We have all been mesmerized by the magical powers of fictional characters during our childhood. Whereas some were inspired by Spider-man’s ability to jump and walk on three-dimensional surfaces, others were amazed by the physical strength of Hulk. Therefore, the very question regarding the best Marvel superhero may be enough to raise a dispute amongst die-hard fans. Surely, classifying only one of these characters as the “top-rated” one would be unfair to others.
Here is a list of the most popular Marvel figures along with a brief description of their unique characteristicsW
The character of Captain Marvel was projected to evolve after Air Force pilot Carol Danvers was introduced to an alien military race who trained her in their domain and granted her superpowers.
She is particularly favorite amongst the masses due to being the first female Marvel superhero.
Of course, we all detest being bitten by a spider. However, this is the exact incident which led the character Peter Parker to acquire extraordinary abilities.
Being an ordinary person who gained abilities such as clinging on to surfaces, swiftness and early detection of upcoming danger in the aftermath of being bitten by a radioactive spider, this character gained immense popularity amongst children and teenagers.
One reason for its popularity might be that teenagers going through a transitional phase in life are able to resonate with him, because on the flip side of Spider-man is a shy teenager who has been hit by tragedy, is bullied at school and has multiple problems going on in his personal life.
Once he gains the superpowers, Parker takes it upon himself to help others and ultimately become an avenger.
Whenever creating an analogy with respect to physical strength, most parents use the example of Hulk to get their children to finish their meals.
Though Hulk may not be the most compassionate of characters, he is definitely the one to come to rescue in dire situations. The most amusing attribute of this character is that it becomes more powerful and vigorous when angry.
Being portrayed as an alter-ego of another fictional character, Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, the role of the Hulk is a perfect balance between science fiction and fantasy.
Favorite amongst the adventure-loving viewers of Marvel series, the character of Iron Man shields himself with an armored suit while carrying out activities to protect the world.
The character is shown to evolve through a tragedy involving the kidnap of a business tycoon residing in America. This fictional business person is also a scientist, philanthropist and an investor. Tricking his captors by creating armor instead of destructive tools as instructed by them, the magnate Tony Stark manages to escape, and later adds advanced technology and weapons to his armored suit. He then embarks on a mission to protect the world under the identity of Iron Man.
Wolverine can be classified as one of the most popular, if not the best Marvel superheroes. Being subject to illness and weakness in childhood, Wolverine quickly recovered following a change of location that was led by a series of tragic events. However, he evolved into an individual possessing super powers such as the extended ability to hear and see distant objects (like animals), and physical strength enough to shatter unbreakable items like steel and lift heavy weights. He even develops a quick healing ability that makes him less apprehensive of wounds.
These unique capabilities that make Wolverine a mutant, particularly trigger viewers’ curiosity and interest in this superhero.
For those interested in suspense stories, Hawk Eye may be the best Marvel superhero. Information about this character is limited. This may be an intentional tactic by Marvel Inc. to develop a harmony with the character`s image as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The fact which makes this character so attractive is that despite being coached and taught by criminals, he becomes inspired by heroes and joins their force to fight evil.
For the reason mentioned above, he masters the art of using weapons skillfully and is pro at war.
There are numerous other superhero characters and therefore, it is possible that your favorite ones are not mentioned in this article.
Popularity of Marvel superheroes can be reflected by the fact that even opposite gender characters have been introduced for some popular figures. Examples are She-hulk and Spider-woman.
One of the reasons that parents don’t mind their children being fascinated by these characters is that most of them are portrayed as being involved in activities that are morally correct. The credit for this goes to Marvel Comics who created such heroic figures that caught the attention of masses.
We hope that a review of some of the best Marvel superheroes made you smile and relive your childhood for a moment.
