Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 characters posing

Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 finally introduced Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, dramatically altering the balance of power in the expansive superhero franchise. As the end of the film suggests, Adam Warlock’s future in the MCU certainly seems bright.

After Warlock’s debut in Guardians 3, it’s clear that he hasn’t come into his full power yet. However, even in his infancy, Warlock is strong enough to be a worthy adversary for any MCU hero unfortunate enough to cross him.



10 The Guardians Of The Galaxy

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>

The Guardians of the Galaxy may have come a long way since their first attempt at heroism but they still have a lot to learn. Most of the Guardians don’t have any notable powers, forcing them to rely on strategy, tools, and weapons to defeat their enemies. While the Guardians’ tactics are effective against marauders and pirates, they have less luck with cosmic enemies.

The Guardians just barely managed to survive their battle with Warlock in Knowhere, only succeeding because of their incredible teamwork and knowledge of the terrain. Even with these advantages, Adam could have easily killed them all. Thankfully, Warlock has since joined the team and could even become one of the Guardians of the Galaxy’s leaders in the MCU.

9 Ms. Marvel

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Ms. Marvel, aka Kamala Khan, in the Disney+ MCU series

Ms. Marvel possesses mutant abilities unlocked by a mysterious family heirloom. The teenage Kamala Khan is now learning to hone her powers, including her “hard light” projections that can serve as shields, platforms, or even weapons. Still early in her superhero career, Ms. Marvel is training to use these powers to their fullest potential.

Ms. Marvel has a lot of potential but her powers aren’t designed to tangle with a Sovereign-bred killing machine like Adam Warlock. His immense speed and strength would be too much for the fledgling superhero. However, if Kamala levels up during her time with the Marvels, she’ll stand a better chance against an enemy like Warlock.

8 Moon Knight

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Moon Knight as he appears in his MCU Disney+ series.

One of the MCU’s darkest new superheroes, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, is a lethal fighter backed by the power of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Moon Knight’s powers include enhanced strength and apparent invulnerability, with his supernatural suit healing virtually any wound.

Most iterations of Moon Knight are street-level crimefighters, putting Adam Warlock in an entirely different class than the supernatural brawler. While the power of Khonshu could potentially give him a chance against a cosmic enemy, it is unlikely that Moon Knight would be able to gain the upper hand against Adam Warlock in a one-on-one fight.

7 Quicksilver

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver in a poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Pietro Maximoff was a Sokovian test subject who was given amazing abilities by Hydra, turning him into an enhanced human. As Quicksilver, Pietro could run at incredible speeds and overcome even the strongest enemies. Unfortunately, Quicksilver infamously sacrificed his life at the end of the Battle of Sokovia.

Quicksilver was incredibly powerful but still untrained in his abilities, making him an easy target for the likes of Adam Warlock. Furthermore, while not quite as fast as Quicksilver, Warlock also possesses heightened speed, which would serve him well in a battle against the Avenger.

6 Captain America

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Chris Evans's Captain America in the MCU film, Avengers: Endgame

Steve Rogers, also known as the MCU’s Captain America, is a super-soldier with enhanced strength, agility, and durability. However, he is far more powerful than his initial adventures suggested. The Avenger proved himself worthy of Thor’s mighty hammer Mjolnir, using its incredible powers to fight Thanos during the Battle of Earth.

While a Mjolnir-wielding Steve Rogers would certainly put up a fight against Adam Warlock, the cosmic hero would finish this fight. Adam is virtually invulnerable and would be able to take Captain America’s attacks in stride before finally finishing him with a powerful blast of cosmic energy.

5 Hulk

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Marvel's Hulk in the MCU in New York City

Bruce Banner accidentally transformed himself into the Hulk while conducting experiments on gamma radiation. The Hulk is one of the strongest heroes in the MCU, and at least according to the comics, his strength technically has no upper limit. When he’s angry, the colossal beast only grows in strength and power until he is able to overcome virtually any foe.

The Hulk is incredibly adept at smashing his enemies, but Adam Warlock appears to be invulnerable to almost any blunt-force trauma. While he’s not as strong as the Hulk, Warlock would roll with the punches long enough to find a way to incapacitate the raging beast.

4 Doctor Strange

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange in the MCU

Doctor Strange is a Master of the Mystic Arts and one of the leading sorcerers at Khamer-Taj. Using vast and powerful magic, Strange is one of the most powerful wizards to ever live. At one point, he was even entrusted with protecting the Eye of Agamotto, which contained the all-important Time Stone.RELATED: 10 MCU Characters Who Resisted Taking Revenge

As a Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Strange would have an early advantage against Adam Warlock, who doesn’t yet understand the vast intricacies of the universe. However, magic only goes so far, as Doctor Strange’s battle with Thanos proved in Infinity War. Unless Strange was able to take Warlock off the board early, he wouldn’t stand a chance in a prolonged battle with the cosmic hero.

3 Iron Man

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>RDJ's Tony Stark alongside the Iron Man armor in the MCU

Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, was a founding member of the MCU’s Avengers. Often considered to be one of the Avengers’ leaders, Tony crafted a legion of Iron Man suits, all with various amazing capabilities that made him a massive threat to all his enemies. Tony’s vast intelligence is even more potent than his weapons, though, and its carried him through his superhero career.

Iron Man may be quite adept at taking down enemies more powerful than himself, but he wouldn’t be prepared for Adam Warlock. The Avenger’s suits wouldn’t be able to hold up against Warlock’s powerful energy blasts, eventually melting from the incredible heat. If he had a chance to retool his armor for future battles, Tony might be able to come up with something. However, Warlock wouldn’t have much of a problem dispatching Tony Stark in their first fight.

2 Thor

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Thor fighting with the Asgardians in battle in The Dark World

Thor is the Norse god of thunder, who commands the power of lightning and thunder. At various times in his long life, Thor has wielded multiple mighty weapons, including the hammer Mjolnir and the battleaxe Stormbreaker. As an Asgardian, Thor also possesses immense strength, allowing him to even go toe-to-toe with the likes of the Hulk.

Thor has won more battles than any other MCU Avenger, but he also tends to rely on his brawn rather than his brain. Warlock is formidable now and he’s still growing. Thor often loses his first battles against new enemies and this pattern would probably repeat if he met Warlock on the field of battle.

1 Captain Marvel

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Captain Marvel looking serious in the MCU on the Avengers Endgame poster.

After being caught in an explosion caused by the Space Stone, Carol Danvers gained marvelous abilities that made her one of the MCU’s strongest superheroes. As Captain Marvel, Carol is incredibly strong and fast, while also possessing a host of other abilities, including flight, energy projection, and apparent longevity.

Captain Marvel is undoubtedly more powerful than the Adam Warlock depicted in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. However, given time to train and hone his abilities, Adam could very well conquer even Captain Marvel herself. Her energy-absorption powers would be Warlock’s greatest hurdle here but as he learns to control his immense powers, he could topple even the strongest cosmic Avenger.
