Top 10 Marvel Comic Characters Who Need To Make Their MCU Debut

Marvel Studios has opened up the multiverse in their cinematic universe with the MCU Disney+ series, Loki. This multiverse will help different variants of existing characters to show up in the MCU.

This is already set to happen in the upcoming Phase 4 MCU movies like Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder and more. The rumoured variant of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man venture and the rumour of getting Tony Stark in Doctor Strange 2 has the potential for these characters to come back.

Marvel has already announced that characters from Fantastic Four, Blade and Moonknight will be upon new characters who are not yet announced in the MCU. Kevin Feige, who is the MCU head, has announced that X-Men and Fantastic Four are in the pre-development phase.

Wonder Man

This character was introduced as the supervillain but he transitioned into a hero/anti-hero character. Simon Williams, a.k.a. Wonder Man made his debut back in 1964’s Avengers Vol. 19. The character was given ionic power by Helmut Zemo to infiltrate the Avengers and lead them into an ambush. But he later had few side effects of the experiment and had a change of heart to help the heroes.

Wonder Man’s powers include super strength, super senses, super speed, and super agility. Furthermore, the “ionic energy-based” abilities enable him to be essentially immortal, with regenerative healing.

Hercules

Hercules is a character based on real-life mythological origin, just like Thor. The Asgardian God is based on Norse mythology while Hercules is a legend in Greek. In the original mythology, Hercules was Zeus, King of the Olympian Gods.

The Olympians’ powers include “true immortality,” super strength, super speed, as well as super agility despite his bulky appearance. According to the “Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Vol 1 5 (1983)” comic issue, Hercules is one of the strongest superheroes in Marvel Earth-616.

Hyperion

Hyperion is almost a Marvel version of Superman/Clark Kent. He is the last surviving member of the Eternals family raised by the Milton family. He grew up as Mark Milton and then joined a news organization (located in Cosmopolis) as a cartoonist. Mark also had a romantic relationship with a reporter, just like Clark’s relationship with Lois Lane in the DC Detective Comics.

This character is portrayed as a villain, hero and anti-hero. Hyperion’s powers include super strength, super speed, super agility, “atomic vision” and regenerative healing.
The arrival of Hyperion on Earth means the transfer of power levels within the MCU.

Beyonder

This is a multiverse creature from the Beyond realm, a descendant of an ancient alien race called the Beyonders. This character is one of the main villains in the “Secret Wars” comic book series(1984).

Beyonder is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe after OneAboveAll. This creature has unlimited power and the ability to distort reality, which may cause catastrophic events in the MCU’s multiverse.

Mistress Death

Death or Mistress Death is as old as the universe; the essence from the “realm of death”. The dimension only applies to the deceased.

In Thanos Rising #4 (2013), Thanos impressed death and seduced Mad Titan. Because of this, fans previously expected death to appear in the original Avengers: Infinity War MCU. In Deadpool / Death 1998, Deadpool was obsessed with death, during Deadpool vol. 2. #6364 (Feb. May 2002) The two characters developed a romantic relationship.

Nighthawk

This character has multiple versions or “variants” in the comics. In the main universe (Earth 616) is Kyle Richmond who is the Nighthawk, and has turned from a supervillain to a superhero.

Since the development of the serum, Nighthawk has had a variety of physical abilities that can be manifested and he can replicate himself at night. His skills include super strength, stamina, agility, and vision.

Legion

Although fans already have a good show for this character, the introduction of the Legion on FX by the MCU will make him one of the most powerful mutants.

Legion or David Haller is the son of Charles Xavier. Charles Xavier is an Omega-level mutant with telepathy, psychic, and reality distortion abilities. In X-Men: Legacy Vol 2 #5 (2013), David mentioned that he has at least 200 personalities in his mind, which is why he is nicknamed “legion”.

Daken

Daken (also known as Akihiro) is the son of Wolverine and his Japanese wife Itsu. In the comics, Itsu was killed by the Winter Soldier while she was pregnant with Akihiro.

Romulus took Decon from Yijin’s lap and trains him to be a merciless killer. In The Dark Avengers Volume 1 (2009), Deakin joined Norman Osborne’s Dark Avengers as Dark Wolverine. Akihiro has all the skills of his father, including regenerative healing, three retractable bone claws on the wrist, and enhanced senses.

Sentry

The comic revealed that Canada and the United States were creating a project similar to the Super Soldier copy of Sentinel in 1947. Ten years later, Robert Reynolds took the Golden Sentinel Serum and gave it the power of a million explosive suns. Sentinel’s photodynamic abilities allow him to manipulate superpowers, molecules and shapes, immortality, speeding, and more. According to the 2018 Sentry Vol 3 #5, he is one of the most powerful characters in the world.
