: Thor


And when a colossal green rage monster doesn’t cut it, just go for broke and throw your resident god at the bad guy. The Norse god of Thunder has been a member of The Avengers since the team’s very first mission when his villainous brother Loki made the Hulk go on a rampage. Thankfully the Odinson was able to help out, and he’s been a stalwart member of the team ever since. Thanks to his Asgardian lineage and enchanted hammer Mjolnir, he possesses incredible strength and endurance, as well as the ability to summon storms and hurl lightning bolts at his foes. In the most literal sense, he’s a real force of nature.
