Marvel comics has been a classic for over 50 years. Names like Spider-Man and Captain America have become household names, sparking the imaginations of young children for generations. After all, who doesn’t want to read about ordinary people who discover they’re as powerful as gods? Whether they’re moving mountains - literally - or fighting off supervillains bent on destroying the world, superheroes have become the stuff of hundreds of comics, dozens of blockbuster movies, and millions upon millions of hearts.

The popularity of films like The Avengers has pushed Marvel heroes even farther into the mainstream, but the characters we see fighting evil on screen are only a portion of Marvel's most powerful heroes. Slowly but surely we'll probably see each one of these superheroes get their time to shine on the big screen. Many of them have already gained massive popularity among fans new and old, and one thing every comic book lover enjoys is arguing about which hero is more powerful than the next.

Steve Rogers had the same childhood dream as any American - to fight Nazis - but he was too weak to enlist in World War II. He was apparently so devastated about this that a mad scientist called Abraham Erskine wanted to use him for Project: Rebirth that would create super soldiers. Rogers was the first and only of this race because Erskine died without revealing his process to anyone. Captain America did the Nazi-fighting thing for a while but became cryogenically frozen in an ice block, where the Avengers found him decades later. He quickly became their leader.

Imagine this: you’re an ordinary middle-aged man living a completely ordinary life and suddenly you remember that you’re actually one of the world’s greatest heroes. That’s what happened to Robert Reynolds, who began to remember that he was actually the Sentry and that his arch-nemesis the Void was coming back. He started asking around, and as other superheroes’ memories of him began to resurface and the public became aware of him again, Reynolds discovered the real reason why nobody had been able to remember him: the Sentry and the Void were two halves of the same being, and when the Void had tried to destroy the Earth before, Reynolds had saved the world by wiping his memory from everyone on the planet, including himself.

Has your father ever been so disappointed in you that he forced you to share a body with a partially disabled medical student? Probably not, but Asgardian god Odin apparently felt that his son Thor needed to learn humility and did exactly this. Donald Blake, the human whom Thor inhabited, discovered aliens while on vacation in Norway and fled to a cave, where he discovered the thunder god Thor’s famous hammer Mjolnir. After smashing it into a rock he becomes Thor, only to learn that he had always been Thor and had simply been under Odin’s spell to make him believe that he was mortal. Using his hammer, Thor can summon lightning and open portals, and once he lifted the Midgard Serpent, which weighed more than half the earth, and tossed it into space. Now that requires real strength.
