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!

      SPOILERS FOR ENDGAME....Based on Endgame, they needed CM twice: Once to save Tony Stark at the beginning of the film & once to destroy the ship that was firing on the whole lot of Avengers, including Scarlet Witch. She was pivotal to their defeating Thanos. You bring up a LOT of good possible reasons for her power being greater. It's probably a case of "all of the above", meaning that she had Kree blood, she took all that energy at once, etc. I wonder if her DNA was further altered or fused w/ Mar-Vell in the explosion in the movie?

            Captain Marvel is a Strong Female Character. Scarlet Witch is a Strong Character who happens to be Female. That's why.

                    Do not be silly, they did not see that when Captain Marvel was fighting against thanos he grabbed a gem and so he could defeat her, but she would be super unstoppable and killed him, the same would be with Scarlet Witch, if he used a gem he would defeat her too, duh


                    No sean tontos, no vieron que cuando capitana marvel peleaba contra thanos el agarro una gema y así pudo vencerla, sino ella sería super imparable y lo mataba, lo mismo sería con scarlet Witch, si el usase una gema la derrotaria también, duh

                        I think that both of them are more powerful then the other in different ways. Captain Marvel fought, Ronan's fleet and won

                        Scarlett witch held back thanos while destroying the mind stone.

                          The only reason y'all choosing Scarlet Witch because she's been in MCU longer and Marvel already show her power. Captain Marvel movie is just for introducting her to MCU. In comic, Captain Marvel can turn into a living star (binary form) and slice planet into two just like she destroyed spaceship in her movie and endgame. The first movie doesn't do justice for her, however I am sure Captain Marvel 2 (2022) will show how powerful she is.

                            If we consider fisiology as an actual thing, using her magic would surely make scarlett witch energy get drained, but lets see... whats ms marvel power again.. o yeah, the ability to absorb and redirect energy, so that actually explains why she can just spam her powers, after all if we see this from a physics view, theres always energy all around us, so she can just permanently absorb that energy as fuel to use her powers.

                              The Infinity stones are capable of rewriting the entire universe and Scarlet Witch was able to destroy it. Compared to that destroying a battlecruiser is childs play. remember Thanos said he needed to use the Infinity Stones to actually destroy the Infinity Stones and so far we havent seen Capt Marvel be able to actually destroy an Infinity Stone. Plus Carol seems to be at her peak now and Wanda is still growing in power, which she demonstrated by trashing Thanos, something even Thor nor Carol could do. I am saying Wanda is still more powerful, even in the MCU, plus if they fought Carol has no defense against any mind attacks Wanda does so the fight is over right there.

                                    i don’t think she was physically drained after destroying the mind stone - she was probably more mentally drained, you know from having to kill the love of her life and all

                                                  Also scarlet witch is not even almost at her full potential and look how strong she still is

                                                    I see people usually like scarlet witch more but they cant change what MCU has been trying to show us..Captain marvel is the most powerful avenger, thor is the strongest avenger and scarlet witch has most capability. Captain marvel can absorp powers like thunder etc..when you can absorp powers coming from the opponent then what is left next..btw they showed her small role in endgame because she has more important role to play in upcoming movies with new avengers..that was a teaser of her in endgame..ofcourse introduction in the first solo film..More solo films will be coming for cap marvel we all know that..
                                                    Captain marvel is stronger than scarlet witch btw.

The shadow king is a super powerful interdimensional being. He feared Wanda having an even more powerful child so he manipulated her and Vision to fall in love with each other.

                                                                                            Nah, Scarlet Witch is stronger. Captain Marvel is practically NAMED AFTER MARVEL SO OBVIOUSLY THEY'D BE BIASED TO HER!!! But still. I know Captain Marvel has all these superpowers, space stone thingy, tesseract, and blah blah and blah. But have you seen Wanda in the comics? How damn powerful she was? She'd totally beat Captain Marvel, that's for sure. And look, people, she held off Thanos with 5 stones. While destroying 1 stone. That's already overpowered, but she was nerfed so badly in the movies. And in the comics, she hasn't even explored her full potential yet. I will personally fight someone who disagrees otherwise.
