The superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had to face off against a pool of villains and their powerful friends as well. An average MCU film is filled with villains at every step that makes it difficult for each villain to get a proper closure. Not everybody could be Thanos, but still, Marvel superheroes are often seem to be fighting with multiple villains at a time. However, the screen time for all these villains cannot be consistent. That is why it becomes difficult for the viewers to predict their threat levels. Ideally, anyone out of these neglected villains can make a comeback in the MCU projects to complete their story or motive.
With that said, these are some of the many villains who were overlooked but could be dangerous at the same time –
Doctor Arnim Zola’s story between The Avengers and Winter Soldier is seemed to be the reason behind SHIELD’s fall. However, Zola’s ultimate job was to reveal the truth that he manufactured the reason behind the fall to Steve and Natasha. But, unfortunately, a missile strikes that eliminates him and allows Hydra to continue with its plan.
He was the only person who successfully pilfered Vibranium from Wakanda and made it alive. To do this, Killmonger helped him to break out of the prison. As a result, Klaue became more dangerous for the Wakandan people. He had a sonic weapon that powered him to go head-to-head against the MCU superhero, Black Panther.
While Grandmaster created a lot of trouble for the God of Thunder, Thor, Hela was undoubtedly the main villain of Thor: Ragnarok. Hela wanted to rule Asgard while Grandmaster was already living her dream. So apparently, Grandmaster could have been more dangerous because he was already ruling the world.
The most remembered character of Thanos’s Black Order was Ebony Maw. He was the one who captured Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War. And as we all know, taking down Doctor Strange is not an easy job but Maw did it, allowing Corvus Glaive to go after Vision. We have already witnessed the potential and power of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But still, in Avengers: Infinity War, Corvus managed to wreck Vision. Even in the battle of Wakanda, he was sent on a private mission to get the Infinity Stone from Vision when every other Black Order members were busy fighting the battle.
All the true Power Ranger fans know how dangerous Surtur could be. While he seemed to be starting small, his crown touches the Eternal Flame. That is how he becomes the ‘threat of cataclysmic proportions’. But we are well aware about the abilities of God of Thunder. He soon, along with his brother Loki, unleashes Surtur. But apparently, he becomes unstoppable with his new format, and that is ho Surtur crushes Hela and Asgard.
