We’ve ranked the films, we’ve reviewed their latest, and now we’re ranking the top ten characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From their television series to their films, Marvel has had more than one memorable character, and it’s those who have helped guided the universe in such a direction that 13 films deep and we still are actively invested in what happens to these characters. Polled to the staff and ranked with 1 being the highest and 10 being the lowest, here are the ten characters who made the cut. (And it was a long list of characters on the poll.)
Let us know in the comments below who your favorite character is and if you agree with our number one.
Honorable Mention: Peggy Carter
Because there wasn’t a chance in hell that the MCU’s biggest badass was being left off my list. She came close to the 10th spot so here we are, making exceptions. Fact is, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter is one the most layered and nuanced characters in the MCU and Atwell’s performance one of the very best. The MCU is richer for having her on board.
