Marvel has graced the cinematic universe for years. They produced a ton of blockbuster movies such as The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man 3, Spider-Man, X-Men: The Last Stand, and many more. And because of these blockbuster movies, Marvel’s characters became more known by the audience and has become the highest grossing film franchise in the world, overtaking the Harry Potter series.
Among those thousands of Marvel characters, not everyone was fortunate enough to be given a chance to make it to the big screen - mainly because not every character was published like a masterpiece. Also, although some of the weak characters were given a chance to appear in movies, even for a short screen time, not everyone was given epic powers unlike those high-profiled heroes we often see starring in Marvel movies. By this time, we already know who are the powerful ones, but how about the weakest? Here on this list, we give you the 13 weakest heroes in the Marvel Universe - considering their powers, abilities and gadgets. Some of these heroes are so weak, we hope that when the time comes that villains will attack, they are not the ones who would show up first.
Snowbird, the daughter of the goddess of the Northern Lights, would weaken if she would move away from Canada’s borders. Another reason why she is considered to be one of the weakest Marvel characters is that she can turn into a white version of animals - but only animals that are native in Canada. So how exactly is she going to battle a supervillain if she shape-shifted into a Canada goose?
Stingray would probably be one of the superheroes you wouldn't call when you got caught up in trouble. As you see, he has no powers, and he is also not good at any hand-to-hand combat – he is just an experienced oceanographer.
11 The Dazzler
Dazzler can convert any sound (except her own voice) to light. She is also a highly skilled athlete, trained singer, actress and dancer. Also, she is good at roller-skating. However, all of those abilities can do nothing if she would be confronted by one of the strongest villains in the Marvel Universe. All she can do is to blind you with her light-generating power.
In a universe where your enemies are demi-Gods, can throw fireballs at you, control your mind, can fly above your head, or even throw heavy things at you, do you really think that just having limited arrows and a keen eyesight can help you survive alone in a war?
Shadowcat, who is commonly known as Kitty Pryde, is often seen with the other main X-Men characters; she also starred in a few X-Men series where she was famously played by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand. But being commonly associated with the mainstream X-Men members does not mean she is considered to be as strong as Storm, Jean Grey, or Rogue.
Ironically, this secretive hero’s power is just to be forgotten. And because of his unique but quite weak power, he became unnoticed by everyone. Of all the Marvel characters, no one knows about his existence, even if he has been a member of the X-Men and even saved his peers many times. Professor Xavier even placed a reminder in his own mind to remind himself about ForgetMeNot’s existence every hour. However, when Professor X, the only person who has the power to remember him, died he got depressed.
6 3-D Man
What makes this character even more crippled than his Christmas-colored suit is how he appears with the use of Marvel’s version of 3D glasses.
Often mistaken as either Wolverine or Daredevil, Demolition Man (commonly known as “D-Man”) received his enhanced strength, stamina and durability, from the Power Broker Inc.; eventually, he decided to join the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation (UCWF) because he thought that he became too strong for normal sports after his abilities were enhanced. After his wrestling career, he trained with Captain America to become a superhero. His first hero costume was really intentionally designed to duplicate Daredevil’s first costume and Wolverine’s hood.
This hero boasts of his semi-telepathic and translation powers. He can understand and can easily decipher (obviously where Marvel got his name) any language subconsciously better than a non-mutant human – verbally or written; human or extraterrestrial’s language. He is also good in interpretation and decoding any computer software. Also, to be fair, Marvel made him good at hand-to-hand combat.
3 Awesome Android
This robotic enforcer, who is also known as Awesome Andy, was made by the Mad Thinker to destroy the Fantastic Four. He does not have eyes, a nose, ears, a mouth, nor hair. Powered by atomic energy, he has the ability to copy anyone’s powers – how awesome is that? He even copied Thor’s nobility and was able to lift Mjolnir.
2 Rocket Racer
Rocket Racer is a former criminal turned mercenary. He is not a mutant who has innate super powers, nor is he a product of advanced science experiments. Even if he has a jet-powered skateboard with gyroscopic stabilizers which can be controlled by his head-set and gloves that can fire four micro-rockets at the same time, still, he is not as good as Iron Man.
1 Almighty Dollar
This penny-throwing sidekick is not from the Richie Rich cartoon. Almighty Dollar can’t read minds, can’t fire lasers at you, does not have a super suit, does not have the ability to fly, he can’t pass through objects, he is not a demi-God, nor has he superhuman strength, but he can throw outdated currencies at you like a boss.
J.Pennington Pennypacker (Almighty Dollar’s real name) is a normal human accountant who was sent to a self-esteem camp and eventually he discovered that it was really a camp to develop superpowers. He was then given the ability to shoot money from his wrists. There were so many characters Marvel had created that they ran out of ideas.
