Why Captain Marvel Is Stronger Than Scarlet Witch In The MCU

  • They both got their powers from Infinity Stones, so why Is Captain Marvel more powerful than Scarlet Witch? Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant

    Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch are hands down, two of the strongest characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But there is a definite winner in terms of who is stronger on the big screen and we’d wager it’s Captain Marvel who is the strongest character in the entire MCU. Marvel has even said so themselves! But it wasn’t like that in the comics. In fact, Scarlet Witch was considered to be one of the strongest in the source material. A chief example of her strength came in the X-Men comic House of M, which saw her create a whole new reality and nearly killing all of the mutants on the planet with three little words. So what happened on screen? Why isn’t Scarlet Witch taking down names left, right and center? Well, the MCU took some liberties with the character’s backstories and essentially rewrote them. This time around, both characters can trace their superpowers to two of the infinity stones, namely the Mind Stone for Wanda and the Space Stone for Carol. Each stone affected them differently but granted them immensely strong superpowers. But Scarlet’s powers seem to have a limit on her while Captain Marvel can take down a capital ship and not even break a sweat. Is this because she was granted powers from a different stone? Because of the duration of the stone’s exposure? Or could it be because Carol is a Kree hybrid and her advanced physiology has given her an edge over the very human Wanda Maximoff? Let’s find out!

          Why Captain Marvel is stronger in the MCU, Because Kevin Fiege doesn`t know his source material and desperately needs a female lead for the next phase of the movies for Disney`s continuing virtue signalling. There that wasn`t so hard was it.

            Talking about Carol’s control over her powers in Captain Marvel. When we see her in 1995 with Fury, she has spent 6 years being trained specifically to control her powers by the Kree who have a better understanding of exactly where Carol got her powers so have more expertise.

            Wanda received her powers around 2014 after Age of Ultron? And while the people who gave her her powers were experimenting with the Mind Stone, it’s doubtful they fully understood what it was, and it’s less likely Steve would have known what exactly it was whilst training Wanda to try and control her powers more.

            So yes, Wanda has less control, but that’s because she wasn’t trained by people who understood just what her powers are and they’re full potential, which is different as Carol was trained by those who knew just what type of abilities and potential she had obtained from the Space Stone.

            I’m not gonna argue with the guys at Marvel, because it’s up to them and if they say Carol is the most powerful, they are gonna write her as the most powerful. But, it’s a fight that could go either way imo. If Wanda was given proper training and proper understanding of what her powers are (she’s literally spoken in the films about how even she doesn’t know what her abilities could truly do) she has the opportunity to be the most powerful in the entire MCU.

              I think this analysis fails to identify the different meanings of strength. Carol is a warrior, she has better endurance, and her physiology is more equipped for feats of strength. The stone grants her a boost on her endurance and strength, allows her to play, and to generate powerful energy blast. In terms of a fist fight, yeah Carol isn't going to break a sweat as quickly as Wanda. Conversely, Wanda's abilities in the MCU are more variable. She isn't as much a warrior, although she has gone through training so she can probably fight better than the average person. Wanda's claim to fame is her powers. Much like the Mind stone, she can mess with peoples heads, a feat captain marvel cannot do. Her attacks aren't as much an energy blast as a series of kinetic forces splintering onto every aspect of her target. Her telekinetic attacks can lift, move, and block things much more powerful than herself. Not to mention in Infinity war we see her not only destroy a stone, but hold off the mad titan who already had all the other stones, after fighting a massive battle. Captain Marvel has not been shown to channel that much energy. Captain marvel is very powerful (mostly through her energy blast (see endgame ship destruction) but I'd challenge that Wanda could probably beat her.

                captain marvel is really stronger than scarlet. captain marvel can absorb scarlet witches power energy. if scarlet witches power is 100% captain marvel will absorb it then scarlet witches power will turn 0% then its has no effect to captain marvel

                      Scarlet witch has definitely become more powerful than captain marvel. In avengers endgame Thanos kicked captain marvel's behind fair and square while scarlet witch almost destroyed him that he had to rain fire down on even his own people

                        @CHUKWUDALU ELOIKE do you think if a freakin meteor fell on Earth, Cap's shield would still be fine? No. That's the impact of the Power Stone, and much bigger.

                            I mean, like you said, Scarlet is discovering her powers and becoming stronger with each film.
                            So there is a possibility she will surpass Marvel. And I really hope she will.
                            Especially since Marvel not only instantly got the full power strenght after gaining her abilities, but she also knew pretty much immediately how to use them.
                            And that makes Scarlet Witch as a character too. We can see how she is growing in power and that she still didn't discover full potential of her powers.
                            Meanwhile Marvel is at the maximum of her power and got it immediately, which makes kind of no sense, especially how she got the hang of them so quickly, but it also means she can't grow stronger.

                            Scarlet should surpass Cpt Marvel with time. And I hope directors will make her stronger, because for me, Wanda is much better character than Carol.
                            Besides, I prefer Wanda's actress over Marvel's actress.

                                          Many people are saying Captain Marvel isn't that powerful. I get that she isn't the best character in the world and people don't want her to be the strongest, but I really shouldn't have to remind you that THE CREATORS OF THESE CHARACTERS THEMSELVES SAID THAT SHE'S THE MOST POWERFUL AVENGER!
