Avengers: Endgame –
The events of Infinity War reminded the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe that there are forces greater than ourselves in this cosmic space that we occupy. It seems that we do not realize how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. Maybe that is the reason that Thanos chose to end half of all creation without thinking about these cosmic powers that could end him in an instant if they so desired:-
The Uni-Power is a sentient power that can be equated to the very soul of the universe. It is the object of worship for the caretakers and the builders of our creation and it often chooses virtuous heroes as its vessel. The only pre-requisite the power has is that the hero so wielding it may not use it for personal gain. And for the casual comic reader, this is the same power that inhabits Captain Universe Spider-Man himself.
14. The Black Vortex
The Black Vortex is not so much power as an artifact in the Marvel Comicverse. Created by the celestial Godhead the artifact holds enough power that its user may lay waste to entire worlds at a time. Gamora and Beast of the X-Men used it once to destroy the Kree homeworld but the catch is that the Black Vortex almost always corrupts it’s user’s heart. How very cliché of Marvel to create something like this.
13. The Phoenix Force
The less said about the Phoenix Force the better. Fans of the Fox X-Men franchise may already be privy to the destructive power of the Phoenix Force. It is a sentient cosmic power that chooses a vessel once in a blue moon and then that vessel is the hub of constant rebirth from then on. It is pure cosmic energy topped with pure malice. The evil and rage of the force are perhaps only rivalled by its pure strength. Even Thanos armed with the power of the infinity stones may find it difficult to rival a force such as this.
12. Celestial Energy
This is perhaps the most likely source of power that the Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes are likely to tap. Celestials have been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the advent of Guardians of the Galaxy and the movie even hinted at the reason for mining of Knowhere suggesting that massive cosmic powers that be harness certain kind of energy reservoirs that mere mortals cannot fathom. This celestial energy may form a big part of the fight against Thanos.
Fans of Captain Marvel know that Carol Danvers has a bit of a dual role in Marvel comics. She is a crusader for good and an honourable warrior and she has served as the protector of the earth for a long time but there is also an evil side to her. The powers of Captain Marvel work on energy absorption and manipulation. She is perhaps the only hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe capable of harnessing the power cosmic and bending it to her will. Binary is the malicious side of Captain Marvel brought forward when she absorbs too much energy and loses control.
10. The Infinity Gauntlet
The Infinity Gauntlet is a powerful artifact capable of unimaginable things. It has ended the universe and created entirely new realities. It has been wielded by numerous heroes including Captain America, Iron Man and even by Nebula once to defeat the Mad Titan himself in the original Infinity Gauntlet saga. It holds the power to shut down the Mad Titan once and for all if the heroes can wring it from the grips of Thanos.
9. Nova Force
The premise of this power fits completely perfectly in the current status of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From a destroyed Xandar Richard Rider arose amassing their knowledge and power. This became the foundations of the one true being yielding the entirety of the Nova force. Now although the first Guardians movie did have Nova corps, it did not mention anything about the Nova Force. But can the Marvel Cinematic Universe choose to use it come, Avengers: Endgame? Maybe.
8. The Ultimate Nullifier
The Ultimate Nullifier is a device in the Marvel multiverse to do exactly as its name suggests, to nullify any incoming force. The power of the device is so incredible that it is a closely guarded possession of Galactus himself. Will the world eater show up in Avengers: Endgame and more importantly, will his device be the redemption of the Avengers to adequately fight against Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet?
7. The Beyonder
Although the power of The Beyonder is solely linked to the being that wields it, there have been instances in the Marvel comic multiverse where some characters have used ingenious ways to harness this power and absorb it for their own personal gain. A most notable instance of this would be Dr. Doom taking hold of the power of The Beyonder to construct the battle world and delay the known apocalypse of the multiverse. What is interesting to note here is that even an Infinity Gauntlet wearing Black Panther could not do much against such a power.
6. The Quantum Bands
With all this focus on the quantum realm post-Avengers: Infinity War, it is a high possibility that a weapon may be forged through the energy of the realm if it is not used in time travel. If I were a betting man, my guess would be the quantum bands that hold the power to penetrate even the most resilient of substances in the Marvel comic multiverse. These devices may equip the Avengers with just the edge they need to battle the Mad Titan.
5. The M’Kraan Crystal
Since Iron Man is stranded in space and much of Avengers: Endgame will take place in the realm untold, it is possible that we get to see completely new civilizations. One that the fandom would like to see is the Shi’ar and their M’Kraan crystal that houses the pathway to umpteen number of realities. The idea of a reality-altering device on the side of the Avengers to rival the infinity stones is surely an interesting one.
4. The Heart of the Universe
Along with the Infinity Gauntlet, the heart of the universe is something that Thanos has sought in the past to further his own ends. The cube is pure cosmic energy comprised of untold and nigh unlimited amount of power. If it exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe then it may be the best chance the Avengers have to go against the Mad Titan and his Infinity Gauntlet.
3. The Power Cosmic
Since we’ve already talked about Binary, Phoenix Force and the Ultimate Nullifier, it’ll be a shame not to discuss the Power Cosmic itself. Typically held by the heralds of Celestials and other members of The Living Tribunal, The Power Cosmic reigns above all other forms of energy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It forms a part of Galactus’ power source and grants the user enough power to bring entire planets to their knees.
2. Crimson Gem of CYTTORAK
Typically wielded by Juggernaut in the Marvel Comic multiverse, the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak grants its user with unlimited raw strength and an unstoppable aura. The power of this gem is widely regarded as too great for a single individual and maybe that is the reason that Juggernaut is the unstoppable force he is in the Marvel comic multiverse.
Although the God of Thunder and the king of Gods has already used the power of this weapon to bring to bring down the Mad Titan, it is still probable that we might see this weapon being more abundantly used, come, Avengers: Endgame. It is highly likely Thor is the factor that tips the scales in the favour of the Avengers in the final battle. The vast power of Stormbreaker and the nigh-unlimited possibilities of using the Bifrost make Stormbreaker a weapon to be truly feared, even among the gods.
