The strongest Avenger is Captain Marvel. She'll take Adam Warlock's place and defeat Thanos.

Yeah I'm interested in learning more about Captain Marvel. Adam Warlock is up there from what I've heard, so she must be really strong. If we're talking about all of Marvel beyond just Avengers, Jean Grey with Phoenix power probably wipes out almost all superheroes.

Nah... In this thread, we're just talking about the Avengers in the MCU movies.

(Yep, I'm that old. Although probably not as old as Ralph. )

Yep, and House of M. is beyond my knowledge base also.
The Hulk/Bruce is not complete without Betty Ross.

Too old for comics, says who.. I read novels, self-help books, books that relate to my career, etc. I enjoy a couple of comic graphic novels too. House of M is a great graphic novel. I would recommend and gift it to your nephew or grandkid after you are done. Scarlet Witch goes mental after losing her kids and alters reality. She pretty much creates an alternate reality for our superheroes.

If you want to know what Worldbreaker Hulk is then i recommend reading World War Hulk.

Yup. As much as I have loved much of the MCU, they continue to screw up the Hulk --- but then, Marvel Comics has been screwing up the Hulk for decades now. It's sad that they seem a little embarrassed by one of their all-time greatest heroes, so they keep turning him into a gimmick --- changing colors, changing personalities, turning him into Space Spartacus, turning him into a gumshoe detective.

Bruce Jones was the last writer who did a consistently great Hulk series --- and as soon as Marvel editorial started monkeying with it, he left.

I never got why some "adults" proceeded to "grow out of" the stuff they liked to read, the movies they liked to watch, and the music they enjoyed listening to.

"I watch documentaries now, and whatever she wants to watch."

"I enjoy listening to AM talk radio. I don't have much time for music, anyway."

"Comics? Seriously?"

Bruce Jones is one of the best writers to happen to comics, period. He's actual a double threat: writer and artist, but he's now more known for his stories than his visuals. He did write and draw an original horror concept for Marvel titled Arena, which was published as a Marvel Graphic Novel.

The Hulk smack down by Thanos was pretty disappointing. It was like a "Really, is that all you got? Well take this you weakling!"

I still maintain they relied too much on CGI as the expense of character building. Perhaps that is what the audience wants. Time will tell....pretty quickly really.

One thing they probably did right....threw so much at you that many will see it again to sort things out. I will see it again but not right away. Too many other interesting movies in the pipe for my movie/month budget.

Doctor Strange at his full comic book strength would also be vying for the strongest, but they only selectively show his abilities in the MCU. Original version of Drax was top tier strength too. To be honest, Hulk is probably consistently the strongest Avenger, but the way Thanos beat him down, he's out of contention, lol. It's a little hard to judge in the MCU movies.

Agreed. But then again, I'm old.

You guys are all wrong. Ant-Man is clearly the most powerful. Even the Hulk will buckle when Ant-Man shrinks small enough to zip up his urethra and then proceeds to make balloon animals with his vas deferens.
